this moment was my favorite part of the entire show

A character archetype I cannot stand is the ‘slimy conman who takes advantage of a kid/someone less manipulative than him with powers that would benefit the conman, and is generally just a Loathsome Human Being until there’s a moment where the conman has to Prove Himself to the kid’.

I hate the archetype, because these types are just generally not good people - even though the narrative would have us believe they are. They’re perverts, immoral, and just generally not people I’d feel at all comfortable leaving a kid/someone impressionable with for any amount of time.

And yet - despite the fact that Reigen seems to fit into this trope - he’s my second favorite character in the entire series, and this conversation shows why.

The narrative doesn’t try to disguise the fact that Reigen is very much a fraud. It doesn’t hide the fact that he’s taking advantage of Mob’s powers for his own gain - in fact, Reigen as much as admits it in the above conversation!

But - and this is the important part - it doesn’t hide his good side, either. The narrative doesn’t wait until some ‘opportune moment’ to show that Reigen is actually a ‘Good Guy’, like so many other shows/what have you that use this trope do.

Mob’s power is useful to Reigen, but then he also turns right around and says but it’s useful to so many others, as well

He tells Mob that the kid has done some frankly amazing and wonderful things with his powers, and that it’s wrong for him to think that only bad things can ever come of them! Because Reigen has seen with his own two eyes the sort of good Mob can and HAS done.

Reigen reminds Mob that just because he has to be careful, doesn’t mean he should hate himself for what he can do. That he shouldn’t ignore the good he’s done in lieu of the bad.

Look, I’m just so glad that Mob found someone like Reigen. I really am.

Wanna One x Wanna City ep 4 [ENG]


Reactions: Spoiler alert!

  • Maknae line riding the paper on the 1st try: They are truly golden maknaes. Every single one of them. And the Jinhwi + Panwink piggy-backing!!! I love that PJH carried GL lolol~ 
  • Hyung line thinking they outwitted their maknaes: This is 1000% my favorite part out of this entire show so far. I swear I rewatched it at least 10 diff times and have reblogged every post about it. BEST MOMENT.
  • Hyung line singing on the stairs: The fact that they can sing so well so out of breath says a lot. But seriously, I would be so happy if they had a karaoke night or something
  • Daniel perking up at Minhyun saying ‘alcohol’: There’s my fellow alcohol lover (^_^)~ but I guess we know how Nu’est likes to party now don’t we? ;)
  • Daniel scolding Seongwoo after the pingpong relay: Daniel will not only sell his soul but also abandon Ongniel for food. What is love when dinner is on the line?

oah-schnapp  asked:

"what was your test on, again? hUMAN ANATOMY???"

Not only is this one of my favorite Mike Wheeler moments in the entire show, I love the part right before where Mike slowly looks up from his Eggo, eyes narrowed as he blinks at his sister, and sets up the roast with the coldest delivery “do a lot of studying last night?”  And when she answers he takes the opportunity and destroys her in 8 words.  There was absolutely no response Nancy could return with.  Mike won a hundred times over.

Gallavich fics list

Soo I said that I wanna share my favorite (so far) Gallavich fics. I tried to choose them quickly but ended up with 55 opened AO3 pages at 3 am, reading some reeeally filthy smut…. but finally here I am :D

These fics are listed in no particular order (except maybe first two) because they are all amazing. A few things at first: I read smut (don’t we all? ^^). There are almost none G-rated fics in my list. Some of them are pure smut but like…very good smut :D
I also like a good slow burn, so prepare to suffer while reading.  
And this is the list of MY favorites, I’m not telling these are the best in the fandom, there are so much more wonderful fics. Go find your favorite! ;D 
(And I will be just extremely happy, if someone tells me their thoughts, opinions about those fics after reading, or suggests other works, or anything!)
Ok enough blah blah.

  1. Waiting on My Own Too Long Series by Ride4812 
    One More Night
    Something More This Time
    No More Lonely Nights

    This is my absolute favorite thing, after-prison future fic. This is just perfect. These three big fics deal with all the issues that could possibly happen, when you meet the love of your life after an 8 years break-up. What I love about it, that it’s all in character and realistic, not just “let’s hug\fuck and forget about everything“ thing. It deals with lack of trust after betrayal, bipolar thing, Yev, Gallaghers not liking Mickey, Yev growing up and asking questions and everything else. Nnnnice.

  2. The Increasingly Poor Decisions of Ian Gallagher by Shamelessquestions (KagekitsuneXXX)

    This is my second absolute favorite. I don’t usually like AUs… but this is so good! It’s not for nothing that this author wrote the first and the second (and the fourth :D) highest kudo-rated fics in the fandom (talking about AO3 only). This is so interesting to read, such a good quality of EVERYTHING, so surprisingly in character despite the AU! And I loved that we get to see all the Milkovich siblings in action. So many great new characters, everybody is soo charismatic. It’s like I’ve read an entire new series! I’m just really passionate about this fic sorry x)

  3. Proof by pink_ink

    That’s my favorite “canon smut”, it shows all the offscreen relationship development and fills all the sex scene gaps till Frank’s invasion. That’s so canon you wanna cry when you read it. 

  4. The New Year Series by LanJevinson
    The New Year
    Bird Set Free 

    A very nice after-prison future fic. 8 years are taken away from Mickey’s life. The second part explores what Mickey had to deal with in prison. There are many dark moments.

  5. Friends by zankiefanatic

  6. Gallavich deals with all the possible life problems that you can have from 5 to 50 years of age. The fic is not complete yet, maybe we will see them in their eighties :D

  7. Mandy in the Middle by Shamelessquestions (KagekitsuneXXX)

    I suggest to check out all the Domestic Bliss series by this author. 

    “Look, he’s a really nice guy…” Pete warmed into presenting his case. Again, Mandy shut it down immediately.
    “He’s the absolute sweetest, but he will also crack open your chest, rip out your still beating heart and present it to my brother in some kind of weird form of foreplay. Seriously, do not go down this road, Pete.”
  8. The Miseducation of Derek Hill by Shamelessquestions (KagekitsuneXXX) 

    A hilarious domestic future fic, jealousy issues.  

  9. Boy In The Box by Mellow_Yellow

    An unexpected and sometimes really dark plot, AU. The Milkovich family centered.

  10. Show Me, Baby by Ride4812 

    Not so lately finished AU with age difference (Ian is older here). That’s everything that young Mickey deserves…

  11. Minute by pink_ink

    It’s not even explicit written but such a sexual small thing. I just love how this author always makes you almost physically feel written sentences.

  12. Restoration by pink_ink

    Long slow burn AU by the same author as above. <3

  13. Life, or Something by pink_ink  

    Long slow burn AU by the same author as above but dark.

  14. Our Stubborn Love by TheWaywardBride 

    Great after-prison future fic. I like how differently Gallaghers react to Mickey’s return here, very in characters.

  15. Is There Somewhere by andchaos

    Soulmate AU which I usually don’t like but this one is so good! This is just amazing how the author managed to make Ian mute (not a spoiler, it’s written in the description) but still a chatty puppy as he is. 

  16. First Day of My Life by Ride4812 

    A post 7x11 fic. Mickey didn’t break out of prison, he’s an agent now, it was all a test. I’ve seen many people on Tumblr speculating about that. 

  17. The Sex They Should Have Shown by Ride4812

    Everything is in the name.

  18. coup de foudre by Ride4812

    I think this is the 7th fic by this author in my list. That should say something. Thank you, wonderful person!

  19. Give Me Love by zankiefanatic

    Just a really nice and hot Artist\Model AU.

  20. dried ink by orphan_account  

    A future after-prison fic. Sloooow burn. A lot of feels. So good!

  21. On Ice by ElfyDwarf

    Ice-skating AU I didn’t know I needed. Many great original characters, great humor, really hot smut. Mickey deserves it so much!

  22. The Casanova Catering Conflict by horror_business 

    Another great AU, a really hot slow burn. A lot of food descriptions, do not read while hungry ^^

  23. Closer by ElfyDwarf 

    Do you like smut as much as I do? This is the smut of the smuts. I think I teared up a little bit while reading.

  24. Good Vibrations by Lockmyheart 

    This is just wow. (smut).

I have to stop myself here or that will be A LOT. Please read and enjoy. 


I have not read most of these, but I am always more than willing to share recs! :3 Thank you for this list, darlin! I’m sure they are great! <3

So I was one of those people lucky enough to see the Les Mis national tour a couple years back where Jason Forbach played Enjolras and Joe Spieldenner played Grantaire (you know, the ones that fell in love and two months ago got ACTUAL MARRIED) and I just remembered that in the show during “Bring Him Home”, I noticed that Joe’s Grantaire was awake in the background, and he was crying and kind of looking toward Enjolras up on the barricade. Especially at the “if I die, let him live” part.

So the entire show the exr was overt and everything which was great, but this… THIS… I still consider one of my favorite exr moments of all time. Killed me dead. Joe and Jason are gifts.

BTS, Part 1

To celebrate them winning, I’ve decided to go over a few of my favorite BTS videos. I’ve loved them for a while now and it is so amazing to have seen them grow to where they win an international award. I’ll go in order from my favorite oldest to newest videos.

No More Dream

  • This was their debut video and let me tell you, they were all babies when this was released. Jungkook was only 15 when the song was released. This era of BTS was definitely more hip-hop than now, but it was their beginning. They were the ‘bad boys’ in the mv. From the dancing to the song itself, it is very fast paced. Even this early on you can tell that these seven boys had so much potential to grow. 

Just One Day

  • Album: Skool Luv Affair
  • This was the second title song for their third album, compared to the first title song this one is much softer. It is a softer than “Boy In Luv”, which is the first title track. Everything from the outfits to the video itself is a complete contrast to “Boy In Luv.” I love the simplicity of this video, it adds to the beauty of the song. Most of the effects are shadows. The boys use chairs in this dance which makes them seem even younger. 

War of Hormone

  • Album: Dark&Wild
  • They are back to being bad boys, but this is a little different than the first three albums. They have begun to mature with their sound in this album. What I love about this video is that it mostly done in one take. It adds such a cool element, which they later used for the “Save Me” video. The song is one of my favorite BTS songs. The filter they used makes certain colors pop out more than others, which had you noticing the details. All in all, this video is one of my top favorite kpop videos.

I Need U

  • Album: HYYH: The Most Beautiful Moment In Life Part 1
  • Ah, the video that defined an entire era of BTS albums. This was the video that kickstarted all the theories surrounding the story that is the videos of HYYH. It is a very abstract video. The verses show the members struggling and suffering alone, but the chorus shows them together and happy. The extended version of the video is my absolutely favorite version. It is rated 19+ for a few reasons, this video does touch on topics not many do like abuse and suicide. It is the song that gave BTS their first win. This is a complete turnaround from their previous album.

Part 2 is coming soon!

I have a request please! Having a night in with Harry and showing him your favorite movie but he keeps closing his eyes and you keep yelling at him to wake up and pay attention because he's missing the best part and he's like "I'm just resting my eyes for a second" so you decide to get creative 😏

Finally.  A night alone.  You’d been looking forward to this all week.  Harry texted you about 20 minutes ago saying he was on his way home.  You were giddy with excitement.  It had been ages since the two of you had even a moment to be together much less an entire evening.  

You had it all planned out.  He was bringing home dinner which you would eat by candlelight out on the back patio with a bottle of wine you’d picked up earlier.  Then you’d show him your favorite movie.  Then maybe a bubble bath together where you could talk and discuss your week.

It was going to be the best night of your life.  You just knew it.

Your heart sped up the moment you heard the garage door open.  In moments Harry would be in your arms and there would be nothing to get in the way of your perfect night.

He just about dropped the bags of food he was holding when you threw your arms around his neck and planted a kiss on his lips the moment he walked through the door.

He smiled as he pulled away,

“Almost made me drop dinner, Love.”

You pecked another kiss to his mouth,

“I am so happy to see you.”

He quirked his brows,

“Apparently.”

Dinner was everything you imagined and then some.  Harry was affectionate and sweet and talkative and he wanted to know everything about your day and week that he’d missed.  He listened to all of it, even your stupid stories about things happening at the office with Nancy and Daniel, two people you found to be uber annoying yet were forced to work with.

You know, I do feel like a moment has to be taken to clarify something about Transformers G1: It was corny (it was the eighties), but it was, for the most part, a good kind of corny. It had its oddball moments or entire episodes (Kremzeek; B.O.T.). BUT it DID have its high points. I actually count the episode "The God Gambit" as one of my favorites (it really helped define Astrotrain as someone more than just a space taxi).

It was a good kind of corny, yeah, I can agree with that. But, like many other shows of the period, the logic of some episodes is just…well, there isn’t any.

But that’s why it’s so funny to get my younger sister to watch those with me. Watching the confusion and horror on her face while I just opt not to explain anything she’s seeing until later. She saw the one with the Optimus Alligator. There were Concerns.

Being overweight never really bothered you, and it certainly never bothered Michael. He loved your curves and rolls, the way your waist flowed perfectly into your hips and the smooth dents in your thick thighs. Though you knew you were beautiful and Michael never let you forget it, you had your bad days; the days where the comments from “fans” tore you apart and made you feel like shit. You could’ve been someone of “ideal” beauty standards and you would’ve felt just as bad, because what they would say was brutal. It could tear anyone to shreds, and sometimes, it would bring you down. Michael would take to twitter and Instagram, calling out anyone who had anything but praises to say to you. He would write paragraphs on how you were purely beautiful and he had nothing but love for you, shutting down every rude comment he saw immediately. But after posting a photo of Michael and yourself, your Instagram was under attack. People were spewing hate like venom, stinging you slightly but mostly just making you roll your eyes, because at the end of the day, Michael was yours. All yours, and he loved every thick, chunky, squishy part of your body. Michael was more upset than you were, trying his best to figure out how to make them stop; how to let you know how wrong they were. You excused yourself from Michael’s grip on the couch, walking to the bedroom and taking off your jeans. You were left in your lacy black cheeky underwear. You stripped off your t-shirt and sweater, pulling on Michael’s largest flannel; the one that fit you just right. You sat on the floor in front of the large mirror, positioning yourself just right to where your entire ass was showing off. You put your middle finger up, snapping a few pictures and posting your favorite one. “You are so sexy,” Michael gushed, grabbing your ass in both of his hands. “And I love the way you look in my clothes, Princess.” In that moment, Michael only wanted two things. He wanted you to be happy, and he wanted your thick thighs on either side of his head. Fuck yeah, you were thick as hell. And you loved every single part of it.

"Pam, you're so pretty."

It’s hard for me to remember that sometimes I watch other TV shows. That other TV shows came before The Mindy Project. But I did, and they do, and those shows have so much merit to them and so much to appreciate that I feel like I don’t normally feel like talking about.

But today I was thinking of this scene from The Office. It’s one of my favorites and one of the most romantic scenes within the entire show.

Hey! I recently got into critical role, I'm listening to episode 27 as I type this. I'm trying to get my sister into it and I was wondering what are some good episodes or funny moments to show her before starting it chronologically to really get her hooked?

Critter send in some moments/episodes to share! 

I will update this list with other suggestions if they’re sent in but some of my personal suggestions would be… 

  • Parts 1-4 of the Trials of the Take are fantastic, without missing out on much of the story or giving spoilers I believe.
  • Grog vs. Kern in Hubris. Who doesn’t love a good fight? (Beginning of the fight is around here if you wish to skip most of the talking)
  • THE REMATCH!!! Grog vs. Kern, the second go. Seriously who doesn’t love these fights?
  • Vax and Scanlan assassinate the Illithid in Attack on the Duergar Warcamp. This is one of my favorite moments from the whole show, had to put it in here.


Hamilton Q & A 7/18/16

Ok here is the list of people I saw: 

Miguel was amazing, Alysha was amazing, Austin was amazing, Seth’s French accent was a little questionable and it completely went away during Guns and Ships but overall he was really good for both Lafayette and Jefferson, and I felt like Andrew didn’t have quite enough swagger for Laurens or Philip but he was really funny as 9-year-old Philip and his death scene was good but I’ll talk more about those later. Alysha had really good chemistry with Renee and Jasmine and basically everyone worked really well together onstage. It was kind of sad in the opening number though because only Oak, Alysha, Chris, and Miguel got the huge applauses and the other replacements didn’t really get much.

It’s in between Dear Theodosia and Non-Stop with no pauses before or after so Eliza and Laurens come out during the last notes of Dear Theodosia and then as soon as the scene is over they launch right into Non-Stop.

Ok so basically after Philip gets shot he hunches over and then he goes upstage and lies down on a stretcher table thing that’s moving on the turntable so he ends up downstage center and stops and then Hamilton comes in and talks to him and then Eliza comes in and they’re both leaning over him and crying and then when Philip dies Eliza throws her head down next to him with her arms over him and screams and then Hamilton hugs Philip and puts his hand on Eliza’s and she pulls it away and then I don’t remember exactly how they transitioned to It’s Quiet Uptown but then it’s basically all the ensemble people around the edges of the stage with Hamilton in the middle and Eliza offstage until she comes in halfway through and they have their moment in the garden and she takes his hand and by the end of the song they’re literally clinging to each other and leaning on each other for support and it’s heartbreaking. Also it takes Oak/Madison a long time to recover so he’s dabbing his eyes for the entire first part of Election of 1800.

1) The rewind in Satisfied was amazing I think that was my favorite staging of the whole show. Basically when they first start rewinding they use the outer turntable so the dancers and everyone is spinning around Renee who’s standing still in the middle with the glass still in her hand and then they start to redo the blocking for Helpless, but all backwards which was AMAZING they did all the little detail dance moves backwards and they went all the way back to  A Winter’s Ball and then they did it all forwards again while Angelica told the story from her perspective and it was incredible.

2) Young Philip is hilarious because he is not convincing as a 9-year-old but that’s part of the point so basically at the beginning of Take A Break he’s sitting at the piano with Eliza behind him and they’re singing and then she sits down with him while Angelica and Hamilton write to each other and then Eliza comes and talks to Hamilton at his desk and when she says “your son is nine years old today” Philip stands up and gets a big laugh because he’s obviously not nine years old especially tonight because Andrew Chappelle is. significantly taller than both Miguel Cervantes and Alysha Deslorieux so the whole thing is intentionally ridiculous.

Washington calls Hamilton into his office and they’re just facing each other and talking with a little basic blocking for most of the first part. When Hamilton starts writing the farewell address, he’s downstage center and Washington is way upstage and Hamilton walks slowly backward and Washington walks slowly forward and it lines up with how they’re singing so that by the time Washington takes over he’s completely downstage center in the spotlight. When Hamilton walks upstage Eliza and Philip come join him and Jefferson and Madison are there and some of the ensemble is there in couples and groups and they’re all watching Washington and singing “George Washington’s going home” and it’s so emotional and powerful. Also tonight Chris Jackson put a lot more emotion into “the nation learns to move on” he made it sound like Washington had thought about it a lot and didn’t really want to do it but knew it was the best thing for the country and it was so powerful.

While Eliza reads the letter on the floor of the stage Lafayette and Mulligan are some onto the balcony while they’re reading the letter and they don’t draw too much attention they just look really sad about it and Mulligan takes a shot but most of the attention is on Hamilton and Eliza and Laurens’s ghost on the bottom part.

It was everything I could ever want and more it was SO AMAZING I can’t even explain it. I didn’t actually see any of the new permanent cast members but I saw Miguel Cervantes who’s going to be permanent in Chicago and I felt like he didn’t do anything too different, but he got really aggressive in some of the aggressive parts like during Room Where It Happens when he’s yelling at Burr he seemed like he was really attacking him which I liked personally. 

Anthony wasn’t there unfortunately but Jasmine was dancing with Andrew and I was imagining how cute it would have been with Anthony does that count?

Other Notes:

  • Austin Smith broke during The Adams Administration when Rory was doing a dance to the beat and he didn’t even try to hide it he just laughed through his lines it was so funny
  • Miguel Cervantes is really short which makes it more realistic and also really funny because Chris Jackson is really tall so during Meet Me Inside when Hamilton says “call me son one more time” he tries to get up in Washington’s face and he’s ready to fight but also he has to look pretty much straight up to see Washington’s face and I feel like that’s pretty accurate
  • Jasmine Cephas Jones’s voice is even more amazing live just imagine that
  • During The Schuyler Sisters Peggy is really upset at the beginning and she’s stomping everywhere and her sisters are trying to convince her that it’s ok and it’s all really cute
  • There is so much going on on the stage at all times it’s kind of stressful to try to see everything so you just have to accept that you’re going to miss a lot of details but whatever you do focus on is going to be amazing
  • Everything is amazing and I can’t even think of what else to say there’s too much I just need to go sleep

CS + Jealousy

Dedicated to the sweet ianthephoenix and also requested by Anonymous.

I have a confession to make regarding this word, this would have been the word that I would have chosen actually and I promised myself that if no one is gonna ask for it I’ll make at the end of this project this gifset as my own word choice. (and BTW, I still plan to do that with a different word at the end of this project :) still no clue which one ).

If there is something I love seeing on TV it’s jealousy scenes. Of curse not the heavy “I don’t trust you” jealousy but something a la captain swan. I just think that it says so much about how the person feels. For example Emma out side of Granny’s. Up until then she was playing all hard to get and confused and it even led Hook to move aside and give Neal a chance with her. But at this moment with Tink, all her feelings were revealed. I think jealousy does that to people. When I get a little jealous over a guy that’s when I know I really have a crush on him, so I guess for me jealousy scenes always reveal the true feeling.

And lets not forget that we were meant by the writers to know how Emma truly feels specifically at that moment when she was about to meet Neal for their lunch date. We were also meant to see Hook looking at Emma and Neal talking in Neverland, because the focus was on Hook’s jealousy and not on the Emma-Neal reunion. So the way I see it, those scenes always give a conformation of a canon couple.

And one last thing I have to say about this gifset. Hook’s jealousy on Past!Hook was my ultimate favorite part of the entire show lol, so there’s also that :)  

Send me a word and I’ll make you a CS gifset inspired by it.     

Full “CS + word” list made so far

Chris Colfer reflects on 'Glee' and Cory Monteith: 'He really was the big brother I never had'

Friday marks the final episode of Fox’s musical phenomenonGlee. Chris Colfer, who has played Kurt for all six years of the series, was right out of high school when the show first began. Kurt and his on-again/off-again boyfriend/now-husband Blaine (Darren Criss) became pop culture icons with their groundbreaking gay romance. On the eve of the finale, EW talked to Colfer about Glee’s roller-coaster ride and what he’ll remember the most.

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: Do you remember your audition?
CHRIS COLFER: I was 18 but my dad was still driving me because I was too afraid to drive in LA at the time. I will never forget – Lea Michele, who I’d never met before, was in a Mini Cooper in front of us pulling onto the lot. I recognized her instantly because I was obsessed with Spring Awakening when I was like 14. We both got turned away because we weren’t allowed to park on the lot. She was in the callback with me and I could hear her singing in the next room over. I went in, and the rest was history. There’s a whole story about how Ryan [Murphy] saw me and said, “Why do I have a feeling you’ve been in The Sound of Music?” I sang and made a joke about my hometown, and the rest is history.

What do you remember about shooting the pilot?
I remember what an education it was because I had no idea how television worked, I had no idea how filming something worked, and I had no idea how skinny jeans worked. So it was a very painful education. I remember calling my mom and being like “Gall, we work so long, I mean I got there at 6 and I didn’t leave until 8 o’clock at night. And oh my God my legs are just throbbing from those jeans they’re making me wear!”

You were right out of high school, weren’t you?
Yeah, I had just graduated in June and I think I got cast in August. I had been in college for two weeks and added to the dropout rate.

What are some of the touchstones you remember from that first year?
It was such a blur because we were working so much. That first season, when everyone was kind of getting the hang of the show, it was like 80-hour weeks. On top of rehearsing and recording in the weekends. On top of touring every chance we got. It was such a haze that every time something new would happen, it was just so hard to grasp because I think we were all in this exhausted dream-like state. I think the first thing was when Fox decided they were going to air the pilot after American Idol. That was a huge deal and we were like, “Oh, they really must think that the show is good.” And then that night when “Don’t Stop Believin’” became No. 1 on iTunes, I think that was the big moment. Honestly, strangely for me, I had never really been surprised at the show’s success because I had been one of the kids my entire life that the show was about. I was surprised I was a part of it.

Do you have a favorite number?
“Defying Gravity” I think will always stand out just because that storyline to the character was something I had lived through. That was super special. To this day, I think one of the best things the show has done is portrayed the relationship between me and Mike O’Malley – the Kurt and Burt relationship. I’ll never forget, when I first got the script and I saw that he accepted Kurt for who he was, I got so mad because I was an actor and I was like, “No! I want a scene where I get kicked out and I’m crying! And I’m so emotionally distraught! That is what I want!” Little did I know it was something good for mankind.

Is there an episode that stands out in your mind that you’re proud of or you love?
Well, if I can be selfish, I loved the one that I got to write. Just because it was so much fun to do because I got to fly and I got to work with Tim Conway and Billy Dee Williams and June Squibb, and I got to put words in their mouths. But, also just the early episodes – like the Gaga episode and the “Preggers” episode with the whole “Single Ladies” thing. Those are just the best for so many reasons.

Can you still do the “Single Ladies” dance?
I’m sure I’ll be doing it in Bar Mitzvahs until I’m 50. Like, there’s gonna be an article on BuzzFeed or something that’s like, “Glee stars: where are they now?” And I’ll be in my 50s, at a Bar Mitzvah, doing the “Single Ladies” dance.

Do you have a favorite memory of Cory Monteith?
He really was the big brother I never had. I have to say – I hope I don’t get emotional – I always felt so respected by Cory, and I think being a young gay kid, I’ve never really felt respected very much by older straight types, I guess. But with Cory, I think we just respected each other so much and we respected working with each other so much. I think that’s what I’ll always remember – the abundant respect that he gave everyone. I think that’s why it was such a hard loss. It was so hard to see betrayed when he passed away in his life – that didn’t represent who he was.

What was the most challenging of all these numbers you guys did?
The first one that pops into my head was the “Singing in the Rain/Umbrella” mashup. I’m shocked no one was killed, by accident or by murder. [Laughs] We were all pruning, we were freezing, and we had to smile and sing and dance. It was terrible.

I remember vividly when you guys did that Cee-Lo song, you sort of do a twist with Gwyneth Paltrow…
I called it The Goop. Also, that, the people we got to work with. I feel so ashamed because I wished I had worked with all these people on my second job because I borderline stalked everyone that came onto that set because I was so excited. I’m sure some of them have restraining orders against me I didn’t know about.

What’s your craziest Gleek encounter?
The tattoos are endless. They’ve been my face, a lot of quotes from my book so that’s personally, but for the show a lot of people have tattooed the word “Courage” or “Klaine,” which I try to tell everyone, “You’re going to regret that when you’re 40. You’re not going to care about us and you’re going to hate yourself.” I try, I try telling them. I feel like everyone has tried to get me to say that “Klaine” or Kurt and Blaine is groundbreaking, but I’ve never thought of them as groundbreaking because there have been so many famous gay couples and famous gay weddings in the past and I feel like it would be very ignorant for me to say, “Oh yes, they’re a groundbreaking couple.” What I think is groundbreaking has been the response to the couple. I remember when I first started being an actor and I first started Glee, I was told on many occasions, “Well it’s too bad that you’re gay because you’ll never get the young female following.” [Laughs] And boy was that proved wrong.

What was it like shooting the final scene?
It was, honestly, do you know the famous finale of The Mary Tyler Moore Show where they’re wrapping up and they walk towards the door? It was very similar to that and I don’t think any of us meant for it to be. It was difficult. It’s time for the show to end – I think we all agree. It has been a crazy, emotional, fantastic, exhausting, but fulfilling ride. We all grew up in that choir room in one way or another. It was so hard to say goodbye, much, much harder than I was expecting.

Can you qualify what Glee has meant for you personally?
I’m knocking on wood right now as I’m talking on the phone, but I have so many opportunities and things that are coming up for me and I owe it all to Glee. I would not be where I am today if it weren’t for it and I get really scared when I think about an alternate universe whereGlee didn’t exist because there’s no way I would’ve made such a difference, or there’s no way I would’ve been given any material that affected so many lives. It turned me into a role model, which was a very, very hard thing to embrace and accept at the time. It was the beginning of a great book, but a great chapter nonetheless.

What do you think the legacy of the show is? What do you think it has brought to pop culture?
I think it was just so out of the box. It was the first show that really showed a world and a group of kids that had never quite been seen before or as quite as authentically portrayed. I think any other time a group of performing arts kids has been portrayed, they’ve all been freakishly good-looking and they’ve all been flawless. And very much like Freaks and Geeks, we really represented something so real and authentic, and I think that’s going to be what it’s remembered for is being the voice to who – at the time – were the voiceless. It’s crazy to think about I definitely think Glee had – I don’t want to give Glee sole credit for this – but the world has definitely changed. Personally, when I found out that I got cast as the gay character on Glee, I had thought my career was going to be over because at the time, it was such a taboo for an actor of any age to play a gay character, and now you look and there are multiple gay characters on every single show. Bringing the struggle of kids that were bullied – I was bullied terribly in high school. I never thought the world would form a campaign to stop it. I never thought that voice would ever be heard. I’m so lucky and proud that I got to be one of those for a while.

You have a bunch of books coming out this year. Are they all part of The Land of Stories?
I have a young adult novel coming out – I think, I should ask – next year. This year, I have the fourth book in the series is coming out, as well as my first children’s picture book and two spinoff novellas are coming out. And then summer of 2016 is when the fifth and final book in the series comes out and I think I’ll have a young adult novel coming out around the same time.

anonymous asked:

I'm so happy they put the part when katniss cleans Peeta's wounds. It brought them closer in that moment and showed that Katniss really isn't afraid to be near Peeta and that she cares for his well-being even though she might not stay alive in the end and be with him.

This is one of my favorite Everlark moments in the entire movie, if not my very favorite. It’s so intimate. Katniss isn’t afraid of Peeta at all anymore. Not one tiny bit. She sees he’s still very much there, fighting to get back to her. 

The girl is all in. 

Of course, she’s planning to go off and probably (most likely) die trying to assassinate Snow. But for the short time she has left with Peeta, she takes care of him. She cleans his wounds. They’re not major… just chafing from his handcuffs. It’s not like he’s bleeding out at the neck or anything. She says she doesn’t want his wounds to become infected.  

Which means she plans for him to live while she dies… and that brings us right back to the night on the beach, in the Quarter Quell. 

Washing his wrists is an excuse to touch him, to be near him. She wants to be near him so badly, to feel his warmth and steadiness. She wants to believe she hasn’t lost him. 

He’s not afraid of her anymore, either. In fact, he knows he loves her. He’s only afraid of himself. He’s the monster. He’s the mutt. It takes everything in him to be able to make eye contact with her. Because he feels ashamed and defeated and broken in the mind and in the heart. He tells her he’s getting better, that sometimes he’s there. 

But then he tells her sometimes he’s not, and he tells her she should cuff him. He repeats it. “You should cuff me.” And the syllables drip with exhaustion and resignation and defeat. He feels like he’s failed her. 

The way she holds his hand with hers, gently, the way he allows his hand to be held, is beautiful. She rubs his shoulder consolingly. He looks at her, and his eyes say everything. 

Star-crossed lovers, these two, and in this moment they both know it… even if they think their love is unreciprocated. 

16 Days of Outlander - Castle Leoch

Oh, Castle Leoch! This episode was incredible on keeping with the momentum of the first and really immersing the audience into 1740s Scotland. I have several favorites for this one, I’ll do the honorable mentions first.

Favorite Minor Character: Mrs. Glenna Fitzgibbons

Favorite Scene: “Ye need not be scairt of me nor anyone else here, so longs as I’m with ye.”

This has to be one of my favorite scenes in the entire show. I love the intimacy between Claire and Jamie as she bandages him up and he tells her part of his story. In this moment you can see how much Jamie already loves her and wants her. He allows her that moment of weakness, and comforts her. Claire, already feels comfortable enough to break down, crying for the loss of the life she has unexpectedly left, and finds comfort with Jamie. She may not want to acknowledge it yet, but she’s already feeling the pull to him. Then he gallantly swears to protect her, even though he’s in a delicate position himself.

Just reliving one of my favorite parts of this season. 

The fact that everybody was SO supportive and rallied around him to listen to his troubles is AMAZING to me. 

This really shows that everyone in that house really cared for each other.

And Zach crying out of empathy. It truly was one of the sweetest mos heartwrenching moments of the entire season.

And I have to say I teared up when I first watched it.

It shows how very real the people in this game are, and how they aren’t just people for us to watch on T.V.

What is your absolute all time favoritest Doctor Who episode?

Ugh, that’s hard, but I honestly would have to go with the Series 5 finale!

(I’m cheating a little and counting both parts as one episode, cause it’s weird to say only half of the plot is my favorite)

Moffat at his finest, to me, anyway: great character, great plot, great atmosphere, and even my favorite music from the show is prominently featured in it.

Little Amelia specifically is one of my favorite characters ever, and the moment between her and Eleven (when he picks her up in the garden and does that monologue while she sleeps) is my favorite part of the entire finale, and by default, my favorite moment of Doctor Who (so far, anyway!)

Also, Rory punches Eleven in the face. I love Rory, I love Eleven, and I could watch that on a loop reel for an hour.

(Also, up until the big smile and the “Welcome back, Rory Williams!” look at how Twelveish Eleven is acting. I love it, it just shows they all really are the same person at the core of it. Honestly, kind of reminds me of Twelve’s whole “You were faking being heartless” thing from last week’s episode, Murder on the Orient Express)
