this movie gives me too many feels

A Few Tips All Writers Should Remember:

·Write to your comfort level. Meaning: give yourself a break when you need it and push yourself when you’re feeling motivated.

·Seek out sources of motivation. There are very few times when motivation hits me out of nowhere. Read a good book. Watch a good movie. Write down your goals.

·Find your space. Coffee shop. Library. Your room with the music blasting and the TV playing your favorite show. Find whatever gets you in the right headspace.

·Your first draft is just the first draft. Too many writers stress out about the first draft and they forget it’s just the first step in completing your novel. You can add to it, build from it, or toss it away completely.

·You will be rejected. Even if you write the next big hit, you’ll be rejected. Read the reviews for some of your favorite books—I guarantee someone HATED it. Not everyone will like your work, but that doesn’t mean it’s bad.

·Write advice isn’t for everyone. There’s no one-size-fits-all plan for writers. Pick and choose advice that works for you, ignore what doesn’t. Not everything will relate directly to you and your style of writing.

·It’s okay to stay in. Want a night to yourself so you can write? Don’t be afraid to cancel your plans and focus on your writing hobby. You don’t have to feel guilty about wanting to work on your writing.

·Let ideas settle. It’s tempting to jump right in to a new writing idea, but let things settle for a bit. Brainstorm. See what comes next. An idea needs to have legs and it needs to take your story somewhere. Let it grow.

·Outlines aren’t set in stone. Be flexible with your outlines. Plan if you need to, but allow yourself to explore new ideas. Let your story go in an unexpected direction.

It’s hard making friends as an adult.

I find myself wanting to be friends with other women out in the wild but never being able to find the right words to ask them to hang out. Most of the time I don’t want it to be taken the wrong way. I find myself asking if they have an instagram or facebook, perfectly normal networking conversations. But I want more. I want to hang out with them, go to brunch, movies, text! It’s hard following through with that aspect of a friendship. I don’t want to just have someone that will like all my selfies, I want them with me in the picture too. 

I feel like a major nerd with this, lol. “Hi, can we be friends? Like… can we hang out this week and go see Kong?” It’s so hard! I wish I could just say that but i’m more terrified of rejection with friendship than I am with relationships. 

I just want so many women to be friends with me, I have so much love to give and I want to support all of you, please be my friends.

Carmilla Movie “Initial” Reaction

I did make a video which I now have to edit and I’m going to have rewatch a certain scene a couple of times but anyway here are some of my thoughts:


Corsets!!!!!!!!! 👀

Domestic Hollstein is my favourite  (´⌣`ʃƪ)

Loving the cute parallels to the season 1 bad photoshop, love that little bit of cheesiness

Kirsch being clueless is honestly just so adorable

Mel and Carmilla’s levels of snark are high key relatable

Dropping those truth bombs like it’s Mel’s job

Oh yes let’s split up in a potentially haunted house, because that’s not the worst idea I’ve ever heard


I am still shook™ over that scene. SO.MUCH.GAY. this is the quality content we deserve!

Elise’s arms 👌

Soft girlfriends (´⌣`ʃƪ)

I have missed the dimwit squad being dorks.


Can we please stop making people watch others die please, I cannot deal with this.


All of their constant nightmare cycles and their responses are so fitting and it hurts me. This pain is delicious.

Also stop hurting me children!!!!!!!!

Carmilla being a vampire again???????? Um no thanks. Only if Laura is too ffs

I’m so, so, so glad that Mel got to kiss her girl. This makes me so happy.

Could Laferry please be canon confirmed already?!

The last scene before the credits was so soft and good.

10/10 guys!

Also that ending thoughhhhhhhhhhh! MATTIE MY QUEEN. Roadtrip? ROADTRIP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Here for it!

fuck this.  my body is a small, broken thing and i am exhausted and weak and barely making it through each day.

and fuck it all, i’m gonna be happy somehow.

i’m gonna wear inappropriately bright lipstick to class.  i’m gonna romanticize the fuck out of myself, say that i am a warrior and a superhero.  i’m going to eat chocolate and and put cinnamon in my coffee.  i’m going to buy myself presents for no reason at all. i’m going to tell my friends and my family that i love them and i am going to laugh with them and hug them and hold their hands.  i am going to watch my favorite movies over and over and i am going to see myself in the characters i love.  i am going to write and create things, even if i’m no good at it.  i’m not going to apologize for anything that brings me joy.  i’m going to take too many selfies and not feel embarrassed about it. i am going to congratulate myself for every day i make it through.  i’m going to tell myself “i’m proud of you.  you’re doing so well.  i’m not giving up on you.  ever.”

i swear.  i swear by this sick, weak body i am stuck in.  i swear by my shaking hands and swollen ankles.  i swear by everything in this enormous and apathetic and unforgiving universe.  i am going to be happy.

Movie Nights Are New

Little Fic for sin-tastein art!

“Which one should we watch the first or second?” “Just bloody pick one before I change my mind.”

The bluenette scrambles his decision before thrusting the rejects away messily on the tv stand, gently cleaning the disc before popping the sucker in. Looking back he smiles as Murdoc stretches his arms behind the ratty old couch stained from years of damage and made his way over. It wasn’t often he partook in one of his Grotesque films, if anything thing it was once in a blue moon, But he wasn’t going to complain if it meant doing something other than sweating over a torn up note pad in a room full of smoke.

Pressing play Murdoc gives a guff of acknowledgment towards the movie, scooting over a tad for his singer to sit by. As the movie starts up he gives a small smirk to the familiar soundtrack used for their very song A1.

“So unfulfilling, I was waiting for the drums to kick in” Murdoc announces quietly causing 2D to give a slight chuckle.

This is nice he says to himself as he catches glimpse at the other, tuned in fully to the story that’s been unwound a million times, noticing the soft heat emanating at his side,clenching up at certain scenes. No sound other than the blaring vintage disc as all bandmates were tucked away to their own devices.

“That’s you, your bub.” Stuart says out of nowhere pointing to the zombie chained on screen.

It takes Murdoc a second to comprehend what was said through his half sober mind but when he does he jerks his head to 2D in offense, watching as the singer laughed maniacally at his own joke.

“I’m sorry, i-it’s I know it’s not that Funny, but I cant its just so stupid that i’m picturing it” “Dents?” The Satanist asks with a subtle calm “Yeah?” “Shut the fuck up” “Im trying im sorry!” He yells again with more laughter than the last causing the Bassist to smile in return, leaning closer to the giggling mess.

Thirty minutes in and he grows bored and fidgety, noticing the man more closely at his side,when his breathing hitched in surprise, when his pulse speed fast, his senses were overpowered by butterscotch. He wondered if he noticed it too? He asked himself stealing another glance towards the man in question.

Not a chance this guy is balls deep in he replied to himself in defeat as he watches the horror junkie stare wide eyed at the screen.

He adjusts his posture hoping to reel Stuart back in but to no advances, there was a movement but only just a tad before he was sucked in again to the film. Biting his lip in irritation Murdoc leans down to his ear and gives a breathy whisper to the other, a smirk upon his lips.

“Im hungry.”

Dents looks to him in wonder There we- Before handing him the popcorn bowl with a smile. Go..

Numbingly taking the bowl he stares into the half eaten mess, dissociating for a good minute or two before asking himself what the hell happened.

Twenty minutes remaining and no such luck, In fact he gave up fifteen minutes ago (he knows, he’s been counting) and like always waiting was pure hell. He Rested his elbows on his knees in defeat,dragging his hands along his face while the Songbird relaxed against the back,arms behind his head. How long was this movie again?

He debated every so often if he should just put things in action, yet every time he looked to see the man happily enjoy the apocalyptic fantasy even he couldn’t pull him away. So like whatever man was left he waited, looking to the blue tuned dark hair in the low light room. His eyes traveled down the skinny frame leaving his mind open to all the pretty sounds to be made once you hit the right spot, if you touched the right places. Sitting, waiting, hardening.


Eyes blurred bloodshot to the screen as he watched the credits roll, feeling the Bluenette stretch his arms with a satisfied grunt.

“I don't know, I think the Night of living dead was better, jus got that- you know? That old horror movie vibe, It's all black in white?” Stuart says looking over to Murdoc for input.

Murdoc sits up and looks over to Stuart tiredly as the Singer gives a toothless smile.

“You hungry? We could get some fried chicken or somef-”

The hobgoblin interrupts his question by yanking him close, attacking him with a lust filled kissed to the cushions below.

‘Ow Mudz!,mudz..” Stuart chimes with a warning of his teeth,breathing the name a second time around.

He minded his teeth to only graze, using mostly his tongue to get the job done. Murdoc encouraged his front man to wander,smiling at the hands starting to grip his hair and back, kissing the tunes from the bluenettes throat. Delighted with his response he settles on a small patch of skin near his ear, not only to tease him more with the sounds of what he was doing but to feel the breath of his moans, he figured it was a win-win.

“Mu-mmm~ Mur-…”

With a final nip of the ear he lurked further, kissing at the exposed collarbone from the button up cardigan. As he pushed his hands under to explore the fragile frame he listened to all the little gasps his Star had to offer as he ran his nails over his ribs teasingly.

“L-lemme-” Stuart tries to talk through the heavy sighs.

Murdoc looks up and captures his lips once more,charmed as Stuart nipped for entrance, smiling at his obedience, the little surprise at his length of tongue, no matter how many times he’s exposed to it. Lavishing in the semi-controlling kiss the green hands began to explore further upwards tweaking at his nipples chuckling against the jolt of the man’s body.

Soothing into the touch he let the other continue his way, watching him open his shirt with the help of his teeth, nice little skill, good multi-tasking. He told himself as he rested his head back with another moan arching his back to the feel of the lips at his stomach.

Feeling the crisp air against his skin he hardened at the sight in front of him. He looked to the eyes glazed over in lust as the Bassist hook his thumbs into his underwear, confident to keep eye contact with every new hicky forming closer to the prominent bulge in his jeans.

Jesus how can he do this so calmly. He thinks as his face goes red

As soon as the zipper stops a hand in his hair halts his actions.

“I wanna, I wanna cum with you” he asks brushing the hair through his fingers.

Murdoc shifts their positions lying on his side and leaves kisses on his neck once more. A hand reaches under to grasp him and he nearly dies from the sudden relief.

“You’re too good for me Dents”

“Keep talking” He pleads as he shakingly goes to work on the others belt.

Murodc gives a rare moan as he finally feels contact to his shaft, mummering encouragements to each pull from the skillful fingers threatening to edge him to insanity.Thrusting his hand under the pillow he gets a comfortable leverage to the man’s hair while he reveled in the bliss that is his calloused hand.

“I couldn’t fucking wait till that damn movie was over, looking at you like that” He murmurs into his ear

“Imagining so many pretty positions for you~”Murdoc chuckles as Stuart grips tightly onto his cross, blush spreading down his chest as he quickens his hand.

“Anywhere my mouth could wa-nder-mnnff, Sweet Satan you might just kill me”

Burying his head into Stuart’s neck he tries to compose himself, finding it harder to do with the gasping and pleading of faster. He keeps his hand teasingly slow much to 2d’s discomfort and watches him buck into his hand to gain more friction. Placing soft kisses on the forming bruises he grips his dick tightly biting his lip at the others sultry moan.

“You do this alot, you grab my cross during stuff like this”
“I love it, especially when you ride me-when it’s balled up in your fist” one more full stroke.
“Fuck, plea-lease” He says clenching his eyes closed trying to relax against his demon like nature.

Figuring he had enough he quickens his pace, watching the relief wash over him, eyeing his body as it shakes with the much needed pleasure releases tentatively from the weeping slit. He was so close, and if he kept it up so would he.

As he thumbed the tip in small circles he felt himself starting to rise at a quickened pace as every movement suddenly felt so right, another moan slipped past as he whispered The singers name unevenly, Noticing that both their movements started to get shaky

2D came with a loud groan as he balled the chain in his first, biting his fingers against the noise while Murdoc hid his in the nape of his neck kissing out his high, mumbling sweet nothings against each peck.

“Perfect, your fucking perfect”

You’re learning my secrets, and I’m sharing my heart. Your arms give me protection, and I still feel them around me. I watch you, checking up, because I worry too much. I ask you too many questions, but you never complain. 
You’re slowly telling me about who you used to be. I’m learning about the person you’ve become. The one who has a tender heart, and warm arms to fall into. I’ve never fallen, would you be the one to catch me? I’m putting my faith in you, and I’m not scared. I’m a dork, but you accept it and encourage my quirky behavior. We talk about nights filled with movies and arms around my waist. I’m learning to trust you. I’m scared you’ll leave, but you promise to come back. Keep your promise? I’m wishing for more time with you, can we have that? // They say some secrets exist to be taken to the grave. I have your heart, so you can be mine and I’ll be yours. My arms aren’t made from gold, but you find value in dust. I could never thank you enough for it. You have every right to worry, I’m a handful of poems and only true readers will get me. Read in between my lines, you’ll find a kiss and a hug. Your curiosity is beautiful. Keep being curious, I’ll answer every question with honesty. I may be a different person, but loving someone will never change. That part of love will always be sharp. I love until my heart breaks and that’s deadly, but sweet if someone keeps me. I won’t always have a warm and tender heart, if I became ice.. Would you melt me? Keep me as snow and freeze me for next Winter. I’ll be your favorite snowstorm. I’ll catch you. I’ll catch you. Fall into my arms, I know I’m broken, but love me anyways? I have your faith, I’m not afraid. You’re my dork, I wouldn’t have you in any other way, but as yourself. Your true self. You. I have your trust and you have mine. One hundred percent of it. I promise. I’m not going anywhere. Where would I go without you? You can have all of the time in the world. The time when the universe was created. When the wars happened. When the dinosaurs died. When I was born. When we were only a speck of life inside another. When the world falls apart. When we fell in love. You can have it all. As long as I have you, time is, but a concept. As long as you love me, our story will have no ending. I do love cliffhangers, let’s be one. No spoilers, no end credits. Just you and I. The best kind of story.
—  When lovers write about the concept of time and how it’s meaningless without one another

I’m having too many feelings about Arya’s characterization on the show, so here we go:

I feel really, really strongly that D&D decided that Arya was going to be the “Strong Female Character” trope, and they took away all of her…softer character development/relationships and grafted them on to Sansa. It kind of reminds me of book Hermione and Ron vs. movie Hermione and Ron–by removing one character’s flaws and giving them another’s strengths, it shortchanges both.

So let’s just dive right in, shall we?

“I will remember, Your Grace,” said Sansa, though she had always heard that love was a surer route to the people’s loyalty than fear. If I am ever a queen, I’ll make them love me. 
-A Storm of Swords

So, Sansa knows that fear is no way to rule. That’s important. The thing is, this is pretty much the first time we’ve seen this sort of awareness from Sansa. I don’t know that, apart from Joffrey, we’ve seen her worry about gaining the love of others. She gets along well with other lords and ladies, so it’s never really been an issue for her, though at this point in her story, she’s being shunned by the court. Still, it’s interesting to see her realize that she should observe what Cersei does, and then do the opposite of it. 

How do you make people love you–specifically, people you rule? The phrasing of this is interesting, too. “I’ll make them love me.” Make is a forceful word. Compared to later in the series, when the Tyrells bring carts of food to win the love of King’s Landing for Margaery, make implies a certain amount of fear, or compulsion. 

The Bread Riots are the first time Sansa is forced to reckon with the reality of poverty in King’s Landing, and the first time she’s really confronted with the fact that people who have never even met her hate her. In a lot of ways, you could say it’s the first meaningful interaction she’s had with people below her station. She has maids and servants, of course, but up until this point I don’t think Sansa truly comprehends how fortunate she is. She still faces danger in the Red Keep. Any wrong move could result in being beaten and humiliated, but that’s danger of a different sort than starvation or rape or death.

Arya, on the other hand, is, from the beginning, defined by her ability to connect with people who are different than her. Unlike Sansa, who enjoys the people at court, nobles and knights and lords, Arya loves the smallfolk. Blacksmiths and butcher’s boys, cooks and horse masters. Not only is this important enough that Sansa comments on it, it’s so different from Sansa’s own worldview that it is spoken of with derision.

Sansa knew all about the sorts of people Arya liked to talk to: squires and grooms and serving girls, old men and naked children, rough-spoken freeriders of uncertain birth. Arya would make friends with anybody. This Mycah was the worst; a butcher’s boy, thirteen and wild, he slept in the meat wagon and smelled of the slaughtering block. Just the sight of him was enough to make Sansa feel sick, but Arya seemed to prefer his company to hers. 
-Game of Thrones

Everything Arya has done since this observation was made has only driven the point further home. Arya can make friends with anyone–from her tentative friendship with the Hound to her friendships with the Brotherhood to Lady Smallwood–as she continues on her journey, she has started to learn better how to interact with nobility, something Sansa has always excelled at. In Braavos, Arya is quite literally putting herself in someone else’s shoes. 

Cat had made friends along the wharves; porters and mummers, ropemakers and sailmenders, taverners, brewers and bakers and beggars and whores. They bought clams and cockles from her, told her true tales of Braavos and lies about their lives, and laughed at the way she talked when she tried to speak Braavosi.
-A Feast for Crows

Arya’s ability to make friends isn’t just a casual thing, either. Maybe it’s the wolf in her. Maybe it’s the nobility in her–chivalry in the classical sense–but she protects people. She looks out for others, to the point where she knows she might do better on her own, but they wouldn’t, and she can’t leave them. This holds true for people she knows:

She would make much better time on her own, Arya knew, but she could not leave them. They were her pack, her friends, the only living friends that remained to her, and if not for her they would still be safe at Harrenhal, Gendry sweating at his forge and Hot Pie in the kitchens.
-A Storm of Swords

“You leave Weasel alone, she’s just scared and hungry is all.” Arya glanced back, but the girl was not following for once. Hot Pie must have grabbed her, like Gendry had told him. 

The roof was gone up too, and things were falling down, pieces of flaming wood and bits of straw and hay. Arya put a hand over her mouth and nose. She couldn’t see the wagon for the smoke, but she could still hear Biter screaming. She crawled toward the sound…Jaqen saw her, but it was too hard to breathe, let alone talk. She threw the axe into the wagon.
-A Clash of Kings

And people she doesn’t:

“He is not a lord,” a child’s voice put in. “He’s in the Night’s Watch, stupid. From Westeros.” A girl edged into the light, pushing a barrow full of seaweed; a scruffy, skinny creature in big boots, with ragged unwashed hair. “There’s another one down at the Happy Port, singing songs to the Sailor’s Wife,” she informed the two bravos. To Sam she said, “If they ask who is the most beautiful woman in the world, say the Nightingale or else they’ll challenge you….”

…Don’t do that either,” said the barrow girl, “or else they’ll ask for your boots next, and before long you’ll be naked.”
…And suddenly there was a knife in the girl’s left hand, a blade as skinny as she was. The one called Terro said something to his fair-haired friend and the two of them moved off, chuckling at one another.
-A Feast for Crows

Arya’s training arc in Braavos is simply giving her better tools to do what she has always done: defend people. Superficially, yes, she’s learning how to kill people. The show seems to think this is the most important thing she learned in Braavos, but there’s more to killing people than just killing:

“Are you some butcher of the battlefield, hacking down every man who stands in your way?”
-A Dance With Dragons

As a Faceless Man in training, Arya is learning discretion, patience, and temperance. Particularly with what she saw as she traveled Westeros, this emphasis on the value of life, and the importance of not taking more than is needed, is pretty profound.

prompts on 14-year-coma pls?

I’ve actually gotten another ask for this, (which is weird, because 14 years is oddly specific… Is this for a fandom I don’t know about?) But I can definitely give a few more…

1. “The sad truth is, after this long, most people don’t wake up.”

2. “Do you have any idea what it was like? For 14 years, I could hear every single thing you all said to me, when you thought it didn’t matter.”

3. “Everyone has moved on with their lives. Me? I don’t know what to do with mine.”

4. “Why are there so many new superhero movies out?”

5. “Sometimes, things feel… Fake, you know? Like if I open my eyes too wide, everything will vanish… Again.”

6. “I remember when you were born, and now you’re taller than me. I wish I hadn’t missed that.”

7. “You… You still love me? After all this time?”

8. “Everything is so expensive now.”

9. “When I…. Went to sleep, I was a child. Now, legally, I’m an adult, and have been for years. But I just want to go back into my pillow fort.”

10. “When did this happen? When did everything change?”

11. “Sometimes… When it gets really bad… I wish that I’d never woken up. But then, I see all of you, and I… I wouldn’t trade this for anything.”

I hope these help! :)

brush contact, i: surveillance

on ao3

honestly i’ve wanted to write a spy au for a g e s and finally just sat down and started. the first two chapters are relatively simpler than the last two, so those might take longer to get sorted.


brush contact (n.) - a brief moment where two agents ‘meet' and quickly exchange information, documents, and/or equipment

Adrien really wishes that his father would inform him when there are new additions to the security detail. There’s something incredibly terrifying about being grabbed by the waist and yanked under a table. It’s more terrifying when it’s not someone you have mentally prepared yourself to be yanked around by.

“Cambric or calico?” he whispers to her.

She shushes him.

He shifts away from her. “Seriously, cambric or calico?”

“Seriously,” she hisses back, “I need you to be quiet. Now isn’t the time to talk about my fashion choices.”

Adrien rolls his eyes and inches closer to the table cloth, ready to run the moment he needs to.

So I’m watching “The Ring” and this whole movie is giving me some Anti vibes but not a lot…that is until I get to this scene.

Listen to everything Samara says. Picture her as Anti and when she speaks about her mother and father, the parents are us - the community, especially the father. There are too many parallels.

  • The doctor interviewing her says that she can’t leave until they find out what’s wrong with her (in my fic “Glitched”, there’s a chapter when Anti questions everything he’s done wrong and if he’s the problem, if there’s something wrong with him versus us).
  • Samara says she loves her mommy and asks if she can see her (I see this as Anti used to love us and see us as his family and he wants to still be in touch with us no matter what).
  • She goes on about how she wants to hurt people and she’s sorry, adding how it won’t stop (which, in the case of my fic, “Glitched”, even though it’s not clearly stated, Anti never wanted to hurt anyone, he just wanted to be loved, but because he never received it, he ended up resorting to hurting Jack and the egos).
  • Samara says that her daddy is going to leave her there and that he doesn’t love her (basically us refusing to acknowledge how Anti’s our creation - our son - and we don’t love him)
  • She also says that her daddy loves the horses (we, the community, love Jack and the other egos over Anti)
  • She says that her daddy wants her to go away (we want Anti to leave and stay away from us, Jack, and the egos)
  • The last bit, when she says “But he doesn’t know”, only for the doctor to question “He doesn’t know what?” and Samara doesn’t give an answer, only look up at the camera (I see this is Anti taunting us, like he has something horrible up his sleeve and we, the community, have absolutely no IDEA what that is. We have no idea what we’re in store for)

Tell me I’m not the only one seeing a bunch of parallels here. ‘Cause the whole movie already gives me Anti vibes, but this whole scene is not at ALL sitting well with me.

i have so much love to give, but the universe says “wait.” and i’m trying, oh i’m trying, to be patient. i try to ask kindly “how long?” or “where are they?” but i just hear the echoes:
i try not to feel too much like i’m missing out. but there are many moments i am reminded i am alone. like when i go to the movies, and a stranger asks if the seat beside me is taken, just like me expecting there to be someone i love coming to fill it. or when i go to a restaurant, and they ask “just one?” as if it takes two to need to eat. or when a relative asks where a past lover is, and i have to convince us both that they’re gone and that’s okay and i’m alone and that’s okay too (i think).
too much of me begins to believe there’s something wrong with me, that i’m too defective for love (who could love me when i struggle most days to love myself?). but maybe that’s not true. maybe it really is the universe i hear, telling me to wait, to be patient, whispering “it takes time.” because there’s a reason for everything, right? there’s cosmic plans and divine connections that extend far beyond my desire for a requited romantic connection.
so i wait, impatiently patient. i don’t know for how long, and i don’t know where they are. but i’m alone, and for now i think that’s okay. i’ll just be waiting.

If you’re only showing kindness with the expectation of getting something in return then you aren’t showing true kindness. If your kindness, your support stops because you aren’t receiving what you wanted, what you expected, in return then it was never genuine. If you can’t be nice without it being reciprocated then you were never being truly nice in the first place. True kindness is given freely. Kindness should be a gift, not a loan.

Spoilers! My Thoughts on Epic Winter

Beware: Very long post with crap ton of pictures! -wink- 

Guess who has a new OTP???

DIS GURL DOES! I really love this new song better than the last one in my opinion. 

I suppose I’ll give my thoughts on the movie. Over all? It was pretty all right, but I felt it was too predictable. There were very few elements in the movie that was new and refreshing. For example, the two main characters (Raven and Apple) took a nice healthy break from the spot light to give some other characters a try, which is nice (though due to this choice, no Rapple -sniff sniff-).

I was very happy to see Justine and Duchess have a ice dance off! I would love to see more between these two in the future <3! Healthy competition of course.

AND GUESS WHO SQUEALED/CRIED OVER SEEING HER ORIGINAL OTP? PLEASE MATTEL! I want to see these two interact more. Ever since Spring Unsprung I shipped them and was disappointed that they haven’t talked to each other since! 

Not to mention I am sad that Darling and Apple haven’t been shown talking about their destinies either. It obviously showed that Apple and Daring weren’t meant to be; but I am still holding on to Darling most likely being Apple’s Prince Charming while also being the White Knight in Wonderland. (Just make Darling gay Mattel -slips them Mattel money that they obviously need for their stupid/tragic doll budget cuts they’ve been making-) #Butthat’snoneofmybusiness 

“Blondie needs to chill out.”

I think this was the best thing in the movie X’D ahaha! And of course Blondie’s mic drop right before this. Did you see her icon on the bottom right corner? It’s so adorable! I haven’t seen it before until now! :D

It was spelltacular that we saw some parents again!

Jillian with her dad. EVEN LIZZIE AND HER MOM! SO ADORABLE! 

Not gonna lie, I felt bad for Raven, but it was pretty amusing scooting her mother around ahaha!

The library scene really was hexcellent! The detail was superb. I really enjoyed it and hope it will be used again in the future.

Farrah really grew on me in this movie. She is seriously adorable and too amazing for her own good. I was delighted seeing what else she can do. 

Am I the only one tickled pink in seeing cutie Poppy snuggled in Holly’s long hair? XD

Soooooo why didn’t Faybelle get a doll but Maddie and Apple did? =_=;; I would have DIED for a Faybelle doll in this outfit :’( (I would say maybe a special edition doll but I think the special edition doll was Crystal Winter herself. I guess we shall see…)

The antagonists in the movie were all right. I didn’t realize how short they were until Crystal hugged them later on. At least they’re not as short as the pixies.

Also, did anyone else get annoyed with Blondie? I feel harsh saying this, but I kinda wish they left her out and put someone else instead (like maybe cutie patootie Cedar or something). I have a like/dislike relationship with Blondie. She has her good and bad moments. At least her outfit was pretty cute during this movie but I kinda wish they left her out. 

Cute Winter pout and sulk <3

Not gonna lie, I kinda want that gun now ahaha! 

“How did the sleigh even get up there?” Blondie asks the real questions XD 

I was happy to see Briar and Faybelle interact a few times within the movie. You can clearly see Briar is still very uncomfortable of being put to sleep for 100 years of her life. I suppose they wanted to show she still hasn’t quite decided on what she wants to do. 

Okay Faybelle that WASN’T okay to do, even as a joke. Not hat-tastic >: / 

But I do appreciate her ‘oh shit she gunna do it for realz?!’ look XD 

I just really enjoyed these scenes of them glowing and asleep. Just gorgeous animation all around #aesthetic guyz

My most favorite part probably was the new song and everyone dreaming of their happily ever afters. It was very enchanting and beautiful! 

Most likely my new wallpaper <3 

Soooo yeah my new otp. I was very thrilled on seeing this. It really does show that Faybelle has a soft side and definitely wouldn’t curse Briar so she can be free to do as she pleases. She does care and even stopped Briar to not make a choice she knows she wouldn’t be happy on making.

I just love the details to this song. I’m starting to wonder the person who sings this also sings for Monster High. The voice just sounded familiar. 

OKAY BUT SERIOUSLY! These cuties literally killed my heart in this scene. HUNTER LOOKING SO DAPPER AND IS AN ADORABLE CHESTNUT! I mean, look at him! He’s so captivating and just so blessed to have Ashlynn in his life. He never thought he would ever get a princess and just—my heart guys, my heart! 

Blondie’s dream was just very cute. She just wants to have many bear friends to bear with her :’D (I’m terrible I know). 

Just an darling Crystal Winter screenshot. 

I know many Dizzie and Darise fans were very upset over the canon relationship of Rosabella and Daring. I find them very adorable though and consider them a nice and interesting couple. I would love to see more of them in future episodes and movies <3! 

Overall the movie was beautiful and gorgeously animated since I am a big winter person myself. I would probably give it a 7.5/10 since I feel that some parts were a bit lackluster, and like I said earlier, too predictable. But I actually am proud that Mattel still gives me another otp to love <3. And also,

Crying Faybelle gives me life? It just goes to show you have to read the fine print when it comes to shady things like that. Glad she learned her lesson (or at least I hope she did). I grew to love Faybelle a lot during these past 2 movies. But probably since she’s been seen a lot (like Lizzie from Spring Unsprung and Way to Wonderland) we might not be able to see her possibly for a long while. Just saying and noticing a trend guys > o >.

Anyways, let me know what you think! Do you like the new movie? Have you collected any of the dolls? What do you think of the new Rosebella and Daring pairing? Talk to me guyz! I’m alllll ears! ^_^ 

The Lost Fiancé (Part 1)

Request: Could you do a Oswald/Reader/Edward, where Oswald & Edward are trying to make the other give up on you so they can have yoo instead? Thankie~💕

Ed ran a hand over his face exhaustedly. Jim Gordon had just talked to him for the third time about Kristin Kringle’s disappearance. If only he knew who caused his curiosity, his suspiciousness, maybe he would find a way to get him off the case.

Hey PZeeps,

I’m making this announcement to let you know that the second season of Penn Zero: Part-Time Hero will be the final season of the series.

We are finishing up the story we began telling in 2014.  New episodes will air through 2017, leading up to our series finale.  I’m really excited for you all to see our big, bombastic, super funny, visually purty, exponentially musical, big-time exciting and emotionally everything season 2.

(Enjoy these sneak peek images; just a small taste of what’s in store…)

The team at Disney TV Animation and Disney XD continue to be great partners; supportive of the vision Jared and I shared for the show since the beginning.  I’ve enjoyed so much trust and creative freedom throughout this journey.  I was free to build the team we needed to create something truly unique.  Watching it all evolve and grow into an actual TV show that’s 100% for real on TV continues to be a thrill for me.  It’s been a gift to collaborate with the most amazing people ever.

As you know, two seasons of a good show isn’t the most uncommon thing in the TV animation industry.  The truth is the network has always been happy with our show.  Our ratings have been great from the start, and we held solid with all our season 1 premiere episodes…. and we continue to do well with our repeat airings.   The network has always been supportive of our show, and ordered two seasons.   In that time we’ve been able to tell so many great and varied stories.  And so many more on the way…

Would I have liked to make more episodes than fit into two seasons?  Yes.  Am I satisfied with the stories we’ve been able to tell with Penn and the rest of our amazing characters in the two seasons that we got?  Hell yes.  Are there killer moments and crazy cool and fun new characters coming your way in season 2 that will make you smile and laugh and make your jaw drop in a totally excited-as-a-fan way?  Damn straight.  Are there familiar Season 1 characters and worlds that will return in very surprising ways like what?  Yeppy.  Will I ask myself more consecutive questions and then answer them in this paragraph?  Certainly.  Would I have had extra ideas that would never have made it on the air, even if there were 20 seasons?   Probably.  Will I talk about a few missed opportunities that never made it on the show, someday in a bar at San Diego Comic-con?   I’d take that bet.   Did I have to sacrifice a fun episode or two to make room for a few important heavy-hitting, super cool mythology building/continuing story episodes that lead to our giant season 2 finale AKA super duper series finale?  Yes ma’am and/or sir.

For fans, the very good news is…

We found out about the end of the series early enough to devote quite a few episodes directly to the emotionally sensitive business of concluding this big story.  The season 2 story threads its way into many episodes, including our 5-consecutive episode series finale, which kinda feels like a big movie…

My friends at Disney TV Animation and Disney XD have given me the time and episodes I needed to give the story a fitting finale, and they continue to support me in post-production.  I am grateful to them and if you’re a fan, you should be too.  There is a lot of variety on Disney XD and Disney Channel, and I’m glad Penn Zero continues to be part of that collage of shows.

While it has been honestly sad for me to see my PZ crewmembers roll off the show, one by one… the bright side for you guys is most of our amazing team of super smart writers, brilliant artists and production geniuses have migrated to exciting new Disney TVA series.  In many respects, they are building on the creative ground we first broke on Penn, and carrying it forward to new projects.  

At the moment I’m intimately involved with all the season 2 finale stuff.  I will say confidently, that once you watch season 2, and consider both seasons together, you will feel like you have seen quite a lot of the Penn Zero Multiverse.  In two seasons of Penn Zero, I will boldly claim that you will have seen more unique and wonderful worlds, and will have met more unique characters, species, cultures and societies than many other longer running shows give you in 10 full seasons.  And I will overconfidently and perhaps irresponsibly claim that you will never see such variety in any TV series ever again on Earth, or any planet, in any galaxy ever.  Trust me on this.

There’s a story Jared and I wanted to tell from the beginning.  It was about Penn and his friends and what they wanted to accomplish against challenging odds.  And it was about this villain Rippen and his minion Larry and their goals too, and what makes them tick.  It’s about Penn’s poor trapped parents… and it’s all headed somewhere very…interesting.  This story could have been told over a longer time period than two seasons; that was certainly our initial plan.  But I will honestly say that the way the story is being told from season 1 through season 2… and into our series finale is exactly what I wanted it to be.  I love it.  And I hope you do too.

I have so many people to thank.  My partner and co-creator, Jared Bush.  My line producer Tara Badawy, my directors, Adam Henry, Tom DeRosier, Kathleen Good, Chuckles Austen, my Co-Producer/story editor Jeff Poliquin, my Lead Editor Jhoanne Reyes, Co-Art Directors Benjamin Plouffe and Chris Whittier, Character Designers Tim Moen and Joe Moshier, Animation Co-Supervisor Matt Williames, Composer Ryan Shore, Executives Jay Francis, Matthew Siegel, Jonathan Schneider, Dave Wright, Aaron Drown, Michele Mazzano, Khaki Jones, Lisa Salamone, Eric Coleman, Marc Buhaj and Gary Marsh.  I have always felt support and encouragement from all of these people, and so many more I can’t name here because we all need to go to sleep eventually.  Who could ask for a better studio and crew?

And then there’s our spectacular cast – Thomas Middleditch, Tania Gunadi, Alfred Molina, Larry Wilmore and Adam DeVine – who could ask for a better cast?  Recording these guys has been such a privilege.  They’re all immensely talented and are each exceptionally warm and fun people… And also the guest voice actors have been such a thrill (some fun surprises for season 2)… Thanks also to Mary Elizabeth McGlynn, my VO director and my lead recording engineer Mark Kondracki at Outloud Audio, who are both such a big part of all the great voice acting performances we capture.

And most importantly, I want to thank you.  Who could ask for better fans? Seriously, I love you all and I thank you for all your drawings, your posts, your OCs and fan fiction (honestly haven’t read much of that at all – for reasons – but maybe I will soon?)…. I’m excited each time I check in on your art posts, and always enjoy reblogging you guys!

The most exciting part of making this show has been to see it resonate with an audience.  To know you dig what we put into the universe is honestly the biggest gift.  We made this stuff for you.  And you’re inspired and make your own stuff because of what we did.  And that truly inspires me.  Thank you all.

I hope you enjoy Season 2 as much as I’m enjoying making it.  We are completing the story we want to tell.  Lots more laughs, thrills, chills and…. maybe a few tears are on the way for all of us.

Penn Zero: Part-Time Hero will be at San Diego Comic-con next week!  Lots of new stuff to share!

Friday 7/22 2:30-3:30pm room 5AB  (panel)

And we have a signing later that day.  If you’re in San Diego, stop by and say hi!

Thank you and…

Good Luck!

~Sam AKA Phyllis
