For the record, whole movie trope of kissing a girl mid-sentence makes so little sense to me like I love kissing as much as the next guy but if she’s tryna make a point idc if it’s about some deep emotional shit or her feelings on chicken fajitas let her finish the sentence like damn do you really care that little about what she has to say
someone who i thought was one of my best friends has been not talking to me and acting like they hate me because the other day i stood up for myself when they did something mean. in general, they’re not very nice to people and put others down and i hate to admit it, but i’ve let it slide. i hate that. i wish i had said something every damn time they were rude to someone without reason. so yeah, it was an absolutely crappy day.
one of my best friends who i love very very much drove almost 45 minutes to get to my house just to bring me chocolate covered popcorn and watch movies with me to make me feel better. this SIGNIFICANTLY improved my state of mind, but after she left i started to feel bad again and cried a lot (whatever kelsey’s an emotional wreck we all know that tho)
so this whole time i’ve been snapchatting this girl who i’ve known for a couple years, but never really hang out with or talk to outside of choir and theatre. she noticed i was crying and asked if i was ok, then texted me and asked if she could come by my house to bring me something. I was kinda confused but i was like “yeah sure come on over” and gave her my address.
ten minutes later the doorbell rings and i unlock it to see her standing there WITH HER BRAND NEW TINY KITTEN NAMED NOLA.
my day had been so shitty and i felt so worthless that this made me almost start crying. someone gave a shit enough to drive to my house and let me hold their kitten when i was feeling like nobody cared.
this probably seems stupid or like i’m making a big deal out of nothing, but if you take anything from this, please: be kind. be thoughtful. be caring. please.
This very scene is my favorite scene from any movie ever. It’s the most emotional and heartbreaking moment I’ve ever seen in a movie; the amount of emotion these two sad robots are able to show without faces nor saying a word is astonishing. If you want to make me cry, for some reason, all you have to do is show me this damn scene.
isac kinda looks like a younger version of dr. wilson from house
Yes!!! Actually, this pinged for me too?? When Isak was processing what was going on during Even’s episode, I thought specifically he reminded me of Neil from Dead Poets Society (which is that actor when he was younger). There’s definitely a resemblance there, imho? I didn’t put it together until I saw the dark eyes, dark eyebrows, the darkly heavy stare that’s saying so much…
Weirdly enough, I think the way his bangs moved here helped make the connection for me??
Okay so I kinda always knew this but it has just hit me...
During the iconic cuddle scene in episode 5, Isak tells Even that he can make a film out of his story if he likes and i’m just so emotional right now because this means that they have probably spent ages talking about Even’s passion for film making.
Like how god damn adorable is that? can you imagine everything we missed? Is it Even’s dream to become a director, or a producer or a writer? Or, hell he’s also an artist, so is he into animation? What kind of movies does he want to make? What was THE movie that changed his life and made him fall madly in love with film? What exactly is it that he loves about film? Is it an escape from reality? The seduction of a world where everything happens the exact way it was written? No fear of the unexpected, you can guarantee on it unfolding in the way it was always intended to be.
What is his favourite movie? omg what kind of movies has he made so far? What does he feel when he creates something like that? the control and power of creating an entire world that was once just alive in your brain, but now it is real, it is here, for others to see. They are no longer running wild and recklessly in his mind. He has brought stories to life? is this why he loves film? is this his dream?
Like i’m just sure he talked Isak’s ear off and it just kills me that we missed it. I might write a drabble of this sometime tomorrow if you guys are interested. Just an Evak dream talk kind of thing. I also promised a few of you a wedding drabble so…I should get to that.
I’m going to go off on a small tangent here really quick… This also includes a smallish SPOILER ALERT if you haven’t seen Suicide Squad. You all probably didn’t know this about me but I’m a fairly big movie buff and I really enjoy looking into the actors and what they do to make the audience really feel what they are feeling and how they put the audience into their own shoes. Anyways theres a scene in Suicide Squad that really inspires me to follow my dreams and to become an actor. After the Joker gets shot down and to our knowledge “Killed” we see Harley sitting on top of a car in emotional distress as she cries and takes off her Puddin choker collar (I think thats what its called). That short minute or so is what literally made the movie in my eyes. I was launched right into the feels of what was going on in that instance. I felt her loss. I felt her distress. I felt every. Single. Emotion. It was absolutely mind blowing the connection that I felt with her, and that I’ve never felt with any movie I’ve ever seen in my lifetime. AND WHEN FUCKING DEADSHOT (Will Smith) CAME OUT AND SHE IMMEDIATELY FLIPPED HER FUCKING EMOTIONS AND HID EVERYTHING FROM THEM WAS FUCKING AMAZING BECAUSE IVE LITERALLY FELT THAT, IVE LITERALLY HAD TO HIDE MY EMOTIONS LIKE THAT IN AN INSTANCE AND I FELT THAT MORE THAN EVER. The absolutely best part about that emotional flip was when Deadshot saw right through the massive wall that Harley built so quickly. Now I don’t know much about Deadshot’s background but from the movies standpoint I assume thats how he felt about his daughter when he lost her from being put in prison. Its just that little snippet of the movie that really inspires me and just amazes me that someone can make me feel something like that through a screen. If you made it through this I applaud you and thank you for reading! Have an awesome day!!
Request: Reader drunkenly confesses that she likes Pietro; smut ensues.
Warnings/Triggers: Being drunk? Cursing.
Making your way down the hallway to Pietro’s room, popcorn and Star Wars in hand, you smiled cheerfully and munched on a kernel. Tonight was movie night, a bi-weekly night in which you helped Pietro adapt and learn about current culture.
Yes, maybe you wished you could teach him other things about modern ‘culture’, but that kind of stuff wasn’t supposed to happen between friends. You’d seen enough romantic movies to know that having a thing with Pietro wouldn’t end well, but hey, a girl can dream.
Pausing in front of his door to readjust the popcorn bowl in your arms, you cocked your head.
Pressing your ear against the metal, you tuned your ear to listen to the sound of-
Who the hell would be having sex with Pietro at 7 p.m. on a Friday night?
There were 4 females in the building: Maria, Natasha, Wanda, and you. Maria was definitely not interested, Natasha had lately been flirting with Bruce, you doubted there was incest in the Maximoff family, and you were standing on the other side of the door, listening to your best friend go at it with a stranger.
Feeling your throat begin to close up, you swallowed and quietly walked back down the hallway into the kitchen to set the food down on a counter. Clint or Thor would probably eat it.
He doesn’t like you, but that’s not why you feel like shit, you coached yourself, You only feel bad because movie night’s been cancelled. That’s it.
Jogging into your room, you tossed the movie onto your bed and grabbed your phone, shoving it into your back pocket. If Pietro didn’t want to have fun with you, you’d have fun by yourself. With lots of beer, preferably.
Taking a deep breath, you stepped out of your room, locked the door with a scan of your eyes, and marched towards the elevator, almost tasting alcohol on your tongue.
You blinked groggily, world spinning to a stop as you made your way through the open glass doors of Stark Tower. The elevator was now right in front of you, but no matter how many times you pressed the button, the doors wouldn’t seem to open.
“Dammit,” you growled, leaning your head against the cold metal for a moment as you steadied yourself. Taking a step back, you looked again at the button pad and realized you’d missed the button entirely and had been pressing on a random portion of the wall.
The elevator ride was short and sweet, and your favorite part was seeing the buttons for each floor switch positions and move in spirals, like water being flushed down a toilet.
Ah, being drunk was lovely.
When the doors opened, you fell out the opening between them and braced yourself against the wall in front of you, forehead on the cool surface.
“Y/N?” asked an accented voice. Thor? No, this one was too thick. Wanda? Too masculine. That left…ah, Pietro!
Wait, but I’m mad at him.
I don’t know.
Well, you better figure that out one, buddy!
You moved your lips to form the words of your thoughts, holding up both of your hands in sock-puppet formation to act out the two different voices in your head.
“Eh?” you slurred, turning your head, then your body, to face him. Pietro was half-smiling, half-concerned as you began to tip sideways. Reaching out his arms to hold you by your elbow and hand, he began to walk you slowly down the hall.
“You are drunk?”
“Wasted as shit!” Feeling a fit of giggles come over you, you threw your head back and laughed. “Oh, oh man,” you wheezed, wiping tears of mirth from your cheeks.
“Language!” yelled Steve, who was probably reading in the lounge at the other end of the hall. Pietro blinked, corner of his lip twitching upwards, as the two of you paused in front of a sealed metal door.
“Can you open your door for me?” he asked, trying locked handle.
“Uh, no?” What a dumb question; how were you going to open this random door?
“What?” He looked over at you, eyebrow raised. “You have a way to get in your room, do you not?”
“I dunno, man.” Muttering something in Sokovian, he gently tugged your farther down the hall and into a different room.
“Man, is this your place?” you asked, looking around. Realization struck. “Holy crap, I was here earlier today!” He looked over at you, brows furrowed.
“You were inside of my room today?” You laughed; this was somehow funny.
“Oh, yeah, no, I was outside. Heard you doing the frick-frack, so I left,” you added, flopping onto his bed. “Hey, this is comfy!”
Pietro ran a hand through his hair, pacing from one end of the room to the other.
“I was not in my room at all. Who…”
“Do you even know the periodic table, man? Like, ‘cause you shouted ‘Germanium’ when you nutted.” His face morphed into a mixture between a frown and disgust as he made the connection between ‘Germanium’ and the promiscuous man in question.
“The man of iron. In my bed.” Looking at you, sprawled out across his covers, was much more appealing than that of Stark-
Stop it, Pietro. Wanda would know immediately if he continued to think about Y/N arching her back and screaming-
La naiba. [Damn it.]
Shrugging his shirt over his head, he attempted to ignore your blatant staring and pulled on a clean t-shirt before zipping over to his side of the bed.
She would not act this way if she were sober. Get ahold of yourself.
In an attempt to keep himself calm, he lay as far away as possible from you without falling off the side of the mattress, staring at the dark ceiling.
Feeling his side begin to warm up, he turned to glance at you, curled up against him and looking up into his eyes as your hand slipped under the hem of his shirt.
Resisting the urge to move your hand lower down, Pietro gently took hold of your wrist and began to move it back to its place on your side of the bed when he felt you roll on top of his chest and press your lips against his.
You tasted like cinnamon rolls and alcohol, sweet and bitter, as you kissed him softly, tenderly, hands on his bicep and his chest. Feeling his fingers press against your skin, you pushed harder, rolling your hips and smiling as he groaned into your mouth.
“No.” Nudging you up off his chest, he ignored the way you straddled him and instead focused on your eyes, which furrowed inwards. “Y/N, I cannot. You are drunk, and I could not.”
“Oh, but you could with that other girl in your room this morning,” you muttered, feeling his hard stomach as you pushed yourself off of his body. “Sorry, Y/N, for ditching you on movie night. Sorry, Y/N, for ignoring you.”
Pietro propped himself up on his elbows as you staggered towards the door, tugging frustratedly on the handle.
“What are you saying?”
“You don’t even care about me!” Good God, how easy it was to change emotions. Happy, then angry, and now you felt tears on your cheeks. “I tried so hard to not, I don’t even know, make a move on you, and look where I am. You pushed on the handle again. “God-God damn it! What the hell is wrong with this thing?”
“You have feelings for me?” Pietro closed his mouth, shaking his head to clear his thoughts. “Y/N that was not me in my room today. I was training with the Captain until 7 o’clock tonight. I told you this, just ten minutes ago.”
“Yeah. Oh, yeah, you did!” You turned around, face lighting up in a smile. “Sick.”
“You have feelings for me?” he asked again, trying to stay still as you clambered back under his covers.
“Well, yeah, but I mean, I wasn’t gonna say anything, you know? Have you seen Friends with Benefits?” He raised an eyebrow.
“No. Maybe at our next movie night?”
“This is movie night, Pete.”
The room was silent for a minute before you spoke up again, words slightly slurred together.
“Should I just move on?”
Pietro shifted, rolling his shoulder into a more comfortable position. It would be incredibly easy to say, “Yes.”
Then again, this was his chance at actually having a shot at you. He’d be lying if he said he didn’t feel angry when you were hugging the Captain, or that he didn’t love seeing you smile.
Perhaps it was time to take a risk. Worst case scenario, Wanda could fiddle with both of your memories and return the two of you to the state of being best friends.
“I hope you do not,” he smiled, pulling you towards him.
Feeling more sober, you quietly wrapped your arm around his torso, nestling your head into his chest and sighing contentedly.
“This is better than movie night,” you murmured, feeling your eyelids grow heavy. “Night.”
You woke up warm and with a slight ringing in your ears. Keeping your eyes closed, you turned onto your side and inhaled deeply, mentally preparing yourself to wake up. It smelled like…sugar and musk. Candy-sugar, and rich aftershave.
You opened your eyes to his blue ones as he tucked a strand of hair out of your face and behind your ear. This wasn’t your room.
Listen, I just binge-watched Peaky Blinders this weekend and I’ve now seen every episode, and Cillian Murphy is truly fantastic. Like, he’s outstanding in that series. I’ve seen him in other movies, but this tops it all for me. Tom Hardy does a tremendous job as well. Sick character. And now, all I’m thinking about is how cool and surreal it is that we’re gonna see them together with Harry in Dunkirk. When I google Cillian Murphy now, this shows up on the first page:
Yes, this is a thing
AND I’M STILL HERE LIKE
idk how to adequately express how excited I am about this. It still hasn’t sunk in! The fact that we know Harry fought hard and won that role against well known actors. The fact that Nolan saw something rare and worth-while in him and believes in him so damn much, makes me emotional af. The fact that Harry is now working with Cillian Murphy and Tom Hardy and Mark Rylance! (to mention some of the names.) “No, he doesn’t need tips.” says Rylance and later compares Harry to Sean Penn. The fact that he is taking directions from Christopher Nolan, a director who is among the most successful, acclaimed and highest-grossing filmmakers we haaaave, IN HIS FIRST FUCKING MOVIE, OUR HARRY!! HE’S DOING THIS and I’m so proud I don’t even know what to do with myself, idk if I’ll ever get over it, but I want you to know that this is me every fooking day:
You said something a while ago that I can't stop thinking about. You made a post about how ET and adc’s chemistry is unmatched. The more I watch Ftwd the more I realize how right you were. While ADC is brillant, he scenes with other ppl don't hit me emotionally like hers did with ET. Why do you think that is?
Alycia Debnam-Carey is a very, very talented actor. I have a certainly wondered myself the why behind her intense chemistry as a performer with Eliza Taylor. At first I thought it was because they were such good friends. But that can’t be it because their chemistry was FIRE as soon as they shared the same space, and they obviously didn’t know one another then. Also, I thought it can’t be the friend thing because she’s good friends with Frank, Colman, and Mercedes and while her scenes with Colman and Mercedes are good, her scenes with Frank fall flat for me. So it’s not that. She and Frank hang and watch movies together and she met him before she met any other cast member so they’re tight. Maybe even tighter the she and Eliza, but their scenes…. the emotional connection is not there for me. Even when I can tell the directors and writers are trying so damn hard to make it so. And don’t get me started on her scenes with Kim. I would call two of them down right bad which is not something I thought I would ever say about someone as talented as ADC, but they were pretty tragic and not in the emotional way the writers meant them to be. I doubt she and Kim hang out on the weekends but it’s also clear that being friends with someone isn’t want makes or breaks their chemistry as actors.
Neither Eliza nor Alycia has had shared chemistry with a scene partner better than each other in my opinion. I think their scenes together are some of the most emotionally startlingly scenes I have ever watched between two actors. They spent 7 and a half episodes together before they kissed. So I’m not even talking about romantically. I’m talking about any twotwo actors sharing a screen at any given time.
I have no idea. What I do know is that it would be a travesty for them to never work together again.
Dean stared down at the King of Hell and rolled his eyes. He planted his hand on Crowley’s shoulder. “Just do it.” The hunter said boredly. “I’m sure Y/N’ll say yes; she’s always been a lunatic.”
Crowley glared up at Dean and rubbed his hands together, hoping that it would lessen the anxiety he was feeling. You were just in the other room, oblivious to the emotional turmoil Crowley was going through. Dean sighed and leaned against the wall, waiting for Crowley to make up his damn mind. He was allowing the demon to ask you out; Crowley has never done anything to hurt you in particular, and having a girlfriend might slow the King of Hell down a little.
“Are you going or what?”
“Give me a bloody minute!” Crowley snapped, but immediately lowered his voice down to it’s normal volume. “I’ve never done this before.”
Dean smirked and looked over to you intently watching a movie. “Don’t try so hard with Y/N; she’s really laid back. Just act natural and you’ll do fine.”
Crowley nodded at the hunter’s advice and took a breath to steel himself. Then, he walked into the room before he could stopped himself.
Aries- my ex-girlfriend. I swear she’s mentally insane, but regardless I loved her anyway. She always stands her ground; she’s never afraid to fight someone. She’s so down for anything, and that’s what I’ve always loved about her. Although, that willingness to do anything has gotten her in trouble with the law multiple times. She has the type of fiery personality I’ve always wished I had.
Taurus- the guy I lost my virginity to. He’s probably one of the most chill people I know. Although, when he gets angry he could kick your ass in the blink of an eye. He loves sex more than the drugs he does. He’ll never turn down the chance to fuck someone, and if he wants to sleep with you, you’ll definitely know. He’s probably actually one of the biggest fuckboys I’ve ever known😂 I’ll never know what he’s been through in his life; he’s just that private. I know very little about his past, but from what I can tell it’s very troubled, so I don’t blame him for being the way he is. He’s real easy to fall for, and that’s why everyone does. He’s the best regret I’ll ever have.
Gemini- my mom. She’s honestly my best friend. I can tell her anything and she’s always ready to listen and talk to me about whatever it is. She’s always down to hear all about the teenage drama I have. So so so laid back. Sometimes she’s more of a friend than a parent, but she does her best. Honestly one of the most hilarious people I know😂 she always has some funny/crazy story to tell. Plus, she’s had a hippie soul since the day she was born, so that’s cool too. There are times where she just needs to be alone, though. During those times, she can get very mean and scary. Regardless, I love her always. She makes me feel understood.
Cancer- the first guy I ever truly fell for. The love I had for him was endless. We never dated, though. He was only ever my best friend. Regardless, I loved him more than anything. I would’ve done anything for him to make him happy. Within time, I had to let him go in order to make him happy. It hurt more than anything in this world. Honestly, to this day I’d be lying if I said I didn’t still miss him. He has such a messed up past, but the only way you’ll know that is if you get close to him. It takes a lot for him to open his heart towards someone since he’s been hurt so many times before. I’ll never know exactly how he felt about me, but I’ll always know how amazing he was. There were times where he thought he was such a terrible person, but I never did. He’ll always have a spot in my heart.
Leo- my best friend. She’s such an idiot, but that’s just what everyone loves about her. It doesn’t take a lot for her to say the L word, but when she actually falls in love, she really falls. She’s actually really wise. She’s always there to give a piece of advice when needed. Shes the type of girl every girl wishes they could be and every guy wishes they could get. She’s such a fiery little ball of sunshine and I’ve always loved that about her. Although, it’s really annoying when guys wanna choose her over me. I could never blame them, though. She’s truly more amazing than I’ll ever be.
Virgo- me lol. Other than me, a friend of mine. She’s one of the most depressed people I know. She thinks things are so bad in life, and I just wish I could show her things don’t have to stay the way they are. She could change, and I know it cuz I’ve done it. I know it isn’t easy, but I know she could do it. I also know that’s what she’s been trying to do, though. She wants to give up on life so badly, yet she’s still here. She’s one of the strongest people I know.
Libra- my dad. Sometimes he can be boring😅 but I’m still his little girl. I love him, but I often forget to tell him. He doesn’t really have friends cuz he’s so to himself. He also looks mean, but he really isn’t. He’s always been a dreamer, and that’s what causes him to seem standoffish. Sometimes I swear this man doesn’t feel feelings. He either has his resting bitch face on or he’s smiling (lol he’s who I get it from.) He’s definitely the stricter parent, but he can be fun sometimes. Really into historical stuff for some reason. Ignorant about like everything- especially his damn ignorance. He’s the only man Imma ever need.
Scorpio- my ex-boyfriend. He was an amazing guy, but he did have his flaws. He was manipulative, but I can’t tell if he completely knew what he was saying was manipulative or not?? He got attached to me really fast. After only like a week of being together he was dropping hints about the future he wanted to have with me. He told me he loved me after we were together only like an hour. He definitely would’ve walked through fire if it meant I’d smile, though. Sadly, we ended on pretty bad terms. He goes through a lot of hard things in his life, and that’s what makes him so tough. He’ll square up over anything I swear😂 he’s gonna make some girl very happy one day.
Sagittarius- my best guy friend. He’s really crazy, but yet really chill at the same time?? He contradicts himself a lot😂 one time he was talking about how he doesn’t feel things, and then like 5 minutes later starting talking about his feelings😂 he likes to stuff his feelings with drugs. For some reason he talks about how badly he wants a girlfriend, but never seems to wanna date the girls who actually like him?? He makes my mind go ’????’ We talked one time about how we like each other, but it’s hard to see each other. We agreed to wait until he can drive to try and date. He makes me excited for the future.
Capricorn- my best friend. She’s insane😂 really really funny. I swear she’s gonna be the reason I’ll have abs one day😂 she randomly does these really weird accents and it’s just great. She has a major dark side that she hides though. She hits her low sometimes and sometimes she’ll even refuse to admit it. Eventually, she tells me everything though. She doesn’t open up easily, so if she were to open up to you, you can’t take it lightly. She has such an ‘I don’t care’ attitude but on the inside she’s constantly screaming about something. Whenever I’m sad I can always count on her to help me cheer up. She helps me pull out the sun in my darkest hours.
Aquarius- my ex-boyfriend. We were literally Peter and Lois Griffin😂 he wasn’t nearly as in touch with his emotions as I am. He likes to ignore them and act like they aren’t real. Every once in a while he opens up though. He’d always rather crack a joke than admit how he feels though. Reeeaaaalllllyyyyy funny. Likes to make up random back stories. You hear lots of movie and tv show references while talking to him. Really really sarcastic. He makes me miss the way things used to be.
Pisces- my best guy friend. He thinks he’s such a terrible person, but I know damn well he isn’t. I’ve seen it. He cares so so so much about everything and will always listen to your problems no matter how little and dumb. He does a lot of drugs to run from his problems. Because of these drugs, he tends to get reckless. His best advice is always “smoke some weed you’ll be fine.” But damn if he don’t help me get through my darkest hours though. He’s one of the only people that made me reconsider when I thought I was hopeless. No one can get through to me like he can. He’s the reason I’m still alive today.
I generally read more book-based fic (and find those versions tend to be more emotionally satisfying for me), but there’s been some really excellent (and emotionally satisfying, which is what I’m here for) movie-based fic lately! While I would encourage movie-only watchers to dip into book-based fic anyway (because I don’t find it to be a hard crossing over), sometimes it’s nice to get a feel for things with the versions you know first. So! Movie-based fic! With my usual “GIVE ME ALL THE FATHER & CHILD FEELINGS” driving need.

this movie makes me so damn emotional it’s ridiculous
lilo is that lonely strange kid everyone constantly side eyes and i relate to that so hard
and then stitch is so sad and lost because all he really wants and needs is a family but he wasn’t madeto have a family and then he makes one all the same. the scene in the woods when he’s crying “i’m lost!” because that was what worked for the ugly duckling and lilo saying “i hear you cry at night” oh god oh god oh no why would you do this to me, disney.
all of the little mannerisms they give stitch – the way he squeezes his eyes, the way he flexes his little claws and holds his own hands, his expressive eyebrows. how he clings to the pillow when lilo tells him what happened to her parents.
“ohana means family. and family means no one gets left behind. or forgotten. but you can leave if you want to. …i’ll remember you, though. i remember everyone who leaves.”
when the grand councilwoman tells stitch he can say goodbye and he just walks over on his stubby little legs and bows his head and snuggles next to lilo
“this is my family. i found it all on my own. is little. and broken. but still good. yeah, still good.”
this entire movie is nonstop Feel City™ for me, i s2g. chris sanders is simultaneously a wonderful and horrible man between this and how to train your dragon; he gave us both stitch AND toothless and i’m both very grateful and very angry because they both make me cry way more than a hateful misanthrope ever should. ugggggggh.
