this scene always makes me emotional

Nathaniel looked out the window again and wondered if that was possible. He knew in a sense he could never really leave Nathaniel behind. Even if Stuart could talk the Moriyamas down, they’d all know Nathan’s child was alive and kicking. Nathaniel would always be a security risk to them. But the thought was thrilling and chilling in turns, and Nathaniel turned his hand over to consider his palm. He traced Andrew’s key into his skin with a bandaged finger.
“Neil Abram Josten,” Neil murmured, and it felt like waking up from a bad dream.

Rebuilt: Arrow 5x22 Review (Missing)

“Missing” was amazing! Emotional and action packed with zinging dialogue.

What struck me most was how full circle it was. “Missing” sets up the heroes versus villains battle that will come to fruition in the finale, but it also kicks off the basic question Oliver must ask: What makes a hero? What makes a villain? Those concepts are not always rigid. In fact, the very essence of hero and villain is fluid.

Oh… and did I mention there’s an Olicity reunion scene?

Let’s dig in…

My Favorite Stydia Scenes

Because @argyledpenguin asked and also they were making me emotional. This isn’t remotely all of them, just the ones that make me the most emotional. Enjoy!

Bonus: Lydia remembering that she loves Stiles/the kiss

Part one Part two Part three

and for a more comprehensive experience, here is a link to Lydia’s romantic journey.

what i’m loving the most about this scene is that, despite the non-existent history between these two, emori and clarke create this very big contrast between each other: the one who wasn’t loved (emori) vs. the one who was loved (clarke), and the one who thinks they have no choice “you think i have a choice?” (emori) vs. the one who has realized that they always have a choice (clarke).

i love that clarke gets this very close view into emori’s life, because i always found it to be necessary for her to talk to someone on this level - more as an individual who gets to have a heart-to-heart, rather than a leader. it’s not just emori truthfully opening up in this scene about her experiences, insecurities and rage and other types of emotions, but also clarke, who is pushed into a rather sincere communication (if you look at things from her pov) which she initiates.

the things she shares with the audience and emori are so terrifyingly honest - e.g from the things she’s done as a leader and the fact that she can never understand what it feels like to be emori, to be truly alone; the conclusion she shares “but i do know what it feels like”, which harkens back to her first scene with abby where her mother tells her that “no. we have to make a choice” when clarke thinks they have no other choice than to just go along with whatever they need to do; the courage to embrace that truth about herself in these tiny steps; how the narrative highlights how she feels; and how her emotions in regards to her actions don’t even line up with the image of “the commander of death” that emori now places upon herself, because that title has always been less a descriptor of something clarke inherently is and more as something she’s perceived as due to what she has done. the writers make such good use of the “wanheda” image in this scene by poking holes into it, its pretty great imo.

and don’t even get me started on emori, i’m so down for that girl; she’s so different from any other character we’ve seen on this show so far - especially when you think of the things she was forced to do in order to survive, and how her view drastically sets itself apart from all the others in connection to those actions. anyone want a front-row seat for the time i express my weirdly endearing love for her? it’s for free, i promise. it makes all the more sense why she is so desperate on making this work out the way she planned it (not that i didn’t consider it before to be honest, but emori’s emotional expression put more truth into everything imo), and the twist is mind-freezing because it’s emori who propels the story into a whole new dimension for me, and you’ve got to have some serious talents in order to do that with a viewer like me, just saying, lol.

anyway. essentially this moment is functioning as such a great worst-case scenario for two characters who put themselves out there. it’s really fascinating.

i mean, i don’t even know what the point of this post is anymore, i’m kinda drifting. but i really love that clarke just gets to be clarke in this scene by creating a contrast to emori, who just gets to be really hardcore emori in this moment. their interaction creates such a great conflict in which you understand both.

I’m so sorry…

It always made me wonder what kind of life Lucretia must have led when I was watching the cut scenes from DoC. It makes me sad that at some point in her life, she must have thrown away what it was to be a woman because logic leaves no room for emotions in the world of science. Perhaps it was for that reason she was so bright when she was with Vincent-

-Vincent, who always and till the very end, saw her only as the woman who smiled like the moon.

Look at their chemistry. Paul and Nina had the BEST chemistry out of all the canonical couples on this show. Their relationship was not about sex. Hell, their relationship wasn’t just about romance. Stelena were so much more. Stelena was about growth. Enlightenment, Soul searching. Selflessness. Stelena was the definition of AGAPE LOVE. Stelena’s love for each other was the epitome of selfless love. Their scene in the series finale was so genuine and heartfelt. To me, this scene displayed that Stelena are soulmates and that they will always have that genuine and emotional bond that Delena lacked. Thank you, Paul and Nina for making Stelena such a beautiful and epic love story thanks to your wonderful chemistry, You brought light into a part of my life that was so dark at the time. You brought me joy and happiness when I was battered, broken, and crying. You brought me comfort when I was hurt and bruised. Stelena is the one true definition of true, epic love. I will never forget the love story that you shared with me and the rest of the world. </3

lostuntothisworld  asked:

a while back you recommended the movie Autopsy of Jane Doe and it was fantastic! Do you have any more horror movie recs that are psychological like that (with minimal jump scares preferably?)

omg yesssssssss, i sure as heck do. i looooooove recommending horror movies. kay, here we go, pychological, disturbing, and minimal jump scares: 

1. Get Out (2017) - this is a newer movie, and I’m sure you’ve heard about it (and maybe even seen it already). I finally got to see it in theaters and it was marvelous. Very tense horror, minimal jump scares. Definitely recommend it if you haven’t seen it yet. 

2. The Thing (1982) - this is probably my favorite horror movie, and one I will always, always recommend to people. It’s more sci-fi/horror, but horror none the less. This is a movie that feeds on uncertainty and tension, fueled by distrust and paranoia between the characters. (There was also a prequel to this movie made in 2011, and I certainly enjoyed that one as well, but it still couldn’t quite deliver the same chills and fear the 1982 version did.) 

3. They Look Like People (2015) - this is another one that I just watched recently. Probably one of the best that fits the category of psychological horror. It’s a bit slow to start, but develops into a story that will leave you tense, unsure, and unsettled. Plus, it’s probably the only horror movie I have ever seen that manages to highlight mental illness without demonizing it. 

4. As Above So Below (2014) - this is a movie that honestly, I was very skeptical about seeing. It’s a found footage movie (which I typically hate), and it got very poor reviews, but I wound up watching it on a whim one day and found myself enjoying it a lot more than I expected. It honestly is more of a adventure/horror film rather than a strict horror film - and the reviews might have been better, I think, if its marketing hadn’t painted it as a strict horror film. There are a few jump scares in there, but not a whole lot. Much the movie relies on claustrophobia, confusion, and mystery. It’s really an interesting look at a journey into hell. I greatly enjoy it, though your mileage may vary. 

5. Event Horizon (1997) - another sci-fi/horror film. A nightmarish movie about salvage/rescue crew that goes out to salvage a ship that vanished on its maiden voyage and reappeared 7 years later missing its entire crew. This movie deals well in suspense, fear, and our ultimate terror of what evils could lie beyond the unknown. 

6. The Descent (2005) - yet another movie I recommend to everyone. Set underground in an unknown cave system, and led by an all female cast, this movie is just full of anxiety, paranoia, claustrophobia, and unease. It’ll certainly make you never want to go caving. 

7. The Strangers (2008) - a great take on the classic home invasion/slasher film. It boasts a really creepy atmosphere, an isolated setting, and has moments of genuine, realistic anxiety and terror (even the small things, like trying to find somewhere to hide and realizing you can’t fit, etc…) I saw this movie with my best friend back when it first came out, and it’s still one of my favorites.

8. The Others (2001) - this is not your typical ghost story. Honestly this one is hard to describe because I don’t want to give too much away about the plot. In the last few days of World War II, a woman and her two children wait in isolation, after the mysterious disappearance of their servants, for her husband/their father to return from the war. It’s only in the isolation of the house that they begin to realize the house might not be as empty as they thought it was. Very, very unique take on a ghost story. The case is wonderful, and the pacing and setting of this movie creates wonderfully creepy, unsettling fear. 

9. The Witch (2016) - slow-burn horror and very setting specific, this one’s focus is on religious fear and the sexual stigmatization of girls and women. It’s slow-paced, but really great at building up a sense of unease and dread, and even the small things in it, like small rabbits in the wild, can make you feel unsettled. 

10. Black Swan (2010) - not strictly a horror movie, this one is heavily psychological, and I almost want to cast it as a thriller more than anything, but some of it truly does fall into the realm of psychological horror. Paranoia, obsession, and tension, this movie is chock-full of it. 

11. Funny Games (2007) - this one is actually a remake of a 1997 movie of the same name. I feel kind of bad, but I actually haven’t seen the original, but from what I hear, the two movies don’t differ much. This one is particularly unsettling because of its constant underlying feeling of authenticity. Much like The Strangers, this feels real, like it could happen to anyone, like its psychopaths could be anybody, any well-to-do strangers. It’s a long, sometimes unbearably frustrating game of physical and psychological torture; and the few moments of well-timed 4th wall breaking really up the frustration and distress. 

12. 1408 (2007) - based on a Stephen King story, this film heavily relies on psychological and anxiety-building elements to create its tension. Every thing that happens in this room makes you question what it will do next, what trick will it pull, what hopes will it dash. There’s not much else to say about this one exept that… “It’s an evil fucking room.” 

13. El Orfanato/The Orphanage (2007) - man this one is definitely a favorite of mine. Very unnerving and deeply emotional at the same time, this one is a very well-crafted and clever take on the haunted house/orphanage trope. It’s spooky, chilling, has some moments that will genuinely crawl under your skin (the 1-2-3 toca la pared scene always does it for me…), and features a wildly emotional ending. 

14. The Babadook (2014) - this one doesn’t rely on cheap scares at all, but still features some truly creepy and unnerving moments that left me on edge. But in addition to that, this movie is about so much more than a boogeyman lurking in the shadows. Heavily psychological, this movie delves deeply into how we process loss and deal with all-consuming grief. 

15. 28 Days Later (2002) - I probably don’t need to say much about this one. It’s a movie that most people have either seen or have at least heard of. But there’s a reason it’s consistently named one of the best zombie movies around. It deals with not only the horror of the zombies (and they certainly make that aspect scary on its own), but also the darkest aspects of the fall of society. We’re given a frighteningly grim look at the degradation of humanity and the darkest aspects of human nature as society falls apart. 

15 seems like enough! And hopefully you’ll like some of those!! :D 

(also, for those reading this, please watch Autopsy of Jane Doe (2016) cause it’s amazing)

That’s one for Dazatsu!

I just saw someone make a bungou stray dogs personality type match. I’m a big fan of personality types, a proud infp myself. Dazai turns out to be an intj(no real surprise) and Atsushi is an infp(yay!)

For those who aren’t really aware of personality types let me give you a quick breakdown before I start ranting (if you do know this stuff you can skip).

Dazai is an INTJ which is Introverted Intuitive Thinking Judging. The first thing that can be used to describe an INTJ is “It’s lonely at the top, and being one of the rarest and most strategically capable personality types” (talk about taking Oda’s words right out of his mouth). Seriously though like INTJ’s are like wicked smart and are one of the rarest personality types out there. They radiate self-confidence and an aura of mystery, and their insightful observations, original ideas and formidable logic enable them to push change through with sheer willpower and force of personality. They can be arrogant (Chuuya: Arrogant doesn’t even begin to describe it!), loathe places with many rules and regulations (reason why he didn’t want to work with the government) and let’s just say that they aren’t too big with emotions. Not that they don’t have them, they define themselves with logic so feeling is kind of their downfall.

Atsushi now, my sweet cinnamon roll is an INFP, Introverted Intuitive Feeling Perceptive. INFPs are known as the true idealist and will try to find the tiniest hint of good in even the worst of people. “INFPs are led by the purity of their intent, not rewards and punishments. People who share the INFP personality type are proud of this quality, and rightly so, but not everyone understands the drive behind these feelings”  They are open-minded and do not like being constricted by rules, very passionate (but their shyness tends to keep them from speaking up too often), hardworking and likes to give the benefit of the doubt. Although they can be too idealistic, take things personally and too Altruistic as they try to push themselves to commit to a chosen cause or person, forgetting to take care of the needs of others in their lives, and especially themselves. 

Whew now that I’m done explaining that, what does all this have to with DazAtsu. FuFuFu. It has everything to do with it. The INFP and INTJ don’t seem that compatible seeing that one replies more on thinking and one on feeling but in real life it’s a really popular pair and not just romantically but platonically. INFPs and INTJs are naturally drawn to each other and form some of the greatest friendships and marriages. “INTJ-INFP relationships are common because these types complement each other so well. Both INTJs and INFPs enjoy abstract discussions, including potential ways of improving the world. INFPs are great listeners and enjoy taking in new ideas and information.”  It’s like this just verify everything we said from the beginning Dazai and Atsushi complete each other. Atsushi really listens to Dazai not because he has to but because he wants to and is really curious about what Dazai has to say. Dazai also has a lot of faith in Atsushi and is also interested in Atsushi in his own way. 

Like look at this scene it always gets me because of Dazai’s straight face but the way he pets Atsushi its like his emotions are  seeping through and then that tiny smile from the weretiger. Watching these two interact is like the highlight of my day sometimes. They just seem so perfect for each other sometimes and knowing that they are actually people like them in real life that live a happy life together just makes my go ahhhhh! They were made for each other.


PS. If you don’t know your personality type I recommend you take the test on 16personalities. It’s really fun!

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child Show Recap – 04/03/17

I’ve seen the show a few times now, so at this point I’m fairly picky about what I want to see. I have favourite versions of scenes and lines. I have favourite actors and actresses in the various roles. While every performance is always amazing, I have two main criteria for what constitutes a Good Show, as in, an above average performance of the play. 1. I want it to make me feel something. I want someone to make me cry, or flail, or laugh uproariously, or have to bury my face in my scarf to contain all my emotions. 2. I want to gain new insight into the characters, or the story, or the show itself. During this particular performance, both criteria were absolutely and completely met. 

Keep reading

My heart hurts, but i’m happy for these incredible actors and the crew, they made magic, as Bonnie did. They created a whole new world and we joined them through the years to make this beautiful family. Tvd will always be with me, and i’ll watch it again, and if i had kids, i’d tell them this show saved me so many times. I don’t know if it will be another show like this one.
About the finale, i think it was perfect, there were too many emotional scenes, i’m still crying. Now it’s time to say goodbye 💘

Iron Fist

Short Summary: It was pretty subpar and not as good as it could have been.

Long Summary: So this is interesting. First I am going to address the meta…because I have to.

The Meta

I like Danny Rand. I like Danny Rand as a character. I like Danny Rand as a hero.It goes without saying, Iron Fist came around in the wrong time period and that hurt the perception of Iron Fist.  One of the prevailing themes of Iron Fist aka Danny Rand is that he struggles with two different worlds: corporate New York and Shaolin Monastery. And for the character to work and that these themes to come across effectively, he has to be white. Now watching a white guy be hailed as the greatest kung fu master is like reading the top five rapper list with Eminem, Iggy Azalea and Macklemore ahead Biggie, Tupac, and Nas. It is fucking infuriating to see this character’s uniqueness relies on Eastern Mysticism and Martial Arts. What also hurt Danny Rand is that he is a rich white billionaire, a flavor that is long played out with the likes of Oliver Queen, Bruce Wayne, Tony Stark, and the guy who is the ATOM. It also hurts that rich white billionaire men are like…not really in style as being touted as a good guy.

But as a fan of Iron Fist and many Street level heroes, Danny Rand is like my own personal guilty pleasure because it reads like an Urban Fantasy Kung Fu story. Iron Fist was essentially born out the era where kung fu movies and blaxploitation films were huge, an era I like to call the diamond age because “gold” does not quite describe it. Kung fu was so huge that there were movies about Kung Fu sex. Could you picture that? IT’S INSPIRING!

However, I know it frustrating to witness this blonde haired blue eyed white guy spout Eastern philosophical sayings while being patronizing about his kung fu, as I imagine an Asian person would be.It also hurts that the narrative of Iron Fist makes him more right because…after all, he was raised in a monastery since he was a child. Although the series does it best to ensure that he is not Mighty Whitey(Danny Rand is constantly criticized as being the worst Iron Fist, his peer Davos says that “(Danny) stole the Iron Fist”, and generally his Eastern Asian philosophy puts people off), I am still in not in the “make Iron Fist Asian camp” because it does away other Asian characters who are still around and not being used…like Shang Chi. You know…the guy who also does Kung Fu, better than Danny, and is pretty much Marvel’s Bruce Lee. What I find odd about the Asian Representation Camp of Marvel is that I rarely see them bring up Shang-Chi when they reference Danny Rand in spite of Shang Chi being older than Danny Rand and, prior to the recent refocusing of Luke Cage, just as popular.

Danny Rand is white. It is part of his character. Making him Asian kind of ruins the point, and that kind of sucks. Sure, Iron Fist is a title, but for the time being, Danny Rand is the Iron Fist until he passes it to Pei. Does Iron Fist being white effect the quality of this series? Abso-fucking-lutely. It is fucking cringeworthy to see Finn Jones talk like an english dubbed kung fu action flick, but…it is not bad acting on his part because that is what Danny Rand talks like.

Also, they seem to be aware of this which is why Colleen Wing was the saving grace of this show. More on her later.

Okay I addressed the meta.

The plot structure and pacing

This show takes forever to get to the plot. The first four episodes of this series is very slow development as if it tries to expand what should have taken 2 episodes, tops, to do in four. I swear it is like they had Brian Michael Bendis write this. The first arc for this series is: is Danny Rand the real Danny Rand? which would be okay if we did not already know that he was indeed Danny Rand and the characters involved did not just drag it out. It took five episodes to finally reveal who exactly is the nemesis and what is going on. This was a choir to watch outside of Colleen Wing, who is by far a more interesting character than Danny Rand. After this slow start, the series picked up.

What hurt this series the most was this very slow introduction. It is any wonder where critics panned the series because things that weren’t explained in the first 6 episodes such as how the Iron Fist works and who exactly is the villain and what is what were not appropriately explained until much later.

You watch this show for Colleen Wing

Colleen Wing is the saving grace. Her action scenes have story and struggle to them, and while she is not the most athletic and fanciful, I like how the implemented Japanese culture and differentiated it from Danny’s Kung Fu. When Danny started using her Katana like a Wushu blade, Colleen called it out and said not to disgrace her Katana with that style and then proceeded to show her Japanese Kendo style. I came into this show hoping they did Colleen Wing justice and they did. She doesn’t have crazy spin attacks and seems to be the most grounded in style. She is Tatsu Yamsura done right.

Now Marvel, I want a Colleen Wing comic book yesterday.

SPOILER

And her being part of the Hand came out of left field. I know in the comics, it is mentioned that her mother was part of a Hand affiliated group called the Nail, a bunch of female assassins who raided the Japanese country and cityside. It is also worth pointing out that the arc that she worked with the Hand, functioned a lot like how Iron Fist presented the Hand(it was ran by Daredevil so… long story). I was legitimately surprised by that.

SPOILER Over

Inconsistencies in the plot

A lot of people have pointed this out, but Claire Temple being in the show hurts the logical story telling. For example, the majority of this show takes place in Manhattan, right? So while it makes sense that Claire would not call Luke Cage because he is in prison in Atlanta, and Jessica Jones, she has no experience in the Hand and quite frankly would not bother getting off her drunk ass to help out and travel from Queens, Matt Murdock is literally just South of her and Danny. I would not be surprised if this did not take place within his hearing range. He has the most motivation to fight the Hand and Claire knows him the most out of anyone. Just call him to help. 

There is also weird things about Danny such as him being able to drive in spite of living in a monastery where the best way to travel was a donkey and a cart.

The choreography and the cinematic choreography was pretty poor

I am not a cinematographer. Nor am I an expert on choreography. But there are some questionable camera work being done in this series pertaining to the fight scenes. Let me give a great example of choreography and camera work.

This is the Raid 2. You see how close the camera is to the action? It is not up in there to the point that it is shakey cam, nor is to far away. You see everything even when the camera pans out considerable distance. Also like to point out how the 2 actors are always visible and you can make out the emotion and intensity on their faces. This scene told a story without you knowing exactly the context was.

Iron Fist is utterly devoid of any of this outside of Colleen Wing. For one, there are these camera angles that are so confounding to me. Like when Danny is fighting the Drunken Kung Fu guy, the camera some times pans out way too far to the point that they aren’t even the center or focus of the shot. And they kept doing this during Danny’s fights in general, only getting close to the action during the finisher and exchanges. There is also the issue of the choreography not measuring up to the content that the series should have catered to. Iron Fist should have been on par with Ip-Man or Kung-fu Assassins for choreographical inspiration. Instead, it’s this poor man’s Raid style that you see in Arrow. It works for Daredevil, but it falls apart for a series like Iron Fist.

Iron Fist is supposed to be this Kung Fu Urban Fantasy. And it’s a shame that Into The Badlands instantly recognized this and has no shame of producing this type of action while Iron Fist shies away from this.

It also hurts that Finn Jones does not seem to want to learn how to perform these maneuvers or at least become athletic enough to do them.

Final Score: Come on, Marvel. 

I also like to point out that there are Asian characters who are not getting any shine like Silk. Like Jennifer Takeda. Like Shang-Chi. Instead of making a character who is the living embodiment of “Weeb” Asian, use characters whose entire existence centers around the Asian experience.

anonymous asked:

To be honest it bothers me quite a bit that, to me, Peridot doesn't seem to be taken seriously at all as a character. Like she is just comic relief now instead of a well-rounded character with emotions. She hasn't had any emotional episodes or really any emotional moments and that bothers me. She's been through allot and I would just really like to see her have some kind of breakdown that isn't played for laughs, you know?

Honestly, Anon?  I’m going to have to strongly disagree.

Sometimes it’s played for laughs but that’s always been the case, to a degree (see also: Friend Ship).  In some ways, that’s part of what does make her well-rounded – sometimes her scenes are comedic and other times they’re really serious and/or emotionally-charged.

She really has had some truly emotional moments…

…starting with this episode right here - Catch And Release.

Peridot was absolutely terrified in this episode; and whereas her rage was sometimes played for laughs (such as chasing Steven around while slapping him, and trying to flush herself down the toilet with that disgruntled look on her face), her actual fear wasn’t treated as something comedic.  Far from it, in fact.

In these GIFs, we see her have an actual meltdown for the very first time.  She’s scared for her life and it shows.  She’d previously been this cocky smartass who was basically running rings around the Crystal Gems - but here, she’s not like that.  She truly thinks she’s trapped on the earth and is going to die when the Cluster emerges; nothing about this scene is amusing.  We’re supposed to feel bad for her.

She’s then further reduced to sitting on the floor of Steven’s bathroom, desperately clutching onto the limb enhancer’s foot like some sort of comfort object - before flinching away from Steven with what looks like tears of fear in her eyes when he playfully suggests that a towel can be used as a “weapon”.  Her reaction to Steven here is actually heartbreaking, and might even suggest that she’s used to being attacked, hence her instinctive reaction to cover her face as well as her belief that everything around her is some sort of weapon.

In the very next episode, When It Rains, we get another emotional Peridot scene where she faces up to something that she’s terrified of – the unknown.  This is an absolutely huge moment for Peridot and the way the scene plays out is just beautiful.

And let’s not forget her heartfelt apology to Amethyst in Too Far.

Or her shedding a tear in Gem Drill when she laments about Homeworld and how different her life is now.

During (and since) her redemption, she’s also started to show empathy for others…

…and nowhere has this been more apparent than with how she behaves around Lapis.

In the scene above, Peridot gives quite a powerful speech to Lapis about how she knows what Lapis is going through, even after Lapis broke her beloved tape recorder.  Again, this is a serious scene showing a different side to Peridot’s personality and isn’t being played for laughs.

There’s also this emotionally-charged scene in Room For Ruby, where Lapis opens up to Peridot and Steven about how she’s feeling – and Peridot looks absolutely heartbroken by how upset Lapis is.

I do agree though, to an extent, that Peridot does bottle some things up; but it’s bound to come out eventually.  I can’t imagine that we won’t see some sort of reaction from her regarding her past behaviours, for example (such as trying to kill the Crystal Gems and being willing to leave the earth to die).  It’s probably just that now isn’t the right time for it. 

In order to achieve a balance with her character, there has to be enough funny scenes to balance out the emotional ones – and the fact that a fair few of her scenes are played for laughs actually makes the emotional scenes have much more impact.

“I think it’s actually like what Eurus says - the emotional turmoil is actually worse that gore. We wouldn’t want to do that anyway. Particularly the scene with Molly is really a gut…really puts you through the wringer. And, actually, nothing happens except a ticking clock and he [Sherlock] has to say something he can’t - she [Molly] has to say something she can bring herself to say and he can’t bring himself to say and it’s really powerful. And, that’s the way to do it.”

Mark Gatiss on The Final Problem

“I’ll tell you what’s interesting about that scene is it was a completely different scene. It was a completely different scene there. And two people liked it and that was me and Mark, and absolutely everybody else hated it. And we kept saying ‘no, it’s good’ against a title wave of ‘we don’t like this scene.’  And, on the very last day we spent writing this episode we looked at each other and said, ‘Look, you know what, everyone thinks this is shit, except you and me. Let’s just go to our office and think of something else.’  So, we did. And, it was just written in the morning and we came out saying ‘That is the BEST SCENE in the episode!!!’ We always said the other one was flawed.”  Steven Moffat

“Sherlock finally understands he’s stronger and smarter than Mycroft, in a way. Not because he actually is smarter, because he is less smart, but because he is, uh, his emotions, his connections to other human beings, um, the wisdom he’s gained from the connections he has gained in the world make him stronger. He sees that partly because of the extreme of Eurus, who has no connection to anything. He’s just pure brain, not understanding anything of what it is to be human, makes him realize that everything he has worked towards, everything he has tried to step away from himself and tried to deny about himself, is what makes him the strongest one. He isn’t as smart as Eurus. He isn’t as smart as Mycroft. He’s just always going to win against them because he is better and stronger and that it him becoming the Sherlock Holmes of Basil Rathbone and Jeremy Brett. The one we’re used to. The wise old man of Baker St. Who’s still terrifying and still cold, but has a heart you never doubt.” Steven Moffat

  • That entire era could be player!chim tbh, he wore so many sleeveless shirts, he showed off those amazing arms that he worked so hard for, he was in jeans so the thighs were a thing and it was just a really good look overall
  • Of course, player!chim does the BST look and the orange hair and the red for a few months as well bc he can pull all the things off
  • Okay so I’ve got a couple looks for player!chim, just hear me out I have a plan (both of them are airport looks, my memory sucks so I couldn’t even begin to remember their dates just by looking at them but typically I can tell the era bc hair)
  • The first look is from the BST era I think, it’s more of a date look, it’s casual but has enough effort put into it that his date doesn’t think he just showed up in his pajamas but it’s all black!JImin bc that is my s h i t, he had on black jeans (aka my fave) a black turtleneck and then a black leather jacket !!!! and he had sunglasses on 1000000000/10
  • The second look seems like it’s from the Boy in Luv era, it’s more of a casual, I’m just here to chill look, it’s when he wore black leather (??) pants, a white tank top with a bit of promo for the LA Dodgers on it, what looks like some Timberlands, a black snapback that was backwards !!!!!!!!!! and then his backpack, a jacket around his hips (in some other pictures from that day, he’s wearing the jacket) and some headphones bc college!Jimin is forever off in his own world
  • Also just gonna throw this in there bc I love chim with tattoos but player!chim has a couple of tats, he has the MAMA tattoos and one on his collarbone that you can see the very end of when he wears t-shirts
  • Jimin is another flirt but he’s also a bit of a dater, he’s kinda in the middle
  • Okay so here’s the thing with Jimin, he’s really shy but at the same time, when he feels comfortable/in his element, he pops right out of that shell
  • He has moments where he’s really flirty and charming and can win anyone’s heart in under a minute (friendly reminder that it took Chanyeol 0.2 seconds to fall for Jimin and that was with Jimin just looking at him)
  • But he also has moments where he gets really blushy like when people approach him first, he gets a bit flustered and no matter how many times it happens, he never really gets used to that feeling bc it’s just o h
  • So he’s either the biggest flirt that’ll get anyone and everyone giggling like a child with their first crush or he’s the child with the crush that can barely make eye contact
  • Either way, people love him almost instantly and it’s not hard to see why, how does someone not love Jimin he’s so pure and cute and giggly and just his smile can bring so much happiness 
  • When he’s in a flirty mood, he does that thing where he’s leaning on his arm against a wall and talking to whoever he’s flirting with and he sends lil winks when they walk away with the promise of a date that night
  • He’s very playful when he’s flirty, he’s a super affectionate person as is so he’s always got his arm around them or he’s holding their hand and he playfully teases them a lot 
  • He’s always got really cute dates, going down to the beach at sunset, going to the local carnival/festival, going out on a romantic dinner
  • He’s another gentleman (all of BTS are) so he’s really polite towards his dates and they always have fun on the dates, he’s yet to have a boring date
  • Jimin would never hurt anyone, he’s a really sensitive person, he seems like he’s really in tune with the people around him so the “breaking up” bit is really hard but he also doesn’t wanna be flirting/dating someone and then start it up with someone else at the same time
  • He doesn’t like to lead anyone on so he never lets the relationship get too far, he always makes sure the other person knows this is all casual, no relationships are happening yet, etc.
  • You two meet when you take the same art class as him and you two become friends
  • You’re new to the school so you don’t really know about him or his reputation and you would’ve n e v e r guessed if you just went off of his personality
  • He’s so funny and precious and he’s so huggable, he always gives the best hugs, they’re really warm and he always smells really good
  • He’s s o talented and his drawings are always amazing and you’re forever complimenting him, which gets him really blushy and giggly and shy and that’s just super cute
  • You find out through some people in the class that he’s known to be a bit of a player, that he dates a new person every other week, that he’s never been interested in a serious relationship
  • You’re a bit sad bc you’d already started crushing on him and now you’re finding out that he’s not looking for a relationship and that he’s probably super used to being crushed on
  • You take the chance when he asks you out bc you figure you might as well, you’ve already got a crush, it’s not gonna go away by rejecting him
  • And just like everyone told you, he says it’s all casual when he’s dropping you off and that he’s not looking for anything serious rn and your heart is just ow
  • You two go on a couple dates and he’s always really fun and you find yourself forgetting about the whole casual thing every time bc he’s so sweet and kind, it’s hard not to want to be with him when he’s playing piano and singing for you with that beautiful voice he rarely uses
  • He starts developing feelings as well but he ignores it and goes on thinking that he’s okay with it being casual bc that’s always been what he wants
  • It doesn’t really work but it all comes to a halt when he sees someone flirting with you and then it’s just mm mm everything in him is not happy with this scene at all
  • He’s not used to being jealous so he’s not fully sure what to do, especially since you’re not technically his and he’s not yours so it’s not like he can just walk up and say excuse me I’m the boyfriend
  • So he does his best to show his emotions towards you on the next date, he makes it super romantic and he sits down with you and the two of you have a really long talk about how the casual thing isn’t working out for either of you
  • “We can make it exclusive on one condition”
  • “Name it and it’s yours”
  • “You gotta sing for me more often”
  • “Only if you kiss me afterwards”
  • “I think we have a deal” 

Two more Codywan wedding thoughts, because it’s just such a great excuse to shove everyone in a room and stir up family drama.

1. Kamino 100% attempts to wear a light silver dress. Luckily, neither groom is ever aware of this. The other Fett bros (+ Anakin maybe?) have a hasty conference about it and decide off the bat to not involve Cody or Obi-Wan because they’d probably attempt to negotiate with her and there’s simply no doing that.  Fives of course is all for just marching up to her and upending a bottle of red wine on the dress, but Rex* points out that it will only feed her victim complex and create a bigger scene. Eventually it’s decided that Kix should be the dress assassin, because he always was and still is Kamino’s favorite, so he’s able make it seem like an honest accident. (*Rex has become pretty savvy about her emotional manipulation tactics, thanks to the Tup custody scuffle)

2. Originally I thought that Obi-Wan would just straight-up not invite Xanatos, but now I’m wondering if it would be more in his nature to extend the olive branch? Mostly just because it deeply amuses me to imagine Xan starting to get shitty at the reception and Anakin taking GREAT delight in bodily removing him from the premises.

Supergirl Season 1 Appreciations Week - Day 1

The moment you knew you loved the show:

This scene is the moment very moment I loved the show because, the music is so emotional, you really feel Kara’s anger that has built up and is finally being released. For me, it was the first time you saw a different side to Kara, a more human side…what I mean by this, is she isn’t always bubbly and happy. It’s deeper than just something making her feel sad or angry in a moment it’s much deeper than that.
