this scene always makes me emotional

Likes and dislikes of episode 2….

Likes:

  • Cheryl Blossom the entire episode. She’s awesome!
  • Betty in cute outfits with mini skirts. What a babe!
  • Jughead and FP interacting. They’re always amazing together and their emotional scenes have me shook every time.
  • Seeing that sick bitch Grundy’s cold, dead body.
  • Charles as the new Reggie. Especially his chemistry with KJ/Archie. Those boys defo love each other!
  • Alice Cooper calling Betty out on her bullshit and making sure she knows what she’s done
  • Midge seemed pretty cool
  • The Bughead finger under the chin kiss. I’m so here for dom Jughead!
  • Penelope Blossom looking so extra even bandaged up.

Dislikes:

  • •Most of the acting. I don’t know if it’s the cheesy lines, or maybe just that the actors were getting into the swing of things again, but most of it was shoddy. Fingers crossed for a huge improvement!
  • The Lodges- sorry they just really bore me as a family
  • Betty being a heartless bitch. I do like it when she’s strong and takes no shit, but that was pure evil. She doesn’t seem to understand that Cheryl’s twin brother was actually murdered! Blackmailing her in that way was gross. (Btw I love Betty, just felt this was too far, and she seemed so cold whilst doing it)
  • Anytime the words “jingle jangle” are uttered 😷
  • The Pussycats, and their horrific performance on the roof of Pops. Why?
  • The disappearance of several Bughead kisses and moments. WTF??! Why would they play such a cruel trick on us??
  • Introducing Midge only to kill her off in the same episode. Again, WHY?
  • This episode felt a bit like a filler.
My husband is a good man, and a good feminist ally. I could tell, as I walked him through it, that he was trying to grasp what I was getting at. But he didn’t. He said he’d try to do more cleaning around the house to help me out. He restated that all I ever needed to do was ask him for help, but therein lies the problem. I don’t want to micromanage housework. I want a partner with equal initiative.

However, it’s not as easy as telling him that. My husband, despite his good nature and admirable intentions, still responds to criticism in a very patriarchal way. Forcing him to see emotional labor for the work it is feels like a personal attack on his character. If I were to point out random emotional labor duties I carry out—reminding him of his family’s birthdays, carrying in my head the entire school handbook and dietary guidelines for lunches, updating the calendar to include everyone’s schedules, asking his mother to babysit the kids when we go out, keeping track of what food and household items we are running low on, tidying everyone’s strewn about belongings, the unending hell that is laundry—he would take it as me saying, “Look at everything I’m doing that you’re not. You’re a bad person for ignoring me and not pulling your weight.”

Bearing the brunt of all this emotional labor in a household is frustrating. It’s the word I hear most commonly when talking to friends about the subject of all the behind-the-scenes work they do. It’s frustrating to be saddled with all of these responsibilities, no one to acknowledge the work you are doing, and no way to change it without a major confrontation.

“What bothers me the most about having any conversation around emotional labor is being seen as a nag,” says Kelly Burch, a freelance journalist who works primarily from home. “My partner feels irritated and defensive by the fact that I’m always pointing out what he’s not doing. It shuts him down. I understand why it would be frustrating from his perspective, but I haven’t figured out another way to make him aware of all the emotional and mental energy I’m spending to keep the house running.”

And it is written that the first seal shall be broken when a righteous man sheds blood in hell. As he breaks, so shall it break. We had to break the first seal before any others. Only way to get the dominoes to fall, right? Topple the one at the front of the line. When we win, when we bring on the apocalypse and burn this earth down, we’ll owe it all to you, Dean Winchester.“

-whenever eddie is the one who has to go, richie is always screaming some cheesy corny shakespeare-ish old english quotes declaring his forever lasting love and the cruelty of eddie to walk away on him

-eddie is always so embarrassed by this, so he, with a burning red ass head and will to just drop dead, always tries to outscream richie by desperately yelling BEEP BEEP RICHIE TOZIER PL E A  S    E

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.

BTS Reaction - Telling their S/O They are Virgins

Namjoon

Namjoon wasn’t all too ashamed about still being a virgin at the age of 22 because he knew he just didn’t have the time to get to know someone for long enough to build a relationship to where it got to that step, but here he was with you, your relationship going for a strong 4 months and he felt like you both were in the right part of your relationship to take it to the next step. You were surprised at his sudden confession, not expecting that he was still a virgin because he was very skilled in other areas when it came to that field. You felt somewhat glad that you would be his first but at the back of your mind you were a little worried that you wouldn’t be good enough because you weren’t all that experienced yourself. 

“We can be each others first”

Intimacy, it was the one thing you and Jin haven’t ventured in with your relationship. You had been dating Jin for about 6 months now and things were going smoothly, it was just the fact that he never let things escalate further than mild groping while making out. You were starting to question your attractiveness to him. So today, you came up with a plan, you were going to wear his favourite dress to try to seduce him over dinner. You could tell he couldn’t keep his eyes off of you, especially when he would continue twirling the same forkful of spaghetti for 20 seconds. You got up gingerly before crossing the table to his side. You sat on his lap, seductively biting you lip before softly pecking his lips, letting your lips linger for a while. Before you knew it, you were on your back with Jin above you, his hands groping your skin over your dress. You made a move to take off his shirt before he stiffened and drew back. ‘What was the problem?’ You had asked, slightly frustrated with the entire situation. He sighed softly before admitting that he was a virgin. A virgin was the furthest thing in your mind when it came to Jin. His sex appeal was ridiculous, so it had never crossed your mind that there was a possibility for him to be inexperienced. You smiled softly before wrapping your arms around his waist.

“I’m not experienced enough for you”

Yoongi

Just like Namjoon he didn’t care much about him still being a virgin, he had chances before where he had the choice to have sex but it just wasn’t the right time or the right person for him, call him old fashion but that’s how he was. Being with you was totally different, your connection was something that he treasured, he felt like he could share all his problems and concerns with you, realising this he decided he would tell you that he was ready for you both take the next step, only if you were ready of course. You were all more than ready to deepen your relationship with Yoongi but when he told you that you would be his first you were shocked but totally understood the reason why. Suddenly feeling way more attracted to your boyfriend you walked towards him and straddled his lap, each of your legs at the sides of his as you kissed him with before you pulled away.

Hoseok

Hoseok The boys and I had been in the dance practice room for a while now. They were messing around and I was, as usual, sat on the ground in the corner, watching Hoseok with mini intervals phone time. They had started off with the dance routine to fire, then baepsae before finishing with their dance routine for Blood, Sweat & Tears. Blood, sweat and tears was, incomparably my favorite dance practice out of them all. The butter smooth transitions into each of the member’s parts was enchanting, especially Hoseok’s. He just had a way of making my eyes focus on him when ever he danced. He just looked so sexy. After they had finished, he walked straight over to me, his body glistening with sweat while a satisfied smile adorned his face. ’ How many girls have you charmed into bed with that dance?’ you teased him lightly. You two had never been intimate, being that you were still in the early stages of dating, but you always did wonder what it would be like to take that step with him. To your surprise he softly uttered that he was still a virgin. Your body filled with warmth at the thought of being the first person to see that side of him.

You and Jimin were currently on the couch in the middle of a heated make out session. His hands that were previously tangled in your hair was now teasingly running down your back,sending tingles down your spine, making his way to your hips. His grip on you tighten as he felt his pants become a size smaller, needing more friction he guided your hips to rock back and forth against his. He couldn’t help but let a groan of satisfaction pass his lips for he was loving this new sensation. You yourself was a groaning mess, you waited so long this and hopefully you wouldn’t have to wait any longer if this continued to go where you think it was going. Sure you and Jimin had been intimate before but it was just a little groping here and there when you two made out. Needing to feel more of him and not just through his jeans you slowly moved your hand down his toned chest until it reached what you were looking for, his jeans, as you were about to remove the band of leather that was keeping you from what you wanted his hand immediately stopped yours. Taken back at his sudden actions you reluctantly pulled away from his now swollen lips to ask him why he stopped you. Jimin wasn’t sure how you’d react to him being inexperiended in this field, so he was hesitant in telling you why he had stopped you, gaining the courage he blurted it out. All you could do was smile, him being a virgin didn’t change the way you felt about him in the slightest.

“I..I never had sex before”

“Well I think it’s time to change that”

Taehyung 

Movie nights were something you always enjoyed. Especially since it was a very effective way to spend time with Tae. He was almost always busy, whether it be tours when he’d be away for months on end, or just schedules where he’d attend fan meets, have recording sessions, and have dance practices. So when ever he got to come home, we’d have a movie night, just the two of us and a movie of our choice. We’d been in the middle of watching a newly released movie when a mild sex scene came on when suddenly, the mood became extremely tense. You looked across at Taehyung, slightly confused as to why he was twitching his hands and avoiding eye contact with you at all costs. If there was one thing you knew about Taehyung, if not anything else, was that he thoroughly enjoyed eye contact with you. He always said he could see every emotion just by glancing into my eyes, and he loved it.’ Babe, what’s wrong?’ I asked, concerned. Was the movie that I picked that bad? He cleared his throat before turning to face me, still avoiding my gaze. 'It makes me uncomfortable’ he said softly, a slight blush adorning his face. 'Why?’ i asked curiously. 'Because i haven’t experienced any of that before’ he replied, his ears turning red. I hadn’t even thought of that possibility. I simultaneously blushed with him.

It had been 6 hours straight that Jungkook had been playing videos and not paying you any attention. You tried to catch his attention many times, you even cooked his favourite dish but he just nodded in your direction saying to put it in the oven until he was ready, his eyes not budging from the TV screen not even for a split second. You huffed about to give up when an idea popped into your head, a smirk forming on lips as you got up from your spot on the bed and slowly made your way over to where he was seated. Not caring if he lost his game you place yourself in his lap and straddled his waist. He finally stopped curious of your actions. You wasted no time in attacking his lips lightly sucking his bottom lip. He immediately reacted by dropping the remote to grab your waist and kissed you back. Smirking at your plan working you started to push him down on the bed as your make out session became more intense. You realised he was being hesitant about the way he touched you or trying to carry this any further. A little disappointed you detached you lips from his and looked at him with curiosity. 

“What’s wrong, aren’t you sexually attracted to me?” 

“No no no I am, it’s just…… I sorta kinda never had sex before..”

RAMBLES

I’m such a sucker for emotional monologues like this. Done right, it can really drive people’s emotions. I can’t really take any credit for this whole video since Rhuze did such an amazing performance. You know, what’s silly is that anytime I watch or work on an emotional video, there’s always at least one scene where I dwell on for quite a while. A good example is that scene in Gravity Falls where Dipper and Stan were both yelling at Mabel over what she should do with the switch to the device that was counting down. I dwell on those kinds of scenes so much which makes me take longer than needed on the scene if I’m making the video. In this case, it was almost the whole monologue. You have any of those scenes that you keep going back to?

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)

Rebuilt: Arrow 5x22 Review (Missing)

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

Originally posted by pewslight

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?

Deleted Scene (The Doctor’s Song for Bill and Heather)

Honestly, one of the most magical scenes ever filmed in the series. It’s a shame that Peter has so many guitar bits that will never make it to a soundtrack because they’re so short. 

I’ve always loved that they were able to use his guitar as a clever, poignant way to express what the Doctor was feeling at any given time without words. This and his heartbreaking rendition of Clara’s Song from last year’s finale elicit such a deep emotional response for me.

The thing that will always make me emo is Minhyuk’s face before and after they announced the 7th member to debut in NoMercy.

Why? Because right before they called out his name the look on his face wasn’t nervousness, it wasn’t excitement - it was defeat. At that moment,standing as the last 3, Minhyuk was convinced that he wasn’t going to debut especially after always being placed in the last ranks. And when they called out his name, you can literally see the shock across his face - the disbelief. Not only that but you can see the tears that were beginning to pool in his eyes. Imagine the shock he must have felt when he was convinced he wasn’t going to debut and that his dream seemed farther away but then to be proven wrong as his name was called. Idk about you but this scene will probably make me emotional for the rest of my life tbh

Cait’s POV: The Twin Bed Scene

Awww…it was Tobias’s last scene!!

What did you think about that twin beds twist when you read the script for this episode?

Balfe: I loved that. That’s a big departure from the book, which initially I was like, “What?! No!” Because there’s a scene in the book that I had loved so much, which is the night before Frank and Claire have the fight, they’re still in bed together. I always thought that was such an interesting scene. But I think in terms of the TV show, to explain how far apart they are, you needed a scene like that. And it was actually Tobias’ last scene that he filmed.

Did that make it more emotional for you?

Balfe: Honestly, it was such a funny day because they needed to get that shot of him looking over to me and I roll over, and I had to face plant. I got the worst case of the giggles. I was just crying I was laughing so much. And then [producer] Matt B. Roberts and myself decided we would do one take where I would turn and say “goodbye” after he says “good night,” and then I had real tears. So that scene is very dear to me.

On Keith and leaving Allura behind

One thing I’ve always wanted to clear up is the ‘Keith is cold-hearted’ thing. I can see how the scene of him being ready to leave Allura behind might come across as such, to quote Hunk: “Keith, that’s cold-hearted even for you.” 

But that is not how things actually are. Let me explain why he acted the way he did back then, because Keith has had just as many emotions about it as everyone else. 

Keith is rational, observant and tends to state stuff exactly as it is, with all facts lied out to make sure that everyone gets the whole picture. (see: how he explained his board in s1e1, how he argues with Lance at the beginning of s1e3 etc.) He has been known to accept critique pretty well - he actively tries to work on his temper (“patience yields focus”) and accepted that Lance’s plan was better than his in s1e7. In turn, however, he expects people to treat him the same way. If there isn’t any evidence to contradict it, he takes things people tell him at face value and accepts them as facts. It is one of the reasons him and Lance clash often, Keith can be found constantly correcting Lance’s statements and Lance doesn’t appreciate that. 

This is coupled with his rational personality. I have no doubt that part of that comes from having been forced to grow up without a family and people to comfort him when he was feeling lost, he has had to deal with reality screwing him over quite a lot of times already. He is extremely cautious and protective of his friends when a possible threat appears (see: how he placed himself in front of the team when Klaizap appeared in s1e2), probably exactly because he knows that when they are gone, they are gone. That happened to his dad, that happened to Shiro. 

And now he thinks the same thing has happened to Allura.

It is not that he doesn’t want to help her - because he does. He really does, he even said so himself. (And he wasn’t lying. We all know that Keith is an absolutely horrible liar.) In his mind, there were four facts battling with one another: 1) I want to save my friend; 2) “the ship that is headed to Zarkon’s central command?” “the place that’s way too dangerous for us to attack?” (a direct quote from an exchange between Hunk and Keith from s1e10. Keith had accepted that information a fact); 3) we are fighting against an enemy we know next to nothing about; and 4) I am responsible for the entire universe and I can only protect it with Voltron, for which Allura technically isn’t essential. 

So he stands there and goes through all the facts. And he comes to the - absolutely logical - conclusion that it is too dangerous to go to Zarkon’s headquarters. He could lose even more friends. He could lose the universe’s only hope. So he does what he always does: suppress his emotions for the greater good. He did that there, he did it when he decided to give up the blade in s2e8.

But then the others turn against him. We can’t see his face when they begin to vehemently protest against his statement-

-but I have no doubt that it would be serious and reflective. The backlash would have made him reconsider the conclusion he had come to. Because that’s what he does when he faces critique: take a step back and reevaluate. Obviously, fact 2) wasn’t quite right. [Also note how open his body language is, he is more than willing to discuss this.] 

And once the execution of their plan starts, which means an actual chance for getting his friend back, he is right at the front of the group again. 

Keith isn’t cold-hearted. Not at all. Does this look like the face of a cold-hearted person to you?

Because that is the face he made when he came to the conclusion that it would be too dangerous to save Allura. He is not happy about it. He genuinely believed that she was already lost and they were about to condemn the universe for a suicide rescue mission. If there is anything he can do to save his friends, he will do it. Like, seriously - he had never seen Zarkon before that episode. For all he knew, Zarkon could be 5ft tall, wield magic and be immortal. But as soon as he saw a normal-sized Galra in armor, Zarkon suddenly became less of an abstract concept and more of something that he has an actual fighting chance against. Look at how his attitude towards him changed in season 2, at the end of it he volunteered to infiltrate Zarkon’s base on his own!  

(Also. He was the one that asked Allura if she was sure that she wanted to come with them: “I’m sorry, princess, did you say ‘we’?!” in s1e10. He was worried for her. There is no way he didn’t want her back.)

Keith constantly watches out for the greater good. It’s what he told Pidge when she wanted to leave to go look for her family - “everyone in the universe has families!” - and what he did when he gave up finding out about his past in the Trials of Marmora. He pushes his own emotions down because he genuinely believes one person’s life and/or comfort isn’t worth putting the entire universe at risk. And that does not equal being cold-hearted.

tl;dr: Keith has had perfectly valid reasons why he hesitated to go on the rescue mission. He wanted her back just as much as everyone else. He is not a cold-hearted asshole.

Finally done! This took me all week to finish mainly because my laptop kept crashing. I need to give props to comic book artists, making a comic page is tough let alone a whole book and I never planned to make this comic. It started with the middle drawing and I was inspired to make an emotional scene where when Irrilia was much younger, she would always tug at her mom’s tail to try and get her to stay longer and Mona would always give her and Raphael nose kisses before she left. I’ll leave their dialogue to your imagination ;)

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-
