this scene is a joy to color

Favorite Stiles Scenes: Season 6A, Episode 10: The Reunion with Dad Part 1: ‘I found you. I can’t believe I found you.’

Come on, you had to know this scene would be first one I would do! ;) Anyway, I absolutely love this scene. It’s the absolute, sheer joy on the Sheriff’s face that does it. He’s so happy to see his son again he’s almost in tears. And Stiles has missed him so much that all he can do is hug him as tight as he can. I love the Sheriff/Stiles relationship so much and you can tell that Linden and Dylan really care about each other. 

I also absolutely love the coloring for this set. I feel like I got it just perfect and you can see everything. I’m working on the second half of this scene when the Sheriff ‘sacrifices’ himself so Stiles can get out. Hopefully that one will be out tomorrow or this weekend. 

BTS & GOT7 Reaction: When their S/O giving birth and finding out that she’s having twins

OMG THIS WAS SUPPOSE TO BE DON A LONG TIME AGO!! I’m sooooo sorry this took so long! IDK why doing this reaction took forever, but I finally manage to do it! Thank you patient Nonnie! I’m sorry if this fully didn’t match your prompt. I was a bit clueless as to what dialogue they should have since I’m pretty sure that most of it would be S/O screaming her head off as a second baby was coming out of her.

Hi! Can I ask for a got7 & bts reaction being with their S/o during labor and meeting their first child although it happens to be twins and they didn’t expected that since doctors have missed it

*Come Back To Me | Pt 2* Newt x reader

○ Part one here!

◘ Anonymous asked:

Hi! Big fan! I was wondering if you can do a story about Newt x reader as in how they met in Hogwarts, the development of their relationship (from friendship to lovers), how he was going to propose to her but she gets killed by Grindelwald’s followers in order to protect Newt. He is knocked out and when he wakes up, he’s completely destroyed. However, later on the readers ghost comes to visit and tells him everything will be ok and so will he. I just need a angsty yet beautiful story please 😭

The next few days went by in a blur. Things had obviously changed between you and Newt, but you rather enjoyed the holding hands while walking to classes together and the late night cuddles in the common room by the fireside when everyone else had gone to bed. People noticed your new relationship, but no one was surprised really.

You were sitting on the couch in front of the fire one evening and you had your head resting on Newt’s shoulder, your hands intertwining with one another’s. You were enjoying each other’s company and the silent crackling of the fire.

Yes, I do teach creative writing: attribution.

There’s no need to ever use dialog tags. They are often clunky and add nothing. 

“I’ll kill you!” she screamed. (Can you guess she might be screaming?)

“What is that?” he asked. (Well, duh, it’s a question.)

“I love you,” I declared. (That’s a declarative sentence, so that’s obvious.)

“Not today,” he replied. (The word “replied” is my least favorite.)

“It’s a girl,” she said. (Good old “said.”)

But, you retort, we NEED dialog tags to clarify who’s speaking. That’s absolutely true, and I’m not a fan of unattributed dialog where you have to count back to figure out who’s talking.

“Give me the gun,” he demanded.

“Take one step closer and I’ll shoot.”

“You don’t even know how to use that thing.”

“Do you really want to find out how wrong you are?”

“Do you really want to do something you’ll regret the rest of your life?”

“What I want is for you to leave me alone.”

At the end of exchanges like this, I’m checking back to make sure I know, who’s saying what. So we need attribution. But dialog tags are so boring.

Good attribution can add action (even if it’s just a gesture), emotion, thought, or description. It’s separated from the dialog by a period, not a comma as with dialog tags. The writer is forced to think more deeply about what’s happening in the scene and with the characters. The reader is not stuck in a blank room with “talking heads.” Look at my five original lines of dialog, the ones with dialog tags above, rewritten with these types of attribution.

“I’ll kill you!” She bared her teeth, her hands clenched into fists of rage.

“What is that?” He could hardly look at the box as his face drained of color.

“I love you.” I had meant to say the words clearly. Why had they come out so shy and faint?

“Not today.” His eyes were bored as he turned the sign on the door to read “Closed.”

“It’s a girl.” Joy and wonder competed on her face as she handed me the bundle.

Look at how action, thought, and description attribution add to the unattributed scene.

“Give me the gun.” He held out his hand. Was it shaking slightly?

I found the safety, clicked it off. “Take one step closer and I’ll shoot.”

“You don’t even know how to use that thing.” He was trying to smile, to make light of the unlikely scenario of me with a gun.

“Do you really want to find out how wrong you are?” I didn’t try to keep my voice steady.

His smile was grim. “Do you really want to do something you’ll regret the rest of your life?”

But I was willing to call his bluff. “What I want is for you to leave me alone.”

He pulled out the kitchen chair and sat in it, still with that smile.

Doesn’t the attribution bring a lot more depth to the scene? Can’t you picture it a lot more easily?

Remember to always start a new paragraph each time the speaker changes, and sometimes even if there is no dialog, if the “camera” moves from one person to another.

Can we please talk about this scene?

Ok, that wasn’t the reunion I imagined, but… man, THE FEELS!
I cried like a crazy person the first time I watched it {I still cry btw).
But later I re-watched it like a 100 times in a row, and… I came to some conclusions.
From this whole Marcel’s monologue we can get three important informations:

1. He’s still in deep mourning
He literally said that “his world fell apart” when he lost her. We can say that we know that already, we could clearly see that in him in 3x21.
But what we know from now on is that it fell apart and it still remains that way. Nothing has changed. He’s still hurting. He may act like he’s fine, cause we can see that he has learned to function in a world without her, but that doesn’t mean he’s not struggling. He hasn’t moved on, I think he’s just not able to do it yet.
Some can say now “Oh come on, it’s been 5 years, get over it”. On one hand, you’re right. But on the other… He’s immortal - 5 years for him is like a blink of an eye. Plus, he’s a vampire. It’s said that vampires can’t have children, but he became a father anyway. This is probably something he’s thought will never happen. He had a child, a daughter and he lost her. Losing a child is probably the worst kind of pain. You can’t get over it so easly, even in such an amount of time.

2. Revenge didn’t work out.
That one was easy to predict. Because it always ends that way. Davina had died, Marcel got his revenge on the Mikaelsons and… nothing happened. She’s not back, he still feels the same, like he said “…it’s all said and done, and you’re still gone”.

3. He thinks he’s a failure.
Davina has said to him that he didn’t failed her, that he didn’t let her down - back in 1x11 and again in 3x21. But he still thinks he did. He’s blamed the Mikaelsons for what happened to her, but mostly he has blamed himself - for not protecting her, for letting this happen. “You may think that I let you down.” - Is this about protecting Klaus in this episode or everyting in general? I think both. And that last line… “I just hope you still believe in me”. The first thing that came to my mind after hearing this was “because I don’t believe in myself”. As I said before, he’s struggling without her, even if he’s good at hiding it.

Now let’s talk about Davina.

Marcel could see her, talk to her, probably even touch her in the church, but on the cementery he couldn’t see her. She wasn’t able to show herself or she chose not to? We don’t know. But she was there - checking up on him, watching over him like a guardian angel. It looks like she’s returning the favor - she’s keeping an eye on him like he did on her before. She’s sad. But she’s not saying anything - just listening. It seems that she feels guilty for hurting hm back in the church. When Marcel is walking away and we have a close-up on her face, she’s confused and saddened, it’s like she wants to say something, comfort him but she can’t find the words. I wonder if she went after him…


Well, that wasn’t a reunion I imagined - I wanted hugs, happy tears, wide smiles, a scene filled with joy and love. We got love, but instead of joy we got pain. But I wouldn’t trade this moment for anything (I would just extended it, making Davina visible). BONUS: Marcel puts a white rose in a vase besides her grave. Just out of curiosity I checked the meaning of it’s color. A white rose symbolizes spiritual love, full of purity and sensitivity. Nice shot TO writers, nice shot.

'Westworld' Creator Lisa Joy: "I Represent Opportunities for Other Women and Women of Color"

“There is that pressure not only to be prolific but to not f— up,” Westworld creator Lisa Joy told The Hollywood Reporter of being a female TV boss during the Drama Showrunner Roundtable. “And especially when you feel the added burden of being a woman who is doing this now. I represent opportunities for other women and other people of color, and I’m trying to start my own kind of movement.”

“Nobody ever has a problem if a man writes a woman,” Joy said of her western-sci-fi series. “I wanted to be able to say, ‘Well, I can write your men and your action, too. You don’t just have to give me the love scenes, which I don’t even think are my strong suit.’ It was about trying to take as many topics and saying they’re not off-limits for me or people like me.”

anonymous asked:

What about black in Naboo culture?

I’m just gonna go ahead and do a Naboo color symbolism post.

Okay, so all of my headcanons on this start with Padme’s fashion choices, which are always symbolic, especially when she’s in her official role as Queen / Senator. So on that basis, here are some basics of color symbolism in Naboo culture:

  • White: peace, joy, celebration, renewal (Padme wears white to celebrate at the end of TPM, and to her wedding. She also wears white for Shmi’s funeral, but I think she may be aware of the connotations of mourning that white carries on Tatooine. And she’s still wearing white on Geonosis, possibly because she didn’t have time to change but Padme always has time to change or possibly because she’s there to look for a peaceful solution.)
  • Black: solidity, unwavering principles, taking a stand (Padme wears black in several of her key Senate speeches, as well as when she makes her decision to fight for her people by going to Coruscant in TPM)
  • Red: a royal color, representing life, vitality, the passion of idealism (Padme wears red in her two most idealistic moments in TPM, and she wears a darker red for the battle to retake Naboo)
  • Purple: grief, mourning, sometimes nostalgia (Padme wears purple for the first time after making the difficult decision to leave her people behind to seek justice in the Senate. She also wears purple at Qui-Gon’s funeral, and several times in ROTS. And Queen Apailana wears silver accented with purple at Padme’s funeral.)
  • Blue: a color with strong spiritual connotations, can represent new life and hope, and is therefore often used in funeral customs (Padme wears blue in the scene when she tells Anakin she’s pregnant, and again at her funeral.)
  • Yellow: joy, laughter, hope, often a celebratory color, and also a color associated with youth (Think Padme’s meadow dress.)
  • Pink: has a lot of similar associations with yellow, tinged with a sense of newness and innocence.
  • Green: growth, life, newness, hope (This isn’t a color Padme really wears often, and when she does in ROTS, it’s a dim green for a dim hope.)
  • Silver: tradition, remembrance, building on the past (Padme wears this on Coruscant in TPM, and Apailana wears it at Padme’s funeral.)
  • Brown: an earthy color, representing simplicity, groundedness, strength (Padme wears brown on Mustafar.)

Joy Division - Unknown Pleasures (1979)

5- New Dawn Fades

A change of speed, a change of style.
A change of scene, with no regrets,
A chance to watch, admire the distance,
Still occupied, though you forget.
Different colors, different shades,
Over each mistakes were made.
I took the blame.
Directionless so plain to see,
A loaded gun won’t set you free.
So you say.

We’ll share a drink and step outside,
An angry voice and one who cried,
‘We’ll give you everything and more,
The strain’s too much, can’t take much more.’
Oh, I’ve walked on water, run through fire,
Can’t seem to feel it anymore.
It was me, waiting for me,
Hoping for something more,
Me, seeing me this time, hoping for something else.

Baby on Board - Bucky Barnes

N/A:  This request was extremely cute and gave me an inspiration for something in the future. I hope you enjoy!

(Masterlist)


You joined the avengers because of your healing powers and teleportation, participating in almost every mission more by obligation than like. But when you officially met the Winter Soldier, you happened to enjoy a little more of what you did. After some months, you and Bucky started dating and didn’t take long to your relationship get serious to the point of you two start living together in one apartment. 

“Bucky, I’m gonna take a break of the Avengers.” you murmured on a Thursday’s night, after a year and a half of relationship you trembled nervously from head to toe.

“What? Why? What happened?” immediately your boyfriend was at your side, hugging and pulling you to sit on his lap, his brow furrowed in concern.

“I went to the doctor today and I… I’m not sick.“ you played with your own hands before looking up to stare at his blue eyes that were waiting for answers, your stomach rolled and you took a deep breath "We’re gonna have a mini Bucky.”

“Wait, are you serious?” Bucky’s body tensed and he looked frightened while you just nodded, then he laughed out loud and hugged you tight. “This is wonderful! We have to tell Steve!”

“Wow! Slow down, honey!” you giggled when Bucky got up from where he was still with you in his arms and walking rushed to the phone on the counter, where he deposited you while laughing excitedly.

“Sorry, doll, can’t do. We’re gonna have a baby!” Bucky spoke to you while he dialed some number until he screamed the last sentence to the phone, probably Steve. “Shut up, punk. You have to be a good example for now on, no ugly words!“

You were already with two months when you found out that you were pregnant, it was actually thanks to Natasha who was finding you strange with swollen body and always feeling sick, then you had no doubt who would be the baby’s godmother. A week after you’ve told Bucky that you were going to have a baby, you went to deliver some paperwork to Natasha and Steve. And when you came back home you found it strange that you didn’t saw your boyfriend in the room to greet you as usual.

“James? Where are you, honey?” you left your purse on the counter and walked quietly down the hall until you heard a muffled ‘I’m here’ from the extra room.

When you opened the door, you giggled raising your hands to your face trying to contain the joy that took your body seeing that scene in front of you: Bucky sat on the floor and surrounded by several white pieces of wood while reading a manual of ‘how to build a crib’. You entered the room and bent down to pick up an open box that had a colorful mobile with all the avengers.

“It’s just an idea, if you don’t like something I can-”

“Shh, it’s perfect, James.” you interrupted him, making his worried expression change to the lively expression that you were seeing in the last few days, you put the box on the floor and walked over to him, sitting beside him and smiling foolishly. “Honey, our baby already has you in his hand, did you noticed?”
