Title: Even lovers drown Artist:Bekkie (coming soon) Beta:Brooke Word count: 17, 200 Rating: R Warnings: Bullying in the first part, and a little bit of smut later on. Also to be safe, there are two scenes that involve drowning, one where the character loses consciousness, but no character death Summary: Dan meets Phil when he’s nine and Phil’s thirteen, and he very quickly becomes the best thing in Dan’s life. But Phil’s a merman and no one else believes that he exists. A/N:Playlist here!
learn a photoshop tip that could save you from endless frustration
ever tried colouring a gif / screencap that just won’t work? try letting photoshop do the work for you!!
open a screencap of your choice (i’m going to choose this one because who doesn’t appreciate scott mccall)
click adjustments, and then curves and click on the nifty auto button
and this is after!! wow, so magic, so coloured
it immediately balances out the blues to make it more neutral, as well as adding contrast and jazz. so next time you’re faced with a hella blue / orange / red whatever floats your boat scene, try this out! (it works like 80% of the time)
Tell me about the Root kiss. Was that a big gift for the fans? NOLAN: [laughs] It’s a tricky one here. It’s not just a gift for them. We’ve been invested in that relationship from the beginning. I remember the first episode that had a scene between Sarah and Amy and there was an electricity between the two characters. We were standing on set watching the two of them act together and we thought, this is a great pairing. There’s great chemistry here between these characters. The best thing about television is you get a chance to write in to the feedback given to you, and there was great electricity.
What I love about this statement is it establishes that Shaw and Root’s relationship was never, ever some sort of fanservice - it was something that the producers saw at its inception, while it was happening, and had the exact same reaction the fans did: these two have mad, awesome chemistry.
The difference is, unlike so many other TV shows where two characters of the same gender give off a sexy vibe between each other, the Person of Interest creators didn’t ignore it or keep it only as silly subtext for the fans. Nope. Person of Interest did something about it. They made it a part of both characters’ development and ultimately an important aspect of the overall story. To them, the feelings between Root and Shaw were real and never irrelevant. How rare and how greatly appreciated.
I almost died while watching it. I mean it. I had to count to 10 and breathe to calm down during some scenes because they really made me so so so anxious.
It’s based on a true story, and it makes sick to think that things that were shown in this movie really existed, not so long ago. A religious cult in Chile run by a nazi sounds crazy, but it actually existed!!!!
It’s not really fun to watch because it makes you think about the horrors of this world, but, you know, we have to remember those horrors to avoid them happening again.
I don’t even have words for Emma Watson’s beauty and talent. You could see that she really got into the character, and she managed to transmit her desperation to the viewer, I think that’s why this film stressed me out so much. The bad guy (Michael Nyqvist) was also great. Oh, and by the way, if you ever see Daniel Bruhl, please tell him that I have a huge (platonic) crush on him. Thanks.
It’s set in Chile, but we don’t see much of the country, and the characters don’t even speak spanish. I think the director managed to show the revolution and dictatorship atmosphere really well.
The only thing that bothered me was that the characters weren’t developed very well and their actions didn’t always make sense so I was left a little confused. Also, the romantic part was really unnecessary, and it turned the film into the usual blah blah blah love love love kiss kiss kiss.
prompt: Phil is a boarding school student, and he has pretty much everything. His dad owns the school, he’s pretty popular, has the best room, gets all the best treatment – he’s the King. Dan is a cleaner/phil’s personal maid there, and he isn’t as lucky. Some students are assholes to Dan, including Phil at first.

This is really fucking great.
It’s been three days and Phil’s been lapping up
the freedom like a cat. He’s spent an evening outside with friends from his
Maths class; sipping from beer bottles and watching the sun set over the tennis
courts, managed to sneak around the twenty four hour library with Noah at two
in the morning, coffees in one hand and Greek statue books in the other (Noah
was a lot more intent on giggling at the statues’ comical penis size rather
than actually needing them for a Classics course), and even slept over at Dan’s
Okay, so it wasn’t exactly deliberate. They’d just been watching a few films in bed and, well,
after a few minor complications kind-of dozed off together, but Phil felt a
little weird about leaving Dan on his own after what had happened whilst
watching the end of Titanic.
“What d’you have?” Phil had asked through a
mouthful of popcorn, shuffling around the mattress to get comfy. “Pulp Fiction? I haven’t watched that one
in a while.”
“Um, no,” Dan had scoured his DVD rack.
Dogs?” Phil tried.
“No,” Dan sighed.
“Is that even out on DVD yet?”
“It’s been out for ages,” Phil rolled his eyes. “Okay. What about Django Unchained?”
“I do, but I don’t know where the disc is.”
“Kill Bill?” Phil suggested desperately.
“Jackie Brown?Anything by Tarantino?”
“Look, I’m not a bloody Blockbuster,” Dan muttered.
you’re not, too,” Phil smirked. “You’d be the reason they’ve gone bankrupt.”
“Ever the charmer, you are,” Dan threw a glance
over his shoulder. Phil grinned.
“Okay, fine. What do you have?” Phil had asked. “And don’t you dare say Twilight,
otherwise I’ll ask my dad to put my tag back on.”
Dear Diary, I love my life. Seriously, becoming Elena Gilbert is the best thing that has ever happened to me. I finally have everything I ever wanted. I’m young, healthy, gorgeous. Everyone loves me, but best of all, I’m a vampire again.
On Jimmy Fallon, Liam said you chewed garlic and onions before the kissing scenes…
I wouldn’t say that—I just wouldn’t think so much about the kissing. I would just kind of eat whatever I wanted; I think the onions that you were referring to was that I just had a sandwich with mustard and raw red onion.
How are you like your character?
I always get nervous making comparisons because Katniss is the leader of a rebellion that changes the world and I’m not. [I’m] just chilling.
What is something you learned about yourself that surprised you?
[Referencing Liam Hemsworth] I guess the thing that surprised me is that I would never expect to ever have a man this good-looking ever be my best friend. I just would never assume those things could happen, but he is. He’s the most wonderful, lovable, family-oriented, sweet, hilarious, amazing guy. He actually taught me how to be fair and to stand up for myself. It’s my biggest weakness: negotiating. I’m a wimp about standing up for myself and Liam is always fair. He’s always on time, he’s always doing his job, and he’s good about making sure that things stay fair. He’s teaching me to toughen up a little bit. That was important, I need that.
A lot of people look up to you, what’s that pressure like?
I have an amazing group of people around me. I surround myself with “no” people. They will tell me, ‘Stop doing that’ or 'You look terrible'—honest, real people. My publicists I’ve had since I was 16 years old, they watched me grow up and they know me and they do love me; my agent, I’ve had since I was 17. I have an amazing group of friends that are not in the business that I’ve been friends with for years before any of this happened that I trust. Something strange does happen that you don’t expect. A very tiny thing that makes a big emotional difference is just the way people look at you. Because I don’t feel any different and so sometimes when you go out and you see the way that people look at you, it makes you feel alienated and kind of odd. So I try to surround myself with people that never look at me that way, never fake laugh at my jokes.
For the last day of filming were you thinking that it would be really emotional?
It’s complicated because it was such a long shoot. It’s hard and exhausting, so there was a part of wanting to wrap so we could give our bodies a break but realizing that it was over that we weren’t coming back. It was complicated, a mix of feelings. It was relief on one end because we were exhausted, but just so sad. We’re still best friends with each other, and we talk to each other all the time—way too much—but it’s different. If all I had was this friendship with Josh and Liam—if that’s all I ever got from this—I would consider it a blessing. Our lives changed together and we had each other.
