this scene kind of kills me in the feels

anonymous asked:

Can you give examples of some of the iconic dialogue that you thought Sam & Cait were not entirely comfortable with. TY

Okay don’t kill me but the “don’t be afraid, there’s the two of us now” line felt cheesy to me. Maybe it was the way it was delivered but it kind of took me out of the scene for a second. I think there’s certain lines that only come across well on paper and when they’re acted out they feel forced. 

things I love about Steve Trevor
  • He makes sure he actually thanks Diana for pulling him out of the water
  • The only time he ever expresses doubt to Diana about any of her beliefs is when he’s trying to convince her not to jeopardize the mission by killing Ludendorff, and even then it’s a hypothetical (“what if”)
    • He also does after she kills Ludendorff but that’s after her belief is shattered so I don’t really count it
  • He is so duty-bound I love him so much no wonder he and Diana got along so well
  • He just. Wants the people around him to be happy? The scene after they rescue Veld always kills me, and two parts in particular: 
    • When Charlie starts playing piano and singing and Steve says “I haven’t heard him sing in years…” and his face is all soft and you can see the shadow of a smile tugging at his lips but you can also see all the sadness in his eyes from those years of him not singing
    • And when he’s dancing with Diana and it starts to snow and she looks up and is so confused and delighted and he’s like “it’s snow… go on, touch it” and she does (also she has to let go of his hand to do it and he still encourages her to? such a small thing but oh man my heart) and he looks at her with such heart eyes
    • Honestly Chris Pine played him so well, so much complex emotion depicted even when he’s not speaking, like jfc well done
  • I love the boat scene, partly because it’s just fucking hilarious but mostly because their conversation is so respectful. She tells him she was sculpted from clay and brought to life by the breath of Zeus and his reaction is just to raise his eyebrows and say “Well, that’s neat.” 
    • I know that could read as sarcastic but it doesn’t to me at all. It’s funny, sure, but he isn’t making fun of her. It’s genuine and kind, even when what she’s saying is fairly unbelievable.
    • Just the entire way they speak in this scene… He never adopts that Mansplaining Tone™ that is so common, even when he’s actually explaining things. He talks because he wants to share information. It’s a cultural exchange, and I loved it.
  • After Veld, when they’re sitting and watching the villagers dance, he just quietly says, “You did this.” and she’s the one who smiles at him and says, “We did this.” He has so much respect for her and it kills me inside because it’s not “We did this” originally (which could be him pointing out that they’re a good team, him saying they have things in common, or a thousand other things), it’s just “You did this,” because he just wants her happy. He wants her to recognize how goddamn impressive she is. There is no agenda to what he said and it fucks me up
  • The entire scene with the kiss. Like, I’m gay as hell, usually I hate this kind of thing because it feels so unnecessary, but this was so well done I’m genuinely glad it was included
    • When he escorts her up to a room he then starts to leave. Even with all of that tension he doesn’t want to assume that she wants anything to happen. 
    • So he has his hand on the door and he starts to back out of the room and he hesitates just long enough for her to turn around and meet his gaze. And even then he’s reading that as a sign that she wants him in the room so he steps forward and closes the door behind her and then looks up again to confirm that’s what she wanted. And even after that, he crosses over to her so slowly and lets her be the one to actually initiate the kiss. 
    • He gives her a thousand and one chances to change her mind, to give him a small indication that she’s uncomfortable or doesn’t want it to happen, and it’s only once she lets all of those chances pass that they kiss. 
    • Consent-based relationships, man. Fuck me up.
  • Speaking of consent… the scene after Diana returns to Veld and sees the gas has killed everyone fucks me up
    • Steve’s followed her there and is clearly freaked the fuck out because she’s just gone and he physically can’t go in to try to find her because of the gas
    • So when she comes out he’s so visibly relieved and he goes forward and puts his hands around her face, clearly wanting to kiss her, and she shoves him away and says “stay away from me.” and he does.
    • He lets her be furious and devastated and overwhelmed because he knows what it’s like to feel powerless and I think he is genuinely sorry he contributed to her feeling this much pain. He lets her say she’s angry, he lets her blame him, he lets her grieve and doesn’t stop her when she leaves him there.
    • Not only does he not stop her, he sees the smoke from Chief’s fire and yells to her to follow it because he had followed Ludendorff. Their argument from the ballroom still isn’t resolved - she wants to just kill him and be done with it, Steve wants that to wait so they can focus on stopping the gas - but he recognizes that this is her choice and even after she’s basically just blamed an entire village’s deaths on him (and on herself) he tries to help her carry it out.
  • So after Diana’s killed Ludendorff and the war is still going on and Steve runs up to find her, he’s so visibly relieved that she’s alive and (like after Veld) goes to kiss her but backs away without her doing anything because he realizes the “stay away from me” thing has never been explicitly lifted. She might still want nothing to do with him and he respects that.
    • He does touch her a couple times after this but it’s always brief, I think it continues only because she didn’t react negatively the first time, and like they’re in the middle of a fucking war and I think Steve’s about 900% convinced that they’re all going to die so I’m gonna cut him a little slack here.
  • They have that “argument” again, where Diana says “this should have stopped, I killed him, why is this still going on” and instead of saying I told you so Steve just tries to get her to move on and help him save other people.
    • When he says “maybe it’s us! maybe we’re to blame!” (meaning not Ares) and she says that (obviously) she isn’t to blame, he doesn’t hesitate, he just says “but maybe I am.” He’s willing to put that on himself. Also, the qualifier through this scene - but maybe it’s us - is so important to me, because he’s still not saying “you’re wrong.” it’s a maybe.
    • When she refuses to go with him he’s clearly frustrated (again I’m giving him a pass here because he’s frustrated because he knows he won’t be able to save as many people without her) but he still doesn’t try to force her to go with him. He doesn’t guilt-trip her, doesn’t yell at her for not helping. He just gives that desperate shrug and says “I have to go. I’m sorry, I have to go.”
    • And when Charlie and Sam and Chief show up and ask where Diana is, all he says is “we’re on our own.” Not “she wouldn’t fucking help us” - which frankly is probably what I would have said in this situation - just that statement and nothing more.
  • In their final scene, when she’s hurt and dazed and temporarily hard of hearing, he breaks his “no touching” rule, but he breaks it because he’s helping her stand up and then because, well… even if she doesn’t, he knows he’s never going to see her again. 
    • It’s also super important to me that he doesn’t try to kiss her in this scene, because god knows he must have wanted to. He sees that she is in no shape to consent to anything like that and he doesn’t even come close to pushing it.
    • I’m not even gonna get into the “I can save today” part because I’m still too emotionally fraught
    • He says is “I wish we had more time.” before he tells her he loves her and literally runs to his death. That’s it. Nothing that could possibly make her feel guilty, nothing that could have seemed like he regretted anything. Not “I wish we hadn’t gone to the front.” Just “I wish we had more time.”
    • And he then, metaphorically and literally, gives her more time. Because he knows his clock has run out, but that doesn’t mean hers has to… So he runs and saves today and gives her his watch. Gives her time.
  • Anyway I’m seventeen thousand levels of fucked up from this movie, please feel free to add because Steve is amazing and a genuinely good, complex, respectful male character like this should be celebrated

TID appreciation week 2017

Day 6 - Favorite Scene: The Ball

She looked up at him, lips parted in bewilderment. “Know what?” she said, and Will, with a sigh of something like defeat, kissed her.

He traced slow, glancing butterfly kisses across her mouth, each as measured as the beat of a heart, each saying she was precious, irreplaceable, wanted. Tessa could no longer keep her hands at her sides. She reached to cup the back of his neck, to tangle her fingers in the dark silky waves of his hair, to feel his pulse hammering against her palms.

All the pieces inside her that had felt broken and jagged when se looked at Will these past few weeks began to knit together and heal. She felt light, as if she could float.

“Will,” she whispered against his mouth. She wanted him closer to her so badly, it was like an ache, a painful hot ache that spread out from her stomach to speed her heart and knot her hands in his hair and set her skin to burning. “Will, you need not be so careful. I will not break.”

dedicated to @miabicicletta & @nyah86. I admire you both so very much. This is my way of thanking you for the Sherlolly delights you always provide us with :D

Please, if you like it, take the time to like and/or comment on the Youtube Page of the video. You would make my day. This is what my little editor’s heart feeds on. Give it love. It gives love back :D 

But back to the matter at hand.

I’m a wreck. TFP killed me with feels. I AM NOW DEADED.

The video is simplistic. This is THE SCENE (subtly shortened) and interspersed with significant moments to explain how it would always come to this. I am not very clear, am I? Ugh. This is why I edit. It’s easier than writing.

Basically, I tried to illustrate that, yes, obviously, Molly always has been the outrageously overlooked pressure point that would ultimately turn Sherlock into an agonising mess. I kind of knew there would be something of that nature coming our way but, DAMN. I didn’t think the writers would be so in sync with my thoughts on the matter. Why am I even surprised? They wrote the whole thing after all. Come on, Mathilde.

The sound is decent but I would advise headphones and HD to maximise the experience. I hope you will enjoy it. 

Took me ages to finish it, but actually didn’t take any time at all. I knew where I wanted to go but Premiere turned out to be EXTREMELY uncooperative. Every time I would add something on the timeline or make a change, it would take one or two minutes to load so I could have a look. ===> #nightmare. This is the last time I’m using 1080p files. Good quality, yes. But GOD at what cost. If anyone has any advice on the matter, please, feel free to get in touch. I’m presumably not doing it right :D

UPDATE: Thanks to @theleftpill, the problem is officially resolved. Thank you so very very much. You saved my sanity.

Hurray for Craig Armstrong. One of my favourite film score composers. I’ve used two of his creations. One from Moulin Rouge! and the other from The Great Gatsby. Both beautiful. Moulin Rouge! is my favourite film, as a matter of fact. An actual slap in the face when I was twelve. And I cry at the end. Every time. Not kidding.

Music:

Death Scene - Moulin Rouge!
Gatsby’s Death and Portico - The Great Gatsby

Oh, dear. The music from the two death scenes of each movie. I am a cheerful person aren’t I?

Disclaimers: I don’t own the songs or the clips used in this video. This is purely a work of fiction, no profit gained.

While I have weird feelings about Jon and Sansa’s scenes from 7.01 … can I just say - this is the most open, the most honest and the most telling conversation Sansa has had in YEARS.

She had to bite her tongue, lie and say she loved Joffrey, call herself the daughter of a traitor, scheme behind the scenes with strangers in King’s Landing. She was always too scared in KL to speak freely with *anyone*. She was never able to speak her mind or have an open conversation with someone or feel like her opinion and thoughts were real or being heard. Even when people showed her kindness (ie Tyrion) she was always on her guard because she couldn’t trust anyone.

Cut to LF. Sansa spoke cryptically with LF. I don’t believe she ever truly trusted him - she just knew he was a better choice than KL, and he seemed to have saved her and helped her so she was giving him the benefit of the doubt. And why not? He was an older, powerful Lord and she was just a young girl. Of course he knows best. So when she spoke with him, she was always wary. “what do you want?” “why did you do this?” why why why.

Her “teachings” from Cersei made her stick it out with him. She thought she could use his feelings towards her against him. (the best weapon is between your legs) Cue the scene after she lies to save him. “I know what you want.” (But LF makes her believe she’s wrong and that shes not that cunning, which creates doubt in her mind that maybe she’s got it all wrong and shes not as smart as she thinks she is)

But she never says these thoughts out loud or feels safe speaking about her life while traveling with LF or in the Vale. She supposed to fly under the radar, and her opinions dont matter. No one asks, no one cares and she does what shes told. And look how that worked out for her.

Now, Sansa in Winterfell with the Boltons. She’s literally just a tapestry on the wall here. Used and abused - of course no one cares about her or wants to hear her opinion. And even if they did, she wouldn’t give it. She doesn’t like these people. It speaks a great deal about her character that she doesn’t beg for death while being tortured and abused in WF - that she keeps trying to escape. Shes still so stubborn and willful that she will escape these demons if its the last thing she does. SHE IS A STRONG MOFO.

Now - I have talked a lot about this (and gotten a right amount of hate for it on the subreddit) but Sansa was met with denial after denial while trying to rally forces for WF. From Jon, from Davos, from Lyanna, from Blackfish, from Lord Glover, etc. Literally, they all shoot her down and act like shes a stupid little girl - which probably infuriates her to no end. The reason she went and got LF and KotV is because all of these people who keep ignoring her were putting her LIFE in jeopardy, and she was not about to let that happen. Not again.

So at the end of S6 we have Jon kind of admitting he should have listened to her (and yes a lot of this could have been better if they just TALKED about it) and saying they have to trust each other. You see Sansa realize she should have - perhaps she was just stuck in this mindset she has had since her father was killed. She tried a little - no one listened - so she went back to her old tried and true ways.

Look at all of her scenes leading up to S7 - and show me a more animated and honest dialogue she has had with another character. SHE FINALLY FEELS COMFORTABLE AND FREE ENOUGH TO SPEAK HER MIND. After years of being put into a corner, she finally speaks up when she has an opinion, she tells Jon what she really thinks, she implores that he trust her. Im not saying shes right or wrong or that Jon is right or wrong - but at least shes SPEAKING. and thats a huge accomplishment for her.

Now Jon - don’t you dare go put her back in a fucking corner.

u know why i love Supergirl so much? bc i can genuinely look forward to it every week bc i know that it’s gonna give me so many of all kinds of feels, but at the same time i don’t have to be scared that my fave is gonna be killed off for shock value, or that i’m gonna be ambushed by gore or rape scenes. it’s a show that makes you feel things but without triggering you in any way, and it’s honestly my fave show of all time, every other show can just go home

Thoughts on IT

(spoiler free unless you don’t want to know ANYTHING)

- I’m about to do what I disliked about other reviews, say who I thought was best in the film….sorry other cast members!

- Richie/Finn: Oh my god, Richie was fucking hilarious. I laughed so much, along with the whole theatre. He definitely stole the show, Finn is so talented. Its been a day and I’m still laughing at his lines when they come into my head. His sense of humour has become a lot less offensive and a hell of a lot funnier.  It feels like Richie had the most screen time and some of the other Losers suffered due to it, but I just can’t imagine cutting any of his scenes or lines

- Ben/Jeremy: I love Jeremy, but I didn’t expect to enjoy his performance as much as I did. He and Richie were my favourite losers in this film (even though Eddie and Mike were my favourite in the book) and I don’t understand why more reviews aren’t calling out Jeremy for an excellent performance like they are for Finn and Sophia. His introduction scene is probably one of my three favourite in the whole movie- another hilarious scene but it had such heart behind it and Jeremy was just brilliant, as was Sophia

- Bev/Sophia was also excellent. Bev is a really enjoyable character in this movie, she is a love interest and the film avoids making her a sexy lamp or a plot device by really adding to her character and giving her some strong individual scenes.  She’s definitely romanticized but she definitely is a lot more than a love interest. There is one scene with the whole ‘everyone is in love with Bev’ schtick but it was funny enough that I didn’t mind. I think the film also avoided the damsel in distress trope pretty well. Bev is a really interesting, well defined character and Sophia did a great job!

- I don’t have much to say about the others but they were all great! Great performances from all, they just didn’t stand out as much as those three

- I really enjoyed the Losers Club and their dynamic as a team and as a friendship. I wish we had gotten just a little more scenes like the swimming one, where they are just having fun (after all, they played games in between fighting IT in the novel) but it was pretty clear that the film was cramped for time…

- the film did feel at times like it was rushing through a checklist of scenes that it had to get through, to set up the plot or characters. The film lacked some stuff (particular losers suffered from a lack of screen time, see next point) Maybe this sounds odd considering IT has such a long runtime, but I got the impression they struggled with actually narrowing it down to that time. They definitely cut a few scenes, one pretty important one that was seen in multiple trailers (I was disappointed to see it go and I’m definitely not gonna be the only one). There was one sequence where it suddenly jumped to a different person nearby and I don’t know whether they cut a scene in between or edited it poorly but I still don’t know how they got there or what they were doing or where they actually were? It’s hard to explain without spoiling but yeah, that scene confused me

- Stan and Mike, particularly Mike, definitely didn’t get enough screen time. Stan probably had more actual screen time then Ben but Ben just felt more present, since he had more importance in the story and an important relationship with Bev. Stan was one of the original 4 losers but he had the least dialogue out of all of them and its a shame, Wyatt is really talented and I would have liked to have seen more. I can tell Stan was the victim of a few cut scenes. I also feel pretty sorry for poor Chosen as Mike, who was under-utilized and just…. joined the losers. There was no scene of him getting to know them, no bonding scene for the whole seven. He just joined the Losers and went with them to kill IT. He did have his own character arch, which I enjoyed but he still had the least screen time, which is unfortunate, especially considering how important he is in the sequel

- As for the horror, I wasn’t scared during the trailers and I wasn’t scared during the film (horror films just never feel real enough to genuinely scare me) The audience members did react to the film positively, to the jokes and to the scares. Personally, I thought the horror was a little lazy because (KIND OF SPOILER) nearly every scare was a jump-scare. It was effective but I guess I just expected more. My favourite scary scenes included the first group trip to Neibolt Trip (probably another one of my favourite overall scenes) and the projector scene

- As for the couples, I’m trying not to be biased here but I think people who exclusively ship Bill/Bev after the trailers might just be swayed by Benverly who have some brilliant scenes, their dynamic is great and I can think of one small, hilarious moment they shared which really stood out. They didn’t have any moments in the trailer but they had plenty in the film. A combination of the two really talented actors and a great dynamic made it the superior couple in my mind (then again, I always preferred it to Bill/Bev. To be fair, they had a good dynamic and Jaeden is obviously also very talented! I’m not a fan of the love triangle in media but I could stomach this one.

As for my other IT ship, Reddie did not disappoint. The banter that we saw in the MTV grey water scene was a gift that kept on giving. We also saw a couple moments which showed the genuine closeness between them (one adorable shot made me want to write a fluffy AU immediately, certain scenes in Neibolt Street made me feel very angsty). I don’t mean to overhype this, they definitely aren’t ‘canon’ and I don’t believe their scenes become so overt it nears queerbaiting, just a well written dynamic which is pretty damn shippable. Also Richie/Bill and Richie/Stan shippers will have some moments to enjoy!

- The movie strays from the book quite a lot, I personally didn’t mind but if you’re a book purist then prepare yourself

- I know I did mention a few negative things but overall I really enjoyed the film! I recommend it completely, I had a great time and I can’t wait for everyone else to see it

DEMONS!!!

Well these just keep getting better and better! Sorry for getting my theory out so late today, Thursdays are my insane days at university, I only just got a chance to sit down and watch chapter 3. And what a chapter! Without further ado, I’ll jump right in. 

  • Right away, it is very obvious that Celine has a long history with both Damien and the Colonel. The Colonel acts more vulnerable with her than any other person we’ve seen so far. He even says that he “trusts Celine with all his heart,” and he stutters after saying that. He is ALWAYS confident, but it is clear that Celine is capable of knocking him off guard. 
    • Also, the use of the line “I trust Celine with all my heart.” is interesting. That’s not something you say about a close friend. That’s not even something you say about a family member. That is something you say about someone you have deep feelings for, romantic feelings. Remember this picture?
    • Mark and Celine are being very friendly in it. Damien and the Colonel, not so much. While Damien seems mostly just worried, the Colonel’s body language and stance make him appear very angry. We know he and Mark had a major falling out, Damien even went so far as to say that the Colonel hated him. Nothing like a little love triangle to break up a friendship.
  • And then there’s the Mayor. Celine calls him Damien, which we’ve only seen the Colonel do before. Everyone else in the story calls him Mr. Mayor, or just the Mayor. The nature of their conversations also suggests a long history. I think its safe to say that she’s known Mark for as long as Damien and the Colonel have, and that they have all known each other since they were young. She also states that she’s “never been very comfortable in this house,” implying in the same way the Colonel did in yesterday’s episode that she’s familiar with it
    • It is also interesting that Damien seems surprised at her knowledge of the occult and arcane arts, thinking she’s not the type to “get mixed up in all this.” That language implies that he also doesn’t put much stock in the unseen. This is further supported by Celine’s insistence that there’s more to the world than he knows. 
    • He also seems to want to protect her; asking if she’s alright, telling her to be careful, wanting to stay with her to protect her. It’s worth noting that Celine bites back against his desire to stay inside with her. “I don’t need help, especially from you!” This is just speculation, but if he tried to intervene and fix things back when Mark and the Colonel were fighting, but only ended up making things worse, her reluctance to accept his help would make a lot of sense. One thing’s for sure, these four friends’ seemingly tight bonds have gone under a lot of strain. 
  • As for Celine herself, she’s her own little ball of mystery. First off, why did she come to the manor today? The Butler, while he appears to know her, says that she’s come “at a most inconvenient time.” Meaning that he wasn’t expecting her, which seems unusual for him. She is clearly sensitive to the occult, and I don’t mean just because she’s been trained. Based on her conversation with Damien, we can gather that the arcane arts are a new thing in her life, but she remarks that she’s “Never felt very comfortable in this house.” So she has always been sensitive to the other side. And there has always been something off about that house. This is further evidenced by the Groundskeeper George and his reluctance to set foot in “that mad house.” 
    • As a side note, “Celine” is a latin name that means “heaven.” “Selene” is a name that means “brightness,” and is a greek deity of the moon. So Teamiplier has taken care in connecting her to the powers beyond. 
    • Speaking of the powers beyond, her seance was bizarre. While you were apparently there to “commune with the dead,” you see only events from the past, all surrounding the Colonel, and then one event from the future. It is this future event makes you pull out, presumably because you did not recognize it. When Celine sees your drawing, she says that “this answers nothing.” If she grew up around the house, or at least is familiar with it, then she likely recognized that it was George, and as she is already aware of him and does not suspect him, this is why she insists that you “go back” into the seance. But, before we can, we are interrupted. Despite everyone’s protests, Celine insists that she is not done. 
  • Our talk with George is short, but enlightening. He seems a harmless enough fellow, and he and the Chef apparently have a good friendship, but it’s his comments about the house that have my attention, as they no doubt have everyone’s. 
  • The first thing that caught my eye is that he says “murdered” and there’s…no lightning. There’s been more lightning than usual this episode as Celine tries to get them to stop saying the word “murder.” But George says it, without concern or consequence. In fact, he says everything without concern. He seems to worry about nothing but keeping the grounds. Until the Detective says that they’re going inside; then George’s entire demeanor changes. He becomes serious, and speaks to the Detective like he’s capable of putting him in his place, but just couldn’t be bothered to before. He says it’s been 15 years since going into the house, and he’s not going to go in now. 
    • What strikes me about this is that he is the only one who hasn’t been in the house, and he’s also the only one who can speak freely without lightning accenting his sentences. That makes me think that whatever is causing the lightning is INSIDE THE HOUSE. And whatever it is, George is at least somewhat aware of it. He would only go back into that house for one reason….
    • Which of course immediately occurs. There is DEFINITELY something wrong with that house. And it’s been growing steadily stronger this whole time. Which brings me to my final major conclusion about today. 

Celine has become possessed by whatever force is present in the house. The same force that will eventually become Darkiplier. A force I happen to think is, based on the Jim News segment of today, some sort of demon. While I find those segments hilarious, there is some substance to them. Tiny clues that point to whatever’s going on in this manor. Speaking of what’s going on in the manor, I think this is what happened. 

  • Celine has always been connected to the spiritual world, but recently underwent training to better understand and interact with it. While training is good, she seems to be a novice, based on Damien’s surprise at her involvement in such practices. And a novice would be no match for the force that is at work here. When she opens a channel to the spirit world in the seance, she is leaving herself vulnerable to the demon’s possession. Some evidence for this: 

Celine has been acting decently normal until this moment, when she says “Now that my eyes are opened, something tells me that there are dark forces surrounding this manor.” She then begins the seance:

She doesn’t open herself up to the dark forces in this manor until this moment, when she begins to channel the spirit world to help you see the past, and then the future. Her eyes remain closed, and she still seems intent on helping find out the truth. Until here:

Just before you go into your vision, she opens her eyes and looks up at you. “Keep your enemies close…” she says, in a deep voice. Her face is twisted into a creepy grin, that we see again in the ending scene. The demon has entered her, and it is at this moment that things begin to go wrong. Before the seance, she was calm. Afterwards, she is much more volatile. Yelling at you, her friends…I don’t think she realizes that she’s been possessed yet, but it’s hard to ignore that kind of negative influence on you (like how wearing a horcrux brings out the worst aspects of your personality). 

But if the demon that is behind all of this is in fact Darkiplier, what about our previous theories about the Mayor? It’s hard to ignore the similarities. Well, this is my theory: Damien does not resemble Darkiplier. Darkiplier resembles Damien. Now, this is getting slightly into head cannon territory, but bear with me. I’ve tried to base my ideas about how Darkiplier works off of what we’e canonically seen as much as possible. I’ll briefly summarize here, but if you want a more in depth explanation of how I think Dark works, you can read it here: https://archiveofourown.org/works/11149080/chapters/24875811 (It’s only 3 short chapters, it’s about Markiplier TV mostly).

Basically, I don’t think Darkiplier is directly connected to Markiplier. I think that Dark is a force that can take many forms, and that it choses Markiplier to imitate because of the influence Mark has over his community. While Mark uses this power for good, an evil force could use it in horrible ways. This is based on what Mark said in his Feb 2017 charity stream about Dark existing in another world, bleeding into this one, and admiring what Mark has accomplished. To me, that says that he wants that kind of recognition, but doesn’t have it in his natural state. Anyway, back to Who Killed Markiplier: I think that the entity of Dark was residing in this house, and then it possesses Celine here in this scene. As I’ve said and as we’ve seen, Damien cares very deeply for Celine. I don’t know if it’s a romantic feeling or just a deep friendship, but as others have pointed out, when she arrives, your safety takes a backseat. He still cares about you, but she is now the most important person in the room. 

  • I think that Damien offered himself to the Dark entity in Celine’s place. Damien is a powerful man; he is a leader and he is in a position of authority. That would appeal to this creature more than Celine would, so it takes that offer, leaving Celine’s body and possessing Damien instead. The reason that Darkiplier and Damien share so many mannerisms is that old aspects of Damien’s personality are still visible in the Darkiplier persona. Darkiplier then lurked around Markiplier’s channel, still seeing the entertainment industry as the best way to reach mass amounts of people. My previous conflict with the timeline not matching the real world origin of Darkiplier could easily be explained away by whatever dimension Dark is from existing on a different time scale, or outside of time altogether. This very well could be the origin of Darkiplier: A demon that possessed an innocent man who only wanted to protect his friends.

Whew! That was easily the longest I’ve spent on one of these (almost 2 hours). Thank you for reading, and as always, let me know what you think! I’m aware I didn’t cover my #Markiplier Lives angle in this post, I’m going to address this episode’s evidence for that in another one. This one has gone on long enough. Until the next theory!

rosvolio literally gave me a twenty course meal plus desert. not only did we get the cape scene and forced cuddling to share body heat trope, we got the motel with one bed trope (or in their case an inn) we got rosaline cHECKING BENVOLIO OUT, and the QUOTES we got tonight y'all

“we trust each other”

“i feel responsible for you, and i’ve never been responsible for someone before”

“who knew my last friend would be a harpy capulet?”

“i won’t let them kill you. i’ll tell them that you’re innocent… and kind.”

i have never been fed so damn well in my life

Robert Week Day 6: Best scene

My American Satan Review

So I will place any spoilers below the read more line for those that have either already seen the film or don’t plan on seeing it. 

I have been waiting for this movie to come out since it was announced. Clearly, I am a bit bias by the fact that I’m a huge Black Veil Brides fan, but I really was interested in the plot. I went and saw the film last night (in cosplay), and I have to say I enjoyed every second of it. It’s got its faults, and it’s clearly and indie film but it’s one of the best indie films I’ve ever seen. 

I’ve decided to make a list of the pros and cons of the movie, so here we go.  

Pros

  • The storyline is absolutely incredible. There is so much thought put into even the smallest of details. It’s one of those films where each time you watch it you pick up another little detail. The concept of rock bands/musicians making deals with Satan is a very popular one and it’s honestly shocking this movie hasn’t been made before. It follows the story of Job where the devil and God fight it out over who Job will ultimately follow.  Andy’s character ‘Johnny’ is clearly based off Job. Clearly it also follos the story of Faust (aka why the main character is Johnny Faust) who makes a deal with the devil in exchange for knowledge and success. 
  • There are actually plot twists that I didn’t see coming (see spoilers) 
  • Booboo Stewart  is a gorgeous man.. like seriously 
  • I like that there are clearly things that happen or aspects of the film that are based off of Andy’s actual experiences moving out to Hollywood 
  • There are some really funny parts to the film,  but also some VERY dark parts. 
  • Ben Bruce is actually an incredible actor 
  • My expectations for Andy’s acting weren’t too high and there were some parts where it  was kind of poor but overall he channeled the character and the character’s emotions very well
  • The ending leaves open the possibility that the story isn’t over  
  • Remington was a PERFECT choice for vocals, the soundtrack and songs made for the movie are amazing. Seriously if you watch it the song ‘Let Him Burn’  gets a whole new meaning
  • Since there are actual musicians in the film, it really does paint a very accurate picture of what the life of a rock star is really like. The film doesn’t shy away from the pretty horrific side of it. 
  • Mr. Capricorn plays an amazing devil holy shit, he was  the perfect choice
  • The casting was done very well, everyone’s character is very believable 

Cons

  • There is WAY to much story packed into two hours. The film follows the band from their start then over their 2 years rise to fame. It would often times get confusing as to how much time had passed. There weren’t dates included in different scenes so it was hard to follow the progression. Especially when it came to the drugs, rehab, court dates, etc. It didn’t feel like two years had passed.
  • There were some major plot holes where it felt like things were left out. For instance (minor spoiler) the band knows automatically that Mr. Capricorn is the devil right after meeting him. To me, it would take a bit more than just one talk with someone to go from not believing in the devil to thinking that you’re sitting with him. 
  • Gretchen’s character and Johnny’s mom weren’t that good
  • There were some parts that were not believable, won’t get into them but some things would happen and I would go “yeah right” 
  • The news interviews were kind of cheesy 
  • Johnny’s rehab scene was incredibly unbelievable (more in spoilers) 

All in all, though the film was very well done. The acting was, for the most part, good and the movie LOOKED good. I would recommend it if you’re into the emo/rock/metal scene or like Asking Alexandria/Black Veil Brides. It’s not so much horror/thriller but darker. I would also recommend it if you like films with deeply religious themes or important lessons.The film makes you think which I like. My mom went to see it with me (she also liked it) and we’ve both spent the whole day just going over parts of the plot.  I liked that the ending isn’t exactly ‘happy ever after’ as well. And what really won me over was just the amazing plot and writing. I plan on maybe even seeing it again and I’m for sure going to buy it when it comes out on DVD. I do feel like if this film was done by a major movie company it would become a cult classic. 

I’m giving the film two ratings before I go into spoilers. One from the perspective on an indie film and one for overall.  

Overall:  3.5/5
Indie: 4.25/5

‘That was an awesome red carpet. Did you do it?’

That Malec’s scene at the end of 2x10.

When Alec went outside the institute and still couldn’t find Magnus he was so devasted. You can see him starting to panic really hard. Then fortunately Magnus came and Alec pulled him into his arms so hard. He was so relieved to see him alive and okay. He was panting so hard. It broke my heart. And then he started to talk about how he never was that scared. He said that he was terrified. And the way he said that “Magnus…” I remembered how casts told us that Matthew’s acting will broke our hearts and I thought that it will be in sad way. After Alec’s conversation with Aldertree, that “now I know that shadowhunters can’t be with downwolders” or something like that I started to get worried. Like I was SO worried that he is going to say to Magnus that they can’t be together, no matter what they feel, because he can’t take that non-stop fear. That he is so happy that he is alive and not hurt, but they have to stop their relationship. But then Alec said “I love you” and I don’t think I ever loved some character or scene more. The way Magnus had to take a moment to process that Alec really told him that. That he really felt the same way he did. Their kiss was full of emotions and it was beautiful. But that second hug, that is what killed me for good. They just had to feel each other, know that they are safe. Alec looked like he was about 3 seconds away from crying on Magnus shoulder. 

This scene was one of the best I ever seen on TV, and I still don’ t understand how could be Matt and Harry so amazing and talented actors. They understand their characters so much and literally bring them their soul. 

It kinda kills me how attentive and caring RDJ is with Chris Evans because Chris has some serious anxiety issues and Robert was the one who encouraged him to be Cap when he wasn’t sure (which he is now happy to say was the best decision he’s ever made in his life), Robert goes out of his way to make sure Chris feels comfortable, he even goes so far as to help with Chris’ unofficial physical therapy when he hurt his arm shooting the helicopter scene–he kind of really takes care of him in a big way 

And that whole “asking about allergies before inviting fellow actors to dinner”. I mean, wow! 

RDJ in general seems to take care of people a lot, he’s been in the industry from childhood and knows how to play a crowd but obviously with actors who didn’t have as much excessive exposure to the media, he helps them out, really does his best to be generous. And he’s so affectionate, he likes to kiss and hug and generally be all over the people he likes, he doesn’t feel the need to dial down that open physical affection, it’s honestly wonderful to see him interacting with people the way he does

anonymous asked:

Todoroki and Katsuki with a s/o that is obsessed otomes like mystic messenger, talks about how handsome and perfect are the boys in her games, very expresive with the scenes (like laughing, get embarrased or cry, even would be funny if she screams in medium of the class "DONT BREAK UP WITH ME, I LOVE YOU!" 😂) and unconsciously choose characters similar to them? :3 HC's please :D

This idea is killing me. I referred to MM bc it’s the only one I got shortly in contact with so yeah, hope you will like it and that this was okay.


Todoroki Shouto

• He loves to see his lover being passionate about their likings and hobbies but this makes him feel a little bit weird – it was some kind of mix of mild confusion bc well, they are basically fangirling about other guys in his presence but they are fictional so…? In the end he decides to push it away with a small smile

• When Todoroki finds his partner screeching and yelping, wailing and laughing and blushing he cant help but to huff out a small laugh – the sight is pure amusement on his side and he just finds their reactions utterly adorable. But he wonders how exactly a game can make people feel so hardly with it

• Considering that the game is quite time-consuming that you even have to go online in the middle of the night and the couple sometimes sleeping in each other rooms even if it wasnt allowed, the male groans and tells them to sleep with a rough and tired voice, pulling their figure towards his’

• But all in all he wouldnt mind too much about it due to the fact that he loved seeing his partner having fun. He is actually thinking about trying out the game as well bc… his signif seems to really like it and apparently it’s quite popular among the class these days ? Think about how he is blushing in the end while he plays it omfg. His favourite is Jumin at first but then nope, Seven is the man.

• Can you see his kicked puppy face when one of them dumps him? CUZ I CAN. „I’m sure he really likes me. Why would he try to break up with me?” 

I didnt expect Seven to be such a deep character, I really liked his story.“


Bakugou Katsuki

• Clearly with underline: Irritation and a not-understanding partner. What the fuck was so great about this stupid korean game with some random pretty boys on the screen ? He heard about it obviously, everyone talked about it fucking everywhere and now his lover is playing this shit as well? Lord, save them

• Is this his punishment for being such a bitch. Bakugou would see their tired face bc they actually put on an alarm for this to not miss a chat – scolding them to take care of themselves better and to put MM aside at least to REST with his usual brash tone ofc, dont expect any different behaviour of this boy

• Sure, it annoyed him but he isnt that dick of a signif not to listen to the things that the other enjoyed and allows this constant but limited happiness to take them over, listening to it while eating or drinking something, anything. Ashe-blonde isnt bored by it, he just doesnt wanna leave stupid comments

• Will sometimes say in between while watching them play, like „This guy looks half okay” or „What the fuck who would ever get such a shitty haircut” etc.

• D-E-F-I-N-I-T-E-L-Y not jealous about someone who isnt even real in the first place. Oh what a joke, unfortunately he fucking is and also feels god damn stupid about it. Never, ever admits it but ofc his love would catch it and tease him about it, causing him to explode. Forever in denial teenie. Yet their whole-hearted laugh that follows and that that game brought him from time to time was something he was really fond of – once more not gonna voicing it out.

The real deal is way fucking better anyways.“ (referring to himself)

Rated R for Ridiculously Fluffy! -- [7/7/2016]: Okay wow I didn't expect this thing to hit 4k views--and I REALLY didn't expect it to get more than 10 likes ...

I actually missed the anniversary for this and I feel… slightly ashamed of that?

The year just kind of flew by for it–but I still remember all the long hours I put into making this video to try and help give an idea of what this AU was about.
Sadly, I think it flopped a bit even if the people who love it tell me that it didn’t–so a major project of mine that I’ve been doing in private is… well–

I’ve been remaking this to be a bit better drawn. At first, I was going to PAINT every single scene… which, please don’t misunderstand, I can do! And if I did, it might look amazing? It’s still kind of up in the air if I’m going to transform the newer sketches into small paintings or not–
Just know that this video will be seeing a remaster as well as the cover for the comic, because I feel like it deserves it!

EDIT: 
This video is important because it’s basically the ENTIRE MF comic in a nutshell… only with a lot of important bits cut out, of course!

The Queen's Justice | Another Jonerys rant

I thought I couldn’t be more overwhelmed by this ship after the cave scene, but then 😍😍😍…the epic boat scene came along, and I’m spoiled for life! I literally can’t stop thinking about it, and that’s a pretty big deal for me considering that I only got onto the ship after the ‘The Spoils for War’.

One major reason why I never even considered Jon and Dany coming together, aside from the fact that my sole focus would always be the bigger mysteries and whether or not my favorite characters would survive was, admittedly, the incest. Even after knowing the thing about incest and GoT, the creepy Cersei/Jaime relationship was off putting enough for me to feel physically sick at the thought of any more of it, especially with two of my favorite characters. So yes, even though I was interested in seeing them team up and take on the Night King together, I was not necessarily invested in them being romantically involved, in fact the opposite of invested, I was opposed to them getting romantically involved.

But then boom! I’m on the ship, and I’m on it for life! So since I can’t stop thinking about it anyway, I’m going to endlessly write about them until the next week’s episode, because I gotta do what I gotta do man🤷🏻 Anyway, the Big Meeting, right as they met and the way Jon looked at her the first time, I knew that meant something.

At the same time, it was at that moment that the distance between the two characters truly struck me (and I loved the way their first meeting was shot, laying stress on the distance between them which was slowly covered until they were finally together!).

Not only do these two embody their familial conflicts, they are opposing in so many other ways as well. She’s focused on her enemies aka the South, while Jon Snow is consumed with the Night King aka the North. They are not just strangers, they’re strangers with seemingly no common ground, they’re strangers so distant that they are more likely to be hostile. She hates his father for helping Robert usurp her family’s rightful crown, while he obviously resents her father for killing his own family members.

The distance was just so vast I could barely comprehend it all. And I think it was then that my interest in this ship started building, because where would they go from here? If this is indeed to be canon, how would they get to that point?

And then there were the gradually softening scenes between them, when Dany talks about losing her brothers and allows Jon to mine the much-needed dragon glass. That would have been it. He could have thanked her and gone on his way. But he stops, and he looks back, (while she’s not looking at him! Idk but the whole looking at someone when they’re looking away just gets me too mushy for words 😍💖😂),

and his tone is just so pleading when he says, “So you believe me then, about the Night King and the Army of the Dead?”, like it’s important to him that she believes him. She just handed him the dragonglass along with any needed resources, but our boy Jon wants to know whether she actually trusted him. Why does Jon have to be so earnestly cute at times man! 😂

But apart from Jon’s neverending cuteness, what I took away from that scene was how they were gradually moving closer (not just physically).

Before, during the courtroom scene, Jon looked at her as woman of nobility, who’s laying claim to a kingdom as if it’s a game, uncaring of the people living in it, far above their struggles and simply interested in wearing an undeserved crown. He saw a proud woman, who demanded what she wanted solely because she felt she had a right to it, (and Dany was definitely not being anything less than regal in that scene with the harsh tone and the constant ‘bend the knee’).

It was obvious in his tone, in his words, in the way he looked at her (after that first look!):

that this was a woman barely different from Cersei; he could hope to get nothing from her, which is why he had admitted defeat so easily.

But when she gives him the dragonglass, there’s a shift. You can see it in his eyes. He didn’t expect this. He looks at her as if he’s suddenly seeing her in a new light, like he can’t believe she would give him something without it benefiting her in any way whatsoever. And that’s obvious in this look he gives her.

Dany, for her part, may be beginning to realize she had been unreasonably harsh to him, believing him to be an usurper, just like his father. She had, in fact, been guilty of the very crime she had warned him against. Judging the son by the crimes of his father. She looked at this man, this self-declared King in the North, and what she saw was a man no different than Cersei (ironic! 😂), taking advantage of the war plagued Kingdoms, to take what was rightfully hers simply because there was no one to stop him.

But as Ser Davos spoke, she realized that she had judged him wrongly, and even later, while speaking to Tyrion, she understood that this was not a man hungry for power, this was a man dedicated to a cause, a man who cared for the survival of his people above his own, putting himself at risk for them, and it was this, this that made her give him the dragonglass even though she didn’t believe him.

This scene managed to convey so much to me (especially since I rewatched it!) regarding how two people worlds apart could begin to come closer together, by realizing they had much more in common than they had previously assumed.

And of course, the obvious parallels of:

echoed well in this scene because both of them started off by judging the other by their father’s actions.

And I felt this was important, because once they realized this and disregarded their prejudices, they moved closer to understanding the other, and to me, the gradual journey of realization, is the kind of ship I would die for!

So yes, Jonerys may seem rushed, but I feel the buildup to it has been really interesting to watch. How two strangers span this huge distance between them and come to know, trust and love each other, my God!

The beauty of this ship is going to kill me, I know it!

DAY 3374

Malta                   June 23/24,  2017              Fri/Sat 1:33 AM local time 






Birthday - EF - Agnes James & Ef Donna Lisch     Sat, June 24 . … wishing the very best to our Ef and giving them the love of all for a prosperous year and years to come …




A memory picture sent and put out on the platform that goes by the name of Twitter, and there are queries as to what the occasion was and who and when and how ..

This is the showing of my first film ‘Saat Hindustani’ at a private theatre behind what used to be a recording theatre at Tardeo, Mumbai ..

The recording theatre at Tardeo, was a small almost insignificant destination on the main road as you turn left at Haji Ali crossing, coming from Juhu, but it was the most prized and important destination for all the illustrious stars and music directors of the time  ; Shankar-Jaikishen, and all the other stalwarts of the time, C Ramchandra, Naushad, OP Nayyar .. then Kalyanj-Anandji, Laxmikant-Pyarelal, SD Burman, RD Burman ..et all .. and the recording was done on film tape, the model at the time .. 

It was a destination where every one that mattered came to  .. we strugglers used to sit on the road outside and opposite the theatre, and watch all the greats come by, Lata ji, Rafi Saheb, Mukesh ji, Asha ji and all the stars - Shammi Kapoor, Shashi Kapoor .. and it used to be my dream to get a moment to just enter those hallowed portals .. it was a very limited spaced small area, but crammed with musicians .. a studio where some of the greatest songs of the times and time immemorial were recorded .. on occasion when I would sneak in and get caught, would be thrown out unceremoniously .. embarrassed and humiliated, but still hungry for the moment to be witness ever to those historic recording moments ..

It did happen .. gradually .. as is in the Industry .. the norm being your recognition factor .. as and when it improved, your entires and the level of interest in your presence improved .. and then one day you actually get to record there .. the ‘My name is Anthony Gonzalves’ song and the ‘whole country of the system’ bit done there .. time and fate changes so rapidly .. takes you up and brings you down too ..

BUT we were talking about the picture ..

So behind this rather simple looking structure was an even more ordinary, badly kept preview theatre, where KA Abbas, the Producer Director of many of his films would hold his first trials .. ‘Saat Hindustani’ was one of them, and I had mentioned earlier, he would always call Meena Ji, Meena Kumari ji to his first trial .. this picture is of that occasion ..

The others in the picture are to my left, Pakki, Mehmood bhaijaan’s son from his first wife, who was Meena ji sister .. then Jalal Agha, actor and dear friend co star of Saat Hindustani, son of that famous comedian Agha .. Jalal was also instrumental in giving me my first voice over job .. a voice over for an Add., on Horlicks .. the dialogue was ‘har roz Horlicks peegiye’ etc .. I got Rs 50/- for that which helped me to take a taxi into Filmistan Studio, to meet Manoj Kumar ji for a prospect in a film .. that story has also been repeated and narrated many times .. I used to take the local train, that is all I could afford, to Filmistan Studios in the suburbs, from Marine Drive where I was staying with a close family friend .. I would get off at the station and walk to the studio and get rejected from entering by the guards at the gates .. did this for several days .. then saw that a taxi would get automatic attention and the gates would open .. seeing this as an opportunity, I went to the suburb in the local train, but from the station to the studio took a taxi with my Rs 50/- earned and HURRAH .. the taxi was not stopped .. went in to discover that Manoj ji’s shooting had finished .. and I could not meet him ..

One of my many disappointments of the days ..

So back to the picture .. yes .. Meena ji  .. was a soft spoken gentle lady, always appreciative of the work done by new comers .. was extremely kind to me at the trial and ever since always most encouraging when ever I got a chance to meet her .. she sat at the premier of ‘Reshma aur Shera’ just ahead of my seat and was so moved by that scene when I a dumb villager, come to Waheeda ji’s village to plead guilty for killing her relative, saying in dumb terms that I was forced into the kill and not out of my wish .. she kept speaking loudly in the hall ..’arre bechaara’ ..’arre aisa kyun kar rahen hain iske saath’ .. it was most touching for her to feel this way .. Meena Kumari .. her greatness lay in her immense talent and humaneness .. no one, not any one, ever spoke dialogues the way she did .. no one .. not anyone to date .. and perhaps never will .. a prodigious natural talent, a poetess, a most endearing personality and what a performer .. innumerable scenes from so many films come to mind .. but the one for me that stays permanently is that scene from ‘Sahib Biwi aur Ghulam’ of Guru Dutt, where she is trying to persuade her husband Rehman, another prolific actor, from going for the night to a kotha .. and the song .. ‘na jao saiyaan, chudha ke baiyaan ..’ .. heart wrenching expressions ! and what a film .. 

A day has gone by .. but never enough to be able to recollect the times of yore .. of times spent in great expectations for the future .. of hope and desire .. of wanting to be jobbed .. of wanting to get film and opportunity to work in one somehow ..of getting up each morning and travelling from office to office in search of work .. of promises made by many only to be rejected later by them .. to watch the world go by and wonder if ever time would come by hold my hand and show me favour ..
