this was a really cool scene because i say so

Benedict Cumberbatch: “Sometimes when you do fight scenes you think, ‘Oh, I’ll be hit in the face,’ because people get carried away with their vanity and want to look too cool to care, but we were all really careful with each other. Mads [Mikkelsen] and I have a really epic brawl — a week shoot, lots of rehearsal — and he was just delightful. He’s a dancer and a gymnast so he knows how to plant the moves. He was always saying, ‘Are you okay?’ When you’ve got that level of mutual consideration you form a family very quickly.”

On a happy note, what are some of your favorite things about Lance? :3

oh boy 

  • he loves mermaids
  • THE SQUEAL WHEN HE SAYS “MERMAIDS!!!” YOU KNOW THE ONE

  • sound effects
  • flirts with aliens at any given time, at all, like, me too??????
  • “hasta la later, keith” *dances aggressively*
  • helped pidge find money so she could buy a game she was excited about and also turned into a dolphin-human hybrid to do so. he loves her so much i want to die 
  • related: he’s probably the best older brother i bet he took his younger siblings to the beach and stayed w them all day and played with them and made sand castles and sand mermaids with them
  • literally puts his life in danger regularly to save people ???  the explosion and air vacuum thingie scenes come to mind. god he’s so good
  • that being said he can be kinda selfish (literally manipulated hunk into leaving his lion and coming w him to investigate mermaids just bc he likes mermaids) and i love that about him, i love that he’s not a perfect good boy, i wish the fandom would stop ignoring this tbh tbh
  • the entire scene in s2 where he was talking abt their plan and like, did amazing imitations. shook his butt. dabbed. literally morphed into a strange galra-humanoid thing for the sake of The Drama™
  • “that’s the tagline from like six of my favourite movies” lance is a big nerd confirmed
  • his fucking pickup lines are so funny? they’re so bad they’re good. i’d fall for them lance. i’d fall for them
  • takes the time to explain stuff when keith doesnt understand, like, they could have easily just made him make fun of keith for not getting the “vol” “tron” thing but he instead explains it

  • “is…that a cow” “mmhmmm” 
  • arguably the only paladin with any semblance of fashion sense
  • AND ON THAT NOTE HE’S A MALE CHARACTER WHO’S SHOWN TO LOVE SKINCARE UNABASHEDLY and that’s not something you ever see in media and as a cosmetician IT’S REALLY COOL BECAUSE NOW LITTLE BOYS WILL WATCH THIS AND SAY “hey lance is cool and he takes care of his skin maybe i should too!!!” like YES LANCE THANK YOU FOR DESTROYING TOXIC MASCULINITY

i coudl go on but for your sake i will stop

Hey there! I’m happy to tell you that THERE ARE COUNTLESS SAIAKA/SAIEDE MOMENTS IN THE GAME!!// Although I think it’s usually saihara>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>><<<<<<akamatsu in the main game(and we all know the reason why right: Hint: what happens in chapter 1) 

in the omake mode kaede invites shuuichi to her piano concert and she gives him a ticket, he says he would love to see kaede play the piano and she says wait you’re coming to see me, not just to listen to the piano? and blushes and he says yes? Is that strange? I would also like to listen to you play too.. he also asks what’d be right to wear are school uniforms okay and shes says yes anyway she ends with saying there are lots of songs I want to play to you saihara-kun they’re just really cute and pure aren’t they dating??? I think they are?? isn’t that something like a date??

Also she keeps telling him she’d like to show him to her family?? in the bonus modes in the game I found that adorable.. they’re really happy when they’re talking together there Ahh there’s also the love hotel bit and their one is super pure.. that one is about the only (romantic) one where saihara is actively engaging, he leads in the end.. in the other ones he’s relatively just going along with the flow

In the main game there’s chapter 1 for sure. They stick around together and there are so many cute moments where kaede makes the guy blush. He kind of reacts and blushes around her every single time whenever there’s a chance to;; Chapter 1 throws in a whole ton of cute situations between them. For example, there are many saiaka fanarts being drawn about this one part in ch.1 where they’re investigating the school together, and kaede finds an adult video in the shelves by mistake.. she freaks out and saihara comes right to her and asks if she’s found something important, and she freaks out even more: This moment right here. Um.. I’ll add really broad translations for it from memory (pardon me if it’s not 100% accurate!) 

..what kind of film is that?

..what’s wrong? Did you find something?

I, I said, this is really nothing to be concerned of!

The reactions that you’re showing…

But mustn’t that mean you’ve seen something important from it !?

S, Stop, wait! D, don’t come any closer-!

(after finding what the video’s contents were)

Really.. I told you so.

…le, let’s search somewhere else, shall we.

There is a reason why saiaka is my favorite ship. I usually go along with the ships that make sense in terms of the story and are implied and I say saihara definitely likes kaede a whole LOT (romantic or not, but it does suggest he has strong feelings for her and I dare say it’s really likely he’s had a crush on her)

The reason why he took off his cap after the first chapter is because what kaede said to him too. Take a look at this scene:

“and, it’s a waste to have your hat on? Saihara-kun… you look so much better with your hats off. (the word here is “kakkoii” so I guess it means she thinks he looks more cool? or handsome with the caps off??// that’s sweet)”

“W,what.. was that(phrase)…”

There are plenty, plenty more. I really suggest you either play the game or at least watch chapter 1??? There is no wonder that this ship has gotten really popular. There are cute moments, heartbreaking moments, really sweet stuff and also the pain. I still can’t get over it hhaha;; To be fair, maybe you could still call all this friendship, it could happen between friends too, but.. this next bit that I wanna show, I think that’s something that could imply the feelings saihara’s had that’s more than just friendship?

Considering how his personality is (a bit of an introvert and bit awkward around girls and a blushy mess sometimes) he’s being.. pretty direct about his feelings towards her here. I brought some screenshots of this one specific moment where he doesn’t deny it when somebody asks him if he liked akamatsu.

That one, I’ll place beneath the cut, because it might-no, would-have spoilers.

anonymous asked:

Seven years since show ended... how the hell fma fandom is still alive!?? I wish my current fandom were this strong. Why do you think this happens?

it really is amazing, isn’t it dear anon? i think it’s mostly because of 4 reasons:

1. FMA’S STORY. tbh if you ask any anime fan who’s watched fma what their favorite animes were, fma would would most likely be near the top of that list. its writing is just so so amazing and its characters are so well-written. there are so many symbolisms and metaphors and parallels and that makes it such a memorable anime. the story is so intense that it’s rly easy to get into it and you don’t forget that experience of watching it for the first time. the anime community has pretty much agreed that fma is one of if not THE BEST anime out there story-wise and character-wise. it’s so popular in the western AND japanese fandoms and that draws new people in to watch it.

2. New fans. like i said in the last point, there are so many new people coming into the anime community every day. fma is one of the first animes that people usually watch, and it’s because of how recognized it is as “one of the greatest animes out there.” it ranks #2 on myanimelist !!! when people are new to anime and they see that, it makes them want to start watching it, and new people are joining the fandom every day. they get invested just like the rest of us, and they want to see more content and create content. it’s a cycle that keeps going on and on when old fans die out and new ones come in.

3. No complete ending. one of the amazing things about fmab’s and the manga’s ending is that there technically is none. it gives a happy ending and a brief synopsis of what the characters are doing years after the promised day, but it still leaves SO MUCH up for interpretation, and that’s where fans and their creative abilities come in. there is so much you can do with fmab’s story and its after-ending in terms of writing fanfics and comics. there’s so much space open enough for fans to create their own headcanons and story lines and adventures with the brothers and the rest of the cast. there is so much you could write about the world of fma because it’s so diverse and there are so many lovable characters. content is so easy to come up with and get indulged in, and that’s why a lot of fans join the fandom after they’ve watched it. they want to see MORE because fma’s ending is satisfying but still not complete, and you could still do so much with it. fma also has such complex writing that you’ll notice new things every time you re-watch it, or you’ll read an analysis post and find out something you’ve never realized before. everyone loves talking about the anime and finding all those parallels and symbols that it has, and getting indulged in that gives so much more to explore about the anime’s life lessons and meanings for things.

4. NOSTALGIA. fma’s first anime came out in 2003 and the manga even further back in 2001. there are people of so many different ages right now watching fma and loving it. it is such a memorable and nostalgic anime that it’s so easy for people to come back into the fandom even after years of watching the show! and that’s because it brings such a huge wave of nostalgia and the anime is just so good that people don’t forget their experiences with it. you could join 10, 20 more fandoms and not really be into fma anymore, but trust me when i tell you, when you suddenly see a really cool fanart piece of edward elric or someone doing an intense analysis on a certain scene years after you left the fandom, all of those feelings just come rushing right back. i’ve seen so many people draw fanart for fma and in the caption say stuff like “watched this back in 2005 and now all the feelings are hitting me all over again.” it’s just amazing how one anime can have such an impact on people’s lives, and i really do mean it when i say that fma is one of those animes that really does change your view on life. it’s so easy to connect to others with it because everyone feels the same way about it. the fandom won’t be dying out any time soon

MITSU’S TOP TEN ANIME OF 2016

Wow what a shit year! Not for anime, I mean, it was okay at worst. I think we’re definitely at the upward slope of the anime renaissance now, but still at the very start of it. It’s hard to think about that when most of what comes out (and is somehow popular) is just…the most generic shit. Well, I did the work for you. I weeded and trudged through some of the worst anime around and even some of my shit favorites to bring you the actual good, worth watching anime of the year.

Yeah, not everything you saw or want to see on this list is here, but you can check my foreword from last week that explains all that garbage. Links to each anime’s respective review will be on the titles (and added for those that just finished). Know that this list is pretty fluid. From 8 or 7 up, it’s all very much I loved them, but the higher up, the more I recommend anyone watch them.

10. Magical Girl Raising Project

Madoka was cool. I finally watched it this year and I was just as blown away by the psychological aspects as I expected to be. It just lacked that extra bite it needed to really scare my pants off. MGRP however, did indeed take a few years off of my life. I’m really in ruins right now since I can grab you by the shoulders and tell you now: you’ll like a lot of these characters and their thought out designs and personalities, but don’t get attached, cus ALMOST ALL OF THEM DIE.

I have to put MGRP on this list because aside from its fun and original designs, awesome interactions, cool-ass premise and execution (sometimes literally), it had some amazing rewatch value. I watched this anime three times, which is a lot to do in one year. I just had to watch people’s reactions and seeing stuff hidden in the background and revisiting some foreshadowing was so much fun. Definitely worth a watch and I’ll cover more about it in my upcoming review.

9. Orange

Regrets, like I have over not putting Kekkai Sensen into last year’s list, are the main theme of Orange. Buried under the shoujo themes of romance, high school, and angst, lies the actual regret: letting a friend kill himself. The main story unfolds itself very slowly as the group of friends discover that is what they must prevent, but it’s done in a realistic way. The signs of depression and suicide are so jokingly cast aside; it’s no wonder people miss it before it’s too late.

The climax of this story was heart-pounding and gut-wrenching. You find yourself rooting so hard for there to be success, to save someone who may not want to be saved, but must be saved. It might also make you pay closer attention to those around you. It’s an important anime to watch. If you do want one with a little less romantic emphasis though, I recommend you see Colorful instead (or also!).

8. Sweetness and Lightning

I need to marry someone who can cook. It doesn’t have to be a five-star chef, though I wouldn’t complain if it were the case, but Sweetness and Lightning reignited my need to be fed well. The show is about how food brings family and friends together. Aside from the great character interactions, well written children characters, and for god’s sake, the beautiful, perfect looking food, this anime was so pure in the amount of love put into it.

The food tops even some shown in Shokugaki no Soma, purely cus it’s doable for someone with a low skill level (like me), the meals are made for picky eaters (like me), and there’s not a ridiculously emphasis put on the orgasmic nature of food. That’s a thing that Shokugeki no Soma and even Koufuku Graffiti used stylistically in a comedic manner, but it doesn’t fit in Sweetness and Lightning for good reason. This show is accessible in that way, making it easier to show to someone who might want to try anime, but doesn’t want all the sexy fanservice.

7.Drifters

Kick-ass and Metal come to mind when Drifters is mentioned. I love Kohta Hirano’s previous work, Hellsing, a lot. It was a massive gore and blood fest with a sprinkling of comedy in the mix. This is a war and gore fest with a, not a sprinkling of comedy, but more like Hirano accidentally knocked the bottle of comedy over when he was checking on the oven directly into said mix. It’s really funny, but also really awesome. I have a lot to say about it in my review, but I think a dog fight with dragons involved kind of state my case for me. Also Elves, Dwarves and other Tolkien demihumans and monsters abound. It’s fun.

The animation is also gorgeous, especially that stylized, graphic novel looking opening theme with the rock anthem “Gospel of the Throttle” making you “NA NA NA NA NA NA” along with the characters every opening. It’s an excellent show to watch with friends or get yourself pumped. Returning sometime next year!

6. Kuromukuro

How can something be so trope-y, yet so damn enjoyable? Kuromukuro isn’t an original concept, but is done in an original way. The samurai trapped in a machine for 500 years is the new exchange student. The reluctant heroine needs to board the mecha to fight the alien threat. The school festival has been compromised by an alien mecha entering the atmosphere. This anime is funny, but it’s also emotional and holds a much wider scope than I ever could have expected. P.A. Works has been putting out some good contenders in the last few years, and with their lovely art style and well-balanced budget, they were able to pull off this massive mech story in an engaging and entertaining way.

I applaud the cast for one of the best ensembles on this list, bringing forth some of the best and most memorable character chemistry of the season, and some hilarious situational humor. I also cried a little near the end, but honestly, a lot of anime on this list did that to me this year.

5. My Hero Academia

Shonen anime is such a delight now, always a favorite of mine as a kid, but not as firmly as now. I love the underdogs; I love the over the top villains; I love the powers, the fights, and the yelling to infinity. It’s just so exciting and blood pumping, and MHA made it so refreshing with such an interesting spin. These characters are children, inexperienced, with quirks that may or may not be useful. I love Deku because his anxieties and general feelings of being less than everyone else not only make it exciting to see him overcome them, but to use them to keep his head and ego from getting over inflated like some shonen protagonists. Bakugo is such a good foil to him, showing where this could be a major weakness to a shonen protagonist.

Also it’s coming back with THE TOURNAMENT ARC, and if you’re like me and haven’t started the manga yet, DO IT! You won’t regret it! I’m more than excited to see more of this awesome anime in action.

4. Flip Flappers

This anime, wow this anime. I’m so upset not more people are talking about it, but have you seen this delight for the senses? I’m looking forward to reviewing it now just because my jaw is still kinda on the floor. Beautiful animation, a crazy cool style, and some of the best nonsense in magical-girl but not really fight scenes I’ve seen in a while. This anime reminds me of something, but I can’t quite put my thumb on it. I do know it’s like an amalgamation of my editor’s anime “TYPE” so you’ll see more about that in the review.

But good lord did I love the heart of this show. The pure romance, the exciting battles, the trippy psychological horror. Let me just say, that one episode (the Maria Watches Over Us “GOKIGENYO”), probably has scarred me for life, but I love it. It’s just so different and good. It deserves a watch, just for how delighted your eyes will be.

3. Erased (Boku Dake Ga Inai Machi)

I love a story that can get you emotionally invested and cheering for or yelling at the character who you don’t have any control over. Erased was paced beautifully (though some might disagree due to the slight differences in adaptation), and its animation only made every silent, tender moment more enjoyable to look at before the lighting and mood would change and the feeling of bloodlust would stain the air. That’s how you write suspense.

I’m a little annoyed because apparently some other people were reading some character motivations “differently,” (looking at you crunchyroll), but I think it’s safe to say this doesn’t cross the line into romance, at all, and stays a thriller about growing up in a life-threatening situation.

2. Shouwa Genroku Rakugo Shinjuu

I love the theatre, and I love comedy and storytelling. This anime manages to hit both of these points while showcasing some of the best animation I’ve ever seen. On top of the animation, there’s good directing, and supporting that is a great soundtrack. The story is vast and covers several characters’ lives over several decades surrounding World War 2.

The rakugo, though, is what makes the story. It’s not the first anime to touch on this topic, but it’s the first to do so in such an interesting way. It was very refreshing compared to a lot of titles on this list (though many of them are refreshing ideas!) with its originality. It’s heartfelt, it’s serious, it’s funny, but it also makes me want to cry. If it weren’t for the top spot being so hype as hell and generally a weekly freak-out among me and my friends, this would have been number one.

1. Mob Psycho 100
What can I say about Mob Psycho that hasn’t already been said? Its opening is gold, its animation is unique and interesting, its writing, directing, and characters are all praise-worthy. It is just hands down the best anime of the year. You may be thinking, “but Mitsu, One Punch Man was number one LAST YEAR. Isn’t Mob a little overhyped?”

No. Sit down and shut up. One is probably one of the best writers on the scene right now and is doing a lot better at writing genuinely empathetic characters and commentary on modern anime genres and tropes than most of the big budget barf fests. I think the “overhyped” talk is nonsense when it comes to mob. It genuinely does some interesting and groundbreaking work. That’s why it’s not only on this list, but number one. It never moved an inch since I decided it should be on the list.

Everything I’ve said has BEEN said by several really good reviewers and critics out there and you should definitely check out what they have to say about it too, because honestly, they’re a lot better than I am. I like Mob Psycho, I like One Punch Man, but I like Mob more. I’m so delighted that One Punch Man will be returning shortly and I only wish for Mob to also share the spotlight, as it deserves.

“It’s Over, Isn’t It” Is the most eloquent and breath-taking scene in Steven Universe in so many ways!


The Song

The first thing spectacular about the scene is obviously the song! It has no defined tempo, like pearl is rambling to herself through rhyme and melody. The lyrics fluent and clear in reference to her past experiences (Ones we’ve both seen and have yet to see) Especially in that break down where she blurts out phrases referring to concepts circulating her love for Rose Quartz. When that second round of the chorus kicks in and Pearl throws that damn rose in the air I almost teared up while watching the episode in a public place.

The emotion is real and infectious.

On further analysis of the song, It is revealed (Or at least solidified) that Rose has been with Plenty of Men, but they weren’t impactful enough to deter Pearl’s affections. Actually, the fact that pearl specifically said “Men” and not people in general could lead you to believe Rose had a preference for male humans and Pearl was in denial about it the whole time. Making her tale even more tragic and probably pretty relatable to quite few people. Pearl may have never had a chance with Rose… now I’m sad…

The Storyboarding and Animation

the shots and key frames are so dynamic and compliment this masterpiece of a scene. The show has it’s moments of fantastic animation but there are legit moments where there is only motion, like when pearl has that slow pan around her.

^ This part, watch it again, there is no still frame. and that’s not where the fantastic animation stops. It’s throughout the whole scene. The animation is fluid, clean, polished, who knows if there are even any errors in it.

Tell me this isn’t oozing with elegance and fluid motion!?!? Compared to the rest of the episode, the animation is the most consistent with how amazing it looks.

Ahh it was boarded by Joe and Jeff, no wonder pearl is so cute!

This is some inspiring stuff, I’m not even exaggerating saying this is the scene that has the best flow of the entire show, and it being a musical number makes that 10x better. 

The colors are also super pretty, shades of purple, pinks, blues, basically cool colors because, of course, it’s the evening.

Sorry to make such a long post, I just really wanted to gush about this scene, I’ve rewatched it so many times my friend @artsyjerk got pissed at me XD
Personally it’s my favorite song and favorite scene of the whole show, and It isn’t just hype, it’s lyrics are super important to pearl’s arch overall and the production value of the art and animation is so inspiring to me, someone who hopes to make things this beautiful in the future of Cartoon Programming.


There are a lot of bad moments in Episode 11 of odaat, but imo this is the worst. The plot of the episode is basically that Elena has recently come out to Penelope, and she’s not really okay with it, even though she wants to be (because she’s cool and liberal and progressive and she has gay friends she’s not homophobic!!!!) so she spends all this time making the whole thing about herself.

In this scene, Elena just came out to her conservative, ultra religious abuela (Lydia). Penelope looks surprised and a little disappointed when she says that she has no problem with it, and then when Lydia admits immediately after Elena leaves that she’s upset, Penelope literally reacts by going “Oh thank god”

This is gross but it makes a lot of sense considering her character. I don’t think Penelope has once said a thing about gay people that wasn’t dehumanizing or condescending, and it’s obvious she views herself a super accepting, despite being “okay with gay people as long as they’re not my daughter” and when Elena comes out, she’s upset but doesn’t want to show it, because it would ruin her Ally Cred ™  so she wants her mom to be unaccepting purely to validate herself.

This might be an interesting story if Penelope’s lesbophobia was effectively called out by the end of the episode, but it’s not. The resolution of this arc is her going to a gay bar, getting hit on by a hot straight guy, and crying to him about how hard it is for her that Elena is gay.

He responds, of course (because this is totally not a straight women’s fantasy about gay bars) by telling her that it’s ridiculous to worry about it! Her “entire view of her daughter” has been changed, so it’s completely reasonable for her to literally cry and feel bad for herself.

This is a terrible resolution to an episode that could have been about confronting homophobia that even straight people who consider themselves super liberal and accepting can have, and learning to not be so self centered. Instead, it completely fails to challenge Penelope’s obvious homophobia by throwing a boring hot guy at her and validating her self pity, and this isn’t the first time that odaat has shown lesbophobia as completely understandable and normal.

What frustrates me about this is that this show is reccomended as amazing rep despite this, and there is no discussion of the problems it has with lesbophobia.

Elena herself is great rep and really relatable especially for latinx lesbians but odaat definitely has a big problem with portraying lesbophobia as either sympathetic or a joke. Lydia calling her granddaughter homophobic slurs gets a laugh track, Schneider talking about wanting to fuck lesbians gets a laugh track, and when Penelope has a breakdown because she doesn’t think she can relate to her daughter if she’s gay, she gets a hot straight guy in a gay club telling her “uwu your feelings are valid  (ノ◕ヮ◕)ノ*:・゚✧ it’s hard to get used to!!! you shouldn’t feel bad!!” and then asking her out.

I’m tired of this show being praised without anyone pointing out just how lesbophobic the script is. It’s a relevant and important conversation that has honestly been ignored.

Quite the Hold | Theo Raeken Imagine ft. Scott McCall

request ; Request? One where scott has to tap into your memory like he does with corey because you saw something, and theo your boyfriend gets really mad at scott because you’re hurt after it. And theo shoves scott or something Sorry if it seems weird just thought it might be a cool scene ily

a/n ; this reminded me of that saying i always see on tumblr “asshole to the world but never towards your girl” so just take this imagine like that. 

Theo watched uncomfortably as you tied your hair up into a bun, preparing to let Scott tap into your memories. You weren’t quite sure what the process entailed, but Theo did, and he was dead set against it. In fact, he had tried to sneak out of your house and take his car with him so that you had no means of getting yourself to Scott’s house, but you caught your meddling boyfriend before he could try anything. He meant well, you knew, but this was necessary for the future of the pack. 

Scott entered his living room once again to find Theo scowling at him already, and he hadn’t even begun the process. Scott grimaced in response, shooting both of you a reassuring smile. “It’ll be fine, I promise,” Scott told you, patting your shoulder. The comment was more for Theo than for you, but you gave him an appreciative smile all the same. Theo crossed the room to stand next to you, pulling Scott off to the side for a minute. 

“I don’t think this is a good idea,” Theo said, his eyes darting back to you. You were picking at one of your nails, seemingly calm about Scott digging his claws into the back of your neck and accessing your memories. “It’s not safe. She’s only human, Scott. I don’t want her getting hurt. I saw what you did to Corey, and it hurt him, a powerful Chimera.” 

“Look, Theo, I swear Y/N’ll be fine. It won’t even hurt that much. I wasn’t in a good place when I tapped into Corey’s memories,” Scott admitted, causing Theo’s nerves to spike up again, “but this time it will be different.” Theo begrudgingly let Scott make his way back over to where you were sitting on the couch, standing behind you with his claws now fully extracted. Theo heard a brief rise in your heartbeat when you saw them come out, but you gave the Scott the go-ahead before your overprotective boyfriend could do anything. 

“I’m ready, go for it,” you said confidently. Theo squeezed your hand, but his entire body seized up when he saw Scott plunge his claws into the soft skin on the back of your neck, a gasp of shock escaping your lips. Theo immediately dropped your hand, his eyes narrowing as he analyzed each of Scott’s movements, and yours. At first, your eyes were screwed shut, as if that was helping the pain, but then they flew open, and a quiet groan of pain could be heard throughout the room. 

Give him a few seconds, Theo reasoned with himself, trying to dial down the aggressiveness he felt like displaying at that very moment. He’ll probably be stopping any second now. But he didn’t. Not until your hands were trembling and your eyes were watering and the pain you were feeling was nearly unbearable. Scott finally let go, his eyes shifting back from blazing red to their usual warm brown, his claws vanishing. Theo breathed a sigh of relief, about to thank Scott for not being so hard on you when he noticed that you were rubbing your eyes frantically and trying to calm yourself down. 

Theo walked around to the back of the couch, pushing your head back so he could see your neck, which was bleeding profusely, puncture wounds evident. He turned your face so you were looking at him, anger practically seeping through his pores, though his voice remained as steady as he could manage. “He hurt you, didn’t he?” 

“N-no, it’s not that bad, really,” you protested, though your heartbeat gave you away. And Theo knew you too well. Theo let out one deep, shaky breath before gently letting go of your cheek, turning toward Scott, who was staring at the both of you with wide eyes and a guilty expression. 

“Y/N I-I didn’t mean to…you know I would never, I’m so sorry,” Scott said, looking extremely upset with himself. Theo didn’t even notice the boy’s face, he was blind with rage. He hurt you. You

“You didn’t mean to?” Theo demanded, grabbing the front of Scott’s shirt in his curled fist and nearly lifting him off the ground. While Scott was the True Alpha and infinitely powerful, a werewolf consumed by rage because someone hurt his mate was possibly even more dangerous. “That doesn’t mean shit.” Theo roughly shoved Scott away from him, sending him spiraling into the bookshelf across the room. “You promised you wouldn’t let her get hurt. And yet you’re the one who hurt her.” 

Scott stood up shakily, shaking his head at Theo. “Theo, I swear to God, I didn’t want to hurt. She offered to give us the information and I thought I had better control over this whole memory thing-” 

“That’s not the point!” Theo yelled, his voice resonating throughout the entire house, and possibly the next few houses down. That was when you stood up, neck no longer bleeding, though the scratches were there and they weren’t modest. You grabbed Theo’s arm, but he simply shook you off, not even caring that you were there and calling his name out urgently. He could barely even hear you. “The point is that you don’t touch my fucking girlfriend! You don’t hurt her. No one hurts her. So don’t think that you can get away with it because you’re the Alpha. That’s not how it works.” 

“Theo, he gets it, okay? It wasn’t that bad,” you insisted, tugging at his arm insistently. He blinked a few times, finally realizing that you were there. 

“Are you sure? They won’t heal as fast…” Only you could manage to calm that boy down from a rage like that, which was a blessing and a curse in itself. “I-I didn’t like that, Y/N, you were bleeding, and crying, and that’s not okay. Ever. If anyone hurts you, I’m the one who kicks their ass. That’s how it works.” 

“You don’t have to hurt Scott. He didn’t mean it. And the scratches will heal, just not as fast. It’s fine. I wanted the pack to have the information they needed. That was the whole point of this.” He nodded, his cheeks flushed an embarrassed red. “Could you go apologize to him now?” 

“…I guess,” he muttered, leaning down to give you a kiss on the cheek. Then, he apologized to an amazed Scott, helping the boy up and giving him a pat on the shoulder, apologizing a second time when he realized that the bookcase had been destroyed in Theo’s fit of overprotective rage. 

“You really have a hold on that boy,” Scott told you as Theo went into the bathroom to find you some bandaids and disinfectant. 

“Trust me, he has a quite hold on me as well. I just love him a lot,” you replied, not even hesitating to say those words before plopping down next to an equally exhausted Scott. Theo just grinned to himself in the bathroom, holding a box of bandaids in one hand and a cold washcloth in the other, happy that you were just as taken with him as he clearly was with you. 

Kohei Horikoshi Pre-Anime Interview

May I ask you what you really felt when you first heard that your work was going to be animated?

I was really surprised. I remember it was decided when the serialization wasn’t even a year old, so I felt kind of lost all of the sudden. Then I hurriedly started telling my friends and family the news about my work getting animated, and they were all happy for me, which is the moment that I finally had the realization that went something like “ah, this is great, I’m getting an anime”.

When and where did you hear about the news of the anime announcement?

I don’t remember it quite clearly now, I think it was when Vol 3 was about to come out. My editor mentioned it when he was talking about some other stuff. (Laughs) Every Friday we have a discussion, and I remember my editor was talking about the rankings when he said “Oh yeah, there’s news about the anime.”

What were the circumstances that gave birth to My Hero Academia?

My second series was axed really quickly after such a short time of serialization, and I was pretty depressed about things. I didn’t have the energy left to create new things in the manga medium, but I still needed to come up with one fast. So, I decided to add happy things and happy events that I had drawn in my previous works into this new series. Before, I was really happy drawing the one shot My Hero, so I wanted to make that the foundation and create something new from it. The stage my new series and My Hero is the same, so I decided to add a lot of the elements that have appeared in my previous works into it as well. From a certain point of view, this series is actually the accumulation of all my works from when I first started drawing.

When you’re drawing My Hero Academia, what are some things that you watch out for?

This series is the story of Izuku and All Might, and I plan to make their story the main focus of the plot line, and the “vertical axis” that runs through the main story. It’s actually not a really glorious story at all, as All Might grows weaker every day and Izuku gets injured every now and then. Even the victories in the story for the protagonists aren’t won straightforward and simple. If I keep drawing the story involving these two characters, I feel like the story would get darker and darker as time goes on. My own personality has the tendency to compel me to keep delving deeper and deeper into that. To avoid making the story too dark, I set up a “horizontal axis” to intersect the main story’s “vertical axis”, which is the “fun part”, also known as the Quirks to the heroes of the story, or side character characteristics. With the “horizontal axis”, it sort of mellows out the darker aspects of the “vertical axis”, so “enjoying the horizontal axis” is something that I insist upon, which is something that I watch out for. If I can make myself happier while drawing, then the story would seem that much brighter.

Is All Might the character in My Hero Academia that you like the most?

It would be wrong of me to say that I “like him the most”, as All Might is an absolute within this series, so there is no choice for me as I have to like him. His words are all very cautious, so I have to go over them repeatedly to decide his lines, which costs a lot of effort. So even though I like this character, as I draw him I need to keep reminding myself that “this is important!”. On the opposite end, Bakugou is somebody that I can relax to draw. I really like Otomo Katsuhiro sensei’s, Akira, and within this series there is a character called Tetsuo who, even though he’s a kid, is really strong. And he uses his power like a kid too. I really like that, so I decided to create a character like that in My Hero Academia, which is why mentally speaking, Bakugou is still like a child, though he has a really strong power. His way of fighting is also jumping and flying around, and when he actually fights he hollers and shouts. I’m really happy when I draw characters like that. However Bakugou’s words are all really rude, which might make readers feel unpleasant, though personally I like him.

From the start of the series until now, which parts of the story do you personally enjoy?

I enjoy them all actually. I really melded my feelings into the characters when drawing Izuku and Bakugou’s battle training. Also I needed to get a strong hold on the reader’s heart, as that part was the climax of that arc, so I really tried my best, which is something that I really like about it. I got a lot of positive reviews for that part too, which gave me some reassurance. Including this reassurance, this is probably one of the parts that made the most impression on me.

Indeed, that scene included some of the heavier aspects of Izuku and Bakugou’s relationship. And on the other side, Iida and Ochako were cheerfully having a conversation, which was a lot of fun to read. Is this the “vertical axis” and “horizontal axis” relationship you were talking about?

If there were only Izuku and Bakugou there, then sometimes things might turn out really scary, and Iida and Ochako can mediate their relationship by being their, slowly finding a balance point… that’s what I was thinking when I drew the scene. I’m touched that you’re able to see this.

Sensei, if you were to discover your own “Quirk”, what quirk do you think would be right for you?

I thought about that one already, and that is the “no need for sleep” Quirk. (laughs)

That’s very much like the style of a mangaka. (laughs)

I often fall asleep without meaning to. And once I fall asleep, I can’t wake up… If I were to use this quirk then I would use it normally, and this quirk might make people not feel tired at all.

What manga and anime did you enjoy as a child?

A manga that I enjoy is definitely Dragon Ball, and when I was young I always kept reading Dragon Ball. I kept reading the same volume. I think it was the place a little bit before the android, Cell, started the Cell Games? I don’t know why, but I kept rereading this volume. In terms of anime, there were a lot of anime that were on TV at 6 PM. I really liked Mashin Hero Wataru, rewatched that many times. I also dressed up as Zurugibe Shibaraku, which is a character from that show.

Do you have any influences from Dragon Ball?

My impression that strong characters are packed with muscles is probably because of Dragon Ball’s influence. I really like the body shape of Goku when he goes Super Saiyan, which might be where All Might’s concept came from.

A lot of people say that My Hero Academia is similar to American comics. Have you always enjoyed heroes from American comics?

Yeah. Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man was super impressive, and after watching that I started reading American comics from time to time and watching American hero movies. What I learned from them is that, American onomatopoeia and character lines are formatted differently from manga, which is something that i will keep in mind. When I read them I would notice : “Oh, so the sound effect of that fight is added here” . Other than that there are the darkness of the color black and the use of shades. Such as the balance of using full black, which I noticed when flipping through comics “Ah, so coloring this place black would have this kind of effect on the scene”. Even though I haven’t fully grasped the technique yet, I am still learning while I am working on my series.

So, Sensei, what heroes do you like?

Probably have to be Goku and Spiderman. To me, when mentioning heroes, these two are the ones that I think of. In Goku’s case, it’s the reassurance that everything is going to be fine he brings when arriving. Such as, on Namek, Goku was getting healed, and his friends are all beaten badly. When Goku finally recovered and walked out of the healing machine, that reassurance right there is what I’m talking about. Something like “Ah, everything is going to be fine”. When I first read it and saw it was really Goku who had arrived, I continued reading thinking the thought “gonna win”. (laughs) That reassurance is something that all of the other characters don’t have. I thought about it afterwards, and even though there are a variety of heroes, the hero model that is built up in my mind is built around the concept that the hero is somebody that brings reassurance. That’s why I think a hero to me is somebody that helps and brings reassurance to others. In Spiderman’s case the first experience I had with this character was the movie, in which there were a lot of scenes with him rescuing people, which I felt that was really cool. The moment he “saves somebody” is really awesome. Well, In Goku’s case it’s because he likes fighting that he fights so that’s a bit different. (laughs) You can say that Spider-Man and Goku are two different aspects of being a hero. Also, I recently watched the Anpanman movie. Anpanman is really cool, and even when Kabao kun was beaten badly by Baikinman’s robot henchmen, when Anpanman arrives everything was okay. After Anpanman arrived, everybody’s expression was something like “you’re finally here”. Everybody’s mood shifted to become more positive when only Anpanman arrived. That’s probably what it means to be a hero. Of course everybody has a different view on what it means to be a hero, and some people might say “heroes aren’t supposed to be like that”, though to me that’s what being a hero means, and that’s the aspect of heroism that I want to illustrate in My Hero Academia.

Next are some questions about the anime. Midoriya Izuku’s CV is Yamashita Daiki, who also did the radio drama before. What were your impressions on hearing his voice?

Actually, I never really thought much about Izuku’s voice, and when I heard it in the radio drama, I sort of naturally accepted it as: “Ah, so Izuku has that kind of voice”, so it’s hard for me to imagine somebody else other than Yamashita san doing Izuku’s voice.

You mentioned earlier that you really enjoy drawing Bakugou. What do you think of the voice of his CV, Okamoto Nobuhiko?

Ah, if it’s Katsuki, then his voice really captures the feeling the character. Like I said before, Katsuki is like Tetsuo from Akira, giving off characteristics of an antagonist, so he’s really like a child, like a little kid…And Okamoto san’s voice (even though me saying this won’t sound good to Okamoto san) is like a child, the very naughty type. The way he speaks also gives off a very middle schooler type feeling. (laughs) Okamoto san really brings out Katsuki’s characteristics, so this character belongs to Okamoto san and nobody else. Really fitting.

How about Uraraka Ochako’s CV, Sakura Ayane, and Iida Tenya’s CV, Ishikawa Kaito?

Sakura Ayane san’s Uraraka Ochako, is really cute. I’m really looking forward to her voice when she fights. About Ishikawa Kaito san’s Iida, I actually have some things that I’m not sure about myself about Iida’s character, and only after listening to his voice was I able to make a decision.

What about All Might’s CV, Miyake Kenta san?

When I heard Miyake san’s voice for All Might, It gave off a feeling that All Might is talking to Izuku while crouching down so that their eye levels are the same. All Might isn’t towering above, and after thinking about it over again it really is that way. Only heard a little of Miyake san’s All Might, and I feel that he’s got a good handle of this feeling, so I like Miyake san’s All Might.

What were your feelings when you saw for your very first time the animated My Hero Academia?

When I saw the PV last year, I felt something like “this is awesome!”. I can only say something normal people can say: “The characters are really moving”. I was working when I watched the PV with my editor. Naturally I started grinning. Because I didn’t want to be seen doing that by my editor, I kept my hand covered over my mouth. (laughs) Getting an anime is a dream I’ve always had for many years, and I’m really happy.

What do you expect the most from the anime?

Definitely the action parts. Like how the characters will move. I’ve received comments like “the action parts are really hard to understand” for this series, and only the anime can really show the outrageous action parts easily and effectively, so I hope the anime crew is able to do a really good job, I’m looking forward to it.

Action is Bone’s forte.

That’s right. That’s why I’m really looking forward to it…(laughs)

And last of all, please give a message for all of your readers.

Getting my work animated is really something way too extravagant for me, so I will keep on working hard so that I won’t be left behind in the dust by it, that’s how much I’m looking forward to the anime… My Hero Academia’s anime will probably become something really awesome, so for the original series, I won’t lose to the anime, will do my best to draw amazing stories with all my effort. Thank you all for your support!

“The scene coming up with me and Lydia I really really really loved to shoot. It was a scene that I was super connected with like as a character…from character standpoint so… that’s always cool when that happens…you know you’re on a show.. you go to work everyday and coming to do a scene that really like touches your heart..it’s kinda cool.”

I know this is super old but it’s one of my most favorite thing Dylan has ever said about stydia. Whenever he mentions stydia, he says such thoughtful and beautiful things. He knows his character inside and out and I love that Dylan knows that Lydia is such a core part of who Stiles is. Whenever he speaks about Stiles’ arc he mentions Lydia because he know that Lydia plays a huge part of Stiles’ life. Like imagine thinking that Dylan isn’t one of the biggest stydia shippers among the cast. This tops everything he’s ever mentioned about any other one of his ship and this was in 2013 about the stydia kiss in 3a. I need more stydia talk from Dylan now that they are actually canon.

anonymous asked:

'I once had to play beer pong on camera'?

I did. And here’s the thing: I am terrible at beer pong. Like, trust me you do not want me on your beer pong team because I will miss the whole fucking table, never mind the cup I’m aiming for. Unless I’m supposed to tackle something or I’m holding a weapon, I have the motor skills of a week-old baby with feet for hands, I shit you not.

So once upon a time I was on this indie TV show and they wrote a party scene which involved my character beating all the boys at beer pong with this epic one-cup shot and when we got the script  and we were doing our table read I just looked up at the director and said, “Dude, there is no way in hell,” and he said, “It’s fine, you only have to actually make the one shot.” 

Two weeks later we’re all in the director’s pool at like fucking midnight because that was the only time the complex would let us film. People are jumping in and out of the water and fighting with noodles and we’re blasting music and chugging beer, and I have no idea why but someone brought a puppy, and in the middle of all this nutfuckery one of my co-stars and I have been playing essentially one-sided beer pong for like two hours while they shoot other parts of the scene. Finally the director and the DP come over and they’re like cool, okay, we’re going to do your bit now, but don’t worry because all of these shots are on Sam so just say your lines and throw the ball and don’t worry about where it goes. And like, I’m a fucking actor so I can at least act like I’m good at beer pong, so there I am saying all these snotty lines about how I’m kicking this guy’s ass for the tenth time in a row when really I’m firing fucking ping pong balls so far off course that fucking NASA couldn’t steer them back in the right direction. We do like ten takes and then the director turns to me and goes, “Okay, this is your shot so make it count.” And of course I’m thinking Dude I hope you’re prepared to do 200 takes of this one fucking shot because there’s only one damn cup on the table that I have to hit, but the camera starts rolling and the DP calls action and I square up and lob the ball with as much aplomb as I can manage. And it soars in this beautiful arc and lands right in the cup with this perfect golden splash of beer. And I was so excited I completely forgot my line and just yelled “FUCK ME NO WAY.” 

The director facepalmed so hard I think he might have given himself a black eye. And I’m just standing there like shit shit shit shit I completely ruined that take and the DP calls cut and the director just goes, “Um, yeah. We can’t use that.” 

And that is the short story of the only time I ever succeeded at beer pong and completely failed at being an actor and one of my co-stars threw me in the pool as payback.


Okay so there have been lots of things said since 22|1 which is when I first started writing this post for (then my laptop shut down and holy fucking shit I hadn’t saved it, and since then I had like zero motivation to write it). The whole tone of those discussions are that there still will be the fourth episode but now it will air on the 29|1 because we are desperately hanging onto threads that will be the 7 year anniversary of John and Sherlock meeting. All of this, however, does not really matter because I am mostly going to be talking about all of the loose ends they will/need to tie up in this fourth episode.


Why Apple Tree Yard is A Shit Show Should Have Been Sherlock:

So when I wrote this first I was pretty certain that ATY was going to be Sherlock, even though before hand I wasn’t so sure. I had looked at the BBC’s TV Guide and there was no room for Sherlock:

Which was obviously disappointing but a few days later everyone started thinking that ATY was going to be Sherlock, and because this section isn’t crucial to the fourth episode theory I will summarise it with these two posts: 

{x} {x}

The first post says a lot of different things, butthe point I want to draw on the similar synopsis between ‘The Lost Special’ (an ACD story which is widely accepted to be Sherlock’s Narrative which I get into later because S4 can be seen as Sherlock’s Narrative) and the first episode of ATY:

‘The Lost Special’ Synopsis:

However, nothing is ever as it appears, and when she receives an unexpected proposition from an enigmatic stranger, Yvonne is shocked by the passion he awakens in her. But gradually she begins to realise that there is much more to her lover than meets the eye, and she could be playing a very dangerous game indeed.”

ATY Synopsis:

“An eminent scientist gets caught up in a highly damaging and compromising lie.”

“A doctor starts an affair with enigmatic stranger and begins to suspect more is at play

The second post discussed the theory of straight-baiting which would suit Mofftiss as surely they would know that we would accuse them of queer-baiting and the irony would be too juicy for Mofftiss to refuse:

‘If AppleTreeYard is a stand in for the 4th episode and the real ATY airs in February….They’re straightbaiting.

If this means what I think/hope it means, they WANT people to get excited about this explicit sex in the first episode. But if it’s really the 4th episode of Sherlock…that means….’

So I still stand by the fact ATY should have been Sherlock - it would genuinely have been ‘making history.’


Why We Need A Fourth Episode:

  • None of it makes any sense!
  • The Garridebs -  Mofftiss could never!
  • ‘Love conquers all.’
  • ‘If we can pull this off…’
  • BBC going on and on  about lgbt+ representation
  • ‘Making history…’
  • Mary not being a villain
  • Mycroft remembered Redbeard as a dog???
  • “It is hard to pull off shock. All soap twists are flagged up three weeks before they air.” -Mark Gatiss
  • “Why don’t they have some faith in the audience and pull the rug from under them? When you pull off one of those moments it is genuinely thrilling.” - Mark Gatiss
  • Oscar Wilde quotes???
  • A FREDDIE MERCURY SONG ABOUT BEING A MASSIVE GAY LORD
  • They seemed to go out of their way to unconfirm Johnlock???
  • HOW DID MARY SEND ALL THESE RANDOM DVDS????????
  • Whatever these are???? {x} (this link has a great theory on why the fourth episode should have been on 22|1 - but that didn’t happen. I wanted to use more of that theory before my STUPID LAPTOP SHUT DOWN) {x} (shown below:)

What Is The Fourth Episode Going To Be:

Before I get into this I just want to say that I don’t actually think that there is going to be the fourth episode, I don’t think Mofftiss are that clever - but we are, so this is what is should be rather than what it is necessarily what it will be. What a fucking clickbait section. Fight me.

It’s kinda hard to deny that there are a lot of loose ends that need to be tied up, so I think it’s going to be a bit of a TAB where there’s lot’s going on and it’s all very fundamentally important. TFP didn’t solve anything, so we do need an episode just explaining what the fuck just happened. However how it’s going to be presented is kinda unknown but it will have to link to the season, even Mofftiss can’t pull off a random season with zero correlation to the rest of the show (or can they??).  This link will probably be the narrator. The reason S4 may seem so off is because the narrator has changed - theories belowwwww:


John’s Narrative?

Now John is the narrator and has been throughout the entire show, even when Sherlock was in his mind palace. They kept that from the original ACD stories, so when they made things seem subtly off it suggests either John isn’t the narrator or something about him has changed. 

The most coherent and persuasive theory I have seen can be found here: {x} but I am going to break down the theory into less detailed points.

John got shot at the end of TLD and so this could easily be his coma-induced nightmare and the way that TFP is still told in John’s narrative is that this is his coma-induced nightmare. The outline of this theory is basically:

  • He doesn’t trust Sherlock
  • He lost Mary/his straight (sexuality) blanket
  • He saw Sherlock on all the drugs
  • Sherlock nearly killed himself for him
  • He cheated
  • Eurus is his Moriarty (Moriarty made Sherlock lose John, and Eurus made John lose Mary and Sherlock)
  • TFP is the bi version of TAB and it’s honestly just full of gay pining
  • EURUS ASKS SHERLOCK IF HE’S HAD SEX AFTER HE PLAYS IRENE’S THEME AKA JOHN’S WORST NIGHTMARE

However, like I stated before the whole of S4 was off, not just TFP so I don’t think that any theories that it’s John’s narrative still makes sense. I think that it is more likely to be Sherlock’s narrative… (ohhhhh segwayyy)


Sherlock’s Narrative?

Now, this is what I think is the most reasonable explanation. I think that it works out the best. I’m going to split this into characters and how they fit in a:

Sherlock:

I think that S4 is Sherlock in his mind palace, and we can see this with all of the characters around him as well as him and his juxtaposition to Eurus. Sherlock is a lot more emotional in this Series which completely opposite to Eurus who is completely different to any other villain we have seen. Moriarty is so emotional he clearly wants to be with Sherlock and has strong sexual feelings for him and I would argue romantic as well as seen as he gets so #triggered by John and Sherlock’s reaction in the pool scene. Both Magnussen and Smith felt immense pleasure in their respective wrong-doing. Culverton even got a boner. Irene fell in love and so did Mary.

Eurus felt no pleasure, not even when having sex with the nurse. She did all of this for scientific research.. or did she?

John:

This is the nightmare aspect of Sherlock’s narrative like I said before Sherlock is no longer part of John’s life. John doesn’t trust him, and that is one has to be Sherlock’s worst nightmare - the one person he lets in leaves him alone. 

HE FUCKING BEATS HIM UP FOR FUCKS SAKE JESUS CHRIST.

We also know that John has acted out of character in this season, and I think that’s because it’s what Sherlock sees. John doesn’t save Sherlock, John loves Mary so much he can’t save her and FUCKING BLAMED HIM INSTEAD.

Mycroft:

Now Mycroft is the character I really think proves all my points. In the whole season, he acts exactly like he did in Sherlock’s mind palace in HLV. Mycroft represents the knowledge that Sherlock has but he can’t quite get to. Mycroft feeds it slowly to him, and this is how we seem him act - he never outright explains anything, not even Eurus. Now I know Mycroft acts like this in real life as well, but I definitely think that how he acts in S4 is very reminiscent of how he acted in HLV.

Moriarty:

Moriarty comes back because Sherlock needs someone to blame, everything that happened with Mary and John, Sherlock couldn’t cope with on his own - being his fault. Now as I pointed out before Sherlock is more emotional (more on that laterrrr) he needs Moriarty to blame and that’s why he came back and talked to Eurus.

Eurus:

I have a theory that Eurus is Sherlock’s sociopathic side, and this whole season was Sherlock inside his mind palace convincing himself after a childhood of torment that feeling is okay. Emotions are okay and falling in love with John is not a weakness. We see Sherlock save Eurus and that’s what Sherlock needed to prove to himself that everything Mycroft taught him when he was younger wasn’t necessarily true. This is why we see Sherlock being more emotional.


Mary’s Narrative?

Now the whole theory that it is Mary’s narrative is only based on the fact that a) she narrates a lot of the end scenes and b) she should have the opportunity to be a badass villain. Honestly, I promise I’m not running out of steam but there is such little proof for this option so I really have nothing left to say except knowing Mofftiss this is the route they will go down (drag them bitch).


Other Questions I Have Because whAt THE FUCK?

  1. WHO THE FUCK IS LADY SMALLWOOD??? I still need someone to explain the Elizabeth/Alicia business, I stg?!?!?!
  2. This meta which doesn’t really come under any of the other section but I just think it was so cool when I read it: {x} but to summarise, the doctored footage in the opening to TFP had been doctored and so, therefore, had the episode. Check it out, it is so clever.
  3. What the fuck are these?

Also, I was talking to @london2go about the fourth episode. The conversation basically was like if it doesn’t happen today (29|1 e.g. 7th anniversary) then either Moftiss is gonna completely Reichenbach us and make us wait two years orrrr this entire masterpost was a waste of my time rip. If any of you think this fourth episode might actually be the first episode of season five then… good point but after a number of complaints the BBC got I kinda doubt there will be a season five

Okay trying out some quick atmosphere thingies… Still pretty incomfortable but the practice is really fun. I just have trouble not putting some reddy spots everywhere. 
So that’s the artificiery scene in Name of The Wind, where Kilvin gets really cool explaining stuff (I don’t even remember what but it was cool), also mostly saying like “THIS THING EXPLODES BE CAREFUL” because of course the thing will eventually explode later on in the story.

yeah.

So this was such an unexpected amazing night! My friend and I went to go watch “Below Her Mouth” at TIFF, and it was beyond amazing. Such a real, well written, and heartfelt film (everyone has to go see it if you haven’t yet!!!) Natalie and Erika were phenomenal, I can’t even begin to describe how well the portrayed their characters and how they brought the story to life. Incredible.

After the film, I met Natalie and Erika and they were super nice :) I talked to Natalie and told her that I loved her as Willa and she was like “oh my god yes, Wynonna Earp!” She was so genuinely happy to be recognized for that character it was so cute. I asked her if she were coming back for season 2 and she says she doesn’t know yet, but it’s a show about revenants and demons so you never know! And I was like “Yeah you could totally come back as a revenant! Emily got you ;)” LOL.

Then after my friend and I were just hanging around and I saw Dom!!! At first I didn’t believe it was her but omg it was. She watched the film as well and was talking with Natalie, so I waited after they were finished talking. Then Dom saw me and was like “Omg Shirley, hey!” And she came and hugged me and we just hung out and talked for a bit. We also talked about the film and Dom was joking around saying how Willa said she didn’t know (Waverly) was a gay in the barn scene and now she (Natalie) is playing a gay character in Below Her Mouth LOL. It was really cool because we were just chatting about stuff like friends :)

A great night turned into an amazing night. And I’m blessed to have met all three Earp sisters LOL

Ps. Can we please appreciate how great Dom looks with her braid?! And she was wearing heels, hence the height difference LOL

A comic I did after watching “Lars and the Cool Kids” again and remembered this seat belt scene. I thought it was really funny how Sour Cream was so serious about it and ended up thinking up why that would be.

Note: The square joke was something I thought of and then realized it didn’t make sense but then thought it over again and felt Amethyst would probably say something like that and then came to full circle that Pearl only proved that she was truly a square because she was so pointy.

James Le Lacheur as Scorpius Malfoy: Part Two

There’s so much to look forward to from Scorpius (and from Scorpius and Albus together) in Part Two so I was really psyched to see how James did. I was also a little bit terrified. I always said I never wanted to see anyone’s first Voldemort Timeline. That is a really big thing to carry, and it’s the part of the play that really shows Anthony’s skill every single time, because he makes it look effortless. But I did not need to worry even a little bit. James’s part two might have been better than their part one (notes on that can be found here).

Part II of the Kent/Tater crack because I’m in rarepair hell. This one’s kinda spicy but not explicit. Part I is here. Alright.

Kent’s not sure why he agreed to be here, other than the fact that he’s apparently the world’s biggest masochist. When Alexei invited him over after their game in Providence, Kent knew the best course of action was to politely decline due to him being too thoroughly invested getting naked together. Instead, he said “yeah, sounds good.”

He knows what this is. He’s cocky, not delusional. Back in Las Vegas he flirted, they bought each other drinks. It was nice. Friendly. Now he’s at Alexei’s front door, shirt buttoned up to a respectable hole, ready for a good night between bros. Just guys being dudes, he thinks, and he tries not to think it bitterly.

Alexei opens the door and Kent pretends he doesn’t notice or care about how tall he is. It’s hard when Alexei throws his arm around Kent’s shoulders and steers him inside.
