Favourite Acting Scenes – Isak and Even meet in the schoolyard (9.10 part 4)

Also known as that post in which I make use of my English lit degree to overanalyse everything.

So here it comes: the scene, in which everything is laid bare and has been episodes in the making. You get the script, but as far as you can see, there is only one line for one of you. That means that the rest of the scene hinges upon you, the actor, your eyes, your body movements, your energy. Throughout the series, you’ve had moments in which moments of quietness were needed, but none as long as this one. To really make it work, it’s all about you and your fellow actor. As mentioned in @softnorwegianslovely post  the trust has been established: you know what you’re both comfortable with and what you can do without breaking the scene. You can challenge each other, and you have each other’s back; so you can make this as intense as possible. We as an audience have to keep in mind; it could be that the music was played during the filming of this scene, but it’s not the only sound they would’ve heard. 

So how is it possible that this scene feels so particularly intense, even when you disregard the music? I think that one of the reasons that makes you feel it so deeply is because of its use of the five senses in order to focus on feeling. Feeling that you’re not alone is so different from knowing that you’re not alone.

Regardless of whether Even was really going to take that final step or not, Isak is scared out of his mind after receiving that text message. As a person who has the tendency to assume the worst, as evidenced by his inability to see that people aren’t always mad at him for stuff he does, for Isak to see that bench to be empty has to be the most horrible feeling in the world. You feel that his heart just sinks right into his stomach; until he remembers Even’s ridiculous towel dispenser flirting move – maybe he’s to be found there. And then, as if the stars aligned for just that moment, Even is there.

The tiniest hint of a smile is found in Tarjei’s mouth and eyes, and he makes the relief feel tangible; Even is shocked into a motionless state, his depression clearly has taken a heavy toll on him with his red-rimmed eyes. But still, they walk towards each other. Both in different mind-sets; Even terrified and maybe unable to comprehend what’s going to happen here, while Isak is slowly taking in the fact that Even’s still here. They keep looking at each other.

Now, the first time I saw this scene I was confused as to what Isak was doing here; he’s not kissing his cheeks but seems to be ‘nosing’ them. But rewatching it a few times, one edit with regular street sounds in particular, made me realise that Isak slowly wants to make sure that Even physically and emotionally feels that he’s not alone. And even for himself, this is the case: Isak needs to feel Even is there, he isn’t gone yet again, he’s right there. We need to see this in close-up.

So first are touch and smell; cheeks upon cheeks, noses upon noses as they are so fond of doing. Can you feel me, Even? How close we are to each other? There’s no space between us. And when he’s sure Even feels him – because Even leans into him in small increments, brushing his nose ever so slowly over his cheek – then he moves on to touch and sight and hearing. His hands make sure Even looks up, into his eyes. Can you see me, Even? I’m still here. See me here so close to you.

And then he mentions a few of the most wonderful words you can hear in this universe and all the parallel ones.

You’re not alone.

What a beautiful reaction from Henrik here: he listens, takes it in, and closes his eyes as if it’s too good to be true. Ever so slowly, they move on to touch and taste. Isak takes the initiative, kisses Even very carefully and only twice. I’d like to kiss you so much more. If you’ll let me. But that’s all they need for this moment. Then there’s the eye contact again; Isak already almost falling against Even, seeing his face and those wonderful eyes again. Until now they’ve only given the barest touches to each other, but now that’s not enough anymore.

Tarjei and Henrik’s amazing chemistry, trust and ability to show the feelings and emotions behind this scene without saying anything made this such a special scene. Lesser actors would not have been able to convey such intensity in a scene without dialogue.

So Isak envelops Even into his arms, and Even reaches around him to tightly hug him back. And isn’t that one of the most wonderful feelings in the world? When you’re completely surrounded by someone’s smell, and touch them by taking them in your arms, and hear their breath pushing out in relief? Now you not only know you’re not alone, but you can actually feel it.

What a Helga Natt indeed.

Fic Rec Day!

I’m pretty sure I’m not late to the party! I wanted to first off say a massive thank you to all the fic writers out there! You give up so much of your time and you deliver the most beautiful pieces of art! I wish I was talented enough to draw or photoshop something for each of the fics on the list, but I am a talentless beast. 

Here come the fic!!! (Bold ones are my absolute faves)


  •  One the Other by @ruby–wednesday - My absolute favorite fic in the fandom. It’s a canon divergence. It’s so dialog and plot driven there’s so much character development. It’s absolutely incredible.
  • The Consummation by @josselinkohl - Exactly what it sounds like, only far far better. Probably my favourite sex scene in the fandom. 
  • Marks of Fate by @fahye - It’s the third and final part of the Lines on Palms series and it’s the best one. An absolute treat. 
  • Love of the Second Star by SteelStingray - Another canon divergence au. It’s a WIP so don’t say I didn’t tell you! I only read the first chapter and it’s amazing but I refuse to continue until it’s done! 
  • Size King by magisterpavus - There’s nothing I love more than people in love having sex. Also I am a firm believer that Laurent is indeed a size queen and that Damen is hung like a fucking wildebeest. This fic explores said beliefs.  
  • You’re Always Waking in the Night by @thankyoumerlin - A five and one time fic about them being in bed. So much better than what I make it sound like. 
  • A firm Hold of My Heart by @jithongchy - They get married. 
  • A Better Side of You to Admire by yekoc - I really like the dynamics here. And Damen bottoms. 
  • Relinquishing Control by @exy-king - Part of the Stages of Control series and it’s just wonderful, beautiful smut. Also it keeps up with my headcanon that Laurent and Damen get off on dirty talk. 
  • Murmur of the Land by @blacktofade - It’s an alternative take on the tent scene. Really well done and very much in character. 

Honourable Mentions: 

Turns out I love A Lot™ of works by the same people, so instead of recing each fic I’ll just urge you to go read anything by @delfeur @josselinkohl @fahye @ruby–wednesday. You honestly do not understand how incredible their fics are. I could go on for days about each and every one of them! 

Happy reading!!!!! 

I’ve been reading tons of Jonsa meta and I think my favourite part, so far, is that Jon is legitimately the embodiment of everything Sansa idealized as a child, but a realistic version.  He’s kind, noble, heroic, cares both about family and duty, and loves deeply, but he’s a real person who makes mistakes and has flaws on top of it all.  Everything Sansa’s experienced in the series has destroyed her romantic notions, while Jon is out there being the kind of person she always wished for.  I don’t want Sansa to end the series as a misanthrope, I want her to rediscover some of her childhood romanticism whilst being the strong person she’s grown into, and Jon could easily fit into that picture. 

Currently re-reading The Lunar Chronicles so I can finally read Winter. It’s been sitting on my shelf unread for far too long.

Can’t wait to read the last book. This series has been one of my favourites since I bought Cinder and Scarlet in the summer of 2013. I read Cinder really quickly and was immediately hooked so I bought Scarlet right away.

As I have been replaying all the Mass Effect games in the series so far, I decided to draw my favourite character ever.

Garrus Vakarian
Ink and Watercolour
4 and a half hours to complete

Trans boy Arthur is such an amazing headcanon and I never see enough of it.

Trans boy Arthur going with the name ‘John’ at first because of his favourite book series, Sherlock Holmes, but eventually discovers that the name doesn’t really suit him as he once thought - so he changes it to ‘Arthur’ after the author instead, and discovers that Arthur suits him far better.

Trans boy Arthur deciding he’s had enough of his long hair when his parent’s are out of the house - and takes the scissors in his own hands. He’s ecstatic after he finishes the job and can’t stop running his finger’s through his now short and shaggy hair.

Trans boy Arthur still having feminine interests such as sewing and cooking and knowing that it doesn’t make him any less of a boy.

Fic Rec - Ivory & Steel

Hey! I’ve go sooo many fic recs but I’ll start with this one…

I ADORE everything that Vivilove writes and this is her new one, it’s only got 2 chapters so far but I’ve fallen and I fallen DEEP for a fearsome but sweet gunslinging Jon Snow. I think my favourite thing about her writing is that no matter the context in which she sets her fics, the language and dialogue between characters really, really works for what ever setting it’s in… anyway…GO READ IT (Also a HUGE fan of her ‘Captain Snow and his Lady series’….
