I saw so muchhhhhh Olicity hope in this episode. This may have been my most favorite episode all season, so much happened!

While I can’t say it’s my favorite episode of the season (that might be 5x08, followed by 5x06 and 5x02), I didn’t hate it as much as some did. I had an immediate visceral reaction, but it was more… hmmm… how to say this… It was more humorous. Because I’m not blowing sunshine up anyone’s ass when I say I don’t get too upset about happenings within the show anymore. I just… don’t. My immediate reaction was “what the fuck??” with lots of laughing. I didn’t find it to be the caliber of midseason finales I generally expect from Arrow. But… I didn’t think it was a bombed out shitshow either. There were plenty of moments of value in the episode. 

And yes, the hope for Olicity was one of those things of value. The flashback moment is a big chunk of that. I’ve seen a lot of people suspicious of why that flashback was included, what the motivations were and I think… “but it’s all just gravy.” Because no matter why it was included, the important thing is that it was included. Due to where they are in their relationship and personal story arcs at this point in the season, we could not get overt hope in the present day between Olicity. We just couldn’t. Felicity is seeing Billy, Oliver is seeing Susan… and then later, Oliver was responsible for Billy’s death which, while Felicity doesn’t blame him, IS a bit of a wedge. 

But the show could give us a glimmer through that flashback. That was the show telling us “Hey, it’s not all bad. These two have a rock solid foundation, they have the red pen, they have magic. Just be patient and trust in them to come back around.” And I’m good with being patient, trusting and waiting. 

Because that flashback told me to hang in there, good things are coming. That scene where Oliver told Felicity about Billy… that scene gave me chills. I could see their connection there, and while they are not together, that connection is still valid and will lead them, ultimately, where they need to go. 

Of all the things I wonder about this show and where it’s headed, the thing I wonder the least about is Olicity. I know they will get there. The second thing I worry least about is LL. 😉  With these two concerns off my plate, I’m free to wonder all kinds of fun other things like: What is Felicity’s big story in 5b? And who is Prometheus??? 

BWW Interview: Ready to Blow Us All Away- Meet HAMILTON’s Newest Star, Jordan Fisher! (Broadway World):

[…] What was your first show like?

The first show was a bit of a blur. I had been absolutely drained thinking about what it was going to feel like. I couldn’t really prepare myself for it. One of the questions I’m asked all the time is, “What’s it like replacing somebody and coming into a show that’s already all oiled and has been on for a year?” Everybody is already synced into it. It’s in their bones. It’s definitely as scary as it sounds. [Laughs] You’re one of the only people that’s learning. Everybody else has been doing it for a while. You get one put-in. You get one run of the show a week or so before you go on, and then your second time running the show top to bottom is your first night! You’ve got 1300 people in the audience that, probably for this show specifically, have all waited months, if not a year, to see it. They know all of it- all of the material. They’re just happy to be there and they expect the same show that they’re hoping to get. It’s kind of up to you to step in and pay homage to it. Step in, love it, take care of it

.At the beginning of the opening number I was like, “Oh man. It’s me! I’m the guy that’s got to go on stage and do it now. I’ve been watching Anthony Ramos slay it every night for weeks. Oh, he’s not here. I’m Laurens tonight! Okay. Let’s go!” That was it. [Laughs] We have a bit of a tradition every night before the show. We have a little prayer circle in the green room. Anybody who wants to just speaks and asks for thanks and love and we’ve got our eyes on this show with love. I give props and love to our cast for helping me come into it feeling as good as I did. That first night was so special. I had people in the audience, my family, a couple of friends. This is my oldest dream, so it was so special. I’m getting emotional thinking about it.


Did you get to do a lot of talking with Anthony before you went in? Did he give you any kind of advice?

He was an incredible person to watch coming into the role. He’s just so warm and so welcoming as I came into this. He was like, “I can’t wait to see what you bring to this. To the show, to this role.” He got the opportunity to create it and develop it from the beginning. So for me, I know that fans coming to see the show, they’re going to want the same thing. They’re going to kind of want something that they’ve been listening to. He told me early on, “Just do you. People are ultimately not going to see the same show. Give them what you want to give. That’s the most fair thing to you. And frankly, that’s the most fair thing for them.” He was like, “I want you to do you. I’m a fan of that.” I’m cool with that. […]

Michael Larson had a part-time job as an ice cream truck driver, but was cursed to look like a wolf digging its way out of a child molester’s corpse. This left him a lot of free time to watch game shows and daydream about free money. He taped them and rewatched them, almost certainly to an orchestra of tiny pleas for help coming from his freezer.

When you sit at home watching TV it’s only a matter of time until you hit it big, and that’s what happened to Michael. After six months of scrutiny, he noticed a fatal, exploitable weakness in the Press Your Luck scoreboard – the Holy Grail of creepy shut-in discoveries. He left for Hollywood with the last of his savings and despite looking like an oyster dressed as Santa, they put him on TV.

On Press Your Luck, a box spun randomly around a board and you stopped it with your buzzer to win whatever it landed on. The catch was that contestants could land on a Whammy, which was a cartoon monster that took all your money. Michael discovered that there were two spots on the board that never had a Whammy and the “randomness” was actually the same five sequences over and over. With little trouble, he went apeshit on their cash and prizes. He kept winning and winning until they ran over their broadcast time, and Michael ended the day with $110,237. This was by far the most money ever won on a game show and the biggest victory for questionable ethics since the invention of the penis pump. As he celebrated, karma scratched its head. It didn’t really know how to deal with something like Michael, but it knew it had to fuck him.

The 5 Biggest Cheaters in Game Show History

“..cause you believe that it’s a Romeo and Juliet reference, but you don’t get that before you……and then you get the reference”

“And after I’ve climbed up to the balcony I ask you ‘what happens after I’ve saved you?’ And you answer… I save you right back.”

I think that in episode 8 Even describes what happens in the last clip of episode 9… we (and isak) think it’s a romeo and juliet reference but it’s not. Because they don’t die. You’re not alone are the only words we hear in a 6 minutes long clip. With those words Isak is just replying to Even’s question and is saving him right back.

I’ve gotten a few requests to do a second part to my drunk!harry fic (also sorry if you requested it forever ago, i just saw the comments on it today!), so here it is 😊

My Writing

Part One

When Draco was finally able to fall asleep, it seemed as though his eyes had only been closed for about ten minutes before he was woken up by the ringing of a phone. Yes, a phone. Draco, too, found that hard to believe, but Potter had somehow convinced him to get one, saying that it was more convenient than using the floo all the time because that way he wouldn’t have people just showing up at his flat every time they needed to tell him something. 

Draco groaned and answered the phone.

“Hello?” He said groggily.

“Draco,” someone, who Draco immediately recognized as Harry, slurred.

“Potter? What is it?”

“I can’t sleep. Also, you said you would call me Harry from now on.”

Draco could practically hear the pout in Harry’s voice. He sighed and ran his hand down his face. 

“Harry, you were asleep when I left.”

“I know, but then I heard a noise that woke me up. I think someone might be in my house!”

Draco rolled his eyes. Potter hadn’t even been that drunk, he wondered what he was like when he was utterly hammered.

“Will you come over, Draco? Please?”

Draco let out another sigh, but was already throwing on some clothes.

“Yeah, I’ll be there in a bit,” he answered and hung up.

He finished getting dressed and then apparated to Harry’s house. He searched the house to appease Harry, and, unsurprisingly, didn’t find anyone there.

“Potter, I cannot believe you woke me up at three in the bloody morning,” he said as he walked into Harry’s bedroom.

“Did you look to see if there’s anyone else here?”

“Yes, and there was no one. However, I can see now that you’ve left this window open, so what you heard was probably something from outside.”

Draco reached over Harry to close the window that was above his bed.

Harry blushed and bit his lip.


Draco met Harry’s eyes and his heart melted at the look he was giving him. All his anger and annoyance at being summoned here at such an ungodly hour immediately disappeared. Draco gave him a small smile.

“It’s okay. Now scoot over.”

Harry gave him a confused look, and Draco raised an eyebrow.

“You can’t really expect me to go all the way back home. Knowing you, I’ll be called here again the second I lay down,” Draco teased.

Harry grinned and made room on his bed for Draco, who climbed in next to Harry, but then blushed at their proximity. 

What was I thinking? There’s a perfectly good sofa that I could have slept on to avoid how awkward this is sure to become.

Draco kept thinking these kinds of things, but then realized that Harry didn’t seem to mind one bit. In fact, he had cuddled right up to Draco, wrapping his arms around him and resting his head on his chest. Draco’s breath caught in his throat. Potter was cuddling with him. Surely it was just the alcohol in his system, though, and once morning came, he would be kicked out of the bed.

“Potter, what are you doing?”

Harry lifted his head to glare at Draco.

“It’s Harry! HAR-RY. Say it with me Draco: Harry.”

Draco chuckled.

“Sorry, it takes some getting used to. What are you doing, Harry?”

Harry smiled and laid his head back down on Draco’s chest.

“I just wanted to be comfortable.”

“I see, and the most comfortable place is on top of me?”

“Yup. You’re very warm, Draco.”

Draco just smiled and basked in the moment. This is what he fell asleep thinking about every night.

Harry, then, without really thinking about it, leaned up a little to place a small, soft kiss to Draco’s jaw.

Draco’s eyes widened and he felt heat flood his cheeks, but decided to keep his mouth shut. He really, really didn’t want to ruin this. He simply wrapped one of his arms around Harry and pulled him closer.

Harry hummed contentedly and moved his head from Draco’s chest to rest it on the pillow to look at Draco. Grey eyes met green. They were mere inches away from each other, and Draco felt himself leaning closer, closer until he finally pressed his lips to Harry’s. 

The kiss was gentle and warm. When they pulled away, Harry gave Draco a shy smile.

Draco was unable to return the smile, though, He immediately busied himself thinking about what a stupid thing that was to do. Because now, he would have that memory in his mind only to have Potter still only think of him as a friend when he returns to his sober state. Draco sighed and removed his arm from around Harry.

“You should really try to get some sleep,” Draco said in a slightly bored tone.

Harry gave him a slightly hurt look, but nodded and turned on his side, so he was no longer facing Draco, and quickly drifted off to sleep.

Draco decided that it was better this way. He shouldn’t get his hopes up only to be let down like so many times before. After all, it was the alcohol acting, not Harry. 

I just wanted to throw in a thing about the Perc’ahlia moment last night because a there’s been some discussion about what it shows about their relationship dynamic, especially with Vex really taking charge …

But the thing is they’ve both had moments of boldness and moments of hesitation with each other. Last time Percy was bold with the kiss, and this time Vex was bold with her whole The Graduate thing. And I think all in all what all this shows is that in the long run they actually have a good balance - when one needs a push in the right direction the other is there to do so. Neither one of them is The One Who’s In Charge™ overall - they both have agency in their relationship.

And I think that’s really great.

What really happened the night of the banquet?

Okay, I’m seeing a lot of repeats of the same fanon assumptions about how the banquet night went down, but the show remains pretty ambiguous as to the exact circumstances.

We know a couple key events, but not exactly how they came to pass. 

With a little bit of sleuthing we can work out a timeline to the photos. It’s unlikely Yuuri had the presence of mind to re-dress himself at any point during the banquet, so it’s a pretty safe bet that the more clothes he’s missing in the photos, the more time has passed. 

That means he must have danced with Yurio first (his shirt gets untucked and his jacket goes missing) then Victor (his shirt gets unbuttoned) then Chris (pants go first, then shirt).

Beyond that, the evening’s pretty open to interpretation. So how did the dance-off actually start?


Scenario 1 (the popular fanon): Yuuri challenged Yurio directly, wanting retribution for Yurio calling him a loser in the bathroom earlier that day.

Personally I’m not fond of this fanon.

In episode 2, when Yurio shows up, Yuuri smirks when he recognizes Yurio, as if he’s dealing with an angry child. In episode 3, when he’s training, he’s less worried about how his performance comparesto Yurio’s, and more worried about how it compares to Victor’s demonstration. 

I don’t think Yuuri has ever really viewed Yuri as a serious rival because he still sees him as a a kid. Yes, Yurio called him a loser after he came in last at the grand prix, and yes, that was a really low point for Yuuri, but I just don’t see Yuuri as the kind of person who’d demand a dance-off with a 14 year old junior league skater – no matter how despondent he was feeling, or how drunk he got.


Scenario 2: Flirty, tipsy flower-child Yuuri stumbled around the banquet hall saying, “Come dance with me!” to everyone in hearing distance. Yurio, for whatever reason, chose to interpret this friendly invitation as a DECLARATION OF WAR. 

Yurio immediately leapt onto the floor to bust out his sickest moves. Yuuri, delighted to have a dance partner, didn’t even realize a competition was taking place until he unfolded himself from a complicated break dancing handstand spin to find Yurio sulking in a corner over his “humiliating loss.”

Then Yuuri just rolled with it. “Competition? What a great idea, Yurio! I can redeem my loss!!! I get to pick my prize if I win!!!!! WHO WANTS TO TAKE ME ON NEXT?!!!?!!”

It cracks me up to imagine that Yurio actually brought the dance-off on himself. Yurio would, of course, continue to insist that Yuuri is the one who started it and that Yurio was coerced, until his dying breath.

ᵐᵐᵐᵐᵐᵐ ºʰ ᵐʸ ᵍºᵈ / ˢᵗºp fᵘͨᵏ'ⁿ ˡʸʸʸ'ⁿ 


Scenario 3: Belligerent, drunken diva Yuuri backflipped onto a table and challenged THE ENTIRE GODDAMN ROOM to a dance-off. And the people of townsville stared on in delight, for Yuuri’s brass balls grew three sizes that night, like some kind of champagne drenched sex grinch.

Now I like this scenario because there’s actually a few different ways it could have developed from that point onward.

Option A: Yurio heard the challenge and threw down, in much the same manner as described in Scenario 2 (see above).

Option B: Yurio snorted in disdain and tried to ignore Yuuri completely, but Victor wouldn’t let him. Victor, in fact, volunteered Yurio against his will, saying something to the effect of – “Come on! I know you’re not old enough to drink yet, so you might as well do something fun! Don’t just stand there pouting. Go dance! Do me proud! I’m taking lots of pictures!!!!”

Option C: Victor volunteered himself for a dance-off (of course he’d been eyeing Yuuri since he stepped in the room – Victor was intrigued, and needed to learn more). Yurio immediately grew incandescent with rage. In Yurio’s mind, Yuuri didn’t even deserve to be dancing in the same room as Victor, let alone in a dance-off against Victor. WTF was Victor doing?? Didn’t Victor know what a crybaby piggy loser Yuuri is?!? He diDn’T evEN MeDAL!!! 

So Yurio demanded that Yuuri take him on instead of Victor, determined to put Yuuri in his place.

(We know how well that turned out for Yurio).


Further thoughts:

Yuuri had already lost his pants when he started humping Victor’s leg. 

Based on the timeline I described above, that means this scene must have taken place after Yuuri danced with Yurio and Victor, but before he danced with Chris. 

Here’s a recap of the dialogue from the “Be my coach, Victor!” scene:

  • Yuuri: Victor… After this season ends, my family runs a hot spring resort, so please come. If I win this dance-off… You’ll become my coach right? Be my coach, Victor!
  • Victor: ~gasps~

So we can conclude that the pole-dancing with Chris wasn’t just for fun – it was a dance-off. 

Here’s the dialogue from the restaurant scene:

Yurio: I was dragged into a dance-off and got humiliated, too!
Yuuri: A dance-off? With Yurio?
Chris: I did mine with a pole dance, half naked.

“I did mine with” as in “I did my dance-off against Yuuri with.” Chris was the silver medalist, so it makes sense that Yuuri would have considered this dance-off with Chris the determining factor in whether or not he’d won the privilege of having Victor coach him.

Though I think we can agree that it was actually his dance with Victor that clinched the decision, whether that dance was intended as part of the competition or not.

i love reading the comment section on the Skam website after each clip gets published because you kind of get a feeling of what kind of audience Skam has.. and it’s people of all ages. I think that’s beautiful - that a show like Skam can attract such a diverse age group. 

I’ve seen old people on Twitter raving on about Skam and having discussions with people half their age about the show, or about Isak or Even and it’s just so amazing to see a show that can attract people of all ages and from all over the world to it.

It’s hard to find a good servant - Arthur Pendragon RP

Arthur: Merlin. What is this?!

Soo, @tinylilemrys and I noticed that there is a severe lack of bbc’s Merlin roleplayers. And we decided that we have to do something about that. And since my wig arrived today I simply needed to try out Arthur.
If you haven’t seen this show yet, go and watch it! Now. It’s amazing!

Sometimes I think about when I worked in a bookshop and some mansplaining American guy demanded I find him a book with ‘prespective’ in the title and would NOT accept that he was mispronouncing perspective even after I showed him the title on the database - even after I marched my little hobbit arse downstairs to fetch the fucking book and dumped it on the counter in front of him. Do you know what he said? DO YOU KNOW WHAT HE SAID? “Well that must be the British spelling.” I died. I’m dead now. I’m a ghost. An ex-bookselling ghost. Where are you now, prespective guy? I hope you’re well. 

anonymous asked:

I don't remember the exact details, but do you recall that interview with Sam where he was asked (I think) about being romantic and he said he tried? When asked if it was working his response was something like, ask me in 10 years. That jumped out at me as roughly the time he'd be done with OL. My take was he won't reveal much while still doing the show. Either to keep up whatever narrative is needed or to protect what he values from intense scrutiny. Or both.

That was at their second TCA interview, I believe. The comment itself, and the timing of the ten years until he would be free to talk about the topic does fit well with him and Cait being involved but being asked to keep things private by their employers whilst they were working together on the series-and also, as you point out, perhaps for their own desire for privacy as well.
By the time of that interview they had already been linked together by fans and by Google as well so it’s quite likely that everyone in that interview and many reading the transcript (the TCAs are not taped) knew exactly what “open secret” relationship was being discussed without being specifically mentioned.

the news about the american re-make of skam make me so sad… they’re going to turn it into another teen tv show when it is so much more than that
