“Stop stalling” - [Tom Hiddleston / Keanu Reeves - One shot ].

Based on: Imagine: Your best friend, Tom, getting jealous after finding out that you have a date with Keanu, so he shows up at your place and does the most random things to stall you. He’s so good at it, you actually end up arriving at the restaurant a little too late. Keanu thought you stood him up and left a few minutes before you got there.

She stood in front of the bathroom mirror, with nothing but a towel wrapped around her body after coming out of the shower, and she sang to herself as she brushed her hair.

The loud music coming from the speakers masked the sound of her ringtone but the vibration caught her attention, and she smiled when she saw the caller’s name on the screen.

“Tom”.


Tom exited the bookstore with a cup of coffee on his right hand and used his free one to scroll down on his phone and make a call.

“Hello?” she answered on the other line.

“How are you today, darling?” he asked with a smile.

“I’m good, love. I-”

As she kept on talking, she took many long pauses and Tom could hear her moving things around, maybe even throwing them.

“What are you doing?” he asked.

“I’m getting ready. I have a date tonight”.

Tom furrowed his eyebrows feeling a slight pinch of jealousy.

“What?”

“I have a date with Keanu tonight. Remember I told you I met him a few days ago?”

Tom pursed his lips and cradled the phone between his shoulder and ear to delve into his pocket and pull out the coffee receipt. He crumpled it near the phone over and over again.

“Darling? You’re breaking up I can’t hear you”, he lied.

“Tom? Okay, just… I’ll talk to you later. I have to get ready anyway. I’m leaving soo-”

He cut her off.

“Listen, I don’t know what’s going on but I was in the neighborhood”, a bakery’s sign caught his attention, glancing at it he added, “So I’ll drop by in a few minutes”.

Jeremy rushed out of the venue.

He couldn’t stay another minute mourning his nephew’s death after seeing The Clock’s most recent headline. He felt overwhelmed, confused, and frustrated. He marched towards his car, lighting a much needed cigarette on his way, before opening the door and getting in. He thought no one had noticed his impromptu departure but someone was watching from the balcony, someone who wasted no time in going after him to purposely make things worse.


Jeremy pulled up at his home, and got out of the car in a hurry, even left the engine running and the door open. He ran upstairs and went into his bedroom to grab a suitcase, place it on the bed, and started throwing a few clothing items into it before shutting it. He was about to exit the room again when he bumped into Sebastian who was just coming in.

“Good Lord!” Startled Jeremy exclaimed, “What are you doing here?”

Sebastian ignored the question and glanced at the suitcase in his right hand with a quirked eyebrow.

“Where are you going?”  

“I-I’m leaving”, the father stuttered while brushing past his son.

“Yeah, I can see that. Where to?” Sebastian inquired while following Jeremy down the staircase at the same speed, almost on his heels.

“The beach house. All of this has been too much. I just need to clear my head. It’ll be a couple da-”

“Don’t you mean you’re running away?” Sebastian asked, cutting him off as he pulled out a copy of The Clock from his back pocket and unfolded it in a slow fashion.

Saudade II

summary: Tom attempts to repair your relationship after spending a year pushing you away.

request: yes

warnings: slight angst

words: 1726

a/n: A couple of people mentioned a part two to Saudade and I liked the idea so here it is.

part one


The rain was tapping incessantly on his car window and the wind was shaking the trees lining the sidewalk. Tom stared at your apartment through the passenger window. His leg was shaking and fingers were tapping the steering wheel erratically as his mind raced. He was beginning to doubt himself; he debated driving off, but he knew he’d only be back.

He looked down at the bouquet of flowers laying on the passenger seat and frowned, wishing something so pretty could be more permanent. In two weeks time, the flowers would wilt and die. Before that though, they would have to brave the torrent outside, as he was sure the heavy rain would damage their fragile petals. It didn’t look like the rain was letting up any time soon, though, and Tom was only stalling at this point. After turning off the engine, sucking in a breath, and steeling his nerves, he stepped out of the car.

anonymous asked:

Omg could you do 110 and 114 with tom?!?

“Quit stalling. Where’s your father?” + “No more dogs. How hard it it to understand?”


“No, babe,” Tom said. “we shouldn’t get another dog.” You sighed, throwing yourself on his bed dramatically.

“But, Tom, why?” You dragged out the y in ‘why’, whining while you gave him a pleading look. “I’ll take care of it! Plus, they’re what keep me company when you’re gone! When you leave,” you got off the bed and knelt on your knees in front of him, your hands put together and your eyes growing to form a pout, “when you leave little ol’ me.” Tom rolled his eyes, standing up and pulling you up with him.

“Babe, no,” at that, Tessa came running in, “hello, darling.” He bent down, scratching behind her ears and nuzzling his face with hers. You knew that if he just saw the dog you wanted to bring home to welcome to your little family, he’d fall in love with her, too. You just had to get him to meet her.

“Tommy?”

No more dogs, (Y/N). How hard is it to understand?” He said in a mock-scolding tone. You rolled your eyes.

“I was going to ask if you’d accompany me to the mall,” he let out a small ‘oh’, and smiled sheepishly, nodding.

“Sure, Tess could use a walk, anyway.” With that, Tom put Tessa on her leash and held your hand in his free one, walking out to the car. Once you two had arrived at the mall, Tom told you he’d be back, needing to pick up something for Harry to congratulate him on his new film. You nodded and told him to text you when he was done, and that you’d tell him where to meet up. Once he was out of sight, you went straight to the pet shop, where you had found Moonlight, the cutest and smallest Corgi you’d ever seen.

“Hello, is Moonlight still here?” You asked the saleswoman, she nodded and asked if you wanted her to bring her out for you. “Has she been adopted?” She shook her head, and you smiled. “I’d love it if you brought her out, please!” Once she was brought out, you fell in love all over again, knowing Tom would love her, too.

Tommy Boy: Done! Where are you?

Me: Pet shop! Picking up some food for Tess. Wanna meet me here?

Tommy Boy: Sure thing, love.

And your plan was set in motion.

“Picking up some food for Tess, huh?” Tom tisked you softly, shaking his head when he saw the dog in your hands.

“Tommy! Look at her,” you turned her around fully, letting Tom view her completely. And at that moment, Tom swore he fell in love. He hadn’t felt this way about another animal other than Tess – Tess was obviously still his number one. She was family. But, Moonlight. Moonlight was new, small, a baby. He knew he was screwed. “Want to hold her?” He shook his head, mumbling that you both had to go. He knew if he touched the puppy, he’d ask to sign the adoption papers right then and there. You frowned, thinking your plan had failed. You gave Moonlight back to Olivia, the saleswoman, and bid your goodbye, following Tom out with hunched shoulders.


It had been a couple of days since Tom met Moonlight, and since, he had been a little distant – secretive. You thought you might have upset him by ambushing him, so you gave him his space. On the third day, you had just gotten back to his flat when you saw that his car was home, earlier than he was supposed to be home. You walked in cautiously, checking for any noise. You heard Tom pleading with something – someone – and you almost bound your ways upstairs, only to be stopped by Tessa. “Hey, pretty girl,” you mumbled, bending down to plant a kiss on her head. You stood back up to go up the stairs, but Tessa ran in front of you again. You narrowed your eyes at her and tried to go around, but she blocked your way again. “Quit stalling, Tess. Where’s your father?” You picked up a treat you had picked up at the market from one of the bags and tossed it toward the living room, bounding up the stairs while Tessa was distracted.

“Damn it to hell, baby, calm down.” You heard Tom whisper.

“Tom?” You heard him curse a soft ‘damn it, Tess’, seeing him pop out from behind the bed.

“Love! Back from the market already?” You nodded slowly.

“What are you doing home? I thought you were going somewhere with Harrison?” He shrugged, looking down at his feet. “What are you looking at?”

“Nothing!” He said quickly, but that lie was proven when a soft bark was heard, causing Tom to sigh. “What’s the use,” he mumbled, bending down to pick the source of noise up. “I wanted to surprise you, darling.” He stood up straight and in his hands, was Moonlight.

“Moonlight!” You screamed, setting the bags on the ground, running over towards Tom and plucking her out of his arms. “You went back to get her?” You looked at him with wide eyes, seeing him shrug with a shy smile, his cheeks a dusted tint of pink.

“I fell in love with her, and I knew you wanted her. I couldn’t say no to a new baby.” At that moment, Tess ran in, barking for the new dog. “Tess already loves her, too. They’ve grown quite attached.” You set Moonlight down, letting her run circles around Tessa while Tess chased her down the stairs.

“Tom,” you whispered, looking at him, “I love you. Thank you.” He rolled his eyes playfully, pulling you into a hug.

“Like I wasn’t gonna give in to you,” he said teasingly, kissing your cheek and then resting his head on top of yours, “I love you, too.”


i actually like this one, it’s cute lol

Day Two: Favorite Interview

Top Gear

One of my favorite Tom interviews is from 2014 when he was on episode 2 from series 21 of Top Gear.  Tom talked about his fear of heights while filming the Jaguar commercial in an open helicopter.

Tom told us about a school play where he played the front leg of an elephant while carrying Eddie Redmayne.  

Tom treated us to  impressions of Anthony Hopkins, Arnold Schwarzenegger, & Peter O’Toole.

I enjoyed when we got to the actual lap of the “Star in a Reasonably Priced Car” segment.  Tom stalled the car on his 1st attempt.  He also did some swearing & sang a little made up song while doing his lap.

I just really enjoyed the whole interview & his lap.

I love the behind the scenes of Tom’s lap that wasn’t shown on the Top Gear episode.

The big highlight for me from the behind the scenes was Tom & the umbrella.  I have never had that happen to me or never witnessed that before until seeing it happen to Tom.  I definitely think it was a 1st for Tom from the look on his face & all.  I can still laugh about it after all the times I have watched it.  I really don’t know the # of times I have watched Tom & the umbrella.  : )

Alternate Scene Season 2

[Everyone in the Library]

Richard Carlisle: Well if there’s no objections I think Lavinia [turns to Lavinia with a smile] has made a fairly good case why she and Matthew should get married  … so if there’s no objections.

Sybil: There is, because, I haven’t made mine yet!

[Sybil enters with Tom trailing behind as her Hype Man.]

Sir Richard: What? What’s your case?!

Sybil: Mary Crawley is my case! 

[Mary suddenly appears mysteriously from behind Tom]

Sir Richard: [Outraged] You can’t be serious?!

Tom: [Getting in Richards face] Oh she’s serious, baby. She’s Yahoo Serious. she’s Serious FM. Welcome to the world serious of seriousness sponsored by Honey Nut Seerioes!

Edith: [Looking between Tom and Sybil] Are you guys stalling right now?

Tom: Stalling? [Laughs] Stalling … no, m'lady! In fact you’re gonna wish that she was …

Sybil: [comes up from behind and whispers in his ear] I got it!

[Tom pushes Sir Richard out of the way so Sybil can stand in front of everyone] 

Sybil: [Clears throat] I want to say some names to you. Marie Antoinette, Jack the Ripper, Lavinia … [Everyone gasps]  What do they have in common? We don’t know them very well. What do we know about Lady Mary Crawley? We know she’s nuts.

Mary: Let her finish!

Sybil: We know she’s dangerous, unpredictable, selfish, we know she uses her name to make bad puns.

Mary: [As if giving the blessing of herself to everyone in the library] Mary Christmas

Sybil: When she talks, she over and under emphasizes words seemingly at random. When she eats, she holds her fork like a murderer’s knife, gnawing at it’s skewered payload like a deranged woodland rodent.

Tom: [From behind Sybil] Bring it home!

Sybil: We know she smells like an Italian Perfumery, we know she dresses like a Turkish Concubine, we know she exhibits, nay, flaunts proudly [Mary smiles ambitiously] obvious symptoms of over a half dozen disorders you wouldn’t wish on your worst enemy’s pets.

Tom: [from behind] Feel the heat!

Sybil: We know these things about Mary and so much more than we ever wanted to know about her. Why? Because it’s there. It’s on the surface. What you see may be what you don’t want but it’s also what you get.

[Everyone is in shocked silence]

Matthew: Wow …

Sybil: [Cross examines Lavinia] Who is this kettle corn popping phantom? This human question mark, this number 8 scoop of vanilla tapioca with a PhD in being swell and a Masters in “Everybody loves me”? Who is it?! We may never know. I only know one thing. Cousin Matthew: [Points to Lavinia] Nobody is this good a person…and [Present’s Mary] nobody can get any worse then this.

Edith: She’s right, She’s horrible.

[A Long pause of silence in the room]

Sybil: [Whispers over her shoulder] Now!

Tom: [Starts a slow clap]

Mary: [Joins in]

[Soon the whole family is clapping in encouragement.]

differentandstupidhuman  asked:

What about a fuc of genie of the lamp!marco and tom falling in love with him and trying to not make his 3 wishes just to not loose him

Awww! This was so cute and I actually had a lot more fun writing this than I thought I would! Thank you for the request! I hope you enjoy!

——————————————————————————————-

“Any suggestions?” Tom asked, there was a bit of a nervous tone in his voice. Marco rolled his eyes and hovered over the human.

“You ask that every time I bring this up and I always say no.” Marco reminded. Tom pretended to think for a moment.

“What would you wish for?” Tom asked.

“Tom their your wishes! I’ve been here six months, nobody’s ever taken this long.” Marco pointed out. “You have one wish left. Just make it.” Marco urged him. Tom crossed his arms and growled, he walked away from the genie.

“I have to think this through! It’s a big decision.” Tom hissed.

“You wasted your first wish on a sandwich!” Marco clapped back. Tom turned and hissed at the genie like he was a cat.

“Excuse me? WASTED? No, that was a good wish.” Tom assured. “That was a good sandwich and a good wish and I stand by my choice.” Tom told him. He plopped down on the floor and thought of his wish. How could he find a way to make this genie stay!? How could he make his third wish without sending Marco away, the person who has made the past six months of his life fun and extraordinary? And made him HAPPY. Tom sighed and played with the hem of his shirt. Marco sat down next to him.

“I feel like you’re stalling.” Marco finally admitted. Tom’s face flushed a deep red and he shook his head fast.

“Stalling? Why-why would I be um… stalling?” Tom asked, blushing a little more. He shuffled around and Marco shrugged. He didn’t want to admit that he was dreading Tom making his third wish as well. He liked the human… a lot.

“I don’t know why you’re stalling, but I feel like you re. Just make the wish so we can get going.” Marco joked. But he stopped when he saw a flash of hurt cross the human’s face. Tom looked away a bit angrily and threw his arms up in the air.

“Fine! If you don’t want to be here with me then I’ll just wish for another sandwich!” Tom grolwed. He took a few steps away from Marco. Marco came closer behind him and put a hand on the human’s shoulder, worried for his friend.

“Hey Tom? What’s wrong?” Marco asked. Tom turned around slowly and just looked at Marco for a long while. Finally Tom jumped up and hugged the genie. Marco was a little shocked at the sudden contact, it was strange, Tom always acted sort of pulled back. He wasn’t one to just tackle Marco in a hug, but here he was, cuddling close to him and grabbing at his shirt. Marco felt a horrible feeling in his chest when he thought he heard Tom let out a little cry. Like he was sad or pained.

“I don’t want you to go.” Tom whispered. Marco froze. He didn’t know what to think about this. None of his other masters have gotten attached like this. All of them made their wishes within a week! Some even a day! And here this boy was, being so cautious because he didn’t want him to leave. Marco bit his lip when he heard Tom crying again and he couldn’t help but scoop him up into a big hug. The two just pulled each other close for a while. Marco pulled back and brushed Tom’s hair out of his face, making the kid look at him.

“Tom I’m sorry.” Marco whispered. “It’s my job. It’s what I have to do.” Marco told him. “I’m sick of it too, if I could stay I would.” Marco promised. He wasn’t lying. He liked the human. They had fun together. After six months it was impossible not to get attached. Marco had never said anything. He just didn’t want to make it harder for him when Marco finally had to leave. But now Tom had messed that all up by telling him this. Tom shook his head and pulled away.

“I’ll just never make my wish!” Tom cried. Marco sighed.

“Tom do you really think that-”

Tom cut him off. “Yes! I do! Because I’ve been alone for a long time! And you come here and you care about me and you stay with me and you make me happy and I’m in love with you Marco! Please don’t go! I love you Marco!” Tom began to cry again and tears bubbled down his face. Marco’s eyes widened. He didn’t know the human felt that way. He didn’t know Tom would fall in love with him. Marco just thought that the feelings were one-sided.

“Tom I…” Marco trailed off and Tom just stood there. He looked away, totally embarrassed and mortified about what he had just admitted. Marco took a step forward and took Tom’s hand. “Tom I… I love you too.” Was all he could muster. Tom’s head shot up, tears were still falling down his feet. He moved closer.

“Please don’t make me make my last wish Marco I don’t want you to go! Please, don’t make me do it I don’t want to be alone again.” Tom cried. Marco pulled him into a hug and held the human close, soothing him.

“I won’t. You won’t ever be. Never again.”

You want a Tom and Jerry Willy Wonka crossover, here ya go

Tom is owned by Wonka, and chases Jerry who snuck in when the Oompa Loompas were deported over to Wonka’s factory from Loompaland.

Cat and mouse chase insues until Mr. Wonka has a day where he’s really depressed about finding an heir for the factory. So to help him, Tom tasks himself to find somebody while Jerry is mostly interested in the candy and chocolate involved.

They find Charlie and hang with him and then Wonka does the tickets thing. This gives them the idea to find a ticket for Chalrie and give it to him. They get one, try and take it to Charlie, but it gets lost, and winds up where Mike Teavee or Violet Beauregard lives.

Out of the ticket, they defeatedly go find Charlie but find a silver dollar and give it to him. Thus he gets the ticket. Slugworth yada yada, but no Tom or Jerry to be seen.

Tour day comes, cat and mouse chasing and Wonka runs late, tells Tom and Jerry to stall for him while he’s in the factory. 30 seconds of a cat and mouse trying to entertain a crowd, then Wonka comes. Tom and Jerry have to give the tour in certain areas becuase trouble arises in the factory during parts of the tour (ie the chocolate river needing to be cleaned, taste testing, the Wonkaboat breaks). This gets the kids to communicate with Tom and Jerry (however they can), and detours are made, like leading them into unlabeled rooms or random places by accident.

Wonka comes back, continues the tour until a certain point where everyone actually DOES use fizzy lifting drinks. Yet while this is going on, Grandpa Joe actually takes a tiny bottle.

Tom and Jerry lead the tour for a while and then each kid is taken out like before. Only when they get to the Wonkavision room, they get in the way with Mike who gets zapped, and they’re sent by Wonkavision. Think that whole scene from Tim Burton’s Wonka of Mike being chased and shit on the tv.

They get sent back, but Mike has to be stretched. Charlie meets with Wonka and Grandpa Joe gets in trouble for ACTUALLY stealing fizzy lifting drink. To apologize for him, Charlie gives up the Gobstopper and finishes the test.

Everyone gets in the elevator and all is good. Time skip to years later, Charlie is the new owner of Wonka’s and Tom and Jerry are still doing there thing but also chilling with candy everywhere.

Issues

Hi guys :D

Ok, so the next one is already done and this oen was missing just a few stuff that took a while. I still feel like it’s unecessarely long, but I decided to post liek this anwyays. And also forgive for some typos and mistakes, I’m not using my computer to post this… I tried to clean the most I could but there always one of two words escaping.

Anyways, this was @jantomweek Day 3 prompt: First Kiss

I had a completely different story in my mind first but… this one got a lot better even if the ending feels a bit rushed lol

I hope you enjoy! :)

Day 1 | Day 2 | Day 3 | Day 4 | Day 5 | Day 6 | Day 7 


Janna looked at the pink rose frowning. She could feel Star going on hype somewhere behind her looking at the rose directed to her with a shine in her eyes, Jackie was probably around also thinking it was rather cute. Starfan was probably sharing the happiness of Star of watching their ship come true…

As if.

She drew a very controlled breath, “What are you doing?”

“Didn’t you hear?” he said a bit annoyed, “I want to date you.”

Janna sighed her hand massaging the side of her forehead gently, “Tom, cut it off, this isn’t funny.”

“I’m not joking!” he said annoyed.

“Tom we hate each other.” Janna stated, “We can’t stand or agree in anything. In fact I punched you this morning just because I saw your face, remember?”

Coalesce

You slip on a black hoodie, tucking the empty right sleeve into your pocket, and pull up the hood to hide your face. You slip through the safe house quietly despite your injuries and look for things you’ll need. Paul and Patryk have gone out for supplies and you’re taking advantage of their absence to sneak out for a walk.

You weren’t supposed to be up but being bed ridden with your wounds was driving you up the wall. You were going stir crazy and you had to get out.

What if tom was a hired killer who has the mission of kill marco but he ends falling in love and presenting to marco like -hey, i was suposed to kill you, but i love you, i'm tom- fic idea

Okay I have to say this was so much fun! I loved writing it and I enjoyed writing the humor and fluff! I hope you love it!

——————————————————————————————-

“You said you’d have princess Marco neatly taken out and disposed of in a week.” Miss Heinous spoke. “It’s been six. Have him dead by tomorrow noontime or I’ll have you taken out myself.” She hissed at the demon. A few large guards were standing by her side. Tom gulped and nodded.

“Y-yes ma’am… it’s just hard when you have such specific requirements. How do you want me to do it neatly exactly? Maybe we should take some more time to-“ Tom tried to stall but One of the guards grabbed him by the collar and raised him off the ground.

“Let him down, Harris.” Miss Heinous commanded. “He has until tomorrow at noon.” She assured. She then leaned forward menacingly. “And if he doesn’t complete the task by then, I will leave you to it.” She spat. Tom nodded and saluted her.

“Yes Ma’am, of course. Right away.” Tom assured. He scurried to pick up his dagger and gun that she had him place on the desk in front of them. “Tomorrow at noon. I swear.”

————————————————————————————————————————————–

Tom sat on the roof of the human high school and played with his dagger. He didn’t like this at all. But there was really no way out. All he had to do was kill this guy! He’s killed so many before. Why was this one different? Why couldn’t he bring himself to do it? And why did he feel so weird around him!?

Tom snapped it of it when he heard the bell ring and the target make his way home. Tom took a deep breath and ran to catch up with him. Marco was walking home all alone. And it looked like he didn’t even see Tom following him. This should be really easy! But why wasn’t it. Tom jumped down around ten feet behind him as silent as possible; he was about to reach for his gun when something stopped him. It was like he was acting on impulse alone. He couldn’t bring himself to harm this human. Tom didn’t know why! Maybe it was his sweet smile. Or the way Tom felt so bubbly whenever he would laugh. Or maybe it was all the sweet and kind things he’s said that Tom overheard. But Tom couldn’t do it, so he did something else.

“Hi!” Tom called, and quickly wished he had stayed quiet. Marco turned around and waved, a bit confused.

“Hey there.” He laughed a bit; Tom felt his face flush a deep red. Marco came closer. “You need something?” He asked. Tom gulped.

“N-no… I just uh… had to um… t-talk to you about uh…” Tom trailed off, his face was burning red and Marco looked closer.

“Hey, you’re a demon?” Marco asked. Tom froze up.

“Oh shoot, that’s weird for you right?” Tom asked. Marco shrugged.

“I live with this girl Star Butterfly, so it’s really not all that strange.” Marco laughed. Tom did as well. He’s heard of the princess of Mewni, and as soon as she was mentioned Marco’s apathy towards seeing another species was understood. “So what did you need to talk about? Something to do with Star?” Marco asked. Tom shook his head and played with his gloves.

It would be so easy to finish him right there! But he couldn’t do it.

“Do you know a woman named Miss Heinous?” Tom asked. Marco nodded.

“She’s been after me for a long time. Why?” Marco asked, getting worried. Tom sighed and tugged at his horns nervously.

“She hired me. I’m an assassin and she hired me to kill you, but… I can’t do that.” Tom explained. Marco fell back and looked at the demon with a new horror in his eyes and face.

“You’re here to kill me!?” He cried. Tom shook his head.

“No! Well… I was but… please you have to believe me.” Tom begged. “I won’t hurt you.” He swore. Marco went to run away but Tom quickly jumped in front of him. “Please don’t run I promise I can explain everything!” Tom assured. Marco just screamed again and Tom put his hands over his mouth. “Just stop screaming! I’m not going to hurt you!” He cried. Marco just had a terrified look in his eyes as Tom had his hands over his mouth. “Oh my god this looks bad.” Tom realized. “I’m gonna let you go, promise to not scream and just listen! Please!” Tom begged. Marco gulped and nodded, Tom took his hand away and the human stayed there, still scared stiff though. Tom smiled extremely awkwardly.

“Hi. I’m Tom.” He grinned nervously. “I’m an assassin… and uh… I was supposed to kill you but I uh…” Tom trailed off and his face got red. “I think I like you.” He stated. “I think I REALLY like you.” He gave another nervous grin. Marco was now in a state between scared and confused. Tom blushed and ran his fingers through his hair. “Oh my gosh I sound so dumb! Look I know this is crazy and I hate to scare you like this… I’ve been watching you for a long time- wait that sounds creepy.” Tom stopped. “I swear it wasn’t like that! I was just trying to kill you!- Wait no that’s even worse.” Tom realized. “Look what I’m trying to say is-“ Tom was cut off when he heard a scream behind him.

“TOM!” It screamed. Tom whipped around and saw one of Miss Heinous’ guards. Tom’s eyes widened and his ears dropped.

“Oh no…” He whispered.

“Your time is up.” He growled. He grabbed the demon by the hair and yanked him up another guard seized Marco. “I should have known you’d fail. And I should have guessed you’d betray us. It’s just like a demon. You’re all sneaky treacherous snakes.” He hissed. Tom wiggled around and tried to get out of the man’s grasp as he raised a spear to Tom’s throat.

Just when he was prepared to feel the sharp pain he heard a loud yell. “WARNICORN STAMPEDE!” It screamed. Tom looked curiously at the blonde princess of Mewni jumped forward. She blasted the two guards away with one spell. The warnicorns trampled the guard and she kicked a pair of scissors over to Marco. He sliced through the air and Star raised her wand again at the two big men. “Emerald SNAKE STRIKE!” She cried. Green snakes came out of the wand and wrapped around the soldiers’ heads. Causing them to fall through the portal and Star closed it up. She ran to Marco and gave the human a big (and a little aggressive hug).

“Marco! I can’t believe I got here in time! I didn’t know what took you so long to get home and I just had a hunch that I should come find you!” She cried. Marco laughed a little and got out of her embrace.

“I’m fine Star. Thanks for the save.” He grinned, but trailed off and looked at the demon sitting on the ground, staring up at him. “Hold on.” He told his friend, and walked over to Tom. “Hey… are you alright?” Marco asked. Tom gulped and nodded. Marco helped him up. “You really weren’t kidding were you?” Marco asked. Tom shook his head. “You knew they’d kill you but… you still didn’t want to hurt me.” Marco recapped. Tom blushed and nodded again.

“I didn’t know what else to do except tell you.” Tom admitted. “I’ so sorry I’ll leave-“ Tom started but Marco stopped him.

“No!” He insisted. Tom looked back curiously, now it was Marco’s turn to blush. “Look um… those guards are going to come back for me, and you too now.” Marco warned. “It’ll be safe with us. We had Star and her spells, and lots of friends that will help. You should stay with us until it’s safe.” Marco suggested. Star came up behind them and nodded in agreement.

“I don’t know you, but if Miss Heinous is after you; you should stick with us, we’ve been fighting her off for a while.” Star grinned. “It’ll be safer.” She assured. Tom was quiet for a moment but nodded.

“Okay, I’ll stay.” He smiled. Marco couldn’t help but smile big at this.

“Great.” Marco held out his hand. “It’s good to have you one our team.”

I think your work on ASOIAF and the Dem primaries is fantastic. Re Sandor, I agree that Cleganebowl isn't fulfilling, but why would it be a cop-out for Sandor to turn out to be like William Munny in Unforgiven or Tom Stall in A History of Violence -- a man who simply cannot escape violence, even after trying to avoid it, and trying to repair himself. Like the scorpion that tries not to sting the frog carrying it across the river but does it anyway drowning both bc it's in his nature.

Thanks!

Because that’s not Sandor’s story. His is not a gunslinger narrative; it’s about self-healing. As many have noted, Sandor v. Gregor already happened back at the Hand’s Tourney in AGOT, and Sandor refused to attack his brother’s unprotected face. And since then, he’s struggled to move past violence and become the true knight he still, still, STILL wants to be. The Quiet Isle plot specifically is about Sandor giving up the Hound, the feasting-crow identity rooted in what Gregor did to him. Cleganebowl would be utter character regression, destroying one of ASOIAF’s most emotionally powerful and thematically central arcs.

Day Two: Favorite Interview 

Top Gear

One of my favorite Tom interviews is from 2014 when he was on episode 2 from series 21 of Top Gear.  Tom talked about his fear of heights while filming the Jaguar commercial in an open helicopter.

Tom told us about a school play where he played the front leg of an elephant while carrying Eddie Redmayne. 

Tom treated us to  impressions of Anthony Hopkins, Arnold Schwarzenegger, & Peter O’Toole.

I enjoyed when we got to the actual lap of the “Star in a Reasonably Priced Car” segment.  Tom stalled the car on his 1st attempt.  He also did some swearing & sang a little made up song while doing his lap.

I just really enjoyed the whole interview & his lap.

I love the behind the scenes of Tom’s lap that wasn’t shown on the Top Gear episode.

The big highlight for me from the behind the scenes was Tom & the umbrella.  I have never had that happen to me or never witnessed that before until seeing it happen to Tom.  I definitely think it was a 1st for Tom from the look on his face & all.  I can still laugh about it after all the times I have watched it.  I really don’t know the # of times I watched Tom & the umbrella.  : )
