up opening scene

You remember this? My dad and I used to build model airplanes. And this, this was my absolute favorite. Tenth birthday. This is a Nieuport 28. It’s the same plane Quentin Roosevelt flew in World War I. When you were about two years old, you got your hands on this, and you broke off one of the wings. I spent about an hour with a hot glue gun trying to fix it. It ended up in about 20 pieces instead of 2. Quentin, sometimes trying to fix something only makes it worse.

You’ve been doing well, and you’re enduring. You will be going forward. Plus you have me.

what i’m loving the most about this scene is that, despite the non-existent history between these two, emori and clarke create this very big contrast between each other: the one who wasn’t loved (emori) vs. the one who was loved (clarke), and the one who thinks they have no choice “you think i have a choice?” (emori) vs. the one who has realized that they always have a choice (clarke).

i love that clarke gets this very close view into emori’s life, because i always found it to be necessary for her to talk to someone on this level - more as an individual who gets to have a heart-to-heart, rather than a leader. it’s not just emori truthfully opening up in this scene about her experiences, insecurities and rage and other types of emotions, but also clarke, who is pushed into a rather sincere communication (if you look at things from her pov) which she initiates.

the things she shares with the audience and emori are so terrifyingly honest - e.g from the things she’s done as a leader and the fact that she can never understand what it feels like to be emori, to be truly alone; the conclusion she shares “but i do know what it feels like”, which harkens back to her first scene with abby where her mother tells her that “no. we have to make a choice” when clarke thinks they have no other choice than to just go along with whatever they need to do; the courage to embrace that truth about herself in these tiny steps; how the narrative highlights how she feels; and how her emotions in regards to her actions don’t even line up with the image of “the commander of death” that emori now places upon herself, because that title has always been less a descriptor of something clarke inherently is and more as something she’s perceived as due to what she has done. the writers make such good use of the “wanheda” image in this scene by poking holes into it, its pretty great imo.

and don’t even get me started on emori, i’m so down for that girl; she’s so different from any other character we’ve seen on this show so far - especially when you think of the things she was forced to do in order to survive, and how her view drastically sets itself apart from all the others in connection to those actions. anyone want a front-row seat for the time i express my weirdly endearing love for her? it’s for free, i promise. it makes all the more sense why she is so desperate on making this work out the way she planned it (not that i didn’t consider it before to be honest, but emori’s emotional expression put more truth into everything imo), and the twist is mind-freezing because it’s emori who propels the story into a whole new dimension for me, and you’ve got to have some serious talents in order to do that with a viewer like me, just saying, lol.

anyway. essentially this moment is functioning as such a great worst-case scenario for two characters who put themselves out there. it’s really fascinating.

i mean, i don’t even know what the point of this post is anymore, i’m kinda drifting. but i really love that clarke just gets to be clarke in this scene by creating a contrast to emori, who just gets to be really hardcore emori in this moment. their interaction creates such a great conflict in which you understand both.

Opening Scene of the TV Show

A close up of Doc Marten clad feet walking over wet grass. Slowly panning out to reveal a girl in bright coloured tights and what looks like a home made dress, and a hoodie with thumb holes in the sleeves.

Shes carrying a bouquet of flowers. We can see now she is weaving in and out of headstones, shes in a graveyard. 

She stops in front a grave, we only see it from the back, her looking sadly at the words the audience cannot see.

She kneels down and places the flowers in front of the grave. She wipes tears from her eyes and smiles sadly.

“I miss you all the time you know” She looks at her watch revealing the date April 25th. “I can’t believe its only been a year since this all began….and now its over”

FLASH BACK TO ONE YEAR AGO

Blue Sargeant wakes up in bed and the series begins….

Basically its like a shout out, all the fans of the books know who the grave belongs to, but the non-readers will be like wtffff who died?? Setting the tone for the series that SHIT IS GONNA GET REAL.

The show runs for 4 seasons, one for each book. The end of the last episode we end up back at the graveyard. The grave is revealed to be Noahs, Blue is joined by Gansey, Ronan, Adam and Henry. Adam and Ronan are holding hands. Gansey throws an arm around Blue and asks “Ninos?” And the five of them walk away together. There is a shadow of a character walking beside them…is it Noah?? Maybe! END CREDITS

By then Maggie will have published her new trilogy. The series is renewed for another 3 seasons. And its amazing. Thank you and Good night.

Imagine if Jim gives Eurus a key and she always drops in unannounced at the most inconvenient times:

When Jim’s fucking his favourite escort and Eurus comments on the guy’s remarkable resemblence to Sherlock

When he’s been singing show tunes in the shower, and comes out of the bathroom to find her sitting on the bed

When he’s welling up over the opening scene of Up

When he’s negotiating a price and that momentary distraction makes him lose out on 2 million pounds

When he’s directing his sniper, who misses the kill shot because Jim leaves it one second too late to issue the order

When he’s masturbating over watching Sherlock on the hidden cameras at 221b

When he’s watching Mamma Mia and dancing around the lounge.

When he’s sad and lonely and the genuine smile he gives her before he can stop himself is really embarrassing

I think I have a thing for platonic Euriarty.

can you all relax about attacking disney for not putting finn on the poster or more than briefly in the trailer like think for just 1 second maybe 1) its a teaser trailer they dont want to reveal much so they dont wanna show how/when/in what capacity finn wakes up yet 2) hes not on the poster bc the core characters are!! there are 3 people on the poster all of whom are supposedly the most central to the plot of episode 8 like 90% of the cast isnt on that poster i get that you all love finn and like me. too. but it makes plenty of sense that he isnt on the poster when disney wont stop saying that episode 8 is about luke so ofc the poster is just gonna have the main character, the central character, and the central characters main source of conflict

WC Forging Through Camp Nano Series: Part Three

Hi everyone!

Welcome to the third segment in the Forging Through Camp Nano series! I hope that all of your projects are going well and that any writer’s block has been kept at bay! This post, we’ll be talking about a slightly different issue that may impact your word counts…

Plot snarls! This time, I would like to…

1. Discuss what a plot snarl looks like
2. Mention a few different kinds of plot snarls
3. Give some potential fixes for both first draft writers and rewriters

By now, I’m sure you’ve gotten used to finding your chunk of salt. Hold onto it tight for this discussion.

Ready? Let’s dive in!

WHAT IS A PLOT SNARL?

Consider this example. A writer is blazing past the halfway mark of their epic high fantasy novel. They’ve reached a fairly major battle scene taking place between the protagonist and an enormous monster of terrifying power. The aforementioned writer has been dying to write this scene and breezes through most of it with glee.

That is, until the protagonist goes to swing their “Sword of Ultimate Power…”

…And the writer realizes that said sword sank into the Swamp of Despair five chapters ago.

Can anyone else relate?

A “plot snarl” is my term for any difficulties in the writing process that arise due to inconsistencies in characterizations or the plot of a story. Basically, these problems typically pop up unexpectedly and cause you to do this:

Plot snarls are different from writer’s block, however, in that they do not necessarily interfere with your ability to continue writing. Yes, bumping into a snarl may very well induce a case of writer’s block, But usually, you can take action to repair (or at least temporarily alleviate) a plot snarl.

Before we can take action though, we need to know what we’re looking for. Let’s start by discussing the different kinds of plot snarls.

Thea walked through the garden near the palace, in awe of the beauty around her. Just like her mother she’d grown fond of nature and the beauty it beholds. In the midst of her nature viewing, she didn’t realize the person sitting down and tripped over their legs, catching herself and now laying on them.

“Damned! Um.. Sorry I guess.” 

First Kiss

 Prompt from loonyloopy : Cullen/Quizzie in the snow. 

After searching for the Inquisitor, Cullen ends up taking a bold step forward. 

 —-

Cullen urged his horse onwards, his eyes narrowed against the blinding white of endless snow. Having Skyhold surrounded by mountain may have been a wise tactical move but it made it bloody impossible to find the Inquisitor when she went wandering. He called out to her again. His own voice echoed back.

With another curse, he followed the set of tracks that zig-zagged towards the summit. Halfway to the top, he abandoned the mount, not wanting to strain the poor creature.

“Inquisitor!” he yelled through cupped hands.

Anxiety gnawed up through his gut towards his heart. If she was alone… These mountains were still relatively unknown—caves, pitfalls, unseen crevices: never mind the risk of bears or brigands.

Maker’s breath; why had no one gone with her?!

Cullen scaled the mountain as fast as his legs could push, his armor jangling in his ears with every step. How long had she been gone? He’d carried her near-frozen body once already. He didn’t have the strength to do it again.

Inquisitor!

He reached the peak with heaving lungs. The whiteness of the valley blinded him. He called to her again. Agonizing heartbeats passed.

“Cullen?”

It was a faint whisper barely heard over the wind. He half-wondered if he’d heard the sound at all.

There.

It should have been me. It was all my fault. No, it wasn’t. It was an accident– No, it wasn’t. And now Haley’s in surgery and even if she makes it, the baby could– She could still lose the baby.
