when it gets dark

Why “Beauty and the Beast” was actually pretty great:
  • the music is not good, it’s great
  • production design, costumes (even the freaking yellow dress which is actually quite gorgeous on camera), everything is truly beautiful and quite breathtaking at moments
  • the acting was surprisingly wonderful. it’s disney, it’ll be cheesy at moments—but for the most part, it was terrific
  • this is not a childish adaptation
  • when it gets dark, it gets DARK. 
  • g a s t o n
  • new songs! new character development! 
  • the cgi is not even that bad. in fact, there are moments when it’s pretty seamless. the practical sets and effects compensated for it, in my mind.
  • and when it’s wonky? you won’t care because you’ll be too busy smiling
  • there is some hilarious shit in this movie
  • the beast’s expressions are actually amazing; you can really see the actor moving beneath them 
  • T H E    M U S I C
  • you get to see little kids and adults all freaking out the whole time
  • SIR IAN MCKELLEN PLAYS A CLOCK AND IS AWESOME AT IT
  • emma watson will make your heart stop she is so beautiful
  • sneaky political/ethical gestures that made me cheer
  • this movie is so pure and we need that right now
  • and by the end? i just started laughing and crying—in excess joy. i couldn’t believe it. i’ve never been moved by a movie like that in my life.
  • it won’t please everybody but if you loved the original and if you are prepared to attempt to enjoy it for what it is—a colorful, painterly, vibrant adaptation of a beloved story—then go watch it.

Marry your best friend. I do not say that lightly. Really, truly find the strongest, happiest friendship in the person you fall in love with. Someone who speaks highly of you. Someone you can laugh with. The kind of laughs that make your belly ache, and your nose snort. The embarrassing, earnest, healing kind of laughs. Wit is important. Life is too short not to love someone who lets you be a fool with them. Make sure they are somebody who lets you cry, too. Despair will come. Find someone that you want to be there with you through those times. Most importantly, marry the one that makes passion, love, and madness combine and course through you. A love that will never dilute - even when the waters get deep, and dark.

Most of the intelligence community doesn’t believe he exists.

Eventually, all the bad things go away. You will always heal no matter how dark and depressing things get when it comes to life and love. You may not see the light at the end of the tunnel, but I promise you it’s there. You need to encourage yourself to keep on going because one day you’re going to look back and you’ll be glad you didn’t admit defeat.

here i am again, at 3am, writing another poem about you. i don’t know what it is about this time of the night that inspires me to spill my soul on a blank canvas, but you’re probably the culprit. i blame you for giving me all these beautiful colors to paint the world with, i blame you for causing my heart to beat irregularly during regular conversation, i blame you for illuminating my senses like neon lights in a dark room, i blame you for giving me a different dimension of beauty that goes beyond the norm. so maybe the reason, i write at 3am is because when it gets really dark and quiet, and all i have to myself is my thoughts, the only thing that really makes sense is you, and the beautiful person that you are. and for that reason alone, 3am is becoming my favorite time of the day.

So I got too lazy to get off the couch today and got stuck watching dancing with the stars. 

While watchingI came up with the idea for my public au that dancing with the stars has a dancing with the nations season and normally the nations dance with one of their civilian dancers but some weeks they have to team up ( which results in double elimination) This is the week that America and England team up their doing the Quickstep.

I tend to get drawn to dark roles. When I’m looking for a role, I always have to find something true that’s in myself that I can put into the role. I’m not saying I’m really dark or anything, but it’s about finding that vulnerability. Everyone has vulnerabilities that they maybe don’t want to share. You find yourself being drawn to characters that are somehow similar to yourself or have gone through things that you’re going through or you can relate to them somehow.
