yeah this is the ven one

Some Highlights from “The Music of Rogue One” Panel at SWCO17 (aka the panel that blew my mind)

So since I can’t find any filmed version of the “Music of Rogue One” panel with David W. Collins I’ll post some of the highlights here. I’m a music theory nerd myself but I was surrounded by people who have never paid attention to music analysis and were still moved to tears so I encourage everyone to check this out (and watch the panel please if it’s ever made available.)

  • the Panel began with Collins discussing the legacy of John Williams and the Star Wars main theme specifically. He discussed how it was originally meant to be Luke Skywalker’s theme, and how that interpretation can still hold true considering Star Wars is the Skywalker Saga
  • The coolest thing pointed out re the main theme is that it’s musical construction mirrors the structure of the Hero’s Journey, the monomyth structure that all of Star Wars revolves around. It rises suddenly with the call to adventure, then builds with the journey, drops during the abyss, is reborn with another musical rise, then returns to the beginning. Collins emphasized that Williams is without a doubt a musical genius and that Michael Giacchino had a big challenge in making a score that lived up to William’s legacy while standing on it’s own. This was a challenge he more than met, as this panel made clear.
  • Now moving on to Rogue One, Collin’s discussed the title theme “Hope.” This theme is clearly heard over the title of the film, during Jyn’s big speech to the Rebellion, and throughout the film.
  • Collins pointed out that, like the main Star Wars theme, “Hope” echos the structure of the film itself. There are heroic major key moments in the theme, but it ends in a melancholy way that almost sounds unfinished. It represents the sacrifice at the center of the film. This is a story of incredible heroism that merely paves the way for others to finish the journey. 
  • Collins moved on to discuss the musical themes for each character in Rogue One, with a lot of focus on Jyn’s theme. Jyn’s theme is the most frequently heard piece along with “Hope” in the film. In fact, we hear it three times in the film’s prologue alone.
  • The fascinating thing Collins pointed out is Giacchino’s use of Dies Irae throughout the score. Dies Irae, or Day of Wrath, is the medieval hym describing the end of the world. It is sung during funeral masses and musically is quoted widely to represent death
  • EVERY CHARACTER THEME IN ROGUE ONE IS STRUCTURED AROUND DIES IRAE. Jyn, Chirrut, Baze, even Krennic, ALL OF THEM
  • Giacchino was signaling from the beginning that this is a story about death. He wrote the sacrifice of these characters right into their themes.
  • A notable use of Dies Irae beyond character themes is it’s repetition as Cassian and Jyn begin to climb the tower in the archive during the climax. The first two notes of Dies Irae are repeated as they do so. When Krennic walks down the hallway with his Death Troopers, all three notes play (death literally chasing them). And when Jyn almost drops, than catches the data tapes, Dies Irae is replaced by “Hope”
  • Jyn’s theme in particular is a melancholy theme centered on Dies Irae, but with a lovely, lullaby like feeling. It tells you from the beginning that Jyn’s is a story of hope and inspiration but also death and sacrifice.
  • An interesting use of Jyn’s theme and “Hope” together is during Jyn’s speech to the Rebellion. First we here “Hope” swell as Jyn speaks to the Rebels. Then when her speech is shot down, the theme drops, replaced by Jyn’s theme. This represents that it is Jyn herself who inspires the sacrifice that will eventually bring on the Hope. Jyn is the hope.
  • Another mind blowing moment was a musical parallel that Collins pointed out with the character of Bodhi Rook. In the scene where he recalls his mission, repeating “I’m the pilot, I brought the message,” listen for the flutes. That exact same flute theme plays in A New Hope when Luke discovers Leia’s message hidden in R2. By doing this,  Giacchino is directly mapping the journey of “the message.” Bodhi receives the message of the Death Star and how it can be destroyed from Galen, he brings it to Jyn, who with Rogue One, transmit the message, which ends up in the hands of Leia, then to R2, then to Luke, who must return it to the Rebellion. Those flutes represent the origin of the message with Bodhi through to A New Hope.
  • This panel was full of mind blowing moments, but the most mind blowing moment by far was another musical connection to A New Hope. After we had become very familiar with Jyn’s theme over the course of the panel, Collin’s played a scene from A New Hope for us. It was the moment when Obi-Wan asks Luke to come with him to Alderaan and Luke resists. When Obi-Wan says he’s getting too old for this sort of thing, Jyn’s theme plays clearly under Luke’s hesitation. In the original context, a hint of Dies Irae was WIlliam’s way of foreshadowing Obi-Wan’s death, but after Giacchino used that musical queue to build Jyn’s theme, it suddenly has deeper meaning. It’s Jyn’s sacrifice calling to Luke, compelling him to be the hope she fought for. And it is connecting Obi-Wan’s eventual sacrifice with that of Jyn and her comrades.  
  • Collins also highlighted how Giacchino’s score for the final moments of the film, from Jyn’s confrontation with Krennic through the arrival of Vader and the death of Jyn and Cassian, is unconventional and incredibly effective. Jyn’s confrontation with Krennic is silent, no music, unexpected for such a key moment. Only when Cassian appears does the music return. And throughout the final sequence, as we witness horrifying destruction, death. the arrival of the Death Star and Vader’s Star Destroyer, the score stays distant, gentle, melancholy. It does not highlight the horror. It steps back and mourns over it, like the eyes of history or the Force itself, honoring the sacrifice. 
  • So yeah Giacchino’s score for Rogue One is brilliant, Williams’ music for Star Wars is brilliant, this panel was brilliant, and I can never get enough of analyzing Star Wars scores.

Do you ever think that terra and ven would do that thing where one sits on an air mattress and the other jumps on it? terra goes like two feet and ven hits the fuckign ROOF

LMAO YEAH 

rip ven and ceiling

Colin you just spent 100 minutes lecturing me about how your job is just Sooooo Difficult to do and how you’re the only one who can do it right and yet you’re just like “yeah lmao whatever you can try your hand at this restoration work who gives a fuck”

but do you?

Adelaide: Gramma wants to know what size

Me: whatever the smallest is. Venti?*

Adelaide: The small one. Grendler?

Me: It’s ven-tee. It’s Italian. [as though that information means anything to her]

Adelaide: Brentlee?

Me: VEN-TEE.

Adelaide: Got it.

Me: Um… ok


*yeah, I’m not a regular coffee drinker, so I forgot this was the opposite of the smallest … but having my mother hand me a horse trough full of coffee definitely jogged my memory

where the fuck is xehanort’s nobody

also while watching bbs

IS NO ONE GOING TO ADDRESS THE FACT XEHANORT PULLS A SORA AND PROBABLY HAS A NOBODY OTHER THAN XEMNAS RUNNING AROUND

okay so. sora releases his heart using the keyblade of hearts in kh1, creating a little shadow and roxas. we know a strong heart, when lost/released, leaves a nobody behind. nomura has said that there is no concept of death in kingdom hearts. so, if xehanort stabbed himself with his own keyblade and released his heart, and death isn’t a thing in kingdom hearts, THEN WE BETTER FUCKING SEE SOME NOBODIES OF XEHANORT AND ERAQUS

i mean, we can reasonably assume the guardian that attaches to terranort (and later ansem sod) is xehanort’s original heartless. it has all the features of a pureblooded heartless, and its facial structure is similar to xehanort’s. and we know that a powerful enough dark will like maleficent’s can control heartless. since xehanort is, like, fucking satan, yeah, i’d say he can control a heartless (i mean, he’s shown controlling neoshadows against ven so)

so, according to kingdom hearts’ own canon, the body and soul xehanort left behind when he freed his own heart should be meandering somewhere. also, there is reasonable evidence to support the theory that a nobody can house a heart aside from their “replacement” one (see: ROXAS AND VENTUS COUGHCOUGH), and we know fragments of a heart can be placed into a nobody.

anyway what i’m saying is master xehanort totally resurrects himself as top bitch through his own nobody, and xemnas better move the fuck over

M is for Marriage

According to the laws of England, you must be married a full year before you can file for divorce.

Harry’s well aware of this, as is Eggsy, because it comes up during their briefing several times, offered up as a point of contention if Eggsy so wishes to protest against this ludicrous mission.

“It’s a full year of being legally married,” Merlin warns, “under your real names.”

Eggsy shrugs. “It’s just on paper, yeah? It’s not like it’s going to change anything important.”

“Of course not,” Harry says, and the words are cold and sour on his tongue.

anonymous asked:

Honestly I wouldn't count drive forms as they're just palette swaps and depend on the default outfit in the world. And I wouldn't count Xion, Roxas, or Vanitas as they are them and no one else.

Yeah, I wouldn’t have included the Drive Forms for exactly that reason. I just wanted to fit as many of Sora’s unique outfits as I could in one doodle. I missed a couple, but I think I did all right! Hahaha

H2OVanoss - King For A Day Part 2

You’re all darling people, sorry for the wait! 

Yes, I made Moo older. He looks older than most of the banana bus squad.

Please, look at the tags at to see the pairings within!

Chapter 2: cause you and i, we were born to die

Brock sighed for the twentieth time.

“Hold still, you two.” He warned as he dropped his hands firmly in a clamp onto identically clad shoulders.

“Sorry.” Evan scuffed his footagainst the floorboards. “It’s hard.”

“Yeah, what he said.” Tyleryawned, stretching his arms above his head. “But we can’t help it, Brock. We’re bored out of our minds. How long do we have to stand here?”

“Think of it as practice.” The football player advised. “We’re going to be in a lot of meetings like this when we get older.”  

“This sucks.” The bespectacled boy pouted. “I’d rather –”

And a sharp, high pitched yell caused them all to jump.

“DELIRIOUS! YOU BUTTHEAD!”

“I DIDN’T SHOVE YOU THIS TIME, FOURZERO!”

“YOU TOTALLY DID, DELIRIOUS!”

“DID NOT!”

“DID TOO!”

The three boys looked at each other in surprise, not expecting that there were other children in the den of the adversary of their boss.

“They’re outside.” The older boy spoke as he turned towards to the window, his dark eyes focused on the scuffle outdoors.

“I wanna see!” Evan threw his arms up at him, and Tyler mimicked him.

With a smile, Brock effortlessly scooped them both up, balancing the young pair against his hips to peer out the pane of glass.  “There. Now hang onto the windowsill.”

A group of boys no older than Brock were out playing in the freshly trimmed grass. The oldest one was lying on his side, busily entertaining a four year old sitting next to him with a pile of toy cars.

But who had caught Evan’s eye was the deathly-pale skinned boy locked off in a standoff with a tanned, blond one. He was skinny, with the sleeves of his blue sweater pushed up over his elbows as he leaned back in a clumsy fighting stance. His ice blue irises flashed with challenge as he seized up his partner. “I didn’t shove you, Fourzero, I swear.” His voice was gratingly haughty.

“Oh, so the wind did it, Delirious?” the other sneered childishly, running a hand through his dirty blond hair.

Delirious rolled his baby blues. “I don’t care who did it, but I didn’t do it. Maybe Lui did.”

“Lui’s four, dumbass. He can’t even reach his bed.” The third of the trio spoke, sighing. He had been sitting cross-legged on the ground next to them. “Just apologize to Scotty and be done with it, Delirious. I want to play soccer.”  

“Yeah, just do it.” Scott mocked. “Apologize to– oof!” He wheezed as he was tackled by the brunet to the ground.

Expertly, he had pinned his friend on the floor, and Fourzero thrashed around wildly, trying to free myself to no avail.

He let out a victorious shout. “Start counting, Marcel! I got him down!”

“Get off of me, Delirious!” Fourzero cried out, flailing helplessly as he tried to throw him off. “You’re so fat!”

“-ven, eight, nine, ten! Delirious, you won!” The one named Marcel crowed gleefully, throwing himself into the pile of wriggling limbs.

“Told y'all I could beat him someday.” Delirious giggled madly as he tried to fend off Marcel’s slaps to his back. “Will you quit it, Basically!”

“Brock, can we play with them please?” Tyler tugged on his shirt, his mischievous expression replaced with one of childish pleading.

“Yeah, can we, Brock?”  Evan joined in, pulling on his t-shirt sleeve. “We promise to be good.”

“I…” Before the eleven year old could complete his sentence, the door across the hall swung open, startling Brock enough to tighten his grip on the two little boys he carried aloft. A deeply tanned man stepped out, a man that wasn’t Tyler’s dad. Instinctively, Evan and Tyler went on alert, watching the man with wary eyes as they clung fearfully to the football player.

“I thought I heard voices.” The tanned man gave them a generous smile of white teeth. His face was kind, and he gestured to the window they had been staring out of. “I didn’t realize you brought your children, old friend.”

“I want them to observe,” Came the terse reply as Tyler’s dad stepped into view. An imposingly tall man with a cruel jaw stepped into view. Evan fought the urge to bury his face into Brock’s sleeve – his boss always made him nervous. “I want them to learn their roles early on.”

“There’s plenty of time ahead of them to observe and learn, old friend.  Let your boys play with mine. Let them be children. There is plenty of time to turn them into the men we want them to be.“ He held out his hands, his blue eyes pointedly soft towards the frozen trio in the corner. “Go on. They’re usually friendly.”

"Don’t be ridiculous.” Their boss scoffed. “You clearly haven’t changed. Why would I let my boys near yours?”

“Why not?” The other man rolled his eyes, an action that was reminiscent of Delirious. “They’re just kids”

“This isn’t a playdate, old friend.” His harsh voice dripped with sarcasm. “And you know what? We’re done here.” He straightened up, and strode rudely down the hall towards the entrance without so much of a backwards glance. “Let’s go. Come, Brock.”

Obediently, the curly-haired football player followed, still toting the two younger boys in his big arms.

Evan took one last long look out the window at the group of merry boys beyond his reach, and a pang of longing ran through his veins as they slowly disappeared from view.

It wasn’t fair.

“So, where do you think we should go have lunch, Evan?”

He gave his head a little shake. “Sorry, Brock, what’d you say?”

“Did you see something?”  

“Naw.” The Asian man shrugged truthfully. “I just zoned out.”

“Okay. I’m going to go in and check on the Terroriser. Do you want me to send Tyler out to keep you company?”

“Do as you please.” Evan waved him away. “As long as I don’t have to go in there.”

“Done.” Moo Snuckel laughed as he made to duck back into the store. “I’ve probably tortured him enough. That’ll teach him to steal my car for a joyride.”

“You know it won’t!” The Asian sniped back playfully. He leaned back against the cool glass, lazily watching the Christmas shoppers pass him with their oversized bags of presents. He was in a good mood today. Everything was falling into all the right places. Tyler’s dad was finally going to abdicate his position in a few short days, and Tyler himself was going to rise from underboss to being the boss to take his place. Moo was going to be his underboss, and he, Vanoss, was going to be his consigliere.

To say he was excited was an understatement. He was finally going to assume the position he trained for his entire life – he didn’t have to be a capo anymore, though he hadn’t minded the job. He had enjoyed the running around and the risking of his life for work, but he was happy to put that behind him. He vastly preferred the planning side of things, and it brought in better money too.

He ran a hand through his hair and yawned. Plus, it was easier to keep an eye on Mini and Brian who were still capos in the game.

A loud voice almost next to him startled Evan out of his thoughts. His senses on hazy alert, he scanned the open area, his dark eyes scanning for his interruption, and his vision fell upon a group that just came out of a store on his left.

“You guys have to stop. My stomach hurts.” A vaguely pretty girl giggled. She was tiny compared to the rest of them. “Next time I’m bringing Ptesh or Janet with me to shop instead.”

“Aww, come on. We told you the first time we took you out years ago that we aren’t that bad.” The curly-haired one whined.

“Yeah, we told you so.” The blond one saucily waggled his eyebrows. “Now, I’m interested in some new kicks. Who’s coming with?”

“Not me.” The fourth of their group spoke tiredly. “I’m beat.” An accent that Evan couldn’t place tinged his exhausted voice. A sweet shiver ran down his spine, and he slowly inclined his head to catch a glimpse of him through his mirrored aviators.

Evan wasn’t disappointed, and unconsciously he licked his lips at the sight of the third man.

He was pale – porcelain, Evan would think up later. His brown hair was practically cropped short to his head. He had a generous mouth framed with barely-pink lips, and he wore a two-toned grey hoodie. His irises were a faded pale blue, and his expression was one of pure painted boredom.

Vanoss was mildly impressed at the amount of disdain in the man’s expression.    

“Aw man, you can’t be, Jonathan. It’s only been three hours.”

He bit his bottom lip, and Vanoss had to suck in a quick breath at the man’s action.

He released the appendage to speak. “I want food.” He complained with a pout on his face, his face transforming from one of mundane aloofness straight to one of childish petulance. “I haven’t eaten all day, Marcel.”

“We’re almost at the food court, man.” The man called Marcel dismissed. “You can hold out a little longer and then we’ll get a bite to eat, okay?”

“Whatever. I’m not going inside, though.” He slouched moodily next to Evan, taking no notice of him. “I’ll just wait outside.”

“That’s a good thing, since I was planning on buying you new shoes.” The girl grinned brightly, and she leaned in conspiratorially as the other two men bounded into the store that Brock, Brian and Wildcat were in. “I’ll try to make them be quick, but you know how they are.”

He waved her away. “I may just wander off and feed myself. Go join them.”

As she disappeared into the store after them, Jonathan sighed heavily.

“God, I hate shopping.” He muttered, seemingly to himself.

“Me too.” Evan agreed with him, and the blue-eyed man cast him a glance.

“You been dragged here too?” He snorted as he turned to face him properly, his pupils giving the Asian a quick once over.

“My family’s been in there for an hour already.” Evan shrugged, pretending not to notice the man’s scanning of his body. “They haven’t even found a pair for themselves yet.”

“Oh, for fuck’s sake.” He buried his face in his hands. “They’re never gonna leave.”

“I’m Evan.” He shot the other man a half-smile that was meant to charm his socks off. “The guy with a big enough truck to load all of their crap in.”

The man let out a rusty laugh that settled too comfortably in the back of Evan’s brain. “Jonathan.” He returned the smile with a genuine one of his own.  “The guy who’s the designated bag carrier who doesn’t have any bags yet.”

“Nice to meet you.”

“Likewise.”

Evan let a pause settle in before he dived in for the kill. He pushed himself off of the glass window of the shoe store to face the other man.

“Wanna go grab a bite to eat?” He said mischievously, a smirk etched onto his face, bouncing his weight from one foot to another. “I doubt they’ll notice. I’ll buy.”

Jonathan groaned and his stomach rumbled loudly, causing the Asian to snicker.

“Man, I thought you’d never ask.”

To be continued…

I do apologize that there isn’t much happening here. But it is all buildup to the plot.

Thank you so much for your patience <3 please, if you liked it, <3 it and drop me a comment [here].

My boss: wow you really knew what you were doing
Me: oh yeah I kind of like solving puzzles
*intense war flashbacks to crying over the HAU chemistry puzzle, the VEN tunnel puzzle, the LIE pomegranate puzzle, etc*

Continuation from here | @quiescentgale

Cindy?  What business would Ven have with her?? He knew the girl mechanic had taken a liking on the blond boy, treating him almost like a little brother every time they stopped by, but still? And what did it have to do with their current conversation?
Oh well, he was desperate for a change of topic anyway, so he certainly wouldn’t complain!

           “Y-yeah, sure! You can take all the time in the world! I mean, we’re in no hurry and… yeah. Hm.” Did he really think he could hide his nervousness? Well, flash news: he couldn’t.

He kept his eyes on the road. Driving being a wonderful excuse for not looking at Ventus right now. With that method, he could pretend the way Ven treated all this with candid innocence wasn’t embarrassing as hell. Though for his beating heart and that knot in his stomach, he could do nothing.

           “Well, that’s… that’s good to hear. Not sure I can picture any situation where you being in a dress or not could have anything to do with anything – or lemme tell you, that would mean we’re infiltrating a damn weird place. But… thanks?” he somehow managed not to choke on a hysterical giggling fit when he added, “I’d wear a dress too if that meant saving you.”

All jokes aside though, he really would do anything to keep Ventus safe. Ok, he would prefer if no dress was necessary, ever. But yeah. Sometimes one had to sort their priorities, and that blond boy definitely took up a top position on Noctis’ priority list.
Funny, huh? How people could easily become such an important part of your life…

anonymous asked:

sO I SAW YOU TALKING BSS CHIRSTMAS HEADCANNONS ON THAT POST AND oh god they were so cute. Please share more holy shit

Ventus: CHRISTMAS, FUCK YEAH. Ven is 110% down with the Christmas spirit. Ugly Christmas sweaters, caroling, eggnog, everything. There is no December. Only Christmas. It’s the first day of Christmas. Ven loves the idea of being a part of something bigger, and bringing a little bit of the outside world into his own little one. Ventus is down with all holidays, but Christmas is his favorite, a trait he and Sora share. For Ven, Christmas means spending time with family and friends, two things he holds near and dear to him so it has alot of sentimental meaning to him. He’ll totally sing Christmas songs under his breath, decorate the halls with holly and put mistletoe under doors so he can mess with Terra and Aqua. Though it does backfire but he’s not gonna complain about getting smooches. On Christmas Eve he makes everybody get together and hang out until the clock strikes 12, and then everybody tears into the presents! Ven tends to buy presents, but they always have a meaning behind them, his gifts carry emotion.

Aqua: Aqua is really into Christmas too. Mainly since Ven is so into it, the cheer gets to her as well. She makes cookies, gets the tree all set up, buys the holiday ham, gets the eggnog, makes the punch. She’s basically your local friendly Christmas mom. She’s never been to Christmas Town before, so she has to get alot of pointers from books, online, and of course, Sora, so their Christmas ends up being this adorable hodgepodge of different things that are Christmas related. Aqua will totally go caroling with Ven and she really enjoys it! Also Ven/Aqua singing duet is the shit. Nothing can top Aqua’s rendition of Silent Night. Aqua is also their local ‘Santa’, since Santa can’t visit their world easily she usually stuffs the stockings herself. But some gifts pop up randomly…. Aqua makes gifts herself- they’re both practical but sentimental, and they carry alot of emotion in them.

Terra: Terra is sort of indifferent to Christmas at first. What are all these lights doing around. What is there a weed under the door. Aqua are you aware there is a large tree in the castle room. Eventually, it gets to him slowly, all the cheer and happiness and evntually Terra puts on the Ugly Sweaters and drinks the eggnog. It’s abit embarrassing, but when he sees how happy Ven and Aqua gets about Christmas he can’t help but be happy too. He doesn’t like to carol but hey, he’ll go along anyways. He also spikes the punch because somebody has to. Terras is the sort to buy somebody what they want, but includes little cards to let them know he is thinking about them. Aw. Also, he enjoys mistletoe- it means nobody can yell at him for sneaking kisses from Ven.

THIS WAS SUPER FUN TO ANSWER! If you want to send me an ask about my headcannons or stuff please do, I love talking about KH <3

Hanami and her Daddy! NARUSAKU BABY FANFIC TIME!

Since it’s Ramen Night in the Uzumaki household, Sakura has time to take little Hanami to see Daddy at work!

He can’t spend much time with her because he’s Hokage, so he likes to take her onto the roof of his office. 

“Hanami… sing Daddy’s favorite song before we go in, pretty please.”

“Aaaaalright, Daddy!” Hanami raises her hands over her head.

“Se-ven, se-ven, Ho-ka-ge! Se-ven, se-ven, ho-ka-ge!” She makes a wooshing sound with her mouth and moves her arms like branches swaying in the wind. “Of Ko-no-haaaaaaa, Ko-no-haaaaaa, se-ven, se-ven, Hokage!”

Hanami giggles as she finishes her song. Naruto clears his throat.

“Aaaaand..?” He adds in a sing-song voice. The pink-haired girl claps her hands together.

“Oh, yeah! And my Daddy, Naruto, is the best one ever!” She sings, concluding her song. Naruto throws her up in the air and catches her, kissing her nuzzling her cheeks with his nose.

“That’s my girl!” Father and daughter giggle together.

“Funny… I don’t remember that last verse being in the song…” Sakura walks in front of them and puts her hands on her hips.

“”Kids these days, huh, Sakura-chan?” Naruto grins and hands their daughter over to his wife.

“Yeah, kids these days, huh, Mama?” Hanami mimics her father as her parents laugh.

“Don’t be late for dinner, Naruto.” Sakura says as she and the little girl wave goodbye to the Seventh Hokage.

“Late for Ramen Night!? Never.” As soon as the two are out of eye sight, Naruto turns around and grins happily.

  • I can get either Terra/Aqua/Ven colors, or you can pick custom colors (or apparently images judging by the photos on the listing.) The Etsy page here is here, btw for anyone who wants to buy one of their own, or to check out all the options if you’re the winner.

Yeah, I think that’s all?

Giveaway ends on May 13, 2014. Winner will be chosen at 7 P.M. EST at that date, and notified. Winner has 48 hours to reply before I jump to the runner up.
