Jaeger crews from this beautiful crossover fic ‘I Sang In My Chains Like The Sea’ by LittleBigSpoon.
If you like The Hobbit AND Pacific Rim - GO AND READ IT NOW because it’s marvelous and everything you might want from a crossover.
All designs and ideas belong to wonderful Spoon, who kindly helped me to picture every character here. Thank you so much for this gorgeous story and constant support. You’re amazing)
In my screenwriting class this week, my instructor explained that if you do not signify a race or ethnicity, your character will be assumed to be white. There will be no clarification, no one will ask you to explain, the director and casting agent will create a whites-only casting call for auditions.
This obviously isn’t news. We know that the default for Hollywood is white even though mathematically, according to the demographics of California and the entire world, this is laughably illogical.
I asked him how you signify that you want open casting in your script for any race or ethnicity because you want the best actor for the character.
He didn’t understand and started talking about words like “eurasian” in the descriptive lines following your character’s introduction.
I explained that I wasn’t asking about how to denote racial ambiguity (which is another favorite of Hollywood), rather an actual open casting call that wasn’t limited to white and white passing people.
He said he had never come across this.
Never, in his entire decade+ career, had he ever come across an open casting call.
So when people say shit like, “oh well maybe they just got the best actor for the role!”, they deserve to have their faces slammed into the nearest available surface.
Do you ever think about the fact that the US has created and legitimized a system of institutionalized inequality by funding schools through property taxes? That basically a child’s education is only as good as the value of the property in their neighborhood. Funny how education is so often viewed as an equalizing factor when there is nothing equal about it.
You guys, Stiles is not adopted and Sheriff is not a virgin.
Jennifer took the father of her last sacrifice, the Guardian sacrifice that is the sum of all the four other sacrifical categories.
STILES IS A VIRGIN, A WARRIOR, A HEALER, A PHILOSOPHER, AND THUS A GUARDIAN. FIVE FOLD KNOT is the symbol of FOUR ELEMENTS TIED INTO THE UNIVERSE (the middle knot).
12 SACRIFICES (3 TIMES 4 CATEGORIES) PLUS A LAST ONE of the Guardian MAKES THIRTEEN.
She needs Stiles for her complete darachy thing thats why she looked at Stiles like that and said all that to the Sheriff, that’s why she takes Sheriff as a bargain chip and to get her hands on Stiles. I think.
One study had people sit in front of an array of objects, then grab and manipulate a specific sequence of objects, as directed by a computer voice. Sometimes the computer voice said things like, “Move the box.” Other times it added a filler word, saying, “Move the, uh, box.” The task wasn’t complex, and people had no trouble following the directions. Still, they were quicker to follow directions that involved objects they hadn’t yet manipulated when their instructions included an “uh.” To listeners, “uh” indicates that something new, which requires more mental processing on the part of the speaker, is about to be introduced. This helped the study participants put themselves in the right mindset of choosing from the as-yet unfamiliar objects. So even a word that’s no more than a grunt is helpful. Which is good, because all languages have verbal filler. American Sign Language has a sign for “um,” and most languages have some monosyllable that has no meaning but indicates a pause
This is probably one reason it can be so hard to digest a lot of academic and straight-news writing. And, uh, therefore a helpful writing tip.
Time to write a script to insert filler words into academic papers. “Subject B was a member of, like, the control group.”
Interesting. I’ll keep that in mind next time I’m training.
People say that I explain things in ways other people can easily understand when I talk. I’m starting to wonder if this has something to do with it - I use a hell of a lot of filler words/syllables.
It always bothers me when people act like using fillers is “bad”, and that a person’s speech is better if they can minimize their use of them.
Peter isn’t telling the truth. So was Paige a complete lie? Or maybe, was it Derek’s involvement in the story that was the lie?
I think Paige was real but I don’t think she happened to Derek. She happened to Peter. Peter, who’s the cocky, suave charmer, the captain of the basketball team, the one who’s there to watch the alphas arrive at Beacon Hills and who’s present at all the stages of Paige’s attack and her failed turning.
MY MIND IS BLOWN
I know its a pretty common headcanon to have Karkat as a little shortstop and Kanaya as tall and slender, but initially my first thoughts of their physical attributes were almost the opposite.
I had pictured Kanaya to be short and a bit fuller (following with motherly archetypes here) and Karkat to be somewhat taller.
Just something I was thinking about this morning.
also changed my watermark to my signature initals not really important though
yes, so much yes
just because a television show doesn’t actively address a specific issue doesn’t mean they’re actively avoiding it either. you know what happens when you try to stuff every possible social debate under the sun into one show?
you get glee.
that’s what happens.
