Your challenge is to write crossover fanfiction combining The United States Supreme Court and Transformers. The story should use building a website as a plot device!

Oh GOD. LOL

I just clicked on it and got this, which cracked me up:

Your challenge is to write crossover fanfiction combining Twilight and Law & Order. The story should use a wild west setting as a plot device!

Your challenge is to write crossover fanfiction combining Bill Nye the Science Guy and I, Robot. The story should use an ancient prophecy as a plot device!

… Actually. That could work. XD

“I would love Rumbelle no matter what, but after watching the SDCC interviews, I’m just so so soooo glad that Emilie and Bobby are the ones playing these characters! I mean we already know how talented actors they are, but just look at those interviews. Look at them! I love them so much, and I’m so happy to have a ship like Rumbelle with such adorable, fantastic, funny, intelligent actors like these two Seriously, just: Look. At. Them. On these videos. Comic Con made me so happy this year!”

No but really! You have NO CLUE! Like Ok! So I’ve spent my entire life dedicated to learning to act! Like I like to fancy  myself an alright actor and I’ve worked long and hard to do even better in the past few years going to university for it and working with the different theroies! So let me tell you just HOW Phenominal these two actors are.
First off Interviews. More Emilie than Bobby because she slips up more. People say “I love when they answer questions in character” but here’s the thing I wanna tell you cause it’s a thing I hear every single second of every single day. Acting is living truthfully in imaginary circumstances. The character must be in you and so to properly live the character and believe in the circumstances you must refer to yourself as the character according to the Meisner technique which is probably the leading technique right now and most well used. You spend a good year in this technique just going back and foreth repeating the obvious like “You are wearing a red shirt” “I am wearing a red shirt” And you can’t go past just what you’re wearing for MONTHS! Emilie is one of the most amazingly talented people I’ve seen with the Meisner technique! Really she just is flawless with it! Her emotions are perfect because she lives truthfully as Belle and accepts that she is Belle! And that’s just Emilie and Meisner! Bobby does it too but much more often he remembers to call Rumple “He” Instead of saying “I” which is the flagship tenant of Meisner.
Now onto Bobby! Not only is he supposedly one of the most phenomenally professional actors to work with according to like everyone ever! He understands the play of power in composition of a frame. He knows how to hold power when sitting he knows exactly when to throw the essential film technique (No blinking on close ups, don’t shift from field of play, ect.) completely down the toilet but do it in a way that it speaks to the character. He has researched everything down to the smallest detail. If you tested him on the history of Rumplestitlskin the story or ask him the behaviors of a drug addict and how drug addiction affects the personality he would pass with flying colors AND when he was done he would look you in the eyes and say “Let me teach you a thing”! Every single action he makes he knows the reason for. Nothing is meaningless. He has figured out the nervous quirks the posture the movements the gate. Every single part of him is the embodiment of a new character!
I don’t even know how to tell you how absolutely breathtaking their acting abilities are! They are like watching a masterclass of perfect technique and acting abilities and training. You will learn things form them you can’t imagine. Just seeing them on screen together is a library’s worth of knowledge, learning, and research meeting another library’s woth of the same stuff AND GOING OUT FOR COFFEE! Their skill and talents are unprecedented so no one EVER tell me that those two are untalented or they don’t know what their doing! They are two of the most amazing and underrated actors I’ve ever seen and they deserve so much applause for every move they make because they are paranormal in their skill!

May I ask if you study other Once actors in the same way? Are there other actors about whom you have similar remarks? I’m just very interested in reading them. ^^

Yeah! I like to put it to all of them and they are all amazing in their own way. They are a very talented cast there are few times I ever really see gaping flaws in character. I mean most of the others have moments here or there where something doesn’t resonate quite as true at least from what I see. I won’t like the three I study most are Robert, Emilie, and Lana because honestly they are the easiest to study. Ginny, JMo, Josh, Colin. They’re all very talented but when I look for technique and true honesty in every scene and real emotions that you can feel to the core in a genuinely consistent to the point of being permanent way those three are your best bet. Lana has some really really gorgeous moments. Her skills are so very obvious with her command of film technique. She has amazing relaxation and control over it so the only tension she has is the tension she wants and her control over her eyes and physicality and her constant awareness of her space is really very very skillful! She had flawless film technique which I really really enjoy! It makes me So sooooo happy to see that I would die to act with her. I also Enjoyed moments of truth in Michael Raymond James actually. He makes a reference to A Marlin Brando trick from on the water front and weather that’s a him choice or in the script it really is a beautiful show of using your set and using everything. He does well with props which is also something you talk a lot about in film school. What props mean for your character and how to use them to the best extent. Bobby defiantly does this with his cane. but the found prop of emma’s glove (A direct quote from Brando) was really really amazing and I went back to watch some of the other Neal scenes and he really does do FANTASTICALLY with those things and worked on the character a lot which I enjoy! But yes I analyze all of them for the good and the bad.
When you go to film school it has a tendancy to change the way you watch things. You know the tricks. I do btoh acting and screenwriting so I do a lot of story analysis and acting analysis on really every show and movie I watch. It’s drilled into me after living it 24/7 for the past few years.

Whoot whoot! Thanks for the info. That’s all very fun to read, and different from the usual fangirling and meta. ;-)

I realise this is shittiest thing to post on your Independence Day but now you can see why I would fail in an American school

This has seven hundred notes and it’s basically out of my control now but omg this is the Canadian grading scale

THIS is the American grading scale. As you can see, it is completely and utterly designed to make students feel like they are failures. If you think you’d do terribly in Canada, just try and deal with the grades in America. Personally, I’d be thrilled with the Canadian grading system.


This is my universities grading scale in New Zealand


YES HELLO I WANT TO LIVE IN NEW ZEALAND

In Belgium, they just give you a percentage. As a child, I used to have between 85 and 90% in total. That changed after 12 years old, when school got tougher for me, and I was happy to get 75% on average, with nothing under 60%. (Though you only failed if you really got a test under 50%) If you go for your bachelor or master, they no longer work with a percentage, but the maximum you can get is 20 points. In general they want you to score over 12 points for each subject, but if you score 10 points for one subject, no one is going to make you redo that course, if the other scores are alright.

Rumbell’s honeymoon will be held in this cottage “Cecil Green Park House

 Mr. Gold is an expert in luxury! :)


I think Belle will dancing with Rumple in this house.



Most people are on about the dancing… For some reason, I’m thinking they might read in front of the fireplace? Yes, the dancing scene is very iconic, but I’m thinking a lovely romantic scene of them reading in front of the fireplace can be just as great.
