I liked this movie better than the first. -Lefty
Well, that’s good. Maybe I’ll go watch it this weekend. By myself. And eat a whole box of Milk Duds.
CATCHING FIRE IS SO GOOD!!! Loved it. -Lefty
See, with the books, I really liked the first one, and I thought the second one was okay, and the third one was kind of poo on old toast.
So, I thought the first movie was okay not great, and I’m kind of worried the films will follow the same trajectory.
Or flash her boobs. :-)
Halla flashes her boobs. Nora hands you a cookie. They have some differences.
HCTS 8: Oh, man. A bit of a toughie, this one. Merely because sometimes I'm fighting against that sort of...upbringing with my husband sometimes (it's not quite as severe as Henry's, but it's there). Dealing with shades of his father. It says a lot about Henry that he's willing to listen to Nora on this point. Yeah, he was defensive, but he was still open. That's good. Very good. Yay! I'm all caught up! Nora rocks. I love your OFCs. They are seriously the best!
He’s so scared to be perceived of as weak that letting himself be vulnerable is really difficult. He definitely is trying though. I think losing Halla and then being faced with losing Nora is making him realize that he’s got to change or he’s not going to be happy. The women that he wants to be with, don’t want to be with him as he is, so he has to make a choice between the pain of dealing with his past or the pain of dealing with an empty future.
One of the big differences between Halla and Nora is that Nora is willing to have the uncomfortable conversations when they’re necessary and Halla would just kiss him and change the topic.
Aw bollocks, I transposed her last name: It's Kaya Scodelario, not Scoledario. Stupid fingers.
Google fixed it for me. I don’t think I’ve seen anything she’s been in. Though now I know that she was in Skins with Nicholas Hoult who is back together with Jennifer Lawrence who apparently has forbidden him to take a movie role if it means working with Kristen Stewart because she doesn’t trust her.
I may have clicked on a few too many links while I was looking at Kaya
HCTS 7: Nora's stern words at the end of the chapter had me cheering. Because, dammit, she's right! Listen, I'm terribly proud that he didn't push when she was unsure of how far she was willing to go. But that's about all the good he did in the chapter (well, the hypothermia thing, too--but really, it's his fault in the first place). He needs a smack upside his head. So I was very pleased when she gave him the verbal version of that. You go, girl!
She totally was right about it. Nora’s happy with who she is and she’s not going to change who she is to make some guy she’s known six days happy. No matter how nice his boobs are. :D
the-lovely-madness: This is for the Robin Hood BBC season four story that someday I am going to write.
krismiss2000: Cecily is the OFC’s name.
sammydavisjuniorjr: I just found the picture on Pinterest. I will now have to go look her up.
loyal-apathy: I feel honored to be a doge meme response recipient
HCTS 6: Henry getting upset over Nora not wanting to take him kyaking with the big boys (and girls). I was like, "Oh, hon." He has no clue. NO CLUE. But smooching later--mmmmm nice. The best part though: “As built as you are, I think your boobs are actually nicer than mine.” I laughed so hard. Onwards to the next bit!
He’s used to being the big dog on the beach. But yes, smooching. Mmmmm, Henners can kiss. Also, I love Nora. She’s shy but every once in a while she pulls out a line like that.
Deep down, does Halla worry that Michael is not smart enough? Does she sometimes think she needs another genius?
I’m going to let Halla answer this one. - Molly
Michael is a genius. Have you seen any of his films? He’s brilliant. I have a specific kind of genius, he has another one. I think that’s one of the reasons why I love him. Because he is a genius and he understands the kind of demands and sacrifices that requires if you are going to utilize it to its fullest potential. I see things about the world that he doesn’t because of my training, but he sees things I don’t because of his. Listening to him explain why a film is good is fascinating. Listening to him explain why a film is bad is hysterically funny.
As for book smarts, it’s nice to be able to talk about what I’m doing with someone who is smart enough to understand what I’m talking about, and he does, at least the general outline, is curious enough to ask smart questions, but not into enough where they feel like they have to critique what you’re doing. I seriously think I would kill my partner if he were an astrophysicist. That’s what peers and colleagues are for. He is totally smart enough to fill all my needs. Just because he didn’t go to university doesn’t mean he’s dumb. As long as he finds what I’m doing interesting and worthwhile, and he totally does, we’re fine.
Maybe I should tell this to him instead of flashing him my boobs.
Chunks of salt in the chocolate mousse. Genius! This is going to be interesting. Watching Nora try to help him turn his scars into stars. Watching him try to let her. Someone once said, “People have an infinite capacity for change, but they seldom do it.”
"Watching him try and turn his scars into stars." Geez, lady. You should be writing this story.
HCTS 5: Soooo apparently, I'm ridiculously behind on this story. Ugh. I don't know how I missed all the glorious updates. *weeps* Well, making up for lost time. Normally I don't really like fluffy happy stuff (which is probably why I LOVE your work--because you crush souls), but this chapter was so awesome. The cowboy bar and dancing and everything. *happy sigh* Now off to the next chapter!
I am the soul crusher!
If you google “I am the soul crusher tumblr” this is the first image.
So apparently I am Agent Coulson. So, like, AWESOME!
Nope. Still want to punch him in the dick.
You don’t feel even the littlest bit sorry for him? Even a teensy beensy bit?
Stupid defense means I still haven't seen Thor but I don't feel too spoiled by that. I bet it will make more sense after I have seen it. I'll have to come re-read it then. BTW that is my post-defense plan. Thor & Catching Fire. Anyway....I love that Michael isn't afraid to be vulnerable with her or to recognize her brilliance. She still has a little work to do at conversations like that. Although her solution was more fun than more talking would be.
Sometimes it’s just so much easier to shove a boob in their face than talk to them. Yes, she still has progress to make, but she’s better than she used to be. I think it helps that she feels safe with Michael. She knows he’ll give her the time she needs to find what she needs to say.
I need to see Catching Fire still, too.
