whynot: SPN: all hail (Default)

As my icon might suggest, I watched Where the Wild Things Are and

I spent the first half hour bawling my eyes out at like EVERYTHING even the opening credits with Max's drawings all over them, and DESTROYING HIS SNOW FORT :(((( and destroying his card to his sister :(((((((((( AND THEN HIS MOTHER HELPS HIM CLEAN THINGS UP jfdsjfkldf. Familyyyyyy, growing up and how hard it is to stay together AND OMG MAX'S STORY ABOUT VAMPIRES T_T <-- this smiley means "I AM CRYING", right?

My experience over the course of the movie can be summed up as such:

T_T T_T T_T T_T <33333333 <333333333333 <3333333333 T_T T_T <333333333jfgksjlldfs

WTWTA is what Narnia purports to be, but is too full of holes to be. I've come to be seduced by Narnia's nostalgia heartbreak of never being reconciled with the world you leave behind, but it is so, so satisfying to be reconciled! OH MAX. Oh Max. At some point, I'll drabble about you hanging out with Lucy and/or Susan, but for now I'm just going to bask in the warm glow of MY LOST CHILDHOOD and maybe write my paper.

OH AND HEY. When the mom was on the phone talking to her boss, did you guys catch what his name was? MR. LASSITER. AND I WAS LIKE XD XD XD and further convinced that this movie was custom-made for me.

I haven't been having particularly strong feelings about SPN as I watch it, possibly because usually when I watch it I'm distracted doing something else. I don't really ship Sam/Dean, and I have a feeling I'm just waiting for this Castiel person to show up so I can ship him/Dean. I already ship Winchesters/Pevensies in any and all combinations. Prompt me some Pevenchester in comments and I'll write you 5-sentence fic (um, set during S1 I guess).

I have a bunch of unusable screencaps from when I was making my LWW icons. I still have them 'cos I'm a pack-rat, so here is me getting some use out of them:

EDMUND: ...and I was like, 'No way,' but Jadis was like, 'Yes way!', and I was like--

EVERYONE (except lucy): AAAH!

LUCY: What? What?

EDMUND: What just happened to your face?!

LUCY: My face?

EVERYONE (except lucy): AAAHH!

EDMUND: There it is again!

LUCY: Oh, that? It's just my face blurring. It happens sometimes.

SUSAN: Well, stop it. If you make that face often enough, it'll stay that way forever. Wherever did you pick up such a bad habit anyway?

I....do not know what to say. Except that Susan looks kinda pissed that Peter is undermining her authority in that last one.

but Jadis was like, "Yes way!" LOL

Don't fight in front of the children! (or the troops!)

"This is just like him, THIS IS JUST LIKE HIM," Sam sputters as Edmund wraps a bandage around his arm. "I told him to wait, but he never listens to me!"

"You would do the same for him," Edmund says quietly.

"That's not the point."

"Yes," Edmund replies. "It is."

Also, instead of Pevenchester, I think you should write an AU where Max is actually Susan's son.

Susan lets Max take her hand and lead her upstairs as she rubs the sleep out of her eyes. Now that he's back home safe, bar graphs and pie charts are free to bounce around her head again, and she wonders what time she should wake up tomorrow so she can finally finish this damned report.

She climb into bed and Max asks, "Do you want me to tell you a bedtime story"

Susan smiles. "Sure."

She lifts the covers and Max climbs in, curling against her and tucking his head under her chin. Susan kisses his forehead and strokes his hair, and he begins, "There's a land far from here who needs a king..."

You melted me. I am a puddle of Mary goop on the floor.

Peter is like "Damn, Jadis is hot!" and Susan is like STOP CHEATING ON ME and Lucy is like "But she's evil, Peter."

[identity profile] twoskeletons.livejournal.com 2009-12-20 05:00 am (UTC)(link)
"The best ones are always evil!" Lewis says.

[identity profile] animus-wyrmis.livejournal.com 2009-12-20 05:09 am (UTC)(link)
Edmund is like *facepalm*. Or else like "But Peter! I saw her first! She said she didn't want to meet you!"

"Hey Aslan," Lucy says. "Look, I know you say war's an ugly place when girls fight, but I think the boys have a bit of a conflict of interest going on here."

[identity profile] animus-wyrmis.livejournal.com 2009-12-20 05:21 am (UTC)(link)
Aslan would sigh and then let the girls fight. Lucy would fight for goodness and Narnia, and Susan would fight to get her man back.

(What's up with that anyway? Did Lewis just forget he said that by LWW?)

[identity profile] twoskeletons.livejournal.com 2009-12-20 05:24 am (UTC)(link)
"We won!" Peter announces cheerfully.

"No," says Lucy. "We won."

Hmm? What do you mean?

[identity profile] animus-wyrmis.livejournal.com 2009-12-20 05:27 am (UTC)(link)
"Aslan," Susan says, "can we rethink this high king nonsense? Peter hasn't done anything!"

By HHB, I guess I mean. Because Lucy fights in the battle and no one seems to think that's weird, so...huh.

[identity profile] twoskeletons.livejournal.com 2009-12-20 05:35 am (UTC)(link)
Probably Lucy made a big snit about to Aslan or something, and Susan helped her construct some practical arguments in favor of. Like,


Lucy beams and throws her arms around Him. "Thanks, Aslan. You're the best!"

(LWW was written before the rest of the books. The original order of the books is: LWW, PC, Dawn Treader, Silver Chair, Horse, Mag. Neph., Last Battle. Makes the inconsistencies disappear.)

Duh. By HHB, is what I meant to say--he specifically says battles aren't for women in LWW but seems to have forgotten about that by HHB. The inconsistencies are still there, unfortunately.
