Ok I just wanna talk about how beautiful Attack on Titan’s artwork is
I mean look at that
the sky’s so pretty
and the scenery
you can see the waves in the water and the texture of the trees
and you can see all the details on the buildings
and the animation
is so smooth

I AM IN LOVE WITH THIS.
Alex having a Marilyn moment
Can I just say Alex has a DEADLY package.
Fantastic hair, Amazing eyes and smile, smooth and clear - pale but healthy skin, a rack that is large and glorious without being overwhelming… and oh yes, LEGS THAT DON’T QUIT.
If I wasn’t already a lesbian? I would totally be lesbian for her. Goddamn it.
he loves his dogs. :-) awezz
I am besotted with how his glasses make him look and how it’s obvious the dogs adore the heck out of him.
Ianto: Put the key down. Or I’ll shoot. You have to let Diane go. Like I did with Lisa.
Owen: Don’t compare yourself to me. You’re just a tea boy.
Ianto: I’m much more than that. Jack needs me.
Owen: In your dreams, Ianto. In your sad wet dreams when you’re his part-time shag, maybe. That rift took my lover and my captain. So if I die trying to beat it, then it will all be in the line of duty.
don’t let it get to you Ianto baby, Owen’s not thinking clearly. We all know you are more to Jack than just the tea boy. :-)
The thing is, at this point he’s just tipping over that line into a partner, a lover in truth. Owen is an ass however- so he’s going for the most obvious weakness, especially since the real relationship is so new and fragile and barely growing beyond what Owen called it there.
best moment of the ep for me. i cried. i still cry. i actually cried this morning re-watching it, which was not good cuz i’m forced to church every Sun and already had my makeup and such done so I had to re-do it quickly before I was pushed out the door.
Beautiful scene. :-) I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again, these two as a couple would have been amazing. I would have quite enjoyed that. :-D So cute!!
Angels danced at the Ritz.
This entire story was beautiful and painful and wonderful. The original Harkness is an amazing man, brave and daring and dashing and sweet and everything a man could hope to be. Jack’s whole immortal life has been striving to achieve what his chosen namesake had before his final flight.
Humanity with humility, Bravery with wisdom, Compassion with strength.
And this episode was coming to terms with that, was seeing what he had to live up to, and how he already had lived up to it. It was Jack coming of age and being accepted and a bit transitioning from wanting to be this good man to BEING this good man. And it was beautiful in every way.
It makes Utopia and the Doctor and the Master’s actions just that more heinous towards him when they follow. He back slides a lot during that year that never was. And it’s so very sad to see.
Jack: Tomorrow is their last training exercise, just another day. They go out on a sortie and are surprised by two formations of Messerschmitts. He destroys three of the enemy. His men listen to his whoops of joy over the radio. Then it all goes quiet. He can’t bail out because his whole plane is on fire. But his men all make it back to safety.
In my headcannon, that fire was the rift energy. He never dies, like Dianne he flies through the rift, into the distant future. After CoE, after Miracle Day. And he lands near where Jack is rebuilding Torchwood and he and Jack, the two Jacks, keep the peace for the first official peaceful contact and help humanity take it’s first toddling steps into inter planetary politics - all from behind the scenes.
Stop-Motion Short of the Day: The history of Western Civilization as told through the changing hairstyles of women over time.
This is actually pretty awesome.
Jack: Excellent bottom.
Algy: I say, old man, there’s a time and a place. Look, we should really be off.
Jack: Sorry, old man, I gotta’ go meet a girl. But you’ve got an excellent bottom too.
Sorry, but I grin like a loon every time I see this scene. It’s SO Jack.
I love this man… He is so one of us. <3
Ahh you sweet Otaku. <3
Jack: Hey, her falling for you is hardly my fault. Play it cool in front of your men, but not in front of me. It’s okay to be scared.
Captain: A captain has to keep his head.
Jack: A captain needs to explain risks, tell his men what to expect.
Captain: So what do I do? Tell ‘em I saw a young boy get shot in the eyes mid-flight?
Jack: I understand.
Captain: Do you? Did you hear him on the radio, yelling for his mom, while the Messerschmitts pumped him full of holes and blew his plane apart? All I can hear on the radio …
Jack: -is screams. I went to war when I was a boy. I was with my best friend. We got caught crossing the border over enemy lines. They tortured him because he was weaker. They made me watch him die. And they let me go.
Captain: Who were they?
Jack: The worst possible creatures you can imagine. I persuaded him to join up. I said it would be an adventure. He hadn’t lived.
Captain: Have any of us?
Okay, admit it, how many of us fell in total love with both Jack Harknesses during this scene?
Ianto: Amazing. She’s a natural. 24 seconds.
Owen: Give Ianto a stop watch and he’s happy.
Ianto: It’s the button on the top.
I love the look he gives, looking in Jack’s direction. :P
That look is absolutely adorable, great catch there!
