“and there aren’t any horses in tmfu” – @theheirofashandfire
These are the hot takes I do it for
#tmfu#they are RIGHT and they should SAY IT#it’s the only thing that is lacking in the movie
@deducitetemporacarmen how dare you hide this tea in the tags. New discussion point: should there be more than one horse in TMFU, and where should it (they) have been?
– instead of the vespa,
– the whole chase scene and driving on water, boring. Consider: jesus horse
– add more suggestions
sidenote, this is giving me ideas for a Cowboy au and I will find a way to send a Howler in real life to @theheirofashandfire if this ends up being another damn WIP
@deducitetemporacarmen you are absolutely right, it’s the only thing wrong with the movie. and @somedrunkpirate look this is not my fault, I definitely don’t deserve a Howler (though I would be very curious to see your attempt). Also don’t tempt me with ideas for how to shoehorn horses into tmfu fic as well.
Also, further suggestions for where a horse should be:
- instead of the motorbike that Illya uses to chase down Gaby in the jeep. Which yes, would result in Illya picking up a horse and throwing it instead of the motorbike
- Jesus horse
- when gaby double-crosses them, illya is chased out of the estate by guard horses instead of guard dogs (yes I’m aware guard horses are a stupid concept but still)
Failing that, there should just be random horses in the background. Berlin? Pack of feral horses roaming the streets like thugs. Rome? Sophisticated horses at the fountain. Aircraft carrier? Boom, horse in naval uniform.
Also @somedrunkpirate I saw your dischorse tag and I am ashamed to know you, you’re terrible.
I’m going to reiterate my suggestions to have them in one reblog chain:
-horse racing instead of boring cars at the rallye
-Napoleon arriving on horse anywhere, preferably the scene at the stairs, where they are not supposed to Make Contact
-also the secret lab is hidden on a horse ranch
Excuse you, dischorse is the only valid tag for this conversation @theheirofashandfire
Yes it would. Who says she already isn’t. Maybe Guy Ritchie J.K. Rowlinged us.
“I mean, Gaby is an expert on horses, owns five of them and is actually a world class dressage rider, it just wasn’t relevant to the Vinciguerra plotline :/” ~Guy Ritchie probably
You know come to think of it, that seems very plausible.
Also: What about Udo Teller and his favourite pony Schnitzel?
oh my god Yes
@somedrunkpirate I see you tagging this dischorse and I am not here for it
Also stop @wickerjulias and @deducitetemporacarmen I do not need another wip in my life about Gaby being a Secret Horse Expert bc I will accidentally write it and accidentally make it over 50k because I do not know how to stop (seriously ask @somedrunkpirate about the coffee shop AU)
glad to know that every writer in tmfu has the same problem *glances at every longer fic I’ve ever written*
But consider this: Make it a wild west AU with Gaby being the heiress of the Best Horse Ranch breeding the Best Horses. The Vinciguerras try to push her out of business by shady means. Actual Cowboy Solo, fresh from the boat Illya looking for a job. And now to the best part: LOTS OF HORSES. HORSES EVERYWHERE
Damnit Kathi I actually like that last idea, I hate you, I already have too many wips
