–check yes juliet, we the kings
happy (very belated) birthday, willie nolastname! i hope you got lots of love from alex and the rest of the band and that you’re far, far away from the hollywood ghost club. ily sk8rboi <3
thanks @sk8rwillie for giving me inspiration for this set via your amazing willie playlist!
nothing will ever convince me that Ray Molina was not at the Eat and Beats because Trevor asked him to go for him….he had a photography job and told Trev he’d swing by if he told him her time slot
Was going to be a good uncle Ray cause Trevor is off doing whatever he does for Luke’s birthday
Did not expect to see his own daughter singing really closely to some random boy he doesn’t recognize
They sound good, and he’s happy she’s singing and performing again but he’s upset cause she disobeyed him,
so he takes her home, texts Trev that Carrie was great and that none of the record producers tried anything
(another reason he sent Ray gotta make sure there’s an adult present when his Carrie talks record execs so she doesn’t end up like him)
and because dads don’t fully get teenage girl drama but try he doesn’t actually TELL her that he was originally there because Trev ask
but he will not deny it if you catch him singing All Eyes on Me
Why Julie and the Phantoms is a masterpiece of a show. Part 1 of 3· NOTE: if somehow you happen to like my gifs, please, feel free to use them. But, please, don’t crop or change.· NOTE 2: This meta has been flourishing in my mind for quite a long time, but it was @catty-words meta on Perfect Harmony that inspired me to actually put it all on paper· NOTE 3: I planned two parts of this, but ended up with far more gifs than a post allows. I dunno. Not sure if anyone will actually be interested in this rumbling. Probably it won’t even be a new and outstanding thinking. I’ll see how it goes.
What sets a good show apart? I’ll tell you exactly this: the pilot and the finale.
Whether it’s a season finale or a grand finale, it doesn’t matter for a scenario. People tend to forget the middle, that’s why all we remember about LOST is this weird
full of dead peoplechurch that simply left the fans heartbroken. But frankly speaking, LOST ended so much better then most modern shows. And honestly I get why it’s so hard to keep track on things after 6 years and such a long row of characters. That’s why making a season in one take is so much better, when writers do not depend on what the fans think or like or ship. They simply do their job.
Do I need to say that our brain clearly remembers everything we throw at it? We think we forget, but that’s not quite true. That’s also the reason how we distinguish what we like and dislike – we remember all the small things and foreshadowing. Also that’s why we keep re-watching the shows we love: we simply acknowledge what our brain already knows. We simply find that thread that links everything together.
And they can be simple things. But first on what made this script a masterpiece for me: first and last scenes in the studio (+some things from 0102 band circle scene of 0109).
1. The Studio Intro
In 0101 Julie hesitates to go in the garage. She was reluctant to go in the first place. It signifies everything she’s lost: mother, music, voice. She inhales deeply, steadying herself. She can do this.
In 0109 it’s quite the opposite. She wanted to go there even though she knew the guys had already crossed over. Now this place signifies everything she gained back and more: music, voice, friends and, of course, a way back to her mother. She did it.
And this is a perfect visual explanation of the line “It’s not what you lost, it’s what you gain raising your voice to the rain”
2. The Band Intro
Can you see it the way I see it? It’s not a coincidence, it’s been done on purpose. Julie is mortified both times but for completely different reasons. In 0101 she is scared OF them. In 0109 she is scared FOR them. It’s so heartbreakingly beautiful it even hurts.
3. Personal space
In 0101 Julie and Luke are both scared of each other. See that extra step she did to push him away? Or the way he acts as if Julie is really a witch that could curse him? And who needs any personal space in 0109? These scenes show their journey in the best way possible.
4. You have to leave
In 0101 after accepting the fact that she was sane enough and these three ghosts really existed Julie is simply annoyed. She orders them to leave. She doesn’t what them to exist in her life. She has no time to deal with these dead cute boys. She wants them gone.
In 0109 after acknowledging that their plan has failed she also wants them gone. She orders them to leave again. But she wants to save them and for now that’s the only way she can think of. It’s better than not existing at all, even if it means not existing in her life.
And just look at the directing. The shots are almost twins! Julie mimics the scene from 0101 almost entirely, although it hits on a different level. I don’t exactly know why it makes me so excited, probably I’m just very tired of mediocre scripts.
5. Maybe she’s a witch
I’m sure she is at least to some extent. It’s such a wonderful foreshadowing. I hope in season 2 we’ll find out more but I think the perception on this in “Feels like I’ve opened my eyes again” by @pink-flame is very close if not almost entirely accurate to what I thought about season 2 and all this magic thing. Such a masterpiece of a fanfiction btw, I wish I found the show sooner and was reading it chapter by chapter. One of the best things I’ve read so far in any fandom.
6. Attached to our souls & 7. She’s warming up to us
Do I need to say much? That’s the magic Julie has: her love for these boys. They are attached to her soul.
8. We had nowhere else to go
To think about it, they didn’t need Julie’s permission to stay in the first place. Like… How on earth would she even get rid of them? But that’s what defined these friendship from the start. They asked for permission in 0101 and in 0109 Luke’s words are almost apologetic that they ended up in her garage again.
9. I’m sorry we came into your life
Again, look at how both episodes have been shot. 0101 they stand apart, not knowing anything about each other yet. They both are not very comfortable with the whole situation and Luke voices what Julie might be thinking: why me? In 0109 Julie answers her past self that it was a blessing and a miracle. They are the closest they’ve ever got to be and the most sincere.
10. I have space for only one more gif and I’m simply fond of this parallel. We need a Witch!Julie AU)))))
Due to the pics limit I have to stop here. But there is so much more to say. So stay tuned to see Parts two and three if you liked this one. God, I hope you did
