You see Miss Bridgerton and I have been fooling all of Mayfair for quite some time. We have fooled them into thinking we are courting. When really, all along, we simply enjoyed each other’s company so much we could not stay away from one another. And, it is with my sincerest apologies that it took the Prince coming along for me to realize I did not want Miss Bridgerton to only be my friend - I wanted her to be my wife. I want her to be my wife.
Just because I am trying to learn ASL, here are some translations of Amaya from the Dragon Prince.
“Breakfast is the most important meal of the day.”
“Breakfast - most - important - food\meal - day”
bruh this is so cute, he knocks twice on her shield and she turns around and says “who’s there” with that soft smile. I can’t. I love her.
This gif is cut off a bit but whatever
“We? How many do you are there?”
“You guys - how many - you - are.”
I’m not sure but the way she signs “you” look like she’s circling around like a group? So she’s talking about how many elves are there. You know?
“Me\I - O - K.”
“if the elf realises we followed them, she’ll take the prince’s lives. We need to he careful.”
“If - elf [Rayla] - realises - we - follow - around - kill - princes - need - carful - you[we].”
I beileve she means “we” with the last sign, baised on Green’s translation
“Callum, you know it doesn’t help to yell. And why are you saying ‘human troops’ like that?”
“C-A-L-L-U-M - why - you - yell - why - you - say - human - Troops* - that
Also, in Gren’s translation he doesn’t seem to be looking at Amaya’s signs completely at first, almost as if he, himself is saying "you know it doesn’t help to yell.” This most likely not the situation, but I just thought it was cute.
*she clearly is saying troops but I never seen the sign before nor can I find it online. I’m still very new to this, so who knows.
love & anarchy + favorite dare ➽ dress like cyndi lauper
in their little boss-and-employee scenario, where their office power dynamics are flipped, max asks sofie a series of silly questions. “what’s your favorite color?” “what’s our favorite candy?” he’s trying to get to know her better, and it mirrors the scene later on in the series, when they’re in bed and sofie asks him to tell her about himself. in the office max asks sofie to tell him who the last musical artist she listened to was. she says it’s carla dal forno. he makes her empty her purse, pulls out her phone, and plays the last song she listened to. he gazes at her as he listens. it’s cyndi lauper. sofie’s embarrassed and flustered. she can’t play the game and flirt with him right then anymore. a boundary’s been crossed. her listening to cyndi lauper is not as innocuous as her favorite color being red. it’s a truth about herself, one she wanted to hide, and both the fact that she likes cyndi lauper and that she lied about it give max insight into her.
later that night she gets her next dare from him: “dress like cyndi lauper tomorrow.” she knows exactly what to wear and how to style her hair. later, when she’s at her father’s place, she walks into her childhood bedroom. and there on the wall are posters of cyndi lauper. the largest poster is of a photo of cyndi that max saw when he googled her. and there taped to her mirror are more pictures of cyndi, and a photo of sofie’s younger self dressed up as her. so we see sofie the adult dressed up as cyndi lauper, looking in a mirror at her younger self dressed up as her idol, a woman whose music she still listens to.
it’s my favorite dare because with it max shows that he sees sofie and that he isn’t put off by what he sees. more importantly, his dare gives sofie a chance to push aside her instinct to hide what she loves and show it openly. and it ties in beautifully with the encouragement and affirmation her father gives her in the final episode, along with the words that she wrote for herself and shares with her daughter. “i’d hate if you ended up like me…or anyone else for that matter. the only one you should be is yourself. you have so much going for you that’s distinctly unique. you’re a forest now.”
