Picspam: Forever Knight popcorn throwing scene 
26th-Apr-2009 03:38 pm
FK--Nick/Nat promo





What's not to love about this scene. It's Nick/Nat cuteness galore in a season full of squee and this was only the 7th episode. "False Witness" is one my all time favorites and a memorable episode ends in a memorable way with Nick and Nat hanging out and watching a movie. With this episode begins the time honored Forever Knight fanfic tradition of movie night for Nick and Natalie.  We've got a weepy Nat and her tissues,  popcorn, Natalie looking very much like a college student in leggings and an oversized t-shirt, and a teasing, playful Nick. No brooding vampire here.

What I especially love about this scene is that the popcorn throwing moment came compliments of the actors and the director. According to the script the scene was supposed to end with Nick smiling at Natalie, his fangs slightly visible. Instead Geraint Wyn Davies and the director Jorge Montesi kept the camera rolling as Nick snarled at Natalie. Catherine Disher remained in character and reacted by throwing the nearest prop she could find--the popcorn--and a Forever Knight classic was born.

Ohhh, this show. *happy, nostalgic sigh* Always had SUCH a thing for Geraint Wyn Davies thanks to this show. And Nick/Nat were SOOOOOO ADORABLE TOGETHER.

Thanks for the walk down memory lane! ♥

Yay for strolls down memory lane. I like spreading the FK love.

GWD was a major crush way back when. He was all dark and broodingly sexy one second and adorably cute the next. What's not to love.

Forever Knight for the win!

It's so much fun doing picspams for this show. Who knew old school fandoms lend themselves so easily to the medium. That made me very happy.

Thanks for dropping in! :-)

I love this scene. I was just watching this episode last night believe it or not. I'm having my own private marathon and watching a couple of episodes in order before I go to bed! Anyhoo, I just love Nick and Nat cuteness!

A marathon sounds like such a nice idea. I keep meaning to do that myself but I keep pushing it back. I haven't kicked back and watched FK in such a long time. Sure I clip for my vids and I seek out bits for my fic but watching for enjoyment's sake is such a foreign idea right now. I seriously gotta get on that one.

SWOON! I adore this scene. Nick's face! Okay, time to break out the FK DVDs, methinks.

Seriously, it's like cutest scene ever! ::hugs first season Nick/Nat::

Nick's facial expressions were priceless. I had to stop myself from including every single one of my caps he's that adorable. Oh Nick!

This is fun! Thank you for sharing it.

The "movie night" concept has been so incredibly important to fanon ever since "False Witness" aired. One of my pet trivia notes in this scene is the orientation of the furniture. Not everyone remembers, when they're writing fanfiction about movie nights, that Nick's couch normally faces his fireplace. The television (all three versions of Nick's television, that is, including the big-screen in third season) is way the heck over by the stairs! :-)

I'm glad you enjoyed it. It was a lot of fun to do. I love the single kernel of popcorn that remained on Nick's collar.

If someone did an informal poll of FK fic authors I wonder how many of them would say that they incorporated "movie night" into a fic in some manner. It does pop up a lot. And I love that canon tells us what types of movies Nick gravitates towards. I could be wrong but I don't believe the Harryhausen movie from "Father Figure" for instance was mentioned in the script. It's a nice and unexpected character tidbit compliments of the props department. :-)

Three versions of his TV you say? Hmm, I'll have to look for them. I always get sidetracked trying to see whether or not the tool box next to the motorcycle ever moves. My own personal fanon there is that Nick is always tinkering around and trying to get it to work.

Something interesting I caught while capping this scene was the movement of the set pieces that created the "wall" where the TV sat to allow for camera movement in the opening wide shot of Nick and Natalie. I'd never noticed it while watching the episode on a television but one of the benefits of watching on a computer is that it allows for closer inspection of a scene. The moving "walls" jumped out at me.
