(CITY NOISE) [Acoustic guitar music plays] [Acoustic guitar music continues] (PEOPLE TALKING) [Acoustic guitar music becomes more upbeat] [Upbeat acoustic guitar music continues] [Acoustic guitar music begins to fade] (FOOTSTEPS) TES: Hi, I’m gonna sit with you for just a minute. JANE: Okay… JANE: Can I ask why? TES: I’m avoiding someone. JANE: Who are you avoiding? TES: These two asshats from Lou’s. JANE: Oh…and um, why are you avoiding these…asshats? (TES LAUGHS) TES: I threw my drink on one of them. He insisted I take it and I insisted that I don’t take vodka cranberries from brainless frat scum. JANE: I’ve never had one of those before but, a free drink doesn’t sound that bad. TES: Yeah. Well, let’s just say handsy douche bags aren’t my type. JANE: And…what exactly is your type? TES: Well, since you asked Nancy Drew… I’d have to say it’s the straightedge loner chick who spends her Saturday nights reading feminist literature alone in the dark (FLICKS LIGHTER) TES: Obviously. JANE: Well, you’re out of luck…I hate leather. TES: Please tell me you’re not a vegan. Because that’s an already bigger cliche than this Manic Pixie dream girl vibe you’ve already got going for ya. JANE: For your information, this is a hot chocolate. TES: Hot chocolate?! Wow, I underestimated you. You are a badass (FLICKS LIGHTER) after all. TES: Oh shit, it’s them! Act natural. [Piano music plays] TES: You know, that was my favorite book in high school. (LIGHTER FLICK) TES: Have you had your awakening yet? [Piano music continues] TES: So Nancy… They gone? JANE: Yeah, yeah. Coast is clear. They went the other way. [Piano music fades out] (CITY NOISE FADES IN) JANE: So, what are those guys gonna do when they find you? TES: I don’t know. They probably want me to pay the dry-cleaning bill or something. JANE: I think that’s a reasonable request. TES: Yeah, not for me. I’m broke. TES: Well…thanks for the cover. (FLICKS LIGHTER) TES: Catch ya later, Nancy. (FOOTSTEPS) [Acoustic guitar music plays] [Acoustic guitar music continues] [Acoustic guitar music begins to fade] (LIGHTER FLICKS) (CITY NOISE) (TES LAUGHS) TES: You’re quite the detective, Nancy. JANE: It’s, uh, Jane actually. TES: Wow, couldn’t choose a better fitting name for the aesthetic. JANE: What’s that supposed to mean? Let me guess, your name is something hip and edgy like… Ruby or Pandora No wait, Axl! TES: I’m flattered believe me. It’s Tes, but I might just have to change it. Axl has a nice ring to it. (TES LAUGHS) (MENS’ VOICES APPROACHING) (MEN APPROACHING) FRAT GUY 1: I spent $75 on this shirt and she just throws a drink in my face, man. It’s messed up, dude.
FRAT GUY 2: Fuck her, man. Fuck her. Seriously. FRAT GUY 1: Yo, yo. What’s going on here? Who’s this?
FRAT GUY 2: Yo, maybe she’s seen her. FRAT GUY 2: Hey, did you see a girl in a leather jacket around here? JANE: Oh, yeah Axl? Someone said she caused a scene down at Lou’s…typical. JANE: You must be the victim? FRAT GUY 1: Yeah, stupid bitch ruined my brand-new polo. FRAT GUY 2: So, have you seen her or what? JANE: Uh, yeah, she went across the street to Cha-Cha’s. FRAT GUY 1: Dude, let’s go. FRAT GUY 1: She owes me a new shirt. She’s paying for this and like 5 rails. (VOICES FADE) [Piano music with wooing girls plays] TES: Have to hand it to you, Nancy, that was bad ass. TES: Alright, alright – JANE. That was pretty cool. TES: So, you’ve never had a vodka cranberry? Well in that case, I’ll make it a double. (JANE LAUGHS) JANE: Just as long as you promise not to throw it on me. (LIGHTER FLICK) TES: I promise.

  1. this short film gave me goosebumps, it was absolutely amazing., the whole lighter thing with tess adds a "dramatic" effect, almost comedy-like. in my opinion, each story/film should have at least one element to make it original + unique, and i think the lighter scenario captured just that. we need more! good job! <3 however, one small question? towards the end, jane tries to guess tess' "stereotypical, edgy" name, but before tess left at 4:01, she said "i'm brooke," but i could have heard wrong or maybe even misinterpreted this. was this a plot hole/ simple mistake or am i missing something? hehe <3<3 thank you!!

  2. I like it cause it’s gay and the dialogue is cool but I just can’t stop imagining what my reaction would be if someone sparked a lighter in the middle of conversation for no reason

  3. obv im gay do i clicked instantly but most of the things in here are cringy af. how they met, how tess approached her, how jane asked questions instantly, the lighter, the close-ups, the acting. there's a lot of room for improvement tho, cute story

  4. Wow if that's natural I have been doing many things wrong lol
    ❤❤👏👏👏👏👏 amazing film

  5. Yes…..Act natural has a whole new meaning for me now. watching this makes me wanna “act natural” with someone really bad x0x

  8. This was pretty cool Kinda wish this sorta thing would happen to me in real life. xD Good job on this short film. I loved it!

  9. 1:00 the panic of a guy approaching me for any reason that's probably what I look like. It took me so long to realize it was because I was a lesbian and not just because guys make me uncomfortable bc I am "shy" its really just me not functioning hating every minute and hoping they go away, I thought that was how you're supposed to feel about it for the longest time. 1:30 the genuine interest and easy banter that is exciting and fun and doesn't feel like torture, lovely

  10. This was really well done I love the cinematography! I would love for you to watch my LGBTQ+ short film Touch Me Not – I would love your opinion 🌈 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AkCwD_giZtY

  11. Okay maybe I’m too much of a Creampuff and my brain is too biased but Tess and Jane have a strong Carmilla/Laura vibe

  12. Well. If I didn't already know, Tess bouncing in with her red lips and black leather and lighter and sexy confidence would have been my "oh shit I'm gay" moment. 😂😍 Seriously had to pause and screech into my pillow.

  13. How come tow lisbian are vegan or vegetarian. How they can eat one onther pussy .hhhh is pussy made from meat?

  14. Can we appreciate how the subtitles in the last scene just say
    [Piano music with wooing girls continues]

  15. The whole lighter thing was really petty and cringey but other than that I loved the film I just came out lesbian to my mom and my grandma the other day they didn't judge me they love me for who I am and I'm happy

    (Btw I'm on my mom account)😂🌈

  16. The lighter….. made me think , alot. About Tess back story… I found it a beautiful touch to her mysterious /edgy vibe. I wish I could pick up girls this easy
