National Treasure Confession!

Originally sent from @rudolphsb9 

Some days I feel like I’m one of five people on the planet who a) actually likes Ian as a character and b) ships him with Shaw. These people deserve better than this.
First of all, thank you so much for your confession and I am so sorry that I didn’t post this sooner because it’s actually a very common ship within the National Treasure fandom. I actually went back to watch the film to analyze the relationship between these two, which was quite an interesting one. First of all, Ian seems to depend more on Shaw than on anyone else in his “gang”. This is shown when Ian demands Shaw to pull out the gun when Ben refuses to tell him any more information while they are still at the Charlotte. Though, on the contrary, Ian’s reaction to Shaw’s death seemed as if his death was un-phasing. As opposed to Abigail’s reaction of a scream and obvious emotional trauma. I do believe that their relationship is often overlooked due to the main focus on the “good guys”. Though their relationship may seem insignificant to the plot, it adds another layer to the characters that make up the story.
As always, please keep on sending your confessions!!

Team National Treasure: we should totally make that happen.

So far we are 6 on the National Treasure Team!!! But yeah we should all rent a movie theater and watch all the NT together and be so passionate together!! Even tough we all probably live on different country or continent ;)))) but yeah it always nice to find people like you in love with these movie!!!!!













Who are the others? I feel like I should know these people.

Yes, we really should arrange to fly somewhere, en masse, rent a theatre and play the National Treasure movies. Or meet in some big city theatre and watch NT3 whenever it finally comes out.

The other i know are
and the runner of
an other personal but who dont necesseraly blog about NT!! But we should totally do a list of the NT team!!! We should totally watch the movie in Washington near the declaration of independance!!!!

Let us list the members, and we should probably create a blog to serve as our hub, to meet and talk NT like crazy.

And I agree with your idea of watching it in DC near the Declaration. Not to mention the President, the two major targets of the first two NT movies, and also great sources of trailer fodder. (Who can forget “I’m gonna steal the Declaration of Independence.” or “I’m gonna kidnap the President of the United States.”?) That would be all kinds of fun, except everywhere you go the staff treats you like a terrorist, which is my least favorite part about that city. Anyway. It’s a good idea, though.

Im going to New York this summer an i already know im gonna take multiple selfie with the trinity church and the Wall Street/Broadway street!!! Ughh yess lets create a colony of NT fan!!!

Let’s do it. I alerted foleyz to the existence of the NT team, if he/she didn’t know already. But yes, there needs to be a lot more of us all congregated somewhere.

YO TEAM NATIONAL TREASURE I AM IN (hey wait that spells TNT how awesome is that) (I’m a she and I DIDN’T KNOW HOW DID I NOT KNOW OH MY GOSH)

Cool, so we’re like, the three fangirls. The TNT thing reminds me of Powell preparing the bricks of C4 to break into the archives with. (At least, I’m pretty sure it was C4.) There are others, like the person who runs heckyeahnationaltreasure and a couple of others, but there should really be more of us. I’m considering establishing a sideblog just for the team so we can congregate and discuss and possibly arrange to all watch NT3 (or NT and NT2. Or both) somewhere or at the same time. Basically to just be a hub for us, like our stolen catering truck!

Yesss do a sideblog for the team!!!!! :)))))


New member welcome nuggetsofthechicken :))))))

… is this something I can become a part of

Yess is should totally make a list!!

Whoa whoa whoa now. This is an actual thing I’m a part of. I’m honored. :’)
