Fangirl Challenge: [9/60] Female Celebrities » Crystal Reed
"Don’t ever let anybody tell you you can’t. My mum and dad never wanted me to be an actress. They didn’t want me to be in acting at all. In fact, I remember telling them I wanted to go to college for theatre and my mum cried and said, “There’s no way,” and my dad sat me down very calmly one day and he said, “Why don’t you just go into broadcasting, and you can be a journalist. That’s acting, you’re reading your lines,” and I was like, “No dad, it’s not. That’s so sweet of you, but it’s not.” I had to overcome many things, many people telling me no. If you want it, and you believe in it, you have to do it. And I know it’s silly, and I know I’m kind of irrationally optimistic, but you have to be and you can’t really have another plan, because you’re going to fall back on it.”

The 100 Character Appreciation Posts Day Two: Octavia Blake

so I know this blog is primarily Bellarke but I feel like I have to mention Octavia. 

When we first meet Octavia she comes across and this really annoying prissy that flirts with everyone and is just a bit of a bitch. But as the series goes on we learn about her past of being forced to hide her entire life so she becomes a bit more understandable.

I think Octavia is quite a relatable character who often displays typical teenage rebellion and her need to do reckless things just because she can, she also symbolizes a girl with an overbearing parent (ahem Bellamy thats’ you), something which most of us can relate to.

Something I love about Octavia is her motives are always with good intentions, her sneaking off under Bellamy’s strict orders not to leave camp to recover the cure for the sickness from Lincoln.

And that leads me on to my next point, I love how Octavia does things knowing full well she could be injured or killed and at the end of the day if you are friends with her, she will not let you down or leave you. Her loyalty is admirable.

I would love to see her with more development and I can’t wait to see her character grow some more, maybe if she had some more responsibility on her shoulders…only time will tell!

The 100 Character Appreciation Posts Day One: Clarke Griffin

Clarke is honest to goodness my favourite character. I love how she is a born leader before getting to the ground. I love how she questions her surroundings, even though all the answers seem to be in front of her, she continues to question, such as Mount Weather.

She was always suspicious from the get go. And she doesn’t stop searching until she has the answers she wants, even if if it means going back into danger. 

I love how Clarke let’s go. It’s obviously something she struggles with and can’t enjoy her surroundings of earth when she first gets to the ground but she soon learns how to take in the moment, such as when Finn pulls her into the water and at first she hates it but her stiff upper lip soon melts away and Clarke enjoys the water, something which would be very exciting to someone who has never been in a river before!

Another thing I really admire Clarke for is her ability to stand up for what she believes in, even if it means getting into danger, such as aligning with the grounders and going up against Bellamy in the early days.

She can also admit when she is wrong, something which she takes in her stride. 

All in all, Clarke is incredibly admirable and I love her to death and I can’t wait to see some more development in her character and see how she deals with the death of Finn

Fangirl Challenge: [10/60] Female Celebrities » Lauren Jauregui
"Sometimes my cheeks are too red and I get embarrassed. Sometimes I don’t like my nose, or my hair, or my body, or anything for that matter. I used to be so insecure about every piece of myself and as I’ve grown up and gotten to experience the fact that I’m not the only girl in the world who feels that way, I’ve learned that loving yourself is worth your time. There are days that its hard and there are days you may feel awful because you will never look like that person, think like that person, be like that person, but always keep in mind that that person will never be you.”

The 100Fangirl Challenge Favourite Characters [3] -Anya

I honestly have no word to describe how awesome Anya is. Right from the first moment I saw Anya in a scene, I knew she was going to be one badass Character.

I LOVE the fact the 100 has strong, powerful female characters that are leaders and commanders, we need more of than in our world. 

One little sidenote, one thing I love about grounders in general is they don’t discriminate between genders, I feel like they have achieved gender equality more than we ever have. 

Anya is a perfect example of that. Her tribe respects her and follows her every command. 

Back to Anya, I love how freaking loyal she is. When she escapes Mt Doom, sorry, Mt Weather, after everything she went through, her first thought is to go back and save her people, even though it means her probable death.

I also love her and Clarke how they seem to always be trying to prove herself to Clarke and though she doesn’t admit it, I liked to believe she was trying to save Clarke from the Mountain men when Clarke was outnumbered.

I just, when Anya came riding in on that horse in her first scene, she looked so badass it was unreal omg. 

I mean, I just love Anya, for being Anya tbh….

ORANGE IS THE NEW BLACK.

❛ Miss Chapman, no one’s gonna mess with you here unless you let them. This isn’t Oz. Women fight with gossip and rumors. They might peg you for rich and try to hit you up for a commissary. And there are lesbians. They’re not gonna bother you. They’ll try to be your friend, just stay away from them. I want you to understand, you do not have to have lesbian sex.

↳ THE VAMPIRE DIARIES.

❛ Dear diary, today will be different. It has to be. I will smile, and it will be believable. My smile will say “I’m fine, thank you.” “Yes, I feel much better.” I will no longer be the sad little girl who lost her parents. I will start fresh, be someone new. It’s the only way I’ll make it through. ❜
