(is it wrong that i love this scene

anonymous asked:

I think you're one of the few BD shippers who doesn't have anything against BE(correct me if im wrong!) but how do you feel Bonnie saying that Enzo is the love of her life and it seems that he's her number 1 priority? Not gonna lie, it kinda stings. Especially after the development Bamon had, it almost feels like they threw it all away :/

I try to be fair, and on some level I can enjoy their cute scenes even though they still feel heavy-handed and very unearned to me… but I don’t ship it either. 

(I’m also realizing that I just really ship Bamon that hard. That even though I try, my viewing of BE scenes will always be biased. Even if BE was able to give Bonnie what she needs and bring out her best side -and I’m still not convinced that it does- I’m starting to wonder if I’d be happy… because it’s still not Bamon. As someone who aims to prioritize character over ship, that’s something that I’m having trouble accepting, but at the same time, the feelings are what they are.) 

So yeah, I’ve been feeling pretty down about that part, tbh. I understand that Bonnie loves Enzo, and that Bonnie fights for the ones she loves. But Damon is supposed to be on that list too.

(This is going to get very sad and pessimistic re: Bamon, so stop reading if you don’t need that in your life.)

I hate that the flashforwards in s7 were seemingly used to prop every other ship, while tearing ours apart. The Bonnie who cared about Damon more than anyone else in the world is missing. She disappeared when he desiccated, and despite all her “the lady doth protest too much” residual emotion even upon his return, they’re still apparently telling the story where Damon is no longer that important to her. 

And, along the same lines, even though it was Bonnie (and Stefan) who we saw that Damon is actually protecting (even while supposedly having his humanity switch off, which I still don’t get btw), the memories that they show him clinging to are of Elena.

Short of some kind of send-off psych-out for BE/DE like they did to SE in the first couple of episodes of season 4, this appears to be the end of whatever major importance Bonnie and Damon played in each other’s lives in canon, that was given a foundation in earlier seasons and cemented/showcased in s6 and most of s7. It seems that they baited and used us for the views and media excitement as Nina was leaving/gone, and now that they’ve secured their final season, they don’t even feel the need to pay us lip service anymore. 

We’re just back on the fringe like we were in seasons 1-5, getting fewer and fewer scraps, and always between the lines. I want to be wrong, I hope I’m wrong, but I’m just hurting about it too. It definitely stings, like you said.

wasn't the season 1 finale spoiled cause they filmed the snowing reunion on main street? lol. *sigh* don't get me wrong, i love that they DID block out captain swan's first real kiss but they have weird standards if that's too spoilery but a ton of other major plot points were okay to be spoiled hahaha.

Yeah but there was probably a lot less people reporting from the se back then.

Also, the majority of the viewers never see these spoilers so I guess they are writing scenes to happen where they want them to instead of playing to the fandom so I appreciate that.

CHUCK SHURLEY: Some free advice. You ever get back there, you hoard toilet paper. You understand me? Hoard it. Hoard it like it’s made of gold. Because it is. (insp.)

Some rumored Suicide Squad deleted scenes (Harley/Joker):

  1. “Joker and Harley then get into a fight, which ends with Harley pointing a gun at Joker’s head. Joker sweet-talks Harley into lowering the gun, charming her, then backhands her across the face. Afterwards he sweet-talks her again and they kiss.”
  2. “Joker and Harley get into an argument after he rescues her in the hijacked helicopter. In early cuts he reportedly pushes her out to kill her, then the helicopter gets shot down. This was apparently reworked into the helicopter getting shot down first and Joker pushing her out to save her.”
  3. “Joker returns during the final battle in the subway station, face half-burnt from the helicopter crash, which apparently leads to a brief altercation with the Squad. He calls for Harley to escape with him but she refuses for once in order to help her friends, and the Joker escapes after throwing a live grenade at the group to cover his own escape.”
  4. “Removed several scenes with the Joker to repaint his relationship with Harley as more loving rather than abusive.”

Their relationship is so abusive and it is damaging that they tried to make it seem loving by taking out the straight up physical abuse and leaving in the psychological abuse, which isn’t as blatant and would have some not thinking anything of it. If you’re going to have Harley/Joker together then you show how it really is abusive physically and mentally, or don’t have them together at all (which is what I wanted cause fuck the Joker). I think another important scene that should have been kept is #3 where Harley acts out against the Joker and chooses to help her friends because it would show her overcoming his abuse and control and making her own decisions.

But overall, it’s horrible that they removed scenes in order to make their relationship seeming loving when it’s not. He’s an abusive asshole and he treats her like an object or a possession.
