Talon gets a hold of Winston’s unfinished blueprints (through Sombra maybe?) creates the chronal accelerator, and “saves” Tracer before Overwatch. After feeding her with lies about the Slipstream Flight Experiment, why she was selected to be its pilot, etc. Successfully manipulated and now filled with hate for Overwatch for ruining her sex life (can’t take the damn bulky chronal accelerator off ughhhhh), Tracer joins Talon and gets herself a hot purple girlfriend who happens to be her late boss’ ex wife. Also, the Latina freelancer flirts with her every chance she gets. Luckily, Sombra has her translocator or she would have been dead by the hot purple girlfriend’s hand.
Now October week has been and gone what are your top 3 Robron moments of all time?
This would have been difficult before SSW but after it it’s basically impossible! But I did somehow manage to narrow it down to three so here you go, anon:
3. Everyone and their mother knows that I consider the lodge scenes to be up there with some of the best scenes in soap history, so naturally I’ve included my favourite moment from those episodes in my top three:
Robert’s ‘I love you’ with his hand on the trigger was just stunning in terms of writing, characterisation and acting. Both Ryan and Danny knocked it out of the park - Danny’s barely restrained fear as he stared down the barrel of the gun, and Ryan’s emotional disintegration were just utterly breathtaking to watch. But when Robert said “I meant it. I love you.” there really was nothing else I could have wanted from that scene. It was such a perfect way to sew together all the various parts of their relationship and the culmination of emotions which had been surging through them - they have always shared a charged, almost dangerous dynamic, one that sparks as soon as they get close, and one that is liable to ignite into flames given half the chance. But their relationship is also one of intense feeling, they share a connection unlike any either have experienced before, and that moment was a unification of both sides - the peril and the devotion.
But even more than that was the characterisation for Robert. I would say the lodge scenes were the first time we had actually seen the ‘real’ Robert, not just a mask he wore for others but the very roots of his character. We saw him angry, we saw him broken, we saw him terrified. But in that moment when he confessed his love for Aaron… we saw everything. Every emotion he could feel was right there in his expression, in his words, in the way he held himself. It was like someone had opened up his chest so we could all catch a glimpse of the heart within. It was truly a stunning performance and to this day is one of my favourite pieces of writing the show has done for robron.
2. There’s no way I couldn’t include at least one moment from SSW, and it took me a long time to decide on exactly which scene I thought deserved to be included within this top three. But I am invested in Robert’s character more than any other, and so it stands to reason that the moment I pick should predominantly concern him. So I’ve chosen the scene where Robert opens up to Aaron about Jack finding him with another boy.
This scene, for me, was one of the most heartbreaking of the entire week, even including the moments where they were underwater. We had never seen Robert given this attention before in terms of writing or screentime, the focus was entirely on him and his emotions, and Ryan outperformed himself. To get a glimpse into Robert’s past, a part of his past that no one had seen before, was incredible, not to mention the fact that it helped to explain a lot of his actions and emotions with regards to his sexuality. There are so many parts which left me speechless and broken - when Robert said that Vic and Diane didn’t know and Aaron promised not to tell; when Robert defended his father by saying “He wasn’t. He just… he didn’t want a son like me”; the realisation that Robert had literally buried his feelings, or at the very least buried the idea he was anything other than straight, for half his life; the sheer emotion he displayed even while he was holding back tears; and finally, finally, the moment where he said: “I just wanna be myself now… with you”. The entire scene was monumental, both for Robert as a character, but also for the progression of his relationship with Aaron, because it explained so many of the lingering questions we, and Aaron, had about Robert. It truly was a phenomenal moment for both of them.
1. I did wrestle with my conscience as to whether to keep this particular moment as my number one or whether to swap it with one of the other two, but I just can’t see this scene ever being anything other than first in my affections.
Their first kiss, but especially the lead up to their first kiss, was nothing short of perfection. The tension, the expectation, the heart-stopping moment when Aaron walked away and Robert went after him… all of it was incredible. And it’s not just the scene itself, though of course we all know how beautiful it was in terms of writing, direction and acting, but also the knowledge that this was them at the very beginning, on the precipice of something neither fully understood. It was monumental. They both wanted each other, had been wanting each other for a while, but that moment… God, that moment was everything, because it was both of them throwing caution to the wind and just going for it.
I’ve already made a post about how important that first kiss was (link) but the reason I still consider it to be the best robron moment is the fact that neither knew what to expect, neither even knew if the other reciprocated their feelings, but both of them were willing to take the risk. Their entire relationship has been a risk, but somehow they have managed to make it work even when they didn’t. And it all started with that kiss.
oh boy here we go.. jesus this fandom likes to start discourse. why cant we all just agree to let people ship what they want jfc.. also, yes! komaeda is canonly never said to be gay or feel any attraction towards a male character. people say it can be 'implied,' but that doesnt make it anywhere near canon.
plus even if that was a confession he could could be considered bi? With this twisted logic calling him gay could be bi erasure
This, for god’s sake, THIS. Sure, some of the things he said to Hinata can be interpreted as gay. But from interpretation, personal points of view and implications to actually canon facts there’s a huge difference.
Did Komaeda ever state, “Hey, I’m attracted to males!”? No, right? Do we have any canon evidence? No, right? We don’t have a clue about his sexuality. Let me ship what I want.
