- When he awoke from dreams of her, only to find himself under the mountain lying next to Amarantha. To wake from dreams of her nimble hands creating art and see the woman who used him for her own personal gain.
-When he finally saw her, actually saw her, to find her surrounded my faeries with the intent of killing her. I mean seriously how did he not rip them all to shreds?
-To return to the Spring Court and see her- his ONE SOURCE of happiness, with the man who killed his mother and sister. Tamlin took everything from Rhys, and at that point, also took Feyre.
-IN ADDITION, she was thinking of Tamlin sexually. We need to give him A LOT of credit.
-When he stumbled in on Feyre and Tamlin in their short moments of peace, ONLY TO SEE that Tamlin had used their short time to FUCK, for gods sake. When he wanted to see her escape, to live.
-When he kissed her and had to pretend it was just for the sake of the charade. When he had to look into her eyes and see disgust at what he did.
-When Feyre “died,” all while he had just realized the bond. JUST when he learned how much she mattered to him, she was taken from him. Killed by the woman who tormented him for 50 years. GOOD GOD SARAH.
-And when she was alive once more, she ran into the arms of his enemy. Looked to him for comfort.
-To be awoken every night with images of her puking, with no one to help her. He couldn’t comfort her in any way.
-When, 3 months later, he heard her plea, and winnowed to her wedding. When he saw her once again in the state of skin and bones, starved. Next to the man that neglected her into this state. HOW THE FREAK DID HE NOT KILL ALL OF THE FAE NOBILITY
*side note: i know it wasn’t touched up on much- only with a “get out of that atrocious dress” sorta thing, but- to see the woman who had 1) painted beautiful skies 2) survived the trials 3) saved all the courts DRESSED UP in a fluffy gown that in no way showed her strength. Her beauty. Her triumphs. AS A TROPHY OF TAMLIN.
-To see her hate him for saving her. For rescuing her from a toxic relationship. Honestly Feyre I know you’re stubborn but if a hot sexy dark guy whisks you away to a beautiful hidden city you better damn well appreciate it. I get it though. You might be slow, but you got it eventually.
-To think that they’re friendship was growing, only to see her insult him again or question his values.
-To once again hear her cry, to see her locked up and afraid, and not bust the door down and kill Tamlin in the process. OML RHYSAND YOU STRONG BAT YOU<3
-To see her smile, unflinchingly, at TARQUIN OF ALL PEOPLE. The smile he wanted for himself. He wanted to be selfish for once. He wanted Feyre to smile for him, and him only.
-To not tell her everything on Starfall, only because he wanted her to forge her own path- whether that meant she was with him or someone else.
We all know that I’m a little bit peeved at my girl Clarke right now, but you guys have got to stop saying Clarke doesn’t love/need/care about Bellamy when the narrative explicitly states over and over that she absolutely does.
In honor of my frustration have a list of my favorite “Clarke Griffin loves/trusts/needs/cares for Bellamy Blake” moments. (Note-this is not even close to being all the moments and mostly consists of verbal confirmation of feelings).
I have included links for each scene which you can watch by clicking the Episode Number. When you watch the scene make sure you focus on Clarke’s facial expressions and her tone. I’d also like to point out that each Season has more Clarke related Bellamy feels than the Season before it even as Bellamy and Clarke spend less physical time together and in Season 3-the Season were Clarke was the most detached from her people as a whole, the obvious expressions of affection for Bellamy still increased!)
1. “Hey, you saved my life today. You may be a total ass half the time, but I need you. We all need you.” (Day Trip-108)
2. “When you sent us down here, you sent us to die, but miraculously, most of us are still alive. In large part that is because of him. Because of Bellamy. He’s one of us and he deserves to be pardoned of his crimes just like the rest of us.” (Day Trip-108)
6. “No, he can’t. We can’t do this without you, Bellamy.” (
We Are Grounders – Part II-113)
7. “I want you to say that you’re with us….I gave them an easy choice, but 5 minutes ago, they were willing to fight and die for you. You inspire them. And I’m afraid we’re gonna need that again before this day is through.” (
We Are Grounders – Part II-113)
8. “You did good here, Bellamy.” (
We Are Grounders – Part II-113)
9. “Wait, Bellamy’s not back yet.” (We Are Grounders
– Part II-113)
10. “He’s never gonna make it. Bellamy, run!”
(We Are Grounders – Part II-113)
11. “He’s killing him.”
(We Are Grounders – Part II-113)
1. “Finn and Bellamy? I thought they were dead. I thought they were dead. I thought they were dead.” (Human Trials-205)
2. “Bellamy.”-and that hug, you know the one (Human Trials-205)
14. “She’ll see how special you are.” (We Will Rise-406)
And again-these are not all the moments that indicate that Clarke has feelings for Bellamy. So many of you all are frustrated with what you perceive as Clarke’s lack of care for Bellamy that you fail to recognize one of the most realistic portrayals of human love on this show. You also need to remember that not everyone loves/displays love in the same way. While Bellamy is more open with his emotions (which makes sense considering he is the “heart”), Clarke tends to keep her feelings shuttered until they come bubbling out.
Of note? Clarke has canonically shown more depth of emotion for Bellamy, her “platonic” partner than she has for any of her canon romantic love interests.
So can we PLEASE just stop with the “Clarke doesn’t care about Bellamy” rhetoric now?

Incriminating Facts that the Criminal Jury Was Not Permitted or Able to Consider
1. Simpson did not testify at his criminal trial. Defense attorneys will almost always call as a witness an articulate client that they believe to be innocent.
2. Subsequent to the trial defense attorneys talking about the trial have been careful to say “the jury did the right thing,” while not stating that Simpson was in fact innocent.
3. Subsequent to the trial, Simpson has devoted no real effort to tracking down the “real killer,” nor has any significant evidence surfaced suggesting that the killer was anyone other than Simpson.
4. The jury was not allowed to hear testimony concerning Simpson’s rumored jailhouse confession to Rosie Grier.
5. Subsequent to the criminal trial other evidence of Simpson’s guilt surfaced. The most significant of the new evidence may have been photographs of Simpson wearing Bruno Magli shoes. The new evidence, together with much of the evidence considered in the criminal trial, convinced a civil jury that Simpson murdered Nicole Brown and Ronald Goldman.
6. In his 2007 book, If I Did It, Simpson (for all intents and purposes) confessed. The book describes in detail events leading up to the moment of the murders.
Gyms? How to set up a membership, any tricks to get a discount that you know of, what to do when you're there, how not to feel awkward, dealing with creepy guys, etc?
Finding Mr. Right
1. Set your priorities. Before doing any legwork (ahaha) decide what YOU are looking for in your gym. Here are some things to consider:
How far are you willing to travel?
What workouts are you looking to do?
What time do you want to exercise?
What is your gym budget?
2. Start researching. Once you have your baseline wants and needs decided, start doing some research on your local area gyms. Now that you’ve already decided what you’re looking for, it’ll be easy to cross of gyms that don’t fit your criteria. Try to find at least three venues that appeal to you.
3. Free trial/discounted trial. Nowadays, most gyms offer free trials or discounted trials. This gives you an opportunity to scope out any amenities or disadvantages while getting a cheap workout. If you are nervous about going to a new gym alone, convince a friend to go with you. Don’t sign a contract until you’ve sampled the goods! I’d also advise you to cross any gyms off your list that won’t give you a trial.
4. Ask about fees. During your free trial, consult with a gym employee and find out exactly what you will pay as a new member. Don’t get a ballpark amount, have them calculate the exact expense. If they can’t give you an exact expense, run. Ask:
Are there any discounts that you’re eligible for? Are there student discounts?
Are there different bundles that the gym offers, or is it a flat rate?
Are there extra fees like equipment fees or locker fees?
Is there a rewards program?
5. Decision time. After sampling different gyms in your locale, decide on the gym that best fits your needs. Is price more important than distance? Is there a gym that is close and cheap?
Creating Your Routine
1. Research. Dig around on the interwebs and check out different workouts. Do you care more about core strength or building muscle? Do you want to increase your mile speed or your endurance? Ask your fit looking friends or coworkers what workouts they enjoy.
2. Trial session. During your free or discounted trial, try out some of the different machines. If you are unsure of how a machine works, ask an employee so that you don’t inadvertently hurt yourself. Observe the environment around you. Is it calm? Welcoming? Productive?
3. Plan it. After researching and trying things out, come up with a fitness plan. In my experience, it’s more effective to plan out every moment of your workout so that you don’t give yourself any time to twiddle your thumbs. Make sure to alternate exercises and to allow yourself fifteen minutes to warm up.
4. Try it out! After registering at a gym, try out your new routine. Allow yourself the space to tweak anything that doesn’t feel right. It’s okay to start slow, be confident that you will eventually build all the strength and skills that you desire. It’s more important to leave feeling proud of yourself and excited to come back than it is to go home feeling miserable and upset.
5. Set a goal. Set a goal for several months down the road, based on what skills you would like to improve. Choose a specific day, and decide to treat yourself on said day if you accomplish said goal. The goal can be as simple as going to the gym twice a week, or as complicated as losing five pounds. Just make sure to properly reward yourself at the end of that time, a small incentive to keep you going!
Doing Your Own Thing
1. Bring your tunes. Make yourself a Barney Stimpson “All Rise” mix to get yourself pumped for your workout. The right music can set the tone for productivity! This will also deter strange men from talking to you, and if they try, just ignore them and pretend you can’t hear them or that you can’t speak English.
2. Buddy up. The buddy system is a great way to help motivate you to keep returning to the gym. Find a willing friend or coworker (key word is willing here, don’t assume that this will be the one time that you friend who always bails comes through because I promise you they won’t) and sign up with them. This can also help you feel more comfortable in your surroundings.
3. Gather your materials. Don’t drop big bucks on gym accessories before you’ve even solidified your routine. Newbies do not always make the most informed purchasing decisions! Use a pair of old sweatpants and a ratty shirt and workout in these until you know what feels good for your body. Maybe your reward at the end of a couple months is upgrading to new materials? Always, always, always bring plenty of water!
4. Safe. A gym is a place for you to feel safe and productive. If somebody is bothering you, talk to a staff member about it ASAP. If the problem persists, talk to a manager about getting a refund and move to a more comfortable space. It’s not worth spending money on something that makes you feel uneasy, there are lots of other gyms out there that will offer you the peace of mind. You can’t expect results without peace of mind.
5. Remember. The gym is a place to get motivated! Everyone there is in the same position that you are in, and nobody is going to waste their money by focusing on you instead of their workout. Stay present, care about yourself, and do others the same courtesy that you want done to you!
PS: Most colleges have gym facilities that are absolutely free for students! Don’t assume that just because its your college that it’s not a “real gym”. Try it out! Hope this helps!
