My Last Minute Attempt To Restore Hope In The Brallie Fandom

Episode 4x09 - “New York”

Air Date: August 22, 2016

     “Brandon travels to New York City for his Juilliard audition and meets a girl who forces him to take a hard look at his relationship with Cortney.”

Things To Look Forward To:

  • Flashbacks!!! (i.e. Jonnor sneak peek flashback. And a little birdy (aka the group of fans who toured the set for the fosters fan event) told us to expect Lena with some straight hair…) Perhaps we’ll get some good ones of Brandon. Or Brallie. Or ya know, something. anything.)
  • Wade Solomon, a writer for the show, says it’s a good Brandon episode!!!
  • Brandon’s (sure to be magnificent) audition for Juilliard! No matter what he plays you bet your ass I’m gonna be sitting there saying it’s about Callie.
  • Brandon talking to that blonde girl in New York. (The Brallie Guardian Angel *cough* click HERE for my wildly optimistic theory *cough*). But even besides the crazy speculation, I know we’ll get some talk of “true love” and things that make him question his relationship with Cort. And on the other hand - us shippers can surely relate back to Brallie.
  • The actress who plays this girl said she liked the sound of the “Brallie Guardian Angel” !! ! !! ! ! ! ! ! !!!! ! ! (x)
  • She also follows only David and Maia on twitter. (did she have a seen with Maia???? we shall find out soon!) (x)

Feel free to share any and all thoughts in my ask box! Negative, positive, somewhere in between, or all over the place, I got you!

Episode 4x10 - “Collateral Damage” 

Air Date: August 29, 2016

    “Callie and the family set up a “Justice for Jack” booth at a music festival in an effort to stop Justine’s foster care bill, but Callie’s persistence in reopening Kyle’s murder case lands her in a dangerous situation.”

Things To Look Forward To:

  • CorBran is over and CorBran is gone. CorBran’s decided it’s time to move on…. (if you get this reference, let’s be best friends)
  • The end of AJ/Aaron arc??? One of the synopsis’ made it seem as if their storyline and tension came to a head. This might cause problems for Callie… 
  • Sophia is in the episode!
  • Someone’s Little Sister is in the episode!
  • 2x10 vibes everywhere
  • Also the iconic Episode Number 10 Brallie KISS RULE.

More info on the episode HERE, for your own personal theorizing! Especially as it updates throughout the week. (Expect sneak peeks videos Tuesday!) Same goes as I said above… ask box is open 24/7.

Let’s keep the Brallie hope alive!!! Before this DREADFUL hiatus.

Predictions for 4x09 / / Long over due text post with me complaining about everything.

So before I get into it I just wanna say that this is definitely something that I’ve been meaning to do for the last three episodes but I just haven’t wanted to put any energy in it because let’s be real - this season has been mostly pointless and has made me mad as hell.

I’m bored with this show, and that’s really saying it lightly. Everything that I possibly could have predicted has basically continued to happen and here are some basic examples so ya’ll know what I’m referring to.

  • We alllll knew Cortneys ass was going to be in the majority of the A season. Did we think she was gonna be here until 4x09? probably not…but you get the point.
  • + we alllll knew Brandon’s ass was going to be playing baby daddy and making reckless decisions. It’s not something that surprises me…in fact this is the least surprising thing that’s happened throughout 4A. It’s consistent.
  • AJ and Callie…like…no surprise there. Did I think he would be around this long? Hell no. I really thought that would have fizzled out by 4x08 top but ya know here we are.
  • Callie’s in a love triangle? Wow that’s something so new and unexpected. I wonder what will happen. 
  • Anyways

What I’m trying to really get though is that we ain’t dumb. We’ve been here for long enough to know that this show has a pattern.

And amoung all the bitching that I tend to do when I think about what they’ve done to Brallie…cause holy shit are they literally this close to ruining it for me…I’ve actually really enjoyed the more main storylines.

I love Callie’s senior project idea…but of course wish we could have seen more. Maybe some flashbacks of little Callie and Jude in different foster homes (what the heck happened to that little actress that was supposed to be playing little Callie??!) 

I love detective Callie and just generally how bad ass she’s seeming this season. I very lowkey have a problem with authority so it generally makes me happy to see people stand up for what’s right and lash out and that’s exactly what Callie’s given me this season. A+

I actually love  Aaron and I pray to whatever is holy and good that he stays AS A FRIEND because to be completely fucking honest (as always) I hate love triangles with every ounce of fire that lives in my soul and…ya know. Callie’s basically been in constant love triangle since season one. 

Mariana and Jesus have actually been keeping me engaged with all they’ve got going on…



And then of course Stef and Lena and all the stuff with the house has been fun…


  • The Quinns
  • Daphne
  • Justina
  • Brooke
  • GU
  • Brallie secret
  • Is Callie applying for college too?

Like there are just soooo many things that they brush over and then address later and I seriously find myself unable to keep up. It’s like episode one and two are g r e a t and then three through eight are whatever, and then nine and ten they just randomly bring stuff back up from the end of the previous season or even stuff from the first episode and I feel like I’m apart of that Mr. Krabs meme where the room is spinning and then the final episode ends and ur just like “wtf now I gotta wait six months for this shit show to come back”

Moving on. Like seriously my main fucking complaint are these side relationships. AJ and Cort need to go. I hate how Brandon’s talent get’s swept under the rug because of how much they focus on his love life and I hate how AJ hasn’t had a solid story line since they first introduced his character back in 3A..It just all seems so unnecessary.

This is so long and I’m sorry bout it but I’ve been holding in a lot for a while and I just needed to take a few and get it out. as for my 4x09 predictions…the hope is low but here ya go ;)

  • I think Lena’s parents are going to be the ones getting the divorce. 
  • They’re going to draw this “selling the house” thing until the last second. It ain’t gonna happen. (but if it does props to them cause they really need to make some kind of big move at this point.)
  • The Nick/Mat/Mariana thing is going to start boiling

*mic drop* the end.

I really love playing with my natural hair.

Washing it is something I always look forward to. Twisting it, finger combing it, adding product into it, defining the curls, getting frustrated with the 2 different textures I have. It’s so fun to me, no matter how long it takes. I’d probably get done fixing my hair a lot faster if I wasn’t playing in it so much. 

anonymous asked:

What if Callie is physically injured by someone as revenge for her snooping? B can get into Julliard but pass, claiming he doesn't want to stretch the family's finances any further, as now they need to pay for physical therapy. Later, B can admit to Callie that he didn't want to leave her after what had happened. At some point, Lena or Stef can catch a glimpse of him helping her with her physical therapy (maybe witness the electricity?) and realize the depth of their connection.

OH I could get with this it would be a very juicy storyline and if fanfics have taught us anything it is that fear of losing someone bring true emotions to the surface you are unable to hide them at least not well and not to people who are now paying attention. It would also make for a great parallel on how B got hurt and had to fight his way back to classical music as an composer with Callie’s help and little pushes.  I like this one lots of emotion and so much potential for drama.  Yes please and thank you.

if you have 3c-4c hair I would highly recommend shea moisture’s jamaican black castor oil hair masque. it’s a really nice deep conditioner, I’ve been natural for coming on 3 years and Ive never had a product that’s exceeded my expectations like this one did. it does have a kind of weird smell but this is my first time using it and I already don’t mind it. I hadn’t detangled my hair in about 3 weeks it had been up in a bun the whole time and was horribly tangled. I shampooed, conditioned, did a little detangling with a wide tooth comb so the dc would work better, dc’d for 20 minutes (w a plastic cap & a dc cap over that) and my hair is sooooooooo soft!

I love all of the characters from the frozen arc but Anna was my favorite. She was amazing to watch especially her scenes with Elsa and Kristoff. She was funny, adorable, and sweet. Her and Elsa had a great relationship as well as her and Kristoff. Plus the scene where she forces Rumple to take her home was my favorite with her list of demands and the fact that she got to control Rumple in the first place.
