Dori was fussing over you and binding a minor scratch you’d acquired during the troll fight, but your leg was jittering impatiently. You wanted to stand up, move around, stretch even. The risk of the oncoming orc chase was biting at the back of your mind. Trolls had been a breeze compared to what you would face.

“Honestly, Dori, it’s just a scratch,” you snapped, pulling your arm away. “I’m fine.”

He continued to scold and tell you of the risks of infections but you had zoned out, scanning the group for a certain golden-headed dwarf. Once you found him, you saw he was already looking at you, and he smiled. Your heart swelled at the sight and you made your way over to him, though you were intercepted by Thorin himself. You cursed inwardly and tried not to look too sour. His arms were crossed again, his face cold like stone and you tried to imitate the expression, if only to appear tougher than you were.

The Seven+Nico and Reyna’s  Ringtones

If the Seven+Nico and Reyna were able to have phones, this is what I think their ringtones would be.

Percy’s: Just Keep Swimming
Annabeth’s:  the “signal” ringtone on the iPhone. Something practical yet unique so she knows it’s her phone that is ringing and not someone else’s.
Leo’s: Girl on Fire
Piper’s: Her ringtone is always changing.
Jason’s: The Superman theme song
Frank’s: Frank would have a recording in Hazel’s voice saying “Frank, please pick up your phone”.
Hazel’s: Just the normal ringtone that comes with the phone because she wouldn’t know how to change it.
Nico’s: I’m Not Okay (I Promise)
Reyna’s: Single Ladies (Put a Ring on it)

You are Special

You couldn’t help but smile, remembering Ori who asked you to show him a demonstration of your ability while you dry yourself by the shoreline of a small lake near the campsite. How couldn’t you help it? Ori is a sweet and very curious dwarf who wants to know as much as he can in this quest.

Watch Out Below (2)

Part 1

“All I wanted to do was go for a nice relaxing hike,” You rambled on to yourself as you walked along with the rather terrifying bald man, “That’s all.”

“For the last time,” He growled over to you, “Would ya be quiet?”

“Quiet?” You looked to him with wide eyes, your nerves out of control, “I’m lost. I don’t know where I am. I’m pretty sure I’m dead. Oh god, is this what death feels like? Are you death?”

“For Mahal’s sake, girl,” He nudged you forward gruffly, “You best settle yourself down before I do it for you.”

“What does that mean?” You could not help your heightened tone, your anxiety had finally kicked in and it was not letting up, “Oh god, oh god.”

Suffering Has Its Purpose

I want to make it clear, I’m not putting this season of Reign down because my favorite couples aren’t together (my favorite couples weren’t together in the first season either). I’m not mad at this show because I want my favorite ships to get together and be happy, happy, happy. No, I’m mad because people are breaking up and cheating on each other or being raped or abused for no reason other than to cause potential romantic drama and to set up love triangles…love triangles that have no purpose other than to put a damper on “true wuv” and cause more angst. 

I’m fine with Greer and Leith breaking up, in fact I think their backslide didn’t make much sense in the first place from Greer’s POV other than her being lonely, and I perfectly understand her reasons for not continuing with Leith. I’m mad that Castleroy was tossed aside after having him marrying Greer and making it a big deal that she chose him….only for the show to get rid of him after he appeared in only two more episodes–if they weren’t going to have him on the show much then there was no reason for her to marry him. Though I have to say Greer’s problematic love life has had some of a purpose this season and has actually made her character grow, a growth which I hope will stick with her next season (unlike Kenna who grew some at the end of last season and her character development was bludgeoned and pushed aside early on in season 2). 

Just about every other love triangle and romantic suffering on this show hasn’t had much of a purpose than to cause momentary angst and to give characters a reason to cheat. 

Do we get to see Catherine help take charge and help Francis rule? No, instead of being the strong, independent bad-ass from last season, instead Catherine spends most of this season making out with ghost Henri, missing ghost Henri, being tormented by her ghost children, and sleeping with Narcisse. Um…what happened to her character? And the only reason she and Narcisse are together at the moment is to put a wedge between Narcisse and Lola’s possible romance, there’s no other reason but that.

Do we get to see Mary and Francis rule together? Nope, instead Mary berates Francis, Francis lets everyone walk over him (up until recently), and the two are torn apart for another love triangle which isn’t nearly as well written as the love triangle in season 1, but even the Mary/Bash/Francis love triangle was problematic, but it looks near perfect compared to the mess that is Conde/Mary/Francis. Mary gives big speeches and likes to remind people that’s she a queen but she NEVER does anything ANYONE in charge would do, she only thinks about herself, and is a HORRIBLE queen, wife, friend, and person. 

Do we get to see Kenna and Bash work out married life? Nope. They’re barely in the first few episodes though they seem pretty happy there, but then out of nowhere romantic bullshit angst comes along and ruins everything for no apparent reason other than to create more romantic drama. WHY??? Neither Kenna or Bash have learned anything from this, every episode is nearly the same with the two of them, and they haven’t grown at all, in fact all of the character development and progression they’ve made has disappeared and they’ve since become shallow remains of themselves. Instead of being loyal and fierce, Kenna is now all about sex. Instead of being brave, caring, and everyone’s favorite Bastard, Bash has become…a whiny, boring bastard. 

Lola has grown some this season, but the only time her character has anything to do is when she’s with a man, like Francis or Narcisse, and even those scenes have forced romantic undertones. 

Instead of giving Louis Bourbon a personality, we instead are subjected to his wanting sex and power while furrowing his eyebrows constantly, This character could have been freaking amazing, one the audience could root for and feel sorry for at the same time, but now…he’s so boring…and most of the viewers can’t wait until he dies, in fact they’re counting down the days. He wasn’t built up as a proper villain, he wasn’t given anything really, instead the writers pushed him together with Mary and then with Elizabeth instead of developing his character, giving him a reason to do what he does, and feel the way he does. It’s so disappointing because I think the real Louis de Bourbon is one of the most fascinating figures from this time period, a man who inspired people, had charisma, was a good leader, a heroic underdog at war with his religious beliefs and his lustful side while trying to survive in a country that wants him and all others that share his beliefs dead. How could the writers have messed up such a wonderful character? I don’t know how it’s possible, but they have screwed up every single amazing storyline that was gift wrapped and left at their doorstep, which they then decided to stomp on, piss on, and then hand back to the viewers. How is it possible for them to screw almost everything up? You’d think it’d be impossible, but by god they’ve done it somehow. 

And all of this focus on love triangles and boring characters’ boring love lives is soooooo boooooring and repetitive, it makes the plot move at a glacial pace, most episodes end up feeling the same or are filled with repetitive or filler scenes which are nearly the same as what we just saw in the episode before. The writers have more than proven they can’t handle love triangles and these sort of story lines, and yet they focus on them time and time again, moving away from this show’s strengths and the writers’ strengths. 

How is it possible for the writers to continually screw up this much?

Oh You Pretty Things - David Bowie

Gotta make way for the Homo Superior…

Meanwhile in another part of London David Bowie was channelling Aleister Crowley and Friedrich Nietzsche for his own version of our collective space future. The human race, as we know it, is doomed, he tells us, and the coming race will be an alliance between aliens and our children. Bowie was picking up on a metaphor for the times: the true aliens amongst us were the kids. Every fucked up teenager hearing this knew it meant them. The future was theirs and the post-war world of their parents was finished. In typical pop culture scavenging mode Bowie was fusing ideas from different sources to create a prophetic cosmic future, an evolutionary super race born of Nietzsce’s Ubermench and Crowley’s Aeon of Horus with a modish coating of space age sci-fi. Considering ’homo sapiens have outgrown their use’, its remarkably detached, jaunty even, that piano as warm as the log on the fire.

Harry's baked Louis a mint-chocolate birthday cake! They'll be sharing it with his family at their home. Gemma will spoon feed cake to Ernie and Harry to Doris. And they'll play games in front of the fire and Doris will help Louis open his presents. Anne will kiss Louis on the head and hug him tight like Jay used to. They'll all watch Love Actually together. It's a lovely day with his loved ones.

“Anne will kiss Louis on the head and hug him tight like Jay used to” OUCH
