THE MOST BEAUTIFUL FRIENDSHIP ON THIS SHOW

anonymous asked:

I love Kirishima. A lot. And I love your blog because it mainly focus on him. I love how he brightens the show and how great his character is. But the thing is I saw some of your posts shipping him with bakugo. I don't ship him with bakugo though. I like their friendship and all. I think it's the most beautiful progress I have seen in BNHA. Their dynamic pair is good. May I know why you ship them? And please don't hate me.

Reasons to Ship Bakushima

Since you already like their friendship and think they make a good dynamic pair, you probably have a good idea of why people like their relationship. There are a countless number of reasons to ship them and their relationship has so much going for them, so I feel like whatever answer I give won’t be enough. I’ll try my best to answer this. Maybe it’s best if I list some of the main reasons why I ship them. 

1. Kirishima is important to Bakugou’s character development. 

Early on, he encourages Bakugou to have friends and allies by being a friend and ally to Bakugou himself.

Kirishima does such a good job making himself a friend and equal to Bakugou that he becomes the only classmate Bakugou can accept being rescued by without hurting Bakugou’s pride. This is a huge step for Bakugou’s character development because it shows Bakugou can learn how to accept help from someone without his ego being bruised. 

The character development Kirishima gives Bakugou helps Bakugou become a better hero by encouraging Bakugou to be a nicer individual and to work with other people. 

2. Bakugou CARES about Kirishima. 

Usually Bakugou doesn’t give a crap if someone is sad. However, Bakugou has been shown multiple times trying to cheer Kirishima up when Kirishima is sad, which is something he hasn’t done for other classmates. Bakugou cares about someone besides himself, and the classmate Bakugou cares about the most is Kirishima. 

Bakugou doesn’t care about people like a hero should. As Bakugou learns to care about Kirishima, he can become capable of caring about other people, further showing how Kirishima helps Bakugou become a better hero.

3. Despite Kirishima admiring Bakugou and wanting to be his friend, Kirishima doesn’t let Bakugou walk all over him. 

He’ll tease Bakugou like any friend would, even if Bakugou doesn’t like it. 

And he doesn’t let Bakugou get away with shit. He understands Bakugou needs to improve his behavior and will call Bakugou out on his bad behavior. 

Kirishima won’t let Bakugou get away with not calling him by his name either. Kirishima not only wants Bakugou to be his friend, he also wants Bakugou to treat him with respect. Kirishima doesn’t want to be Bakugou’s minion. He wants to be his equal. 

4. This point goes without saying, but similar to how Bakugou cares about Kirishima, Kirishima REALLY cares about Bakugou. 

Kirishima is one of the people who is most worried for Bakugou when Class 1-A hears the villains are after Bakugou.

And despite the dangers for him and his classmates, Kirishima is willing to break the rules to rescue Bakugou because he is one of the students hurt most by Bakugou’s capture. 

Kirishima checks to see if Bakugou passed the hero license exam and is worried about Bakugou when he sees Bakugou doesn’t pass.

5. Bakugou respects Kirishima. 

Bakugou sees Kirishima as a useful ally because their Quirks work well together and is willing to accept Kirishima into his cavalry battle team as a result. Then during that cavalry battle, he listens to Kirishima when Kirishima tells Bakugou to calm down, and Bakugou even refers to Kirishima by his name, something Bakugou rarely does and only does with people he respects. 

Kirishima puts up a good fight against Bakugou during the Sports Festival, showing Bakugou that he’s more than just his hardening Quirk, making Bakugou respect him even more. 

Not only does Bakugou respect Kirishima enough to be rescued by him without hurting his pride, but Bakugou remembers words Kirishima told him months later. Kirishima told Bakugou he’d be unshakable during the cavalry battle, and then Bakugou recalls those exact words months later. Bakugou doesn’t remember things unless they’re important. The things Kirishima says have a huge impact on Bakugou.

Furthermore, Bakugou thinks Kirishima is so strong that he states Kirishima can be unbreakable like All Might. Considering how highly Bakugou thinks of All Might, that’s a huge compliment and shows how much Bakugou respects Kirishima’s abilities. 

6. Bakugou is good for Kirishima’s character growth. 

Kirishima looks up to Bakugou for his unwavering determination and strength and tries to be a strong hero more like Bakugou. When Kirishima expresses how little he thinks of his Quirk and abilities, Bakugou gives Kirishima advice and helps Kirishima create his new super move, Red Riot Unbreakable. 

As demonstrated by Red Riot Unbreakable, Bakugou helps give Kirishima conviction and a more unbreakable spirit, making Kirishima more of an unyielding wall, which will improve Kirishima’s hero career. Kirishima wouldn’t be the mighty brute force he is now without Bakugou. In addition, the things Bakugou says improve Kirishima’s confidence. For instance, Red Riot Unbreakable raised Kirishima’s confidence and makes him feel stronger, which is important for Kirishima’s self-esteem. Keep in mind, Bakugou usually says things to hurt and lower other people’s confidence, so it’s very remarkable that the things he says helps Kirishima’s confidence instead. 

Although, it’s difficult for Bakugou’s threats and insults to faze Kirishima anyway. 

Considering Kirishima’s low self-esteem, Bakugou is an important person who’ll help raise Kirishima’s confidence. In addition, both Bakugou and Kirishima suffer from painful inferiority complexes, with Bakugou’s inferiority complex manifesting into a superiority complex. They can both relate to their issues and help each other. 

Overall, Bakugou and Kirishima’s relationship gets lots of development throughout the series. They mean a lot to each other and help their characters grow. They’re arguably best friends. They’re so close that Iida automatically turns to Kirishima when asking about Bakugou’s whereabouts. 

I don’t expect this answer to convert you into a Bakushima shipper anon. It’s cool if you don’t ship it. This is a very loaded ask because there’s so much I can say about this. I don’t think this answer does this ship or their relationship justice because I can go on and on about why Bakugou and Kirishima are great for each other and why their relationship is important. If I didn’t list some reasons why I like them, then my answer would get disorganized and incoherent. By the way, thanks for asking this specific question. I’ve never really stated why I like Bakugou and Kirishima’s relationship, and it’s nice to finally get my thoughts out there. Although, I could still say more on the topic.

THE RAP MONSTER SERIES: DRABBLES

Why I love Wynonna Earp

Okay but like, let’s be real here. 

Regardless of the fact that some visual effects are laughable and the show can’t really be taken seriously, Wynnona fucking Earp has taught me so much. 

Honestly. Just, wow

Like:

  • Waverly and Wynonna’s relationship is totally sister goals. They love, support and protect each other so much that it’s beautiful (and hilarious), and they definitely set a wonderful example of what sisters should be like. 
  • Friendships are fucking important and can form from the most inconspicuous places. (Dolls and Doc? Nicole and Wynonna? The whole Black Badge Division team in Purgatory? Even Jeremy!)
  • Doc didn’t leave! He fucking came back instead of running away and that’s- that speaks volumes about someone’s character. 
  • We should embrace who we are, regardless what other people think. (I’m pretty sure this can be applied to basically every single person on the show.) 
  • And that we should be who we want to be and not who others want us to be. (Kind of like the one above, but not exactly the same.) 
  • Also, let’s talk about how Waverly learned to never settle with what she thought she deserved. We can all unanimously agree that Nicole is a thousand times better than Champ. They’re not even in the same league. I mean, hello, she’s an Offi- no, my bad- Agent. Whose name is Haught
  • Moving on to Wynonna. After all the crap she’s been through, I think it’s safe to say that sometimes it’s okay to not be okay. There will always be someone there to help you get back on your feet, even if it takes a little while (of course, alcohol should not be that someone, but it’s Wynonna, so I’ll let it slide…).
  • People change, and there’s nothing you can do about it. (Cue Willa. *shudders*) 
  • Everything is better if people work together. This is self explanatory and can be seen in every. Single. Episode. 
  • Consent is sexy as hell. And also a very, very important and often overlooked part of every relationship. (Thank you, Emily Andras, you are, without a doubt, a Queen.)  
  • And, on that note, Nicole fucking Haught is exactly what every significant other should be like. Supporting, hard working, patient, loving… the list goes on and on and on… We all deserve someone like Nicole Haught and I think that’s lovely. 


I’m sure that there are many, many other lessons, but these are just the first that came to mind. I don’t know, WayHaught is beautiful and wonderful and lovely, but there’s also soooooo much more to be appreciated on this show. These are just my two cents, at least.  

Daryl & Tara -> “Sometimes you just need to breath, trust, let go, and see what happens.”

This hug means everything to me. Everyone was talking about the Daryl & Rick hug after episode 8, even though this one was probably the most important one of them all. Still, no one’s talking about it. Tara goes up to him, shows him how much she cares about him, how much she loves him and that she forgives him with a simple hug. I mean, three of nine people hugged him. One of them was Tara. This is the start of a beautiful friendship. I can’t wait to see them getting closer in season 8.

Hey Supergirl fans, tired of how the writers are floundering on supergirl? Confused as to why everyone just forgot about Jeremiah Danvers? And how they just got rid of M’gann?? And the lack of Lena Luthor? And how suddenly this pathetic cishet white boy is the centre of attention? Yeah, me to.

I present to you 

It’s got everything I love about Supergirl, without everything I hate.

Premise: all our favourite side heroes (and some villains) from the Arrowverse team up to save time. Literally, time itself. Don’t let the time travel element put you off. It’s actually a bunch of fun.

This show does not hold back. Just check out the gifs in the LoT or Legends of Tomorrow tags.

Bonus points

  • Resident bisexual ninja Sara Lance is one of the primary leads (and in the second season, captain)
  • The white boys are actually decent human beings
  • It explicitly addresses racism and homophobia throughout history (including slaverly. yeah, they do that)
  • it’s funny as fuck. I usually sit there grinning like an idiot
  • It doesn’t take itself too seriously, unless it’s talking about something serious like slavery
  • the relationships, both platonic and romantic, are for the most part excellently written. the friendships are especially important, which I find very refreshing
  • it’s clearly written by a bunch of nerds (we just had an ep that was pretty much a tribute to star wars it was beautiful)

Sure, like all shows it’s got it’s problems, but if you like it, the second season has upped the ante with some of the best villians from arrow and flash, and the best episodes so far. (I personally think the writers of Legends are the best of all the Berlanti shows).

check it out. It’ll cure the supergirl depression that we’re all in

anonymous asked:

Question: I call myself ace. However, I crave stuff like cuddling, etc. that isn't sexual. Dating terrifies me, and I want nothing to do with it. TBH I just want to cuddle with someone. Would you classify this as "ace" still? Thanks!

Totally!  Wanting to cuddle is completely separate from sexual attraction, many aces still want to cuddle.

Below is a helpful(but not complete) list of possible attractions.  One might feel or not feel any of combination of these.  Everyone experiences things differently, but these are meant to help you begin to understand your feelings.  What you described sounds like sensual attraction.

  • Sexual attraction: attraction that makes people desire sexual contact or shows sexual interest in another person(s).
  • Romantic attraction: attraction that makes people desire romantic contact or interaction with another person or persons.
  • Aesthetic attraction: occurs when someone appreciates the appearance or beauty of another person(s), disconnected from sexual or romantic attraction.
  • Sensual attraction: the desire to interact with others in a tactile, non-sexual way, such as through hugging or cuddling.
  • Emotional attraction: the desire to get to know someone, often as a result of their personality instead of their physicality. This type of attraction is present in most relationships from platonic friendships to romantic and sexual relationships.
  • Intellectual attraction: the desire to engage with another in an intellectual manner, such as engaging in conversation with them, “picking their brain,” and it has more to do with what or how a person thinks instead of the person themselves

anonymous asked:

If it's okay, could you write a meta on harry potter? Not the series but the character. And maybe discuss some of his dynamics with others if it's not too much?

Harry is such an under-appreciated character, which is somewhat ridiculous given that not only is he the protagonist but he’s a well-written and multi-faceted character, with a lot of nuances, a compelling backstory and great dynamics with many of the main characters. Yet parts of the HP fandom will literally hate on him for anything; today I ran across a post which blasted a twelve-year-old Harry for not financially supporting the Weasley, ignoring the fact that, you know, he’s twelve and the fact that the Weasleys would in no way ever accept Harry’s money.

Harry overcomes a lot throughout his life, and this is even before the whole Chosen One crap was placed on his very young shoulders. For the first eleven years of his life, Harry literally never experienced love, support, affection or even proper care. He was often neglected, at times outright abused by the Dursleys, and I think these years and these circumstances shaped Harry more than the fandom tends to recognise. A lot of his stubbornness and refusal to seek help from adults would have stemmed from this, as he spent eleven years believing that adults couldn’t or wouldn’t help him. His generosity and caring nature also probably stems from this, having experienced neither in early years of his life, he has a desire to share both.

Harry also has a deep aversion to fighting and negativity, and unlike Ron and Hermione, he derives no pleasure from arguing or fighting. He gets genuinely upset whenever Ron and Hermione take their verbal sparring too far, often snapping at them and telling them to let it go. Harry spent so many years in a volatile environment, so many years where a single wrong word or look could produce an explosion, that his natural instinct is to avoid conflict and arguments, which is somewhat ironic given the argumentative natures of both of his best friends.

Harry is a character who doesn’t change much over the series. This isn’t to say that he doesn’t grow or evolve as a character. He definitely undertakes his own journey, and goes from an isolated and insecure young boy into a strong and heroic young adult. But who he is at his core never really changes. He holds onto his goodness, his self-righteousness and his “saving people” attitude until the very end. If you look at his characterisation in the first novel compared to his characterisation in the last novel, it is remarkably similar. He is still a person who will walk into certain death to save others, still a person who believes in bravery and doing the right thing, and even if his faith in those around him has been tested and stretched – and in some cases broken – his general belief in the good in the world prevails.

Harry is such a genuinely good person, like, there are few characters out there who contain as much goodness and forgiveness as Harry does. He is always genuinely outraged and upset at what he perceives to be wrongdoings, such as Snape’s unfairness and favouritism or Umbridge’s reign of terror. He also refuses to kowtow to authority if he believes they are in the wrong, such as when both Fudge and Scrimgeour try to sway him to their sides. Harry’s genuine goodness and belief in what is right, in what is fair is one of his defining character traits, and it amazes me that a lot of the fandom does not seem to see or acknowledge this side of him.

I have always found Harry to be quite an isolated character, and I believe that this too stems from his upbringing and his life with the Dursleys. Growing up in an environment where he received no support, where he had no friends and no family members who paid attention to him turned Harry into a very self-sufficient and solitary person, and if you look closely at his inter-personal relationships, it becomes apparent that all of his close relationships are with people who are also isolated and/or lonely in their own way.

Ron and Harry bond almost instantly when the two meet on the Hogwarts Express, both delighted to make one another’s acquaintance. Despite his large family, Ron is also a solitary person, not being particularly close to any of his siblings and often feeling fierce competition with them. Harry not having had a single friend before in his life is keen to make one, but even at this young age can distinguish between a genuine offer of friendship (Ron) and a friendship which may come with strings attached or an inequality within the dynamic (Malfoy).

Despite Ron’s occasional jealousy (which is nowhere near as fierce or as prevalent as parts of the fandom would have you believe) Ron and Harry’s friendship is an equal partnership, mirroring that of James and Sirius. Both Ron and Harry have a penchant for trouble making, and Ron does occasionally come across as somewhat callous and cruel, but both have a deep desire to do good and believe in bravery and heroics, all of which bonds them and cements their friendship. I think they recognise the loneliness and desire for close bonds in one another, and both give and take over the course of the friendship, providing one of the strongest friendships on the written page.

Harry’s friendship with Hermione is somewhat different. While again, he has bonded with someone who is quite an isolated character and he is close to Hermione and obviously cares for her deeply, his dynamic with her is neither as free or as easy as his dynamic with Ron. He and Hermione are close to one another, but they are both closer to and connect better with Ron than they do with each other, and this is evident whenever the two spend long periods of time together without Ron’s presence, such as when Harry and Ron have their falling out during GoF or when Ron leaves them during Deathly Hallows. When Harry is with Ron one-on-one it is still easy and fun, but when it is just him and Hermione, things are different, and it really does show how integral Ron is to the Trio, and how his presence balances the dynamic within the group.

Harry’s relationships with people outside of the main Trio also reflect this tendency to bond with isolated and/or lonely characters, as evidenced by his close friendship with Luna and even his romantic relationship with Ginny. Both girls are initially presented as isolated characters who gain friends over the course of the books. Luna in particular is a very lonely soul, and I think Harry’s fondness for her stems from him relating to this loneliness.

Even Harry’s relationships with the adults in his life follow the same pattern, as the four closest adult friendships he has – Sirius, Lupin, Hagrid and Dumbledore – are all with figures who are quite isolated. Sirius, of course, being incarcerated for much of his life and having lost all his friends has become an isolated figure, and his relationship with Harry seems to combine that of cool uncle and nephew with the dynamic of best friends. As much as Sirius does genuinely love and care for Harry, there is a part of him that does see Harry as a James substitute, but the same can be said for the way in which Harry views Sirius, as a surrogate parental figure, as well as someone who can provide a link to his parents.

Lupin and Hagrid both also provide this link in their own ways, Lupin more so than Hagrid, having been a Marauder and someone who was close to both James and Sirius. Harry’s relationship with Lupin feels somewhat like a mentorship which gradually moves into genuine friendship. His relationship with Hagrid, of course, is just beautiful from the start and develops into one of the deepest and most heartfelt relationship of Harry’s. Hagrid, too, is another somewhat isolated soul, spurned for his freakish size and odd attachment to dangerous creatures.

Harry’s relationship with Dumbledore really deserves its’ own meta, I feel like entire volumes could be written about the nuances, intricacies and levels of that relationship, but once more, it shows Harry bonding with someone who has had their fair share of isolation and loneliness, and who can identify with the pain and struggle Harry faces over the course of the series.

All up, Harry is just a wonderful character, rich, multi-faceted and very endearing. I have always loved Harry for his big heart, his desire to do what’s right, his stubbornness and the determination he applies to every task he undertakes. He really is a woefully under-appreciated character and I often feel that the fandom ignores him and overlooks how amazing he actually is, and that is a real pity, because they’re missing out on a great character by doing so.

8 Reasons to Watch: Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo

Im so sad that this k-drama ended and so in love with it that i needed to make a 8 reasons to watch post. First things first, sorry for any english mistakes. Hope you enjoy this post! :) 

There are some spoilers in this post, especially in item #3, but nothing too revealing.

1. The Main character

Originally posted by kcuties

When you see a strong female character in a k-drama, she’s often faking her personality or just being rude. Kim Bok Joo is a strong character and she’s still a human being. She lifts wheight, dedicating herself and putting her strenght on it and then she goes home to have fun and drink with her best friends. The main character show us that you can be strong and empowered and still live normally. That’s why we like her so much: she’s a female symbol of strength and still a young women who wants to enjoy her life and have some fun.

2. The swag couple

Originally posted by drama--study

This is one of the cutest couples I’ve ever seen. In the end of the drama you’ll just be thinking “Omg, I wish I had a relationship like this!”. Bok Joo and Joon Hyung discover their first love in the peak of their lives, when they can do anything, like Bok Joo said in the last episode. That’s what makes this couple so special: their relationship is full of love, youth and affection.

3. Portrays Serious Issues 

Originally posted by younqshin

When I got to know the girls from Rythmic Gymnastics, I got really sad. They had to private themselves from eating in order to achieve perfection. Look at that: Song Si Ho even developed eating disorders. The scene which some girls break a scale in the middle of the night might seem fun to some, but to me it was really sad. We need to give more attention to Song Si Ho: to me, she’s one of the best characters in this drama.

4. It makes you laugh

Originally posted by iamyourdoom

Sun Ok, Nan Hee and Bok Joo = FRIENDSHIP GOALS! I died watching their moments together, not to mention the question “Do you like Messi?” who make me laugh loud. This drama is surrounded by funny scenes (like when they go to the amusement park) and the sound effects in the background, like the guy saying WHAT? just make them even funnier, don’t ask me why.

5. And even cry!

Originally posted by prinzangel

The whole thing with Joon Hyung and his mom are so sad. Family bonds make a great presence in this drama: you most certainly will get emotional seeing how much Joon Hyung’s uncles and Book Joo’s father try hard to provide everything to their children. 

6. Lovely soundtrack

Originally posted by rawryen

Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo doesn’t have a big soundtrack, but it’s lovely and pleasing to listen from the first song to the last. The theme to all songs is “First Love”, and they’re going to make you remember the main couple’s sweet moments together. My favorite song is From Now On! What’s yours?

7. Amazing cast

This drama’s cast is amazing! They are not only good actors: they had lots of fun recording Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo and became close to each other. Nam Joo Hyuk even said he want’s to play a main couple with Lee Sung Kyung again! Isn’t that cute?

8. It is unique.

Weightlifting Kim Bok Joo is not only about love: it shows us the power of true friendship, working hard to achieve your goals in life and a family who always tries to keep you happy. You’ll end this drama missing all the characters, and I’m not even kidding. This drama also teaches us that we need to enjoy our youth, the most beautiful phase of our lives. Kim Bok Joo is a young girl, and she’s just like us in various points. That’s the story portrayed in this k-drama: a young life, lived with lots of swag.

An open letter to Julie Andem

I want to say thank you from the bottom of my heart, thank you for creating Skam and all the characters that I so quickly fell in love with. Thank you for making me feel included, appreciated and loved. Thank you for proving that mentally ill people also deserve love and respect, and showing people that our feelings are as valid as everybody else’s feelings. Thank you for reminding us about how our bodies need food, and that we deserve the best. Thank you for showing us that we shouldn’t accept sexual abuse or assault, and that there’s always someone who will listen and give advice at our darkest times. Thank you for decorating Noora’s wall with the quote “everyone you meet is fighting a battle you know nothing about. be kind. always.” and showing people that true kindness is the most important thing of all. 

Thank you for proving that islam isn’t a bad religion, thank you for representing muslims as regular human beings, and making others treat muslim boys and girls with the respect they fucking deserve. Thank you for showing us the beautiful relationships between a muslim girl and a gay boy, and the acceptance, love and respect between the two of them. Thank you for showing us the beautiful friendship between Noora, Chris, Sana, Eva and Vilde. Thank you for showing that no matter how alone you feel, there’s always someone out there willing to help and be your friend.

Thank you for including the gay community and showing us that being gay in fact is okay, no matter if you like boys, girls or both. Thank you for letting us get to know Even and Isak, and for a whole season of the two of them trying to figure out their own sexualities, and how to deal with them. Thank you for showing that mental illness doesn’t need to change anything in a relationship, and that love conquers all. Thank you for introducing us to Eskild, our guru, who’s so confident about himself and his sexuality. No matter what gender you identify as, or what gender you love, you deserve love and respect. Don’t let anyone bring you down, alt er love.

Thank you for introducing us to Linn, who always made us smile, and who probably everyone related to in some extent. Thank you for showing us the love between Elias and Sana Bakkoush, and letting us witness one of the most important scenes of the whole fourth season, where Elias says he’s always got her back no matter what happens. Thank you for showing us the importance of a loving family, and for showing how including and kind they were for their friends and family. Thank you for the scene where Sana prays for everyone, and for showing us that muslims want the best for their family, their friends and everyone around. Thank you for introducing us to Jamilla, and for showing us that former friends can work things out, no matter how much they’ve hated each other in the past. Thank you for Yousef, and for showing us that you don’t need to be religious in order to be a kindhearted person, and vice versa. Thank you for giving Even the support that he deserves, and for fixing the relationship between him and his old friends. Thank you for making them so understanding, and showing that there’s always two sides of the story. Even though somebody doesn’t call or text you, it doesn’t mean they don’t think about you, and it doesn’t mean they don’t love you.

Thank you for absolutely everything, it’s been a pleasure. Skam will always have a place in my heart, no matter how cliché that sounds. Thank you Julie Andem, thank you for making these couple of years better for all of us. It really helped me through. Being bipolar I always doubted myself, I always thought there was something wrong with me in some way. I thought I was unlovable because I did stupid things, and because I had depressive and manic episodes. You, through the eyes of Even, made me realize I was wrong. Thank you for making me realize I am not alone. You made me realize that I’m just as good as everyone else. You made me realize that I deserve love and kindness, no matter how I’m feeling. I am forever grateful for everything you gave us in these couple of years. Words can’t really describe how much I truly appreciate everything you’ve done for me, and for us as Skam fans. And even though there’s been some sad parts, even if it’s been alot of drama, it always works out in the end. And you have given us the most important thing of all, hope and happiness.

Thank you, Julie Andem.

The cockles panel is a adorable because you can really tell tipsy Jensen just really wants one of mishas unicorn laughs. He constantly looks at him after every joke he makes hoping for it.

Jensen cares so much about Misha and I love it, they have such an amazing friendship and it clearly comes across in their interactions when they feel comfortable like this. He sends the heart eyes towards quite a few people to be honest, he is such a sweet soul and so expressive, but there is something different with Misha, it’s more soulful than with most and shows a deep love and caring that I imagine is similar to how he is with his wife and kids. Jared referred to Misha and Daneel as Jensen’s loved ones once and honestly regardless of the potential for romantic shipping, this is exactly what I see, a deep friendship full of love and it is a beautiful thing.

On top of that Jared and Misha sometimes have issues with their mental health and self doubt and in those moments it shows how Jensen is such a generous and supportive friend, just as here Misha was having a difficult day, tired and worn, so Jensen hammed it up to keep him going, meanwhile Misha kept Jensen grounded, it makes my heart so warm!

Here it is.  A tribute to my favorite characters on The Expanse and their beautiful friendship.  

I got into the show about a month ago.  [Thank you @almostdefinitelydying]  It’s grabbed me by the ankle and I feel like Solomon Epstein discovering the Epstein drive lol.  What I love most are the interpersonal relationships.  My favorite scene to this day is Amos and Naomi on the Donnager as it’s getting turned to swiss cheese.  They didn’t die but that scene sure as fuck killed me XD

Anyway, I wrote a tiny ficlet and for the last four weeks I’ve been turning it into this comic.  Hope you enjoy! :)

Warning for suggestions of Naomi and Amos’ pasts. Sure I post the warning now like I haven’t been posting progress shots this whole time lmao

What the hell is wrong with LoT writers??

In s1 they made Jax have one episode crush on Kendra, just to get her with Ray, just to have her abandon him for Carter.
Then they made Captain Canary canon (Hallelujah) just to kill Snart of in the very same episode.
In s2 they gave Mick and Amaya this beautiful friendship/partnership with possibility of envolving into something more (and Mick of all people really deserves love), just to put Amaya with Nate, who I love, but they have literally nothing in common except for both knowing Nate’s granddad.
And then there are Time Parents (I mean Time Canary). Rip and Sara have one of most complex and developed relationships in whole show. And writers keep messing with us, tiny fandom of this ship, always giving them those perfect interactions and then pretending like nothing happened.

WHAT THE HELL WRITERS? The show is perfect, but can’t you ship propertly.
