a ship i never thought i would sail

2

Hey guys!! ;W; I still can’t believe that this ship has sailed <3333
I planned to do a lot of Victuri/Victuuri art before they’re canon XD but I never thought that it would be canon that soon <33 Episode 7 was sooo damn wonderful! Love them <3

Actually I wanted to redraw a screenshot..but now it turned out a little bit differently ^^“ I hope you don’t mind c;
I haven’t drawn a kiss scene for ages!! It was so hard for me ;w; But it was a nice experience <3 I really want to draw more kiss scenes in the future<3

I hope you like it c; 

I gotta say I didn’t  know at first that Phichit and Guang-hong were a ship until I came across the fanart. And even before their characters were introduced or reading their character info on the YOI wiki page I never saw the appeal between Phichit and Guang-hong.

I’m actually rooting for Phichit and Seung-gil.

And I with the latest episode, I realized that I may have been waiting for someone else who would have a bit more chemistry with Guang-hong. And guess what, we actually did.

Just look at him admiring Leo. And that blush.

Yup. I’m shipping these too. Do they have an official ship name, yet?

Also… I can’t wait for Seung-gil to get some screen time. And… gosh do I hope upon all that his true and holy that he and Phichit have some interaction!

Ok so I believe you ship bellarke too. So level with me. Is there still canon hope lol? I am starting to feel like it may never happen. Clexa made it seem impossible. When Lexa died and Clarke and Bellamy were being super extra this season I thought our time had finally come. But then Niylah in the last episode . . . I mean I know Clarke technically didn't make it official with Nylah but still. That MOMENT with Bellamy was interrupted. Will this ship ever sail?!?! Thoughts? Ty, bless you.

Of course there is! :) For starters, they are the canon pairing in the books to the best of my knowledge, and while television adaptations can stray from the source material, it does make it likely that they would at least be considering the possibility of the pairing in the show. And I feel like they’ve really been foreshadowing it from very early in the first season. Bellamy has been the only real constant in Clarke’s life on Earth, and a lot of the show is driven by their characters both individually and together. It has all the makings of an endgame pairing, particularly the slow burn development, and in a slow burn pairing you often see both characters exploring relationships with other people while slowly fostering the relationship they have with each other, so that if the day comes where they do realize there’s something romantic there, they already have all the foundation of a healthy relationship built and it’s usually one of those realizations where it’s like, ah, so that’s what this feeling was. And we’ve seen how they develop friendships and platonic partnerships on this show - Bellamy and Clarke’s relationship doesn’t really follow that and seems to be in a category all their own. 

Clarke’s past relationships have all represented something that she needed at the time. Finn initially felt kind of like a kindred spirit, someone who shared Clarke’s beliefs as well as her fears and who stood up for others. I think she also became attached to him because part of him reminded her of her dad in the beginning, because he also thought people deserved to know the truth and Clarke said it was the exact same thing her father had said. I also think that’s why it hurt so much to find out about Raven, because for Clarke, at that time, it felt like Finn could be the person meant for her. 

Lexa was a fellow leader, someone who could understand the weight Clarke felt on her shoulders, someone who knew how to separate emotion from what needed to be done, a lesson Clarke hadn’t learned yet because by nature she was a very emotional and compassionate person. That’s not to say Lexa wasn’t either, but she knew how to compartmentalize better, and Clarke looked up to her. When everything went wrong at Mount Weather, Clarke was in a really dark place with herself. She felt like she had done unforgivable things to try and protect her people and she couldn’t bear to see the judgement in their faces, so she left. When she finds her way back to Lexa and eventually forgives her for abandoning them at Mount Weather, she finds someone who does not look at her like Mount Weather was a mistake. She finds someone who looks at her and sees a warrior, a leader, and the decisions she made are something to be coveted in a person like that. Lexa has also only known Clarke as the leader, and not for who she was when the 100 first landed on Earth, and I think that’s part of why Clarke was running away too. She knew she had come a long way from the person she was at the beginning, and it was easier to pretend that person had never existed than to come to terms with what she had done. Lexa provided that escape for her.

Niylah was a little different than both of these love interests, because IMO Clarke’s relationship with Niylah has always been about finding comfort in the no-strings-attached physical intimacy that Niylah offered. Clarke is a person who I think is very grounded by touch, and she can’t live without it. Niylah is a free spirited compassionate person who lives day by day, who expects no promises or vows, who is simply content to live in the moment. And for Clarke, a girl constantly worrying about the future, I think that sort of personality is very appealing and provides a different sort of escape. Clarke has spent the entire series with a world of expectations placed on her shoulder and Niylah is someone who expects nothing from her but what she’s willing to offer. I think the same interpretation can be applied to their most recent encounter as well. Niylah tells Clarke she’s not asking for anything from her but today, and Clarke asks her to stay so she can find comfort in the knowledge that Niylah will be one of the first to become a Nightblood. While there’s definitely room to argue romantic attachment, I feel like part of why Niylah stressed to Clarke that she’s not asking for promises is because she knows Clarke isn’t ready to make them, because she is still mourning Lexa, because she has so many other things to worry about in that moment. And Clarke is thankful for that. Personally, I think that’s the extent of their relationship for right now.

When it comes to Bellamy, his relationship with Clarke provides a little bit of everything she was looking for in these other relationships. He started out as her enemy but he became her closest ally and friend, much like Finn and even Wells (who was the original second love interest in the books) tried to be. He shares a lot of the same burdens of leadership and in fact made many of the difficult choices with Clarke, and he is one of the few characters who mostly hasn’t judged her for them. I say “mostly” because he did lash out at her last season when they were on the outs, but I don’t think he legitimately was judging her so much as he was angry and looking to hurt her the way he had been hurt. I think Bellamy is one of the few characters who looks at Clarke and sees that she is still the same girl that she has always been, whereas many of the other characters seem to think that leadership has changed her. Part of this is because Clarke only allows herself to be vulnerable around certain people, and so most of them only see the facade Clarke puts on in order to try and convey confidence in her decisions that she doesn’t always actually feel. And as for physical touch grounding her, Bellamy has provided that at times as well, even before they were really friends. A comforting hand on the shoulder, a fleeting touch across her back or against her hand, an embrace. 

So the question I guess then becomes, if Bellamy embodies all of these components that Clarke has been looking for in her past relationships, why is she not looking for them in him? And I think a lot of that comes down to the fact that Clarke hasn’t actively been looking for love but rather responding (enthusiastically) to the love that has been offered to her. She didn’t pursue Finn, or Lexa, they pursued her, and she was happy to let them because she shared a connection with them. But I don’t think we’ve ever really seen Clarke do the pursuing herself, and a lot of that is probably because she’s just always felt like there were more important things to worry about than her love life. So far, Bellamy hasn’t really been offering that love in the same obvious way that Finn and Lexa did. His relationship with Clarke is firmly in the “other” category and I’m not saying that neither of them have an idea what that “other” might mean for them, but I do think that the connection they have is too important to either of them to risk without good reason and maybe, right now, they’re not sure they have that. I definitely feel like Bellamy was on the verge of something in 2x06 and that’s promising for future episodes, but I know my slow burn ships, and I know it’s not going to be as simple as finishing what he wanted to say before Clarke cut him off. 

And maybe this is just me but I feel like Clarke is kind of… oblivious, to when other people have feelings for her? Wells was in love with her and she didn’t seem to have any idea from what I recall, and I feel like Bellamy’s affection would probably be closer to Wells than anyone else’s. Clarke I think picked up on Finn’s feelings fairly quickly but he was a flirty kind of guy, it was a little easier with him. Things also weren’t quite as bleak as they became in later seasons, so even though Clarke had responsibilities, she still had a little more freedom to explore her own needs and desires. She was a bit slower with picking up on Lexa’s feelings, too, but to be fair the situation there was a very complicated one and she probably didn’t think Lexa would ever have reason to feel that way about her in the short time they knew each other. She was also still mourning Finn, and feeling the crushing weight of her decisions on her shoulders. 

But the one good thing about this radiation storyline is that the point of it all is to remind everyone to live in the moment, to appreciate what they have, to say the things that need to be said because you might not get to say them tomorrow. And with a clock counting down to doomsday, we start to think about how we want to spend our final moments, and with that realization things really get put into perspective. I think Bellamy’s realized that, but Clarke is still so focused on finding a solution that she hasn’t begun to consider what she’ll do if she can’t. I think once that changes, we’ll get our clarification on her feelings, but unfortunately that does mean things are probably going to have to get even worse. 

I have no idea if this adequately answered your question but I hope it helped somewhat, and feel free to send another ask or hit me up on chat if you want to talk about it more. :)

Jaime’s Tarth sighting & inner monologue


JAIME

Sailor, come thou here.

I wouldst thou speak this southern isle’s name,

So green of hill, dazz’ling blue of water–

Is it Estermont? Or yet another?

SAILOR

‘Tis Tarth, Ser Jaime. Hailed the Sapphire Isle.

JAIME [solil.]

In faith, I knew it true, ‘tis no surprise;

These seas are mirror’d in Brienne’s blue eyes.

How I long to toss my cares asunder,

To roam this blessed isle full of wonder;

I’d wander rocky paths where she hath been,

And bathe in gentle springs kiss’d by her skin.

Would th’Evenstar, her father, welcome me?

Tut, what musings these–never shall they be;

My ship sails south, her horse rides ever north,

Such idle thoughts enfold my heart for warmth.

The Seven keep her safe. I’ll now to Bronn

This sickness to talk off ‘ere reach we Dorne.

[exit JAIME]

“if worf hadn’t come along it would have been you”

NO I REJECT THIS AND I CHOOSE NOT TO ACCEPT jadzia and julian were friends!!!  he was a cocky tactless youth, she was serene and aloof– the fact that they became friends was important to their development!  that ship has sailed!!  it never even docked at the harbor!

okay okay okay *deep breath* I choose to believe this is Ezri feeling an attraction to Julian and passing it off as Jadzia’s– perhaps genuinely because she’s hella confused at this point, but hey maybe she’s got enough to handle right now.

Hazel: I’m surprised. Never thought he was your type.

Nico: *smiles* He’s my light Hazel. Water may wash away all my fears but it can still come back. But the sun *looks at Will from afar*… it takes it all away.

Will: Were you talking about me?

Nico: Hell no.

Will: What was it about?

Hazel: *chuckles* Take care of him for me, would you?

Will: You don’t even need to ask.

Haizel: And, Will?

Will: Yes?

Hazel: On behalf of EVERYONE, thank you so much.

Nico: Are we done? Can I go back to being gloomy af now?
