and i had to rewatch the scene to get the quote right

The Future/(is now)

I can’t believe this is something I saw with my own two eyeballs, because apparently all that’s happened so far wasn’t coincidence, or carelessness - apparently Dabb watched Season 8 and made a deliberate bet with someone - he’d make it gayer, or else. And so here it is, (almost) out of the subtext (Sorry, Dean and You can’t just go dark like that. We didn’t know what happened to you. We were worried. That’s not okay and I needed to come back here with a win for you and We’re just better together and I’d like that and THE TAAAAAAAPE). Honest to God, I think I read twenty versions of that fight yesterday as people scrambled to write pre-codas out of nerves and excitement, and they were all magnificent and yet, somehow, less shippy and less obvious and less romantic than what actually happened on the show, wtf? And Dean sulking in his room, Cas knocking at his door, hesitating, coming in? 

I swear to God - when Dean called him back, when he started telling Cas all those things - for a second, I actually believed he would yank on Cas’ tie and kiss him, because that’s always, always what happens in that scenario. Or, you know, Dean gets overwhelmed by his own feelings, by how much he’s just showed his hand here, and walks away. That’s also textbook fanfiction, and yeah, so it’s fluff instead of angst, but, come on - this is Supernatural - did anyone doubt it’d be angsty? Let’s just hope in a happy ending, because that Kelly voiceover (I love you. But we won’t ever be together. There is no happy ending for either of us.) gave me the creeps.

And what about the mind control, someone might argue. Mind control, schmind control. That’s like, the number one Prove that you love me forever and ever trope, and even if we’ve seen it before (if simply because Destiel has been built with every single love trope in the book, and, in this case, they used it over and over and over again), we’ve never seen its final form. During the crypt scene, Cas deflected instead of admitting the obvious (let’s be generous: maybe he didn’t know himself), and in the Bunker, Dean just barely managed not to kill Cas, and had to walk away before the Mark overpowered him, so no, that was not a good time either. So this thing we’ve been promised for a while - this My love for you is stronger than time or tide or evil curse - is yet to come, and with the way things are going, I’m feeling pretty optimistic.

Also: however Dean will read this when he wakes up, Cas is choosing love, and he’s choosing free will. He went to Heaven hoping they’d have a way out of this mess so that Sam and Dean would be safe, he stole the Colt so they couldn’t face Dagon and be hurt (which is text, by the way, not subtext), he went against orders because he felt that was the right thing to do (a human feeling, because angels are created for a mission), he stayed away from Sam and Dean to protect them - all of that is unangelic behaviour, and man, Dean and Cas are going to get into so many fights, aren’t they, because Cas learned how to love from Dean, and that means he’s got that same kind of stubborn, maternal, overbearing way to love Dean has, which means lots of I didn’t tell you because I love you and I walked away because I love you and I booped you to sleep because I love you and I really hope Sam’s going to stay out of the way, because there will be a lot of storming through corridors and huffing and outrage and Can you believe that bastard and it will be absolutely glorious.

As for the rest of it - though, to be perfectly honest, I barely noticed a ‘rest of it’ because my eyeballs were glued to the unbelievable Gay Feelfest unfolding in front of me - I’m really happy with it. I’m happy we’re finally talking Big Things again - Could either of you kill an innocent, do our parents determine our destiny, is there such a thing as innate character, and so on - and I’m happy with the insight we were given both in Kelly’s and in Dagon’s minds, and why they do what they do. I loved every scene Cas and Kelly had together, that kind of, We’re not heroes, and we may be worthless, but we’re what’s left vibe, and Cas’ smile when the baby was kicking, and I like where they’re going, how they’ll try to get this pregnancy to term. Sure, this baby’s got a lot against him - he’s Lucifer’s kid (although, we still don’t know who and what Lucifer was before he was forced to carry the Mark), and one of his temper tantrums could possibly destroy the Earth, but, then again, so could a lot of other things - he’s not special (to quote a famous tumblr post). And if we’re going with free will and self-determination of our own destiny, then we should have the courage not to nitpick: everyone should be able to decide for themselves, and this baby is no exception. 

(I mean, think about it. He’s clearly able to give anyone extraordinary powers - he gave Cas enough ammo to take down a bloody Prince of Hell - so he could have chosen anyone as his protector. He could have picked Dagon, he could have stuck with Kelly, he could have chosen any lesser demon or angel or random doctor they’ve been in contact with over the last few weeks - and yet he chose Cas, and Cas - as we’ve known for a while - is the curiosity, the abomination, the miracle: the angel who can love. No, I want to believe we’re headed towards good things here - narratively or otherwise.)

Final point: again, I know it’s not ideal to carry around a nuclear warhead in your belly, but the beginning of this episode gave me heavy The Handmaiden’s flashbacks (superb show, by the way, go watch it), so the fact they’re giving Kelly some kind of choice - that’s uplifting. Because yeah, maybe she’s slightly brainwashed, but this isn’t like any kind of brainwash I’ve ever seen on the show, because both Kelly and Cas are also lucid, completely themselves. They resemble most closely what Dean was like when he lost his memories, and I think now I’m going to go and cry forever at the implications. But hey, at least Cas’ got his own room at the Bunker and Yes, dumbass - we

Clues that Ezra is A.D.

On this post, I’m going to explain to you how I got to the conclusion that Ezra is in fact A.D. and how I think the final reveal will get unraveled. Before reading this, you should go check my theory on Ezra being A.D. and the story behind it.

I began to think that Ezra is A.D. after watching this scene from episode 7x12:

If you look closely behind Alison on the blackboard, you will see that there are two books mentioned with one quote below each of them and as a headline there is “Compare/Contrast”. The books are “Twelfth Night” by William Shakespeare and “Winter’s Tale” by Mark Helprin.

The quote below “Twelfth Night” says “One face, one voice, one habit and two personalities”, while the other one below “Winter’s Tale” says “Though I am not naturally honest, I am sometimes so by chance”.

The story behind the “Twelfth Night” focuses on a woman who lost her twin brother and decided to disguise herself into a man and enters the service of Duke Orsino. In the end, she finds out that her twin brother is alive and the reveal happens during a wedding along with the reveal that she was pretending to be a man.

“Winter’s Tale” is about a man who has a guardian horse and one day he meets a woman and falls in love with her. But he learns that the woman is fatally ill and he loses her.

My first thought when I read the plot of the “Twelfth Night” was that CeCe has a twin brother. In my previous post about Ezra, I said that Ezra and CeCe became friends while he was searching the truth about what happened to Bethany. I will take a huge step here and claim that they are actually siblings.

I believe that Ezra met Bethany through CeCe. Not CeCe through Bethany. Minor change on my last post but I had to mention it.

My theory on Ezra got more heated when I came to the realization that the Liars keep bringing stuff to A.D. at school (read explanation for this in my previous post) and also when I saw this note ending up on Lucas hands along with the comic book that Aria stole:

And then I thought “I was right from the beginning”.

Let me explain. I believe that the man in the book “Winter’s Tale” represents Ezra being in love with Bethany who died. This might also give some light to the theories revolving around Bethany having a deformed face. Cause the girl in the book had a “disease”. The “disease” might also refer to Bethany being mentally ill.

Another reason I believe that this story is about some guy loving Bethany is the character of the horse. We all know Bethany loved horses. Plus, the quote below the book said “Though I am not naturally honest, I am sometimes so BY chance”. Notice the BY there? And if you go back to season 6B and rewatch the moment the girls confronted Ezra about the night CeCe died, he repeated the word “honest” a lot of times.

In order to connect “Twelfth Night” and Winter’s Tale, I had to take as a fact that Ezra is CeCe’s brother. I’m still not sure about that but if you check their ages, they are the same. And the biggest clue I got from the “Twelfth Night” was the fact that the reveal about the twins and the betrayal from the woman who was pretending to be a man, happened during a wedding. The only wedding we know is going to happen on 7x20 is Ezria’s wedding.

Which means that Ezra will be revealed as A.D. and CeCe’s brother and CeCe will confess of not being a transgender and the real Charles might be Ezra. 

I had also discovered that there is a picture of Ezra covered in blood from the 7x20, plus, Aria wears her wedding ring on another photo from the 7x20. So, the wedding did happen. My guess is, the reveal will come after the quote “Until DeAth Do Us PArt”. Thus the title of 7x20. After that someone is going to shoot Ezra.

So, that’s all the clues I have so far. I might be wrong in the end but we won’t know it until we finally see it.

Still Star-Crossed 1x07 finale speculations/predictions

One of the things I love about good writing is how writers put in parallels of scenes and dialogue to highlight circumstances, changes and goals for the characters. This also helps in figuring it what might happen next if the story has been laid out well. The writers have already done this alot so I have high hopes for them to follow through on what they’ve started. I’m going to lay out scenes that happened in the pilot and speculate on the potential correlating scene in the finale and make some predictions. 

  • 1x01: Romeo was to be executed for murder but does not die for this crime.
  • 1x07: Benvolio is to be executed for murder (which he did not commit) but does not die for this crime.
  • 1x01: Paris tries to kill someone (Romeo) he thinks has stolen something that is rightful his (Juliet). 
  • 1x07: Paris tries to kill someone (Escalus) to steal something that he thinks is rightful his (the throne of Verona). 
  • 1x01: Benvolio saved Rosaline’s life in the alley. She was upset with him for being a Montague and they argued about their respective guilt in the death of their cousins. Also, note the lines—Ben: “Aren’t you the least bit grateful…If I’d only thought to sacrifice my own life…maybe all of this is on you.” Rosaline: “Maybe.”
  • 1x07: Rosaline saved Benvolio’s life outside Verona. He’s upset with her for betraying him and because his life is still in danger. They argue in the dungeon about his swiftly approaching death.
  • 1x01: Rosaline tells Livia “I should have told you [my secret earlier] and for that I am sorry.”
  • 1x07: Livia is going to regret not telling Rosaline her secret earlier but will eventually tell the truth.
  • 1x01: Escalus tells Rosaline he arranged this marriage to Benvolio because he thought she wanted her rank and comfort back. Rosaline’s response: “You think that’s what I want.” Escalus: “What do you want?” Rosaline: *goes in for the kiss cause the answer is him* Escalus: *rejects her to save Verona*
  • 1x07: Escalus proposes to Rosaline because he will no longer deny himself her love. When Rosaline asks if he will spare Benvolio’s life on her word, Escalus declines. Rosaline rejects Escalus’s proposal because she will not marry a man who doesn’t listen, believe and trust her. She will then save the man who does, Benvolio.

To quote Shakespeare:

All the world’s a stage,
And all the men and women merely players.

  • 1x01: A big city wide event (Romeo & Juliet’s funeral) where a big reveal happens (statue with “harlot” written across it) and a fight breaks out.
  • 1x07: A big city wide event (Benvolio’s execution) where a big reveal happens (Rosaline reveals the Paris and Lady C’s treason) and a fight breaks out. I’m personally hoping that Rosaline will tell Escalus if he wants to kill Benvolio he has to kill her first. Of course, Escalus won’t kill her and then he’ll finally believe her as she tells everyone the truth. Also, I’m hoping for a single combat sword fight between Paris and Escalus for the throne.
  • 1x01: Livia tells Rosaline the thought of marriage does not displease her and hopes she will find her One True Love but asks Rosaline if she would marry to save them both. Rosaline tells Livia no man would be foolish enough to choose to marry her over Livia. Also, Livia talks about how marriage to a man who loves you would be good and how Rosaline had expressed that she wanted a good marriage to a good man who will take care of them both for Livia. 
  • 1x07: TWO MEN will choose Rosaline! Both Escalus and Benvolio will express they love Rosaline and desire to marry her. As stated earlier, she will reject Escalus. Considering how feminist this show has been, I think it might be Rosaline who will propose to Benvolio in a less than traditional way. She has been so adamant that what she wants is to get out of this arranged marriage and it’s currently off. (I noticed on my rewatch the Capulet sisters say “what i want” a ton during the season, it’s like their catchphrase.) Now that the thought of marriage does not displease her and she knows that Benvolio is a good, kind man who would happily take care of her and her sister, I really want Rosaline to utter the line “what I want is to marry you” to Benvolio so there is not a doubt for him where her heart truly lies. 
  • 1x01: A big damn kiss with Rosaline & Escalus, her former love.
  • 1x07: A big damn kiss with Rosaline & Benvolio, her One True Love.
  • 1x01: Romeo & Juliet get married in secret with only Rosaline & Benvolio as their witnesses.
  • 1x07: Rosaline & Benvolio get married in public with the whole damn town as their witnesses. I know this is a HUGE prediction and it might not happen. But let’s get real for a moment, it will be a terrible screw up by the writers if they don’t get married. Literally like every third word uttered on this show is “marriage” because they discuss it so often. There might as well be a big neon sign blinking “MARRIAGE!!!” over everyone’s heads. Going along with my bold, feminist Rosaline theme, I think she will be the one to say let’s get married now in the town square after they’ve thwarted Ben’s execution and Paris’s takeover. Ben will be startled, “Right now?” Rosaline: “We’ve waited long enough.” Ben: *smirks* “So you were counting the hours.” *kisses her* Everyone they love is already present (mainly each other and Livia) and I doubt they want to go back to separate homes after all they’ve been through. Also, they’ve both expressed that they really do want to save their city. This marriage was meant to be a way to begin to heal the breach. Why not fulfill that promise with public immediacy since they really have fallen in love? I really think it will be a huge misstep if we don’t get this. I’m not sure if my hopes are up or not. I’m a little wary it won’t happen but I’m going to be bold and say it does.
  • 1x01: Paris doesn’t die and lives to terrorize them throughout S1.
  • 1x07: Paris doesn’t die and lives to terrorize them throughout S2 (if we were getting one *sad face*). It makes sense that Paris would run back to Mantua and try to get reinforcements. While Verona strengthens it’s alliances within its own walls and with nearby cities like Venice and tries to lure cities like Padua to its side.

Okay, KH fandom, I’m here to talk about a thing.

A thing that’s bothered me for ten years, but that I mostly kept quiet about, but for some reason now feel the need to discuss:

People who say that Sora doesn’t care about Kairi in KHII, or that he cares about her less than Riku in that game, drive me insane.

I often wonder if we even played the same game.

The main argument is that Sora asks about Riku more, and I agree that that’s true.

But guys… it’s true because for the first half of the game, Sora knew that Kairi was safe on the islands and it was only Riku he needed to find. So of course he wasn’t looking for her in II exactly like how he was in the first game.

And even his looking for Riku is tied to Kairi. “Well, I’m gonna go look for Riku. Then he and I can go back to the islands together. Kairi’s there waiting for us.”

And there are so times that Sora thinks about Kairi even during the first half of the game, like when he’s blushing and thinking about hugging her when he sees Will and Elizabeth together.

Also, does no one remember his reaction to Kairi apparently being in Twilight Town?

“Oh! Sora! Do you know a girl named Kairi?”

“K… Kairi!? I sure do!”

This moment right here is the turning point. Once Sora learns that Kairi’s in danger, he doesn’t shut up about her or stop worrying/looking.

And sometimes he even puts her name before Riku’s when asking about her, or sometimes will talk about here without even mentioning Riku at all. 

Here are just a few examples of that:

Sora trying to comfort Hayner, Pence, and Olette’s guilt about the whole thing: “Hey, it’s not your fault. C’mon, cheer up! Like I can even say that… I gotta help Kairi!”

He even blames himself for her abduction:

Sora - “The King, Riku–and now I’ve lost Kairi again, too.”

Donald - “Don’t be sad!”

Goofy - “Donald’s right, you know! Why, you’re the key that connects everything!”

Sora - “So it’s all MY fault.”

He also does the Japanese dogezu position towards Saïx as he literally begs him to let her see her–and puts himself on a silver platter that way–which is such a big deal, that I can’t even-

But back to what I was saying above, about him talking about Kairi a lot after what Axel did to here, here are just some of those examples:

After Maleficent pushes the crew into the Realm of Darkness… Sora - “Kairi! Riku!” (And yes, he actually puts her name first there.) As Sora opens the gate in that place, knowing that he’ll be forced to leave it soon - “Not yet! I gotta look for Kairi!”

Upon entering The Castle That Never Was for the first time - “Kairi… We’re almost there.” And a bit after that: “Kairi! Where are you?”

Also, backtracking a little bit, but there are moments where Sora thinks about Kairi during this part of his journey that don’t even have to deal with her current situation–like when he imagines himself dancing with her in Halloween Town.

But back to The World That Never Was stuff:

Sora barges in on Saïx and demands, “Where’s Kairi?”

Kairi then appears on that one balcony and shouts out to him, and it’s the cutest thing ever. Sora’s completely distracted and forgets what he should be doing, and just smiles widely at her and excitably says her name: “Kairi!”… before being dog piled by Heartless, for not having kept his head in the game.

After that, Sora sees Kairi fighting alongside “Ansem” and is clearly concerned by it as he watches them. “What’s going on!?”

Sora fights Xigbar, who goes out purposefully confusing Sora, and Donald reminds Sora about Kai. Donald - “Sora! It’s Kairi!” Sora - “Kairi, we’re on our way!”

Next up is their reunion. Kairi tells him, “You and Riku never came home, so I came looking for you.”

And Sora is so completely undone by this–because he feels guilty that he promised he’d return to her with Riku, and hasn’t even after a year; guilty, that she had to come looking for him; guilty, that she got freakin’ kidnapped because of him–that he can’t even look at her. He just turns away and mutters a broken, “I’m sorry.”

But Kairi doesn’t care. And she never blamed him even once, so she just shoots across the room and embraces him–eager to see him–and Sora hesitantly hugs her back, because he honestly doesn’t think he deserves her easy forgiveness. And he thinks she deserves more and better than this crummy reunion, in an enemy’s lair: an enemy’s lair that she’d been held hostage at.

Oh, and Sora freakin’ thanks “Ansem”–who he hates, and makes a point of saying that thinking about all the things he did makes him “really mad”–for saving Kairi. “I’ve got to be grateful for that. Thanks.”

We then get the Sora, Riku, and Kairi reunion. And in a lot of ways, this is a moment between all three of them. Because it takes Kairi to show Sora that it’s even Riku. 

And after Sora’s collected himself from all the emotions he’s just been forced to feel, after having the weight of the world on his shoulders, it’s all three of them talking to each other:

Kairi - “Does that mean… you can’t change back?”

Riku - “This battle isn’t over. And until it is, I still need the power of darkness.”

Sora - “Then… let’s finish it. You’re still Riku, no matter what!” (Everyone, including Kairi, then nods at this.) “So how ‘bout it? Think we can handle one last rumble together? The King’s waiting!”

Donald - “Yeah! Let’s get going!”

Anyway, after that scene Sora seems to have finally gotten over his regret about the whole Kairi thing, and we get some really cute moments between them, such as:

(After the Luxord fight.) Kairi - “You okay?”

Sora - “Yeah! No worries. Let’s keep moving.”

Sora catching Kairi when Ansem’s Kingdom Hearts encoder is blowing up…

…Kairi aiding Sora as he’s trying to convince Riku “you got friends,,, like us!”

Kairi’s voice being what pulls Sora out of the illusion Xemnas puts him in of Memory’s Skyscraper, etc.

Sora promises Kairi that they’ll “be together every day” Sora - “Uhh… yeah!” (And the only reason he reacts that way is because he’s still freaking out about the whole Roxas thing, but he honestly means this and is joyful about the idea.)

Next, Kairi, Sora, and Riku are all ready to go home together… which makes the fact that they get separated here even sadder.

Kairi - “Hey, let’s go home!”

Sora - “Riku… C’mon.”

Riku - “Yeah.”

(The portal closes before Sora and Riku can get through it.) Kairi - “Sora! Riku!”

(The two of them then gasp at this, and if it wasn’t fish face at the time I imagine both Sora and Riku would be looking really sad.)

Anywho, Sora and Riku defeat Xemnas for the final time (LOL to that, says DDD) and are stranded at the Dark Margin. Since it doesn’t look like they have any way out of there, they begin thinking that maybe their best option would be to just “fade into darkness”, and that maybe it wouldn’t even be so bad. But it’s only knowing that Kairi’s safe that Sora even considers this.

Sora - “Yeah. The other side… The realm of light is safe now. Kairi, the King, and the others are there.”

Kairi’s letter to Sora washes up on the shore–and he loves reading it so much, that the sweetest and most meaningful smile appears on his face; and it leads him to being able to open the Door to Light, and getting Riku and himself the heck out of there.

Next, Sora and Riku are finally back at Destiny Islands. And the moment that he sees Kairi and hears her calling his name, Sora is running to her as fast as his feet can carry him. Tripping, and not even caring. (And tbh, I honestly think he probably would’ve kissed her here, if Donald and Goofy hadn’t ended up tackling him.) 

But even after he’s fallen, this is just a really adorable moment–as the two of them smile at each other, and Kairi gives Sora her hand and he finally gives her her lucky charm back (whilst she corrects him that he’s not “back”, he’s “home”).

In the credits, we then see Sora stumble upon Kairi having drawn herself giving him a paopu fruit on the cave drawing. And he just puts his hand over it, smiles like no other, and looks up to the sky.

This game ends with Kairi giving Sora the letter from the King, and him looking it over in a confused manner. And as Blank Points from BbS continues this instance (after Sora, Riku, and Kairi) have had time to think it all over,) we see Sora being heartbroken and guilty again that he’ll have to leave Kairi again (he once again can’t even look at her, after having promised her they’d spend every day together and all). 

But Kairi is a selfless human being, who sees Sora off with her best grin and lets him go–thus easing Sora’s burden about the whole thing.

But clearly Sora doesn’t care about Kairi in Kingdom Hearts II at all, guys. <_<

…Tbh, this isn’t a SoKai post that I’m making here. 

And it’s definitely not a “Sora cares about Kairi more, whatever that means” thing.

If anything, I think he values the both of them equally.

The only reason I made this lengthy post is because SO MANY PEOPLE WHO PLAY KHII somehow get an “LOL, do Sora and Riku even care about Kairi at all? It doesn’t feel like it to me” feeling from it.

And I, personally, will never understand that. And above is all of the reasons as to why that is.

But to each their own, I guess:)

On a side note, I rewatched ALL of these scenes just now, to make sure that I remembered them correctly and was wording the quotes right… and now I’m exhausted from it.

If you’ll excuse me, I’m going to go take a nap.

My Top 5 most favorite DCEU Superman moments

I wanted to do post like this for a long time, but laziness was taking the best of me for most of the time. But lately I’ve got so many emotions about Henry Cavill’s Superman that needs to be put somewhere in some form. So here it is, my five most favorite moments regarding Superman in DCEU. The moments that define this character to me in DCEU.

5. The dialogue between Jonathan and Clark in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. 

Very important moment in a sense of formation this Superman as a character in this universe. For the most part of the movie he encounters with nothing else but criticism for his actions, no matter how much of a good he did, majority still looked at him with a suspicion, even though all he ever wanted is for people to follow his example and become heroes of their own, for people to see him like his closest ones do. In this scene Jonathan told Clark a story from his childhood where his heroic deed caused an unfortunate result, which morally broke him. Keep in mind that right before this Superman witnessed bombing of the entire senate and he thought it was his fault for not being more cautious so he could prevent it. So he was most likely thinking something along the lines like what is the point of even trying if it takes one mistake in order for the entire world to turn on you? But back to Jonathan, in his story he and his father saved their farm from being sunk by a river, but because of them changing river’s direction, Lang’s farm suffered the consequences and all their horses died. Because of it Jonathan started seeing nightames and hearing cries of those horses while trying to sleep. This story was meant to mirror Clark’s situation, because in Man of Steel even though he was saving the world, a lot of people died in the process of his fight with Zod and he also couldn’t save those people back at the senate. When Clark asks if nightmares ever stopped for Jonathan, his father’s answer was yes, when he met Martha. She helped him to believe in good of this world again, she became his world. I think this way Joanthan was trying to explain to Clark that if there is any good in this world, even if it is one person, this reason is enough to keep fighting and doing what is right, because where is one, there will be many. Every action leads to certain consequences and your failures shouldn’t cause you to stop doing what you believe in, you just have to keep in mind that outcomes might not always be the ones you expect Good of the world doesn’t stop existing if you failed one or more times, it is always there. The world is worth saving for those who still believes in good and in better tomorrow. While those who oppose you will either come to terms and follow your example or will fail themselves. In the end I just love how they compared Clark and Lois’s relationship to Jonathan and Martha’s.

4. The dialogue between Martha and Clark in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. 

One more very important scene and is very dear to me as Superman’s fan. Martha explains to Clark that he doesn’t owe this world anything, he is not forced to do what he does, he has a choice who he wants to be and to become and this choice he has to make on his own and only like that. That way by the end of the movie we get that kind of Superman who does what he does because he wants to, because he sincerely and selflessly enjoys doing good and relieved people’s faces is all he would ever need in return like in that scene when he saves the girl from burning building. DCEU Superman becomes a hero not because he has to, but because he wants to and this is very important. This is the Superman that I love.

3. Saving the girl from the burning building in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. 

I love the entire sequence, starting from the moment when Clark notices the TV news about Day of the Dead. He was in the process of his journalistic investigation about Batman vigilante and about his means to achieve justice in Gotham He got suspicious of Bruce once he heard his communication with Alfred through hidden coms and started following him. But in the process he stopped once he overheard the message on TV on a foreign for him language and when he realized that no one is going to rescue her, he immediately forgets about right now and started undoing his tie and flew to save her. In that moment I realized that this Superman is always listening, he is always cautious and on guard in order if somebody is going to need his help and when somebody does need his help, he puts that situation above anything else. Which is exactly why senate bombing harmed him that much as it did and why it made him feel guilty. Unfortunately they didn’t shoot how Kal-El was undressing from Clark into Superman. We immediately go to the moment he carries the girl in his hands, which also is a very cool moment that showcases how fast Superman is, because girl was already in the burning building when TV news were streaming the accident and it was in Mexico, so he had to be very fast in order to be in time. What I love the most about this scene is that Superman carries the girl with a smile towards her parents, you can literally see how happy he is and how much he enjoys what he is doing. Even though his expression changes a bit later, it is only because he doesn’t want people to see him as a messiah, he wants them to see him as a guy who is trying to do the right thing and for them to follow this example so people will be willing to help each other no matter the odds. He wants to show that in order to be a hero you don’t need super powers, all you need is a good and kind heart and will to do what is right for those around you.

2. Lois saves Superman, Superman saves Lois in Man of Steel. 

Very strong and cool scene where Lois teams up with AI Jor-El in order to save Kal-El, which is followed by a very badass escape on Lois’s part, during which we are witnessing her military roots, since she was very good on using that alien gun, she was literally headshoting those kryptonians. But as soon as Lois gets to saving pod, it gets damaged by kryptonian lady and as a result she starts falling to Earth. When Superman gets his powers back thanks to Lois using his kryptonian key that had AI Jor-El inside of it and he reprogrammed kryptonian atmosphere of the ship to Earth’s, his biological father appears in front of him and explains how he and Lara wanted him to learn what it meant to be human first, so that one day when the time was right, he could be the bridge between two peoples. Kal-El smashes the wall of the ship to open space and after that dialogues occurred, Jor-El pointed Clark to look outside to see Lois which is followed by: “You can save her, Kal. You can save all of them”. In that exact moment Clark/Kal-El becomes Superman and goes to do his job of saving Lois and the world. What is especially great about this entire sequence is that through Lois we are witnessing that in order to be hero you don’t need super powers, you need to be brave and have a good heart that is willing to help those in need and Superman was the one in need that time around. All of that leads us one more time to the point that everyone can be a hero in his/hers own way.

1. Superman’s first Flight in Man of Steel. 

I need to be clear that I love this entire scene from the moment when Clark is learning about this kryptonian heritage through Jor-El. This entire dialogue that leads them to Superman’s costume and Jor-El explaining that the symbol of House of El mean hope and it embodies a fundamental belief that potential of every person to be a force for good and this is exactly what Superman is going to become for every living being in the universe. Every time Jor-El open’s his mouth he speaks Superman is a sense that he defines all that this character means, what he is and what he will be. The meaning behind symbol of House of El defines the word hero, that all it needs is to be hopeful and do good however you can, super powers are not necessary, it’s just an instrument, but we can all contribute as far as our capabilities allow. Which again leads me to the point of DCEU’s Superman and DCEU in general - everyone can be a hero and it is expressed through various supporting characters. And of course my most favorite part of this scene is Russell Crowe quoting Grant Morrison’s All-Star Superman: “You will give the people of Earth an ideal to strive towards. They will race behind you. They will stumble, they will fall. But in time, they will join you in the sun, Kal. In time, you will help them accomplish wonders” and right after that Superman takes his first Flight and I love so much how Henry Cavill expressed the reaction to such an event. This Clark was happy as if like a human being suddenly discovered that you can fly and this is freaking amazing! He is so happy and so amazed by himself that it just warms my heart every single time I rewatch this scene. As Jor-El said, Superman embodies the best from two worlds, two different civilizations, he expresses unity, that different cultures can exist together and be embodied in a person. But most importantly, he shows humanity’s potential, even while being an alien, he takes the best from us and through his example shows what we can become, that we can be our own heroes from the world around us.

I guess this wraps up my Top 5 definitive DCEU Superman moments.

But I have to be honest, I still love ALL scenes with DCEU Superman and I want to talk about every single one for eternity. The scene of Jor-El and Lara-El sending their son away; scene with Jonathan looking at little Clark with red cape; the moment with Clark and Lois on military base and him explaining that it’s “not and S’ and her making an amazing face expression when she asks “You let them handcuff you?” and him explaining that if it makes them feel safe, then better to do it this way and she is just so in love with this incredibly kind person; bathtub scene with Clark and Lois; that moment when Batman is punching Superman while kryptonite effect fades away with every hit, that was actually hilarious; all Superman fight scenes with kryptonians and Doomsday; the moment when Superman says his goodbyes to Lois; the entire Krypton sequence in Man of Steel, etc. I LOVE THEM ALL. 

I love DCEU Superman and I have all the reasons to do so, but I really wanted to share my insight on these particular moments that made me love Henry Cavill’s Man of Steel so much. This version of Superman literally changed my life I can’t freaking wait for Justice League, it has to be glorious. Thank you, Zack Snyder.

So I think it’s fair to say that Exodus has definitely been one of the better episodes of season 2. I wanted to get that out right away because overall, I really liked that episode and it felt very reminiscent of season 1.

Which leads us to the ending scene in Kara’s apartment with Kara and m*n el. There was a lot that I take issue with. Because every ending scene with those two, for the last several episodes, always erases what we’ve learned. The messages of those scenes completely go against what the audience learned that episode and they’re also the reasons I never play the last five minutes when I rewatch. Not that season 2 has many episodes I’d ever want to watch again.

2x11 Martian Chronicles: In the episode, Kara has valid points for not wanting to be with him and she lists them. They’re not compatible, she doesn’t want to date someone like him, etc. And everything she says is true. And at the end of the episode, we have a great Danvers sisters scene where Kara reveals her very real fears about Alex slipping away from her (something we see consistently throughout the episode) and that being the reason she wanted to go all out for Earth birthday (to remind Alex how much fun they have together). Kara’s fear of losing Alex is Kara’s plot the entire episode! And the fucking writers, two seconds after her confession, have Alex try to turn it around and say that the real reason Kara was so focused on her birthday was because she was trying to not focus for her feelings on mon ew? Does that actually make any sense? Because Kara’s sudden confusion about how she really feels does not. In canon, Kara knows what she feels. She knew she liked James and Adam. She knew she did not like Winn in a romantic sense. So having Kara say she’s confused, she doesn’t want to face her feelings for man pain and then being upset when he’s going on a date with someone else? It falls flat and I don’t buy it for a second.

2x12 Luthors: I love this episode. There is no denying at this point that I’m probably in love with Lena Luthor. For many reasons. And yet again, I’m never going to watch those last five minutes because it is just so wildly out of place. Just as every scene with Kara talking to/about m*nel in this episode. The entire episode is Kara defending Lena. Kara trusting Lena. Kara literally fighting for Lena. They are great scenes and it brought back a little bit of that self-assured Kara we love. So having all those scenes of Kara viciously protecting Lena the whole episode and the writers then choosing that same episode to end with Kara saying she does like m*nel and wants to be with him? It’s not only extreme emotional whiplash, it’s completely laughable and honestly this was the worst episode for the writers to have put that scene because after seeing the intensity Kara defended Lena with, Kara saying she wants to be with someone who isn’t the person she spent all episode fighting for is just ridiculous. Frankly, I’m still convinced the writers just had little snippets of karamew dialogue they wanted to use at some point, opened up any episode script, and just cut and paste scenes into random locations because that’s how forced and out of place it was.

2x13 and 2x14: I can group these nauseating episodes because it’s the same thing over and over again isn’t it? Kara asks Mr. Misogyny to do something, he completely disrespects her wishes and does what he wants instead, and the ending scene? Aw, all is forgiven and everything is okay and look at how cute they are?????? *vomits*. They don’t talk about the very real problems in their relationship, the fact that he has no respect for her and what she wants but who cares because his horrifying behavior is still rewarded by getting the girl every time! #relationshipgoals am I right? No.

2x09 and 2x10 could probably have their own discussion too but this is already too long and the more I think about him, the bigger my headache seems to get… I’m sure it’s a coincidence, though.

Which, finally, brings us to 2x15 Exodus.

Again, loved this episode. We’re finally getting back to an actual plot with Cadmus and even got to see more about the Alien Registration. We got a fantastic Danvers sisters scene, amazing Alex and J’onn scenes, some real cute Sanvers, reporter Kara was back, they remembered James existed, m*new was in the background where he fucking belongs (even though he should be off the show completely), Dean Cain and Teri Hatcher were in the same episode though sadly didn’t interact (as were Teri Hatcher and Brenda Strong), and Lena Luthor(!!!<3) was back and holy shit, am I still flailing over those supercorp scenes! So yeah this episode was awesome.

And then came the end scene in Kara’s apartment with Kara and m*nel. Are you sensing a pattern here?

First of all, I wanted it to be Alex at the door. It should have been Alex because those two almost lost each other again in a way that is incredibly similar to Kara almost dying in space after pushing Fort Rozz away from Earth and Alex going into space to bring her back. So yes, it should have been Alex. But I knew it wouldn’t be, not while m*nel is on the show.

The first line I have issue with is “Supergirl is what I can do. Kara Danvers is who I am.” And before you say anything, yes I know it’s an easter egg. I know it’s a famous quote from The New Adventures of Superman and when you have both Dean Cain and Teri Hatcher in an episode, how can you not have a quote from that show? And for Superman, it’s a great quote. It absolutely works for him because he has two sides that are so different.

It does not work for Supergirl. Because while Supergirl is what she can do, she’s not Kara Danvers. Not really. She is Kara Zor-El, a Kryptonian through and through. Kara Danvers is the persona she took on at 13 years old to make sure no one found out who/what she really was. Both Supergirl and Kara Danvers’ secret identity is Kara Zor-El. So her saying “Kara Danvers is who I am”? It’s false and out of character and the writers should have chosen a better quote but their laziness is not really a surprise anymore.

And now the line that got a lot of people heated: “Maybe being Supergirl and having you is enough” is just ludicrous. And good God, the writers truly outdid themselves here because not only does this sentence completely erase what they just established 10 seconds ago (I agree with Supergirl being what she can do but not who she is) but it goes against everything we’ve learned about Kara since the pilot. The whole first season, she’s trying to balance being Kara Danvers and Supergirl. She doesn’t just want to be Kara Danvers anymore and she doesn’t only want to be Supergirl. She wants both. And it’s difficult and we see her struggle throughout the season with those sides of her life but she keeps on going because to her, it’s so worth it. She gets to help people no matter which identity she’s under and that’s all she’s wanted. So no, her settling for being Supergirl just when she was really starting to make a difference as a reporter is not enough. It’ll never be enough.

And of course, the “having you” part. The only, ONLY person the writers could have ever justified Kara saying this line to (even though it goes against everything we know about Kara) is Alex. Because Alex is her rock, the only reason she ever started to feel like Earth could also be home. The reason she flew into space and nearly blew out her powers trying to stop that spaceship because she would not lose her sister. And before you say anything, even if she had said this line to Lena, I would have obviously been giddy for a few seconds before wincing because it doesn’t matter who Kara says it to when it’s not true. And to do it in this episode? An episode where it was proven once again that Kara and Alex are the heart of the show only for them to have the audacity to downplay Alex’s importance to Kara and have her say that she’ll be okay so long as she has man hell? How dumb do the writers think their audience is?

But the writers are making a habit of belittling all of Kara’s actions in an episode in order to make it all about man hell again. 2x11, 2x12, and 2x15 are some of their stronger episodes this season. But they’re also the ones where the writers are trying to make man hell seem way more important than he actually is in those last scenes. And the writers are so spectacularly failing at that since there is no way such a badly written character can ever be considered important in those great episodes because he’s just not. And they’re choosing to showcase it in episodes where it would be the most obvious. The only thing the writers are doing is weakening a good episode by turning around and making it about monew again.

I truly don’t understand what has happened this season. I don’t understand how the writers are sending one message throughout an episode only to have Kara act like a completely different person around man hell in every ending scene just so they can cancel out that message. I don’t understand why they’re still bothering to call the show Supergirl when they’ve destroyed her character.

TL;DR Do you think Amazon will give me a partial refund on my season pass if I just return the end scenes of every episode or should I just cancel my season pass because every scene worth watching is on youtube?

Probably sound like a madman, but hear me out

Each character’s song represents them, through and through. (I’m just doing the 6 from the GPF because know most about them (except maybe Otabek but like … we don’t know much about him #littlescreentime)


This got hella long.  TL;DR: the YOI creators knew where they were going with their characterizations and managed to convey this through each of the program’s music

anonymous asked:

i was on youtube rewatching evangelion scenes and i came across a kawoshin scene. i read comments and i wanted to ask you what you think of some of them. one comment talked about how one episode (ep 24) was just about right to have kaworu, cause it shows how shinji seeks for attentions/someone who will love him = he will let his guard down. so it shows how easily he does that if he's 'loved'. and showing kaworu 'betrayal' in the same episode, makes it understand how (-)

(-) kaworu just used shinji and nothing more. another thing i read, connected to this whole thing is, people think kaworu “loved” shinji just to use him and shinji “loved” kaworu just cause he needed someone, not cause its kaworu. he wanted someone to love him and it was enough, which means it could have been anyone else (according to these people). now, i personally don’t think this is how their relationship should be seen. (-) (-) i do not believe kaworu ‘loved’ shinji just to have informations and such. since he preferred to die instead of killing shinji + him wanting shinji happiness in the rebuild. now, i do think shinji loves kaworu cause it’s kaworu and cause he shows him how to be loved. since shinji himself said he found strange that he confessed to him about his problems with his father etc. (i mean it happens to have those connections) (-) so, i wrote this huge comment, to ask you, what do you think and how do you personally see it? i’m sorry if i wrote too much! feel free not to answer if you don’t feel like to!

I feel Kaworu’s importance in episode 24 + 3.33 was more than just that to Shinji.

More under the cut.

A whole new world.


So yes, this is a Yousana fic based on the Disney movie Aladdin. This fic was asked by @mrspaaadfoots whose gifsets comparing Yousana with Jasmine and Aladdin are the best thing ever!!

This fic is entirely based on the movie so there are some things that I wanted to tell you about it.

-There are lots of references to the movie, scenes and quotes taken right from the movie (like “do you trust me?” “ain’t never had a friend like me” “….sounds strange don’t you think?” and basically the whole last scene) If you don’t understand something, like for example the first parragraph, maybe you should rewatch/watch the movie, believe me, I didn’t remember half of the things hahah

-The fic is based on the movie so some characters may seem a little bit out of character, especially Sana’s father. I know that he would never act like he does in the beginning but in the movie, Jasmine’s father pressures her to marry a prince and only a prince. So the closest thing I could find for this fic was Sana’s father wanting her to be with a muslim guy. I really hope that no one feels annoyed or upset about this, again, I’m just following the movie.

-I’m sorry if the ending is rushed up and messy, but honestly, the ending of the movie is kind of like that.

-I’ve erased Jafar’s character from the fic because I didn’t want to make the fic too long and I didn’t think he was necessary. Also just in case it isn’t clear, Elias is the Genie hahah

Well I think that’s it, again I really hope no one gets upset by this, I’m just following the movie. I’ve rewatched it and taken notes to be as fair to the movie as possible. 

ALSO I put a “keep reading” since the fic is so long. I hope it works, especially on phones, in case it doesn’t you can also find it here

I really hope you like it!!


Welcome to Oslo, a city in the south of Norway. It’s actually its main city. Here a lot of families leave and … wait wait wait, don’t go, I have interesting stories to tell.

Downton Rewatch: Season 1 (part i)

i mean this is really just going to be all about Thomas and maybe a little OB so yeah. also apparently going to be broken into two parts because somehow I have that much to say about collectively maybe 35 minutes of Thomas screen time in just one season!!!! i love this!!! i love when my brain is kidnapped and taken hostage by fictional people!!!! what a ride

- ooooooohhhhhhhhhfffffff the kissing scene. the Kissing Scene! I rewatched that scene more times than i care to share but i promise you it was in the name of science. the way he drags his lips along Crowblah’s hand, i mean, i mean okay! okay! i’m paying attention. you have my attention. they wanted us to know that Thomas 1) likes kissing, 2) would like to be kissed more often, 3) is very good with his mouth and enjoys putting his mouth to use, and 4) swallows and I AM HEARING YOU LOUD AND CLEAR.

- augh oh god the scene with Pamuk when Thomas tries to kiss him - he is feeling so confident, which is hilarious because not two episodes ago he got pegged down a couple of notches by another wealthy aristocrat who basically told him that just because he swallows doesn’t mean he’s wife material (ya don’t even try to tell me “one swallow doesn’t make a summer” is not a frank and explicit reference to blow jobs cause i’m not listening) – but okay Thomas you do what you need to do carry on sure - but then when – shocker – Pamuk rejects him. the look of blank horror and shame on Thomas’ face. aughh. it is the hand that twists the knife into my soul.

- okay so Thomas’ “fancy man” comment about Mrs. Hughes was NOT mean he was obviously teasing and smiling and having a good jest and trying to be a part of the circle like BACK OFF BATES

- Thomas hiding in the stairwell after he’s stolen the wine. we are soul siblings. i often seek out a good stairwell when i need to do some classic fearful dramatic pining. good job bby

- !!!! acting surprised! wait, acting is not the right word here – somehow GENUINELY surprised that maybe he shouldn’t have spread rumours about mary to his london valet friend – and yes, please, don’t even ask we know they’ve done it at one point okay and when Thomas goes to london they get together for friendly hand jobs and some dramatic plotting, i’m sure - thomas why are you the way that you are. he is already regretful in this scene because he once again has acted without considering even the consequences that could occur in the next 10 minutes, never mind long term. i mean you can watch it on his face. why am i the way that i am. the boy needs a good wrangling. eh eh wink wink nudge nudge

- alkdsfjklsdjfughhhghhgghghghghudfakj. the wall scene. you know. you know what i mean. when bates slams him against the wall. WHY DO YOU GO LIMP, THOMAS.

- also it is just so INTERESTING, so interesting that the night after bates slams Thomas against the wall (and he goes limp, did I mention he goes limp?), Thomas has the Blank Face of Shame on the next morning and he bullies William so cruelly that even i gasped in shock and horror (normally i chuckle when he bullies cause he’s usually the equivalent of 14-year old Malfoy making Potter Stinks badges) – but ooff. that was a hard scene. truly.

- when they’re walking to the flower show (jesus christ the flower show is the most boring subplot line of my entire existence please get me out of here) and thank god OB gets me ‘cause she’s like “i don’t know why we’re even bothering” and Thomas, THOMAS, of all people with this adorable smile on tells HER not to be a grouch. oh Thomas, pot, kettle, black. and also, OB, my other soul sister, says, “i’ll grouch if i want.” this is a direct quote from my life.

- speaking of OB and Thomas – okay, so timeline wise we’ve got to assume that Thomas is in his early twenties here, maybe younger though that’s a bit difficult to suspend your belief for. but in any case he’s still young and in his formative years, and I think we can gather from a fair bit of evidence that he’s not had the most loving upbringing. OB has obviously taken him under her wing, and in return she expects Thomas to provide her with certain information about what’s going on in the house. this is a relationship that Thomas gets - it’s a transactional one. i do something for you, you do something for me – this MAKES SENSE to a person who has been taught that people are things you use/manipulate/etc – people are not for loving and being loved by and if they are (i.e. Crowblah) then don’t forget that they are also for using and for being used by (i.e. Crowblah). Thomas’ actions always make a lot more sense when viewed through this lens - up to and including his relationship with Baxter, in which he’s both enacting the same transactional relationships that he was raised under (both in his neglectful/abusive upbringing and with OB as surrogate parent) and also trying to return to and secure the “safety” of another OB-like relationship. People are, generally, not safe for Thomas (not in his childhood and certainly not now as an outed gay man in a mostly hostile house), but for a time he and OB had - not a safe relationship but an understood relationship, built on mutual need fulfillment. Because a relationship built on safety and love is not attainable for Thomas – he tries to recreate what he knows best…transactional relationships.

- (what! what?? what do you mean why would the fact that thomas’ character has been boiled down to “evil gay butler” when actually he is one of the most nuanced and complex and psychologically well-articulated characters in tv history???  why would that bother me??????? i am not easily ruffled folks okay it’s fine i don’t spend a lot of time thinking about it in the shower or at night laying in bed staring at my ceiling)

Sinnerman: A not so Mini meta post anymore...

Due to my time restrictions but my desire to write this I decided that a quick meta post was in order before the weekend and certainly before 3x02. Yet be warned that this might turn a bit longer that I expect to myself… 

We have several clues on who Sinnerman might be and the good thing is that we can think outside the box with Lucifer the show. This is not Supernatural and so we have a mythos to rely on which comes from 150(!) comic-book/graphic novels! 

So let’s begin with the clues from the interviews: 

What makes the Sinnerman a different kind of antagonist than ones we’ve seen before?

Modrovich: He’s a badass. But what you also find is that he does have a hidden history with some characters in our show that come out and Lucifer has to face off against.

Henderson: We look at him like a bizarre reflection of Lucifer. We learn in an upcoming episode that he also gives out favors, but his are a little bit more nefarious. When this guy gives out favors, you’re really dreading the payment that you’ll have to give. So it’s sort of the Devil facing a dark reflection of himself.

What can you say about the Sinnerman’s intentions in kidnapping Lucifer?

Henderson: The Sinnerman’s the kind of person who knows that putting angel wings on the Devil will only drive him deeper in the other direction. So Lucifer, whether he likes it or not, is being manipulated.

Modrovich: And that Sinnerman has a motivation in taking Lucifer into the desert that’s other than the wings. He has this specific motivation that we will reveal to you throughout the entire season. He has a personal reason.

“Our friend Lieutenant Pierce suggests to Lucifer that he knows about the Sinnerman and they start to collaborate together in this tangled web that we weave in Season 3,” Ellis reveals to TV Guide.

HENDERSON: Yeah, and at the end of the first episode, we get this first clue as to who this person might be, and realizing it might be a darker force than he’s encountered previously.

To Summarise the above Sinnerman: 

1) Has hidden history with some characters in our show - Meaning more than one. Pierce for sure but also Lucifer apparently. 

2) We look at him like a bizarre (dark) reflection of Lucifer - Is that even possible to be darker than Lucifer himself I will say yes because I have a few theories on that but you will have to scroll further down for them. 

3) He gives out nefarious favours with high stake payments - This alone gives us a hint on what or who we are looking for. 

4) Sinnerman knew how to give Lucifer his wings and that it would cause Lucifer to act in a certain way - Meaning not only he has the knowledge of how to handle and manipulate divinity but also knows Lucifer… Really knows Lucifer…

5) Sinnerman gave Lucifer his wings for a certain reason which Henderson might have revealed above. He has a personal reason to do that… - This info again limits the suspects quite a lot but never ever forget that this is not a show based on the angels we know but its foundations are in a mythos woven by Sandman and Lucifer the comics… 

6) Finally, Marcus Pierce will have to admit that he knows about Sinnerman which will lead to a weird partnership with different agendas between Lucifer and Marcus. 

7) It is given by Henderson as a darker force Lucifer has ever faced before…

What we know from the show and most importantly 3x01: 

(At this point of the post I realised it was never meant to be a small one *sigh*)

He was just a routine gig.I was gonna swap him for you, 
but when I went to pull you out of the van, you you had friggin' wings, man!

What we know from the kidnapper is that he just had to get him out of the van not that he actually kidnapped him! So that means that we may have a three-act play. 

Lucifer when he is contemplating how he was kidnapped he says “…-how were they able to render me unconscious? Either they used some kind of celestial weapon, or the detective was nearby.”

He never thinks that there might have been a celestial being but we saw the weapon they used so we should at this point leave out Chloe’s presence near the hospital out of the picture and focus on that the kidnapper might have indeed used something of celestial origin… As we know from the piece celestial toys were left on earth along with a Summerian (Assyrian really…) manual… 

The second is how did he get his wings? Well, here we have again Lucifer’s reasoning to play with although I don’t agree with that much it gives me again hint: “Did my Father give you some kind of totem? A talisman? - What?”

At this point, the writers through Lucifer give us another good hint and it is closely connected to the next quote but seriously think about it… In Lucifer’s reasoning, an object can hold mystical powers enough to give him back his wings. In not so many words, magic is getting into the Lucifer (Tv Show) mythology finally… Divine power is one thing but infused and transportable as magic can be a complicated notion to conceive and handle yet… 

And I don't know your dad.
Unless, is your, is your dad the Sinnerman?

I was rewatching that scene but I wonder if the guy had made the connection with Lucifer’s insistence that some kind of dark magic for the lack of better word was in the mix. Funny… because why would a man who knew Sinnerman assume so easily that a feathered Lucifer could be the son of Sinnerman if Sinnerman did not hold a certain unearthly charisma himself? Of course that’s just speculation. 

Finally, in 3x01 even Lucifer acknowledges that: 

At first, I thought it was a an emissary on Earth working on Dad's behalf, 
but then, the more I think about it, the more I think maybe this isn't our 
Father who art in Heaven at all. But something much, much darker.

The above is actually a pretty good connection link to the comics… But anyway  Lucifer says this is something much, much darker and Amenadiel’s expression was giving away something the first time I watched the episode but I cannot be sure. Still, Amenadiel’s not so obvious reaction had me thinking that as the firstborn in the show he preceded Lucifer and knew quite a few things from an era before the light aka Lucifer was born… Although we do know that Mum had the same power aka to illuminate the universe… 

A clue from Twitter yesterday from Ildy had me thinking again of the usual suspects but you have to be aware of something. I can only speculate on comic characters or characters that may be based on the comics. Certain elements from the show appear on and off in the tv series like the “space vagina” That was actually taken from the first issues of Lucifer and is shown near the end as well. 

So Ildy says that something might have indeed escaped Hell… Hmmm… What we can also speculate is that as Marcus is hunting down Sinnerman, this season’s bad guy only recently found his way to L.A. but the second season would have been enough for him to grow out of favours and establish a mob persona strong enough to get to L.A. and target Lucifer when Mum was gone…

We might even suspect that Mum was but a diversion for Lucifer, Sinnerman created for him to make sure he was safe before he started plotting…. Of course, we cannot speculate everything. I’m sure that the writers have come up with some crazy and absurd details I cannot speculate about but that’s the thing, I can get to the comics and try to see who the usual suspects might be… 

Right now I have two comic book, inspired perhaps than transferred from the comic book universe to the show, characters that might be Sinnerman. And then a third speculation… 

The first but not the best candidate for Sinnerman’s real identity is Dumas. I’ll just copy paste his info here: 

Duma is a fallen angel from the DC Vertigo series The Sandman. Before The Sandman

Duma’s name means “silence”, and he is based on the angel Duma from Jewish mythology. In those tales, he is the angel of silence and death’s stillness. According to these same stories, he is the guardian of Egypt and the prince of vindication. Based on this, one could speculate that he was the angel who killed the firstborn Egyptians in Moses’ time. Some sources also name him a “Prince of Hell”.

The Zohar, a book of Jewish mysticism, describes his position in Hell as such that he had “tens of thousands of angels of destruction” under him, and that he was “chief of demons in Gehinnon with 12,000 myriads of attendants, all charged with the punishment of the souls of sinners.”

Dumah is also the name given to the guardian of the 14th gate, through which the goddess Ishtar passed on her journey to the underworld in Babylonian mythology. Dumah may or may not be related to Duma.

In The Sandman

In Season of Mists, we find that Lucifer has closed down Hell in frustration, and given the key to Dream. Eventually, after much squabbling between various gods, Duma and Remiel are assigned to assume control of Hell, and Duma accepts this.

After The Sandman

Following the end of The Sandman series, Remiel and Duma lose ownership of Hell in the Lucifer spin-off series. Duma eventually allies with Lucifer and Elaine Belloc to save creation, and persuades Hell’s new ruler Christopher Rudd to bring his army to Heaven’s aid at the Battle of Armageddon.

The second and the one I’m rooting more than Duma is The Silk Man…

Appearing for the first time in Lucifer: Nirvana, The Silk Man is an immortal sorcerer, described by Lucifer as

“..a fossil remnant from an earlier, cruder creation. His body is a weaving that has to be renewed constantly. His spirit too, come to that. A messy form of immortality, but it seems to do the job.” In earlier days he was the leader of the Arao Jinn. He appears as a mercenary, hired by the angel Perdissa to kill Lucifer. He seems to need to consume living things to stay alive, weaving them into himself. He is severely damaged by Perdissa and eventually killed by Lucifer.

The Silk Man seems to be closely connected to my third speculation and as such it might be a merge of the two… In the comics, God admits that he was created by an external force and we do know that darker things lying around the cosmos and outside The Creation… Darker, twisted and defeated by Dad… Still, where would all these defeated “things” go? In Hell I suppose… 

Following a mythology of Zeus and how he enprisoned the Titans under the Earth, we can say that this is a popular mythos to follow with one crucial flow. What precedes you have the knowledge of how to overpower you in time… Amenadiel might have been around at that point and might had to help Him to get rid some of them Sinnerman included…..  Now The Silk Man was killed by Perdissa… But I suspect that Lucifer’s light bringing power which freed Mum might come back for that task… If you need more info about that just read Lucifer: Nirvana. Lucifer Issue 75 also has a good interaction of our hero with The Sillk Man as well though….

Anyway to finish this post… I do not believe that Sinnerman is a mere human but at the same time I cannot believe he is a celestial being at least not in the sense we have known them to be in the tv series so far. So perhaps an external force whch we know they exist from the comics? Perhaps… Let’s not forget that the Sinnerman as a casting role is new so I doubt we will see for example Malcolm back or anything of that nature in our screens soon but to the ones who want to learn more about the external forces I’ll just leave you with Carey’s two answers on that matter on Twitter…

The Dream of a Thousand Cats is a darkish one… The allegory in that story where cats once ruled over people only for the past to change goes beyond your usual comic book standards (even for Sandman in my opinion) and the fourth wall sometimes shutters but it is what it is…. 

As the episodes come rolling I’ll probably change my conviction over who Sinnerman is but until then this post will have to do… I apologise for its length :P 

EVE BORES YOU SERIES: A stable surface hides a fractured structure - a look at Jackie&Hyde in season 7 requested by sulietsexual

To begin with, while season 8 was an atrocious bizarre abomination, season 7 laid the perfect groundwork as it derailed the overall quality of the show massively. Based on my most recent rewatch, there was one episode in that season I truly enjoyed (the one where the boys call the White House, purely because their dynamic reminded me of early seasons). There were a few that had some funny scenes but at most of them I was like ???? or ‘meh’, because this season derailed characters, relationships and just seemed to lose the understanding of the storyline. In this meta, however, we’re focusing on Jackie/Hyde and how the writers fucked them up completely.

So while season 8 sure was the final nail gun in Jackie/Hyde’s coffin, it didn’t come out of nowhere, considering season 7 was full of footage and characterization that showed the writers themselves didn’t understand the relationship they created. Let’s dive into that specifically, shall we?

During the first half of the season, on the surface everything seems fine between Jackie/Hyde. They’re presented as ever-domestic, sweet and generally adorable. But if one’s willing to look deeper, they will realize even those first 10 episodes are full of ridiculously OOC moments. Now bending the characterization to serve a plot/produce a laugh has been glaring since season 6 especially, but this pairing for the most part were written in character (except for the whole nurse thing which is a question for another time), but unfortunately, even they didn’t survive the wrath of clueless writers.

Uriel & Lucifer Meta post 2x05 - Weaponizer

So I was rewatching 2x05 - Weaponizer and I couldn’t help but start thinking a few things that just stuck with me… 

First, let me remind you that Lucifer advised Uriel to lose the coat and he actually did it after his confrontation with Amenadiel… But let’s move on…

Please listen to this song while I go a bit crazy. It’s part of the episode’s OST.  

It’s the We Don’t Eat by James Vincent McMorrow

So in this episode, a strange humanisation of Lucifer begins… He refuses to believe there is no other solution as there is always another way…

First, let me tell you that I believe that Uriel on some level cared about his big brother’s opinion so he lost the coat but as the ending of the episode was coming to a close before the fight and then during it, I started to have this crazy meta forming in my head. My stomach bubbled and so I had to share it. Why? Because I believe that it might be of great consequence for the third season. 

Now there will be a duality in this post. Lucifer’s wavering emotions between hate and love for Dad and what I call Uriel’s meta post. 

Let’s visit the first scene at the church… I firmly believe that if you want to know the real Lucifer you should watch 2x05 and particularly the scene before the church fight up to the very end. Anyway, in the church, we are greeted by an obviously abandoned place where there are dozens of lightened candles. That’s not just for the decor of that scene…

This the first heartbreaking scene of the episode although I doubt many realise why. 

A) Lucifer took the time to light all these candles. 

According to my fate lighting, the candles are supposed to show how we should ‘melt’ for the sake of the rest of the people around us while quietly lightening the path for them without showing off our generous actions no matter whether they are small or big. 

In a sense, I believe this is a preparation of what Lucifer will be willing to sacrifice for Chloe and Mum. On the other hand, lightening a candle is an act of prayer itself which brings us to my second point. 

B) Lucifer not only lightened the candles but he chooses a church. 

In that moment he begs Dad to help. He tries to get back home and I believe that Lucifer was praying for more than just Uriel that night. Perhaps in a sense, Lucifer needed Dad to watch what was happening in his ‘house’ and within his family. It was the cry of a son screaming at his father to finally look and actually see. Brothers had just turned against each other and an innocent soul was at stake. Perhaps that was what broke Lucifer more. Dad’s absence while he let Uriel meet his end. 

C) Until the very end, Lucifer believed there was another solution and indeed there was an unexpected one. Death. 

Now moving on to Uriel. As I have said before I’ve never got why Uriel comes to L.A. to get Mum back to Hell or even extinguish her for good, fights Lucifer, threatens him with Chloe only at the end to tell him that the piece was on Earth thus starting a whole chain reaction which laid us to 2x18… With that in mind, I watched 2x05 under a completely different light.  

Uriel’s quotes near the end were: 

1) ‘Cause for once in my life, I’d like to be surprised, but no. 

Does that mean he was gifted with omniscience? Perhaps but we saw that Lucifer could follow a pattern but still Uriel could not figure out how the blow would come. In my perception, it meant that Uriel could see the colour green but he didn’t know if it was a leaf or a whole tree.

2) In my version, you refuse to give Mom up and your human friend dies.

But didn’t that happen? Didn’t Chloe reach death in 2x13? So perhaps Uriel was right after all but that’s not all…

3) L: Maybe you’re not as good at this as you thought.
    U: Maybe I’m building up to a big finale.

Now Uriel’s reply here made sense for me. In Hell, we saw that Mum remembered Uriel as the son who was always attached to her. He said ‘Don’t leave me not again’ indeed Mum remembers him as the boy he once was which makes me believe that perhaps Uriel loved her as well so he knew of the big finale in 2x18, something that is supported by the next lines.

4) L: No Heaven, no Hell, just just gone.
    U: Finally, a moment of clarity between us.

Call me an overthinker but what if Uriel was giving Lucifer a hint of what he could do and that is why he told him before dying about the piece? Or perhaps the piece part belongs to the better understanding of the patters. Still, Mum did end up in a place which was not Heaven nor Hell so Uriel was right and by bringing the blade and notifying Lucifer of the piece, Uriel did help sent Mum to her own dimension.  

5) A sequence will begin, and two days from now your cute little human will finally die.

Here we recognise that Uriel could control a sequence further ahead in time so what if that sequence lasted months or even years? Aka Chloe’s poisoning because if she wasn’t with Lucifer that night in 2x10, he would have had sex with Gina and Chloe might never have had the case of the smuggling poison which led them to the professor at some point… She did almost die and a new pattern began which as Uriel explains:

6) Patterns are tricky like that. Takes time to get a real sense of them.

I’m not sure whether Uriel was talking about the fight (doubtful in my speculation belief), or how at the last moments he realised that he had to die in order for a new pattern to start its sequence in which, he was the key that had to be pressed in order for everything to literally unravel as we saw in 2x18.

Or three what if Uriel was telling to Lucifer that you Lucifer will need time to see the pattern, make a real sense of it and not feel threatened by it…? 

Chloe’s love & miracle status, Mum, his wings, in my opinion, might have been part of a pattern which started once Uriel died… If Lucifer never had the sword he never would have perhaps gone to Vegas after Chloe was poisoned, Linda would have never learned the truth and would not have helped for Chloe to be saved… So many things would have gone differently if Uriel had not died and so the pattern is still in motion but Lucifer needs to actually make sense of it…

Finally, at the end of the episode, Chloe reads the book Coraline by Neil Gaiman and although that part is important from the book I would like for this post to rethink the lines… 

As the first stars (Morningstar) came out, “Coraline finally allowed herself to drift into sleep (Chloe?). "While the gentle upstairs (Heaven/Dad?) music of the mouse circus "spilled out onto the warm evening air, telling the world that the summer was almost done (see the last 2 songs in 2x18 where a storm is coming and that the world is unravelling also the spoiler of Sinnerman as the darkest force Lucifer has faced so far).

I might be overthinking things but they make sense for me… If you have made it to the very end thank you, as you know that I tend to have this crazy scattered thoughts which are bubbling violently to get out once they are formed sometimes. 

Last note… Just notice the lyrics of the song I gave you earlier… The one it is heard as Lucifer gets to the church to meet Uriel…

Two thousand years, I’ve been in that water
Two thousand years, sunk like a stone
Desperately reaching for nets
That the fishermen have thrown
Trying to find, a little bit of hope

okay but I like the beginning of the song a lot more…

If this is redemption, why do I bother at all
There’s nothing to mention, and nothing has changed
Still I’d rather be working at something, than praying for the rain
So I wander on, till someone else is saved

Do search for the rest of the lyrics… They are beautiful.

I'm rewatching season 5 & some of the things Ezra says is so funny. Like when aria goes to see him after New York & says something about being back at the scene of the crime & Ezra goes "I see no crime here" like hahahaha I'm sure you don't you creepy predator, then later when they want Mike to testify & Ezra keeps saying "he's just a kid! He's 16!" like ok buddy so was Aria & you were ok with dating & having sex with her 🙄

klasnfdabjknwelgalkgj RIGHT

that quote IMK had about how she told the other writers to write the girls like adults instead of teens, like, that just fucking makes me infuriated man because you’re so right, why does Mike get treated like a kid? Why does Mike get to get treated like a 16 year old???????? Are we REALLY doing the whole “girls mature faster than boys” bullshit? Because let’s be real, girls only mature faster than boys because we are forced to. FUCK THAT SHIT 

Aria and Bethany are twins?

Aria is an artist. Bethany is an artist, too. There was also a portrait of a blond in Aria’s room. Big Rhonda mentioned that a lady with a big beige purse took Bethany on outings, Ella was seen with the ‘big beige purse’ Marlene tweeted that there was a new member in the Montgomery family (A.M & B.Y) A lot of you claim that this tweet was fake but I swear to you, it’s not. I retweeted it when it was still up on Twitter. When Aria volunteered at the asylum, Eddie Lamb recognized her. He felt like they ‘MET’ before. However, Aria disagrees. The reason he felt this towards her was because she’s an identical twin to Bethany Young, who once was a patient at Radley. When they were talking, there was a pig portrait behind them. Pigtunia is very symbolic in PLL, Alison mentions that the game has a new ‘puppet master’ When they tried to distract the cops, they used a pig mask on fake A. The Montgomery family left after Alison’s disappearance, we also come to know that Bethany Young was murdered that night. It’s possible that Ella persuaded Byron to take a trip to Iceland to clear their minds and get a fresh start. Byron thought it was a good idea because he saw Alison the night she was 'murdered’ but what about Ella? Byron got pissed at Ella when she went to visit 'Charlotte’ She might have visited her to ask about Bethany Young. In Aria’s basement, there was a red coat doll with brunette hair and at that time, Red Coat was identified as a blond. There were also portraits of Aria in A’s lair. Marlene posted a picture of the liars in Jail S2 and captioned it, “A remembers this #clue” Charlotte only took over in S3. Unless, Marlene was talking about Uber A. When Aria was at Radley, the patients were painting flowers and there were sunflowers behind the teacher. There’s always a sunflower reference when it comes to Aria. I found the symbolic meaning of it online: “The sunflower is the Greek symbol of Clytie (a water nymph) who turns into a sunflower after grieving over the loss of her love (Apollo). The mythological symbolism here is that Clytie is always facing the sun, looking for Apollo’s chariot to return and she might be joined again with her love.

Bethany was furious at Jessica for having an affair with her father, Byron. Byron was seen dressed like the father of the creepy twins, Aria was also seen wearing white socks and black Lolita shoes, just like the twins. Their kitchen stove is also a match! This theory could go both ways, either Aria is Bethany’s twin or she has twin sisters, who one of them happens to be Bethany Young. In Charles’ prom, Aria was seen dressed as an evil-version of Cinderella. Cinderella has evil step-sisters who can be seen as twins. Cinderella also has an evil step-mother, if the twin story is true, Ella is considered to be evil for admitting her children into Radley at such a young age. She’s no different from Kenneth. Aria was also seen dressed as Snow White at Rosewood High’s prom, who also has an evil step-mom. Coincidence? Yeah, right! Snow White was persuaded to eat the poison apple by the Evil Queen, PLL throws in symbolic apples into the show. At the Campbell’s farm, which was A’s old lair, there was a logo with twin peacocks and a bunch of red apples around it. TWIN PEACOCKS WITH A BUNCH OF RED APPLES AROUND IT. Bethany was buried at the unbuilt gazebo, Aria was seen making a hexagon shape out of matchsticks. She was also seen 'walking after midnight’ trying to keep up with Leah at the graveyard. Leah (Luke’s cousin from 4x13) was pushed into an open-grave where Aria happened to pull her out. This could be a clue that Aria did indeed save Bethany that night but can’t remember because they were all drugged by Alison. Leah and Aria resembles the 'Aria twin’ doll. Look close. There’s also a knife stabbed in her eye, which is a connection to the twin story. In 4x01, A got younger versions of the girls to play out a scene. Mona and Aria were the ones that were pushing the girls on the roundabout. We know that Mona was controlling the girls but what’s Little Aria’s purpose? Is she controlling the girls, too? Her twin, Bethany? There are a lot of creepy Aria and Mona scenes, 'Miss Aria, You’re A Killer. Not Ezra’s Wife’ Following the twin story, was Aria ABOUT to stab her twin, Bethany? But as soon as their parents walked in, she framed Bethany with the knife. Aria is obsessed with dolls, it’s no surprise if she decides to hurt someone over it.

If those are not peacocks and are swans instead, it just makes this theory a whole lot better! Aria was seen dressed as the Black Swan in S2! Melissa was forced to dress as BS, whereas Aria CHOSE to. Her dress wasn’t pitch black, it was actually a replica of the swan on the cover page. If you turn the picture upside down, a bull is to be seen (personality disorder/twin clue) Aria was also seen wearing a lot of necklaces & shirts with the bull logo. The bull also symbolizes Satan (devil emoji) Credit to @anacristinaviegas)

Everything’s revolving around Aria and her family. Ella and Byron are getting married, if the wedding takes place in 6x19, the episode where the twin possibly makes an appearance 'Did you miss me’, it would make a lot of sense. Aria’s twin crashes the wedding. Here are some clues I found, Aria gets arrested in 6x18, although she hasn’t done anything. They bring in other suspects who resemble her. That’s a twin clue right there. Aria gets burned at a dinner party (Montgomery’s?), quite interesting because Bethany has somewhat scarring to her face. I had a theory that Bethany and Aria could possibly be twins! Aria and Byron were also the last ones to wrap up the finale 6x20! Marlene posted a picture of Aria in the finale with the caption 'MIND-BLOWING ENDING, TWISTED, EPIC’

Ron Anderson TWD - The Meta

okay, let’s do this. i want to get this out of my system. i rewatched 6x09 just to reopen the wound so this should be good. :)

The wasted character - Ron Anderson

the majority of the fandom hated Ron (scratch that - the whole Anderson family). which was deliberately supposed to happen i think (oops). like i’ve mentioned in my 6x09 meta post they created the kid for one purpose only and that was shooting Carl’s eye out but of course he couldn’t just do that randomly right…? they had to give Ron reasons thus giving the character depth. they had to make him three-dimensional. they had to create a path which led to him pointing the gun at the Grimes’. and i gotta admit they did a pretty fucking awesome job because Ron was as three-dimensional as a character can get under this short period of time. that’s the reason why i love him so much. the eyerony of this shit is - pun intended - they created this amazing build up just to have Ron shoot Carl ACCIDENTALLY. WHAT? IF YOU’RE GOING THERE WHY NOT MAKE HIM DO IT ON PURPOSE? BECAUSE IT WOULD’VE ACTUALLY MADE SENSE THAT WAY? BECAUSE THAT WAY YOU WOULD’VE ACTUALLY GIVE THIS CHARACTER SOME RESPECT? WHAT’S LOGIC? WHAT’S LIFE? and that is what i think makes Ron such a wasted potential. they created such a raw and honest and flawed character JUST to do the “dirty” work. the growth this kid could’ve had and wasting a redemption arc like this are both fucking unbelieveable.

what is also fucking unbelieveable is the amount of hatred this character’s got from the fandom. of course the show is operating with characters who have been on TWD since s1. it’s not surprising that fans tend to not be open at first when new characters are introduced. which is fine. it’s a normal reaction. i didn’t really like Ron at first either. but i do find that ridiculous when someone loves and understands a character like Daryl Dixon - and we all know what he’s been through - but they just CAN’T understand and/or sympathize with Ron’s situation…are you aware that Daryl and Ron are basically two sides of the same coin? you call a grown ass man with a past like his ‘precious misunderstood baby’ for example but a teenager is ‘a trash asshole’. congratulations hypocrite. (note: i love Daryl please leave my head on.)

and now let’s have a closer look on Ron’s life shall we because apparently there are people in the fandom who think he didn’t have any reason to hate Rick. or to be troubled. [coughs] [pulls out long ass list out of thin air jESUS GIRL CALM DOWN] where do i start: domestic abuse (both done to you and your family) + people turning their heads in the other way in your community and basically ignoring the domestic violence because they need the abuser for medical reasons + father killed by the new guy who thinks he’s God (abusive asshole or not it’s still traumatic) + mom is romantically interested in the same guy who killed dad + girfriend is romantically interested in mini-God (Carl) + probably having no one to talk to + having to adapt to the end of the world under little to no time + mom and brother eaten alive in front of you (bonus: *chop chop*) = damaged goods…[Rebel Wilson voice] whoop there it is. call THIS an easy life.

and for the people who say he was an asshole to begin with please stop talking and watch the very first interaction between Ron and Carl. he’s just the most gentle and kindest baby.

The wasted talent: Austin Abrams

Austin killed it. his portrayal of Ron’s inner turmoil was insanely good. what i particularly like about Austin is that he’s acting and talking with hands, eyes, face, voice, body at the same time and it’s in “harmony”. that’s a hard fucking thing to do. and he nailed this “harmony” in every fucking scene he had. I could smyphatize with Ron because the portrayal felt real and that’s why I wanted more and more and more of this character. and I did. I still do but 6x09’s happened…

The wasted relationship: Ron x Carl

The love triangle: so I don’t know what’s the reason but it seems like writers are obsessed with the 'OMG LET’S MAKE A LOVE TRIANGLE’ idea. to quote @gr8writingtips “writing tip #1374: instead of a love triangle try doing literally anything else”. it’s boring, it’s superficial and it’s the most cliche of all the cliches. this show is on its 6th season. it can’t just disrespect its audience with a love triangle. i mean come on. character development, interaction between the characters, backstories of the characters, bonding between the characters. these are what most of the fans are interested in at this point.

Ron x Carl - The friendship: let me ask you a question TWD writers? why the fuck do you hate one of your main characters so much? when was the last time Carl had a friend around his age? or had a decent interaction or bonding experience with the people on the show (except Judith)? do you realize what kind of friendship could have been between these two? with Carl teaching Ron how to live and survive in this world? supporting each other and protecting each other on runs? i wanted to see Ron learn how this life works. i wanted to see them interact. would have watched the shit out of these two becoming best friends.

Ron x Carl - The relationship: so here’s the thing. these kids had INSANE chemistry. AND THE SHOW HAS DECIDED TO DO NOTHING WITH IT! YOU HAVE DECIDED TO GO WITH SOMETHING AS CLICHE AS A LOVE TRIANGLE! YOU COULD HAVE MADE CARL GRIMES BISEXUAL (and of course Ron too). DO YOU REALIZE HOW AMAZING THAT WOULD HAVE BEEN? HAVING ONE OF YOUR MAIN MALE CHARACTERS BISEXUAL? THERE’S YOUR ORIGINAL IDEA AMC! reasons: representation in this fucking show is very rare. if you would have gone through with this idea the love triangle could have actually create a great base for the relationship (frenemies-friends-lovers and who’s not a sucker for that trope). you don’t ignore the obvious chemistry. insane character development for both Ron and Carl (if you still go through with Ron’s family dying and Carl’s getting shot but with not Ron shooting Carl’s eye out and not making Ron watch how Rick chops his mom’s hand off). cute scenes between these two i mEAN HAVE YOU SEEN THE HANDHOLDING (dat post got me famous what up)?!?!!? Enid just being her own badass self and teasing and supporting the boys and being grossed out by all the love and have them as her best friends without being a love interest…i mean COME ON.

to quote @indie-arrow “bitter little espresso deserved better”.

Bonus: Jessie and Sam

like i said they HAD to make Ron three-dimensional. they didn’t have a choice. in Jessie and Sam’s case though they had and they chose to go with the easier path which was making both of them this weird 2D/3D mix of a characters. and it seems like they made these two more two-dimensional than three-dimensional. i think that’s why they seemed kinda simple. like in Sam’s case his fearfulness was enhanced thus introducing him as a coward which was totally not the case if you look closer and think but you know. it’s whatever. and in Jessie they enhanced this semi-shallowness which sounds weird but that was really the case. like i said we were supposed to hate them (again: oops). but they still had potential.

i mean i don’t know man i just found the Anderson family really interesting and i just wanted to see them develop and grow. fuck my life. *mic drop*

a comprehensive essay (of sorts)

I think the topic of Wonho’s role in Monsta X ought to be addressed, yet the question forever remains on how to start it. Officially, he is registered as a vocal and on stage seemingly charged with the task of eye candy (aka reduced to his body). Problematic because he is so much more. Hence in this essay, largely drawing from no.mercy, I will attempt to illustrate Shin Hoseok’s many talents: dancing, rearranging, singing, and leading.

Please keep in mind that these are all my personal conclusions and are not arranged in episodic order but rather arranged by theme. Neither did I expect this essay to be 5.6k worth of compact feelings regarding Wonho and no.mercy.

Why the heck hasn’t Bellarke gotten together yet, a Meta.

So here’s a meta I never thought I would write, cause everyone is always so caught up on the “behind the scenes” (aka jason, eliza, etc interviews)that they miss what the show is saying (screaming)

So there you go, @ivthegreatest​, as promised this meta is for you (i LOVE YOU for questioning this).
