and then smalls became canon

anonymous asked:

since this week is the 100th ep of a thing you love so much - what are some of your favorite small Perc'ahlia moments, either before or after they became canon?


gawd i rarely ever get asked perc’ahlia questions anymore. i almost wanna bring back TMI Tuesdays just so i have an excuse to talk about perc’ahlia to my dying days but lbr i don’t need an excuse i’m completely obnoxious with this ship (just not on here as much as on twitter coz L O L)

A N Y W A Y.

idk if there’s any moment that’s truly small for me, coz i always read so/too much into every little thing b U T i’ll try?????

  • it’s not totally underrated or small, but percy walking up to vex and mocking saundor after they beat him. like, a lot of people enjoyed it coz it was cute-funny, and coz it made vex laugh again, but i feel like it was more than just that??? it was more than just to make vex laugh, it was to make vex laugh at saundor’s words. percy, who enjoys wielding words as weapons, saw this fuccboi twig-dick shitlord do it to someone he felt strongly about, someone he knew had been easily torn down by words that other people said about her, and there was no fucking way he was going to let that stick. so to really kick a tree-man when he’s down, percy took saundor’s own words like a sword he was handing to vex by mocking him and making her laugh at the very things saundor said to her to get thru her defenses. i mean. what a hero.
  • i really love the parallel of them using residuum to bring each other back from their first deaths, esp coz i think vex might’ve remembered keyleth telling her that that’s how percy contributed to bringing her back. again, that’s not really small, at least not among my fellow shippers, but they remember things that the other has said or done, esp for each other, and that’s really nice
  • the hype for this died down a bit, but vex’s insistence that the new dress that she got when she and Keyleth went shopping be in Whitestone colors. esp coz laura had said (on Talks, i think???) that vex now thinks of Whitestone as home more than Emon, and wearing Whitestone’s colors signified that not just for herself but anyone who saw her wearing them. and in my head, she didn’t tell percy about the colors of the dress, she just surprised him with them and it made him blush and smile a bit and i really like sheepish, blushy percy okay what an image what a concept!!!
  • i like the thought that percy has ALWAYS done little things and given vex stuff because it makes/keeps her happy. like, he didn’t HAVE to. he could NOT do any of that if she didn’t ask him to and STILL stay on her good side simply because he’s part of Vox Machina but NAH. he learned early on that her being happy is important to him in one way or another, and in more ways than one, so he made it a point to give her (his) money and to make her arrows BECAUSE it makes her happy.
  • i have a deep appreciation for them being so public with their affections??? from the lil butt slap in the fire plane to the “big, sexy, still-tied-up make-out kiss” in raishan’s lair. like it’s just like "WE’RE SO TOGETHER OMG???!!!?!?!?!” like it’s. so cUTE? esp after they’ve been so quiet and private about how they felt about each other BEFORE they became canon, esp coz percy thought he wouldn’t be good for her back in the day. so to see them now thriving and relishing in their relationship is juST. SO PURE.

this post is getting a little long and also i’m still a bit busy at work so i’m gonna end it here for now B U T if i think of more, i’ll just add to this. :D

About POI’s character death...


1.) The way in which Root died. She died a hero’s death. She chose to put herself in danger to save Harold, a person she loves very intensely and platonically. This was no accidental, wrong place wrong time, bullshit plot bullet fired by a disapproving father figure, (like some other show I could name.) This actually fit well storywise and if this had happened in a vacuum or had Root not been queer, I’d have no more to say about it.

2.) Shaw’s reaction to the news of Root’s death. I think Shaw’s reaction was absolutely in character and also conveyed how much this is hurting her. Shaw is not one for wild displays of despair (unlike Root), but she is a woman of action. So that frozen pause she displays as the realization sinks in speaks volumes about how hard it hits her. Then her next sentence is about finding Harold. I understand this to be her coping mechanism - Focus on the mission, push everything else out. By focusing on saving Harold, she can avoid thinking about a world without Root, at least for a little while. 

3.) The Machine adopting Root’s voice as her own. Besides Harold, her creator, the Machine’s most important person is undeniably Root. Whatever the Machine’s capacity for love and/or attachment is, she feels strongly about Root. So while it’s painful for some of us to hear Root’s voice being used while Root is gone, I see it as the machine’s way of honoring her and keeping the memory of her alive.


1.) Another queer lady on TV has been killed off. As the always eloquent Maryne Lahaye tweeted, “Yes, a queer woman’s death can make sense & be great writing, but it’s STILL a very hurtful & overused trope, no matter how good it is.” These stories don’t happen in a vacuum and a good story doesn’t change the fact that one of the precious few examples of LGBT representation on TV has been taken away from us. AGAIN. And don’t fucking tell me that by being angry about it that I’m reducing the character to her sexual orientation. That’s not the fucking point. You may as well say that my desire to be able to play as a woman character in more video games that I’m reducing the character to a gender and gosh that’s sexist. REPRESENTATION MATTERS. Root was certainly a fully fleshed out, complex character. But we have many strong, smart, passionate, brave, flawed female characters on TV that we can choose from (although still not enough IMO). Know what we don’t have many of? Queer ladies. Specifically happy queer ladies.

2.) The showrunner’s insistence that they did not use the trope.  To be honest, I wasn’t truly angry and upset, (only tired and disappointed,) until I read the interview with the showrunners. Greg Plagmen and Jonathan Nolan, the showrunners of Person of intererest claim that through clever story and pure intentions, they completely circumvented the “Bury Your Gays” trope that has been plaguing television for years, although far more visibly this season. “As for the ‘Bury Your Gays’ trope, Nolan says POI didn’t fall into that trap. ‘Something becomes a trope or a cliche when it’s deployed cynically,’ Nolan said. ‘A publicity stunt, an attempt to goose ratings. We don’t give a shit about any of that stuff. This is where our story was going. There’s nothing remotely cynical about anything here.’” YOU DON’T GET TO DECIDE THAT YOU DIDN’T USE THE TROPE. INTENTIONS ARE NOT PART OF THE EQUATION. You killed your gay character in the episode immediately following her finding a shred of happiness, (recovering Shaw.) This absolutely follows the trope. To reiterate, I thought the details of Root’s death were acceptable, but don’t fucking tell me you didn’t invoke the trope because you had best of intentions. You 100% did and you should own up to that. This is so frustrating I could cry, because if they truly believe they didn’t fall into the trope, that if you kill your gay cleverly and nobly you negate it, than no one has learned anything and it WILL KEEP HAPPENING.

3.) This notion that Root is ‘not really dead’ but has ‘transcended’ and become the Machine. Bullshit. Root is dead. The machine has decided to use Root’s voice as her own. We may even see bits of Root’s personality come out. But this is all the Machine’s understanding of Root. Imitating Root. Hell, Lexa was more real in the chip and City of Light than Root is in the Machine. Lexa’s actual memories were uploaded into the CoL directly from her brain - What we see with the machine only comes from observation rather than directly. So no, this idea that Root is only ‘kinda dead’ does not make me feel better, and I resent people trying to console me this way.

Phew! Okay, just had to get that off my chest. I’m less angry after a week, but only because the beauty that is Wayhaught of Wynonna Earp became canon and the showrunner, Emily Andras, revealed a small spoiler to put the LGBT fans at ease (as in she promises that the cute gays are alive and together at the end of this season). So, yeah.
