ask kates

anonymous asked:

Okay but can I give a quick contribution to the conversation? Because I HATE K*te *rgent and I hate JD even more for bringing her back, and like, TP saying sterek is a 'weird, bizzare, twisted thing' when the show is LITERALLY SHOVING DOWN OUR THROATS K*te/Derek, his abuser, rapist, without a) anknowledging those very facts, and b) trying to cover it with humor like 'hahahaha those cheekbones man, ANYONE would take a piece of that' like. Holy shit. JD is not a gift

Wait wait wait though, anon. I haven’t seen any of the scenes from the last episode (outside of what’s floated across my dash in gif form) but was the show in any way being pro Derek/Kate in that episode?? Because that would be absolutely horrifying and I would launch so many protests.

All I’ve seen of Kate, though, was her aiming a gun to Derek’s head and Chris shooting her (*clutches heart at Chris protecting Derek*) so it seems pretty established that Kate was still an evil psycho bent on tormenting Derek and he hated her?

I doubt the word rape is ever going to be used in regards to either Kate or Jennifer, and I don’t know if Jeff even realizes that’s what it was tbh, but Kate taunting Derek or making gross comments about how attractive he is IMO just adds to the pile of evidence of what a horrible heartless psycho she is, and if she had to come back (which I guess she did because she was allowed to survive s4 for some reason, I’m kind of glad they’re making some effort to tie up loose threads) then I’m glad she’s being brought back as a villain, as opposed to the show trying to make her seem less evil or put her on some kind of dumb, forced redemption arc like a lot of other former villains. Like… practically every other former villain who isn’t dead tbh.

I don’t mind villains, as long as they’re treated like villains. (Like… I loathe Kate as a person, but not so much as a character, if that makes sense.) It’s when characters do horrible things and are still treated like heroes that I really start getting upset.

What's the MOST EXTRA Bellarke scene you like?

Oooh this is a fun ask.

But this is going to be hard because Bellamy and Clarke are so Extra about each other it’s ridiculous.

I mean there are SO MANY EXTRA MOMENTS

We’ve got THIS gem:

CRASHED 

FUCKING

CAR 

BECAUSE OF IT

OH. MY. FUCKING. GOD.

(I WILL NEVER STOP SCREAMING ABOUT THIS SCENE)

Okay okay so those were some good scenes, but of all of them … the most Extra scene that is my FAVOURITE scene has to go to this one:

Originally posted by saviourblake-archive

She literally THROWS herself at him. Like, that’s how happy she is to see him. I mean, compare this hug to her hug with Raven or - fuck - to her hug with Octavia, who she ALSO didn’t know was alive (and didn’t even ask her mom either???) She’s just like “oh hey octavia didn’t see you there, I thought you were dead but tbh i only ever really cared about your brother, it’s Chill tho”

SHE IS SO EXTRA ABOUT BELLAMY BLAKE OH MY GOD

This scene is just a really amazing scene because it’s so HAPPY and pure and beautiful. And it was a first in their relationship (first hug, it signalled the start of their dynamic in Season 2). So that’s why it’s my favourite Extra scene. Whether it’s the MOST Extra scene … that’s up for debate. But it’s definitely Extra, and it’s definitely amazing, so this is my answer :)

Hypothetically...
  • Draco: So, Potter... hypothetically, if there was someone who's secretly loved you for the past seven years but tried to hide it as much as possible, let's say by making empty threats and daily taunts... maybe even by breaking your nose or trying to make you fall off your broom while pretending to be a dementor... how would that person get you to agree to go on a date with him?
  • Draco: Asking for a friend.

“Why Did Bellamy Fall in Love with Clarke?”

So I recently got an anonymous message asking me this question and I was preparing myself to answer with the typical “because she’s supportive and he respects her and trusts her and blah blah blah” response which definitely isn’t WRONG, and are definitely reasons why I ship Bellarke, but I also feel like it goes a lot deeper than that. 

I haven’t written a good, solid meta in awhile, I feel like, and this question hit me really hard for some reason, so I am going to answer it separate from the ask in more depth. And, since I’m feeling extra, I’m probably going to make another post answering why Clarke fell in love with Bellamy because - yes - this ship goes both ways and I am sure as hell going to take every opportunity I get to prove that.

To start off, I don’t really think that there is one particular reason why Bellamy fell in love with Clarke. You can’t really go about it by saying “well, Bellamy really likes this trait and this trait and this trait - therefore, he loves Clarke because she encompasses all three” because I don’t think that’s really how love works. I do think that she has traits that Bellamy really likes and respects, and I think that’s how they became friends. But then he fell in love with her and it wasn’t just about those traits anymore. Because love isn’t selective. He doesn’t just love some parts of her and not the others. He loves Clarke as a whole, as a person. He loves all of her pieces and parts and fragments. He just loves her.

But why?

Like…I don’t really care if interviewers don’t outwardly ask or acknowledge Kate’s lesbianism during interviews because she’s a private person and that’s her prerogative. But for the love of god, can we stop having interviews where she’s asked about men in a sexual or even romantic context? Can we stop with the heterosexism that plagues so many of her encounters with these entertainment “journalists”? It’s so uncomfortable and while she handles it well, I can’t imagine she enjoys being put in that position. It’s honestly just disrespectful.

anonymous asked:

Sup! I loved your recent heart/head meta. Pretty much agree with everything you said. I was just wondering what your read was on that glorious face caress from 4x13. I always interpreted it as their first flirtatious intimate moment. Like Bellamy, literally just touched her, because he WANTED to. It wasn't about comfort that time. And Clarke's reaction was just cute. Idk, I just found that to be such a leap in the intimacy they've always shared. What were thoughts on that particular moment?

Thanks nonny! Glad you liked my meta (not so recent now since I took approximately six years and seven days to answer this ask).

That glorious face caress is one of my FAVOURITE moments of the finale (there were a lot) and, honestly, the whole show. Seriously. Whenever I see it giffed on my dash I have to take at least a ten minute break from scrolling just to stare at it and die half a million small deaths.

I MEAN JUST LOOK AT THIS SHIT

I like how you say it was Bellarke first flirtatious intimate moment. They’ve had flirtatious moments before, and they’ve had intimate moments but the oxymoron scene manages to combine both of those elements and the end product was MAGNIFICENT. There’s so many things that I love about it, I don’t even really know where to start - Bob and Eliza (especially Eliza, just look at her face dam) capture so. much. in this short little scene and I can’t believe how layered it is.

This moment, in retrospect, feels so tragic and heartbreaking. You can just see in Clarke’s eyes that she knows something is wrong, and she doesn’t think she can stop it this time. There’s this massive sense of foreboding that she feels and you can see it in her eyes. But what really breaks my heart about it is that there’s also so much love there in her eyes. You can tell in the way she sort of lingers after his touch that she wants more, she wants to lean into it. And that’s how I interpret her initial expression where she stares at him and just kind of blinks and looks away - almost like she’s shy, like she’s a girl falling in love for the first time (even though we know she’s fallen in love before). 

But when she looks back, it’s almost with a kind of resignation. She looks sad, because she just can’t shake the feeling that she might not make it out of this alive, and she knows that she may never get to have that kind of relationship with Bellamy. But she wants it, dammit. So badly. And it hurts so much because she knows that she can’t have it. 

Not just because she thinks there’s no time, (it always a problem with time *sigh*) but because if she’s right, and if she dies, then it means she would leave Bellamy behind. Clarke has been there already, losing two of her loves right after finally confessing her love/starting a relationship, and she just can’t put Bellamy through that pain. She can’t tell him she loves him, or kiss him, or hold him in the way that she wants to because she believes that she will die, and knows that when she’s gone it will only be even more excruciating for him to let her go. 

She doesn’t hold back because she wants to, she does it because she loves him too much to put him through that heartbreak of losing her right after finally getting to love her in the way they both want. 

Fuck. I’m emo about this all over again. did i ever really stop being emo tho

I think that, in the fandom, people like to focus a lot on how Bellamy looks at Clarke - which does make sense, considering a lot of people first started shipping Bellarke based on the evolution of Bob’s subtle expression changes when staring at Clarke - but sometimes there’s a scene where Clarke is looking at Bellamy like THAT and it just kills me. Repeatedly. I love the way Bellamy looks at Clarke, don’t get me wrong, but we talk about it all the time and I feel like we just don’t talk about it as much with Clarke.

BUT LOOK AT HOMEGIRL’S FACE !!!!

She is SO in love and you can see it right there in her eyes. Clear as day.

You know what? I think I just realized something about this moment that makes me love it so much. Clarke’s wall that she has so carefully built up has just … completely evaporated. She is so vulnerable in this moment, unlike basically any other time we’ve seen her. Every emotion is right there on her face to see: the fear, the love, the dread. It’s all there. She just can’t hide it, not with Bellamy.

And that bare, uncovered honesty and vulnerability … that is intimate. The way Bellamy reaches out to touch her, without even really thinking about it because it just feels right, is intimate. And the way that she doesn’t stop him, almost leans into his touch, is intimacy too.

How many people do you let touch your face? Because I fucking hate when people touch my face. If a stranger does it, it’s creepy. If a friend does it, it’s weird. Face caresses like that just aren’t platonic gestures. You’d only let someone touch you like that if you feel 100% and totally comfortable around them, if you really love them. 

You’re right - the intimacy runs deep in this scene. 

And like you said, there’s no real reason for Bellamy to reach out to touch her face. He could have just mentioned that she’s burning up. It wasn’t even really meant to be comforting (although it probably was comforting for Clarke, to some extent), it really seems like Bellamy just impulsively reached his hand out to touch her because she was right there and he. just. couldn’t. help. himself. 

Fuck. He loves her so much (!!) I’m actually physically aching right now.

The way he caresses her face is SO SOFT I could literally cry about it. And her face fucks me up in so many ways (which I’ve already talked about). I crave death, holy shit.

Man, why would you do this to me nonny? I’m DYING. 

This moment is everything

anonymous asked:

My God I can't believe it. *someone* is already saying that the baby is just an excuse for W&K to avoid working more... Smh. Can't they just be happy for them ?

Honestly you can tell these people have never been pregnant if they think that it’s a good way to avoid work. I don’t consider vomiting constantly and giving up control of my own body because I’m GROWING A DAMN HUMAN that I will eventually push out of my tiny vagina to be exactly a holiday. Kate and William obviously wanted a third baby, and it’s their human right to choose to have one. The option is to do it now when they’ve only just become full time and are still building their way up or in a couple of years when they’re completely full time and kate will be giving up hundreds of engagements for maternity leave instead of the dozens she’ll give up now. Long term, this is the better option but these people are obviously sad, sexist and desperate for attention so no matter when kate got pregnant it would be the wrong time

i cant believe billy’s favourite movie is the sound of music

im listening to the sound of music soundtrack just so i can think about billy kaplan dramatically singing to it all

let me propose this:

-toddler billy being entranced by so long, farewell but he cant really handle all the words yet all so he settles with singing goodbYEEEEE to anyone leaving the house for the next three months

-child billy fully going for the hills are alive, standing up on the sofa to belt it despite his family’s protests

-teenage billy driving teddy crazy by knowing all of the words to how do you solve a problem like maria. it would be so cute except hes been singing it for four days straight now please billy stop

-billy kaplan the night before his seventeenth birthday singing I AM SIXTEEN GOING ON SEVENTEEN to anyone who will listen

-billy singing my favourite things and doesn’t bother to stop his magic from responding. wild geese that fly with the moon on their wings go soaring past the window. snowflakes start to fall from the ceiling and they stay on his nose and eyelashes. teddy is suddenly wearing a white dress with a blue satin sash.

-kate and billy trying to sing all the parts of do re mi between them

-billy tentatively proposing that their first dance at their wedding be to edelweiss. teddy considering it because that’s his favourite song from the soundtrack, and it makes him think of his mum

-adult billy singing i have confidence to his child while taking her with him about the house, making her giggle as he does his chores by magic and makes faces at his baby girl

-teddy offering to make the family tea. do you want it with jam and bread? opportunity glints in billys eyes. TEA, TEA WITH JAM, JAM AND BREAD he sings, and their 7 year old comes through to the kitchen to join in, and teddy can only laugh exasperatedly
