basically the plot of season 6

Here’s the thing:

D&D made the Martells unlikable and unknowable as soon as Oberyn died. It was as if they pulled out all the stops and gave themselves the greenlight to do whatever the hell they want with the remaining characters. So they chose to:

1) Flip flop on Ellaria’s character, turning her from Oberyn’s likeminded partner into a mastermind of a plot to kill two children, one of them Oberyn’s nephew, and Doran
2) Make the Sand Snakes as bland and one-dimensional as possible, emphasizing that they are both Sexy and Deadly but still a little Incompetent
3) Kill off Doran and Trystane before the season ended, because they were just dead weight in the Dornish scorched earth storyline
4) Make sure Ellaria was painted as the Evil Bisexual Brown Woman and the Sand Snakes as her Evil Offspring
5) Oberyn’s influence just went POOF basically because killing Doran and Trystane has nothing to do with vengeance for Oberyn lol
6) Allowed them very little chracter development, kept them mysterious and frankly a little useless
7) Tried to make it seem believable that all of Dorne went like “lol okay sounds good” when Ellaria killed Doran and took over. Because brown people are treacherous and mindless anyways
8) Make the Dorne storyline the weakest point in their whole show
9) Oh, and cut Quentyn and Arianne because lol BORING, amiright? It’s more fun when the white folks angst over succession.

And that was just in season 6.

I can’t even muster any more rage over the treatment of show!Martells. Leave me to my wonderful book!Martells, the ones who actually care about the lives of children and innocents, who are more than sexy assassins, who are richer with the inclusion of Arianne and Quentyn (who make up all of the Martell POVs), and if/when they meet their doom there, I’ll get upset then.

But as for show!Martells? I can’t even force myself to give a shit anymore.

My Top Anime Recommendations

1. Haikyuu!! This is about volleyball. One of my first anime obsessions. It has so much comedy tho, and a lot of salty ass bitches and APPRECIATION FOR SHORT PEOPLE. I really recommend if ur new to anime. So far, I’m pretty sure it’s over but season 4 might be coming in 2017. It’s a sports anime about volley, as I mentioned and any mention of volleyball will trigger characters. 

 2. Yuri!!! On Ice A very gay ice skating show. Most of you have probably already watched it. It makes me cry way too much. And there’s a lot of kids you might want to adopt. Basically, if you ever wanted anything from your otp, watch this show and you’ll get double of that. Disadvantage is that it raises expectations for all animes smh.

 3. Tokyo Ghoul THIS IS THE SADDEST AND MOST BAD ASS ANIME EVER. Honestly, it made me so so so so upset. I cried a lot. But it’s like super cool. It has gruesome parts and a lot of things that might trigger suicidal people, those who hurt themselves or those who’ve been abused. If blood makes you uncomfortable, don’t watch. Other than that, it’s actually got a great plot and story and characters are amazingly developed. There’s a guy who’s slightly deranged tho, and a drag queen but those details can be skipped over. 

 4. Charlotte The reason I like this is because there’s a badass girl in this like what the fUck. They have supernatural powers and it’s cool BC the main character actually misused them like all the time it’s hilarious but later on he becomes so amazing and he’s so ffing domeSTIC AND CUTE. Also he’s very salty  AND OMG TE FINALE WAS AMAZING LIKE THE GUY, HE IS SO FUCKING COOL IT HAD ME CRYING SO HARD DEFFO ONE OF THE BESTEST ANIME

5. Bungou Stray Dogs Literally you will fall in love with the main character so fast lmao. Suicide mentions like, constantly. At first, it’s supposed to be humor but in the second season; the arc of one of the characters is so good and will explain why he mentions suicide so much. AGAIN WITH THE HUMOR. And unlike other supernatural animes I’ve watched, this one doesn’t make people with powers the bad guys. They’re very appreciated. 

6. Boku Dake Ga Inai Machi / Escape The plot is amazing. Made me cry a lot. The characters are great. Basically, it’s about how this guy goes back in time to prevent things from happening and oh mY GOSH ITS GREAT. 

7. Ajin 

Another super cool supernatural one. definitely worth it. Graphics are great and so are the characters. Its ongoing and the second season is about to end. you’ll seriously feel love/hate

 8. Free! Any mention of water will make main character strip. Quite gay. I haven’t watched all of it but I’m about to finish it in a few episodes. Again, this is good for anime beginners. Also, trigger warning for those who’re afraid of drowning.

9. K. That’s literally what it’s called. I think it stands for Kings but yeah. It’s also really good and it’s about head clans that are looking for a colorless king who can transfer into different people ad make them do awful things so they get targeted by the different clans (blue, red, etc)

10. Mob Psycho 100 ~ THIS IS A MUST WATCH. I keep adding new animes I know but this is important. It’s humor is on point, unexpected twists are everywhere. The characters are lovable and it’s really good for beginner supernatural anime. It’ll make you cry and laugh.

BONUS : DEATH NOTE. Okay, the plot is incredible. Things that you won’t be able to think of and they’ll leave you mind blown. Characters are human af like it’s supernatural but everything is so natural, like the nature of people. Warning: like, everyone dies. Don’t get too attached to characters. But yeah, it’s an old anime and has 37 episodes in total I think, but it’s super good!!

That’s about my top 10 (plus one bonus)

anonymous asked:

Could you maybe... I know this is a lot to ask, but explain the plot of Red vs. Blue? I want to get in the fandom but it's so much to watch... I'm only on the end of the first season! I would love you 5 ever :)

Heck yeah!  

I’m gonna try to keep this as non-spoilery as possible, but some things I sort of have to reveal.  

The first five seasons are known as the Blood Gulch Chronicles because they all (mostly) take place while the Reds and Blues are in Blood Gulch.  @eponymous-rose described them as “humor with a chance of plot” which is pretty spot on in my opinion.  (The first season is the hardest, trust me.  Trust me.)  

Wikipedia is my best friend and helped me start this with: “Red vs. Blue centers on the Red and Blue Teams, two groups of soldiers engaged in a supposed civil war. Originally, each team occupies a small base in a box canyon known as Blood Gulch. According to Simmons, one of the Red Team soldiers, each team’s base exists only in response to the other team’s base. It is later revealed that there is no actual civil war; both the Red and Blue armies are under the same command, Project Freelancer, and only exist as training simulations for Freelancer Agents. Although both teams generally dislike each other and have standing orders to defeat their opponents and capture their flag, neither team is usually motivated to fight the other (except for Sarge, the head of Red Team).”

in 11x18 when Crowley is telling Cas to kick lucifer out Cas says that "[dean] may have a more objective view of the situation" implying that dean wouldn't be influenced by his own emotions on this matter... Yet dean is literally the only one being influenced by his emotions regarding Cas' possession. I don't think Cas is aware of how dean actually feels towards him. I can't wait for the moment dean communicates honestly with Cas. I'll probably cry forever.

YEP! THIS IS THE RUNNING THEME THROUGHOUT THE WHOLE SHOW!

And it’s not like it’s only about their relationship either, but basically it affects everything. Season 6 and 12 is ALL about them not bloody communicating about the really important plot related stuff like purgatory and the colt… but it IS precisely because they’re trying to protect each other because of *reasons*.

Urgh. I mean, I know it’s endgame, I know that it will drag out some more, but it really is such a huge plot point for all their endgames that they work together, are honest and open with their feelings and their plans… it’s so important for all of TFW.

I cannot WAIT for that moment. Where we start seeing the honesty shining through, where Dean tells Cas he wants him to stay and doesn’t use an EXCUSE, where Cas stays even though duty in theory should take him elsewhere because he wants to stay and chooses to work WITH the boys instead of being their babysitter, where Sam doesn’t hide things from Dean and Dean admits so much about himself that he’s hidden before, that he is more than capable of doing the research (Sam is not the only one whose smart), that he likes Disney movies and ice cream sundaes, the moment that Cas realises that Dean loves him for who he is, not what he can do because Dean is more open about his feelings.

BECAUSE THIS SCENE AND THIS RUN OF EPISODES IS SO KEY.

Dean is a MESS trying to get through to Cas. He stands up to LUCIFER, he then stands up to AMARA to try to save Cas. Proving how much he cares and on top of that DEFYING his bond with Amara by calling out for Cas and SHE NOTICES AND USES THIS.

REBLOG YOUR FAVORITE THING ABOUT SEASON 6 BECAUSE NOBODY TALKS ABOUT IT, EYY? 

I honestly love everything, not just because Jay and Nya are my favorites, but because the plot is so creative and GOOOD LIKE JESUS THEY OUTDID THEMSELVES

So much went on in that season it would take me ages to explain the plot

Even if the season was about Cole, (who is my least favorite ninja) I would still find it very enjoyable to watch 

All the characters are lovable, Nadakhan and Flintlock’s voices are basically heaven, the Jay-Skylor-Ronin-Echo-Dareth-Captain Soto team is literally the best team, the orange and green color scheme- UGHGHG IT’S ALL SO GOOD

anonymous asked:

Even if Season 8 is longer, do you think there's time for to juggle both a White Walker and Dark!Dany plot? There's only 4 episodes of S7 left and the majority of the WW plot is yet to be explored. It's still very much about fighting for the throne etc. I guess as someone who sees Dark!Dany and possibly Jonsa happening, I wanted to ask your opinion on how these two major plots will be accomplished. Jonsa especially, will need time to happen to cross the bridge between platonic and romantic.

Hey, thanks for the question! Basically, I’m going to refer you to my ‘Game of Thrones and the Switch from Prose to Screen’ post for a more complete answer, which is honestly just a very unsatisfying: *shrug*

But personally, I feel like season 6 already laid the foundation for Jonsa; at this point the audience knows they aren’t really siblings and has had time to adjust, so it’s just a matter of getting the revelation out there for the characters. (Seriously, Bran, what’s the hold up?)

I also feel like the potential Dark!Dany plot has already been building for a while. There was that line of Cersei’s to remind the audience that yes, the Mother of Dragons has actually crucified a lot of people and fed some to her dragon children… There was Varys’s speech making him out to be the good guy and explaining why he ultimately backstabs every monarch he serves (definitely going to happen again with this monarch, unless she kills him first), and the clear foreshadowing of ‘queen of the ashes’ in the first episode this season. You don’t cock a Chekhov’s Gun like that and not set it off, is what I’m saying.

There’s also the fact that, I mean…Dany’s intentions have kind of always been inherently villainous, even way back in season one and two. Her only goal in life has been to get an army and invade a country that doesn’t want to be invaded in order to become its queen. Like, this is not ‘good guy’ behavior. I’m all for women with ambition, but this is an ambition that was always going to get a lot of people killed - if it wasn’t, she wouldn’t need an army in the first place. Armies are for killing people. Even now in the latest episodes, the only question is the number of casualties, not the fact that casualties will happen. She could have stayed in Meereen; she didn’t. Everything else is on her.

But I should clarify, I don’t necessarily think Dany is going to transform into a full-on Bad Guy™ the likes of Cersei and Littlefinger; I just think that 1. she is going to do some pretty terrible things in pursuit of her throne and 2. the people of Westeros itself will come to view her as a villain as a result. (Who knows what GOT viewers will come to think, as a group we are battier than any character in this show. Long live Tommen’s kitten Ser Pounce, the one true Prince That Was Promised!) And also, 3. that her arc can be read as a ‘descent into villainy’ rather than ‘a hero’s journey’ as a result, but again, this is Martin - we’re supposed to empathize with and care about his villains, and sometimes even doubt their actual villainy. That’s his entire goal.

And honestly - though be aware I don’t have any real idea what I’m talking about here - I just don’t see how complicated the WW plot is going to be…? I mean, it’s a zombie invasion. They’re zombies, and they’re invading. There’s a scary head zombie named the Night King, and he wants to kill humanity. Humanity, on the other hand, doesn’t want to die. I’m not saying it won’t be epic, I’m just saying…how much time do we really need to spend on this? It seems pretty straightforward to me. The Night King isn’t a character, he’s a plot device, just like the dragons; the WW threat isn’t a war where we need to care about both sides, it’s a natural disaster like an earthquake or a tsunami. This is inherently a much simpler plotline to resolve. (Again, I have zero evidence for this, it’s just my personal feelings on the topic.)

lost was only really good for the first 3 seasons, but i enjoyed the finale

I disagree about the last 3 seasons not being good.

The critics considered the slow pacing of the first half one of the biggest flaws of the show and that was fixed in season 4 and kept that way till the end.

The last three seasons is when the best character development takes place, to name a few: Sawyer starts caring about other people, we see Ben’s humanity and Hurley goes from comic relief to leader.

You could say that season 4 basically invented flash forwards. No other tv show had used it as a regular narrative technique before. I feel like Lost is not given credit enough by how ahead of its time it was.

Season 5 had a crazy time travel plot written and directed so expertly that they managed to not leave any loose ends and make every piece fit. Time travel is one of the most difficult themes from a screen writer point of view because is almost impossible to not make a continuity error. Lost made everything work.

Season 6 was loyal to everything the show had been to that day: unexpected development, a good balance between sci-fi and magic but still feeling real, with strong phylosophical roots but without being boring to watch. The worst thing with the ending of shows that have been running for so many seasons as Lost is that it becomes predictable. Even with sci-fi shows with a “crazy” plot like Lost fans more or less expect the ending. I have never met one Lost fan that started watching season 6 and correctly guessed what the flash-sideways were.

I think there’s people who don’t like the second half as they feel the show “went crazy” then, because it was when Lost finally went full science-fiction. But Lost was always a sci-fi show, in the first 3 seasons it was more in the background but puting all that in front was a necessary and expected move.

anonymous asked:

Ok this is way irrelevant now but this has always bugged me and I don't really know where to ask this so I'll just go the amazing meta master Tink. After Dean brings back Sam in s2 Azazel teases Dean about Sam 'not being 100% Sam' I think the quote is 'how certain are you that what you brought back is 100% pure Sam?' Like obviously Azazeal was playing heaps of mind games with them and maybe it was just to turn Dean against Sam but the show put so much weight on it and I just don't really get y?

Azazel: So, Dean… I gotta thank you. You see, demons can’t resurrect people, unless a deal is made. I know, red tape— it’ll make you nuts. But thanks to you, Sammy’s back in rotation. Now, I wasn’t counting on that, but I’m glad. I liked him better than Jake, anyhow. Tell me— have you ever heard the expression, “If a deal sounds too good to be true, it probably is?”

DEAN You call that deal good?

AZAZEL Well, it’s a better shake than your dad ever got. And you never wondered why? I’m surprised at you. I mean… (YED approaches DEAN to speak to him face-to-face) you saw what your brother just did to Jake, right? That was pretty cold, wasn’t it? How certain are you that what you brought back, is 100%, pure, Sam?

(SAM, watching, looks horrified; it’s not clear whether or not he can hear their conversation. In addition to black demon smoke, what appears to be ghosts are now also walking.)

AZAZEL: You of all people should know, that’s what’s dead, should stay dead. Anyway… thanks a bunch. I knew I kept you alive for some reason. Until now, anyway. I couldn’t have done it without your pathetic, self-loathing, self-destructive desire to sacrifice yourself for your family.

Then Azazel is killed.

IMO it’s all a set up for Sam + the demon blood arc, how much of what he does is Sam, how much is the demon blood, how much is he making his own choices and how much is he influenced by Ruby, how much does Azazel and Lucifer’s meddling and blood influence him and who he is?

Of course we know now that Sam is not evil, he is not bad, but these were questions that were key to seasons 1-5, if Dean IS the righteous man and Michael’s vessel does that mean Sam IS the boyking of Hell and Lucifer’s vessel?

They of course showed us that they are not, that they have free will and make their own choices and Sam makes the ultimate self sacrifice to save the world and prove that he is the opposite to Lucifer who wants to destroy the world due to his own selfish attitude.

Azazel also here sets up how Dean actually kinda started it all because of his own personal issues and inability to let Sam go, he in season 6 (though it’s not him really but still) equates Cas to Dean’s sugar, he exposes that John DOES love Dean as he sacrifices himself for him…. Azazel is basically a huge expositional character in how they write him after the original plot event of killing Mary and creating Sam’s demon blood arc. He’s really instrumental for the whole story which is awesome as the original big bad.

Imo it’s a part of all this narrative setting these questions in play :)

HODOR PLOT TWIST EXPLAINED

Basically, time is a big circle, a loop. Everything is predetermined, and the three-eyed raven knows all the events in this big loop and how they are connected.

So the three eyed raven knew Bran would make the mistake of touching the wrong tree root and will end up in front of the white walkers. He also knew that once that happens, his time will be up and Bran will have to “become” him. He knew then, that the white walkers will come for Bran, he’ll be killed by the wight king and Hodor will ultimately help Bran and Meera escape by holding the door.

So the three-eyed Raven takes Bran to Winterfell in the past, where Bran can come face to face with Hodor of the past. Time is a big loop, and by taking Bran in the past, the raven connects the present and past to each other. 

Bran is somehow, in the middle of the past and present. When the appropriate time comes, the three eyed raven encourages Bran to “listen” to Meera. So Bran does. He understands he has to warg into Hodor so that Hodor can help them. Bran’s act of warging into Hodor, connects Hodor’s past and present selves. Making the loop something like this:

So when the present time Hodor, hears Meera say “hold the door”, and starts to stop the door from opening, the past time Hodor can hear her too. And not just hear, but sort of experience it. Warging definitely has a toll on the person, but this warging is extreme, as it is across two different times. The extremity of it, screws up with Hodor’s brain in the past, who is somehow experiencing his last few moments without really realizing what is happening. He keeps hearing ‘Hold the door’ and the extreme experience of holding the door against the white walkers as they hurt him, has such a psychologically damaging effect on Wylis, that he ends up saying ‘Hodor’ for the rest of his life, and the growth of his brain stops, and he basically goes kinda insane.

anonymous asked:

what are your top 5 freela centric episodes?

  1. the late philip j. fry. i hated season 6 and i agree with some of the antis who say that freela wasn’t the best written that season. i think they’re supposed to be in an on again/off again friends-with-benefits relationship, because the writers weren’t sure if they were going to go there with them yet. despite the weirdness, there are a handful of great freela episodes this season, and tlpjf is the best one. i believe that aside from the sting, this is the episode where we really get to see how much fry means to leela. the basic plot of the episode is that fry is constantly late for dates with leela, and she’s fed up when he misses her birthday lunch. he convinces her to give him another chance with the “i can throw up on a stripper any night! tonight i want to not throw up. on you.” i love leela’s reaction to this line, because she seems so genuinely touched by it. (this was also the first revived episode that leela was actually in character for imo). so later, when fry misses her dinner, she assumes he went to hedonismbot’s bachelor party and was killed and is unsure if she should be sad or angry with him (she decides to be both). at this point in the series, the crew had become a family and that all falls apart in the years of fry’s absence. it seems leela’s only lasting friendship is with hermes, and she’s incredibly lonely otherwise, despite her success. leela has always wanted a successful career - it’s all she’s ever wanted. and yet she misses the days of near poverty because at least she was with fry. she even carries around a picture of them together in their wallet. this shows that despite what she says, leela is happiest when she’s with fry. and she misses him so much that she marries cubert purely because he’s fry’s nephew and resembles him somewhat. and so flash forward to them divorced, and leela says “i used to think there was someone for me” before she receives fry’s card. she finds out that fry didn’t ditch her that night and she hears him say that he loves her after like sixty years. you can see the heartbreak on her face because she’s wasted her entire life being bitter and angry towards him when the whole time he loved her. leela walks past the cavern on the green, and she feels fry’s presence. she knows when she leaves her message, fry is going to see it somehow. and he does. he feels her presence in there too. i know a lot of people think that fry doesn’t end up with his original leela, but he does. the third universe is an exact copy of the original, so the timeline where he disappears is erased. leela’s message “it was the best time of my life” is made more meaningful at the end when she says “what i’ll remember is our time together.” it’s all so romantic
  2. meanwhile. it’s such a cliched choice, but for me, it’s the perfect freela episode. the writers really went crazy giving freela shippers everything we could’ve ever wanted with this one. i love how the episode opens at luna park and instead of being sparring partners like they were in 102, they’re holding hands and reminiscing :’) i know the argument could be made that fry deciding to ask leela to marry him after she almost died was random and rushed because he’s always said he wanted to spend his life with her, but that was obvious fanservice to me and it was more than okay. i love that fry stole a bunch of rings and combined them into a giant ring so that it would be good enough for leela. i love that leela starts crying when he pulls out the ring. i love that leela says that it’s not sudden after thirteen years, like she’s been waiting all that time for this moment. i love that leela is so happy that she’s singing to herself when she walks to the vampire state building. (it was so in character for fry to try and commit suicide and although it’s very tragic, it’s been made clear that he deals with depression or some sort of mental illness.) it’s a small moment, but i love that when the professor disappears amy or bender is like “you killed the professor!” and leela says something along the lines of “who cares? fry is alive!” i know the antis are def gonna call her selfish for that, but i thought it was sweet, because it shows that she values fry more than anyone. and then later, when she tells him she’ll marry him “even if he wasn’t the last man on earth” it was just so perfect because yes. and then at the wedding when fry is unsure if leela is absolutely sure and she says “absolutely” and they kiss. the best. now, obviously the fucking montage. i remember on the commentary they said it took FOREVER to animate because there was no dialogue, but it was worth it or something along those lines. :’) and then that last scene. the last scene of the entire series is the most perfect scene forever in my heart. i remember david or matt saying that it’s not often that the cast gets to record together but for some freela occasions and esp for this ep, they make sure billy and katey get to record together bc their chemistry is the best and i just. fry’s speech is obviously written by the writers to be the way it is on purpose, but i still melt every time at “if i could only make one moment last forever, this is the one i would choose.” and that when fry asks if leela is lonely she says, “i was never lonely, not even for a minute.” i’m such a fucking sap because i cry every time she says that. it was like the writers speaking to the audience, confirming to the audience for the millionth and last time that yes, leela loves fry just as much as he loves her. this is the life she wanted and she doesn’t care about her job or anyone else as much as she cares about fry. 
  3. the sting. i was so tempted to put the why of fry in this spot, but this is a more freela centric episode. it truly is the pinnacle of romance and (sidenote) i love the score they composed for it. fry warning leela that she needs to be careful and then trying to fight that bee for her is just the most fry because he’s so god damn impulsive and thinks with his heart and not his head and leela is his heart so of course he’s going to die for her!!! leela’s box “memories of fry” is also the cutest fucking thing like she literally collected things that fry gave her or things that reminded her of him and put them in a box!! and someone pointed out that the box is all tattered so she’s gone through it a bunch of times and i’m just crying because this was back when she insisted that they were just friends. her dreams of fry are so cute too also and fry is so cute. my favorite one is definitely when he’s like “could a dream take you dancing in a venusian garden?” and then they’re on the ice fields of hyperion and he gives her his jacket (in real life too!!! so everything he’s saying he’s really saying to her) and leela says she’s never been treated so romantically by a dream. this was probably foreshadowing tbh, because at this point one of their biggest issues was that fry could never be romantic. and yeah, there’s stuff all throughout that’s super cute, but those last five minutes really kill me. this is the first episode where we see that leela is in love with fry even if she doesn’t come right out and say it. there’s been hints before (a flight to remember and war is the h word for example), but it becomes obvious here when she says “the only time i feel alright is in my dreams with you.” and then she straight up tries to kill herself because she would rather be in a coma for the rest of her life than spend one more second without fry. it goes against everything she’s ever claimed to be, but it doesn’t matter to her because happiness = fry. and then fry convinces her out of it because he believes in her and he sees how strong she is and he knows she’s better than this. (it’s a small moment but i love that when the bees come leela’s first instinct is to grab fry’s picture and protect him) and it’s fry/s convincing that gets her to wake up. and he sat by her side every day for weeks, never leaving her!!!! he brought her out of an irreversible coma with the power of their love. i’m crying.
  4. the why of fry. this one is my (second) favorite episode overall for personal reasons, but the freela we got in it is truly top notch. the plot is basically that nobody ever thinks fry is good enough (including both leela and fry) and he thinks that he doesn’t add anything to the universe, only to find out that the universe wouldn’t exist without him. finding out that nibbler brought him to the future without his permission, fry is heartbroken and the brains send him back to 1999 to prevent his past self from being frozen. the only thing that gets fry to reconsider is when nibbler asks him if there’s anyone worth saving, and fry says leela. just leela. not bender, not farnsworth, not amy, nobody. fry is so angry that his life was stolen from him that he doesn’t care about the consequences and doesn’t care that billions of people will no longer exist. the one thing that gets him to think logically is that leela won’t exist. and nibbler calls her ‘the other’ which we (annoyingly) never got an answer to, but i think it’s obvious that it means she’s the second most important person in the universe because it’s her life that gets fry to save the universe. and then the ending scene!!! fry walks right into frame and leela sees him and she smiles all lovestruck because even when other men let her down she always has fry! (also i love when whatshisface takes her to the rocket skating rink and she gets all thoughtful about when fry waited in line to get her tickets) and then she kisses him genuinely for the first time because she knows she loves him deep down, she just doesn’t want to admit it to herself. and her love makes fry the most important person in the universe, literally and figuratively 
  5. a flight to remember. i liked freela before this but this is when i fell in love with them. their banter and their chemistry is stellar. its the original fake dating au!!! and fry is being all gross about it bc he’s so immature and he thinks leela’s hot and they’re not really close yet they’re still kind of just co workers and “this view’s pretty romantic, i mean platonic” and then when leela kisses him they’re both so awkward bc they both felt something!! and then right after when amy kisses fry, leela is SO jealous because she clearly likes fry. it’s pretty obvious with the way she was protecting him in my three suns and how he’s already changed her view on the world but she’s never had to think about it before because why would she? but amy, who she thinks is far prettier, is kissing fry and she’s like. fuck no. and i love later when she’s lounging on the deck and giving fry the cold shoulder and he’s like “i consider my fake relationship with you a lot more meaningful” and she smiles the tiniest bit!!!!!!!!! the cutest!!! lmao in that same scene where she’s like “i’m not jealous fuck off” and then in the next dinner scene when fry kisses amy and she literally rolls her eye and storms off because she was so mad. i love the deck scene, it’s one of my favorites, because fry is saying all the right things. it’s probably one of the reasons leela was infatuated with him until she found out he likes her, because when he’s not trying to impress her, he knows her better than anybody else and knows how to cheer her up. and then they see the nebula and all the couples and it’s so romantic and they almost kiss because just like in xmas story, they’re lonely together. that’s always their thing. 
  6. fry and leela’s big fling. now imo, this is the funniest episode of the entire series and it delivered a+ freela content. i love them hiding their relationship from their co workers bc they know they’re going to be annoying af about it and i love them trying to get alone time. i also love how charming fry is with setting the office up for her! and i love when they go to the park and get robbed he puts his arm around her and then leela beats up bender to protect them lol. the “just the two of us” is super cute and them making out in the couch is so high school i can’t w their dorky asses. the vacation montage is so adorable obviously and i love their color coordinated outfits (just like their hair which is an underrated detail). probably the cutest part for me is when they go skinny dipping and you think it’s gonna get all sexy but they just play marco polo. they’re so cute. obviously all the bullshit with sean is the weakest part of the episode, but it doesn’t last too long and i love that leela had zero interest in him. i think it was sweet that the writers brought sean back too because for years, we’ve heard leela moon over him and now she’s just so bored by him. she changed so much. and then them having sex and making fun of the crew after ksdjsfj i love that they have gossip sessions. that continues later when they’re holding hands and making their dumb inside jokes and the crew is just getting angry w them. it’s such a cute episode and i love it.
  7. t the terrestrial. this is kind of a random choice, bc they really only have a scene at the end and i think it’s considered to be more of a frender ep, but it has a special place in my heart. one of my fav things about s7 is that it’s the canon freela season so they have background stuff in pretty much episode, but this one has some of the best!!! i love that leela keeps asking where fry is and each time bender makes up some excuse she’s like “he’s so cute!” but then probably my favorite is the fake answer machine. antis love to say that leela made fry change for her (when in the end she just accepted that she loved him for him) and this disproves that completely. bender makes the answering machine say that he’s drunk and is flaking on their date and leela says super cheerful “i love you!” i love katey’s delivery on that line, it’s so sweet. and then obviously the ending where they kiss and the omnicronian weed lights up because it means love :’) 
  8. fun on a bun. i literally forgot this episode existed for a second, fun on a bun sweetie i am so sorry. fry getting drunk and making a dick out of himself at oktoberfest is so fry and just completely in character for him, but leela is still leela and she’s such a perfectionist and doesn’t want attention drawn to her so it makes complete sense that she dumps him. and then she “eats him” and she’s so distraught that she goes to erase her memories of him because the pain is too unbearable. meanwhile, fry has bumped his head and can’t remember anything about his life, including her. even though they don’t remember each other, both leela and fry see things that remind them of each other and feel lonely because they’re not together. it really shows just how strong their bond is and really signifies that they truly are soulmates. and then at the end when they’re fighting each other and they see each other’s hair color, they just instantly make out because it’s how they’re meant to be. my favorite scene is definitely at the end when leela asks fry to dance when she’d been too embarrassed earlier. i love his response and i love this moment, it’s just so adorably fluffy.
  9. leela and the genestalk. this would probably be higher on most people’s lists, but i have too many episodes that i love. i think this one is important because we’d already seen in the prisoner of benda that fry and leela love each other regardless of what they look like, but that point is exemplified here. it’s also one of the first times in their romantic relationship that fry says just the right thing. obviously not at first when he screams at the sight of her tentacled body, but at the end. i love the part before that when he tries to kiss her and one of her tentacles kisses him back because every part of her loves fry. adorable. also when she packs to leave and packs her chicken hat from fun on a bun :’). leela leaves because she thinks that fry can do better than her and it’s so sad but it’s also true unconditional love. she tells him that too, and he tells her that “looks change. no matter what happens, you’ll always be leela. the woman i love.” the most romantic thing he’s ever said, no debate. and i love that when mom comes he hides behind her lol. he does that a lot when he’s scared, but i think that it really shows how much he respects her. 
  10. teenage mutant leela’s hurdles. it’s not a freela episode by any means, but it has it’s cute moments that i’m a sucker for. i love their date so much. i think it’s cute that now that they’re teenagers, leela wants to go out with him because she doesn’t have to worry about his maturity or having an adult relationship. i love how excited she is! i love that mandy says leela’s been bragging about fry since she got down there. she’s so proud to know him! how sweet. obviously also at the end when they’re their ages again and she tells him she’s happy to have her lfe back and smiles at him. that’s so important because leela’s always dreamed of a fantasy life, and instead, she’s happy to have her shitty life because she gets to be with her friends, including fry.

let me know if you want me to rank the movies!

How likely do you think it will be that shallura can ACTUALLY become canon? And do you think that the hits of shallura we have gotten are enough to constitute it having a higher probability of becoming canon then other ships? i ask is because i am huge shallura trash and can't think of this objectively (and it'll be hard of you to look at it objectively because you ship it but i still want your opinion). Basically do you think shallura will truly become canon and if so when?

I’ve talked it a bit in this post (ignore the first unrelated shallura paragraphs) but I’ll reiterate it here. I think, ignoring all the fandom/age discourse drivel, shallura has a good chance of being canon, at least as more of a side ship.

I can see shallura being more romantically developed rather than friendship-focused around season 6-8. That depends on the plot/pacing/length of the seasons however.

I wouldn’t be surprised if both main ships of the show (that is to say, shallura and kla/nce) only become canon in the very last episode. It certainly makes sense for Shiro and Allura’s characters - as in the last episode, the war would be over/ending - to only act/admit on their feelings when they feel their duties/responsibilities are lightening up a bit.

I hope this answers your question! And don’t worry, even if these two aren’t endgame, I’ll make sure they are in loads of fanfics :3

7 THINGS I WISHED THERE’D BEEN MORE TIME FOR IN GAME OF THRONES SEASON 7 EPISODE 7

1) Reunion of Missandei and Grey Worm. I mean, COME ON, PEOPLE! Just a little puppydoggish one, to make all our hearts crumble in an uncomplicated, it’s-not-incestuous-so-its-OK fashion?

2) Telling us where Gendry was. 

3) A rather longer conversation between the Hound and Brienne. I mean, she did basically KILL HIM. He is really very forgiving now.

4) Podrick and Bronn chatting over beer. Bronn: ‘so, what have you been doing?’ ‘Being beaten up by Brienne.’ ‘And? What else?’ ‘Um. Just that.’ ‘For the whole season?’ ‘Yep.’

5) Qyburn, plotting the patent of some sort of zombie-killing spray. He looked so excited. I think he could save everyone! Especially if he set up some fun science lab with Sam!

6) Sansa and Arya explaining to me, the stupid viewer, how all those scenes of unsisterly horridness were actually double-crossing Petyr. Or were they? Those weird awkward scenes WERE real, weren’t they? I think maybe Sansa just worked it out last-minute and Bran possibly piped up? #CONFUSED

7) More slow, patient walking by the undead crew. KIDDING

Just ignore it all, this season is basically Jeff's fanfic of his own show, nothing makes sense As far as I'm concerned, 6.10 was the real finale. Considering that Jeff probably won't even kill all those assholes he brought back time after time (Kate, Peter, Theo - well, Gerard may be an exception), I don't see any actual value in the whole plot of 6B.

i know basically the only episode that will “matter” is gonna be 6x20 because of all the returns and the ending but in my heart 6x10 was the finale

anonymous asked:

what about adam though, it seems unbelievable and so ooc for sam and dean to just forget about him like that, even if he's their half brother it bugs me real bad, and for that i like to head-canon that he's the bad guy next season just so to kick their asses a little, 😝

Fair enough! :)

Yeah I mean, I do also feel it’s a little OOC but at the same time what were they supposed to do - perhaps they could have asked Cas to go get him but you might have noticed Cas has been a bit busy, particularly in season 6, trying to stop the SECOND apocalypse basically on his own and since then they haven’t exactly had a minute, then Cas lost his powers sooooo…

It’s just one of those things I think story wise that just got… left behind. But then Dabb and team are enjoying going back into the plot holes of the past so you never know, it wouldn’t surprise me!

shiberet  asked:

Your favourite VB theories and/or the ones a fan that just recently finished watching the series (like me) should know?

Oh man. Buckle up, friend! Where do I even start..




I suppose I’ll begin with the prominent theory that Vendata is the Monarch’s dad. This started after Bot Seeks Bot due to Vendata’s words as he’s glitching at the end, asking “where is my wife?” and ending on “I think the plane is going doowwwn…” The Monarch’s parents died in a plane crash, and then I’ve gone over a lot more points here:

http://21derful.tumblr.com/post/144326621977/whats-your-opinion-on-the-theory-that-vendata-is




Speaking of the Monarch’s dad, there is a theory that Kano killed the Blue Morpho. This became a thing pretty quickly once the connection was revealed anyway, given Kano never says which “great man” he “took from the world”. This makes even more sense considering his silence was a penance, but he was mute WHILE working with Jonas. Why would he be paying penance for a crime he hadn’t yet committed?

Perhaps the best evidence, though, was something a friend of mine noticed during a rewatch. When Kano is first introduced to the boys, Col. Gentleman tells them “His hands are strong enough to crush a boulder, yet delicate enough to crush a butterfly.”

The butterfly is even blue.

But SG,” skeptics say, “this was way back in season 1! They probably didn’t know the Blue Morpho was a character back then!” And it’s true, A LOT of the show is made up as they go, expertly spinning together loose threads they’ve left for themselves. HOWEVER…

In the season 1 deleted scenes, Otto refers to the other members of Team Venture as “a sodomite, an adulterer, and a murderer”. Gentleman is gay and Action Man was a womanizer. This leaves Kano as the murderer. The scene was cut, but they knew back then he killed SOMEONE important. And emphasis on important, because all of Team Venture killed random folks. Kano’s was notable.

Furthermore, Doc confirmed just earlier this month at Dragon*Con that while there’s a lot they make up as they go, there IS some stuff they’ve known from the very beginning, and among those things, there are some we STILL don’t know. 

So between that and the similarity between Kano and the Green Hornet’s Kato having existed from the start, there’s even more support for the Blue Morpho and Kano having always been part of the backstory in at least some way. It may have changed and they may have never known if they’d ever get around to it, but I absolutely believe the basics were there.




Then there’s the theory that… There are several interconnected things and variations here.

There have (as far as I know, being a fan for only two years myself) always been theories that the Monarch and Rusty are related, and season 6 making the resemblance a plot point seems to support that even more, but exactly HOW they are related is a subject of much debate.

The most-common-as-far-as-I-can-tell theory seems to be that they are half-brothers (and the true titular Venture Brothers). This comes in two flavors: one being that Jonas had Rusty with some random woman, and is secretly the Monarch’s real father, having had an affair with his mother or hooking up with her with Morpho’s knowledge at one of his swinger parties; the other being that Jonas and Morpho each had a child with the same woman, whether due to affair, swinging, or being a poly triad. 

Of the above, I’m much more inclined to believe the second variety due to the Monarch/Vendata resemblance I pointed out before, and specifically prefer the triad variant because that would somewhat mirror the Monarch trio seemingly moving toward a higher likelihood of becoming a triad as well, and this show does love parallelism. The triad variant is probably my second-favorite theory on how they’re related overall.

A (mutually exclusive) different theory is that they’re not brothers, but cousins, and that Jonas and the Monarch’s mom are siblings.

There’s a theory that the Monarch is actually an imperfect clone of Rusty, and we’ll get to more on why in a different theory in a minute.

But my personal favorite theory incorporates a different theory:

The original Blue Morpho could very well have been a trans man, considering the whole incident with Dr. Z in the flashback from A Party For Tarzan. I am super down for this theory no matter what, but in particular…

I ship the hell out of Jonas/Morpho? So my personal favorite theory is that Rusty and the Monarch are not half brothers, but full brothers– and possibly even “twins” (triplets counting JJ)– and that their biological parents are Jonas and Morpho. This (a) allows the option of Jonas and the Monarch’s “mom” (from a social but not biological standpoint) being siblings while (b) still allowing a ‘the actual Venture Brothers’ variant, and (c ) takes the “mommy-less universe” angle of the show to an entirely different level with Rusty literally not having a mom.

The “twins” part comes from a quote from my debatably-favorite episode, Tears of a Sea Cow (8′D which incidentally has proven a Very Fucking Important Episode overall as of season 6, much to my extreme joy), wherein the Monarch refers to himself and Rusty as “Romulus and Remus”. And no, I don’t think he’d actually know they’re related, but that seems like the sort of thing that would be “accidentally” more appropriate than the character meant it in retrospect.

So that’s several theories in one.




Back to the Monarch clone thing. The biggest support for this comes from the Halloween special, wherein, amidst a string of fancy-sounding medical babble that the average viewer would have to look up to see what was even being said (which is to say: stated in the show, but not too directly, making it feel more like a hint than a potential red herring), Ben mentioned that a potential side effect of cloning was excessive facial hair growth, especially of the eyebrows.

Now… I don’t support the “Monarch is a clone of Rusty” theory, but I am very, VERY on-board with “the Monarch is a clone of himself”, in the same way Hank and Dean are, more or less. Evidence for this?

In this photo, (A) this kid has perfectly normal eyebrows, and (B) he and Rusty are around the same age.

In the Monarch’s flashback of the plane crash, when he was eight going on nine, his eyebrows were already noticeably long. But more importantly, that plane crash is confirmed for 1976, and we have a definitive age for the Monarch at the time. He was 8 that summer, and turned 9 the following September. This means that the Monarch was definitely born (”born”?) in September, 1967.

Meanwhile, Rusty is 43 in season 1 and his “44th year” is referenced in Twenty Years to Midnight, in season 2. Earlier in season 2, a villain named Crime-o-dile died, one of his henchmen mentioning this at the hench support group 21 and 24 attended. Much later, in Bot Seeks Bot in season 5, we see a headstone for Crime-o-dile placing his death in 2004. This makes Rusty’s year of birth pretty definitively 1960 (maybe give or take a few months).

So how can they be anywhere near the same age in this photo, or twins as I mentioned before? (Well, the easy answer is “Doc and Jackson don’t know the timeline either” but ssssshhhhh work with me.)

Based on Ben’s speech about holding a dying child in your arms, it sure sounds like SOMEONE’S kid died to prompt the cloning project. So the working theory is that Monarch doesn’t remember this photo because it wasn’t him, and the kid in this photo is long dead. Unlike Hank and Dean, his cloning wasn’t a thing anyone was prepared for and he had no memory synopsis.

In other words, Rusty and Malcolm were about the same age / possibly twins, but the Monarch isn’t Malcolm. He was cloned years later.



A few quick ones:

– Ben from the Halloween special is actually a washed-up Dr. Benton Quest, drinking his life away after having failed so hard with Johnny.

– Jonas Sr. is still alive, and the original Team Venture knows. They referred to Entman as “the first of Team Venture to go”, but shouldn’t Jonas Venture be considered part of Team Venture? Furthermore… When Rusty sees the fake Jonas his first question is “where have you been?”, not “how are you alive?” Annnnd… aliens were aware enough of Jonas to impersonate him, which leads me to believe that to figure out where he’s been, we should perhaps ask ourselves: “Is there Life on Mars?” [/bowiereference]

– (Side note: “The Man Who Sold The World” could definitely be another super interesting Bowie song to end up applying to Jonas.) 



I’m sure I’m forgetting plenty of good ones, but this is already super long so I’ll just wrap it up by presenting my absolute FAVORITE fan theory. Read and enjoy.

So I had a season 6B plot bunny

so basically Gerard goes after Stiles cos of Allison and riles up the mob against him and then he kills Stiles like in an instant and Derek is there and in his grief and desperation he regains his alohaness and bites Stiles trying to save him and then he kills Gerard who’s laughing like quick  and then just cry and howls and then tenderly kisses Stiles cold lips and admits that he loves him and then (in Disney fashion)

Stiles comes back to life and is like what did you say

And Derek repeats it all disbelieving like

And then Stiles is like I love you too

And they kiss

I also came up with a ‘blah blah years later’ epilogue: so Stiles and Lydia are sitting together watching little kids with strawberry blonde hair and other kids that look like Stiles running around and Stiles goes: 'no offence, you’re a strawberry blonde goddess but I’m so glad we broke up’ and then Lydia laughs and Derek appears like me too and Stiles and Derek kiss whilst Parrish plays with Lydia’s hair and its like happily ever after…

Teen Wolf S6E12

Considering my very bad, no good, horrible weekend, I’m finally watching the last episodes that are out. While playing a mobile game, cause concentration I do not have for this.


But of course that means plot bunny during shooting scene (argent, scott, malia)


Which is basically that seconds after Scott and Malia arrive as backup, so does Stiles with half of the FBIs graduating class, helluva pissed off on behalf of his bosses, and shooting a lot of kneecaps.


Because, ans I quote plot bunny Stiles: “some wannabe hunters are killing FBI agents with your guns, Argent. My bosses want them, dead or alive, and we,” with a motion to his Werewolf, Human, and Witch colleagues, “volunteered to bring them in.”


… And that’s how far that plot bunny went, but ey, it’s something!

i said this on twitter but rick and morty’s whole thing is blueballing us with positive interaction between, like, rick and morty. the newest season is basically more bait – in s3ep1 and the vindicators episode, rick didnt give a shit about morty! and now they’re turning it around in ep 6, where like half the plot hinged on rick caring about morty. this ridiculous back and forth is just…well, i hope they resolve it by the end of the season. i like watching the show, but i like just dipping my toes in it, and i especially dont like getting caught up in arguments about whether or not rick gives a shit because it’s flawed either way.
