best-arc

Ok, my thoughs on the finale

I think it was….alright, but it did have a lot of flaws, I think that the aspect that I didn’t like the most was that it was so focused on Raph and not on the other turtles, which is an aspect that I don’t really like to much in the franchise, is like in the X-men when they focuse too much on Wolverine and not in the others X-men, seriously what was the necessity of doing that, I know Raph is pretty popular but if it is the end of the series I think the best you can do is focus on the them of the series that were the turtles, which I will forgive this episodes a little because the end scene with the turtles and Myra and the revelation of Leo were the best thing of the arc, because it feel like something familiar and emotional, I really liked that even do the design of Leo is…..really ugly, I think that now the 2014 turtles look sexier than ever XD (bonus: nothing important but I just smiled when Mikey turn bien pinche Mexicano güey! :V ) Other disappointment was as so much people said the fact that the other characters were gone like out of nowhere and yeah, I was also pissed, can’t forgive that cause I believe that like any other of the characters could have done the same work as Myra with not so much difference, specially with April or Karai, which I thought it was just weird that the turtles were on the oasis and I would have liked that were just the turtles a not Myra cause they were like going for a vine of family (also, I don’t dislike Myra is just that I feel it would have been better if they stay with the other characters that we already knew) and well also the unsolved things wasn’t really another good fact.

But in the bright sight, I like Donnie being just positive even do that know he was a robot and he is still cute as alway, I like Mikey el Mexicano :v (ok I will stop XD) as I said the final ending and the confrontation with Leo, that Chompy and ICK weren’t forgoten and well the fact that you can fantasize about whatever you want about watch happen before, after, in the time the bomb exploded and basically anything you want to imagine, I don’t know how you guys may see this point but I will be really happy to see some fanfics, fan art or anything, I am just being positive.

So, in my conclusion, was a good ending for the series? Not really but I think it could have been better written and better made

Do you think another arc would have done it better? Technically, The Bebop and Rocksteady was the final arc, in that case I would think the finale was okand it was more like Turtles Forever finale with still unsolved answer, In my thoughts I believe the best finale would have been the season four finale for all the series, but If we will be only using the arcs of season five, I think Lone Rat and Cubs or the Usagi arc would have been more pleasant to watch

But overall I am just so happy that my favorite series of all time is officially complete, It has flaws, I know, but I just loved the way it is, even if is not perfect, I have been watching great shows this days, with great writing, acting, characters and animation, but my favorite series will always be this for the impact that have on me as a person, I am so proud I watched, I am proud of being a turtlefan, and TMNT 2012 will always be in my heart

Booyakasha my turtlefans, I love you all ❤️

can you believe we got to see alex danvers come out multiple times?? in different places and to different reactions??

straights™ always think you only come out once but it actually happens so many times and and I don’t think I’ve ever seen a show where we actually got to see a character come out to family and friends and coworkers and i still think supergirl has the best coming out story arc in history of television

  • A - Ships that you currently like a lot. (They don’t have to be OTPs because not everyone has OTPs.) Friendships, pairings, threesomes, etc. are allowed.
  • B - A pairing–platonic, romantic or sexual–that you initially didn’t consider, but someone changed your mind.
  • C - A ship you have never liked and probably never will.
  • D - A pairing you wish you liked but just can’t.

  • K - What character has your favorite development arc/the best development arc?
  • L - Say something genuinely nice about a character who isn’t one of your faves. (Characters you’re neutral about are fair game, as are characters you merely dislike.

Things You Missed Out On if You Never Watched the 2003 Original Series
  • The birth of Elicia Hughes
    • Which canonically happens on Edward’s birthday
  • Shou and Nina being a much bigger part of Edward and Al’s life.
    • They weren’t just some family the brothers met once. They lived with the Tucker’ for months before Nina died. 
  • Al being smart enough and advanced enough to pass the first part of the Alchemy Exam, pulling out solely because it would be dangerous for people to know he didn’t have a physical body.
  • Barry the Chopper as a human. Not only do the brother’s meet him before Laboratory 5, but Edward and Winry are almost killed by him. 
  • The Tringham brothers
  • By far the most iconic of any of the FMA/FMA:B openings
  • Hughes being crushed by a 12 ft monument of Elicia 
  • Roy and Edward head to head in one of the most epic duels of all time
  • Mini-skirts
  • Al and Martel being really close friends
  • Lust’s character being 176% more important and compelling. 
    • Like… way more important. I personally like the homunculi creation system in the original a lot more than in Brotherhood. With plotlines like that being so different there is no objective ‘better’. But, the way she was created paved the way for not only one of the best character study episodes (35, ‘Reunion of the Fallen’) but one of the best character redemption arcs, as it’s fueled by revelation of character motivation, not a moral change of heart.
    • Speaking of: the dynamic/relationship between Scar and Lust
      • I was genuinely shocked when I first came on Tumblr after finishing the original (before starting Brotherhood) and found absolutely nothing shipping wise between the two. I know now it’s because the majority of the fandom is dedicated to Brotherhood, but still. Maybe it’s just me, but I found their relationship to be one of the most complex and fascinating dynamics in the entire series. 
    • TBH, I think that with the exception of Selim and Greed (and maybe Bradley), the Homunculi in general are way more fleshed out, sympathetic, and so much more intriguing than just the evil bad guy henchmen of Father.
  • The Flame Alchemist, the Bachelor Lieutenant and the Mystery of Warehouse 13
  • One of the most iconic Royai scenes in history
  • Sheska being a much more important character and her being a key player in solving Hughes murder
    • SHESKA AND WINRY BEING BEST FRIENDS 

This is all I’ve got right now just going off the top of my head but I’m sure there are way more please feel free to add anything I missed.

Moments of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 (MAY HAVE SPOILERS)

-Drax’s infectious laughter through the whole movie.

-Additionally Drax’s continuous ineptitude for social interaction, especially with Mantis.

-Gamora truly becoming Space Mum and suffering the whole time.

-The entire family dynamics within the team and the fact romance was vaguely alluded to, but wasn’t more important over family unlike most other hero movies.

-Kraglin being the Best Boy!!! The purest character in the movie who deserves only good.

-Groot being brilliant comedic relief, but ultimately also being a 3D character who pulls through in the end.

-More trAGIC BACKSTORY FOR ALL!!

-Nebula having the best redemption arc and the saddest reasoning behind it all.

-#Let Gamora and Nebula hug more 2k17.

-Also someone give Rocket more hugs because he suffers too much. Real revelation of his character and his scene with Yondu fuCK!!

-Yondu = true dad and hero of the movie.

-FUCK EGO AND HIS STUPID FUCKING ASS HE CAN BURN IN HELL FOR WHAT HE DID TO PETER!!

-Movie should be renamed “The Incredibly Shitty and Horrendous Time in Peter Quill’s Life”. Let him rest.

-The unabashed hints and references dropped. Every five seconds they references someone and it was amazing.

-The soundtrack once more!

-The reference they did to the first movie where Groot freezes while dancing when Drax sees him.

-Groot. That’s it. He was amazing.

-Mantis and Drax’s incredibly weird but endearing platonic relationship that I hope stays platonic forever because it’s too good.

-Someone must tell Mantis she’s beautiful every day this girl needs it.

-Teach Mantis to smile and love herself !!!

-Big Sister Gamora must take Mantis under her wing and teach her not to take shit from anyone.

-Dad Peter at the end with Groot. Takes after his dad Yondu. Next he’ll threaten to eat Groot.

-The inappropriately times jokes.

There’s so much more good parts to this movie but I’ve rambled on too long already. It must be watched!!

supergirl season 1 appreciation week
day 6: best arc (cat’s growth through kara)

I just want you to know that working for you is a true honor. You are my role model, and you lead this city with such strength and grace. And underneath that prickly exterior you have the biggest heart of anyone I know. I just… I’m just trying to say thank you, for being an amazing mentor… and friend. 

Well, you’ve made quite the impression on me, too, Kiera.

“You may not be the sun that shines above the people, but I alone know of your lunar beauty, which secretly illuminates this land” 

The Artemis Fowl books advocate for the environment, deal with misogyny in the workplace and the need for feminism, and has some of the best character development arcs like ever over the span of eight books. Also, there’s magic and fairies with guns and time travel and a whole lot of sarcasm and really no downside to reading them

  • Yuu: I don't want to lie anymore
  • Yoichi: Yuu-kun...
  • Kimizuki: lie about what?
  • Yuu: it's Mika. I've been dating Mika.
  • Everyone: Mika?!
  • Shinoa: Yuu is not the only one!
  • Narumi: you're dating Mika too?
  • Shinoa: what? No- I... Mitsuba's always been my best pal, but now I love her.
  • Kimizuki: wait a minute... Yuu and Mika... Shinoa and Mitsuba? You mean... I've been keeping my relationship with Yoichi a secret this whole time for nothing?!
  • Yoichi: babe-
  • Narumi: I THOUGHT I WAS THE ONLY ONE
  • Crowley: wait you have a boyfriend?
  • Narumi: yeah... he's a member of my squad, Shuusaku...
  • Yoichi: wait a second! Is there anyone else who's going to come out?
  • Everyone: ...
  • Crowley: I don't like anyone

my general impression of each of the hxh arcs:

  • hunter exam: our four boys meet each other and slowly become a team/family. we start getting their backstories. other than that one pedophile dressed as a clown, everything is cute and fun.
  • zoldyck family: killua’s backstory. things start getting Slightly More Fucked, but generally the day is saved through The Power of Friendship and everything is still sweet and lovely.
  • heavens arena: gon and killua live in a hotel together for a season. great fight scenes.
  • yorknew city: someone please give kurapika a hug. why did they take the ice cream scene out of the remake.
  • Greed Island: best arc!!!!!!!!!!! adorable!!!!!!!!!!!!! an old woman tries to con gon and killua and ends up adopting them because she realizes they’re too precious for this world. right at the end shit gets real and gon loses a limb, but don’t worry about that.
  • chimera ants: the show takes a complete 180 from the last arc. everything is fucked!!!!! everything is terrible!!!! why is this happening someone please give killua a hug!!!!
  • 13th hunter chairman election: we’re gonna take the love and friendship between the two main characters - the relationship that has been the foundation of the entire show so far - and just fucking rip it apart because fuck you that’s why.
  • dark continent: remember all those characters in this entire show that you grew to love? never mind any of them, here’s a thousand pages of politics about a million new boring characters you don’t give a shit about. and you’ll take it and be thankful for it because at least it’s not on hiatus anymore.
Cursed Child Scorbus Rec List

This really has become more of an index than a rec list, with categories of: 

Full length chaptered stories, Series, arcs, collections and short chaptered stories, Atmospheric, poetic, ficlets and drabbles, Pre-slash, Fluff, Established relationships, Flangst, Dark Angst, Humor, Holidays, Coming Out, Smut, Fix-Its/Re-Writes, and AUs

Last time I counted there were over 200 fics on here!

Basically my requirements for this list are:
Is it Cursed Child compliant, in the CC universe or do the characterizations feel close enough to CC?
No disturbing side-pairings or themes (i.e. no dub-con, abuse, drug use, infidelity or major character death. Exceptions will have warnings.)
Is it decently written, easy enough to understand and not cringe-worthy?
Did it make me smile or feel things?
Have I actually read it?

There are many stories, especially multi-chapters and WIPs, that I haven’t gotten around to yet, so this list is mostly made up of one-shots. It is my New Year’s resolution to read longer works. Feel free to add your recommendations in your reblog! Happy Holidays you wonderful little fandom! 

Note: I have categorized these fairly loosely. Some fics may fit into more than one category, but I don’t list them twice unless they are individual parts of an arc. The first section is uncategorized. They are a few of my faves, though I definitely have favorites in other categories like atmospheric and fluff, however these ones seemed slightly more complex and are a bit longer. So consider this category…


A Good Place to Start

*Best Mates- picascribit

“You deserve to be with someone who really likes you. Who thinks you’re brilliant.“

Scorpius grinned. “I’ve got you for that.”

One of the first Albus/Scorpius stories I read after CC, and still one of my favorites. This is Part 1 of Pica’s Scorbus Arc, but it is perfect as a stand-alone. The stories do get more mature.

*The First Date- rainystreetlights

“Still under the impression that you should have been the first to get a girlfriend eh? What can I say… Ladies love me.”

“Ladies tolerate you.”

‘One-Shot set in Albus and Scorpius’ sixth year at Hogwarts. When Rose doesn’t show up, Albus and Scorpius end up going on an accidental first date. Pure Scorpius and Albus fluff. Awkward conversations and a lot of strange situations’.

I love this so much. This author has seen the play and it shows. Her characterizations and dialogue are so spot on. So awkward, adorable and heartfelt!

*The Ball- torestoreamends

‘A ball is being held at Hogwarts to celebrate the end of fifth and seventh year exams. Scorpius has agreed to go with Rose, and Albus shouldn’t be as upset about that as he is. Dancing, fancy robes, obliviousness, and a small sprinkling of brotherly advice ensue.’

This is so gorgeous. Just her description of the robes slayed me. Read everything by torestoreamends!

*Seasons- starlightpeddlar

‘From the moment Scorpius and Albus get on the Hogwarts Express for their fifth year, things start to change. Albus starts to gain confidence both in the classroom and out of it, and Scorpius’ realization that he has greater feelings for his best friend threatens to leave him more alone than he’d ever imagined’.

Wonderful four chapter prequel to ‘Quietly’. Quietly is quite long and intense, but this is a nice getting together story, though it is still quite meaty and introduces important themes for the series.

*Put Your Guns Away Its Tea Time- frombluetored

‘Ginny Potter estimates it will only take three days into the Weasley-Potter family holiday for Albus to act on his feelings for his best friend. Albus estimates it will only take three days for him to die of embarrassment. And Scorpius, well. Scorpius is just glad to be there with Albus in the first place.’

I love this so much! The characters are so spot on and we get to see other Next Gen kids as well as all the grown up characters we love. Come for the Scorbus, stay for Ginny and the whole Weasley clan.
