BBC Merlin wanted us to believe that all the big bads were women like Nimueh, Morgause and Morgana, when the actual villain that’s done much worse than any of these women, was Uther Pendragon, who just so happens to be a white straight male. Double standards much?
I can’t help but think the guards beating Ed gave him horrible flashback to his childhood! That hit me when I watched the scene. We have never seen Ed geting beaten like that, when cops and Strange’s men has taken care of him they have just surrounded him and held him or pushed him forward to walk. Which just makes me believe he hasn’t been beaten like that since he left home, which was a long time ago. Now we saw Ed looking at the guards and he had no time to react before he was down on the floor getting beaten and screaming! I think that this exact scenario has happened to Ed too many times, lying helpless on the floor screaming and begging his father to stop the beating but it didn’t stop, it felt like it would never stop. And I just can’t see how this could do anything else but bring all those terrible memories back.
Then the dialogue with Oswald. Oswald says he is happy that Ed got beaten up and the look on Ed’s face is just ugh.
Ofc there are tons of emotions right there and then for the whole situation too. But Oswald basically said Ed deserved to get beaten up and I can imagine that’s exactly what his father has told him every time it happened…
I hope this was a glance of more to come. I hope that we get to dive into Ed’s background and childhood in season 4 because there is so much to make on that! Sad and hurtful yes but that’s Gotham.
what saddens me more: lily and james holding harry for the first time, singing him softly to sleep. harry was once held in his mother’s arms. he was cradled and cuddled and loved more than anything. his forehead was adorned with kisses once, james blew raspberries on his tummy and kissed each one of his fingers.
what harry wanted more than anything was his parents with him, and yet his body once knew their touch
I’M SO SORRY FOR THIS BEING SUCH A LONG POST AAAAAA GOD I WISH I KNEW HOW TO FORMAT THIS BETTER.
Tumblr makes this look really ugly ew. They look better when you click on the images but then it’s too small to see >:T I really just figure out a better way ugh. Anyway this took me like almost a week to finish and I’m already late to the party lmao. I love how this works perfectly for the events in between Alone at Sea and Beta. Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to wipe the tear stains off my tablet now.
Seeing that he was on his last legs, Levi tries to get a few more answers from his former guardian before he can pass on, starting with whether he knew anything about the former King before Rod, and his reason for not wanting mankind to survive by caging them in these walls.
Unfortunately he really wasn’t able to acquire such knowledge from Uri, even though they had a fairly close relationship as friends. However he did know that that reason was the cause of the bad blood between the Royal Family and the Ackermans; which is probably the closest clue that they will have until they manage to find something on their next quest that will give them more introspective answers to the truth.
And before he could let him slip away for good, Levi ((possibly for the first time)) gets into more personal questions with Kenny as he asks what kind of relationship he shared with his mother, Kuchel, and in finding out that he was in fact his Uncle follows this with a doleful and lonely question of why he had abandoned him back then if their blood ties ran that deep between them.
While he may not show it since he knew how to keep a good poker face, I bet Kenny felt sadden at the idea of deserting Levi that day, especially since he was his kid sister’s only child and his last living blood relative that he knew of. But being filled with the insecurity that he was not worthy of ever being a parent with the kind of life he led, he thought that what he was doing for him was in his best interest so that he could pursue his own life without being burden with the reputation of scum like him.
Yet despite having abandoned him and claiming to be someone unfit to be a parent, when it comes down to it Kenny didn’t completely desert him to a despairing fate when he could have, and even took it upon himself to at least teach him what he knew to survive this brutal and unforgiving world.
And if that wasn’t already enough, he even leaves to him the serum that he had stolen from Rod as a form of both redemption and an inheritance of his will in the hopes that Levi will be able to create the future that he desires for mankind.
He may have lived all his life thinking he was scum, but Kenny ended up dying a real man in the eyes of his nephew.
Welcome back to the story! So glad so many people are excited for it! More Loki feels this chapter, our poor baby is just hurting so badly ugh. Excited to hear how you all feel about him and Tony’s relationship!

Tony jumped when Thor’s voice boomed across the foyer, but turned with a smile as the Demi-god strode towards him, letting Mjolnir slide from his hands to the floor as he went.
“Anthony, my love.” Thor stopped just a few steps from him, then dropped to one knee and took his hand, pressing a warm kiss to his palm. “You are beautiful, tonight. Gorgeous.”
“I feel like a girl.” Tony complained and Thor smiled before standing and drawing him close.
“No, elskan mín, not a woman. ‘Tis simply different from Midgardian clothes is all.”
“I’m wearing a dress and tights.” Tony said dryly, looking down at the dark blue tunic and wrinkling his nose.
“Just a tunic and leggings.” Thor corrected. “Completely appropriate for the meal.”
“It’s cut down to my navel.” Tony argued, and then blushed when Thor’s eyes dropped to follow the neckline that did in fact travel nearly to Tony’s navel. The silky material was loose enough to see almost all of Tony’s chest, newly flawless skin looking golden against the dark blue.
“Such a cut will guarantee my eyes never leave you tonight.” Thor assured him, his big hand resting low onto Tony’s hip, thumb stroking firmly over his hipbone. “You will have the attention of everyone in the room.”
Thor reached into one of the small pockets on his cape and pulled out a long necklace, smiling into Tony’s eyes before looping it over his neck.
“There. Now you are not showing quite so much skin, if it makes you uncomfortable.” He hesitated, touching the blue stones wrapped in delicate gold on the necklace. “Do you like it? I had it made especially for you for tonight. I would hope you will wear it often.”
“Blue for your eyes. And gold?” Tony questioned and Thor nodded, looking vulnerable and unsure of himself. It was rare look on the God of Thunder and Tony touched his cheek encouragingly. “Why gold, Thor? I don’t usually go for the mob boss jewelry look.”
“The Lightning that moves between us.” Thor murmured. “When we are together. The sparks. They move as gold against your skin. The most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen.”
