What's your top 3 bellarke scenes so far in all the show?
You know….when I first saw this, I thought it might be impossible. But actually….I think if I cheat slightly by having a top 4, I can do this pretty speedily. And, to give you an example of how much this list does NOT encapsulate all that I love about Bellarke, the 2x05 hug ain’t even on there!!!!! 3x02 ain’t even on there!!!! The List ain’t even on there!!!!!!!!!!!!
But before we get to my actual top 4, I have to mention two scenes that didn’t quite make the cut but are super duper close and might sneak in if you asked me on a different day.
HONORARY MENTION ONE: 1x08 Day Trip - Bellarke, sitting by a tree…
ICONIC. I know, I know…how is it not top 3? Well, the simple explanation is that THIS SHIP IS JUST TOO DAMN GOOD.
BUT this scene is essential to everything about Bellarke. The bond they formed in the moment carries through every moment since. There’s a reason that Bob (literally always) throws back ot it. It’s special.
HONORARY MENTION TWO: 2x16 Blood Must Have Blood Pt. II - Knock Knock Knockin’
This scene destroyed me. We’d had so little Bellarke in 2B, we’d just seen them reunited and so much better for it, the music, the length of the scene and how it built, and then the throwback to 1x08, and the hug and the kiss and ughhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh I’m weeping again.
In terms of BIG scenes between Bellarke this was the winner up until a sneaky sneak episode stole its crown…
4. 2x15 Perverse Instantiation Pt. I - Start. With. Bellamy. Blake.
I know, I know. It was a small moment. But good lord, it packs a punch. More than any other scene (so far) I think this moment reveals just how essential Bellamy is to Clarke. ALIEs first instinct is to use him to break Clarke, over her own mother. She only resorts to using Abby when Bellamy is no longer available.
Can we stop and think about that for a second?
AND NOW AHHHHHHHH. Fucking hell. That shit is just….HOW CAN ANYONE DOUBT OR DENY?
And then you add the ACTING and the editing as we fade from Clarke into Bellamy resolving to climb that tower to save her?
Just fuck me up.
3. 1x03 Earth Kills - My Beginning
I was more than ready to ship Bellake in 1x02 to be honest, but it was 1x03 when I fell deep (quite early in comparison to many, I think?). When Clarke steps in to kill Atom, and Bellamy watches her become his murder princess? I die over it every time.
This scene established something very important for me, and that was that Bellarke were not like other ships. The fact that we had Bellamy showing softness, while Clarke was steel. The chemistry. The way he watched her and you could just feel him re evaluating her.
There are so many beats in S1 that establish a new stage in their relationship. This was the first BIG one IMO. And it lead to ‘get Clarke whatever she needs’ which is basically Bellamy’s life mantra.
2. 2x16 Blood Must Have Blood Pt II - TOGETHER
Again, a short scene but HOLY COW it’s so important.
It’s important in the moment because it’s just so huge and so beautiful, and the way it is shot is so perfect. But it’s also huge for the entirety of their relationship. It reflects where they have come from, and it informs what they have become.
This moment has been called back to in so many ways. Heartbreak in 3x05, reconciliation in 3x13, quietly but HUGELY in 3x16, and again in S4.
Part of the beauty of Bellarke is in themes that carry throughout seasons. Together is iconic at this point.
1. 3x05 Hakeldama - IF YOU THOUGHT I WOULD PICK ANYTHING ELSE YOU DO NOT KNOW ME AT ALL
This scene is a masterpiece. Every single inch of it. The writing was SPOT ON. Everything each of them said was so on point I thought it had been pulled from my brain. The acting was devastating. It was given SO MUCH TIME.
Honestly, I’ve spoken about this scene so much and also I need to dash. So why don’t we all just die over my forever favourite angst vid in solidarity.
2. “I know it’s 3 in the morning, but I can’t find my cat”
title: Cat got your tongue
a/n: sweet drabble about travis, his cute neighbor katelyn and a pesky cat Travis’s
sitting for his roommate while his roomie is outta town.
warning(s): runnaway pets!!!
Typically, having the apartment to himself should’ve been
something he looked forward to. He’d remember the high school years spent
celebrating long weekends where his father simply left him with a sum of money
and a fair warning not to break anything in the house. But Travis suppose when
you liked the people that shared your living space with, a weekend alone was
more so boredom until he got dressed up and got out.
I'm a little upset that we barely saw the other members in the trailer :(
Honestly, same. I actually had trouble appreciating the trailer as much the first time through because from about 2 minutes in, and I couldn’t stop wondering where the other members were. I kept checking the time left every couple of seconds and wondering why they hadn’t shown up yet! And even when they did show up, you can only see them for a second, and Jaebum’s the only other one who really gets a close up…
However, Jinyoung did an AMAZING job with his acting in the trailer film, and I’m really proud of him and pleased that he got to show off his acting talent! His ability to convey so much emotion with just his eyes and little shifts of expression is breathtaking… especially the face he had when watching his members playing!!
Since I know that the story being told since Departure was always about Jinyoung anyway, I’m trying not to feel too disappointed that he’s really the only one in the trailer. Hopefully we’ll get more of the story shown in the music video (or in the individual member releases??) and we’ll get to see a lot more of the rest of GOT7!!! Because I need my beautiful Youngjae fix please and thank you.
