Why aren't more people talking about Spartacus?!

I mean you have these gorgeous women

Who are 100% Feminine and 100% Badass!

Naevia cut off her rapists head!

Laeta killed the guy who manipulated her and took advantage of her and branded her as a slave!

Saxa is one of the best damn fighters that the rebels have!

Mira is also badass but with a bow and arrow :)

now whilst the girls armor does seem typically sexualised… 

this is the Guys armour, barely anything! :D So why aren’t more people talking about this?!

So let's talk Spatacus. Now I love Mira and Spartacus and I think Laeta and Spartacus was cute and had potential. But do you think if Spartacus was to go on for another season before the final battle, do you think that Spartacus would have fell for Laeta and give her the love that Mira desperately wanted from him? I hope I make sense.

YASSS!! I LOVE YOU @tays-role-plays !! Heheh!! And talking Spartacus with you gives me life ;)!!! OK SOO you pose SUCH AN INTERESTING question!!! I LOVE IT!! Anndd there are my personal thoughts on it!!! 

I personally believe that Spartacus would have eventually been able to be happy with Laeta! Andd I’m going to go into a bit of detail as to why I believe this!! 

When Mira fell for Spartacus, it can be said she started developing feelings for him in the ludus. This was at a time where Spartacus was still mourning his wife in a way – though setting to rest his past life as he promised Batiatus. HOWEVER, discovering the true cause of her death had opened up those fresh wounds!! He was NOT ready to give himself to another woman! I do believe he deeply cared about Mira, but I also think Mira held expectations of being loved so completely by him, and he was not at an emotional place to give her that!

Furthermore, there was not a huge time lapse between Blood and Sand and Vengeance! I bring this up because I also think its important to note that Spartacus was still very much in a mourning mindset; in an angered one and desperate to avenge Sura. I mean, look how he went after Glaber in the market! I think discovering how she died had reopened those old wounds and brought back the man who was so devoted to his wife, that he could not place another above her, not even Mira! 

Theenn, the whole Ilithyia thing happened! I think Mira was trying to force a choice onto him, and placing pressure on the guy because she wanted him to love her as much as she loved him. I’m not saying its entirely irrational, I think she went into the relationship with this hope, but with the rebellion so fresh, I don’t think Spartacus was able to give in to expectation and meed this standard of affection that Mira wanted and expected. I THINK given more time, he could have. But not in that period of time!! 

NOW, Mira died, and consider the next time lapse between Vengeance and War of the Damned where YEARS went by! Thus, Spartacus was able to come to terms with the situation. Still committed to the war but it was exactly that: a full fledged war. They had an army, they had generals, and he had time to digest the truth about Sura and find less reckless ways to deal with it! He was more rational and calculated (compared to going after Glaber in the middle of the day at the market). 

Bring in Laeta! It definitely wasn’t love at first sight by any means! However, I think they grew to strongly care about each other! I think he saw what she had been through, being stripped of her role as a civilian, branded a slave, and so on! Furthermore, you could tell that Laeta did not treat her slaves poorly which, I think is important to note in regards to her character and personality! So by the time that Laeta had sex with Spartacus, they had a strong understanding with each other. AND, she recognized how much he loved his wife. She did not have those expectations of him, like the ones Mira did at the time, and I think this helped ease Spartacus’ mind a little. That he was not expected to give his whole heart to her, as he had hesitations to be with Laeta physically, after what happened with Mira. 

I also think this lack of pressure brought him closer to her as time went on. Its significant to note, that even Agron recognized how Laeta made Spartacus happy. Sometimes our friends know us best and considering how well he knows Spartacus, I do believe there was truth in this. That Laeta symbolized a potential life of happiness for Spartacus; that the man could find some semblance of it in this life. And Spartacus was willing to do that even, to go beyond the Alps and bring end to the war … until of course everything went to hell!!

NOW, whether Spartacus could have actually given up fighting in the war if he had survived, is debatable. A part of him would have always been tied to it, but I think that if he was to be with someone, a woman, then I could see it as someone with Laeta if things had continued on the path between them that they had been going on in the show!

I HOPE this answer makes sense!! And I’m SOOO SORRY for the ramble!! HAHA! I just have a LOOT of thoughts when it comes to this brilliant show and REALLY enjoy talking about it with peeps ;)!! HIT ME UP WITH ANY MORE QUESTIONS!!! THANK YOU FOR THIS ONE!! YOU DA BEST!!! <3

anonymous asked:

favorite female relationship with Agron?

OK ANON SOOO I am going to try to keep this as short as possible!! Going to outline 3 relationships that Agron has with a female character that I really love!

AGRON/LAETA: I think Laeta’s interactions with Agron are one of the most significant ones with a rebel apart from of course Spartacus. It is clear he doesn’t like her because she’s Roman, however, his loyalty to Spartacus trumps his hatred for Romans. I think she encompasses that. You can see in their interactions she has a soft spoken nature toward him; its like she wants to talk to him, thank him, dare I say get to know him. But Aggie with his already distrust of others, just shuts her down and doesn’t try to make niceties. That is in the first round where he was protecting her in Sineussa. 

The second big moment between them was when he helped her with the tent. He of course didn’t have to do that, and she even teased him for it, but I think they were starting to build some rapport. Agron knew that she made Spartacus happy and wanted to protect her and help her for that reason. Laeta was grateful toward him, and I think his opinion of her started to soften. It was also at this moment that Agron recognized what he had to do for Nasir. Seeing that she could make Spartacus happy, I feel that Agron felt he couldn’t make Nasir happy by having him in this war. He wanted him to live a life, just like Spartacus intended to with someone he cared about. And, at this point, perhaps Agron believed Nasir could eventually find that with Castus. 

I headcanon that Agron protected Laeta (and Sibyl) at the end of the series when they all walked off into the sunset. He protected these two women to honor his fallen brothers (Laeta for Spartacus and Sibyl for Gannicus). I imagine that he helped take care of them, kept them close, made sure they were settled, and so on. To me, Agron and Laeta’s relationship is just SO interesting and has a LOT of potential to be explored!! (PLUG: SOMEONE PLEASE MAKE A LAETA RP ACCOUNT!!! I will love you forever!!) 

AGRON/MIRA: So this is another woman who Spartacus deeply cared for but unlike Laeta, I don’t think that’s what bonded her and Agron. Now I will say I have a natural bias towards this relationship because of Dan and Katrina’s off screen close friendship, so juuust gonna throw that out there. But I still think that they’re close. Early in Vengeance, you could see the divide among the rebels: her and Agron stood on one side with the others while the Gauls stood on the opposite side. I think Agron and Mira had similar mindsets in terms of feeling the divided loyalty among them. 

I also love the scene where Saxa insulted Mira and Agron pointed a finger at her in warning. You could see him defending Mira, even if she may not understand what was said, and he did that out of his friendship for her; otherwise there was really no reason to warn Saxa to stop, or to do anything of the like in response to her remark against Mira. But Agron sees her as a friend, and when he is loyal to someone, he is loyal

And then of course we have that adorable improvised scene with Mira, Agron and Nasir. She relieves them of charge and he expresses his gratitude, gently touching her shoulder. Agron doesn’t really take a soft tone with just anyone, and I mean, even though he was aroused at the moment, I think it was telling of their relationship. I think he developed a strong respect for her because she was learning to fight, learning to be a warrior. And they could bond with that, and their strong loyalty to Spartacus. 

AGRON/SAXA: I wish we got to see more interactions between them, but from what we did see, I LOVED! I really like that she was among the German slaves that were freed from the ship. I love the teasing nature that Agron and her have, like when she asked about Gannicus and Agron was like “I thought you were with Nemetes?” Lets be real, Agron doesn’t give a shift who someone is having sex with, but I think it just spoke to the teasing dynamic that they had with each other. 

And as the above mentioned scene, he does give warning to Saxa for her comment, where she just shoves his hand away. I think its hilarious, and they almost seem like siblings to me. I also LOVE the fight scenes they have, particularly when they are in Sinuessa and Agron, Saxa and Donar are fighting against Ceasar and the other Romans. OT3 MUCH?!?!?

I think with Aggie and his relationship with women, he naturally connects more to ones who are warriors. He doesn’t have the same rapport with characters who are not warriors, and I think that’s why it took more time for him to connect with characters like Laeta. I think he and Naevia would have been close had she not been with Crixus, because of Agron’s dislike toward him. But even still, I really like the interactions he does have with Naevia, mostly in Vengeance. In War of the Damned, things obviously took a turn. 

But again, Agron’s ability to connect with a person, is mostly based on the fact that they are a warrior, whether they’re male and female. Because that is what Agron is most familiar with: a warrior. It’s who he is and who he has been for his entire life; it’s what bonds him with others. Which is exactly why I love his relationship with Laeta especially; because its just so different. And why I would also LOVE to explore the potential dynamic between him and Sibyl.

I could honestly go on and on and on, but I think I should stop there! Hahah!!! Sorry for the ramble!! I hope that answered your question!!
