can we talk about this scene

can we just–can we please talk about the chair scene for a moment? because it’s so incredibly important to me. 

by the ‘chair scene’ I mean the page(s) in the voltron comics where we see Allura alone in the castle and she is riding around the halls in a floating chair.

and it’s important to me because I love Allura and I want to see her happy and she was so clearly having fun (boy oh boy I can’t wait to hear that laugh get voiced!) but also because it’s really speaks to her character

Most of the time we see Allura she is serious, the rare moments when she loses her composure are usually out of anger or frustration. The reason so much of the fandom mistakes her for an adult is because she acts like one. Because Allura is the princess of Altea; and Altea is the planet that created the lions and Voltron. 

Her planet may be dead but Allura feels the responsibility of what happened to the universe in her absence because she feels it was on her to stop it. To carry on her father’s legacy by destroying Zarkon, she admits as much in season 2; but there are hints before that, like when she insisted on stopping for Nyma and Rolo’s distress call or when she refused to give up on the Balmerans. Or the multiple times she over extends herself for the sake of others.

Allura has the weight of the entire universe on her shoulders, on top of all the loss she’s faced. The only time where she lets herself genuinely just relax and be a goofy teenager is when she’s alone. (We see this a bit in Space Mall too, where Allura spends the day playing with the mice.) As soon as the paladins call her in the comics, Allura de-musses her hair and acts the part of a princess again.

I’m hoping Allura’s character arc heads in a direction where she realizes that all of this isn’t her fault or responsibility; that she’s just one person and she doesn’t have to burden herself like she does.

that pre baseball scene from 3x14 where jane and co don’t want to have maura and her team playing with them baseball and both of them get called and maura says “we’re not done here” and jane just replies with “okay” and her face when maura walks away

what i want to say is that this scene would have been even more funnier if they were a couple. brickering couple rizzles. 

“uh.”

“shit. way to go rizzoli.”

“i guess this means a week without sex.”

anyway, can we talk about a movie again?

lostmermaidponyo  asked:

Hey! Ever since I saw batb I've searched for someone that might write a fic about this and was wondering if you might? The scene in the battle where lefou and mrs Potts just casually talking about how he is to good for Gaston made me want a fic of lefou, Mrs potts, belle and plumette sitting around gossiping and then lumiere and the girls trying to set him up with Stanley because cute and funny

f u c k

“no no no, keep sitting! i have legs. i can do this.”

“we all have legs now, dearie.” But mrs. potts shows no desire to move, so belle gets up and comes back with the tall, icy glasses. she isn’t amazing at making tea, but she puts together unusual, tasty combinations to make up for it: a brush of spearmint in plumette’s glass, a slice of tangerine on lefou’s, chopped cucumbers for mrs. potts. belle stirs her glass and sits, and they all put their feet up on the railing of the balcony, and they all sit in judgement upon the world.

lefou sips his tea and listens while plumette goes on about the newest styles (“we missed so much!! the skirt shape is entirely different. could the witch not send us a fashion magazine or two through the curse”), and mrs. potts points to the changes in the garden and the planting of new blooms, and belle laughs and tells them stories of the village. and lefou is quiet: nodding with the stories, but still a little shy here, among these women. so long he’s been used to bolstering up the ego of a braggart—and it is so odd to be welcomed for himself, here, and not because he echoes another man. And to have his words rest gently, and not incite a hero to peace or pull back a monster from violence: here, words don’t have to be dealt out carefully, like coins or cards. they can drift away like feathers: light, and meaningless, and happy to the touch.

in the upper reaches of the palace, lumiere treats words differently. they needn’t be weapons—they have never been weapons, for lumiere—but he uses them to cajole and encourage, like little candles that lead the way through a dark wood.

“have you thought of taking the hem up, a little? just a little. show off some ankle.” beside him, garderobe glares. the little candle-man always has opinions on her artistry. (the little candle-man is just as tall as she is, now, but she never remembers this.)

“isn’t that a bit…cheeky?” stanley is shy, and turns this way and that to judge the effect. the dress is soft, hued dark purple and bright blue like a summer flower.

“so?! a little cheek is a good thing. we put kisses on bright cheeks,” says lumiere. he’s already on the floor, putting the pins in, adjusting bows and laces. garderobe huffs and rolls her eyes and hands him scissors. she smiles up at stanley; the great opera singer loves the little village boy, though no one knows why or how.

“kisses?” stanley blushes like a hothouse flower.

“kisses on cheeks, or other places,” says lumiere, and garderobe laughs, full and rich, and stanley has run away before they’ve stopped, dragging the half-done dress behind him. one side is pinned and hemmed almost to his knees; the other drags along the floor, like a lopsided train. he is halfway across the palace before he stops and breathes and lets the skirt circle out around him.

a quiet gasp, from across the room, and stanley whips around. the glass of iced tea hits the floor and shatters. lefou had just come in to take a breath: he was so overwhelmed with joy, and it was such a foreign feeling, that he had to leave the ladies and come and hold his hands against the cold marble walls, and talk himself down from panic, and use his words as small sharp swords to prick him back into quiet and smiles. and he had almost done it—almost slid back into the usual feeling, the normal one, where he is ignored and a little unhappy and he doesn’t need to worry because this is how he always felt around Gaston—when he looked and saw the most beautiful person run across the room, blue and purple trailing behind, and he forgot all about everything because this was a fairytale, right here and now.

“the dress isn’t finished! don’t look,” says stanley, and he is embarrassed and shy, and tries to fix the skirt.

“no! no, it’s perfect.” lefou feels a smile sneak across his face. stanley looks beautiful.

“even though….i mean….is it a little cheeky?” stanley is blushing hard, all across his cheeks, and lefou can’t even keep up with how he feels because he’s so aghast at how his old friend looks.

“well. cheeky is as cheeky does. you look…wow.” His words wander away. for a second, lefou doesn’t worry about being the second-in-command, the last half of Le Duo; now he’s the prince in the fairytale, and stanley twirls in his dress, and something gentle sifts through the air.

on the balcony, the ladies giggle and peep through the curtains. and in the upper windows, lumiere and garderobe share a quiet high-five.

anonymous asked:

I can't help but imagine a hug between Chari and Nina (or more...). If she transform again, it's means that SOMETHING happened (like a physic contact) I AM IN NEED FOR CHARNINA

Haha same here. I mean we’re in the middle of the war and I can’t stop thinking about that but there are a lot of possibilities related to the following screenshots:

I have my own interpretation of this scene but I didn’t wanted to talk about it because I really wanted to watch it instead of overthink it. *coughs* 

At my eyes it doesn’t look as a hug or any kind of physical touch, it seems like she’s looking at someone (pic one) and then looking away (pic two) which gives way to the last one (pic three), in which she’s concluding about a topic.

So, she’s probably talking to someone who can easily be Charioce himself or another character if you want to think in that way, but the main topic it’s the same in both cases: She’s talking about Charioce

And of course you can watch it by yourself right here, specifically around the minute 1:05. And then the last thing we see is this:

Exactly, it seems to be a “wink” to a transformation Nina has not made yet.

MAKE YOUR BETS!

Because this, right here? Needs to be talked about. Everything about this scene, every shot, every cut, speaks volumes.

From the way Sana worms her way past the people at the party to enter the bathroom, and as soon as the door shuts, the music stops. Because from here, her preparation for Salah has begun. She’s in a whole different mindset from here on out.

She performs the Wudhu (ablution), which is needed to done, before reading the Salah. From her actions, you can see her performing the same actions of washing her hands, her face, gargling etc, 3 times, because that is how the Wudhu is performed. This isn’t the complete Wudhu, there’s more bits to it, but you can get the rough idea.

Then, she squeezes her way past people, being extremely cautious that nothing and no one touches her, because now that she is in a clean state of performing Salah, even the slightest bit of uncleanliness touching her, like alcohol, etc, would mean she would have to do her Wudhu again.

After she enters the room, she takes her phone out, and like most Muslims, she will have a compass app on her phone, that, when she uses, will inform her which direction the Qiblah (the Ka’abah in Makkah) is in, since it is the direction we face to pray our Salah in.

Once she finds it, she places the mat into position, and shuts her eyes. This is the final bit of worldly contact she will have, before she has to cut herself off, and go into direct, one to one communication with Allah. Her closing her eyes? That is her focusing, or rather, switching her focus, from worldly, to Allah, and Allah only.

She raises her hands, and that’s the sign that she is now in Salah, reading Salah. And notice the way we can HEAR Sana pray. That’s something I have NEVER seen happen on TV, EVER before, where we can HEAR the person pray. And it’s just silence. Pure silence. Nothing but Sana in direct communication with Allah, talking to Allah, praising Allah, asking Allah to guide her.

And the final part, where she goes down into Sujood, where she places her head on the floor? That is the ULTIMATE position of worship. That position signifies just how much we need our Allah, how we’re literally, on the floor, in worship of him, prostrating, needing his assistance, his guidance. 

Talk about this scene. Talk about it. Because this? Is HUGE.

THIS IS ONE OF THE MOST BEAUTIFUL DEAN AND CAS SCENES IN SPN HISTORY.

Here we have Dean and Cas being open about their feelings. Cas has been away, and Dean’s been worried. Cas comes back, and Dean lashes out at him.

For most of their relationship, they never talk about it. Dean just assumes that Cas just wants to get away from him because he thinks Cas has more important things to do than spend time with him. Cas, on the other hand, always thinks that the only way he can be acceptable to Dean is if he isn’t a burden, if he delivers what is required of him, and if he functions properly as a savior and protector. Neither of them know the truth. Dean doesn’t know that Cas would want nothing more than to stay with him, that the reason why Cas is away all the time is so he could keep him safe. Cas doesn’t know that Dean just wants him to stay and keep him company, to fight alongside him, and to always be within reach because he worries about him all the time. They care about each other so much, but they’ve always iced each other out when push came to shove because they’ve always had trouble communicating it properly–until now.

Dean gave Cas a mixtape of his Top 13 Zepp traxx–Dean’s extended an olive branch to Cas to let him know that he matters so much to him that he wants him to share his taste in music and know the words to his favorite songs–that maybe they don’t always say the right things to each other, but maybe the gesture would show him how much he means to him.

And here we see Cas returning the mixtape Dean gave him after spending a significant time apart. He uses this as an olive branch to get Dean to talk to him–to let him know that he listened to it while he was away because he cares about him–that maybe this gesture would be capable of bridging the distance between them. But Dean gives it back to Cas and reinforces that the tape is his because he gifted it to him, and Cas takes it back. They tell each other everything.

Dean tells Cas that he’s angry because he’s worried, and Cas tells Dean that all he wants to do is redeem himself to Dean. They’re communicating their feelings. They know each other more wholly. They understand each other.

And it’s really amazing to see how far they’ve come now that they’ve both realized that they’re so much better when they’re together.

📢LISTEN 📢 UP📢 ARMYS📢 HERE ARE 23 UNDERRATED  RAP MONSTER TRACKS THAT YOU SHOULD ABSOLUTELY CHECK OUT

*there are way more namjoon tracks but this list was getting too long* *just peep his mixtape and soundcloud*

1. Rap Monster by Rap Monster

This is Namjoon’s take on “look at me now” by Chris Brown and a.k.a the first ever song to be represented by Bangtan Sonyeondan as it was the first ever track on BTS’s official soundcloud.

This is an introduction to Rap Monster as an artist and a lit track. This shit was a bop!


2. Too much by Rap Monster

This song is extremely meaningful and Namjoon’s voice sounds breathtaking. This was Namjoon’s reflection of the B-free incident. He mentions how he shouldn’t take B-free’s hate to his heart and not to over think criticism. In the beginning he sounds really hurt but omg towards the end he is going hard, and it gives me old school rap vibes.

3. Unpack your bags by Rap Monster

This song is a huge middle finger to the underground rap community who looks down on idol rappers. This was a collab with the show 4 things where he mentions how hard it was him to pursue hip hop. He mentioned 4 struggles he faced in the industry. Check out the episode, the show also shows how he interacts with his producers and Bang PDnim and this was where the really famous “ Solo, or Bangtan” moment was born. We really got to know Namjoon as an artist personally and his teenage days.This is complimented with a really cute music video.

4. P.D.D (Please Don’t Die) by Rap Monster

This is a track where he collabed with Warren G  prior to his mixtape in L.A and this gives me chills because of that prominent West Coast feel. Check out the MV and the naver behind the scenes.

5. Something by Rap Monster (a.k.a my all time favourite song I don’t know why tbh)

HOLY SHIT THIS SONG TAKES ME WAY BACK! I feel as if nowadays the producers really autotune Namjoon’s singing voice and make it really shaky but hear you can prominently really hear his singing skills and It is such a sexy love song. It really gives your romantic feels and reflects on a sad teenage love story.

6. Where u At by Rap Monster


THIS IS SUCH A MEANINGFUL SONG. 

Here we have high school Namjoon talking about how school has gotten the best of him. In a culture where education and status are everything, he talks about letting his parents down and confessing to his relatives about his future in Hip-Hop. Its an extremely relatable track where you think about where you want to head in the future.

7. Favourite Girl by Rap Monster

This is such a cute fuckboy song omg Namjoon’s voice is so cute in this. Young love amirite.

But I have a secret meme with this song. In 6th grade I accidentally blasted this and my teacher started singing along to it since the chorus is in english and ever since my friends have been taunting me with this song.

8. Monterlude by Rap Monster

The instrumental to this was included in the Skool Luv Affair album. This is in english and this is such a cute love song. Namjoon would spoil his girlfriend omg.

9. Promethus by Yankie feat Rap Monster

Namjoon teamed up with some popular K-rappers and his verse in this made my pussy drop BUT EVERYONE IN THIS SONG DID SO AMAZING THIS IS SUCH A TURNT SONG I WAS JAMMING TOO HARD

This song is based off of the seven sins and Namjoon plays lust..ofc.

He uses some sick korean wordplay.


10. Bucku Bucku by MFBTY feat Rap Monster

MFBTY are already korean hip hop legends and the fact that such “old” and wise rappers decided to have Namjoon feature is an honor. 

He also had a little role in another one of their mvs here

11.   PRIMARY (프라이머리) - U (Feat. Kwon Jin Ah 권진아, Rap Monster 랩

This song is really relaxing and I love Primary’s beats and Kwon Jin Ah’s soothing voice, But Namjoon’s soothing rap was so sexy. It was just so hot omg.

12. Awakening by Rap Monster from his mixtape

This song was from his mixtape which you absolutely need to check out and I suggest you see his other music videos such as the legendary Do You  and Joke.

This song was extremely powerful and eye opening. Just ready the lyrics and you will know why.

“In  the moment of my failure
will someone hold my hand?
in the moment when I come down from the stage
will that person be next to me?
just tell me that I can survive
in this cold world, just feel my vibe
every night inside me I quietly fight with myself
my heart pounds, my colleagues stab me in the back
while saying that I became a moron after joining a company
yeah fuck you I’m an idol, yeah yeah I’m an idol
at one time I hated it but now I love to get that title”

13. I believe by Rap Monster

Extremely uplifting and it brings you a huge amount of self-confidence, its a self-loving song and its a self reminder to always believe in yourself no matter how much you fall. Also has a little appearance from Jimin.

14. God Rap By Rap Monster

This song talks about Namjoon being an athiest but also has a message for believers. It talks about controlling your own life and to be your own idol. It says how you have the power of god in you and how you are extraordinary.

15. Throw Away by Rap Monster

HOLY CRAP THIS SONG IS EXTREMELY LIT
THIS IS SUCH A BOP
OMG THIS ALWAYS HAS ME JUMPING 
CHECK OUT THE LIVE TOO

“got an automatic dick”

16. Rush by Rap Monster feat Krizz Kaliko also from his mixtape

Funny story this is how they got together and created this lit korean meets american rap track.

Namjoon goes really hard in this, check it out!

17. Drifting by Rap Monster also from his Mixtape

This song has a theme that goes with “Reflection” and “Always”, He says how his thoughts are drifting and how feels lost (almost like the track lost in wings). Its put you in a trance where you, yourself starts to think about where you are in life and what purpose you have. 

18. Life by Rap Monster from his mixtape

This song got me tripping because Namjoon is a lyrical genius. The amount of questions this song got me saying is insane. Just read.

“ the little me inside myself was always lonely
why is there no opposite word of loneliness?
could it be because people, until they die, have no moments of not being lonely?
it’s necessary to seek a moment to be alone
yeah that’s a life
we live inside danger
through the reward that makes us able to see this beautiful world “


were we born to die, were we born to live
are we living to die, or are we dying to live
the nametag with my name on it, is that my life?
or is it death

who knows…

life, fall in love
life receives injuries from us and
is lonely because of the wind and
we wanna be right
but always wrong
were we born to be wrong?
is life something like that?
(in the end, for our whole lives we don’t know what tomorrow will be)”

19. Monster by Rap Monster from his mixtape

“R TO THE M IMMA MOTHERFUCKING MONSTER”


20. Joke. (you should probably know this)

I really did’nt want to include this because his 2 most famous tracks are Do you and Joke and I wanted to keep this list to the underrated but tbvh I was really surprised when I figured out that people don’t know this track.

HONESTLY IF YOU TELL ME NAMJOON DOESNT HAVE RAP FLOW OR CANT RAP FAST WATCH THIS FUCKING VIDEO>

In this track he said how he is mocking rappers who only have good flow but no sense of meaningful lyrics. 

The lyrics in this song make no sense but the rap flow is too damn good. WHEN WATCHING THIS YOU WILL BE LIKE HONEY PLEASE BREATHE. HE RAPS SO FAST.

PLEASE LISTEN TO THIS MASTERPIECE> HE GOES SO HARD HE TRUELY IS A MONSTER

21. DO YOU BY RAP MONSTER ( (you should also probably know this)

In this track he talks about how at a young age society tells us what to be, how to look, what to wear, how to behave. He says fuck whatever they say and just do you.

22. Fantastic by Rap Monster (from fantastic four)

I heard that fantastic four was shit but Namjoon got a chance to do a song for a movie which is a big deal for bangtan so WHOO


23. Illest Bitch

A really cute confession from Namjoon going through Puberty

Originally posted by ksjknj

Can we just talk about how fucking great the writing on this show is?

Okay, this one requires a little explaination.

At this point in the series, we’ve seen people shrug off injuries like they were nothing. Steven and the Gems (especially the Gems) tank a HECK load of hits. Just watch Pearl v Sugilite (Coach Steven), Pearlbot v Peribot (Back to the Barn), the Gems v the waterclones (Ocean Gem), Garnet v Jasper (Jailbreak), Stevonnie v Jasper (Crack the Whip), or any other fight scene you can think of. 

Now, the Off Colors (+ Lars and Steven) v Robonoids isn’t even that impressive of a fight. It’s fucking tense, sure, but there’s mostly just a whole lotta hiding. 

Until this moment.

Lars is terrified, but he gathers his courage and attacks one of the robonoids head-on. He leaps on top of it, clinging onto it for dear life as it tries to throw him off.

Then we get a bunch of this fuckery.

And HERE, in THIS exact moment, is where things go south. 

But the thing is, we don’t realise it yet. We as viewers are so absorbed in cheering for Lars, we don’t even THINK about the consequences this could have for him.

Now, another thing about Steven Universe is that things explode. And when they do, they explode impressively and they explode beautifully.

(from Laser Light Cannon)

(from Super Watermelon Island)

(from Serious Steven)

So when comparing those shots to this shot of the Robonoid exploding…

…this explosion is extremely underwhelming. 

Combined with the fact that we’ve never seen a character get seriously hurt in explosions before, we don’t see this as a threat. We are not worried in this moment because Lars just beat this fucker! We are relieved, we are happy, we are ready to start celebrating. Meaning that seeing this…

…over the sound of a flatline…

…is jarring as all hell, because it immediately tells us celebrating viewers that something is WRONG.

And Steven knows it.

The reaction of the Off Colors here immediately becomes dissonant and strange. After all, these gems don’t know about human deaths. Lars hasn’t poofed, so he’s fine…

…right?

no.

no he’s not.

he is not fine.

he’s dead.

And that’s the kicker. 

Steven Universe has been running for four seasons, and NOBODY HAS EVER DIED ON SCREEN BEFORE NOW!

We aren’t expecting it! We have gotten so used to death not being a real threat in this show because surely the Crewniverse wouldn’t dare kill off a main character that we’ve stopped factoring it in as something that could happen. 

Even the Off Colors are realizing it now. Even Paddy realizes it.

One of Steven’s best friends just died. For real. On screen. In a fight we would have written off as underwhelming if not for this moment.

What the fuck, Rebecca.

somebody’s probably talked about this screencap already but i’m????? jesus christ???????????

this is the exact expression i wear when i’m reading through someone’s bullshit. here victor’s coming from the mindset yuri remembers the banquet perfectly, so i can almost hear him thinking “alright, your parents and sister are gone. you can come out now.”

it’s worth mentioning this was also the first time he and yuri were alone together after the hot springs scene, where victor put up some sort of peacock act. emphasis on the cock. 

and it wasn’t the only act he put up that night. 

when nothing happens when they’re alone, victor decides to probe the “real” yuri out by lowering his voice and being flirty and touching him, which just pushes him farther away.

next time we see him, he’s knocking on yuri’s door, talking about having a “slumber party” in a silly manner. that doesn’t work either, so he goes back to his room and cries until he falls asleep.

i’m?????????????????????????????????????????????????

can you fucking believe victor put up not one, two, but THREE different fronts on the same night? all of which might be roles he’s used to playing very well, but are still not him? he tried to get through to yuri by being everything, everything but himself, and nothing worked, because it wasn’t supposed to. because yuri wouldn’t want a front, he’d want him.

people are always talking about how victor’s character changed A LOT after the beach scene in ep. 4. some go as far as saying the change was a conscious choice by the writers because his character was so “unlikeable”. no wonder yall think that? prior to ep. 4, we’d never fucking met victor? we literally didn’t know who he was? because he was hiding even from us?

holy christ thank you @yuri for telling my son to just be himself he URGENTLY needed it

okay can we just talk about this scene here

JUST THIS ONE FUCKING SCREENSHOT THERE IS SO MUCH HAPPENING. SO MUCH HAPPENING IN ONE PICTURE. OKAY LET’S BREAK IT DOWN

YURIO IS SO ANGRY HERE. SO ANGRY AND SO DISHEVELED. IS HE ANGRY THAT HE IS DISHEVELED. IS HE ANGRY THAT YUURI IS GRINDIN ALL OVER VIKTOR’S ASS RIGHT IN FRONT OF HIM N IT’S GROSS FOR OUR SMOL CHILD TO SEE. IS HE ANGRY BECAUSE VIKTOR MADE HIM THAT PROMISE AND NO DRUNK ASS KATSUDON IS GONNA TAKE THAT AWAY FROM HIM, ESP WITH A TIE AROUND HIS HEAD AND PANTS LONG GONE

CHRIS IS LIKE THE EXACT OPPOSITE??? like he can’t be disheveled bc he got absolutely no clothes on, none at all. aND HE IS FUCKING HAPPY. AND PROBABLY INTRIGUED BY THIS SKATER WHO IS APPARENTLY BOMB AT POLE DANCING. ((also lookit that blush chris probably came all over the pole like srsly chris why u gotta make everything all slippery)) but like. look at that smile. those lips making the o face like ‘oooo dis boi he gooood’ chris u are too sexual for your life

AND HERE IS OUR POOR, PURE, SWEET KATSUDON FATALE who is apparently now more noodle than katsudon hE BE ROLLING AND GRINDING HIMSELF ALL OVER VIKTORS ASS (im kidding that’s viktor’s crotch, u do u yuuri) and honestly can we get yuuri drunk in every party just so we can see Noodle!Yuuri and Angry-and-Disheveled!Yurio please PLEASE

and finally we have the most normal expression of all, the expression of the living legend five-time world champion skater viktor nikiforov who is also coincidentally being climbed like a coconut tree right this moment. HOW IS HE SO CALM. IT’S LIKE HE’S USED TO THIS HAPPENING, IT JUST SO HAPPENS THAT THE GUY DOING IT THIS TIME IS ACTUALLY RLY CUTE????? HE’S NOT FREAKING OUT NOPE NOT AT ALL. VITYA’S EXPRESSION IS LITERALLY JUST LIKE “o hello there may i help u” 

but also consider this is right after their dance off so maybe more like “o hello there may we get married right now if ur not too busy grindin on me”

and, well, to wrap this up. we have these poor, innocent bystanders

In summary, they didn’t ask for this but we totally did

i think i got carried away but srsly guys this goddamn screenshot idk i’m sure there are a ton more scenes like this but drunk!yuuri causes the best incidents

Kurt, what if it’s only a matter of time before I become like that?

The character motivations in this scene can basically be summed up as;

Jack: We need to talk about our feelings, Gabe.
Gabe: Okay let me tell you about how emotionally devastating the thought of losing you is to me, and how much it destroyed me when you almost died that one time.
JACK: Woah now lighten up, I’m trying to hook up with you.

/ 1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 / 6 / 7 / 8 / 9 / 10 / 11 / 12 / 13 / 14 / 15 / 16 / 17 / 18 / 19 / 20 / 21 / 22 / 23 / 24 / 25 / 26 / 27 / 28 / 29 / 30 / 31 / 32 / 33 / 34 / 35 / 36 / 37 / 38 / 39 /

Okay this may seem like a minor scene but can we talk about when Sana was talking to her mom, and at the end of the call she says “I trust you” - this is so important. It’s been perpetuated that Muslim parents are strict and force their children to do things they don’t want - but here you see that that’s not the case. Sana told her mom that she’s going to a party and her mom in response let’s her know that she trusts her and doesn’t force her to come meet her at the mosque. I’m so tired of parents of colour being depicted as villians who don’t want their children’s happiness - not all parents are like that. There are those, like Sana’s parents, that are respectful of their children’s wishes, negotiates with them in a mature and understanding way, and just wants them to be happy. This is important. 

Can we talk about about that last Sanvers scene a little bit more?  Because yes we talked about the sexual tension and Oh! My! God! it is out of this world. But can we talk about how respectful Maggie is ?

Let me explain :

Maggie is clearly  restraining herself from touching Alex (arm crossed…). Her body language screams her will to touch the woman she loves and almost lost. So why aren’t they all over each other already you might ask?

Well, they are at Alex’s work. Alex might be out to the people close to her, but probably not to the whole DEO? Why would they know about her relationship?  

And I get it, I totally get it. We’ve all wonder whether or not to be out in our place of work. We’ve all been scared of the consequences, the judgments, the changes… It is obviously not Maggie’s decision to make. So she waits. She waits for Alex to be ready. She waits for her to do the first move.

And Alex did the first move. And not just a simple move, she puts her arm around Maggie clearly and proudly showing her love.

So yes, this scene is shining in sexual tension, but the respect, the wait for Alex’s consent that Maggie have in this scene is what’s getting me emotional.

I think this scene mark a new step in their relationship. Let’s remember that outside of the missions, we’ve only seen them at Alex’s or at the alien bar (aka their “safe space”) but we never really saw them in public. And for the first time at the DEO, on those stairs, a place that everyone in the DEO can see, Alex comes out and show to her whole world that Maggie Sawyer is hers.

So yes we can complain about how short and rushed the Sanvers scenes are, but the evolution of their relationship is so slow, intense and healthy, it is giving me life.

The parallel to end all parallels

Okay guys, listen up, because I’m about to fuck you up with some knowledge.

So we all know under Dabb’s reign, we’ve seen a multitude of parallels. Season 12 has been chock-full of callbacks from earlier seasons: characters, scenes, props, etc. We saw it with the colt, with Mary’s return, Bobby’s return, “[insert parent name here] went on a hunting trip, and [they] haven’t been home in a few days”. We’ve had Dean and Cas paralleled with Sam and Eileen, Dean and Cas paralleled with Cain and Colette, Dean referred to as Cas’s “human weakness” by Ishim…I mean really, at this point they’re endless. I could make hundreds of posts about the parallels, particularly in regard to Dean and Cas, but I won’t because frankly, there are better meta writers than me on the tumblrverse and they’ve already been done to death.

see @tinkdw and @ibelieveinthelittletreetopper, seriously those guys’ blogs have some seriously incredible information, metas, and I thoroughly enjoy reading literally everything they have to say.

What I want to talk about is Cas’s last scene in the finale. Here we see Cas enter the alternate universe, despite Sam and Dean already being there and having a plan for locking in Lucifer, and stabbing Lucifer, right before Cas’s death scene.

So I’ve seen a lot of people complaining about this scene and how Cas’s death was completely unnecessary and avoidable. That it was used strictly for the “man pain” we hear so much about, so we can watch the boys once again mourn the death of one of their friends. I agree, to an extent. His death absolutely was avoidable, also necessary because Destiel story arc, but here I believe Dabb knew what he was doing. Remember those parallels we talked about ^^?

So why? If Cas is coming back, like we now definitively know, why take the time and effort to include this scene? Because really, it was pointless. Lucifer could’ve killed Cas straight out of the portal without Cas ever entering, and it would’ve served the same purpose, and raised no questions. Because hey, shit happens, and Cas is almost always on the negatively receiving end of it. So why, Dabb? Why shoot this particular scene that seemingly makes no sense and had everyone questioning Cas’s intentions?

Come. Take my hand. Let me show you.

Dabb literally, intentionally, oh-so-deliberately, shot this scene:

To act as a parallel for this scene:

I REPEAT:

DABB DELIBERATELY SHOT THIS SCENE FOR THE SOLE PURPOSE OF DRAWING A PARALLEL BETWEEN SAM AND JESS AND CAS AND DEAN.

IT IS THE EXACT SAME SCENE. THE SAME STRUGGLE. ALMOST IDENTICAL DIALOGUE. THE SAME FUCKING FRAMING, FFS!

and before you say, no wait, your hopefulness, Jess doesn’t come back, this makes for a sad ending, stop, no, what are you doing??

YOU ARE MISSING THE BLATANTLY GAY POINT

Dabb recreated the first scene of the show with Dean and Cas. He intentionally paralleled Sam’s canonical relationship with his girlfriend to Dean’s canonical subtextual relationship with Cas.

Further, the scene with Sam and Jess marked the beginning of the series, the beginning of Sam rejoining his brother in the family business, but also the unfortunate end of his relationship with the woman he loved. If you look at this reversed (much in the same way Cain said to Dean about how he was living his life in reverse), that would mean that this could possibly be hinting at the end of the show, but also the beginning of Dean’s relationship with the man angel he loves.

I mean, I’m not saying that Destiel is endgame…but fuck. Destiel is endgame.
