5 × 9 What Happened, What’s Going On
5 × 11 The Distance

I am going to lose my mind for the remainder of the time TWD is on air, because our OTP is so wonderful that the moments they are on screen TRANSCEND and exceed my expectations. There has never been a couple who–just by gazing at one another or holding hands–has slain me like Richonne, which is a testament to the raw, organic beauty of this couple. Of course, I LOVE every Richonne moment since they became canon. But, it is a necessary process to pay homage to and CELEBRATE special pre-canon moments right now.

5 × 9: So many horrible events have taken place. TF has just lost Beth and Noah’s dreamy old neighborhood is in shambles. Clearly, Noah is distraught–for obvious reasons. BUT, my dear, sweet Rick Grimes only has eyes for Michonne. Rick is beside himself with how to comfort his love. He physically touches her a couple times in this episode. The touches happen so fast, one might miss them if they blink. But, they’re there. And, these touches signal Rick’s desire, want, and love. I’m sure he was hearing the “Don’t you ever touch me again” refrain from his initial encounter with Michonne. The quintessential climatic Richonne moment in this episode is when Rick proclaims that TF will go to Washington. The looks Rick and Michonne exchange take my breath away. I argue that in this moment they are professing their mutual love and intimacy with a look.

5 × 11: “We need this, so we’re going; all of us,” says Michonne.
“Yeah, we’re going,” Rick replies.

Rick doesn’t believe or CAN’T believe in or trust the prospect of Alexandria, because of everything TF has been through. Every gate, EVERY new community they have chanced upon has ended in turmoil and bloodshed–Woodbury and Terminus are fresh in his mind–herein lies “Feral Rick.” But, as Michonne keeps eloquently expressing herself, “We need to stop. We can be out here too long,” Rick is obliged to acquiesce though he is still struggling.

Rick: “That’s what Bob was trying to tell me back at the church. What to risk, when it’s safe, when to let someone in. The rules keep changing.”

Michonne: “They did for me.”

This superb dialogue and intimate moment culminates with Rick closing his eyes to take in the sounds of Alexandria, as they drive up to the gate. He hears laughter and children playing. Michonne reaches over, places her hand on his hand, and asks if he’s ready. And, Grimes family 2.0 gets out of the car and steps across the threshold of their future.

I honestly believe that Richonne naysayers have never known or may never know HEALTHY, LOVING relationships. I’m not being melodramatic. Every miniscule detail of Rick and Michonne’s relationship–every disagreement, question, conversation, joke, hand-hold or kiss–IS A RELATIONAL EVOLUTION, BLOSSOMING AND OVERFLOWING WITH THE “QUIETER LOVE” MENTIONED BY C.S. LEWIS IN HIS WRITINGS. They are LOVE, HOPE AND COVENANT.

Victuuri Week 2017 – Day 6 – Victor prompt – Communication

Bonds Silent Communication

Something I’ve always loved about these two is the sheer amount of silent communication we see shared between them. Even though, contrary to a lot of other things, this is actually something that can be captured in still frames, I felt it would do the scenes more justice to see them in their full glory. So in a first attempt for me to explore new territory, have a gifset dedicated to our favourite couple in celebration of VictuuriWeek 2017. Special guest appearance of their rings in most of the shots. :D

There are times when not speaking can scream louder than any words.

As we are sure you guys know, ASTROs 1st year debut anniversary is one day after the release of their special album. To celebrate the special album and our 1st year with ASTRO, it would be nice to give ASTRO the gift of 1 Million views on their new Music Video before their 1st year anniversary ends! So we call out to all Arohas or simply anyone who likes ASTRO to work together and stream and share this music video as much as possible! Let’s all work hard to show our boys how much we appreciate them!


Nick: I’m so glad that I could hang out with you tonight, sweetheart.

Judy: Me too. (giving him a smile)

Nick: You know, A lot of amazing things happened this year. I became a real police officer, and I also fell in love with a bunny. though it’s hard to predict what’ll we be confronted with next year, I’m not afraid since you’re by my side. 

Judy: So do I. (Hugging Nick’s waist)

Nick: Happy new year, Judy…

Judy: Happy new year…

(They shared an long, affectionate kiss with each other.)

Happy new year, guys! I can’t even believe that today is the last day of 2016. Everyone seems to be excited about the New Year’s Eve Celebration. But I, in contrast, have to face the exam… I’m like TT ~~

Anyway, I wish all of you can have a great time celebrating this special moment. Furthermore, I also look forward to the year packed with possibilities and surprises. ^U^
