chemistry factors

Analysis: Chemistry

I already mentioned how important is the development of an emotional connection based on meaningful moments. But here I’m going to elaborate on something that’s a little bit deeper

We already know there are key moments that not only push the plot foward but also leave a deep mark on the characters while strengthening the relationship between them. But while a few uphold such as arguments, many others stick to what they call “sexual tension”. What do these people base such “tension” on? One word: “chemistry”

So I thought this would probably lead to a debate: a solid emotional development Vs. a seemingly superior chemistry

But what’s “chemistry”?

Personally I had an idea of what this concept was, until seeing the way how people applied the term made me doubt the meaning of this word in the context we work with. So I decided to do some research, and discovered that the whole concept cannot be fully applied to Shonen (male-oriented) stories. But by discarding what doesn’t fit in this kind of stories, we still find bits of this concept as authors sometimes want to add some depth to their characters and the way they connect with others

In the context of relationships, chemistry is related to mutual trust/faith; it’s a natural connection, “a bond, or common feeling between two people”. In fact, I found something interesting in this regard: “real chemistry between characters happens when they affect each other in big ways”.

We could also add that one of the most important factors for chemistry is the “emotional support”. A character might rely on another because they help to regulate their potential partner’s emotions. In this regard, the distressed person feels comfortable enough to express their anxiety and/or helplessness and their potential partner is capable of providing strenght and hope

It can be seen we’re coming back to same themes I highlighted in my previous analysis; the emotional impact of significant moments; consistent bonding based on a remarkable faith and trust on one another. And we can futher elaborate on this! As real chemistry “occurs when you bring two characters together and they change in some fundamental way as a result of their relationship”

Moreover “sexual tension”, in spite being a potential factor in chemistry, can be likened to elements of standard love stories where instead of solid development and compelling characterization, we only get two characters ending up together with little to no build-up in their relationship. No bonding, no real connection, we just get a half-baked “romance” because one was “indebted” to the other, or because “secret feelings” coming out of the blue, or beause one of them is a “real romantic” with potentially big sex drive; any cheap excuse!

However, even if we were to take such element seriously, we have to remember that “sexual chemistry is not enough to build a relationship on”

There’s also people who like to rely on something else that doesn’t fit what a compelling “chemistry” should be. A site that explains this concept clearly states the following: “it should never be shown or implied that a character owes the other a relationship because of favors done”. So neither emotional development or chemistry should rely on mere “debts” like certain fans always insist

Now the question is: is chemistry the competition of a strong consistent bonding? Not at all. Actual chemistry relies on a strong consistent bonding: mutual trust/faith, emotional build-up, the impact interactions leave on the characters, among other relevant factors.

I’m just going to say there are several reasons why I stick to LuNa and NaLu…

On one side we can see how the faith/trust Luffy puts in Nami canonically surpasses his trust in Zoro and Robin. Also there’s the fact their emotional bonding had constantly developed through the series by means of significant moments, the emotional impact such interactions leave. On the other side we have Lucy developing a deep affection along an emotional attachment for Natsu, it’s even lampshaped by the story and the characters; while Natsu himself also develops a strong emotional connection with her, which leads to pretty unique moments between them.

So I can say that their “chemistry” certainly fit in their respective stories, while sparing room for futher development and likeable interactions

Most of the One Piece arguments commented in response to this publication are dealt with in my previous analysis, which I recently updated and reblogged. Please read it before leaving another comment concerning the themes of consistent bonding and emotional development in One Piece

[Ask RPedia] Getting Together: How To Meet Your Characters!

Anonymous asked: Alright, I’ve been reading your stuff and it’s all really helpful and you’re awesome- I’ve gotta ask this though. How do I get two characters to meet and a story going? I can’t seem to come up with good reasons for people to interact with my character and it’s really frustrating. I’ve made starters, but I always end up stressing over not being able to come up with a plot good enough to keep anyone’s interest for very long and never send them. Any tips or anything would be great!

Sounds like you’ve got some issues beyond the original question, which means you want to meet characters and keep them interested in each other, I’ll deal with that too, but first! Let’s discuss how to get characters to meet up, in situations ranging from ‘we work together’ to ‘we don’t even exist in the same universe canonically.’

If a woman has a thing for guys with tats, it doesn't mean she disregards everything else and totally dehumanizes them because of her preference. She just finds that tats make a guy more appealing to her. Same thing with the chair/disability and devs. All of the regular, mundane chemistry and compatibility factors between two people still apply. The handful of creepy devs online are a minority, but they loom larger because they're the most visible. The vast majority are quietly "in the closet".

How Do You Know When You Love Someone?
I’m 10,000 feet in the air and feeling ambitious. I figure if I go down, I might as well go down swinging. So I picked the toughest question in my inbox of 208.  Yes, I know they are accumulating.  That’s why I’m answering questions and not on Youtube.  Anywho, got my Dunkin Donuts coffee balancing on the lopsided tray, my half folded lap top pressed against the reclined seat in front of me, and my pants unbuttoned (two donuts while waiting to board). Okay, let’s do this.

I used to believe that love was a light switch. Something flicks on. You get an overwhelming sensation. It hits you like a bag of bricks. Or a strong arrow. When you know, you know. Right? Not so much. After 38 years and an expired marriage, I don’t see love that way anymore.  I’ve placed Cupid right next to Santa Claus and the Easter Bunny.

Love is a series of choices.  The first choice is based on many many factors, including chemistry, principle, logic, humor, intelligence, body type, where we are in our lives, what we want / need… the list goes on and on, and the weight of each factor varies depending on the individual.  Based on these factors, we either choose to begin the process to love or not. If we decide to enter this process, the action of loving can bring “light switch” moments. The way he looks at you. How hard she make you laugh. The notes he hides in your purse. The way she makes you feel when you don’t feel anything. But like an airplane flight, there is turbulence. The fights. The disagreements. The little things that bother you. His socks. Her shopping. You start wondering if you’ve made the right choice. Once you are in doubt, you have to make another choice. To continue to fly with this person or jump out of the plane. This choice is based on a thousand other factors, again depending on the individual and where they are in their journey. If you decide to jump, the scary free fall will either make you stronger (grow) or miserable (depressed). But sooner or later, you’ll find yourself back at the airport waiting to board another plane. Then you hit turbulence. Or maybe there is no turbulence. Maybe you’ve changed your mind about the destination.  Either way, another choice. Fly or jump?

Love is making a choice every single day, to either love or not love.  That’s it.  It’s that simple.  Either to continue the process or not. We fall in and out of love.  Even in relationships, especially in relationships.  This doesn’t mean we don’t love the person.  It means we are left with a choice.  There is a difference between feeling love for someone (caring about a person), and loving someone (choosing to love that person).  You may have love for someone forever.  But that doesn’t mean you choose to love that person forever.  The choice to love is not a feeling, it is an action.  That is why it is so difficult.  It requires you to do something and I’m not just talking about buying flowers.  It might mean putting your wants aside.  Also, like chemistry, the ability to love is not a constant. It is a variable. It fluctuates, depending on where you’re at in your life and what you’re struggling with. Sometimes it is easy to love. Sometimes it is extremely difficult. But at the end of the day, it’s always a choice. 

Although love varies, it also deepens. This means the longer you stay on that flight and embark on the journey together, the more fruit the process with bare. Your investment pays off. Your choices become easier. You not only become stronger as a couple, but also as individuals, assuming the love process is healthy - which means you guys are both doing work. The choice to love creates opportunity to hit notes in life that you could never hit alone and THIS is what makes your choice worth it. 

So how do you know if it’s love? That is not the question to ask. The question is do you choose to love this person or not? Right now. Not tomorrow. Today. Make a choice. Yes or no. If the answer is yes, love as hard as you can. Love with everything you’ve got (your capacity right now at this point in your life). If the answer is no, promise me one thing. 

Let the fall make you stronger.

Everyone knows. I started a new job in a care home this week and walked into the lounge to four 80 yr old ladies talking about the yaught pics and when will they let that poor boy just be happy and out with Louis. I think I'm gonna like working here among my people. Asked how they knew, they said they knew from the x factor, the chemistry and love was writ large across their baby faces. One said I have been married 67 yrs I know what love looks like, and it's those two boys.

this is incredible

You know what  I really love about this moment? Besides the intense chemistry and hotness factor of course? How open and vulnerable Oliver is….. I love the fact that he’s obviously the one making the first move. Look closely, maybe not that closely as it is quite obvious ;), and you can see him pulling her in for the kiss. :THUD:  I mean this is the guy who was afraid of his feelings for her for so long and the one that tried so hard to fight his feelings , that sometimes he was even afraid of touching her.  Don’t get me wrong, I love the shoulder and face touches, they say so much, but it took him awhile to touch her without a little bit of awkwardness there. As he got closer to her emotionally, the more he became more open towards her. And I think the more intimate touches, like hugs were always started by Felicity.
Now look at him,this man is crazy in love.  All he wants to do in this moment is show her how much she matters to him. And even if by an off chance he’s drugged here[which I doubt] it doesn’t matter; it still holds the same meaning: He loves her and wants her in his life. He just needed a little push to help him get there LOL. I can also tell how different this relationship is to him, how important it is and how much he doesn’t want to mess it up; Just by him being this open with her.

I love Felicity’s influence on him. Not only is she the light in his life, but she’s helped him mature in both his hero’s journey and emotionally. No wonder he fell in love with her so deeply, she is his driving force and his strength; we’ve seen that over and over again. Without her, he is lost. Boy is this season going to be angsty but in the end it’s all going to be worth it…. I feel it.
Honestly, i never thought we would be here two seasons ago. Hell, if you told me that we would be here last season{ in the beginning} I would have laughed in your face. Now here we are…. amazing all that we have been given. We truly are an extremely lucky fan base… and for that I’m extremely grateful.

Just 42 more days to GO!!!!

Jensen Ackles might be considered for Uncharted.

OK take this with a HUGE handful of salt, I didn’t know whether to post this and get anyone’s hopes up because I can’t say how reliable the information is but I got excited when I heard because the guy I heard it from was spot on about Ben Affleck playing Batman and Christian Bale in America Hustle before any rumours started flying around. 

It might be a case of 50 names being thrown in a hat and Jensen being one of them but he said Jensen is the name he’s hearing the most for the role of Nathan Drake along with Tyler Hoechlin. They were initially going for an A'lister (Bradley Cooper among the names he mentioned) but seem to have changed their minds and the call is going to go out for a more unknown actor late 20s to mid-30s. He said their main concern is getting the likeability factor and chemistry right between the actors so there’s going to be a LOT of screen tests.

Production doesn’t start until 2015 so anything can happen between now and then and there’s also talk of it being shoved back a few years in the production schedule but my source (which makes him sound more important than he is which is nosey and lucky lol) is convinced Jensen will be in talks somewhere down the line. 

I’m trying not to get my hopes up because the more I think about it the more perfect it sounds. He’d be a great choice.
