I just started crying again reading Jen’s departure interview. I can’t even explain how much respect and admiration I have for her. I’m so not ready to say goodbye to Emma Swan and I’m devastated her story is coming to a close, but this quote really stood out to me..
“I have no regrets. I really have no regrets. I have put one million percent of myself into this woman for the last six years, I have lived and breathed her, cared about her, worried about her, studied every script inside and out, tried to find every possibility, every option, everything I could possibly do, worked so closely with Eddy and Adam with every detail of her. I’ve poured my genuine honest heart into her, so I have no regrets.“ [x]
No one loves and cares about Emma Swan more than Jen does.. so if she says she’s happy with the way Emma’s story ends, I know I’ll be happy with it too. If she says she feels great about it, I feel great about it too. When it comes to Emma and her story, I trust Jen completely. I’ve said it a million times today and I’m sure I’ll say it a million times more, but I’m so thankful for Jennifer Morrison and everything she’s given to Emma Swan.. she wouldn’t be my favourite character without her.
concept: 2x08 starts of with magnus waking up in his bed, reaching the other side of it with his hand only to find that alec is not there. magnus’ worst fear has come true…just as he leaned his head back in the pillow, fighting the tears that are rushing to his eyes, the bedroom door opens. it’s alec and he’s bringing breakfast in bed for his boyfriend! ‘you….you’re here??’ magnus asks. ‘of course i’m here…where else would i be?’ alec says as he walks towards the bed and it brings the biggest smile on magnus’ face because in that moment he realizes that alec is not going anywhere. he is the one that stays. always.
Everything about this episode was pure joy, I can’t stop smiling. From the cheesy Disney-esque musical numbers to finally, after years of waiting, getting to watch my OTP get married and start their ‘happy beginning’. My heart is so full right now.
One of the things that always gets me about PLL is that they actually HAVE good concepts and storylines - mainly with the Dilaurentis/Drake/Hastings family - but they never utilize them enough.
We have (potentially) Twincer, we have Cece, Jason, Melissa, Ali, Spencer. ALL of these characters are amazing and interact well with each other and are operating through their parent’s lies, and each is filled with insecurities and conflicts. Imagine seeing Twincer take over Spencer’s life - not as A or AD but as a girl who wanted a family and was upset that she never got it. Imagine how that would work with the scene where Mary Drake is forgiven, where we learn about how the Hastings family is not what it seems.
Imagine Spencer coming to terms with Cece being her sister and her torturer - whether or not Cece is alive it would still be fascinating and amazing to see. Or Spence and Jason bonding more, talking more about how similar they are and exploring a dynamic that isn’t marred by past hatred or accidental romances. Or Ali and Jason, understanding that their past was filled with contempt but realizing and accepting that they’re different people now.
Imagine Alison and Spencer’s contentious yet (mostly) loyal relationship being explored in depth, how they argue and are constantly opposing each other yet Spencer will put herself in front of a bullet for Ali and Ali will trust Spencer to understand her clues.
Imagine any of the sibings talking about how different yet similar they are. How they’ve almost all dealt with addiction or mental illness, how they’ve been pulled into this world of secrets and lies.
Even other characters - think of Emily not being shuffled from one meaningless relationship to the other for plot reasons but getting to have relationships that are actually expanded on. Or Mona, who offered the A game to Spencer and convinced Alison to remain missing, getting to explore a new dynamic with Spencer and Alison, or with a Spencer twin who is just as intelligent as Spencer and actually took over the game.
There is just so much potential that they could have actually delved into but instead, we get episodes with Aria getting a wine stain out of a carpet, a proposal that comes at the sake of insulting and dismissing another character, and characters thrown in at the last second. We get filler after filler, and the things that have depth to them tend to be shoved into the last episode or two in order because they barely scratch the surface of what they have and simply work with their has-potential ideas.
I can’t believe blackrock has officially… ended. It was many years ago I started watching it.
I look up to Zoey, who helped me come to terms with the fact I like girls, the fact that I could be unabashedly happy with me, and the fact that anxiety is a constant battle that I win everyday I get out of bed. teaching me in blackrock that disabled people can be and are amazing, and that talking mental illness is not something to be ashamed of.
I look up to Teep, who at least in blackrock didn’t (assumed couldn’t) talk, for having such a big impact on me seeing that disabled individuals can be in any and every thing, and even be hecking badass. That you can convey so much more through actions than words, and that caring go your friends is not something to be ashamed of.
And God, God, do I look up to Rythian, who helped me make friends, love writing and not be afraid to write my characters complex and even tragic in some cases, even if my friends would tease me sometimes (oh look, Austen is roleplaying again…).
I look up to my Dad, who saw a scared, imaginative, and in-the-closet but didn’t know it yet, 11 year old and said, “Do you want to see a video? it’s about a girl, a boy, a dinosaur and a land with magic and monsters.”
I know you’ve moved on, Minecraft isn’t your thing anymore, that the story hasn’t “ended,” because you passed it down to us but… thank you. so much. you have no idea what a big impact on me this was. that this was the reason I started drawing more, the reason I’m the person I am today.
I haven’t watched Minecraft videos in a while, maybe a little over a year, but when I saw this I was in tears.
This meant so much to me. This means so much to me. I’m in tears now.
Thank you, @rythian and thank you @zoeyp. For giving a little kid a world in which they could thrive and grow.
ok but a Destiel soulmate AU where the first words your soulmate says to you are written on your skin somewhere, but set in canon-verse. so his entire life Dean has had words written on the inside of his wrist that he doesn't understand at all because surprise, they are in Enochian. and so when Cas tries to speak to him that first time when Dean is at the gas station after being pulled out of hell, Dean covers his ears, not knowing that his soulmate just spoke their first words to him~
I saw a headcanon so beautiful I started crying. :’)
I don’t, but I made a quick (and not at all exhaustive) timeline summary for you. This literally broke my heart into a million pieces to make because Haylor is not something that I like to remember, but I hope you find it helpful.
