defined moment

man I remember the first time i read that “this isn’t fear, it’s anger” bit I was so blown away by what a good defining character moment that was. a big thing with hakuno is that you’re led on to believe she’s a generic passive self insert protag, and she kind of is at the start of extra, but as you go on she grows into a character in her own right and one of her core traits is defiance. she’s not going to be passive. she’s not going to just sit around and let things happen around her like a bland self insert protag. she doesn’t tremble in fear like anyone else would, she shakes with anger that someone thinks they can just DO shit to her. in extra even though she has no way to escape the holy grail war system, the conclusion of the game is her telling the one who created it to go fuck himself and then dismantling it. in the series of events leading up to her ending up on the far side of the moon she’s not just whisked away by BB to be toyed with, she makes the active choice now and throughout the rest of the game to not put up with this shit even if it kills her. in extella she is SO pissed at the mere SUGGESTION that a happy ending isn’t possible that she sends her memories to another timeline to demand another chance. I love hakuno.

There's so many significant developments in their relationship during Season 2. I particularly love the Chupacabra episode, seeing what Daryl is prepared to put himself through for her and Sophia, but there are so many more. What would you pick as the most important and defining Caryl scenes / episodes in S2?

I was thinking about this I know exactly which scene I believe is the most important and defining moment that I can think of. And it breaks my heart but here it is..

When Sophia came out of that barn and Daryl immediately dropped his weapon and was the only person to be aware enough of Carol to stop her from running to her..

And then held and comforted heart that moment, protecting her physically and emotionally in the moment. Just being there for her. He didn’t even think about it just did it…

I mean this is the worst moment in her life literally and he has his arms around her and if this not important I don’t know what is. And even more so than this is what he did the minute Rick pulled his gun out to put Sophia down. He pulled her back so she wouldn’t see it…

“Don’t look.”

He spared her the horror of having to watch he daughter get shot. He was the one that stopped her, held and protected her in that most horrible of moments and I have doubt she remembers this to this day.  To me this is one of the most significant moments they’ve had and  reminds us that he is one of the few people left who was there for that. Who remembers Sophia as well.

When you think about the things he’s protected her from since,  its so profound to remember this.

Daryl was there for her in that moment and that is so significant in their history. Which to makes this episode and especially this scene so very important not only in terms of Caryl in s2 but right up until now.

Ashi

  • First impression: Why does she look like Ilana?
  • Impression now: I will protect her with my life.
  • Favorite moment: The sequence where she literally washes off the darkness of her past and changes her hair and clothes. It was a kinda fanservice-y but it was a defining moment for her character development. She’s leaving the past behind and choosing her own destiny. 
  • Idea for a story: I wish we knew what kind of relationship she had with her sisters, if any, so an episode like that would be good. Also I want her to get revenge on her mother for everything she did.
  • Unpopular opinion: She’s a grown woman and not a teenager please stop treating her like a baby, fandom.
  • Favorite relationship: With Jack. He’s the only positive relationship she has so far and I like the way it’s progressing. I still hope she’ll make some friends besides him.
  • Favorite headcanon: Ashi has a knack for art. Any kind of art. She would love to learn how to draw and paint the beauty she sees in the world, and even how to make more clothing out of eco friendly materials.

Never mind the “Who shot first?” stuff; THIS is the defining moment of the Han Solo character:

Everyone else was just like: “Oh, fuck: It’s Vader!” and standing around in shock and terror when Vader was revealed. Even Chewie.

Most people, I suspect, would have that reaction. 

Meanwhile, Han’s first reaction, instinctively, in less than a second, was to grab a gun and try to flat-out end the guy.

He failed, of course. But God Damn if you can’t appreciate the effort.

What are your favorite Auston and Mitch moments?

good question, anon. let’s begin:

I’ll add more as we go along with their adventures

Dean and self worth in season 12

I was going to write a post about Cas as the unrequited lover this season but I ended up really focusing on Dean and his view of himself. It’s quite clear that Dean reciprocates the romantic feelings but is holding back. My perception is that its due to 3 main reasons (and I’m sure a whole bunch of others but lets stick to these).

1. Cas is an angel

2. Cas is a dude

3. Dean has poor self worth

I think the first subject is nearly a moot point as its pretty clear where Cas’s arc is going. The second has been discussed so many times I don’t want to insult anyone by repeating what much more coherent people have said. The third though I think has been less touched on in it’s relevance to this new season so here are my little thoughts.

Regarding his own self worth this has been an issue for Dean since the pilot…

Just a few moments to remind us:

Dean 9x10:
“Come on, man. Can’t you see? I’m… I’m poison, Sam. People get close to me, they get killed or worse.  You know, I tell myself that I I help more people than I hurt. And I tell myself that I’m – I’m doing it all for the right reasons, and I believe that. But I can’t, I won’t drag anybody through the muck with me. Not anymore.”

And…

Now unfortunately Cas actually makes this sense of self worth even worse as clearly since their first real defining moment, when Cas defied HEAVEN for him “I did it all for YOU”, Dean has felt the weight of all that happened to Cas since. That’s why Cas’s words in 12x12 made him clam up, tense, look away. “The things we’ve shared together, they have changed me”. it isn’t what Cas meant but Dean can’t help but take on yet more guilt in Cas’s dying moments.

Especially if HE might be to blame as Cas’s “human weakness”…

Originally posted by super-sootica

As is a continuous theme from other Angels…

Originally posted by missmegrose

As he sees Cas changing over time he therefore can’t help but blame himself. And unfortunately most of the changes haven’t been for the best.

Remember that scene with Kevin from 7x21:

“Cause the angels – they don’t care. I think maybe they just don’t have the equipment to care. Seems like when they try, it just… breaks them apart.”


Now in Season 12

Originally posted by justjensenanddean

Dean tells Mary that :  

“Saving people, hunting things, this is our life. I think we make the world a better place, I KNOW that we do”.

Now that is a big step forwards to his self worth. 

He’s also upset with Mary in the later episodes BECAUSE HE FEELS HE AND SAM DESERVE BETTER! If he didn’t have self worth he wouldn’t care so much.

Now, regarding Cas, he is less and less angelic and more human, and Dean is noticing this. Cas keeps refuting the angels and has now said himself that he considers the Winchesters his family. He is definitely becoming more human. He’s hunting, driving a car, feeling emotions and now finally feeling like part of the family.  Yes, he also has been more broken, but he is definitely getting better now that the boys have both been supportive in recent times. Just the sniping back at Dean in 12x12 is again, similarly to Dean’s reaction to Mary, showing that CAS has more self worth and will stand up for himself.

In Summary…

1. If only Cas were human…. *cough* probably not going to be an issue forever.

2. If only performing!Dean were having some deconstruction and he didn’t feel the need to keep the front up re: bisexuality. I mean, the whole point of 12x11 was about deconstructing for the audience performing!Dean, what’s the point if not to continue this theme in the narrative.

3. If only Dean thought he deserved to be loved (its not surprising how when you look into it Crowley has some really good relevance to Dean’s internal struggles…). This seems to be an overriding theme of season 12 / Mary’s arc.

Well, all I can say is all these things seem to be being addressed in season 12  :)
