Friendly reminder that Artemis Fowl literally donated a hugeass amount of his money to his already richass all-boys school–anonymously–with the deal that his whole year will go on a field trip all the way to friggin Germany just so he can sneak away from the whole group to rob the most secured bank in the world undetected by his parents.
the thing about zeke/mylene is that they BOTH go through character development to get with each other. mylene’s speech in ep 1 really says everything: she won’t be with zeke because she won’t be with a man who has no ambition, a man who will drag her down when she leaves the bronx
at the beginning, zeke’s only ambition is to be w/ mylene, but that’s not enough for her; this causes him to run into shaolin and start everything with the get down brothers. we all see how this becomes zeke’s ambition, the one thing he wants to pursue out of everything else he’s been offered. zeke’s confidence in himself and his ambitions is something mylene likes A LOT (after she gets used to the record scratching) and it literally completes the only reason she wouldn’t be with him (i mean, really, mylene DID give zeke a “how to date me” guide lmfao)
for mylene, the biggest thing people misunderstand is that she had zero feelings for zeke, which is plain wrong lmfao. she didn’t LOVE him, but she did have feelings for him. she just wasn’t going to sacrifice her future for them (which is understandable, jesus). so zeke finally has a Goal in Life, and mylene likes that, but more importantly mylene is the one who approaches zeke in the blackout and offers support and love. she does that by herself, her own prompting!! and by being w/ zeke she a) learns to accept the get down as something zeke likes & wants to pursue and b) is willing to date him while he stays in the bronx (end of ep 6, where she asks if he’ll visit her), a complete difference from the end of ep 1
it’s fucking tiring to see all this ridiculous mylene hate when part 1 showed both zeke and mylene working to be with each other and going through some Good Old Character Development, it’s really unfair to both characters and usually always unfair to mylene
even if you make the executive decision to never watch classicaloid, please watch this scene. I’ve rewatched episode 11 fifty times just for this one scene. please. watch it. watch the scene. I made a youtube account for it
I just want to say something because even though i personally haven’t seen it on my dash, I’ve seen post that mention that some people agree with Sonja? Or hate Even?? And that just makes no sense to me so, have this story.
I don’t have any sort of mental illness but I grew up around someone who does. My aunt. She has schizophrenia.
Growing up I saw her have a couple of episodes. I heard my mom discuss her medications, her behavior, her doctors appointments. Running off to take care of her during the episodes I didn’t witness. Felt and witnessed the anxiety and fear for my aunts safety and well being. Through all this the one thing I never grew up with? The idea that she was wrong. That she was bad. That she was “crazy”. I never really saw her differently from any other member of my extend family.
Her kids though, they had a problem.
You see, my aunt’s ex husband was not a good guy. He treated her disorder as something to blame on her. As if she somehow brought it on herself. My cousins grew up with the same mentality. There is a lot of other stuff here but I won’t talk about that. The story i want to talk about is this one.
A couple of years after her divorce my aunt met someone. My cousins weren’t thrilled about this. They accused him of taking advantage of my aunt. Then after 2 years of dating and one big episode, my cousins decided to commit her. My aunts boyfriend was having none of that. He fought for her. And he won.
I remember my mother asking him if he was sure, if he wanted to take on the responsibility of taking care of her. Do you know what he said? He said she’s always been his responsibility because he loves her.
They’ve been together nearly 20 years. My aunt hasn’t stopped having episodes. She hasn’t stopped taking medication. It’s been ups and downs. But I never ONCE doubted his love for her. HE NEVER ONCE DOUBTED HER LOVE FOR HIM. They have and continue to live a full happy life together.
Having a mental illness does NOT invalidate someones personhood. It does NOT invalidate their emotions. It does NOT invalidate their trauma. It absolutely does NOT make them unlovable or incapable of love.
In conclusion: Even deserves everything good and pure in the world and Sonja needs to grow up and get that Even doesn’t need a babysitter, he needs a partner. And she clearly isn’t it.
A List of Reasons the Bunker Shouldn't Get A Sofa:
1 - The sofa in question is suspiciously abandoned.
They see it on the side of the road in a town they’re passing through for a messy ghoul hunt.
“Dude, we need that sofa,” Dean says, slowing the Impala to look.
“Since when?” Sam asks, not looking up from the stack of police reports he’s been obsessing over since the morgue.
“Since we can’t watch fuckin’ anything as a family without crowding into your room and sitting on your awful bed. We could get another TV and have an actual living room space in the Bunker.”
“Fine, but we’ve been doing that for years and you never complained, or said we should adopt every stray sofa we see. What gives?”
“What gives? I want a sofa and now we have a place to put it, story over.”
Sam gives him that annoyingly unconvinced look he gets when he is trying to remind Dean that he knows him so much better than this. He drops the subject though.
The thing that’s changed is that in the last few months, Cas has moved into the Bunker.
With Mary also there more often than not, it could be a case of over-crowding. If you assumed no ulterior motives to ending the stranglehold Sam’s room had on their group media consumption.
“How would we get it back, though?”
That stumps Dean but not so much they don’t argue on and off about methods for the whole three days they’re staking out graveyards, crawling around in storm drains, and generally cursing out the existence of ghouls. The sofa remains waiting for them on the side of the road whenever they drive past that intersection.
