Some extra notes on this comparison between The Spirit Morph Saga and His Dark Materials Series: the roles of Pantalaimon and Will seem to be sort of mixed together in Archimicarus, which is why I used references from both, yet Will also shares something with Lisa, because she seems to have lost an eye or got a patch at some point, whereas Will lost two fingers and spent a good portion of the 2nd book with a bandaged hand. Also, the 3rd book on TSMS mentions the Underworld, while in the 3rd book in HDM the Land of the Dead is crucial. I personally always found funny the part where Steven asks Connie what a familiar is, because I tried to introduce a friend to these books when I was 13 and her first question to me was “should I know what a dæmon is?”.
I’ve always felt that if something is polarizing, that’s usually the stuff I like the most. If something is taking a chance and is willing to be weird, that’s my favorite thing. I know there’s somebody out there who hates it.
indie aka my white twin: happy 19th birthday! i made this because you always make me smile, and you always make me laugh. i wish that i could physically hug you, but i guess i’ll have to settle for hugging you in spirit. you’re one of my favorite people ever. i consider myself lucky to call you my friend! i love you soooo much bean! xoxo, julie ♡ ♡ ♡
Hello friend that has bomb canes content on their blog I have a q: there's this pretty old gifset of Skinner and lindy doing an interview and just giggling a lot but the link to the video of it doesn't direct you to the video. Do you by chance know which gifset in referring to and also have a link to the video? Also i love your blog js
Thank you for the blog love friend!! I know exactly which one you’re talking about it’s probably my favorite one ever, and sadly I think it was a video before the NHL site changed their website which made all the old videos lose their links. I haven’t had a chance to see it either sadly :((
(If anyone has the Jeff and Lindy giggle fest video saved and would like to share, you’d be a life saver!)
This request was a very special one for me because the Anon wanted me to choose my own top 10 CS moments after making the top CS moments as part of the CS friendship project for other people.
This was so very sweet and really touched my heart <3 Thank you Anon for thinking of me :)
So this is actually the 300 word I’m doing for this project (not including the quotes) and so I thought it can be special to do for the 300 one :)
Now I want to explain a little bit my choices :) It’s not by order (it was hard enough to choose only 10, I could never rank them), except for the first one which is my ultimate favorite on the show. Hook being jealous of Past!Hook is maybe the most genius and hilarious thing they ever came up with lol, it was too damn perfect for me, so this is my number one!
As for the rest of them, I loved jealous Emma too because I love love love jealousy scenes, especially when they come in time of need, for the character and for the viewers too. Emma was about to go to lunch with Neal, Hook decided to step down and let Neal have a shoot with her, all should have gone in the entire opposite direction and then “boom” she sees him with someone else and her true feeling she was trying to conceal go up into the surface. And once it happens Hook’s realizes his promise to Neal is worthless because Emma has her own mind about who she wants to be with, even if she doesn’t want to admit it. So this was a real key point for me. It was also one of the things that made me know for sure that they are canon.
The scarf scene was the first scene that made my heart shiver for them for the first time. I realized I was hooked at that same moment.
The “when I win your heart” scene I chose for the same shiver I just talked about going through my heart when he said it. If you remember, there were promotional pictures for it, but it kinda looked like they are having a regular kinda serious talk there, we had no idea this was about to happen and it was just too much.
I chose the door moment because I think this is the moment we were all waiting for from Emma. I think this is the moment she finally let herself realize how in love she really is. I was so touched by it because we were waiting for so long for her to take down her walls and this is her realizing taking them down was the right choice.
I chose that moment in the sheriff station because it was the first time that I looked at them and saw a couple. They were so damn happy, no one was trying to hide or run away from the excitement. I remember thinking “OMG, they are boyfriend and girlfriend, finally!”
I loved the Neverland kiss, but I think the moment I loved most was that second after. The moment where the impact of the kiss on both of them is showed. I think it was the first time Hook looked liked he belongs to her.
The kiss on 4x03 was my favorite CS kiss so far. There is something about Hook initiating the kisses which is just so powerful and he does it in such a sexy way. He always let her lead up until that moment and truly respected her and her timing, but at that moment he knew he could go in for a kiss and it will be o.k because of the confidence her words gave him. It was an important moment for him to realize how much she truly cares.
As I was making the CS friendship project, I realized that the “don’t you know Emma, it’s you” moment is becoming one of the shippers top CS moments. A lot have requested to include it on their list and I’m not the exception ;) I just think this sentence value even more than an “I love you” because it talks about the infinite of his emotions. And of course there is the way Colin delivered the line and Jen acting with the response that just made that shiver appear once more.
I loved their fourth first meeting (lol, and I love that I can actually say that sentence and it would make sense, best show ever!!!). Colin!Hook, as I like to call him, fell in love with Emma at first sight and she looked more in love than ever. I think it was maybe the best exchange of looks that they had on the show.
So that’s it :) I hope you all like my choices as well :) That’s amazing how everybody can have his/her own favorite ones and we all share the same taste (the CS taste), but can have different sight on things within it. And the variety is so great!!! It’s so hard to choose only some of them.
Send me a word/quote/parallel and I’ll make you a CS gifset inspired by it.
What should be a collection of material about my favorite show has become the Agents of Ward tag, where even the nice Skye gifsets are made by people with names that reference that one awful ship.
You are a terrible place, Agents of SHIELD tag, and I want to burn you with fire.
You are full of people who want to slap Mack or be done with Mack or send Mack to hell, but who also love Grant Ward. We have seen Mack in both public and private moments, enough to know that the Mack we see is the genuine article and not some empty undercover persona, like Ward was. We know he cares for the team, has defended the team, and that he has done things because he likes these people, not because it was part of a mission. And when whatever the plan is comes out, the characters will react badly, but we the viewers (and by proxy, you the Agents of SHIELD tag) will know that Mack is better than Grant Ward, and I think that’s probably important.
To compare Mack to Grant Ward and come away finding Mack to be the worse betrayer – when we don’t even know his mission, yet – is just plain wrong. It hurts my heart that I share a fandom with people who could think these things, and I hate you, Agents of SHIELD tag, for collecting such incredibly stupid bullshit.
You are somewhat less full of people who know that Ward is a villain but are still upset by Mack – people who at least have a leg to stand on – but why is the hate still so much more fervently directed at Mack than at Bobbi? Mack is not the first Agent of SHIELD to incapacitate a fellow agent for (hidden) reasons, and Bobbi is right there with him on this plan. If Mack is an evil bad man, then Bobbi ‘Mockingbird’ Morse is an evil bad woman, but that seems to go unacknowledged, with Mack taking the brunt of the hate.
I wish you at least showed me people being fair with the way they distribute their hate, so that if someone actually believes that AoS has brought on Mockingbird to be purposefully evil/sinister, they spread their hate equally between Bobbi and Mack. Same with the ‘making Skye feel bad’ hate. You know I love Skye more than any character on this show, but even I have to admit that it’s a rational response for her team – especially the three newer members of the team – to express such fear. And it seems truly unfair to show me so many posts of people shitting on Mack for making Skye feel bad without equally hating Bobbi, Hunter, and Simmons for doing the same.
And why do I see people calling out Mack as “most problematic character” for making Skye feel like shit? Like, if someone wants to argue that Mack is a problematically drawn character who falls into some negative tropes of Black men in media, I’m here for that discussion, but I don’t see those discussions happening in you, Agents of SHIELD tag. Instead, you’re full of hate thrown solely because Mack expressed a fear that everyone else was expressing too. And you never showed me any outrage over a problematic character when Fitz defended Skye’s attacker to her face. No, when he made Skye feel like shit, you showed me posts of people actually wanting her to apologize for yelling at him. There’s some sort of double standard in play here about who is bad for making Skye feel like shit, but I can’t quite put my finger on it.
And jfc, Agents of SHIELD tag, everything is not falling apart because “bby Grant Ward” is gone. Skye does not “need” him right now. Skye hates that douchebag and I don’t understand why you’re full of posts that posit some real relationship between them. This season, he has existed as her stalker, and any personal relationship between them ceased to be when he revealed that he had lied about every facet of his personality. What fucking show are you actually even about? Because it can’t be Agents of SHIELD.
And I’d like to say I’m done with you, Agents of SHIELD tag, but I know I’m not. I’ll venture onto you any time I feel the need to take an actual pulse of awful stuff in this fandom. When I need to be sure that the outrage I see reflected on my own dash is justified. (It almost always is, in case you were wondering.)
