Olicity Drabble 5x17 ~Holding

Sometimes the hardest tests bring about the greatest gifts. This episode while emotionally heart-wrenching was also an amazing gift. This is just me hoping for an Olicity scene even it it wasn’t needed. (Gif: not mine)

“Darkness doesn’t just happen…

Like a endless nightmare darkness spreads through you slowly like a disease. At first the changes are slight and go unnoticed. But eventually the snow of the cold winter melts and, the scars of it’s punishing season are forever left behind…” 

Felicity let those words spread through her slowly like the very disease she feared would soon consume her. Seeing the blood along his open wounds for her was like looking in a mirror. His beaten battered body felt like a true reflection of her soul. Hearing him declare he was done sent shivers of cold relief through her rigid spine because, for once she didn’t feel that she’d emotionally been left behind. For once his soul, heart, mind and, body clearly matched her own…

The elevator doors slid together slowly, the room seemed to grow colder now that only their two shattered hearts remained. She heard his shuffled steps along the cold, unforgiving floors as she let her fingers dance slowly over the worn keys. She tried to shut down the world around her body as her eyes danced along the faded E. She heard him wince when his fingers slid down the side of the gray and green walls. Her heart thumped in agony as her thumb brushed over the worn space bar numbly.

Steven Universe ‘Fillers’ and why we need to talk about it.

Oh, I need to talk about “Fillers”, because I just watched the review by Mykal on Cartoon Universe and his ‘it’s okay to call this filler’ and I just wanna say BS on that. Honestly, I don’t understand how blind people are. 

Do you know that there are shows who DOESN’T focus on main-plot 100% of the time? They have fun episodes, dumb episodes, annoying episodes and episodes about things that are a bit controversial.

Let’s look at shows like, Supernatural, Doctor Who, Bones, How I met your Mother, Star vs. The Force of Evil, Gravity Falls, all shows who would have a HUGE percentage of “filler episodes” by SU-fans standards.
What they do however have, together with Steven Universe is SUB-PLOTS. Several of them. Several character arcs that does not revolve around the main characters 100% of the time. And that is totally fine.

For one, the crew doesn’t make episodes for you, they make episodes for themselves, they create the media they want to create. And yes Rocknaldo was something they wanted to create. 

Two, Let’s look at the shows I just talked about, Supernatural was about finding their dad, saving each other and each season had a main-plot going through, but still you found episodes where Sam and Dean went to a god damn school to look at some teenagers Supernatural musical while there was something living in the basement and it did absolutely not further the plot any bit. SU-Standard. That is filler. Doctor Who, is the same. Let’s say ehhh Eleven’s time, you know that emotional Vincent Van Gogh episode? That’s also filler by SU-standard, it doesn’t further the plot one bit. Yes you can argue that some does, but the same can be argued with the Steven Universe episodes. 

Three, have you ever heard of Character arcs? This is something I think Steven Universe does nicely and non-tiring. Because a lot of times you would have an entire arc from like 1-6 episodes of just the same character getting through things. Lke have you literally watched character arcs in Anime? They are so damn tedious and take so long, and here Steven Universe gives us side-character development one episode at a time. Imagine if you’d have to sit through ALL Ronaldo episodes in one Steven Bomb. You’d literally flip your shit, yet I see spoiled children flip their shit from just ONE episode that doesn’t evolve the main crew or furthers plot. Yes I call you spoiled, because that’s what you are. Spoiled

 Ronaldo obviously should be allowed character development, just like other characters. Like Lars, Sadie, Sour Cream, Onion, etc. 

And with that, I’m done.

Clint found Lauren in a corner vent. It was big enough that she could sit and stretch her legs out, but she stayed curled up, crying and whimpering. Clint settled next to her, stretching his legs out in front of him as far as he could. They didn’t say anything, just sat in silence, enjoying the cool air pushing through the vents. Lauren accepted the calm and soothing vibes the beta beside her was giving off. He’d heard the entire ordeal, ready to get in and stop the fight if he had to.

“You know, he’s just beating himself up over everything.” Clint finally says, wrapping an arm around the omega at his side, pulling her into his chest. “He was going to send Natasha and I, but he figured Steve and Bucky would be better suited if something went wrong. He’s just mad at himself. He thinks he’s at fault for this, when really no one had control over what happened. It’s an act of nature.” Clint shrugs. “It happens. There are far worse Alphas than Steve, though. But you dad does hate his guts, and Bucky’s too.”

Lauren groans a little, shifting closer to Clint. He tightens his hold on her, letting her cry until she at least feels slightly better. The small distress she was in fading away.

“You should try to talk to him. You’re not under his influence anymore, but you are his daughter. If he’ll listen to anyone, he’ll listen to you.”

******

She hadn’t been planned. Tony had gone into a rut, and had hired an omega to satisfy him. He hadn’t planned on the omega going into heat, or becoming pregnant. He didn’t see the omega again. His daughter had been abandoned when she was a baby, not uncommon among professional omegas. The hospital had done a DNA test, and he’d gotten the call. He’d taken her in, his little pup. Chocolate eyes and a dark tuft of hair on her head. She was beautiful. He hired omegas to feed her, get his pup the nutrients she needed. He treated her like a princess, only giving her the best. He kept her out of the public eye, knowing someone somewhere would get an idea. He kept her fiercely guarded, her identity known to only a handful he could trust. Not even one Obadiah Stane knew who she was. And when she presented as an omega, he hadn’t thought any less of her. If anything, he became more protective. She slept in shirts he wore, keeping his scent on her at all times. When she had her first heat, he brought in a doctor to make sure she stayed calm, and stayed healthy. Then he immediately got her on suppressants, making sure she took them when she was supposed to. He took care of her, because that’s what he had to do. He was all she had, and she was all he had for a long time. He wasn’t going to let some cocky, self-righteous Alpha think he can just reach in and snatch her in a moment of weakness. Oh yes, he would get rid of this problem, and take back his omega, even if he had to kill for her.

He had prepared himself to fight for her. He knew he wouldn’t stand a chance against Steve bare handed. Steve could take him out with one punch. So he’d have to be a little unfair. He would just say he’s making it even.

“Dad?” He turned when he heard Lauren’s voice. “Dad, please don’t do this.”

“I have to. It’s the only way I can keep you safe.”

“Dad, I can’t lose you. You know you won’t win.”

“Then I’ll die trying to do the right thing.”

“Dad, did you ever think that maybe this isn’t the right thing? That killing Steve, or getting yourself killed trying, isn’t the best for me? That, maybe I need both of you. As my dad, and my bonded Alpha.”

“I’m your Alpha.”

“No, you’re not. You’re my dad, who’s an Alpha. I’m your omega pup. You know you couldn’t keep me unbonded forever. And who better than someone you know can keep me safe. Yeah, Steve ruined your childhood, and Bucky killed your parents, but none of that was their fault. But yet you make it their faults. If you kill Steve, another Alpha will just come along, unless you bond me, and I know it’s been done before, but…I don’t want that for my life.” She shook her head. “If you kill Steve, I’ll never speak to you again.”
