“So that Paige could pass on all that she learned. Not just to her own children, or to mine, or to Phoebe’s, but to other future witches and whitelighters as well. Which filled the time between when we were doing the fighting and when our kids were old enough to take over. Allowing me time to get back to my roots and cook something other than potions for once. And open the restaurant I’d always dreamed of owning. As for Leo, after we reclaimed magic school he went back to teaching. Which he continued to do, until it was time to retire. And although we certainly had our struggles…

‘THE ANGEL FALL SPELL WAS ALL OVER THIS SEASON… 12X10 IT WAS THE MAJOR PLOT THING, THE UNSPOKEN COMMENT ABOUT CUPIDS HOVERING ON MARY’S ARC, AND IN 12X12 SOMEONE NOTICED RAMIEL HAD A BUNCH OF CUPID ARROWS IN HIS BASEMENT :P
I DON’T THINK THEY FORGOT ABOUT THIS BECAUSE AT LEAST A FEW TIMES CAS CLARIFIED THAT IT WAS THE ARCHANGEL AND LUCIFER THING THAT MADE IT PARTICULARLY DANGEROUS TO EXPLAIN HIS MOTIVATION, I THINK IN 12X08 WHEN HE WAS FIRST TELLING THEM ABOUT IT AND IN 12X10 WHEN HE WAS STRESSING ABOUT FINDING KELLY, IF NOT OTHER TIMES LIKE TO KELLY IN 12X19. REMEMBERING THEY REMEMBER THAT THE DISTINCTION SEEMED QUITE CLEAR TO ME.’

@elizabethrobertajones Awesome! Yes, I could kind of remember them making sure that the distinction with Jack being Lucifer’s child made him more important than other Nephilim that may have been created, you’re completely right! I’ve just finished season 8, and am just watching all the way through till the last ep of S12, so how it all links up is becoming more clear. Because I’ve been watching it since early 2006, I would always watch episodes as they aired, and then watch the entire season when it came out on DVD a few times, and occasionally watch a season separately here and there. But this is the first time i’ve gone back to S1 and marathoning them all one after another, so I’m being reminded of various things that all you wonderful people have much fresher and clearer thoughts about for sure! It’s also really really strange to experience the show as one long uninterrupted plot, rather than watching it spaced out over 12 years. It’s such a hugely different viewing experience and the overarching plots and character development is so much clearer than how I’ve always watched it (i.e. watching each season a couple of times per year). 


The difference in how I’ve been watching it in this marathon has brought up so many interesting thoughts about how various other viewers watch the show. For instance, those who started watching it 12 years ago and watched it so spaced out without marathoning the seasons in between must view the show very differently to those who have been marathoning it, or those who recently started watching it and therefore could just watch so many seasons in one go. I can understand how it might be difficult for anyone who doesn’t watch all seasons one after another in a short space of time to miss so much about the links between each season. Because of how I watched it, how I view the first few seasons was always informed by why i liked the show in my early teens. Whereas now when I watch it in my 20s it’s only now taking on the meaning and perspective someone older could bring to the viewing experience.  

I can remember I used to watch seasons 1-5 all in one go, but I had never ever watched from 1 up to the very latest episode. I kind of wish I’d done this before, but at least now I have this cognitive dissonance where I know what it’s like to view the show as one whole, yet also know what it’s like to view the show as separate seasons spaced over 12 years. It’s strange because of course it’s exactly the same show, but by watching it in those very very different ways it seems very different and I picked up on different things. 

When I watched it as seasons spaced out, I very much focused on the plot for just that season. The plots felt contained to that season with a few references to the plots from before. I also remember that I’d never really think about where character development would be going for the next season. Overarching plots over seasons, and most importantly character progression and where the characters were going seemed very very very subtle when I watched it so spaced out over so many years. Now seeing it all as one the overarching plot, the character development, and where the show in general is going seems way more overt. Because these things seemed more subtle when I saw it so spaced out, it was the plot of the season and specific episodes which seemed to be the most important thing so for instance, performing!Dean, Sam’s acceptance, destiel, all seemed way way more subtle (only in s12 did the subtlety appear way more blatant, and also having studied television was I viewing the show differently as well). Now I’ve seen the seasons in such a short space of time, these no longer seem at all subtle which is very very interesting. Because these types of viewing have been so different for me, I can’t help but wonder how the GA who hasn’t marathoned the show and have been watching it over many years view the character development and the things that appear more subtle when spaced out?

(sorry this was so so long, it’s just something that has really surprised me and has been playing on my mind since I’ve watched all seasons in 1 go for the first time)

thevagabondthoughts  asked:

(2) complete statements, which is pissing me off. We know how these two [Emilia and Kit] have been shrewdly debunking the fans about it. Do you have a list or link to these references/events? I just need them as solid proof to provide the next I read a nonsensical and shallow comment referring to their S07.E07 TBS interview. Fortunately some antis go into battle without really studying the premises of their claim. I would like to have the evidence when I get in. Thank you.

Hey my friend! Don’t let the antis get you down. There are going to be naysayers no matter what is written. I think that on the whole the response to the season was positive. We have to remember that people are trying to protect their image by being publicly squicked out about incest. Not everyone can be fantasy nerds like us haha. 

Even some of my friends in my real life are kind of weirded out when I try to explain it to them so I get why some of the cast is acting like this even if I don’t like it. 

If anything, D&D have finished season 8 and it was done before the finale. I doubt any outcomes will change based on public opinion or cast commentaries. And based on what we saw this season and know from book foreshadowing, I think Jon and Dany will stay together. 

Anyway, here is the BTS interview where Kit and Emilia act so grossed out. Although they seem clearly to be joking to me. 

And here is an article where they discuss it too. 

P.S. The first part of this ask apparently never made it to my inbox. Sorry!

Let’s be really honest. GoT after S4 has been shit and inconsistent. Even if Jonsa happened, it wouldn’t be to a satisfactory degree unless they go out with the scenery and music. Had we not been embroiled with J0nerys stans in a ship war, I’m sure they’d noticed the rather lacklustre building of their ship. GRRM will do either ship justice in the books and definitely 1000x better with more context and parallels.


At this point, there’s no point crying because we are stuck in this hell until season 8 finishes. When the show finishes, its only then we will know peace and go back happily reading fanfics and writing meta. The only anger that’ll be left is why couldn’t D&D have done more with GoT in general with more competence?

anonymous asked:

Oh no! Anything we can do to supply you with Hanella inspiration? You are so good at finding both of their voices and can write them true to character. You've got me hooked on a pairing I didn't even know I needed in my life. So thank you for this series 😘

Thank you, Anon, I’m glad you love the pair so much.

The only help I need is in finishing my season 8 AU and then I can knock on Hanella’s door and see if they want to come out and play.  The characters are just too different and I’m not good at multitasking in that way to stop to even attempt a drabble.  So, let me purge the current universe first and then I can think about returning to their world.

Dodgers Prove that Arizona is Inferior In Every Single Capacity

Dodgers celebrate with champagne, after learning that their last victory means they get to leave the shithole that is Arizona

————–

Admit it.

Going into the 2017 NLDS, you–trusted Dodger fan–were terrified.

The red hot Arizona Diamondbacks were on their way to Dodger Stadium, to continue the embarrassing freefall of their rival Los Angeles Dodgers. Nevermind that LA finished the season winning 8 of 10 games, that the pitching was relatively back to normal, and that the offense was slowly coming back around. The #narrative was that the mighty Arizona Diamondbacks were going to win.

And, in a sense, that prediction was perfectly understandable. Pundits and fans alike remember the back-to-back sweeps of the Dodgers merely weeks ago. Robbie Ray and Jake Lamb had joined Paul Goldschmidt as notorious all-time Dodger killers. The Diamondbacks outslugged Colorado in the wild card game, at least giving the impression that the bats would be anything but silent. It was dread time.

Except, it was not.

The Dodgers easily rolled their way to a sweep of mighty Arizona. It was a pleasant surprise for us Dodger fans, though in hindsight, we should have totally seen this coming when Bob Nightengale picked Arizona to go to the NLCS.

How dumb were we to even fret.

Anyhoo, the Dodgers curb stomped Arizona and knocked all of the DBacks’ precious teeth out on the sidewalk, though I guess a diamondback really only has like 2 fangs. Regardless, the curbstomping hurt.. Let’s compare series stats to show just how inferior Arizona was.

Runs Scored: LA 20, Arizona 11

LA finishes the NLDS with a 3-0 sweep, but the most important statistic–as I’ve learned in recent months–is that LA finishes the NLDS with a plus-9 run differential.

Plus-9 over a 3-game stretch comes out to the Dodgers winning each playoff game by an average of 3 runs. In the postseason, a 3-run victory is considered shitting all over the opponent. In a sense, the series was not even that close, considering that the Dodgers found times to jump out ahead by 5 runs in Games 1 and 2, and lead from start-to-finish in Game 3. In other words, Arizona scored about 5 runs that were pity-gifted to them this series.

Runs Given Up By Starting Pitchers: LA 7 in 15.1 IP, AZ 11 runs in 10.1 IP

The fearsome Arizona Diamondback rotation–consisting of big name ex-Dodger Zack Greinke and new Dodgers antagonist Robbie Ray–was supposed to make Drank cry. They instead made Drank cry with tears of joy and condescending laughter.

The Dodger starters gave up four less runs in 5 more innings. That’s a pretty significant difference. It’s such a big difference, that I have to point it out to show that Arizona really does suck at baseball compared to the Dodgers.

Playoff WHIP: LA 0.93, AZ 1.88

Dodgers pitching literally was giving Arizona half the earned baserunners as Arizona allowed LA. And we were supposed to take Arizona seriously?

Things to Do in Each Respective City/State: LA 3,583,192,190,999; AZ 3

Perhaps the biggest discrepancy in the AZ-LA playoff matchup was just how much more there is to do in Los Angeles.

Here, let’s make a partial list of things to do in LA. You could…. 1) sit on a beach, 2) eat a chili dog, 3) drive to Inglewood because it is within driving distance, 4) elect to not support 2 local NFL franchises, 5) go skiing and surfing in the same day, and 6) support a winning baseball team

You can’t do any of those things in Arizona, save the eating a chili dog (I believe some establishment in the Phoenix area sells this as a menu item). Let it be known that the 3 things there are to do in Arizona is to visit thousands of strip malls, eat a chili dog, and support a losing baseball team. That’s literally it.

Wins in the NLDS: LA 3, AZ 0

I just wanted to remind you all that the Dodgers swept Arizona in the NLDS, and that the Dodgers are still playing for a chance at the World Series. Arizona–on the other hand–is now on the same level as the San Francisco Giants and San Diego Padres, except with a way, way worse draft pick.

Go Dodgers.
