Finally put some thoughts together

Jackson is scared. He’s terrified. The most hurt he’s ever been and the most pain he’s ever felt was dealt to him by April. Why? Because he loves her more than anything so she has the power to kill him, and has before. Even after April’s big boo hop over Montana which was heartbreaking, no doubt, Jackson still doesn’t believe it can work out between them. Even though he loves her, even tho he wants to be with her, he believes they don’t see marriage, relationships, and commitment the same. And how could be? Last memo he got from April on that subject was that she can check out whenever she wants, physically, emotionally, and he just has to get with the program. No apology, no remorse for it. In his mind she truly thinks that’s okay and he can’t accept that for himself, even if it kills him to watch her leave. Time and again.

What can Jackson say to her at this point if in his breaking heart he doesn’t think they can work? Does he give her false hope? Wouldn’t that be more cruel? Or does he let her go, knowing it’s causing her pain to live with him? Knowing they’ll never work out when they aren’t on the same page of what “spend every day together until we die” means. I mean the man did try multiple times to get her to understand that and she wouldn’t. To Jackson, it’s just the way it is. A sad unfortunate fact of his life.

Now April.. I don’t think that’s even on April’s mind. I don’t believe she thinks if she just tells him she gets it now, that she’s so sorry and will never leave again, that he would 100% go all in with her. She believes he is over her and she is nothing more than his friend, baby mama and sometimes casual sex partner. I don’t think she realizes she holds the keys to the kingdom in her hands. If she would just tell Jackson that she wouldn’t hurt him again, he would be with her so fast your heads would spin.

And I truly don’t understand why so many people are quick to say Jackson has feelings for Maggie when to me it’s clear he doesn’t. He avoided her. He was awkward and uncomfortable with her. Meanwhile he’s chasing after April all episode to talk about what she said to Maggie because it’s simply not true. Then she tossed him a major curveball when she tells him she’s been in pain since Montana. The Maggie issue fell to the way side after that, but it still remains true that he doesn’t like her and was about to tell April that fact. And I don’t think Maggie likes him either. I think it’s a big case of everyone misreading the situation. Jackson thinks Maggie likes him and is weirded out. Maggie thinks he likes her and is weirded out. April thinks they like eachother and obviously not okay with that. And the truth is they don’t even see eachother that way.

It was the necessary plot point to get things rolling, open the flood gates that is Japril. April moving out is a good thing. Both she and Jackson will get a nice long look at what it is to really be apart and how much they need eachother. The actual heart of the matter, the reason they are not together. Things will have to be addressed, finally. And I think Maggie is going to end up being the facilitator of that. She’s going to see what’s really going on between them and try to fix it. That Jackson is terrified of being hurt again and that April believes something totally not true, that he just doesn’t love her anymore.

Anyway just some thoughts I had to get out of my head. I’m really excited about this storyline. Finally April and Jackson’s relationship takes center stage instead of being the elephant in the room for two seasons. The fact that they love eachother, want eachother, need eachother. That they are soulmates and meant to be. That’s what this storyline is and for the first time in a long time, I can’t wait for Thursday’s to come.

Also props to Sarah and Jesse for that scene. Wow. That’s the first heartfelt scene from Japril we’ve gotten in so long. Her heartbreak was palpable and his pain from realizing it was written all over his face. Truly beautiful performances.

You told us about Tristeva, tell us what do you think about Yumalia now

Alright, for the record, Tristeva was a special case. I don’t have near as much to rant about here, but I will give you what I’ve got. So, this ship. I’m not crazy about it. I totally understand why people are, and if they end up being canon together, I’m sure I will still adore it, but here’s how this goes.

I’ve already explained that I don’t like Amalia for the most part. I tried to like her in the first season. I wanted her to be my favorite, especially since my name is Amelia. But when she wasn’t fighting for their lives, she was being a generally terrible person, and I couldn’t believe this group had to put up with that. That said, in the OVA, she seriously developed as a character and a person. Like, wow. Talk about the huge burdens she took on her shoulders for everyone. Talk about her having to choose between her friends and her kingdom. It was heartbreaking to watch, and I loved every moment.

That said, I don’t know what Yugo saw in her up until now. I honestly feel like he might have just thought she was really pretty when he was younger (I mean hi she barely wore clothes at all) But Yugo is a smart and perceptive kid. I’m willing to take the argument that maybe he saw something in her that I couldn’t. Maybe he saw the potential in her that finally came out in the OVA. I like that idea a lot.

Other than that, the physical age difference is awkward, and I don’t see a way of it working out, but again. If it does, as long as Amalia keeps this change in attitude, I will be so happy for them. Outside of it working out though, I love seeing this ship be teased at for the meaning it holds for Yugo’s character and adding to the things that he’s experienced and learned.

And that’s pretty much all my thoughts on Yumalia.

((Also: “I’ve always wanted to save a princess” okay Yugo rip my heart out again please))

anonymous asked:

I know Japril has/had communication issues. I know that failure to communicate was a huge factor in their divorce. That being said, it is absolutely inconceivable to me that we're supposed to believe they never talked about Montana until the first episode of this season. They lived together at that time. They have a child. The last time they slept together while separated Jackson chased her throughout the hospital to force a conversation about it.

I totally agree. I also hate that Jackson seems so unaffected by April moving out. Jackson always cared about April whether they were friends or lovers, whether they fought or not.

At this point it is rather obious that the writers don’t care about the character Jackson Avery or his history. All they care about is how he fits into Maggie’s world.

This is a little weird for me to write because before you gave out this prompt, I never really thought about how much this person impacted me. Last year at the beginning of my freshman year in college, I met my two roommates for the year. While Helli was amazing, Vernesha -my other roommate - has impacted my life in ways I could not contemplate. At first, she was quiet and instropective while I was - am - a loud, bubbly person. We didn’t really mesh well but we certainly did not hate each other even in the least bit. I was binge watching Supernatural then and was at the season 4 marker I believe when she started listening in on the episodes. We never really talked so it took her a little bit to ask what it was and what it was about but she eventually did and I got very excited because, well, I am a total fangirl and raved to her about Supernatural for at least a couple of hours. She then started watching it on her own and from that point on the strongest friendship I made during my college years was forged (currently a junior). At first, Supernatural was the only thing we talked about but we would talk for hours about it but gradually she opened up and I found myself opening up beyond the ruse of my loud persona. My persona and my happy go lucky attitude was a front because I believed that if I pretended I was strong and happy then to an extent, I actually would be happy. And it does work but to a point. I never told anyone about my past and my overwhelming fears but I did to her, throughout these two years and oddly she knew exactly how to respond. First, she found out about my sexual assault back in freshman year of high school and read the signs that I hated to talk about how vulnerable it made me feel when I did talk about it (which was very, very rare) and she read that it had shaped me into becoming the callous person that comes out whenever I feel like there is any sort of attack against me. She listened to me tell people that I didn’t care about them - despite the fact that I did - and watched me cut off people completely because I was afraid. Which brings me to my next point, she also learned about the death of my best friend back in junior year of high school exactly 6 months after the death of my cousin, both of which have molded me into a person that hates attachments and connection and would rather have a 1000 acquaintances than 1 best friend. Because it hurt so much when you lose these people and so whenever I cut off or hurt people or convinced people that I didn’t care about them, she would listen and later that night we would talk and I would cry and she would listen and she would cry because she lost her mother to cancer when she was in 6th grade and I would listen. I would listen to her story; a story involving her deceased mother, abusive stepparent and stepbrothers, her constant worry over financials because she didn’t have anyone - never had anyone to stand beside her. And so I did. I did everything I could to help her just as she did for me. When she worked early mornings and studied all day for her scholarships, I would try and provide some comic relief and a quiet environment for her to work. Whenever she needed to rant of get something off her chest, I listened. It may not seem like much but it is the world to us. During the second semester of my freshman year of college, my family experienced severe financial struggles and suddenly I was thrust into a world I didn’t understand but she held my hand through the entire journey. Now I have a job and security, I never had a job before because I never needed to but she helped me secure the job and understand how the working world worked. Sometimes talking to her about it saved me from marching into the financial aid office and screaming my lungs off, possibly getting expelled in the process. She never is one to come out and be sappy about anything and she knew I didn’t want that. Every time I had a problem and I was clearly complaining without formulating a useful plan she would say and I quote, “Ree, get off that excuse wagon and start making a plan. You can get through this just like you got through everything else. Let’s go.” Even if I tried my hardest to cut her off like I did so many other people, I can’t. She is my best friend and I love her. I guess the love I have for her is stronger than the fear I have of losing her.
Now I don’t really know if in the instructions when it says on Tumblr, it meant posting the nomination on it or nominating someone that has an account on tumblr. She doesn’t but either way I felt like her story should be out there in the world and that I needed to write this. To recognize her impact on my life and to realize how grateful I am for her.
Attached is a picture of us on our pretend christmas day since we don’t have much of a christmas with our respective families.
And so, I nominate Vernesha Lawrence


So this was such an unexpected amazing night! My friend and I went to go watch “Below Her Mouth” at TIFF, and it was beyond amazing. Such a real, well written, and heartfelt film (everyone has to go see it if you haven’t yet!!!) Natalie and Erika were phenomenal, I can’t even begin to describe how well the portrayed their characters and how they brought the story to life. Incredible.

After the film, I met Natalie and Erika and they were super nice :) I talked to Natalie and told her that I loved her as Willa and she was like “oh my god yes, Wynonna Earp!” She was so genuinely happy to be recognized for that character it was so cute. I asked her if she were coming back for season 2 and she says she doesn’t know yet, but it’s a show about revenants and demons so you never know! And I was like “Yeah you could totally come back as a revenant! Emily got you ;)” LOL.

Then after my friend and I were just hanging around and I saw Dom!!! At first I didn’t believe it was her but omg it was. She watched the film as well and was talking with Natalie, so I waited after they were finished talking. Then Dom saw me and was like “Omg Shirley, hey!” And she came and hugged me and we just hung out and talked for a bit. We also talked about the film and Dom was joking around saying how Willa said she didn’t know (Waverly) was a gay in the barn scene and now she (Natalie) is playing a gay character in Below Her Mouth LOL. It was really cool because we were just chatting about stuff like friends :)

A great night turned into an amazing night. And I’m blessed to have met all three Earp sisters LOL

Ps. Can we please appreciate how great Dom looks with her braid?! And she was wearing heels, hence the height difference LOL

12x06 - Episode Review and Analysis

I know I am late to the game here, I have no doubt a lot of the below has been covered but here are my thoughts on the episode anyway. Tried out a different structure this time because there was so much going on I didn’t wanna miss anything out. 

Anyway, review and meta under the cut. This got very long.

Keep reading

do you think clarkes whole "i was being weak, its worth the risk" broke bellamys hear a little? And do you think he thinks she still feels this way? Do you think bellamy even know or thinks clarke cares about him? Yeah she trusts him, she's told him she's needed him but always made it about something else other then just needing HIM for him. What do you think bellamy thinks clarke thinks of him? Does he think she thinks they are just leaders? friends? allies? what

Originally posted by brave-clarke

Yes I think it broke his heart a little. He was totally committed to their partnership and I think she was the first person that he really felt a real connection to outside of his family, and it made him think she did not feel the same for him.

I think it might have been the root of his belief that Clarke doesn’t love him. Well, that’s my headcanon. That he loves her, but doesn’t believe she could ever feel that way about him.

I think season 3B is kind of her way of trying to show him that she does love him. I mean, she’s still scared of it, but she does love him and needs him and she is trying to make him understand that she cares, that he matters, that she won’t take the risk of losing him, that she needs him, that she trusts him, that she is all in. 

When she told him that she didn’t trust Roan, but instead, “I trust…you.” I think that was important to him. I think that was the first time in a long time that he got how important to her he is.

Ty for this meta! I was up till the morning & then started crying while reading it. Totally worth it. Anw, as you said, many of us, including me,had thought about this scenario. But now I really believe it. Actually the whole explanation fits with what i know from my studies at scriptwriting. Do think Emma will wake up at the end of 5b? Is she ready for that? Or maybe it depends on how many seasons the show will have?

Thanks for your message! I spent the first two days working on this crying myself to sleep over Emma not wanting to let go of her fairy tale parents. That was the worst of it for me. It’s interesting to put yourself in that headspace, actually.

Assuming that we’re right, it feels to me like we’re really invited into Emma’s experience. Henry’s trying to give Emma clues that she’s in a dream world, I think and we are getting more and more clues. We are supposed to start considering this very idea. And like Emma, we’re supposed to reject it until we can’t anymore. Or that’s the impression I’ve been getting.

A lot of the dialogue in 5A only makes sense as Emma interacting with the reality. Like her consciousness shifted and she’s slightly more aware of the dream - within the dream itself. Essentially, we had a lot of dialogue during 5A that didn’t seem to apply to the situation at hand. Now, in the first layer, the explanation came in what… episode 8 or 10? Emma was trying to alienate everyone, so she just said a bunch of confusing random stuff. While it explains away all the dialogue, I think we can agree that’s not how a misleading story is generally written. They mostly erased 8 episodes worth of content. The scenes were acted out in a way that conveyed something. The words were specific. You got the feeling they applied to some invisible situation. 

So to answer your question, I think Emma seems to be waking up and if we’re supposed to start guessing it, then they can’t hold off for too long with the reveal… So I think she may be waking up during 5B.

They have been giving us hints, like this one:

Is there any meaning behind Emma’s house number 710?
KITSIS: Yes. By the way, the meaning behind it is it’s the Grateful Dead House on Haight Ashbury, which is really for me and Josh Dallas. The rest of our fans don’t care about the Grateful Dead. Every once in a while, we’ll stick in an Easter egg just for us, so I don’t want our fans to start combing through what 710 means. If they’re interested, I would say start with “American Beauty” and then get some bootlegs.

Emma is dying, Killian needs Emma’s heart… the house he chooses for them is the “Grateful Dead” house. Pretty symbolic and a big clue.

If they can bring Hook (Colin O’Donoghue) back, is there a chance they can bring anyone else back?
HOROWITZ: Who said they can bring back Hook?
KITSIS: He may die there. To be honest, he’s already dead.
HOROWITZ: He may die harder.
KITSIS: He may rot there.

Which, again, if we are right, the real Killian already died in the real world and he only remains in Emma’s subconscious in the Underworld.

So, they’re pretty coy about it, they may want us to start wondering, which they wouldn’t do if they weren’t waking her up… Because of the liver transplant, she can get physically healthy again, so it’s the psychological aspect that’s keeping her in the coma dream. Not wanting to let go of her parents and her new life and family. So I guess that’s what we’ll see now…

Waking up doesn’t mean that the dreams will end. Everyone who was under a sleeping curse went back to the “burning room” after waking up from it. So she may wake up, but she won’t stop visiting the dream and the fairy tales. Everything can just continue.
