The Only Thing Worth Remembering About From 2015:the rebirth of “Larry Stylinson” & watching them rise.
“Harry and Louis are the Stevie and Lindsey of the mermaid-tattoo-era stadium-rock eye-contact game. Louis’ eyes are dark, intense, controlling, with a surly "damn your love, damn your life” edge. Harry’s eyes say “I hear the darkness you’re expressing and it’s important to me but my heart tells me to twirl right now,” so he twirls and touches his hair. The brooding look vs. the beatific twirl. When one of them gets happy, the other gets wistful. When one of them gets bitchy, the other gets sugary. I could watch them sing together for hours. I could probably watch them do laundry for hours. (I doubt they do laundry.)“ - Rolling Stone Magazine (2015)
“There is a place for everyone in our universe And you my friend are far from home But me? I’m right where I want to be” —- I’m so sorry for the long ass post and for another sappy klance pic with lame quotes!! (I made up the quote for those who are wondering!) I am a slut for keith feeling like he’s finally home with his space family and of course with lance lol
you know, i’m usually chill and do not Care about what the latest problematic™ thing is in this fandom or what new/old discourse is happening, but since it has reached me and i do care about this….
it appals me that, in this unnecessary j/lec vs m@lec ‘’war’’, and after the ‘issue’ of jace’s behavior towards alec in s1 has been brought up, i had to read with my own eyes something like ‘’after all magnus has treated alec better than jace ever did’’ …….
and i just want to say, everyone ships whatever they want and prefer whichever character, but for a fandom that has been so butthurt at any breaching of canon, how has this very crucial, important, canonicalsoul-bond between jace and alec lost its meaning and is so often reduced to ‘’brothers’’ or ‘’unhealthy/problematic/whatever’’ instead of regarding it as the very complicated, multifaceted and long-standing bond that it is??? outside of the ships, but as this relationship that is of such importance for BOTH characters in-canon????
as in, (and i repeat, please don’t read this as a competition/comparison to further a ship war instead of the contextualization that i’m trying to make) alec and magnus have known each other for less than two months at best, and their ‘’road’’ to each other has also not been all rainbow and roses,
(on the matter of that quote of magnus treating him better than jace,
has everyone conveniently forgotten that they’d seen each other twice before he acted all salty over alec’s marriage as if they’d been together for years?? and i don’t say this as hate for god’s sake,
i’m giving the other perspective and reminding that none of those characters are perfect and if you start blindly judging and overly criticizing one, know that there is content for the others too)
while jace and alec for TEN years - in those years we know they became friends, best friends, family, parabatai - so to say ‘’…than jace EVER did’’
as in judging jace and alec’s relationship out of the FRACTION that we’ve SEEN of the time that they’ve known each other??? (and in this case even less than that, only s1, because s2 is a whole different matter???)
thay HAVE their drisagreements, their ups and downs,
(and honestly, whoever has someone they care about, have you…always been perfect with each other, never argued, hurt each other, accidentally or not?? and after, you just stop caring?? -i’m obviously not talking about abuse here-)
and, as of one of my recent posts, i’m the first to criticize and not like jace’s behavior in s1, but as other people have said in my replies, this is also something that has an explanation that is very complex (re: his abusive past) which is also something that i actively chose not to delve into because i’m not a jace expert, i don’t relate to him as i do alec so i often don’t get his behavior, especially in s1, so other people should definitely talk about that, but even then, to stay stuck at that point of their dynamic erases the fact that any relationship of whatever kind is a two-way street and both jace and alec have been in conflict with the other and have treated the other not in a stellar way, no matter who was ‘’right’’ or not (and the fact that they’re both two emotionally stunted people didn’t help them deal with it in a ‘’healthy’’ way)
so to try and see only the negative aspects, erase how at the core of their differences was and is always this deep love and care for each other as two people that chose to tie themselves together for life, is a cruel disservice to this very special and meaningful bond.
I’m probably gonna get some shit for this but I’ll post it anyway.
A lot of people are arguing about who should take responsibility for Lincoln’s death. Some are saying Bellamy and some Octavia but I think it’s important to look at the situation like this. Lincoln’s death was caused by a chain a reaction of events that culminated with his death. Each of those events was set in motion by something another character did, hell if we looked back far enough we could blame the entire series on The 100 being sent to Earth in the first place.
My point being, we shouldn’t be completely blaming or absolving any characters of the responsibility of Lincoln’s death and we should acknowledge all of their decisions lead to this.
For example, Bellamy was semi-responsible for Pike rising into power which in turn caused a chain of events that lead to Lincolns death.
Octavia too stopped Bellamy from helping save Lincoln which also caused a chain of events which lead to Lincoln’s death.
I could even blame Abby and Kane for holding an election which got Pike elected and lead to a chain of events that caused in Lincoln’s death.
Not to mention, Lincoln did sacrifice himself which is important to keep in mind.
tl;dr: None of them are innocent, they all played a role in what happened and we should acknowledge that.
I will probably get shit from posting this but I’m gonna say it anyway.
I don’t really ship Will and Riley. I mean, I know they’re probably going to end up together but it did not give me enough fire to become really emotionally invested in them. When they kissed, my reaction was just “eh. Okay.”
Unlike Kala and Wolfgang. The moment they saw each other, I KNEW there was something. There was a spark, a fire, and boy, did it spread like wildfire. I became invested in them immediately. Maybe because of their differences that got me, or maybe because there was a build-up, a tension that really suspended me.
If anyone is going ask me, I’d just say that I will prefer shipping Kala and Wolfgang anytime over Will and Riley.
