I HAVE THOUGHTS ABOUT THE FACT THAT BELLAMY’S GUARD JACKET MOST LIKELY DID NOT MAKE IT TO SPACE

Okay okay okay so I have been waiting for this moment FOREVER ! 

I HATED that jacket. Seriously. Despised it.

It’s highly symbolic, in the same way that Clarke’s Season 3 costume was highly symbolic. That guard jacket? It makes Bellamy a follower. Even though he isn’t, and we know he isn’t, a guard is a soldier, and a soldier follows orders. We saw how following orders went for Bellamy in Season 3 and it wasn’t nice.

But Bellamy’s character arc this season was all a lead-up to him eventually leaving Clarke behind on Earth and becoming a leader in his own right, on the Ark 2.0. HOWEVER, in order to become that fully rounded leader, first he had to learn how to rely less on his heart, and 413 showed us the progression and “completion” (let’s be honest, a character’s arc is never actually complete but moving on) of that development.

It is NO coincidence that we see Bellamy holding the bottle that Jaha - the Chancellor of the Ark - left behind in space. It is called “The Baton”. Symbolically, the baton of leadership has been passed from Jaha on to Bellamy (at least in space).

And you know what major piece of Bellamy’s costume the past two seasons was missing?

Exactly. That fucking horrible guard jacket.

I doubt they would have brought that in the rocket. It makes sense that Bellamy would have left the symbol of him as a follower behind on Earth … for it to burn. 

Bellamy has ascended the role of being just a soldier, and officially moved on as the leader (even if it’s technically unofficial, yet accepted fact among the space squad) of a new caste - not Sky People, not Grounders, but his TRUE people: the remainder of the delinquents, and the outcasts.

skateboards bc they fit his aesthetic more but he’s also a fan of longboards bc his older brother had one and gave it to him before he went to college. he thinks pennyboards are p rad but isn’t particularly invested in them

“Dear younger me,
If I knew then what I know now
Condemnation would’ve had no power
My joy my pain would’ve never been my worth
If I knew then what I know now
Would’ve not been hard to figure out
What I would’ve changed if I had heard…

Dear younger me
It’s not your fault.

You are holy
You are righteous
You are one of the redeemed
Set apart a brand new heart
You are free indeed

Every mountain every valley
Thru each heartache you will see
Every moment brings you closer
To who you were meant to be!”

How wonderful it is to discover that you are loved!  When you thought you were alone, to find that you are wanted!  To know that all along there were those who believed you were great!

@merlinsmushrooms had this song on a playlist for Cedric and I just couldn’t stop thinking about it so have some art.

The "Cancelled Until Further Notice" USO tour is finally back on! Steve goes back on the road in order to raise money for a timely cause.

I’m taking us way back to this prompt fill from who knows when!

~~

It was only a couple stops in on his renewed tour that Steve (with Pepper’s know-how) switched tactics (a little) and shifted to promote wellness activities for the elderly instead of just ways to help them vote and access local civic services.  

The man he’d met (Arthur, he’d learned) that was in the very first photo that went viral had said something that had stuck with Steve – the seniors had to find a way to get to the services they needed, rather than the other way around, or even meeting halfway.  

He’d been doing some research between tour locations and a number of places around the world had started to combine senior housing with student housing or senior centers with preschools.  Steve loved the idea and was determined to raise enough funding and public interest to get several similarly structured locations off the ground in New York.  

With every then-and-now photo that was published and every visit he made covered by some sort of media, he inched closer to his goal and in his spare time he arranged calls or (when possible) meetings with city planners and developers and educational administrators and care providers.

It was little more than a year later when a preschool-senior center opened up in Queens.  Steve was there for the grand opening, and to watch Arthur and a little girl with pigtails do a puzzle together.  

This might be nothing but what is up with Jon remembering Sansa singing ‘you know nothing’ while brushing out Lady’s fur then Ygritte always saying ‘you know nothing’, Jon Snow’??? Is it a coincidence Jon meets a redhead that says that to him?
