how is this show so flawless

on the new Iron Fist series

So after binge watching a ton of Marvel’s new Iron Fist series, I went onto tumblr, wondering what the fandom was up to now, what with all these new gifs and stuff to make. ‘Maybe I would find some fan art or something’ I thought innocently to myself,

BUT BOY WAS I WRONG

instead, I was greeted with SO MUCH DISCOURSE on how Iron Fist ‘needs a chinese-american actor’ or ‘has terrible dialogue and is slow’.

the best part is when I found out that some of y’all are trying to get this show boycotted like ‘????’

Now as a Chinese-speaking Asian female, living in Asia, with an Asian background and a good know-how of Chinese history, as well as a decent knowledge of comic books, (although I confess I got into the animated series first) I’m here to end the discussion before y’all get your full rage on and start fighting fans of the show like it’s Lord of the Flies up in here

So keep reading if you want to be educated or if you just want to fight me before you know what you’re even talking about

“THE SHOW INSULTS CHINESE CULTURE”

Uhhhh…no? I’ve seen a few episodes and I mean so far there isn’t really anything that screams ‘insult’ or even offensive in the slightest. Besides maybe the fact that they take the beliefs and twist them a little bit but honestly even that ain’t that bad as to what I’ve seen elsewhere.

I’ve read the boycott post and let me say that yea, they dressed him with an eye for Asian elements, but maybe that’s because it’s supposed to be resembling Asian clothing? I mean how is that offensive? Is it the part that it looks Asian? Or that you simply feel that white people that direct these shows should not be using Asian stuff for entertainment? Because I hate to break it to you but it’s still not offensive. Even the dragon tattoo is totally fine because it’s supposed to resemble Asian elements yea but also have y’all read the comics? Because he punched through a dragon and basically took it’s heart. So I mean a dragon tattoo kinda matches the theme.

I mean in the first episode they speak almost flawless Chinese for Pete’s sake! Hell, I was surprised that they even had it in them to have a non-Google translated line. Sure the accent was a little overdoing it cuz not even I have that thick a Chinese accent but I’ll excuse it since he was apparently learning and speaking 15 years. (I speak it maybe a few times a day for like the last 14 years or so only)

So no, the show doesn’t really insult Chinese culture, sure they might be ignorant, but you must understand that after generations of stereotypes and misconceptions that that can’t just go away with one show

“Danny Rand should be played by an Asian guy/be a Chinese-American”

I can’t even begin to tell you my frustration about this.

Y’all do know this show is based on the comics right?

You know, the one with the white guy.

I know Marvel is infamous for not including enough representation in their shows but seriously? This is like the Harry Potter thing all over again with Hermione being black, it’s not that we don’t want representation or anything, but it’s the fact that this hero that us comic fans have come to already love has been replaced. Or at least it feels like it. Like when a movie is made from a book and people go crazy because character XYZ suddenly has different traits or isn’t quite what was described as compared to the book.

Frankly, it sucks.

So even though yes, Marvel should have more Asians in their shows, don’t expect them to completely give the main character a makeover, even if the makeover was supposed to provide representation. And honestly? I don’t want them to change him because I really freaking love Iron Fist, just as he is.

“This show just villainizes Asians”

So you tell me that my race is being made villains because Marvel decided that most of their Asians on their shows are evil ninjas (aka the Hand) and at most there are like 3 sorta good Asians. Oh and I’m sorry, you want more Asian men that are good guys? You want a balance of Asian heroes?

Well I guess that would be kind of hard to fit into the story since, oh, I don’t know, everything happens in the USA?

If you want more Asian characters well then look no further because you do have them. Daisy Johnson from Agents of Shield? What about her extremely brave mom? Or maybe Colleen in Iron Fist? Everyone seems to be blatantly ignoring her badassery and only seeing the part where she’s a sorta love interest.

Facts are, there are Asian characters, you’re really just looking hard enough. I agree wholeheartedly when you say that more Asian men need to be in the Marvel universe that aren’t part of the bad guy team but you gotta say that they are still awesome.

Does anyone even remember the Japanese ninja yakuza guy from Daredevil? Dude got set on fire and STILL came back to kick ass. That’s a plus in my book because even though he’s considered bad, he’s been proven to be cunning, smart, and overall awesome.

“The show has terrible stunts/acting/dialogue/fight scenes”

From here on out it’s mostly just me trying to explain why the directors and writers of the show made decisions in the show to make it what it is, so let’s dive right into it.

  • STUNTS

Actually the stunts weren’t half-bad. If you’ve seen other shows or movies that are heavily reliant on stunts and action, and compare it to this show, they really aren’t that much different. Sure it might seem a little unbelievable sometimes like they’re breaking physics or something, but he already has a glowing fist. I think we’ve crossed the line of believable long ago.

  • ACTING

I have nothing to say about this except that go and take some acting or drama classes before coming and criticizing these awesome men and women who did indeed try their best

  • DIALOGUE

Now I get the dialogue might be a little weird at times and what not, but you must understand that this show was partially written with the Defenders series in mind. So almost everything that was said in the show is meant to lead to something more. Thus, you must take it as a bigger picture. Sorta like how everyone said that Fantastic Beast and Where to Find Them wasn’t as good as they thought it would be, that movie was also meant to lead on to a bigger story so you might want to excuse the weird speech and cryptic lines at times.

  • FIGHT SCENES & ACTION

Okay seriously people, please read the comics. Danny Rand is supposed to be an accidental hero, one that doesn’t want to fight unless he really has zero choice in the matter. So yea, the fight scenes won’t be that interesting, but only because the character in question is more interested in ending the fight than anything.

~

So there you have it, my whole slightly angry info-dump on Iron Fist and Marvel’s representation problem in general. If you want to correct me or scold me even then by all means message me or shoot me an ask. But just keep in mind that Marvel can’t make all your problems go away in one show, and please for the love of all that is good read the comics before coming to rant okay?

Oh my god, in last night’s Bob’s Burgers, Bob takes Gene to a laser light rock show at the planetarium (super important to Bob, because it was his favorite when he was a teenager, and this is the last night before they’re closing the exhibit because it’s old and no one goes anymore, also it’s Bob’s birthday), and Gene has no idea what he’s in for, but he gets pumped for it anyway ‘cause Bob’s so excited about it, and finally they get in there and they’re watching it, and Gene has a sensory overload and kinda starts freaking out ‘cause he can’t handle it, so Bob takes him out and they sit in the car for a bit.  Gene’s angry because Bob didn’t tell him it would be so loud and scary, so Bob offers to play the album for Gene at a normal volume, and Gene starts to enjoy it, so he reclines the seats, takes out the cigarette lighter, tells Gene to pretend it’s a laser, and starts drawing in the air, explaining the plot to him (it’s like a full on Pink Floyd or Rush-esque rock opera about a bunch of robot overlords telling rockers that they can’t play music anymore, and one Rebel rising against them).  Gene gets really into it and decides he wants to see the finale of the laser show (which Bob regards as a life-changing experience), so they sneak back into the planetarium (there’s no re-entry allowed) with a few tricks that parallel the story from the album, and watch the climax of the show together (Bob fashions some earplugs for Gene out of a napkin).  On the way home, Bob’s asking Gene how he liked it, and Gene says “I loved it!”, Bob asks him to speak louder ‘cause his ear’s are shot, and Gene yells, “I LOVED IT, DAD”.  Bob yells back “I love you too, Gene”.

I FUCKING!!! CAN’T!!! DEAL!!!! WITH HOW GOOD THIS SHOW IS!!! I know i don’t talk about Bob’s Burgers a lot but this show is flawless and charming and gross and funny all at the same time, the characters are written like people with actual fears and anxieties, and unlike a lot of comparable shows, the comedy doesn’t come from the family being pitted against each other, it’s always the family against the world… I love it, I love it, it’s so pure and refreshing and still somehow manages to be funny without sacrificing it’s heart, and I fuckin’ love it, please watch Bob’s Burgers holy CRAP okay I’m done.

There were too many good moments to choose from lol 

Long story short, Elounor is so fucking cute I love them so much BYE!

When I tell you that Nathan and Chyler are two of the most genuine people in the entire universe. I’m not exaggerating, not even a little bit. Nathan was telling us about how Chyler had nearly spent the whole day crying because of everything with her phone and her plane delays. How she was sitting on the plane, on the runway, waiting to take off so she could be there. He kept saying how it was gonna happen, she would be there. He stalled the whole concert as long as he could. Singing extra songs, taking longer breaks between songs, telling jokes, and telling stories. He had the fans keep checking her flight info and updating him. Chyler watched most of the show live through periscope while on her flight to NY. Nathan pulled multiple people up on stage to dance with him, sing with him, and periscope him and the crowd live to Chyler. Nathan kept saying stuff like, “She’ll be here. It’s gonna happen. Don’t worry. If we can’t stay in the venue, we’ll take it to the streets. Idk how NYPD will like that though, but that’s okay! We’ll stay until they take us away.” And you guys. Nathan has such a stellar stage presence. I was blown away. So Nathan finished his set and Chyler was just about to land and he told everyone he was gonna stick around and if we wanted to stay, we could. So everyone that stayed kind of loitered around and I was outside when Chyler arrived. She got out of the car and just bent over and let a huge breath of relief out. She told us she loved us and she’d be back in two seconds because she needed to go hug Nathan and then she legit TOOK OFF RUNNING to go see him. They are just so ;__; and then they came out and performed Nowhere and Love Lit the Sky and Nathan and Chyler both cried. Then they did a meet and greet. I had such an amazing conversation with Nathan about everything from his shows to his kids and it was just awesome. He was telling me about how him and Chyler do this for us, the fans. He doesn’t hear himself when he sings, he hears us. He made sure I got in to see and talk to Chyler and they both hugged me and signed my shirt. Chyler is so sweet and her skin is freaking flawless. They were there until like 5am even though Chyler was running on 2 ½ hours of sleep, solely because they wanted to see and meet every single person that stayed.

Top 5 kageyama tobio moments? :0

 Hi there, anon! Thank you for asking for the top 5 moments of one of my favorite characters on Haikyuu!!

I sense this turning into another top 10 because I have absolutely no self-control.

Anyway, here we go (in no particular order):

1. “You don’t win alone. That’s just how it is.”: This moment was really important to me. For Kags to come to this acceptance and even admit this must have been painful, but a true growing moment. That wistful look in his eyes, even in the anime, makes me tear up more than any conspicuously sad moment in the show.

2. This really cute dance (look at our baby so awk so adorbs): When they find out about the barbecue OMG.

3. When he tries so goddamn hard: With the best intentions, but not always the desired results.

4. Every jump serve like, hot damn: Like, I feel like half the show’s budget goes in making Kageyama Tobio look absolutely flawless in everything he does.

Originally posted by mintsky-a

gotta include another gif because seriously, hot damn.

Originally posted by ofalltheicecream

5. “As long as I’m here, you’re invincible.”: There’s always this talk about how Hinata is 100% trusting of Kags, but no one ever talks about how Kags puts so much trust in Hinata’s abilities (like, we were at “I’ll only toss to those valuable to the team” and now we’re at this moment). He definitely had to take a leap of faith to get here.

Yep, this is going to become a top 10 moments post OMFG

6. Every moment in which Hinata successfully riles him up: But this one is one of my faves because Hinata is actually imitating him here. Their push-and-pull dynamic always makes me laugh.

7. This obvious lie: OMFG Kags, you gotta work on your fibbing skills first.

8. LMAO that time he absolutely botched his line: They’ve gone from this moment to that moment in Season 3 when Tsukki verbally compliments Kags with “Really, great job, King.” My babies have come so far *wipes eyes*.

St. Petersburg headcanons

I’m 100% sure we’re going to have yoi s2 announced soon but I’m still not over the fact Yuuri and Victor are living together in St. Petersburg WOW

  • for the first two weeks, they’re inseparable? I mean they’re literally so excited to live together (and to be together after some time apart due to Nationals probably)
  • they go everywhere together, to the practice, grocery shopping, walking Makkachin, sightseeing (Victor is so happy to share his city with someone he cares about!)
  • Victor gets a heart attack every time he enters a room and sees Yuuri there. Yuuri making tea in the kitchen. Yuuri on the sofa scrolling through his phone. Yuuri in the bathroom brushing teeth. Yuuri at the morning wearing Victor’s old t-shirt. Yuuri sleeping beside him.
  • just Yuuri looking as he belongs there, it kills Victor in the best way possible
  • Yuuri never misses a chance to see Victor’s proper practice because he’s admired him all of his life and he can’t get enough of that. it feels weird at first, watching Victor falling and doing boring routine exercises but he knows that this Victor, who makes Yakov mad ten times a practice and searches for Yuuri after every nailed jump just to blow him a kiss is much more wonderful than the distance living legend that looked at him from all the posters
  • Yuuri was never so inspired by Victor as he is now and he can’t wait to win Worlds to show him just how much
  • Victor feels exactly the same way about Yuuri, he’s never worked so hard before but he just wants to prove to the whole world that Yuuri is the best thing that happened in his life
  • it’s the constant competition during their training sessions too, about who will nail more jumps and do more flawless figures, and making silly bets and rewarding each other with kisses
  • they’re usually too tired to cook so they eat outside or order something but Victor is a morning person and he likes to get up earlier to prepare them breakfast (he sometimes takes Makkachin for a walk and buys fresh bread from around the corner)
  • Yuuri sometimes comes back earlier from the rink to make them something warm for dinner. he’s not that good with cooking but living in Detroit teached him some basic surviving skills and he feels a bit guilty about Victor spending twice as much time on ice
  • it’s not always honeymoon, of course, there’s always something stupid to get irritated and argue about and they can both be really stubborn when it comes to it but their silent days never last longer than a couple of hours
  • (they always say sorry before going to sleep even if they’re still a bit angry)
  • Yurio hates when they’re arguing because the next day they’ll be even more affectionate than usual and it’s already hard to focus since Yuuri trains in Petersburg
  • the closer the competition the louder Yuuri’s anxiety is and Victor gets nervous both for Yuuri and because he’s afraid he’ll not have the comeback he imagined and they’re both just tired
  • if things between them get too tense one of them will go for a walk to calm down and come back with flowers while the other will prepare something hot and sweet to drink so they could sit together and try to talk about it even if they’re rubbish in admitting their worries and fears
  • it always comes to the simple fact they are having the best time of their lives and they’ll never say it aloud but neither of them imagines it could ever come to end

woah it’s so long and I’m only getting started remember you may always request more

BTS reaction to their idol crush showing interest in them

Ah, I’m so sorry it took me practically forever to get to this ;-;

I hope you still enjoy it though! c:


Rap Monster (Namjoon):

Namjoon would be backstage with the rest of BTS at a music show, watching your performance in awe and amazement. As the music would echo through the venue, he would watch your powerful movements, his eyes fixated completely on you, wondering how you could pull off such difficult choreography and still look flawless in the process. The other boys would nudge each other, chuckling and giggling to themselves as they would glance over at Namjoon who would still be completely mesmerised by you. 

The truth would be, he would have had growing feelings for you for a few months now, falling for not only your good looks, but also your lively personality, the way you lit up the atmosphere of the room as soon as you walked in. The way you were always smiling and staying strong, even through difficult times. Plus it would be an added bonus that you were a natural beauty. “No wonder practically everyone has a crush on her,” he’d muse to himself, as you watched you take centre stage, capturing the attention of everyone there.

So, when your performance finally ended, the audience would roar up in applause, the lights on stage going out and so allowing you and your group to exit the stage. Namjoon would finally snap out his trance, vigorously clapping and bowing politely as you walked by. While the rest of your group smiled and thanked everyone before walking onward, you’d linger behind, looking directly at Namjoon as your lips curled up in a genuine smile. His heart would skip a beat, a curious expression forming on his face as he’d look around to ensure it was him you were looking at. You’d walk up to him, and before long, the two of you would be deep in conversation, to the complete surprise (and slight jealousy) of the other males idols around. Though Namjoon would act chill about the whole situation, his heart would feel like it was about to burst out his chest in joy, and so when you’d say your goodbyes and walk away, Namjoon would stand there, a grin etched on his face and the other members would pat him on the back and cheer for him. 


Jin (Seokjin):

You would be part of a popular girl group under BigHit Entertainment, and although you would’ve just debuted only a few months ago, your powerful style and sheer talent would attract attention worldwide. Being under the same entertainment company as BTS, you would often bump into them; on your way to practice, on your way out, even when coming in to record.

Jin would notice how cheerful you always were, always greeting the staff enthusiastically, and always putting 100% into everything you did. He’d appreciate your hard-working nature, your strong work ethic inspiring him to work harder. He would admire your seemingly effortless beauty, from the way your smile seems to shine brighter than the sun, immediately lifting the atmosphere, and improving the mood of everyone around you. The way your hair would tumble down your shoulders, bouncing around as you walked along. The way your eyes would light up, a small sparkle dancing across your pupil when you danced or sang.

So, one day on his way into practice, he’d notice you humming along with your earphones in, your hair swinging around in a cute ponytail as you’d throw your bag down into a corner, sliding your jacket off your shoulders and you’d prep for a long day of practice. You’d quickly adjust your hair, only to look up and see Jin standing by the doorway, a small smile tugging at the corner of your lips and you’d beckon him to come in.

“What, me?” Jin’s facial expression would contort into one of both surprise and curiosity, as you’d beckon him to come into the room. He’d tilt his head to the side, a little like a puppy, which would cause you to giggle and stroll up to him, grabbing his hand and pulling him in. His heart would flip inside his chest, a smile forming on his face as you would endearingly grin up at him.

You would be a solo artist, one of the most charismatic and successful female rappers in this present age. You’d never fail to get the audience hyped at your performances, lights flashing as you’d jump around the stage, the audience roaring and dancing along, as you (pretty much) spit fire from your vocal chords, rapping at seemingly the speed of light. Yoongi would admire you since your debut, clearly impressed by your rapping prowess. 

On the other hand, you would also be an avid fan of Yoongi himself before you debuted. You’d admire his amazing song-writing skills, always listening intently to the lyrics of every song of his and of Bangtan’s. You would look up to him, and so your own style of rapping would have a lot of elements of Yoongi’s style also, from his flow to even how he shut down haters.

During a music show one day, you’d be preparing for your performance, which would be straight after BTS’ performance, staring intently up at the screen while make-up artists would rush around the room, make-up products lying everywhere. During Yoongi’s verse, a grin would creep up onto your face as you’d admire his sheer talent, feeling your body moving along to the beat. When their performance would finally end, and you’d move backstage, mentally preparing yourself to perform. As BTS would walk past, you’d bite your lip anxiously, debating whether to say anything or not. 

“Ah, Yoongi sunbae?” You’d call out, causing him to stop in his tracks, looking over at you curiously. “I was wondering if you had any tips for me before I went on stage?” You’d ask, as you fiddled with your hands behind your back. 

“Uh, sure,” Yoongi would smile, pretending like his heart wasn’t soaring in his chest. He’d feel so happy that you came to him for advice, not Rap Monster, not J-Hope, but him. “So, what you want to do is…”


J-Hope (Hoseok):

Hoseok would grin down at his phone, his eyes skimming over the text you had sent him.

You: Hey is this Hoseok?

Hoseok: Yeah who is this?

You: Ah this is (Y/N)? From (Y/G/N)? I was wondering if you could help me with some choreography, knowing how amazing you are at dancing haha

“Ah, what should I do? What do I do?” Hoseok would pace around the room, trying to work out what to text back to seem cool. “Namjoon, what should I say to her?”

“Just tell her, yes, you’d love to help, and arrange a time and place,” Namjoon would laugh, shaking his head with a smirk. “Clearly she admires you, calm down and stop freaking out Hobi.”

He’d take a deep breath, before sending;

Hoseok: Ofc, I’d love to help, when do you wanna meet? ^^

“Phew,” you’d sigh in relief, your heart doing somersaults when you’d realise that you were actually going to meet him, one on one. While you could use some help with your choreography, this was also partly an excuse to spend some time with him, as you would admittedly have had growing feelings for him since the time you first met him.

You: Is Friday good? At around 12 maybe?

He wanted to help you, so why were you feeling so nervous?

Hoseok: Yeah thats perfect, see you then ;)

“Do you think the winky face was too much?” Hoseok would dramatically press his hand against his forehead, a long sigh escaping his lips.

Namjoon would simply hit him playfully, assuring him that everything was going to be fine.

Jimin would stand in front of the mirror, practising what he would say to you, how he would act. He’d push his hair back, smirking in an attempt to look suave, but this charade would only last a few seconds before he’d scrunch his eyes up in embarrassment, giggling at himself, shaking his head.

“Are you still freaking out?” Yoongi would smirk, leaning against the door frame, holding his fist to his mouth as he’d try to suppress his laughter. 

“Hyung!” Jimin would whine, still giggling as he’d push Yoongi out the bathroom, brushing his fringe out of his eyes. He’d sigh, anxiously looking down at his phone, anticipating a text from you.

**

You’d pace around your dorm room, nervously chewing on your lip as you’d glance around at all the clothes scattered around. “What should I wear, Lisa? Casual? Or should I dress up? Heels or flats?” You’d wave about five different items of clothing in your best idol friend, Lisa’s face, as she’d step back, laughing as she’d wave her hands. “Aren’t you the one who asked him out, (Y/N)? Why are you freaking out so much?” She’d laugh.

“Girl,” you’d put your hands on your hips, looking at Lisa with an expression of disbelief. “Have you seen Park Jimin? Ah, he’s so…” Your lips would curl up in a smile at the thought of him, causing Lisa to hit your shoulder, laughing.

(A/N: That last paragraph is low-key how I feel about Jimin ;-; He’s been wrecking my bias list recently, I’m so sorry Tae ;-;)


V (Taehyung):

Originally posted by taehanstic-baby

Taehyung would look around when you’d approach him, looking a little like a lost puppy. “Is… she talking to me?” He’d ask, his mouth stretched into an O-shape as he realised it really was him you were addressing, despite all the idols sitting at the tables.

While he would be flattered that you’d chose to talk to him, he’d be a little confused as to why him, and not all the other handsome male idols in the room that most girls would kill to even make exchange greetings with. After all, you were one of the most popular female idols in the present age, known not only for your stunning visuals, but also for your amazing voice. So why him?

Despite this, once you took a seat next to him, a pretty smile on your face, he’d relax, and the two of you would hit it off almost immediately, talking about everything and anything, the conversation flowing from topic to topic effortlessly. 

Truth is, you wouldn’t have given much thought about all the others who’d approached you before, trying to act suave as they’d attempt to talk to you. You’d simply politely greet them, turning them down gently so as to not come off as rude. But when you’d see Taehyung sitting there, a rectangular smile on his face as he interacted with everyone in the most enthusiastic way, you wouldn’t be able to help the grin that would creep onto your face, tilting your head slightly as you watched.

You’d exchange numbers, giving him a hug before you walked off again, leaving a blush creeping up on his face while his group members would all simultaneously cheer for him, as he’d press his hands to his flushed cheeks.


Jungkook:

Jungkook wouldn’t know what to do with himself when he’d see you walking towards him, especially as he’d glance around to see the slightly jealous expression on the faces of the other idols, who were also waiting backstage. He would have had growing feelings for you for a while now, but he wouldn’t know what to do, whether to approach you, or whether to just keep quiet about it, leaving his feelings to bottle up out of control.

You’d approach him, touching his shoulder as you’d greet him. He would open his mouth to say something, only to close his mouth again when he’d realise he had no idea what to say, or how to greet you. You’d giggle at his awkwardness, instead deciding to take lead of the conversation, talking about pretty much anything, from their comeback, to other idols you looked up to. He’d eventually begin to relax, a grin beginning to appear on his face as you’d talk. He’d finally join in with the conversation, laughing and chatting along. 

The other boys would glance over at him, some of them holding their hands to thier mouths, laughing yet surprised at the same time that Jeon Jungkook, out of all people, was actually holding a successful conversation with a girl for once without finding an excuse to run away.

“Wow, our Kookie has really grown up, huh?” The boys would comment in awe, as they stared at the two of you, deep in conversation.

We all think of Sana as someone who doesn’t care about what people think of her but today’s clips really made me think;

In this scene;

Sana didn’t seem okay yes we have seen are upset a few times recently but this time it really broke our hearts seeing Sana so down.

Everyone is insecure it’s a thing all humans have.

What if Sana was comparing herself to Noora in this scene? comparing how Noora is’ flawless’ and how she always has guys falling for her. 

At first, the fandom was eh about Yousana because we didn’t really know Yousef or how these two acted around each other but honestly this clip showed that they do have some feelings for each other

The only time we saw Sana smile in this clip was when Yousef talked to her and she tried to not look at him but she couldnt.

Everyone has soemone in their life who makes them happy who makes them smile.

I’m not saying “Sana needs a man to be happy” but Yousef makes her smile and doesn’t ignore her and he knows how to make her smile (Yes Even & Isak do too)

The point of this post was that Sana is insecure she doesn’t show it but she it because of shes a normal human.

The other point was that Yousef and Sana do have feelings for each other but haven’t talked about it yet.

anonymous asked:

I recently found out that Juggead was supposed to be deaf/hard of hearing in Riverdale. Please please please do something with that

Awesome, that would’ve been so interesting.
**

He was the outcast, the loner, the kid from the wrong side of the tracks, and to top it all off? He was the only deaf individual in all of Riverdale. He was affectionately labeled the moody deaf boy from the south side, an accurate description of his miserable life.

He had no friends, no one took the time to get to know him and why should they? He couldn’t hear, he was a mess, didn’t have the money for those expensive hearing aids the doctors were always talking about. All in all he didn’t have much going for him. He used to be best friends with Archie Andrews, captain of the football team and resident lady killer, but that was all before Jughead had started losing his hearing. Archie couldn’t handle the stress, he didn’t have enough patience, no one did, not even his own mother, she had walked out on him and his father as soon as they told her the prices for the hearing aids, she knew they wouldn’t be able to afford it and she felt like a failure, the guilt drove her away, well at least that’s what his father said.

So that’s what brought him to his current situation, alone at his lunch table buried in a book as students shuffled past to find their friends. It was nothing new, same routine for the past three years, nothing ever changed. Well that was until today.

He felt her sit before he even had the chance to look up, Betty Cooper, All American girl next door, perfect in Every way, the most beautiful girl in school, and she was currently sitting across from him, her gorgeous smile temporarily blinding him. This was the weirdest situation he had ever been in, perhaps he was dreaming.

“Hi, can I sit here” she signed effortlessly, smiling at him the entire time. Wait how did she…

“It’s okay if I can’t, I was just wondering” she signed again, her smile dimming slightly as she moved to stand, Jughead shook his head quickly

“You can stay.” Jughead said aloud, his voice hoarse from not being used all day. Teachers assumed he couldn’t speak so they never called on him, in actuality he could speak perfectly fine, he was 14 when he went deaf, he learned to speak well before that. Who was he to question his teachers choices?

Betty lowered herself slowly, almost cautiously now. “What are you reading?” She signed, her eyes curious as she tried to peek at the book. Jughead lifted the old novel, showing her the cover “in cold blood” it read

“Oh” Betty said aloud before finishing her sentence in sign language “I love that book! It’s so good!”

Jughead nodded suprised at her literary knowledge but also at her almost flawless sign language. He could read lips fairly well but sign language was much easier for him to understand and he had never met anyone other than doctors and therapists, who spoke in sign language it was amazing to him.

“How do you know sign language?” He finally asked, raising a brow as she blushed slightly

“I’ve been learning it for about two years” Betty signed “I’m actually pretty good” she boasted.

Jughead nodded “why? Why did you learn?” He questioned.

This time Betty spoke, her eyes downcast
“When I found out… about what had happened, I wanted to learn. I wanted to do something to help and this was all I could think of.” She looked back into his eyes and smiled slightly before signing “it took much longer than I expected”

Jughead laughed
“It’s tricky, why did you wanna learn this… for me?”

Betty nodded quickly
“I know what it’s like to have no one to talk too, I know what it’s like to have the only voices you hear be the ones in your brain, no one should have to go through that alone.” She mouthed.

Jughead felt his chest ache as his mouth went dry, that was exactly how he felt, how could she relate so realistically to him? He shook his head of his thoughts looked back at the blonde who was smiling shyly
“Well… Thankyou.”

Betty smiled brighter this time

“Of course, actually I was thinking, the bijou is holding a silent movie double feature tonight and I don’t know anyone who would appreciate that more than you! I think it would be awesome if you could come with me, that is if you want too” she signed it quickly and effortlessly, she really must have practiced quite a bit, when she saw him smiling she reached over the table and grabbed his hand hesitantly. Looking down in surprise he flexed his fingers and wrapped them around her own

“Okay” he whispered.

Five years later after the success of his novel, & the New York Times dubbing him one of the greatest up and coming young authors to hit the books, he found himself, fingers wrapped around that same hand in the tiny doctors office in Riverdale.

“Okay Mr.Jones, are you ready for me to turn them on?” The doctor asked smiling excitedly. He felt his blonde fiancé practically bouncing in her seat behind him as she leaned her curious eyes over the desk

“Okay” he whispered, smiling.

And when the world got too loud, he just held onto Betty Coopers hand and it all seemed to quiet. just the right amount.
