without even thinking, i jumped up and threw my arms around him, making some weird sound that combined laughing, choking, and crying. he was holding me so tightly that i couldn’t see his face, but it was a really long time before he let me go.
"it's a joke" because of these jokes bts antis have jumped their asses and spread rumors about jimin, we fucking opened the door and basically said 'have a seat'. i legit read a tweet the other day along the lines of "jimin's hobbies include starving himself and being an ugly racist". what's next? jungkook sitting besides those girls from ahl lookin nervous and shit with a caption "jk's a misogynist"? knetz are aware of this shit and don't like it one bit cause bts are already hated on so much.
THANK YOU ANON EXACTLY. it’s like a ripple effect and these people who say they’re “fans” really don’t think twice about what they’re doing ;_; I really don’t like it :(((( why do something that harms bangtan, I don’t understand.
I need some clarification because I'm confused. I don't get how people are blaming Fitz directly for actions in the Framework. They made it abundantly clear that it isn't him, its a program an algorithm that Aida created and plays with constantly to best suit HER desires. Fitz, our Fitz, isn't cognizant of any of this, the only people who are, are Daisy Jemma and Radcliffe. He doesn't really have a choice until what is now his unconscious mind starts to break free of the program, 1/2
like Coulson and now May, because Aida can just rewrite it again. Or am I just completely misreading (deaf watch with captions) everything they’ve said in the show? Any help you can give is appreciated. Is this just a case of people think in B&W instead of greyscale?
I don’t think you are misreading it at all and agree. The first thing is every time we have a story like this there are people who aren’t fans of the character its happening too that will jump on it. We had it last season with Daisy when she was Hived. And with Daisy we SAW it happen. We watched as the parasites went into her. She did not have a choice in her actions.
The other thing is we have had them contradict themselves. At first it seemed like a glaring plot hole but then I took a step back. Laid out the facts. And had a lovely all caps conversation with CTT and put the pieces together. Because you hit the nail on the head. This is now AIDA’s world. Everything and everyone in it is working towards her goals. And that is whatever the Darkhold is showing her what to do. And for that she needs Fitz.
And here is the thing, because of the story they are telling here Fitz would be working on it one way or another. They chose to go with the total brainwashing/reprogrammed/manipulated route. The other way they could have done it and I for one would have been upset had the did it? AIDA kidnapping Jemma as well and using her life as leverage to get him to do it.
AIDA said it was all on algorithms and she is a computer that can process those faster. So AIDA knew exactly what variables she had to adjust to get the outcome she needed. Essentially its you have a math problem and the answer needs to be 48…you plug in the numbers you have too, how you have too to get that answer. Now there are lots of ways to go about it but you choose the way you prefer/works best for you. Because she had other variables in play as well, ie the hostages fixes. She had to have those in account when she adjusted other things. Again this was ALL TO GET THE OUTCOME SHE NEEDED.
Once AIDA had the equation right she applied it and dropped the hostages into the mix and filled in the false memories. And what we need to look at is HOW FAST they are all shaking it. Though they have new memories to contend with the hostages haven’t been in there all that long and they are shaking it. Coulson was quickest due to the Tahiti thing. May got the jolt with the kids, Coulson, and Mace’s heroic sacrifice…remember that whole thing wouldn’t have happened how it did if a new variables AKA Daisy and Jemma hadn’t crashed the party. They changed the equation when they jumped it. That is why AIDA is panicking because it threatens to change the answer on her….and while she can reset the hostages she can’t reset Daisy and Jemma, they will just keep messing with her equation.
Now taking that into account we need to look at Fitz. Who we are seeing fight back. We saw him a lot last week, we saw the remorse, DESPITE everything AIDA did to him to MAKE him what she needed the real Fitz was already starting to break through. He was questioning the new programming! Again, I know it feels like we and they have been in the Framework for ages but in reality its not that long.
This scene here is quite possibly one of the most important scenes of the entire season. Jemma said that despite all he’s been through he still became the open, loyal, caring man we know and love today. AIDA programmed Framework Fitz and then put our Fitz into him…and OUR Fitz is fighting the programming already. DESPITE all the horrible things she programmed for that Fitz to do/done the second she put the real deal in there…he started to fight back. Because they are all more than their programming.
The Avatars that AIDA dropped them all into are much like their LMD’s were. Programmed for a purpose. “You have Fitz’s mind, why are you doing this?” Jemma asked. And that was the thing, it had Fitz’s mind…not his soul and not his heart. So he couldn’t fight the programming because he was a machine. Robo May was different, one of her programming things was to BE May, AIDA said there wasn’t time for that when she abducted the team. So since Robo May was programmed to be May…the May in her broke through to save her girls. That is why the team will be able to overcome the Avatars programming because she put them in there. Its not just their minds this time, its not mimicking, its them. They are who they are. They are heroes. Good people. That will fight the good fight. So like Robo May had to overcome her programming so does the team. And that takes time.
AIDA created the characters we are seeing through manipulating the Framework and their own memories. She made things happen because she needed them too. IE I need Fitz to turn left at this intersection so I’m going to close the road so he can’t turn right.
So we have a lot in play here. Manipulation at its highest levels. Fitz has been dropped into an Avatar that has been manipulated and brainwashed into the position he is in now. And DESPITE getting that our Fitz has started to peek through already. Going back to the Star Trek Descent Reference (seriously guys its on Netflix go watch it) his ethics chip was rebooted when he saw Jemma.
Everyone has to beat the manipulation. We have seen them all slip. Coulson who knows better than any of the hostages what is going on was still pulled back into it at the Prison. He still went into that building despite what he knows. It pulled him back in. Just like AIlistair and Ophelia pull Fitz back in when ours breaks free a bit.
Finally, AIDA is using a lot of what she learned watching Radcliffe. Lying. Its okay to Manipulate someone and their feelings to get what you want. The carrot/stick approach. IE Hope is a reward for Mack and she is far more effective in keeping him in place that detaining and torturing him would be. It doesn’t make him any less a prisoner. Mack was ‘programmed’ to keep his head down and stayed out of trouble…yet he’s with the resistance now. Because that is what OUR Mack would do. AIDA isolated most of the team from each other, surrounded them with avatars that would keep them in place.
Sorry that kind of got away from me. So no, in no way is Fitz or any of the other hostages responsible for the actions of their Avatars. Unless we have confirmation that they are 100% self aware and themselves when they do it. He is doing what he has been because that is what he was programmed to do. Its not them. They have programmed by AIDA and the new experiences she gave him. And he is already breaking it. That is a huge victory in its own right. They will all have set backs but they will get there. Because its who they are.
Don't be sorry it was never your fault *cries forever* thank you for the hugs, I have read all the fluffs, and I couldn't write today (cause headaches) and I really need something right now, even a paragraph of fluff would do, even a caption on an Alex Maggie picture would do, I just need something. The fic I read was really well written, it included consent and all, but it was like the 5th in a very short time that had beating, it's overwhelming. Your kink fics are amazing, I really love them.
She tells her that the days of her pushing her feelings down are over, and god, does she mean it. Because last night, Alex held her and kissed the back of her neck and whispered sweet nothings – sweet everythings – into her ear until she fell asleep, because Maggie had come home upset about a confrontation she’d had at work. And this morning, Alex had gone on her run extra early and woken Maggie up with breakfast in bed. And last week, she’d kissed every centimeter of her face with a reverence that Maggie was still reeling from. Alex Danvers was perfect: and Alex Danvers deserves only the best of all things. Alex Danvers deserves, for once, to be put first. And that’s exactly what Maggie’s going to do, because the days of Alex pushing her feelings down are the days before they first kissed, the days before they started dating, the days before the tumbled into the same abyss of falling in love with each other.
