Okay I’m about to make a long theory about why I think black paladin Lance can AND SHOULD happen DISCLOSURE: I may be hard core reaching so don’t get your hopes up (uh or down if you want black paladin Keith???).
Why do you ship rivamika that much? I don't wanna hate I'm curious, personally I just don't get that ship
ALRIGHT. First of all, thank you for the kind, respectful anon! I love you already, you are the real MVP.
I don’t write meta because my brain doesn’t really work that way, I’m too spastic and get too excited, but I am going to try and lay out why I love RivaMika as much as I do…It’s not going to work that well, but I’m gonna try. This is going to end up being what mom facebook would call a “dear diary” post, in which the OP gives way more information than anyone asked for or wanted, but I just can’t help myself.
I genuinely forgot it was spoiler day. I think I'm reaching freedom. This is a blatant lie. How much I enjoyed the angsty wall slam stuff is proof of that lol! But I don't have much in the way of opinion about the latest spoilers apart from Robert's such an idiot to still be scheming (not new lol) but at least he'll get scenes with Lucky & Gerry (!) rather than the baby mamma. I want to be exited about potential Rob V Lucky though. I've been waiting forever. Can you do your excited list plz Lo?

OK CAN WE HAVE A ROB/LACHLAN CONFRONTATION WHERE THEY TALK ABOUT THE FUCKED UP FACT THAT ROB SPENT FOUR YEARS HELPING TO RAISE LUCKY AND NOW THEY HATE EACH OTHER AND HAVE REPEATEDLY TRIED TO TAKE ONE ANOTHER DOWN
ALSO LETS TALK ABOUT HOW ACROSS THE SUMMER AND THEN IN OCTOBER LAST YEAR WE WERE ALSO SEEING ROB VS LACHLAN STUFF IT’S ALL COMING FULL CIRCLE
because even though he's the leader he knows every member of the group is important and he will never try to take anything away from his boys. he looks out for them and cares about them and is really generous with his affection. also cheesy af and if you're into that kind of thing he's perfect for u
because he's so incredibly patient and kind, and he looks out for his members (just look at him explaining stuff to minghao :-) ) also he's gorgeous and probably actually really sassy. his voice is amazing and if you don't know it yet I'm gonna redirect you to their predebut performance of mirotic
because he is a crazy talented musical creator. he can write and compose and rearrange and play the guitar and what more do you want?? his voice is so gentle and soothing and so so lovely to listen to (he's also really lovely to look at he's basically model material) also bboys but I'm gonna just let him battle this one out with minghao
because this boy is more than a triple threat he acts really well, can play the piano also really well, is REALLY academically intelligent, pulls off dance like its nbd and has had to learn Korean and can now be the chi-kor mc if he needs to. pls don't underestimate jun because underneath all the good looks he also has so much more to him. warning bc he can also be greasy af but other than that he's good
fun fact you may know him as svt's impossibly talented choreographer but know that he could have been placed in vocal unit but decided to be put in performance unit so he could choreograph. also remember that he's a '96 liner with such a huge responsibility but he still pulls it off with a smile and for a boy his age to be doing all this is just so humbling and amazing?? he's also really funny and is really such a warm member of the group. also remember everything revolves around him i'm pretty sure 10:10 has become pledis' auspicious timing
because you may think this boy is really quiet and might be cold but he's really not that. he's passionate about what he does, and always gives his 200% no matter what. (he's going to be that one seungcheol has to yell at to go sleep or take a break bc he's sick and will want to keep working) his voice is deeper than the ocean and when he smiles it genuinely feels like nothing could be wrong in the world and it'll make you question why you ever thought he could be a cold person. also be careful bc his jawline could cut through diamond
because this boy is the reason why we have amazing songs we can use to introduce these 13 idiots to our friends. he works so. incredibly. hard. and is so dedicated to his work and puts so much pressure on himself to give nothing but all of himself and if you ever think he's only that kid with the coloured hair who's cute i will sit you down and change your mind. reminder that he's still so young, with so much responsibility i'm just really in awe of him
because this boy is literally a ray of sunshine LOOK AT HIS SMILE. he's also hilarious(go watch andromeda episodes with him in it and slowly fall in love) and has such an impressive set of vocals on him seriously you need to carefully listen to this boy. idk why he's so underrated because he's actually got everything going on for him. also his face is literally so aesthetically pleasing ill just stop before i embarrass myself
because this boy is a hUGE DWEEB. his height is insane idk what he eats but dAmn. pretty sure he's the definition of gentle giant because even though he's the tallest he's also so adorable and warm and deserves to be on the cover of gq and all the magazines. he also loves eating and can manage to look chill af even when he's in an eating competition (which he won btw go watch svt's qmentary)
BECAUSE THIS BOY IS THE EMBODIMENT OF ADORABLE. he works really hard to improve his korean and is that one who's really quiet but he catches everything. he's super supportive of his boys and will always be prepared to shoot anyone a supportive grin or nod or just any affirmation because he's so full of love. also loves dogs so he'll probably adopt 10 with you if you're willing. but underneath everything also watch out for this boy bc he's also a gangster (redirects you to all the photos where he's pointing the middle finger) and his b-boying will literally take ur breath away be careful
because he's so precious. he's the moodmaker of the group and is the reason why we get to learn so much about svt?? think about how effortlessly he can helm an interview or run andromeda and it's really through him that we get to see who seventeen is. not everyone can help bring 13 people to life but seungkwan does that so easily. also his vocals are to die for he's seriously SO talented and he deserves all the happiness. he also works really hard for what he wants,and i just know he will succeed. he loves his mum a lot which is so precious
hansol vernon chwe:
because he's such a distinctive rapper and again, he's really dedicated to what he believes in and what's he's passionate about. he will fight for what he wants and won't simply keep quiet about what bothers him. this boy has a fire in him and he's really brave (although idk this might get him into trouble some day lol) he's also a really sweet boy to be honest, despite everything.
because this boy is an amazing dancer. seriously, this kid is only 16 but the way he dances makes it look like he's been practicing for 20 years and his passion is so so admirable. he can choreograph, and does help soonyoung with it, which is amazing?? he has so much potential to go so far and really, if we're lucky enough to watch him grow older and as svt gains more experience, we'll get to see so much of Chan. he's also actually really cheesy and can be a romantic so ~
Per the video of Vic, Paulie, Zak in the HOH room and really from watching the feed myself, I got a totally different vibe than I was expecting. I realized early on that it’s really best to watch feeds or at least clips for yourself because most people on ‘stan twitter’ don’t convey shit the exact way it plays out. Many of them like the drama and only recap what they know will piss folks off or only give half truths instead of telling the whole story. This is why I am pretty much super vague in my posts when live watching because something always gets misconstrued (especially quotes with no other dialog surrounding it) no matter how it’s said.
Anyway, before I watched that clip for myself, I assumed that Paulie was acting with Zak in the way he was before he started ranting and raving from the night before. I thought maybe he was trying to be sweet and play her or whatever, because that’s essentially what some were saying, that it looked like he was playing her again by pulling her in with Vic there, after saying he wanted her on the block, etc. Basically, I thought it would look like he was doing it for strategy to keep her close and I was expecting to be pissed. But that’s not what I got at all.
Instead, the minute Vic laid down on the bed and looked like he was getting a bit too comfortable, Paulie got hella possessive with Z and literally pulled her to him. As if Vic was going to try it first or something and he had to let Vic know she was his. Same shit he pulled when they were all in the kitchen the other night, and he was just all over her. His body language when it comes to her tells a story all on its own, especially when he feels like there’s some kind of male threat looming.
Anyway, in the clip from tonight, you could see that shit all over his face how much he literally hates Victor because of his feelings for this woman more than for the game itself. He may not mean to show it, but I’ve realized that he cannot hide his feelings very well as much as he tries. Everything’s just plainly written, which is probably why he talks so damn much, to distract people from his expressions.
Mr. I Don’t Get Jealous and I Don’t Like Clingy Women is exactly the person he claims to hate, at least in this case with Zak. I live for that shit in my soap couples, not gonna lie, but at least soap couples get dialog and talk shit out, so LOL. Anyway, so many people are pissed that he keeps saying he’d put her on the block and that he’s bad mouthing her, and I totally get that. I’d be pissed too if I didn’t see through his bullshit. I personally don’t think he’s doing this because he’s using her or because he even means what he’s saying, or because he was pissed about a stupid joke, really. It comes across terribly because it’s on film but IMO, it’s so much more than that and he’s made it clear in his actions more than his words. Not to mention, we all say shit and do shit to and about people we care about when we get caught up like he is. He’s just a little bit more extreme when it comes to her given this environment and the fact that he’s not just into her, he’s REALLY into her which has, in turn, fucked him up in this game royally and he knows it, and that pisses him off.
He’s clearly an emotional player when it comes to her, and to me, if he really ever wanted her gone, it’d be because she’s messing up his game just by her being there and the fact that he knows he can’t not be around her, touch her, etc. It wouldn’t be for strategy if he really wanted her gone or cause he needed her gone for play, it’d be all emotion cause he cannot handle himself when he’s with her. Dude is just in too gotdamn deep and he can’t handle that shit. This is why I say Vic coming back made him lose what was left of his mind. You could tell from how he always looked at her, hugged her, initiated touching and even how he sleeps with her, that he was close to the edge. Vic opened that door and it just tipped him over. I mean before now, he was much more focused on the game while also liking Z, but now, he’s all over the damn place and at the forefront of his mind is Zakiyah more so than the game itself. It’s why he unthinkingly tosses her name out there; he gets pissed, he wants her up, but he doesn’t want her up, but he wants her pissed like he’s pissed.
He’s stupid and only mad at her that she got him caught up, but it’s not her fault. He knows that but I think part of him still blames her for it, hence the intense anger. At the same time, I’m not sure how he’d actually act with her being gone and not around him 24/7 and actually out in the real world with other men while he was still stuck in that house. He wants to win the money, no doubt, but he’s got feelings now, and again, that’s fucked him up. So while he might THINK that it’d be better for his game with her gone at first if she ever left, the truth is that it would drive him even nuttier to be there without her, because he legit seems like the type who would actually sit around and talk about what she’s doing when she’s not there, nonstop, and then get randomly pissed over a thought he had of her probably being with someone else. Dude literally went from being the most sane and pulled together player in the house and game, had his shit all the way lined up and ready to win, to a straight up wild card in a matter of like, 72 hours all because he got caught up in his feelings over this woman and can’t control that shit or talk it out with her. So instead, we get him being a dick and folks in the fandom burning their Zaulie flags. LOL. I still like them together, personally and despite whatever happens on the show, I’m convinced they’ll hook up once it’s all over. I just need Z to be a little more clued in as to what’s going on and confront his ass. She needs to be the Blair Waldorf to his Chuck Bass, basically.
I loved hibike euphonium s1 but I'm hesitant to watch s2 bc I really don't want reina and taki to get together so just like.. honest opinion here.. do u think they will get together?? does kumiko even have a chance or is it just queerbaiting??
my dude… my guy… taki is a grown ass man, reina is 15. it’s not gonna happen. the entire thing between them is reina mistaking admiration for love, even taki thinks so. i’ve been told *spoiler* that when reina confesses to him in the novel he brushes it off as admiration too. he doesn’t even take it seriously lol. don’t be worried about taki.
if you wanna be worried about queerbaiting you need to be worried about shuichi. now i personally think it’s absolute suicide for kyoani to make shuichi and kumiko a thing now after spending almost the entire show making shuichi as obsolete and irrelevant as possible BUT if there’s one thing in this world that im sure of, it’s the ability of studios to do an absolute 180 and run their show into the ground before allowing the gays to have their happy ending lol. we’ve all seen it happen a million times. frankly im a little worried about that haunted house scene between kumiko and shuichi in the last episode. i mean he hasn’t had a speaking part in like 4 solid episodes, and suddenly he’s on the cusp of confessing? odd. the fact that reina came between them again tho i feel could possibly be intentional?? she’s literally come between them several times, and there was that scene where shuichi was eyeing them flirting with each other. that just seems so intentional to me idk. it just feels like that means something. like reina physically coming between them all those times symbolizes how she’s coming between them emotionally as well? in a gay way hopefully? but the cynical side of me feel like it could also mean that they’re setting up a shuichi arc, and he’s gonna get his spot back. does that make sense? i hope im explaining this right lol. but anyways… to me, a known gay, it seems like he’s jealous of the fact that kumiko likes reina, but seeing it from a hetero pov im sure it’s meant to be like “boy i sure wish reina and kumiko weren’t such close friends so i could step in” *blinks* …but you can’t totally disregard the fact that kumirei spent the majority of the episode flirting with each other and shuichi only had like 2 seconds of screen time so i guess that’s a plus. i just don’t wanna get my hopes up, speaking as the dumb as fuck and easily queerbaited homosexual who has wrote several rants about the fact that we aren’t being queerbaited by kyoani, i’d just like to apologize in advance in case we actually are and i’ve been blindsided again……….. im really good at being tricked lmao.
tl;dr - don’t worry about taki, he’s old af and i am 100% positive that kyoani isn’t about to force a pedophilic relationship on us. worry about shuichi tho bc even tho it would absolutely run the show into the ground, they could still go in that direction and pretend that kumiko and reina have just been friends this entire time. it’s all up in the air at this point even tho it shouldn’t be
can u explain why u don't like halsey? like i dont feel the same way about her as i did a few months ago but i cant put my finger on it.
this may be long only cos i’m not gonna answer this question again and i want to get it all out
honestly, to me, everything about her, or maybe not everything but a lot, just seems completely manufactured and calculated and not at all honest - which is ironic given her whole (forced) shtick is “nothing but real and honest!!!!!!!!!!!” - and idk i just started to realise and rethink a lot of her image and started to see so many holes in it which made me think she’s not who she makes out to be?? that’s hyperbolic phrasing but idk
like she overly plays into this ~woke social justice queen~ image people have made of her, and she’ll occasionally go off and say all the right words with no real weight behind them. she recently said something about how she wants people to appreciate her intentions over her actions (cop out quote of the century) which really made me think about how maybe she is just doing this to capitalise on her apparent awareness without having to actually act on it.
like she can go off all she wants about how she supports every end of every spectrum but she slips up so many times it’s becoming hard to see if she really means it. like the classist shit she pulled the other week, and how she brands herself this superior feminist but always positions herself above so many other similar female artists in the industry (i know that’s practically a taylor swift outlook on feminism but she pisses me off so much with this “we haven’t had a feminist record in decades!!!! like who tf is on her itunes library for her to think that yikes). and like i completely get that everyone slips up, and yeah sometimes she’ll apologise, but 90% of the time she’ll go off and try and either cover it up or completely spin what she said and act like everyone’s always fighting her and she can’t make a joke cos she’s always misunderstood. and i wouldn’t have a (so much of a) problem with her being like that if it weren’t for the fact that she makes out she’s so much better than everyone else, and she’s the only one who speaks out and it’s her “moral responsibility” to become the face of certain things like she needs to fucking chill.
and the way she always says she can’t be labelled, as if she’s some mystical creature who can’t be defined and is completely mysterious, and yet she retweets a million and one articles click baiting her as “blue haired, tri-bi singer halsey” and then related to that how she’ll exploit said (for lack of a better word rn) ~attributes to gain certain fans and never really contribute to certain things (which is all well and good i’m sure she’s busy and i know it’s not her job to be on twitter 24/7 (although she doesn’t seem to miss anyone trashing her yikes)) but then she’ll really play into the fact that people hail her as an icon for those ~communities (as discussed here)
all her stories seem fabricated, especially when she has a million and one different accounts of a single story, and she’ll spin the truth to cover her ass or make herself look better and it just irks me so much. like honestly why she can’t just own up to things and stop fabricating or stretching certain stories is beyond me. like she’ll take credit for work that isn’t entirely hers or she’ll claim this superior individuality like she’s the first to ever do something for no reason at all to people who don’t know or have no means of finding out otherwise - until she’s called out on it and it gains traction and then she’ll be like “ugh you don’t understand the industry *eye roll emoji*
i know there’s a couple other things that i can’t phrase rn without sounding petty but when i figure it out i’ll add to it idk
Wait, no, that wasn’t the name of the episode was it…?
Hmm. Well, it might as well have been because…look if I need to explain why then you clearly haven’t watched it. So go watch it, flail about a bit, die from squealing too much, resurrect yourself, drink some water (you’re probably dehydrated from all the drooling over Messina hng) and then read this. Ok? Alright then.
Also, most of this is either me swooning over Danny/Chris or flailing over Dandy sooooo….be warned!
Oh and about half way through I started calling everyone assholes so there’s that too. I think I still have too many feels or something. I can’t cope.
