for some reason i have the same reoccurring scenario in my head of that scene from the little mermaid where ariel and eric are out on the water except it’s harley and ivy and the other rogues are in a rowing boat nearby singing kiss the girl while ivy looks mildly irritated as she tries to row away

so my sister finally made me watch voltron

i hardly knew anything about it except most characters’ names and a few tumblr posts that i’ve seen, which told me that pidge is nonbinary and klance is a thing; we just finished the first ep.

so, what i’ve concluded so far:

  • lance is actually p cool? from what i’ve seen he’s usually the first one to react and also brave as hell idk why i expected him to be a meme
  • shiro seems so reliable and everyone goes to him for advice and yet each time his answers are just shit like “follow your heart’s guideance” ,,he doesn’t know what he is doing 101% of the time shiro pls
  • he defs likes yoga. an d meditates regularly. he owns a bunch of those incence sticks if a psychic read his mind he’d hear sth like ommmmmidontknowwhatimdoing on repeat
  • if a psychic read keith’s mind it’d probably just be 5 hours of screaming
  • yes, klance is indeed a thing i’m yelling. lance is so bi for him he jsut opens his mouth anywhere near keith and all i hear is “i’m bi for this guy” ,,and keith is the physical embodiment of the “move i’m gay” meme
  • also how does he manage to be calm and angry at the same time, all of the time. how
  • i love pidge’s voice so so much
  • i love pidge so much
  • hunk’s fanboying over mechanical stuff is very relateable but i don’t like his character at all. sis tells me he’ll get development though
  • allura is a british magical girl and i don’t like her one bit lmao
  • shiro and keith used to date fite me on this. they probably figured it wouldn’t work because they haven’t seen each other in so long, things have changed the distance grew yadda yadda ,so they broke up
  • still doesn’t stop them from being like thAT tho, i get that anxious third wheel feeling just by looking at them look at each other gdi. they are That One Couple that you feel uncomfortable around, and they’re not even a couple anymore
  • coran (koran? corran? idk man how do you even spell him) is so funny he only just showed up and i already love the guy. he’s kind of an aged up version of lance and i’m cryingn
  • did i mention i love pidge?
  • i love pidge so much

Well I guess I see now why the writers dropped the Ray & Mick and the Amaya & Mick friendships from earlier in the season, and why they seemed to have such a hard-on for lone and friendless Mick stuff. But it’s still not like the whole “we never trusted him”/“I don’t have friends” stuff makes much sense anyway.

I seem to remember (using Ray as an example because these are the examples which come most readily to mind) Ray and Mick being partners, Ray giving Mick a pet rat (which did nearly kill him as a direct consequence of Mick’s untidiness which Mick nearly broke Ray’s wrist when he pointed out and Ray immediately accepted blame for but never mind), Ray and Mick fighting together in Out of Time, Mick taking Ray’s place at the Oculus, both of them wearing matching Christmas party hats and Ray going to Mick after Snart died. But they aren’t friends, oh no, of course not, not even when Ray greets Mick as “Buddy!” or the rat’s existence pretty much implies they spend a lot of time hanging out together or anything.

As for trusting him, Mick was literally holding the spear. This very powerful artefact which can be used to rewrite reality. He was. Holding it. Sara handed it to him. Oh, but they don’t trust him at all. They never fight alongside him and never give him a place on their missions and exclude him from all their briefings and oh. Except they do. They do trust him. (I mean maybe Mick doesn’t feel like it right now and that’s reasonable, what with Snart’s manipulation and everything, but for the show to act like it’s actually the case is ludicrous.)

I also remember Mick going to rescue Ray and Nate in Shogun, and recognising that, “They’d do the same for me”. It seems like a step backwards had been taken in terms of Mick’s character development, to the point where this does him a disservice.

It just seems to me like the writers needed the Legion to get the Spear and weren’t sure how else to do it (personally, I’d much rather it had been Nate who betrayed everyone because the emotional impact of that, that none of the characters would have had a clue it would happen, and maybe he finally would have been interesting, we’ve gone through this with Mick before etc). But I was rooting for the inverse of the scene from Marooned, with Mick choosing the Legends over evil!Snart. Maybe next week I guess. Come on, show. 

foreverdeen  asked:

after seeing all your praise for the hating game, i gave it a read and really enjoyed it. what makes it so perfect for you?

i think a good enemies-to-lovers book is made specifically on the banter between the two characters. the dialogue has to be on point, and i felt like it never faltered in The Hating Game. and you’ve got to be able to redeem both characters in an enemies to lovers, particularly the one who’s been the biggest asshole (which is usually the guy i think) and i thought the explanation for Josh’s antagonism/general assholery toward others was refreshing and kind of enlightening: he was actually shy, so that’s why he came off as an asshole. as someone who’s been called a bitch because i’m shy, it was like a revelation to me.

and also i think the declaration of his love at the end was the most romantic moment in a book i’ve ever read.
