First day at Camp Halfblood: Welcome!! here’s your cabin, here’s your new family, hey, don’t wanna fight? That’s fine! You can help out on the farm, invent, play, just have a good time you’re part of our family now and we love you and are so proud of you and
First day at Camp Jupiter: Ok here’s where we force our campers to battle to the death on a daily basis now go train in the woods for months with a pack of wolves who will probably eat you if you aren’t good enough to be here welcome to camp you little shit
after what happened in this 2 episodes i don’t know how my heart is still beating and how in the world i’m still breathing after all this emotions (Right in the kokoro).
i feel like writing 1000000 fanfics after this lol
the way Adrien looked to Marinette… the way he is around her.. so confortable with her… even touching her… and whispering to her ear… DAMN!!!! I wAs NoT ReADy!!!!
that, my boy, is not something you do when you see someone as just your FrIeND!!! ok boy? You hear me screaming Adrien Agreste????
we also can see that Cloé’s mom decided to leave, right? cloé was still a child. that part of the drawing almost made me cry.
and i loved how she helped Ladybug
I don’t want to seem like a nervous nelly but I’m really concerned that they will pair up Hook 2.0 with Tiana now after seeing how he acts around her. Am I crazy? 😕
Ok ok ok, babe. My dude. Let’s take a look at the characters Hook canonically flirted with/made eyes at/tried to seduce/made innuendos toward:
some bar wenches
(did I miss any??)
So… of those, how many was he canonically romantically involved with? Two, babe. Two of em.
Hook’s a flirt. He always has been. The difference between OG Killian and Wish!Hook is that the former is settled down in a relationship now. Pre-Emma, Killian was all up in everyone’s business, ok? So Wish!Hook doesn’t have an Emma, which means he’s gonna be a flirt. Seriously it’s just part and parcel of his character. Eyeing and flirting ≠ Hook falling in love. I do not see a romantic entanglement on the rise for Hook and Tiana. (But Captain Cook is super adorable and I hope they become a nice brotp.)
not to be sappy and show emotion but im genuinely so happy about lup. this badass, lovable, loved person, who’s treated as intimidatingly cool and hot and beautiful and rad enough that barry was so, so nervous about asking her out, and she’s trans. the cliche of the super cool popular girl who the kinda dorky guy crushes so hard on is annoying but griffin wrote it so well and oh yeah she’s also trans
it feels so good to see a trans girl in any media whos shown not only as beautiful and cool but desirable. shes not just admired from a distance, put on a pedestal, she’s cool and fun and cocky and everybody loves not just knowing her but loves being her friend, and in one case, her lover. we never get that. we never just get to be girls with no prefix.
like i mean i do appreciate trans characters in more realistic (and more public) media where their transness does have to be dealt with and examined as a part of their life, but sometimes it’s nice to just exist without your identity affecting you in everything you do. lup would be an amazing character, and i’d be ok with blupjeans even if she was cis but she’s not and that’s so fuckin rad
anyway this was completely spontaneous but tl;dr i love lup
it’s 100% canon that Yuuri and Victor learn each other’s languages and I love to think about them surprising each other with it?
because just imagine half-asleep Yuuri mumbling something in Japanese and Victor chuckling and answering him in the same language and Yuuri being suddenly very awake and affected and very very in love
or Victor and Yakov discussing some parts of Victor’s program in Russian and Yuuri casually adding his comment and Victor just staring at him for a second while Yuuri is blushing and internally freaking out he said it the wrong way
idk I just love to think of all those small moments and I’m so sure that after a couple years they’ll probably stop talk in English and use some weird mix of Japanese and Russian instead and for some reason it makes me really happy to imagine this
so the vmas were tonight and i watched it to support fall out boy and a couple other artists i liked. and there were a HUGE number of issues i had with this years vmas:
firstly, WHY DOES EVERYONE HATE ROCK SO MUCH??? during the chester bennington eulogy, jared leto asked the crowd to stand up in honor of chester and anyone who was struggling with the difficulties that he was going through. AND NO ONE STOOD UP. SO JARED HAD TO ASK TWICE. THIS WAS A MEMORIAL FOR ONE OF THE BIGGEST NAMES IN ROCK AND POP-PUNK. IT WAS RUDE AND DISRESPECTFUL. ALSO, THEY PUT A FUCKING AD RIGHT IN THE MIDDLE OF THE EULOGY. THAT LEGEND DID NOT DESERVE THAT LEVEL OF DISRESPECT. IT DOESN’T MATTER WHETHER YOU LIKED LINKIN PARK OR NOT; CHESTER BENNINGTON WAS A GENIUS AND WAS A LIFE LOST TOO EARLY.
furthermore, to top it all off, they never even mentioned the Best Rock Video category. why have it if you won’t even acknowledge it?????
!! this next part is not for members of the clique that get angry easily. i love twenty one pilots too. i have a whole other blog dedicated to them. this is just my personal opinion. !!
ok, so both top and fob were nominated for Best Rock Video (top for heavydirtysoul and fob for Young & Menace), and SURPRISE, SURPRISE! twenty one pilots won. this angers me so much, it’s not even funny. here’s why:
• top is on hiatus right now. they’re not even active. no new singles, no album, no interviews, no nothing.
• fob on the other hand is going on tour, releasing music, doing interviews, doing radio shows, doing promo, etc.
• top didn’t even show up. neither tyler nor josh showed up. they didn’t say anything about the award at all, and [as of right now] they haven’t thanked their fans for the award. they never acknowledged it.
• fob went to the vmas, hyped up the award, pete presented, they thanked their fans, they brought the llamas, they attended the red carpet, THEY BROUGHT THE LLAMAS.
• top’s music video didn’t even have a meaning. it was literally just “tYjO dEfEaTeD bLuRrYfAcE!!1!!!1!”
• fob’s music video spoke volumes about abuse.
• heavydirtysoul (the song) came out 2015.
• young & menace came out 2017.
AND NOW. THE #1 REASON I AM ANGRY THAT TOP WON INSTEAD OF FOB: top has won the same amount of awards that fob won in TWO YEARS that fob won in 16 YEARS. most of which, were won for the pure fact that most of the clique just mindlessly voted for top, regardless of whether or not they deserved it.
again, i am a huge fan of both bands, but i HIGH KEY feel that Fall Out Boy DESERVED that award (if it was not apparent in my rant).
Let’s be real for a second in terms of like where this show is headed with regards to my favorite character (surprise it’s Lance jk no one is surprised)
Recently this tweet happened:
And some people are taking this really well and other people… not so much. Which makes sense since all of us have been like #thirstin for something more for Lance and have been met with a lotta nothing, but I think this tweet is actually a good thing.
Basically: Lance will step up to the plate and he’ll become more of a leader and take on more responsibility but at the end of the day…
And when people ask for more about Lance in terms of his character, you don’t really hear much beyond this, which is exTRemEly frustrating but just hear me out.
It might not be this deep but I think it’d be cool if there’s a reason for the Voltron team being so adamant in the fact that “Lance is Lance.” And he will always be no matter what. This can go one of two ways.
1. Lance is Lance because he will always only be comic relief. 6 seasons of comic relief. That’s him. He’s Lance. A flirt. Cocky. Goofy. Sure he might have some moments like we’ve seen in S1 and S2 but for the most part he’s there to be the team goofball to make everyone laugh (or groan with frustration and annoyance)
Which is shitty and terrible and I will be so angry if this is what goes down but for now let’s move onto the MUCH BETTER option 2.
2. Lance does become a leader (maybe a co-leader? Right hand man? stays the Blue Paladin and just kinda steps up more? whatever) but no matter how tough things get, no matter how worn down the team is, no matter how hopeless the situation seems, Lance can still be Lance. And I don’t just mean he’s able to crack a joke at a tense time to lighten the mood, though that also is a part of it. I mean that he is able to keep a level head and calmly think things through even in chaotic or near impossible situations
That he is always concerned about the well-being of other and is willing to lay down his life for his friends (AKA PEOPLE HE JUST MET)
That he’s also not afraid to call out these friends when he thinks they are making a mistake (there seems to be a running theme with this one…..)
That he’s also appreciative of his friends and pays attention to their needs/wants and their strengths
And that he will always go down swinging
But maybe most importantly, and this is what I hope the Voltron team is trying to get at, Lance will never lose his joy and excitement and happy go-lucky demeanor. This is what makes him the Blue Paladin (and also why I think he would make a great Black Paladin but anyways….). He’s the glue of the team and this means more than just being the comic relief and making ill-timed jokes.
I really love the Lance that is able to start a weird space spore fight or wants to knit sweaters for Arusians. I love the Lance that enjoys doing a crazy dance while explaining their extremely dangerous plan to defeat Zarkon. I love the Lance that has fun coming up with wild ideas about what else could be locked up in Beta Traz. It’s not that he’s not taking his job as a Paladin seriously but rather that he is trying to take this crazy situation in stride as much as possible. We know that he can be worried, insecure, and lonely, but this never stops him from being who he is. He stumbles, loses confidence, regains it, and stands back up again ready to start swinging at the next asshole who decides to come for him and his friends.
Lance is adaptable just like water. He might come in different forms (serious, competitive, caring, homesick, flirtatious, etc) but at the end of the day it’s all of it is a part of who he is. He might need to get better at figuring out the appropriate timing of being leader Lance or flirty Lance, but it’s not like he has to lose the more immature part of him to become a more well-developed character.
So when people say “Lance will always be Lance,” I’m actually pretty fucking thankful. I’ve read some Langst where Lance becomes more “Keith-like” to cope with his insecurities which……. I’m conflicted about. I don’t think he needs to go as far as NOT be him in order for the team to learn to appreciate him more. So I think this affirmation from the staff that Lance will always be himself no matter what makes me believe that he will be what keeps the team together through the difficult and tumultuous times to come. That even despite his clear self-doubt he will be able to put the team and others first and maintain his role as the glue. That he will still manage to grow and change as a Paladin AND maintain the things that make him Lance.
There will be growing pains, of course, (I’m guessing a lot to do with Keith) but just because he’s insecure doesn’t make him weak. Lance doesn’t have to become more serious or stoic in order to be taken more seriously or be more “mature.” Then he wouldn’t be the Lance we know and love. He can withstand the challenges to come and develop as a character without sacrificing these integral parts of himself. He is capable of SO MUCH and I can’t wait for him to unlock the potential that was always there within him and makes him who he is.
i’m just thinking about something griffin said in the new ttazz, about how the mcelroys are 4 cishet white dudes, and they didn’t want to only tell stories about cishet white dudes. there’s a post i saw a while ago that essentially said, “write stories with diverse characters, but don’t tell stories that you don’t understand.” like, white people should absolutely have people of color in our stories, but we can’t write about being a person of color because it isn’t our story to tell. and i feel like the adventure zone handled this pretty damn well. taako is a gay man who is dating another man. he doesn’t go through a big emotional struggle because of his sexuality, he doesn’t have a coming out scene, he doesn’t have to deal with homophobic attacks, because justin is straight and he isn’t able to talk about being gay because he isn’t. lup is a trans woman whose gender isn’t talked about- not because it isn’t important, but because griffin is cis and doesn’t know what being trans is like. i mean, they also aren’t wizards and elves and stuff, but wizards and elves and stuff aren’t real people with real struggles. the characters’ orientations and genders are part of them but not the defining part of them. justin and griffin roleplay taako and kravitz just as they would roleplay a dude and a lady who were dating: a little awkwardly, because they’re brothers, but organically and immersively. idk, this post is too long and somewhat incoherent, but i just love these boys and this story and these characters so much
What if for the trc show the actor who plays Noah narrates all of the important parts of the show from lines from the book
Like for the opening scene of the pilot he would voice over “blue Sargent had forgotten how many times she’d been told that she would kill her true love” and so on and so forth while blue went about her day at 300 fox way helping her family with readings or at school or something
And then for season 2 it would begin with “a secret is a strange thing. There are three kinds of secrets.” With Noah actor voice over and scenes showing Ronan and his three types of secrets
Or for trk “Richard gansey iii had forgotten how many times he had been told he was destined for greatness” Because they’re all connected through Noah and he’s been watching them all and he knows them all and he loves them all
Could u imagine
