i legitimately miss them right now

anonymous asked:

One thing that excites me about Super Mario Odyssey is that it looks like a legitimate adventure, rather than a bunch of obstacle courses. I think that was missing from the NSMB games, which were content with regurgitating indistinguishable depictions of the Mushroom Kingdom

I feel like Breath of the Wild might have shaken some people up at Nintendo and made them go “hey linearity is cool and all but exploration and discovery and atmosphere are also pretty cool and super in vogue right now.”

Which makes me glad. I’m happy to get Super Mario 64 “playground” levels back again.

OKay I’m here to go to meta land, mainly to help everyone calm the fuck down. I think you all are letting what the haters are saying get to you, and they are legitimately so scared right now and they are grasping at a chance to jack themselves off to our negative reactions: Don’t give them the satisfaction, let them jerk themselves raw.

Okay so about the fact that Damon kept mentioning Elena, here is some context that maybe a few( or a lot) of people maybe missed in the heat of the moment.

Damon was on the phone with Stefan and he says to him, “when you love someone sometimes you have to go to those extremes.”

and Stef goes, “Uh Bro, I know you’ve been in a coffin for 3 years but that’s legitimately terribly advice.”

Cue Damon looking at Bonnie (Who is canonically not Elena) and him saying, “Actually brother, it’s so good, I actually have to take it myself.” 

Like are we completely ignoring that fact that that’s exactly what happens before Damon jumps into Bonnie’s head?

He then goes into her head, obviously bringing her to the Gilbert house. Bonnie didn’t see shadow Elena by herself, that wasn’t like…an accident. Damon made that happen, he intentionally used Elena as a trigger. She’s been a damn trigger for both of them all fucking season, so the fuck? Why are people getting so bent out of shape about it now or for our anti’s, why are they wetting their pants over this all of the sudden? It’s been cannon all season. It’s been cannon since Kai linked Bonnie’s life to Elena’s. It’s always going to be a trigger. Get over it.

Then, Damon did exactly what he went there to do. He pissed her off. And he used the thing that he thought would have the most promise of waking her up, the trigger Elena, to do so. Do people really think Damon is that dense to not be aware of Bonnie’s feelings for him? He’s not a dumbass. He knows. He literally goaded her with his past love for Elena, until she ripped his motherfucking heart out of his motherfucking chest. 

Then as soon as she wakes up he goes, “Sorry Bon Bon, had to get you to wake up somehow.”

I’m going to break here and remind you guys that huntress toxin is literally seeping into her brain right now. Like she is literally being rewired to hate vampires on a primal and biological level, so her response in this next scene can definitely be justified by that.

Then it jumps to the phonecall (god our OTP loves phonecalls) Bonnie talks about how she hates him and he says,

“Come on, Bon Bon you know everything I said was just a ploy to make you wake up, right?”  I guess our Anti’s are using their selectively small brains to ignore the parts of the episodes they didn’t like and that disprove their wet dream fantasies.

Bonnie responds with knowing where he is and what he’s feeling inside and thats how she knows a part of what he said was true. But like… I can’t help but think this is the Huntress talking? Grasping on to the love Damon still has for Elena. He’s always going to love Elena guys, you gotta stop flipping out and thinking our ship is sinking every time someone mentions her. Because Damon may love Elena but he for damn well sure isn’t going to let bonnie die from anything but old age. That has been proven so many times this season, especially the last few episodes and it will be further cemented in the finale. 

Then commences more Damon flirting with Bonnie and them hardcore throwing down. Huntress!Bonnie calls Damon the scum of the earth and a parasite and says he’s a living, breathing reminder of everything she’s lost and that he’s standing where Elena should be. Is ANYONE else noticing the pattern here yet or is it just me? (Psssttt she’s the trigger)

Damon leads Bonnie to her grave(idk why he didn’t dig me one while he was at it?) and then she attacks him and he restrains her and he’s like “If I want to die, I wanted it to be here, Bonnie; In honor of you.  I know that the Bonnie I knew yesterday is gone and she may never come back; But I’m talking to you Crazy Bitch Bonnie in all her glory, I still care about you.”

A) if this was really about E, wouldn’t he have just stayed dessicating or wanted to die with her/at the Gilbert house/etc etc etc? *Scratching face emoji* 

B) Ouch. My heart. 

Now on to one of the most important moments in Bamon history.

They struggle and they end up literally against the stump with Bonnie straddling Damon (literally, where are the fanfics?)

Damon says, “Look at the stump Bonnie. Remember it? We mourned you. and you came back. You’ve been so many things Bonnie, a witch, a human, a corpse, a ghost, an anchor to the other side… And now? The woman who is going to kill me.” 

They are fighting over the stake at this point but Damon keeps talking.

“And every time you come back stronger. Do you know how incredible that is? Do you know how much I envy you? Hell some days I can’t even handle being myself.” 

Bonnie tells him to stop talking.

Damon goes, “I can’t because if this is my last moment with you Bonnie Bennett, I need you to hear me. I admire you. I believe in you. and I love you. The same way Elena loved you.”

He then says, If you do kill me, it’s not your fault. I take all responsibility. I did this to us.

As soon as he says Elena it pans to Bonnie and she shakes her head because that’s literally the only thing that’s getting through to her. If you listen to the inflection in Damon’s voice, he said it as more of a reminder than anything. He was using it to anchor Bonnie. He didn’t say it in a platonic manner. He didn’t “sister zone” Bamon. Believe me. ELENA IS THE GODDAMN MOTHER FUCKING TRIGGER THAT HE THOUGHT WOULD BREAK THROUGH THE HUNTERS CURSE. DAMON WAS TRYING TO GET THROUGH TO BONNIE. THAT IS THE ONLY REASON HE USED HER NAME.

Now to the last scene. Damon was standing at the window drinking looking downright broody. Enzo walks in and is like “Mind if i join” and Damon is like bro, this isn’t a celebration… and Enzo says Bonnie is alive and that’s all that matters to him. And instead of being like, ‘yeah same bro cheers *clink clink motherfucker* roll credits’; the VERY next thing out of Damon’s mouth is “I couldn’t get through to her.” and then Enzo talks about the lead Matt found (that I’m sure enzo will later take creds for) and Damon says “Tell me you have a way to help her…” in a very, ‘I’ll go to the ends of the earth and do whatever that said thing is to help Bonnie Bennett’ way.

I guess that music tonight when Damon gave that speech was completely platonic. If that’s the case I hope the same music is playing when they platonically kiss for the first time. I hope that same score swells as Damon platonically eats Bonnie’s pussy. And all in the name of Elena, of course. ;) 

Guys… This is anything BUT platonic. DE shippers can cream their shorts over him mentioning Elena but the context of the scenes legitimately flew right over their heads. I hope they have their tissues ready for when Damon sacrifices everything, for Bonnie(platonically of course) I think I’ve clearly outlined said scenes and their actual context and I hope I’ve cleared up any and all confusion anyone has had. Please don’t let these rats get to you, they are literally running scared and looking for anything at this point to avoid admitting that Bamon is closer than ever to becoming canon. Don’t let them drag you down. ;)
