Things about The Magnificent 7 that need to be shared
After the first gun fight when Goody got shot they’re all trying to figure out where everyone is, Goody’s saying something about candles or some shit and Billy keeps staring at his arm (where he got shot)
Emma holding that guys hand when Red Harvest is fuCKING Denali uP
Sam singing “Bring ‘em in” when Bouge sends those 2 dudes in to get Sam towards the end
Teddy Q is precious and must be protected at all costs
After Goody left and Horne is talking about how it’s good to be in the service of men he respects he specifically looks at Red
UGH when Sam is trying to convince Goody to stay and fight and he goes “You’ll be disappointing more than just me if you leave.” (((BILLY)))
When the little girl offers Horne water and he says in the most delicate and pure way “Thank you, miss.” i cRI
HORNE PROTECTING TEDDY AFTER HE GOT SHOT
Obviously Vasquez leading Faraday’s horse (totally in love w/ each other)
buT ALSO Red w/ Horne’s body
Teddy Q is so smol and amazing and I love him
Billy’s last words are “Goody”
I WILL ALSO NEVER BE OVER HOW VASQUEZ COMPLETELY AND UTTERLY FUCKED THAT GUY UP AFTER HE SHOT FARADAY
no you don’t understand the way he stalked out of that church and unloaded into that guy i don’t have to words to describe what he looked like
Red’s horse was actually beautiful
also goddam Martin Sensmeier riding bareback is not easy especially riding bareback when you’re hauLING ASS like he was i applaud you
Remember Iron Man 3 the “cheap trip and a cheesy one-liner” yea that is literally Joshua friggin Faraday
After Billy kills that guy with his hairpin (awesome) there’s a shot of Goody and he smirks and rolls his eyes so fucking fondly like “You couldn’t just shoot him Billy, you had to go for the theatrics, so dramatic, we all know you’re faster than him, ya just HAD to show off.”
alSO the fucking way he flicks that godamn cigarrette with such flair
the little run that Faraday does when he’s trying to get away with the cash right at the beginning when everyone is freaking out over Sam
also really not fair that Red Harvest doesn’t have sleeves because Martin Sensmeier is JACKED
ALSOalsoalso ho-ly SHIT the shot right before the big battle where Sam is on his horse on the ridge overlooking the town and the sky is this dark blue and everything is dark you can’t really make out details just his outline against the sky and the music is perfect and that fucking shot is so amazing
Peter Sarsgaard did a really fantastic job in this movie
When Faraday flicks his cigarette at Vasquez
ᵐᵐᵐᵐᵐm ºʰ ᵐʸ ᵍºᵈ OKAY so this shot was like super quick but when that lady comes up with Horne’s weird pelt carpet jacket thing or whatever Vasquez is like smiling at him then it cuts back to Horne THEN back to Vasquez and he has this dumb little smile on his face and he bops his head back and forth and its the cutest fucking thing I’ve ever seen Manuel Garcia-Rulfo is a gift to us all
off topic of this text post but i refuse to accept the ending of this movie and the only AU i will accept is the one where everyone lives and four out of the seven are gay and they all stick together forever
i just want to yell about these idiot cowboys for eternity
• Jason loves visiting Billy at his desk before class starts to just check in on him and ask him how his day has been and Billy just loves it and rambles on like he does. The teacher even has to kick Jason out because he doesn’t realize the bell has rung because he’s listening so intently.
• Billy loves Jason’s hair! Like “it’s just so curly and pretty Jason!!!” And Jason just gleams with his head in Billy’s lap while he’s on his phone letting him twirl it around and massage his scalp because it feels so good and like “Billy you stopped playing in my hair, Ima need you to stop doing your homework and finish playing with my hair.”
• When Jason gets into fights with his dad he low key goes in his room and cries and wants to throw crap. He doesn’t like talking about his personal drama with his dad to the other rangers but Billy can always tell when something is up so whenever they are over each other’s houses Billy’s just like “Jason, I know something is wrong so please don’t tell me that your fine and tell me why you’re upset.” And Jason is so dumbfounded??? He’s so???? Like how do you know??? But then he lets it all out and ends up crying on Billy’s shoulder.
• Billy feels that it’s only right to ask Jason if he can walk with him to class or sit next to him at lunch because he’s afraid that one day Jason will get tired of him and be annoyed with him because he’s unapologetically himself but little does he know Jason finds him like SUPER sexy it’s so funny. One day they’re like making out and Billy’s like “Jason is this okay???? Am I bothering you??” And Jason is just shook he’s like “Billy… we’re kissing…”
• Jason is a little possessive sometimes and has to check himself because he gets jealous easily. After Billy accidentally knocked out the bully, he quickly became a ladies man and pretty popular so when a bunch of people are crowded by Billy’s locker, Jason runs up and grabs his hand like “HEY BABE LETS GO GET LUNCH I REALLY MISSED YOU” and Billy just covers his face because he’s blushing so hard and is slightly embarrassed but low key loves it so much.
• Billy gets super upset and confused one time because he’s sees Jason talking to his ex boyfriend from the football team and Jason is smiling while talking to him and it leaves him really hurt but he doesn’t understand because he’s like “they were just talking” but it still hurts so he doesn’t talk to Jason for a while and like avoids him which leaves Jason so confused as well because he has no clue what he did wrong. When he catches Billy at his locker and is like “can you please talk to me? If I did something wrong let me fix it Billy please.” And Billy gets really emotional and overwhelmed and is like “listen Jason I really like you but if you like someone else that’s okay I understand I don’t want to be a bother I just really want to be your friend and I know Brad from your team is a really nice guy-” and Jason shuts him up with a hug, realizing what he was talking about and he’s like “Billy, he was just asking me how I was and all I could do was talk about how happy you make me.”
• Jason sometimes visits the football field and watches the players which gets him in his feelings. Whenever he comes back to where the rangers are he doesn’t talk for a minute and tries to hide how much he misses playing the game but Billy ain’t no fool. So he’ll throw himself on to Jason’s back and kiss him all over and is just like “I WUV U SO MUCH LETS GO GET YOUR FAVE ICE CREAM!” And Jason can’t help but smile with tears of joy because he doesn’t know what he did to deserve someone as kind, loving, considerate, and just damn he’s so fine like Billy.
• Billy can be really flirty when he wants to be and he loves leaving Jason flustered like when they’re at his house and no one is in sight he’ll nibble on Jason’s ear and whisper things while Jason is trying to be a good student and do his homework but dang it’s so hard. So he ends up putting his homework away and they do “other things”.
• After Billy’s death, Jason sometimes can’t sleep without hearing Billy’s voice so he’ll FaceTime him and Snapchat him like their streak on Snapchat is over 500. Billy will let it be known that it’s “3 in the morning Jason I’m fine” but then Jason just smiles because he knows he’s with him and safe and that they’re okay.
• Jason is extremely fashionable like his Instagram has thousands of followers because everyone thinks he’s so cute and stylish and his pics are on fleek. Little do they know that Billy is Jason’s personal photographer and manager. Even when they’re walking and Jason sees something super “aesthetic” he’ll be like “Billy! Check this wall out!” And Billy is like “already got you” and pulls out his phone and goes into professional photographer mode, getting on his knees or any position to take good photos of Jason for his social media. Billy isn’t a picture person himself because he has low self esteem but he gives in when Jason gives him puppy dog eyes and is like “please take this selfie with me?! Everyone deserves to know how awesome and cute my bf is!” And Billy is like “sometimes I don’t feel cute…” and Jason is about to beat someone ass like “who said you weren’t cute?? Did someone say something to you?? Was it in detention??” And Billy’s like “nooo Jason staaahhpp noooo” and then Jason realizes it’s Billy who feels this way and all he can do is hug him and tell him how perfect he is, just the way he is.
• Jason has a very hard time controlling his anger sometimes so when Billy almost gets himself hurt when they’re fighting Rita’s monsters, he freaks out and starts yelling like “Billy how could you?! You could get yourself hurt or even worse and I can’t handle losing you Billy please-” and Billy kisses and hugs him with tears in his eyes once Jason starts to cry too because they’re soft boys and they care too much for each other.
• Billy is a huge nerd for super heroes and Jason can’t help but to surprise him with super hero themed adventures and movies, especially when the local theatre starts playing older super hero movies Jason surprises him with tickets to each one and Billy freaks out and is like “I HAVE THE BEST BF IN THE WHOLE WORLD!” And Jason wears his captain America shirt and Billy wears his spider man shirt and Jason is high key a DC guy but he doesn’t really care as long as Billy’s happy… but also “Jason, how can you like DC more than Marvel????? Like???”
• Jason is a classic movie and theatre buff (just like Dacre) and Billy buys him a huge box of classic movies from the thrift store because they were each like a $1 each and Jason can’t even handle all the emotions he’s feeling he’s like “you fouND GONE WITH THE WIND????” And they spend the night eating and watching all of them until Billy falls asleep but Jason is stubborn and is like “nope, I’m not sleeping till we’re done with the first tape” but most of the classics come with two or three tapes.
• Don’t let that sweet boy fool you Billy can be possessive too and he’ll leave hickies all over Jason’s neck and chest and shoulder and Jason LOVES it but when he goes to school he has to wear his dads big sweaters and hoodies and shirts and just runs to Kimberly in the halls like “Kim I REALLY need your cover up” and this is basically how the other rangers find out and they FLIP OUT! They kinda had a deal with Zack on whether or not they’d found out in the next few days. Billy gets a little embarrassed but he knows what he’s doing. “I’m sorry Jason but it’s not my fault you’re so pale and pasty!!” And Jason scoffs like “um… excuse me? It’s not my fault that I’m the only white person here…” and the other rangers just laugh so much like he’s so white it’s funny asl.
• One day Jason and Billy are hanging out and Billy honestly asks him “will you be mad at me if some days I don’t want to be touched or kissed?” Because some days Billy just doesn’t feel comfortable and Jason smiles and holds his hand “Billy you tell me what you want and when you’re ok and I won’t mind, ever.” And Billy nods and hugs the crap out of his bf because he couldn’t have found someone more patient and loving than Jason.
to start off the other four think that Trini only settles for beer until they crash a party and they loose trini to find her taking a line of shots against this huge dude who can’t even finish
She isn’t even a crazy drinker, she just likes to drink and knows how much she can handle
that doesn’t stop her from getting drunk every once in a while
Trini gets so competitive she’s already competitive but she gets so much MORE competitive.
She plays beer pong and once when she lost a game she flipped the table and put a hole in the wall
She looses control of when she morphs (they all do) but with Trini even just a kiss from kim can make her to start morphing when she’s drunk
Sometimes Trini drinks whiskey thats older than her and Kim is always chasing after her and takes it away
also when she’s drunk she doesn’t shut up. The other rangers love it. She doesn’t talk about her problems at home, and she’ll talk about them when she wants too but when she’s drunk she tells them all of these funny stories that she swears are true and rants about shark week almost every time.
When she’s drunk her and Billy have the most interesting conversations, “Hey, Billy, once I made a beer bottle explode with my mind.”
“Tell me more.”
“Well, I got angry and I guess my power coin felt it and it got really hot and then BOOM goes beer bottle.”
“well that’s because of..”
She drunk calls Kimberly one night when she’s just with Jason and leaves a three minute message talking about how much she loves kim and ends it with, “I also love your boobs and can’t wait to see you naked again”
She doesn’t get why Zack is laughing so much the next day for no reason until Kim just goes, “Remember your message last night? He may or may not have heard it”
HOLY SHIT THIS IS THE MOST INCREDIBLE THING I HAVE EVER RECEIVED. like i don’t even have words to tell you how amazing this is? i just. i’m very emotional right now and i love you and i love this and just thank you.
It strikes me, as the High Holidays roll in, that I’ve never seen fanart of Billy Kaplan in a tallis. I’ve seen kippahs (once or twice, te adoro, Cris), and Hannukah sweaters (fuck that), but never actually seen him presented as a Jewish man actively participating in some of the most important rites of his faith.
All I’m saying is that there’s a reason the boy loves capes.
This is how it’s worn - more traditional ones are a big rectangle, worn long sides top and bottom, the sides folded back and up on the shoulders to keep them out of the way. They’re often held together at the front with a pair of clips & a short chain.
Sometimes they get pulled up over the head when you’re lost in thought, having a private prayer moment, or for certain prayers that require more coverage.
And yes, they most certainly do come in rainbow, in all kinds of variations and configurations. (Mine is.)
In summation, give Billy a tallis, please! (And if someone felt inspired, I would be thrilled to write something in an art swap for it.)
since you are one of the most popular/best emison fanfic writers this fandom has (i'm still waiting for that damn update u ain't slick) i feel like this is an appropriate question to ask you: out of emison, who tops? Emily or Alison?
😲😲Wow! Thank you for the support, my love! ☺☺☺☺☺ I AM WRITING. YOU KNOW HOW LONG MY CHAPTER BE FAM.
However, I’ve noticed how this answer is different among emisonians so this is going to be my sole opinion. If you read my stories, you already know my answer. Emily tops. But I’m gonna explain why. Hold on to your seats billy bob because I got some visual aids in this bish.
Do not let 7x16′s moment of Alison leading the way while Emily stood there paralyzed deceive you. She was literally #SHOOK when Alison started saying all those things because she never expected to hear it. But I guarantee you after she snapped out of it, she kicked her gears into high drive. Let’s examine the kiss for example, shall we?
IF we were to use the kiss as an example as to who does what, Alison initiated the kiss, yes, but if you notice, her hands pretty much stay in one spot - one on Emily’s face, one supporting her arm. Emily, however, went straight for the sides of Alison’s head with both hands. Right there it shows just a slight demonstration of Emily’s dominance, for a lack of a better word.
Emily has been with many girls, all of different types of personalities. Do you think she got them by being passive? NO. Emily is an Alpha Dog, she knows what she wants, and she goes straight for it. Fetus Emily might have been passive/bottom because she was still coming to grips with who she is. This Emily is a grown woman and very confident in who she is and what she brings to the table. That confidence 100% spills into the bedroom. 100%.
Now, getting into their style, Emily has her moments of dominance but she also has freaking manners. Firstly, lets just peep how Emily always goes for the hair when she kisses Alison. I THINK that’s a natural reflex for Emily because she likes to tug on hair - I’m just keeping it real. But the way she does it shows her manners! She’s letting Alison know that she’ll take care of her, be tender and caress her, but she ain’t afraid of burrowing her fingers and pulling some hair when the time comes.
While she is a top, she is also versatile. She likes Alison to be on top because she likes to see what her girl can do. That is the hottest thing to her. For her to take control, set the pace, all while Emily getting the best view in the house.
In 5x05 she pulled Alison on top, 7x10 Alison was nuzzled on her most likely being on top after their little sess, and in the promo of 7x17 Ali is leaning on top once again. I don’t take this as Alison being the certified top in this relationship, however. Emily doesn’t want Alison to feel like she’s overwhelming her with all of the moves she’s crafted over the years so she let’s Alison be the boss while she lays back in cruise control. Whenever Alison is ready for more and go up a few notches from vanilla, she’ll transform into her true form and show her who Emily Fields™
Also, let’s not forget Emily is a damn athlete. Athletes have endurance, stamina, coordination, and are always putting in work during performances. That’s embedded in their brain and they do it subconsciously. Have you seen Emily’s arms? She might have a bum shoulder but I guarantee you she won’t hesitate to carry Alison’s ass to the bed, okay?
There is a reason we, as a fandom, call her Daddy and Alison is about to experience that shit real fucking fast when Emily got one hand gripping the back of her neck and the other knuckles deep inside her. Emily has a way of making you feel surrounded
Billy’s reaction to seeing Sana cry was very, very pure. “Knowing that one of your best friends is with your crush.. is not a good feeling” yes, Billy.
*Thinks Sana will hack Noora’s email and do something stupid * I am excited for Billy to see William. Oh god, oh dear god!!
I noticed while watching Billy’s reaction to this season that how predictable season 4 was.I love angst so I did enjoy all the Russ bus drama and stuff but the sudden cop out in episode 8 was what pissed me off the most If they’d made at least 1 more episode to clear everything out… oh, well.
Totally knows there’s nothing going on between Noora and Yousef. #unhinged
“She wrote about herself?? What Sana is doing is wrong, but she is doing it perfectly.” I loved it, too.
“Girls in this school are like demons. I hope people don’t do this in real life.” Mean girls are ever where Billy, tumblr for one, is full of them.
“Whats the point of the Vilde account then?” beats me, Billy.
Billy, a true Isak stan. Welcome to the club brother.
“Whats the point of the Vilde account then?” beats me, Billy.
Billy, a true Isak stan. Welcome to the club brother.
“Not different on the outside, different in the inside” Nei, Billy..
“So he started the.. OOOOH! Wow.OK.”
“I think it’s safe to say that Isak is definitely the jealous type, he was jealous in season 1, the whole thing with Eva and Jonas”
It’s a believable reason, I bought it. What I didn’t like is the episode 8 quick fix. That messed me up
“Sound like those buddy film, like a road trip movie. To be fair I would watch that about Isak and Sana.” Us, too, Billy. Us too.
For me personally, the most important part of IT 2017 was Billy’s love for his baby brother. I loved the clown as a character when I say love I don’t mean “love” I still wanted the freaking clown to die. I just meant that I appreciated what he brought to the movie plot. But Billy’s love for Georgie was so much more important to me.
Billy a thirteen-year-old CHILD was was willing to go into a house with a demonic monster, ALONE, in the hopes that Georgie might still be alive/kill the clown. It’s great that his friends came to help him and all. But that doesn’t invalidate that he would have gone alone if his friends hadn’t come.
Billy a thirteen-year-old CHILD decided that going into a house with a demonic monster was better than seeing that his baby brother wasn’t home.
Billy a thirteen-year-old CHILD ran after the monster rather than away from it for Georgie’s sake.
Billy a thirteen-year-old CHILD was willing to get eaten by the clown so his friends could escape. And I have no doubt that if he could have sacrificed himself to save, Georgie, he would have done it in a heartbeat.
When Georgie was dragged into the sewers the name he screamed out was Billy. Not mommy. Not daddy. Billy. I know from personal experience that when something bad is about to happen to you, you call out the name of the person you rely on the most. That you trust to protect you the best. Billy must have been one great brother for Georgie to call out to him for help rather than his mom or dad.
It was Billy’s love for Georgie that gave him the strength to overcome his fears.
I know the movie wasn’t as scary as it could have been. But how is Bill’s selfless and fearless love for his baby brother, not worth watching?
I do improv, I love improv and I love seeing how people use non verbal cues as part of their social dynamics. Bands that have been together for a long time are amazing examples of this, while on some level they can “read each others minds” they also have developed non verbal cues that other members of the band can usually easily read.
This entire exchange happens in less than 10 seconds and this is entirely supposition based on what I know from improv/social interaction.
Tre mentions “alternative lifestyles” and Billie smiles. I would guess this is when some idea starts to form. Mike starts to answer the next question. No one is looking at any anyone else and all three of them have relaxed body language (hands in laps, relaxed, legs aren’t crossed etc) despite the weirdness of the interviewer. Given his repeated comments about being worried they are going to prank him, maybe they feel relaxed being in Oakland?
Billie makes an “offer” by putting his hand on Mike’s leg. An “offer” in improv can start a scene or it may spark another offer, which is the case here. (One can assume things would have gone differently if he had put his hand on Tre’s leg instead.) At this point he turns toward Tre. There’s no reason to turn towards Tre, he’s not talking. In fact, it would make way more sense to look at Mike or the interviewer. However, turning towards Tre draws his attention to what he’s doing. Like turning towards a friend who is watching TV, they’ll turn to see what you want. It won’t draw Mike’s attention because Mike isn’t making eye contact and is in fact engaged in conversation with the interviewer.
The hand on his leg could mean multiple things: it enforces the “alternative lifestyles” comment, draws Tre’s attention and draws Mike into the joke without him having to physically turn towards them. Mike, however, does physically shift toward Billie, hand on his as much as possible without breaking contact with the interviewer as he’s still engaged in conversation. Tre makes eye contact with Billie and eye contact is huge. Billie has put out an “offer” and it can be safely assumed at this moment that Tre is on board. Staring at someone is a great way to get their attention without saying anything. Try staring at the back of someone’s head while you’re waiting in line!
Tre acknowledges the offer and makes his own “offer” which Billie accepts. The kiss is the kiss, who am I to break that down, but I find the lead up to it very interesting. Billie could have easily just kissed Tre or Mike, but it looks like there were layers to the offers.
Anyway, this was longer and way more detailed than I expected. Yay body language and non-verbal cues.
So watching those old snapchats where Becky and RJ pranked the other cast members with silly string and streamer-ing Dacre's trailer, I headcanon Trini and Billy teaming up to pull off small pranks on the other rangers. Like Trini puts up a tough front, but she loves a good (harmless) prank.
Every time she comes up with a prank she gives Billy this look and smiles and the other three Rangers groan because they’ve learned what that look means and they prepare for the worst.
And you know Trini loves pranking Zack the most but then she realizes how much of a mistake it was when Zack convinces Kimberly to help him get back at her because Kimberly will 100% not hold back and it turns into a prank war. Then Trini starts getting extra nervous every time Kimberly walks up to her because she gets all flirty and touchy with the intention of freaking Trini out by having her think she’s got some big prank planned but she just likes to mess with her.
Jason gets lucky when the prank war starts because he’s the only one who hasn’t picked a side so he isn’t a target for either side. But when the prank war ends, they all team up and they all prank Jason together (they fill his bedroom with silly string and streamers like with Dacre) and Billy keeps apologizing even though it was his idea.
“And you think I have the power to do something like that… Because you believe Tommy and I really are the sons of the Scarlet Witch?”
“Here we go…”
“Tommy has doubts, but how else do you explain a speedster and a witch named “Thomas” and “William” who could be twins?”
What, it’s been months and Tony can’t be bothered to fork a few hundred dollars and have you two DNA tested? You’re going to tell me that at the very least the two of you still haven’t confirmed you’re twins? Or that SHIELD or Tony Stark himself doesn’t have a DNA sample for one of their longest timed members turned most feared mutant on the planet?
No one’s given anyone a paternity test?
But I suppose that level of thinking would also mean like… Tommy and Billy having to think of how weird it is to be on a team with a teenage version of their former kind of dad?
Nevermind, it’s okay, that’d be a weird thing to think about. Leave this giant plot hole in its place instead.
I do love Billy calling out the Avengers on the hypocrisy of how they handle people though. I always love when heroes get called on these things because it’s like. At least the writer’s can admit that they’re making the characters contrived to justify what they’re doing. And you can feel that way and still love the characters on the receiving end.
I’m emo about this, I binged the season with Billy, unlike season 3, I haven’t watched season 4 a lot, and it was fun to see Billy’s reaction and a different perspective. I feel like, I’m getting there, ready to let go of Skam, but I’ll always be in love with Skam. I have watched many, many shows before, but, Skam introduced me to the fandom culture and I loved it. I will be sticking by for some time, but I can see the 24hr urge to check whats happening in the fandom is dying down a little bit. I have met some incredible people with interesting perspectives and some who are just so in love with Henrik and Tarjei which could be defined as border line creepy, but I think it’s cute.I love some of the fan fics and fan arts so much and I’m grateful to for that experience as well. So here we go, back to Billy!
Billy starts the season off with the impression that it’s going to be a Vilde centric episode.
“I’ve said this before and I’ll say it again, Sana and Vilde’s friendship, from the first time they met to now - is incredible.”
“Aww, she’s taking care of her mom. Now, it makes sense, why she never hosted a party.”
Ulrikke’s acting in this is so good, I remember not being able to shake an uncomfortable like feeling for hours after this clip.
Next: “Who dat?”
“You shouldn’t introduce yourself when you’re naked, WHAT?” in Norway, you do, apparently.
*pauses the clip*
“Are you fucking kidding me?Out of ANY girl on the show, it had to be HER?“
“Bad enough they brought William back, you had to bring EMMA too? Is Nico going to show up as well?”
“And why would Jonas date her, after she completely outed Isak to everyone?”
“Why do I feel like this was only a thing because they were like.. we need to get Jonas a girlfriend, OK, but who? Let’s bring back the most hated girl on the show, GENIUS!”
It’s a delight to see how obvious Billy’s favoritism for Isak is. I love it.
“They better not bait me into the whole Jonas x Eva thing. I gave up that a while ago.” Billy, NO!
*Shook over how deep that was.It really was.* It really was.

that is perfect. Today,
the ideals went out of fashion and we are trying to show the world our

his faded jeans in the dim light of the inappropriate lamp, Cole was smoking a cigarette. Smoke was enveloping the room, casting
a light atmosphere of carelessness. The cigarette was almost burned out, but he
wasn’t in hurry. Thoughts were dancing in his head, covered with cigarette
smoke. He leaned back in his armchair and let the white smoke of his cigarette

fact that at that moment he was sitting in Lili’s hotel room was a little bit

bottle of her favorite perfume on the bedside table, he could not resist. It

She closed the door slowly and turned back around, freezing in astonishment.

annoying. The noise of the cars on the street was talking about the existence
of the world outside the hotel room, which was spinning above them. A bottle of

closer and took her hand in his, looking at her indecision on thin, trembling
fingers. He looked up and noticed peachy lipstick on her lips that was
difficult to notice from afar. Her eyes were talking about something very
important. It is a pity that in the dim light it was impossible to solve.

He touched her peachy lips slowly, trying to do it carefully. Her inconsistent
breath hurt him, but just for a moment.

the perfect combination which people usually despise. Someone’s going to argue,
but I will say that, after all, they were the exception to the rule.

most amazing things that you will never see in the light of day. Maybe
separately they are quite different, but together they make a perfect

fashion dictated us new rules, even new rules had its exceptions.
And holy crap I loved it. In fact I think I loved it slightly more than I loved Wonder Woman simply because Wonder Woman still had too many dark moments and not nearly as much fun. Power Rangers had absolutely everything I wanted and so much more.
It had actual real, totally bitchin’ chemistry between Jason, Billy, Kimberly, Trini and Zack and I loved it from start to finish.
It had a canon confirmed queer character in Trini and she seriously was struggling with her identity and coming out, and it was beautiful to watch.
It had amazing representation in Billy, Zack and Trini too and so much so that we can say that more of the Power Rangers are non-white than are, and that is amazing.
It had immensely strong female characters in Kimberly (especially Kimberly), Trini and even Rita Repulsa, which I think is amazing!
It had coming of age written all over it. It had Jason, struggling with being on a pedestal and wanting to be something different and more than what everyone put him up to be. It had Kimberly, making a mistake she wanted to take back, but shedding a toxic environment to make herself better and accepting the consequences of that - she didn’t run away even though she wanted to. It had Trini struggling with coming out to who she was and wanted to be. It had Billy, struggling to find the courage to be who he was without his dad around everyone else. And it had Zack, who masked the pain of his mother slowly slipping away by acting out and acting not true to himself.
It even had a confirmed, canon autistic black man in Billy, who was definitely one of my favourite characters.
And it didn’t make Jason Scott boring or cliche or anything like that. He wasn’t anything I was expecting. I can honestly say, I’m glad he’s the Red Ranger, because he deserves it. He made me like him, love him in fact. I love Jason, I love Kimberly, I love Billy, I love Trini and I love Zack.
One thing that I love most about this film, is how open and unafraid and caring it is to the audience.
It does not force Kimberly and Jason together, there’s no romance between them, there’s a deep-seated friendship and mutual feeling for the want to run. They also don’t force ship Trini and Zack, there’s that same understanding about being the not perfect children and stuck in a bad home because of one reason or another. They both act out because they feel like their parents maybe cheated them - Zack because he knows his mother is dying and Trini because her parents don’t approve of her, they don’t understand her.
What the film does, is it allows you to ship whoever you want. They give them all enough emotion with each other to do that. Billy and Jason have tonnes, but Billy has it with Kimberly and Zack and Trini too!
And of course, my favourite part in the movie, well, two parts. 1. Trini and Kimberly with the donut and their lil glance during the training montage. And 2. When the played the fricking theme tune when the Zords rolled out. Holy crap the smile on my face.
So on the whole, I actually like Saban’s Power Rangers (2017) more than Wonder Woman (2017) for multiple reasons. This movie was amazing and I’m definitely going to watch it a lot lot more.
So 5x11 cleared that 0.01% doubt I had that Tina will be Oliver 'new' love interest trial. She isn't going to be his love interest, she is just his second chance in a way like Rene and Rory are, so Tuna is in team now! Find Black Canary task is checked now Susan is gonna disappear soon and Felicity is gonna go dark! Oliver is gonna be her light this time!!!! OMG! we will be seeing Olicity reunion but this time with Oliver saving Felicity from darkness! What are your thoughts on it?
Sorry I didn’t get around answering sooner. I just wanted to see a few scenes myself before responding. Now that I did I can say that I absolutely agree. Oliver and Tina were really not set up as possible lovers, at least not for now. I mean… I actually don’t believe it will ever happen (I really don’t!), but things might change (probably not, but you never know). :D
When I woke up on Thursday I read about a lot of people commenting on how Oliver said Tina was his second chance and how they had a scene in the office with a lot of light like a parallel to Olicity in 5x05. That was why I needed to check myself and I watched a few scenes to decide what I think.
So yeah, for me Oliver and Tina really weren’t set up to be lovers yet. It seemed a lot more like he was taking someone onto the team, someone who a) wasn’t very happy to join it in the first place and who actually needed convincing and who is b) very much broken right now, much more than Oliver still is.
The second thing leads me to the scene in the office at the end. I don’t think it was anything similar to Olicity’s scene in 5x05 because while Olicity was bathing in dazzling light, like really when you watch the scene it’s like you need sun glasses or you wonder if the whole thing was overexposed because people didn’t know what they were doing (they totally did because that light was there for good reasons!), the light in the scene between Oliver and Tina in 5x11 was much more the normal light that comes from the window. Only half of their faces were lightened by it, while the other was in the dark. For me that just looked like two people who both have some darkness still in side of them, but who also still or again have some light. And as the scene comes to an end and the camera is outside of the window it focuses on the light part of them because they agree to work together and do good. For me that whole scene was just showing how Oliver shared an absolutely non-romantic moment with someone very similar to him, inspiring this person to become better and focus on the light like he does this season.
So yeah for me this really was just two team mates talking, no future lovers.
I actually still think from what we have seen of Tina she might start something with Wild Dog, especially given the background we might get on him losing his wife and child. That is something that they could connect over. They both lost the person they loved romantically.
Anyway, I think Stephen didn’t lie when he said “Billy needs to die first” for Olicity to move. Of course it is not about Billy dying because that guy would have been dumped sooner or later anyway. We already saw the cracks in what they had in 5x09, at least that is how I feel about it. Anyway, that Stephen meant, I think, was much more about Felicity finally doing something that will really make her break eventually.
These last two episodes gave us more movement on Olicity and their story than most of what we have seen all this season together. They are fighting, they are making up and they are finally talking to each other again… or not given Felicity’s secret. It’s kind of a little secret so far, but I guess it will soon grow while it is taking her deeper into the darkness.
It really is going to be great to see Felicity going back to old days and unleashing all her bottled up anger, frustration and heartbreak on Prometheus, making terrible mistakes and letting the darkness consume her in the meantime. I know Emily will be great. Her performance especially in 5x10 was one of her best I think. It was dark, yet not too dark and still a lot Felicity.
Anyway, I do think that wherever the darkness will take her, it’s going to be interesting to see Oliver’s reaction. He knows it isn’t his priviledge to be dark and make mistakes, but it will be hard for him to watch Felicity struggling so badly. He might also get angry for a moment because he and Felicity are limited to being work partners right now. They aren’t together anymore and you can’t really be friends with your ex, so they are just close partners in crime even if the line between being that and being friends is a thin one. Anyway, lying about the Pandora’s files means that she doesn’t even trust her work partner in this right now. And yeah, that might bring up some issues that still aren’t really discussed between them I think. It might even get quite ugly for a moment or two, BUT – and this is an important but – it can only get better once all issues are talked out and solved. They can’t be ignored because that is what made them drift so far apart since 4x15.
At the end Oliver’s new hope and his new trust will help Felicity to find her way back into the light and to overcome the pain about what has happened and the regret of what she has done. It will take some times and we will have to suffer in the meantime (Reporter Chick is still there), but we are going to see Olicity reunite eventually, however long it takes. I have never been surer.
P.S.: One thing I would like to say about Susan and the writers saying that she will be a source of hope for Oliver. I do think that it’s much more him projecting his growth like the new found hope on her. Felicity always prompted him to be better, but he isn’t with Felicity anymore and given how little they actually talk and in what place Felicity is right now, she isn’t harnessing his light that much anymore. She does still harness it in a way I guess, but she is not the main reason for Oliver’s growth which is great because Oliver’s growth now is really just because of him. There is nobody to stand next to him and tell him to become better and how to do it. He is growing because he accepts both parts of himself, Oliver Queen and the Green Arrow. He also sees why he is doing is and does it because he wants it and not because people expect it of him. Oliver just isn’t used to himself growing without any help because he was struggling with his darkness too much until now. That is why he projects his growth onto Susan like he did in 5x09 I think. Sure, if she won’t betray him and feel inspired by him, he will see hope that people can change and that he can change, but again it won’t be really Susan that’s the hope. It will much more be about the fact that he finally is the inspiration he always hoped he would be. Oliver just needs to see that he is growing because of his new found hope and his new found will to make the city a better place. It’s not about Susan. It’s not about Felicity. It’s about nobody but him. And that might be my lifeline in this season of pain and slight separation of the core characters. I hope he will see this, Oliver accepting that his growth comes from within him, soon.
So not that long ago I realized that I’ve written over 100 short stories and little things on here, idk how it is for most writers but I always have a few that I still think about, the ones I really like, that spoke to me, so in no order here are the stories of mine I hope you read (and also why)
Jason and Wonder Boy. I don’t get to write cute Robin!Jason very often so that was fun, but also it has my original Character Nicky, the transgender teenage Wonder Boy.
Billy calls Batman “Dad” first off it’s just cute but secondly I don’t get to write Batdad very much and this is the Batdad i think I’m most proud of
Billy Batson as Harley Quinn’s sidekick for whatever reason I think Billy dressed like Harley from the movie is really funny and it’s a cute idea, with Damian awkward crushing on a boy in too much make up and short shorts
Jason get’s struck by lighting, I’ve always had a problem with the Red Hood, and I liked the Wizard Shazam talking to Jason, and showing how even gun and murder Jason is a good person on a bad path.
Jason rips his pants like I said I like Robin!Jason, and I’m really pleased with the original character in it and the idea of a in world Robin fandom is adorable and fun
Nico and Will out for ice Cream, I don’t get to write a lot of Camp Half Blood stuff and this just turned out really adorable and I like the ice cream making character I made up he’s fun
Cyrus has an allergic reaction, I did literally two Andi Mack themed stories, like them both but this one is my favorite because the imagine for poor Cyrus having to pull down his pants in front of everyone is so funny, and feels very much like an episode
Percy Jackson/DC crossovers, I love each one of these, I love Tim as a demigod, I love Billy Batson just hanging at camp I love everything, also Toby is an original character I’ve had in my head a very long time
Same stuff as before. I’m tired and want to sleep but also wanted to get this out to you guys. I never expected anyone to ever read what I write and to have people give me stuff to write about is crazy.
Like always if you’ve got something to say go ahead. I would prefer if it’s negative your private message me but if you think it’s a big enough deal go ahead and comment on it. I try to be as accurate as possible but I only know so much. Anyway on with the story.
***** in the dance studio *******
“Trini I swear to god if you don’t talk to the pretty lady co-owner I will. We have maybe 2 times left here before the studio opens up again. It’s now or never T.” Zach finished packing up his gear and waited for Trini by the door.
“Whatever Zach. Let’s go.” Trini walked through the dance studio doors and straight to the exit. She didn’t stop till she was outside and noticed she was missing 1 Zach and 1 Billy. She didn’t know what Zach had dragged poor sweet Billy into but if it had anything to with the hot owner lady, she’s gonna be pissed.
****** at the receptionist desk ******
“Hi. I’m looking for the co-owner. The lady one.” Zach clarified his answer as Billy shifted uncomfortably next to him. Billy knew that Trini would be pissed at them but the girl deserved this.
“Why?” Jason intervened the question. Since neither boy could see Kim from her place on the floor this gave him a chance to save her heart, if needed.
“Well to be frank my dance partner thinks she’s hot. And I was hoping to set them up, if the hot co-owner is into the female ki-” Zach said before Billy interrupted him.
“I think what Zach here is trying to say is that Trini finds the other co-owned, Kimberly, beautiful. And through this he is hoping that her feelings would be returned and it could led to the two ladies going out together. Like on a date.” Billy tried to save the situation by making things sound less unprofessional.
“Well Kim has found this Trini attract-” Both ladies shouted something. Kim’s was more along the line of ‘Thank you Jason I’ve got it from here’. Whereas Trini’s was more 'Zach prepare to die’. Both women snapped their heads to look at the other. Jason, Billy, and Zach took this as their signal to leave the desk area.
The women slowly moved towards each other. Almost like they were sizing the other up.
“Trini Gomez.” She stuck her hand out towards the taller woman.
“Kimberly Hart. It’s a pleasure to meet you Trini.” Kim shook her hand very stiffly.
“So, did you hear what the guys were talking about earlier?…” Trini asked as she ran her hand through her hair.
“Um, yeah parts of it. And it’s ok if you don’t feel the same. I understand. You and Zach seem happy together.” Kim put on the best smile she could muster up.
“Oh no. No no. Zach and I aren’t together. We will never ever be together. ~He’s~ not really my type….”
“What does that mean your type is?…” Kim hoped and prayed that her type was female.
“Well I like people who are taller than me, people who are in shape, people who own gyms, and people who are female…” Trini hoped her answer was t to awkward or cheesy.
“Well it sounds like I’m just your type then. How about dinner tomorrow night?” Kim knew she may have jumped the gun with asking her out for dinner, but the early gay gets the lady.
“I’d love that.”
Hope you guys liked it. I liked writing it. Once again the prompt is from @bostonpahtee and I don’t know why it’s not tagging them but I’m tired and want sleep.
I’m still working on the other stuff so don’t wordy guys most if not all of the prompts will be answered. Later my dudes.
