Confession booth - Jack, Lori and Thomas

Jack: “Justine is such a bitch. Someone needs to wake her up. It’s been smooth sailing for her so far, but I truly hope she’ll be getting a hard time later on. She needs to learn about true hardship!”

Lori: “I feel like so far, I am the best fisher around here. Everyone else is just so slow, at least I managed to catch some fish before I gained my skillpoint. Fuckin noobs can’t do anything right. Especially Thomas who only caught miniature fish. I think he deserves another slap.”

Thomas: “This is what surviving is all about. Taking care of our own garden, fishing up our food. I love it! It’s the best way to spend time here and it also keeps me safe from social interaction with all those lunatics here…”

Some thoughts on the Maheswaran mother-daughter relationship

Connie looked so much like Dr. Maheswaran in this episode.

It’s adorable because in the canon time of the show, she’s picked up on her mother’s mannerisms in the way that a decade of living with her did not. It’s shows how much they’ve grown together as a family, and how their relationship has changed.

Considering this was how she looked in her first appearance:

There’s a marked change not only in design but also in her expressions.

And it’s been hinted at before, but in this scene, she so explicitly worries about her mother the way her mother worries about her. It’s very touching, especially because we know they started out caring about each other but not understanding one another. Because you  can love someone and never try to understand them. It leads to a lot of conflict but both parties can still come out of it feeling like they did what was “best” for the other.

Connie used to think it was better that her mother knew nothing so the latter wouldn’t worry about her. And Dr. Maheswaran wanted to be on top of everything so that Connie would have an easier life. 

What we learn from them is that to be able to love someone better, we open up to them and let them open up to us. Connie used to act as though her parents were infallible, or at the least, able to manage themselves. Over time, and in this episode, she’s shown to be worried about them because she knows they’re human beings too. They can get hurt, make mistakes, and put themselves in danger.

Knowing these things puts the other person in perspective. It makes their place in our lives mean more. And it makes it harder to take the people we love for granted.

So I would say Connie and her mother interact a lot more now. They probably talk about each other’s days. Notice how even Dr. Maheswaran talked about everything that happened to her prior to picking Connie up. She believed her daughter deserved an explanation. And that’s a far cry from the mother who would proudly bring out the “Because I said so,” and “We’re doing this because we love you,” cards in Fusion Cuisine.

Not everyone has this experience with their parents. Sometimes things just happen to drive parents and children apart. But in their case it worked out, and now they each have one more person who will always be there for them.

When Connie told her mother that Steven just came from outer space, there was no incredulous reaction. Only an, “Oh?” in an interested and calm tone. 

They’re both trying. And I’m certain they still have their share of disagreement, but it’s dealt with in a much healthier way now.

i may or may not have totally tweaked her face lol shh

another Wholesome Thing i appreciate abt guardians vol.2: 

gamora was given the opportunity to be soft and emotional and fill the role of “squad mom” without sacrificing her brutality, strength, or violent tendencies, and simultaneously had an individual arc that was separate and independent from that role. like, there’s a lot of quotes and interviews where they talk abt how gamora became everyone’s mom in guardians 2 and i almost dislike that there’s a chance people will see those things outside the context of the movie itself, bc yes, she co-parents the squad with peter, but it’s a natural, organic role development for both of them, and her individual character is not sacrificed at all for her to be shoehorned into the traditional feminine role of nurturing mother. you get to see her develop and show those hints of softness and silliness that she displayed in the first film, naturally, easily, as a result of her growing bond with her new ragtag family, yes. and that’s good. they didn’t make her do anything there that she wouldn’t have realistically done. but you also get to see her have a separate arc that adds emotional depth to her character via her interactions with nebula, and, on top of that, nothing about her parenting role is actually inherently gendered on-screen. hell, one could argue that both peter and gamora are squad moms and squad dads, just because liike …. they’re there. they’re looking out for everyone. they’re waving at groot mid-battle and making sure he puts on his seatbelt. there’s nothing specifically male or female about those interactions, but they are reminiscent of parents.

so i guess my point is that i really appreciated that gamora got the chance to be a momfriend without that role being explicitly a “woman’s role”, that she got to be soft and gentle and loving and silly without it forcing her into a Feminine Box or stripping her of her other characteristics – her awkward earnestness, her brutality, her physical strength, her fierce loyalty. i really appreciated that she got to be a full, fleshed out character, clearly coded as co-leader of the team, peter’s equal and partner in all possible ways, with her own individual arc and a more subtle arc that was intimately tied into her caring relationship with all the members of her family. all without once being sexualized.

ShootWeek: Day 4 ↳ favorite Shaw friendship(s)

I love heteronormativity

Kara and Lena: Do lots of romantic gestures, support each other, flirt, stare lovingly at each other…

The media: Awww such good friends. Too bad they’re destined to be enemies and all that.

James and Lena: Interact 3 seconds in a profesional enviroment.

The media:

I know it’s going to happen and I have to accept it but it still makes me mad that everyone is speculating and asking Katie and Mehcad about it just because he was nice to her and she smiled.

Now  suddenly they see sparks and love in the air. Can’t a female character and a male character interact without it being inmediately seen as romantic? And why when we do it with two female characters that actually have lots of romantic gestures they think it’s just the fans being delusional?

Headcanon: Meeting your dad, Tony Stark, for the first time

Originally posted by fuckyeahtonystark

  • Your mother had been in the hospital for months, and you both knew she wasn’t going to get any better. A few weeks before she passed, she finally opened up about your parentage.
    • “I should have told you sooner. You shouldn’t have to find out just because I’m not gonna be here any longer… You’re a Stark, darling. Tony Stark is your father. He doesn’t know. I’m sorry for not telling you sooner.” 
  • You were shocked needless to say
  • A month after her funeral you realized that you couldn’t quite make it on your own. At least, you couldn’t afford to live in an apartment in NYC by yourself. And unfortunately you didn’t really have anyone you could share an apartment with. Not that you trusted anyway. 
  • It still took you another week and a half to build up the courage to walk into Stark Tower. 
  • But once you were in the doors your head was held up high and you marched right up to the receptionist. 
    • “I’d like to see Mr. Stark. It’s urgent. I won’t take no for an answer.” 
  • She seemed less than amused, pursing her lips and point to a chair in the lobby. 
    • “Take a seat. He’s busy, but I’ll send up the memo. Don’t get your hopes up, kid.” 
  • You huffed in annoyance, plopping down in the seat and fiddling with your phone. 
  • About a half hour later a grumpy looking, definitely dyed-red head stepped before you. Her arms were crossed as she gazed threateningly down on you. 
    • “Are you the one hacking into Stark’s system?” 
  • You masked your embarrassment at being caught with a cocky smirk and  a shrug. 
  • She sighed, grabbing your arm and pulling you towards the elevators. 
    • “Tony’s going crazy trying to find you. You managed to hide your tracks pretty well. Well, at least your precise location. I figured it was just an impatient person trying to meet with him, since you were hacking specifically into his calendar for today.” 
  • She lead you up towards the top of the tower, officially within the “Avengers” part of the tower, and towards what you later realized was Tony and Bruce’s lab. 
  • You are kind of in shock when you see your father standing before you, that you don’t hear anything he is saying. You don’t seem to register that this man is scolding you and sassing you and asking you questions until Bruce steps forward, placing a hand on Tony’s shoulder to get him to stop talking. 
  • Bruce takes your father’s place before you, brows furrowed in concern. 
    • “You alright, kid? Sorry about Tony. He’s not gonna do anything to you, I promise. Are you alright?” he’s asking you, clearly noticing you’re experiencing some shock. 
  • You fiddle nervously with your rings, phone, whatever your hands can get on. Finally you look Tony in the eyes, noting the concern and confusion within them. 
    • “I thought about what I’d say to you, if I ever met you, for years. Should I go cheesy? Should I make a joke? Should I try to make it a movie-worthy moment? Honestly, none if it seems right… Mr. Stark you’re my father.” 
  • You were positive that you caused him to have a heart attack, but JARVIS later assured you it was a short anxiety attack. Still not good, still not comforting. 
  • After kicking everyone out of the lab and locking just the two of you inside, Tony proceeded to drill you with questions. He pulled up every record on you possible, plucked a strand of your hair for a DNA test, and used every other means possible to make sure you weren’t lying to him. 
    • He later explained it wasn’t because he didn’t want you as a daughter, but that he was kind of paranoid after everything that had happened to him. He just wanted to make sure no enemy of his had somehow hired you to come here and rattle him. 
    • You still called him a dick for not trusting you. 
  • When he was well satisfied that you were definitely his daughter and that you had come here of your own accord, Tony stood there staring at you silently for a few moments. You assumed he was just finally processing the information. 
  • He moved so quickly to pull you into a bone crushing hug that your first reaction was to try and push him away. But soon you were hugging him back, smiling softly as you tried to make sense of what he was saying into your hair. 
    • Something along the lines of, “You’re my kid. You’re my kid. Mine. I helped make you. I’m a dad. Shit, I’m a dad. I will be better than him. Shit, I’ve already missed so many years of your life. Shit, I’m a terrible dad. I’m a dad. You’re my kid.” 
  • A few hours later, hours filled with more hugs and a lot of explaining on your part (Why you were here? What happened to your mom? Why didn’t you come sooner?), Tony called everyone to the living room to introduce you. 
  • The rest of the afternoon and most of the evening was spent getting to know everyone else. You fell in love with your new makeshift family almost instantly. Tony stood off to the sidelines, watching you interact with everyone, his smile growing bigger each time you teased one of them with that signature Stark sass. 
    • “I’m happy for you, Stark. She seems like a great kid. I know you’ll be a great dad. And you have all of us here to help you. Between all of us she’ll be safe and happy,” Steve assured him quietly after noticing the pride and worry mixing in Tony’s eyes. 
  • That night neither you nor Tony wanted to go to bed. The two of you stayed up until the wee hours of the morning, sitting on the couch long after everyone else had fallen asleep, talking and catching up, trying to get to know everything about each other. 
    • You did fall asleep before your father, so he carried you to his own room which thankfully Nat and Clint had prepared for you - one that was just down the hall from his own room. He didn’t even make it to his bed after that though, instead falling asleep on the couch in your bedroom.

how i ship: i love the interaction between these two characters in canon, and would love to see them end up together!

how you ship: i like these two characters separately, i’d love to see them together!

how she ships: these two characters hate each other, i wanna see them together!

how he ships: here are two random characters, let’s make them a ship and see how it goes!

how they ship: i’m going through a rough period and writing about these two characters helps me, i understand it’s not for everyone, but it helps me cope!

how that person ships: i think these two characters could be compatible for (these reasons), i’m gonna (create fanworks) that put them together!

how those people ship: i do not like how canon is progressing, so i am going to disregard it and continue shipping these characters!

how others ship: here are my headcanons about this/these character/s, and this is why i’d think this ship would be good!

how some ship: these two characters are a ship in canon so i’m gonna ship them!

SHIPPING ISN’T ACTIVISM

we all have different approaches to ships and characters, and trying to enforce your views, morals, and beliefs on others is both very narrow minded, and puts a limit on creativity. you should not expect other to conform to your views, but rather understand that others are not there for your fandom experience. 

NO ONE IS RESPONSIBLE FOR THE CONTENT YOU CONSUME BUT YOURSELF. FULL STOP.

Why you should appreciate Nico Yazawa as a character

Nico is my favorite character in Love Live, but she’s hated a lot for misunderstandings. In the anime Nico’s introduced as a third year who is sending Honoka and her friends hate and telling them to give up. I think this is where most people start to write her off as being mean or even just a joke character, which only progresses more when the girls finally do interact with her. She does the “Nico Nico Nii” thing, wants to become the leader of the group and says she’s better than everyone else. This is where a lot of people think she’s annoying, and this is usually the only parts of her personality they point out even though there’s SO MUCH more to her.
We get some backstory later. She had always dreamed of being an idol, however her group failed and the people who joined quit on her. Going back to how she was introduced to us as being mean to the μ’s girls, it’s obvious Nico sees herself in Honoka. Blindly optimistic and hoping for the best, and thinking that she really can become an idol, and Nico thinks that this isn’t possible. Nico failed once before, she doesn’t wanna see it happen again, and being unable to confront her feelings she tells them to give up. She wants to keep Honoka safe and doesn’t want Honoka to lose friends while chasing a hopeless dream. Nico is really shown in this moment to be a truly insecure character who hides behind an over confident attitude because she’s unable to express how she truly feels towards the μ’s girls, and accept them as friends and not just something temporary. You may say, “Well that’s not true! She told her family μ’s were the backup dancers, that proves she’s self centered!” Consider this: in her first year, Nico started an idol group and was hopeful for a positive outcome, so of course she told her family. She would have told them she was an idol, and her siblings would be proud and impressed by her, how could she tell them she failed? So Nico doesn’t, she continues the lie because she has no other choice, she even looks after her siblings on her own most nights. She was afraid of letting them down and not being the impressive older sister they saw her as, so she said μ’s were her backup dancers. At the end of the episode, however, she tells her siblings she’s retiring and joining μ’s. In that moment, Nico accepts them as her friends, her true friends, who won’t abandon her like how she’s been abandoned before.
Now maybe you’re still not convinced Nico is insecure, which is fine, but let’s go back to the more comedic parts of this episode. The parts where Nico is running from the girls and avoiding having them see what she’s doing, she’s trying to hide where and how she lives. Nico’s family is poor, and Nico acts like she’s the best even though she doesn’t come from the best, and her friends might judge her as well. This is a very obvious sign of insecurity, she wants the girls to think she’s rich and all, which is not the case. In one of her school idol diaries, she talks about how she wishes she could invite her friends over but doesn’t want them to judge her (Nico was abandoned by her friends when she initially started an idol group, which is why she’s so emotionally guarded). She takes care of her siblings most nights on her own, because her mom is working. She is caring and tries so hard for her family.
It took her a while to accept that the μ’s girls were her dear friends who wouldn’t leave her side, and it’s important to note Nico has dealt with more than just the loss of her friends. It said in Nico’s school idol diary that her father passed away when she was young. It also says in the school idol diary that her father made the “Nico Nico Nii” thing and never wanted her to stop smiling. She wanted to be an idol so her smile can reach her late father.
Nico is afraid of losing people dear to her, she puts on a smile and confident attitude even if it’s not always true. Nico cares for every girl in μ’s, she even wanted them to continue chasing their dreams after the third years graduate because she wanted the best for them, and wanted them to continue to grow and be happy even if it was without her, even if she wasn’t apart of it. Yet, she’s considered selfish, when Nico has lost so much and puts in so much effort into being an idol, and into her friends happiness.
Nico works hard, and always has. She deserves to be appreciated and loved, she wants the best for everyone no matter what.
TLDR (even though you should), Nico is insecure and hides it behind her idol persona, strives for the best no matter what, and is selfless and caring. I’m proud to call Nico my best girl, I’m proud of her and how far she’s come to achieve her dreams, with her friends by her side. Thank you Nico.

someone’s gonna die in infinity war and I don’t think there’s an easy way out of this one.

If Tony dies, Peter had to deal with losing yet another father figure in his life, and this kid is only 15. He will lose the man he’s considered an idol since he was tiny. He will lose the man who gave him the chance to truly become a superhero. Pepper will lose her boyfriend/fiancé/husband/whatever. She’ll probably feel guilty if they’re not married and even worse if they are. Their relationship has been rocky from the start and she’ll suddenly regret everything she’s done to hurt that man. Happy will lose someone who is arguably his best friend and employer, leaving him with either a job at SHIELD or nothing. Despite them always being at odds with each other, they’re good friends. Steve will lose a man who, although they fought, was one of his closest friends. It will be devastating for him and the rest of the team, no doubt. Rhodey will also lose one of his best friends.

If Steve dies, Bucky will lose his best friend all over again and may not even realize just what’s happening until it’s all over, depending on the scenario in which it happens. Tony will lose a man he’s constantly poked fun at (and always been jealous of) and will regret pushing his buttons constantly. He’ll gain the guilt of another death on his hands and probably wallow in it. Natasha will lose one of the few people who doesn’t seem to hate her and has actually attempted to bond with her. Sam will lose a man he’s grown so close to, a man who he assumed he’d never lose.

If Peter dies (and he better not fuck around with that shit), everyone will be devastated, especially if they’re aware of how young he is. May will lose the son she never really had and the only person she has left anymore. Ned will lose his best friend before he even graduates high school. Tony will lose the kid he’s been trying to raise, trying to make better than him. He’ll have to deal with the immense guilt of letting a fifteen year old kid fight in a war against a intergalactic criminal and getting him killed.

If Clint dies, Natasha will lose the closest person to her. The only person she’s really been able to bond with. The person she’s shared impossible experiences with, ones she’ll never be able to relive. His family will lose a father and a husband, one who tried to get out of this life only to be yanked right back in.

If Natasha dies, Clint will lose the woman he’s closest too (other than his wife (who is total bullshit)). The team will lose one of their best assets and finest spies and definitely suffer without her. Steve will lose one of his closest friends and regret the time he spent arguing with her during the events of Civil War.

If Bruce dies (which I’m not actually sure is possible), Tony will lose one of the few members of the team he held high respects for. The world will lose one of the brightest minds in science and, despite being a giant green rage monster, one of the nicest guys out there. The team will probably freak out due to the fact that Bruce believed he was entirely unkillable and is now dead.

If Thor dies, Asgard will lose their king (I’m assuming he’s properly king) and probably struggle in terms of who should rule, as the two princes have no proper heirs. If Loki is still alive, then he’ll lose a “brother” who he’s finally begun to grow closer to. He may regret his hostile actions (although I have a feeling he may not) but he will likely grieve. If he is still alive, he will also take the throne of Asgard (probably) and I don’t think that’s an ideal situation. The team will also realize that this war literally killed a god and they’re probably all fucked.

If Vision dies (he’s literally an infinity stone??? I’m not sure how that’s gonna work out), Wanda will be devestated, after all, the two are very close. He’s probably one of the few people she’s actually close with and she’ll be down another person (and after losing her brother, I’m pretty sure she’ll be in a bad place).

If Wanda dies, Vision will likely be upset, although I’m not entirely sure how he handles emotions? I’m certain he’ll try his hardest to save her, or worse, not be aware of it happening until later. The team will also be down an important member who could literally control anything they needed her to control.

If Quill dies, the Guardians will lose their captain and one of their best friends. Rocket will probably regret being so damn mean to him and, most likely, cry while denying how upset he is. Groot will feel horrible and Rocket will probably have to comfort him. Drax will mourn the loss of a man as good as that and openly wear his distress, likely fighting even harder than before. Gamora will hide her feelings but channel her pain to fight harder, in honor of the loss of a great man.

If Rocket dies, Groot will literally be lost. He’s one of the few who understands him and they’ve been by each other’s sides forever. I’m sure he’ll blame himself and probably go insane with anger, determined to get revenge on whatever killed him.

If Groot dies, literally everyone will be sad. Who wouldn’t be sad over the death of the sweetest treant ever? Rocket will be devestated, as I said before, they’ve been together forever. Groot is also likely a “teenager” in this movie, so that’ll only make things worse.

If Strange dies, Christine will lose a man who refused to love her back to a thing she barely understands. She’ll likely never truly understand the world he got himself involved in and be left wondering what the hell happened. I’m not sure about how the rest of the team would react, though, as most of them have had no interactions. Thor would be upset because Strange offered to help find Odin, but beyond that I am not sure.

There are obviously more characters I could do this with but this accidentally got ridiculously long so all in all, Infinity War is going to suck for everyone.

anonymous asked:

Hi! I'm genuinely curious as to why you like Jupiter Ascending. I mean no disrespect because I also liked some things about that movie (Sean Bean being a stand out for me), but Mila Kunis' character was really disappointing to me, she was constantly getting saved. I was anticipating this movie because I was hoping for a cool original Sci-Fi movie with a heroine on par with Ripley (or now Rey), and I felt like I didn't get that. I'd love to hear from you!

Thanks for the question! I have no problem with a question like this - you’re being very polite and respectful.

I adore Jupiter Ascending but it certainly has problems, and Jupiter is clearly no Ridley or Sarah Connor. For me, though, that’s almost part of the charm. Jupiter is lethargic and disinterested, and the nature of her upbringing and her financial circumstances mean she has little ambition and no ideas about where she wants her life to go. She’s then drawn into an outrageous space adventure (if you haven’t seen it, Jupiter learns she is the genetic reincarnation of the former queen of the universe - really!) that completely turns her life on its head - she’s overwhelmed and has to either just go with it or have a complete nervous breakdown. She just goes with it and that means she’s rather passive for much of the film, but that - for me - makes it more powerful when she finally does make a stand in the final act and basically decides to sacrifice her life for the sake of Earth. For me, it’s the story of a young woman whose sphere goes from very small and enclosed to vast and all-encompassing. While she’s not an action heroine, she’s principled and good and makes the right choice when push comes to shove. She embodies a very humble kind of bravery that I appreciate.

Beyond Jupiter herself, I love Jupiter Ascending for many reasons. I love the expansive and imaginative world it creates. I love the quasi-Shakespearean interpersonal drama between the millennia-old siblings. I love that so many of the interactions on screen are between women, and that women dominate in Jupiter’s household. I love that it’s shameless girly wish fulfilment, complete with shirtless Channing Tatum roller-blading through the corridors of a palace.

I hope that makes my reasoning a bit clearer! Jupiter Ascending isn’t for everyone, but I really do love it - I feel thoroughly whisked away and entertained every time I watch it.

Hi there, I've noticed a lot of the booklr blogs I follow have been inactive for a while now :( if it's not too much trouble, could you recommend some of your fav blogs to follow?

I feel you my friend! Lots of people have disappeared over time, but there are still plenty of lovely blogs out there! <3

ACTIVE BOOKLRS

Good lordy I should really alphabetize this or something but instead you just get this messy ass list, I’m so sorry everyone lmao if I got anyone’s gender pronouns wrong I AM SO SORRY i wasn’t entirely sure and not everyone has them listed, or I may have just messed up, just let me know and tell me I’m awkward.

I hope people realize that Taylor interacting with people is not a make or break situation in your life. It’s so incredible that she does this but if she isn’t liking your stuff or commenting to you or joining your livestream, your life isn’t over. She doesn’t hate you. It does not determine your worth. I am always so happy for everyone who gets noticed by Tay and it is so frustrating to see others get so upset over it and post negative things. SHE LOVES US ALL. SHE IS HUMAN. SHE IS NOT A ROBOT. SHE CANNOT BE ON EVERYONE’S STUFF ALL THE TIME. Just enjoy it, guys! Don’t get so worked up over it!

The Defenders
  • Just incredible, loved every moment of this series.
  • Started off very nicely introducing us to what everyone’s been doing since we last saw them and took their time to bring them together which I liked because they were each working their own case and it felt like you’d earnt the team up.
  • It just went from strength to strength when we did get the team up as well.
  • That episode 3 fight sequence was one of the best fight sequences I can remember ever seeing (and their previous series had some damn good ones!) although the finale also brought the goods.
  • They really utilised the fight sequences well, using everyone’s specific abilities and they were shot incredibly well, beautiful stuff.
  • Character wise I already loved everyone so there’s no big revelations but my love for Jessica Jones has grown exponentially every episode- what a woman- kicking ass, talking shit to her team mates, getting drunk, what more do you need from a superhero.
  • Jess/Matt the brotp I didn’t know I needed in my life.
  • You just knew Matt couldn’t live very long without putting on the Daredevil suit, his moment with Foggy at the police station had me emotional though and then when he didn’t come back to him and Karen (⊙﹏⊙✿)
  • Danny and Luke are also well on their way to becoming bro’s and I’m thrilled about that.
  • Danny himself had a rough ride through these 8 episodes but I’m excited about where he goes from here.
  • Luke is just the sweetest for the toughest and (maybe) strongest of the team he’s always the last to turn to violence and always just want to help the little guy.
  • The secondary characters of all the series are incredible though and that doesn’t stop with The Defenders; Colleen was kicking ass any chance she got and really shone in the last episode, Claire didn’t have the big role I thought she would in bringing everyone together but she was there the whole time and joined the fight when it mattered and I can’t get enough of that woman, Misty also brought her A-game working the cop side throughout and I’m weirdly thrilled she’s lost her arm now and that she’s gonna be in Iron Fist Season 2 #DaughtersOfTheDragonFeelsIntensify
  • So many incredible character interactions as well, obviously the main four coming together was a big deal but equally important was when they set up the protection service for secondary characters (friends and family/loved ones/whatever they called it) leading to some great cross over moments.
  • I know people love to moan about Marvel villains but I don’t see how they can with The Defenders?!?!?!?!?!
  • Sigourney Weaver as Alexandra was perfection, a wonderful big bad to set up the series although I did kind of love it when Elektra murdered her.
  • Elektra herself is of course always a boss and was putting everyone on their ass from the very first episode.
  • I’m sorry but my MVP always has been and always will be Madame Gao, I don’t know what it is but I love that woman and I’m so glad that after all these years she’s come into the forefront and got to kick some ass herself.
  • The Hand made a lot more sense this time as well, it wasn’t just ninja in the darkness hurting everyone, we got the inner circle, they had a clear history and clear goals to accomplish.
  • Colleen and Danny continue to melt my heart, I love them.
  • Matt and Elektra are also a guilty pleasure of mine and that ending did nothing to extinguish that, a perfect ending for the pair, although I doubt it is and ending for either of them.
  • Whilst I love Claire/Luke so much and their relationship seeing Luke and Jessica together again and exchanging little comments about their time together has me torn.
  • So it had everything, a great plot, great action sequences, great main characters, incredible secondary characters, great villains and was generally done amazingly well all round!

There was something about being at the mall that you absolutely hated. You hated the big crowds, and the pushing through people to go and get things done. You hated feeling strangers bodies brush against yours, but as your boyfriends birthday was coming up you made an exception to go and find him a birthday present.

The birthday present had already been found, a sweater Jimin had pointed out to you a couple days prior. You were sure he was going to like it, as it was from you and it was for him. There was a sense of pride swelling up in you for finding something Jimin would like so much. Your friend’s has come with you, saying they could use a trip to the mall and so here they were.

You followed behind them silently, looking around at all of the people. The mall was always a busy place and that’s why you didn’t like coming here. It was a one time thing and you were definitely willing to sacrifice it to get Jimin something he would love. A small smile lingered on your lips as you watched your friends travel up ahead. They were off in their own worlds and so were you.

You were almost completely distracted by Jimin that it scared you when you felt someone bump into you. Your eyes flickered down to the small body that had run into your own and you could see a small child with tears in his eyes. Your heart reached out to him instantly and as he rubbed his eyes in front of you, you bent down in front of him and gave him a kind smile.

Ok, can we just talk about this?

So in the first photo, is basically all the times where Luna felt like she had no hope in dating Sam (or surprised).
Maybe its just overthinking, but those little moments could mean a big thing: you see, lgbt teens have trouble asking out the same sex for many reasons. She was afraid she may not like girls, could shame her for it, crush her heart, loose hope, or even bully her for it since there is a lot of bullying in lgbt teens.
She was scared to ask a girl out.
She was in love and was insecure.

“Sam’s way outta my league.”
That could mean she didn’t think it’ll work or she won’t like her back.

“You’re the owner of a lonely heart.”
She’s afraid of getting heartbroken.
Luna fears being heartbroken.
Just think of that. Many bi, pan, gay and lesbian women are afraid of finding love cuz they might accidentally fall for heterosexual girls, and you know society’s views on gay women. Not so breezy.
I mean she was afraid to even go and talk to her about it. Not even give her a pick out of fear of rejection.

“I didn’t give Sam a signal.”
Nervous. Probs some anxiety and fear of interacting or rejection.

Second pic- oh. my. god. Look at her!!! That is definitely a look of someone who’s lovestruck. She looks so happy! Looking at it now you can tell she was looking at her but I think that she got so lovestruck that she just froze with a smile on her face.
She also tried to wave at her but Sam didn’t see her which made her think she didn’t care about her and made her loose a lil hope.

3rd- When they think that it’s for Luna, she looks very shocked, which we’d expect since she didn’t try to ask her out, interact, give her a token of affection, or talk about it at all.
You can probs tell what she’s thinking.
“Woah dude… she actually likes me?? I didn’t even give any signs! Has she always liked me? Will I be happy? Will everyone accept it?”
Questions. Surprise and shock.

Last one- and finally, the moments where she smiled or didn’t give up all her hope. I love these pics and especially the ones where she was smiling at her, in love.
Luna, taking a stand and saying that you shouldn’t have to wait for love, but try to go get it for yourself, is powerful.
And she’s brave.
She takes a deep breath, looks at the letter and smiles. Goes up to it and puts it in the locker, hides to see what will happen, and then when she sees her pick it up, read it and smile, she smiled. It was probs a gigantic realise to get that all out and to see the courage she built up did something amazing for her.
She had doubts, but at the end she found love and was finally happy.

This show is way more than what you see. I love it. Thank you Chris. Thank you!
