Whats your opinion on the headcanon that bakugou is hard of hearing because of how loud his explosions are? If you dont mind my asking
I think I answered this q on this blog already? Maybe? But anyway, I don’t exactly mind it, but I can’t say I share the headcanon myself - for one, because I’m of the opinion that their bodies are built to withstand a safe use of their quirks (a bit like you can’t break a leg by simply walking, you know), so in general I’m not a fan of headcanons that include damages caused by simply doing what their bodies were born to do?
But also because generally, even under the assumption that his body isn’t made to hold up with his explosions, isn’t it awfully convenient how only his ears take damage in these scenarios? What about his eyes? How come he can still see with no problems even with the continuous exposure to the explosions’ light? How about his hair? How come he can stand so close to fire without it ever being damaged by it? His palms have thicker skin and we know that thanks to his UA file, but what about the rest of his body? How come he can stand smack in the middle of an Howitzer Impact without getting even slightly burnt? When you say “only his ears aren’t made to withstand his explosions” what you’re telling me is that his whole body is tailord to deal with his quirk but his ears, and that just feels unrealistic to me - by which I mean, when this is the scenario we’re talking about, you can’t give the fault of the damage to Bakugou’s quirk. It’s a problem his body has, not a natural consequence of having that sort of quirk. And imho with those premises you sort of end up with a different kind of story, you’re supposed to write it differently - that’s what I think, at least
Maybe the reason Baku raises his voice so often is because he can’t hear very well, which isn’t due to his explosions, rather, he was born with bad hearing to protect him from taking damage by them.. and then his other senses are sharper to even it out, and his body can even subconsciously notice air vibrations, resulting in really fast reflexes.
Ah, this is also another reason why I’m not a huge fan of the headcanon - don’t get me wrong! If you like it then go on, I’m not trying to stop anyone from enjoying ideas and possibilities!! But personally I like Bakugou not having any reason to be loud-mouthed and rude, that’s just his personality and how the environment he grew up in made him, and lately I’ve seen the hc used to justify his behaviour more than I like? Bakugou being an asshole is just who he is, and I love it! I love that his life made him like that and I love that he’s working hard to fix that flaw, giving him an external reason, something he has no control over, to justify his personality changes the core of his character too much, and that’s not something I’d ever want to do tbh
And it’s also cool to think that he was somewhat genetically engineered to be better in a fight to compensate for a lack of earing (though again, why only his ears and not his eyes or his sense of tact too), but that goes to cut on all the hard work he put in becoming as good as he is, right? If that’s what you like than who am I to stop you! But Bakugou’s hardworking nature is one of the things I love about him, I don’t really feel like taking away from him all the effort and work he put through the years in becoming as good as he is now
Sigma: claims he likes all types of music, but starts twitching if you play top 40 and will physically fight you if you play country
Delta: likes slow ballads and York’s indie trash
Gamma: next level obscure electronic remixes that you’re pretty sure isn’t actually music but a cacophony of sounds. The only time you recognize any of the songs they’re the Kidz Bop versions. You have no idea if this is ironic or not
Omega: screamo but not hardcore metal, like the pop punk screamo garbage that 13 yr olds listen to. Cries when he sees Falling In Reverse live
Theta: any genre of pop. As long as there’s a consistent upbeat beat they can jam. Likes Melanie Martinez a lot
Epsilon: a horrible mixture of top 40, country and emo. Never give Lon the aux cord
Eta: listens to classical to try and calm eir anxiety. It does not calm eir anxiety
Iota: also listens to classical. I don’t know what genre Colbie Caillat is but that.
Alpha: the same as Lon but without the emo. At least, you THINK there’s no emo but then you go three folders deep and find nothing but Dashboard Confessional
Tex: has a rock playlist for when she’s working out. Loves pop country and is not at all ashamed of it.
300+ followers to celebrate! I never have been one to care for keeping track but there are just too many of you that I appreciate for any of you to go unnoticed. I thank you all so much for sticking with me and my muse for Tamaki as we venture through Tumblr together. Now let us celebrate with a few notable shoutouts to my baes!
I love this kid alright but when he does his live shows he underestimates his popularity and I genuinely don’t understand. He has repetitively been saying “people on Tumblr you’re probably like wait, what? who’s this guy? I just followed for the memes and sarcastic humour. Yeah hi nice to meet you now I’ll just be chilling on your dashboard don’t mind me” like WE KNOW YOU, EVERYONE KNOWS YOU. Dan, your are so much more relevant and famous than you think you are. No one on your Tumblr is following you and doesn’t know who you are. No one doesn’t know why your popping up on the YouTube channel and what YouNow is.
P.s. sorry if no one else is bothered by this but I had to get this shit out 😂
I’m just a dumb kid and I wasn’t even born in times of war, but I wanna know why would you kill eight thousand fathers, eight thousand sons, rape thousands of women, thousands of girls? What did you feel that moment? Were you proud of yourself? Do you ever wake up in regret? Do you ever dream about mothers screaming and crying and calling out names of their loved ones? Do you enjoy it? Tell me, please, because I want to know how your mind works. How truly sick are you? Did you flinch when you heard man yelling ’Nermine’?
I hear it every year. My whole country does. It’s on every TV channel, mostly used to increase viewership. And you can only hear it on 11th of July, because after that media forgets, and people of Srebrenica are left alone to experience horrors of war every night. People outside of country don’t care at all. I have never seen documentary on Discovery channel or read a post on my dashboard that even mentions Srebrenica. I don’t even need it, I only want people to care, to acknowledge what happened and stop denying it, and I want those who are guilty to be punished. I want them to feel the pain of mother burying her months old child, or pain of sister who still haven’t found remains of her brother, pain of a woman who got pregnant while soldier raped her and her kid is everyday reminder of what happened. Don’t forgive them God, they knew what they were doing.
(My writing is horrible and my English is even worse, but I needed to say this.)
i know this isn't really related to your art but how do you figure out when ship weeks are? like lol i don't know anything about them and then ur like haha kiribaku week y'all and i am confuddled please share your magic
… so you know how tumblr (the site itself, I mean) has that kind of one track mind for which once you start following one (1) blog related to Thing it’ll start suggesting you all the blogs about Thing? I’m the type of person to go “… why the heck not” and click on the follow button of every single one of those suggestions so now I kind of follow most of the blogs related to the ships I’m on, which means that the posts about the weeks are kind of bound to happen across my dash one or a hundred times in a row
👍👍👍👍 the magic is having no implulse control at all my dashboard is a magical disaster 👍👍👍👍
Why are scorpio people important? ♏
Boi, this ask confused me for a while haha but you’re referring to that old Futakuchi doodle, right? It’s because it’s my sign, anon~ I love all my signs a lot for unknown reasons, so when I find out a character is a scorpio I’m like oooooooohhhhhhhhhhh new child haha
I have not written a Harry Potter meta in ages. But, as The Cursed Child hit the bookstores and Fantastic Beasts will arrive in November, there has been an awakening of sorts on my dashboard regarding the Harry Potter fandom. Long lost are the days when we were contented with reading Drarry, now we love to take apart every-single-detail and analyze it. Harry Potter is problematic, let’s all agree on that, and move on.
What I want to talk about here was partially initiated by @severussnapeisourking‘s post about Sirius murderous tendencies and @lily-mj-fae‘s response. This is in no way a direct response to any of the points they have made about either Sirius or Snape, but it does highlights some issues about the use of violence, particularly that of magical nature, and the normalization of said violence. Ok, that last bit was mine, not theirs. My opinion is that the presence of magic trivializes the acts of violence that are present in the books.
What I want to get across is the fact that some fucked-up shit happens at Hogwarts and everyone is ok with it. Sirius’ big-fucking-ass-murder-attempt is just one more thing in the long list of cases in which, upon re-reading the books, we should go: isn’t this going a bit too far?
No one is excepted of this, whether you are a Death Eater, Order of the Phoenix or DA. Take the Weasley twins, for example (OOTP, 28):
“Malfoy just docked us all about fifty points,” said Harry furiously, as they watched several more stones fly upward from the Gryffindor
hourglass. “Yeah, Montague tried to do us during break,” said George. “What do you mean, ‘tried’?” said Ron quickly. “He never managed to get all the words out,” said Fred, “due to the
fact that we forced him headfirst into that Vanishing Cabinet on the
first floor.” Hermione looked very shocked.
“But you’ll get into terrible trouble!” “Not until Montague reappears, and that could take weeks, I
dunno where we sent him,” said Fred coolly. “Anyway … we’ve decided
we don’t care about getting into trouble anymore.” “Have you ever?” asked Hermione.
(Rowling, 2003: 627)
Even if you want to get expelled, this is effing brutal. The Order of the Phoenix (2003)has some other examples regarding this kind of behavior. Hermione’s affair with the parchment of the Dumbledore’s Army is pretty strong as well. The first issue that arises is, obviously, that Hermione never tells anybody about the jinx:
“They can’t have done,” said Hermione in a low voice. “You’re so naive,” said Ron, “you think just because you’re all honorable
and trustworthy —” ‘ “No, they can’t have done because I put a jinx on that piece of
parchment we all signed,” said Hermione grimly. “Believe me, if anyone’s
run off and told Umbridge, we’ll know exactly who they are and
they will really regret it.” “What’ll happen to them?” said Ron eagerly. “Well, put it this way,” said Hermione, “it’ll make Eloise Midgen’s
acne look like a couple of cute freckles. […]” (Rowling, 2003: 354)
The second issue has to do with whether the dimention of Hermione’s punishment. We know that by chapter 38, Marietta Edgcombe is “wearing a balaclava” (Rowling, 2003: 865) and that, at the begging of Half-Blood Prince she “was wearing a very thick layer
of makeup that did not entirely obscure the odd formation of pimples
still etched across her face.” (Rowling, 2005:142).
Why is any of this a trivialization of violence? Because our heroes accept it. Harry smirks slightly (Rowling, 2005: 142) at the sight of Marietta’s scars even though we know from Cho Chang that her mother works at the Ministry and is having a difficult time.
This trivialization includes Sirius’ behavior and Dumbledore’s response to Sirius being a reckless, self-centered prick. Honestly, get a grip Dumbledore. It also includes the fact that Snape made the Sectumsempra Curse most likely when he was in his sixth year of Hogwarts and annotated: “For Enemies” (Rowling, 2005: 447-448). Not only that, but the fact that he’s used it so often that Lupin was able to recognize it in Deathly Hollows (2007)as his trademark:
“He lost an ear,” said Lupin. “Lost an—?” repeated Hermione in a high voice. “Snape’s work,” said Lupin. “Snape?” shouted Harry, “You didn’t say—” “He lost his hood during the chase. Sectumsempra was always a speciality
I believe that, in many instances, magic makes violence banal. The line between what’s considered a joke and what’s considered standard prank is often “blurred” (Merlin, I do not want to sound like Robin Thicke). Like the twins trying to make an Unbreakable Vow with Ron.
I don’t want to get into the discussion of “who’s better Sirius or Snape”. I think my answer would be pretty obvious. But I’d like to point out that the imbalance between the “pranks”/“punishments” and the objective implications of those actions (Marietta’s scared face, Lupin’s trauma, etc.) is a constant feature in the Wizarding World. Maybe they are so used to magic that going so out of line might not be considered a “bad” thing. I think of it as the problem with gun regulation in the USA: in many ways it is easier to see how strange -even unthinkable- the second amendment is because I do not live in a pro-gun country, I was not raised somewhere where people carry guns in the street. At the end of the day the kettle should not call the pot black. Within the narrative, some of those actions are justified (after all, Marietta is nothing but a traitor in the end) and some others are unjustified (like the Sirius and Snape encounter*), but they all exist.
*It is significant, though, that we never get to see that scene play out; we see SWM twice, once in OOTP and once in “The Prince’s Tale” in DH, yet this scene that -at least from Snape’s point of view- should be so poignant in his relationship with James is lost.
If you follow me, please take a few minutes to let me persuade you...
You NEED TO WATCH THE GET DOWN.
So, I’ve been letting this brew in my head a while, trying to figure out how to put it out there in a way that will be well-received and persuasive, because it’s really fucking important, guys.
Everyday, my dashboard is inundated with posts demanding more POC representation in our media. We’re outraged at the white-washing of popular characters in Hollywood, we bemoan the lack of diversity in the shows we love, we seize on every show that comes along that has more than one POC (and oh my god, if we have more than one ethnicity being portrayed??? Does such a thing exist?)
Of course, just because it has diversity doesn’t mean it’s any good. I can’t tell you how fucking excited I was when I saw Quantico for the first time. It wasn’t just racial diversity, but religious diversity and LGBT representation, and so many female characters–Indian, Lebanese, Black, Gay, Jewish, Cuban, Muslim–and that’s just in the main cast, never mind all the secondary characters who are in most episodes. Sadly, the show itself is a train wreck, and try as I might, I just can’t deal with that bullshit (sorry if you like it. I make an effort not to talk shit about things on tumblr so I’m not raining on anyone’s parade.)
The point is, I’m not saying that we should support things only because they have a diverse cast, but we need to at least give them a chance. Some networks are finally understanding and starting to give us what we want, but it isn’t going to keep up if we don’t WATCH them.
I find it so discouraging and disheartening to see these same blogs, demanding this representation, flat out IGNORING The Get Down. This show is…gorgeous. Revolutionary. Absolutely wonderful and so important.
I’m not even going to get into the obsession over Stranger Things, which came out at basically the same time, with it’s token black character. That’s a discussion for another place and time. But I would like each of you to consider *why* you haven’t watched it yet? It’s Baz Lurhman, for one thing, so you know it’s going to be visually stunning, with a delightful score and some fun, almost magical, grandiose, sweeping scenes that reach past the screen to grab you.
At times it’s difficult to watch, the fictional characters in the very realistic setting of 1970s Bronx. There’s drugs, violence, exploitation of women and minorities, homophobia, etc. But it is so uplifting and hopeful, full of moments that make you clap and cheer with joy. Plus we’ve got all kinds of positive representation, not only of a multitude of different POC, but gay, bi, and trans as well.
These characters are complex and tragic and wonderful. And the actors! Every single one of them just terrific, especially the newcomers, but don’t forget they’ve got talents like Giancarlo Esposito, Jimmy Smits, Yolonda Ross, Kevin Corrigan, Zabryn Guevara, and Daveed Diggs supporting them.
Coming up soon, we’ve got Luke Cage on Netflix, too. Netflix is giving us such an awesome range of shows and characters playing in them, but they’re the same as any other network. They pay attention to the numbers, and they’re savvy enough to pay attention to social media, too. If people aren’t watching these shows, they’re going to get cancelled, and eventually they’re going to stop making more of them.
So please, give it a shot. And if you enjoy it, start talking about it. Start showing it other people. It starts out heavy, give it an episode before you make up your mind. Two if you’re going to be fair about it (though I think by the end of the first, most should be won over).
Romano slammed on the horn. “Do you see this asshole! He
must be fucking drunk or something, the mother fucker!”
tried to bite back his grin. “What a fucker.”
shot a look at him. “You keep your fucking mouth shut. Don’t you fucking
smile at me like that. This—look at him!” Romano pointed.
“Did you see that?! He needs a fucking breathalyzer test,
let me fucking tell you!”
nodded. “Of course he does.”
fucking fuck.” Romano checked his watch; Spain knew he had never gotten
used to clocks in car dashboards. “We’re going to be late for your flight.
Shit. I hate when you fly out on a Monday.”
shrugged. “More time watching you swear, which is my favorite thing in the
time, it was Romano who couldn’t keep the smile off his face. “Fuck

his head. “Look at this guy. Would you look at—fuck.” Romano slammed

seemed very slow for a while. Spain’s stomach felt light, and there was a
strange noise that reminded him of the Margaretville blender Romano owned, that
they had made drinks in Saturday night. Spain blinked, heard the heartbeat in
Oh and I don't know if I can make a second request but uh... If you don't mind, can I ask you to draw the King from SCM? 🙈 I don't know what to ask for specifically... but maybe with his evil smirk? Ooh or maybe with him holding a Star of Bethlehem flower asking for forgiveness? Either one or you can do something else entirely! If you don't mind that is! I would be so happy ☺️ But if I'm being too greedy don't worry about it 😂🙈 Love you ♥️
“ Oh my god you could cut the sexual tension between those two with a knife. Which is strange considering what happened with them.” Mason says jokingly from the bleachers.
“ Oh shut up Mason.” I groan out, frustrated with his stupid remark.
We are watching the two of them in a stand off on the field. Hayden with her soccer ball and Liam with his lacrosse ball.
“ What do you mean?” Brett ask’s stupidly.
I tune the two of them out and rest my head lightly on Brett’s shoulder.
I look at Liam who looks mighty fine in his muscle tee.
He looks to the three of us on the field and gives us a wink which makes me perk up and blush.
Shaking my head I look down again and try to brush off my feelings. I hadn’t told anyone about this except for Derek and my sister who were both gone.
My name pops up in the conversation and I turn my head back to the two of them.
“ (Y/N)’s got a pretty good scar from trying to break Liam and the guy up, but she isn’t as upset about it.” Mason nods his head towards me.
Thinking back on that day in 6th grade, it was pretty much my fault I even have the scar. Liam shoved me into some lockers trying to get away and my stomach snagged on one of the locker corners.
He apologizes for it whenever he see’s the scar but i’m over it.
“ No way! Is it nasty, can I see it?” Brett ask’s like a small, excited child.
I lift up my shirt to show a small scar with some jagged edges in it from the stitches I had to get.
“ You’re a tough trooper, (Y/L/N).” Brett jokes with me.
I laugh at this and look down to see I have a text on my phone.
From: Braeden :)
Hey. Tell Stiles and Malia we’re making some progress on The Desert Wolf. I miss you and Derek and I will call you later tonight. Have fun at school ;).
This at least manages to put a genuine smile on my face and stop thinking about Liam for a moment.
I quickly text her back and shove my phone in my pocket.
“ Sorry boys, but I have got to go find Stiles. Tell Liam i’ll meet him at my car in 30 minutes.” I put all my stuff in my bag and hear them mumble out a chorus of yeahs.
Making my way down the bleachers, I find my car in the parking lot and get in; turning on the radio.
I pull out my phone and begin a message to Stiles.
To: Detective Stiles :), Scotty M, Malia Tate
Braeden and Derek said their making some progress on Desert Wolf and wanted me to pass the message along.
I hit send and lean my head back for a moment.
I turn up the radio, hearing If I Were A Boy by Beyonce on the radio and I turn it up, jamming along as if I were her.
I am interrupted sadly, by my phone being blown up with texts.
From: Detective Stiles :)
You talked to them? Where are they? When are they coming back?
Giggling I respond to him, letting him know I don’t know their whereabouts or when they are coming home.
From: Scotty M
We could really use Derek’s opinion and help on this. Any idea when he is getting back?
Derek’s really got a little posse back in Beacon Hills. I respond with the same thing I said to Stiles.
Malia’s text is more general concern on her mother. I tell her what I know and send her a smiley face, trying to lighten the mood.
I open my old texts to Derek and make a new one.
To: Derek Hale :)
Hey sourwolf, you’re little boyfriend’s back home want to know if you are ever coming home? It’s like they lost their dog back here in Beacon Hills.
There is a tap on the window that makes me jump.
There is a sweaty Liam standing and laughing at the side of the door.
Laughing I unlock the door and let him in.
“ You okay over there?” He laughs with me and throws his bag of lacrosse stuff in the back seat.
“ Yeah if my heart ever starts beating again. We going to your house, I still need to grab my jacket.” Rolling my eyes I pull out of the house.
“ Yup! My mom wants to see you.” He says sheepishly.
“ Of course she does, I love your mom.” Winking at him before turning my head back to the road.
“ Sometimes I swear she likes me more than you.” He laughs with me, our conversation being interrupted by my phone buzzing on the dashboard.
“ Hey will you check that?” I say, not wanting to be on my phone whilst driving.
He nods his head and grabs my phone.
“ It’s Derek. He says, “ He says “ Boo hoo, tell them to stop whining and i’ll be back when we feel like it.I’ll call you tonight.”
Giggling I grab the phone from Liam and lock the screen, setting it on the dashboard.
“ Why is Derek calling you?” Liam raises an eyebrow as we pull into his driveway.
“ To get his advice on everything happening and just to talk to him.” I say like it’s nothing, because it really is nothing.
Derek is like my brother, sure he’s cute and everything but I would never do that to my sister and I already like Liam.
“ I wonder what he’ll say. I’m worried about Hayden. I just don’t want her getting hurt, she’s only a human and they can’t protect themselves as well.”
This irritates me. I’m a human and I don’t have anyone worried or trying to protect me every second. I can handle myself just fine. After I found out about werewolves and everything Jackson stung me and I was paralyzed from the waist down. I was just fine and we ended up fixing him.
“ uh I’m just a human?” Stopping on the stairs we were walking up.
“ Yeah but you’re different. This is Hayden.”
“ Uhh gee thanks Liam. Good to know that you’re so worried about me being human, But no, not unless i’m Hayden.” I brush passed him grabbing my jacket from his room.
I turn to leave his room but he is standing in the doorway.
“ (Y/N/N) you know that’s not what I meant.” He leans his hands against the top of the doorway and leans forward.
Holy shit those arm muscles.
“ Honestly Liam, go call Hayden cause i’m done with this conversation.” I shove passed him, trying to swallow my feelings.
“ (Y/N) why are you making such a big deal out of this?” He throws his arms in the air and tries to run after me.
“ Just don’t worry about it Liam okay? Go worry about your perfect little girlfriend Hayden.” I slam the door behind me and run over to my car, pulling out of his driveway.
I pull into the nearest parking lot and slam my head onto the steering wheel.
“ UGHHH why am I so stupid?” Slamming my head onto the wheel with each word.
I see Derek calling me on the phone and I try to wipe my tears away, answering the phone.
( D= Derek, Y= (y/n) )
D- Hey (Y/N). Stiles and Scott still missing us?
Y- Hey. I’m not sure I haven’t talked to them.
D- You alright? I can practically hear your heart racing a million miles per minute.
Y- Just had a fight with Liam, so that was fun.
D- Why were you guys fighting?
Y- I just overreacted on something stupid.
D- What was it?
Y- Don’t worry about it Der.
D- Come on you wouldn’t have answered the phone if you didn’t want to tell me.
Y- You’re such a shit Derek Hale.
D- Thanks (Y/N).
Y- Yep. I got jealous over the new girl at our school that he likes and he essentially said he doesn’t worry about me.
D- Really, you still like the beta? (Y/N) he does worry about you or else he wouldn’t have called Braeden 13 times when you went to the movies with your friends and didn’t tell him.
Y- Did he really? Okay that doesn’t matter, he likes Hayden I just have to deal with it. Derek I’ve got to go. Tell my sister I say hi. Thanks for talking with me Der.
D- Wait (Y/N). Don’t han-
I hang up the phone and see I have a single text from Liam.
You know I worry and care about you. You’re one of my best friends and I love you tons (Y/N).
Oh Liam, if only you knew. If only you knew.
– Thanks for reading! I hope you all enjoyed! Requests and ships are open! Sorry this one took me so long to upload! btw IM SO WORRIED FOR LIAM AND HAYDEN ON TW. shit i was liek actually screaming, who else? haha anyways I love you all!–
OKAY CALUM WOULD NEVER EVER DM SOMEONE TELLING THEM TO KILL THEMSELVES. ALL OF THE BOYS ARE SUPPORTERS IN SUICIDE AWARENESS AND STANDING UP TO BULLYING. WHY THE FUCK WOULD HE TELL SOMEONE TO KILL THEMSELVES WHEN ITS THEIR OPINION ON WHETHER OR NOT HIS DICK IS SMALL OR NOT LIKE WHY ARE YOU SENDING HIM A DM AFTER THE FACT THAT HIS NUDES LEAKED? PEOPLE FAKE DMS ALL THE FUCKING TIME TO MAKE THINGS SEEM LIKE THEY HAPPENED AND TO CAUSE DRAMA. I’M SORRY BUT I REFUSE TO BELIEVE CALUM WOULD STOOP THAT LOW AND TELL SOMEONE TO DIE. HE’S PROUD TO PROMOTE TO WRITE LOVE ON HER ARMS AND HE DOES SO MUCH FOR HIS FANS WHO DO SELF HARM, ALL THE BOYS DO. SO STOP MAKING US LOOK BAD FOR YOUR OWN FANDOM. I UNDERSTAND THE TWITTER SIDE CAN BE PROBLEMATIC BUT DON’T YOU FUCKING DARE PUT THAT ON THE BOYS WHEN THEY HAVE NO SAY ON WHAT TRENDS AND WHAT DOESN’T.
Do you only reply to hate because sometimes i send you nice things and you dont reply and i feel sad :(
no! here’s the thing:
when i reply to a nice message, i reply to it privately.
and when i get a nice message over anonymous, i feel weird because if i reply to it it will show up on my dashboard and i feel like that will look like i’m bragging or something? i don’t know. does that make sense?maybe that’s really stupid. but you should message me on your account! i will probably reply!
and just so you know; to everyone that writes me nice things, no matter where, i pretty much see it ALL and appreciate every single one of them separately. they make me really happy. so thank you. love love and love
First of all, I hate the term “space boyfriend.” But we’ll get to that in a minute.
Second of all, FitzSimmons fandom, breathe.
I see a lot of people working themselves up about recent developments and spoilers, and I’d be lying if I said at least a part of me wasn’t right there with you. But I just really think we all need to take a step back and think about this rationally. And reason says that no matter what, FitzSimmons love each other to the ends of the universe and back. No matter what, they are best friends - and more than that - despite whatever obstacles come between them. (My gut says they are endgame romantically, but even that put aside, FitzSimmons are permanent fixtures in each other’s lives.)
Now if I think that, why does all the “space boyfriend” speculation rub me the wrong way, you ask? Because it reminds me of when Trip showed up. If you were in the fandom at the time, then you remember: The FitzSimmons tag was filled to the brim with Trip hate. And all for one reason and one reason only: most people thought he was going to drive a wedge between Fitz and Simmons, creating an unnecessary love triangle.
It’s hard to imagine a world in which my Tumblr dashboard didn’t absolutely love Trip. He’s a beautiful cinnamon roll, right? Too good for this world, too pure. But I remember it vividly. I remember because even though I tried not to give in to my worries, I harbored similar fears. (I actually made this text post holy moly I’m so ashamed.) It was hard to stay positive at the time, though. With everyone freaking out, it was hard not to associate Trip with negative connotations. Do I regret my initial misgivings? You bet. But since then, I’ve learned why those misgivings were wrong, and I’d like to think I’ve learned from my mistakes. And the biggest thing I’ve learned is that these characters are more than the romantic relationships they form. Jemma Simmons is more than her relationship with Fitz (and vice versa). Antoine Triplett is more than his relationship with Jemma. Sure, many of us know that, and we only had to deal with maybe like 2 episodes of flirtation and a jealous Fitz. Crisis averted, yeah? Except it’s happening again.
Do we know anything about Will Daniels besides the fact that he’s 1) somewhat attractive and 2) the only guest star in tonight’s episode? Not really. We don’t know if he’s a human, alien, Inhuman, ghost, or some combination of those. But if he is a person, and if he is on the planet with Jemma, and if he’s a generally friendly guy, would it really be so bad for her to find comfort with him? We know Jemma gives up hope, that she didn’t think she’d ever make it home. She loves Fitz, yes, but can you even imagine the despair she must have felt from that realization? And in the face of that desolation, in the face of knowing she’ll never seeing her best friend in the universe again, in the face of spending the rest of her life in hell, how could she not deserve a companion? How could she not deserve to find love in a place she never thought she would?
Do I hate the idea of a love triangle? Absolutely. But if being in this fandom long-term has taught me anything, it’s that AoS doesn’t go for the obvious plot twist. Trip didn’t actually create a love triangle. (He was actually one of the best! characters! ever!) Jemma didn’t actually go over to HYDRA. And I highly doubt that Jemma’s connection to Will Daniels will create the tension we all think it’s going to.
So I’d just like to say, once again: breathe, my friends. And remember: 1) Jemma loves Fitz no matter what, 2) FitzSimmons are most likely endgame in some capacity, 3) despite his feelings Fitz is going to help Jemma get back because he loves her that much, 4) Will Daniels is his own character before he’s a plot device, and 5) whatever happens tonight, at least we still have each other. If anyone would like to talk after the episode (or before!), my ask box is always open. <3
i love it when one direction does a thing and then everyone on my dashboard stops what theyre doing and freaks out and i see the same posts being simultaneously reblogged multiple times and all the incredibly funny text posts come out and everyone is 1d as fuck and THIS IS REALLY WHAT I LIVE FOR TBH
