You know what, Booth and Brennan will always be my #1 otp because they gave me so much as a couple. I mean, I’m not talking about sex or smut because that’s fanfiction material (like you go girl, want to see your fave ship bang on a piano? go and read that !!!! that’s what that website is for) but everything else. The ‘platonic’ aspect of their relationship has always been the best part of their dynamic to me, but they were still able to overcome that phase and be a family. This being said, that original dynamic has never been compromized, not to me at least, because when it comes to the important stuff, Booth and Brennan are still partners first, they are still the people they would give up their life for, they would fight for each other. While the majority of other ships kinda change once they get together. Booth and Brennan never completely changed, so much that people complain because they’d rather have them being romantic the 100% of the time. I don’t. Also, it’s the little things that matter to me, like it might sound stupid, but I find it extremely adorable and precious that Brennan knows Booth by knowing his injuries. Every time something happens, she’s able to compare factures and other stuff to Booth’s. And that’s so IC, that’s something I really want to see because it’s them. And it’s been this way since she first found out about his past in 1x15 and it never changed. She imagined him on that autopsy table in 11x01 by looking at the bones, just like it happened on 12x04 with Aldo and in other many occasions. Brennan saying like I know that because of your brain tumor. She knows his brain scans. YAAAS. Give me this stuff. Give me Booth and Brennan that can’t sleep without each other at night when one of them is struggling with something, give me them talking about taking someone’s life and carrying the weight of the world on their shoulders. Give me them hurting each other to save each other. They would never cheat on each other or hurt each other because they want to. They only do it because it’s the only way. Yaas. Screw sex, just give me this stuff.
I kinda lost all the motivation for this one, since I wasn’t very happy with it to start with, but thought I’d share it anyway since I bothered to do the lineart– I’m deep in Gotham season 3 hell right now and I’m losing my shit thanks to these two………………
Okay so I don’t really know if any of my followers watch person of interest, so I’m probably just screaming into the void, but honest to god it’s the best series I have ever watched. The storylines are incredible and keep you hooked right up until the last second. They’re so multilayered and keep bringing new surprises to the table. Also, the characters have so much depth to them and as you get further and further into the show you see so many different sides to them and you become so attached to each and every one of them, and for me, every loss of a character felt like a sucker punch to the gut. (Like who knew fusco would be one of my favourite characters?!?) Never has a show had me on a rollercoaster of emotions from excitement, nervousness, happiness, sadness, love, compassion, shock etc. And root and shaw. I don’t even know where to start with them. Never has a wlw ship left me feeling so happy and then so much pain all at once. Their journey from enemies to lovers will forever be the best thing in the world. Shaw was a sociopath who felt no emotion and thought she was incapable of love and yet root somehow managed to leave a mark on her through her ridiculous flirting and comments at the most inappropriate times!! Also they’ve got the most iconic quotes of any tv couple ever. I know I’m probably the last person to watch this show but if you haven’t you need to start it now!!! Ahhhh I loved it so much
y’know, what bugs me most about how they handled the james/kara breakup is that the writers wrote it in the same way they would some terrible mistake.
To put an example of,,,,, say, how the writers of Glee backpedalled HARD on Glee Club Teacher Will Shuester singing rap songs after the first season, and then acted as if it had been a terrible idea all along, after they had comitted to it 100% (personally, I did not mind those rap covers, but that’s not here nor there lol).
and…….I just….don’t understand how they got this idea???? if you watch s1, sure, you could argue there wasnt romantic chemistry between Kara and James,
but you could say that of any ship! chesmistry is completetly subjective! Benoist and Brooks are good actors and they put their best into selling that particular endgame flagship.y type of romantic chemistry (imo, they succeeded, but again…subjective!).
And if it was due to fan/media backlash, normally that shouldn’t be enough for authors to completetly backtrack on what was a MAJOR plotpoint (the endgame romantic interest of the friggin title superhero!!),,,
It….typing all this, honestly, leads me to think their hearts weren’t set to it in the first place. They didn’t mind changing it because they didn’t believe in this relationship in the first place, and were only doing it at first because they wanted their “
GOOD JOB On That DIVERSITY, Jonny!
Like they were waiting all s1 for a jail out card out of writting an interracial ship.
