Hello bellarke fam babies! I thought it was a good week to bring out my little rainbow unicorn. Sorry about all that fuss from the other side. I’ve gone back to ignoring, deleting and blocking. Leaves a lot more room for things like extra extra Bellarke love, writing fan fiction and getting ready for nanowrimo. Only a few more days!
It’s the rewatch tonight and I am up to 2.10 Survival of the Fittest. We just keep marching on into the new season… I actually just did the math, and it pretty much looks to me that if we keep to one episode a week, we will NOT complete all of our rewatch of all episodes before the new season in january or february.
WHO LEFT ME IN CHARGE OF NUMBERS??? Why would you do that? Well, I mean, we don’t have a premiere date, but we definitely have to be done before March or April or whatever schedule we’re on. I might have thought it wouldn’t come back until later, but it’s coming back in winter right? I don’t know you guys. What do you think? I’m thinking season 3 needs to be watched twice a week. Maybe even the last few episodes of season 2. It depends on when season 4 premiers.
idk part of me wants to be more forgiving abt the first 2 seasons not being The Best since they were being jerked around by nickelodeon for the entire run of the show (esp for the first two seasons, since they made both of them assuming they wouldnt be able to make any more) and theres still a lot of great stuff in them?
plus they actively tried to fix their mistakes in these seasons in 3+4 (more focus on female characters and their relationships to each other, more of a multi season interlocking plot)
atla had the advantage of having the entire thing basically written out start to finish when it was greenlit
and the fact that both shows don’t have exactly the same format is probably a good thing
I’m rewatching tab and I just noticed THEY PUT THE BLOOD PUMPING THROUGH OUR VEINS JUST THE TWO OF US AGAINST THE REST OF THE WORLD RIGHT BEFORE JOHN GRABBING SHERLOCKS COAT ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THE GATE FROM TRF LIKE THATS NOT EVEN IN ORDER THEY DID THAT INTENTIONALLY! I’m pretty sure everyone got that already but I happen to always miss everything so I only just got that now…
I thought you came asking for my forgiveness, but you like it better this way don’t you? Me owing you. And all that pretty fairy tale about me being part of the family. That only works if you’re in control. Klaus Mikaelson, smiling down like a benevolent king. Showing mercy to all his subjects. But you still have to be the king! Don’t you? The thing about kings, though - eventually they all fall. Even you, Klaus.
What I mean: Ben Affleck claimed in an interview to have FOMO (fear of missing out) yet in the same interview displayed complete obliviousness to the fact that people on the internet call him ‘daddy’, ‘dad’ etc and even expressed disappointment that Anna Kendrick was getting called mom and he wasnt getting called dad. buddy if that isn’t missing out then I dont know what is how have you never looked at the replies under your tweets.
Has anyone on here seen the movie Drive (2011)? The one with Ryan Gosling?
A few years ago I read a Sterek fic based on it, and for whatever reason, reading the prompts list for coldflashweek made me think of how there needs to be a Drive coldflash AU.
The premise is basically this guy who works as a stunt driver sometimes, but mostly a criminal getaway driver. He’s very quiet and reserved, likes to observe, friends with a mechanic or three (also works as one, I think?), knows everything there is to know about cars. He’s methodical and precise in his jobs, times things to the second.
Sound like anyone we know?
So yeah, that would be Len.
He lives (moves?) next door to a single mom and her young kid. Her husband is in prison. At the grocery store, her car breaks down, and against his better judgement, getaway driver ends up helping her out with the engine stuff, gets her to his mechanic.
So I’m thinking that woman would be changed into Barry, with his child who could be pretty much anyone, but I’d say a girl since Barry is a guy. Let’s say the mom is out of the picture but Barry’s married to…. Eobard (it fits, okay? But this could be anyone else though, honestly).
Eobard gets out of prison, comes home, finds out Len’s been doing all this stuff for Barry. He isn’t dangerous jealous, but he’s not dumb. He knows something is up but welcomes Len. He’s also a criminal, and knows Len’s not just some average neighbour.
But Len gets embroiled on this job that’s far too big, stealing money that I think belongs to the mafia? He doesn’t even want the job, takes it thanks largely to Eobard bullying him into it, mostly because people are after him and might come after Barry and their kid next. But the whole things’s a setup, I think from some of Len’s own contacts? The whole thing gets pear-shaped and ugly with lots of violence and more than a few people dying.
It’s all intense and artful and the acting is amazing. If it were a fic, I’d give it a happier ending than the movie had, but yeah, someone should write the thing.
