tbh it makes me really uncomfortable when fans ship real life people with each other in a completely serious way, like I understand when it’s a joke because “lol they’d be so cute together they’re in love ha ha ha” can be fun, but when people are legitimately coming up with theories about how married people are totally having an affair and each little glance and touch they share completely proves that they’re in love with each other it’s like??? hmmmm???? no thanks save that for the fiction pls
i like that one scene from the ember island players where actor katara was like “i’ve always had eyes for you” or something like that to actor zuko and then katara and zuko awkwardly look at each other and shift away. i feel like a lot of people write it off as bryke trying to dissuade watchers from shipping zutara but like honestly??
the look they give each other is not one of disgust. they’re uncomfortable with the statement because guess what? oh shit, when they were in the crystal catacombs they saw each other in a completely new light (obviously not to the extent of being in a relationship but i’ll get to my point). so as a “delusional zutara shipper” i like to think they were more unsure of the prospect of where their relationship might be if the zuko betrayal never happened in the crossroads of destiny, rather than being disgusted at the statement
they were uncomfortable with the line because they probably realised it was lowkey true. that whole crystal catacomb scene when they were talking about their mothers and zuko’s scar and katara’s hate for the fire nation, that is a really significant conversation to have considering they barely even knew each other at that time? they were so quick to accept and trust each other (and if azula hadn’t manipulated zuko into changing his mind, imagine how immense that trust and respect would be at that same time)
so like yeah, they did always have eyes for each other. they always knew they trusted each other. they always felt as if it would be easy to work together. they saw themselves in each other, and were willing to put their past aside to work together. and it was ruined and yet even when they (katara especially) tried to hate the other, they couldn’t shake those thoughts of how quickly they would’ve dropped everything to give the other a chance. they had eyes for what could’ve been
for katara, i’d say she uncomfortably shifted away because she knows this and she’s thought about it a lot. for zuko, he did it because he also knows this and he regrets his decision to give their alliance a shot. because they had eyes for each other, they subconsciously knew they would make the perfect team even without directly knowing it
i don’t see how anyone is surprised that marlene killed yvonne so spoby could happen. it was pretty fucking obvious that she wasn’t going to stick around from the start. it’s rushed, it’s shitty writing, it’s problematic as hell, and yvonne and spoby both deserved a far better resolution.
But come on, this is the writing team that decided romance was having caleb and spencer fall in love for half a season only for caleb to cheat on her with hanna and then claim he’s loved hanna all along, who are still romanticizing a teacher/student relationship that, even looking past all it’s other transgressions, continues to be boring af, who think the best way to put emily and alison together, the slowburn ship to end all slowburn ships who would have had no trouble being brought together naturally, is to introduce two other girls for emily and then inject emily’s eggs into alison in a complete and utter violation of both girls bodies.
like, did you expect better from the writers? really? if you didn’t see this coming i don’t know what to tell you.
gigantic deluxe cruise: 34705 search results on everywhere, dominates the fanzine market, badass edits with lots of heart-wrenching quotes since they’re probably the main characters. author probably shipped them as well, tbh. usually the “opposite personality” pair, overused tropes, nicknames, etc.
modest viking longship: has been there since the beginning of time, always appears as a side ship in fics, especially those with all the main cruises in one universe. yet has surprisingly little main fics considering how the characters basically aren’t shipped with anyone else but each other.
the “aww” submarine: that non-mainstream pair whose fanart pops up on your dash once a while. everyone lowkey ships them in a ‘in another universe where my otp didn’t exist’ way. see: “I don’t get why don’t more people ship xxx!” actually, they do.
the sturdy fishing boat: usually clashes with one of the mainstream ships. people either ship them, think they’re good as they are now, or oppose them with a passion. with enough supporters it may upgrade to a bigger fishing vessel, garner quite a bit of attention and start discourse with the cruise oppressors. mostly stays in their waters and are chill if u don’t insult them
the driftwood: tinier than the piece of lumber that jack and rose couldn’t hold on to at the same time. you need wood? you make wood. EMPHASIS: usually consists of couples that would theoretically be good together since a) they are minor characters and b) they have had zero interaction
the lone canoe: most perplexing of all. these characters are well known, have decent interaction, yet are never shipped together. when it is suggested people frown upon you as they are deeply rooted within their prejudices, but convert someone and you will be much more satisfied with the content than poor driftwood.
So I’m just saying, there are a lot of supercorp fics out
there but tbh a lot of them I’m just like. Eh. About.
So here’s a list of my favorite supercorp authors and/or
their fics—10/10 would recommend, and sure I may have only mentioned one fic,
but if they’re on this list they’re quality all around and they’re good for all the fics (the ones I mention are
just personally my fave). This will be a link to their ao3 page btw not their
tumblr (and again–this is STRICTLY about supercorp fic, although if they do have other pairings lol i’ve read them they’re also good but then i’d need a longer list)
literally read every single up. 10/10 would die for. You don’t understand I die
every single time I read one of your fics holy shit please go read there’s ALL
the ships I more than lowkey scream every time I see an email saying there’s a
I don’t think I can do a better job than the description: “
“Lena has a crush on Kara.
Lena’s too afraid to tell Kara.
Obviously the only solution is to make
Kara jealous by dating Supergirl.”
It IS as great as it sounds
bc i am gay trash i couldn’t help but notice mila and sara in the background of the GPF banquet photos and i just
tfw u clutching at the gf during a horror movie but she’s too busy gleefully watching the bloodbath
sara pls she needs protection put down your phone
tldr; mila babicheva of the edgy undercut is a delicate cinnamon roll who should be protected at all costs. sara crispino of the flowing tresses is an actual knight who knows no fear. in other news, sara crispino is probably the big spoon.
Can you just imagine if anyone ever tried to hurt Pidge though
Lance and Keith would immediately have that little bugger pinned against the wall in no time. Coran would have to drag Allura away. Even Hunk would lose it - frankly speaking, you’d regret it, having four paladins and the Princess attack you all at once.
And then you’d see Shiro’s blank, emotionless face and his freaking glowing hand and you’d know you were completely, utterlyscrewed.
Just finished AVPM and i have compiled a list of things i loved about it.
“I love you all. Except you Draco, I can’t fucking stand you”
The kick line in To Dance Again
Draco rolling around everywhere his main form of transportation apparently
Ron never being seen without some form of junk food
Tbh just Draco in general, Lauren did an amazing job
“Okay there’s only one thing we can do: we gotta fight” “UGH I’m tired. Can’t we just be death eaters?”
Hufflepuffs are particularly good finders!
Dumbledore’s space suit when he and rumbleroar go to pigfarts
Draco’s crush on Hermione (tbh i’ve shipped dramione since i finished deathly hallows. this musical series is just a dream come true for us dramione shippers)
The Dragon Song; I sing it to my own dragon every once in a while lol
“Try a little slice of remorse pie”
Voldemort getting all sad, nostalgic and remorseful about Quirrell when Harry asks him if there’s even one person he misses, but then…
“NO! Jokes on you Potter! I don’t care about anybody!” “I know, that’s what makes you such a piece of shit”
Ron putting Voldemorts super long wand (compensating for anything, Voldy? lol) in his headband after voldy’s dead
Dumbledore’s will lmao
Voldemort coming back to see Quirrell because there’s still a part of him in Quirrell’s heart
“so you came back?” “no, quirrell, I came home”
“you think killing people might make them like you, but it doesn’t. it just makes them dead”
this list got a lot longer than i thought it would. needless to say, AVPM is timeless. i loved it rewatching it now just as much as i did the first time i watched it. The jokes are still good, the music is still catchy and amazing (tbh i already knew that; i listen to the soundtrack at least once a month). 10/10
