i think i'm overanalyzing

tfw it’s almost midnight 6 months after the final problem aired and for some reason that’s the moment you notice eurus imagined herself wearing crocs and then you remember that a long time ago you blogged a joke about crocs and after a bunch of digging you find it only to discover the punchline’s about an island prison for supervillains and a painfully elaborate plan to kill your arch-enemy

I really love skam but I have like one problem with the show and that is the fact that chris is such a bad written character, like we got so many interesting characters and the only overweight person is reduced to the "funny fat girl" stereotype and I think it's sad. Like fat people are almost always reduced to comic relief or stupid people in media and I would've thought that skam could do a better job portraying her. idk maybe I'm overanalyzing but i think she deserves better.

Hmm. personally I feel like she’s written totally fine? There was one moment where Noora was talking about the pressure on having a socially acceptable body today and Chris said, with yoghurt on her cheek or something, “I don’t really feel that pressure” and I found that moment unnecessarily and a tiny bit mocking maybe, but I don’t know.
I don’t feel like people are making fun of her because of her size or anything, to me she appears to be a comic relief character that happens to be overweight. She’s funny because she gives zero fucks, is openly sexual, loves booze and partying and says funny stuff. She’s never been fat shamed or anything?

Personally I think Ina would have played Chris and Chris would have had that personality no matter her size, but that’s just my opinion. Like you say ‘she deserved better’ so you mean Chris te character deserved better? Because I feel she wouldn’t be Chris if she was anything other than what she is. And if she was different I highly doubt they would have had Ina play her, and thus she wouldn’t have existed at all

Skam has several body shapes like the closest thing to Hollywood body standard would be Noora and William, the rest of them are average teenagers and I really love that about skam. Like I was so happy to see Vilde and Eva and Sana because their body shapes are so common and average but hardly ever shown on television, and I was very happy to see Chris because there are very few teenagers in Norway who are overweight and that causes those who are to receive a lot of bad attention. I get where you’re coming from and if anyone else wanna weigh in it’s an interesting topic.

okay so i already made this post about my jaxcon experience, but i wanted to make a separate post just about jensen because there is something about him that i never noticed watching him on film but in real life it was cuckoo bananas all right here we go~

when jensen came out on stage for the concert saturday night, he was not introduced, the song had already started, he didn’t say anything, he just busted through the curtain and grabbed the mic and immediately started singing. when there was a musical break, he left the stage (and took the mic with him, the only indication that he was coming back) and only returned when it was time to sing again, and when the song was over he disappeared and didn’t come back for the rest of the concert. he moved with such confidence and self-assuredness as if he knew that he owned the asses of every single person in the room. it was somewhat shocking because a) that’s definitely not how he used to act about singing in front of a crowd and b) all of the other actors at the convention seemed so approachable and chill and therefore jensen looking like a goddamn rockstar was a very stark contrast.

i didn’t really think much of it, though, until i was waiting in line for my cockles photo op. i was already in the room when jensen came in through the side door, and he just sort of……glided? or maybe it’s more of a stride? he walks with such purpose, like if i passed him on the street i would feel the need to get out of his way. again, let me reiterate: he came into the room like he owned the place. 

now i’ve already explained that meeting misha just felt like meeting a dad, like i didn’t feel like i was meeting a famous person at all. but then i was face-to-face with jensen and i was like “oh shit this is a famous person.” he carries himself in such a way that you know that he knows exactly who he is and what he’s doing.

so this might sound like i think jensen is an arrogant prick, but that’s not what i’m saying at all. it IS intimidating to see such physical confidence, but it’s also enticing and intriguing. i know i’m being extremely cheesy, but i felt myself drawn to his poise and grace. 

to be clear, i’m only talking in the physical sense now. i don’t think there’s a clumsy bone in jensen’s body. i don’t think he’s even aware that he has an unidentifiable physical quality that exclaims “i am an important person” when he walks into a room. 

all of that being said, the second jensen opens his mouth all of the nonsense i’ve just explained disappears and he turns into an embarrassing nerd dad. 

see this guy??? i’m going to talk about him for a bit.

there’s something that struck me about hans. he said he had 12 older brothers, most of them who acted like he was completely invisible. in other words, hans wasn’t recognized by his brothers aka the people he probably looked up to most. if anything, he was nothing to them.

when hans did what he did, i don’t think he wanted the throne for power; he wanted the throne for recognition. he wanted his brothers to notice him. he wanted to prove his competence that he was one of them and not some little brat without a name.

did hans love anna? no. did hans feel connected to anna? yes, because as their song went, they shared a lot of feelings together. they understood each other. the only difference is in their siblings. elsa cared about anna. hans’s brothers probably didn’t at all. likewise, anna felt an attachment to elsa, whereas hans probably didn’t feel any attachment, period.

elsa froze anna’s heart physically. hans’s brothers froze his heart emotionally.

so moral of this headcanon: don’t shut your siblings out, especially if you’re the oldest.

I’ve been thinking about some chess pieces.

Let’s talk about the characters, shall we?

  • Ethan and Aiden - pawns. Pawns tend to be the pieces that are dispensable, the ones you sacrifice to take your opponent’s pieces. But look at how close these two are to the back. They’re hovering around Derek - maybe because they want to protect the king, or maybe because they don’t want to get involved with the actual fighting. They’re in a very low-risk situation right now, when they should (by natural chess strategy) be front and center, getting the game going. It reminds me of when Derek asks them, “Are you willing to die for him?” Going by how far back their pieces are hanging, I’d say probably not.
  • Peter - knight. Knights are sneaky. They’re the only pieces that don’t have to move in straight lines, and that makes them the ones you have to watch out for. It’s a lot harder to notice when a knight is going to be a threat. Hmm, sound familiar?
  • Deaton - rook. I tend to find rooks to be the most helpful pieces after the queen, and I think that fits well with Deaton. He’s kind of chilling out off to the side, away from most of the action, but still providing backup and stuff. 
  • Isaac - pawn. I’m not as interested in Isaac’s piece as I am in the fact that he’s off the board, and our attention was specifically drawn to that because Chris picks up his piece in that scene and puts it back down again. It could just be symbolizing how he’s in the hospital and currently out of action, or it could be some more serious foreshadowing.
  • Chris Argent - knight. I don’t have much to say about him other than to watch out for the knights, because they’re sneaky.
  • Kate - bishop. Not much that I can come up with here, either. Her placement makes it seem like she’s very involved with the fighting - the most people are clumped over there. But then again, she’s dead, so I’m not sure how significant her piece is.
  • Jackson - rook. I like the idea of him being a rook - he’s more powerful than the werewolves who are pawns. Probably because a kanima is stronger than a werewolf and all that jazz. He’s out of the way, not doing much, which I think is just because of him being in London. Moving on, then.
  • Derek - king. Everything I would’ve said about this has already been said by people much more eloquent than I. So I’ll leave it at that. King Derek. Has a nice ring to it, don’t you think?
  • Allison - knight. Ahh, this is where things get interesting. Allison’s a knight, which we know is a sneaky piece. But look at how she’s a white piece on the black pieces’ side. She’s the only piece (other than the unnamed bishop on the left) that’s crossed over the center line. I don’t know if anyone has a screenshot from 3A when we first see the chessboard, but I know that Allison was on the other side, with Chris and Kate and Jackson. She hadn’t crossed over yet. Now she has. What’s changed? Maybe it’s symbolizing her moving away from her family, gravitating towards her friends, or her not knowing what side she’s really fighting for. You know what it reminds me of? A spy crossing over enemy lines.
  • Scott - pawn. Ah yes, there’s a reason I saved Scott for last. Why is he a pawn? Pawns are weakest, the most dispensable, and no one really values them at all. This entire season we’ve been told about Scott being the “true alpha.” The True Alpha is something amazing, someone so rare and extraordinary, there’s such a big deal about it. It makes sense, then, that Scott’s piece would be one that’s equally as powerful - the queen. At first I thought maybe he was just a pawn because all werewolves are pawns, but that’s not true anymore - look at Derek. The thing about Scott is that even though he’s a pawn, he’s very far up the board. He’s as far as he can go while staying on his side, and everyone seems to be clumped together around him. He’s in the center of the board right now - everything is revolving around him, and he’s in the midst of all the fighting, despite being so much weaker than the other pieces. That’s why he’s a pawn - he’s fighting to save everyone around him. Sounds very Scott McCall-y, doesn’t it? Save, don’t kill. (You know what usually happens to the pawns that go super far up early in the game? They get eaten first, or they get sacrificed to get one of the opponent’s pieces.)

To be honest, I think I might be reading into this board too much, especially since Sheriff Stilinski tells Derek that he’s one move away from checkmate, when in reality nothing on the board could move to make that happen. Also, my chess is a little rusty, so correct me if there were any mistakes in here. What do you all think?

Does anyone else think it’s possible that Bellamy is part of the “done fighting” group. After believing he’s been fighting a war all this time, having no peace, and being depressed most of 3B, I could honestly see him just wanting to be done. 

idk. Grrrr… he’s so hard to read because he is honestly the key and is such a wild card. The emotional shift of this series sometimes relies on him. Would he just be done and give up, but then switch to finding hope halfway through the season?

But then again, I feel like Bellamy wants to support and help Clarke so much, and the boy can’t help trying to do the right thing when he can. 

Idk. Idk. I just thought about this recently after rereading some of Jason’s quotes from the Comic Con interviews. When Jason said that some people just want to be done “fighting,” Bellamy popped into my head because I kept saying that in all my reviews/analysis about Bellamy in 3B. hmmmmm… . 

What do you guys think?
