i try not to be too shippy but

That radio scene is a lot

That radio scene would be significant anyway but what really makes my hair stand on end is that not only is it decidedly shippy, but it is the last thing we see this season. The last scene/shot of the season works as a kind of launchpad for the season to come – setting up both the big bad and giving a general indication of our heroes’ character/relationship trajectiory.

The last scene of season we’re left with is Clarke, missing Bellamy, calling out into the void and hoping he’ll come back. It’s Clarke trying to reconnect with a Bellamy she no longer knows, tethering herself to his memory to keep herself sane. And Bellamy is the great unknown.  He’s unknown to her after 6 years, and perhaps to us too. We don’t know where he’s been or what he’s done, but she’s still there, irrevocably changed herself, and waiting in hope that he will return.

If that’s not shippy then I don’t know what is.

I probably need to calm down and manage my expectations but apparently learning from mistakes is a thing only other people do so let’s have a look at the final shots of the past seasons and see how they relate to the following season.

Season 3

The last scene of the season is Octavia killing Pike, and walking out the door. As she leaves, the camera pans to Bellamy and Clarke.  Clarke is angsting about Praimfaya but is watching Bellamy, her face filled with concern. But Bellamy is not looking at her, his eyes are following Octavia’s back as she marches out the room.

That for me, really sums up Bellarke in s4.  Clarke, watching Bellamy from a distance as she worries about his emotional state and tries to save the world.  And Bellamy, not really looking at Clarke at all, instead focussed entirely on Octavia and her breakdown, with Praimfaya a secondary concern.

I wish I had something to say about how Octavia killing Pike related to season 4 but I don’t and you can take from that what you will.

Season 2

The last scene in s2 is Jaha meeting ALIE, which is obviously a platform for s3. From Jaha’s POV, she’s scary but enticing, but the previous scene – in which Murphy watches one of Becca’s partners kill himself – shows us that she really is to be feared. The scene ends with Jaha staring wonderingly at the nuclear tech ALIE has pilfered as a show of power, while in the bunker we know Murphy is sitting witnessing the truth about her. And as promised, Jaha is the sincere purveyor of ALIE’s lies in s3, while Murphy the cynic is the unexpected sage.

It’s probably noteworthy that Bellamy and Clarke, the show’s backbone, were off-stage-right for these final scenes, considering what came to pass in s3a.  Both of them deferred to others in those early eps, and it took some time for their agency to return. ALIE was the big bad, and Jaha and Murphy the protagonists and antagonists respectively of that story before the others weaved into it.

And because I can’t resist talking about Bellarke and the s2/3 bridge: For those who need reminding the final Bellarke scene of s2 is basically a Raign-fuelled cryfest in which Clarke bids farewell to her friends, culminating in an emotional goodbye with Bellamy. After he pleads with her to stay, he pulls himself together, pushes down his feelings and lets her go, before turning his back on her to walk back inside. The scene ends with Clarke walking away with her back to him and Arkadia.

And s3 Bellarke launched like this: Clarke, back turned in her self-imposed isolation, trying to find peace away from her people and refusing to draw on Bellamy’s strength or her friends’ support, while Bellamy bottled up his angst and tried to pretend that everything was fine, absolutely fine.

Season 1

The last scene of season 1 was Clarke waking up in Mount Weather, uneasy at the cleanliness and the tech, before looking out of her window realising she’s trapped.  Then, she sees Monty across the hall, also trapped. And so it continued in season 2 – Mount Weather is the big bad, Clarke trapped, but separate from her friends, who are also trapped. Clarke trying to save herself and to rescue her friends. The sound editing on that scene is awesome, all we hear at the end is Clarke’s panicked breathing, letting us into her headspace and feel her fear. Season 2 was such a great Clarke POV season.

SEASON 4

Season 4 ends with Clarke putting down the radio to welcome the newcomers and wake up Madi, before having that hope replaced with fear.  The final shot is of Clarke sending Madi to safety and half crouching, ready to fight but unsure if she needs to. So if I were to wildly speculate, then the sequence of that s4 scene – hoping for Bellamy’s return, followed by fear for her and Madi’s safety, sets up the Eligius Corporation is the big bad obviously, but it also sets up the framework for this new Clarke and her new priorities. S5 Clarke has taken on board the lessons of her time before Praimfaya and she is now very much a head AND a heart person. What’s more, that heart is populated by someone new, someone who Clarke wants to protect. But it also establishes that Bellamy still lives in her heart.  Her friends still live in her heart. But Bellamy is…where?  With whom? Doing what?  Was she right to hope? Was it a fatal error to invest her faith and hope in someone she hasn’t seen for 6 years?  Could that come at the cost of the survival of the person right in front of her?

And just… radios are about connecting. It’s about Bellamy and Clarke, the backbone of the show, reconnecting, literally and figuratively, when the frame of reference for their relationship has changed.

Someone throw a bucket of water over me.

Aside: St Eligius btw, is the patron saint of metalworkers. And horses. Hmmm.

Javid moments we don’t talk about enough

• When Jack is climbing the railing to change the headline board during the World Will Know, Davey goes up there with him. When Jack and the guy with the chalk start yelling, Davey puts a hand on Jack’s shoulder and stands in between them. You can see him try to reason with the man but he takes a step forward and Davey flinches in a “I can’t believe you just did that” way and it’s hilarious

• Speaking of Davey being protective, when Wisel’s guys grab Jack in the beginning of the fight scene, Davey immediately launches himself at them and pulls the guy off Jack. This gets me cuz Davey likely has little to no experience in fighting, yet he doesn’t even hesitate when protecting Jack

• During the scene where they’re hiding in the theater Jack just casually puts a hand on Davey’s lower back while he’s talking to Medda and wow

• “I’m a blowhard. Davey’s the brains of the operation”

• why does no one talk about how Davey invites Jack over for dinner. Like.. so sweet

• Davey saves Jack’s ass: the sequel. During the rally after Jack tells them they should stop striking, Spot lunges for Jack but Davey blocks him. This also gets me because, as we know, Davey was freaking crushed by what Jack said about the strike. Yet he stills refusing to let anyone hurt him.

• Not super shippy but the way Ben Fank dilevers the “Is that a real place? That Santa Fe?” Line is just,, so important to me. He does the seductive eyes when he’s saying “Santa Fe” and it’s Too Much

• THE GOD DAMN PUPPY DOG EYES DAVEY GIVES JACK WHEN HE’S TRYING TO CONVINCE HIM TO STAY IN NEW YORK. COMPLETE WITH THE LITTLE HEAD TILT AND JACK LOOKS SO CONFLICTED ITS THE CUTEST

He went out with the intention to get rid of the Hatter once and for all… but that Cheshire cat is always watching, ready to pounce… and as per usual, Tyler has to take care of the aftermath of Ethan’s thoughtless behavior..

So You Want to Watch Buffy the Vampire Slayer

So you may have heard that Buffy the Vampire Slayer just turned 20 years old and now everyone’s talking about it and you’re thinking of watching it, but there are just so many episodes and it might expire on Netflix at the end of the month, so how are you going to manage that? 

WELL GUESS WHAT, I have made you a bunch of curated episode lists depending on what you want to watch for.

JJ Bakery is officially open! Take a seat, enjoy some coffee and pastries, and ask owner Seokjin and assistant (soon to be future owner) Jungkook anything you’d like~

(As there are so many cute and fun bts ask blogs on here, I’ve decided to run one myself! I may create a backstory for them, but I plan to keep it simple and casual (it is for fun, after all), if there is to be one. Also, asks don’t have to be limited to jinkook only; y’all can ask about the other members too (please do!!) and I’ll integrate them into the au. Lastly, “shippy” asks are fine as I basically ship everything, but I’m going to try to keep this blog mild. Thanks for reading and enjoy!!!)

This page is so crazy I mean Armin just killed a human being and is internally and externally suffering to the point where he is literally vomiting and sweating and crying and as soon as he asked Mikasa that question right away he regretted that shit because how dare he make her feel sad so he started apologizing to her immediately to try and make HER feel better while I remind you he is the one who is physically and mentally in anguish.

So just try and tell me Mikasa & Armin don’t have the purest relationship in this series I fucking dare you.

Mara sneaks up behind Luke, her lightsaber raised to deliver the killing blow. Luke turns around, looks at Mara, looks at her lightsaber and then asks where she got it from because he thought lightsabers only came in red, blue and green. This leads to an hour long conversation about kyber crystals, the rarity of certain colours and the artificially created red crystals as they eat a meal of very questionable street food.

“Meet up to kill ya next Centaxday?”

“Aw, shoot. No, sorry, I can’t. We’re pushing further into Hutt Space and I need to be on-hand in case they get any funny ideas about revenge.”

Luke looks genuinely disappointed by this, almost as much as Mara. She brightens a moment later.
“Oh well, I could come along, I guess. I hate Hutts.”

“You seem to hate a lot of things.”

“Duh. But Hutts particularly. Want another lightsaber to help bust up a cartel? Maybe stick some heads on pikes, added incentive for them to rat out all their slavers?”

Luke gags a little. “Okay and that is not what I needed to hear while I was eating.”

Mara snorts. “I think that’s just the food getting to you. I swear I saw a claw in that mess. Or possibly a tooth.”

Both grimace and very slowly put down their food.
There is a sudden drop in the temperature around them, and a feeling of heavy darkness that seems to weigh down their shoulders despite the lights of the city.
Luke glances up and around, then sighs.

“I have to go home now,” Mara jokes in a deliberately childish voice.

“Me too,” Luke laughs, “My father’s here.”

“I know, farmboy. Why else do you think I have to go?” Mara punches him (not all that gently) in the stomach. 
Considering the questionable quality of the food they were eating, Luke does not appreciate this.

He’s not altogether surprised when she shows up in Hutt Space next Centaxday and tries to run him over with a speeder.
Well, he’s a little surprised by the modus operandi. She wasn’t even trying this time.

AU,,, because Damian knows how to keep his image, being in the public eye of Bruce Wayne's son, he involuntarily dusts Jon's clothes off or takes leaves or dirt out of his hair after one of their many shenanigans

haha is this how they fall in love? Is this their origin story? Damian does this out of habit for image, thinking nothing of it, but JON THINKS IT’S THE MOST INTIMATE THING IN THE WORLD. He blushes every time, for YEARS. 

And because Damian is surrounded by people who are immaculately dressed always, it appears Damian only does this for Jon, so is it a sign? Is he reading into this wrong? But then even if he is, he finds himself crushing on Damian for 400 other reasons anyway? 

Jon totally doesn’t make a move until he himself is 16 or so, when Damian does it but catches the blush and asks him if he’s feeling ill or something. And then Jon decides it’s now or never so gently takes Damian’s hand, but leans in and kisses him, and then is so FLUSTERED JUST RUNS and can’t bring himself to look or speak or ANYTHING to Damian for like. Two weeks.

And then Damian breaks into his house (with Lois and Clark’s permission) and demands and explanation and then also surprise-kisses, and might try to run away but Jon is TOO FAST and has wanted nothing more than to just hold Damian in his arms for YEARS and now he GETS TO and it turns into a first date of couch-cuddling, ice cream and bad movies, the end.

THE last thing I want to see in this manga/anime is Chuuya dying because of corruption and Dazai commiting suicide afterwards. I already have read some posts regarding this matter. Anyway Im not sure if BSD is into tragedies but let me just drop this so I can let it all out of my mind. (warning:maybe too shippy but I didnt meant to,believe me) LOL

Dazai clearly states out that Chuuya will die if he uses corruption so Chu needs him around to nullify the ability. We also know how Dazai is so fond of trying to kill himself so at least its safe to assume that he knows THAT CHUUYA NEEDS HIM SO HE CANT DIE. He’s a man who longs for death and yet he always failed..or does something is trying to stop him? *hint* He knows he cannot die …YET. So if Chuuya died…

After four years of not seeing each other,Dazai told him he wants to die with a beauty (COUGHCHUUYAISABEAUTY) and Chuuya said he will allow him to die one day. Not to mention Chuuya always say he will kill Dazai but never did it even if he can,that could be translated as “one day I’ll be the reason of your death” *hint*

We are all fangirling about camellias on soukoku fanarts we also know its meaning:love,passion,admiration,longing etc…ignoring the fact that it also means death/funeral..what if Chuuya dies and Dazai commits suicide afterwards? is this why there’s shin soukoku so that they can succeed them?

“We need a new soukoku (shin soukoku) ” - Dazai

Double Black-Double Suicide??

ichi and kara being (almost) good brothers! and hugs are here too! of course the main reason why i drew this was to thank you for everything!!! you’re always soooooooo nice to me!

oh btw it’s nothing shippy so please don’t tag it as one 

anonymous asked:

and then there's jack who feels bad cause dean's saying he killed cas and he's trying to make up for it by getting to cas... like i literally yelled so loud when i saw cas!! it's been too long. im dying to know how this goes. will jack tell dean and sam that he feels cas' presence? how will dean react? will he be hesitant or feel some hope creeping back again and help jack get him out. how long will their hug be? will dean ever let cas out his sight now fghfjg

oh god… okay, the Jack thing, not surprised that Dean can’t even look at him because he got Cas killed, but am I surprised that this prompted Jack to use his powers and find Cas? A little. Because I thought it would be too shippy, but of course they did it lol. I don’t know if Jack will tell them, so far we’ve only seen Castiel react to Jack’s voice, we don’t still know what Jack has felt… telling them would ruin the surprise, but I don’t see why he shouldn’t. 
I’m not sure about Dean’s reaction. He will probably break our hearts anyway (probably won’t believe Jack, because the angels told him that Cas was all the way dead and impossible to resuscitate). 
Jensen did say that the reunion will be “understated”, so I’m not trying to build too many castles on it, but I’m sure the hug is gonna kill us all.

I mean, I haven’t met ALL the mathematicians or astrophysicists in the world so we can’t just throw around definitive statements like that. But I suppose he’s in the running. Top ten at least. Top five. MAYBE number one.)
