Soooo… I haven’t read the new chapter yet but I heard that those two were hanging out again so I took that old sketch, cleaned it up and put on some colors ( I literally draw everything on really big canvases and have about 5-7 things on each of them )
As you all know, I am an endless well of knowledge and advice. Well it’s time to take some of my own advice and come clean about something very important.
Legendaries don’t actually drop. It is a lie created by the Warcraft community bourgeois, like myself, in partnership with the Illuminati (AKA Blizzard Entertainment). Every player who claims to have a legendary is in on it and is lying to you in order to increase WoW subs. We are all on Blizzard’s payroll.
Edit: I guess some of you should be made aware that I was talking to my followers only and was seeing if anyone wanted to join me on the PC version. I’m well aware of how many people play it, it was just a way to hang with my followers. XD
Overall, what is your honest opinion of this episode?
I honestly think it was a really well rounded episode. For me, 2b as a whole has completely blown 2a out of the water. It feels more cohesive and planned out and more even-keeled. There was a lot of upheaval at the beginning of the season with the change of showrunners. The last 2 episodes of 2a were the strongest by far and each consecutive episode seems to be building upon that. Things are more settled in general. Pacing, character screen time, plot threads.
This episode continued on that trend. The acting, character building, sets, pacing, were all really strong. For me personally, what I can say is that I was completely absorbed. The story was compelling and moved quickly. Pretty much everyone got their moment and they were all pretty strong. I’m being extremely general here and I’m sorry, but I really did love this episode.
I know a lot of people were upset about the body swapping thing, but for me, I think it was great tool to shove Magnus further into the foreground of the show. It wasn’t pretty, it was downright hard to watch sometimes, but I really think it’s going to pay off in the long run. Alan was amazing, as was Harry and even Matt’s scenes blew me away. (That scene where Alec confronts “Valentine” !!! I am going to be praising that scene forever.)
I, of course, always want to see more Malec, and I know we were hoping for more of a resolution between them, but I really feel like that moment was intentional. Alec is new to relationships, Magnus just went through some pretty serious trauma, Alec gave him space, Magnus opened up a little. Their love is still so new and fragile and this is a BIG thing to have to deal with. While short, (and I agree too much screen time was given to other moments) I think it was intentional and is only going to allow more of Magnus’ past to be brought up and be shared with Alec. I’m hoping this will lead to Alec and Magnus becoming stronger together as well as stronger individually.
All of what we saw in this episode, and the one before it, feel like a carefully crafted setup for what’s to come. They are laying out pieces of a larger puzzle. Todd, Darren and Matt Hastings were all saying this during 2a, but it really honestly feels like that’s what they are actually doing here. The torture, Alec’s inability to recognize Magnus, the lack of conclusion are all pieces to a larger puzzle we haven’t seen all of yet. And the quality of 2b makes me believe they will deliver. Ultimately, this episode just make me excited for what’s to come, for everyone.
I was at the grocery store today and heard someone calling my name. Across the store I could see a woman smiling and waving but I wasn’t wearing my glasses so I couldn’t tell
Who it was.. they said their name and I couldn’t hear either and finally she just waved me over. It was my neighbor and Craig’s mom who was handing out samples of wine and so I got some wine and explained that I can’t see that well far away and when my eyes are overworked.
My lovely bae just sent me my passport from CT from when I visited her and forgot it, and I find myself reminiscing again. I really need to stop. I haven’t looked at this stuff in forever.
Anyway, you guys probably don’t remember when I did that MCL Meme by @ladylemoon (thank you for making such a fun meme!) for Deviant Art back in June of 2012. Well, I just found the one I started, to ‘do it again’, in December of 2012. I don’t think I ever posted it, but seeing as I’ll probably never finish it anyway, I guess I’ll share this old thing. beh.
