i'm in love with this show and her * *

I’m having some major Trini and Jason feels right now. 

Like, when they first started as a group, Jason had thought that Trini hated him. With a burning passion in the I-hate-you-please-never-speak-to-me-again way, especially with the way she interacts with the others compared to him.

Until one day, when Jason is about to leave his house to go do something, Trini shows up at his front door. He’s so confused and has no idea what to do, and Trini looks like she’s about to change her mind and leave but instead she just asks him if it’s okay if she hangs out and he’s still so ???? but lets her in anyways. 

He asks her whats wrong, thinking that she’s probably just going to ignore him but then she starts ranting about her parents, and how she’s trying so hard to make them proud of her and he’s quietly listening suddenly Trini just blurts, “The only good thing about me is that I’m a ranger!” 

It makes Jason so sad because Trini is so kind and patient with Billy and she jokes around and has fun with Zack and is such a good friend to Kim and is honestly there for all of them in any shape or form they need and then Jason gets furious that Trini believes the only good thing about her is when she’s the yellow ranger. 

He just goes off (he doesn’t yell but his voice does raise a bit when he’s trying to prove his point) and he tells her how he’s sure he would’ve died if it weren’t for her helping him fight Goldzar, and he talks about how important she is to the group and how important it is to him that she knows that they care.

When he’s done, Trini just stares at him in shock for a few seconds before she hugs him and mumbles, “Thanks, Jason, I really needed that.” 

X:Mom, why is my cousin called Diamond?

Y: Because her mom loves diamonds.

X: What about my name?

Y: Enough questions, Jeff deserved better.

Happy (belated) birthday to my favorite lady ever?! I wanted to get this done sooner but I am an Expert Procrastinator. :’) Listen, I shamelessly love that goofy turtle costume Joyce danced around in on The Osmond Family Show and I think it’s one of the most wholesomely pure, adorable things we’ll ever have the pleasure of witnessing in our lives so I had to draw it ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ ❤︎

The thing about Jane the Virgin is that it somehow always manages to punch. When I started watching it, I assumed it would just be a light-hearted trash show, but it isn’t. And this season has twisted my emotions in so many ways, often even manipulatively but I’m so very invested in Jane’s life that I honestly feel like it’s abandoning her (in her time of need? I dunno) to stop watching, and I can’t. I love the show, I do, I love Jane and I love that there’s still a sense of escapism in a lot of the show’s ridiculousness. But also… sometimes it hurts in a way that feels too strong. There’s a deep ache that’s reaching out beyond the screen into my real life, and that’s a really scary feeling. It makes it hard to separate myself from a show that obviously does not reflect my own reality. 

Maybe if I was able to write about it critically, thoughtfully, disconnected, it’d be easier. But every time I try, I find myself feeling like the emotional side is overwhelming. I have an emotional response to the show, okay. It’s just… it feels like smaller shows I’ve watched (I always think of that other Jane, from AoJE, who remains my closest friend that doesn’t actually exist), when characters became my friends and their lives became inseparable from my own. Except here… here I can’t trust the writers, I can’t trust the narrative, I can’t trust the show as a concept to take my feelings into account. My feelings don’t matter here. I don’t matter, not to Jane Villanueva. I shouldn’t matter to her - she isn’t real. She shouldn’t be so real to me either, and yet she is.

Jane the Virgin is still probably my favorite currently-running TV show. I love it in all sorts of ways. But some days, it feels like that love comes with a lot of other bundled up emotions. Pain and sadness and loneliness, in a weird mashup. Some emotional dimension that I can’t quite wave away, but don’t know how to fully access either.

Maybe I should just go back to writing criticism and meta. Maybe it will help, in some twisted, roundabout way. Who knows.

“We all have one thing in common - we want to be loved for who we are. We need to celebrate our differences. For instance, I’m gay. I’m not bragging about it but I’ve always been afraid to say it and I’m not anymore. I want this place to be a safe space where everyone feels free to be themselves. Welcome to Degrassi.”

#thankyoubones week: day 4 → 9 angela montenegro iconic quotes

Angela ❤️  She is such a blessing to Bones, honestly. She’s brought so much warmth and heart to this show, and I can’t ever imagine Bones without her. ‘You are the best of us Miss Montenegro’… her kind words, and loving, honest friendships with literally everyone on the show (most especially with Brennan) has always been one of the best things about her character. SHE was the first face we came to know, back in that airport, she got the honour of being the first main character to grace our screens with her charm and sassiness. To say that I’m gonna miss Angela Montenegro is an understatement, because, while I may not see much of myself in her, she’s also taught me so many things and changed my outlook on a lot of important matters. And really, who wouldn’t want to have an extremely loyal, fierce-loving best friend like her? :)
