To wax lyrical about the beauty that is the bellarke partnership.
And first of all I’d like to say that I really appreciate how calm Bellamy Blake can be, especially at times when she is at her lowest. As many pointed out correctly, the moment he gallivanted off to get the hydrogenerator the pressure came crashing down on her. It doesn’t mean she didn’t eventually keep it together. It just that the pressure is so much heavier without his support. And I’m glad it is now being spelt out more clearly by the show, because though it has been shown throughout the past seasons, somehow, people seem to miss it (or want to ignore it, I mean, lbr about fandom here).
Bellamy seems to always have this quiet resolve when it comes to Clarke. This scene actually reminded me a lot of two scenes in season 2. Once in the tunnels when she sees him and asks him to please tell her that he has the plan (because she doesn’t), and he matter-of-factly tells her that he doesn’t. YET, it manages to calm Clarke down so much and spur her on to find Dante. Then in the control room when Clarke knows she has to pull the lever but in that moment she’s just so scared and helpless - That is the scene I was heavily reminded of in this episode (4x03), because she just looks up at Bellamy, she wants her name to be on the list - but she just can’t do it.
In 2x16, Bellamy doesn’t skip a beat and puts his hand over hers, telling her they’d do it together. In 4x03, he just tells her quite plainly that if she wouldn’t put her name down, he’d do it. She’s so vulnerable in that moment (Eliza played it so well, bless her), so unconvinced that she should be on that list. But it’s not even a question for him that she should be - So this is how he saves her.
You know what I think? I think he knew the moment he woke up and saw her crying that his name would be on the list without hers on it. Because while Bellamy Blake may not know she’s in love with him - he sure knows Clarke well enough to know that she would do something like that. And Clarke knows Bellamy knows because she turns her eyes away from him.
@markrosewater recently answered an ask about teaser cards in sets and I’ve been thinking about it ever since. What I’m referring to as a teaser card is a card the makes reference to something that’s in the pipeline but which hasn’t been printed yet. It’s a card (or cards) that will come in a later set or block.
I believe there’s a right and a wrong way to do these. Read on to see how Wizards blew it in the past and find out if Hour of Devastation will repeat the failure or deliver on the promise.
Because Sakura sees Syaoran’s pure joy and enthusiasm and she’s just so happy.
That is the most incredible panel. Do you see it. Go see it. You must. SAKURA YOU HAVE IT SO BAD FOR THE NERD.
But we also need to talk about the fact that the entire family is so genuinely supportive of Syaoran’s enthusiasm here. None of them share his same interest in history and reading but they leapt at the chance to bring him here and are so happy that he’s enjoying it. And that’s so important, both in general AND for Syaoran, because it’s another one of those moments that are about him and who he is and his identity outside of the quest for Sakura’s feathers.
They’ve come a long way since the Land of Fog, but it’s the same kind of moment that he had there. Syaoran’s own passions and interests have had time to grow and expand, and he’s growing with them. More than that, I love the difference between the two worlds. Whereas in the World of Fog it was just a private moment between Syaoran and his memories (and after jumping into a lake for self sacrificing reasons) now it’s a moment between Syaoran and his family, who all support him and are excited for him and actively took steps to make this happen.
IT’S SUCH A GOOD MOMENT OK.
But then also MOKONA YOU CAN’T JUST VOMIT SWORDS IN THE MIDDLE OF THE LIBRARY. PUT THOSE AWAY.
i try to keep my eyes closed as my outlook isn’t bright, compulsively complaining when i haven’t got the right. i hate the way that i think and act. i want to end reality but i feel hesitant, optimistic that the future will be more concerned than the present, and so for today i’ll remain intact.
chia, you know speak spanish? and nina you know the languages that your mommies speak (the both) and which you like more? forgive my bad english i'm not pretty sure if its ok, I love you girls
Chiara: But sometimes it’s a little confused…
((There’re some words that sound exactly the same in both languages even tho the meaning it’s different uvu I just love when they say “Pronto?” instead of “Si?” or another word when answering the phone♥))
Ok, so I see a lot of stuff about the fae but I'm still not sure what it means. Is it shorthand for fairy? 'Cause it's usually somewhat malicious whenever I read something about it. But it sounds SUPER COOL and I LOVE writing fantasy stuff! But I like to have my facts in order before. Do you have a good definition of the fae? (Oh, and I'm the one that sent in that recent dialogue prompt that you wrote that alien story about - that was great! I'm glad you liked it 😁😁😁)
Well, for me it’s how I grew up learning about them! “The fae are from Faerie.” Also as the daoine maithe– the good folk.
Some people say they’re interchangeable, but this article (X) has a pretty good explanation for why it usually isn’t!
The way I understand it, “fairy” refers to the pleasant, bright creatures from Disney stories like Pinocchio (the blue fairy). It’s used to describe a being that uses their powers for the good of humans!
Fae is usually used to let the reader know that this isn’t going to be a happy story–it’s going to be a complicated one. Lots of grey and dark morality, for sure, and their own agenda! A more malicious story as you said!
Though it’s also worth noting that most stories where the term Faerie is used (underhill, the Seelie/unseelie court, etc) also contain warnings not to call the fae anything but the “good” or “gentle” folk. It’s believed that erring on the side of overly polite is just good self preservation. Funnily enough, this has been my experience in real life–regardless of your beliefs, do try not to give the scary things names.
(And thank you for the dialogue prompt! It was fun to write and I might continue it juuuuust a touch more!)
listen wynonna earp is good, i’m not disputing that at all, but i don’t want wynonna earp. i want a continuation of season 1 of supergirl. just because you have a show about 2 sisters, with one being queer, doesn’t mean that they’re the same thing. that’s like looking at two photos and saying that it’s of the same person just because they’re both wearing the same blue shirt.
wynonna earp is incredibly gory, for starters, and you know what both me and small young girls can’t really watch that for this reason tbh. and i want space fam and the superfriends, kara working at catco and dealing with being the last survivor of a dying planet, figuring out how to live in a world where her culture and language and entire family is dead and still learning to be the sunlight in her loved one’s lives
But she’s all of sunlight, illuminating and soft warmth and life bringing, helping other people to grow, but also burning and unrelenting and sometimes even painful–but ultimately it’s a show full of hope, of optimism. It’s a show about how to continue on and filling the hole in your heart and fighting like hell against the worst demon you can possibly imagine: your own self. Of losing every single thing and building your life back up and fighting tooth and nail to do good.
Of finding your own family, of juggling the balance with work and life and navigating how to be a person again, figuring out how to come back from losing literally everything and not let it eat you alive.
a man who has lived for hundreds of years and lost his entire planet to genocide finding a new family and a girl who’s actual world exploded in front of her struggling to figure out what parts of herself can be deemed “acceptably” human, figuring out how to live life as the very last of her culture while also doing good not because she has to but because she wants to, finding a new family again and continuing on, and the woman who is technically weaker but would still jump in front of a bullet for them because she do anything to protect them because they are hers and she loves them so much and she knows how much pain they’ve gone through and like hell are they going to go through anymore.
Wynonna Earp is great and it’s not a criticism to say it’s not supergirl–it’s not a criticism to say that i like italian but i love sushi but now every single piece of fish is poison, and you can only eat italian.
there isn’t anything wrong with wynonna earp, but it is still a drastically different show and i don’t want wynonna earp. i want supergirl again.
I've fallen in love with your artstyle! It's super cute!! Anyway... with Ononoki and Kanna swap. Any chance Shinobu(monogatari) dressed as Chris(konosuba)? I'm not sure which form of Shinoubu... maybe the Kiss-shot one from the Kizu Part 1 movie poster?
hey, so you're the only person I could think of to turn to. I'm beginning to think I'm nonbinary or maybe a demiboy? I'm not sure, and it's scary and my anxiety goes through the roof when I think about it. I want to express myself as more masculine, but my parents don't approve of me dressing or speaking like that. I don't know what to do, and I can't stop thinking about all of this.
I love you. I think you’re wonderful. Here’s something it might be delightful to know. Being yourself isn’t something you *think* about, it’s something you feel. And really, it’s something you feel your way into for the rest of your life.
Of course it’s ok to be scared. And, it’s ok not to spend another moment thinking about this. We assume that thinking about things will get us somewhere, but it doesn’t. Feeling always does.
“What will they say when they find out???” is thinking. Knowing in your heart who you are and what you love in life is feeling. I wish you all the feelings in the world. 💛💛
