i'm rewatching this at the moment :)

i love season one dean with his too-big leather jacket and his ripped worn out jeans and his bracelets and ring and necklace and his freckles and long eyelashes and perfect jawline and cheeky grin

and his wide desperate eyes and his frustration because all he wants to have his family all in one place and sam and dad just can’t SEE that like he does and i love how he leans into every touch he gets because he’s so starved for it and i love the shadows under his eyes because he’s only 26 but he feels like he’s been living forever and wow oh wow i just love season one dean

“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.”

I’m a one-woman Ron Swanson Defense League.

I seriously don’t understand how that character was reinterpreted as a mean, unsmiling, hyper-herterosexual, anti-feminist, heartless jerk.

Is he a firm believer in capitalism and a staunch libertarian? Sure. Does he not much care for fussy things? Of course. Does he eat a lot of meat? Naturally.

But over seven seasons we met a man with a heart as big as the Grand Canyon, his own hobbies and interests (which he talks about with a smile on his face), he becomes a better husband and supportive, albeit sometimes clumsy, father.

His relationships with the women is his life are as varied as the women themselves. With the exception of his ex-wives, he is forthright, respectful, mentoring and supportive.

Leslie and Ron are the perfect extrovert/introvert dynamic. They work their own ways, but the mutual respect and admiration carries the day.

A selection of best Ron moments:

1. “Don’t half-ass two things, whole ass one thing”
2. Renovating the 6th floor of City Hall with his infant son.
3. Pretty much the whole Season 7 arc
4. The Dorothy Every Time Smurf Award for Excellence In Female Stuff
5. Ron helping solve the scavenger hunt Leslie gave Ben
6. Giving Leslie away at her wedding
7. Bonding with Andy when April is sick with the flu
8. Snake Juice!Ron
9. Parenting April and Andy
10. “Any other damn thing you might need.”

Leslie is the heart of the show, but Ron is its moral compass.

“The first draft of my vows - which I wrote the day after we got engaged - clocked in at around seventy pages. But I don’t have them with me today… Here’s what I’ll say, then. The things you have done for me - to help me, support me, surprise me, to make me happy - go above and beyond what any person deserves. You’re all I need. I love you and I like you.” 
“I love you and I like you.”

current sexual orientation: even-more-than-usually-dishevelled-Columbo

i’m calmer than yesterday… not actually calm but my brain can definitely function a bit better

and i’ve now rewatched the episode so many times that i’ve managed to narrow down my favourite scene to just one

in fact it’s not even a scene, it’s one tiny 8 second piece of dialogue really

when aaron says “i know i keep saying that i’m fine but-” and robert replies “about tomorrow? but you’re not. i know”

that moment is literally everything to me. i’m not even sure i can put it into any kind of coherent structure because a lot of it has to do with the delivery as well as the lines themselves 

it wasn’t just how soft they were both speaking, it wasn’t how raw aaron’s voice sounded and how gentle robert was in return. it wasn’t even that it was a slight subversion on their usual ‘but you know’ ‘i know’ tradition and somehow even more beautiful because of its differences

it was more the overarching meaning behind those two lines, because it basically encompassed everything that’s so pure and good about them together, something neither have experienced before

aaron could never open up to anyone about his fears, always pushed them down or let them out by hurting himself rather than talking it through. but robert was the first person he trusted with some of the most painful aspects of his life, the first person he felt comfortable enough with to talk about it to

and robert, someone who’s never been trusted, always the last person someone would go to if they needed help… suddenly he was someone’s go-to person. aaron had literally said it back in april: “i want to rely on you, robert” and robert had confirmed exactly how much that meant to him by answering “i want you to be able to rely on me, too”

and that’s it, isn’t it? they’re two people who each want to trust and be trusted, to love and be loved. and they’d never found it so completely before each other

and that’s what that tiny piece of dialogue summed up for me. aaron trusting robert enough to voice his deepest fears, knowing with absolute certainty that robert would be there to support and comfort him. and robert, held at arms length his whole life, suspected and accused and shunned, finally has someone who loves all of him, who wants him there through good times and bad, someone who absolutely relies on him for love and support

for such an understated moment, it really did say so much

Promises

This is definitely my favourite moment from episode 12 because both Victor and Yuuri are just so precious in this?

Look at this beautiful boy who declares he’ll win just so Victor could kiss his medal. He just wanted to retire but how could he when Victor says he failed as a coach? He’ll skate one more year and he’ll win this time ok.

But then as much as I love Victor’s ridiculous puppy eyes (same Victor, same) his answer is just so perfect because honestly, Victor’s main goal was to make Yuuri confident in his skills and to help him get the best score and the whole time after Yuuri beats his record he’s so proud and happy and Yuuri saying he wants to stay is everything he wanted to hear and yet he demands more. 

Victor, how long have you been thinking about competing with Yuuri while still coaching him? Because it looks like he already calculated all the risk and despite he doesn’t hesitate for a second? He’s so in love I can’t handle it and I also love how he puts Yuuri’s medal around his neck as if he was stating that it’s still valid but at the same time he says he wants Yuuri to win more times as he deserves.

Victor knows this is ridiculous, he was the only person ever to be able to do something like that and he was much younger when he started and he still totally looks like he thinks Yuuri could do this. Even when he does that super sweet thing with his face when he winks (I can’t find the gif but you know which one lol) it doesn’t look like his just teasing Yuuri he really is able to believe that at that moment even if he knows how it sounds. And then Yuuri doesn’t say it’s stupid or he could never do it, he says “okay”?!

He’s moved to tears because of how much Victor believes in him and how much Victor wants to do for him so they could stay together and so they could compete on the same ice because Yuuri always wanted that and promising Victor he’ll win for him is the least he can do in return?

Like this is the moment where most of their dreams come true and instead of just celebrating they sit there declaring absurd things to each other because they believe so much in the power of their love I’m so done with them, bye.

One Year of the 100: Favorite Female Character → Lexa

#that moment when you realize that there were so many signs in the first lexa scene #signs that she was the commander #that look she shares with gustus #the references to the commander #the way she tries to play the innocent and scared girl #now it’s all so obvious

Rewatching Star Wars, it always bugs me a little when Owen and Beru have their "He's too much like his father," "That's what I'm afraid of," conversation. Imagine being Baby Luke in this situation, with foster parents who are secretly afraid that you're going to snap and go on a genocidal rampage at any given moment. Guy's probably got some issues, is all I'm saying.

See, I didn’t read it at all that his parents were afraid of him or afraid of what he might do – Owen pretty obviously treats him exactly as a teenage son would be anywhere else. He gives him chores, calls him on his shit, firmly reminds Luke that he needs to honor his commitments; yes, he’s holding him back from applying to the Academy, but I’m sure that’s in part because he doesn’t want Vader finding him. 

I asked Nakki “Wait, so how exactly DOES Vader know that Luke is his son?” and she said “Well he’s been running around the galaxy calling himself Luke Skywalker” which was a good point. I would imagine applying to the Imperial Academy under the name Skywalker is sooner or later going to draw some attention. 

I think Owen is afraid for Luke more than anything – when he’s afraid he’s like his father, I figure it means Luke is too curious and adventurous for his own good, and wants to be out in the world instead of staying safely at home. It reads (and always did read) more like the concern of a parent who wants what’s best for their child and knows that child is endangering themselves, not someone who is afraid of what that child might do to them.
