remember when allura ran to hug her father’s corrupted AI, knowing that she was about to destroy him? remember the shocked expression on alfor’s face? remember when alfor’s true AI said goodbye to his daughter for the last time? remember when alfor wrapped his arms around her as she destroyed him?
i wish i could explain what it feels like to have to unravel a lifetime of learned thoughts and actions and question yourself so thoroughly and deal with the uncertainty that comes with examining compulsory heterosexuality and how it has affected your life. how it makes you doubt yourself. how it makes you dismiss parts of yourself, or not even notice them at all. and how much work and effort and reflection and confidence it takes to overcome it. it’s a fight. i’m proud of everyone who’s dealt with it in the past or is currently working through it and exploring who they are, and of those who will go through it in the future. it’s not always an easy thing to do but it’s so, so worth it in the end.
I’m really upset how they left out the most important thing from the movie. It’s last chapter, one simple page that has a BIG part of this whole team Jabberwock character, especially Nash.
Remember this? Remember when Silver didn’t accept the defeat and wanted a rematch?
Remember when Nash told him to shut up and to stop embarrassing himself and the team?
Remember when he said THIS ^, admitting his-their defeat? Saying how Vorpal Swords were better?
When the rest of the team still didn’t accept it completely, but did because Nash is right that scoreboard says everything?
Yeah, I’m upset because this is what made me like Nash and Jabberwock completely. Sure their game is offending and they look down on others, but this part, this damn part is the most important of their growth in that one single game that even though they’re all big and high up in the sky, they know when to back down.
Yes, I’m pissed because not all of KnB fandom read the manga and all they are, are judging Jabberwock based on the movie. I’m both pissed and disappointed.
But don’t get me wrong. I still like the movie, I just don’t find it really fair that an important moment like this wasn’t included.
Honestly I got so hopeful over finnpoe being Canon. Like the actors kept hinting at it and that one guy retweeted that fanart, it just made me so hopeful that’d I’d get a beautiful gay couple in my favorite universe. I didn’t think they’d make it obvious like a kiss, but I’d hope they would at least have them hold hands and maybe even flirt a little.
And now I’m hearing about that Kathleen kennedy bitch laughing at the thought of a gay couple and my heart is just sinking. I never should’ve felt hopeful, I never should’ve trusted those people.
Like I shouldn’t really be surprised but I’m still so upset ya know? Like why does this still have to happen? Why do people still have to be so hateful? I just wanna feel like I’m not disgusting for loving my boyfriend and I want to see the guys on screen fall in love and it not be some huge joke.
And to see it in my favorite universe would’ve meant so much to me.
My father built Voltron, but he knew Zarkon was a better leader in battle, so he became Voltron’s right hand. Lance, when you accepted Keith as the new leader of Voltron, it proved that you value a strong team over your own need for glory, just like my father.
“The king lifted a hand to her cheek and kissed her. It was not a kiss between strangers, not even a kiss between a bride and groom. It was a kiss between a man and his wife, and when it was over, the king closed his eyes and rested his forehead in the hollow of the queen’s shoulder, like a man seeking respite, like a man reaching home at the end of the day.”
orphan black is ending tomorrow!! i can’t really believe it and i have no idea how everything that’s happened is gonna get resolved.
i felt like i had to draw something for the occasion bc despite its flaws, this has been my favorite live action show ever since i bingewatched all of season 1 the summer after it aired.
apparently i’ve had this wip sitting around from over a year ago, so i decided to finish it bc i didn’t have time to start and finish a whole new thing. i couldn’t find the screencap i used as a reference, but the file was saved as ‘mk406.sai’ so i just rewatched ep4.06…. without remembering that, for a number of reasons, it was the most devastating episode of all of season 4, and quite possibly the entire show……….
so here’s an mk. i love her and i miss her.
HOPEFULLY the series finale doesn’t leave me so devastated!! fingers crossed for a happy and fulfilling ending and also tony’s return
I just reached the episode about Clay’s tape (finally, it was Tape 9 in the book I swear not Tape 11) and I have to stop the binge watch now because I am so drained, I think I’ve cried a river of tears. Just like when I read the book, I’ve never felt so sorry for someone as when Clay finds out he’s only there because Hannah needed him to hear her story; she needed him to know why. It wrecks me every time.
I can’t stop thinking about ‘it’s quite surreal’, and 'amazing, yeah. This is incredible, isn’t it?’ Because that’s how Sam and Anthony were last year. And they lost it so fast because people are awful.
With Theo and Samuel we have two young men, at the start of their career, and I just think that as a fandom we should be respectful of them and not invasive or over-excitable or rude or any of the other countless things we could do to them.
They’re human beings, doing a job that should probably be the most amazing, fun job in the world. And it looks like they’re going to be spectacular at it. But can we remember that they are just that? Human beings doing a job. They’re not toys. They’re not play things. They’re not characters. They’re not for us to speculate over or ship. They’re people with lives and families and friendships.
So can we please be kind to them and show them we care about them and value them, and not drive them away and make them jaded? Let them have this amazing experience without us ruining it for them.
They’re so young. And they deserve to enjoy themselves and keep the wonder we saw in the video today. Is that so much to ask? Can people please be nice?
I didn’t see this process play out from the beginning last time, but I know it’s coming this time and it’s horrible. It’s beginning already, and I hate everything about it.
