I can’t get over how tragic John Silver has effectively become by the finale. There are two two lines that stay with me about the ending: Fuck him for dictating this outcome to me. The last scene between Flint and Silver foretells what’s to come for John- everything that Flint forewarns will have effectively come true by Treasure Island. John will reach a moment in which the life he sacrificed so much for will feel insufficient- and if we are to truly believe that ethereal, glorious Madi Scott will one day become obscured to a life as inn keeper or if, perhaps more realistically, she simply will have to live her life with the constant what if of having accomplished abolition, I think we can see how the life Silver afforded them will feel too small, too suffocating for them both.
The other line is when Silver raises a gun to Flint, saying that the cycle of choosing between lives, aspirations, and loves has to end. When I see that shot of Silver standing on the cliff where he and Flint once trained, my chest gets tight with the tragedy of it: with how much Madi loves Flint and will never see him again, will never have had gotten to say goodbye. with how much Silver loves Flint and will have to live with the fact that ending the cycle of Flint’s war meant choosing between loves all the same. One day, I think, Silver will realize the world was wide enough for all of them, if he didn’t realize it in that moment where Madi still anguished even after hearing what became of Flint and (god bless Luke Arnold) Silver looks as if the world has come crashing down on him. He’ll always feel that a part of his mind is shared with Flint, that a part of his heart is still truncated in the thought of him. He’ll stand by that cliff often and he’ll look out into the thin, crisp line where sky and ocean meet and he won’t be looking for Nassau. He’ll be looking for Flint. He’ll be aching with the string of his sacrifice, of having been too blinded to strive towards a different end.
Madi will carry Flint in every book she loves. Madi will remember him in her own ambition, in her own zealousness. When the world isn’t as it should be, as it could’ve been, she’ll remember him. When she commands her people or speaks to them with authority, she’ll think of all the people who contributed to her ability to lead: her father, her mother, and a close and precious friend.
So, for me, the tragedy of Silver isn’t just that one day he’ll be doomed to become a corrosion of Long John Silver, with a boy named Jim Hawkins desperate to understand. The tragedy isn’t just that Madi, like Silver, may have to contend with obscurity and the loss of power as he does, perhaps more so than he does. But it’s that their hearts will always ache for the man who toils far across the sea, reunited at last with his love. There will always be a place in thier hearts where Flint’s memory will stay, where they’ll miss him, where they’ll wish Silver had found some other alternative than to keep Flint and Thomas so far away. Silver is always going to go back to that cliff and the degree to which he fucked up will have to be something he lives with. He didn’t want to continue a cycle of war where he would have to negotiate between loves, between happinesses, but he does. He has and it’s a decision done in love. A part of him, I think, will never stop loving and longing and mourning for Flint, for the loss of him, for the pain of never seeing him again. But Flint will be with Thomas, happier than he ever imagined to be, happy as Flint deserves. and Silver will go on thinking that his decision woke James McGraw from a long and terrible sleep. And so the decision comes to this. If you love someone, set them free.
So yesterday, I looked for movies on Netflix, and I came upon a German movie called ‘Look who’s back’. This movie is from 2014, bear with me. So the storyline is that basically Hitler comes back in 2014, he wakes up suddenly in a wood, where his bunker once was, he was teleported there a few moments before he lost and commited suicide. Hitler goes on and discovers modern Germany, ofc he’s no pleased… up to the point where he meets a young journalist Savatsky, who believes Hitler to be a very good impersonator of the dictator. Savatsky has just been fired from the channel that employed him. He sees the opportunity and starts to make a small docu with Hitler in modern Germany, Hitler has in mind to take power back ofc. Up to the point that Savatsky presents Hitler (whom he still believes to be an impersonator), to his ex bosses, they love him and they re hire Savatsky and plan a show with Hitler, they air it and the people love it and love him, he becomes a new sensation, people agree with him, about what he says, and all… he becomes a star…
Up to the point that Hitler writes a book and they decide to do a movie based off that book. Everyone just think it’s a funny but accurate impersonator of Hitler… At some point in the movie Savatsky starts dating a young woman who works for the same channel, she happens to be jew, she also has a granny that has alzheimer. Following Hitler’s success, Savatsky and Hitler are invited by the girlfriend (she lives with her grandma), but everything doesn’t go as planned: the granny recognizes Hitler, she knows it’s him, she’s outraged ( remember she is a jewish woman and she says she has lost a lot of family members in the holocaust) and she says this to him:
*remember how people and the medias were having a good laugh at Trump’s apparitions and moments??? Ring a bell?
So by then Savatsky realizes he’s not an impersonator, he does a bit more research how 2014!Hitler arrived and he’s convinced now he’s the real one, which he is, he confronts him and Hitler says he never hid it (true he never did). So Savatsky takes out a gun and threatens him and takes him on a roof, on their way there they discuss:
To which Hitler replies:
*Reminds anyone of Trump’s supporters praising their leader for doing exactly what he promised?* The people knew what they did, they were not tricked into it, same with Trump, they knew what they voted for.
Savatsky and Hitler arrive on the roof and S. is still holding that gun against H.
Savatsy says to Hitler:
To which Hitler replis:
*And this is the ugly truth my friends.
So after all this tirade, Hitler says to Savatsky he can’t kill him, doesn’t have the guts etc… But he does, Savatsky shoots Hitler in the heard and he falls off the roof. S. approaches the roof top to see the corpse, but there’s none… Because Hitler didn’t die, he’s behind Savatsky. And he tells him that:
That last sentence he says to Savatsky is actually terrifying because of its truth.
The end is a bit dissatisfying, but that’s not the point, at first, I thought it was a stupid comedy, and at some point I even started to think the message might be disgusting as he interrogated those people and they said pretty nasty things about foreigners etc…(keep in mind a lot of this was unscripted and was just them interrogating random people in the streets). But in the end I got it, it was a message, and the message is that today, people would and could vote for Hitler. Those same rethorics are back and people are buying into it more and more. This movie was filmed in 2014… we’re ine 2017 and Trump is president of the most powerful country in the world… This movie was more than a satire, it was a warning…
I think it’s best this one doesn’t have a summary… I’m so sorry
Thanks @elsiemcclay for being a great beta, and for thinking up the title because I suck at titles! This is a shorter-than-usual one-shot before the next YT AU thing, which will probably be followed with angst.
Lance skidded to a stop, looking with
terrified eyes across the dining hall towards the red paladin staring
back at him.
Keith’s expression was stone cold,
betraying no emotion.
Lance raised his shaking hands into
the air, dropping his gun on the floor. Keith already had his own
weapon aimed and ready.
“K-Keith,” Lance said, trying for
a smile. “Please, put the gun down. You don’t have to do this.
Let’s just talk it out!”
“There’s nothing to talk about
Lance,” Keith’s finger moved to the trigger. “You know I have no
“But you do!” Lance pleaded,
wringing his hands. “We’re a good team, remember? We should be
working together! I… Keith, I love you!”
Jason and Tim arguing over who had it worse when it came to living up to their predecessor's legacy
‘All I’m saying is… I was living in the shadow of a dead boy.’
Jason looked up from his book with a scowl, turning the page a bit more roughly than he had meant to. He and Tim had been holding their own pity party of “who had it worse” as Robin when it came to living up to their predecessor’s legacy. Jason had made some comment about “back in my days as Robin”, and Tim had had enough self-respect to become offended. And as a consequence, Jason had only gotten through five pages and was tempted to just give up reading altogether.
Truth be told, he knew that Tim probably had it much worse than him, when it came to this specific issue. And he was only arguing with him because he knew how much arguing for the sake of arguing annoyed his brother.
But then again, the only thing Tim really had to do in order to surpass his predecessor, was not die… so Jason stuck to his guns. He set his book down and leaned forward, giving Tim his best “I don’t even have time to tell you how wrong you are” look.
‘Tim. Firstly, I’m a bit offended at being called a, quote unquote, “dead boy”…’
Tim frowned. ‘You call yourself a dead boy all the-’
‘-And secondly,’ Jason interrupted him cooly, ‘My standards were far, faaaar lower than Dick’s. To live up to my predecessor’s legacy meant being a perfect, obedient, chirpy, quipping, circus act, which was not happening in a million years unless global warming wasn’t a thing and hell froze over, giving us another ice age. You, on the other hand, just had to not do any of the things I did.’
Tim pursed his lips, sitting there in silence as he regarded Jason with a look of complete and utter exasperation.
‘So…’ he said slowly, enunciating every word, ‘not die.’
Jason nodded, rolling his eyes. ‘Yeah. Like I said. Lower standards.’
Tim sighed, massaging his forehead as he turned back to his laptop, tapping the keys distractedly. ‘Okay. But consider this: in order to not die, I actually had to achieve a standard of near-perfection as Robin that not even you or Dick were expected or pressured to reach.’
‘Okay,’ Jason countered. ‘But consider this: in Bruce’s eyes, none of us are ever good enough.’
‘So your point is, we’ve all had it bad and it’s pointless to try and decide who had it worst because we all had a common denominator and standard to live up to: Bruce.’
Jason shrugged and lay on his back on the sofa, opening the book again.
‘Even Bruce doesn’t live up to Bruce’s standards, so yes. It’s fucked up and we were all screwed from the start.’
‘Oh boy. That went south real quick.’
‘So wait, when I go off on Bruce, it’s too far. But when we’re talking about when I was a “dead boy” it’s all fine and dandy?’
‘All the time, Jason,’ Tim repeated without looking up from his laptop, his voice bland. ‘All. The. Time.’
Unable to think of a reasonable response or blatant lie, Jason scoffed and stood to find somewhere he could read in peace and not get his ear talked off or, god forbid, counselled by his younger brother.
‘Well, you try dying and see if you can stop talking about it. It’s a life-altering event, a real milestone.’
‘It’s also only meant to happen once,’ Tim said pointedly.
Jason paused to consider this. ‘Hold up. So, technically, Damian has already lived up to the standard I set as Robin because he also died and came back. Grayson had to fake it, so he’s disqualified… and we’re not counting Steph because she was never even given a chance, and would beat all our asses in the ‘who had it worst’ game.’
‘Which means I do have it worse than you, because the standard I now have to live up to is resurrection.’
‘WWJD, Timbo,’ he grinned, finger-gunning his brother as he walked backwards out the door. ‘”What Would Jason Do?”’
‘Die and come back a salty gun enthusiast,’ Tim muttered under his breath, mulling over their conversation and taking it more seriously than he should. ‘Also, Easter was last month.’
…you know the “what if Aliens find us cute?” post?
Thor. Thor is the Alien that finds us cute.
He makes adverts in his spare time with sad Valhalla equivalent Sarah MacLaine music showcasing us being helpless and ridiculous
The Avengers somehow get to see one of these videos. Maybe Loki shows them or something idk
At the end of the video it has Thor saying “Humans. We need to protect them because they are helpless and ridiculous. All except-” the entire Avengers team leans forward to find out which one of them isn’t deemed helpless “her” a picture of Darcy flashes on the screen “She is not helpless. Fear her wrath.”
They all turn to look at Thor who just raises an eyebrow as if to say “am
“In fairness he’s right” Loki agrees shooting Darcy some finger guns. She replies with a raised finger and doesn’t look up from her phone.
So I’m always seeing around the place that many people think that this mysterious person in “The Belly of the Weblum” episode is Keith’s mom
But I personally don’t believe that’s true and I’m going to explain why
First of all, unless Keith’s mother completely forgot her son existed or just didn’t recognize him off the bat (which is highly unlikely but possible depending on the circumstances), what mother would turn a gun on their son?
With literally 0 to no regrets, you can tell by their body language that they don’t care about Keith’s safety or well-being at all
If this was really his mom, don’t you think she would have taken this chance to reveal herself to her child? Done something other than try to threaten him with a gun? :,D I don’t know, that’s just the only thing that makes sense to me in this situation
What I do personally believe though is that this person is definitely Galra (you can tell by their hands) and most likely female
If Voltron is down for making really curvaceous and feminine looking men, I’m all for it, but I doubt that they did. You can tell by the silhouette and cut of the body that there is definitely a woman underneath that suit, I just don’t think it’s Keith’s mom
(Also I could be wrong, but the way her body looks, she really comes off as younger to me, like a young woman but idk for sure…)
As a matter of fact, her suit looks very similar to Lotor’s armour, as in the design, frame, helmet and some patterns (on the chest area)
It’s not completely similar, but it’s a pretty close resemblance
The fact that this person pulled out a gun on Keith twice, has similar armour to Lotor, and is most likely Galra pretty much leads me to believe she’s somewhat apart of the Galra Empire which would make sense as to why she looks at Keith as an enemy
Who knows, this person could even be related to Lotor somehow, but I just don’t think it makes sense that this is Keith’s mother
But you know, I could also be hella wrong, but again this is just a theory. Something is telling me that this girl is possibly closely acquainted with Lotor/Zarkon and the Galra Empire. Anyways, I guess we’ll just have to wait for season three to find out
The fact that she was even included in the recent poster must mean she must be important too
I’ve had this idea in my head for quite a while now ever since I watched the end of ketsu, hear me out.
Durarara!! cast as movie actors.
- Izaya having to constantly redo the scene cuz he keeps laughing at the lines and ‘this guy is an asshole I fucking love him’ about his character.
- Ever since Mikado got the prop gun on set which would be used in the ‘ketsu’ end, he constantly rehears his lines and use the gun as he would during the set. ‘It’s for immersion’ he tells everyone. Kida grows tired of this and swaps it with a replica but one that’s an actual water-gun. Mikado still hasn’t forgiven him.
- Because of Celty’s lack of head in the series, she constantly has to wear a greenscreen wrapped around her head during set and every now and then there’s a mysterious swapping of imagery. Instead of smoke curling around where her head is supposed to be there’s now a bowl of cereal with milk being gently poured into it.
-Shizuo is a child and you would think he’s calm and collected because of the character he’s acting, but ohno, he’s a confused lil kid who constantly forgets his lines and forgets to take out his lollipop during rehearsal which has lead to a lot of scenes being re-taken.
-Despite Shizuo being kinda clumsy and forgetful, when he’s being serious (or ‘in the mood’ as Izaya so generously put it) he leaves everyone in awe of his acting.
- Akane is a fucking angel in real life as well and she clings to Akabayashi whenever he’s not acting. She also steals a lot of Shizuo’s sweets from his bag, thinking she’s being stealthy but Shizuo knows and keeps putting more candy in that specific corner of the bag so she’ll find it easier.
-Shiki has, more than once, sat in the back of the usual prop car and made money rain whilst
Lil Wayne ft Fat Joe - Make It Rain
plays in the background.
- The crew has noted Izaya is terrible at catch as they had to replace Celty’s prop head to a smaller sized water melon for him to practice with because he keeps dropping and throwing the head.
- Anri loves to pose with her sword, saying she feels like Michonne from The walking dead.
- The durarara!! cast snapping pics every time Shizuo and Izaya are near each other outside of the set (eating, walking, talking etc…) and posting it to the official DRRR!! cast twitter page #whatisthis????!?!?! #shizayaisreal?!?!?
- Erika and Walker sometimes disappears from set and aren’t found for hours. Usually they can be found in a corner reading manga or their lines.
-Shizuo and Izaya are actually best friends (like their voice actors Kamiya Hiroshi & Ono Daisuke) and cannot stop teasing each other on set.
“Be a dear and don’t forget your lines this time around?”
“Maybe I’ll forget to not throw the vending machine and you’ll end up in a hospital for a change!”
“Oh wow, nice, remember that line.”
“You think? Oh thanks.”
-The term ‘break a leg’ is forbidden to say unless you want Shizuo to actually do it.
- Mikado accidentally did stab Aoba with that pen and, although Aoba insisted he was okay, Mikado could not stop crying and apologizing to him.
- Every Friday is taco Friday. They all gather at a restaurant and have a nice time together.
- Shinra actually hates the sight of blood and once fainted during the act where he’s supposed to treat Shizuos gun shot wound on his leg. Despite knowing it’s fake, he still can’t stand the thought of seeing that dark red colour on his friends.
- Speaking of fainting, at the final confrontation with Izaya and Shizuo, neither of them could remain in character for long because of all the tension, and had to stop multiple times because of emotional stress. Shizuo, fearing he’ll actually hurt Izaya when hitting him, actually fainted after seeing the ‘in act Izaya’s face of pain’. The stress and the guilt of actually hurting his best friend was too great for him and as Izaya sat there on the floor with him, hugging him, he assured Shizuo that ‘you monster can’t hurt me, I’m Orihara fucking Izaya’. Shizuo didn’t let Izaya go for an entire hour.
Of course there’s some plot-holes and such which I can’t figure out how to solve, like their name being the same as the ‘characters’ they’re playing, but I can’t stop thinking about this AU.
I’ll prolly add more to this so stay tuned if you wish to know more. Or please come talk to me about this AU, I need to TAL K MORE DRRR.
Let’s talk about one of the first realizations we came to this season, shall we?
I’m talking about the first episode. Everyone kept calling Clarke “Wanheda.” Then, at the end, Bellamy calls her “Princess,” reminding her of who she is, and keeping her grounded.
All throughout this season, various characters have been bringing up L.exa a lot. Like… a lot. Some would argue, far more often than is really necessary, and I know there are some people who are getting very tired of it. There are a lot of people who have been upset with the writers for some of the ways they’ve used her name.
Characters, even characters that never saw L.exa and Clarke together would tell Clarke that L.exa would be proud of her. Roan said that Clarke learned nothing from L.exa, and that she’d be disappointed. Clarke herself used L.exa to try and get the grounders not to fight in the conclave.
What if that isn’t as pointless as a lot of us thought? Hear me out.
I think it was a long-term set-up for a parallel of that first episode, leading up to the parallel between L.exa’s betrayal of Clarke and Clarke’s betrayal of Bellamy, specifically involving Clarke’s relationship with love.
Clarke’s character arc this season has been centered around her own leadership, and her struggle to do what is right in that position while also battling her own trauma stemming back from, I think, the massacre at Mount Weather.
All season, as I said, characters have been comparing Clarke’s leadership to L.exa’s—especially Clarke.
Clarke’s opinion of who she thinks she should be has changed because of this. In the City of Light, L.exa said, “I told you my spirit would choose wisely,” which I think played a large role in why Clarke thought it would be okay for her to take the flame. But I digress.
This enormous weight of responsibility and trauma and stress has reached a peak for Clarke in 4x11 when she pulls a gun on Bellamy (as seen paralleled to L.exa’s leaving Clarke and skikru to die in bellarke-stydia’s beautiful gifset).
The question to ask here is: What’s the difference?
L.exa believed that love was weakness, at least at the point of her betrayal. As such, she had no one to talk her down, no one to advise her in a way that she’d listen.
The same is not true for Clarke in season four. It’s been proven over and over again that, to Clarke, love is strength. From The List to “you keep her centered,” Clarke needs to be able to be open with someone—to share the burden.
Everyone has been pressuring Clarke to be more like L.exa, to compartmentalize and do what’s best for her people specifically, no matter the cost. But that’s not who Clarke is. She can’t function like that without breaking, like we’re going to see in 4x11.
Some people are worried about the gun scene in the promo, but in my opinion? We have nothing to fear.
If there’s one difference between the Betrayal parallels, it’s Bellamy. Bellamy’s arc this season has been learning when to know when someone can be saved. “You can’t save someone who doesn’t want to be saved,” is true. But Clarke wants to be saved. Her hand shaking so violently in the promo is proof enough of that. Pulling that gun is a cry for help.
Remember Jaha’s line in Day Trip: Part Two? “How many people do you need to save before you forgive yourself?” The answer is, “just one.”
There’s more than one way to save someone. And we’re going to see it when Clarke stops hearing “Wanheda,” and instead hears “Princess.”
why your ‘ashley williams is a space racist’ theory is garbage:
‘i can’t tell the aliens from the animals’ - given her reaction, we can assume that this is ashley’s first time being around less humanoid species like the elcor (which do look a lot like elephants). yeah it’s a rude thing to say but one rude comment (that is no less rude than, say, the things garrus says about quarians in the very same game) hardly justifies acting like she’s an irredeemable bigot
that one conversation everyone crucifies her for (’if you’re fighting a bear and the only way for you to survive is so sic your dog on it and run, you’ll do it’) - this one is literally just people misunderstanding the metaphor she uses and assuming she’s referring to aliens as animals again. the dog in her metaphor is humanity whereas the human in the metaphor is actually the council races. she’s saying that the second one of the other council races is in trouble, they’ll throw humanity aside and put themselves first. which………. she isn’t wrong about. that’s exactly what happens at the beginning of me3. ‘i don’t think we should turn down allies. i just don’t think we should bet on them staying allies.’
by me3, every single character has grown and ashley’s growth is most obvious to me in the scene where she holds a gun on shepard (her commander, friend, and possibly lover) to protect the council. you know, those aliens you claim she hates. she can also shoot udina, the human councilor, for holding a gun on, you guessed it, another alien you claim she hates
but yeah, ashley’s such a space racist
also btw i don’t want to hear your annoying, boring, repetitive hate. if you reply to this with ashley hate, i’m ignoring it and also blocking you. at this point, it’s just annoying and exhausting
This might be my opinion, but I really hate when some Doctor Who fans act like RTD invented Doctor Who, and that his series are the standard for what Doctor Who should be. Particularly when they whine about how apparently the Doctor doesn’t care about people anymore, as if 10′s hypocritical “no guns”, savior-complex pacifism is the end-all, be-all for the Doctor. Like I’m sorry if 10 tricked you into thinking that the Doctor never does wrong, but he has a long history of morally questionable decisions. 10 wanted to see himself as morally unambiguous, and the narrative presented him as such, which in my opinion was a mistake. The Waters of Mars was the only time that 10 was ever called out for his savior complex, but by that time it was too late to actually go anywhere with that development. On the other hand, both 12 and the narrative surrounding him are painfully aware of his moral ambiguity. When the Doctor does something that seems heartless, it’s not “bad writing”, it’s the character actually being explored and developed in a way that the Tennant era didn’t do until it was too late. The Moffat era is hyperaware of itself. Characters make mistakes and are frequently called out on them. When was Rose ever called out for abandoning her boyfriend without Mickey being painted as the villain? Compare this to Clara’s arc in series 8, where both she and the narrative are perfectly aware that lying to Danny isn’t good, but she keeps doing it anyway due to her growing adventure addiction, which leads into her series 9 character arc. That’s interesting, complex development, where the narrative is aware of the characters’ flaws, and calls them out on it. But no, Smith’s Doctor used a gun that one time, which Tennant’s Doctor said was bad, so clearly he’s not the Doctor, Moffat has never seen a single episode in his life and should hang up his pen in shame and disgrace.
So basically, it just really grinds my gears that there’s this whole host of fans who don’t appreciate the intricacies of Moffat’s characterization just because it’s not like RTD’s which they now think is the standard that all DW should be held to.
I like to think that the concept of Matches Malone got so out of control in the Batcave that the Malones become a historical mob family name in Gotham. The habit Bruce has of using Matches Malone as a shield for him to do emotional things spreads like wildfire and suddenly the Malone family is huge and pops up around most major holidays and birthdays, destroys other crime families, and disappears. Repeat every year. They are the worst and longest living crime family in Gotham.
Here’s the cast so far:
Matches “Legs”* Malone-Bruce Wayne
Patches “Legs”* Malone-Dick Grayson Eldest son of the Malone family. Patches takes his day job as a circus clown very seriously, to Matches’ great disappointment. Matches can be frequently seen telling Patches to stop “clowning around (pointed look to the non-audience) and take the family business seriously”. Their relationship is bittersweet, as Patches only became a circus clown because he thought it was what his father wanted. Having given him Patches as a real legal name that shows up on all of his State I.D.s. Rumored to be Swifty’s (ex)husband.
“Sonny” “The Chef” “Legs”* Malone-Jason Todd Second eldest son of the Malone family. Exists to bring food in to the team. Became feared by many in Gotham when it was rumored that he sometimes hid guns and ammunition in the food he served. This Malone originally didn’t have a first name, but was always introduced by Matches with the line “ah, my son, The Chef, is here”. This was poor scripting and became awkward when other Malone sons were in the room, so it was gradually changed to “Ah, it’s…Sonny.” Sonny is feared and loved by all mob families in Gotham because he serves up “the best of the best” in Gotham cuisine and “you can’t prove he poisons anything”. While his restaurant does not exist, it’s earned 5 stars on every Yelp! review.
Ok so a popular theory going around right now is that our rick and morty weren’t the originals for each other and that rick replaced his morty with the current one at some point. Its also been pointed out that rick has memories of a baby morty even tho beth has said that she hasn’t seen her father in twenty years. So what if rick originally was with his family in one universe but something happened to his morty which caused him to invent his portal gun so he could reunite with morty. Also it explains why he’s the rickest rick and why he seems to care for summer and morty the most. Its because hes the original and made his portal gun and started everything thing just to reunite his family and everything else just happened as a result of that. BONUS:what if the reason rick says a cocky morty is a bad thing is because thats what got his morty killed the first time. BONUS x2:what if his original morty survived without his knowledge but by the time he recovered rick had already made the portal gun and seemingly abandoned his morty which is why the “evil” morty has a grudge against rick.
oAll right I have a multi-chapter fic that I’m currently in the process of updating. However; I have another idea for a one-shot fic series and I would like to know if people would be interested in reading it.
When fighting #VillainOfTheWeek Kara somehow gets stuck as a 4 year old.
I have a few ideas already:
Tiny Kara causing mischief at the DEO Base - messing with Winn’s computer, flying around the rooms.
Tiny Kara still having superpowers^ but is nowhere near as strong anymore so she actually can get hurt, cue protective Alex
Kara being scared of thunderstorms and loud noises
Kara being left with Winn because now J’onn has to cover for the city loss of Supergirl. Kara pouting and getting scared whenever Alex or James are out in the field
Kara riding shotgun in Maggie’s cop car and playing with the sirens.
One person cannot look after this tiny child alone so Kara stays with different people depending on who has the free time.
(In this universe Lena knows and helps at the DEO when needed)
Whenever Lena shows up tiny Kara blushes and gets really nervous.
Tiny child Kara who has no filter tells Lena that she thinks she’s beautiful. Kara drawing pictures of the two of them together and Lena is the only one who can calm angry child Kara down when she’s upset.
Alex giving Kara juice cartons and everyone doting on this sweet innocent child.
Reluctant Space Dad sitting with Kara as she colours or when he has to give her piggyback rides with the most deadpan face.
These are just a few of my ideas but any more are welcome. Let me know if this is something people would be interested in reading and any suggestions are gladly appreciated! Will add any suggestions I like in bold!
Kara wants to play hide seek with J'onn. To her everything is a game, she starts to run around the DEO always doing something and J'onn is going after her.
Kara has a stuffed animal dog that she NEEDS in order to nap. She names it Krypto - @bobbywatson <3
Kara wants to be just like her big sister. And as children do she copies Alex’s behaviour. (her big sister wears a cool uniform at work and tells people what to do and so does Space dad.) Cue Winn and his sewing skills.
^ Next time Alex gets back from a mission she finds little Kara in a tiny DEO uniform complete with badge, standing on a chair(that on closer inspection has a tiny NCPD jacket that looks just like Maggie’s hanging off it) beside J'onn with her hands on her hips waiting to debrief the team.
Obviously they can’t give her any weapons so she has a water gun in her tiny holster, and different little snacks in all the other compartments on the belt. They did give her real handcuffs, which they felt only a bit bad about when she cuffed mon-el to a chair and flew away. (anon I love you for this little addition<3)
Cat and Lucy end up having to babysit at one point.
^ Cat pretends to not know about Kara being Supergirl in order to take care of her, and to everyone’s “surprise” she is a total softie and great with Kara.
Lucy watches Kara at one point, and she lets Kara wear her cool hat and Kara starts saluting everyone and every thing they come across (yes that includes saluting her stuffed dog pup Krypto)
Cat finally giving Kara one of her cupcakes because damn it if even she can’t resist a 4 year old Ray Of Sunshine pouting and pleading with her
4 year old Kara reverts back to speaking Kryptonian especially when she’s angry or upset. J’onn who can speak some Kryptonian does not approve when this tiny girl grumbles a “bad word trying to punch another of his brand new monitors.
^ which then gives me Tiny Kara punching punchbags with James.
Lena is a smart woman and because of Lex and learning that Kara is from Krypton Lena learns to speak Kryptonian. She speaks it almost fluently. Kara and Lena often have conversations in Kryptonian. - @whiterose-blackrose <3<3
Kara is restless and almost always has bundles of energy so getting her to sleep is quite a task. Lena is called whenever Kara is being particularly difficult because for some reason she is the sleep whisperer. (Alex knows it’s because Kara likes to snuggle up to Lena, falling asleep cradled in Lena’s arms -one hand wrapped around her Krypto whilst the other clings to Lena’s clothing)
Alex often finds Kara sitting atop of Maggie’s shoulders, Maggie is great with Kara even if she does sneakily give Kara two more scoops of ice-cream when she’s only allowed one.
M’gann WHO DID NOT LEAVE gives Tiny Kara stickers, a shit ton of stickers. Kara has a book full of space stickers. When she thinks someone did a really good job she gives them a sticker and everyone tries to act like it’s no big deal but even the toughest DEO agents blush and melt when she beams and presents them with one. You know every agent is working their butt off to earn stickers from their adorable Baby-Agent Kara. J’onn doesn’t even complain, productivity is way up! -anon you are wonderful! <3<3<3
^ (my addition to this) Kara gives her favourite people more than one sticker and proceeds to pepper them with multiple stickers. Winn sniggers as Alex’s DEO badge has at least 10 and Lena’s dress is just covered in brightly coloured star stickers.
Kara gets Alex and Maggie to take her to the park, holding both of their hands as they swing her and then they help her pick out some of the nicest flowers she can find. Lena is in her office when Kara arrives nervously clutching Alex’s hand, the other clutching a large bouquet of flowers. She hands them to Lena with a shy smile and a whispered “Flowers are pretty but not as pretty as you”. Lena answers with a kiss to Kara’s cheek. - @yellowanchor17 <3 (I added a bit to it)
Kara’s senses are heightened and she gets attached to being able to comforting scents. Kara likes to give Lucy lots of hugs because “she smells nice” -Lena will deny it but she’s a little bit jealous. That is until she finds out that Kara thinks Lena’s hugs “remind her of home”. - @sarcasm-with-sarah <3 (I added a little bit but this is perfect!)
Kara can be quite protective so when people *coughs* Mon-El *coughs* get a little too close to her favourite people (Alex, Lena, Maggie, Lucy etc) she tends to throw things, things that tiny 4 year old children should not throw. After almost having his hand frozen he soon learns to keep his flirting to a minimum…unless it is involves a certain tech puppy. - @sarcasm-with-sarah (THIS! I love it)
^ This links in to my own idea: Mon-El is actually great with kids, he plays games with Kara and tells her stories about space. He tells her about Royalty on Daxam and what was expected of them. Kara realises he has feelings for Winn and it becomes her match-making mission to pair the two.
One thread I really enjoy in Wynonna Earp is watching Wynonna struggle with the reality that to break the curse on herself and her family, she has to kill–and that the act of repeatedly killing people takes an actual toll on her. Her trauma is defined by the act of taking a life so thoroughly. The first life she took–inadvertently–was her own father’s. (Which is super interesting in and of itself because of the platitude “guns don’t kill, people kill,” but in the instance of Peacemaker, we come to learn that it’s quite possible that the gun, which is temperamental and sometimes fires and sometimes doesn’t, might have chosen to punish Wynonna’s father for his breach of duty. Wynonna, in that moment, might have been an instrument of Peacemaker far more than the gun was a tool in her hand. But the fact also remains that Peacemaker can’t fire itself–it needs to be held in a hand that pulls the trigger.)
Wynonna had to wrestle with what she’d done her whole life, not just the guilt that she’d orphaned her sister and herself but with how the whole town subseqently perceived her. By S1’s end, she’d gone on to kill a sister whom she’d believed dead for years.
The show makes it clear that Wynonna yearns for another way, that even though she’s putting down people who’ve adapted demonic existences that it’s weighing down on her sanity. She’s haunted by what she had to do to Willa, essentially a mercy kill for someone who had betrayed her but who was no less than blood to her.
I love that Wynonna Earp keeps the family dynamics complicated. That Waverly won’t confer sainthood or forgiveness on Willa simply because they were family and, in fact, continues to harbor a resentment towards Willa, a girl she remembers could treat her cruelly, while Wynonna clings to the memory that they were family, because family has been ripped from Wynonna through nightmarish circumstances. (It’s part of why Wynonna clings so fiercely to Doc and Dolls–the prospects of abandonment and loss loom as great fears.)
I appreciate it more because one of my long-stewing frustrations with OB is that the show sweeps the potential conflict between the clones under the rug in so many instances. WE keeps it thorny and at odds, where a rose-colored view of family for family’s sake on Wynonna’s part is contrasted with Waverly’s reluctance to capitulate to remembering well of the dead. It’s bolstered by the fact that Waverly’s insistence on honoring Willa highlights how broken her spirit is by a lifetime of tragedy and being ostracized and that Waverly’s opposition comes from a person whose personality is sunny and optimistic and is generally loved by her neighbors and who wholeheartedly loves Wynonna–even despite the fact that Wynonna is also guilty of having done some shitty big sister stuff to Waverly.
I didn’t expect this depth from Wynonna Earp when I went into the show and I really hope they continue to pursue it. Wynonna’s prickliness exists as a defense mechanism and yet we’re never far from the truth of the sarcasm’s source of insecurities and fears, where her confessions tumble out in deadpan snark. Wynonna can’t even let herself really hear Waverly’s resentment at times. I wonder if the two will have a real talk about it. With the family growing, apparently, it’s going to be interesting to see them continue to … grapple with the notion of family? The Earp clan is pretty messed up back and back through the line, honestly. I wonder if we’ll ever see their mother.
Are there any fic out there where Baze Malbus is basically the Wolverine of the Star Wars universe and everywhere he goes, he ends up with a new young lady to teach the art of being grumpy and kicking ass too? Cause I think there should be
Oh god so I may… have started writing a thing?
Baze wakes up, which is the first surprise. The second comes at the feel of desert under him, similar but wholly different to the sands of Scarif. For an overwhelming second he thinks he’s back on Jedha, but he knows Jedha’s land in the very core of him, and this isn’t it. This is something very different.
It takes him the whole of the suns trek across the sky to learn just how much.
Niima Outpost is small, ragged, and untrusting. But it does have water. Foul, sour water, but water nonetheless. Baze has had worse. It also has information, which Base finds infinitely harder to stomach.
It takes him a while to understand what the wrinkled stall-holder is telling him—he’s somehow skipped not only years but an epoch—but in the end it’s clear. Or as clear as it can be. Because while almost three decades seem to have passed, they’ve also passed him by. The face looking back from the burnished metal plate behind the stall-holder is no older than the one that fled Jedha’s destruction. His knees certainly don’t feel the weight of his lost time.
That first night is spent mostly sleepless, his back to a wall and head spinning with his circumstance. His hands feel too empty in his lap, missing the reassuring weight of his repeater canon like a lost limb. He can’t help but curse whatever power—the Force, his head whispers traitorously even as he growls it into silence—transported him here for not bringing his firepower with him. It would have made earning passage off Jakku easier.
Which is what he must do. Because if he’s here, the burning sands of Scarif already fading into memory, he must believe that somewhere out in this future galaxy, Chirrut is as well. And if nothing else in this new time is familiar, the need to find his way back to his husband very much is.
- - -
He wakes to find a dusty, waif of a girl trying to pick his pockets. This goes about as well as expected. Even as he grabs her Baze feels a sharp pang of nostalgia for the streets of Jedha where the urchins knew well enough to avoid him, even if the worst they ever faced was a hot meal and Chirrut’s calm education on the difference between assassins and tourists. Not that he is much of either right now, out of time as he is.
The girl twists and hisses in his grip like a feral tooka and Baze has to work at making sure he doesn’t accidentally snap her toothpick of a wrist as he rises to his feet.
“Stop that,” he says mildly, not very surprised when that just gets him a feral growl and renewed thrashing. Baze rolls his eyes and lifts the girl into the air until she tires herself out. It doesn’t take long. The rags she’s wearing do nothing to hide the lack of meat on her bones.
“Are you finished?” he says after she goes limp, hanging like a particularly angular vine in his grip.
A second, and then finally a nod.
Baze lowers the creature to the ground and is unsurprised when she takes the opportunity to scarper. The kick to the groin however…
Baze groans as he slowly unfolds himself. The girl has disappeared into the growing rush of the early-morning market. Baze would curse her if he weren’t so very mildly impressed.
