hiii! please do a fic where the balloon squad goes out together at a club or something and a girl flirts with yousef (he's already dating sana for like a month) and elias gets mad because he didn't really do anything to stop her

Hey :)

I think this is not exactly what you had in mind but I hope you still like it. Let me know :D

————————————————————————————————

“We could have been here an hour ago.”, Mikael complains.

Elias and Adam shoot him an annoyed look.

While Elias says: “It takes time looking this good.” Adam answers, too.

“You didn’t even want to come in the first place so why complain that we’re late?”

Mikael just rolls his eyes and Yousef pats his shoulder. He’s in the same situation. He’d rather be somewhere quite now. While Mikael just doesn’t like going to clubs, Yousef was just not really up for it today.

Once they enter the club they find a table and look around to get a picture of what’s going on and how the mood is.

Just a few minutes later, Elias takes Yousef and Mikael by their arms and drags them to the dance floor. Those two are the best dancers out of the group and Elias knows, once they start dancing they relax instantly.

A generic pop-song that has been modified to be good to dance to is playing and Elias watches how Yousef and Mikael give each other a look and actually start moving.

Elias is not a bad dancer himself but while the two boys next to him have danced regularly their whole lives, Elias did not.

The club is full, the dance floor almost uncomfortably full, but somehow these three boys manage to get the attention of many of those other people, without even trying.

At some point there is a circle around them consisting of (mainly) girls cheering at them. When Elias drags Adam, who just joined them, with him into the middle of the circle, Yousef sees it as the best chance to take a break.

He loves dancing. It’s one of his favorite things to do, ever. However, since they’ve arrived an hour ago he has not stopped once.

Yousef finds his way back to their table where Mutta is standing. He’s not alone though. A tall, curly-haired girl is with him, leaning close to be able to understand whatever he’s saying.

Yousef just smiles at that sight. Mutta seems to really enjoy the conversation, or well, not only the conversation.

Right when Yousef decides to go get himself something to drink, someone pats his shoulder and makes him turn around.

He’s faced with a rather petite redhead. Not knowing what she wants he just waits.

“Hi!”, she shouts over the music.

Yousef just nods in a greeting way.

“Where are you going?”, he’s asked by that girl.

He point towards the bar to which she nods and starts leading the way. Okay then, he thinks.

Squishing through masses of people that are desperately trying to get their drinks, most of them to get some alcohol in their systems, used to be Yousef’s nightmare. He’d be too uncomfortable to say something so he’d end up waiting for a long time. Now, as soon as he finds a free spot, he slips into it and orders.

The bartender gives Yousef his drink and he immediately goes to leave the huge mass at the bar to go back to his table. There is just a lot going on. The music, the people, the lights going crazy. 
It’s not a very good club, Yousef thinks to himself. Why did Elias chose this one today?

“Hey, wait up!”, someone shouts which makes Yousef turn around again.

The same redhead is jogging towards him, in heels that seem to be very uncomfortable and when she reaches Yousef, she loses her footing and almost crashes into him.

Yousef tries to steady her by her arms and let’s go as soon as she’s standing properly.

“Thanks.”, she says with a smile. “I …”

She stops mid-sentence and looks down at what Yousef’s holding.

The redhead leans closer to him to say: “You’re only drinking that?”

Yousef’s eyes fall onto his glass and back up to her. He’s drinking a Coke, what’s wrong with that? 

He just nods.

“You can’t survive going to a club like this without actually drinking!”, she shouts.

Yousef shrugs and takes a step back, to go back to the table. She follows, though, and wobbles on her heels. 

After dancing for a long time, Elias decides it’s time to take a break. Even when he was really enjoying himself with a pretty brunette. Still, he leaves her behind, same as Adam and Mikael who are definitely enjoying themselves. 

It was a good decision coming here. Each of the boys had a stressful week and getting away for a few hours is never a bad thing. Elias had the chance to forget about everything while dancing with his friends and a few strangers. He had fun.

That carefree feeling he had vanishes when he sees who Yousef is accompanied by, while walking towards him. 

A short redhead is standing close to Elias’ best friend, leaning too close, not taking away her eyes from him. She has her hand on Yousef’s upper arm and twirls her hair with the other one.

Yousef, well, he’s just standing there, smiling lightly but looking bored. 

Did he forget that he’s dating Elias’ sister? Why is he standing there like that with that girl? If she doesn’t get the hint, he should step back. Okay, they’re not as close as Mutta and the girl next to him but still. 

Yousef is Sana’s boyfriend and he should be aware of that. When Sana is not there, Elias usually is. Elias knows he can’t make his sister wait to date until she’s way older, even if he would like that sometimes. And he was so happy when she chose Yousef to be with because he is his best friend and Elias can’t think of anyone to treat his sister better but this scene in front of him bothers him a lot. He quickly walks over to them and finds his place in between them. 

Yousef looks at his friend with a relieved look but Elias doesn’t notice that. He just looks at the girl and smiles at her charmingly. She grins at him and takes her hand off Yousef’s arm to put it on Elias’. She needs that to not fall over. Apparently she is a little tipsy. At least that’s what Elias assumes. 

After that Yousef goes back to join Adam and Mikael on the dance floor. 

When they’re walking back to the station to go home, Yousef notices Elias looking at him weirdly from time to time. So that’s why Yousef starts walking more slowly than the rest and holds Elias back, as well.

“Dude, what’s up?”

Elias looks at his best friend and frowns. 

“Nothing.”

It’s really cold outside and that it’s in the middle of the night doesn’t help. Walking slowly is not ideal either. 

“Elias, come on.”, Yousef urges his best friend. 

He looks over to their three other friends that are walking a few metres in front of them and sees Mutta teasing Mikael about something. Adam is obviously enjoying whatever it is. 

Elias sighs and makes Yousef look at him again. Then he just blurts it out.

“Yousef, you can’t go around being like that.”

Yousef furrows his eyebrows, very confused. “Like what?”

“Like that with the redhead. Dude, I love you but you’re with my sister and should be really careful of how you are with some stranger-girl.“ 

While Yousef notices how serious his friend is, he can’t help but feel like laughing. Exactly because Elias is so serious about it. 

"So what are you saying?”, he asks.

“Keep your distance to girls that are obviously flirting with you!”, Elias says that so loudly that Adam, Mikael and Mutta turn around to look at him. 

Yousef is receiving confused looks from them but just lightly shakes his head to say ‘It’s okay’.

“Elias. Did I flirt back?”, Yousef asks calmly.

His friend tilts his head to the side and narrows his eyes at him. “I don’t think so.”

“So what’s the problem?”, Yousef asks. Elias should know that Yousef doesn’t have eyes for anyone but Sana. After liking her for so long he’s finally with her and wouldn’t do anything to ruin that. 

Elias rolls his eyes at his best friend. Only he would be so oblivious. 

“The problem is that you did not stop that girl. You let her flirt with you. Don’t do that. Things can escalate quickly without you realizing what’s happening.”

Yousef is aware that Elias is just concerned for him and Sana, but obviously more for his sister and Yousef really appreciates that. Still, Elias should know better.

“I’m sure I’ll notice. I was just being polite. Nothing else.”

Yousef and Elias go to the Bakkoush house while the rest goes to Mutta’s. Adam, Mikael and Mutta live close to each other and Yousef and Elias live close to each other. Last time they went out Elias slept over at Yousef’s and this time Yousef will sleep over at Elias’.

For once, Elias did not forget his keys so they can get inside without waking anyone up. Well, that’s what they thought. When Elias trips over his own feet because he refused to turn on the lights in the hall, they hear rumbling from one of the rooms and finally Sana jumps into the hallway. Her hair covered by a headscarf just messily thrown on. When she sees Elias looking at her sheepishly, she gets back inside her room and comes back out in a minute with her hair properly covered. The three of them go to the kitchen. 

“How was it?”, Sana asks.

All three sit down at the table. Elias closed the door to not wake his parents, if they aren’t awake by now anyway. 

“It was good. We danced a lot.”, Elias answers and shoots a look towards Yousef.

Sana notices that that look is not his usual ‘Yousef made me look bad because he danced better’- look. It’s something else. She looks back and forth between her brother and her boyfriend and looks at them questioningly.

“What is it?”, Sana asks. 

Yousef just shrugs and points to Elias, as if to say he should be the one to answer. 

When Elias doesn’t do that, Sana says: “Elias, come on.”

Elias leans back in his seat, slides down a little and crosses his arms over his chest. “Your boyfriend let some girl flirt with him.”

Sana raises her eyebrows, wondering if she heard that sentence right. 

“Okay. Did he flirt back?”, she asks, pressing her lips together. She glances at Yousef who looks at her with the same look she gives him, sporting a tiny smile. 

Elias shakes his head furiously. The fear of having started a fight between two of his favorite people begins to worry him. “No, no. He didn’t. Of course not.”

“Good, he could barely flirt with me before we became a couple.”, Sana says laughingly.

“Hey!”, Yousef exclaims but can’t really object.

“Wait, you’re not mad?”, Elias asks, looking back and forth between his sister and his best friend. 

Sana shakes her head. “No, why would I? If he didn’t flirt back … almost every time we went out someone started flirting with him.”

Sana and Yousef look at each other and start laughing. They’re definitely remembering something Elias was not part of. The fact that it’s so late makes them laugh even more. So Elias stands up and drags Yousef with him.

“Before you wake my parents with your laughter… we should all go to bed.”

Oh man okay so I saw someone give their trans guy Adam, trans girl Chloe headcanons which I LOVE and also wanted to share my own headcanon. So basically ever since the Sam minisodes I've pictured Sam as a trans guy. Or at least not 100 percent Girl. From the fact that she insists on being called Sam to wanting to be Mark's knight in shining armor. And the fact that she never really feels like herself because of her abilities (but what if if were MORE than her abilities you feel me???)

(cont.) Also the relief she might have felt at learning Mark was bi ahhhhh. The poem Dreaming Boy by Sarah Kay honestly really makes me think of her.

Ooh, this is an awesome headcanon! I will for sure have to look up this poem as well. 

you left a handprint on my heart (ch. 2)

“But you’ve covered everything,” Midoriya protests earnestly. “Your eyes…” And then he trails off, awkwardly, Adam’s apple bobbing as he swallows his words down.

Shōto wants to know what he was going to say. “My eyes?”

The cold air naturally condenses from heated breath, but his words imbue a different kind of warmth. “If this is comfortable for you, then that’s one matter. But you…have nice eyes, Todoroki-kun,” Midoriya mumbles.

“Looks like you’ll have to talk to me” Adam quipped looking around the empty bar.

“What’s that supposed to mean?” Esme demanded following him inside the Toadstool.

“The place is empty. You’ll have no else to talk to but me” Adam explained “you’ve been avoiding me. Did that rumor about you and Keenan upset you that much?”

His voice was gentle and Esme got the feeling that Adam cared what her response might be. “I don’t want you to think I’m the type to throw herself at married men. I’m not a home wrecker.”

“It would be pretty despicable if I believed it” Adam said giving her is best disarming grin “I know my son well enough to know he wouldn’t cheat on his wife.” He paused to give her a thoughtful look “you don’t look like a home wrecker to me.”

Pearl Shattered Pink Diamond

So after the episode The Trial, I think it’s pretty clear who actually killed Pink Diamond. The Crewniverse is all about foreshadowing. Things have been foreshadowed or hinted at or left loose ended for sometimes anywhere between 50 to over 100 episodes.

Now, the show has been dropping hints literally since the series began that Pearl might have actually been the one to do the deed. But, I think that Zircon finally puts all the pieces together that were needed to confirm that it was Pearl.


Exhibit A:

“All Gems have shapeshifting powers, Steven.” - Pearl, Cat Fingers (S1E6)

Well, that’s really interesting Pearl. Really interesting that we’ve seen Amethyst and Garnet and even Steven shapeshift, but never you. Do you have a traumatizing incident you’ve been covering up for 5,000 years that might have something to do with that?


Exhibit B

“Well, if you ever want to see a demonstration of proper sword techniques, I’d be happy to show you.“ - Pearl, Steven the Sword Fighter

We’ve known for a LONG time that Pearl is a master with swords. And what shattered Pink Diamond? A sword.

“Who cares about her shield? Her huge sword is what I remember.” - Eyeball, Bubbled

“It was a sword! You…shattered her…with a sword!” - Blue Diamond, The Trial

It’s been mentioned a few times. Now, we ASSUME that it was Rose Quartz’s giant pink sword that Steven pulled from Lion’s mane. But, nobody has ever actually described it as such that was a witness. All that has been said is that it was a (huge) sword. That would be just the kind of thing the crew would use to try to throw us off the trail. Rose Quartz isn’t even shown using a sword in The Answer, but Pearl wields two. She has been working with swords for seemingly far longer than Rose.


Exhibit C:

That’s an nice looking insignia you have on your uniform there, Pearl. Say, aren’t you heading to Homeworld? Isn’t it the proper thing to do there to show off your loyalty to your Diamond? Look at that Pink Diamond on your chest there.


Exhibit D:

“I was there. I saw it with my own eye.” - Eyeball, Back to the Moon

Now, at this VERY MOMENT that this line is stated, Eyeball is currently being duped into thinking Amethyst is Jasper, just because she shapeshifted into someone that looks like Jasper. She’s purple. Jasper is orange. Added to the baseball game the Rubies were also duped into playing, Rubies can be EASILY fooled. Even when it comes to the shapeshifting department.


Exhibit E:

Now, Pearl’s expression here could mean much the same as Garnet’s. Garnet didn’t plan for Steven to find out like this. Neither did Pearl. But is Pearl, perhaps, much more worried that Steven will find out the REAL truth of who shattered Pink Diamond? Her reaction is just so much more dramatic, like her reaction is based on a different set of feelings than Garnet’s. Maybe this one is reaching a little bit, but let’s move on.


Exhibit F:

“Does this have anything to do with Pink Diamond? I already know mom shattered her, so what is it about this that you can’t tell me?” - Steven, Steven’s Dream

“Please, you’re making Pearl very upset.” - Garnet, Steven’s Dream

Why would Pearl be so upset about Pink Diamond’s palanquin? Or about Pink Diamond being shattered? Sure, it was an awful event. But it was helpful to the rebels. And Rose Quartz did it, anyway, so why would Pearl have reason to feel bad or be overly upset about? I mean, it could be because she used to belong to Pink Diamond and betrayed her and shattered her, but you know, that’s just a theory.

But you know, it would be really bad if Steven and the other Crystal Gems found out that not only did Pearl lie to them, but Rose Quartz as well. By the way Steven, your mom wasn’t quite as horrible as you were told. By the way, that gem you’ve been looking up to as the most mom like is the real shatterer.


Exhibit G:

“Because at the time that Pink was shattered, Rose Quartz had been a recognized threat for several hundred years. There were no Rose Quartz soldiers in her entourage and none in her guard. So how did a Rose Quartz, with no business being anywhere near Pink Diamond, get so close to her in the first place? Where were Pink Diamond’s attendants, Her Agates, Her Sapphires? And where was her Pearl?- Zircon, The Trial

It seems VERY significant that the crew would have that question be at the very end of Zircon’s line. Almost like they were trying to make it stand out on purpose.

But, much much more than that, Zircon stated that Pink Diamond had Sapphires on her court. Those who could see the future. Who would be looking into it for when and where Rose Quartz would strike next. Their focus would be on her. Their focus would be on looking towards outside threats to their Diamond.

Where would their focus not be? On the most trusted member of Pink Diamond’s court. The gem who was closer to her than any other gem, even a Diamond. Her Pearl.

Why would Homeworld even consider that a Pearl could think for herself? That a Pearl had the ability to shapeshift? They wouldn’t know. And when the dust settled and all that remained was a shocked Pearl and no Rose Quartz… who would be called as the MAIN witness to the crime? The gem who would have been RIGHT be her side during the whole ordeal. Her Pearl. A gem known to be able to holographicly replay and recreate events. Someone who was already a record keeper.


Exhibit H:

“Even if she did, wouldn’t her Pearl have cried out in her alarm, “Watch out, My Diamond!"” - Zircon, The Trial

Zircon is absolutely correct. Why would her Pearl have not been able to warn her? Even if all her guards and all her future seeking Sapphires somehow missed all of Rose Quartz’s planning and her sneaking up on them, why would the gem closest to her not give out any warning? But the line goes on to provide far more evidence.

“No, whoever did this was already close to Pink Diamond. Someone her guards would allow to get near her, someone she would listen to when asked to stop her palanquin, and step outside, and someone with the authority to cover it up afterward!” - Zircon, The Trial

The only thing Zircon got wrong was the part about authority. A Pearl would have been a record keeper. Able to, as previously stated, replay the event of Pink Diamond being shattered in its entirety, from her own point of view. Able to muddle the details of the event, seeming as if she was watching it all happen in shocked horror, while quickly committing the crime herself, instead. Someone the Diamonds would have trusted to be truthful, because why would she lie about the oh so tragic death of her Diamond?

All eyes would have been on Rose Quartz. Nobody would have been paying attention to her Pearl. Nobody would ever pay attention to a simple Pearl. They are, after all, just Pearls.

Yet, who would have been closer but the Pearl traveling WITH her INSIDE her palanquin? Who might have suggested they stop, and who might Pink Diamond have listened to? Who would the Sapphires never have their future vision turned towards? And who could have flubbed the story to cover it up after?


Exhibit I:

“I want to hear what she has to say.” - Blue Diamond, The Trial

“How? How did you do it?” - Blue Diamond, The Trial

“How did you shatter Pink Diamond?” - Blue Diamond, The Trial

“But the question no one seems to be asking is, "how?"” - Zircon, The Trial

"I’ve been asking that question.” - Blue Diamond, The Trial

THIS is why Blue Diamond is so adamant about knowing HOW Rose Quartz did it. Being able to slip past future vision and slip past guards was not built into the genetic make up of the Rose Quartz gems. How, then, did Rose come to possess such powers?! That is what is driving Blue Diamond crazy. But you know what? Rose Quartz didn’t possess those powers. Because Rose Quartz didn’t do it. Homeworld, the Diamonds, and even all the rebel forces on Rose Quartz’s side, were only meant to believe that she did.


Finally:

Consider that we know NOTHING of Pearl’s backstory. NOTHING. We do not know who owned her on Homeworld. We do not know when she rebelled.

We’ve gotten origin stories for Garnet and Amethyst, but Pearl remains shrouded in mystery despite us being 132 episodes into the series.

Why would it be such a secret if it wasn’t a big deal? Her backstory has remained scarce, been dodged around, and avoided. Something very important to the series is hidden in her backstory, in her history. Something that I think is going to be revealed very soon.

**more than friends: an index**
  • A Socratic relationship, in which you ask a lot of really difficult questions of the other person until they get annoyed and want to poison you. (I have a lot of those.)

  • A Hegelian relationship, in which the two parties disagree about everything but eventually achieve a synthesis. (Come to think of it, I have a lot of those, too.)

  • An Aristotalean relationship, characterized by an extreme interest in what category of relationship this is.

  • A Cartesian relationship, characterized by doubts about whether there’s really a relationship going on.
    A more extreme version of this is the Berkeleyan relationship, characterized by an adamant insistence that there is no relationship going on at all. Both of these can in time evolve into a Wittgensteinian relationship, in which the participants acknowledge that whether there’s a “real relationship” is an ill-defined question that depends more on the structure of their language than on the reality of the relationship.

  • An Aquinian relationship, that acknowledges that an exploration of the nature of the relationship is likely to strengthen rather than weaken it.

  • A Hobbesian relationship – solitary, poor, nasty, brutish, and short. (Sorry, I couldn’t resist.)

  • A Kantian relationship, in which you can morally do anything that it’s OK for everyone else in the relationship to do.

  • A Rousseaian relationship, characterized by the natural behavior of man in the wild, away from civilization.

  • A Nietzchian relationship, where both parties focus primarily on the will to power.

  • A Randian relationship, in which both parties act exclusively in their own self-interest.

  • A Heraclitean relationship, which you may as well not categorize since it’s not only different from all other relationships, it isn’t the same from one moment to the next. (You might think you’ve been in one just like that, but you’re wrong.) 

  • A Stoic relationship, which is also unique, but anyway it’s no better nor
    worse than any other. 

  • An Epicurean relationship, which theoretically isn’t very different from a Stoic one, but sounds like a lot more fun. 
  • A Humean relationship, in which what you see is what you get.

  • A Hillelistic relationship, which is platonic (in the vulgar sense) because nobody will do anything to anybody that they don’t want done back to themselves.

  • A Christian relationship, which soon degenerates into a platonic relationship because both parties are doing what they do want done back to themselves, instead of what the other party wants done to them.

  • A Marxist relationship, where each party gives according to – I’ll stop right there, it’s too obvious. Clearly *that* one is doesn’t become platonic. Let’s hear it for Materialism.

I have some opinions/thoughts that I’d really love to get off my chest even if other people think I’m completely wrong.

Gaston did not deserve to die, Gaston was hardly a bad person, Gaston was basically forced into being the villian of this story.

[I’m referring to the 2017 remake of BATB rather than the original animation.]

Let’s point out some difference between the 1991 Gaston and 2017 Gaston
-2017 Gaston was not a misogynist
-did not abuse Lefou
-even verbally
-Like for fucksakes, the friendship between Lefou and Gaston was so genuine. I’m frequently seeing these things around Gafou is an abusive ship, buts it’s really not? He tells Lefou ‘thank you’ says ‘you’re the best Lefou’ sincerely asks ‘how has no woman snatched you up?’, messes around with Lefou like buds (wrestling bite marks, picking him up to demonstrate strength, gets on the table and dances with him), let’s Lefou calm him down and boop his nose, and not once does he insult or hurt even when it seemed like he would (after Lefou wrapped his arms around him, or when he couldn’t spell his name, when he said ‘who needs her when you’ve got us’, etc). They’re sincerely good, close friends, but don’t worry I’m not ignoring all the shitty things Gaston did to Lefou I will get to that in a second.
-I said he’s not a misogynist, right? Cause that’s important. Big step away from the OG.
-Doesn’t insult Belle for reading
-Instead he feigns interest in the book because he knows it’s her interest
-even brings her flowers, whataguy
-Has manners (“excuse me, please let me through” going through the crowd, didn’t push everyone out of his way)
-Goes to her rescue when the town’s people are being mean (sure this is because he wanted to be the hero to seduce her, but seriously he was one of the few people who didn’t harass or bully Belle for being different)
-Doesn’t call Maurice crazy and instead offers his help to soothe the men (again, seduction, but seriously he’s still being polite and helping the underdog unlike the OG)

I’ll probably think of more things to add to this Gaston-wasnt-an-asshole list but I think this basically gets the point across that, well, Gaston wasn’t an asshole. He was immensely vain, yes, but that doesn’t mean he was a bad person.
Cus ya know who else started out incredibly vain but still managed to be the fucking prince in this story?
Yep, the Beast/Adam of course.

Time to do some comparing of the prince and the villian because spoiler alert, they basically parallel each other.

I’ll begin this part with Belle’s comment of, “No one can change THAT much, Gaston”
Ahem

LITERALLY SHUT THE FUCK UP ARE YOU SERIOUS
This line pissed me off immensely, because that’s literally Adam’s entire character arc, changing himself completely, literally and figuratively.

Like I’m sorry you wanna do a repeat of the song “Something there” aka the song where the lyrics are basically “he was an asshole brute who I hated but now he’s c h a n g e d”
Literally so pissed off at that all.

But as I was saying, Gaston basically mirrors Adam’s arc, meaning to say they’re practically the same character things going on but sorta reversed.

Like okay
-Upon first meeting Belle, the Beast locks her father then her in a tower and is a huge dick but then they bond over books and he gives her flowers and he’s nice to her.
-Upon first interacting with Belle, Gaston is nice to her, gives her flowers, tries to bond over books, but then he’s a huge dick and locks her father and then her in a cart.

Do you see what I did there? Literally the same actions, but backwards.

Let’s do some more comparing.
-They both have terrible, terrible tempers.
But you know what? The Beasts is definitely a lot worse than Gaston’s.

Let’s review how both Gaston and Adam dealt with Belle’s dinner rejection
-Beast: literally motherfucking demands she has dinner with him, bangs his paws on the door, scrEAMS at her, and then announces she can starve if she won’t eat with him
-Gaston: [not direct quotes, can’t remember exact words but basically what he says] “oh, busy?” nope “okay, then some other time?” boom that’s that. Yeah he still is persistent on winning her over even after this rejection but the man handled it a lot better then Adam (and he brought flowers for her dinner table).

I’m about to move on from Adam and start talking about how Gaston treated Lefou in a sec, but I would just really really really like to put some emphasis on the fact that both Adam and Gaston were incredibly narcissistic men. The amount of self pride and conceded they have is in the beginning is completely parallel and it leads to both of their unfortunate fates. The point in this, is Gaston is not a bad guy just because he loves himself a bit much, just as the Beast was not a bad guy for loving himself too much. Like, the way Adam turns down Agatha for being ugly seems exactly like something Gaston would do, so why does the movie end with Gaston dying while the Beast learns his lesson and gets his happily ever after?
Because, the OG Gaston was truly an asshole who deserved to die and this 2017 remake of course had to stay true to the story. Even though this Gaston really wasn’t a true villian and didn’t deserve to die – rather he deserves a redemption arc just as Adam was given – he died anyway because that’s how the story goes.

Anyway, I’ll get on with this and bring back Lefou.

Some of you have probably been reading this while thinking “But Marley [das my name], Gaston was a shitty person, he wasn’t a good friend to Lefou at all because he manipulated him, let him get punched in the face, didn’t protect him at all, and threatened to lock him up. Plus, he was only into Belle because she’s pretty.”

Alright alright alright: Lefou.
He’s an exceedingly important character as he gives us insight to Gaston’s character.
Two crucial things he reveals about Gaston … .

-Gaston has anger issues. My father has anger issues, and so do I, and we both are on meds for it. Let me say, having anger management problems and getting angry are very different things. It’s just like he having anxiety and getting nervous are very different things. I think most of you can probably relate or understand anxiety more then anger issues, so just put yourself in Gaston’s shoes with that in mind. Anyway, back to Lefou. He shows us that Gaston has anger issues when he rushes to Gaston’s aid by saying “deep breathes” and then “think about the war”. He tells us that Gaston has coping mechanisms for when he gets like this. Does it matter if Gaston has anger problems? Does it make him less of a dick? Like, seriously Marley, does this information really make up for any of the things he did? Yes, yes it does matter. It’s like when you/someone your love is having an anxiety attack, or when you fall into a depressive episode, or when a loved one acts out of PTSD [which Gaston could totally completely have], or when someone with schizophrenia or delusions starts having episodes, it’s basically exactly like whenever anyone’s mental illness starts to act up. You don’t feel like yourself and you don’t so things you would normally​ do. This is definitely the case for Gaston; he acts out of character when he gets angry like this. And that’s my second point that Lefou proves in this movie.

-Gaston is not being himself when he starts doing all that terrible shit that leads him to his demise. Lefou makes it fairly obvious that that is not how Gaston usually acts. He does this in numerous ways which I will quickly try to summarize and go through:
1) Questions Gaston. Obviously if Gaston often tied up old men to trees or in general left people to die, Lefou would have just went with it instead of going “are you sure?”
2) doesn’t immediately lie to save Gaston’s ass. Again, if Gaston frequently had Lefou lie for him, then it would have came to Lefou like second nature and he wouldn’t have hesitated.
3) Once more, questioning Gaston. The scene I’m about to refer to is when Gaston locks Belle and her father in the carriage. Lefou grabs Gaston’s arm and goes to question him again, but before he can Gaston threatens to lock him up as well. Dick move on Gastons end, no? But this isn’t something he would normally do or say to Lefou, for if it was Lefou wouldn’t have bothered speaking up because he would have known what Gaston’s reaction would be. Instead, Lefou is used to being able to talk sense into Gaston and reason with him (refer back to nose boop scene).
4) Running to Gaston’s side for protection during the fight [castle scene]. Lefou is probably used to having Gaston protect him during fights (war time) and obviously didn’t expect Gaston to throw him to the enemy. Like, yous guys heard him shriek Gaston’s name before the piano fell on him, right? He was obviously expecting Gaston to rescue him. Even after he’s trapped under the piano, he still reaches and calls out for Gaston. The way Gaston is acting is not the Gaston he knows.
5?) “I was on Gaston’s side, but we are so in a bad place right now” [however he says it you know the line I’m referring to]. Aight I think this is the one line that really captures the point I’m trying to make. Lefou has switched sides because Gaston is being a major douchebag and Lefou’s not having it. Lefou doesn’t put up with being treated like shit [MrsPotts saying he deserves better and Lefou agreeing]. So o b v i o u s l y Lefou is not used to Gaston being so cruel and angry. If Gaston treated Lefou like this all the time, then Lefou wouldn’t be by his side [because he left his side once he started acting like this]. Lefou knows how he should be treated, and how he’s being treated is not what he’s used to.
You dig what I’m saying? I’m kinda rushing through these points because I’m getting tired of this.

*deep breathe* Alright, last point, as I mentioned above, ‘Gaston only wanted Belle because she was beautiful’ Alright alright alright I’m not even going to talk about the Gaston in this point, I’m just going to talk about the huge flaw that is Beauty and the Beast.

Adam is turned into the Beast because he needs to learn to not judge people by how they look, he needs to learn that it’s what’s on the inside that matters.
Right.
So why is Belle the one that learns this lesson?
Adam falls in love with a gorgeous girl, meanwhile Belle falls in love with a hideous monster who turns into a nice dude on the inside.
Belle is the character who learned to not judge a book by its cover [cover being a monsterous beast but inside he is a gorgeous prince].
As soon as Belle walked into the castle, all the furniture was like “yooooo she could be the one, master hit her up” and instantly Adam’s like “well I need a girl to fall in love with to break my curse and she cute yeah let’s do it”. Like of course there’s more to our then this, but what I’m trying to say is Adam had already planned to try to charm Belle before he knew what kind of person he was because he was desperate to break the curse.
So he and everyone in the castle just saw her and was like “she was a girl, he was a boy, can I make it anymore obvious?”
So anyway anyway anyway, Gaston was only interested in Belle because she was beautiful and he wanted a wife, but Beast was only interested in Belle because she was beautiful and could break the spell. See the parallels again? Like, Beast later fell in love with Belle for who she was and she made him a better person, Gaston could have totally done the same thing.
And okay, there’s no proof Beast cared that Belle was beautiful or not, but yo, Disney definitely should have made Belle ugly af so when Adam met her the snob in him would have been “ew she’s ugly, next” and then Lumiere and Mrs. Potts woulda been like “boi Imma whoop yo ass if you don’t give that girl a try, I don’t care how fucked up her teeth are smfh” and then Adam would have learned the lesson that the enchantress was trying to school him about in the first place [this applies to the 1991 animated film, not directly at the 2017 btw]

Well I was trying to keep this professional and moreso eloquently written but you can tell I’m coming out of my cage and I’ve been doing just fine gotta gotta be down because I want it all

Okay okay okay
Okay okay
Okay

I believe we’re nearing the end. I believe I’ve said all I needed to say made all the points I could [honestly definitely not because I’m constantly thinking about this and arguing with no one in my head, I have a lot to say and later I’ll be making toast and be like “anD ONE MORE THING”]

I’m very upset Gaston died because he wasn’t a terrible enough character to deserve death.

So Dear Disney, either make Gaston more of a shitty person, or bring him back to life. I’ll be waiting for an apology letter until this is done.

Of course I’m kidding.

I just have such a love and passion for Gaston and I’m truly sick of hearing people tell me that Gafou is an abusive ship and Gaston is a villian.

And if you refuse to see that Gaston wasn’t a bad guy but still believe that Adam is such a prince than you’re insanely hypocritical.

People just see what they want to see.

Also I’m terribly sorry for making this so diddly damn long, I honestly have no idea how to do the cutoff “Show more” thing, I’m on mobile. So sorry if you’re trying to rapidly scroll past all of this and it’s taking forever.

But honestly fuck you don’t scroll past my argument.

And also if you legit read all this then motherfucking congratulations to you. Like I don’t even want to read all of this shit to edit it.

Thanks for the attention. Marley OUTT

Summary: Loving Kim Taehyung was just so cruel, since he only saw you as his childhood friend. But after years of wanting him to return your affection, you finally saw the look of love shine on his eyes - but it wasn’t meant for you. No, it was meant for her…
Pairing: Taehyung x Reader
Genre: Smut, Angst, bestfriend!au, university!au
Word Count: 4.5k
A/N: Original request here . 


Loving Kim Taehyung was like treasuring a forbidden artifact – you could appreciate it and love it from afar, but you could never touch it, never have it – just stand still and admire from a distance. Just like the artifact, he was untouchable and you could never have him the way you always wished for. Why? Well that was because he was your best friend since you were toddlers, but that was it.

You two were inseparable. Always playing and working together, making your classmates assume that you two liked each other. Of course, every time that accusation was made, you’d both deny it while saying how gross it was – but even then you knew you were lying.

At the mere age of 14, you realized that you didn’t just have a silly little crush on him anymore, no, you had fallen deeply in love with him. But who didn’t? His affectious boxy smile and playful bright attitude attracted many people towards him over the years, much to your dismay. But Taehyung always brushed it aside, and kept his attention solely on you. That is, once you two entered high school, then it all changed for the worse.

Just some fic recs...

I’ve read a lot of really good fic this year and I just thought the best of the best deserved some recognition.  I tried to weed out the super popular fics, but some still show up because I love them that much.  Also, the ships are numerous and varied.

Running on Air–eleventy7; Drarry
Draco Malfoy has been missing for three years. Harry is assigned the cold case and finds himself slowly falling in love with the memories he collects.
*I would murder people to protect this fic.  It’s beautifully written, well-plotted, original, and it reuses certain sentences, making them more poignant the later in the story they’re used.  Like, fuck me up*

the ghost of you–kissmesexybatman; Klance
When Keith goes missing without a trace, all his family and friends are able to do is move on with their lives. When he shows back up after a year, they have to convince him they still want him back.
*I may be slightly biased because the coolest person in the world wrote this, but let me tell you, it’s emotionally heartwrenching, wonderfully written, and gives you a happy ending without sacrificing the needs of the characters*

My soul is an empty carousel at sunset.–dawnstruck; Otayuri
Yuri grows up and grows older and grows into himself. Otabek helps. It just takes a while to get there.
*I’m demi and this fic described exactly what that experience has been like for me, as it features a demi!Yuri.  Beyond that, it was sweet and genuine and I adored it*
