it even goes in order

One of my favourite things about Rosie is how every rat in the cage seems to feel safe with her, even old Hetty lets Rose snuggle in her basket. She loves to mother everybody, and if anyone is sick or sulking after losing a scuffle, Rosie is the one to come give them a cuddle.

Imagine Your OTP

Imagine your OTP acting like a married couple.

They know each other’s coffee orders, and often pick up coffee for each other.

If one says something rude or out of line, the other one gives them a warning glare.

The one who never gets cold always brings a jacket, because the one who always gets cold always forgets one.

They always sit next to each other, without even discussing it.

Whenever the group goes out to eat, they can always order for the other if one is running late.

The more organized one reminds the less organized one of appointments.

Whenever someone wants to know where one is, they ask the other.

One day, someone sees them interacting, and asks how long they’ve been married.

They’re very confused, because they definitely aren’t even dating.

What happens next is up to you.

Saiko’s character arc hitting it’s climax

One of the major things from this chapter is Saiko’s reaction to Urie framing out, and how she wants to save him. However this act of saving him is going against the CCG orders, as they were told to exterminate Haise if he goes berserk as well as each other.

So far there have been two characters that have said that Urie won’t be able to come back from this and that is Urie himself, and Shao.

Shao even before that tells Saiko that they can’t and shouldn’t try to save him, yet Saiko gives the order to try even though that goes against CCG protocol, and something that she has been told is the right choice. Which coincides with the advice that Amon gave her about as long as she questions whether she is right or not in her decisions.

However this choice will have a lot of repercussions as Urie will no longer will be a quinx but a full ghoul. The CCG might not take him back over that, and do to Matsuri’s obsession with him might cause the conflict in the CCG to raise. However, Saiko will also have to deal with the fact that she didn’t kill Urie like she was supposed to. I wonder if these two things would cause the both Urie and Saiko to go rouge after this. Either way this is the first big defiance that Saiko has shown to the CCG which is a major piece of character development.

Steve has his life in order, okay. He goes to wizard college, even if he can’t technically do magic. He has his own apartment, even though it’s small and dinky and kind of gross, and forgets to exist sometimes, and might also be alive? Plus, he has a crush on the hot cyborg in unit 404 who cooks fiendishly good breakfast foods, and may or may not have some kind of weird connection to the sentient building they live in. He’s not sure.

He’s dealing, all right, his life is in tip-top condition, or it was until an eldritch monstrosity called the Hydra started posing as a real estate company to try and buy over his new home.

He’s really pissed about that.

some things people should consider incorporating into mchanzo fic, from someone who grew up in a family where japanese & american culture often clashed:

•hanzo going over to mccree’s place, maybe to meet his family or something. everyone is wearing their shoes inside the house. why the fuck is everyone wearing their shoes inside the house? disgusting

•hanzo going to america and wanting to eat as MUCH steak as possible whenever possible. mccree suggests getting some sushi but hanzo vetoes the idea. he orders steak no matter where he goes, even for breakfast. (beef is super cheap in america compared to japan because we have such a large supply of it here. when my dad’s old buddies from japan visit, they literally always request steak, without exception)

•Americans talk waaay too loudly for hanzo and socializing for long periods of time gives him a headache. they’re mostly friendly, just really loud. and way too touchy-feely. like no, hugging is not an acceptable form of greeting.

•green tea packets are everywhere–hanzo drinks green tea all the time. when he travels places overnight, he takes his tea brewing equipment with him, even to hotels. he refuses to purchase bottled tea; he has to make it himself, or he doesn’t trust it.

•idk if this is true across the board, but the japanese side of my family always refuses to kill household pests. they always catch & release things instead of killing them: spiders, moths, bees, even ants. hanzo is the same way. he gets super angry when mccree squishes an ant, and at first he thinks he’s joking, but he is dead fucking pissed that mccree killed that ant

•natto spread over toast for breakfast. hanzo thinks this is a normal staple meal for people across the globe until he makes it for mccree, who pretends to like it but is actually repulsed. (natto is made of fermented soybeans, smells terrible, but tastes pretty okay if you grow up eating it. it’s definitely an acquired taste)

•a lot of japanese candies have wrappers made of rice paper, so they’re edible. mccree is astonished when hanzo eats a butterscotch candy, plastic wrapping and all, and starts to choke. also, fish flavored candy is pretty common there, much to mccree’s horror. and don’t even get him started on the jumbo 12-inch shrimp flavored crackers hanzo likes so much

•japanese portion sizes are really small compared to american ones. my obasan used to scold me because I would always have 3 or 4 helpings of the food she cooked. hanzo probably scolds mccree too, and has to start cooking more food on the regular because his bf eats so damn much.

•soooo many japanese superstitions. mccree sticks his chopsticks vertically into his rice, only to be lectured by hanzo for inviting the gods of death into his house. hanzo gets shat on by a bird and is surprisingly chill about it because, hey, it’s good luck. another time, hanzo insists mccree shifts his bed around so his head isn’t facing north, just to be safe.

•hanzo always drinks hot water instead of cold water, probably to simulate the experience of drinking green tea when he has no green tea to drink

•hanzo has pictures/statues of buddha all over the place, despite having grown up practicing shinto (this is something my dad does, the only explanation I can think of is that it’s like the japanese version of elf on the shelf. buddha is always watching, so don’t misbehave. mccree catches on and always turns the buddha figures around before engaging in sexy times w/ his bf)

•shamisen music is the only acceptable music. absolutely no country music is allowed

•hanzo is horrified to learn that mccree doesn’t even own a rice cooker. how does he not not own a rice cooker? what does he eat, does he just starve? he doesn’t even have the little frozen rice squares in his freezer. pathetic

Robbie the Zombie Headcanon

He’s on the autism spectrum.

  • sensitive to very loud noises; if extremely over-stimulated he has a meltdown and becomes non-verbal
  • chase brody (and also warfstache and anti) will help him calm down during these episodes
  • loves the feel of things with soft/fluffy/feathery textures 
  • flower crowns, stuffed toys, fluffy pillows and clothes with fur/feathers on them are heaven for him
  • he can and does spend hours just lumbering  through clothing shops, running his hands along the clothes on the racks, moaning softly at all the beautiful sensations
  • Marvin takes great joy in conjuring up massive stuffed toys for Robbie (partly because it helps him practice his magic)
  • stims by flapping/chewing the sleeves of his shirt (he used to chew on his hands but Schneeplestein managed to persuade him to stop so he didn’t hurt himself)
  • exhibits echolalia
  • doesn’t possess the greatest motor skills, hence most of his bruises and scratches
  • always goes to Schneeplestein some time in the evenings (usually after dinner) in order to anaesthetize his wounds so he can sleep properly 
  • because while it’s pretty much numb most of the time, the pain can return in full swing after a long hard couple days of dealing with Anti/the other egos/just other people in general, really
  • failure to be anaesthetized after three days in a row leaves him agitated, unable to sleep, and in medium physical pain; at this point Jackieboy Man may need to restrain him in order to protect Robbie from hurting the others or injuring himself further

Tag time! Forgive me if you’re uninterested.





Can someone write an AU where Trini goes to Krispy Kreme with Zack one day and spots this gorgeous cashier (Kim ofc) so after that day Trini goes there daily and orders a donut even tho she hates them (I know she doesn’t but let’s pretend) just so she could see her and eventually find the courage to ask her out?

anonymous asked:

Haven't heard from the naturalwings verse in a while... what is obiwans duty to the galaxy now? What is he supposed to do? Before that, does he recover all right?

First course of action for Obi-Wan was to get healthy and in fighting form. Which wasn’t as easy with Vader hovering around. It seemed Obi-Wan’s heart attack had almost given the Sith one and he had possessively latched onto him once again and refused any summons by his Master for weeks, staying beside Obi-Wan.

It wasn’t to say that Vader had land locked him but he was quicker to demand Obi-Wan land and sit down, eat.

His diet had been changed to prevent further heart attacks and Vader no longer complained about Obi-Wan settling into meditations, seeing as how it would keep Obi-Wan calm and still his systems.

Apparently a medic had spoken to him about what kinds of things Obi-Wan should and should not do.

Had he been only under the eyes of clones, then he could have practiced lightsaber forms and katas. As it was he only dared to do the slower kata forms and to fly as hard and as fast and as long as he dared.

He didn’t need the other man suspicious.

No, Obi-Wan was going to do his duty to the galaxy.

And no Sith was going to stop him.

His duty was clear.

Rebuild the order, if so on the very edge of the civilized galaxy, away from the Empire.

And destroy the new Sith Empire.

That did include Vader and that sometimes caused pain to latch through his frame but the boy he had trained was truly gone and Obi-Wan couldn’t bring someone back when they were so lost. Sometimes he saw glimpses of Anakin in the concern the other showed but then came the anger and rage, yellow eyes shining and the sensation went away.

“Obi-Wan?” He shifted to look at the other, raising his brows slowly at Vader.


“Aren’t you going to eat?” The other glanced at the plate in front of the redhead. “I can find something else for you if its not to your liking.”

Obi-Wan glanced down at his plate and gave a low hum. “No, this is fine.” He started to dig into the salad, knowing there was both protein cubes and beans added to it to make sure he ate both calories and proteins.

‘At least the steak is well seasoned if lacking in fats.’ He thought to himself.

He barely avoided flinching when a hand brushed his cheek, cupping it to caress gently. He glanced up quickly at Vader, blinking at him as the other examined him steadily. “At least you’re not as pale anymore. That’s good.” He breathed out, smiling a bit.

For a moment he looked like the boy Obi-Wan had trained, the boy who had nightmares and was embarrassed to ask to sleep in Obi-Wan’s bed. The boy who hadn’t destroyed the Order and everyone Obi-Wan had loved.

He brushed the hand off his face and looked away.

“Obi-Wan?” The voice was tinged with confusion and not a little anger.

Nothing unusual there really.

“You want me to treat you as if you’re still Anakin-”

“I am still Anakin!”

“No. You gave up that right when you marched on the temple. You became Vader and you killed Padme.” Obi-Wan sighed quietly, rubbing his chest absently. “I don’t know what you want from me here. I’m a prisoner, I’ve almost given up, I almost died because I had a heart attack of all things…” He shook his head slightly.

He finally looked at the other, taking in the yellow eyes narrowed in anger and displeasure and the clenching hands on the table. “I look at you and I can’t see the boy I trained. How soon is it to you snap again and murder me this time? Will you choke me to death or just snap my neck? Or will you hand me over to your sith Master Lord Vader?”

“Don’t test my patience Obi-Wan, I don’t want to hurt you bu-”

“But what?” Obi-Wan spread his arms. “Did you think I’d be grateful for this? For living like a captured royalty? You need to decide what you want to do with me, because I will not continue like this, I will do what I need to do Vader.”

The Siths hands were closed into tight fists and Obi-Wan saw the other struggle not to strangle him. He was so close to it.

“And what is that?” The man hissed while standing.

Obi-Wan stared back at him, still sitting with his wings rustling against his back. “I will fight. I lost sight of my duty but I am still a Jedi. You can’t remove that out of me. I was a Jedi before I meet Anakin Skywalker. I continued to be a Jedi when Anakin Skywalker died on Mustafar. Because Anakin Skywalker would never have marched on our home, would never have killed younglings and never harmed a hair on Padme’s head…ever.” Obi-Wan sat back calmly to await his fate.

Vader gave a low hissing sound and then the chair went flying back as he shoved it and stomped his way out of the dining room, the Force a miasma of chaos around him.

“…Its not wise to antagonize Lord Vader Master Kenobi.” One of the guards offered.

“I am quite aware of that Cody.” Obi-Wan went back to eating, bowing his head back over his meal.

There was a quiet source of shock in the Force before a shiny stepped forward and removed the helmet to the all to familiar face of Commander Cody. “You…knew it was me?”

“I’m a prisoner, not Force blind.” Obi-Wan drawled quietly. “I knew every time you were close to me the last month. Armor doesn’t change the person inside it.”


There was an awkward silence. At least on Cody’s side as he glanced about the room, unsure what to say.

“So, is the implant still keeping you from feeling guilt?” Obi-Wan sat back, looking at the man he once trusted his life to. He would admit, it did absolve the clones a bit of what happened…but it also meant that Obi-Wan could not trust them unless they were de-chipped.

“Good soldiers follow orders.”

“Yes…I’ve heard that.” Obi-Wan stood, pushing back the chair. “If you’d excuse me, I’m going for an evening flight. I like it when the sun goes down. Also, did my order go through?”

“Yes, the dye supplies are waiting in your room.”

Obi-Wan’s wings gave a little rustle at that before he nodded and headed for the doors. He took flight as the sun sunk, the rays shining through his feathers.

12 Years (Sirius Black x Female!Reader)

A/N: So sorry that this took so long and I changed the ask a little bit. I hope it’s ok. This is my first time writing for adult!Sirius.

Word Count: 904

Warnings: One nearly swear because I’m such a rebel.

Requested: yes ( @dygalome  ) 

Oh oh I suck at writing, but I may have an idea that may interest you. Still in the soulmate AU thing. What if you stop aging when you’re 18 until you meet your soulmate, but you realized that you never stop aging only after that Sirius is sent to Azkaban? It’s okay if you don’t want to do it, I just suddenly got the idea while I was writing to you

AU: When you reach the age of 18 you stop ageing until you meet your soulmate.

Blurb: You and Sirius were best friends when you were younger. But that was before he murdered James and Lily Potter in cold blood. Now he’s been in Azkaban for 12 years but you still haven’t found your soulmate. What happens when you meet again?

“Morning Remus,” you chirped walking into the kitchen.

“Morning (Y/N)” he replied solemnly. “I’m leaving today.”

“Crap. That’s today?” you facepalmed. “I totally forgot,” you said apologetically.

“You’ll be ok by yourself won’t you?” he asked. 

Typical Remus. Always worried.

“Yeah. Why wouldn’t I be?”

“It’s just that it’s been nearly 12 years since-”

“Please don’t!” you interrupted, looking down. This is not what you wanted to talk about first thing in the morning. 

“I’ll drive you to the train station,” you offered.


It had been half way through your first year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. You had gone there like your parents. And their parents before them.

“Oi! You! Chuck us our ball back” someone yelled.

You turned around to see a group of Gryffindor boys waiting expectantly.

You threw the ball at them. A boy with black, shoulder length hair and a cheeky smirk caught it. 

“Cheers love!”

Well, he was gorgeous.

12 years. And it was his fault. How could he? They were his friends.

Beautiful Lily with her hair like flames dancing in the wind.

And James with his playful grin.

He ruined it. Anyway, it was all over now. He’s been locked away for 12 years why should you think about it now?

“Can you help me find her though?” he pleaded. “I’ll help you.”

“I said no!” you said sternly. “You need to find her yourself.”

“Ok, but does that mean you’ve found your soulmate already?”

“Of course not. If I did would be the first to know,” you replied.

“Honestly don’t know if I'll ever find my soulmate. I’ll be 18 forever.” he huffed. “Wouldn’t that be great?”

“Yeah. Fantastic,” you said sarcastically, rolling your eyes.

You wondered if he ever did find the one. Maybe she’s in a cell next to him. Criminals together. 

A part of you wished he didn’t. Because then you’d lose your best friend. 

But he was gone anyway so what did it matter.

You were alone and soulmate-less.

“We need yo move in together though.” you whined.

“Nah! I’ll go live wth Remus or something instead.” Sirius joked.

“But you promised…” you complained.

“Guess I’m stuck with you then.” he rolled his eyes.


You both burst into laughter.

You stirred your tea again. Adding another spoonful of sugar. How many was that now?

Why? Why were you still 18? 

Remus had Tonks. Lily had James. Who did you have?


Even Sirius Black, the heartless and cold blooded killer, probably had his murderer soulmate.

“Remus found his soulmate!” you yelled, bursting in through the door of you and Sirius’ shared flat.

“Who?” he said, sitting up.

“New girl at the Order,” you explained. “Goes by Tonks.”

“Even our nerdy Moony found his soulmate before us?”

You nodded.

“We’re doomed.”

“Yep.” you agreed. “Now go make me a cuppa please?”

“Lazy.” he said, heading to the kitchen.

If what the Order told you was true little Harry didn’t turn out too bad. Considering.

His whole family was murdered by a man they trusted. 

But Harry didn’t know Sirius Black. You did though.

You burst in through the door.

“Step away from him.” you whispered, pointing your wand at the two hugging men.

“No (Y/N) it’s-”

“I said step away, Remus!” you said, louder this time.

Remus took a step back towards Harry, Hermione and Ron. Oh. Look at Harry. He’d grow a lot in the past few years.

But there was a more pressing matter to deal with now. Sirius Black. The crazed man stood in front of you.

“What did you do? Why Sirius?” Tears streamed down your cheeks.

“(Y/N)” he said softly. The same way that he used to.

He took a step forward.

“No! Stay right there!” You pressed your wand into the side of his neck. “One more step and I’ll kill you right where you’re stood.”

“I’m sorry (Y/N) but I didn’t do it.”

“What do you mean? Yes, you did. You killed James and Lily Potter. They died because of you.”

“No. They died because of him.” Sirius pointed towards the children. This was mental.

“Who? Me?” asked Ron, obviously confused.

“Ron couldn’t-” started Hermione.

“No! Not the kid!” said Sirius desperately. “The rat!”

“What do you mean the rat?” You were confused.

“Scabbers? How could he kill someone?”

“Because he’s not a rat. Are you, Peter?”

“Wait! Peter as in-” you were about to ask.

“Peter Pettigrew?”

How on earth did Harry know that name?

In that moment the rat bit Ron and scurried away.

Someone hit it- him- with a spell and he started morphing back into none other than Petter Pettigrew.

“So you didn’t kill them?” you asked for the fourth time.

“No (Y/N). I could never do that to Lily and James,” he explained again, holding your hands gently. 

“So you didn’t find her?” you said gesturing to his face.

“No,” he shook his head.

“I’m sorry.” you whispered.

“I’m not.” You looked up questioningly. He smiled at you. “I’m with her now and that’s good enough for me.”


“You’re my soulmate (Y/N).”

“Oh,” you said. “And here I was thinking I could stay 18 forever. Take over the world. That type of thing.”

“Sorry for crushing your dreams love.”

“I’m not. I have the best soulmate ever,” you said throwing your arms around his neck. “Come back home with me?” you begged. “Please.”

“Of course.”

Harry Potter Universe:









Murphy’s law → Anything that can go wrong will go wrong.

Now let’s apply this to my theory:

Suppose Jin is a time-hopper. This is a commonly accepted theory, which was only solidified from the most recent teaser release wherein he talks about going back in time, the video moving backwards, the teaser posters, etc.

Now get this: let’s talk about Back to the Future. 

For any of those who have never watched this movie, Doc in the movie tried explaining how time hopping worked. In the diagram above, he has drawn what happens when you jump backwards in time and manipulate the events in order to create an alternate dimension. By going back in time and changing significant events (largely or slightly), you are in turn creating an alternate timeline.

Now, let’s say Jin has hopped back in time approximately 4 times (BS&T JPN MV, BS&T JPN MV ENDING when Jin meets Namjoon again, Love_Yourself timeline). Let’s say it’s something like this: Original HYYH timeline → BS&T MV Timeline, Second BS&T MV Timeline [aka Joon meeting at the gas station] → Love_Yourself Timeline → Love_Yourself Timeline AGAIN but this time it’s the end of the Highlight Reel. In short, he’s jumped approximately four times (or as far as we know) BUT THERE’S A PROBLEM

Recall Back to the Future? How did Marty fix his timeline again? Or right, he goes even FARTHER into the past, does he not? In order to prevent the bad shit from happening?

Except. Jin doesn’t do exactly do that. Or that is what I’m assuming. Instead of going farther back or exactly in the same time as his first time hop, he goes closer to the present (aka his original timeline), meaning he hasn’t escaped the alternate timeline at all. Sorta like this:

Finn and a possible Stormtrooper uprising in TLJ

After a post on a Stormtrooper unit dedicated to stomping out disloyalty among the ranks, it seems speculations that Finn may be leading an uprising among Stormtroopers in the First Order may well be borne out by The Last Jedi and Episode IX.

If so, it may be that the other TLJ plots involving Finn and Rose, the mission to the casino planet and infiltrating a First Order star destroyer, are lead-ups to that event. Do Finn and Rose go on a mission to get in touch with the leaders of this uprising? Does this meeting lead further to the two of them posing as First Order officers in order to get the mutiny started?

Information about this possible uprising could be what convinces Finn not to leave the fight. The trauma from Slip’s death was part of his motivation for leaving the First Order, and he can’t leave thousands more like Slip to be destroyed when they are desperate for a leader–for him, the symbol of the humanity and defiance behind the helmet.

Tying this in with earlier information and speculation about the remnants of the New Republic fleet and the original Resistance being in a power struggle, maybe the Republic faction is willing to leave the mutinous Stormtroopers high and dry. It’s too risky, Vice Admiral Holdo may decide, and it could be a trap. She may pay lip service to Finn’s bravery, but now that tens of thousands of others like him are willing to do the same thing she’s willing to let them die, showing just how much she really cares.

This would anger Finn and leave him with an even greater sense of obligation, and when Leia offers him a risky mission to get him in contact with the leaders of the uprising he snaps it up. If we go with the theory that Rose is a Republic soldier herself, she might volunteer and be chosen as a way for the Republic fleet to claim some stake in the mission. Maybe no one expects her to do much but she would prove them very wrong.

The First Order would obviously be looking for Finn, too, and the Stormtrooper secret police would probably be doing double duty tracking down internal signs of disloyalty and also the heart of the brewing revolt–because make no mistake, Finn is the soul and heart of the uprising no matter where he may be. The Order would love to see him dead, or better yet, captured, reconditioned, and turned into a mouthpiece.

Captain Phasma would love to see Finn a corpse or a husk, too, though unlike the Order she prefers the first option. Finn not only threatened and humiliated her, he knows that she was the one who dropped the shields on Starkiller Base. She evidently wiped the computer records to cover her tracks (God I love this self-serving bitch), but there were three witnesses to her act. One is dead, the other’s whereabouts are unknown, but If the third, Finn, should show up? Well, the reconditioning had better be good because if there’s any chance of him ratting her out she’ll make certain he never talks again.

The progatonists’ and antagonists’ plans collide when the purported contact with the leadership of the uprising turns out to be a trap to lure Finn into the First Order’s power. Finn and Rose fight their way out and go to Crait? Idk. Kylo Ren realizes his quarry has fled and pursues him to Crait.

Turns out, Rey and Luke are on Crait, too! Maybe Rey had a vision much as Luke did in ESB and saw Finn being captured on Crait, and rushed with Chewie to rescue him. Luke might be all hell yeah, good riddance for a while before he realizes the girl got to him more than he’d thought (or wanted) and follows after her.

Epic battle is joined on Crait, including a reunion between Kylo and Luke and a rematch. Maybe Luke and Rey will double-team Kylo! But the Knights of Ren are there and their Master is stronger than before, and Luke is fighting his own anger and despair and trying not to turn as Kylo urges him to and Rey warns him against. Rey herself is trying not to be overwhelmed by her rage, too, at the memory of Han’s death.

Enter Finn! He, Rose, and the Resistance keep the Knights of Ren busy. Kylo goes into a berserker rage at the sight of Finn in a way that has nothing to do with the First Order and everything to do with his own insecurities. Finn realizes he can make Ren lose control just with his presence, plus maybe a few well-timed insults. Seeing Finn has the opposite effect on Rey, who becomes calmer and stronger.

Finn and Rey banter in the midst of battle even while Kylo Ren goes increasingly haywire. Meanwhile the First Order troops arrive, cutting a swathe through the Resistance and trying to get at Finn. He shoots down Stormtrooper after Stormtrooper before he realizes they are trying to capture him alive. In the sky Poe’s squadron is in danger and Poe himself is just barely keeping himself in the air under heavy fire. Resistance reinforcements led by Admiral Holdo are to arrive any moment, but no one is sure they can hold on that long.

Finn then goes into a sort of momentary trance where all the information he learned so far clicks to a conclusion, and he makes a choice. He does the last thing his enemies, or indeed his allies, expected: He lures Kylo Ren into being captured, but in the process also walks into the First Order’s clutches himself. The entire Resistance are aghast and Rey struggles to fight her way to his side, but he tells her, even while he’s being held down and cuffed, to concentrate on securing Kylo Ren. He gets it now. He’s going to start the Stormtrooper uprising from the inside.

The First Order, now that it has its main target, hurries to retreat ahead of the Resistance reinforcements. The hard-pressed ground and air forces gain a sudden reprieve. Rey, watching helpless from the ground with too many enemies between them as Finn is manhandled onto a First Order ship, says very calmly–we don’t hear her voice, only see her lips move through the noise and the viewport of the ship–I love you.

Finn smiles slowly, tenderly back, though he knows she can’t see him. He says nothing, not even to mouth the words, but we can all fill in the “I know” for ourselves. Despite the fear in his eyes he is peaceful; the path is clear ahead of him, though far from easy.

In space, the Resistance reinforcements arrive but the First Order blinks into hyperspace ahead of them. Poe is ordered to cease pursuit–they have no chance if they fly into First Order space. Poe hits his console in frustration and promises his buddy they’re not giving up on him.

Cut to credits.

Let’s go over the cinnamon topography in Grace and Frankie

Part One | Part Two | Part Three

Cinematography helps convey emotions, and (imo) it’s one of the reasons why we’re sensing romantic tension between Grace and Frankie. How the scenes are shot, blocked, and lit subconciously (or conciously, depending on how aware & critical you are while watching the show) affect our perceptions on the narrative.

Quick sidebar: narrative is different from plot. The plot of Grace and Frankie is the what. What it’s about, what goes on, etc. The narrative is the how. How it’s told, how they navigate their lives, etc. 

Plot =/= Narrative 

For the sake of this meta, I’m focusing on the narrative. Plot only gets them so far, you know?

I’m going to draw in examples from other films/shows that employ the same cinematographical and narrative tactics Grace and Frankie uses. I’m also going to draw in examples from those that don’t, but still have the same core plot (strong female friendship) to provide further insight on why we sense this romantic tension between Grace and Frankie.

Okay, I need a Cockles reassurance because I know you're the only one who can do that. I feel like they were distant at JibCon. We saw the dinner photos and they were all sitting away from each other. Then Misha left Rome pretty quickly. I feel like he had Jensen at arms length this past weekend, granted we don't know what happens backstage or whatever. It's just a vibe I was getting. Plus a little more than tipsy Jensen didn't make Misha very impressed in front of everyone.

Okay, this is something I’ve been seeing a lot of and it kinda drives me crazy, because it’s just showcasing the fact that we never validate these people beyond anything more than a solitary moment. I love Jensen and Misha’s obsession with each other more than anyone, but just because they touch, and flirt and shoot hearteyes like it’s goin’ outta style, doesn’t mean that they don’t have anything else going on in their lives. 

Misha’s character was just killed off the show– and even though Cas is coming back, Misha doesn’t know if it will be in the same capacity that he’s loved and perfected over the last eight years. That has to be kind of heartbreaking. And he’s an empathetic guy, so seeing all of us be hearthbroken right along with him probably makes this even harder. On top of all that– the guy has been busy! In the matter of two weeks, he traveled a better part of the world. Either because of GISHWHES or conventions, he’s been running all over. And it also seems like Vicki might be pregnant again, so if she is– that is probably weighing on his mind too. 

All those things, all that stress and concern and heartache would make anyone a little less jovial than normal. Now, throw in the fact that your best friend and coworker (and maybe even lover) is partying a bit too hard and acting a little crazier than you’re used to, you’d be hardpressed to not show that frustration on your face. I don’t think Misha was necessarily mad at Jensen. I don’t think he wanted to push him away or “punish” him or anything like that … but if he was already down, then having to deal with someone who it super up, can be difficult. 

And on Jensen’s side of things … he probably knew all this about MIsha. Jensen is one of those types of people who tries to balance out his friend’s sadness by giving that much extra happiness. He has done it with Jared– when Jared is down, or sick, or maybe, not even there … Jensen goes over the top in order to make things better. I got that feeling when he was on stage with Misha this year at JIbcon. Misha was a bit more calm overall, and since Jensen had probably talked with the guy about it and knew that Misha was going to be kinda low, he decided to make up the difference. Also, Jensen just enjoys Rome and likes having fun and letting loose, so he took those extra shots and drank that last glass of “apple juice” and just had good time. And with as many hours as he works,  and with twins and a four year old at home– more power to him!

No one was mad at anyone. Misha just has a lot going on and Jensen is just a good, good friend. Like I say every time something like this occurs: Misha and Jensen are fine. Don’t panic.

Cockles is real.
