it was in the first season though

“You son of a bitch!” – My honest and long-winded thoughts about the Season Finale

If you had asked me yesterday what I thought of the Season Finale, I might not have had many great things to say about it. I watched the episode after being awake for nearly 24 hours and hyped up about it for two weeks. The first word that came to my mind was “anticlimactic”. I re-watched Season 3 over the weekend and was waiting for a huge reveal about this absolutely bad thing Robert did. Something that was so much bigger than him not returning home asap. After all, it was a mystery for two episodes and Jasper made it sound so bad. Watching the episode, I felt like nothing was really happening:

-          We did not get anywhere with Jaspenor - which was to be expected - though him finally telling her that he loves her was so overdue (even Tom was confused it was never said before). But in my overtired state, not even their conversation felt as dramatic, loving and passionate as any of the other ones beforehand.

-          And Robert, well, apart from him knowing about Liam and Kathryn and calling her a whore, there was nothing new. I expected him to have had bad parting words with his dad, meddling in Jaspenor’s relationship and we all “feared” (?) there might be something starting with Willow. Sure, him inviting Sebastian and firing Spencer (GET HIM BACK!!!) was really bad, but not this huge revelation that I hoped for. He is an asshole like I expected, maybe a bit more mentally deranged than I thought but still, I did not feel satisfied by the episode. It would have made a great mid-season finale but a season finale? Not so much in my eyes.

I knew even yesterday, that my feelings were due to me being so tired and my brain not being able to spare cells for being compassionate and excitable and I, myself, hyping this episode up so much in my head. I tried to make gifs to stay connected to the episode, but as much as I love Mark directing episodes, it’s a bitch to gif his close-ups with the E! Logo taking up half the character’s faces. So, I was even more annoyed after that and finally decided to go to sleep. Me being in Europe, meant it was 4am when the episode aired and I finally went to bed at 9am, after being awake for 27 hours. Obviously, I wasn’t able to really sleep enough (luckily, I took the day off work beforehand, knowing that I wouldn’t be in the right frame of mind to go to work) and felt disappointed by it all for the rest of the day. To get my mind off things, I decided to spent the day watching all eight episodes of Jo, starring our lovely Tom Austen. If you are even remotely interested in Tom Austen and haven’t watched it yet, you better get on it. I am no fan of Crime Dramas, even left the room when my family watched them at home, but with the right eye-candy, even I could be persuaded. The whole show is so good and Tom is delectable. Think Season 2 Jasper in unbuttoned Henley Shirts. Watching it, put me in a better mood, even though I’m a bit sad now that it was only eight episodes.

Now it’s 7:15 pm on Tuesday and I finally am calm and composed enough to give the Season 3 Finale another chance and will write down my (new and improved) thoughts on it below.




Okay, I don’t even really know where to start. I still don’t consider it the best or the strongest episode, but I like it way better now that I’m of sound mind. I think it’s easiest to once again go through all the characters.

Let’s start with Cyrus:

I am super glad that we get to keep Jake Maskall for another season. As much as I disliked him in the beginning, as glad I am about his comic relief in every episode now. Compared to Robert, he is actually quite sane and likeable. I can’t wait to see what news his doctor has for him – hopefully they are good. Two seasons with cancer should be enough for that poor soul. Wow, I never thought I see the day in which I felt sympathetic for Cyrus :D

Liam:

He really is the only one who was able to see through Robert, sad that it only comes across as jealousy to the other ones. Him going to Cyrus in the end does shows the newly determined HRH we need for Season 4. He needs a new purpose just like in Season 2. His character arc always goes from lovesick puppy in the odd seasons to fierce badass in the even seasons. He was so weak with Kathryn and broke Willows heart, it’s time for him to stay away from girls for a while. I’m still not ruling out a possible Kathryn pregnancy, depending on Christina Wolfe’s availability for Season 4. To be honest though? I can totally live without it and won’t be sad to see her go.

Willow:

The moment Robert gave her the list, I expected her to be on top. Well, we all expected it after 3x07 and their HP conversation. I do not necessarily expect her to find out what Robbie really is like, but I don’t think she will marry him. She would make in amazing queen, but not with this king by her side. She was so into Liam and he is the polar opposite of Robert – in looks and character - so I can’t see her falling for him. Sure, he can be immensely charming, but Willow is one of the few people on the show who is not after the crown. I’m also certain that Robert just saw her dumping an insane amount of tickets into Liam’s box at the People’s Gala and wants to get even. We’ve had enough love triangles this season to last for the rest of the show. So either Liam just will not give a damn or Willow will be tough on Robert and show him that she’s not to be messed with.

Helena:

BRING ME BACK SPENCER!!! I NEED SPENCER!!!!! The look on her face when Spencer hugs her and the one at the end when she realizes what kind of monster she helped put on the thrown were amazing. She needs to be in cahoots with Cyrus and Liam to bring down Robert.

Robert:

Liam might be the better king in real life, but this is a TV Drama and King Robert is the best thing that could have happened to the show. No matter if it’s true of not, I will always believe that Robbie is the one responsible for Simon’s death. This guy went mental because his brother kissed his Ex and his mum and sister are in love with the help. Planning to kill your father who told you that are the worst thing that could happen to the UK, only sounds reasonable after that. And being stuck on an island for months gives you the best alibi. (Loved that we go to have Vincent Regan back for an episode – he really is a great dad.) Robert, Robert, Robert… As much as I hate this son of a bitch (sorry, Helena), Max Brown is AMAZING! I really needed all of these episodes to come to terms with the fact that we have to live with Robert and will not get rid of him. It’s okay now. He is just the manipulative asshole the monarchy needed. And there always needs to be a character you love to hate. There is still so much that needs to be uncovered about him and I do hope we get more than one more season to find out what he is truly like. More than anything, I do hope that Len and Jasper will find out what he did.

Jasper:

If you read through the beginning of my post (and stuck until down here), you know that I’m riding the Tom Austen bandwagon pretty hard right now. To be completely honest: I didn’t even consider him good looking in the beginning of the show. I blame Season 1 hair 😄 Looking back now, I don’t know what was wrong with me back then! It might have been the hair, it might have been Jasper’s bad boy attitude which I’m not a fan of unlike the majority of girls out there or it might have been the fact that, being a Narnia fan, I was so focused on Liam that I just didn’t waste a thought on Jasper/Tom. Now I want to ride him as hard as I’m riding the bandwagon and I think my neighbors might have actually heard me squeal during Jasper’s “I love you”. I really think that there are only a few moments in which Tom looked better than during that speech. His eyes, his mouth, his stubble and damn his voice! I am such a sucker for voices which makes it so strange that I completely failed my linguistics class twice. If you are still with me after this Ode to Tom, I want to get back to Jasper. My poor puppy finally poured his heart out to his girl! And if I believe someone to just “see the girl he loves be happy” – even if it’s without him in her life – it’s him. They will get their Happily Ever After. They have to! And if Mark is not giving it to us, there is always our imagination – and fanfiction! I haven’t rooted for a couple this much since Luke & Lorelai back in Season 4 of Gilmore Girls. They need to be endgame! With a Royal(s) Wedding and beautiful little godchildren for Uncle James and Aunty Sara Alice. Speaking of James and Sara Alice, I do hope that we will get them back for Season 4. There can be no Jaspenor without their cheerleaders / pseudo-dad & fake-daughter / sister (they really have the weirdest relationship). Usually protecting the king would be James’s job but now he has Jasper and I still believe that it is the worst thing that could have happened. First of all, Robert hates him and second, he wants Jasper because “he is the best at what he does”. In Robert’s eyes that means “the best at stealing, deceiving and not caring for the law”. And Mark hinting at a possible friendship between these two just makes me throw up in my mouth. We will get to see less of Liam and Jasper together, as Liam has a new alley now, but I need them to stay BFFs. I just need that! It’s inevitable that he and Robert they will get closer during Eleanor’s absence though.


Eleanor:

I hate to see her go, but it is what’s best for her. She can’t put her life on hold for a guy. Even if that guy is Jasper. She needs time away from the palace to finally become her own person. Not influenced by her mother or her brothers. If even Jasper can’t find anything wrong with Sebastian, I will have to start liking him – even though I really don’t want to. He might be a great friend for her, but I would much rather see her hang out with Rosie and Liam. It was about time that she got the storybook and saw how much Jasper loves her, but even thought I hoped it turned out differently, I’m glad that she did not run back into Jasper’s arm. She is not a weak character and he really hurt her one too many times. Two of my all-time favorite quotes are “Absence makes the heart grow fonder” and “Home is where the heart is”. I think both will play a great deal in Len’s life during her six months away.

Season 4:

So, where will we pick up in Season 4. As nothing is written yet, it’s just a wild guessing game. I’m sure we will start 6 months later (5 months and 3 weeks to be exact). For one, so Jake can keep his sideburns, but also because we need to see how the kingdom changed under Robert’s rule. What is actually Liam’s plan? Does he want to expose Robert? Which team is Helena on? Do we get Spencer back?!!! How friendly will Jasper and King Asshole be? Is Willow actually dating Robert? For whatever reason, I do get the feeling that Eleanor will cut her hair a bit / keep it shorter than usual like Alex does at the moment. A new hairdo for a new ‘her’. It will probably not happen, as long hair just looks better on TV (and on a princess) but who knows. If it could choose what I want to happen in the first episode, I would love Len to come back home earlier as she couldn’t stay away any longer. Or Jasper keeps tabs on her via the media and even though they say she’s dating Sebastian, he sees that she is wearing his necklace… Or whatever. I don’t actually care what happens, I just want them to start filming and airing now 😄 I take everything as long as it doesn’t feel like a lifetime until the new Season.

Okay, this is WAY longer than I intended it to become. I wish I could have written 2369 words for my fanfiction in the past week. If someone here is reading my fanfiction, I’m sorry for the lack of update. For one, my family and work is keeping me from writing, but also the Season Finale and my real-person Tom Austen (who would have thought) fiction were keeping my mind occupied. Now that the season is over, I hope my head calms down a bit and I can concentrate on what is important again: give people as much Jaspenor as possible.

And now I will leave you with a picture of the possibly new Royal Family incl. Queen Wilhelmina and Jasper, Duke of “Whatever it takes to make it happen”

Timeless Scenes for every episode (1x16)

It’s barely been a few days since the season(!) finale and none of us are really over it yet, but I wanted to get this out of my system because the episode was fantastic and heart breaking and I check for new fanfics every hour. (It’s only a small problem okay…)

Here are some of my thoughts on the scenes above and why they’re my favorite.

1- Noah… First, thank the heavens she finally broke up with him. Second, I felt bad for him in this episode, even though I never liked him; and now that my theories about her mother are canon I really don’t trust him. Like if Lucy is Rittenhouse royalty there’s no way that her mother would let her marry someone she didn’t truly approve of (which means he’s likely Rittenhouse too). But it was nice to see him look like he cared(s) about her and has a heart. I’m sure he’ll be back next season making her life more miserable along with her mother… SMH. (AND YES I HAVE 78% FAITH, WE’RE GETTING ANOTHER SEASON, BC IT WOULD BE WRONG TO NOT RENEW THIS SHOW).

2-Oh Jiya. I love Jiya. This scene was gold.

3&4- Any scene where anyone recognizes that Lucy and Wyatt are married af is my favorite.

5- Ethan Cahill killed me, a whole lot. I love him and he’s the one redeemable Rittenhouse member. His and Lucy’s relationship is the best and he treats her with so much love and respect. And he sees her and Wyatt as married af too, so that’s also amazing.

6-This scene made me so sad. I felt horrible for Flynn and wished he could have gone to save his family. AND FINALLY we got some answers in this scene even though it only led to more questions. And bc they have really good chemistry, and even though I am 100% a Lyatt shipper, I can recognize that Lucy and Flynn have got something good going on beneath all that mystery and loss too.

7&8- I hate slow burn ships and I would have given anything for them to be honest with each other and just shout that they love each other. But hugs… hugs and safety and comfort are some of the best things about a relationship. And this hug… they didn’t have to shout anything, it was so obviously there.

9- Same thing, but I’m glad Wyatt’s finally seeing that he doesn’t need to feel guilty for loving Lucy and wanting to move on with his life. It was a great natural progression that shouldn’t be rushed (I know I just contradicted myself from 7&8, but it’s true and taking care of grief in a positive way is something that needs to be done proper).

10- Jiya… again, I love Jiya. And I knew she could hear him. I was glad they at least got a semi-happy ending.

Okay, that’s all for now and not all of my posts will be this long I promise; but I’m just still so full of feels after that finale!

Bonus (gif maker tag is on the gif itself):

11- I’m glad Connor wasn’t the evil dick we all thought he was. I mean I’m still mad but I don’t hate him. I didn’t want to believe he was evil but at the same time I found it totally plausible; but this scene where he’s back being his dorky self and his earlier scene with Agent Christopher where he explained he was playing the long game and protecting Rufus- that’s where he really redeemed himself for me.

♡ + juice-boxes

(AMI! -hugs- Since we both know I unashamedly love juice boxes to an inhuman degree, this one was very fun for me ^w^ 💗💗) 

Mike and Eleven don’t have their “official first date” until a few years down the road from their first kiss, but if you asked El many years later, she’d have to disagree, pointing out one particular summer night that she remembered every detail of as perfectly as if it was the other day and knew was, though unofficial, their first date. Hawkins summer of ‘85, in particular. A fiercely hot day that would into a gently warm night, one where the air envelops you like a soft blanket and the stars seems to shine a little bit brighter in celebration of the liveliness of the season. Lucas was gone for a few days on a family vacation, Will was spending the week at an arts camp, and Dustin was at a family reunion a few hours away. Eleven and Mike spent the whole day together and, in an effort to include Holly in their summer activities, put together an entire pretend Olympic games that they played throughout the day: who can pick up the most marbles out of the faded blue kiddie pool with only their toes, whose Eggo waffle cooks the fastest on the blisteringly hot concrete, who can blow the biggest bubbles, who can drink a juice box fast enough without the straw. Their “closing ceremonies” before Holly went to bed consisted of Mike releasing a jar of fireflies he had caught a little earlier as the “doves” and the distribution of different flavors of Eggos as the “medals.” Hopper let El stay over at the Wheeler’s that night (the whole summer thus far had been like playing musical chairs with whose house would hold the next sleepover), so she changed into her fuzzy dinosaur pants and Star Wars t-shirt quickly while Mike picked out his pajamas and, tugging a blanket out from inside the fort in the basement, went to lay it out on the dry grass in the backyard to sit and look up at the stars. Lost in the sea of vastness that is the night sky, El almost didn’t notice that Mike still hadn’t joined her in the backyard….. She was pulled from her thoughts suddenly when the back door creaked open loudly, whipping around quickly in a way that made her curly hair bounce a little bit. There, with an award-winning dorky and cheesy grin on his face, stood Mike Wheeler, balancing plates, juice boxes, and wine glasses for two on his palms with more precision that a trained acrobat. El giggled as he proudly made his way over to the soft patch of blanket. Mike set one plate in front of her—half a grilled cheese sandwich paired with a strawberry Eggo—and one for himself, before tearing open the flaps of the juice boxes to pour the contents into his mom’s fancy wine glasses. He tried to keep a straight face throughout it, but Eleven doubled over laughing at his gesture, as he explained with a smirk, “Athletes deserve only the highest of honor and sophistication, Miss El!” With stars in their eyes and warmth in their hearts, Mike and Eleven almost unconsciously interlaced their fingers and clinked their wine glasses of juice together underneath the gentle glow of the moonlight

anonymous asked:

I don't know if Briller broke up or not because it wasn't explicitly stated but if they really did, isn't that kinda ooc for Bryan? He knows there's a big chance that, despite their solutions and plans for survival, all of them might only have two more months to live and like ????? Is this really a good time to be having fights or big crisis in your relationship? Would he really want to spend what's left of their time away from Miller when they were planning on growing old together last season?

I see where you’re coming from, but I don’t think any of that (the corn etc) was really on Bryan’s mind.

First, Bryan had no knowledge of there being only two months left. At the time, they assumed six. We have to assume now that he knows, even though he wasn’t in the last episode.

Second, walking away from Miller during that argument is super in character Bryan, and I’ll be happy to explain why, because I love talking about him. (You can find my original Bryan/Briller meta here, and it’s basically just about what I could discern of their relationship during season three.)

What we know of Bryan isn’t much, but we know that he is hardcore, wrapped in a puppy. I say this because Bryan, it’s safe to say, has killed. Long before Polis. He has killed because his entire station was wearing the outfits of Ice Nation - people they would have had to kill to get to this point, to have their clothes, and to survive. Bryan would have killed to save his people - something that a lot of people on this show do.

He’s wrapped in a puppy because - you have seen him, right? He just looks gentle and kind and good, and he was worried that he was the bad thing for Miller back in season two, and he rushed to Riley as soon as he saw him. Also with the floppy hair and the smile it’s just difficult not to love him okay. Hardcore wrapped in a puppy.

Keep that in mind.

Bryan will fight to keep his people safe. He’s done it before, and he did it again when he voted to set off the bomb. No, not only that: he suggested setting off the bomb. It was his idea to save the slaves. It was his idea to just plain out attack the Ice Nation to get into the station. He will do what it takes, and he fights for what he believes in: and that seems to be saving his people and keeping them safe.

If we’re splitting couples into head and heart, Miller is the head, Bryan is the heart. He didn’t let anything else overshadow his need to save his friends. He didn’t think about the water and how they could suffer in the future - he thought about the people suffering right now. He wanted to help them now.

So when he asks Miller if he thought that saving the slaves was the right thing to do, and Miller says no, this is meaningful. Not in just the sense that these people are Bryan’s people; these are his friends and family - but in the sense that this is a fundamental position of Bryan; something that makes him who he is - the fact that he’s the heart, not the head. In relationships with these sorts of people, head and heart work together - but only after having issues and butting heads because of the differing opinions (see Bellamy and Clarke).

Right now, Bryan and Miller are just butting heads because their priorities don’t exactly line up. Miller’s priorities are living in the future, Bryan’s are deserving to live right now. (You might have noticed, as I have throughout writing this, that Bryan and Miller seem to reflect a lot of other relationships back at us.) I truly think they did not break up in 4.02 (I think that was the episode), and it was a fight; a meaningful one, yes, but a fight all the same.

(Remember that whilst Bellamy and Clarke only took about ¾ episodes to get to an agreement, they only knew each other when thrown into a high stress situation, both as leaders. Miller and Bryan aren’t leaders - and their relationship before the ground would’ve been fairly simple. They’re hitting their butting heads period now because this is the first time a serious situation has come up - especially one they both feel strongly about, and one they’re not going to move on. In the Pike debacle, lives weren’t immediately at stake, and Bryan was willing to change sides. This isn’t the case anymore.)

I don’t know what they plan to do in the rest of the season with Briller, as there’s a lot of different directions they could go. But, hopefully, the writers have chosen to show them working past their issues (just like Bellamy and Clarke did back in season 1, as they do seem to be reflecting them - and I’ve spoken before about some similarities between Bellamy and Bryan) and leading them to both being saved from the radiation.

They want that future together, they do. Just because they had a fight doesn’t mean either has gone nope nada don’t want that anymore. They want that future with the chickens, the corn, the house by the lake - and whilst it’s far less likely, what with the end of the world coming, their differing opinions don’t mean that they’re going to stop being together - especially when long standing relationships, like theirs, have a track record of getting past issues.

Besides, I think there was an important line from Bryan in 4.02. When Miller asked why Bryan turned against Pike, Bryan said “I did it for you, Nate”.

They may oppose each other as head and heart, but their number one priority, I think we’ve seen, is each other.

Riley and Smackle: They Don’t Consider Each Other To Be “Serious” About Farkle

In GMSS and GMG, the potential series finale of GMW (keep up with Netflix, Amazon, Hulu, anyone else you think will take the show and asking Disney to release the rights), Smarkle had a lot of abrupt development, which didn’t really reflect their slow buildup as a relationship between the two most interpersonally challenged characters on the show. But it happened, and it made you feel good about Farkle and Smackle, having this relationship, which is somehow the most stable teenaged relationship on GMW.

But Farkle’s two other potential love interests were really just too busy this season to challenge Farkle, though they both managed to sneak moments into GMW. Of course I mean Markle and Riarkle. Isn’t that the real regret of the show only having three seasons? Not finding out who will be the first Mrs. Farkle Minkus? (technically it was Maya :P)

But despite this, Riley and Smackle don’t consider each other to be all that “serious about Farkle”. Particularly Riley, though Smackle often does this as well. 

In GMG, Maya apologizes to Smackle after kissing Farkle on the cheek and making him pass out. But Riley also apologizes when Farkle tell her “I’ve loved you since the first grade, wherever you are.” But Farkle doesn’t. Farkle, seeing Smackle flirt with Lucas and Zay and even Josh, treats Smackle the exact same way. In GMHSP1, he flirts with the “random coincidence ladies” in front of Smackle, ruining the cute moment he’d been having and then making a joke out of it. He never apologizes for his behavior, even when in GMSS Smackle admits that she flirts with other guys because she feels insecure about Farkle loving her back.

In one of the first episodes Smackle is in, she asks Riley why Farkle prefers her and Maya, which Riley replies to by saying “I don’t know, if I did I would stop!” Farkle also tells Smackle he’d never noticed before that Riley and Maya were beautiful. It’s also Riley and Maya who convince Farkle to be with Smackle “your two fake wives want you to spend time with one real Smackle.”

So why doesn’t Riley think Farkle and Smackle were going to last? In GMJexica Riley makes up her and Maya’s future in which Maya has five husbands, and she marries Lucas herself. Maya’s husbands include every guy they know, not including Lucas (presumably Farkle, Yogi, Zay, Josh, and I guess Nigel?). Riley says “But you were married to Farkle for six weeks, rest his soul.” and Maya replies “Let me tell you, the boy died happy.” At this point Smackle’s already given up going to a more advanced school just to be with Farkle and his friends, so why do Riley and Maya predict that it won’t last?

Then, as i mentioned earlier, there’s the GMG scene in which Farkle promises to always love Riley, wherever she is in the world. After Riley points out maybe he shouldn’t say that in front of Smackle (which has never been a problem for Riley in season two or season three up until then), Smackle quizes Riley on some nuclear physics question which Riley obviously doesn’t know the answer to. She declares that Riley’s not “a threat” to her relationship with Farkle.

So I guess, get bugging the networks to pick up the show, because Riarkle vs Smarkle has been foreshadowed and it is coming as long as we can get the show going. I love Riley and Smackle both and I think after Farkle, Smackle likes Riley the most. So I’d be really interested in seeing this triangle, also that Markle kiss in GMG has me asking some questions about Lucas’s future on the show.

My take on season 2 of Supergirl

When it first came out, I absolutely hated fifty shades of grey (stay with me, we’ll get to Supergirl). It was basically a story about a woman who let herself by part of the agenda of a sick man. Essentially, Grey is a manipulative, mysoginistic man who objectifies and controls women; the novel and the movie make that clear. However, even though he was clearly a dangerous man, he was desired worldwide. Women everywhere wished they had a “Grey” in their lives. Even my sister wanted some shade of grey in her life, and that shocked and revolted me: how can they not see that book is about a sick, violent, dangerous man! Then a thought occured to me, and this is particularly why fifty shades of grey is an important book: because it shows how much and how often women misinterpret love and affection, and accept domination and obsession. Some women strongly believe having a man patronise them is a sign of love. I am Brazilian, and I see this everyday, even amongst my family, who is supposedly highly educated.

Moving on to Supergirl. I like this season because it clearly contrasts Kara’s relationship with that of Alex’s. While Kara has a fuckboy around her who is constantly trying to put her down, Alex has never been better, she is with a wonderful and supportive woman. To be honest, I am glad the people on Tumblr can see that clearly, that Mon-el is a one way ticket to a very toxic relationship, that he comes from a culture that glorifies mysoginistic behavior and that he is not respectful of LGBT (on the scene Alex introduces Maggie as her girlfriend, I recognized in him the gaze of man who “like” lesbians as a fetiche), but most people can’t. The show makes it evident that he is not a nice guy: he won’t fight crime because he believes in that, he would rather work in a bar; he won’t trust Kara to look out for herself, he just barges in uninvited everywhere and messes things up. I have seen women say “why doesn’t she want him?”, “He is perfect, he stands up for her”, and on that moment I can say “hold up, do you seriously believe that Mon-el is going to be good for Kara?” And procede to explain why that is not the case at all, it doesn’t seem to be what the series is building up.

I can’t say for sure, the series barely halfway through, but I believe (I hope, tbh) that the show is doing something important: Kara is going to remember what being loved feels like and start to value those individuals that actually love her, not someone who is very toxic to her and makes her sad. This season is a strong critique and diagnose of how a great number of women think they should be treated and an example to us: if someone’s behavior ever reminds us of Mon-el, male or female, we will know nothing good can come out of that individual.

How long did the campaign on Ryloth last? Obi Wan and Mace were both on the planet for the beginning and the end of the revolution, but in Supply Lines both Jedi are on Coruscant. Did they simply leave and return or was the Separatist surrender a false pretense?

Unfortunately, that is a confusion that comes with the lack of chronological order again, Anon.

Though Supply Lines is within Season 3, it technically happens prior to the events of the campaign of Ryloth episodes with Mace Windu and Obi Wan.

I would recommend taking a look at the official chronological order here: [x]

I actually started to casually watch star trek tng and while I enjoy it so far and I'm sure Wil Wheaton's a nice dude irl. I wanna punch Wesley into the sun. I hate him and I hate everything he stands for. his mom's cool though

yeah Wesley is real annoying but apparently he was like, Roddenberry’s self-insert Gary Stu lmao. But as if Data isn’t as wildly hyper-competent and overused as Wesley is, lol. Dr. Crusher is cool tho. 

TNG is interesting because the first two seasons are Bad in the way that they didn’t know what they wanted to be, like, they tried to do wacky-thing-of-the-week like TOS did but it just didn’t work out. As they felt out their setting and characters better it really improved, each season better than the last. 

TNG’s theme is all about like, episodic Space Ethics and individual encounters around that, which is cool. I prefer DS9 because it has an overarching plot spanning 7 seasons that’s about Space War and Space Culture. TOS tho, can’t beat that for Space Adventures. As for Voyager? It just SUCKS. Enterprise is also just kinda average but not that bad

Season 3 is over!!

And I ended up in platinum! Got quite close to diamond there! I’m very happy with plat though, because sam and I climbed up from low silver (we even dipped into bronze on bad days), all up to here. That’s quite a feat!

I also

  • Got my first golden weapon (Ana)
  • Beat almost every single stat from season 2, with the exception of “damage done”. Since I mostly played Ana, that makes sense.

Now a week of downtime, and then on to season 4!

Season 2 hc: Everyone grows attached to Yuuri in Russia and Victor has some Regrets ™

Or: my excuse to draw domestic Russian family + Yuuri

This couple. Viktor and Yuuri. They’re killing me. This contains YOI Ep. 9 spoilers. 

There’s this emotional reunion between them at the end of the episode, after they have been apart. It’s beautiful in general, but what is really killing me is how they focused on Viktor and Yuuri’s movement into each other’s space. We know how closed off Yuuri is with feelings and relationships. We know he didn’t like that girl in the past hugging him because he was feeling vulnerable and it felt like she was intruding on his heart, his feelings. 

We know that Yuuri sees his relationship with Viktor as something different (“he meets me where I am,” his moment of vulnerability with Viktor in the carpark), but he’s still been hesitant to ask Viktor what will happen if he loses the Grand Prix, hesitant to ask what will happen to them when the season ends. 

Here. Though. HERE MAN. This pic below is after Viktor and Yuuri first reunite and hug. Yuuri pushes him to arms length to ask Viktor to stay with him until he retires from skating, almost as if he’s preparing to protect himself if Viktor says no (BOI HE’S SO IN LOVE WITH YOU HOW CAN YOU EVEN WORRY ABOUT THIS AT THIS POINT OH MY GOD. ahem.)

But, when he asks, Viktor makes this face and kind of makes light of the question - “is this a proposal’ - after just kissing Yuuri’s left hand, maybe even his left ring finger if you’re super shipping trash like me and think that’s what he did. 

And then Yuuri does this.

HE STEPS INTO VIKTOR’S SPACE.

This is so important for our precious closed off Yuuri. I mean, even with Viktor, who we all know he loves, he’s been cautious. Viktor - for the most part - initiates shared spaces, casual touching, the actual kiss in ep. 7. Yuuri is far less upfront about his feelings. Yes, we all know the Eros routine is basically one giant “I want Viktor and he is Mine” deal, but that’s still, arguably, not a super direct way of telling Viktor what he wants. 

This though. This is Yuuri telling Viktor what he wants. Yuuri being vulnerable with Viktor. Yuuri putting everything he feels for Viktor out there and Viktor, once again, meeting him (emotionally) where he is at. Only this time, Yuuri is the one to have made that push, to take that step, and creates that shared space for them. 

And then Viktor says he hopes Yuuri never retires. And Yuuri cries. And they clutch each other like this.

And I die. 

I was going to draw something cute/happy/romantic after finishing Season 2 but… (╥﹏╥)

Just a thought...

GUYS GUYS GUYS GUYS GUYS  GUYS GUYS GUYS GUYS GUYS
Bear with me for a second. I was sleeping a few minutes ago and I woke up with an epiphany.
I was thinking about Even and wondering how he’s doing (as I’ve been obssessing for the last two days), if he is alone or not, and in his room… and I remembered his bed

I don’t know why, but the first time I saw episode 2, the moment when the guys are in Even’s room, I though to myself “that’s odd… a doble decker bed… ok”. At that time I wrote it off as Even maybe wanting more space, but now after episode 8 and having rewatched seasons 1 and 2 enough times, I can say that ALL of the oher characters have a “standard” bed… ALL OF THEM, from Eva (her own bed, the other one from the cabin, and even the one at the party when she and Chris kiss), to Noora, and even William.
During this season, two love stories with a “balcony” scene have been mentioned repitedly, but “Pretty Woman” more specifically as of late. Furthermore, we KNOW the show NEVER leaves a loose end, as we’ve seen in episode 9 the conection between the clip “21:21″ and Isak’s time and date of birth thanks to the message from Isak’s mom.
Maybe I’m overanalysing, but I think that by the end of this week we’ll see Isak going to Even’s house, and climb those stairs…

  • What she says: im fine
  • What she means: ive been waiting literally nearly four fucking years for season two of attack on titan. attack on titan first aired way before pepe existed, and season two came later than his meme's death. most people think waiting one or two years for a new season to start is painful, but do you understand how painful waiting four fucking years for season two of a show to come out? no, you don't. dont give me that "it took how many years for finding dory though" bullshit because nobody was anticipating it. finding fucking dory was never postponed multiple times. ive been suffering the postponed season two for four years. you better believe im not fucking fine.

I really want to understand the logic of this show. The leader of Cadmus was arrested. Lillian LUTHOR was arrested, Lex’s mother. Another Luthor from that infamous family is in prison. And all thanks to her daugther, who prevented every single alien from dying even though most people were wary of her and her company. That was literally the premise of the season!

Why is no one in the show talking about that? Why weren’t the news everywhere, especially on Catco. Why does it seems like they just dropped this entire storyline when they took their time building it?

And Kara has always been shown to be such a good friend and such a good person and it really seemed like she cared about Lena. And Supergirl and Lena aren’t on the best of terms so after everything that happened, why didn’t she go to make amends? To see how lena was doing? A scene like their final scene in 2x05?

And this is not about shipping, it’s just about what it seemed to be their in canon relationship. Their supposed friendship

I’m seriously confused about it and maybe I’m too optmistic but I really hope everything has an explanation because it just seems weird.

Hiccup the Romantic

Hiccup has thought about kissing Astrid first multiple times and he always waited until the moment was “Perfect”. 

So even though Astrid was the one always initiating the kissing before Season 4 of RTTE, Hiccup was FAR from being the shy type of lover. He’s a romantic, and as a romantic he waited until the perfect moment to initiate their first kiss as a couple.

When Astrid was confiding in him about her fear of being permanently blind, Hiccup comforts her by saying that they’ll get through it together. Telling her that he will never abandon her side and that there will always be a “Hiccup and Astrid”. His genuine confession of commitment was practically a declaration of marriage as he leans in to kiss her before they were attacked.

And when Astrid finally gets her sight back at the end of the episode, Hiccup doesn’t hesitate to kiss her during the sunset after she comments that the moment was perfect for it. And can I point out how passionate that kiss was? Seriously from that moment on all of their kisses has been Husband and Wife level of affection. 

So let’s get one thing straight: Hiccup is not a shy lover, he’s a romantic. And he’s not afraid of going in for a more passionate display of affection.
