I’m just going to leave this parallel here for you guys. Episode 9 is the first time we see Victor’s tender smile in show since the opening scene of episode 1. And I’m sure it’s no coincidence that Victor is reaching his hand out in ep 1 and grasping Yuuri’s hand in episode 9. *weeps*
my favourite part about the “i’ll catch you, i’ve got you tina” scene wasn’t just the dialogue (lbr the dialogue takes uncontested #2 and the actual catch takes uncontested #1, but at a narrow #3), it was the way newt was talking to her and looking at her, his stance that screamed that he had been doing this his whole life and he knew just what to say and how to appear the most trusting, eyes wide and locked straight in hers, tone low and confident
i guess what I’m trying to say is, newt scamander, the magizoologist was just so present in that scene, and it was a great newtina one, yes, but it was also a brilliant newt moment too, because it cut right to the core of who he is and how he sees every life: as completely and utterly equal at the heart of it
Happy Memorial Day! Enjoy your “stars and stripes” bikini treat! Sorry just a behind the scenes cell phone shot. I will have some professional “stars and stripes” pics ready for July 4th, especially since that’s one of my favs!
They’ve only talked a handful of times. It’s not out of character for Kara to not invite her to friendsgiving…
Yes, Lena doesn’t have many friends in National City, but it’s actually usually a family holiday. Kara made it Friendsgiving in response to Winn not having family. Lena is probably spending it with her villain mom.
That said, if Lena actually expressed that she had no one to spend Thanksgiving with, we all know Kara would offer in a heartbeat.
2. Alex and Maggie are friends, but it’s likely a little shaky right now. And as strong as their connection has been, they haven’t actually known each other that long. (Come on guys, imagine inviting your crush that you met a couple weeks ago, who rejected you, then refriended you, to Thanksgiving. It’s just a bit much.)
Not to mention, Alex’s plan was to come out, which just complicates things more. At this stage, I think Alex’s coming out story is moving away from being about a person Alex likes, and more about Alex’s identity. Something she needs to do on her own, you know?
Also, Lena and Maggie don’t know Kara’s secret, and I feel like it’s not a comfortable Thanksgiving if you have to hide a part of yourself. (Anyone who isn’t out to all of their family knows that it is tiring. That sometimes, if you could choose, you’d prefer to only have the people that know around you.)
Like 90% of the conversation topics would be out the window if Lena and Maggie came. No Supergirl saves, no DEO, no “there’s this cute girl I met”.
As for the boys, Winn and James are rather close friends with Kara, and Mon-El has no one else. So they’re just all gonna be there. Obviously.
I’ve seen headcanons I’ve liked about Mabel being trans, and headcanons I’ve liked about Dipper being the twin who’s trans, and both have made sense because identical twins are biologically incapable of being different sexes. Fraternal twins are, of course, but not identical twins – and so far as the fandom is aware, all twins bearing the name Pines are, in fact, identical.
Which is to say that while I don’t know whether I like Dipper being trans or Mabel being trans better, I really like the idea of people in the Gravity Falls universe realizing that one of these supposedly “identical” twins must be trans and the other must still identify with the gender they were assigned at birth. I just love imagining the reactions the twins have when said people start asking rude, idiotic questions. “So, which one of you is the real/original twin?” “Are you actually supposed to be two girls, or two boys?” “Which one of you is faking your gender and which isn’t?” Etc. and so on, infinitely spiraling down the well of idiocy and transphobia as they go.
Mabel wiggles her arms dramatically and does a “spooky” voice, crab-walking in front of Dipper for extra effect. “No~bo~dy kno~w~s,” she extends each vowel for, like, three minutes to make sure this person feels uncomfortable for as long as possible. She’s very theatrical about the whole thing. In fact, I wouldn’t be surprised if she sometimes tells them to wait a second and runs off to get a sweater labeled “Mystery Twins” and then stands in front of them explaining that this wasn’t the sweater’s original purpose, but maybe now they get the idea that (and she extends the words even longer this time, just for good measure) “No~bo~dy kno~w~s! It’s a my~s~tery~!”
Dipper gets extremely defensive, taking his angry stance and practically shouting at the person to “Mind your own business, you creep!” in the most determined voice he can manage. He grabs Mabel by the hand and tells her they’re leaving, since they have better things to do than listen to ignorant creeps asking stupid questions. Mabel lets him, sticking her tongue out at the person who started interrogating them, trying to get the last word in as the twins exit the scene.
The person idly wonders whether Dipper getting defensive was because he’s the trans twin and he’s sensitive about it, or because he’s just that protective of Mabel. They never do figure it out, though; since Mabel and Dipper only talk about gender with people they actually trust – and even then, they try not to make a big deal about who’s trans and who isn’t. They’re just… they’re just Dipper and Mabel, and that should be good enough. And for almost everyone (except the occasional idiot who alerts the twins to their presence with painfully transphobic questions), it is.
Even though I’m starting to like Rebecca, I still get that uncomfortable feeling every time Robert and Rebecca share a scene together. I mean, I trust Robert and I really want him to have a good friend, but ugh, somehow I just can’t get rid of that annoying feeling when I see them together.
Okay, so I lied. This is part 2 to ‘Harry Turns 23′, which a lot of you seemed to like, however the whole thing is actually not finished and so there will be a part 3, although looking at my work schedule I don’t know when i will be able to finish it, but it will be soon, I promise! I hope you enjoy it! Also, just a warning, this does including some saucy scenes so if youre not comfortable reading that kind of stuff, you have been warned!
