But this is going to be hard because Bellamy and Clarke are so Extra about each other it’s ridiculous.
I mean there are SO MANY EXTRA MOMENTS
We’ve got THIS gem:
Bellamy sweety she was not going to drink from a poisoned cup like you didn’t need to be an Extra hoe and knock it out of her hand your feelings are showing
LITERALLY WHAT WAS THE POINT OF CHECKING HIS BANDAGE AGAIN CLARKE WHAT WAS THE POINT
there was no point she just wanted to touch bellamy’s beautiful hands and make a cute (dumb) joke
Don’t even talk to me about this fucking scene right here there was no reason for Bellamy to catch her NO REASON!
SHE IS JOGGING!!!
Girl can stop herself on her own but NOPE she HAD to run into Bellamy’s big and beautiful arms she just HAD to
tbh i would too
HE FEEDS HER THE FUCKING CHIP LIKE ???? SHE HAS HANDS ???? BUT NO HERE LEMME FEED IT TO YOU MYSELF BOO IT’LL BE GREAT, WOULD YOU LIKE SOME FONDUE WITH THAT? CHOCOLATE ??? STRAWBERRIES ??? I GOT U BABE
THIS SCENE MAKES ME LAUGH SO FUCKING HARD MR. EXTRA BELLAMY BLAKE LITERALLY CRASHED A VEHICLE BECAUSE HE WAS TOO BUSY STARING LOVINGLY AT CLARKE HEY BOB IS THIS WHAT YOU MEANT AT UNITY DAYS ABOUT BEING ANNOYED ABOUT THE SCRIPT SAYING “Bellamy stares loving at Clarke” BECAUSE YOU LITERALLY
BECAUSE OF IT
OH. MY. FUCKING. GOD.
(I WILL NEVER STOP SCREAMING ABOUT THIS SCENE)
Okay okay so those were some good scenes, but of all of them … the most Extra scene that is my FAVOURITE scene has to go to this one:
She literally THROWS herself at him. Like, that’s how happy she is to see him. I mean, compare this hug to her hug with Raven or - fuck - to her hug with Octavia, who she ALSO didn’t know was alive (and didn’t even ask her mom either???) She’s just like “oh hey octavia didn’t see you there, I thought you were dead but tbh i only ever really cared about your brother, it’s Chill tho”
SHE IS SO EXTRA ABOUT BELLAMY BLAKE OH MY GOD
This scene is just a really amazing scene because it’s so HAPPY and pure and beautiful. And it was a first in their relationship (first hug, it signalled the start of their dynamic in Season 2). So that’s why it’s my favourite Extra scene. Whether it’s the MOST Extra scene … that’s up for debate. But it’s definitely Extra, and it’s definitely amazing, so this is my answer :)
No, I’m promising you. I was there when he was born, and I never should have raised him, it should have been you. I came back to get you so you can be with him again. It’s the only reason I came back to the Island, Claire. So please, come with us. Let’s go home.
So I recently got an anonymous message asking me this question and I was preparing myself to answer with the typical “because she’s supportive and he respects her and trusts her and blah blah blah” response which definitely isn’t WRONG, and are definitely reasons why I ship Bellarke, but I also feel like it goes a lot deeper than that.
I haven’t written a good, solid meta in awhile, I feel like, and this question hit me really hard for some reason, so I am going to answer it separate from the ask in more depth. And, since I’m feeling extra, I’m probably going to make another post answering why Clarke fell in love with Bellamy because - yes - this ship goes both ways and I am sure as hell going to take every opportunity I get to prove that.
To start off, I don’t really think that there is one particular reason why Bellamy fell in love with Clarke. You can’t really go about it by saying “well, Bellamy really likes this trait and this trait and this trait - therefore, he loves Clarke because she encompasses all three” because I don’t think that’s really how love works. I do think that she has traits that Bellamy really likes and respects, and I think that’s how they became friends. But then he fell in love with her and it wasn’t just about those traits anymore. Because love isn’t selective. He doesn’t just love some parts of her and not the others. He loves Clarke as a whole, as a person. He loves all of her pieces and parts and fragments. He just loves her.
