like the best scene in the whole first season

anonymous asked:

Goku?

Why I like them
He’s fun! He’s a kind of goofy guy who’s doing his best to protect the people he cares about. He’s not all that smart but he’s got good tactics, and if you hurt someone he loves he will wreck your shit.

Why I don’t
Goku needs to communicate. Holy shit Goku use your fucking words. Half the problems in the series come from him not telling people shit, even when there’s no good reason not to. Christ.

Favorite episode (scene if movie)
Gotta say, I do really like the whole scene with the final Spirit Bomb.

Favorite season/movie
There will always be a special place in my heart for the very first arc of Dragon Ball, where Goku and Bulma and Oolong are running around looking for the Dragon Balls and where Yamcha and Pilaf were still the biggest threats to the world.

Favorite line
“Why would I want to see your dirty butt?”

Favorite outfit
Ahhh the Kame School gi! I know he always has the orange gi but I like him best when he’s got the Kame symbol.

OTP
GoChi is still my fave <3

Brotp
Goku and Everybody is my brotp! I love all his relationships!

Head Canon
Goku totally called home from King Kai’s while he was dead for 7 years. Also he definitely went and found Grandpa Gohan during that time to apologise for what he’d done and I sort of want to write a fanfic about that tbh

Unpopular opinion
Goku’s a good dad fight me

A wish
That he’d fucking grow as a person and actually work on his damn flaws TORIYAMA

An oh-god-please-dont-ever-happen
Don’t kill him off again, guys. That’s been done twice now. We’re all tired of it.

5 words to best describe them
Kinda dumb but fulla love.

My nickname for them
Hero dad, occasionally YOU FOOL

*SQUEEEEES* Can’t wait to see the whole scene. :P

Having seen this I kinda like movie!Alec’s more surprised reaction to being singled out as “the hot one” the best, but this is a whole new kinda adorable. I like it. I like it a lot. :P

I like here how Alec is at first shocked, happy, and then he’s all like, “I’m just as surprised as you are.” haha.

I really wanted Sana to be the lead but I'm really disappointed. Seriously, if I knew this is what this season would have been about then I would have rather have her not be the lead. She deserves so much better than what we're getting so far. And we're so far ahead in the season, that it feels like the ending will be rushed and unrealistic. This is disappointing ...

i was so happy when the trailer dropped!!! soso happy and then the first episode I was like YES!!! because that episode was good and I feel like a lot of muslims felt it was relatable, (im not the best to say anything about it because im not muslim so im sorry if I say something that I shouldn’t say), and there were good moments of the season so far, like the det beste fra islam was such a good clip!!!! SO good!! in all aspects, it is one of my favourite scenes from the WHOLE show.

But it really makes me sad that the muslim fans are feeling very badly represented right now, which sucks so bad because this season is for them, and the only reason i have been educated is not even because of the show itself but because of the lovely muslim fans that have been amazing to educate all of us in really important topics and also clarifying us a lot of things. 

And everything is being so messy, like tbh i’ve enjoying a lot about this season but now things are just so so so messy, so messy, and i dont want to be negative in any way but im disappointed at this. we have less than 4 episodes now, and we have SO SO SO many questions that need to be answered. And like you said im very afraid the ending will be rushed, really really afraid.

And same anon same, sana deserves SO SO SO much better.

My favorite thing about this scene is how clearly Fitz is trying to downplay the date, and - maybe this is more headcanon than meta - but I suspect he’s doing it for a specific reason. He knows Jemma so well, better than she knows herself sometimes, and he knows even before getting to the restaurant how touched she would be by his actions. Jemma, her inclination towards understatement and suppression notwithstanding, is something of a romantic, which Fitz knows well (he’s present at both of the season 1 moments above, in addition to having the experience of almost a decade of their best friendship). So her instinct in this scene is to want the whole thing to fit this sort of idealistic image she has of what their date should be like - and in her head, everything fits except for her

Fitz knows that she’s just barely holding on, and his goal here is not for this to be a perfect first date, but to show Jemma what they have to look forward to. To help her “feel human” again, like she did for him. But he also knows that he’s toeing a delicate line with Jemma’s mental state at the moment, and so he undercuts the romantic aspects of his actions by trying to stop her from pointing them out. He dismisses her attempt to point out the fact that he held a table for six months while he searched for her, and when she doesn’t know how to reciprocate his (arguably intentionally nonchalant) declaration of “what else was I gonna do?” he tells her outright that he’s not expecting anything from her in return. In the best way he knows how, he’s grumping in order to try to make the night about her, and not about his actions. 

(Of course, I also think that Fitz genuinely underestimates how meaningful his actions are, and how much they mean to Jemma - and how disappointed she is in herself for not being able to live up to her own expectations of “the perfect date” on her first night out.)

anonymous asked:

(i love the dream scene too) but explain why you love it so much and why its the greatest thing? i understand that it implies heavily that he is dereks anchor, and he thinks of him while he was shot, but why else?

Well you just opened Pandora’s Box and since you did so I’m gonna actually make a huge post out of this where I’ll explain why The Dream Scene makes me wanna commit homicide. (I apologize for not putting this under a read more but it’s easier to read it this way)

Firstly, let me tell you where I’m coming from and why it had such a huge impact on me in the first place and how never in my life have I reacted so…bodily? to something? ever? to any series ever? I’m a pathetic piece of shit? 

For the whole of 3b I expected something out of sterek. The potential was huge, angst and tragedy everywhere, Derek was acting accordingly (concerned and trying to find solutions instead of downright killing him), Stiles was in mortal danger, all of a sudden Derek was the king, the stars were aligned for the best scene ever and then-

The loft scene was not what I expected, the derek vs nogitsune didn’t deliver, Aiden died and Stiles and Derek were in the same open space for the first time but I didn’t believe anything would happen anyway and so on. I put my whole faith in the last episode (much like I’m putting it now) because I knew that Derek and Stiles had to have some kind of interaction or some lines exchanged because all the Derek foreshadowing wasn’t for nothing goddammit. But then the episode was nearing the end and nothing happened and I started to panic because it was either nothing or the best sterek scene ever (because honestly last 3 minutes of a season, it had to be something good and important and I almost started losing hope because it would be too big even for sterek). But then LO AND BEHOLD

Full body shots, Stiles and Derek in a locker room with the pretty lights and I just- lost it.

At that point, their scenes weren’t part of the surface plot, didn’t have anything to do directly with their characters, it was all foreshadowing. But now, The Dream Scene was a huge step towards sterek and it cemented important things that had to do directly with Derek’s character.

Now I’ll go technical on this:

  • The Lighting

—-Warm hues (yellow, red, orange, pink) generally allude to happiness, security, lightness, romance, eroticism, you get the point. When combined with sterek, it’s about security, sense of safety, trust, lightness.

—-The fact that it takes place at sunset symbolizes the end of a cycle and the beginning of another, it’s about a positive change in one’s life (ie change of anchor, alliance, trust, sides you name it)

—-The light coming from behind Stiles and the sides means depth and salvation in this case (love interest is on the list too but we’ll get there)

  • Body language and postures

Stiles takes the adviser’s position (I’d love for this to be emissary foreshadowing), arms crossed, Derek has all his attention, he is uncharacteristically serious and still, he believes him and he’s patient with Derek (that ‘Okay. What happened?’ kills me). I’ll go overboard and ask you to notice how his hands are either hidden or he’s fidgeting, so you can’t count his fingers. In any other context this would mean that Stiles is hiding something or lying, but here the real reason is obvious. It’s a dream, the illusion is still there. 

Derek is showing distress, which is not something that he does in front of others. He’s open and vulnerable and he actually talks about his fears. Of course he has no reason to be afraid of Stiles but he’s unguarded, head down, fidgeting, standard Derek thinking position.  

When Stiles sits, it’s in front of Derek. Now let’s compare this to Scott and Peter.

When Scott and Derek have that heartwarming conversation in the locker room (I think it was 4x04), we see Derek taking the role of the adviser and sitting down next to Scott. This means equality, going through the same things, team work, understanding one another, partnership, you catch my drift.

When we see Peter and Derek’s exchange in the locker room, back in 3x08, talking about Paige, Peter is the adviser and he is standing, behind Derek, out of sight, looming over him. This is obviously manipulation, hiding and lying. The following events are a testimony.

Now, Stiles and Derek are mirroring each other which is extremely important. Don’t forget that this is also all in Derek’s head so this means that he is the one that sees things this way. Mirroring happens between very close people, like family, close friends, couples and so on. So clearly, for Derek, Stiles is not only an equal, but also he’s the person that he latched onto (for lack of a better word).

Stiles’ stance is also very interesting, but it’s quite hard to speculate because we don’t see his whole body. I might be over-analyzing this, but hey, let’s have fun with it. Far as I can tell, he’s resting his elbows on his knees, while one of his legs should be between Derek’s legs because their facing each other. So his arms are paralleled and so are his legs, so basically this means wall or isolation.

Stiles is acting like a shield between reality and illusion.

The illusion is shattered when Derek takes Stiles’ hand and counts his fingers. It’s very interesting that he did that in the first place. Hands are very important in tw and they have a lot to do with anchoring (darachmoon made a post about it and you should go read it if you want to fully understand the extent of this scene and the importance of it).

  • Angles

I question my existence when Stiles sits down because who the ever loving fuck filmed that scene like that and thought it was ok to add that to the sterek ”platonic” chart.

My shippers goggles are off I swear, but jfc, this is so intimate. Why is it so zoomed in on their faces??? Is it there to give me heartache??? I think it is. 

No but for real. The angle here is too closed in on Stiles’ face for it to be anything but perceived as romantic. I’m sorry, I kept my mouth shut at the lighting, at the dream meaning (which I’ll cover in a second), at the context, but dude, give a dying girl a break. Then there’s the fact that Stiles is the emotional focus and while, that’s a very good thing, it shouldn’t make any sense here, because this is all from Derek’s pov and he’s not even looking at him. The audience is shown a very concerned and close to Derek’s face Stiles. I’ll take it. And you can pry it from my cold dead hands.

  • Locker room meaning as a dream and for Derek in general

The locker room has always been Derek’s safety place and cooling off place. He also had quite a few realizations here (about Paige and Scott mainly). So to have Stiles there with him, alone, and him being in such a vulnerable state, is an amazing testimony of trust. He was even shown to anchor himself in the locker room before (4x02).

Locker rooms, as far as dream meanings go, represent cooling off places, secure places, change, and surprise surprise, pursue of a love interest. So there’s that.

  • An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge or A Dead Man’a Dream

The very fact that this scene was inspired from somewhere, tells us that it’s important and that we should pay attention to it. The story is basically about a dying man that seeks out his wife and kids but it turns out that it was all a dream and in the end he dies. Who is Derek seeking out in his dream? That’s right. Canon.

  • Kate vs Stiles

Let’s talk about how this put Stiles and Kate at polar opposites. Derek is faced with his living nightmare and seeks out Stiles in his mind.

Bad vs Good.

Reality vs Illusion. 

Sucky real life vs safe dream.

Kate vs Stiles.

It’s also interesting how in this season we have two more instances where the focus is on the two of them.

  • The scene itself

Watch the last 3 minutes or so without the dream scene. Did you get the same information out of it? Of course you did because the dream scene doesn’t give us any information. At best this was an explanation for Kate being alive and she could have been introduced in any other manner, there was no use for the whole sterek let’s be honest. So the very fact that it exists is a huge deal.

So yeah. Say it with me.

Canon.

"I can take care of him. Let me take care of him."

This entire scene is so heartbreaking for so many reasons, the acting, the news, and how everyone handles it. And I think Mickey surprised everyone by his vehement refusal to let anyone take Ian away from him. I just wanted to explore this a little more. 

TW:  Mentions of Suicide, Bipolar Disease, and brief mention of homophobia.

The relationship between Clarke and Lexa was such a slow burn, Lexa had so much respect, admiration and love for Clarke. Lexa was a well written three-dimensional character in a position of power, and a lesbian, unheard of.

For the first time in my life I was excited about a canon lesbian ship, I allowed myself to hope and believe in equal representation.

I now feel foolish that I was excited, that I allowed myself to be excited for episode 3x07.

I replayed the kiss scene and the love scene several times because I was so happy, I was on an emotional high. The whole first half of season 3 had been leading to this moment. The acting, especially by Alycia Debnam Carey was impeccable & raw with emotion. It is one of the best, if not the best lesbian kiss scenes I have ever seen.

Lexa’s death occurring immediately after Clexa consummated their love feels intentionally gut wrenching, it feels like it was purposefully meant to cause trauma & pain. It sends a message that our love is unnatural and that there are violent consequences for our misconduct.

I feel violated, betrayed.

When Lexa was shot I felt actual physical pain in my chest. It was triggering, I am struggling.

When I was 17 my girlfriend died in a car accident, I grieved for a long time, it was years before I was able to function again, I am not the same person I was before, it changed me.

I am fortunate to live in Canada and yet still I am afraid, I am afraid to be myself.

I am afraid for my future I am afraid I might get attacked or even killed for something as small as walking down the street holding my wife’s hand, or of being passed over for a job because of my sexual orientation.

The entrenched culture of fear and the longing for lesbian representation, good representation in the media is not something you can understand if you are heterosexual. We look to the media for validation & acceptance, but instead we are repeatedly told that we do not deserve happiness.

Our love is portrayed as doomed and tragic.

Lexa gave me hope and she was so violently taken away, I’m not okay.  

Representation matters.

So I came across this cute selfie of Peybrina on the set (based on the outfits, its Texas 3 during the “Riley, Maya, Lucas” Cory freakout). And besides Peybrina being cute, I also noticed the back of the classroom bulletin board: “History of Communication”. Like okay, realllll subtle Michael Jacobs, I see you there. Very obviously intentional. So I went back to look at when it first appears. It’s not in Season 1. And it doesn’t show up in Season 2 until Girl Meets the New Teacher (there’s a different bulletin board before this episode). Most of that episode takes place in the English classroom, except for the end scene in the history classroom, and that’s where we first see this bulletin board. But what scene takes place directly before the history class? The whole ‘Archie metaphor’ bay window scene (”Well this dark haired girl and this blonde girl both like the same boy and they all stay best friends. Could that really happen?” “Nahh”Okay…”). This is basically the first time the impending Rucaya triangle is mentioned by the show (even if metaphorically). And what comes after New Teacher? Belief (technically in production order) or Yearbook (in air date order). Two episodes not just strongly hinting at Rucaya stuff, but human communication in general (working with each other on projects, Maya keeping the brother secret, etc). So I’m feeling pretty confident the timing of the bulletin board is super significant.

Anyway, as of Texas 3, it’s still up there. I’m guessing it’ll be up there through the end of the season (until Rucaya resolution in Legacy).

Just wanted to point out the most likely intentional timing of this to show that TV is not accidental. Wardrobe, set, etc. can have meaning (obviously sometimes a shirt is just a shirt).

DELETED SCENE BECAUSE OF JOHNLOCK!

This should not be just promo photos for season 3. This must be deleted scene! 

But they probable should meet in restaurant with Mary first, as we have seen. So what is this act? This is before their first meeting either, or after. This looks like John dreaming about Sherlock, or Sherlock observing John. 

The last picture is John  surprised his own imagination, or John in shock, when see his dead best friend. 

Why they cut this? Why only promo photos? Maybe it was too GAY for this season. That’s the reason indeed, why we’ve seen only one deleted scene from whole season 3 (Magnussen). Because everything else we will see extra in future bonuses. Probably after season four or five :DDD
