looking afar

Like all characters, Pharah and Mercy’s personalities are heavily tied into how they play in the game. Pharah is a protector, who views the battlefield from afar. She looks at the bigger picture and aims to protect as many as possible. Mercy is a saviour, on the other hand, and focuses on one person at a time. She comes rushing to their aid and saves people one by one. She focuses on saving people on a personal level. 

Pharah is heavily tied to the concept of justice. Meanwhile, Mercy is obviously tied to, well, mercy. These qualities are heavily linked to one another, and compliment one another. Without mercy, justice can be ruthless and uncaring, as we see Pharah be in her comic. But without justice, mercy becomes enabling, too forgiving of flaws. You could argue that Mercy is more about quick fixes, easing the pain in the moment, whereas Pharah aims to remove the cause of the pain to begin with, more detached from those she saves. This too is informed by how they play, and how we see them depicted in the trailer (both inspiring, but in different ways).

Justice and mercy are dependent on each other. They are both needed in equal measure. In the game, we see that Mercy is most effective when there is a Pharah she can fly away to, stay airborne beside, and reach many more people from such a vantage point. And Pharah, who is so far away from the nitty gritty of battles, yet makes an easy target, is most effective when there is a Mercy not only looking after her and patching her up, but powering her up as well. 

As such, a Pharmercy combo aids both of them in their goals. With a Mercy helping her, Pharah can soar higher, deal more damage to wrongdoers, and stay alive longer so that she may protect more people. With a Pharah helping her, Mercy can escape danger, see the wounded from afar, and expand her reach so that she may save more.

Protecting and saving. Justice and mercy. Pharmercy is not just a combo with great game mechanics, but also a combo for their ideals, purposes, personality. Together they can soar higher and do more in order to protect and save humanity. That is the true strength of this ship, and that is why it is so incredibly real.

me: nvm. imma look from afar. I never had a chance. I played myself. pathetic.

ok so that new clip, to me, just confirms my theories and even takes them a step further:

  • isak is sana’s mirror
  • the similarities are highlighted so much it’s suspicious 
  • i still think yousef will not be the love interest, ultimately (sana likes him, no doubt, but i’m still not convinced he likes her like that)
  • because even and isak’s journey so far is paralleled a lot in sana’s story
  • but julie knows how to use parallels, both to foreshadow and surprise us
  • in s3, we had a ton of r+j parallels very early on which led people to think isak or even was going to die or their couple would end tragically
  • but in the end we got a “pretty woman” ending
  • the parallels were there to set us up for something and eventually surprise us by twisting the ending
  • so i think julie is setting us up here for an evak-style yousana
  • girl likes boy, girl looks at him from afar, boy seems flirty, theyll end up together and happy and the boy will be all doe-eyed and “i noticed you immediately”
  • but that’s not what we will get
  • i’m not sure WHAT we’ll get eventually but i really think julie is setting us up here so she can surprise us, pull the rug
  • and the mikael thing is partly a distraction, partly a blatant plot point: but not the one we’re expecting
  • we’re expecting mikael to be a huge subplot with even
  • i think it is a subplot with even but i also think mikael will become very important in sana’s primary plot
  • mikael is taking more and more space in sana’s environment
  • just in that “yousef” clip, it was more actually about mikael
  • and when sana was staring at his pictures, we got the camera move up to mikael
  • sana is not looking directly at him but he is there, and he is taking more and more space in her literal and metaphorical visual field
  • and that julie is distracting us because she knew we would recognise mikael, mari “accidentally” made yousef’s fb public before the trailer so we “accidentally” saw the pictures of the balloon squad with mikael
  • this fandom is an internet one, they know this
  • this is not a TV show where active fandom online is not addressed or only in jokes, SKAM built its entire marketing on the internet
  • julie herself said “if you knew how hard it’s been to keep you on your toes”
  • julie is distracting us by waving mikael as an evak subplot right at us
  • while in the background, she’s setting him up to be a big part of the main sana plot
  • she’s showing us all these parallels between evak and yousana
  • but there is parallel and there is copy
  • and so far it’s bordering on a copy of the evak plot and that’s suspicious
  • i do believe in a happy ending with a happy sana
  • but i don’t believe it’ll be a yousana one

I saw you today…I see you everyday, but today you had this type of glow…a glow that I want. You were smiling about something your friends said… your dimples shined when you smiled, I wanted to be the reason behind that smile

But I can’t…so I’ll just look at you from afar, wondering what would happen if I told you how much I loved you

I made a Sacred Stonesona? Idk it just happened cause I love the twins so much…

She’s a Renais castle maid who escapes with either one of the twins (I’m thinking Eirika?). No name yet. She’s a Cleric whose canon promotion is Valkyrie but is afraid of riding horses… (She loves animals but horse riding seems just…too…high and dangerous to her)

I wanted to go along with FE8 aesthetics more but I ended up designing her whatever way I wanted… Feel free to join me in SSsona hehe~

It was quite an interesting life you led. You were dating Kim Namjoon, a young successful writer who had his own publishing company. He was dashing and smart who treated you like a queen. People knew you had met him from your current boss Kim Seokjin. He was handsome and sexy, kind of an asshole but for some reason that worked for him. They had met in college, hating each other, competing against each other for grades, girlfriends, money, anything with an eyesight of each other. That was until one day they were assigned to be partners for a project in class. They had fought against it but surprisingly to them, they ended up liking each other. So much so that they ended up in bed together even more than that, they’ve been dating since.

thedeadsoldierproxy : Heyy! Im not sure if you’ve already done this but can you write a ‘when they see a guy flirting with you’ yas a jealous reaction cuz I love it when guys are scared of losing their girl~ Thx Darls

Same. I like seeing when boy is all angry and scared of losing gf because most of them are not like showing their feelings ><

I hope that this would fulfil your requirements. ~~

He is confident. He know that there’s no one that can beat him in handsomest and in being your bf. Still he would watch carefully you two. Jealously would be more stroneger then him. If the boy didn’t want to leave you alone, he would come and take you from him.

“I’m way more handsome than him. Nothing to be worried.But  I think that I have to show him where is his place.”

Yoongi

Okay, so I feel sorry for guy which would be so brave to flirt with Yoongi gf. He won’t come to you and him. Just looking from afar giving this guy killing glares. When boy catched this, fear would grip him and run away before Min Genius Suga would get him.

“What the fuck he thinks he is doing? He better take a step back or I’ll kill him. You have 3 seconds to start being invisible”

Dissgusted. Looking from afar on you two would make him even more. He would come closer, looked with killing sight and give him “hints” that you’re taken and it would be better for him to leave.

“I’m sorry what did he just say? Maybe you wanna tell my this again?”

Namjoon

Not even bother his head about giving hints or killing glare. He would go straight to you and confront this guy which have enough confidence to hit on his girl. He wanted to paraded to you too,tbh.

“God of destrucion is coming you lil shit”

Jimin

Originally posted by minpuffs

At first he would feel awkard. He knew that you won’t make steps to flirt with this random guy so he would wait but when he saw that he’s making you uncomfortable, mad Jimin would show. Coming closer to you and him. Chim combed his hair with his fingers and stared at guy when he was talking to you.

“Babe. Who’s he? Why’re you talking with my girl?”

Taehyung

Originally posted by kim-taehyung

He’s cute and all adorable. But when he sees someone is trying to hit on his girl “angry Tae mode on”. Maybe he won’t be aggressive but he would try to humble this guy with words and show him that you’re his.

“Really? You are trying to flirt with my girl with this pick up lines? You wretched guy, not today.”  - this “not today” it supposed to be a joke ha ha.. Ikr, not funny

Jungkook

Evil maknae. No one can hit on to his girl. NO ONE. So he would come to you, put his hands around your waist, looking at the guy with anger painted on his face. Jungkookie would be ready to fight over you if this would be needed. In his mind would show - “Oh man. This could be fun”

“Do I looke easy to beat? I’m Golden Maknae bro. Better go away before I kick your ass”

I really want casual malec flirting. Like everyone’s working on something and, barely even realising, they just start flirting with each other, not caring that there are a load of people around

I do love you. I still love you.
I will never tell you that, though. There’s no use. Our time is over. Telling myself this is most difficult when I see you. When you speak to me. When I see you at that bar neither of us
gave up since our break up or the corner gas station. I hate how small this town is. I love you though.

You’re still so sweet to me. You say hello, with that smile that could melt thin air. Your eyes still look at me the same. Or is it that I only still choose to look at them the same? My heart beats out of my chest, if you looked hard enough you’d see it. You say hello, then we have a short conversation. But my heart knows no boundaries. My words are homesick and miss you being their home. I love you and my heart can’t keep secrets. So when we say goodbye, there’s nothing more my heart wants than to grab your hand and tell you I love you. I miss my lips on your forehead before you’d leave. Remember that?

I can’t say I love you. But I can’t say goodbye.
So instead I cope with this by using any other three word phrase. See you later, take care now, until next time. It’s saying it, without saying it. Those three words, each word replacing the ones I wish I could still use. I’m getting better at it. I’m getting better at loving you from afar.

You looked beautiful tonight,
You were never one to wear white. You’d always wear black. At least with me. You’ve curled your hair in a way I’ve never seen before. A bit more messy, good messy. You looked so alive. I’m glad we’re both still in this small town I hate, running into each other every now and then. Because you make me feel alive too.

“Until next time.”
