I remember visiting this town a long time ago before I ever considered making Dream Diaries, and I must say, it’s just as breathtaking now as it was the first time I visited. Everything flows so wonderfully, and you can see that as you explore this wonderful Fall wonderland for hours on end!
Who are your favourite Hufflepuff characters in other fandoms other than Harry Potter?? 💙
OOH, that’s a hard one.
My favorite other fandom Hufflepuff is Mako from Kill la Kill. I love her SO MUCH.
Other favorite Hufflepuff characters are Tiana (Princess and the Frog), Gamagori (Kill la Kill), Samwise Gamgee (LOTR), Anna (Frozen), Aang (ATLA), and Cinderella (specifically from the 2015 live action Disney movie)
Favorite and least favorite of these This Is Us characters and why: Jack, Rebecca, Randall, Kevin, Kate, Beth, Toby, William, Miguel.
From a writing standpoint they are all wonderfully written characters. Well developed, well rounded, every single one of them brings something different to the show. It’s balanced on all levels and I think that’s extremely rare.
Personally, I guess my least favorite would be Rebecca? She just tends to irritate me occasionally, and I don’t feel the emotional levity from her that I feel from a lot of the other characters.
My favorite characters are Randall and Kevin. Randall because he is just SUCH an important character for television in general and the subjects that are tackled (and overcome) through him are truly moving and inspiring. Kevin because I think his character is ALSO so real in a totally different and flawed way, not to mention the actor is fantastic and his growth arc is turning out to be pretty beautiful.
Key: If I am anxious
about something personal, I keep it to myself until I see Minho and the
words just fly out of my mouth before I even notice. He doesn’t tell me
what to do but instead he just hugs me and tells me that he’ll be there
if I ever need him. Because of his words, I will always feel a little
better after I talk to him.
A lot of people apparently think it’s a valid statement when they say that Stiles and Derek hated each other, and I wholeheartedly say,you’re wrong.
I’d like to call this my masterpost for proof that Stiles and Derek did, indeed, care for one another very much. I may not list all, but I will list the ones I find the most notable:
1. Stiles getting in Chris Argent’s face about Kate and what Kate did to Derek and his family. A lot of people look pass this scene, just a mere glance, but it truly caught my attention. I don’t think this has ever been addressed by Stiles before this scene, but in a part of Formality, Chris began questioning Stiles on what he had to do to tame Scott (trying to argue for why werewolves should be taken down) and Stiles brought up the Hale fire and immediately got upset and rather infuriated at what had happened. He knew what Kate did, knew what it did to Derek and it got to him. And that’s what got to me.
2. The iconic pool scene.
Firstly, Derek told Stiles to go protect himself, ready to fight by himself.
Now, of course, Stiles did not listen.
Secondly- wait, do I really need to explain why this scene is so important?
Stiles went back for Derek, who he claimed to hate, and saved him, kept him from drowning. (Totally screwed up his phone in the process but whateves.)
This is still one of the most notable Sterek scenes.
3. Derek saving Stiles from getting killed by Isaac.
4. Derek also protected Stiles from Peter in the hospital scene.
5. This scene.
What really got me about this one is that Stiles wasn’t that close to Boyd. He hardly even knew Boyd, but what he did know was how much Boyd meant to Derek.
What he knew was that Derek needed comfort, and he gave it in the slightest way.
It wasn’t much, just a hand on the shoulder, but he did it. He did it and this scene showed that he cared, that he was there for Derek.
6. Derek trusting Stiles over his own girlfriend.
Not to mention that later on in the episode, when Jennifer stated that she could be the only one to take them to Stiles’ dad, Derek went into full attack mode.
7. Derek being protective over Stiles, ready to chase after him because he knew what Stiles was going to do would be risky.
8. The elevator scene.
Reminder that this scene was an episode after the argument they had, on the same day and possibly an hour apart at most.
What really got me about this scene was the worry on Stiles’ face when he saw Derek laying there. He just stopped all together for a moment before moving in to help.
The evident panic in his voice as he kept on telling Derek to wake up just warmed my heart.
9. Derek was incredibly hesitant in taking Stiles down while the Nogistune had taken over him. He hardly even suggested it.
10. Stiles worrying about Derek in season 4, after he got taken. He even refused to leave without finding Derek.
11. Stiles hesitating to go save his own best friend because Derek was close to dying.
This one scene basically saved season 4. This one scene broadcasted just how much Stiles truly cares for Derek.
Guys, he hesitated to save his own best friend. Understand how major that is.
Stiles only left when Derek told him to go, demanded it, and even than he still wasn’t sure and looked back once more before going.
This scene was so significant, probably the most significant Sterek scene ever.
12. Everyone looking at Stiles before Derek left.
This may not seem like a big deal, but I take this as his friends understanding just how much Derek means to him. He had to watch Derek walk away and I feel like they got it, it just clicked.
13. Stiles smiling at Derek’s initials.
The fact that something as simple as Derek’s initials had Stiles stopping just to smile really means something.
And if that wasn’t enough to prove how much he missed Derek, remember the following episode when Scott brought Derek up?
Stiles’ pause and the look on his face and the look on Scott’s face like he knew something, knew that Derek meant more to Stiles than Stiles was saying.
14. Stiles is Derek’s anchor.
This is important.
An anchor being someone you feel safe and secure around, someone who can pull you back, someone meaningful.
Stiles was that for Derek, and if that’s not enough to prove just how much Derek cares for and appreciates Stiles, I don’t know what is.
In conclusion, you can say whatever you want about Sterek but do not deny how important they were to each other. It’s ridiculous and not even an argument. In the beginning, they probably hated each other but now? You’re only playing yourself if you’re really trying to argue that they mean nothing to each other.
Alec's reaction to Magnus magic was hysterical though. He was just like whoopsie, better lean sideways. I'm excited they don't show him intimidated though! Even though he probably couldn't defend himself against general magic on longer distances, right?
Anonymous said: Alec’s face in that gif when he dodges the magic though it’s like “yeah, okay, okay, I deserved that.” I’m crying.
HONESTLY LMAO he just kind of leaned to the side it was great. I’m sure Alec can defend himself just fine tbh; it’s magic, but he’s a Shadowhunter and an archer at that so long distance fighting is his specialty. Plus, he certainly knows how to duck.
Alec knows he deserved it tho for sure ajfowaj tbh I am loving that they’re already a bit like a married couple. I mean, a very powerful married couple, but still one. Like, can you imagine tho with all their powers how their bickering might go?
Alec drawing a silence rune on Magnus’s phone when it keeps ringing off the hook while they’re trying to make out
Alec’s keyboard suddenly typing WE WERE SUPPOSED TO LEAVE FOR DINNER AN HOUR AGO DARLING and he looks up and Magnus is there, casually leaning against the door frame studying his nails but Alec can see the smirk on his lips
Magnus plinking Alec with a little ball of magic, like the warlock version of throwing crumpled paper at someone
Alec glamouring a file Magnus has been going through all night so that it just says NO on all 50 pages; Magnus gets the message and comes to bed finally (Alec casually goes, How’s your research? and gets nicely pinned by a warlock for his trouble.)
I just really like the idea of the way they interact being amplified because of they’re both supernatural beings. And maybe to mortals looking in it seems a little bit startling, but to them it’s perfectly normal. Those are my favorite sort of details because these two aren’t human and I love being reminded of that. I hope we see them use their powers in petty and domestic ways alike, not just for saving the world.
