I can’t get over the fact that after Saitama hits Genos’ head the light circuits on his body glow brighter slowly in the direction of his core as if he’s blushing in a weird cyborg way?? and just generally the overall cuteness of his dazed reaction is so fucking pure, I’ll never get over this scene smh its always been my favorite genos and saitama moment.
It’s like she’s some sort of clock that’s finally struck its chime and woken me from this dream we’ve been living, reminded me how many years separate me from a world I still think of as home. How unrecognizable the woman I am now would be to the woman I was then.
The same piece of music - “Harnessing Anger” - is used in both of these scenes. In the first, the scene is intercut with flashbacks of Kara losing her family/world. It is the anger of remembering that loss that enables her to defeat Red Tornado. In the second scene, no flashbacks are necessary. The stakes are clear: If Kara fails, she will never see Alex again. Here, it is the anger at the thought of losing Alex (again, her family/world), of not being able to save her sister, that gives Kara the sheer physical strength to stop the spaceship.
When Adam kissed him, it was every mile per hour Ronan had ever gone over the speed limit. It was every window-down, goose-bumps-on-skin, teeth-chattering-cold night drive. It was Adam’s ribs under Ronan’s hands and Adam’s mouth on his mouth, again and again and again. It was stubble on his lips and Ronan having to stop, to get his breath, to restart his heart. They were both hungry animals, but Adam had been starving for longer.
