not necessarily romantically though

The both of them are together again. Alone this time, but is cements how the two of them are together, not necessarily platonically or romantically. Though you know Lie is never without Nora, and vice versa. Though right now, the two are simply enjoying each other’s company, and the efforts it took to get everyone out alive. The guilt would eat them if the Nuckelavee had killed one of RNJR+Qrow. Everyone’s okay, and the two are better now that the greatest nightmare from their childhood is gone, and they don’t have to worry about any more lives being taken by it.

He’s smiling at her. He’s relieved to see they both made it out, and the thought’s still fresh in his mind. Nora has accepted and relished in this fact, now her mind is past everything and enjoying the present. Both expressions are soft and relieved. Ren’s still looking at her with love strewn over his face, whether it be astonishment over his best friend or crush/lover. 

The love in her face is simply there, and it is known she has a crush on Lie, so she seems like a schoolgirl who had her love reciprocated. She’s so happy, and the way her eyebrows contort, highlighting how her smile, blush and eyes light up make this mood perfect. 

Lie looks back, and he’s lit up as well. His eyes brighten, and a larger smile than we’ve seen before graces his face. Their hands are holding now, and its an invitation to a new step in their relationship. It’s confirmation they both have grown from their experience. It’s a bigger way of saying he wants to continue his adventure with Nora. It’s saying he loves her back.

Nora Valkyrie and Lie Ren. You’ve never seen them without the other. A happy, strong girl with the biggest heart, and a silent, moving boy with a calming presence. Together-together in whatever way you want to say it. The two are armed and ready with each other at their side, ready to take and give strength. And they couldn’t imagine it without the other,

My life rule: If someone gets an enchanted rose for me, I will probably love them forever.

For anyone who doesn’t know: White Day is a holiday celebrated in Japan, S. Korea and Taiwan on March 14th. In these countries, Valentine’s Day is just for women to give gifts (usually chocolate) to men, though not necessarily in a romantic context; White Day is when the men return the favor.

Xiumin: Minseok is confident you’ll like his gift package, which he plans on giving to you when the two of you go out for a quiet lunch. While you’re eating, he casually mentions it being White Day, preparing to smoothly segue into the gift-giving and confession, and you say you’re just glad it’s customary to give hard candy instead of chocolate.

“Why’s that?” he asks, confused.

“I’m allergic, remember?”

He makes up an excuse to go to the bathroom with his bag so he can carefully remove all the pieces of chocolate from the package. He can’t believe he forgot the girl he likes has a food allergy.

After some deliberation, he decides to go for it anyway, showing up at your door in the afternoon with a bouquet of chocolate roses and a warm smile.

“I would have bought real flowers, but you deserve something as sweet as you,” he says in his usual painfully cheesy way.

“I appreciate the thought,” you say, “but I’m severely allergic to chocolate.”

“Oh god,” he says, laughing at his own stupidity. “I’m so sorry.”

Lay: The thing is, Yixing knows you’re allergic to chocolate. He may be forgetful, but he retains the important things, and he considers anything about you important. He gives you candy, serenades you with heartfelt acoustic songs, and gazes soulfully into your eyes as he confesses his true feelings. It’s a perfect evening.

…right up until you find out that the white chocolate truffles contained traces of actual cocoa, and what started off as a nice enough date ends with your new boyfriend taking you to the hospital to be treated for anaphylactic shock. Maybe he should’ve read the ingredients more carefully.

Baekhyun: Baekhyun doesn’t bother being coy. He asks you straightforwardly if you want to go on a date with him that night. It’s only after you accept that he starts strategizing, thinking about how he can win you over and score a second date. Figuring Yixing is the romantic type and would know what to do, he runs his plan by him first.

“The Pepero thing might be cheesy, but it’s cute, right? She likes cute things,” says Baekhyun, figuring you wouldn’t have agreed to go on a date with him if you didn’t.

“Isn’t she allergic to chocolate?” says Yixing.

“Seriously? Aish.”

Chen: Jongdae will be the first to admit that he isn’t much of a romantic. He would rather do something nice for you than try to woo you with gifts, to show that he cares and will look out for you. He offers to run errands with you, and you accept, happy to have the help and company.

While he’s cheerfully helping you buy groceries, he lingers near a shelf filled with candy, remembering how you gave him something for Valentine’s and he hasn’t returned the favor. He starts to reach for some chocolates as he calls your name.

“It’s White Day, you should let me buy you something,” he says.

“Sure,” you say, then notice what he’s holding. “But not those. I’m allergic.”

He’s a little embarrassed about the slip-up, but he gets over it.

Chanyeol: When he first gets to the store, Chanyeol is sure he knows what candy you like. Then he ends up staring blankly at the shelves, feeling like he’s forgetting something important. Something about chocolate? Hmm. Maybe it’s that you don’t like chocolate. He immediately dismisses the thought; everyone likes chocolate. That’s probably it–chocolate must be your favorite. He has a whole box of chocolates sent to you, along with a note that doesn’t outright say how he feels, but subtly hints toward it.

You call him when you get the gift.

“Do you like it?” he asks, sounding both excited and nervous.

“It’s really nice, but you know I can’t eat chocolate.”

Oh, that’s what he was forgetting. Awkward.

D.O: Okay, Kyungsoo has it all planned out perfectly. He’s going to bake you a cake. Not a large one, mind you, but a mini devil’s food cake. Chocolate on chocolate. Moist and fluffy and decadent. It’s going to be the best damn cake you’ve ever seen, and when you eat it, the deliciousness might just kill you.

He’s just finished frosting it when Minseok stops by to grab a drink from the fridge and asks what that’s for.

“I’m giving it to (y/n) for White Day,” says Kyungsoo.

“Probably not a good idea.” At Kyungsoo’s confused look, he says, “She’s really allergic, didn’t you know?”

On second thought, maybe he doesn’t want a cake that might kill you.

Kai: Painfully shy beneath his cool exterior, Jongin is probably too nervous to do a big elaborate confession. He remembers what you got him for Valentine’s Day and decides to give you something simple in return, just to let you know he was thinking about you.

He’s flustered when he hands you to the gift, saying, “It’s not much, but I didn’t want to burden you with something too expensive.”

His nervous babbling is adorable, so you feel kind of bad having to tell him you can’t eat the chocolate he gave you because of your allergy.

“Ahhh! Sorry, I should’ve known.”

Sehun: Actually, Sehun doesn’t really plan on confessing today. He’s been playing it safe, hoping that if you like him then you’ll make the first move, and if you don’t, he can avoid embarrassing himself.

The two of you are hanging out when he gets one of his cravings, so you stop for bubble tea. You both get your drinks, and as you’re walking out the door he offers you some of his.

“Oh, thanks, but it’s chocolate, and I’m allergic.”

He pauses and looks down at his drink, then walks over and tosses it into the bin so he can buy a different flavor. He likes chocolate, but he’d rather be able to share with you.

Thanks for this request, anon. It was really cute. :) Hopefully you like it!

If there’s one moment where Korra consciously recognizes herself in Kuvira, I feel like this is it – she looks surprised, as if she’s seeing Kuvira clearly for the first time.

She subconsciously acted on her sense of familiarity before, of course (she wouldn’t have jumped in front of that spirit cannon otherwise!), but I think this is the first time she’s able to understand why she reacted that way.

Also, the new spirit portal’s colors are gold and green, likely representing the Avatar and Kuvira… I mean, why else would half of the DNA beam be green?

There’s so much great symbolism here that it would be a pity if it just gets ignored by the creators moving forward.  =(

The Fate of Ben Solo and Rey

To say that Rey and Ben Solo are bound to each other doesn’t necessarily mean in a romantic aspect (though I’m not opposed to this), this simply means that their destinies are intertwined. I know that there must be lots of Starwars fans that are saying that Kylo Ren is way past the point of being redeemable, what with him killing Han Solo, but if you notice certain details in the dialogues and book, it may not be so difficult to believe that Ben Solo still has a shot at returning. Here are just some of the details that I managed to pick up from watching the film and reading the novelisation:

Kylo Ren somehow knows something about who Rey is:
- It’s first hinted when Lieutenant Mitaka reports to Kylo Ren about Finn and BB-8 being accompanied by a girl. Though Lieutenant Mitaka never even mentions her name, Kylo Ren suddenly seems to have an idea about who Mitaka is talking about, and immediately acts aggressively to the Lieutenant, “Kylo Ren’s voice took on a timbre lower and more meaning than any the lieutenant had ever heard. ‘What—girl?’” 

- This is further seen when Kylo Ren and Rey first meet in the forest of Takodana. “Something.” he sounded mystified, “There is something…Who are you?” he asks her, right before rendering her unconscious and whisking her off Takodana and to Starkiller base. 

- Finally in their battle on Starkiller Base, Kylo Ren outright states that he does recognise her somehow, though they’ve supposedly never met prior to Takodana. “‘It is you,’ Ren murmured. His words unsettled her: Not for the first time, he seemed to know more about her than she did about herself.

Kylo Ren’s reluctance to hurt Rey:
- Rey was captured by Kylo Ren upon the attack in Maz Kanata’s cantina, and was later taken onboard his ship to be interrogated just as Poe Dameron had been when Kylo Ren captured him in Jakku. The main difference: Kylo Ren’s approach to interrogating the two heroes and how each of them are referred to in his interactions with them when they were both captives. 

- The sith-in-training showed no qualms about hurting Poe, who was referred to as a prisoner. “He bent toward the prisoner.” He gave no warning that he would harm the pilot during the session, but ultimately did (we can safely assume it hurt like hell, because Poe Dameron was screaming). 

- This is in stark contrast with Rey, who he referred to as his guest, and even told “I would have preferred to avoid this. Despite what you may believe, it gives me no pleasure. I will go as easily as possible—” when he spoke of his intention to get information about the map to Luke Skywalker from her. 

- Snoke even reprimands and accuses him of not trying hard enough to get the information out of Rey, stating, “You have compassion for her.”

Ben Solo has been a victim to the temptations of the Dark Side since he was a small child:
- Since before he even became a Padawan to Luke, Ben was already experiencing the influence of Supreme Leader Snoke. “From the shadows, in the beginning, even before I realised what was happening, he was manipulating everything, pulling our son toward the dark side” said his mother, when she admitted to Han Solo about her keeping secrets from him when Ben was a child.

- Take note that Ben left his parents to train with Luke at around the age of 10. Hearing the dark whispers of a powerful dark-force user while he was in his developmental stages didn’t mean that he’d be too young to understand what Snoke was telling him, rather, it made him more vulnerable to Snoke’s manipulations because he’s still at the tender stage of grasping the basics of right and wrong. 

- What’s interesting is that in spite of Ben being victim to Snoke’s manipulation since a child, he still has his moments when he is swayed by the Light. Besides his interactions with Rey, we also see this when Snoke orders Hux to destroy the Ileenium system. “Daring to disagree, Ren took a step forward. ‘No—Supreme Leader, I can get the map from the girl, that will be the end of it. I just need your guidance.’” he said this in hopes of swaying Snoke from killing thousands of lives, which Kylo Ren shouldn’t have given a care in the world about if he really was irredeemable.

Han Solo’s Death:
- Probably one of the most painful things anyone had to watch in film history, we all watched Han Solo die at the hand of the man who was his son. This should be enough to say that Kylo Ren is past the point of no return, but if you read the novelisation, it says “Stunned by his own actions, Kylo Ren fell to his knees, Following through on the act ought to have made him stronger, a part of him believed. Instead, he found himself weakened. He did not hear the roar of the enraged Wookie above, but he did feel the sting of the shot from the bowcaster as it slammed to his side, knocking him back on the walkway” Here we see Kylo Ren’s pain/regret over killing his father, there is a sense of numbness that the reader feels with the young man upon his father’s murder.

Rey’s vision of the past and future
- In both the novelisation and film, Rey encounters the day she was left on Jakku, she also sees images of what may be the day that Luke was betrayed by Kylo Ren. Images of the Knights of Ren flash before her, but what is most shocking about her vision is when Rey is about to be attacked by one of the Knights of Ren, only for the dark jedi to be impaled by none other than Kylo Ren. Coincidence? I think not. This can’t be a vision of the past (with the possibility that Rey was a Padawan of Luke’s and Kylo Ren spared her on the night of his betrayal) because she was shown to be a grown woman in that scene in contrast with her image as a child when she was left in Jakku.

Maz Kanata’s words to Rey about her destiny
- “Whatever you’ve been waiting for—whomever—I can see it in your eyes, you’ve known it all along…they’re not coming back. But there’s someone who still could. With your help.” This may be referring to Ben Solo, who is hidden deep within Kylo Ren. The fact that Rey somehow manages to fight off his mind probing and read his own thoughts is enough to show that Kylo Ren is vulnerable to Rey.

Rey leaves a mark on Kylo Ren/Ben Solo
- Emotionally, Rey had left Kylo Ren with a mark that revealed his vulnerability to her when she slapped his fears right at his face “You’re afraid that you’ll never be as strong as Darth Vader!” She then leaves a physical mark on Kylo Ren, the scar on his face that she inflicted upon him in their battle on Starkiller base. Knowing Starwars, this is a representation of the impact Rey has had on Kylo Ren (don’t take this in a romantic sense, though that’s entirely up to you), in the same way that Anakin Skywalker lost his hand to Count Dooku and Luke lost his hand to Darth Vader.

Masking/Unmasking
- Only 2 individuals in The Force Awakens wear masks that completely concealed their faces and later on removed it: that would be Finn and Ben Solo. It was at the moment of their unmasking that viewers see them at their most vulnerable and true selves. 

- Finn realised the reality of the First Order’s cruelty and violence, and that it was something that terrified him. In the times that Kylo Ren removed his mask, viewers saw him at his most vulnerable. First would be his interrogation of Rey, where he is visibly shaken and tries to hold back the waterworks when Rey reveals his fear/insecurity. The next time is when he kills Han Solo (then feels numb with shock and regret) and battles Rey, only to be defeated and nearly killed by her.

Journal of the Whills 7:477

First comes the Day
Then comes the night,
After the darkness
Shines through the light.
The difference, they say,
Is only made right
By the resolving of gray
through refined Jedi sight.

- This comes from the novelisation of The Force Awakens, which actually says a lot about the Prophecy regarding the chosen one, who is meant to bring balance to the Force. The issue of the Jedi Order for thousands of years was their rule of the Jedi only being exposed to the Light side of the Force, and not educating the Order about the Dark Side. It is because of this that the two sides are constantly at odds. Rey is with the Resistance, and looks to be the next Padawan of Luke Skywalker, rendering her as the Light side of the Force. Working with the First Order is Kylo Ren, a pupil of Dark Force user Supreme Leader Snoke, rendering him as the Dark Side of the Force. But if both characters constantly battle one another, the only progression would be the war. ‘through refined Jedi sight’ meaning that the Jedi Order has to evolve, to understand the Dark and Light Force means to know both sides and shun neither. Ben Solo and Rey will eventually have to become allies, ‘the resolving of gray’, to bring balance to the Force, thus intertwining their destinies as told by the excerpt from Journal of the Whills 7:477.

Tugtupite outfits I have been working on.
Some of them look a lil too superheroish I feel.
Tugtupite is based off of a swan maiden and they are also a harbinger of love. They sing love dirges and like to slow dance.

Their weapon is a crossbow and the arrows inspire feelings of love when someone is struck by them. The love is not necessarily romantic though. It could be a devotional love (such as to a matriarch) or even a friendly kind of love.
They detest conflict and often will try to defuse sour emotions using their arrows.

Am I the only one who didn’t get any romance vibes from the Amara/Dean scenes? He seems terrified of her and very confused by her. And she has an affection and gratitude for the man who brought about her freedom. She touched his cheek in the same way his mother and Castiel have. She is God’s equal. I really don’t see her romantically interested in one little human. I think there is a connection, though, because of the Mark, but not necessarily a romantic one. 

In case you need a refresher, the moment occurred while Caroline was reading Stefan the riot act for abandoning her three years prior: “Meanwhile, I was so desperate I called Klaus for help — who’s nowhere to be found, by the way.” She was, of course, referring to her visit to New Orleans during The Vampire Diaries‘ crossover with The Originals earlier this year.
“It’s definitely a hint,” though not necessarily a romantic one, executive producer Julie Plec tells TVLine. “This year, as we’ve crossed over, we’ve acknowledged [The Vampire Diaries and The Originals‘] shared universe. As we know from The Originals, there’s a prophecy predicting the demise of the Mikaelson family, so it was a nice little tease for viewers of that show to ask themselves, “Wait, what the hell happened to Klaus?”
If you were hoping for more, fear not. Plec acknowledges it’s entirely possible that The Vampire Diaries and The Originals will have more connectivity as they head into their eighth and fourth seasons, respectively.
