oh how i miss season 1

Downton Rewatch (Season 1): part ii

- oh my gOD Bates get a hold of yourself. so william comes barreling through the door and spills Thomas’ tea all over him and thomas gets mad. and says something snotty. wow. call the constable, what an effing crime. like. now thomas has tea all over his clothes so he’s either got to go and change (which i’m sure he has just masses of other clothes no problem right) or wait for it to dry, during which time if Mr. Carson catches him he’s going to get a verbal thrashing. DO EITHER OF THOSE OPTIONS SOUND APPEALING. like I am the first to admit that thomas is the most…JUST THE MOST. but don’t treat him like he just ripped the head off of a baby lamb for having a reaction jesus BACK OFF BATES

- oh good lord when Daisy says, “i’d do anything for you” and Thomas glows - ACTUALLY GLOWS - with something like pride and wonder and genuine surprise. i mean in the next second his face shifts and he does this villainous little smirk sure yeah because that’s a weapon, that’s something to defend yourself with if you need it, something to use against other people duh. (honestly i don’t know how anyone who isn’t a slytherin makes sense of the world but okay) but in that moment before, there was bare vulnerability and it was fucking beautiful. shit. i’m gonna make a shitty gif of it because you guys have got to see this shit.

THOMAS. (90% of my live action commentary watching this show is just me yelling out in a pained and strangled voice THUHMASSS).

-this is a real live actual conversation that happens.

OB: [plotting against Bates} What we need to do is to make him a suspect when something’s really been stolen.

Thomas: How do we know anything’s been stolen?

OB: Because you stole it, you noodle.

You are both noodles, and this is a terrible idea.

- side note: how fucking spot on is it that when there are scenes happening in Carson’s office or the servants hall you can hear Mrs. Patmore and Daisy bickering in the background. I mean. I take this show to task for a lot but wow that is some tight storytelling.

- man do i miss the good ole days of Thomas and OB plotting and smoking in the courtyard. iconic.

- there is not much i find more delightful than Thomas saying “sod ‘em.” why can’t he have been given more dirty lines please…why is RJC’s ridiculous accent so fucking soothing. SEE HOW SOOTHED I AM. i am currently just a skin bag of loose bones and honey.

- Daisy and Mrs. Patmore are fuking underappreciated. Daisy misunderstanding Mrs. Patmore and thinking she’s supposed to poison the food while Mrs. P is away for eye surgery is one of the best and most subtle moments of comedic genius in television history.

- why is watching Thomas putting food in his mouth…so erotic. i did not ask for this. i was perfectly happy not knowing this about myself.

- okay so look. i am the first (okay maybe not the first) to admit that Thomas says and does some mean shit. he’s not perfect! some days…he is so overwhelmingly far from perfect that hypothetically you have to go have a good long talk with yourself in the bathroom mirror about why the eff it’s one o clock in the morning and you are lulling yourself to sleep with VIVID fantasies of putting a grown man in the bathtub, washing the pomade out of his hair, and seeing what kinds of noises he makes when you skritch the back of his head. hypothetically. i can only imagine that’s what it would be like because none of this is personal experience. but also let’s not pretend that i won’t defend Thomas to the everloving end. yes, it is not his finest moment to make light of a woman losing her pregnancy or a young person losing their mother, BUT for fuck’s sake why does no one seem to have a problem with people putting their hands on Thomas in violence, holy shit.

- aghhhhh the fact that Thomas holds himself so still, head so high and proud when he’s got bruises on his face. It is the Don’t Fucking Touch Me Stillness, cousin to his Blank Look of Shame, and you all know how i feel about that.

- hahahahahhah ohhhhhhh well fuck me i guess branson/sybil/gwen was the ot3 i didn’t even know i wanted. 

UP NEXT IN SEASON 2: THOMAS SURROUNDED BY MEN IN UNIFORM, HOW WILL HE DEAL (spoiler alert: badly and with lots of looks of PANGED LONGING)

First Impressions This Season

So it’s a week into this season and every show has had at least one episode now (I think). I’ll go through what I’ve watched and say what I think so far. I guess spoilers for episode 1, but are those really spoilers?

Gabriel Dropout

The premise is that after graduating angel or demon school said angels or demons go to earth and go to school there so that they can learn to be proper angels or proper demons. The main character is a decidedly unangelic angle that gets hooked on online games and becomes a shut in, while the rest of the cast is filled in with characters equally ill suited to their roles. This looks pretty entertaining and it’s basically Doga Kobo doing what they do best. It doesn’t seem like a show that I’m going to remember down the road, but it’s a nice moe SoL to watch. The humor has been pretty good too, so I’ve got decent expectations from it.

Little Witch Academia

I’m super excited for LWA and the first episode was great. The original OVA that was kick started was fantastic and set this all in motion, so that alone is kind of cool to see. I’d call the show a moe SoL, but it’s really a Trigger SoL with moe elements. Is it moe? I don’t even know lol, but I’ve got high expectations for it and I don’t think Trigger is going to let me down. They are good at the over the top crazy, and I think that they can do a great over the top wacky magical shenanigans show. Definitely high hopes for this show.

Kono Subarashii no Sekai ni Shukufuku wo! 2 (Konosuba s2)

That mouthful of a title aside, it’s more konosuba. The animation seems like it’s even more “quality” than last season, but that doesn’t bother me too much. The kinda cobbled together sometimes almost bad animation kinda adds to the show. But there is probably a limit to that and I hope they don’t find it lol. The Star Wars credits were a hilarious way to start off this season, and I hope that it continues to amuse me as much as it has already. I’ve got decent expectations of this show, but I’m not holding out for it to be incredible.

Demi-chan wa Katatirai 

The premise of this show is that there are demi humans in the world and the teacher of this school is interested in learning more about them by interviewing them. Naturally a bunch of them end up at his school so this gets to happen. I was a little concerned about the possible weird teacher-student relationships that this sort of show can get into, but after two episodes I don’t think it will be like that at all. The cast seems pretty alright, with Hikari and the teacher being great characters. I’ll watch this show just for Hikari’s antics even if it somehow gets worse. I don’t think this will be an amazing show, but once again a nice cute SoL to fill the time.

Kobayashi-san Chi no Maid Dragon

Sort of an unexpected title for Kyoani to be adapting, but it seems to be working so far. The premise is that Tohru (the dragon) becomes Kobayashi’s maid because on a drunken adventure Kobayashi pulled a holy sword out of her and then said she could stay with her. I picked up the first volume of the manga awhile back because buy two get one free sales make me do silly things and I really enjoyed it. There is a nice amount of good jokes and then some just funny moments with Tohru being a dragon and doing dragon things. I expect this to keep me thoroughly entertained, but it probably won’t be one of Kyoani’s truly marvelous show. Gonna be hard to follow Hibike S2 lol.

So ya, that’s what I’ve watched for this season. I don’t know if I’ll really get around to anything else this season, but these at least all look like they’ll be fine watches. I have the most hope and expectations from Little Witch Academia, and I’m particularly excited that it is 2 cour. 

I like how the first two episodes of supergirl season 2 were all about superman and they promoted him so much ( he even went to comic con with them) I literally thought he was gonna be there the whole season or at least more than 2 frickin episodes and then the episode right after he left were all about mon El.

At the start I thought people were just overreacting about the whole “oh it’s gonna be all about superman” thing so I was like you know what I’m gonna give cw a chance. But ever since they moved it has been all about the men. I mean I thought this was supposed to be about supergirl. Sure we get a few Kara scenes (about her story line) here and there but if it wasn’t for the title I would think that this was a show about mon El.

@thestateofardadreaming said: 

First : a charloe sideblog!!!???? I came a bit late in the fandom so I probably missed it. I can totally see how you went from Charloe OTP to Charlett. If I weren’t so hopelessly obsessed with the older guy thing, I’d have totally gone for it (also if I didn’t love Bass so much!) oh and interesting! You don’t like the Miles being her dad thing? Why? I’m curious. I both like and dislike the idea. Mainly because of my ship life. I like to imagine that they’d ignore it.

Aaaand I also prefer season 1 Charlie and I’m convinced that later in her life she’ll go back to this side of her.

Oh god, the Miles being her dad thing was such a erk thing in the comics (not as much as Connor dying tho) what i dislike about it is that it was so obvious it was a possibility since S1 that it really felt cheap to make it happen, even more so because they used the comics to set it in stone, which means they didn’t want to go there in the show and take a stand on if he was or wasn’t her dad. I’d have much rather they left this question a “maybe”, to be interpreted by the viewers as the answer they prefer. 

and my charloe sideblog was created late in S1 i think, maybe even early S2, i don’t really remember, it’s @fyeahbasscharlie and i haven’t updated it in forever but it was a fun thing while it was going. 

I think if charlie had the chance to settle she would slowly go back to the s1 side of her, soft and kinder, but I also think that she’s been through so much she would be a bit in between both selves. it would have been nice to see her like that, she had so much growing to do still.

More screenshots from voltron season 1 episode 3 (on Netflix)

And just aw more cute Lance and Hunk moments (oh but what’s this it’s not just Lance and hunk being cute it’s Keith too)

But look Lance is even smiling back at hunk in some of these how did we all miss those cute little smiles (they are not smirks just look at them cute smiles you don’t see those smiles from Lance all that often most of the time you get a grin or a smirk or am I wrong)

And aw hunk he’s so sweet here too

(And jees Lance your acting like a cat so much here but then Keith is too a little look at that face he makes in the lance one like he going hmff)

Do I label this as klance with a side of hunk added in or?

Shipping Fitzsimmons: The Process
  • Step 1: Oh wow 5 seconds in and they already have a ship name.
  • Step 2: I mean they're cute but I think they kinda have more of a platonic brother/sister relationship and awww they're finishing each other's sentences
  • Step 3: NOPE NEVER MIND I SHIP THEM THEY'RE SO ADORABLE I JUST ABOUT DIE WHEN HE CALLS HER JEMMA
  • Step 4: Awwww Fitz just tell her how you feel
  • Step 5: FUCK YOU WARD. SERIOUSLY. FUCK YOU.
  • Step 6: *read a ton of angsty amnesia fics*
  • Step 7: Well, at least it can't get any worse
  • Step 8: OK I WAS WRONG IT GOT WORSE

Okay but where is my gifset of Sarah getting calls and always picking up after Felix told her not to, because there is at least 3 scenes like that only in season 1 and it always cracks me up. 

Bonus if you add “hoe don’t do it” and “oh my god” on said gifs.
