ok i don't really like the raven

anonymous asked:

What's your opinion on Emori/memori in general? I'm not a fan of her, personally. She's badass and she's a survivor but she's too cruel for my liking. And I know why she is this way but still, especially after the newest clip. Let's just leave Raven out of it ok girl? And idk about memori. I don't think she's a great influence on him but she does make him happy, and I think she really does care about him and only him.

I love Emori. She’s a badass bitch and no excuses. And I don’t mean badass as in, dominating everyone with flashy fighting. I mean Bad. Ass. Bitch. She is NOT a flat “Strong Female Character,” who acts like a stereotypical male hero without earning it, and rejecting feminine characteristics.

She’s a survivor. Not a hero. She’s a mutant. She’s a reject. She’s a robber. She’s an outlaw. She will do whatever she needs to get by. Murphy is her people. Everyone else is a means to an end. She’s been ground down and she’s clawed her way to where she is. And she’s NOT on top. She’s not a winner. She’s not powerful. She’s lost everything and she clings to what she has left, John. She doesn’t trust anyone but him, for good reason. She’s smart and suspicious. And loving. She has hopes and dreams even if they are small dreams of a little bunker to ride out the apocalypse. 

That is a GOOD character. 

She is not a Disney princess. She’s not an ingenue. She’s not a helper person. She’s not “good” person. But she’s interesting and her choices affect the story and our heroes.

Would I follow her lead? Not in a million. Would a trust her? Nope. Do I like her? 

Yup.

And it’s fantastic that with a character as flawed and complicated as that, as tough and ruthless as she is, she has such a tender, gentle relationship with Murphy. You say she’s a bad influence on Murphy? Do you forget that this is the boy who peed on a kid? Hanged Bellamy? He’s come a long way, but he’s not a Disney prince, either. Emori brought him back to humanity. Gave him a reason to love and trust someone, gave him a reason to think beyond his own survival. Again. This is a good story. Their relationship is interesting and realistic. 

I don’t look for my favorite stories to be stories of perfect people. I like flawed characters making hard decisions and becoming better people. And I don’t think Raven is some delicate flower who needs to be protected. I don’t think Raven would appreciate being treated like that, either. In fact, it’s part of her character that she doesn’t. She’s more like Murphy and Emori than she is like Clarke or Abby, to be quite honest. She’s the one who felt no remorse at torturing Lincoln. The one ready to blow up the bridge or army or generator. She’s the one who accused Bellamy and Clarke of being killers, and denied Abby medicine to treat patients. She’s growing and changing and becoming more humane, but no. Raven is not a Disney princess either. And I like that about her.

Listen. I need so much overprotective Bellamy or Raven or Octavia like honestly anybody would do but those are my top three. I don't really have a plot request so this can just be a freebie for you if you decide to write it, just try to include overprotectiveness that's kinda annoying but you know it's good intentioned oh dear I'm getting carried away ok so you don't have to write it but you can? If you want. Ok love your writing bye

“Back.  Off.”

Octavia was so close to the guard that she could feel his breath gusting across her face, but nevertheless she held her ground between you and him.

“Octavia, I can handle this,” you reminded her.  It wasn’t the first time you had come face to face with one of them since the rest of the survivors had crashed to earth.

“Blake, I suggest you listen to your little girlfriend for once and remove yourself from the situation before I have to reprimand you too,” the man loomed over her and cocked his head to the side as if he was challenging her to get herself in trouble.  Sure enough, her fist had crashed into the side of his face less than three seconds later.

That certainly got the attention of the other so called “law enforcers” because before you knew it, you were both pinned to the wet ground with your hands behind your backs.

“I could have handled that,” you muttered against the grass and mud pressing against your lips.

“Didn’t look like it.”

“Well, you didn’t do a great job either.”

SHE’S THE MAN AU

Everybody has a secret… Lincoln wants Clarke who likes Bellamy who is really Octavia whose brother is dating Raven so she hates Clarke who’s with Lincoln to make Bellamy jealous who is really Octavia who’s crushing on Lincoln who thinks she’s a guy…

It's BELLARKE not BLARKE

Why do people keep calling bellarke “blarke”? Like it really annoys me. I mean if it’s a misunderstanding ok but if not it’s childish and disrespectful.
