Do you think Bellarke is going to happen this season?
Hi anon! My answer to this is that we will definitely
get some sort of
confession. I’m not specifying the type of confession because I believe it’ll
differ between Bellamy and Clarke. I personally believe that Bellamy will
confess his feelings for Clarke because we already saw how close he got;
however, I can’t say the same for Clarke unless a situation comes where she
feels like she may truly lose him. What I do think will happen is some sort of
acknowledgement that will let them move forward, that is, if the impending apocalypse actually allows it.
To me, Clarke is not really “in love” with
Bellamy. I say this because Clarke and Bellamy haven’t had the time to really
define their relationship and there’s been countless obstacles, particularly
with Clarke having two love interests. But, at the same time, she is aware that
her love for him goes beyond the love you have for your friends. That Bellamy
is more than just a companion of sorts - he’s her constant. Someone who is a
part of what she feels is home. I believe she’s coming to terms with who
Bellamy is to her and right now (I’ll write a meta exploring this in more
depth), she knows that she sees him in her future. But she isn’t questioning how he fits into that future. Bellamy is more to her than
a potential lover, he is a huge part of why she’s fighting every day. She sees
Bellamy and she sees a reason to have hope. She doesn’t know what they may
eventually become but whatever it is, she’s fighting for the simple existence
of that future.
This season, Clarke has been more adamant about
surviving. As I explained in my meta, her faith in their survival is what allows Clarke to
push this aside because she believes Bellamy and her have
a chance. A chance to figure out what
they mean to each other, a chance to live rather than just survive as they’ve
done tirelessly. But it’s a chance that will come later for her. A recurring
message throughout the season has been prioritising survival above actual
“We won’t just survive, we’ll thrive.”
“First we survive, then we find our humanity again.”
Unlike Bellamy who’s become more wary of time and sees
now as the best time to profess his feelings (read @craterhead‘s wonderful meta about
Bellamy in 4x06 here), Clarke hasn’t confronted time in that sense as of
yet. She cut Bellamy off because she believes that there will be a better time for that. Because Bellamy will live.
He will get to say whatever he wanted to say to her because his survival isn’t
a question to her. Their future together is a big part of what she’s fighting
for. Humanity’s survival isn’t a fight she’s ready to admit she can lose. At
least not as of yet. However, if Clarke comes to that situation (it doesn’t
feel unlikely) there’s always a possibility she’ll say a few words to Bellamy.
About what “special” really means to her; what he means to her.
As for Bellamy, I definitely
think that he’ll profess his feelings this season and how Clarke takes it will
depend on the situation. Nevertheless, it will be a massive step towards the
two progressing their relationship. I believe a kiss is possible but it
won’t come in a relaxed situation and neither will their confessions. Hope that
answered your question :)
Also saw people sending you some Good Headcanons and can I just chime in to spread the good word about Adam with brain damage? He canonically has it and it explains not only his hearing loss but his mood swings and losing time too. And think about this... Cabeswater finding those cracks, Cabeswater communicating the way it does as a way of healing the cracks in his skull and his perception of the world... Adam has post-concussion syndrome and a traumatic brain injury I truly believe this.
