Here, summarized in a single short scene, we have every reason that Ji Wook works for me so entirely as a romantic lead. Under all his angst, posturing and generally feeling sorry for himself, he still manages to be incredibly gentle and sincere with Bong Hee.
Bong Hee has just a traumatic confrontation with DA Jang and is trying to bear with it quietly on her own. For whatever reason she has determined to keep the incident from Ji Wook. Maybe this is because she doesn’t want to burden him with more of her problems, she already depends on him for so much. Or perhaps she recognizes that he’s already struggled two set backs in his career for going up against the DA on her behalf and doesn’t want to jeopardize his newly launched law firm. We’re not told.
But despite her attempts to hide her distress behind a smile, he notices that something is wrong and goes to her room to check on her. When he notices the bruising starting around her throat, he is immediately solicitous and asks her what happened. When she insists that it’s nothing he reassures her that it’s okay to tell him.
Maybe he understands what she’s trying to do by keeping it from him. But she firmly tells him that she doesn’t want to talk about it. At that point he doesn’t contradict her. He doesn’t press her further. He simply accepts her word. The last thing he does is ask if she’s going to be okay. Because that’s the most important thing here. Not his involvement, or a patronizing desire to protect her, or prove his masculinity. If she’s okay, then that’s enough. When she says she is, he leaves without further resistance.
In this moment he was both tender and respectful. It’s the kind of moment OTPs are made of. Keep it up show.
i had to put the kittens in the Room Of Shame (aka the bathroom where they’ve been sleeping at night that has their litterbox) because one of them wouldn’t stop licking and trying to chew on my face, and i didn’t want her to get lonely, so i put her sister in there with her……
Oliver either called Lyla or Lyla was already on her way once she heard Adrian was set free. Either way Lyla was the back up plan. No way Oliver didn’t have her as a contingency plan. And quite possibly Argus owns a submarine.
It’s been a while since I’ve made a post of any kind here, huh?
First of all, I just want to thank every single one of you who sent in messages to help me out with the blog when I reached out to you all. I greatly appreciated all of you, and I truly did look at the messages and tried to find the energy to message someone back and set someone up as Mod. But, I really truly did not have it in me. I have just been dealing with quite a lot of personal things lately, and so…PLLTTH!! YEAH! Thank you all for sticking around as well!
Secondly, I’ve set up a queue. It’ll be posting 2 times over the next few days to get the blog caught up with the comic. It should be caught up by next week Friday!
As for whether I’m back to keeping the blog up-to-date with the comic? I’m not sure yet, but we will see how things go.
Again, thank you all for sending in to help and for sticking around. I appreciate you all. <3
“The Gathering” Order from Chaos I - Sonic the Hedgehog #168
So this story follows up with the infected by nanites plot that was set up back in issue 159. In fact this story resolves multiple dangling pot threads. So many in fact that few receive the focus they deserve.
Take Bunnie and the rest of the infected mobians for instance.
These are the only two pages we spend with her. We can tell she’s clearly upset but we get little to no reflection on how much this event has impacted her as we race to the next plot point. What’s worse is that none of the infected individuals interact at all during this story. What could have been an interesting character piece for some underused players takes a back seat to the ongoing plot instead.
One thing I’ll always commend Ian Flynn for is that he doesn’t ignore what came before. He takes previous lore, characters, and developments and builds off them. So many other writers will pick up a series and then, desperate to make their mark, will completely throw everything out the window and “start fresh.” In what is meant to be a continuity heavy medium that can get rather annoying for the audience.
Unfortunately though, in an effort to wrap up everything neatly before moving on to new stories, we some times get story arcs like this that feel like we’re just checking off a laundry list of to-do-stuff. Interesting ideas and potential character developments are skipped over in favor of exposition and action beats in order to cram everything in.
Anyways ADAM has taken over Tommy Turtle’s body and captured Shadow, Tails, and Jules. We’ll return to this story later and it’s impact on the universe, but until then join just next time when we slow down for a bit and look at one of the few actual character pieces this era.
!!! What’s this? lol jk it’s just a small teaser I did recently (oh nooo flashback train tracks!). I’ve been getting messages about the Zen Feels Train again despite it being in the FAQ already askjdhsakd does no one read FAQs anymore ;;-;;
So anyway, I was thinking of updating on April (bruh work messed up my schedule I forgot there was a major sale during April-May season) and I was thinking of updating per page whenever I finish one && upload it somewhere like tapastic (?) or something similar so I don’t clutter up your dashes. I will still upload sets on tumblr like before but for those who want to view pages as they are completed, the off-tumblr option (tapastic,webtoon,etc idk yet) is always there (…?) what sites would you guys suggest?
Samurai Jack (2017) || Ep. 2: Nuts and Bolts ↳ “Aku doesn't know, and he hasn't shown himself in years. He keeps thinking one of these machines can defeat me. It always seems bad at first. But then I find a way. They’re just nuts and bolts…. Just nuts, and bolts.”
There was something about this whole narrative, that wasn’t adding up for me. I was having a hard time putting my finger on it, then Camila released that description about her album, and it started making more sense.
They want us to believe, this whole narrative took place in 2016, but when you remember back and realize, the 2016 narrative was just a revamped version of the 2015 narrative, it all begins to fall into place.
Everyone latched on to that July 4 2016 Brazil snap, of her alone, writing in a hotel bathroom, while the girls were out celebrating together, as the time she began writing “I have questions”. That’s exactly what Management hoped you’d do. If one paid attention though, you would see that the more important snap happened back in October 2016. She snapped a photo of her writing in a bathroom, with the caption ”destroyed”. First, July - October does not equal 6 months, no matter how crappy your math is. Second, the 7/27 tour was coming to an end, and with that caption, I actually think, that is when she finished writing “I have questions”.
The only tour date they had in early 2016, was Dubai. So, unless she started writing it in a Dubai potty, the rest of early 2016 was spent promoting WFH. She stated she started writing that song, “a little over a year ago” while on tour. I think her “a little over a year ago” means the last few months of 2015, September-November. That she eventually had to face her problems, and she finally went back to the lyrics she started from the year before, and finished the song, then wrote a sad song every day until she got sick of writing sad shit. That song seems to be a catalyst for her, and I’m thinking it probably “destroyed” her to finally finish it.
Camila was asked recently, in an interview, when her anxiety showed itself and started becoming a real problem for her. Her answer was, 2015. Everything started in 2015. Her anxiety, the fucking narrative, the division, EVERYTHING!!
