Are you interested in watching Adventure Time, but intimidated by the thought of watching 252 episodes? Have you watched the series before, but want to watch again without any filler episodes (unless it’s Bubbline, of course)? This is for you!
After seeing a request in the ATimers tag, I have compiled a list of all the Adventure Time episodes that contain major plot, important backstory, major characterization, and/or Bubbline moments. I have also included optional episodes that I think will increase your understanding/enjoyment of the show (I put the reason next to it; if it says something about being an arc, backstory, characterization, etc., be warned that not watching may make the major plot points of the show a bit more confusing for you).
I condensed the show down to 128 of the 10-minute episodes (69 episodes if you don’t watch any of the optional episodes). Optional episodes are in italics. Episodes with Bubbline moments, characterization of Marcy/Princess Bubblegum (PB), or major backstory/plot related to Marcy/PB are in bold. Anything with a an asterisk (*) can be watched at any time (order doesn’t matter, though you may still want to watch it in the same season).
I hope this helps someone out since I spent three hours putting it together! Without further ado…
Are you still taking cuddle prompts from the list you linked to? Early season MSR, #30
Cuddle alert! Set in season 2 between Firewalker and Red Museum.
Scully’s voice screeches as she watches her partner being shoved into the tiny
closet almost hidden in the wall; his broad shoulders bump painfully against the frame
before he disappears inside. The door is slammed shut and the faceless man
turns to her; she raises her gun, her hands shaking slightly, but she isn’t
fast enough. The gun is kicked from her hand, she screams, she bites, and
before she knows it the closet door opens again and she is thrown against
need you Feds getting in my way.” They hear their suspect laugh from the
other side before his footsteps are gone. Scully pushes against the door in the
pitch black darkness and feels Mulder behind her, much too close, much too
us out of here!” Scully hammers her fists against the wood, kicks it
angrily, until Mulder’s hands settle on her shoulders gently squeezing.
no use,” his voice is soft and his breath tickles her; he is just too damn
close and she can’t see anything here. Her hands pause, unclench, and she takes
a deep breath. “Save your strength.”
what, Mulder? He’s not just going to come back.”
knows where we are. They’ll find us. He’ll kick our asses for letting a suspect
get away, but he’ll let us out of here.” Mulder assures her with his hands
still on her shoulders; Scully knows she’s tense and with him so close, she
knows he can tell.
Mulder? How long do we have to be in here?” She can’t keep the quiver out
of her voice. Scully leans forward, tries to break contact with Mulder, but
there’s just no room. She closes her eyes; this darkness, her own, almost a
know,” Mulder clears his throat behind her and she swears she can just
about feel it, “this kind of reminds me of playing seven minutes in
heaven.” He chuckles and she definitely feels that, his body seemingly
coming even closer, his warmth indiscernible from her own. Scully appreciates
his attempt to lighten the mood, but this isn’t a game and it’s far from
heaven. More like forever stuck in hell. Stuck being the operative word. She
takes a deep, shaky breath.
isn’t your fault, Mulder.”
making you uncomfortable. I’d say that’s my fault.” He shifts behind her and
for a short moment his body is no longer touching hers. It lasts not even a
second before he’s back against her; his chest pressing into her back, his legs
aligned with hers. “There’s not much space here. I’m sorry, Scully. I’ll
try to uhm, behave. And shut up.”
you’re not the problem.” Her whisper in this dark, quiet closet could have
just as well have been a scream. He is silent after that and Scully is
convinced she can hear him think. He is going through their files in his mind,
searching for any indication why this is so difficult for her; it takes him a
while, longer than she thought it would, and she knows exactly when he gets it.
His gasp is audible, sounds painful in her ears, and almost immediately his
hand is back on her shoulder.
Barry.” It’s not a question. “He- when you – when he…” Scully
nods, hoping to shut him up.
so sorry, Scully.” His apology is different this time and his hand leaves
her shoulder, lands on her back, and gently starts stroking up and down; Scully
is uncertain if he’s even aware of what he’s doing. Ever since she’s come back, he’s been invading her personal
space, making it his own. Touching her
at every opportunity; just a hand on her shoulder, a lingering touch on her
back. It’s as if he’s still not sure she’s really here with him and he needs to
make sure it’s her and he can still touch her, feel her under his hands. It
bothers her, sometimes, but not now. This, she realizes, is not at all like
when Duane Barry kidnapped her, put her in the trunk. Her hands tied up then,
unable to scream, to ask for help. She’d yelled for Mulder in her mind
repeatedly. This time he is here. She is not alone in the darkness. He is here
and he is not going to let anything happen to her. He told her to take time
off, to get better and she assured him she was fine. She was. Until now. So she
doesn’t try to get away from him any longer, his strength and his warmth.
Instead, she leans back against him, hoping he understands her without having
to say it, without having to ask him to hold her. For a moment they stand like
this; back to chest, otherwise not touching. Then Mulder tentatively puts his
arms around her, rests his hands on her stomach, engulfing her completely. His
head comes to rest on hers heavily, pleasantly and a sense of safety spreads
inside of her.
this all right?”
more than all right.” Scully lets him know, her gratitude stuck on her tongue, and puts her own hands over
his; this time it’s her who needs to make sure he really is there and not just a figment
of her imagination.
don’t move, don’t speak for the longest time. Until they hear voices,
frantically searching for them. Mulder’s hands leave her body, but not her, as
they both hammer against the door and when it finally opens, the light blinding
them momentarily, Skinner helps them out.
We got him. He wouldn’t tell us where you were. Are you all right,
Agents?” Scully feels Mulder behind her; he is not pressed against her
anymore, but he is there, ready to jump in, hold her, keep her safe.
fine, Sir.” Mulder puts his hand on her back as they leave, at last, but
they never speak of what happened while they were trapped inside there ever
So, as much as I want Shiro back ASAP, I think we can all agree that there’s been some pretty heavy foreshadowing that he’s going to be gone for at least a while, and in the meantime Keith is probably going to fly Black.
So what I’m assuming is going to happen is Keith moves to Black, Lance moves to Red, and Allura takes Blue, just like in the original series.Calm your shouts of protest for a sec. As much as I don’t want there to be a lion swap (rest in peace, my perfectly color coordinated pinterest aesthetic boards) I think it would lead to a couple of really cool things.
“Story Time! Once a guy tried out an app and it changed his life. Thank you, Vine”
Yes, Vine. Thank you for bringing Thomas Sanders into my life! And can I just wanna say that I’m incredibly thankful that Vine was a thing!? And since I’ve done so many I felt the need to do one last Vine related drawing since it ended today!
Thomas, thank you so much for being the stupendous individual that you are and continue to be! It has been an honor and a privilege to watch you grow over these past 4 years!! I’m so freakin proud of you! And with Vine ending I feel we just finished the most recent chapter, that was just volume 1! Your story has only begun, Thomas! And honestly I can’t wait to see where it goes! I love you to the moon and back! ✌🏾️💜💚
