one of the best things about season 3

I’m a one-woman Ron Swanson Defense League.

I seriously don’t understand how that character was reinterpreted as a mean, unsmiling, hyper-herterosexual, anti-feminist, heartless jerk.

Is he a firm believer in capitalism and a staunch libertarian? Sure. Does he not much care for fussy things? Of course. Does he eat a lot of meat? Naturally.

But over seven seasons we met a man with a heart as big as the Grand Canyon, his own hobbies and interests (which he talks about with a smile on his face), he becomes a better husband and supportive, albeit sometimes clumsy, father.

His relationships with the women is his life are as varied as the women themselves. With the exception of his ex-wives, he is forthright, respectful, mentoring and supportive.

Leslie and Ron are the perfect extrovert/introvert dynamic. They work their own ways, but the mutual respect and admiration carries the day.

A selection of best Ron moments:

1. “Don’t half-ass two things, whole ass one thing”
2. Renovating the 6th floor of City Hall with his infant son.
3. Pretty much the whole Season 7 arc
4. The Dorothy Every Time Smurf Award for Excellence In Female Stuff
5. Ron helping solve the scavenger hunt Leslie gave Ben
6. Giving Leslie away at her wedding
7. Bonding with Andy when April is sick with the flu
8. Snake Juice!Ron
9. Parenting April and Andy
10. “Any other damn thing you might need.”

Leslie is the heart of the show, but Ron is its moral compass.


yknow what will be really fucking awesome? if there’s an episode in season 3 where the paladins are fighting but someone has got to sacrifice themselves to do this one thing that could save them and amidst all the debate and fighting, lance just rushes forwards and does it and when the rest do realise it’s too late. then the convo goes like ‘laNCE wHAT ARE YOU DOING’ ‘shiro you’re the leader, keith you’re our best pilot, pidge and hunk you’re our engineers…and i…i’m just a boy from cuba’ (tHE LINE THAT JEREMY WAS TALKING ABOUT) and then lance just smiles wistfully aND HE’S GONE
then while the paladins mourn his loss and all, it’s revealed that mY BOY LANCE is actuALLY ALIVE!!! and that sOMEHOW HE’S WITH MTFKING PRINCE LOTOR AND THAT’S HOW HE’S INTRODUCED BAAM

My Current Top-Ten Anime

1. Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood - My all-time favourite though I don’t really talk about it. It has one of the best world-building I’ve seen in anime, and I love basically everything about it. Brotherhood is better than the first anime because it has Ling Yao, Mei Chang and Olivier Mira Armstrong in it amongst other things!!

2. Haikyuu!! - One of my favourite sports anime, I’ve fallen in love with almost all of the cast, and it’s the only manga that I follow at the moment too. I love the underdog story and they’re finally going places now! I’m really excited for what the mangaka has in store for us in the future!

3. Yuri!!! on Ice - My current obsession if the things i’m reblogging aren’t making that obvious. This one is a game changer, a history maker! Best anime this season (that i’m watching). If you haven’t watched it yet, leave this post and get on that, stat!!

4. Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso/Your Lie in April - CRIED LIKE A NEWBORN BABY TO THIS! This is such an incredible story about getting over emotional trauma, and rediscovering your passions. Prepare a tissue box or two…hundred.

5. Tiger & Bunny - This one is seriously underrated!! So maybe it’s not for everyone but i loved the family drama, and the relationship building between the two main heroes. The characters are all charming, the villain is positively EVIL, and the plot is great!

6. Hajime no Ippo - In my opinion one of the best sports anime of all time. I can’t recommend it enough - don’t get put off because of it’s art style, it has some unbelievably epic matches! No match is boring!!

Can we all just think a moment and appreciate that Tweek x Craig went the way it did? I mean, think about it. Matt and Trey COULD have spent the whole episode mocking the ship (I mean they kinda did, but hopefully you understand what I mean). They COULD have used the episode to 100% sink the ship and establish that Tweek and Craig, like, hate each other or something (not that that’d stop the shippers, but you know what I mean). This is the show that mocks pretty much everything, no reason to think this ship should be any different just because the fandom likes it, especially with how little canon interaction they’ve had besides that one episode way back in Season 3.

But they didn’t. Instead they made the two pretty much best friends at the very least AND kept their relationship, whatever the true nature of it is, going past that episode AND throw tease for the shippers around like confetti just about every time the two appear together (which is often these days). Thinking about it like that and thinking about how they COULD have chosen to approach things just makes me appreciate all the more how things turned out.

Why Mona Being A to Protect Her Friendship with Hanna Makes Total Sense (submitted by skinnyappeal-blog)

I know people doubt that Mona’s real reason to become A again was because the girls were taking Hanna away from her when they weren’t even friends yet, but I think this actually makes a lot of sense when I re-watch the first episode. Think about it:

1) Mona had spent enough time being tormented by Alison that she snapped and became A (that shows a lot of trauma), and the theme of most of the flashbacks with all the girls together is that they never stood up to Alison’s bullying. In fact, this is directly said to Hanna by Lucas later in the season.

2) Hanna had clearly changed since Alison’s disappearance. In later seasons, we learn that Mona purposefully sought out Hanna’s friendship and helped her reinvent herself. Mona clearly really cares for Hanna who, as Mona says, is Mona’s best and only friend. As someone who had snapped to defend herself before, she would be very protective about losing the one thing she felt she had.

3) While Mona and Hanna are shoplifting, Hanna leaves Mona to go talk to Spencer. We later learn have not kept in contact, which means this kind of interaction would have been unusual. And once again, Mona is left behind.

4) The very next day, Aria returns and is hanging out with Emily when Mona first sees her. Look at this reaction when Hanna waves at Aria:

That’s not a neutral expression. Not only has she been deserted by Hanna for Spencer, now Aria has returned, is hanging out with Emily (there weren’t assigned seats, but they’re sitting together), and Hanna is being friendly.

5) Next, Spencer walks in and takes Hanna’s attention AGAIN. Mona reacts to this as well:

While we can’t see her face, the scene makes it clear that she quickly checks to see who has Hanna’s attention.

All of a sudden, the girls are all together again. In Mona’s mind, she’s already gotten rid of Alison. Now these girls are back, the others all having been cruel to her by not standing up for her to Alison, and Hanna is already showing interest. She defended herself before, and she can do it again; in fact, she already has the perfect scheme since she’s done it before. This is why Aria gets the first text–she’s the instigator because of her return and the easy opportunity that presented itself with Ezra. Mona didn’t know exactly what had happened, but she has an especially quick mind and everyone in that classroom knew something was up with how Ezra reacted to seeing Aria. It was an unfortunate side effect that returning to being A drew the girls back together. From Mona’s perspective, who had never had a friend, threatening someone with their secrets would keep people silent and isolated. It certainly worked with Alison.

In the end, Mona unwittingly proved that Alison was right (and Spencer was wrong): As Alison said at the very beginning, “Friends do share secrets. It’s what keeps us close.”

As we watch and tweet tag (using the @) ABC as well and add the #renewagentsofshield

WATCH LIVE!  I realize we have a large international fan base but everyone who can WATCH LIVE!

  • DVR it and watch/rewatch preferably in the first 3 Days but up to 7….I literally have all of Season 3 and Season 4 so far on mine.
  • Watch again or watch on ABC on Demand
  • Buy the episode on itunes and amazon.

TWEET! Make us trend as the episode airs.  And keep it going all night as we air in different time zones. 

  • Use the Hashtags ABC, Colo, Agents of Shield Feed, and the Cast are using.  #AgentsofShield, #LMD, #Philinda, #FItzsimmons, and anything else they put out.  You can tag ABC as well.   HERE is the Tweet Colo just put out with that lovely picture.  Let’s unite Tonight @Marvel #AgentsofSHIELD #LMD LIVE Tweet

I know some of you are lucky enough to have the Season 3 DVD on pre order now.  Buying the past seasons shows the interest.

Yes, the ABC president was Bullish about us and seemed pleased with how things were going.  But, we need to plan for the worst but fight for the best here guys.

Do any of you want to tell my adorable kiddo that her favorite show has been cancelled?   I don’t!

Its time to mobilize guys, its time to watch, its time to be vocal, its time to show them just how much love there is for this show, its cast and its crew.  Boost this post by reblogging, spread the word, and I’ll see you all Tuesday night!

HI i just found this blog and, firstly, i love it? i love it. but! recently i watched the Power Rangers movie and fell in love, as, so many others, and after just a brief lookaround i couldn't find anything like this, so i was wondering if maybe you could give me a few good Jumping Off Points to get into this whole shebang? because there is a LOT but i wanna see as much as i can!! thank u!!

hi there! thank you so much! hope you don’t mind if i publish this but i’ve gotten a lot of new followers lately so i think this might be helpful to more people :)

my friend @erniesbrainfreeze​ has actually written a wonderful spoiler-free guide to all the seasons of power rangers (i helped a little) right here: beginner’s guide to pr! it goes through the premise for each season, highlights, pros, and cons, it’s very well thought-out.

aside from that here are my personal jumping off points to get people into power rangers:

  • power rangers rpm (2009): post-apocalyptic, standalone, 32 episodes, widely hailed as one of the best-written, best-acted seasons. opinions may vary but it’s super interesting.
  • power rangers ninja storm (2003): california extreme sports meets secret ninja academies, standalone, 38 episodes, features evil rangers and imo one of the best sixth ranger reveals
  • power rangers spd (2005): space cops at a police academy in the near future (takes place in 2025), standalone, 38 episodes, features a really unique premise and time-travel
  • power rangers jungle fury (2008): kung fu students working at a pizza parlor, standalone, 32 episodes, very self-contained, small cast, super cute and just a solid season to start with

a few things to remember: just because mighty morphin’ is the most well-remembered does not mean it’s the best place to start. it has almost 200 episodes over 3 seasons, most of them are filler, and honestly… it’s not as good as some later seasons. i wouldn’t recommend starting with zordon era (mmpr-space) unless you REALLY liked it from your childhood because those seasons were all connected and it’s a lot to watch all at once. the standalone seasons imo provide a better, easier grasp of what power rangers is about, and then, depending on which ones you liked, you can move onto seasons with similar themes (for example, if you liked ninja storm, you’ll probably like dino thunder next because it was written by the same people; if you liked rpm i would go back to lost galaxy or lightspeed rescue for more of the same tone)

also power rangers dino thunder (2004) is a standalone season but it features tommy oliver (from mmpr) as the mentor (but don’t worry, you don’t need to know anything about mmpr to watch it), and it also has a really nice episode called legacy of power which summarizes all of the past seasons of power rangers, so i would check that out and see which ones catch your interest!

finally, i would suggest watching power rangers ninja steel because it’s the currently airing season and it only has eight episodes so far and it’s super cute! and you don’t need to know anything about past seasons to watch it and it has a built-in fandom of active bloggers right here on tumblr :) it’s gonna be on hiatus till probably august so you have time to catch up~

hope this helps! again, i would def recommend just looking through the beginner’s guide and seeing what sounds most interesting to you. and if you have any questions or just wanna talk about which seasons you’ve seen, my askbox is open! <3

Felicity’s League of Assassins

I will be the first to admit that there’s a lot about this season I haven’t enjoyed, but I wanted to talk about one of the things I am enjoying. First, let me preface this by saying, it is no secret that I absolutely loved season 3. I thought it had some of the best character development across the board for the characters on the show and to be honest, character development to that magnitude is something we haven’t really seen since. Except, I think, til now. Which is why I’m trying to give season 5 a chance.

To an extent, Felicity is living Oliver’s s3 arc. Everything that Felicity has been through is coming to a head this season and honestly, it’s about time.

Fy Faen - Detailed Analysis of Sana Majorly/ Other Characters Minorly (Not in the exact order of the clip)

Guys, I’m actually on the verge of tears. Sana looks so left out. So heart broken. This is too much, you guys. Again, another outstanding episode, but I swear to God this is extremely sad.

Honestly, I’m not having this love triangle shit. It’s horrible to see Sana like this. She really cares about the girls so she wouldn’t say it to their face, you know? I wish I could say the same about the girls though.

It’s been two years, and they still don’t understand Sana. I’m pretty sure that it wouldn’t be so hard for them to ask her about how she feels about things. What makes me even more upset is that they only ask her about her opinions or how she feels about things when it benefits them, or at least that’s what I’ve seen until now.

The boy squad treat her WAY better than this. You can especially see the care in Isak and Even’s eyes, although we have only seen one clip with them together.

Another thing is that the moment Sana sees Noora talking to Yousef is ALMOST the exact same as the moment in season 3 where Isak is at the door and he sees Even and Sonja. The hurt in their eyes is just the same. The look of ‘I can’t really do anything about it is the same’ but it’s worse for Sana. You know why? Because Noora is supposedly one of her best friends.

The Big Bang Theory: “The Locomotion Reverberation” Review


My Top Ten Thoughts on The Big Bang Theory, Season 10, Episode 15:

10. I’m not a big fan of the opener, to be honest. Why aren’t they supportive of Sheldon wanting to make the device even smaller? Wouldn’t that open the possibility for more money from the government. I thought it was a little tiring to see Leonard and Howard being so cold to Sheldon. I want friendly Howard and Leonard with Sheldon!

Originally posted by all-i-loved-i-loved-alone

9. Oh my gosh, that Leonard and Sheldon hug, though! PRECIOUS!! Any time Sheldon hugs someone, it’s magical.

Originally posted by shennyhq

8. Okay, so Halley’s cry is still funny, I don’t care what anyone says. I lost it when Penny turned off the baby monitor and the cries were actually louder!

7. Sheldon being super excited about the Train Trip is about like me prepping for any anime convention…how can anyone not love Sheldon when he’s excited?! I get Amy getting overwhelmed, but still…happy Sheldon!

Originally posted by pilesofsmile

6. Of COURSE the government wants the smaller system that Sheldon was working on! There you go, Howard and Leonard! That’s karma for you!

5. I wish Raj and Stuart wouldn’t argue! Why can’t they get along like they did that one time? Come on, writers…quit having them fight and be the adorable godfather pair they are!?

Originally posted by tbbt-faves

4. “I may have just left my infant with Patrick and Spongebob.”
     HA! Sassy Bernadette is the best Bernadette.

3. That said, it was really sad seeing the three of them sobbing in a bookstore parking lot. Why should Penny feel pressured to have a kid?! Why should Amy feel pressured?! I do agree that some of the “young magic” has changed from seasons past, but I would like for them to do fun things instead of just complain about adulthood.

Originally posted by thatonegrahamkid

2. “Hello?! I have a girlfriend; I’m already King of the Train Store.” Can we all just appreciate how even when he’s subtle and nonchalant, he can be so sweet with lines like this? Bravo, Sheldon! Damn straight, King of the Train Store!

1. Okay, okay…I’m not panicking about that train scene…not panicking…not….panic…king….OH. MY. FANGIRLING. SELF.

Kennett endgame

I would have Kennett be a thing from season 3 


And there’d be a Cinderella moment where the whole room stops and goes silent momentarily because she looks so beautiful. And Bonnie brings a date but Kol spends the whole evening watching her so much so that he even gets distracted from his plans with Rebekah involving breaking Matt’s throwing arm, which is just as well considering how cosy Matt and Rebekah get once they’re in the parking lot.

Instead of that random doctor, Alaric was mulling around with Kol would spot Bonnie in the bar playing pool (because she didn’t want Caroline to be alone in the bar with Klaus etc). He almost doesn’t recognise her in plain clothes but recognises the eyes immediately. Obviously, Kol starts flirting, Bonnie is having none of it and ignores him until he becomes too irritating to ignore.

Then there’s a lot of back and forth, Kol flirts even harder and Bonnie without meaning to flirts back even just a tiny bit. It becomes quite humorous because every time Kol goes anywhere near Bonnie she moves away in the other direction, so it turns into a slow-motion game of chase around the pool table. (Which is even funnier when you remember that Kol is a vampire)

Kol shocks Bonnie because he can immediately tell she’s a witch and even confess to knowing a thing or too about Bennett witches and their magic but as soon as Bonnie enquiries further Kol passes out because one of his other siblings is daggered and Alaric rushes Bonnie out of the bar.

I’d have a million moments all through season 3 and 4 like the first eye sex moment they had together. Just subtle little flirtations here and there. Somehow, Bonnie would always end up being the one thwarting Kol’s plans and besting him. Which intrigues him just as much as it frustrates him and he finds himself completely fascinated with Bonnie.

In the second hallway scene instead of trying to attack Bonnie, he finds her and subtly threatens her and she not so subtly threatens him back. He says something along the lines of “I know you’re plotting against me and my family, It won’t work. So I’m giving you the chance love, as I said I have a soft spot for witches especially ones as pretty as you but I only have so much patience, so don’t push me”

And she smiles and asks if he considers this pushing him and releases the spell from hell and paralyses him and runs.

Maybe I’d kill Kol - only not by way of either of the Gilberts because that was just insulting - and I’d have Kol come back and ask Bonnie fro her help at graduation and she’d say yes OR I’d have them team up o something else and Kol would help Bonnie control her magic and might even steal his mother’s grimoire for her to use and to piss Klaus off.

At the end of season 4 when the Originals are leaving I can see Kol seeking out Bonnie who asks him if he’s going to NOLA with Klaus and Kol responding by saying that he’s going as far away from his siblings as possible and the then cheekily asks her to come with him Bonnie, laughs at him, scoffs and declines even though Kol was being serious. He tells he she can’t stay in MF forever she asks why not, ‘lots of people stay in the town they grew up in’ and Kol responds with you’re not most people Bonnie Bennett’

The next time they see each other is when Bonnie agrees to go to New Orleans with Caroline. They become a couple on The Originals and Bonnie becomes stronger than ever as a witch.



Season 1 Character Screen Times

So this whole project started for me because (for some reason I have yet to discern) I wanted to determine screen times for characters throughout the season. In my last post, I pointed out a few overall trends with female screen time vs. male screen time as well as Kara time vs Supergirl time. In this post, I will be showing each character’s screen times per episode throughout the season. 

To start with: Kara Danvers

Mean: 27:51    Standard Deviation: 6:53  

Most Screen Time: Episode 9 - Blood Bonds   Least Screen Time: Episode 17 - Manhunter

Out of everyone, Kara unsurprisingly has the most screen time overall. There are only two episodes where anyone beats her out. The first is “For The Girl Who Has Everything” where Alex beats her out (partially because I do not count an unconscious character’s screen time.) The second is J’onn in “Manhunter” which focuses on his past and Kara does not play a huge role. Other than that, Kara has the most screen time of any character in every other episode. 

Mean: 12:09    Standard Deviation: 4:24 

Most Screen Time: Episode 13 - For the Girl Who Has Everything   

Least Screen Time: Episode 18 - World’s Finest

Next up is Alex Danvers. After Kara, she has the second highest average screen time. In 10 out of the 20 episodes, she is the character with second most screen time. She is also one of only two characters to ever have more screen time than Kara. 

Mean: 8:39    Standard Deviation: 4:04

Most Screen Time: Episode 15 - Solitude   Least Screen Time: Episode 19 - Myriad

Not much to say about James’s screen times except that he does have at least a couple minutes per episode. His screen time ebbs and flows a little but overall stays fairly consistent. 

Mean: 8:04    Standard Deviation: 4:27

Most Screen Time: Episode 13 - For the Girl Who Has Everything   

Least Screen Time: Episode 18 - World’s Finest

It’s unsurprising that J’onn’s screen time starts out pretty low. It starts to pick up around Episode 7 - Human for a Day where he reveals himself to Alex. It picks up again at Episode 11 with the visit of the White Martian. Essentially, the more we learn about J’onn, the more screen time he has, which makes sense (because the more we learn about him, the closer he and Alex get). 

Mean: 7:42    Standard Deviation: 3:45

Most Screen Time: Episode 11 - Strange Visitor From Another Planet  

Least Screen Time: Episode 10 - Childish Things

Cat features pretty consistently throughout the season. It’s easy to understand why people miss her. Her top three episodes are 1) The one with Adam, 2) the one with Livewire and 3) The one where Max Lord decides that her mind is too beautiful to waste.

Mean: 6:39    Standard Deviation: 4:18

Most Screen Time: Episode 10 - Childish Things  

Least Screen Time: Episode 11 - Strange Visitor From Another Planet

Last but not least is Winn Schott, the trusty best friend. It’s easy to see how Childish Things is about him and it’s easy to see how in the episode after he avoids Kara because she turned him down. Other than that, he features pretty consistently in each episode. 

This chart shows the total screen times for each character. Kara, of course wins with a grand total of 9 hours 16 minutes and 54 seconds. Both of her alter egos individually are still able to beat out the character with second-most time (Alex). I was personally surprised to see that Winn actually had the least overall time of the regular characters, even less than Cat and J’onn. 

Anyway, here’s a lot of graphs and numbers. As always, if you have any requests or questions feel free to message me. Next post will show the results of my survey so stay tuned!!

Little Tour Recap

The first time I went to the tour last year, it was so incredible and absolutely surreal! This time it was somehow even better!

I GOT TO MEET SHARNA! Sure, it was only for a hot second at the meet and greet, but STILL. THERE SHE WAS! SHARNA BURGESS IN THE FLESH! (My 4th meet and greeter was Gleb.) The meet and greet was even faster than last time because they did it in between the first show and our show. I tried to hug all of them, but Val wasn’t letting go of Laurie so Laurie was like, “Group hug!” And I definitely got me a Val air kiss. It happened. I heard it. It was glorious. But most importantly, I got to tell Sharna how happy I was to meet her and that was all that mattered to me. She told me she loved my shirt and I turned to her as I was walking away and told her how nice it was to meet her and she said something very sweet I’m sure (it’s all a blur!) and was holding my hand as I walked away! I’m still not sure I didn’t imagine it all!

Meeting Jenna and Hayley might have been my favorite part. I confess I had little interest in Hayley (until I saw her contemporary with Val because holy crap), but she was still so nice. And Jenna was AMAZING! I got a quick picture with them as I was walking to my meet and greet, but then I got to see them again on the way out. I was able to actually talk to Jenna! I told I was so happy to meet her and how she was the one I really hoped to meet. I told her I loved everything she did with James and Sharna and how I hope she gets a chance to be a pro again. Of course she said, “Me, too!” She was the absolute sweetest. I’ll never get over it. 

After all that, the dancing was just a bonus! Loved every bit of it! I admit I was worried there would be too much Laurie, but there was a lot less of her than I expected. Especially dancing. They didn’t do Cell Block Tango which was a disappointment because that was the only one of hers I wanted to see. 

I absolutely loved Hayley and Val’s contemporary. And Jenna and Artem’s. Everything Sharna was in because it’s Sharna. The jive with Val!!! (And we’ll get back to that in a sec.) Keo’s special number was so cool. “Unsteady” just about killed me. Val and Jenna’s thing with Val’s journey in life was pretty spectacular. One of the highlights for sure.

Two last important things:

1) If you didn’t see my post earlier, this happened: So Val was talking about the season and saying how it was great win or lose. And he was talking about the other couples and he said, “We had James Hinchcliffe and Sharna Burgess.” So of course I screamed like a lunatic and waved my arms frantically from 3 rows back and VAL POINTED RIGHT AT ME and said, “Yeah! There you go! There you go!” I swear it was the best moment of the entire night!!! Well, one of the best. It was a pretty good night!

2) If I didn’t already ship Val and Sharna, I would now. Holy shit. They are just magical together. That jive was absolutely ridiculous. I can’t deal. I can’t do it. They’re perfect. 

Pictures coming eventually!

Firstly loving your SK stories, typos and all! I was hoping you could give me some good RK authors/stories, I know you write them too but they aren't your main ship. I've grown a bit bored of the SK stuff, it all seems to be the same rehashed stories or just pornos (excluding yours and a few others). I don't know where to start though and I saw you did a kastle rec list which was great, any suggestions? I don't want a 500 word porno, I want angst, drama, humour and all that good stuff!!

Hello Lovely!

I’m so glad you’re loving my SK stories. I have a blast writing them and I always try to write something unique into everything I do. I have plans for a chapter RK piece, but I have to finish a couple of things, before I can commit that that one. :)

The Dark Side of Sun series: A re-telling of the end of the Season 3. The first part of the series is complete and the second part is in progress. This has a complex storyline and a lot of heart in it.

Having regained her true form she takes a dying Kate hostage as leverage for what she really wants: to make a slave out of Richard Gecko. Richie’s not about to let Kate go without a fight, even if that means paying the ultimate price to save the girl he loves.”

Cupids Chokehold series: AU series with a Kichie established relationship and Seth trapped with his crazy wife Vanessa. I LOVE this series I laugh until I cry every time. It is spectacular!!

Her Makeup Stains by Dearxalchemist
Three years of culebra slaying has passed before Seth leaves her. Kate embarks on her own personal crusade to continue the good fight. She takes matters in to her own hands and does whatever it takes to get the job. She’s borderline reckless and plays the role of bait to lure out the monsters. Kate embarks on a night of dancing. The music is pulsing around her, blocking out the world as she closes her eyes and tilts her head back. This is her church now and the fellowship is an old face she never expected to see again.

Other Kichie pieces:

Monsters by gaslight_skellington
Summary: “Seth showing up unannounced she could imagine, and handle – her relationship with that Gecko had never been quite as complicated as her relationship with this Gecko but truthfully, she didn’t think she wanted to see them again; her life was normal and dull, but it was finally hers and she was content with it. The Geckos showing up two years after she’d left them could never mean anything good.
“Hello Kate.”
She shivered at the sound of his voice and the intensity in his eyes and then scowled at herself for allowing him to see how he affected her. She decided anger was better than angst and glared at him, going on the defensive immediately.
“What are you doing here? Please tell me this is just a coincidence and then leave.”
“You don’t think for a second this is a coincidence, Kate. And I’m not leaving without you.”

Bits of Three by  theredhoodie 
“The innermost thoughts of Kate Fuller during her interactions with one Richie Gecko.”
 - That one is short but I always liked it.

@nuritxu - Great content there as well: Tumblr

And there are others. Please feel free to reblog and add on. I wish I knew everyone in this ship a little better. I’ve been buried in my own writing lately. This should give you a good start though. 

Just remember I’m a multishipper for this fandom and I’m not trying to start drama. If you aren’t a fan of Richie and Kate, just move on by. :)
Be supportive and be kind.

Shadowhunters Season 3

Everyone knows I’m such a Malec stan and they are one of the major reasons I watch the show, but like I’m also really excited for so many other things too. Imagine Clary growing into a more mature shadowhunter. Simon learning about what it means to be a downworlder/daylighter. Izzy making it past the whole drug storyline and coming out of it stronger than ever. Jace getting some of the happiness he deserves. Alec learning how to be soft and in love, but also being the best goddamn leader the New York Institute has ever seen. Magnus continuing to be a kind compassionate protector of the downworld. Luke growing as a father, an alpha, and a role model. Yes, I am ready for season 3.

Skam without the texts

Can you imagine watching skam without the textmessages?

I can’t…

Because then I wouldn’t have know that Isak will never hate Even. I wouldn’t have known that Isak texted Even and told him to let him know if he wanted to talk. I wouldn’t have known Jonas had texted Isak to know if he talked to Even already. I wouldn’t have known his mom was looking forward to seeing Isak in the church he was baptized in I wouldn’t have known Vilde heard gossip about Even and confronted Isak with it. They had a little misunderstanding about her intentions, but she apologized for it. I wouldn’t have known that even tho Isak wasn’t in school on Monday, he texted Sana to hand in his assignment. I wouldn’t have known Magnus is just the best bro EVER! Just supporting him and helping him in understanding Even just a little bit better and letting Isak know no one is the same.

Overall I wouldn’t have known just how wonderful Isak’s friends are and just how much they all grow with everything they do.

And this is just from last week.. You miss all these things if you don’t know about the website and how skam works.. And I feel so bad for the people who don’t know this..

mostlylarp  asked:

Do you think Kataang might have worked better if it had happened earlier and had time to get complicated? It probably would have annoyed people who wanted to get on with the plot but it might have avoided the "hero gets the girl" final episode business.

Well, it was introduced in the pilot episode, so…

No, it was its scripting in Book 3 where I find it impossible to track.

Like, to me it felt as though Zutara was the foregone conclusion for the series when Book 2 was airing, and it made sense to me, albeit it was a tropey assumption. Then “Crossroads” hit and we had that amazing subversion of Zuko’s redemption arc (maybe my favorite moment in TV history), and also Aang “giving up” Katara with the chakras and all, so I had no clue what to think. I didn’t care enough about shipping to ponder it deeply, but it was like Aang was on this jedi-path, and I couldn’t imagine a situation where Katara could work through her feelings of betrayal with Zuko within one season. Which is still something I cling to. I could see ATLA ending on a trajectory headed for a Zutara romance, but I think as presented it still wouldn’t have been the best writing in the world.

Clearly they intentionally countered the whole “heroes cannot love” thing (Iroh tells Aang he was smart to choose love, though the Rock of Chakra Convenience is still just an atrocious way to go about it. Korra found the inner strength to open hers…), and I’m happy for it. But how Bryke went about scripting the romance in Book 3 is nothing short of a headscratcher for me.

Ya know what, I’m putting this below a jump-cut. Here’s the full account of why I’m personally struggling to really feel compelled by this pairing, even though I adore the complications of their adult lives and family, and would never trade Bumi, Kya, and Tenzin for anything. I hope we can all be friends after this? If you enjoy it, power to ya, and I’m happy you found this aspect of ATLA fulfilling.

10 (anti) parallels of My most favorite episode / My least favorite episode

Dedicated to my dear BFF @devilishly-handsome-pirate thanks for another great request Querida!

So up until the mid season finale aired, my least favorite episode was “Manhattan”, but after that fiasco we’ve seen in that episode, I had to push it for second place. Now after doing this parallel, I’m glad that I did, because this parallel between the most epic, well built, well presented adventure, and the ridicules episode we’ve seen a few weeks ago had to be made.

During my preparation of the gifs, I came once more to the conclusion that what bothered me the most in that episode was that every single one was acting so out of character besides Regina. 

Emma who was the most unlikely version of princess Emma who grew with her parents, King David and Queen Snow that raise their daughter to give up and surrender,  David in the real reality that yelled at Hook and blamed him for not knowing where Emma might have gone, Hook who seat around waiting for Regina to bring Emma back, all calmed down and relaxed. No one (again, except Regina) was acting like themselves.

On the other hand, the season 3 finale brought out from each character his best version of himself/herself. Especially for Emma and Hook of course. For Emma there was a before and after this adventure. She grew so much and learned about herself and her emotions. Hook was being the hero once more and now in the most epic way to that day.

There’s even nothing to compare between the writing of these two episodes. In the season 3 finale there was so much thought given to every single detail. I don’t think there was one plot hole in it. While in the last episode there were so many things that didn’t add up, and felt like disrespect for the viewers and the fans.

All that is left for me to say is that I wish someday the show will be able to repeat the amazement of the season 3 finale. Nothing will give me more pleasure than to have another episode to call my most favorite and push this one to second place.

Send me a parallel/anti-parallel and I will turn it into a 10 parallels gifset
