one of the main reasons why i love her

Some Pidge Headcanons

- Pidge is the kind of person who would rather try to find a free version of a program instead of actually paying for a program

    - Either that or she just makes her own program

         - Everyone would go to her so she could get them free stuff

- When she’s bored she just makes a fake profile on stuff like club penguin and neopets and just dick around with the system and trolls people

       - She’s been banned like 57 times on club penguin ALONE but she just works her way around the system

- Her interest in tech stemmed from wanting something on her computer but she can’t access it yet

        - “Dad, why can’t I find out what NASA is hiding from us?” “It all in their files, it’s confidential” “Oh really >:3c”

- Gaming becomes one of her favorite things, she was always interested in how it works

         - The main reason her sleep schedule is so messed up

- The relationship between her and Matt is like “I’m gonna call u an asshole and put pink hair dye in ur shampoo but I still love u with all my heart”

     - She’s definitely the kind of sister who comes in, leaves the door open and walks away

- Pranks are her thing, don’t mess w/ her

    - They’re always super elaborate and well-planned and she never gets caught

- She always secretly wanted shorter hair bc she didn’t want to deal with it

      - But people always used to say she looked like Matt so she didn’t want them to look even MORE alike

- Her interest in aliens and conspiracy theories started as a joke but then she fell down the rabbit hole

    - She saw all the evidence and people’s point of view and she was convinced that there were aliens out there and that the Zodiac Killer is Ted Cruz

              - You know alienmemes420? Yeah, that’s her on forums aggressively proving that her theory is right

                       - She actually came across Keith on one of these forums and even argued with him but she never knew his actual name

                                     - This skill actually came in handy because she was able to figure out the twist at the end of the season months before anyone else 


endless list of favorite characters + Haley James Scott

“ I’m usually one of those people who likes the first day of school. You know, new pens, new books, new backpack. A nerd. Exactly! “

I’ve been talking a lot of smack about Descendants 2 but I do genuinely love it so here’s some good things about it

  • Jay was gonna put Lonnie on the team and was confused about why Chad didn’t want her on the team
  • Uma’s character screams power, not even in the traditional sense just by virtue that a lot of people respect her, worship her and nothing gets done on the isle (or at least a section of it) without her approving of it.
  • The costume design, makeup and hair on Uma was spot on
  • Carlos insinuating that one of the main reasons he doesn’t want to go back to the isle is because his mother is verbally abusive
  • Ben saying that Mal & Uma aren’t so different and that she’s right to be upset about being left on the Isle.
  • Harry being fine with being Uma’s first mate and respects her authority
  • Mal’s arc about having to be true to herself and not needing to change for Ben’s sake.
  • The fact that both Mal and Uma are so extra that they can’t even make a hostage transfer without breaking into a rap battle
  • Mal’s new look (later on in the movie, not blonde!Mal)
  • Dizzy, for the love of god protect this ray of sunshine!!
  • Jay circumventing the “captain and 8 men” rule by making Lonnie captain since it doesn’t specify the gender of the captain.
  • Carlos actually wanting to be included in girl talk and wanting to support them. Both Carlos & Jay wanting to feel like Mal & Evie can come to them for support.
  • The soundtrack was excellent!!
  • It really looks like the entire cast had a lot of fun making this movie and that warms my heart.
My Top 10 Anime Ships/OTPs (spoiler alert for some of the shows)

10. Levi x Petra

Levi x Petra is a rather subtle/ambiguous ship. They might not even have had anything going on between them, but the subtlety is what I love about the ship. I didn’t even think of Levi as the kind of guy to have any romantic relationships. But the very first time I watched AOT, I thought that if they were going to write a romance involving him, this implied/subtle ship is a good way of doing it.

Besides, I seem to have a thing for angst.

9. Rock x Revy

At first, I didn’t think they’d make a good pair at all. I mean Rock was just this average guy who seemed kind of wimpy compared to Revy. It was the fight scene where he stands up to her that completely changes my opinion about him (and their relationship). As the show went on, we could see Revy looking out for Rock. A lot. It was nice to see her soft spot. It was nice to see that one of Roanapur’s deadliest mercenaries needed the innocence and kindness of a (not so average) Japanese businessman, and would risk her life just to protect him.

Also, that cigarette kiss.

8. Satoru x Kayo

They’re so cute! Yeah, I know about this ship being “pedophilic”, but I have to disagree with that statement. 

My first impression of ERASED was a man who has regrets over what happened when he was 10 years old. A man who has the memory of a lonely girl in a red coat lingering in his mind. So when Satoru goes back in time, I see it as a second chance. A second chance to be 10 again. A second chance to make things right. 

So I don’t see it as a 29 year old stuck in a 10 year old boy’s body. I just see it as a man who became 10 years old again, but with 29 years’ worth of memory. 

But…is it weird that I’m glad one of my favourite ships didn’t happen?

Okay. Lemme explain. As I continued to watch the show, I realised that the show was more about a boy becoming a hero than a boy-saves-girl kind of story. Even though I was really upset about the ending at first, I ended up accepting it, and even becoming glad about it.

It would be unrealistic for Hinazuki to wait 15 years for Satoru. She’d be wasting the life he gave to her. But just because she married someone else, doesn’t mean that she ever forgot about the boy who saved her. He still remains a very important person in her heart. And he always will. 

In the end, I can only remember SatoKayo as a moment in time. A short, sweet time in their lives when they meet the person who will change their lives forever. It’s a kind of bittersweet beauty for me.

So I am glad about the ending. In a sad-glad kind of way.

7. Hitsugaya x Hinamori / Ishida x Orihime

I can’t choose between the two.

Anyone who’s seen my blog knows that I ship Hitsuhina. It’s a cute-angsty kind of ship that I wish I could see more of. 

Uryuhime is a painfully underrated ship. I know that some people ship IH because they love Orihime and want her to be happy. Well, I love Orihime too. But that’s why I can’t ship her with Ichigo. Yes, Ichigo does try to protect her, even to the point of turning into a monster to fight Ulquiorra (though he was also thinking about protecting Uryu). But that’s kind of his number one goal - to protect others. One of the things that made me not ship IH is the way Ishida looks at Orihime. It’s different from the way Ichigo does. He’s the one who knows her, protects her, understands her, and loves her. I think he’s the best guy for our princess.

6. Fakir x Ahiru

Aka the only ship I ship that breaks the first girl/guy rule. I’ve never seen a lead-girl-ends-up-not-with-the-main-guy kind of ship done so well. I can go on and on about the reasons why I ship Fakiru. 

But you know what, GO WATCH PRINCESS TUTU!!

5. Minato x Kushina

NaruHina? NaruSaku? SasuSaku? Forget about the shipping wars, this is my OTP from Naruto. I think what really got me into them is how Minato loved Kushina’s red hair, which she thought was ugly. For someone to love the very thing that you hate the most about yourself, the part of you that you feel is the ugliest, I think that it’s a beautiful thing.

4. Ichigo x Rukia


Screw you, Tite Kubo.

3. Roy x Riza

Picture says it all.

2. Ashitaka x San

This is my favourite Ghibli ship. Hayao Miyazaki’s films were what got me into anime in the first place. 

I’m not sure what it is I like about San and Ashitaka so much. I guess it’s the same reason I love movie - their scenes. Nope. These scenes are not the shoujo, lovey dovey kind of scenes. They’re powerful scenes that not only define their relationship, but also the movie itself. 

When Ashitaka first sees San, when he calls her beautiful, when she takes him to the Forest Spirit, when she feeds him, when he talks to Moro about her, when he tries to save her from Nago, when she stabs him and he responds with a hug…I can go on and on about this ship.

I’m not as passionate about this ship anymore, but I’m putting them at no.2 because of the impression they’ve left on me.

1. Soul x Maka

I think this is the first OTP I really fell in love with in anime. Ever since I saw how Soul protected Maka from Crona, I’ve been spiraling deeper and deeper into SoMa hell. I love their bond. I love how they argue but care for each other deeply. I love how they’ll support each other no matter what. I love how they’re always together. I love how they truly are partners.

SoMa even gave me the standard for my other favourite anime ships, namely Royai and Ichiruki. I’ve heard that your OTP reflects what you actually look for in a relationship.

Well, this is what I look for in a relationship. I don’t just want someone who will make butterflies flutter in my stomach. I want someone who will understand me. I don’t just want romantic dates or kisses in the rain. I want someone who will be there for me through all the hurricanes in my life. I don’t just want someone who will throw romantic gifts at me. I want someone who will truly care for me, and I for him. I want someone who will go together with me on this adventure we call life, someone a can share a real bond with.

Sorry for the long rant. And thanks if you managed to reach the end of this post.

I’m tagging @herprettysmile to make a top 10 anime ships list (if you have time or if you haven’t done one already)

My Life As A Teenage Robot: My Thoughts and Why This Show Needs A Reboot!

So today is a very special post in my opinion! 

Recently, I believe a week ago, I rediscovered one of my favorite shows that I used to watch when I was little! 

That show… well you already know because of the title of my post! LOL!

So yeah, I am now part of this fandom! 

So I remember so much about this show!!! 

I remember XJ9! AKA, Jenny! 

I also remember all of the beautiful designs of the whole setting, and of course the weapon designs! 

I remember the level of awesomeness and fun that this show has!

This show, in my opinion, is basically a Superman type of story. 

A creature that is either from a different world or a creature that is built to defend the human race, is now part of human life, and gets to discover what humans are actually like. 

So that is really interesting and it also makes the main lead very relatable and likable.

So before this post, I researched this show again and watched some old episodes. I even watched the video “107 Facts ‘My Life As A Teenage Robot’ That You Should Know About.”

So… what do I think about the show?

Well, it’s really really good! 

So what is so good about this show you may ask?

Well, lets list my reasons why! 

1. The beautiful 2D hand drawn animation! 

2. The character designs are very unique and creative! 

3. The characters are funny, likable, and relatable! 

4. The action scenes are fun! 

5. The settings are unique and creative! 

6. And the story about a robot girl who wants to be a regular teenager is very intriguing and interesting! 

It’s just really interesting, and Rob Renzetti, the creator of the show, wanted this show to continue! 

But unfortunately, that never happened. 

Because according to wikipedia and tvtropes, it was cancelled by Nickelodeon due to low ratings from season 2. 

Season 2 ended in 2005 and season 3 never aired until 2008! 

And the finale of the show didn’t really feel like a finale. It just felt like a random episode that could’ve been put in any other episodes, not the series finale!

I wish it continued!!! 

It’s such a very cool concept and it can be rebooted today! 

And before I tell you more reasons why, I wanna tell you something about one particular ship that I am loving for this show!

And Jenny is one of my many fictional character crushes!!! 

So what is the ship?

Sheldon X Jenny!

So this kid above is Sheldon Oswald Lee.

He is the main supporting character of the series.

He is friends with Jenny and he has a huge crush on her throughout the whole show! 

He at times would fall under the geeky kid who stalks the main female character trope. 

Well he does that, but only for a few episodes.

Everything other than that, he is a very nice and sweet guy towards Jenny! 

He is cute, funny, likable, and just a very fun character! 

And the show was short lived and we the fans never saw them being a couple. 

Turns out, according to the wikipedia page, the creator himself have stated that if the show lasted longer, the two would’ve been a couple! 


This reboot can have better animation and there can be new stories! 

I would recommend this show being on Disney XD!

With its lineup of great shows like Star vs. The Forces of Evil, Gravity Falls, Wander Over Yonder, and the upcoming DuckTales reboot, this reboot can be added to this channel as one of the great animated shows of the modern era! 

That’s my take! 

Comment about your thoughts!

Nancy Wheeler, Sweet Summer Child; Jonathan Byers, Salty Winter Adult

I was just obsessing over Nance and Jonathan’s many wonderful scenes (esp. in 2x06) and after going through the Jancy tag and seeing other people’s posts I realized just exactly how much we’ve been absolutely spoiled by the Duffer Bro’s.

First Off:

Jonathan covers himself up? And tells Nance?? That “Steve asked him to take her home”??? My son?????

Why are you hiding?


I feel like this really cements the idea that Jonathan is this sweet kid who is so caring, so giving, and so shy. He’s always looking out for Will and his friends, Joyce, and - of course - Nancy.

His protective traits really stood out even more this season and for some reason that just makes me so happy. It’s most likely because the Duffer’s have given us a male lead (? idk, they’re all mains to me) whose character’s essences (eg. love, compassion, patience, etc.) are ones that would be considered ‘effeminate’ or ‘soft’. A lot of people have commented on the nice balance/destruction of stereotypical gender roles in Nance and Jonathan’s relationship, and I think that it’s just such a beautiful thing to behold on a popular show, which is probably why we Jancians love them so much.  


Throughout the Great Jancy Roadtrip, they’re constantly asking if the other’s OK or if the other’s sure about this that and the other thing and there’s just so much support between these two beans and I’m thriving.

Give me all the healthy relationships.


When they’re in the hotel/motel/idk, it’s Nance who asks Jon about ‘what happened’ between the two of them. This is important to note because:

1) Nance took initiative and started prodding into a most likely sensitive area between the two of them

2) It means that Nancy had been - and apparently up to that very moment in the hotel was still - thinking about the two of them, in that context

And I feel like that would be a normal thing to think about, really, considering all the stuff those two went through together (shared trauma folks, the real shite mhm). And this leads into the idea that Nance probably started - unknowingly - falling for Jonathan around the time that they started their Monster Hunting business back at that shop, and then probably realized it sometime after Christmas*.

She had been waiting for something to happen. She had been waiting for them to happen. And she was still waiting, even then, a year after the whole shindig that was Season 1.

Numero Four

Jonathan Byers, Salty Winter Adult, soft bean, son of my loins, Slayer of Demogorgons and Protector of Brothers, Respecter of Women and all-round Gentleman, shyest thing on Earth:






Y’all. The emotional and psychological implications/significances of that one brave moment. Hnnnn.

I say “that’s my baby and I’m really proud”.


(This post was meant to be more meta-ey but I’m tired and it’s midnight and I should go to bed hehehehe)

Hypothetical plot outline for “Spider-Man 2: Prom”

(For simplicity sakes, I won’t really mention Infinity War. Let’s just say, this is set after Thanos’ defeat)

Peter Parker is in his junior year of high school and is now an experienced crime-fighter. Unlike Homecoming, he now has solid footing as Spider-Man, such as being able to intimidate bad guys and his web-swinging is far smoother than before. Ned becomes his official “guy in the chair” and even has his own “Spider-Lair” set up.

Which is his bedroom of course.

Also, Michelle joins “Team Spider-Man” when it’s revealed that she knew about Peter’s secret identity from the very beginning. We get a brief recap of scenes from Homecoming, but this time from MJ’s perspective. MJ joins as the “other person on the field” besides Pete. 

Rounding out Team Spider-Man are Aunt May and the newest main character, Gwen Stacy. For MCU Gwen, I had Sophie Turner in mind.

Originally posted by robynfenty

Aunt May is the den mother of the group while Gwen joins as the investigator a.k.a. “the girl in the chair”. Also, Gwen finds out about Peter’s identity early on in the film when Peter gets knocked out during his first fight with the movie’s main antagonist, Kraven the Hunter. While dragging Pete to safety, Gwen accidentally takes his mask off. Gwen decides to keep his secret by joining Team Spider-Man. Her inclusion in the team is not received well by MJ, who believes that Gwen is hiding something.

Also, yeah, there’s a love triangle subplot between Peter, Gwen, and MJ. HOWEVER, I want to emphasize that MJ is the one clearly favored by the movie.

Going back to the main plot, the MCU Kraven the Hunter is revealed as a big game hunter who fled to America in the 1910s after the Tsar fell during the Russian Revolution. The only reason why he is still young and fit is because he feeds off a de-aging serum developed by OsCorp. When OsCorp discontinues the serum, Kraven wages war on the company in order to get either the last sample or the formula in order to find someone to replicate it. Also, he decides to hunt the Spider-Man in order to add his head to his “collection”. 

For Kraven, I had Rory McCann in mind (wow, two GoT actors in a row).

Originally posted by bisexualsweeney

While the fight with Kraven goes on, the high school side of the movie focuses mostly on Peter and MJ’s friendship/budding romance. Continuing off of MJ’s “observant” arc from Homecoming, it’s made obvious from the start of the movie that MJ is crushing hard on Peter. Meanwhile, Peter is a bit lost when it comes to his love life since Liz moved away and he’s still coming to terms with the events of Infinity War. 

That’s mainly where Gwen and MJ come in. Peter bonds with them both, with Gwen intentionally reminding Peter of Liz (the popular girl who everyone likes) and MJ being lowkey jealous. MJ eventually decides to step back, deciding that Peter will never look at her the way he looks at Liz and Gwen (you can just hear the inner angst) since she’s the weird girl with no friends. However, that’s when Peter makes his move. 

Around the same time MJ steps back, Peter decides to pursue her since he’s slowly returning her feelings. While he likes Gwen, Ned and Aunt May helps him realize that MJ’s been there since the start and despite her attitude at times, she’s always been there for him. In my head, his big eureka moment is when MJ gets him a new backpack with a note that says, “Heard you lost your backpack, you dingus”. Something like that. 

The turning point is when Gwen asks Peter to prom. He politely turns her down and runs off to find MJ to ask her instead. Peter asks MJ to prom and she happily accepts. On the night of prom, it’s even revealed she went out of her way and got a gorgeous red dress (another allusion to Mary Jane Watson!) 

Now…here’s where the big plot twists start coming in.

Kraven goes after Norman Osborn in order to find the last remaining vial of de-aging serum. By the way, for MCU Norman Osborn, I had Jeremy Irons in mind.

Originally posted by we-arethewildthings

While holding Norman hostage, Norman’s daughter comes home. It turns out, Gwen Stacy is his daughter. The MCU Gwen Stacy is an amalgamation of Gwen and Harry Osborn (her full name is Gwen Harriet Stacy-Osborn).

Norman is forced to hand over the last of the serum, which Kraven takes. However, he keeps Norman and Gwen hostage since he wants to lure the Spider-Man out (Kraven, at this point in the movie, knows that Gwen is friends with Spider-Man since she saved him earlier). In order to raise the stakes, Kraven goes after the rest of Gwen’s friends, reasoning that if she’s friends with Spider-Man, then surely some of her other friends know him as well.

He pretty much kidnaps the entire academic decathlon team, right on the night of prom. When Peter learns MJ and Ned have been kidnapped, he goes into righteous anger mode and takes off into the night to face Kraven. 

While Peter and Kraven have their fight, MJ, Gwen, Ned, Norman, and the rest of the academic decathlon team manage to escape captivity thanks to Ned’s computer expertise. Before they can escape, Gwen and MJ stay behind to help Peter. Gwen takes matters into her own hands and enters an experimental pod designed to enhance a person’s abilities. She reasons that in order to fight Kraven, she needs to be more powerful than usual. However, what she doesn’t realize is that the machine drives its subjects insane. 

So Gwen emerges as the Green Goblin, but as a hero only for this movie (she’ll be the main villain in the third one). Gwen and MJ head off on the Goblin glider to help Peter. For the final battle, all three of them contribute to Kraven’s defeat. MJ disables the traps and destroys the serum, and Gwen and Peter take Kraven down. Kraven is spared since Peter has a no-killing rule.

Also, he’s spared since we need Kraven for the Sinister Six. 

This is where Gwen’s sanity breaks. Instead of thanking her, Peter rushes off to MJ to make sure she’s alright and we get a kiss. Already disappointed in him because he turned her down for prom, plus some deep-seated father issues and her mind pushed to its limits by the experimental pod, Peter and MJ’s moment pushes Gwen over the edge. But instead of going after them, she goes after her dad. 

(There’s a subplot about Gwen having father issues since Norman is a shitty dad)

There’s a short battle where Peter fights Goblin-Gwen while MJ escorts Norman to safety. Eventually, Gwen takes off into the night when she realizes that she can’t beat Spider-Man and that the authorities are arriving.

With prom ruined, Peter and MJ decide to have their own dance in the remains of the Osborn mansion. The academic decathlon team joins in as well, with Ned dancing with Cindy Moon (that’s the ‘my friends call me MJ’ moment of the movie, when Ned’s date reveals herself as Cindy). However, the dance is cut short once again when the group hears sirens in the distance.

Peter wants to stay but MJ tells him that he needs to go save the day and that they have plenty of time to dance afterwards. Movie ends with MJ saying the famous line, “Go get em, tiger”, and Peter takes off into the night. 

Of course, since this is a Marvel movie…


Set a few minutes after Peter leaves, a meteorite lands by MJ, Ned, and the rest of the academic decathlon team. The Venom symbiote slowly makes it way into Ned’s backpack. 


Aaron Davis drops off his nephew, Miles Morales, at his school. For Miles, I had Caleb McLaughlin in mind.

Jon Snow is playing Cyvasse

*Note I’m assuming that whatever Book!Aegon is attempting to do with Daenerys, he will not succeed. Therefore I’m lumping him with Quentyn Martell in this meta to contrast them both with Jon Snow. I may be wrong here, but I think they are supposed to be foils for Jon when he enters Dany’s plot.

When you read the books you get the impression that Dany’s storyline is raining men. And you would be correct! It’s ridiculous how many men are coming to her and how many expect to win her favor. I’m going to list them and classify them according to their relationship and goals. “Political” means that they are seeking her for the purposes of an alliance or to enhance their own goals.

  • Drogo - married; requited love; political
  • Daario - in service to; requited love
  • Barristan - in service to; personal/political
  • Jorah - in service to; unrequited love; proposed marriage
  • Xaro - proposed marriage; political
  • Hizdar - married; political
  • Quentyn - proposed marriage; political
  • Euron/Victarion - seeking marriage proposal; political
  • Aemon - wanted to be in service to; personal
  • Tyrion - in service to; political
  • Varys - in service to; political
  • Marwyn - seeking ??
  • Aegon - seeking marriage proposal; political

Just look at that list! Mother of god. 

Can this woman please pursue a man instead of the other way around? CAN SHE AT LEAST ONCE FEEL THE REJECTION THAT SHE HAS DEALT OUT? Variety is the spice of life, in art and fiction. It’s also why lumping Jon in with all of these other men (Drogo? Daario?) is so offensive to his character.

Just from this list alone you have to wonder: where does Jon Snow fall? Well, he looks pretty typical. Jon Snow - in service; political.

HOWEVER, from that huge list, I think what sets him apart is that he will be her first “unrequited love” - meaning, sex is used politically. This wouldn’t be a precedent for the show/books: 

Cersei - using sex with Robert to make her bastards look legitimate 

Littlefinger - giving Lysa a convincing kiss. Do I even need to explain his motives?

Margaery - no shame here, willing to use what she’s got to be THE queen

A theme running through Dany’s House of Men is that their goals are political, not romantic. Other than Drogo and Daario, the main difference between Jon and the other men on the list is that HE LUCKS OUT AND SHE ACTUALLY FALLS FOR HIM. This is why he’s the “one to love” in the prophecy. But is Jon in love with her? I think this is what makes him similar to those men - he’s being cold and calculating in his goals. He’s still being political. I honestly believe Tyrion was wrong; Daario WAS the last to love her. Evidence? Just look at him on that list - he’s one of the very few who isn’t interested in her for political reasons!

Another reason I believe Daario is the last is because Jon Snow is playing cyvasse. 

The chapter where Tyrion plays Aegon/Young Griff in cyvasse contains intriguing foreshadowing for Jon’s strategy in S7. I think GRRM is using this scene with Tyrion and Aegon to illustrate why Jon is successful while all of these other suitors have failed. Jon wins because he plays the game well. Moreover, he has a special wild card that Aegon lacks: an intriguing backstory and an honest reputation.

Like every other man on the list without a brain, Aegon thinks he can woo Dany for a marriage/military alliance. Tyrion tells him “don’t be so sure there dude!” He gives him advice. This advice just happens to mimic the plot of S7, omitting a few details. Tyrion, who hasn’t even met Dany yet, has her accurately pinned down as someone who acts on her emotions. He encourages Aegon to exploit that. I think this is exactly what Jon is doing with Dany.

I will excerpt passages from the books where Tyrion and Aegon are playing cyvasse, and explain the passage as “moves” that Jon makes in the game.

an unpopular opinion but one of the reasons i love harry and ginny way more than ron and hermione is because it felt more relatable to me? ron and hermione are an amazing will-they-won’t-they ship and i enjoyed them immensely but i could never relate to them? it feels more natural to me to get feelings for someone unexpectedly like harry did with ginny because that’s how it normally happens with couples in real life. harry started liking ginny because he liked hanging out with her and she made him laugh and isn’t that how relationships and crushes normally start? because in my experience that’s how they usually happen. i don’t know why everyone is so obsessed with giving the hero an epic fairytale love story when we got a more natural and realistic one? i’m incredibly grateful that jk rowling wrote harry and ginny like this and did not give the hero a repeated love story trope.

Rose Tyler: Defender of the Earth

During July, my Meta Monday posts will all be about Doomsday. Today I’m tackling a popular fanon and explaining why I don’t subscribe to it. 

I discovered when I started writing fanfic that a lot of people believe Rose only fell because the Doctor tricked her into going to Pete’s World. The thought is that if she hadn’t taken a second round trip through the Void, she would’ve been able to hold onto the lever the few extra seconds necessary to stay in our universe with the Doctor.

On the surface, that’s a plausible idea. Additionally, it plays into the recurring theme in Ten’s run of him overreaching–arrogantly making choices for someone else–and that having serious consequences. (If you think about it, the Master only had an opening to become Prime Minister because the Doctor had deposed Harriet Jones…) 

So why do I reject this headcanon? Two main reasons–the narrative doesn’t support it, and it diminishes Rose’s role in Doomsday. 

Originally posted by z-little-watermelon

If the cause of Rose’s fall is the extra Void stuff she collected on that second trip, then there’s no reason for her to let go of her clamp. That entire sequence with the lever shifting to offline and Rose letting go of the clamp to push it up again is absolutely unnecessary if she was going to fall because of the Void stuff. 

When you only have 45 minutes of screen time, you focus on the part of the story that matters. The episode gives no screen time to the idea that Rose’s fall is a direct result of the Doctor’s actions. There’s no line from the Doctor about it being his fault, how Rose would have been able to hold on if she’d had just a little less Void stuff on her. 

In contrast, there’s a full minute devoted to her lever moving offline, the struggle to reach it and push it back up, and her subsequent fall. In the middle of an action scene, anything that gets a minute of screen time is The Point of the scene. If RTD wanted us to believe Rose’s fall was the Doctor’s fault, he’d have been better served using that minute later in the goodbye scene for some sort of line from the Doctor, as I mentioned above.

“But Nancy, if that’s true, what’s the narrative point of the Doctor sending Rose back to Pete’s World? If that didn’t happen just to make it possible for her to fall, why did he do that?” 

Good question! And one with two answers. 

  1. That’s a character moment. The Doctor has a pattern of making choices for Rose to keep her safe. This is very much in character for him. 
  2. Rose’s choice to immediately come back raises the stakes for the conclusion. She tells the Doctor that she’s never going to leave him. She’s determined. Being with the Doctor is the life she’s chosen, and nothing will sway her from that. Then less than ten minutes later, she has to decide between staying with the Doctor, or saving the Earth. She has to decide, in essence, to break her promise to him.

And now we come to the other reason I dislike this particular bit of fanon. It strips Rose of all her agency in a scene that should be a powerful choice that she makes

If Rose falls because of the Doctor’s actions instead of her choice, then her sacrifice is empty. She was always going to fall anyway, so what does it matter that she chose to let to go of the clamp?

That clamp represented safety. When she pointed out to the Doctor that they’d all be pulled in because they all had Void stuff, he held up a clamp and said he’d just hold on tight. The implication is clear: the clamp will keep them safe. And to reinforce that message, Rose doesn’t really struggle at all to hold on when she’s got her arm latches around the clamp. It’s not until she chooses to let go of safety that her fate is sealed.

The power of Doomsday’s climax comes from Rose’s choices and sacrifice. She’s sent to safety once, and she comes back because she chooses the Doctor over safety. And then when she’s given a second chance at safety–the clamp–she lets go of it when the choice is between her safety, or saving the Earth. 

This is her “I could save the world, but lose you” moment. Just like the Doctor in World War Three, she has the obvious means to save the world, at her fingertips. And just like him, she knows that saving the world will mean losing him–though in this sense it’s metaphorical. The Doctor won’t die if she saves the world, but they will lose their life together. 

And notice that Rose is stronger than the Doctor in both scenes. In World War Three, she is the one who accepts those consequences and tells him to do it. In Doomsday, as soon as her lever clicks into the offline position, the Doctor begs her to hold on. He knows the options as well as she does, and he can see the decision on her face. Instead of offering unwavering support like Rose did, he begs her to choose her own life. 

When it comes to a choice between Rose and the universe, Rose is always more accepting of the consequences than the Doctor. 

Rose willingly lets go of the clamp that had been holding her in this universe, with the Doctor, because she knows it is the only way to save the Earth. She falls as a direct result of that choice, which makes her loss a sacrifice she chose. 

If we make this scene all about the Doctor’s actions, we strip her of her agency in the middle of her most powerful scene. A Rose who was always doomed to fall to Pete’s World because of the Doctor’s trick never had a chance to stay, which means it doesn’t matter what choice she made when the lever moved to offline. 

In a way, I understand the appeal of this headcanon. It adds more pain to the Doctor’s thoughts and self-recrimination later, if he can blame the whole thing on himself. But outside of the fact that I doubt he had any problem blaming it all on himself regardless (that’s one of his superpowers), I really don’t like where that train of thought takes us. 

Do you want to strip the female main character of her agency in order to cause more pain for the male main character? 

Outside of the narrative reasons, which I believe are compelling evidence that this was not the intent in the script, this is why I reject this headcanon. It takes a key scene in Rose’s life and makes it about his pain instead of her choices, and that is the exact opposite of what I love about Rose Tyler.

anonymous asked:

Can you do a short description of each member of Seventeen on who would be the big spoon and who would be the little spoon? Maybe telling how each of them would cuddle too?

I love getting questions like these! Feel free to send in any questions or requests, I always am willing to answer them! xx

S. Coups: Seungcheol would be a switch, but most of the time he would be a big spoon. Being the leader and all, I see Seungcheol wanting to protect his girl at all costs and holding her close to his chest while they cuddle would make him feel powerful. He would have her head rested comfortably against his broad chest, their legs tangled together while he leans his head on top of her smaller one. The only time Seungcheol would be the small spoon is when he would be feeling upset or stressed about something. Then, he would willingly allow his girlfriend to hold him close to her own body as she strokes his head gently to reassure him that everything will be okay.

Jeonghan: I feel like Jeonghan would be a switch too. Like some days he would prefer to be the big spoon while other days he would just want to curl up in a ball and let his girlfriend hold him. If he were being the big spoon, Jeonghan would have his arms wrapped loosely around his girlfriend’s waist, but also making her feel secure at the same him. He would be the one to run a hand under her shirt and stroke small shapes on her back, slowly making her fall asleep. If he were being the little spoon, he would rest his head on his girlfriend’s chest, having his arms thrown loosely around her body while his girlfriend would run her fingers through his hair gently. He would always feel so relaxed when he is in her embrace.

Joshua: Joshua would be a big spoon. I feel like Joshua gives of this vibe of dominance and always wanting to be the one to do things for his girlfriend. He would find it cute if his girl would try to spoon him by wrapping her arms around his waist from behind, but he would win over the dominance by flipping her over in his embrace so he could lock her in his hold, playfully and gently. He would want to have her as close to his face as possible so he could stare at her beautiful features. He loved the ways he would watch her eyes flutter shut once she finally falls asleep before he would push her hair behind her ear, kissing her forehead gently in the process.

Jun: Jun would hands down be a big spoon. I’m pretty sure there are times when he would want his girlfriend to hold him, but I don’t think it would last very long because he would just love the fact of holding her so close to him every night. He would be all pressed up against her, his lips always planted upon her face. His hands would be firm on her hips, lifting her shirt up slightly so he can feel the warm skin on his girl’s hipbone.

Hoshi: Soonyoung would want to be the big spoon, but I feel like he would probably give in half way and just want to be the one cuddling his girlfriend. He would be so extra and remove his grip from her so he could crawl into her embrace, shoving his face into her warm chest as he did so. He would wrap her thigh around his torso and wrap his own arms around her middle. He would love it if his girlfriend would run her fingers through his hair as she would hold him. There is nothing he would love more than the feeling of being his his girl’s embrace.

Wonwoo: I’ve always seen Wonwoo as a more submissive kind of person over dominant, so I really think he’d be more of a little spoon over a big spoon. I feel as if he would rather be held than holding his girlfriend. He would love holding her close to his chest, but despite how much he loves it, he would love it even more if his girl held him in a strong embrace. he would nuzzle is nose into her neck, leaving cute little butterfly kisses all over her neck and collarbones. Like Hoshi, he would love it if she would run her fingers through his soft hair and maybe talk quietly to him about how her day went as they snuggled, slowly causing Wonwoo to fall asleep.

Woozi: I know how everyone says Jihoon is all dominante and everything, but I really see him being the one in the relationship to ask his girlfriend if she could hold him. This would be his favorite part of the night, especially when he would come home late after producing and working hard to practice all he would want to do is strip off and climb into bed. The feeling of his girlfriend snaking her arms around him from behind and pulling him close to her body, kissing right in between his shoulder blades would bring a warm feeling to his stomach and would just relax him. He would love it when she would trace shapes on his own skin, and maybe pet his head a little bit. He would let out the cutest sound of contentment as he finally fell asleep in her arms.

DK: Seokmin would be a big spoon. He’d always been seen as the type to be more submissive in his relationship and I think that’s the main reason why he would try and be dominant. Despite him being all soft and mushy for his girlfriend, he would have sworn to be the one to protect and hold her from the beginning. He would hold his girl so close to his body to the point where she could almost not breath. But being in his arms would make her feel so secure that she wouldn’t even care. I feel like Seokmin would be the type to wrap his thicc thighs around his girl and just kind of hold her in between them like that. While it would seem weird at first, but I think it’s a habit that she would get used to and she would grow to love her boyfriend holding her so tight while scrunched up in a little ball.

Mingyu: Mingyu is a switch. I don’t care what anyone says about him being so dominant and protective, Kim Mingyu is both a tall giant and a small child. Most nights he would be the one to hold his girl close to him. I think it goes to speak for itself on how a tall lanky noodle would hold her. Her legs would be tangled with his own longer ones, his strong arms wrapped securely around her waist and her own around his neck. He would subtly kiss her lips every now and then until he fell asleep. If he were the small spoon, he would be so cuddly to the point where his girlfriend would debate on pushing him off of her, jokingly of course. But he would be so submissive when she would become the big spoon. He would nuzzle his nose into every body part on her body and would leave light kisses everywhere, and I mean everywhere. But he would overall be so cute and fluffy and would basically just curl up against her in a little ball and let her hold him until he fell asleep.

The8: Minghao would be a big spoon. I think a misconception a lot of people have of him, and this is just my opinion, is that he is so innocent. And while I kind of believe that might be true, and I can’t speak for myself because I don’t personally know him, I have always seen Minghao as a dominant person. He would be the one who would always want to hold his girlfriend and never let her go. He would have one of his arms wrapped tightly around her middle and his other around her shoulders so his hand could support her head as he held her into his chest. He would have his chin resting upon her own head and he would ocassionally lean down slightly to kiss her hair. He wouldn’t want to let her go when morning would come and would whine if his girlfriend tried to leave his embrace. After she would fight him about having to leave for work, he would just look at her with a pout until she would give in and crawl back into bed with him.

Seungkwan: Seungkwan would be a big spoon too. I know a lot of people see him as both, but I feel like he would be more dominant over his girlfriend. The only time he would really let her be the big spoon is when he is upset, really tired, or if she would use her best aegyo on him to the point where he had to give in. But usually that would rarely happen. He would be too scared to hold her tight in fear that he would crush her. But as the night would go on, he would slowly tangle his legs with her own and tighten his grip around her. He would snore quietly against her temple where his lips rested and he would play with the ends of his hair mindlessly in his sleep. He, much like Minghao, wouldn’t ever want to let go of her and would beg for her to stay with him instead of leaving.

Vernon: Vernon too would be a big spoon. I’ve always seen Vernon as one of the more manly members in the band, despite everything I’ve seen on him being so innocent. He would be kind of shy when it would come to sleeping with his girl at night, mainly because he wasn’t used to it. Vernon would be more of a hugger than a cuddler so his embraces would seem more hug like. He would have one arm under his girlfriend while the other would be on top of her as they lay next to each other. Throughout the night though, he would slowly pull his girlfriend’s head on to his chest so he could be closer to her. (I’m always so awkward when it comes to Vernon so pls bare with me)

Dino: Chan would be a small spoon. I think he would try to be dominant, like Hoshi, but he would only fail and give in. He would never admit it out loud, but the feeling of his girlfriend’s arms around his waist as they would cuddle at night drove him insane as his heart would pound against his chest and butterflies filling his stomach. He would love it so much to just put his face in the crook of her neck and placing small kisses to her neck as she rubbed his back gently. Occasionally he would find himself playing with her hair or whispering ‘I love you’s’ into her ear. And he wouldn’t want it any other way

Guilty - Alex Standall x Reader


Pairing : Alex Standall x Reader

Fandom : 13 Reasons Why

Warnings : none

A/N: *cough* grammar mistakes *cough* 

It was late. Your day had been a rough one and you were tired, but Alex brought you with him at Bryce’s. You were sitting by the big swimming pool, thinking about nothing, eyes gazing down on the clear water. You could hear Justin and Bryce shout, and the sound of shotguns from Montgomery’s videogame. You hated the fact that Alex spend that much time with them, because you knew he wasn’t like them. He tried his best to be like them, but he could'nt. He was so much different.You got out of your thoughts when you felt a hand on your shoulder. It was Alex, he looked particulary sad, but also pissed off.

“Hey.”  he said, sitting by your side.

“Hey, are you okay?”

“I don’t know, Y/N.”

“Alex, you can talk to me.” you replied, placing your hand on his cheek.

“I know, It’s just…I miss Hannah. Like, a lot. She was my best friend and I let her down. I’m so fucking pathetic Y/N, I wish I could turn back time and tear that damn list into pieces.” you saw a tear streaming down his cheek.

“Babe, don’t say that. We all let her down, don’t blame yourself for her death, it’s not your fault, and you should know it.”

“Have you ever heard of the butterfly effect?” he said calmly, staring into your e/c eyes, and you nodded. “Well, if I hadn’t wrote Hannah and Jessica’s name on the list, then nobody would’ve hurt Hannah, and Jessica would’ve still been her best friend. I started all of this Y/N, you can’t deny it !”

Just as you were about to answer, you heard Montgomery yell something about ’‘how bad of a player” Alex was. You rolled your eyes then took your boyfriend’s cold hands in your warm ones.

“Listen. I know how you feel, but we’re all guilty, Alex; you did something wrong, I did something wrong, Clay Jensen, THE Clay Jensen who was madly in love with Hannah did something wrong just by taking the wrong decision, and this fucker right there did something wrong” you said, pointing at Bryce. “But you know what’s worse ? What’s worse is that we’re hiding behind him. Look, everyone treats Tyler like shit because of the pictures he took of Hannah, but god know this kid doesn’t deserve all the hate he gets.”

“Y/N, I pushed a girl to suicide! I don’t care about who’s reason is worse, I just can’t live with the fact that I’m one of the reasons why she killed herself !” he said, letting go of your hands to bury his face in his.

“Standall, stop being such an idiot. Hannah needed to be loved and she needed help, but unfortunately we couldn’t see it. You are not the main reason why she killed herself. Bryce fucking Walker is, and you know it. He’s the one who made her take this decision Alex. He’s the one who should rot in jail right now, but instead, he’s having fun with his dear hypocrite friends “

“But I took away everything she had. I took away her best friend, I ruined her reputation. ”

“Justin, Courtney and Bryce did.” you added.

Alex shook his head and bite his lower lip. He knew how persuasive you were, and he didn’t want to fight with you, the last thing he needed right now was to lose you.

“Hey, come on…” you took his jaw in your hand and pressed your lips against his, kissing him softly. “We’ll tell the truth soon, I promise, it’ll be over soon.” he pulled you closer and you curled your arms around his torso, letting him rest his chin on top of your head.

“Thank you for being there… and for keeping me from taking more bad decisions. I don’t deserve to be with someone like you.”  he said, holding you tighter, leaving a small smile on your face.

"I love you, Standall.”

anonymous asked:

I love Sansa's "Alayne Stone" story for many reasons, but the main reason why is because we get to see a side of her that she always had, but she suppressed it due to her courtesies. We get to see her sharp-tongued, snarky, sassy side. Honestly, when i read some of the Alayne Stone chapters, i was so surprised. I was like "wait what? Did she just say this?!".

My favourite is the one in TWOW when she can’t stop salting Harry the Heir, lol, though it also gives me an… unpleasant/creepy vibe for reasons.

it’s interesting because we don’t know if that’s part of her naturally growing up, if she’s finding in her Alayne persona a way out of the social constrictions and taboos connected to her former status, or if she’s adjusting to people’s expectations of how a bastard girl should behave. Probably all of this. Bastards are invisible: they’re neither players nor prizes, and unless they overstep their boundaries nobody really cares for them. Sansa used to have the spotlight firmly planted on her, because of her heritage and status. Alayne is a nobody, the bastard daughter of a minor lord, and counts nothing—hell, she even looks like nothing special (something to remember in her future interactions with Harry), her gorgeous auburn hair replaced by a plain shade of brown and modest clothes. In part, she resents this invisibility (and sometimes forgets what’s her place, like that time when she “accidentally” wore Tully colors), but it also gives her an unique leeway, the opportunity to watch and learn things unobserved and unnoticed, make people spill their secrets and store them for later, not unlike Arya’s wanderings in Braavos under various aliases.

but bastards are also seen as untrustworthy, less moral than /regular/ people, thus less worthy of being treated with respect. They’re “wanton”: there’s no wench half so lusty as one bastard born, Marillion says as he proceeds to paw Sansa, who under Alayne’s guise has no longer her status to shield her from unwanted sexual contact, and is even expected to be enthusiastically available. I think she immediately realizes that she can no longer act like the sheltered, innocent girl she is (or used to be)—that persona worked as best as it could when she was in King’s Landing, but now it’s useless and, if anything, suspicious. 

So she creates a new one, one that’s older, wiser and more experienced, more worldly than what she really is. She models Alayne around the idea that bastards must fight for their right to exist since they moment they’re born. She adapts. She doesn’t drop her courtesies altogether, but she adjusts them to the new situation, hones a new, sharper edge to her still formally polite words. She gets bolder with LF in calling him out on his shit (though interestingly we get less of that in AFFC, when aunt Lysa is gone and she’s Alayne for everyone except him, as if she subconsciously recognizes him as her only source of power). She still blushes a lot, but she’s working on it. She gets practical, because “bastard brave” girls get shit done (see her assertiveness with Sweetrobin and the maester). I think there’s also a degree of trauma connected with how everyone saw Sansa Stark as “stupid” (to the point that she started believing it, or at least wondering if it wasn’t true) that now she’s shedding… by disassociation, but still.

anyway, yes. I totally wonder whether, once she sheds “Alayne” from her system too, something of the bastard brave girl will remain, and which parts specifically.

nichorello future? and more...

i have so many theories about this couple it is ridiculous. let’s point out some obvious facts tho.
1. lorna loves nicky (denial…sort of?) she will come to her senses as i will explain later on.
2. nicky loves lorna. obviously.
3. lorna needs nicky (again, she will find this out)
4. nicky needs lorna (to help stay sober)

i think nicky will be perfectly fine, maybe a few cuts and scraps, but she will survive. i mean why bring her back if the writers were just going to make her character miserable and then kill her off? it wouldn’t make sense. i mean maybe if the character was hated, but nicky isn’t all.

on the other hand, lorna. honestly, i don’t know. i feel like IF they get separated for a few episodes (maybe the first 4-6) , lorna is going to come to many realizations. the first one, obviously, needing nicky. second, receiving psychiatric help. i have a weird feeling that lorna is going to find out that nicky called vinnie and it’s going to change a lot for her. when she was outside before the separation into different buses, she thought that he just came back…from his own free will. if she finds out that nicky called him and basically convinced him to come back, well….nicky 1, vinnie 0.

i feel like there are so many possibilities when discussing lorna’s pregnancy.
1. lorna will lose the baby. there are two ways this could go down. one: miscarriage. two: somebody hurts her. both of these could cause lorna and vinnie’s fake and fucked marriage to collapse. why? because now vinnie doesn’t have the responsibility and might not want to be around anymore.
2. lorna doesn’t lose the baby. when nicky and lorna reunite (which they probably will, i mean, the
show wants to keep the audience captured…but also have an audience. killing nichorello would be a dumb decision that would affect their ratings. anyways, when they reunite, nicky will help with the baby. of course, this would lead to bonding time and change Lorna’s feelings.
3. i would LOVE to see a lesbian and a bisexual raising a baby. it hasn’t happened yet on the show with the last two pregnancies and i think it would add a little positive spark to the show…because it was lacking this season. we all know how oitnb loves to make points…so what about two people of the same sex raising a baby?

i wanted to also address vinnie. he is not able to take care of lorna nor the baby. hell, he can’t even take care of himself. he is what? 35 and shares a room with this brother at his parents house. and we are suppose to think they he can take care of a child for a full year? come on now. secondly, vinnie doesn’t really know lorna. i mean he hasn’t been with her and talked to her for more than a few hours at visitation. he hasn’t witnessed her outbursts in person. third, he ran away with the thought of having a child. not a good sign. it took him a phone call to convince him to come back, but i doubt it will be forever. vinnie isn’t going to last long. might be gone by the end of this season or next. i said this before. vinnie is the new larry. just a bump in the road.

i doubt that the entire season 6 will be shot from different prisons. the audience loves their ships, scenes from their ships, and everything the comes with that. if you separate all 3 of the main ships: vauseman, nichorello, and flaritza, for the entire season, its not gonna go well. people will be upset. fans will be upset. and i believe the writers know this.

i wanted to address something that a friend and i were thinking and talking about. i think there is more than one reason why nicky wanted lorna to not go with them. the obvious reason being that she wanted her and the baby to be safe. but i think there is another one. we witnessed flaritza holding hands and being close, yet got separated. do we honestly think that if lorna was with nicky down in the pool that they wouldn’t be holding hands and standin next to each other? maybe it means that they will end up in the same prison…who knows tho. just an idea to dwell over.
of course if they end up in the same prison, i still think lorna will come to the conclusion that she loves nicky, but it would take longer. we saw it in the hug. we saw it when she asked nicky to stay the 5 extra minutes. we know.

now a list of randomness.
1. i saw a comment that said if they killed poussey and soso’s relationship, they can do anything. i think there was a reason behind why they specifically were ruined. of course it was to make a point of #blacklivesmatter and the fucked up system we have in place. another point is that soso and poussey didn’t have a history together. they just got together and never experienced more time together. so if the writers were to create some drama and ruin a couple to create a point while simultaneously still having an audience, of course you would ruin a new relationship.
2. i feel like caputo is going to play a huge role in the first few episodes of season 6. i think he is going to really try and get the points that taystee and the rest were trying to get across. i think they are playing on the current political concept of the resistance and having people in power help out the ones who don’t necessarily have a voice. (caputo had power…inmates don’t).
3. litchfield will still be a main filming location. they aren’t just going to demolish it. it is still functional. the guards were just fucked. (might have to baby trap the prison tho because of frieda’s little hideout).
4. there is going to be vauseman issues. probably going to be separated. who knows with those two tbh.

in the end, when lorna is looking back, i think it actually hit her that she got what she so called wanted. a husband that says they will be there for her, but now she lost nicky. this is going to help her make her decision easier…i think.

to fully end it lol….lorna is in love with nicky, but not the idea of being with a woman…yet.
lorna is in love with the idea of being with an italian man and having a baby, but she isn’t in love with vinnie.
nicky loves lorna. plain and simple.
in the end, love will find a way. it may take a couple of seasons, but i believe nichorello is endgame.

anonymous asked:

I'm so effing mad! Westallen got two proposals and Olicity is still not even back together. It's not fair!

(I just got back from the gym and was making dinner when I got this email and I stopped everything to climb my sweaty ass up the stairs to sit down and answer this.)

It’s not fair?

You’re right, it’s not fair. 

To Westallen.

Wait! Hang on, that’s not right. It might not be fair to them if they had similar journeys to compare, but they are so radically different that to even put them in the same sentence is ridiculous.

I can’t speak for Westallen, I don’t watch The Flash, but I can speak for Olicity:

I don’t agree, lovely anon. I think it’s needed and it’s worth it.

Listen, the reason I love Arrow (and part of why I stopped watching The Flash) is that it’s dark as fuck and it doesn’t shy away from it. It is still a CW show so it’s not, like, HBO/Netflix/Cinemax levels of dark, but it’s still far more gritty and dark than the other shows. This means we’re dealing with a main character who has serious and severe mental and emotional shit to deal with, which has been the main point of his entire journey all this time. 

Oliver can’t have the life he wants because he still believes he doesn’t deserve it. He is still on the path towards realizing he does deserve it. The other shows are different, in many ways, but this is one of the main reason why Oliver and Felicity aren’t together (yet). It’s also the main reason why when they finally do get back together, when Oliver realizes he is worthy, when they understand each other better, when Felicity has gone through her own island, when they learn to forgive, when they learn to communicate and relate to each other and open up to each other… it will stick. It won’t be easy, but it will stick.

Arrow is frustrating beyond belief for about eleventy billion reasons, but the main thing - the main goddamn thing - that I love about it is that it’s satisfying. Not all of it, not everything, because this is still a CW show and it’s on a network that won’t let me see some damn side-boob or Amell’s muscular ass or hear the word ‘shit’ and ‘fuck’ every once in a while, but emotionally? In the grand scheme? For me, it’s so much more satisfying than the other shows and that’s why I’m super okay going through absolute hell to get to the other side. Season 5 has been incredibly trying, but I trust the overall arc, I really do.

Also, even if Oliver and Felicity had stayed together, it wouldn’t have lasted. They weren’t ready, which is why they broke up. The story we’re seeing now is their journey back to each other as far more stable and mature human beings who will also have the unique ability to say they can understand each other’s positions a little bit better. They had to go through all of the shit they’ve been through to get to a point where they will get back together, and stay together. 

Love is not a cure-all, love does not fix anything, love does not take broken people and magically heal them. It shows us parts of ourselves that we didn’t know were there, or parts that we deliberately ignored, parts that we need to face in order to become a better version of ourselves. Just because Oliver and Felicity love each other doesn’t mean they were ready to be together at that point. But, now? Now, they are getting there, slowly but surely.

And if you don’t think we’ll all fucking die when it finally happens, you’re wrong.

I lost my point a bunch of words ago, so long story short:

We’re going to get another proposal and engagement, and it will be fucking amazing because we’ve been through goddamn hell to get here so fret not, anon. 

Our journey is just a bit longer than theirs, and in my humble opinion, it will make the payoff so much better.

His hands trembled as the car drove on to the top of the grave yard. It’s been so hard since that night. He knew he shouldn’t have let her go with Jeff, but he was her best friend and he knew how stubborn she was when it came to him. They’ve been best friends long before he had ever met her. He parked his car on the small sliver of road. His heart is hammering now. It has been a while since he has last visited and the guilt was eating him alive. Out of the corner of his eye, he noticed how the grave yard light caught glimpses of purple from the bouquet of Lilac flowers that sat next to him in the passenger seat. They were her favorite out of every type, he never understood why before, but now he does. He remembered when she tried to tell him why she loved them so much.

“Why do you like Lilac’s so much? They’re so, plain.” Zach said as he looked over to his girlfriend who was beaming from the fact a bouquet of them was held tightly in her small hand.

“Because,” She began to reply. She couldn’t put it in words.

“Because the way I see it, is beautiful. The dark purple in the center is like our soul, dark, haunted, or tortured. But that tiny little white lining is hope. A hope of happiness and forgiveness. A hope of being loved and accepted, a hope of pure joy.” She replied breathlessly.

She looked to her boyfriend only to find him staring at her with a look that can only be described as wonder. A slight blush rose on the apples of her cheeks, making her turn away.

“Poetic much?” Was the only reply she heard, making a small giggle form in her throat. She nodded in agreement.

“What do you expect?” She laughed.

“Thank you though. I love them.” She whispered into the dark night, their faces only lit up by the eliminating light of the moon.

“You’re welcome princess.” He whispered back.

Zach was caught out of trance as he felt a watery substance fall graciously down his cheek. He sighed, and grabbed the flowers before exiting his car. He took agonizing steps towards the spot where her body was laid to rest. The bench he always sat on seemed to have vines growing all around it. More and more was visible every time he had a chance to come around. His breath caught as he read the name on the grave stone over, and over again.

                                                   Y/n L/n


                                          “Everything that is,

                                               Or that was,

                                       Began with a dream” –Lavagirl

He laughed slightly at the quote. It was her favorite movie besides Were the Wild Things Are. She was a dreamer and that was one of the main reasons why he loved her so much. She saw good in the world, when all he could see was the destruction of society. He sighed, his heart falling down into the pit of his stomach once again.

“Hi baby,” He paused. This was always so god damn hard.

“I’m sorry I haven’t been here in a while, School is getting crazy, basketball is getting too much, and I’m even beginning to give up on biology. I’ve been horrible. This world seems so cruel, and so lonely without you here. You always saw the good in it, and I was beginning to as well. But then after the accident, it just went cold. It felt like there was no more sunshine, I hardly see Jess laugh now, Justin is a mess and so is Hannah. She’s gone quiet and I don’t know how to make it all better. Do you remember what day it is today? It would’ve been our 1 year of being together. I miss you so so much, I’m completely losing it. I’ve had dreams about you this past week, and I wake up crying. I miss you so badly, and I love you so much.” Zach finished before taking his sleeve and wiping his eyes. Somewhere in between he began to break down. All the stress and guilt was eating him alive and it was physically destroying him.

He got up, his body pulling him away. He walked forward, and placed the bouquet of flowers on top of her gravestone. He sighed heavily before officially walking away.

What he didn’t see though, is a tiny stem, beginning to bloom. A dark purple color bursting out into the night, with that tiny little ring of hope.

anonymous asked:

i just really wanna know why do you hate cc ? bc if she is hella problematic i want nothing to do with her

my buddy my pal, how much time do you have?? because there is a lot of reasons….

- first of all she plagiarised her entire series from several other sources
- she has an incest fetish and actively tries to romanticise it in her books
- there’s also an attempted rape in the book that was romanticised by not only her but also book stans
- girl on girl hate everywhere
- she slutslamed show!izzy on numerous occasions
- genuinely shits on the show, even said she regretted signing the rights to it over but then tries to take credit when the show gets recognised (e.g. she recently tried to take credit for shadowhunters getting nominated for a glaad award)
- she cashes in on malec every chance she gets and claims she adores them yet shipped them off on vacation for an entire book, wrote zero communication between them, wrote alec as biphobic, planned on killing alec off in the first book, etc etc.
- doesn’t care for her lgbt characters - another example of this is that she sent aline and helen off to some island so she didn’t have to write about them
- another example is the immortality thing between magnus and alec in the books. she didn’t fix things between them but had no problem sorting the immortality issue out for izzy and simon.
- oh and izzy, alec, magnus and luke may as well of been non existent in the books because there was literally no character development for them
- she also makes it clear that she doesn’t consider Isaiah to be part of the main cast or luke to be a main character
- if someone even disagrees with something she does or questions it in the slightest, she lets her stans bully them. (there’s a whole post somewhere about how serious this got but idk where it is, sorry)
- again a huge love for incest, she legit wrote a fanfic? idk about Ginny and Ron from Harry Potter like tf? and also said she ships Damon and Stefan from the vampire diaries when they’re literally brothers yikes

there’s so many other reasons as to why I dislike her but these are ones I could think of off the top of my head. I’m sure if you look through the anti cc tag you’ll see a bunch more reasons, hope this helped :)


The story:

I have many issues with the story this year but in general terms it was ok. For some reason, American Horror Story hasn’t topped its better season “Asylum”, with 7 seasons already; there’s something missing.

American Horror Story: Cult, starts with election night focused in the two lead characters Kai Anderson and Ally Mayfair-Richards, one is Republican and the other is Democratic. We already knew this and we also knew that the main plot wouldn’t be the elections, the main plot is kinda the chaos that came after that.

Anyways, this season has good things and bad things IMO. It has good moments, good episodes, but overall is predictable, this supposed to be a realistic season with non supernatural elements but at some point it’s not realistic at all.

The first episode wasn’t memorable, there’s Kai trying to raise his position now that Trump is the winner and Ally fighting being terrorized by her phobias, isn’t really clear at the beginning if this is in her head or it’s really happening. The thing is that Sarah’s character being chased and scared is not something new, her character last season did the same thing and probably that’s why people were complaining about it. Obviously, things change after a few episodes and we get to meet a new Ally (Thank God)

Anyways, I have to say that I love the episodes “Neighbors from Hell” “Holes” “Mid-Western assassin” and “Drink the Kool-Aid” those for me were the better ones, it had some plot twist… there’s others I liked but not as much a the ones I mentioned.

I think one of the problems with this season is the consistency, we have great episodes and then we have the Valerie Solanas episode that IMO was unnecessary, why? It was too long, was her story really important for the main plot? I don’t think so, the other cults were short flashbacks but for some reason they dedicated a whole episode to Valerie Solanas, I didn’t get that. They let us know Bebe, yeah ok, so? Apparently she was the Queen Bee but died when we found out she was the Queen Bee. For me it was so unrealistic that in the first session with Kai she managed to convince him to create a crazy cult and Kai immediately accepted and did what she wanted and I was like what? Why don’t explore that and show us how she slowly got into Kai’s head? It’s unbelievable that in one session you can make someone to open to you in that deep level, like come on.

The motivations: to be honest, the characters had weak motivations, (I want to talk about every character but this is like a general point of view) when a character do something, you always ask to yourself why is this person doing this? And of course, you are waiting for a reasonable explanation. I wasn’t convinced at all of their motivations to create chaos, Ivy hating on Ally, Winter being Kai’s minion… I only believed Ally, because like it or not, she had real reasons to become the cold ass bitch she was at the end. I see Kai and I have nothing but hate for him, there must be a realistic reason for this young man that used to be a good person in general that actually helped people to scape from this crazy Christian fanatic to become a crazy ass psychopath that decided that killing innocent people in order to be city council man was a good idea, and don’t tell me that a Trump supporter will listen to a woman and make all this for women to lead because that’s bull shit. Even when he changed his mind at the end and decided that he was a misogynist asshole and he was the one with the right to become the leader, sorry but still… not very good motivations. Also Ivy’s motivations, really? I mean? Girl, getting divorced and having shared custody was way more easy than terrorize your wife and exposing your son to all that cruel shit.

I also saw that many people said “this doesn’t look like American Horror Story” well, that’s true and you wanna know why this doesn’t look like AHS anymore? The cinematography, we had Michael Goi as cinematographer for 5 seasons and yeah I can agree that the cinematography in Roanoke was beautiful Nelson Cragg did an amazing job. The thing is, Michael Goi knows better the AHS universe, I don’t even know why Ryan decided to let him go, the cinematography this season was BORING, I don’t know who made it, (someone please let me know) for me, it looked like a lifetime movie, sorry but this is the true.

Michael knows the narrative style, the aesthetic, Accomplishing a visual differentiation between time periods was one of the many aesthetic elements of previews seasons, this season was almost the same, you could see a little difference with the cult flashbacks but the aesthetic wasn’t good so it didn’t look great. Michael used to make different lighting for the same space trying not to duplicate the same representation of that space, but keeping the consistency so the audience could recognize the space. He also tried to emphasizes the dramatic moments so the audience could see the story’s arcs (I’m kinda quoting Michael here, I read this somewhere and I found it very fascinating) I didn’t see any of this in Cult, I mean AHS is well known for its consistency between the cinematography, set design and wardrobe.

Another thing was that we couldn’t enjoy the sets, the camera was almost always over the characters, I didn’t get to see the Butchery on Main for example, or Ally’s house, I wanted to know the space, I wanted to see the set decoration, there were master shots of the set in AHS and in Cult we didn’t get any. The frames in previews seasons were so beautiful and here it was I don’t know so normal, so… boring and if there were some master shots I’m sorry but I don’t remember, it means it weren’t epics at all. I just remember the way they showed us the Murder House, The Asylum, The Academy, The camp in Freak Show, The Hotel and even the Mansion in Roanoke. I miss that.

The Characters:

There’s a rule in American Horror Story, everyone pays for what they do. Yeah kai died, almost everyone died, so let’s say most of them paid but not Ally, yeah she was terrorized in the first episodes but she was a murderer and what happened to her doesn’t compare with what happened to Lana for example, Do you really think that Lana is actually happy? She’s not, she killed her son and she will have to live with that and we can see that in the final episode, even when she has a good life she’s still haunted for her past and her choices, that’s a good way to pay, Ally didn’t have any kind of remorse. Ivy deserved to die, yeah and I really enjoyed the way she died and for me it was more than fair that Ally was the one to kill her but she was the mother of her son, she was her wife and she lied about her death. So, Ally getting away with that wasn’t ok for me, everyone in this season deserved to pay, it would be awesome if Kai could expose her before his death, Ally in jail and finally everything will be fine for those innocent people out there at least for a while.

Kai Anderson: like I said before, his motivations were weak, I compare Kai with Frank Underwood in HOC (let’s forget about KS for a while and let’s focus in the character) this character is so well written, in this case I wanted to be on Kai’s side like I am with the Underwoods. This is how you write an antihero and even more if this antihero is the leader of a cult, let us love him for a while and then let us open our eyes and see how awful this character is, he was the clear villain and that’s predictable, we hated him since the beginning so when he dies it’s not shocking at all because yeah he was the villain. I never found Kai relatable or charismatic, some random guy with blue unwashed hair that lives in his parents basement would never convince me to follow him as a leader and even less to kill for him, I would run away as fast as I can, so his little monologues to convince people were so cheesy and so “seriously, are you gonna believe that shit?” he convinced in literally 10 minutes someone he barely knew to kill like… that’s not how it works, you have to be so dumb to fall for that. Also, I think that picking just one Cult leader to be your idol would be enough instead of passing for all those cult leaders (this is just me, like I said, personal opinion, if you disagree, that’s ok, people like different things)

Ally: probably the best development, even when I hated the fact that she got away with her crimes, I have to accept that her transformation was really good, I understand that you can’t get over your phobias over night but come on, we have only 11 episodes… there’s no time to be realistic here, so yeah, it was great to see Ally leaving her old self behind and becoming a totally new person, we really needed this, and that was very well done. Now I understand why she joined the cult and everything because they explained it, and I’m so grateful for that. I have to say that her motivations were very real, she wanted her son, this people tortured her and she needed to tear that cult apart. But, I don’t think she’s a feminist, she was selfish and to be honest you could see that she was thinking in herself and not her son, she uses her fame for her own gain, sorry not a feminist. Also if she was with the FBI why did she kill speedwagon? She could use him to help her? Another innocent died and she had not remorse. And please don’t say that Lana did the same with her fame because Lana deserved all that, she was rape, she was in the asylum only for being gay, she got electroshock, she got her rapist baby, she was tortured in a basement I mean come on… do not compare Ally with Lana. That’s way I say Ally deserved to pay for her crimes too, otherwise her winning is predictable.

Ivy: I really wish Ryan could give us for the first time a healthy couple, it’s not that hard… I was rooting for Ivy, I refused to believe that Ryan would be this predictable by making her the bad one, after that I hated her a lot (I love Alison Pill, tho, great job) I mean, her motivations, JESUS H. CHRIST (let’s quote Constance Langdon) girl, getting a divorce it’s easier than killing people and torturing your wife and son, you hated her because she was the biological mother and because she voted for someone you didn’t like? And also you spend 10 years hating her without saying a word and pretending everything was fine when it wasn’t? you made yourself miserable and that’s not Ally’s fault, in a relationship people talk, people say how they feel, why don’t do that? So yeah, you deserved to die because you were a two faced bitch. Also, the cliché part… you cheated on Ally with the nanny… wow… original. I hope she’s in the next season, tho.

Winter: when I saw Winter’s poster I said, this character will be epic, sorry it wasn’t, she was just a minion and never took a side, she only got 2 scenes to shine and that was unfair, I also was doubting about Billie’s acting skills because she had always the same expression for every situation, the same monotone voice, Winter was boring and that’s a fact, when she died I was ok with it because for me she wasn’t relevant (Not Billie’s fault) she was really good in 2 episodes tho, so I hope to see her next season with a most interesting character.

The Wiltons: how to have a good couple and ruin it in two episodes, my fave was Meadow, she was funny and Leslie was awesome, Billy had his moments too… I love the second episode just because of them, and I enjoyed seeing their background, too sad that Meadow died too soon because I really loved the episode with her and Ally, I don’t have anything wrong to say. Good characters.

Dr. Vincent: I was shocked when I found out he was Kai’s brother and I’m glad he didn’t know anything about the cult, because once you get to know that he was related to Kai and Winter you immediately think that he was part of everything since the beginning, I was happy I was wrong, but I did find cruel that Ally let Kai to kill him, he was innocent and didn’t deserved it but I guess we are used to see Ryan sacrificing characters to advance in the story line… so it’s fine.

Samuels: he was irrelevant… let’s move on

Gary: nothing to say about him, he was another peon, her death was unnecessary, but ok.

Oz: this child was amazing, I loved when he called out Kai, that was awesome, he was super smart and I’m sorry he had those mothers, but again… parents in AHS sucks, just look at Constance, The Harmons, The Lowes, Fiona etc. I would love to see him again, such a talented child.

Berverly Hope: I think she made sense, I’m glad she didn’t die because she was a victim, and I’m so glad she was the one who killed Kai, I think she deserved that in order to move on with her life, she was the only one that actually tried to do something, I enjoyed Bev a lot.

Bebe Rabbit: uhmm, I love Franny and I’m so sorry she had to play this character.

So, in conclusion, this season isn’t bad but isn’t good either, it’s in the middle and it’s almost in the bottom of my list, I don’t think this is the kind of season I would watch again (same with Hotel) it had its moments but it’s not better than Asylum like many people have said, it’s not even close.

PD: I’m pressed because Lily Rabe wasn’t in this season, the holy trinity of AHS is dead… I’m so tired that Ryan doesn’t give the recognition she deserves, I want her as the lead and I want her alive.
