Because I love to go back and overanalyze every single Malec scene and find meaning in every subtlety, I just noticed in this scene after Magnus says “…different?” and Alec agrees that Magnus looks so heartbroken. The realization of their differences is daunting but he looks like he’s trying to gather any strength he has before he faces Alec again, thinking that he’s going to lose him for good. This makes me appreciate the moment when Alec turns around and chooses him even more, because they’re both saying “bitch I’m the one who will be deciding what I deserve.” Goddamn, Harry plays the hell out of this role. Bless his soul and bless Matt for being the most perfect Alec.
Also, we all know how this turned out 😏🙃 (definitely my favorite kiss of 2A).
i think the thing that
bothers me most about sakura hate is this whole “fangirl” thing toward
now start at the beginning
of the manga and you can see a girl with a crush on a boy. yes, i agree that
her desires at that time didn’t seem the most genuine because it was merely
a crush. keep going on though and you see it blossoming time and time
again, from his movements to protect her on missions, from his decisions to
talk to her even when he didn’t have to, from him praising her analytical
capabilities, she could see more of sasuke through his interactions with her;
she started to catch a glimpse of the boy behind the uchiha fan and pain
attached to that very symbol. she sought to understand him more, she put
herself on the line for both him and naruto in the forest of death. yes, you
could say she loved both of her teammates but because of the previous
implications of her growing crush, her love for sasuke would be more than
platonic already, it would be romantic and real love that took time, as real
love does. even in the scene of gaara in the form of the shukaku coming
directly at sasuke, sakura immediately (without second thought) jumped in
the way to protect whom her heart belonged to and this display of selfless love,
left gaara aware of it and hurting over it. the hospital scene, tsunade and
naruto were both left glimpsing the way sakura’s very being ached for sasuke’s
wellbeing. kakashi saw it for years, knew it, commented on it and even called
it out to sasuke. sai knew her intentions even when she was giving naruto a
false confession. as she made the decision to kill sasuke herself, later when
she chose to confess to him again, and even later when she tried with all her
might to bring him back from another dimension, her actions still couldn’t be
proved as something selfish or as childish as a mere girly fan of a cute
unattainable boy. Even years after he was still teaching her so much about
himself through his interactions with her and she still coveted understanding
him and helping his very soul.
so i guess from the first
blush on a pink-haired kuniochi’s face in a classroom seated next to the last
of an infamous clan, to a forehead poke so much time later and a daughter whom
embodies traits of both mom and dad… it was always sasuke that sakura loved.
no infatuation or crush would withstand what her heart willingly went through,
for his own sake.
you can say sakura was a
fangirl and i agree on some level. because she was and
always has been a fan of sasuke, just the real sasuke, the one he could have
been and should have been before all the damage was done so many years ago when
a young boy walked in on a murder committed by the very sibling that taught him
to love. she knew what he could be given time and she never gave up on him but she did recklessly abandon her own heart just to make sure he would become what he could be.
a crush… it would fade
without reciprocation. yet sakura’s love for
sasuke was the forefront of all her actions, unending.
she was the one who saved
his lonely existence with the emotion called love. kishimoto himself showed it,
said it, and spent years trying to convey it.
she was a lot of things to sasuke, but sakura was not a fangirl.
Remember that time Ben wanted to trick Leslie by planning a bunch of gifts and giving them to her the day before their anniversary, but then, when Leslie got tied-up with her job and couldn’t be there for his surprises, instead of making her feel bad for putting her career first or pressuring her into sacrificing work for their relationship, he just took pictures of all the things he had planned and gave them to her in a scrapbook?
We need more examples of genuinely happy, healthy relationships on TV and in books and in films. No more of this bullshit about how real, epic love is painful and impossible or deadly. Love should not break you! Love should make you stronger. (insp.)
