otp: just because he loves you doesn't mean i don't get to

anonymous asked:

AliveHales Headcanon: Derek has no problem with teasing and bantering but he's a bit sensitive underneath his growls. His family in general and his sisters in particular frequently honestly hurt his feelings. Cora doesn't know when to stop and Laura has a knack for going for his emotional jugular. He hates feeling embarrassed especially in public but he's resigned to it because protesting or asking them to stop makes it worse. They don't mean to be hurtful but it doesn't bother them so (1/?)

they don’t get why it bothers him. This goes on until Cora brings Stiles home one day. Stiles has been crushing on Cora’s hot older brother for ages but Derek always avoids him (Derek is avoiding him because he KNOWS his sisters will give him shit in front of the cute guy and he’d rather not thanks). Cora invites Stiles to stay for dinner and at first it’s all good but the teasing starts and it’s fine but Stiles notices how Derek sort of shuts down after something Laura says (2/3)

and Stiles mouths off and knocks Laura down a few pegs in Derek’s defense. He is more than willing to use his sarcastic nature in defense of the hot marshmallow sitting across from him. Stiles likes it when Derek’s eyes light up not when they go guarded. And that’s the story of how Derek pretty much falls in love with him on the spot. It’s also the story of how Stiles appoints himself Derek’s emotional protector and you do not want to get on his bad side about that. (3/3)

*wipes tear* stiles being protective of derek is one of my absolute favorite things, bless this entire thing.

i can totally see laura and cora taking it a step or two too far with teasing derek (i’ve got four siblings, it does happen a lot during the sibling bantering and apologies don’t always happen, just more teasing that ends up being unintentionally hurtful) and derek being quiet about it, not fighting it and just waiting for it to stop instead of asking for it to.

and stiles appointing himself derek’s emotional protector, i’m !!!!!! sign me the fuck up, pal. i need stiles ripping people who are mean to derek a new asshole and derek blushing and smiling while it happens cause no one has done that for him before.

just… stiles making derek feel loved is what i’m here for ;;

This is not a prompt and I know you usually don't do asks... but! just in case: the finale is really messing up with my mind. The idea that she talks to him every day and he probably doesn't know she is alive is too much for me. What worries me the most is the idea of Bellamy getting romantic with somebody in the ark, given where the storyline is going do you think it's a possibility? How do you see things panning out?

In general, you’re right, I don’t do much speculation of this type, and I’m afraid I’m not going to start now. But here are some things that I consider to be important and good:

  • That was not a finale you write unless you care very, very deeply, about the relationship between Bellamy and Clarke. 
  • Clarke doesn’t really have a non-Bellamy love interest other than Niylah, and Niylah hasn’t ever really been treated like a love interest so much as a FWB. Obviously it’s possible they could leave her single or give her a new love interest from a number of places, but I think the lack of an extant obvious person is probably a good thing, in terms of Bellarke.
  • I also think their being separated makes it much more likely that the show is, if nothing else, considering making Bellarke canon. If they were together, they’d have to deal with their relationship in the Ark, with the following possible outcomes:
    • They get together during the time jump (unsatisfying)
    • They do not get together during the time jump and their relationship is at its current level for six years, and then they get together once they get back to Earth (bizarre and probably also unsatisfying)
    • They do not get together over the time jump because they are not interested in a romantic relationship and enter S5 as Firmly Just Friends (ugh)
    • They do not get together over the time jump because they have a Huge Falling Out and have to learn to be friends again on Earth (probably the most interesting of these but also like wtf why)
  • So being separated basically allows the writers to delay making a decision about whether or not they will be canon, whereas I think that leaving them together would have necessitated making that choice, and necessitated it in ways that would not be promising for the ship. I like the time jump, and as much as the sadness both of them are doubtless feeling during their separation hurts me, I much prefer it to the alternative, from both a story and shipping perspective.
  • Our cliffhanger was literally Clarke calling Bellamy EVERY DAY because she misses him so much and Bellamy being in actual mourning, so there is every reason to believe we are getting a fucking EPIC reunion.

On a broader note, I come from the old way of fandom, and from the old way of slash fandom, especially, where we never really expected our ships to become canon, and just sort of assumed every important conversation involving our OTP would end with some variation on “no homo,” so I get that my perspective on this is probably different from some people’s. Will I be frustrated if Bellamy and Clarke don’t mash their mouths together at some point? Yes, I totally will. I desperately want them to mash their mouths together, and I do think it’s pretty possible that they will. But my shipping of things has never really taken becoming canon as a very important factor in how much I enjoy them, so I am much more likely to think of all the reasons it might not happen to keep my expectations low than try to reassure myself that canonization is coming. So I’m not a good resource for that kind of reassurance.

But that also means what I mostly think about is all the things that will make me happy aside from actual face-mashing, and that finale was basically non-stop Bellamy and Clarke love each other so much, holy shit, with every indication that S5 will continue with that. And that is 900% what I’m about.

What do you think of the flow chart scene? Many things Jackie says or does in season 7 seems odd and plain wrong to me. I don't like that Hyde was trying to talk about a bad time he was having and she cuts him off for sex. Doesn't sound so much like her to me. What do you think?

You know, this is curious because everyone in the fandom likes this scene. I’m not particullary fond of it, I also don’t hate it. It made me laugh the first time I saw it, but the more I see it, the more I’m with you. It’s weird for her to act like that.

We know, after years and years of characterization, that Jackie is interested in people’s feelings, more like, she’s interested in the people she loves’ feelings. And when it comes to Hyde, she kills and dies for him to open up. 

So for her to shut him up, ignoring him while he’s trying to tell her something that is bothering him, it’s pretty awful and another proof that the writting in season 7 is sloppy, bad and just terrible for the characters. It was like the warning of what was coming with season 8

What do I think? Awful writing, man. That’s not Jackie.

I believe they would so leave any reunion/party to have fun of their own, but man. So, for me it may had gone like this:

She interrumpts him with her flow chart thing, of course she does, and he gets the hint right away as we see. And once he’s more relaxed post-orgasm, she would ask him about it, and he would understand she did that to relax him.

You know how she tells him before that if he’s happy, she is too? My bet is that she would understand why he is so unhappy working at the office, and would try to assure him things will get better, but deep down will also know maybe that’s not for him, maybe she should support him in another way by telling him he should be out of there.

But there’s this– she really wanted him to meet W. B. before knowing he has money. And for me that means she wants this chance for him at having one of his bological parents to actually love him and have a family, and she sees him having this job as a chance to keep/try at a close relationship with his new found family.

Not to mention, an stable job would eventually assure him a better life and chances. He may not be rich, but as long as he can make it in a decent way, in a way he deserves, she’s happy. If she gets to be included in the deal, so be it. But ultimately, she cares first for him, even when she’s trying to hide that in the shallow mask of ‘I want to be your trophy wife’ Hyde knows it’s false.

Of course, eventually, he gets the store and is so much better.

Sasuke and Naruto having feelings for each other is BS! I don't agree with you fangirls making these straight characters gays, wtf you're trying to insert your own agenda and hating the female characters just to make your gay couple canon. I'm gay and love MadaHashirama that's my otp they both understand each other, Naruto doesn't get Sasuke he doesn't care not even for his revenge or tried to compromise he used violence! Hashimada is superior than SNS is not gay anyways.

It’s funny. When one ignores the unnecessary and hypocritical HashiMada part, you just sound like a typical pro-ender. I bet you are and made said part up, so I won’t call you out on your homophobic crusade. Anyway, let me dismiss all of your baseless claims.

“Sasuke and Naruto having feelings for each other is bullshit!”

Why? Because you say so? Calm down there, Trump.

“I don’t agree with you fangirls making these straight characters gay.”

i) Not everyone who ships or supports SNS is female and a fangirl. This is, in fact, the logical fallacy of hasty generalisations. What you say is flawed because there is a 100% probability of one of us not being female and a fangirl.

ii) By assuming Naruto and Sasuke are heterosexual, you imply homo-, bi-, poly- and pansexual people follow a certain behavioural pattern. According to you, unconventional characteristics belong per se to other sexualities. That is wrong since there aren’t any guidelines to determine one’s sexuality. Further, their sexuality is unknown. No one ever confirmed if they are heterosexual.

iii) Your thought process is quite narrow. You’re using the logical fallacy of a false dichotomy by presenting a situation where exclusively limited options are presented. In this case, it’s the idea that Naruto and Sasuke could be either straight or gay, completely disregarding the possibility of them being bi-, poly-, or pansexual. A false dichotomy can actually arise intentionally to force a certain outcome… in dubio pro reo, Anon.

iv) I don’t agree with you making potential LGBT+ characters straight.

“What the fuck, you’re trying to insert your own gay agenda into the characters.”

Hm, see, this rubs me the wrong way. Some of you tend to use political terms of which you do not know the origin of in non-political contexts, unaware what it possibly could imply.

The so-called “homosexual agenda” is a term introduced by the Christian right, primarily in the United States. It’s a political phrase mainly used by Christian conservatives and evangelical fundamentalists who oppose LGBT+ rights.

This is their way of devaluing the LGBT+ movement. They hold the belief that the LGBT+ movement tries to convert people into becoming gay and thusly destroy traditional family values and end marriages. According to them, the LGBT+ movement has a “master plan” to completely shatter family’s, make churches powerless, and give LGBT+ folks more rights (oh, what kind of monster would want to be treated like a fucking human being, amiright?).

“You hate the female characters to make SNS canon.”

You’re confusing cause and effect. X doesn’t necessarily cause Y. There is not a common cause that actually causes both X and Y. More importantly, you are once again hastily generalising people. 

I’ve seen the SNS fandom rarely hating on female characters, but rather criticising their poorly written development. Also, your canon means nothing to me. I ship SNS because they have development; a canon label won’t add anything to their relationship, nor does the absence of the canon label take away from their bond.

“I’m gay.”

No, you’re not.

“I love HashiMada.”

No, you don’t.

“That’s my OTP.”

I don’t care, lol. Why are you telling me this?

“They both understand each other. Naruto doesn’t get Sasuke; he doesn’t care, not even for his revenge.”

Yeah, I fondly remember when Hashirama had no problem giving up Madara because their ideologies clashed. 

Now, one of the most important motifs of the series are bonds, and SNS’ bond is undoubtedly one of the strongest bonds in the entire series. It was established that they don’t only connect on an emotional level through their shared trauma of loneliness, but also form two necessary ideological and philosophical halves of a system of peace.

As Sasuke acknowledges, Naruto does care.

Naruto indeed understands and cares for Sasuke’s revenge, though he chooses to disagree with his ways.

It hurts him seeing Sasuke hurt. 


“Naruto didn’t even try to compromise; he used violence!”

I know, right? I wish he would’ve tried to compromise with Sasuke! As for the use of violence, it’s a battle manga. Fights are one of the main themes if you weren’t aware. Naruto and Sasuke fighting against each other on equal ground shouldn’t surprise you all too much.

“HashiMada is superior, SNS is not gay anyway.”

The sky is blue, I like strawberry ice cream. Using the reason from one argument to support the conclusion of another is the logical fallacy of the non sequitur. It basically creates an inherent weakness and is more used as a form of comedy because of its lack of meaning relative to what preceded it, seeming absurd to the point of being funny.

Get lost. Seriously. 

  • Book 1:
  • Tamlin- is a bit of a jerk but you get the reasoning behind it later and awwww cute couple so you let it slide. Doesn't act so Amarantha doesn't know what affects him most and torture people that way. Loves Feyre and doesn't want to endanger her so he sacrifices his people's freedom for her.
  • Rhysand- is a horrible person, shatters people's minds, and willingly does Amarantha's bidding but does so in an attempt to break her rule and is sexy af and mysterious so you don't hate him as much as you might. Plus: why so startled by Feyre after revealing your heart to her?(be real here, I loved him when I first saw him. Gimme)
  • Book 2:
  • Tamlin- is protective of Feyre to the point of ignoring that she is suffering because of it. You want to give him slack b/c of Under the Mountain but he just acts more and more in his own best interest and not Feyre's and you get more and more angry and uncomfortable. Then you realize holy crap this is a toxic relationship and I've been trying to defend him just like Feyre and nope I'm protecting myself and her. Loves Feyre, but can't see that she's not willing to simply sit and be pretty and protected.(And I never really liked him anyway so I'm not too sad about cutting him out)bonus: there's no such thing as a High Lady
  • Rhys- my precious narcissistic prick I love you. He rescues Feyre from marrying Tamlin, because she is begging anyone to save her. He sees she's literally wasting away in the Spring Court and helps her. And saves her when TAMLIN locks her up and causes her to have a panic attack. Teaches her to read(Rhys is the most handsome High Lord)and fight and use her abilities. Treats her as his equal. Destroyed and debased himself to protect the Court of Dreams and its people and knows what he did is inexcusable but he did it for his people. Loves Feyre and wants her to make her own choices and respects every single one she makes, even if it scares the crap out of him and it means he isn't with her. Is really a wonderful and good person under the Night Lord mask.(plus they're mates so my OTP won)bonus: makes Feyre his High Lady

Hi, I'm new to Arrow and I have become a major fan, I'm leaning on shipping Oliver and the cute\bubbily IT girl he showed the bullet ridden laptop to lol. But I've heard that Olicity shippers are very discriminating and don't acknowledge anyone who doesn't automatically ship Olicity or doesn't ship Olicity. Idk if that's true or not because I've met some nice Olicity shippers but I just wanted to make sure before I join the fandom officially.

Hello! First of all, welcome. Glad you’re enjoying the show and leaning (only leaning? :-P) towards shipping Olicity. How far along in the show are you?

I don’t know where you heard that about Olicity shippers but let me reassure you. This fandom is by far the funniest, wittiest, most welcoming fandom I have ever had the pleasure of being a part of. Of course, that sounds like I’m biased, and I probably am, but it’s also true. 

Look. There are always going to be people who rub you up the wrong way. There are, of course, people who can be rude or dismissive of your opinions or can be discriminating or otherwise. Of course there are “fandom wars”. That’s life, and that is not restricted to the Olicity fandom. I’ve heard that there have been people who feel they’ve been burned by certain sections of the fandom. Personally, I haven’t experienced it. I think the trick is to “find your people”. We’re not cliquey or a cult but, of course, you will connect with some people more than with others. Similar experiences, similar tastes, similar humours etc.  That’s also life. Once you find your people, you stick with them, and you protect your bubble. 

The beautiful thing about this fandom, for me personally, is not that we all love Olicity. It’s that we all love each other. Really. We support our fic writers, we big up our gif makers, and everyone bands together to accomplish goals; we joke, we tease, we laugh until we cry. We also analyse this show until our eyes turn red. We discuss our differing viewpoints, we debate back and forth, we accept each other’s opinions even if they are different from our own. This isn’t unique to the Olicity fandom, of course. But it is special. 

You don’t have to ship Olicity. You can ship whatever you like, as long as you are respectful of others, they will be respectful of you. That has been my experience, at least. If you do ship Olicity, all that means is that you get to squee with the rest of us as to how stupidly adorable our OTP is. We like squeeing. We do it a lot. 

I hope you do join the fandom “officially”. We don’t hand out membership cards or anything, but we will welcome you with open arms.
