otp: you and me and love and happiness and life and fate

country singer bitty accidentally writes a hit about nhl player jack

Based on this post about the inspiration for Dolly Parton’s Jolene, which is somehow even gayer than the song itself. Bless you, Dolly.


It had started out so innocently.

Bitty had been tired after hours of this meet n’ greet, and when that tall drink of water walked up to get his autograph, Bitty couldn’t help the words that tumbled out of his mouth.

“Gosh, well aren’t you the most handsome fella I’ve ever seen,” he said, reached for the outstretched CD–CD! Who even bought CDs anymore?–and readied his Sharpie. “What’s your name, hun?”

“Uh, Jack,” the man said, pretty eyes going wide. If he’d been more awake, Bitty might’ve felt bad for making a fan uncomfortable. But if this Jack really were a fan, then he certainly wouldn’t have a problem with another man complimenting him. And besides, he was handsome, with his wide shoulders and high cheekbones and eyes as blue as the summer sky.

ABO Fic Rec List

In honor of ABO Appreciation day I am doing a NEW ABO Fic Rec List! You can check out the Original ABO Fic Rec List here. So if it was included in that one, it won’t be on this one.

Just a disclaimer for all my reader insert buddies: I have been having some “issues” with reader inserts as of late so this list will be ships only. (Again, Destiel is my OTP so the list is 100% that this time) Sometimes I like some pretty ‘weird’ shit and YMMV, so always heed the tags on these. But they all have happy endings as that’s what I like in a fic! (The show gives us enough unhappy endings and cliffhangers, I just want my boys to be happy! Is that too much to ask?)

It’s my list so I can start with me! Check out my new fic Bringing Home the Bacon with art by @vinnie-cha for @deancastielbigbang

Omega Dean was doing just fine. He had an apartment, a good job, and a great family. But he didn’t have an alpha. When Castiel starts as his company’s new CEO everything changes. Alpha Cas becomes family, and Dean takes care of his family.

ABO office AU with Fluff, Smut and a happy ending

Also check out my short fic The Billionaire’s Pregnant Mistress for @destielharlequinchallenge

Lingerie Model Dean is pregnant with his Billionaire’s Alpha’s pup and he doesn’t know what to do. They just broke up and he doesn’t want to be where he’s not wanted.

Spoiler Alert: Happy Ending and minimal angst.

Gravity vs Velocity by PaperAnn @paperannxo

Newton’s law of universal gravitation states that any two bodies in the universe attract each other with a force that is directly proportional to the product of their masses and inversely proportional to the square of the distance between the two bodies.

Dean swears he feels an honest-to-goodness gravity (not any scent-true-mates-bullshit) pulling him to a mysterious omega and makes the worst mistake of his career… he only has one thing to say…

Fuck science.

Dean is a detective and Cas is part of a mob family. They get in and out of a lot of trouble together. A must read!

A Story for Every Corner by thepinupchemist  @scarlettshazam

Dean’s a late bloomer. When he presents as an omega, everyone is surprised, and everything changes. Only a few months into omegahood, Dean decides to book it. A couple of truck rides and a state later, Dean’s in Apple Springs, Colorado at a bed & breakfast called The Snoozing Squirrel. The off-beat omega owner is just the beginning.

The hard part is the offbeat brother of the offbeat omega, an alpha named Castiel.

Gabe is the best, and I really love him in this fic.

For Science! by pm_lo

Selected transcripts and supporting materials from Dr. Castiel Williams and Dean Winchester’s seminal study on physiological and psychological sexual response by gender designation.

This is a crossover of Supernatural and Masters of Sex, it doesn’t use any characters from Masters of Sex, just the plot and the whole set up so you don’t need to know anything about Masters of Sex to enjoy it. It is written very differently than most fanfic (it’s not lying when it says “transcripts”) but it’s totally worth a read! (And go watch Masters of Sex! It’s important sexual history!)

Arranged by Miss_Lv @the-miss-lv

Dean Winchester is the omega chosen to marry Castiel’s son. The arranged marriage is as awkward and lackluster has Castiel expected it would be.

What he didn’t expect was what would develop between himself and his new son-in-law.

So I think this one qualifies as ‘weird’ but I’ve read it at least 4 times and love it. Don’t let the infidelity bother you as (*SPOILER*) Dean never has a relationship with Castiel’s son and only has a sexual relationship with Cas.

Obsession by Miss_Lv

SPN kink meme: Castiel is John’s friend and becomes fixated with his son Dean. The main thing is that as Castiel spirals into obsession Dean isn’t scared but rather likes it and encourages it.

Big age difference, but Dean knows what he wants and that is Cas. Very different way of mating.

A Hole in the World by AnnelieseMichel

Dean Winchester never wanted to go home again. Going back to Lawrence meant people who knew what he was, who didn’t buy into the lie. But with a tragic accident, he’s back and dealing with the death of his father, the social stigma and objectification of being an out Omega, and the lingering aftermath of a long-ago crime.

This is a super long fic with lots of sexual violence against omegas. About halfway through the tone really changes and it gets super political. So if you like you ABO with a good helping of civil rights, this is the fic for you!

Take On Me by Powerfulweak

Alpha Dean Winchester figured the closest he’d get to the apple pie life and fatherhood was a one-shot, “wham-bam-thank-you-mam” trip to a sperm bank. That is, until he comes face-to-face with the omega carrying his pup on a fateful trip to the grocery store. When the the omega runs off without a word, though, Dean learns the situation is far more complicated than he expected. Can an anonymous sperm donation and the favor of a lifetime help two complete strangers find everything their life was missing?

Super cute hijinks and happy ending. What more can you want?

Violator by MooseFeels

Dean’s fifteen, and his knot doesn’t pop. Part 1 of Revelation

You need to read the entire series, not just the first one. It starts out dark (and Dean has a lot of issues to work through) but it has a happy ending.

No Righteous Path by jupiter_james @jupiterjames

On his 40th birthday, Dean Winchester suddenly begins to worry that he may have lost his chance for a real mate. He’s been so focused on his business as a 24-hour roofing and repairman, that he’s never taken the time to date properly, or even make any lasting friendships outside of his family. Beginning in their late 30’s, alphas and omegas start to lose their mating and bonding hormones, making it more difficult - and often impossible - to mate or bond with anyone past a certain age. But as a modern Alpha, Dean would be content with a companion, at least. Blood bonds aren’t the be-all, end-all. However, after a late night emergency roofing repair call from Castiel Novak, Omega, Dean starts to hope. Yearn. The only hangup is that Castiel admits to being as old-fashioned as the books he teaches. Nervous to go against his religious upbringing by being with someone who he can’t bond properly, as alphas and omegas are intended to do. But he can’t deny his attraction to Dean, and despite his sensibilities, he thinks that, just maybe, he can change for the man he’s falling in love with.

Totally LOVE this fic! Super fluffy and has a happy ending!! All the (totally necessary for plot) angst gets resolved. Its everything you (ok fine, *I*) could want in a fic. (GIVE ME ALL THE FLUFFY ABO SMUT LONG FICS!!!)

Mulder and Scully by teller_of_tales_and_hero_of_songs

Castiel Novak is an undercover FBI agent working to take down a white collar criminal named Azazel, but Castiel finds himself way out of his depths when the case takes a dangerous turn and Azazel gets involved in an omega trafficking deal. With the help of an OPA agent named Dean, the Bureau and the Omega Protection Agency take down Azazel and his seller, Dick Roman.

As it turns out, that case wasn’t the last Castiel would see of Dean Winchester, and it isn’t long at all before Castiel finds himself falling in love with the fiery, strong-willed omega.

Dean is quite the kickass Omega. This story is really good, and it has THE BEST first “I love you”s that I have ever read in any fic. I still laugh thinking about it!

Best Laid Plans by Persephoneshadow @ibelieveinthelittletreetopper

Things are going well for Dean: he’s landed the biggest design job of his architectural career and is about to get final approval on the project despite how difficult the development company, personified by Castiel Novak, has made it. It’s not bad for a moody omega…except things are also going terribly for Dean because he has to get in a plane and fly to a meeting, and course ends up in heat a few hours before. Luckily, Castiel is there to help and both men discover the good that can come when nothing goes quite as intended.

This fic is great! Dean and Cas work together but don’t meet in person until Dean has to travel for a meeting.

Get Knocked Down, Get Back Up by Unforth @unforth-ninawaters

With an over-sensitive sense of smell, omega Dean Winchester finds the scent of most potential mates to be, frankly, nauseating. Enter alpha Castiel, who smells fracken *perfect* but has problems of his own.

As someone who in general finds most fake scents awful instead of pleasing I kinda relate to this. If my sense of smell was as good as most ABO fics I could totally see Dean being me. I love how unforth plays with sexuality and gender expectations in her fics.

Like Cats and Dogs by sweetdean

Dean Winchester, Alpha, lead Hunter for the Pack, is in need of a mate. His wolf is out of control, he’s on edge, and nothing seems to be doing the trick. Dean is convinced that he’ll never find a mate, but when the Pack’s Council forces him to figure it out before he ends up going rogue, Dean doesn’t have much of a choice. Problem is, Dean isn’t interested in what the members of his pack have to offer; and that means looking elsewhere.

Dean knew his mate would have to be different. He just didn’t know what “different” would really mean, and how “different” would bring his whole world crashing down on top of him.

I love werewolves! And this has a lot of weres in it!

Caribbean Wonderland by LittleAngelCassie

Dean Winchester has spent his life working towards his dream: to teach and care for omega students. But a genetic mutation from birth has kept him from his field of choice. After years of hiding under the protection of his Uncle Bobby and his younger brother Sam, Dean has finally been given a chance.

He accepts the position to care for a young orphan who needs more than just a teacher but also a fellow omega to help her traverse the changes ahead. There is always a hitch, however, and in Dean’s case it’s a hot billionaire alpha with piercing blue eyes. This remote island paradise has the opportunity to give Dean everything he’s wanted, but will he be able to rise above his own fears and the stigmas associated with his unique biological designation?

Throw away what you know about alpha/ beta/ omega dynamics because this is a brand new adventure in wonderland.

So this one is really great and it has a “new” gender designation within ABO. Super original and I totally love it.

Gray Matter by PaperAnn

It should have been a night like any other night, but for Dean Winchester this evening was different.

Tonight was his last on Earth.

The omega finally snapped; the weight of his kills moonlighting as an assassin were too heavy to carry. So he decided to set out to numb the pain with whiskey and the white noise of whatever seedy bar he randomly ambled into. Although he’d intended to drown his sorrows alone, a bold alpha (who introduced himself as Castiel) wormed his way into his party-for-one, but more importantly: his story.

After brazenly announcing that Dean’s plan to shoot himself in the head was “unoriginal,” the alpha lured him out into the bar to prove there are much more interesting and creative ways to go.

A bizarre, deranged game turns into a night of passion, and leads Dean into introspective questions he never would’ve asked before. Maybe everything wasn’t as black and white as he thought, maybe there’s more to his own story that he, himself, didn’t even know. The stupid fucking alpha had transformed his world into shades of gray and made him doubt everything.

You need a dark sense of humor for this one, but if you have that, this is fantastic!

Let’s analyze the Sterek shit in 6b trailer

Right after I watched the trailer, I immediately started analyzing and searching elements about Derek and Stiles. First thing, obviously, Derek is BACK YES and Stiles appears in the season. 

But now here are things I noticed, and I’m pretty sure it’s just my hardcore shipper side taking control of my mind so please don’t take it seriously ok ?  It’s really far fetched and I don’t want to start a fight with anyone. If you’re not agreeing with me just keep scrolling :) (and if you keep reading excuse my not so perfect english, there may be a lot of mistakes !)

1. They’re back together 

As you probably noticed, Stiles and Derek came back to Beacon Hills and met Scott at the same time and together, right ? And it can’t be a coincidence because neither of them looks surprised to see the other and the “without us ?” looks way too prepared for them to meet at this moment. Except if Stiles’ eyes rolling back in his head is him about to faint from surprise. Guess it’s not.

So I can surely assume that they met before, and came back together.How did they meet, I have no idea : maybe one was looking for the other (and it makes my heart swell to think about it), or maybe they ran into each other, like drawn by fate. Hem. They probably both drove together in the jeep too. Knowing them and their friendly relation, I can guess they talked and bantered with one another during the trip. So they obviously spent time together and that makes my heart happy.

2. Stiles helps Derek

Again, that’s obvious if you watched the trailer, but Stiles helps carrying an injured Derek out of a fight (we’ll also notice that Stiles is wearing a FBI shirt and I  wonder how that happened since you can’t become a FBI agent in so little time but that’s not the point).This short scene immediately reminded me of season 2 in the pool before they went in the water and Stiles had to carry Derek in the exact same position and they had this nice little talk about how they don’t really trust each other and that Stiles is helping Derek just because he needs him to survive. Well, that obviously changed, and we’ve known that for a while now, but I like the maybe involuntary parallel between the season 2 scene and this one where Stiles saves Derek without hesitation. Awesome relationship and characters evolution !

3. No Stydia ?

I’m not trying to throw shade on Stydia, I totally respect this ship, but I couldn’t keep myself from noticing that Lydia doesn’t have a scene with Stiles alone, when Scalia (yay !) has this shower scene and a lot of other one-to-one moments, as Melissa and Chris do. Lydia is mostly alone. Like really alone. She discovers this weird spiderweb thing alone, is in a bed alone, is in the school alone, screams alone (and right after a sterek scene !), is alone. The only moment Stiles and Lydia have together is in the last scene, where everyone is in or around the jeep, listening to the radio. They’re sitting side by side, I can give you that. But we’ll talk again about this scene later. This is surprising, absolutely no Stydia in the trailer, when 6a was all about this ship.

4. Stiles and Derek are a real duo

I’m not talking about romantic (or sexual if you want to see it that way) couple, but these two dorks are a recurrent and good working duo since season 1. It was mostly comic at the beginning, but they learned to trust and appreciate each other. I’m talking about Derek shoving Stiles in walls, banging his neck in a steering wheel and dying on him in season 1. I’m talking about the pool scene and breaking in the police station, Alpha Derek saving Stiles from Isaac, both being paralyzed in the police station (and Matt shipping it) in season 2. I’m talking about them being friendly when Scott gets his tattoo, eye contact, Derek punching Stiles hand, Derek trusting Stiles over his girlfriend, Stiles putting is hand on Derek’s shoulder at Boyd’s death, Stiles hitting him when he’s unconscious, Derek helping to save Stiles when he’s possessed, Derek trying to protect him when Chris points a gun at the Nogitsune, Derek dreaming about Stiles, in season 3. I’m talking about Stiles helping and taking care of teenager Derek, Stiles and Derek together helping Liam, Derek almost dying and Stiles hesitating to leave, fearing he won’t see him again, in season 4. I’m talking about Stiles noticing his initials on the bookshelf at school, Scott and Stiles mentioning Derek in season 5, when nobody else talked about him. 

Even if you don’t ship Sterek you have to see their relation. Trust, care, attachment. If I put to the side the romantic aspect of Sterek and only focus on what is canon, I’d say they are more than friends. Friends for Stiles is Scott. Derek is more, and it frustrates me that I can’t find the right word. They are like supernatural adventures partners. They’d do anything to help the other and trust them without questioning it. They earned that trust, and once obtained it’s even more solid than the one between Scott and Stiles (season 5 shows it). Derek would have believed Stiles in season 5 and supported him against Theo without a second thought. And they sometimes joke and banter together, so it works even more. The trailer shows that they’re not Derek and Stiles anymore. They’re Derek&Stiles, partners in crime. It’s even more emphasized by the “us” that Derek corrects. 

Despite my love for this otp, I see the canon Derek&Stiles more like a platonic relationship. Platonic soulmates. After the end of that war, I just imagine them going back to Washington or New York or wherever and move in together. Hell, they’ll even get platonically married and platonically raise children together, because they can’t imagine someone else to spend their life with. But if romantic Sterek goes canon I’ll be even more happy :D

5. Eye contact in the jeep

This one is the most far fetched and I totally over analyzed it.

In the last scene of the trailer, where Scott, Stiles and Lydia are in the jeep with Peter, Malia and Derek at the windows, I noticed a few things.

First, the Hales are all outside the car, which doesn’t mean anything but maybe it’s important to say it.

And, after a few observations, we can know that this is how they’re placed

(This picture is really awful but anyway)

And now is the interesting stuff.

I can’t really be sure what he is looking at, could be the radio, but I want to believe this very intense look is directed at Stiles. And while we’re talking about him…

Is this Stiles looking back at Derek ? Seems like it. It wouldn’t be the first time these two exchange glances and eye contact when nobody else is looking.

 (You can read this amazing meta theory where the author talks about Stiles and Derek relation and the importance of eye contact among other things : https://cupidsbower.tumblr.com/post/86202796600/dereks-anchor)

Peter and Lydia seem rather focused on the radio Scott is holding, we can’t see Malia, and Scott is looking through the window, but then he looks up, maybe at Derek, maybe just for the emphasis of his concentration and questions. No idea.

Also, if you squint really really hard during this scene, you may notice that Peter seems to be looking at Lydia, while she’s turning her eyes towards Stiles who’s looking at Derek. Derek stares back, Scott glances at Malia and we can’t see her face again so she could be looking anywhere. But it’s like everyone is staring at the person they have a connection with. Peter because he played with Lydia’s mind, Scott because he’s dating Malia. Lydia because she’s dating Stiles. And Stiles and Derek ? Because they have this incredible chemistry. Maybe we’re even talking about romantic connections and the show will end with canon Pydia, Scalia and Sterek, who knows ? But after a few slow-mo rewatchs I realized that except Derek and Stiles, they’re more likely to be watching the radio. So take this as you want it, nobody’s holding you back of believing it. 

The dorks look at each other exactly when Gerard (wasn’t he dead by the way ??) says “Welcome back. You must all be feeling rather nostalgic.”

The “welcome back” must be directed at Derek and Stiles, since they were the only ones among the people in the car who left Beacon Hills. So again, they’re addressed as a whole. (Or it’s a general “welcome back”, like “welcome back together, all gathered in the jeep like the good ol’time !”, or a “welcome back in a new nightmare where I’m magically alive !”. )

The “you must all be feeling rather nostalgic” is directed at everyone, and I guess the old man says that because a lot of people are back (Jackson ! The twin ! Kate ????), so I don’t give it much attention, but what I do give attention to is how a shot of Derek and his intense look is followed by a fade to black and then the shot of Stiles looking back at him. That must be the cinematographer inside me talking, but this kind of editing doesn’t come from nowhere. I see this sequence as a special importance giving deeper meaning to Gerard’s words. I see it as Derek and Stiles having felt nostalgic far away from the town and its inhabitants (pack and family included), but also far away from each other when Derek left. In other words, they missed each other. We’ve only seen Stiles’ point of view, when he signed the bookshelf or when Scott mentioned his name and he obviously had feelings (as friend or not) towards the werewolf. I can assume Derek felt the same way, especially after Braeden left him and came back to Beacon Hills without him.

Some people say that Stiles is Derek’s anchor, and I’m pretty convinced of that too. It makes even more sense that they found each other again when they’d lost contact for months, even maybe years. It’s like they gravitate toward each other. Platonic soulmates as I said before. And I can totally see them evolve in this platonic way. Stydia could keep happening, Derek could find a partner (Braeden ?), and they’ll still stay around each other no matter what.

I can totally see them evolve in a romantic relation too, but oh so different than what they both had had before. More serious than any of their previous relations, but they’ll still stay these two adorable dorks who can’t keep themselves from teasing the other and pretending they’re not funny, and always keeping this unbreakable trust and fidelity they already have. I’m totally on board with this. Yup. 

… And this post is way much longer than it was supposed to be so I’m gonna stop ! Don’t hesitate to give me your opinion and thoughts as long as you don’t insult me or anything, be kind please ! :) Have an awesome day !!


Bonus : 6. Something for the viewers

I just realized I forgot to mention something :

 “You didn’t think you were doing this without me, did you ?”

“Without us ?”

This, except being the cause of my cardiac arrest, can also be interpreted. Stiles and Derek obviously said these lines to Scott, but what if the production of Teen Wolf was saying this to us at the same time? A lot of people believed that Derek and Stiles wouldn’t appear in the last part of the show, but here they are ! And that’s a nice message, if it was voluntary :D 

I can still hope that, as a lot of people believe that romantic sterek won’t become canon, boom they’ll throw the love at us with a “You didn’t think this would happen, did you ?” and I can totally see something like this happen. In my head. But who knows ?

Now I’m really finished ! Thanks for reading :)

Pillow Talk #6: Magic ~

PS: This PT inspired a whole fanfic that will try and fix season 7′s mess. Soon to be published in about a week.

His chick had worked magic on him tonight. 

Just half an hour ago, he had been the most tired he has ever felt, but the second her lips moved in that slow and soft way of hers to tell him she wanted him, all of it was gone and his desire for her had worked them out nicely to the point he couldn’t stop smiling.

Jackie was panting beside him, sweating even if she would never admit it, and Hyde looked at her. Her perfect hair was also a mess, but the wide of her smile took his attention immediately and he had to roll over, kiss her and breathe her in again.

“You know, people it’s going to notice we aren’t up there…” He said, carefully lying over her without letting his whole weight crush her. “Not that I care, but… I thought you liked that stuff.”

“Oh, I do!” Her hands went to his cheeks, and she caressed his face softly. Hyde closed his eyes, knowing he was smiling as she kept loving him tender. “But I like it more here. Don’t you?”

“Way better than anywhere else.”

Soooo..... SQ remained subtext

Oh well. Such wasted potential cuz SwanQueen could’ve been an epic fairytale… I’m disappointed I guess? But here’s a bit of silver line for you my dear Swen. Did we really want SQ to be canon considering how A&E wrote canon ships like CaptainSw@n, 0utlwQueen, Sw@nfire, Rumbelle, etc? I’d much rather have SQ as platonic co-parents than the soap opera cliche that CS is anyway.

In some ways, I’m glad SQ is left non-canon and therefore untainted cuz I couldn’t bear my OTP turning into anything resembling CS. Seriously, all Hook ever did was lie and lie and lie and all Emma ever did was play “doormat girlfriend” and make excuses for him. Fight, separate, make up, fight, separate, make up - that was their story. Season 5 onwards, their relationship turned abusive and had a very disturbing pattern of kissing to cover up the betrayal and deception. Hook called Emma an “orphan" and made her cry, invited all the Dark Ones to terrorize her family and allowed one of them to choke her. No matter how pissed you are, YOU DO NOT DO THAT to the people you love! No exaggeration but CS is least epic lovestory that I’ve EVER seen in my entire life! So lucky is my OTP to escape that terrible fate lol. A&E certainly know how to write epic friendships like SwanQueen and SnowQueen but they fail at romances (except with Snowing I guess). Anyway, for me personally, my expectations for romantic SQ were so high that the reality would have never lived upto the fantasy anyway. So, things are better this way. :D

It’s ok Swen we’ll get through this! Thanks to our super talented fandom, we have fanfiction, fanart and manips to mend our bleeding hearts. :) The ending may not have been what we had hoped for but still I’m quite pleased that SQ are a family with Henry forever.

As for Regina not ending up with a romantic partner (yet) I’m cool with that cuz Regina once said: “My happy ending is finally feeling at peace in the world.” Acceptance and self-love without some dude kissing your feet is a powerful message to send out.

Was SwanQueen ever in the cards? Maybe if we had 10 seasons and had Jen stuck on, who knows. Were we ship-baited? Yes. Why? Cuz the writers wanted to entice us and perhaps they thought adding lesbian subtext created depth to the show a la Xena/Gabrielle. Ship-baiting is an unfortunate thing that happens even for straight couples. I mean, have you seen Bamon on TVD? They were a hetero ship that had 8 seasons of development, looks, blatant jealousy moments, parallels, etc but Delena were the golden couple so the show went with that in the end. Do you know about Ichiruki from the manga Bleach? They too had 10+ years of development, looks, symbolism, colorspreads, poems and even a freakin MOVIE… but in the very last chapter, the author chose to pair up Ichigo with the girl who had a crush on him. So, I’ve learned the hard way that in fiction, 9 out of 10 times canon prevails over subtext. Knowing that all SQ subtext we saw didn’t amount to anything is a hard pill to swallow but oh well life goes on.

Why I am not more furious? I was but I’m over it now. A&E still created SQ (“unintentionally” of course) and Regina Mills, queen of our hearts. They brought me to you awesome Swen so I can’t bring myself to be completely mad at them.

Also, the truth is that we DON’T NEED some fictional ship to validate our existence. The antis/trolls turned our fandom experience into a nightmare but to me this was NEVER a competition or about “winning” some stupid shipping war. The antis had canon all along but it STILL wasn’t enough cuz they would constantly invade our tags and fanworks out of insecurity. It means their canon doesn’t satisfy them and I pity them lol.

All things considered, the show still ended (even though technically it still isn’t the end) the way it started -> Henry and his two moms. Ever since Emma saved Regina from the fire in season 1, I always knew SwanQueen were meant to have a “unique and special” bond… and now 6 seasons later, they do. 

In conclusion, Swan Queen dropping off their son to school is the most beautiful and purest endgame that I could ask for!

anonymous asked:

Hi!! Just wanted to say your blog always gives me positive Jonsa vibes!! I know it's probably something you've already answered but I'd really like to know how you came to ship Jon and Sansa in the show??

Hi Anonny!!

Oh my god. I’m probably going to ramble a lot so please bear with me. Lemme start at the beginning. This is the order in which I liked the Starks in season one.

1. Ned
2. Robb
3. Arya and Jon
4. Bran Stark
5. Catelyn Stark
6. Sansa and Rickon

Yes, Sansa was the least favourite of the Starks for me but of course I never did really hate her. After Ned’s death (which was my first WTF?? moment on GOT) I thought she was not going to survive for too long. Robb stark was then my most favourite stark. (I still love him). I felt hope for Sansa, I started to like her more when she stood up to Joffrey knowing very well what it would earn her. Her dreams were shattered and she truly became GRRM’s variety of course but nevertheless a princess trapped in a golden cage/castle with the man of her dreams turning into her worst nightmare. I felt for her and sincerely hoped her brother would soon rescue her.

Jon on the other hand went through a similar though less drastic phase of disillusionment. When Ned Stark died I really wanted Jon to join Robb and the Starks to take over but of course that was never meant to happen because the focus was kept on Robb for a reason. The Red wedding. My second WTF my life is over moment on GOT!!

D. Targ remained the only hope for westeros and I really thought at that point that she and Jon should collaborate at some point and rid westeros of all its evil. I liked ygritte but somehow I never thought that her’s and Jon was a romance that was going to last. I knew she was going to die even before she was going to die and I was saved from my third WTF moment on game of thrones.

When Sansa got married to Tyrion, I heaved a huge sigh of relief. Here was a man who was clever and kind and would treat her with respect and even remain loyal to her. Finally Sansa Stark’s future was beginning to look not so bleak and I thought even though physically Tyrion was the exact opposite of what Sansa wanted, he might be her happy ending. But that didn’t materialise in the end.

When I was disappointed in Sansa’s character about her trusting LF, the worst thing ever happens to her - Ramsay Bolton. And suddenly I’m awed by Sansa Stark. Inspite of the torture she’s being put through she remains strong. Broken but strong. She’s the one who brings Theon out of Reek. She’s constantly trying to escape her fate and I began to love her. I can’t tell you the amount of disappointment I felt when Brienne fails to see her lit candle. That was my first “I’m going to kill you D&D” on GOT!!

The amount of tension that I felt in the time between Sansa and Theon’s escape from winterfell and her reaching the wall is the most amount of tension that I’ve ever felt in GOT. I was screaming “Please Sansa… just reach Jon. And don’t you dare die before you reach!!!!”

When the gates of castle black opened and I saw Sansa come in and that reunion happened I was like. FINALLY SOMETHING GOOD HAS HAPPENED ON THRONES!! I was confident that Jon is going to do everything to protect his sister and then the reunion scene happened. And it was just WOW!!

It was during the “where will we go?” Scene that the first thought crept into my head ..

Me: “God.. Kit Harrington is made for romance… the way Jon’s looking at Sansa…”

Also me: Idiot!! They’re brother and sister.

In the scene with Ramsay’s letter… when Sansa held Jon’s hand ..For a second I was like.. oooooook. But the next second I told myself “She said ‘our brother’ and “our home.. Jeez get your mind out of the gutter!!”

In Sansa’s scene with Little finger when she says “My brother and I will take back the north.” I told myself ‘See, there’s nothing there. You’ve been reading too many romance novels.“ And then LF stresses on “Half - brother”
And I went “Oh no.. here I go again.”

Then in the scene where they are all planning how to rally the north against Ramsay I was like “Er… Isn’t Jon staring a little too much at Sansa??”
But then I was caught off guard by Sansa lying to Jon about where she got information about the blackfish. And then Sansa says “Jon is Jon. I trust him. He’s my brother.” Again I was like “She’s making it pretty clear that he’s her brother…”

Then Sansa gives him a cloak and Jon fumbles and Sansa is looking so pretty and Jon blushes when Edd sees him wearing the cloak and Jon leaves castle black looking like a king and Sansa follows right behind him looking like his queen and I was like “Which is this show that I’m watching, again? Game of thrones??? Sorry!! I forgot that for a minute.”

I didn’t catch any such vibes in their scene with Lyanna Mormont. My whole focus was on an exceptionally talented little girl who literally ate up the screen.

The scene with Lord Glover was the beginning of the huffs and the disagreements which went on to heavy breathing and small pauses in the scene before Sansa sends LF the raven which grew to laboured breathing and pregnant pauses in the scene before the BOB which is the scene in which I finally said to myself “There’s something more than a sibling relationship happening here!!”

Then the forehead kiss happened which I tried my level best to not read into (Jon did not look at her lips… he was just… I don’t know maybe pink is a better colour than white… of course snowflakes falling does not make the whole scene look romantic… it just means winter is here..)

Then the cousin reveal happened. My fourth WTF?? Moment on GOT, in an I’m so excited way

Then the King in the north scene happened. My fifth WTF?? Moment on GOT, In an I’m screaming with joy way

I must say that until this point I dint know anything about the books, I didn’t know a ship called Jonsa even existed, I had not read a single meta and I didn’t know about the existence of Ao3 and jonsa fanfiction. And ironically not a thing about tumblr. I just called my brother who doesn’t have a single romantic bone in his body and asked him, “I got a weird feeling that this show wants us to see Jon and Sansa in a romantic light.” To which he said, “Well, surprisingly me too.. kind of.” That was enough for me to ship them.

What I am really trying to say in this irritatingly long ass answer is that I was person who never thought I would EVER ship Jon with Sansa, never wanted to ship them, went back and forth, had conflicted feelings about them throughout season 6 before jonsa became my OTP.

And it is my HONEST opinion that this is exactly what the makers of the show wanted us to feel. This is my Jonsa story!!!

A Little Thing About Troy Bolton and Why I'm So Defensive of This Poor Kid:

Troy Bolton is a tragic character when you really stop to think about it. Yeah, I’m well aware that he wasn’t intended to be (we’re talking about a series of subpar Disney Channel movies aimed at twelve year-olds), but consider this:

His entire life, Troy has been brought up to be a star basketball player. He’s the basketball coach’s son. Everyone in the community refers to him as “the basketball guy”. As long as he leads his teammates to victory and continues to be the star athlete of East High, everyone adores him. That’s a ton of pressure to put on a kid, but no one ever stops to think about how Troy might feel about it, or how the application of all of that pressure might affect him psychologically.

Then, when he’s sixteen, Troy realizes that he’s pretty good at singing. In fact, he actually enjoys it. He believes that Gabriella, the girl who just happens to aid him in this discovery, is someone that he can confide in, someone who would like the real Troy, the kid behind this image of East High’s “Primo Boy”. 

Of course, we learn that Troy is completely wrong about that. Gabriella ultimately turns out to be just one more person that only values Troy based on how associating with him can benefit her. She never supports him, unless doing so would make her look good, or he’s doing something that she can profit from. She sees the “real him”, alright, and she uses that insight as a means of mocking (“The Wildcat Superstar is afraid?” “You’re crazy, Wildcat”, “You have your team and I have mine. It’s where we belong. Go Wildcats”) or emotionally wounding him (“It doesn’t just seem like new stuff. It seems like a new Troy”, “The club talent show is a big deal to Sharpay, and, evidently, for your future. So, it’s cool. Make it happen. Wear your new Italian shoes”). She pressures him to live up to impossibly high standards (“I thought you were my fairytale, my dream when I’m not sleeping, a wish upon a star that’s coming true”, “I hope some of those activities include a job”, “Let’s just focus on right now! ‘Cause I’ve never been in one place for an entire summer”, “I want to remember this summer”), and when he inevitably fails to meet those standards, she harshly criticizes him, heaps on passive-aggression and guilt, and then abandons him until he apologizes for causing his own abuse at her hands. 

Troy spends a good chunk of his summer vacation getting sexually harassed by the daughter of his employers’. The sexual harassment is not only played for laughs, even when it takes a turn for the skin-crawlingly disturbing, but Troy also gets blamed for it by Taylor, a character who holds a grudge against him simply because he’s a jock and a boy, Gabriella, and the narrative, itself. 

His friends demonstrate how fragile their sense of loyalty truly is, as well, that summer. The very moment that Troy stops doing what they want him to do, they turn on him. 

Only once is Troy ever allowed to get angry at this behavior, by the way; in the first movie, when his friends/teammates’ selfishness and inconsiderate behavior almost ruins Troy and Gabriella auditioning for the musical, and would, as a result, obstruct the ultimate message of and resolution to the film. 

After that, Troy’s self-esteem begins to plummet drastically. And, this plummet is visible to the audience. He dubs himself a “jerk” for being concerned with his future. He believes that Chad- his best friend since preschool- and Gabriella- who has only been in his life for about six months, or so, at that point in the series- know him better than he knows himself. Troy is convinced that his future isn’t important if him trying to ensure a decent education for himself makes his friends unhappy. He allows his friends and girlfriend to bully him out of going after a scholarship, informing Sharpay that although performing in the talent show for the boosters from the University of Albuquerque could change his life, he’s “more interested in what [his] friends think of him”. He then apologizes to Chad for trying to better himself. 

Troy is so focused on pleasing other people, he just stops caring about his own future until around the last few months of his senior year. And, when it looks like another momentous opportunity is being extended to him during that time period, a potential scholarship to Juilliard, his friends and girlfriend all laugh at him. Not a single one of them is ever reprimanded for doing that, making it seem like the narrative wants you, the viewer, to think that Troy, himself, is one big laughing stock, and the very idea that he could ever get into one of the most prestigious performing arts universities in the United States is outright laughable. 

Troy reaches a point where he feels like he needs Gabriella to pick out his clothes for him so he’ll “look right”. His truck constantly breaking down results in Chad getting angry at him for needing help pushing the truck home, and Gabriella laughing as the engine splutters, and expressing complete apathy as the vehicle breaks down right outside her house. She stands there on her balcony, watching as Troy is left with no option but to walk home, too busy wallowing in self-pity to do anything for her boyfriend that she supposedly loves. 

Troy is guilted into encouraging Gabriella to accept the early enrollment at Stanford, and when he does, which is actually incredibly mature and selfless of him, Gabriella whines about how it’s unfair to her, and that she wishes everything would slow down to a stop, just for her, or that she could go back to kindergarten. 

Sharpay, the very girl that sexually harassed him relentlessly, the previous summer, winds up taking Gabriella’s role as Troy’s girlfriend in the school musical. 

When Troy considers looking into colleges outside of the one his dad wants him to attend, he’s scolded for it and pushed into having his second onscreen emotional breakdown. This one is astonishingly not made into a farce, unlike the previous one. 

Troy is told that Gabriella extensively stringing him along, only to decimate his hopes at the last minute that she’s actually going to follow through on her word and come down to attend the prom with him, makes her “one step ahead”. 

In the end, he “decides” that Gabriella getting to have her cake and eat it, too, is more important than his psychological well-being, and he follows her to college. Not a single person tries to talk him out of it. 

Think of how people would have reacted if the roles were reversed, if a teenage girl followed her selfish, passive-aggressive, emotionally abusive boyfriend to college, and was never allowed to figure things out for herself, or even accept credit for her own personal accomplishments, because the narrative was biased in her boyfriend’s favor and gave him credit for things that she did.

Think of the outrage that would have ensued. 

I will never understand why this was allowed to happen, and I’ll never not be angry about it. The appalling level of negligence and apathy that the writer showed to his main character, who happens to be a truly likable, sympathetic, good kid, is why I can’t stomach watching High School Musical 3: Senior Year all the way through ever again. Seeing Troy be forced to bend to his abusers, apologize for “causing” them to mistreat him, and wind up following his main abuser to college to please her, because she couldn’t make an effort to be with him, is like someone telling me that I deserved to be mistreated by my dad, that he was right in how he treated my family, that he deserves to have his house back, and that we should be more understanding of how he feels. That we should just accept him back into our lives and apologize for getting a protection order against him. It’s like telling anyone else with a history of abuse, or who is currently in an abusive relationship that if they don’t do exactly what their abusers want them to do and it makes their abuser angry, that they’re a “jerk”,  that their abusers clearly know them better than they know themselves, and that they aren’t worthy of love or friendship because they aren’t putting their abusers first at all times. It’s saying that if you just give in and let other people control your life without question, then and only then can you be happy.

And, that’s WRONG. I shouldn’t even have to get into how WRONG that is.

Sharpay kind of got the short end of the stick from the writer; never being really developed due to the “Status Quo Is God” trope resulting in her continuously reverting back to her scheming and manipulative state from the first movie, no matter how many times she learns her lesson, and being characterized as the “villain” when she’s actually more sympathetic and likable than Gabriella. 

As did poor Ryan, who they not only tried to unceremoniously shove back into the closet, but also receives very little screen time, in spite of his undeniable status as a fan favorite, is short-changed in the merchandise department, and, according to the merchandise that he is fortunate enough to appear in, isn’t allowed to have any friends other than his sister, Sharpay. Even though Zac Efron and Lucas Grabeel went to great lengths to depict Troy and Ryan as being very close, as in 'sexually and romantically interested in each other’ close, and Ryan is one of the only characters that treats Troy as though his feelings matter.

But, what happened to Troy is utterly inexcusable. Peter Barsocchini, Kenny Ortega, and anyone else involved with sealing Troy’s fate should be ashamed of themselves. Not only for promoting this repulsive victim-blaming mentality and glorifying a character as vile as Gabriella Montez, but for some of the most unforgivably bad writing I’ve ever seen. Kids movie or otherwise.

Yuu: “I thought nobody would need me and that I was just foolishly living but after living and waiting I was able to meet you again. Live with me. That’s why Mika, it’s ok if you’ve become a vampire.

Commentary: They were the first M/M ship that I’ve ever shipped and they were the reason I joined Tumblr in the first place. Also, I was not much into shipping in general before I started shipping these two. So basically, they ruined my life (and I’m happy about it).

2. Sormik (Sorey x Mikleo from Tales of Zestiria)

Favorite quote:
Mikleo: “Knowing you, you probably just don’t want to pull me in and trouble me with your burden. But it’s already way too late for that. Our journey already begun long before this. This isn’t just your dream alone.”
Sorey: “…Right. This is our dream!”

Originally posted by fabelyn

Commentary: I cannot even express how much I love these two and their relationship… I love how they always geek over everything and how they are always there supporting each other. Also, they are two adorable dorks.

3. Nezushi (Nezumi x Shion from No. 6)

Favorite quote:
Shion: “If I could turn back time and go back to that night… If I could go back to before I met you… I’ve thought about about that time and time again. And there’s always only been one answer for me. No matter how many times I was offered the choice… I’d still do the same thing. I’d still open that window and wait for you.”

Commentary: Their relationship is really unique and beautiful.

4. Rin x Archer from Fate/Stay Night

Favorite quote:
Rin: “Archer… Make a pact with me again?”
Archer: “I can’t do that. I doubt I have that right. Besides, I no longer have a goal. My battle ends here.”
Rin: “But… But this means you’ll… No matter how much time passes, you’ll never be saved!”
Archer: “…Rin. Look after me. As you know, I’m a bit hopeless. Give me a shoulder to lean on.”

Commentary: They are technically not canon but I really don’t care, I love their dynamics and they are really awesome when fighting together.

5. Juhaku (Judar x Hakuryuu from Magi)

Favorite quote:
Judar: “The two of us will probably keep on fighting everything in this world that rejects us, even after there is no one left in the world. Because we’re that kind of human after all. And that’s fine with me. By doing that, you will become my king who will push forward no matter what, because we have to fucking break that shitty destiny of this world. We will fight to the death. Are you ready for that?”

Originally posted by kryota

Commentary: I love their interactions?? so much?? and I loved to see them fighting together and being evil together while still caring a lot for each other?? Seriously their arc in the manga was probably the most intense and interesting arc in Magi (and this is saying much, given how much I love Magi in general). I can’t wait for their reunion!

Oh my god, I made this too long I’m so sorry xD I’ll tag @neqtar, @murasakihime, @faeribling, @ghoulish-trash, @mickeyblades, @trainer-t0uko, @hakutsun, @blackchobits, @guildmarks, @elaedan

I have a reason that i have to beat him, a reason that i have to win…!

You’re getting in the way of that.

Get lost.

Sakura can’t smile if you exist…!

HEY GUESS WHO RANDOMLY GOT EMOTIONAL OVER HEAVEN’S FEEL AGAIN TODAY SURPRISE ITS ME

I realized i hadn’t made a post yet about one of my favorite parts of Heaven’s Feel; Shirou’s ending motivation. At the very end of the route Shirou is quite literally dying. His body is skewering itself with his own sword creating power, he’s been losing memories and breaking down for the past 30 hours or so. (thats why there are gaps in the narration in the fourth cap, showing how his mind is breaking down) So Shirou, now dying, then gets beaten down by Kirei in a final brutal physical battle. In this moment where it seems that all is lost, that he will die and the grail will destroy humanity, the above caps are what goes through his head.

and i love it, i love it so much, that his goal is something so childishly simple and pure. He wants Sakura to be able to genuinely smile in front of people that aren’t him. That’s it. Thats all he wants.

  • Bless this episode for Astolfo, Karna and Caules
Hoshidan Festival: Laslow and Shigure Parent-Child Convo

(Couldn’t find a Japanese picture for my life.)

Laslow/Azura is my (young-il-long-kiyoshi’s) ultimate OTP in Fates, not just because the whole dancing/singing couple thing is cute, but because there’s just something that clicks with the entire family (three multi-talented artists, four if you count Olivia, and then black sheep Soleil is adorable). In particular, I think that Laslow is the best father for Shigure because he’s the only father who understands what it’s like to be shy about your personal artistic skill (as shown above. On purpose). Plus Shigure’s high SKL combined with Laslow’s Sol is hella OP. 

Little fun fact about Laslow’s artistic talents: it seems that he’s also inherited Olivia’s talent for singing, as in his support with Camilla, she mentions that his singing voice is as lovely as his dancing. Which makes Soleil’s lack of talent all the more hilarious in this family.

faeriexqueen  asked:

FOR THE BREAKING A CHARACTER DOWN - I'm asking about both of your children (Kanda and Alma). XD

OH THANK YOU SO MUCH!! I’m always to talk about them all the feel I have ;___;

Starting with Kanda

How I feel about this character: It’s a little bit ironic to me, I remember how I thought he would be the least interesting character, but here I am now. Kanda is just… such a good kid??? He makes me so sad, but at the same time I am so proud of him for living through so much awful things, and his character development destroys me. He lived for so many years dealing with a trauma and trying not to care about people who belong to the organisation that brought so much suffering to his life, but even after being able to leave, he returns to help Allen. And how he stops blocking all of his emotions, dealing with them now, even if it hurts. Oh god, I just want him to take more care about himself. 

All the people I ship romantically with this character: Oh that’s too simple XD I can’t really bring myself to ship him with anyone who is not Alma. I don’t mind other ships, of course, cause everyone can ship what they want, but Yulma is just such a special ship for me, they just really got on the highest level of love I could feel toward pairings. I’m so inspired by them, I have too many feels about them, and I just can’t stop appreciating everything they had in canon. This writing, this tragedy, all the spoken and unspoken love they had for each other in both lives… It’s just way too beautiful ;_____;

My non-romantic OTP for this character: THERE’RE SO MUCH. I really enjoy him interacting with others, because it speaks so much about his character! I really love the sibling-like relationship he has with Lenalee - it feels like they do not even need to talk much to understand each other. Same goes to him and Marie, man, I’m so happy that they were the first one to see Kanda when he returned to the Order AND HE SMILED AT THEM OH MY CHILD. 

I’m also really happy about how much his friendship with Allen improved?? Like, we couldn’t even call that a friendship at the beginning, but they’ve come so far, and the things Allen did for Kanda and Alma after learning their story breaks my heart. Allen’s truly an angel ;w; And so is Johnny, I really enjoyed the chapters with their interaction. 

I’m also really week for him interacting with Link, I just really enjoyed their talk. And I believe in combat they could be LETHAL.

My unpopular opinion about this character: I don’t even know?? I only remember seeing long-long-long ago one opinion that Alma’s arc has ruined his character and I’m still so angry about it, because, I really love this arc and the way his character is developed from being overpowered closed person to a very tragic child, who went through so much awful thing he didn’t deserve. So I just want to protect him, and I’m glad he’s appreciated enough here on tumblr.

One thing I wish would happen / had happened with this character in canon: why did ch. 200 just happened? It really really hurts me, that his most treasured memories for now are about Alma dying in his arms because it’s the only time they were able to spend together after so many years apart ;_____; They both deserved so much more! 

But sadness aside, I really am intrigued and happy about the arc Kanda’s getting now, becoming a General and going deeper to the Order’s core man that really gives me Roy Mustangs vibes somehow. And him finally being able to remember Alma makes my heart warm. I also want to know so much more about their past lives, and I hope we’ll get there in manga someday. 

And just… I really want them to meet each other in the end, whether it an afterlife or reincarnation. Not too soon of course, because Kanda has a lot of things to do, but I believe Alma would wait for him forever, what was their promise to each other after all ;w;

And of course how can I not talk about Alma too ^^

How I feel about this character: Alma is one of the dearest characters to me, honestly! I actually got myself into DGM because my friend noticed to me that I might like him, and she was right! He breaks my heart and his story reminds me of my another most favourite character ever from Fate series. Maybe it’s just my type of characters - I easily fall for those, who went through too much, who are filled with rage and hatred just as much as they are filled with love. And that really suits to Alma, not to mention the narrative of becoming a monster just because other people wanted that. The way he tried to use hatred to cover from unbearable sadness and fear of being unloved by the most precious person… It makes him so human, I want to cover him with a blanket and say lots of nice things to make this child feel easier ;___; Sorry, I just really love him, ahaha.  

All the people I ship romantically with this character: well, we all know the answer, I’m so invested Yulma it’s not a secret for anyone anymore ^^

My non-romantic OTP for this character: his relationship with Sixth Laboratory breaks my heart. He loved them genially despite them hurting him, and that’s the reason why his rage was so hard after learning the truth. Ah, I really love to think of some happy modern AU where Edgar and Tui adopt him, and Bak is the most nervous elder brother Alma could have (but most precious too)  

I really like to think of him being really close to Lenalee in some kind of AUs. I feel like they could understand each other’s bitter feelings about the Order, and help to each other with dealing with them. Not to mention that Lena is one of the closest to Kanda, so she might have understand how important to him Alma is and would do her best to support him. And she could tell him more about what kind of person Kanda became while they were apart <33 Ah, that’s too much of opportunities to explore! I could talk about all of them for hours I guess ^^”

My unpopular opinion about this character: Well… I guess I just really want him and his past incarnation to be treated and appreciated as different characters, and same goes with my love to my ship. I’m endlessly in love with the aspect of them being reincarnated lovers, but I actually fell for their relationship and story in their current lives. So, it makes me a little bit uncomfortable when people say Kanda loves Alma because he is that person he had been searching for. Their relationship is so much more complex than just that. 

One thing I wish would happen / had happened with this character in canon: like I said already, sometimes I wish ch. 200 didn’t happen, but that’s also a thing that makes me love Yulma so much, so… I’m just really happy that Hoshino even has drawn an AU for us with him being okay, how can I complain after that? So I just wish for them to have at least one hint of reunion in the afterlife or reincarnation or anything like that, because they SHOULD be happy and together, they deserve it so much! So I’ll keep on believing ;w;

Kill Me Heal Me appreciation post

So Kill Me Heal Me ended yesterday and the last episode was soooo beautiful (withdrawal is gonna be bad). The show did so many things right and I’m gonna talk about them…let’s go!

1. That acting tho…

I think I can safely say we all agree Ji Sung deserves every FREAKING AWARD! He successfully portrayed 7 personalities, all with their own individual fashion styles, manner of speaking and facial expressions. Seriously I thought they hired extra actors. Hwang Jung Eum did a spectacular job portraying Oh Ri Jin, the strong willed, comedic, happy psychiatrist who helps Cha Do Hyun with his DID. She managed to blend a gentle but firm demeanor which is exactly what the 7 personalities, who often get out of hand (-cough- Shin Se Gi, Yo Na -cough-) She was the reliable rock Cha Do Hyun needed but was also not afraid to lean on her family for support.

I loved them both so much in Secret ( a drama where they portray possibly one of the most melodramatic couples ever-seriously it will rip your heart out) I was thrilled to see they were paired up again portraying a somewhat lighter couple.

The rest of the cast was incredible, no matter how small the role everyone really worked hard and did their best to produce an incredible drama.

Special shout out to the child actors who portrayed very difficult roles and mini CDH did an amazing job showing us his Shin Se Gi.

2. That OST tho…

Hands down one of the best OSTs of all time! Auditory Hallucination sung by Jang Jae In and rapper NaShow was beautifully raw and powerful. It blended a killer rap and healing ballad (see what I did there) that really portrayed the shows theme of Cha Do Hyun’s struggle and Oh Ri Jin’s soothing guidance.

3. Those second leads tho…

Feel free to disagree with me but the second leads didn’t feel like true second leads. Usually second leads prove to be a heavy impact on the main couple, often even pulling them apart or making the leads doubt if they are with the right person. This was not the case here. 

Our first lead Han Chae Yeon is Cha Do Hyun’s first love that never was. Though he had a huge crush on her he never asked her out because of his DID and she went on to date his cousin. When he returned to Korea he only ever talked about her fondly since he was able to care about another person freely before DID took over his life. However he doesn’t instigate any romantic contact with her and he’s only concerned for her because Shin Se Gi will try to hurt those close to him. She on the other hand seems to enjoy the idea of having a pining love because when CDH doesn’t show any interest in her she becomes angry and tries to keep him tied to her by showing up unexpectedly at his house, breaking up with her BF, and secretly trying to get them engaged. She gets shot down hard and CDH sees right through her for the manipulative, possessive person she is.

The second lead is Oh Ri On, Oh Ri Jin’s adopted “twin” brother. Though it was established in the beginning that he had romantic feelings towards ORJ this was pushed aside to focus on his brotherly support and protectiveness. The only time he intervenes between the couple is when his sister is kidnapped. Fearing for her safety he demands that CDH stay away from her so she will be safe and no longer have to deal with the pain of her past. However when ORJ decides to stay with CHD because she loves him and wants to help him uncover his past he respects her decision. Though it pains him he decides to put her first and just become the best brother in world. YOU RULE OPPA!

4. That OTP tho…

Cha Do Hyun and Oh Ri Jin how do I love thee let me count the ways…

My babies, my sweet beautiful babies whom I love and hold in my heart forever. They portrayed a beautiful couple with a painful past and managed to turn it into a beautiful future. Their fate was tied when they were kids and sealed when they met again as adults. The reason why I don’t think there were any true second leads was because of their devotion to each other right from the beginning.

(This is the face that says “i like you”)

When they meet again outside the hospital Cha Do Hyun’s interest and attraction is obvious as is hers thought they both do there best to keep it from each other. As the drama progresses and they end up living together they become comfortable with each other and show skinship easily. Their romantic destiny is sealed when CDH ignores Shin Se Gi’s warning to stay away from ORJ and goes in for not just one but two kisses ( a rarity in the KDrama world- AND NO ONE AWKWARDLY WIDENED THEIR EYES AND KEPT THEM OPEN AS THEY KISSED!!!!) The fact they are open with each other, help each other and overcome great obstacles seals this couples fate as one of the greats in Kdrama history. 

5. That Oh family tho…

Oh Ri Jin’s adopted family is one of the greatest families ever. From Mama Oh’s gruff but gentle love, Papa Oh’s silly but wise words and Oh Ri On’s teasing but protective affection proves that imperfect but happy families can exist. They rescued their daughter from a life threatening situation and swear to raise her and protect her. They never once treat her less than own their flesh and blood child and support ORJ’s choice about her career and her love life while never being overly intrusive. For raising and protecting a beautiful child kamsamida!

6. That medical accuracy tho…

Medical done right. One of my many issues with medical dramas (and it’s little tiny minor thing with a HUGE IMPACT) is the fact they bulldoze right over the doctor patient confidentially. Yes I understand you need to progress your dramas plot line by having the doctor reveal the secret illness but work hard to think of a more creative reveal. KMHM main psychiatrist read the oath and wore in on his chest, never telling CHD family why he had been visiting him for so many years. They also take their time in explaining DID and how each of the different personalities work. Also since ORJ is a psychiatrist she was easily able to identify that CDH had DID. Thank you for not dumbing down a smart character for sake of the plot.

7. The child abuse…

One of the most serious themes of this show was the physical and mental abuse CDH and ORJ went through as children and the main reason for their trauma and CDHs DID. It was powerful and I think I was not alone in the anger I felt watching CDH’s father abuse ORJ in order to punish his son who ends up having mental damage. Abuse is not a topic that was glossed over lightly and it showed that everyone involved in the abuse, even those who just watched and ignored it were guilty of the crime (basically why I hated the entirety of Seungjin Group). When CDHs father woke up from his coma CDH didn’t allow him to play the victim for a moment and made it clear he wanted nothing to do with him. ORJ as well told her abuser if she ever forgave him it would be for the sake of bringing peace to Shin Se Gi and Cha Do Hyun who had to suffer and atone for his sins. It would never be for his peace of mind. 

Thank you to all the fans that came together to donated a little over $20, 000 to abused children because of this show. You are all amazing and have my deepest respect.

8. Those personalities tho…

Like I would forget to talk about the 7! All the personalities were amazing like I said earlier Ji Sung did an amazing job and I cried when each one left in order to give CDH peace. 

(I also do fan service ;) kekeke)

Shin Se Gi the personality who was the most hurt because he took all the painful memories of the past was aggressive but with the heart of a little boy who just wanted to be loved. This character was cool, sexy, and stylish. He and ORJ shared many deep and hilarious moments (rap scene anyone) He proved to be ORJs protector and grudgingly left only after CHD promised to remain strong and protect their girl. “You are me, I am you”

Yo Na won everyone’s heart (except her Oppa’s) with her antics and pink lip gloss and school uniform.She became so popular they even had real fans showup to cheer her on as she chased Oh Ri On down the street. Obsessed with handsome oppas (especially Oh Ri On) she took on CDHs stress. She and ORJ had a dueling sisters relationship, calling each other wench. After taking picture with her oppa and kissing him Yo Na departed to join her twin Yo Seob and it was sad to her go. I was happy to see her back in the body of a real girl who of course fell in love with her Oppa right away chasing him out of the bookstore.

Yo Seob was the suicidal but genius personality. Unlike his twin sister he’s introverted and prefers book and classical music. The gentlest personality he is the reason ORJ decides to become CDH personal doctor. Because CHD tried to kill himself at 17 Yo Seob was created and I wish they had also touched on this topic but with so much going on I understand why they didn’t. His goodbye happened early in ep 18 and he waited for his twin to show up before leaving permanently. 

Perry Park was the bomb making, boat obsessed, just trying to have one beer personality. The oldest personality Perry was fun and turned out to be the representation of CDHs father before he became abusive. Being the first to leave he dispenses wisdom to ORJ telling her to “be healthy and live freely” with CDH. His antics were hilarious and I was happy he finally drank his beer.

Nana the youngest personality was created in memory of ORJ. She was created at the same time as Shin Se Gi but only surfaced when CDH met ORJ. Born from the guilt and belief that she was dead Nana only ever appeared as a bear who turned out was the real Nana (talk about plot twists) and her real name was Cha Do Hyun (the plot twist that has us clutching our hearts and gasping for air).

Mr. X the mysterious personality finally showed up in the final episode. Dressed as a magician with a briefcase he was created to guide Nana as he was her father. Though his appearance didn’t have a huge impact on the already tied loose ends he was the “father” of ORJ and CDH promises to protect and cherish ORJ. Satisfied he and Nana leave together.

Thank you to entire cast and crew of Kill Me Heal Me you all worked so hard and it shows through the amazing fans you have! You all deserve all the awards!!!!

countdown to karin's bd; day 2

A Karin moment that pulls at my heartstrings

The thing with Karin is that since she keeps every emotion aside from anger and irritation pretty close to herself, whenever something gets to her to the extent where she actually shows it, it’s bound to basically crucify me with feelings. Even more so because said scenes are usually all about the details (imo, at least), and I’m prone to being more emotionally affected by those rather than by over the top ones.

So I have to name not one not two but three different scenes ;~; and it would be four, weren’t it because I’m certain 482 will get the love it deserves haha

I no particular order:

  • Chapter 484: Karin cries with Sakura.
  • Chapter 483: Karin tries to stop Sasuke from killing Sakura.
  • Chapter 466: Karin’s reaction when she thinks Sasuke died.
→ Chapter 484: Karin cries with Sakura

I’ll use the raw rather than the scanlations because I love to see the way Kishi writes Karin’s thought process. As we know, Karin tries to talk to Sakura, struggling with a “…Y…you…" that Sakura interrupts by reminding her that she shouldn’t be talking just yet. 

So it is through Karin's own thoughts that we see just what she meant to say:

敵の。。。お前の気もちなんか分かりたくもねえんだ。。。
Things like the feelings of the enemy... your feelings...
I don't even want to understand them...

There is so much to love about that single line in my eyes. So much.

Damon And Elena: It's Just The Beginning

Bonnie (to Elena): “When I touched you, I saw a crow. There was fog. A man…” 1x01

So to survive the overwhelming disappointment and heartbreak from the How I Met Your Mother series finale and to restore my faith in the endgame gods I am giving myself a challenge: to write about the progression of Damon and Elena’s journey and relationship episode by episode. Their parallels. Their turning points. Their conversations. Their every relevant moment, no matter how small. 

Starting with the pilot.

Which, upon viewing with the knowledge and hindsight provided by the ensuing 105 episodes is literally riddled with allusions to Damon and Elena’s journey. 

In fact, within the first five minutes, the writers had already begun dropping hints about them.

Bonnie: “I’m psychic.”

Elena: “Okay, then predict something. About me.”

Bonnie: “I see—“

And then a crow comes flying into the windshield of Bonnie’s blue Prius. 

A crow.

The symbol of TVD’s resident anti-hero Damon Salvatore. 

Elena asks Bonnie to predict something about her future and a crow literally collides with the car she’s sitting in and sends them into a mild tailspin. Because obviously that’s a coincidence.

I mean, it’s not like it’s foreshadowing how Damon came barreling into Elena’s life and sent her entire world into a tailspin.

Or that it’s alluding to the night of the accident that killed Elena’s parents. 

You know. The night she met Damon. 

Clearly there’s no parallels to be drawn from any of this. 

And let me remind you, this is five minutes into the pilot.

Five. Minutes. 

That is how quickly their romance and journey was put in play. 

Before Elena even met Stefan, before (so we thought at the time) Elena even met Damon, before the forces of the universe were able to bring the two doppelgängers together outside the men’s bathroom at school, the foundation of Damon and Elena’s future romance was already being laid. 

And the utter genius of it lies in its subtlety. This isn’t anything we could’ve ever known when watching the pilot for the first time. It is only with everything we’ve seen between them in the last five seasons, with all that we know about their road and how they fell in love, that we are able to pick up on seemingly insignificant details like this.

The writers actually set the groundwork for Damon and Elena before diving head first into the ‘epic romance’ that this series is supposedly about. Stefan and Elena’s budding fated love was secondary to the little details scattered throughout this episode that sow the seeds of the real true love story. 

Damon and Elena don’t even have any scenes together in the pilot. They don’t meet, they don’t have any conversation, they have no relationship whatsoever. In any other love story their journey would not begin in this episode. 

But this is no ordinary romance.

Elena: “Any siblings?”

Stefan: “None that I talk too.”

Believe it or not, even this is a seed. A sign of what is to come. 

At this moment in the Grille, Stefan doesn’t know that Damon is in town. So he’s naively assuming that Damon won’t be a factor in this life he is building for himself in Mystic Falls. A life centered around Elena.

Which makes this exchange incredibly relevant. 

Because Elena’s innocent curiosity about Stefan’s family is actually the writers way of setting up the triangle, the main focus of this entire series. 

This is their way of elusively reminding us that this isn’t just going to be about Stefan and Elena. That there is a much larger game in the works. 

They synthesize it for us quite simply: Elena and Stefan already have a connection and are flirting and trying to get to know each other. Stefan has an estranged brother who is actually lurking about Mystic Falls as they speak. And said brother Damon already knows all about Elena, is enthralled by her, as he is quick to inform Stefan later in the episode. 

The writers let us know right off the bat that Damon will be in the middle of Stefan and Elena. That he will be the lure that thwarts the whims of destiny.

And thus, the triangle was born. 

Elena: “Anyway Matt and I together, it wasn’t…”

Stefan: “Passionate.”

Elena: “No. No it wasn’t passionate.”

3x22 has turned this scene between Stefan and Elena by the falls into an homage to Damon and Elena’s first encounter four months previous. A meeting Elena doesn’t remember. 

The road behind the falls is where Damon and Elena met for the first time.

The first conversation they had was about why Elena was dissatisfied by her relationship with Matt.

And Damon’s truly ingenious insight about why she wasn’t happy with her boyfriend was because it didn’t hold the passion and adventure that she wanted deep down.

Of course this must be another coincidence. There couldn’t possibly be any significant reason for the writers to draw a parallel like this in a location so close to the road that saw Damon and Elena speaking for the first time.

Developing the roots of their bond as twin flames.

Stefan: “Why are you here?”

Damon: “I could ask you the same question. But I’m fairly certain your answer can be summed up all into one little word: Elena.” 

The first time you see the pilot you briefly find yourself wondering how Damon knows about Elena at all. It immediately arouses suspicion.

But five seasons later we know that he had already met her months before. Which completely explains that little smirk of appreciation. And the way he said her name. Like she’s the most relevant person in the whole town. Like she’s the reason he stayed too. 

Bonnie: “I have this feeling… That it’s just the beginning.”

And two seconds after she pronounces the last syllable of the word ‘beginning’ we hear Damon’s voice cut in from the next scene talking about Elena.

“She took my breathe away. Elena.”

Yet another allusion to their first meeting. Where it was written all over his face that she did, in fact, take his breathe away. 

And not because she looked liked Katherine.

Because she was the first and only person in Damon’s life to ask him what he wanted, what he was looking for. And they’d only known each other for a few minutes.

So even though he is currently operating sans humanity he is able to be shocked into silence by this girl. 

By his true love. 

Need I remind you: this is the PILOT. The first forty minutes of TVD ever. 

And there is already precedence and potential for Damon and Elena. Even with zero interaction between them.

But Stelena is endgame. 

I can’t even type that with a straight face. 

It’s too ludicrous.

Clearly the writers are not as invested in Stelena and never were. Because the tiniest of moments and conversations in this show have been about Delena from the start.

And 1x01 was just the beginning…
