sometimes i think about how if the writers had given delphine an ounce of backstory they could’ve made the conflict so much more interesting. if they had shown, not told or implied, that there was a figurative or literal gun to her head to become a monitor, to be cosima’s boss, to be the interim director, to do things for dyad that she didn’t want to do. actually shown it. the conflict would have been two women fighting for their own autonomy, the right to decide what they do with their bodies, who they do things for. the conflict would have been two women finding someone who understood, who could help, who needed help, who was willing to help. they would have found love and safety instead of more pain and fear. who when they made one stride forward for one it was two backwards for the other. the story would have been of two women fighting for each other instead of against. it wouldn’t just be ‘what’s that crazy bitch delphine gonna do next’ because we would actually know her motivations. we would know who she was outside of cosima and her own sexuality. not only would she no longer be the untrustworthy or depraved bisexual but the conflict would have been deeper. it would have brought up questions of who is right when neither party has a choice? is there another choice? whose priorities take precedence?
Leaning forward casually, hands planted on the solid oak of his desk, Steve looked out over the sea of twenty-three faces staring back at him. Some, of course, were staring at the ceiling or outside the window at the waving grass, yearning to enjoy the final vestiges of warm weather before winter inevitably struck. Others seemed focused on him, although their drooping eyelids and palms pressed up against cheeks, supporting the weight of tired minds indicated otherwise. The corners of Steve’s lips twitched into a smile.
“Alright,” he sighed, straightening up and adjusting his glasses, “We’ll break ten minutes early today, but any questions before I release you?”
Amidst a few sparse giggles at his light tone and attempted humour, a hand shot up in the third row, a tall boy with neatly trimmed blond hair and a sharp nose.
Steve nodded in his direction. “David?”
“Can we have until Monday to finish our essays, Sir?”
Steve looked pensive for a moment, surveying the class with hammed up disapproval. Suddenly all eyes were on him, backs straightening up and eyes attentive. “Yeah, why not?” he nodded once, “Any other questions?”
If there were more questions, they were drowned out by the sound of cheers and a chorus of voices telling him that he was the best. Steve couldn’t help but to grin. He had planned on extending the deadline anyway, but it was best to let the class ask first—he earned more brownie points that way. It was the same tactic he used around exam time, waiting for a student to ask if they could bring a cheat-sheet. It was a question sure to be asked and he always said yes.
it makes sense to me now why julie chose this storyline for sana for her season. why sana is very caught up with her friends and how everything is really fucked up and it just keeps getting added on and on and on…
because skam is about the main character’s shame on themselves, and sana’s biggest issue of all (that we’ve seen throughout the other seasons as well) is people fucking over their friends. she’s been the most loyal character out of anyone–i.e. not revealing even’s past, defending vilde, etc…–so for her to end up fucking over her friends in her season, the thing she despises the most, makes complete sense.
sana’s not ashamed of being muslim. she’s not ashamed of her religion. so for julie to show vulnerability in islam and the islamic culture would not fit sana and her personality. this is not me excusing her writing, however. because while she has touched on issues of islamaphobia, it is definitely a shame, in my opinion, for her to not have spent more time focusing on sana herself versus the storylines of everyone else. because it would have been nice to show the world more about muslim culture and the struggles that they face day to day, and i’ll never forgive julie for not spending more time on that, because it’s such a wasted opportunity.
basically this entire mess of sana fucking over her friends makes sense to her story and what she’s shameful about, but it’s been executed by poor writing and other plot lines trying to take over and i’m just bitter because the season could have been so much better if this storyline was written properly AND also actually focused on sana vs having her fall behind everyone else
Both brilliant, inventive, gifted, and… Extremely good looking, too. XD
Just a little AU that’s been floating around my head. I’ve seen this AU from different people and I just wanted to give it my own take. :3
Hope you guys don’t mind the rambling!
The Hamada twins are identical; only 10 minutes apart. But, they certainly come with their own differences. In fact, no one ever had difficulty in telling them apart.
Tadashi was more outgoing while Hiro likes to sit in a corner, quietly. Hiro is more anxious towards others and Tadashi is the one who would often tell others about his brother. At most times, Hiro gets embarrassed by how much Tadashi can talk about him.
At a very young age, they discovered that Hiro had genius level intellect and Tadashi is extremely adept in technology.
They both went to the same school but, Hiro was offered advanced classes. He refused because he wanted to stay in the same classes as his brother. They agreed to keep him in the same classes but, he was given extra classes which were taken a little after school hours.
Hiro learned extremely fast and one of his gifts is that he’s able to calculate highly complicated mathematical equations and he is able to decipher codes in a few minutes.
Tadashi was very, very proud of his twin.
Sadly, Hiro was not treated well by their classmates. They thought he was arrogant and a know-it-all so they subjected him to bullying every single day. Tadashi would always run to defend him and he would tell others off that it’s not right.
A few years into middle school, Hiro actually got bored and accepted the acceleration. He then attended high school ahead of Tadashi. He was extremely lonely, though. Because of that, Tadashi became more and more determined to invent new things which him and Hiro can enjoy together.
Hiro graduated ahead of Tadashi but, he didn’t want to go to college. He said that it’s only a place that would “tell him what he already knows.”
Tadashi is a little upset over it but, he wouldn’t want to force his brother. He was able to get in San Fransokyo Institute of Technology by winning the showcase with his prototype “Robotic Nurse.” They saw the potential in him and getting into his dream school, Tadashi knew he can further his craft and share his passion to the world.
Hiro though, decided to work on his undefeated streak in Bot fighting. He even claims to be the “King of Bot fighters” much to Tadashi’s frustration. He would go out late at night and go home very, very late. It has been the recent cause of Aunt Cass’ increased stress eating, sadly.
But, Tadashi is hopeful that it would all change once he directs Hiro into using his gift for the better.
A little tour around his “nerd school,” as what Hiro called it, would surely nail his interest.
And so, that’s when Hiro first met Baymax and his awesome group of friends.
Baymax was designed by Tadashi because he remembers how Hiro is quite a sickly kid and even quite accident prone once he gets to inventing stuff. Trips to the emergency room weren’t always that pleasant. But hey, it’s all part of the trial and error that goes into their inventions.
Hiro was actually overwhelmed by all the people suddenly showering him with attention. He wanted to hide in the corner when Honey told him that Tadashi talks a lot about him. Go Go and Wasabi amused him to no end while Fred managed to make him jump a bit but, it’s all cool. He thought his brother’s friends were all brilliant and very interesting.
After the little tour, Hiro tells his brother: “I. WANT. IN.” He knows that look on his face well and that’s when he’s extremely determined to get what he wants.
Of course, Tadashi was more than willing to help get his brother.
If Ishida forces Touken into being canon, I will drop this series like it’s hot.
Stop trying to recreate Anteiku, please. It just doesn’t work anymore. He’s made me despise Touka now, so please stop trying to recreate Anteiku and please stop trying to recreate Arata. I get that it’s his story, but he’s starting to force the characters on paths they didn’t grow to go towards, and it’s frustrating to watch everything deviate from what it was leading up to just to let Kaneki and Touka bang and get everyone’s jollies off.
I’m going to trust in his writing a bit longer because I know he’s good at it, and especially because I love this series so much and I don’t want to drop it. But I’ve forgiven enough forceful plot, and this horny Touka bullshit is getting cringe-y and ridiculous.
