You dont gotta tell me that sis. And you most definitely sent this to the wrong person cuh your tone is something else.

I ship r!chonne too and I’m far from being white, so I need you to stop right there before m’ melanin wilds out. Second of all, Caryl been sayin “I can’t lose you” since season 2. They paralleled each other beautifully and meaningfully. Get over it sis :-)

Things my heart used to know. Things it yearns to remember.

one thing i love about TG is how well-crafted it is across a variety of levels/depths. The Story on its own is totally consumable in manga format, you can turn each page and swallow easily, but there’s also so much to chew — Tarot numbers, literary references, parallelisms, a totally different game to play if you want to pick up the pieces.

then there’s the stuff outside the manga itself — the light novels, but also ishidasensei’s twitter and tumblr posts with quotes and excerpts and music, the card deck, the calendar, these whole other objects so rich with information to mine and jigsaw together.

i’m always wary of over-idolizing a human being but i really admire this aspect of ishidasensei’s storytelling a lot. it’s rare that a story has made me feel so respected/cherished as a reader. and of course it’s possible none of it is as well-planned as i think, but when there’s so much well-aligned detail, reading TG is like receiving a gift, is like playing a scavenger hunt personally laid out for you.

i feel so thankful to be alive at this very moment, to be able to experience this story as it’s happening, as its parts are released and dredged and illuminated. it’s so once-in-a-lifetime — this exact story, these exact characters, this exact plot, this exact drip and dig of data, the mystery of the final picture. this will never happen again.

Hey! So I'm rewatching the first season of The 100 bc bored as hell haha and I can't stop wondering if Lexa was aware of everything that was happening with the Sky people like before it got super serious, because I'm pretty sure she lives in Polis and not the middle of the woods so idk. Do you have any thoughts about this? I love your blog btw:)

oh girrrrl. I wish I could have somehow compile the hours i have spent watching this show, seriously I watch like an episode or part of an episode everyday. This show is so full of symbolism and parallels and excellent quotes and I just LOVE IT OKAY!?!?! Thanks for liking my blog!! :D Okay…now onto your question:

No doubt that Lexa saw the Dropship fall from the Sky, or at least hear accounts from something falling into Trikru territory. Lincoln was sent to scout out the delinquents and that is when he drew the stuff in his book. You see in in the tree’s at the very end of (1x02) and you see his book in (1x07):

Bellamy and the others while looking for Octavia walked into Trikru territory where scouts killed a few of the delinquents. This is when Lincoln sounds the horn and saves the rest of them from being killed. In (1x07) Lincoln was captured and was held captive and tortured, he probably missed a check in or something and maybe that is when Anya came to TonDC? Or maybe Anya was in a Unit General for the warriors in the TonDC area so she was already there. Anya was the ‘ambassador’ for Lexa in (1x09) when she met Clarke on the bridge, talking about peace negotiations. Then Jasper fired the first shot and effed up the peaceful negotiations. Anya was shot and probably went back to TonDC where the rest of her Unit was waiting. A message was probably sent to Lexa about the failed negotiations. This is probably when Lexa gave Anya the ‘green light’ to move forward on the attack. 

Then in (1x10) that is when they sent Murphy back into the Dropship camp to weaken them with a virus. They use this virus to weaken their enemies before they attack. This is when the Delinquents blow up the bridge and this is when Tris is injured. Tris dies in the next episode and in the next Clarke is captured. I have a feeling Anya was going to take Clarke to Lexa before Tristan showed up, and told them to kill Clarke. Tristan shows up to tell Anya that Lexa is giving her Unit to Tristan because she failed at the peace talks and at the attack on the bridge. That is when you see Anya’s face drop, and knowing know that Lexa was her second you can see how much more this moment hurt for Anya.  Then Tristan also failed at killing the delinquents. I think Lexa was sent messengers with updates on the battlefield constantly.

When the rest of the Ark Station fell from the Sky and Lexa probably called a Coalition meeting or something, but then Finn massacred TonDC and that is why Lexa came herself to deal with the Arkers. (P.s. I’m kinda thinking that Polis is Philadelphia…they better tell us where it is this season) 

Anywho that’s my ‘off the top of my head’ run down of all the events that happened in Season 1 and how Lexa probably was getting the sad play by play in Polis. She knew of Clarke ever since Anya went to go meet her in (1x09).

CS + “Now is not the time to be jealous”

Requested by Anonymous.

You may already know that I love love love jealousy scenes! They are my favorite (and Hook being jealous of Past!Hook is my ultimate favorite part on the entire show). So I obviously loved this request. Thank you so much Anon! 

In the regular CS + Word list I already did a jealousy gifset, so for this one I decided to focus on the “it’s not the time for it” thing and show situations in which they should have really been concern about other more crucial important stuff that were going on, but instead they couldn’t help but being totally jealous. I just Love it!!! :)

Send me a word/quote/parallel and I’ll make you a CS gifset inspired by it.

I wanted to try something a bit different this time around, so as to give everyone who might be interested the possibility to participate without having to do some editing at all costs.

This way you should be able to complete this in any way you want: with gifsets, picspams, fanarts but also screencaps, fan videos, fanfics, playlists, metas, comments and so on. 

When the week comes, please remember to tag all your stuff with VEAW15 as well, so as to not miss anything!

For any question or doubt please do not hesitate to ask.

As always, a big thank you to realmofvane for your incomparable support and precious advices!
