ready for the

listen. l i s t e n. barry j bluejeans is the lover. he loves so much that he is defined by it. lup was more important to him than his own life, a fact that he proved many many times over an eleven-year period by literally dying for her again and again.

but it wasn’t just lup on the starblaster, and it wasn’t just lup that barry loved. the starblaster became his family, and barry, who is known for his love, loved them too.

so give me a barry who stays up until four in the morning sharing stories with lucretia, reminiscing about the lives they lost to the hunger and talking about the families they miss dearly. give me a barry who spends years chipping away at taako’s facade with infinite patience, because he knows there’s more to taako than the fronts the elf throws up, is overjoyed when he finally sees the elf talk to him about something serious. give me a barry who sits quietly next to davenport and coaxes jokes out of him, never judging, to reassure his captain that his crew sees him as more than a silly gnome with a silver ship. give me a barry who gets pranked by magnus and throws himself into his retaliation with eagerness, because it makes magnus laugh and anything that makes his little brother laugh is worth doing. give me a barry who engages in theological debates with merle for hours about the religious connotations of necromancy, and then learns dwarven drinking songs with an atrocious accent to sing with him after they leave fungston. 

give me a barry who loves - who loves so much that his love defines him across the universe.

“Are we ready?”

coming into 2018 all I want is every aspect of my life to be genuine. genuine love and connections. genuine intentions. genuine curiosity. genuine happiness. I want everything about me and my soul to be genuine and I want it to radiate throughout everything I do, think or say.

y’all are still sleeping on noah schnapp’s performance in stranger things 2 and that is completely unacceptable. noah was given possibly the most challenging role this season. he had to literally play levels of his character. from a normal will to a depressed will to an anxious will to different levels of will becoming possessed to him being fully possessed- basically playing the monster itself. he had to literally act in response to a green screen (NOTHING) in so many scenes and he still was perfection and effective with his emotion. he had so many scenes that were emotionally challenging and amazingly delivered but I don’t hear any of you talking about it or praising him. I get that he wasn’t a big part of season 1 (even though you can see glimpses of his talent in episodes like ‘the body’), but that’s what makes it even worse. because he’s out there coming back this season and giving it his all and performing at such a high caliber that deserves an emmy/golden globe/SAG award and people are just ignoring him to talk about billy or the characters from last season who have already received so much praise (deservedly so). interviewers talk over him or ignore him and act like he doesn’t exist in the show even though the entire show mainly surrounds him and el. give noah schnapp the recognition and praise he deserves.

all these american artists just stand there and look pretty while their backup dancers do all the work, I can’t wait for the audience to see bts being triple threats singing, dancing, and looking beautiful
