Harry loved family reunions.

Amongst the bickering cousins and lurid pitter-patter of children, he often found himself feeling at peace as his folks filled him in on all the stories he’s missed out on. He’d laugh about his jittery uncle who nearly burnt his eyebrows off from an old barbecue, nodding approvingly as his aunt gushes about her eight year old who’s just won the flashy new title of spelling bee champion. He likes the way they treat him too. With adoration in their eyes, resurrecting from the years they’ve watched him as a young boy (instead of the usual gaze of stardom he’s used to). He almost, if not, especially enjoys the way they admire his success, not as an ego-booster, but as a way of praising Anne for his upbringing, despite the major gossip that briefly tainted his mother’s name around her first divorce.

But even in a house packed with his most favourite people, he would always feel relatively exhausted from the length of the reunion, a full four days he’d reckoned. It was unfair really, he loved his crazy family, but he always felt like he had to put on his best face, never getting his usual dose of solitude to rejuvenate.

So when Harry first invited you to join him, he hadn’t quite expected you to be so patient with his family.

“Yes, he is very handsome,” you’d chuckle, “but we’re only friends.”

“You’re sweet, love, but I think this little girl wins the beauty contest, hmm?”

“Right, he is very good with kids.”

“M’only in uni, ma’am, so I’ve got a few good years before settling down.”

Well, I thought I was done for the day, but apparently not. So have a sketchy sketch of Solas’ angry child, Spero. Goodness the Evanuris are not going to know what hit them. XD

 Anti-Narumayos, there’s been a bit of drama around here lately thanks to some of you guys and I’d like to address said drama.

*ahem* Here’s the deal. Paedophilia is sexual attraction a person 16 years and above has towards a prepubescent child (13 years and below). Paedophilia is wrong because the child is not old enough physically or mentally to understand fully the goings-on of a sexual relationship and this leads to sexual abuse. Therefore, I shouldn’t need to tell you that pasting this term on Narumayo is incorrect because Maya is seventeen when they first meet.

If anything, you should be screeching about how this is a minor x adult ship and that is wrong and gross and all that, but even then you aren’t quite right, either. Why? Let’s put things in perspective here. Minor and Adult relationships are frowned on and deemed as unhealthy for good reason— there is very likely to be a case in which the older takes advantage of the younger’s naivety and inexperience. This is the reason why a romantic relationship between Maya and Phoenix right after their meeting in Turnabout Sisters would be bad, but here’s the thing: They don’t start a relationship then. A romantic relationship is never established in the first game. And here’s another thing: People age. When you say, “Narumayo can’t happen because Maya’s 17”, it’s very clear that you, quite unfortunately, have the misinformed opinion that it’s the contrary. Newsflash: As of Justice for All, Maya is officially 18, of legal age. In Trials and Tribulations, she’s 19 going on 20, considering that it ends in the year 2019. In Apollo Justice, she’s 27 and in Dual Destinies, she’s 28. Narumayo shippers are, in fact, very aware that Maya is too young in the first game, which is why we only start shipping in the second game onwards. Do you finally understand now?

Plus, a good look at how Phoenix and Maya interact should tell you that there’s no danger of an unhealthy relationship between the two. You should know (considering that he’s the main character and all) that it isn’t in Phoenix’s nature to take advantage of anyone (in fact if anything, people take advantage of him), least of all Maya. Just look at 2-2 and 2-4 and the fact that he ran across a rickety burning bridge despite being afraid of heights and presumably fire (I mean how can you not be afraid of a fire that big)— It’s clear to see that he really, honestly cares about her. And Maya cares about him, too. Sure, she’ll call him an old man and tease him, but then again she keeps on lookout and snags him cases (the State vs. Will case and the State vs. Galactica case should spring to mind) when he’d most likely just sit in his office and wait for the cases to come to him (Aren’t you supposed to be working adult here, Nick?), which is really nice of Maya, considering it’s not really her job. Then of course there are the more extreme shows of devotion on Maya’s part—Maya initially refusing Phoenix’s help in Reunion and Turnabout because she doesn’t want him to take an unwinnable case despite feeling scared and alone and her note to Phoenix in Farewell, my Turnabout. Bottom line: They care about each other. There’s no denying it. The love is there. It’s just a question of whether it’s platonic or romantic and frankly it could go both ways. Personally I see it as a mix. Who said it couldn’t be both, right?

Another thing you can’t deny is this: They bring out the best in each other. Do you really have to be reminded that if it were not for Phoenix, Maya wouldn’t be able to channel at all? She wouldn’t have the motivation to be a spirit medium either. And do you remember the intro of Rise from the Ashes? Phoenix kept turning down cases because he didn’t have the motivation to keep working with Maya gone. He only took up the State vs. Skye case because Ema reminded him of Maya. They motivate each other to keep going. Tell me, would an unhealthy relationship work like that? No. It wouldn’t.

“Bu-uut,” you whine, “There’s an age gap of 7 years and that’s so unhealthy it will never happen” Well I have news for you, buddy, the many real life couples with an age gap who are happy together aside, there’s actually a canon couple with a 14 year age gap and a son—Winfred ‘Big Wins’ Kitaki and his wife, Little Plum Kitaki. Your argument has thus been rendered moot, take that. Bye bye.

All in all, you don’t have to like the pairing, but kindly don’t ruin it for people who do, because contrary to what you think, it is /not/ unhealthy, it is /not / morally wrong, so please sit down and stop hatin’. You just be embarrassing yourselves and it’s for the good of your own health, really. You’ll feel so much better if you don’t hate on ships. Here’s the end of my long essay, thank you very much ladies and gentlemen, have a good day.

I refuse to believe the reunion scene was a lie made by Silver but it would make sense for Silver to tell people he killed Flint/Flint died because then no one will go looking for him or Thomas and they can live peacefully happily ever after :3

yeah im with you there 

they are happy and together and alive and i refuse to hear otherwise 

I’ve been thinking about what to write about the 100th episode of POI for a while now. My heart is so heavy and I’m physically and emotionally exhausted but I’m going to try and compose some thoughts. 

First, of course I am absolutely devastated by the turn of events that occurred during this episode. Root is my all time favorite character from any tv show and I was not prepared to lose her before the series finale. I’m so disappointed that she’s going to be added to the ever-growing list of lesbian characters to be killed off this year. She’s better than being reduced to a trope and I want more than that for her. I also would never dream of telling anyone how they should feel about her fate. I’m only here to write about my experience and mourning process for my perky psycho. 

Now onto the episode. I was incredibly angry when I found out that Root was going to die. I went through a denial phase where I just didn’t believe it was actually going to happen and thought it must be some kind of simulation. I’ve felt sick to my stomach for about 8 hours now. But when I step back and really look at Root and her journey, as much as it pains me I do think this is a fitting end for her character…at least in it’s human form. I know people think that this ending would fit with the Root we knew from seasons 1 and 2, but not with the Root of seasons 3-5. And it’s true, when we first met Root, all she cared about was The Machine and finding it so she could set it free. But TM taught Root how to value human life. TM led her to the people who would become her family. She led her to the love of her life. Root would have never understood why the world was worth saving to begin with without TM. And that’s why I think this sacrifice is so fitting for her, even at this point in her character development. Root truly feels that the only way the team has any hope of taking down Samaritan is if Finch is alive, even if you don’t agree with that take…she absolutely does. Side note, I really am getting tired of people saying that she was killed by a stray bullet. Root saw the sniper on that building, knew they were aiming for Harold, and made a calculated decision that she knew came with great risk. That’s the farthest thing from getting hit by a stay bullet that I can think of. The only thing close is that she got struck by a bullet meant for someone else, but again…that was her choice.  

I know some think that her death is just being used as a way to motivate Finch into action. While I see and can understand that take, I also think it goes deeper than that. Besides Shaw, Harold is the most important person in Root’s life. He’s basically the father she never had, the person she has idolized for so long, and someone she has the utmost faith in. In season 4, she almost killed Beth in cold blood just because her proximity to Samaritan put Harold at great risk. How could anyone not expect her to sacrifice herself for the man that built her god and who she’s built this deeply emotional relationship with? And I truly think that Root felt like her sacrifice in that moment was what would keep her entire family safe, not just Harold. So even though this choice was for Harold…it was really also for Shaw too. And John, Fusco, and Bear. But I’m positive the two people that were at the forefront of her mind when she made that decision were Sameen and Harold. That is why I’m coming to accept that this was a proper road for her character to go down. And that’s to say nothing of the fact that Root basically transcending this plane of existence and merging with The Machine would probably be her number one choice for how to die. And thanks to another brilliant meta post on here, I begun to believe that Root wasn’t truly alone when she died. Yes, none of Team Machine was there with her…but I have to believe The Machine was with her a the end. She loved Root too much to not be there when Root needed Her most. That thought brings me a lot of peace after so much sadness at the thought of her being alone in some hospital.

One last thought before I finally succumb to the exhaustion that this episode has caused me to feel. I can’t really begin to imagine what Shaw was feeling after she learned that Root had died. She’s probably struggling to figure it out herself after everything she’s gone through. But if there’s one thing that Shaw understands, it’s sacrifice. She did the exact same thing Root did in If-Then-Else. She analyzed the situation, realized that there was only one option, and made the decision to give herself up so that the team could survive and continue to fight. So I truly believe that she would understand, to her core, the decision that Root made. And I think that if Shaw had been in Root’s position, she would have made the same choice. I hope the explore how Shaw is feeling in these last few episode and maybe even have her talk to Root!Machine. And I hope she knows that Root was always thinking about her, every day for the last year. Shaw died during countless simulations in order to protect Root, and now Root loves her right back by sacrificing everything to make sure Shaw can keep fighting. 

Again, I’m not saying anyone has to see things this way or feel anything other than what they’re feeling. This is an emotional time and I wish CBS hadn’t fucked us all over with delaying this season so much, and then airing these episodes in such a rapid succession. It made the heartbreak all the more painful because we only had 24 hours to savor Root and Shaw’s reunion. I refuse to blame the writers for that because they had literally no control over it. Anyway, I will always love Root and this show. It’s such important representation even if it didn’t end the way I had hoped it would. She showed people that a queer woman can be powerful and brilliant and witty and cocky and emotional and strong and just an all around epic badass…all while loving another woman. Her sexuality was never a big deal, it was never even mentioned. The team just accepted it and saw her for who she truly was. And I truly believe Root got her happy ending when the whole team was reunited at the end of 5x09. That moment was what she always wanted and she got it. Everything after that, especially with Shaw, was just a little more for her to savor. I will forever be grateful to Amy for bringing my favorite character to life. And I am excited to see her work as The Machine, though it will also be undeniably painful. Time to let sleep finally overcome me.

This summer, Refused are back.

Words can’t describe the excitement and anticipation surrounding these reunion shows. It’s been a long 14 years since they split making these shows even more special.

If they’re anywhere near you, make sure you witness this event!

Those attending Coachella are incredibly lucky seeing the first show.

Damn excited!
