she doesn't say anything about it

I really love the idea of Cass completely falling in love with dancing.  She was raised to think that her body is nothing but a weapon, and dancing teaches her that she can make something beautiful with it.  No matter what genre of music is playing, Cass has an uncanny ability to move with the beat in a way that can’t be taught.  You know that one person who hits the dance floor and everyone around them stops and watches in awe?  That’s her.  Ballet is one of her favorites because of its storytelling and its elegance, so unlike the sharpness of battles. Dances have all of the good aspects of fighting –the intensity, concentration, fluidity, adrenaline– without any of the bad.  Her movements aren’t being used to hurt, but to create.

What Stephen and Emily have to say about season 5.

youtube

 I love this scene so much. Especially the line of Clarke saying “what if it was too dangerous and I sent him in there anyway?” People think Clarke realized Bellamy was in fact not worth the risk in 3x02 but she was feeling this way so much sooner. They could have written L to say literally anything but instead they have her say “You care about him.” This was very deliberate. We know L had romantic feelings for Clarke by then, and this comment she makes..it’s curiosity. You could even call it jealousy. 

Look at the way Clarke responds. It takes her a moment to formulate the response. There’s nothing automatic about it, she’s gotta think first. She turns to face L when she says “I care about all of them” as if to say ‘see I’m looking you in the eye as I say this, it’s true, believe me’  

L does the same as she turns to face Clarke, looks her in the eye, and says matter of factly “Yet you worry about him more.” It’s not a question. It’s a flat out statement. 

And Clarke doesn’t deny it. She gets angered actually. She tries to cover it up by saying “We need him” but soon after her guilt becomes apparent. That if something happens to him, she’ll have no one to blame but herself for telling him he was worth the risk. And she’s flat out pissed. She sent Bellamy in there because if love was weakness then she couldn’t let herself feel it. Not again, not after hearing Finn’s last breath in her ear. She’s pissed because it was L’s “Love is Weakness” motto that encouraged a still grieving and heartbroken Clarke to suddenly change her mind and tell Bellamy to go. 

L tries telling her this is what it means to be a leader, “we must look into the eyes of out warriors and tell them go die for me” and Clarke responds with “if only it were that easy.” Because Bellamy’s not her warrior. He’s not her “knight”. That’s the last thing she wants him to be. 

He became much more then that. And that’s proven just 4 episodes later in the 3x02 scene where we see her beg for his life. He did what he was suppose to do right? He fought for her like a good warrior would, he tried to protect her and save her like a good knight would. But when it came down to it, she’d give herself up before feeling that kind of worry again. 

And suddenly the finale scene, Clarke’s face upon hearing “Start with Bellamy Blake” makes even more sense. All this time she tried so hard not to let herself be weak, she tried so hard to push down, and bury, and build a wall around these feelings so that she’d never have to worry or see something happen to him because of her. And now ALIE knows her #1 weakness is him and she doesn’t even have the words to express the fear we saw in her eyes.

random headcanon: Allura wants to know more about human *ahem* courtship rituals because ~*~rEaSoNs~*~ *cough*hugecrushonshiro*cough* and she asks Hunk about it because of all the other Paladins she figures he’s the least likely to smirk or get weird about it or make it A Thing. and Hunk is really sweet and helpful and talks to her for 45 minutes about dating and crushes and what you do if you like someone and Allura’s like ‘wow thank you so much Hunk I really appreciate this information that i needed for SCIENCE’. and Hunk’s just like ‘so are you gonna ask Shiro out or what?’ and Allura’s like ‘whaaat i neve ir awourld whar oirk i don’t know aht you mean’ and Hunk’s like ‘chill i’m pretty sure he’d say yes GOOD TALK g’night Princess’

Emily: I need to know the truth. Did you kill her?
Ali: *literally in a hospital drugged up outta her mind*  ffjsaodfijoafija
Emily: *running around Rosewood* ALI DID IT! IT WAS ALI! SHE DID IT!
Emily:

(promises to draw stuff but indefinitely delays doing so and just finishes draws of the girlfriends from weeks prior)


guess who survived her first week of classes? 😏

anonymous asked:

Is it just me or does the narrative tend to treat Yang as an accessory of Ruby rather than her own character? Just the plot focuses on how Yang affects Ruby with Mercury leading to Ruby following him, or Tai training Yang to go after Ruby. At the very least Ruby seems to be first priority

i’m hoping that’s deliberate because Yang does have her own things going on and so that Ruby being Yang’s first priority will be deconstructed (i mean with Tai that seems deliberately focused on what he wants, he makes a vague allusion to being dissatisfied that he can’t go after Ruby because of Yang, but then layers on the guilt thick on the “are you going after your mother, which is what you want, because you’ve been chasing that for years, or are you going after your sister, which is what i want, because if you don’t i’m going to vaguely imply you’re horrible”) - it seems a lot worse than it really is because of the meta around it, with a large chunk of the fandom treating Yang as nothing but an accessory to Ruby and not a main character in her own right

Ruby is Yang’s first priority, there’s a good reason for that (Yang basically raised her), but i’m hoping they’ll tackle why the situations she’s been put in that led up to that and that everyone just presumes of it her aren’t healthy

BLUE APPRECIATION WEEK | day 3: favorite bluesey moment 

“I wish you could be kissed, Jane,” he said. “Because I would beg just one off you. Under all this.” He flailed an arm toward the stars. “And then we’d never say anything about it again.” That could’ve been the end of it. I want something more. She said, “We can pretend. Just once. And then we’ll never say anything about it again.” What a strange, shifting person he was. The Gansey who turned to her now was a world away from the lofty boy she’d first met. Without any hesitation, she stretched her arms around his neck. Who was this Blue? She felt bigger than her body. High as the stars. He leaned toward her — her heart spun again — and pressed his cheek against hers. His lips didn’t touch her skin, but she felt his breath, hot and uneven, on her face. His fingers splayed on either side of her spine. Her lips were so close to his jaw that she felt his hint of stubble at the end of them. It was mint and memories and the past and the future and she felt as if she’d done this before and already she longed to do it again. Oh, help, she thought. Help, help, help. He pulled away. He said, “And now we never speak of it again.”

Headcanon that every time RBY include Weiss in on things she gets super intense about them. Like Ruby got her to read a comic once. The next day Weiss could practically recite the entire lore of that series all the way back to it’s original release 60 years ago. Blake recommended a book once. Weiss read the entire series, and then all other works by that author. Yang found an RPG that she thought was kinda fun. Weiss picked up the game and maxed out her character within the week.

when normani compliments you she’s so honest and sincere that even you believe what she’s saying and that’s what really got me when i met her because it made me realise that i’ve hardly heard any fan stories about people meeting normani which makes me sad because goes to show that not enough attention and emphasis is placed on her she’s the most underrated member by far

I hate that you can’t voice legitimate criticisms about Ma//risha and Key//leth, or even other members of the cast, without someone saying “stop being so mean! she gets a lot of shit already! she doesn’t owe you anything, it’s her character!”

EDIT: bulk under a cut bc this is probably a very obnoxious looking post and it’s also very VERY VERY salty

Note

my psychiatrist didn’t believe me. she thinks I’m just struggling with gender confusion, my depression, and something either biological like thyroid problems or some side effect of my fibromyalgia medicine. She thinks i’m scrambling for a diagnosis, that i’m a hypochondriac. she thinks i want treatment to be “normal”, not just confirmation like i kept telling her. she wasn’t listening to anything i was saying, and it’s like she was completely disregarding all the evidence i brought in with me since i knew i wouldn’t speak well, and she was ignoring that i was anxiously stimming the entire two hours i was with her…now it makes sense why most adults who weren’t diagnosed when they were little don’t get officially diagnosed. my mum and friends believe me, though, and accept me. and i don’t feel like such a freak now, so i don’t need an official diagnosis to be happy about who i am and what i can now do for myself to feel better about my life and the struggles i go through

Can we take a moment to talk about how Jace never, not once tried to force Clary into making a decision when she was struggling with Simon’s situation? Not even when Raphael offered her the shovel and the stake, and Clary looked at him completely lost, he still didn’t say A WORD and let HER be the one in control of the whole thing?

Sure, he offered her his perspective on things by telling her how following his heart had turned out for him, but when Clary shut him down, he stayed silent and didn’t push it.

He never judged her decision, never questioned her motives, never tried to get her to do what HE would’ve done and never made her feel bad about her choices. All he did was literally just stand by her side the whole time, comfort her and hold her when she needed it.

And even when he did finally say something, it was to call Simon a fighter and to make a lame joke to try and get Clary to smile.
