This has the least amount of moments but it’s also got the shippiest moment of the entire video, so Now, I know some people ship it (I kinda do too from time to time) and to be honest there’s a lot of material in this vid so here are two bonus ships: Thomas/Roman: 1. “That was great” 2. “Why not” smirk, Thomas was 100% flirting here, it’s pretty obvious 3. “Roman, make it work!” suggestive look 4. “Aw, Prince 2.0h my goodness” 5.

Thomas glaring at Roman when he was going to say “paranoid” 8. “Verge, how you feeling?” 9. Thomas’s worried look 10. Thomas at Roman after Virgil changes: “Get on HIS level” 11. “Great new style, Virgil” 12. “That was cute” Vigil 13. Damn that one has the biggest amount of moments actually In other words, all ships are valid and should be respected. And I ship everything, I’m not even sorry.
I’ve re-read some of my favorite Naruto chapters and I’m still bitter over the fact that there weren’t more moments between Gaara and Naruto.
Like GDI Gaara was so protective about Naruto and his happiness:
1) he was willing to give Sasuke a chance to redeem himself when all the other Kages were more than ready to kill him just because he knew that this would break Naruto’s heart,
2) he made this speech in front of a thousand ninjas making it more than clear that Naruto was his primary reason to wanting to protect the world in the first place because, without his influence, Gaara wouldn’t have given a single fuck and would have murdered everyone left and right
3) then he gets exasperated that Naruto managed to get into the war but he’s more than happy to be fighting alongside him,
4) afterwards, getting frantic when it appeared that Naruto was killed, putting his life on the line to get the other to safety
5) asking Naruto to drink a cup of sake with him when he becomes Hokage, as a symbol to strengthen their bond
6) FINALLY, the freaking dream Gaara has about his ideal world, where all his family is alive and well (which still makes me teary eyed) but the crowning moment is Naruto arriving to have a play date with him, implying he wished that they grew up together *sobs*
Ok so I've seen some Kataang shippers admit that Kataang was forced and one sided, but they also say that they see no possible way of Zutara happening either at the end of 3 Books, I disagree with them of course I still think there is enough moments b/w the two where they could've been made the endgame couple even if Ehasz didn't get do his Book 4, plus even if they weren't end game at the end of Book 3 they were gonna be together by Book 4 if Ehasz was able to do it, what are your thoughts?
It will always be my opinion that Book 3 held more natural zutara development than kataang development.
Outside of the Headband, I cannot think of a single episode in which Katara shows feelings towards Aang that don’t breach the motherly realm. And, from other criticisms, we know that the Headband was a last minute episode thrown in to make kataang seem less forced in the finale, and it replaced an episode giving us further backstory for Aang.
Do you see that? He explodes on her because she doesn’t want to address the kiss or her feelings for him… and then pouts away and says he’s the one who should be scared of getting burned. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, Aang is the boyfriend who doesn’t hit you…. he hits the wall and smashes plates to show you how bad it will hurt if he does hit you.
So, yes, you and the few kataang shippers are right… this relationship was extremely forced, one-sided, and down-right unhealthy by the end of Book 3.
I disagree with you, however, that making zutara as obvious a couple as kataang in the book 3 finale wouldn’t have been forced or out of left field.
They did have a lot of cute, shippy moments:
And some major emotional development together:
However, in total, we saw Zuko and Katara together as friends for only a handful of episodes. In order for Zutara to not seem forced at the end of the series, we needed one of three things:
2) Book Four, like Ehasz wanted. Book Three could’ve ended with everyone single, then picked up in the next season with Zuko and Katara spending time together outside of a war-torn environment.
3) If Book Three had to be the end: a moment where Katara expresses with finality that she is not interested in a romantic relationship with Aang… followed by a moment, framed very similarly to the kataang finale kiss, in which Katara joins Zuko on the patio of the Jasmine Dragon, and says a lot has changed. He agrees with her, they briefly touch hands, which morphs into a hug, and the scene fades out.
For me, any of these possibilities would’ve made zutara a natural endgame, whether it was confirmed in Book 3, or post finale with comics/Book 4.
This page is so crazy I mean Armin just killed a human being and is internally and externally suffering to the point where he is literally vomiting and sweating and crying and as soon as he asked Mikasa that question right away he regretted that shit because how dare he make her feel sad so he started apologizing to her immediately to try and make HER feel better while I remind you he is the one who is physically and mentally in anguish.
So just try and tell me Mikasa & Armin don’t have the purest relationship in this series I fucking dare you.
So…I started the PD comic I was thinking abt doing a while back! Here’s some (very) rough sketches of the title page and snippets of the first 5 pages! I’m aiming for about 15 pages total but god knows it’ll probably end up longer than that haha…
Presenting, the future Hokage and her Right Hand Man in the making:
Not actually that shippy~ BoruSara moment but I really like it whenever Sarada bosses Boruto around. Boruto complains but always ends up following her orders which is funny and cute at the same time LMFAO.
I can’t wait for Sarada to become the Hokage, she’s just so perfect for the role. She is the mothafuckin’ law guys, THOU SHALL NOT DEFY HER SHANNAROOO!!!
I also like the fact that all other guys are scared of her when she’s mad lol.
Love Makes Her Stronger: Thoughts on Daisy Johnson and Quakerider
So I’ve been thinking (okay, obsessing) a lot about Quakerider since that finale, mostly kicking myself for not shipping them during the first half of season four. And judging by the reactions to this post, I’m not the only one who was surprised to find themselves suddenly all in for Daisy and Robbie. Now, when I say I was surprised, I don’t mean that in a bad way. I was surprised to see all these cute, blatantly shippy moments between the two of them in the finale because, back in the Ghostrider arc, any romantic moments they may have shared were much more subtle. And for any other ship, this might have felt rushed or forced, but with Daisy and Robbie, it didn’t feel that way at all because they’ve been through so many heavy, intense situations with each other already. When I say I was surprised, I mean that I was surprised that I never shipped them earlier, because, after watching them interact in the finale, it’s so obvious how great they are together, how good they are for each other.
When we look back at Daisy’s previous two relationships, it becomes even more clear that Quakerider is a very natural progression that matches Daisy’s evolution as a character. I don’t think Daisy could have become who she was without Ward or Lincoln, and I don’t think Quakerider could have happened without Skyeward and Static Quake setting the stage. And even though they’re separated again by the end of the season, I think it’s open-ended enough that it feels more like see you later instead of goodbye.
But before I get deeper into it, I want to look at how we got here, so let’s take a trip down memory lane and take a look back at Skyeward and Static Quake, shall we? Quakeriders, it’s gonna get wordy but I promise the payoff is worth it.
