show her you love her

Oh man oh man, you guys. I am OVERJOYED to talk about this! <3

Jaal’s first “oh, damn” moment came during the initial excursions on Havarl. He, Vetra, and Gemma had been slogging through some dense plant growth for hours when he spotted a shortcut from his childhood. It involved a lot of climbing, and Vetra gave him a (gentle) hard time about it, but what Jaal remembers is Gemma staring up the incline, a little frown on her still-strange face. When he asked her what she was doing, she said “I’m trying to figure out if I can do it in four boosts, or three”. Then she grinned at him, and said “I bet three,” and took off. He watched her jet to the first outcropping of rock, catch it, and leverage herself up, and then keep going. 

She made it in three, and laughed when she reached the top. 

He lost his handhold just before he reached her, the rock crumbling under his hand, but Gemma was already there, so fast he never even knew she had moved, and she had her hand locked around his wrist before he could yell for help. And to this day, he remembers the jolt that went through him at the contact, and how her grip did not falter – and how bright her eyes were as she pulled him up. Oh, he thought. This feels familiar. 

No, he added, only to himself, when Gemma – this alien woman – grinned up at him, this feels good.

Gemma’s moment came later; it was seeing him on Aya, after they rescued the Moshae. She found him on a balcony, looking out over a forest so green it hurt her eyes. For the first time since she woke up, she had a moment to pause, and breathe, and not worry about getting attacked, and she was happy to just bask in the sunlight and the rustle of wind through the leaves with a friend. 

She would have been content to stay quiet – Jaal didn’t owe her conversation after all her prodding back on the Tempest and in the Nomad – but he started pointing out the farms where he had worked as a teenager, his favorite place to watch the sunset, the races he and his siblings used to run near that river to the west – and she felt every knot in her spine coming undone. 

He spoke with so much love for everything around him, and Gemma was so tired and lonely and hating being either of those things that she started crying. She’d always been one for a good stress-relief cry, but this was exhaustion, and longing for home, and grief, and the pressure of knowing everything depended on her. 

She tried to keep quiet about it – not really good diplomacy to start bawling in public, especially if you were the damn Pathfinder – but when Jaal noticed, he just put his arm around her shoulders and told her no one would shame her for this, of all things. 

Gemma tried to make a joke – cover my back for a few minutes till I stop looking like a boiled tomato, okay? – but he was looking at her so sincerely, so gently, that she just nodded and maybe – maybe – leaned into him a little. Jaal was alien, half his people wanted to kill her, and she didn’t really blame them – but he was warm, and solid, and he didn’t let go till her tears were done.

Before you shit on Silver and Madi being together romantically on Black Sails just consider that Long John Silver, one of the single most iconic pirate characters ever written, has always had a wife of African descent!!! and in the 183 years since it was written ONLY ONE other adaptation, not even THE ORIGINAL, has ever shown a Black woman respect before now! If her character is not completely erased or overwritten, it was suggested that there was no conceivable possibility that he actually loved her or that she could possibly be attractive or desirable simple because she was Black. So, nope, sorry, it isn’t progressive to ignore her just to ship him with a man. It’s incredible that Madi Scott even exists as a character, let alone that she is shown to be loved and integral to the storyline and Silver’s character in this show. If you erase that for a ship between two white men you’re literally not more “progressive” than Robert Louis Stevenson, who in the 17th century wasn’t even homophobic, but was certainly racist. Don’t erase Madi as Silver’s love interest, it’s disgusting.  

i just finished binge watching you me her on netflix and it’s the first television show i’ve ever watched that features an openly poly couple. it has comedy, drama, romance and it even gave me some serious wisteria lane flashbacks as the neighbors started to snoop into their personal business. the characters are all well written/acted and i’ve even seen ppl call each other out for saying problematic shit like sexist stuff. it’s happening more often in tv shows and all i say is “keep it coming, stay woke tv creators”

if it’s something that you think might interest you as well i definitely recommend you check it out. fair warning, it gets a little raunchy at times. but despite me usually not digging that, it’s the characters that really came thru for me on this one. not only are the three main characters all likable: izzy is super funny and dedicated and so well acted, her pain and her struggles felt real, just like her happiness. emma is so inspirational and strong and deserves all the good things at work. and then there’s jack, who’s just as smart and good at his job but also he’s a gentle man and an adorable doofus

man, this is the first time i have ever watched a love triangle unfold and i ended up rooting for everyone in the scenario

Love this moment. 

It’s almost like she knows J is in that helicopter coming to get her and she’s looking at the Squad thinking, “Yeah, you and I can handle them easy.” 

This little moment subtly reminds the audience that they are a team and that Harley is only there to get back with her puddin. Really does show what Harley is willing do to, willing to betray, to get back to Mistah J. 

Bonus:  

Joker’s thinking, “HEY, BABY! DADDY’S HERE AND READY TO GET ON THAT BEAR SKIN RUG WITH YOU!”

I have so few things to remember my family by. They took everything from us.

hauntedtelepone replied to your post “All of your tags from the “world without YOI” ask. All of them. This…”

It’s not just that homophobia isn’t addressed. It doesn’t EXIST. Kubo sensei said that no one minds who you love in that universe and basically no one needs to adress it because it isn’t there. It’s a world to dream of and aspire to (and for me - a reality to fight for).

^^^^^^ can you write this on my tombstone please & thank you

Everyone seems to wonder why the big reveal in the Supergirl storyline with Mon-El felt so obvious, why we knew so incredibly long ago, before they got close to being a canon ship, that he was the prince of Daxam whether or not we ever touched a comic or read commentary.  The reason is:  if we knew for a long time, we would get used to the idea.  So rather than identifying with Kara’s shock, fear, and outrage, we would identify with Mon-El’s discomfort and shame.  That’s the way you subtly focalized a story through one character’s perspective in order to make them appear as the more vulnerable and identifiable party.  They never did anything like this in season one.
