I get so emotional when I think about the mayhem twins because they’re such an important m/f relationship that stayed platonic from beginning to end and that’s just so big???? And it shouldn’t be but it is. That’s just how rare m/f platonic relationships are on tv, it’s to the point where majority of the time a male and female will start off as friends and you’re thinking ‘good I hope the writers keep them this way’ but of course the writers pull a 'I don’t think so’ and end up having them eventually fall for each other. I’ve seen it happen too many times at this point so the poi writers keeping Shaw and Reese as just friends the entire series is admirable to me. Reese was literally a big brother to Shaw and was always there for her even when she didn’t think he would be. That’s just how much he loved her in a supporting way; Any other show’s writers would’ve definitely made them romantic, meanwhile we got blessed with the amazingness that is Root and Shaw and their entire dynamic and it wasn’t even supposed to happen. That’s another thing I’ll never get over…
Shoot weren’t planned!!1 Every little thing we got involving their relationship was just the writers going with the flow after their first scene together. How crazy is that? The writers had no idea they’d eventually give us this amazingly iconic slowburn with these two heavily complex characters. And because Root and Shaw weren’t planned, we got to see so much of them outside of their dynamic first which was what the writers originally planned for them and then along the way they just kept adding to their relationship making them develop feelings for each other, etc. For something that was never intended, it sure as hell felt natural and organic. Part of that is credited to the writers but the other is in part to Amy and Sarah’s incredible chemistry. I mean they really DID that relationship jesus.
Add to the fact that the whole team (3 older white men and a dog lol) knew about them and never cared that they were two women that fell in love, they always respected their relationship. And when Root was without Shaw and vice versa, the guys always supported them through the situation and helped them grieve like I cry???? So good.
I’ll shut up now but kudos to Jonathan Nolan and Greg Plageman for this. They might not have gotten everything right but the mayhem twins and Shoot’s dynamic? They truly created magic with both of those.
Now that we’ve actually seen the trailer for 2x18. And actually all remembered that Lena has an ex-boyfriend. And apparently they are actually going to make out to some degree (under mind control or no), let’s all remember that Rahul Kohli is an actual sweetheart, probably got on extremely well with Katie (because they’re both nerdy as fuck) and not send him hate via Twitter or Insta during the hiatus (or at any time at all really)? Because that’s rude. He’s nice. Leave him alone. Also remember he has gifted us pictures of actual cryptid Katie McGrath too.
Every time I see a teenager vomit out their history of trauma during shipping discourse as a trump card I want to shake the little frickers (and the big frickers that started this trend) because that is not safe and it is not healthy.
if you need more of a reason to skip the disney beauty and the beast but still wanted a live action version, WATCH the 2014 french version. y’kno everyone pissing themselves over the reveal of that one dress??? this movie had like 6
belle wore a different dress for basically every day she spent in the castle
and literally every. single. one. IS BREATHTAKING.
everyone’s whacking the ego of the disney movie for that hideous bedazzled party city rental and meanwhile in france 2014 even the men’s outfits were completely ostentatious and INCREDIBLE
and these are just the outfits!!!!!! the entire movie is so gorgeous i nearly passed out!!!! also it did all of this and more on a budget of $40 million USD. disney had over THREE TIMES THAT BUDGET and what did we get for it???? halloween express.
So I get so angry and frustrated with healthy (BOTH physically and mentally) people are lazy. I just can’t stand it because they’re wasting that perfectly good body to sit on their asses and do nothing. Or even have not healthy people do stuff for them.
It makes me so mad because I would kill to have a working body so I could do all the things I’m dying to do. I’d kill to be able to work out and go on adventures and travel the world…and just exist happily in no pain. I would kill for that. I think about it every day.
And then here are these certain people who could do all that and more. But they’re sitting on their asses doing nothing. Too lazy to even walk down the street for something or take the trash out or whatever. It kills me. I just want to scream at them.
I know this isn’t the nicest opinion but it’s something I feel. It’s something that makes me cry and rage. I just want a working body so badly and they’re wasting theirs.
Can you give us a hint on what your next theme for Inktober will be. Because your inktobers are INCREDIBLEEE
Thank you!! Posting this public ‘cause I wanna hear what you guys think~
I’ve actually had a couple ideas I’ve been tossing around. A lot of people want me to do DCtober, but my DC knowledge is pretty limited so I’m not sure. Hamilton, Star Wars, Marveltober Round 2 were also on the list. I also kinda want to do one that’s just Netflix themed, so I could do multiple shows like Voltron, Stranger Things, Marvel Defenders, maybe Trollhunters. And actually TAZtober has been growing on me…I’ve been bingeing The Adventure Zone and I LOVE IT, and designing everyone would be a nice challenge~
I don’t know, there’s still a lot of time til then. Thoughts? :)
