“You tell me Y/N, do you want this?” he
brushes his thumb over your cheek “Do you want to kiss me?”
you could ever give your response to him, reality hits the shameless boy like a
train. What was he thinking when he asked you such a question? His sudden
tendency to take your feelings for granted by working his moves on you, wasn’t
how he ever wanted it to be. He was curious and quite greedy about having the
chance to win your first kiss. Was it still like a competition for him? Was he
toying with you or was he being serious?
Jungkook was your best friend and his
intentions were never ill to begin with. You knew from day one, when he held
your hand and decided to be your friend back then in kindergarten, that he was
anything but harmful. You were well aware of the fact that he could be trusted,
and all these years of friendship proved that he was a keeper. Maybe you could
trust him? But what would it change? Only jungkook had the answers and
decisions to take in this very moment, yet he suddenly stepped away from you
am I doing, right now? Jungkook would suddenly ask
himself as he eyed your lips up-close for the first time in his life
“Kong is an icon of motion pictures, he’s an icon of the cinema, he’s been present in people’s imaginations since 1933, certainly in the minds of audiences and the people who love movies and I think Kong represents so many things. He is the mystery of the unknown and he’s a terrifying force of nature who is also a sentient being with an intelligence we don’t understand, and I think we’re captivated by that…we’re captivated by Kong’s power and majesty.” [x}
Would Caleb, Adam, Chloe and Mark be people to celebrate Pride? Would they go to Pride marches?
Mark celebrated Pride in college and would have continued to do so had he not been, you know, kidnapped and all. He’ll probably eventually get back into it, but he’s not quite up to it yet, I think.
Adam definitely would, though he hasn’t yet. He’s been out to his parents for a while and, like Caleb said, most of the school knew Adam was gay, but Adam hasn’t really had a community of LGBT+ friends until Caleb and Chloe came into his life (he didn’t really have any friends tbh). Now that he has people to celebrate with, he’d love to go to a march or a community event.
But the tricky thing with Chloe and Caleb is that neither of them love crowds, for obvious ability-related reasons. Caleb could potentially have a lot of fun at a Pride march - all that joy and excitement in the crowd - but there’s so many unknown factors. Same thing with Chloe - the rainbow spectrum of thoughts would probably be a fun time - but any extended period of time in large groups really wears her out.
If they celebrate this year (remember it’s still November 2016 in the podcast), they’ll probably do a small dinner/movie night with just the group.
After the mission, Genji was more than eager to come to face with the doctor and her promise at her lab. Along the way, perhaps he may find that there is more behind his eagerness than what meets the eye.
The mission finished far earlier than anyone would have expected. Granted, it was supposed to be a short surveillance and local check-in operation at the request of the nearby city’s council due to reports of strange objects being seen in the outskirts. There seemed to be a hurry to finish it, though none of the members exactly realized the fact until they looked at the mission time once they returned. Each phase finished earlier than the previous but that was always the case. When all of these phases finished early, however, that definitely seemed strange.
Well, it seemed quite quick and easy for everyone with only a single exception. For Genji, the mission still felt much too long. Even with his mind preoccupied and his feet constantly moving to the next location, he couldn’t help but think of the young doctor’s words. Even as he quickly secured the site of the object and confirmed that it was nothing dangerous (seeing as it was his job considering his cyborg parts protecting him more than others). It wasn’t as if he was skipping proper procedures of course, actually if anything he stuck to it more strictly than ever. No one could blame him for anything.
Even if they realized that he was the reason for their swift return, it was not as if they could say anything to him about it. The strange eagerness that starkly contrasted his personality before this point was definitely unexpected, and as such, no one suspected that it was his fault.
Well, they did notice the slight hurry in his pace as he left. He always promptly left, despite seeming to have nothing else that really required his attention. That was what they came to accept of him. As such, it surprised them to see him leave in that state. For the first time, they saw something in his eyes and steps that they had never seen before.
As soon as the words had passed his lips, Percival knew he should never have asked, because truthfully he didn’t want to know the answer. He knew what he hoped to hear–that MACUSA had been looking for him all along, that they had spotted the imposter immediately–and he knew that reality and fantasy would not meet together as friends.
So, Grindelwald had taken over his body, his life, and no one had noticed. For all the time Percival spent at the office, he never made a strong connection with any of his co-workers. He had never put as much stock in personal relationships as he had his career, and he had never regretted that decision more than in that moment.
“I see,” Percival said, his voice quiet. He couldn’t meet Tim’s gaze, feeling ashamed of himself for countless reasons. There were so many things he had done wrong in the six months Grindelwald had kept him prisoner in some unknown dungeon. So many things he had done wrong over the course of his entire life.
Running a hand through his unkempt hair, Percival sat down hard on the stone flagon floor. He had so many more questions he knew he shouldn’t ask, but it was inevitable that he would eventually ask Tim now that they were both trapped together. Why not get it over with?
“How–how did you figure out that it wasn’t me? That it was Grindelwald?” Percival hated how weak his voice sounded, how desperate he was for information that he couldn’t manage to hold himself together.
To any of my stressed/anxious followers (or anyone who just likes the ocean/animals and the beautiful things in it) ‘Moving Art: Underwater’ is on Netflix and it’s super calming and beautiful to watch. So if you need something to comfort you or pull you out of the spot you’re in for a bit it might help. I just watched it and was in bliss U u U. I know a lot of you have a lot going on so hopefully this can help, if even just a bit.
“Leave me alone.” She tells you in a voice that has swallowed poison and destiny alike, the heat of which has burnt her tongue and lips to a shade of red that is somewhat lost between cherries and blood. Both leave a lingering, memorable taste. The source is up to the imagination, the preference between iron and sugar; war and sweetness. If you were to ask her, she’d merely shrug her shoulders. The answer is one or the other, maybe both, perhaps (on a particularly bad day) neither. Consensus states that perhaps, you should refrain from asking. It’s better for everyone’s health.
Anneliese, who has been simply Dahlheim for a long while, sits nestled into a high backed chair, wooden arms carved by a long dead hand. One might wonder if she’s capable of rising from it. Such a thing is unknown. Anneliese has been so many things in the past, names with different syllables and meanings and consistencies on the tongue. Dahlheim is a longer standing thing, what she’s been for ages, and will continue to be. Such a name is something she will clutch in her thin hands until the world takes her breath for good.
When you don’t leave as requested, Anneliese stirs in her chair, like a wraith taking possession of a body that just barely lives. Ghost on ghost, it seems.
She is not angry, merely full. Full of emotion and existence that builds up and puts pressure on her ribs, makes her throat gum up with the weight of being alive. The world insists she live and die, and frankly, in such a case, one has a hard time knowing what they’re supposed to do with themselves. So, she settles for a little of both, a living, breathing creature fluttering inside a dying shell, unable to rot away and let the bird straining against her ribs fly free.
One would not recognize her, upon close inspection. In body at least, she is something, curls cut improperly and eyes more grey than the deep blue they used to be once upon a time. Things did change in such a way, and she wondered idly if she was wasting away into something odd. Did that really matter, though? Once again, she barked at you to leave her, teeth clacking together and eyes flashing.
It was in that moment, that you wondered just what she had become.
If you were to ask, she would not be able, neither willing nor capable of telling you.
How old are Lexa and Clarke do you think? #French-girl Romane
HI!! Short Answer: Clarke is 18 and Lexa is probably 20-22.
Now for more rambling information that you don’t need lol:
We know that Clarke was younger than 18 when she was sent to the ground:
(1x01) Clarke: No. No. It’s not my time. I don’t turn 18 for another month.
We know that season 1 lasted a period of 29 days and that season 2 lasted a period of 23 days. Which equals 52 days total that the delinquents were on the ground from the beginning of season 1 to the end of season 2. The exact date for the end of season 2 is November 3rd, 2149. So, Clarke has turned 18 while she has been on the ground. Her birthday is probably in mid September to mid October. Now with the time jump, it will be around the beginning of February 2150 when the show picks up. Just to give everyone a timeline. (x)
Now for Lexa, we know that she is a few years older than Clarke and that she became ‘Heda’ when she was 16. So, with just that info we know that she is 1) older than Clarke (who is 18) by a few years (a few= more than two), 2) has been in command for quite some time. Now, reading Jason’s tweet about this I’m not sure if he was talking about if she became the Leader of Trikru when she was 16 or if she became the Leader of the Coalition when she was 16. All the person asked was: “at what age did Lexa become heda?“
I automatically thought that he was talking about Lexa becoming the Leader of Trikru when she was 16 and became the Leader of the Coalition a few years after that. There are so many things unknown about Lexa or the ascension process and the timeline at which the death of the old commander happens and when a new one is found. Who rules over the Clan between the death and discovery? Any who, here are some previously mentioned things about Lexa or her ascension:
So, at what age DID Lexa pass this test? ‘Child’ makes me think that she was young probably 10-14 years old. However, after the commander spirit is found in her does she automatically take command? Does ‘the old guard’ or others help her while she is still learning how to command? Is passing the test and ascending two different things? Too much is unknown. Hopefully all will be revealed in season 3. (Additionally, I have headcanoned that Lexa became Anya’s second when she was around 7 and Anya was 16 or 17. Making Anya around 30 yrs old when she meet Clarke.)
Getting back to the “Did she become the Leader of Trikru when she was 16 OR the Leader of the Coalition when she was 16?” To me, this is all dependent on how long ago Costia was killed. We know that Lexa was the Leader of Trikru before she became the Leader of the Coalition – the Coalition was Lexa’s idea. We know that the Ice Nation captured Costia and tortured her because the Ice Nation was at war with the Trikru – Indra in 2x12: “Ice Nation,
Last time, they stepped foot here, we were at war with each other.” So, it is possible that Lexa became Leader of Trikru when she was 13-14 and was dating Costia and then Costia was killed when she was 15-16, then she proposed the idea for the Coalition when she was 16 and became the the Coalition Commander when she was 16.
However, that would mean that the Coalition has been standing 6+ years and that Costia has been dead for 6 years.
But, when Lexa was talking about Costia it seemed like it was a more recent wound than happening 6+ years ago. I have headcanoned that it was 2-3 years ago that Costia was killed by the Ice Nation. Therefore, the Coalition is quite new and has only been formed for 1-2 years before the Sky People came. That is why Gustus was so worried about the Sky People joining the Coalition, because they had just recently found peace and was afraid that they were going to jeopardize that. So, going off that headcanon (that Lexa became the Heda of Trikru when she was 16 and NOT the Coalition Commander when she was 16) I think that Costia was killed when she was 18 or 19 then it took around 1 year to form the Coalition (to get everyone on the same page about things, decide who is going to rule over the Coalition, etc.) then Lexa became the Leader of the Coalition and has been ruling for 1-2 years when she meets Clarke. Making her the leader of her own Clan for 5-6 years and ALSO being the Coalition Commander for 1-2 of those 5-6 years.
On the other hand, we could combine these two theories….it might be possible that Lexa created the Coalition between the 11 Clans when she was 16. At this point in time she was still at war with the Ice Nation and that is when they killed Costia. After that, she offered the Ice Nation a seat on the Coalition. The below tweet would be interpreted as there was ALREADY an Alliance between the 11 Clans and then Lexa brought the Ice Nation into the Coalition after Costia was killed. Therefore, she became the Leader of Trikru when she was quite young (12-14) then she formed the Coalition between the 11 clans when she was 16 – the Ice Nation was not part of this Alliance and was still at war with the Trikru – Costia was taken by the Ice Nation when Lexa was 18-19 and killed. This is when Lexa proposed to the Ice Nation to enter into the Alliance. Therefore, there has only been TRUE PEACE between all grounders for 1-2 years after Lexa brought the Ice Nation into the Alliance.
Kudos to you if you were able to follow my thought process through this entire thing! lol.
It is well aware that TODAY, March 8th is International Women’s day! Where for this day, women from today, tomorrow, and from yesterday be recognized all over for their endless attributions for change, rather it be in the United States who fought for women’s right to vote and continue to fight for so many things! Or to those in small, unknown nations like Eritrea who contributed much of their efforts to bring Independence to Eritrea. And in Eritrea, today is H U G E day! During Eritrea’s 30 year war for Independence with Ethiopia, 30% of the fighter in the EPLF (Eritrean People Liberation Front) were made of up women! Which is a sacrifice these women were willing to make to see Eritrea as an Independent nation! 23 years later, and Eritrea is making great changes in terms women now taking more leadership roles, owning businesses, becoming doctors, and so much more. Of course, Eritrea’s perspective of women through cultural means may not go with the current times, but these amazing women will and can conquer it all! So to not only the phenomenal women of my family like my mother who also fought in the war, but to everyone else is mother, aunt, cousin, grandmother, ETC you inspiring women are forever grateful to us. And for this who did not live to see as a free nation, may you shine down on us and continue to watch us prosper in achieving the goals and dreams you had for us.
AGAIN, Happy International Women’s Day to not only the women of Eritrea, but to women all over the world who are still fighting their way to the top!
The inner turmoil and strife that reaches all great fandoms is upon us, rolling in like a tidal wave and the only thing we can do is weather the storm with our metas and analyses and fanfics. Draping them around us like a shield as we walk into battle.
We have fought antis, but today this battle is one that has been fought for millenia:
For those of you who are new to fandom, they are always riddled with speculation and theory, whether headcanon or rooted in the signs we read from the story. There is always a honeymoon period, where the grass is green and lush, but at some point - no telling how soon - there comes the dissenters. Heretics.
Those who go against the grain of the current theory, whether in a combative or neutral way - perhaps they have their reasons, perhaps it’s just whimsy - but there will always be a few. And those few will lead factions, splitting the fandom into certain groups.
Each faction will carry a different torch (or theory) - Kylo redeemed (The Redemptionists), Kylo the eternal villain (the Dark Siders), the ‘I just want an interesting story’ - True Neutrals, Lore Hounds (followers of the Gospel of Canon), Dark!Rey (the Vegeances), Imperial Scum, etc.
And they will live in harmony for awhile, but then..the war comes. Because war is inevitable.
No fandom can escape it. It is inevitable, like the tide.
The only question is how you fight it?
Will it be with shade, open aggression, facts, derision, sarcasm, harassment?
Only one of these is an acceptable tactic in any fandom division: facts.
And here is where a few stand above the fray, miraculously unscathed, they are :
And the divergent will remind all of us of our one, united dream:
How will it happen? Will it be done well, poorly, confusingly? Will there be eternal hate, will Kylo have a child? Will he be redeemed or will he pull Rey to the dark, or will they be grey together? What does Finn have to do with all of this? Why is he involved in this trio of characters? Why does Pablo keep answering questions on twitter - why do we keep drooling over them? Why does JJ keep having to remove his foot from his mouth? Will Daisy keep liking Reylo things on instagram? Will Adam ever stop being fucking adorable? Will he ever get social media - should he? What are the other possible SNL skits we could have them do? What will Bloodlines teach us? Trials of Tatooine? Lego Star Wars? How will Reylo unfold into canon on our screen?
These are questions no one can possibly answer right now without violating severe NDAs.
No one has any right to shade, insult, or otherwise put down another Reylo fan for what they choose to believe or see.
There will always be fandom turmoil when there are a great many unknown things - and none more so, perhaps, than in movie fandoms with long stretches in between.
Please, remember one thing about fandom life and it will make you eternally happy:
Focus on what you love, what you enjoy - if that’s civil debate, then debate - if that’s only reading and following people who believe in a certain Reylo-path, then do that. But always focus on what you love, do not engage in petty arguments or shade or derision.
There will be bastions of good in every fandom, find yours.
The great war is upon us, fandom. We must choose now whether we will weather it with grace or leave it in tatters on the floor.
There may come a day when the fandom of Reylo falls
