spend-a-month

anonymous asked:

remember in 3x08 how even kept referring to isak as beautiful and you could see isak didn't really believe him but nodded along with it like yeah alright ok whatever get this attention off me and then even spends the next 6 months filming isak, his face and his hands and how he cleans and walks and works out and their fingers laced together as they walk and lay in bed together and his mission was to show exactly how beautiful isak is to him, how beautiful their life is

(why must you hurt me like thisssss)

Even thinks Isak is the most beautiful person in the world. He thinks he’s the prettiest thing and he can’t help but smile whenever he looks at him because ugh, he’s the cutest. Even thinks Isak is the most beautiful thing in the universe, but he knows that Isak doesn’t know it, doesn’t agree with it. He knows that Isak is hard on himself and that he brushes it off as a joke when Even says it. He knows this. He knows him like the back of his hand at this point. So Even makes it his life mission to remind him every day. 

He starts by breaking their kisses and making Isak chase his lips and whine a bit before telling him that he’s beautiful. He then watches him melt and look away and feel embarrassed before brushing it off. So Even becomes more persistent and tells him he’s beautiful whenever he feels like it, whenever it feels right, which is all the time. He tells him when Isak’s brushing his teeth or eating pizza and making a mess or struggling to wake up in the morning or lying on top of his chest at night or studying in their apartment or playing Fifa (this one is great because Isak is usually winning and it catches him off guard and puts him at a disadvantage). He tells him when Isak is rolling his eyes at something Sara said, when he gives him shit for not doing laundry properly, when he ditches driving lessons for 3949834th time, when he gets pissed because someone gave them a look while they were holding hands in public. Even just tells him until Isak no longer brushes it off or looks away, until it becomes a little bit annoying, until Isak has to sigh loudly and say, “Gosh, fine! I get it. I’m beautiful. I’m hot. I’m great. Whatever. Okay!” And Even smiles to himself because yes. you are. 

Even then watches as Isak becomes more confident, more comfortable in his skin and less hard on himself. He watches as Isak just smiles right back when Even compliments him and no longer undermines himself and puts himself down. He watches as Isak’s self-esteem goes up and it makes his heart burst because yes, yes. 

Isak has a black eye now and Even presses kisses to his face and tells him he’s beautiful to which Isak rolls his eyes because really? really, now? Even gets serious because yes, really and Isak doesn’t even have it in him to argue with that. So they walk to school hand in hand until Even picks up a dandelion and tucks it behind his ear and tells him he’s pretty and smiles. Isak doesn’t even flinch, doesn’t look away, doesn’t brush it off. He smiles right back and laces their fingers together and it feels so good. Even looks at their hands and melts and makes a mental note to record their intertwined fingers for the video now. 

Isak doesn’t put himself down anymore now. He’s confident. He’s the ‘Genius at Nissen’. He thinks Even might have named a movie about him ‘The God’, and to be honest Even might have gone a little bit too far there. But yeah, no regrets. It was so worth it getting here. So so worth it. 

Even sits down at the park surrounded by their friends on Isak’s birthday and he wonders if he has seen the video yet. He wonders if Isak has found it yet, if he ever will. His eyes never leave him but he doesn’t sit too close. He wants to give Isak some time with his friends. He has him all to himself for the rest of the time after all. So Even sits and wonders. He wonders if Isak will get it. If he will get how much Even adores him. How much he loves him and thinks he’s the most beautiful thing in the world. He watches anxiously until he decides to distract himself by talking to Magnus. He waits and he waits and he waits, and the time shows 21:20 and, oh, haha, wouldn’t it be funny if-

21:21
Fy faen. Jeg elsker deg.

(goodbye. i’m sorry for this. i played myself)

In the John Byrne story 900 Miles, we were introduced to a waitress called Jenny, who he offers $1 million in exchange for her spending the month with him in Metropolis. She rejects the offer, on the basis that she’s married and that talking to people like that is really creepy.

Lex says that he’ll give her some time to mull it over, and after that he’ll drive away forever. She discusses the offer with her older colleagues, who bluntly tell her that she should take the money, because these kinds of deals don’t come around every day and she’ll regret it if she doesn’t.

Now increasingly in a moral quandary, Jenny calls her husband for reassurance… only to find out that he’s having an affair. Her mind now made up, Jenny decides to take Lex up on his offer.

Except…

Jenny disappeared from comics after this brief story, only to reappear in the early 2000s in Superman 163 during Lex’s attempt at running for office. Turns out mentally torturing random people for his own amusement does a number on people.

Jenny’s decision to just shoot Lex turns out to be just the thinng to get him the sympathy vote, which when combined with his “humanitarian“ schemes (such as lobbying Congress to block funding from going to an earthquake-ruined Gotham City so he could look like a hero by going in there to rebuild the place himself… in addition of steal a ton of real estate from dead or otherwise impoverished people) actually gets him into the White House.

truthofthejs replied to your post: Nonnie Submission…

He does Cons to get away from her and for the $$$. I really wish he wouldn’t paint her in such light. It unflattering to him and her. Makes him sound weak and her a controlling bitch.

True. They, especially Jared, claim to miss the wives so much and of course the fandom cries because it’s so sad. But, fandom seems to forget that their job isn’t to go to cons and they can stop attending them at any point. They could have moved their families to Vancouver and then lived in ATX during the summer months. But they choose to spend more than 9 months out the year away from them. There’s 101 options for them, but they choose to act like they’re sacrificing time with the wives to be at a con, when in reality they’d rather be at the cons then at home.

marictheirin replied to your post“i’m uninstalling”

nooooooooooo the worst i’ve had was like 18 on hollywood and it was hell

it went on for six rounds bc apparently escort maps just go on back and forth like that until the end of time until one team finally gets the upper hand & anyway i’m going to spend the next three months throwing tiny stones at jeff kaplan’s windows for putting me through that

please please please read this

some guy just came into our house and told us that our house is illegal. we made a room for our grandma in our garage and it only has one exit and a heater in her room, so we either have to kick her out (she’s 69 and is dependent on us to live), put her in a nursing home (which we don’t have money for and would never do), or pay 10,000+ dollars to move the heater, fix the air conditioning, put in a window, and move the attic door into the hallway. we spend $350 a MONTH on food for 6 people, plus a child who is allergic to almost everything, $735 on mortage, and the rest of that goes to bills and gas. we were going to get help from the state, but my grandma’s income puts us over the limit to receive that help. we either have to fix all that stuff or get fined, and as the fines pile up, our house will be taken from us, leaving us homeless.

i need your guys’ help. if you be willing to donate to help us repair our house, PLEASE let me know. we are setting up a gofundme ASAP, or if you have a paypal that would work too. i have an autistic 21 year old sister, a disabled 12 year old sister, a disabled dad, and elderly grandma. i don’t want them to lose their house, lose all they’ve ever known. please help. 

listen i am not at all emo about the fact that even’s biggest fear when it came to his relationship with isak was hurting him and not being good for him, and yet isak, after spending all these months by his side, thinks that he is actually the best thing in his life

Tater headcanon/ficlet

Tater’s parents divorced when he was very young, he doesn’t even remember a time they were together (although they had an amicable relationship post-divorce). His father was a hockey player, his mother was a figure skating champion.

He grew up in Russia with his father, but would spend a couple months every year visiting his mother in the USA. She retired from competition, but continued on to be a formidable youth figure skating coach. Her students were always successful.

When Tater visits his mom, he usually tags along to her early morning practices. Truthfully, he catches a bit more sleep in the stands most days, but he does really enjoy watching the progress her students have made on days mornings when he’s well-rested.

When he’s 11 or so, his mom takes on a tiny blond boy as her newest student, and Tater absolutely LOVES watching him practice. The kid is fast learner, and young Tater has been around the best and brightest of figure skating enough to know that this boy is going to be great.

Even when Tater returns home to Russia after his visit, he still asks his mom about how the little blond boy is doing with his lessons. The next time he visits, the improvement is already staggering. Now he eagerly attend his mom’s early morning lessons to see what this talented tiny boy can do.

Tater meets him once, but the funny little American boy talks very fast and Tater has no idea what he’s saying. He manages to say “Hi” and “good skate” and then stares, completely overwhelmed by this ball of blond energy shaking his hand and talking a mile a minute. Tater knows he’s saying something nice about his mom, because the boy is smiling a lot and looks over at her a couple times, but he knows very little English, so it mostly goes over his head. Still, it makes him smile, and he’s happy his mom has found such an enthusiastic student.

The years go by, and although Tater is sad to hear that his mom’s star pupil no longer figure skates, he gets busy with his hockey career. His mother has other talented students now, and she’s back in Russia. Life goes on. It’s been years since he’s thought of the tiny blond boy…

But one day, his teammate Jack starts (does he ever stop?) bragging about how wonderful his boyfriend is, and brings him along for a fun shinny game with the Falcs to show off Bitty’s skills and speed.

“Remember last time we did this, Bits?” Jack teases his boyfriend while the other guys set up the nets.

“The boys made me do a jump in my hockey skates for the school paper,” Bitty replies with a laugh.

Tater insists on seeing Jack’s little blond boyfriend do a jump, because he does miss watching figure skating like in his childhood. Bitty obliges, and the moment he lifts off the ice, Tater is filled with nostalgia. He knew something was familiar about this energetic young man.

“Hey, little B!” Tater skates over to Bitty immediately. “You’re so good. Always jumping so high, even in hockey skates.”

“Well, it would be better if I were in figure skates, and had a bit more practice…”

“Is okay. Long time since you started hockey, yes? When you were 15?”

Bitty doesn’t think too much of it, aside from being a bit of embarrassment that Jack has told his friends THAT much about him. “Yeah, I figure skated for years before that.”

“So many championships. Good skate.”

Bitty chuckles, remembering the time he met Katya’s quiet son who didn’t speak much English. That poor shy boy had only managed to tell him “good skate” too. He was hit with a wave of déja vu. This giant of a man was about 10,000 times more talkative than that boy, but now that Bitty thought about it, he did look a little familiar. “Um… Tater? This may sound strange, but…”

“So B, you know my mom Katya, yes?”

“OH. MY. GOD.”

“We should send her selfie now.”

Imagine - Zach breaks up with you

It has been exactly one month since you and Zach have broken up, and it was over something extremely stupid. It was over an argument that the two of you had. An argument over the fact that you and Bryce were “too friendly with each other”. Clearly Zach had gone mad. Because you would never cheat on him, and certainly not with Bryce Walker. That guy was a complete asshole and a pervert. If anything, he was always flirting with you, even though you were dating one of his best friends. But you had no intention what so ever to cheat on Zach with Bryce. You loved Zach, you truly did. And he loved you, but clearly not as much as you though because he couldn’t see how it was not you being “too friendly” with Bryce but the other way around.

It has been a painful month for you after the break up. You and Zach were perfect for each other, in your eyes and in the eyes of most of the students at Liberty high. You two were the “IT” couple. Always the talk of the school on how cute the two of you were together and how others wished that they had what you and Zach had. Why did things have to end between the two of you. You remember the night where everything went downhill, like it was yesterday…

“I’m not ‘all over Bryce’ Zach! That’s ridiculous!” You yell.

You and Zach were sitting in your living. Your parents were gone for the weekend on some business trip and Zach had promise to keep you company in the time being. So he had come over to your house so the two of you could cuddle and watch some movies. But things turned south pretty quickly…

“Sure you’re not.” Zach scoffs “You two are always flirting with each other! And right in front of me too!” He booms out.

“You know I’m really surprised that you haven’t left me for him yet, slut…” He breathes out the last word that you nearly missed what he said.

But it’s too late. You heard it. And you have never been more humiliated and furious in your life.

You look at him straight in the eyes, seething, and slap him. Hard. Right across his face.

“You know what!? Fuck you Zachary!” You spit out. “I fucking hate you! Get out!”

Zach scoffs and then says with malice, “Sure, I’ll leave, but know this, we’re fucking done (Y/N). I don’t even know why I went out with such a slut like you in the first place.” Then Zach walks out your door.

Keep reading

I’m tasting gray in my mouth again. The scariest part is that my hands are shaking again and I haven’t been able to sleep so well and it’s all so scary because it’s all so familiar.

You can spend months twirling around a sun in your head and the rain can still come. But the rain only ever comes if it pours, and God, I see gray again. It’s all over and it’s in my head again.

It is a tragedy and a thunderstorm and a hurricane all in one body and it is within me while I’m trying to claw my way out.

I drift, drenched. I drift, and it’s as if I am in the midst of pouring too.

Skewered

Summary: You’re a doctor for the avengers and when Bucky comes in with a hunk of metal in his side you find that it’s not his injury that’s making you sweat.

Warnings: Description of wounds/blood, Bucky being shameless

Note: I’m overwhelmed by the feedback I got on my last fic! You guys are great! So for my second fic I though I’d try out Bucky, again I’d love any constructive comments/criticism.


“Incoming! Incoming!” Odette, the surgical tech assigned to you rushes into the room.

“How many?” you ask, looking up from the table where you’ve laid out your tools.The tech flushes. You sigh. “What type of injuries?” 

“Uh-hm..” the tech stutters. You turn around so you can hide your eye roll. “Dr.Cho’s been called in..” Odette says. 

“Thank you, Odette” You say and head to the sink to scrub your hands again. You are a top scientist working for Fury, and besides having your degree in engineering you’re an MD who specializes in general surgery. So whenever the reinstated avengers go on mission you’re put on call, which basically consists of you waiting in the med bay in case anyone needs to be treated. Usually the injuries are minor, the team are unparalleled in what they do, and you just end up patching up deep scrapes or bullet grazes. Because of this and the fact you have daily work at the Avenger’s compound you’ve become very friendly with the team.

Your palms start to sweat. Today’s mission was supposed to be high risk and it’s a bad sign that Helen’s been called in. With you and one other doctor on call her and her technology are only called in for severe injuries. The door opens and a battered looking Steve supporting an even more battered looking Bucky walks in. Steve helps Bucky sit on the examination table.

“Any more injured?” You ask, pulling on gloves.

“Scrapes all around, except for Sam. He’s badly burned.” Steve blows air out of his mouth. You look at him, his brow is creased in worry. 

“How badly?” You look at Bucky, he has a chunk of what seems to be jagged metal in his side, about two inches thick, protruding several inches from his gear. It seems to be a simple extraction job.

“Badly. But Park’s seeing to him”  Samuel Park is the other doctor in the compound “Dr.Cho’s supposed to put him in the new Cradle.I hope she gets here soon.”

You walk to the table and pick up scissors and a knife. “Odette, You should go assist Dr.Park.” the tech nods, and scurries out the door. Steve goes to follow but looks back at Bucky.

“He’ll be fine, go,” You say, and with that Steve leaves.


You look at Bucky. His eyes are already trained on you. It reminds you of the time Steve came in for stitches. His forearm had been split open. Bucky leaned against the wall in the corner of the room, he remained silent but his eyes followed your every move. Even when you looked at him he didn’t break his gaze. You assumed he was just being protective over his best friend. Bucky hasn’t said more than two words to you in the time that you’ve known him. Even after he started opening up and joking around with the team he remained oddly silent around you. You assumed you annoyed him. He had no problem talking with the others and even flirting with the research techs. 

You step up to him and start cutting away his gear. ‘Oops probably should have asked before I started cutting off his clothes’.Heat flushes down your neck and you stop your actions.

“Sorry, do you mind  if I cut away your gear?” 

“ ‘S fine” he says, voice low. You look up and you swear there’s a hint of smile on his face. You nod and continue. He smells of something metallic mixed with blood and sweat and a hint of….cologne…? As you cut away more of his gear you catch more of it. You try not to think about it. He’s handsome, the type of handsome that makes people do a double take. You try to ignore the broadness of his shoulders as his gear falls away, leaving him in a damp wife-beater. 

“Ain’t even the first date and you’re already tryna get me outta my clothes.” He rasps, startling you. You stutter and stammer, before deciding not to respond.

“Okay,” you say, taking a breath. “I’m just going to  take a look at this” You step in between his legs and inspect the metal shard. It looks worse than what you first thought it was. The shard is about the size of your hand and sticks out right below his rib cage, there’s a possibility that it might have hit some organs. There’s no exit point. Your heart rate goes up. Can a super soldier die if his major organs fail before his body can repair them? 

You wheel over your table of tools. You wish you hadn’t sent away Odette.

“Can you lay down for me?,” You ask.

“Of course sugar.” He says, piercing you with his stare.

You take a deep breath, feeling flustered. Did this man want to die on the operating table?

You cut away his undershirt and prepare some local anesthesia.

“I’m going to try to numb the area, but I don’t know how well this will work. I’m sorry I don’t have anything else on hand.” You don’t even know if anesthesia would work on him.

“ ‘S alright, darling I’ve been through worse,” He says giving you a small smile. You feel your face fall as you think about how true his statement is. You numb him and take a deep breath.You move to start extracting the shard when his hand shoots out and grabs yours. You stop yourself from jumping.

“You know there is something that would make me feel better.” Bucky says, voice gravelly.

“Of course, what is it?” You place your tools back on the table. ‘Maybe a special painkiller?’ you think.

“A kiss,” Bucky’s face stretches into a wide smirk.

You splutter “James…!”

“Bucky.” he supplies, smirk not leaving his face.

“Bucky….I uh….I don’t think that would be necessary for minimizing your pain.”

Oh I beg to differ darlin’“ He says.

You clear your throat and start to grab your tools again. Bucky says your name, pleadingly.

“Come on, ya really gonna deny a dyin’ man his final wish.” You roll your eyes at his dramatic tone. You fix him with your gaze.

 “You’re not gonna die Bucky.” 

“Here I am,bleeding out on your table, and all I’m askin’ for is one little kiss. Just one little kiss, from the most beautiful woman I’ve ever seen.” He looks at you from the corner of his eye “….before she slices me open.”

You sigh. One thing you know about Bucky Barnes is that he’s stubborn as a bull. Before you can talk yourself out of it, you lean over and press a kiss to his cheek, his stubble prickling you in a not unpleasant way.

For a moment Bucky just looks at you, it seems like he’s crawling underneath your skin with that stare. Then he groans “Really sugar? Ya gonna try and cheat a man with a chunk of metal in his side?”

“I-I, uh” You stammer

“You really are heartless.” He sighs dramatically, closing his eyes.

You war with yourself for a split second, before leaning down and pressing a quick kiss to his lips. As you start to pull away Bucky’s hand comes up and stops you, and he deepens the kiss. His lips are surprisingly soft, his stubble scratches your face deliciously. Remembering the fact that he has a piece of metal in his side, you slowly withdraw. Bucky tugs on your lip with his teeth as you do so, which makes you have to turn around in order to regain your composure. When you turn back around, Bucky’s face is split in an ear to ear grin.

“Alright beautiful, cut me open, I can now die a happy man.”

You swallow, “Shut up James,” you snap, hating how your voice shakes. You pick up your tools and start to remove the metal. It comes out surprisingly smoothly, except for the last few inches. As you pull them free, Bucky starts to bleed. Way too much. The end of the shard is jagged. You try to contain the blood. But there’s just so much, you call for assistance and try to repair the damage.

By the time you finish you’re covered in blood. “Bucky, Bucky can you hear me?” You say, stepping close and touching his face, he looks drawn, pale.

“His pulse is faint. But it’s there.” Odette says. You jump, you forgot she had come in.

“Alright,” you sigh, blowing hair back from your forehead. “Guess we’ll wait.”


Bucky’s moved to a different hospital bed in another one of the rooms, and fitted with IVs. Steve understandably freaks out, with two close friends gravely injured within 24 hours it’s no wonder. Sam’s healed now, resting. You tell Steve to do the same and sit in a chair in Bucky’s room. The others wander in and out of the room.You know with his regenerative properties he’ll recover, but when six hours pass you can’t help but worry. ‘Why hasn’t he woken up by now?’ .


You blink your eyes open as a sliver of sunlight passes across your face. You squint, looking at the clock on the wall: 7 am. Damn. You finished patching Bucky up at about 4 pm last night. You had fallen asleep in his room. ‘I’m terrible at keeping watch’ you scold yourself. ‘What if he had worsened during the night?’ You look over at Bucky, only to find him watching you. You jump.

“Man you need to stop doing that.” Your voice is thick with sleep. You lick your dry lips, feeling self conscious. Standing you hear your joints cracking as you walk over.

“How can I help it when you’re always lookin’ so gorgeous?” He smirks.

“Shut up,” You say, pulling back the covers and inspecting his wound. It looks nearly healed. “How do you feel?” you murmur.

“Alright,” He says wincing slightly as you put pressure on his wound. He sits up, and you try to ignore the way the muscles in his chest and stomach flex. “I’d feel better if you’d let me buy you dinner, though” He looks up at you through his lashes. You click your tongue.

“You really are shameless,”

“Come on, it’s the least I can do after bleedin’ all over ya.” You look down at yourself, your scrubs are crusted in dried blood. You start replacing the dressing on his wound.

“You say that to all the girls who stitch you up?” You quip, avoiding his gaze.

“Nope. But then again I don’t spend six months building up the courage to ask those girls out either.” You look at him for a long while,saying nothing, and notice how red starts to tinge his ears and creep up his neck.

“Alright,” You answer finally giving him a smirk of your own.

Bucky lets out a huge breath, and chuckles  “Damn sugar, you really know how to make a man sweat, don’t ya?”

Hey 👏👏 you litha hoes 😜 time ⌚⌛⏰ to get it 📥 on 4️⃣ midcummer 🍑🍆💦 eve,, time to feast ✌👅 and dance 💃👣 on that 📅 may-pole 🌳🍆🌵and bonfire🔥 y'all have a good ☉summer solstice🌎 before⏳we have to spend 💱 another 6️⃣ months in the ☀darkness🌡 and 🙃 despair of 🌬❄⛇winter 😋

anonymous asked:

What would the Batfam give to Dick in his bday?

-Bruce would probably give him some money or something because Dick has gone through numerous phases and so his interests always change and there was that one year where he asked Bruce to buy him a $999.99 dollar friendship necklace set of two forks that said “father” and “son” on them (Bruce said no, Dick was very upset)

-Jason would get him like a rock or something he found in a dumpster and wrap it in duct tape and just watch Dick struggle to open it before seeing that it’s trash. And then Jason would give him a nice card or something like that

-Tim would get him a nice sweater because people always steal Dick’s sweaters (usually Tim, Damian, and Cass) but it would probably be one that Tim wanted and would later steal

-Steph would get him a gag gift like a Batman snuggie except Dick would genuinely love it and so the humorous effect is lost but she’s glad Dick likes it

-Damian would go all out on a gift and then act like it’s no biggie. He’d probably paint something really cool and then brush it off like he didn’t just spend a month and a half making it

-Cass would make him a really cute card and get him something he had wanted/needed that he had mentioned offhandedly in a conversation a while back

-Babs would get him clothes probably because lord knows this man child cannot dress himself in a way that doesn’t make him look like a colour and pattern blind person

-Duke gets him various Superman paraphernalia that Dick could decorate his room with (and it always makes Bruce super pissed off/secretly jealous)

-Alfred would make him all of his favourite dishes to take back to Blüdhaven so that he doesn’t get as homesick for Alfred’s cooking

A-Typical April

Originally posted by seekingakumas

Hey guys! It is almost time to celebrate A-typical April ^_^ A chance for all of us to give some love and appreciation to the less popular and celebrated things in the ML universe! There is so much about this show that is great other than just our adorable love square, and while we are still on Hiatus I thought it would be good to take some time and focus on that. ^_^  (This does not mean no Adrien or Marinette, just that the focus of all the works should be on something other than the Love Square.) 

For A-typical April I will be providing a series of both Weekly themes and Daily prompts that you can follow. (And will even have one of those fun visual calendars as well.

Now you CAN do art or fics or gifs or anything else following the weekly or daily prompts (and you certainly don’t have to do all of them!), OR you can show support by finding and kudos and reblogging other people’s works! Take a minute to look through the tags at some Tom and Sabine art, or share a link to a great Julerose or Ninoir fic. So many great non-lovesquare works get glossed over, and this is a wonderful chance to take the time and appreciate them! This show has so many amazing aspects to it that make it what it is. 

Anyways: For now Here is a list of the weekly themes! (Daily Calendar coming soon!)

Week 1: Friendship- There are so many amazing friendships on this show we could honestly spend a whole month just talking about that. 

Week 2: Love- As much as the Love square is great, let’s take some time to appreciate some of the other pairings in this fandom, there is no small list to chose from 

Week 3: Villains- This can include all the akumas, the troublesome adults lurking around (may or may not be plotting an Andre Bourgeois drabble for this week) or even some love for our resident butterfly enthusiast. After all without the villains, we wouldn’t have much of a plot now would we? 

Week 4: Daily Life- we all love the magic and the action scenes, but part of what is fun about this show is the regular day to day interactions between the characters. We get just as excited to see Marinette win a videogame contest as we do to see her face off against an actual giant robot!


That’s it for A-Typical April part 1! Part 2 Coming soon. (AKA probably tonight) 

If you want to participate please feel free to like and reblog this post- also use the following tag-        #MLAtypical  #Atypical April

That way people can track the event! 

The other big thing from last night was Percy’s thing with Scanlan and that’s also definitely worth talking about.

The main takeaway from it for me was that Percy has officially disowned Scanlan as part of his family. His reasons for this are twofold, I think. 

The first reason is what Percy more or less directly told Vex: Percy knows that Scanlan doesn’t actually believe the things he yelled at them. Scanlan was just saying things that were hurtful in order to burn bridges and leave the party. There were a few bits and pieces of true things buried in what Scanlan was yelling about, but most of it was simply aimed to hurt and Percy is much more aware of that than the rest of Vox Machina, who have mostly taken it at face value.

Scanlan hurt the rest of them to make himself feel better and Percy’s main associations with that are his abusers and himself - none of which are people Percy is inclined to forgive.

The second reason is what Percy has never said out loud and it’s that he can’t stand the idea of somebody abandoning their family. The idea of just leaving a group of people who need you is abhorrent to Percy. Why? Because he did that. He ran and he left Cass behind and he left Whitestone behind and he kept running for five years and he hates himself for it. Percy considers himself a massive coward for his actions back then and now Scanlan is repeating them - and let’s not forget that Scanlan wasn’t originally going to leave with Kaylie. He was just going to leave everyone behind and Percy is Not Impressed by Scanlan copying the thing that is the source of Percy’s deepest self-loathing.

As for Percy’s actions, Percy said he wanted his things back, but the two things he mentioned were the Gatestone and the earring of whispers, neither of which are inherently Percy’s. They are, however, inherently Vox Machina’s. The Gatestones and the earrings were never intended for specific people but rather were for group usage. As far as Percy is concerned, if Scanlan doesn’t want to be part of the group anymore then he shouldn’t have group property - especially property they need. We saw how obnoxious it was that Tary didn’t have an earring and the Gatestones are hugely useful items. I don’t believe Percy actually knew Vex gave one to Scanlan (he was told Scanlan had it later but he had already left the room when Vex convinced Scanlan to take one of the stones) and he probably assumed Scanlan had it before and just left with it.

Now Scanlan actually does have a piece of property that is definitely Percy’s by rights - Scanlan still has one of the guns they confiscated on Glintshore and 15 rounds of ammunition. Percy is not aware that Scanlan has this and if he found out, his reaction would be pretty bad and Scanlan is well aware of that which is why he’s been hiding it from Percy since he took it.

Here’s the biggest problem with all of it:

Despite what Percy says and what he wants to feel, and despite the fact that he has bitterly crossed Scanlan off his family tree - he still cares.

Percy conned Keyleth out of the Scrying Eye by pretending to be a pervert and he did it because he cared where Scanlan was and how he was doing, and he knew the rest of the party wouldn’t agree to scry on him. But Percy is always willing to play the bad guy for everyone’s benefit and you can’t tell me Vex wasn’t relieved to hear Scanlan was fine when Percy told her. The whole party wants to know but they know it’d be intruding to check, so Percy checked for them.

The spy is the same thing. Percy doesn’t think for even half a second that Scanlan is going to do anything that’s worth his time to know about. He’s just traveling, having stilted conversations with his daughter, and entertaining farmers. Percy sent a spy so that if Scanlan gets into some shit or ends up dead, VM will know about it ASAP and they can get to the location to do something about it. That’s pretty much it. That spy is either going to be incredibly entertained or insanely bored for the next year.

Or, y’know, Kaylie or Scanlan will notice said spy and send him back home with a rudely worded message and a kick in the ass, but Scanlan’s perception is trash so that’s probably gonna be on Kaylie to catch him.

At any rate, the long and the short of it is that nobody takes betrayal quite as poorly as Percival de Rolo, nobody holds a grudge as stubbornly, and nobody loves their family quite as fiercely and as violently. And that’s why I can’t wait for Scanlan to come back to the group in a year’s time and for Percy to spend three months hissing and snarling at him like a scorned cat.

april im so stressed and ik i shouldnt be after that soulmate shit they gave us but... bellamy thinks clarke is dead. and its been 6 YEARS so don't you think he moved on? and probably w raven bc they showed us them having a 'connection' and idk. im just sad about this whole thing. i hate to be negative but i had hope abt them until the end and i cant spend 9 months feeling like this :(

No, I don’t think Bellamy has truly moved on and I think we’ll see that in their reunion. Clarke thinks Bellamy is dead and she hasn’t moved on and a sexual relationship, or indeed another relationship period in no way interferes with the possibility of Bellarke. 

I think a lot of people see the “You with me?”/”Always.” conversation as a setup for potential Br/ven but like…that conversation was about….Clarke. It makes no sense to pick and choose which parts of a conversation you are going to consider when dissecting it for evidence:

Raven: “You think we can do this without her (Clarke)?”

Bellamy: “If we don’t, she (Clarke) died in vain and I’m not going to let that happen.” (He will not let Clarke’s sacrifice be for nothing or be forgotten, he is going to ensure that the 7 of them on the Ring survive because Clarke gave her life for them.)

We see Raven’s face, she is crying. She is crying because she thinks her friend is dead. She is crying because she thinks her friend has died sacrificing her life for them. This is not a romantic moment. 

Bellamy: “You with me?” (Considering Bellamy had the lines directly before this, it stands to reason he’s asking Raven if she’s with him in ensuring that Clarke’s legacy continues.)

Raven: “Always.” (Raven has is promising to work towards keeping Clarke alive through them here.)

Bellamy and Raven are grieving right now neither of them are thinking about anything but Clarke here and to take a moment that is so clearly about grief and turn it into a romantic segue isn’t cool. If Bellamy and Raven are going to be a thing at some point, it will happen over the course of next Season, but I seriously doubt it. 

And the ending shot?

There’s literally a person sized space between them, because Clarke has always been there:

You can also compare this to how closely Bellamy and Clarke stand next to one another:

And then compare that to how close Bellamy and Raven typically stand next to one another:

Bellamy, Raven and Clarke are a team, especially last Season, when there was no real conflict between Bellamy and Clarke so they used Raven to provide it. 

Let’s also not forget that in 4x12, the episode before this, Bellamy was literally willing to leave Raven to die, alone on Science Island, with no regrets, but when he realized that they left Clarke to die, all alone, on Earth, his response was:

“I left her. I left her and we die, anyway.”

Clarke is Bellamy’s person. And when he realizes that she’s alive…oh boy.
