SUPER SPOILERS OF VOL.2!!!! YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!!!

Part One

“What are you doing! I told you to go!” Peter yelled at you as you clamped your hands on his making the final bit of celestial light vanish.

“And I’ve always told you.” You held onto his arms as the world around them shook, “There isn’t world that can exist where Outlaw Star lives and Star Lord doesn’t.”

He stared into your eyes, “Y/N…”

You teared up a little throwing your arms around his neck, “You’re not alone. You have never been alone.”

He held you tightly burying his face into our neck. The heat from the explosions got closer with every second, “Y/N…I…”

“Save it…I know.” You told him shutting your eyes letting your fingers find his mop. You were ready for the void. You were right where you needed to be.

You felt a hard impact on your side and felt yourself being lifted off the ground. Your eyes opened looking at Peter who was staring at Yondu. Peter adjusted his grip on you as Yondu reached out balancing out the group.

You stared at Yondu as he looked at Peter, “He may have been your father, but wasn’t your daddy.”

He looked to you pride in his eyes, “I’m sorry I didn’t do any of it right.”

“Yondu…” You felt your air suit activate as he pressed a spare to Peter’s chest.

“What?” Peter stared at him as Yondu just smiled at him that toothy grin when he’d done something right. The one he always gave Peter when he wasn’t looking.

“Yondu stop…you have to put on a suit…” You looked up as he only pushed the rocket further past the atmosphere.

“Yondu…what are you doing?” Peter looked at him fear and realization starting to sink in, “Yondu you can’t!”

“Yondu!” You stared at him tears coming to your eyes as Peter started to claw at his suit to give to Yondu. Your heart was breaking as he screamed holding onto his father.

Yondu only got him to stop by putting his hands on his face. His skin started to freeze from the exposure as he reached over for you. You moved closer toward the direction he wanted putting your face next to Peter’s.

The corners of his mouth moved up just slight before his hands started to move away from their faces. Peter started to shake his head reaching for him denying what was happening.

“Peter…” You whispered tears streaming down your face. You grabbed his arm to keep with him, “Pe-peter he’s gone.”

“No!” He looked at you, “No, no he can’t…he just…he…”

“Peter…” You let out a sob wrapping your arms around him. He kept denying it until he finally relented shaking in your grasp. Nothing was going to make this better now…just time.

The funeral had turned out to be beautiful. Everything Yondu had deserved and more. A true Ravager funeral.

Gamorra came to you afterwards as you prepared one of the small vessels for take of, “How are you doing?”

You looked at her seeing some sincerity, but the underlying inquiry was there. She wanted to know how deep your relationship was with Peter. You wanted to mourn your father.

“I’m managing.” You told her packing a bag with the supplies you found about the ship.

“Good.” She nodded picking up a ration pack handing it to you, “Do you need help with anything?”

You let out a sigh, “I…just lost my second father…I’m gonna need time, and the ship is in good shape, and I found everything I need to get to my secondary ship in Xandar.”

“I see…you have a strong plan.” She swallowed crossing her arms.

You stopped looking at her, “Gamorra, I’m only going to say this once, so listen.”

She tensed up as you stepped toward her keeping your voice hushed, “He really cares for you…and you’ve acknowledge it back. He’s going to do everything he can and more to take care of you. It won’t seem like it sometimes…his mind works differently and in irritating ways, but he will always mean well. You’ll see it in his eyes. They way they soften apologetically as your face will harden with anger.”

You watched her lick her lips uncomfortably as you went on, “And he will give you 150% every time for everything. No matter how big or how small. So treat him right. Give him at least 100%. Understand how his mind works…let him in…and don’t break his heart or so help me…”

She watched you look away from her clearing your throat, “I won’t intentionally hurt him.”

You look back at her, “And I won’t come between you two, no matter how much it hurts. You will always be able to count on me.”

Gamorra smiled a little and nodded looking at the ship, “I can make an adjustment to the burners with Rockets help. Should get you a few extra jumps.”

“That would be nice, thanks.” You took in a deep breath as she stepped inside. You followed her in not seeing Peter peek around the hall corner.

His mouth was parted slightly as he watched disappear into the ship. You couldn’t see the conflicting expression on his mourning face. You didn’t see his hands flexing nervously at his sides.

He never knew you thought about him in such an intense way. He knew he had thought about it…dwelled on it in fact for years. He just never acted on it.

He ducked back down the hall feeling his heart beating against his chest wildly, “Shit…”

Sorry for all the langst if ya don't like it buttttt..

SPOILERS AHEAD

YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED

Can we just talk about the comic for a second? I would first like to pull into attention this panel

here they are talking about the sphynx’s riddle. Its a little hard to see, but that is in fact Lance talking. he mentions how his heart has been broken before but is now stronger. First of all, I thought like, holy quiznak thats out of character?? but maybe its not, maybe he is for once being real? I dont know, I might be over thinking this one, but its okay becuase overthinking is fun. To me it also sounds like maybe a cry for help, given the probable context of the next one.

okay, when I read this page, my entire being pretty much died. like, okay. Its pretty damn obvious here, not only is the sphynx calling lance out for being pathetic, but Lance doesn’t disagree. Again, something that is pretty out of character for this kid, given how he acted when they were rescuing the princess from earlier. This guy knows what goes on in Lance’s head, and after saying that, Lance couldn’t argue because he views himself as pathetic as well. this rounds back to season two when they are trying to get Slav out of prison, when he talks about being a seventh wheel.

I guess what I’m trying to get at is, Lance obviously has something going on. Not only is he homesick, but he can also feel himself being pushed aside, like he kinda was in season two, and kinda in general. and none of that helps with the self doubt and possibly even hate that he already has for himself. He is very good at not letting it show through, but I honestly think there are some serious mental issues happening with him. And, seeing as though this show isn’t afraid of making Shiro’s PTSD clear, I’m pretty sure that Lance’s insecurities are much much more than just that. That they are so bad that he feels he has to pretend to be someone else just to seem happy. 


But I could be completely wrong, he could simply be thinking about the thousands of hours hes probably wasted  watching cat videos. I guess we will find out though, huh? Just some food for thought, good night everyone!

(on a lighter note, I think o see some Klance goin on in the first pic too~)

7 Thoughts about Get Out

The film Get Out written, directed and produced by Jordan Peele (Key & Peele) debuted on February 24, 2017. I recall discovering the preview for the film featuring Daniel Kaluuya (Skins), Allison Williams (Girls), and veteran actors, Catherine Keener, Bradley Whitford and Stephen Root, while scrolling through my Facebook timeline at the end of last year and became determined to see it during opening weekend. Below, I will list seven thoughts I have in regards to the film. For those who have not seen the film, there will be spoilers in this post. You have been warned…

  1. Was the cop an asshole for asking Chris (Daniel Kaluuya) to produce his driver’s license? Or was the cop aware of the fact black men were disappearing in the area and perhaps he suspected Rose (Allison Williams) had something to do with it. As viewers we are inclined to see the cop as a racist because of our country’s problematic relationship between law enforcement and black men. However, a part of me wonders if the officer had good intentions…
  2. When Chris and Rose relay the story of how they struck and killed a deer on their way to the Armitage estate, Dean Armitage (Bradley Whitford) launches into a seemingly-benign monologue about how the area is overpopulated with deer and how the deer are taking over and by Chris and Rose killing a deer it was actually a good thing because it was one less deer in the area. As the movie progresses, you learn this monologue is more of a commentary on how Dean views black people. Black people are nothing but animals invading his area. Perhaps this is why whenever an unarmed black man is killed at the hands of the police there is an immediate campaign to dehumanize the victim. If you paint the victim as a animal, you can somewhat justify the eradicating of his or her existence. One less deer…
  3. Being a resident of the American South, cotton fields are EVERYWHERE. Cotton is very emblematic of American slavery. When Chris is held captive in the basement of the Armitage estate, it is cotton that actually frees him. Shoving the cotton from inside the chair he is tied to into his ears is actually how he manages to stay lucid in order to escape. Cotton, once a symbol of oppression, becomes the source of a black man’s freedom.
  4. When Chris rushes upstairs to check his phone, each of the guests stop what they are doing to watch him. What was that about? If some can explain why they reacted the way they did, please comment below.
  5. Walter’s death functions in two ways, one of which might actually protect Chris in the long run. A) Even with all of the Armitages dead, Walter will never be able to have a normal life because the real Walter is actually in the sunken place while the white brain that resides in his body is the dominant personality. B) Dean, Missy (Catherine Keener) and Jeremy (Caleb Landry Jones) Armitage are dispatched by Chris but their bodies will be destroyed by the fire that engulfed the estate. Rose is shot by Walter who then turns the gun on himself. Perhaps Walter, the real Walter, killed himself as a way for Chris to not be implicated in all of the murders.
  6. What will become of Logan aka Andre Hayworth? Logan was the man we saw being kidnapped at the start of the film and we later learn his brain has been replaced with the brain of a party guest’s husband. Without the Armitages around, what will happen to Logan?
  7. What will become of Chris? When the film ended, the audience, including myself, erupted in applause and cheers. Even though we are given the best possible ending, a part of me wonders what will happen to Chris. Chris is irreparably psychology broken and even though he was able to finally confront the circumstances surrounding his mother’s death, he now has to spend the rest of his life dealing with the nightmare the Armitages inflicted on him. What if the authorities come to him, asking him about Rose and her family? Will they believe him? Chris’s best friend Rod (Lil Rel Howery) believes him but we all know the weight of a black man’s words, especially when young, white women are involved.

If you have not seen Get Out, go buy a ticket now! I cannot recommend it enough. Also, if you have any thoughts or comments in regards to my above thoughts, fill free to comment.

Dean & Castiel - When I See You Again


Spoiler warnings season 12 finale and earlier episodes have been used <3

Steven Universe Theory: White Diamond Is The Enemy

SPOILER ALERT: THIS THEORY CONTAINS SO MANY SPOILERS. You have been warned!

As of January 6th, 2017, we have been officially introduced to three diamonds: Yellow, Blue and Pink. But what about White?

Personally, the most interesting theorizing for me has been originating from the Pyramid Temple, and here’s why.

First of all I want to point out something that no one has before: The Pyramid Temple is the first place we see the Diamond Authority symbol. That’s right. The new symbol. The symbol made after the shattering of Pink Diamond. The symbol that everyone believed made its debut in ‘Jail Break,’ was completely visible in season one, episode eight. Don’t believe me?

The symbol is first seen to the far left as the gems are entering the temple. It is surrounded by what looks to be a sun, and rays of light. Seem familiar? A certain light with a song of some sort? That’s right. The corruption song, revealed to us in both Lapis’ backstory and Centi’s drawings.

The second time the symbol is more clearly visible, after Steven has ‘touched the magical thing he is definitely always never supposed to’ and the gems land in the center of the temple.

(Do I have your attention yet?) What this means is that this temple was created after the war…at least, after the shattering of Pink Diamond, and the re-creation of the Diamond Authority symbol. What exactly is the purpose of this temple? I’ll get to that in another theory.

I will be referencing SliceofOtaku’s ‘Source of Corruption’ theory…so feel free to go check it out!

After the gems enter the temple, before Steven messes with the magical thing, we are introduced to another mural, one that has been used in many theories thus far.

The mural introduces us to four main beings, three being what is assumed to be diamonds, and the last, Rose Quartz. Just barely out of sight, we can see the sun and the moon on opposite ends of the mural, so we can assume that the mural is meant to be read, or translated in a counterclockwise manner. We are also introduced to an unbelievable amount of hands, and small black figures that we assume represent humans, or crystal gems. Again, we’ll get back to a lot more information on this mural in another theory. The main focus is the center mural, the one with Rose Quartz.

Many have speculated that this mural is depicting Rose Quartz fighting against a Diamond. Others have speculated that this is Lapis Lazuli because of the wave like structure beneath her, but that theory has essentially been proven wrong, and it is safe to say that this is in fact a Diamond. But which Diamond?

Many theorized that this was Yellow Diamond or Blue Diamond, because of the triangular symbol on her chest. Others have speculated that this is just a universal symbol of a Diamond, and it could be Pink Diamond, and that this mural was the depiction of the last battle between Pink Diamond and Rose Quartz. I think differently.

White Diamond is and has always been the top of the Diamonds. This is shown by her symbol constantly being at the top of the Diamond Authority symbol, and her mural on the Moon Base shows that she has the most colonized planets and moons by far. Some would argue that she is the ‘oldest’ of the Diamonds. Regardless, she is definitely at the top of her game, even though we have little proof to show it.

When Yellow Diamond was first introduced, fans were in awe. I myself thought that she was just an epiphany of beauty, authority, and everything that a personified diamond would be. She was Yellow Diamond.

When the world was introduced to Blue Diamond, we were given a different aspect of the Diamonds entirely. Diamonds had feelings. Diamonds could be distraught. Diamonds could be vulnerable. Diamonds were capable of the same earth-shattering, depressing emotions that we humans are.

Later on in “That Will Be All” we see that even Yellow Diamond is troubled by the loss of Pink. Even though the two Diamonds are handling the situation very differently, the two still feel the loss of a close figure, some might even say a sister or a lover. Yellow attempts to console her fellow Diamond and encourages her to get back up and be the leader that she needs to be. Yellow has obviously continued her responsibilities as a Diamond, but Blue just hasn’t. Instead, she’s focused on keeping Pink’s legacy alive, and it has made her a shell of what she used to be. Yellow is obviously trying to pull her fellow Diamond from this pit of despair, and return her to her authoritative figure. But where is White Diamond? Surely the head of the Diamond Authority wouldn’t want a fellow Diamond wallowing in despair forever. Wouldn’t she?

Even though Yellow is trying to encourage Blue to stop mourning over the loss of Pink, she’s still there. She’s still concerned about her fellow Diamond. She’s present, and accounting for all of Blue’s latest activity. White Diamond is essentially nonexistent, but she’s not shattered.

We can tell that White Diamond is not shattered/bubbled/missing because:
- She is still present in the Diamond Authority symbol.
- She is not mentioned as a bubbled or shattered gem.
- She is not being mourned over like Pink.
- There are no gems that we have seen bubbled that resemble a Diamond.

Of course, this is only a theory, and it is entirely possible that White Diamond is shattered/bubbled/missing, but I feel that it’s highly unlikely. I mean with that many colonies to run at once, (and certainly more since the war) I think anyone would qualify as ‘missing.’

So what does any of this have to do with White Diamond being the enemy? I’ll tell you. White Diamond shattered Pink Diamond.

That’s preposterous! Why? How? Where?

Rose Quartz shattered Pink Diamond! It’s fact!

No. It’s not. Just like media, it’s what they want you to believe. But who’s they? The higher-ups. The leaders. White Diamond.

Rose’s sword was made to destroy a gem’s body, never the gem. Rose would never shatter someone, as stated by Steven, and I think I stand by that. Of course everyone says that she had to do what she had to, and that it was true, but I just don’t buy it. I think Rose ‘poofed’ Pink Diamond, but nothing more.

Let’s go back to the mural.

Here we can see Rose battling a Diamond. But what is that in front of her? A diamond. A pink diamond. Could this be the actual Pink Diamond? Yes!

It has been made clear that White Diamond is the leader of the Diamond Authority. She wouldn’t care about a small rebellion. Not near enough to come to earth. So what would make her come to earth? Pink Diamond. The well-being of a fellow Diamond. As soon as Pink Diamond is ‘poofed’ or shattered, things get super real for the Diamonds. The rebellion isn’t a game anymore. One of their own is in danger, and that’s enough for White Diamond to put an end to it all.

Rose Quartz proved that this rebellion wasn’t something that could be handled with a snap of their fingers. The Beta Kindergarten was proof of that. As stated by Peridot, the Beta Kindergarten was Homeworld’s scrambled attempt to generate extra soldiers on the ground, mid-way through the rebellion. This wasn’t Homeworld’s attempt. This was Pink Diamond’s attempt. Jasper further reiterates this fact by her emotional speech about her purpose being to fight from the very beginning, because of what Rose Quartz did to her colony, her planet and her Diamond.

Rose Quartz has always been presented to us as a lovely, beautiful being. I personally can’t imagine her harming another gem, not to mention the being that created her. I think Rose Quartz ‘poofed’ Pink Diamond, holding her hostage, and was using her as a means of negotiating with Homeworld and the rest of the Diamond Authority. This is when White Diamond joins the war.

White Diamond finally travels to earth, and brings reinforcements with her. In a final attempt at ending the rebellion, and the gem colonization of earth, Rose Quartz negotiates with White Diamond alone.

It is common knowledge in the real world, that only diamonds can cut diamonds.

Depicted in one of the first murals ever given to us, White Diamond delivers a shattering blow meant for Rose Quartz, but instead strikes the bubbled and defenseless, Pink Diamond, and shatters her gem for good. Infuriated, distraught, and bent on revenge, White Diamond blames Rose Quartz for the death of her fellow Diamond, and who would deny it? The very leader of the Homeworld gems and the Great Diamond Authority.

At an unknown time period afterwards, Homeworld gems are called to retreat, and the three remaining Diamonds join together to create the corruption song. Sadly, many gems are unable to escape, left on earth as corrupted gems, mere shells of what they used to be. Thus, ending the rebellion and the colonization of earth. White Diamond returns to her duties as a Diamond, while Blue and Yellow mourn for their fellow Diamond.

Of course, gem activity does not come to an immediate halt after the rebellion, the Pyramid Temple and the Cluster being examples of that, but we’ll try to figure that out in another theory.

As for White Diamond’s involvement in future episodes of the show, I feel that she will be the last villain Steven and the Crystal Gems face. The show revolves around empathy, and I feel that both Blue and Yellow will be able to be won over by Steven’s compassionate nature, or at least they will think twice about what actually happened in the rebellion. Perhaps in some sort of argument within the council itself, White Diamond would angrily admit that she was the one that shattered Pink Diamond, or in a battle between the Crystal Gems and the Diamonds, they discover Diamonds can’t be shattered by normal gems, and the Diamond’s whole worlds would be changed forever. Homeworld gems would be changed forever. All because of the one Diamond above them all.

White Diamond.

I hope you guys enjoyed my theory on White Diamond and I’ll be working on other theories soon!

7 Thoughts about Power Rangers

On August 28, 1993, Mighty Morphin Power Rangers premiered on Fox Kids. I was eight years old and whether or not I was the intended demographic for the show, I was instantly hooked. It all started with five teenagers with attitudes summoned by Zordon to defend the world against evil forces led by intergalactic baddie Rita Repulsa. Jason Lee Scott (Austin St. John), Kimberly Ann Hart (Amy Jo Johnson), William “Billy” Cranston (David Yost), Trini Kwan (Thuy Trang) and Zack Taylor (Walter Jones) called on the power of the ancient dinosaurs and became a team of superheroes called the Power Rangers and the world was never the same.

Nearly twenty-five years later, those of us who became acquainted with the Power Rangers discovered there would be a reboot of the franchise in the form of a gritty re-imagining of the original team. While initially thrilled about the idea of seeing my childhood superheroes on the big screen, a part of me wondered just how loyal this new film would be to the original source material. Mighty Morphin Power Rangers was a totally kick-ass TV show but even the most die-hard fan has to admit there were some problematic elements in regards to the original series, many I will address later on in this recap.

On March 31, 2017 a couple of friends and I went to our local theater and saw the new film, Power Rangers. One of my friends admitted he was not even born when the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers first debuted and my other friend announced he would have been too old to watch such a show despite only being four/five older years than me. I expected them both to hate it and even braced myself for disappointment of epic proportions. The three of us exited the theater two and a half hours later each raving about how amazing the film was. Below, I will list seven thoughts I have in regards to the film. For those who have not seen the Power Rangers, there will be spoilers in this post. You have been warned…

  1. In the original series, Zack, Trini, Billy, Kimberly and Jason all knew each other and were the best of friends before becoming the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers. In the latest film, our heroes know of each other before discovering Zordon (voiced by Bryan Cranston) but they are certainly not friends. Jason (Dacre Montgomery) is a football star before he winds up in detention (and with an ankle bracelet) after a brush with the law. It is in detention where he meets Billy (RJ Cyler) and Kimberly (Naomi Scott). Trini (Becky G) is a recent transplant in Angel Grove and Zack (Ludi Lin) is a loner who rarely attends class. Instead of Jason being the rallying force behind the five teens coming together, it’s actually Billy who is responsible for the event that eventually leads them to each other…and the power coins.
  2. These ain’t your older brother and sister’s Power Rangers. Our heroes have been re-imagined as more of a modern day Breakfast Club. Jason is a star athlete who loses everything after a prank gone awry. Jason is prone to fits of anger which often-times leaves him incapable of leading the team. However, underneath all of the muscle and bravado there’s a good guy there will a strong moral core who feels the weight of fear, a fear of disappointing those he cares about, most importantly his father (David Denman). Our dear Kimberly, like Jason, used to be one of the popular kids until a sexting scandal rendered her an outcast at Angel Grove High. Billy is a bullied autistic teen who spends a lot of time at the rock quarry because it reminds him of his dad. Trini, the new girl, wrestles with the fact she is not normal like her parents and her two brothers. Zack is trying to deal with the fact that his mother is sick and could possibly die. Instead of our rangers having that established relationship with each other, we get to see them get to know one another before tapping into the power that will ultimately transform them into the Power Rangers.
  3. One of the things my friends and I would joke about in regards to the TV show was how Jason, Trini, Billy, Zack and Kimberly always were together wearing clothing the same color as their respective ranger identities. Anyone with eyes and a shred of common sense in Angel Grove could have put two and two together and figured out these five were the Power Rangers. The movies pays homage to this concept by having each of the rangers wear a pop of color corresponding to their ranger’s color. It’s both effective and subtle.
  4. Morphing is like totally hard, you know? The five of them discover the hidden power coins in the rock quarry and develop superhuman abilities almost immediately. Summoning the armor they will ultimately don in their battle against Rita Repulsa and Goldar takes a lot of time and even after a lengthy training montage (WE NEED A MONTAGE!!!!) our teenagers with attitudes are still not successful in becoming the rangers. I actually like this idea of them not being able to become rangers right away because it forces our characters to learn one another. A team is only effective when it accesses the strengths and weaknesses of it’s individual members. It is only after they are able to truly bond with each other they are able to tap into the power that morphs them into Power Rangers.
  5. Rita Repulsa is freaking terrifying. So yeah, the original Rita Repulsa was a total bad-ass but I never really found her particularly scary. The film’s version of Rita Repulsa (Elizabeth Banks) is wicked and not above murdering any and everyone who gets in her way. Rita even goes as far as to kill one of the rangers. No joke. Another added detail I quite enjoyed about the character was how she was the original Green Ranger who served alongside Zordon, the original Red Ranger. This also makes me wonder, when they debut the Green Ranger in the sequel (of course there will be a sequel) will it be Tommy Oliver…or Tommie Oliver?
  6. The Zords were awesome. I enjoyed the sleek look of the design and their free range of movements. In the TV show, most of the Zords were reminiscent of actual tanks and were big and blocky and a bit cumbersome. One of my favorite moments in the film was the creation of the Megazord and how each Power Ranger controlled a particular part of the machine, i.e. the legs, arms, etc. It really took some coordination between all five rangers in order for them to control Megazord.
  7. The last thing I want to address in regard to the Power Rangers film is how cool it was to see a black nerd character on the big screen. Growing up, I always resonated with the character of Billy because my favorite color was blue and Billy was very intelligent and he wore glasses. Billy was this nerd character who was accepted by those we would call popular. As the resident science geek, Billy also plays a vital role to the team. Another thing I thought was pretty cool was Billy being autistic in the film. I was talking to a coworker of mine yesterday and we were talking about the importance of having visibility in regards to autism in TV and film. Her son is autistic and how coll is it he has someone like him on the big screen as a superhero. Another thing I would also like to point out is the importance of having a LGBT character in the film. Trini is not only the new girl but she also likes girls and because of her sexuality she feels somewhat detached from her family. I also detected a bit of something brewing between Trini and Kimberly. Then again maybe it was all in my head. However, I was so glad they did not play out any kind of romance between any of the rangers in this film. I know there were talks about Kimberly and Jason possibly being romantically-involved in the film which would be a great departure from canon but first and foremost Power Rangers has always been the story of a group of friends coming together to save the world. I would be interested to see if future films do further address Trini’s sexuality because how great would it be to see a young woman fully embracing her sexuality and being a total bad-ass in the process. I know there will be a part of the fandom who will wonder why there needed to be an autistic ranger or a lesbian ranger. Some will even ask, why did they have to make Billy black? These are the same people who flip out whenever there is a character introduced on Sesame Street who has two dads or two moms or a parent that’s incarcerated. Representation is so important because in order to eradicate homophobia and racism and bigotry in our society, we have to acknowledge these people exist! So thank you Power Rangers for going there.

I am thirty-two years old and I have never felt more like that eight year old sitting on the floor of my living room watching Mighty Morphin Power Rangers than I did last night sitting in that movie theater. I recommend Power Rangers to all of you who share the same memories as I do in regards to the TV show. Even if you were never a fan of the show, the story is amazing, the acting was great and it was packed with action. My friends and I definitely had a great time and this is a film I would definitely consider seeing again in theaters and also purchasing once it comes out on DVD. If you have any thoughts or comments in regards to my thoughts, fill free to comment. GO-GO-POWER RANGERS!

Expectations: Exceeded

I can’t believe what just happened. I have watched an episode written by the dreadful duo and I can say that I really liked it despite the fact that Cas was not in it. Let me tell you what exactly I enjoyed about it. (Spoilers are obviously coming, so you have been warned).

Eileen was back. Sam has kept contact with her and that made me extremely happy because I ship Sam/Eileen with all I have. After this episode I’m more convinced than ever that she could be Sam’s perfect endgame. I hope we see her again and alive.

Mick got a sort of redemption arc. I loved the uniforms at Kendrick’s (shout out to Hogwarts), and I knew Dr. Hess would be a mean woman since I saw her and immediately thought of Dolores Umbridge. Mick’s flashbacks made me really sad. I felt empathy and pain in my heart for him, but I also felt really proud of him when he made the right choice and when he stood up for the Winchesters. I couldn’t help the tears running down my cheeks when I saw the end of his story. I’ll miss him! :(

Mary’s this-is-just-for-fun attitude with Mr. Ketch felt refreshing to me. It seemed that the closest to develop some sort of feelings after their encounter was him, not her. I wonder what he will do now that he’s got the direct order to eliminate all American hunters, including Mary. Will he try to spare her life but not her sons’? It’s obvious he doesn’t like the idea of Mary splitting her energy between hunting and her boys. He sees everything black and white, so the fact that she’s hunting means to him that Sam and Dean aren’t so important to Mary. He’s wrong, of course, but I’m interested to see what happens next.

The rest of the episode was good enough. Lucifer is still trying to play Crowley. Will the King of Hell be able to keep himself 10 steps ahead or will his pride and ego be his downfall? On the other hand, I’m not so interested in what will happen to Kelly Kline and Lucifer’s child, but I’m engaged enough to be paying attention to that part of the story as well.

Both Dean and Sam are worried about Cas. They mentioned him a couple of times, and we even saw Dean trying insistently to contact him. Cas is family, so the Winchesters are obviously concerned because he’s M.I.A.

The subtextual romantic interest parallel was so near the surface that I felt it was almost text. At the end of the episode, Sam asked Dean (again in the episode) if he’d heard anything from Cas yet. Then he asked Dean if he thought Cas was alright and Dean answered he didn’t know, but his face was screaming “I’m really worried”.

(Source: X)

What happened immediately after that? Dean asked Sam “Where’s Eileen?” Both Winchesters were asking about a person that is definitely special for the other brother. In this episode, we had evidence of the very close and special relationship that Sam and Eileen have (which Dean even called “cute”).

Dean and Eileen interacted fine, but it was evident that the real connection was between Eileen and Sam. On the other hand, Sam was definitely worried about Cas, but the one calling him and leaving him messages was Dean. It was also evident that the real connection is between Dean and Cas. Eileen right now has a good profile to be Sam’s love interest in the future. Does Cas have the right profile to be Dean’s love interest as well?

I have to go to bed now. I have a meeting very early tomorrow (or later today?), so I have to be up again in less than 4 hours. I just couldn’t go to sleep without writing something about this episode that for sure exceeded my expectations.

I couldn’t upload this as soon as I wanted to, but this chart is the non-spoilery version of the romances. Any available details from the guide will be below the cut and will be in alphabetical order. 

General info and tips will be first, then I’m posting details regarding each romance. These are only the details present in the guide. I am only like 7 hours into the game and haven’t even gotten Peebee yet. 

THIS GETS SPECIFIC. THERE BE [~mild] SPOILERS. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED.

Guys. GUYS!!!!

So EverythingGeek have just had a podcast with Art and Doug, and someone created a summup on Berk’s Grapevine!!!

SPOILERS AHEAD. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!!!

First a couple of episode names:

Gruff Around the Edges - very comedic, focuses on Gruffnut (who is most likely the Tuffnut-lookalike from the trailer!)
Twintuition - the twins think they have developed psychic powers and start predicting the actions of the others
Dire Straits - introduces the Submaripper
Gold Rush - the dragon riders work to get back Berk’s gold
The Longest Day - takes place on the week of midnight sun, when the sun doesn’t set for an entire week, which means we get to see the riders very sleep-deprived; this is also the same episode where Hiccup and Toothless are stranded together on an island and cornered by a new dragon
Midnight Scrum - focuses on several different villains all trying to hunt Hiccup down
Shell Shocked - introduces the Shellfire (or Shell Fire?) dragon and sounds like it’s going to be a two-parter

And then they also talked about the Dragon Eye for a bit, and mentioned that the way the dragon riders find it again is going to be very unique.

Futher more:

-the dragon Hiccup and Toothless meet when they’re stranded on the island is huge, and carries other dragons on its wings
-we can look forward to “a first” with Hiccup and Astrid, taking place in an episode called Blindsided (I think that’s what they said, the connection was a bit choppy) that’s the third to last episode in the season and they say it’s well worth the wait
-new species called Fire Terrors that live on Defenders of the Wing island
-the Triple Stryke will be returning

it’s well worth the wait
IT’S WELL WORTH THE WAIT

Ren’s Semblence

(SPOILERS LAY AHEAD, YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED)

This is my thoughts on what Ren’s Semblance might be..

Up until the newest episode, Ren’s semblance has been a mystery. It was never truly hinted at all until this very episode.

Something struck me when Ren’s father said, “Take action, son..”

Ren is based off of Mulan, the true Hua Mulan. 

Now, here’s where a bit of  research comes into play.

Many know Mulan as the female warrior who fought in place of her father but there is also some other facts about not only her but about her name. And this name may also have to do with Ren’s semblance.

In Chinese, Mulan means Magnolia. Which looks like this:

Do you know what else looks kinda like that flower?

REN’S SYMBOL

Now, Ren’s symbol was also thought to be a waterlily, considering his name literally means “lotus” but what confuses me about that is the lack of all of the waterlily petals. Waterlilies tend to have a lot more petals, A LOT MORE.

We’ve seen very detailed emblems in RWBY. To name a few, Ruby Rose’s, Weiss Schnee’s, Adam Taurus’, Sage Ayana’s..quite detailed..

But why not Ren’s emblem?

Maybe because it might just be a magnolia flower.

The reason why this may also very well be a magnolia flower is that the Magnolia flower’s meaning is one that makes a lot of sense now..especially in Ren’s case.

The magnolia is a symbol of purity and nobility

To be noble is to show courage, generosity or honor.

The emblem of the character has very much to do with defining the semblance as well,

Ruby’s is to turn into a flurry of rose petals, hence the rose, Yang’s is to “burn bright” hence the flaming heart, Nora’s is to conduct electricity and use it to her advantage hence the bolt of electricity on her’s, Velvet’s is to mimic other’s abilities and combine them in fighting routine hence the stitched together heart, and so on and so forth.

And if the Magnolia is a symbol of nobility…

COURAGE.

GENEROSITY.

HONOR.

His semblance is NOBILITY. To be courageous, generous, and be respectful.

As well as the ability to give courage to others…
