storm for all seasons

Storm Witch

“The weather is nature’s disruptor of human plans and busybodies. Of all the things on earth, nature’s disruption is what we know we can depend on, as it is essentially uncontrolled by men.” -Criss Jami, Killosophy

Laura has a noticeable reaction to the lightning and thunder strikes that happen in 2x01. And I have a wonderfully angsty headcanon to propose for it.

There’s been a lot of speculation over the absence or lack of mention of Laura’s mother. One popular theory is that she died prior to the events of our main story, which could suggest why Laura’s dad seems so overly protective of his daughter, what with the bear spray, krav maga lessons and low-res flip phone. 

In 1x12 Laura compares the clarity of her nightmare with “the moment right before a car crash”. This is an oddly specific example and begs the question of whether she’s experienced such a trauma in the past. And whether this could be related to her mother’s whereabouts.

So here we go: I think that Laura was involved in a car crash earlier in her life. This crash claimed the life of her mother. And she jumps every time lightning strikes because the last thing she saw before their car crashed were the glaring headlights of the oncoming vehicle. And her body still hasn’t been able to shake the jump reflex that developed as a result of that trauma. 

Ugh. Lucky she has Carmilla to take care of her now…

It’s hurricane season. Erika just dissipated before making its way to Florida, but apparently we have 3 Category 4s in the Pacific right now, so let’s see what happens. It kind of got me in the mood to write this fic. (Also inspired by headcanon-ing with pahndah the other day). 

“Remind me what in the hell you’re all doing in my apartment?” Roy grumbles, more to himself than his companions, as he rummages for batteries in his kitchen drawer.

AA, Fuery had said. He glances at the Sergeant Major who sits cross-legged on the living room floor with a cable in between his teeth and another coiled around his wrist.

Roy’s gaze travels around the room, landing on Rebecca who stares out the window with narrowed eyes. A perfectly normal thing to do in any other circumstance. When it isn’t rattling from the impact of the most savage torrential storm Amestris has seen in years, for one.

“Catalina!” he calls, “Move away from there!”

She cocks an eyebrow and jabs her thumb in its direction. “This window is going to blow, Mustang.”

The adventures of Jesse and the NEW Order of the Stone are set to continue this month! In the first episode since the Wither Storm finale, Minecraft: Story Mode Episode 5 - ‘Order Up’ will be available starting March 29th!

And that’s not the only exciting news for Minecraft: Story Mode players today… we can also reveal that Order Up! won’t be the last you see of Jesse, as Episode Five will bridge the gap between the Wither Storm story arc, and three all-new adventures that will continue as post-season episodes set to release in the coming months of 2016!

These continuing Adventures of the New Order of the Stone will follow the additional escapades of Jesse and the group as they explore new and unfamiliar worlds beyond their own. All three of these episodes will be add-ons to the season, so you’ll need to own Minecraft: Story Mode in order to purchase and play these three chapters in the series which will include episodes 6, 7, and 8.

We’re keeping further info on those three extra episodes a secret for now, but what can we tell you about the imminent Episode Five?

On a tip from Ivor, Jesse and friends head to an abandoned temple holding mysterious treasures. Ambushed by former Ocelot Aiden and his crew, our heroes find themselves in an entirely new world: Sky City! As they explore, the Order finds that resources are at a premium, and nothing but 'The Void’ exists below the known world. When Aiden convinces Sky City’s ruler that the New Order of the Stone are up to no good, you’ll need to make some tough choices to clear your name, and keep Aiden from destroying an innocent world.

The cast of Minecraft: Story Mode also continues to expand as Jesse, played by Patton Oswalt (Ratatouille) or Catherine Taber (Star Wars Rebels), join Ivor, played by Paul Reubens (Pee-wee’s Big Holiday) and the gang on a trip to the skies. They’ll meet a growing cast that includes Sean Astin (The Goonies, The Lord of the Rings) as Reginald, the loyal Captain of the Guard, Jim Meskimen (Parks and Recreation) as the rebellious Milo, and Melissa Hutchison (The Walking Dead: A Telltale Games Series) as the Founder of Sky City.

Are you ready to tangle with Aiden again? Excited to explore an entirely new Minecraft world with Jesse and the crew? Dive back into Minecraft: Story Mode on March 29th in Episode Five: Order Up! – and stay tuned in the time ahead for more news on the Continuing Adventures of the New Order of the Stone!

Since it's snow season:

America and Russia playing in the snow, and America throws a hard snowball, hitting Russia square in the face. Russia cries, and America is freaking out, touching and kissing his face. Finally he picks him up and carries him into the house, making him hot chocolate.

Both of them wrestling in the snow

Probably end up making love in the snow, and then going back inside to cuddle in front of the fireplace.

Having a really slow make out session outside during a minor snow storm.

Russia feels extra cold during this season, so America always goes all out and buys a shit ton of blankets and pillows. Probably makes an awesome fort in front of the fireplace, filled with the warmest blankest. A little nest for the both of them~

Imagine them slow dancing in the snow

Russia freaking out whenever America climbs on the roof to jump in the snow

Both of them love playing in the snow with the little kids, but they get too competitive and end up scaring all the children away.

Taking walks in the snow. But America and his clumsy self always finds a way to slip on every ice patch.

Making holiday pastries together and sending the burnt ones to England.

Both of them just being huge fluffballs of dorkiness.

OK. Let’s talk about a thing. 

This finale of The 100 was incredible for a lot of reasons, but the one that is sticking with me is this: I am satisfied. I haven’t even begun to think of the time we have coming where there will be no new episodes, I am unbothered by the reality of the hiatus. There is so much to sit with and think about. What these characters have been through, the journey they’ve been on. And it’s not like we had a major cliff hanger (not that the AI reveal isn’t interesting), but… I am EXCITED for the next season, but I’m also satisfied with the ending. There is closure. And I will be back for season 3 excited to see what’s next, how the world expands, what new challenges await our broken and battered heroes. 

I feel like in an effort to get hooks into audiences people often leave us unsatisfied, wanting desperately. But the truth is, if you really want to hold your audience, give them instead so MUCH to think about in regards to what has been that it will tide them over until the next part of the story. 

I won’t really be speculating on season 3, but I will likely spend a lot of time thinking about seasons 1 and 2 and that… that is quite a feat. Refreshing, to be honest, in the world of shocking character deaths and cliff hangers. 

My favorite day ever on The Walking Dead is something that happens every year. And it’s when the cast and crew get to go away from the studio into the little town of Senoia, where we shoot, and watch the premiere of that season together. And its so gratifying and so fun and lovely just to sit back and watch the crew in particular come and let loose and have fun and watch on screens all around how their hard work has paid off. It warms my heart and it’s always my favorite day every season.

And then my other favorite days on set are when all the cast is working together. Like the reunion scene in season 5 and the barn scene in season 5 where the storm is coming and we all have to rush the door to keep it from coming down. Any time that the whole cast is all together is a super fun day because there are a lot of hysterical people in this cast and it’s a lot fun to cut up — amongst the hard work that we have to do and the bugs and the heat and everything else, it’s fun just to laugh.
