such a great cliffhanger

Part 1 | Part 2

How about… Lance distracting Pidge with a kiss (which works wonders) before he shoves her into an escape pod to save her. (Think season 1 epi 10 with Allura saving Shiro)

This has been rolling around my head for weeks, as like what could make for an awesome season 3 cliffhanger, as they rescue matt and sam.

The great request by @vanlegion which took forever to deliver because I wanted to buff up my drawing skills first so I could do it justice. I have a few more requests on hold for that same reason. Also first time ever drawing two people kissing, which turned out okay-ish.


This post was supposed to be much shorter, but people in the Hannibal fandom are so talented and there are too many fics that I love, so this is the result…
After much struggle I decided to divide the stories into two categories: fics that I read some time ago and that still hunt me, and some WIPs that I am following eagerly.
I tried to avoid reccing the “classic” stories and to limit myself to one rec for each writer. It doesn’t mean that I don’t love them, it’s just a length-of-the-post problem!

Fanfictions that stole my heart and that still have to give it back

Friendship is Not My Forte by Azure_K_Mello
“When Will becomes too ill to stand Hannibal takes him to another neurologist. Then the good doctor takes care of him and learns a little more about Will in the process.”
Season one AU where Will’s mental issues have much more influence in his life than in the series. Will is acutely aware of his problems and perfectly capable of dealing with them, and the story explores his coping mechanisms and the constant struggle to live as a functional member of society. In the meantime, Hannibal murders people, Jack tries to catch murderers and the slow burn love story proceeds. This is a WIP, but absolutely charming!

Alternative Means of Influence by 9_of_Clubs and Quedarius
“There are means of influence other than violence.
A Ravenclaw with a rare and inconvenient talent for legilimency; a Slytherin who cannot speak, and thus cannot spell. Will Graham and Hannibal Lecter are strange boys who fall into a strange friendship in this Hogwarts AU, told through their journal entries.
Magic and all else aside, what could have been if they came into each other’s lives at just the right moment.”

Hogwarts AU sadly in hiatus -.-“
This story touches all the genres, from tooth-rotting fluff to devastating angst and violence. As in the Harry Potter books, the plot grows increasingly darker and Hannibal’s sad past is slowly revealed. This story is an emotional rollercoaster and it is impossible to stop reading it!

Wage Your War by Della19
“To say that Will Graham is still an unmated, childless omega at the age of thirty-eight is his own choice is true. It is not to say that it is his preference. Will wants a mate and a family just as much – perhaps even more – than the next omega. He’s simply never met that one person who fit the bill before. And then he walks into Jack Crawford’s office and meets Hannibal Lecter and well that, as they say in the business, is that.
Now all he needs to do is convince Hannibal of that. But well, this is Hannibal Lecter he is dealing with. It must be done a certain…flair. But that isn’t a problem for Will. Not at all.
After all, snakes may kill mongoose, but one must never forget this as well: mongoose hunt snakes too.
It’s Will Graham’s turn to wage his war.
Or, here is a fic about omega!Will Graham manipulating alpha!Hannibal Lecter into getting exactly what he wants.”

This story features dark omega Will slowly manipulating Hannibal into loving him. It is refreshing to see Will using his empathy as a weapon to get what he wants and to kill without a second thought. In the meantime, he also convinces Hannibal that Hannibal is trying to court Will, and not the other way round! Because, of course, it wouldn’t do to destroy an alpha’s pride…
Absolutely dark and delightful!

Bloodline by @xzombiexkittenx
“Someone is murdering fledgling vampires and it’s up to Will Graham to figure out whodunnit while coming to grips with his own undeath. Ostensibly, Hannibal Lecter, whose noble and ancient linage opens doors for the investigation, is supposed to be helping. Helping, is not the term Will would use.”
The classic story where Will has to pretend to be Hannibal’s boyfriend to solve a murder, but with vampires! The investigation proceeds more or less smoothly, and in the meantime we get to discover Hannibal’s quirks as a vampire. Because it is not possible for Hannibal not to cook, right?
Very funny and heartwarming fic, with murders. As in the best Hannigram tales.

This Dangerous Game by MissDisoriental
“ “Keep your wits about you Inspector Graham – I rather fear you are going to need them.”
London 1888. In order to catch the notorious serial killer known as Jack the Ripper, Will Graham must seek the insights of Dr Hannibal Lecter.“

Hannigram AU set in victorian London, with great characterization, humor, cliffhangers and an intricate plot!
This is my absolute favourite AU in all the fandom. Miss Disoriental is incredibly talented and can both make you laugh or scream in terror!
The connection between Will and Hannibal is not explained, is simply shown… They behave differently around each other, they are happier and more relaxed. They really seem meant for each other! Every sentence of the story is filtered through Will’s or Hannibal’s thoughts, which gives emotional resonance to every little details.
This is an absolute masterpiece and everyone should read it!!

Sensates by @starkaryen
“Will Graham is consulting for the FBI on the case of the Minnesota Shrike, but things complicate and everything goes wrong. When he kills Garret Jacob Hobbs, something happens to him and he starts having hallucinations with the known serial killer Hannibal Lecter, who has been imprisoned on the Baltimore State Hospital For The Criminally Insane for three years.
Or, at least, Will thinks they’re hallucinations.”

A Hannibal-Sense8 crossover. Hannibal and Will can touch and feel each other even if they have never met. Will knows from the start that Hannibal is a killer, but he is inevitally drawn to him.
This story is incredibly sweet and emotional :D

A Way to Live by @sugarmaus
“Hannibal is in the market for a new slave. It’s time for his next experiment.”
A really dark story. Hannibal is planning to amuse himself with his slave and then to kill him when he will get bored. Will has to read him correctly and to keep being interesting to survive.
The story is told by Hannibal’s sick POV. Will’s expressions and reactions are constantly evaluated and challenged, and you can see Hannibal slowly falling for his slave… and constantly planning how to kill him. The sense of danger is palpable and the exchanges between the two characters are full of tension.

WIPs that have me hooked

I Do Wander Everywhere by @moku-youbi
“ It’s something he could always do, as far back as he can remember. The first time that really stood out in his mind, he was six and his father was angry. Will did it without thought, running down the hall, trying to calm his wild heart and rapid breathing. His father’s footsteps heavy behind him.
In the end his father had dragged him out from the bed. “Never again,” he’d said, holding Will tight enough to leave bruises on his arms. “Your mother’s gone and I won’t have that under my roof.”
Canon Divergence from Takiawase. Using his ability to become invisible, Will beats Beverly to Hannibal’s house, but his reckoning soon takes on an entirely different shape than what he’d originally intended…”

Will has the ability to become invisible, and he uses it to get out of prison and wreak havoc on Hannibal. Hannibal understands what is going on, but decides to play along…
The idea is enthralling, and I am so curious about what will happen!

Priority One by @shiphitsthefan
“Will Graham became the unwilling host of a xenomorph, ultimately leading to his demise. Hannibal, an android scientist working for the Verger-Pazzi Corporation, finds his dear friend’s death unacceptable; additionally, the opportunity to study the newly-discovered species is too tempting to turn down.
The Company looks to profit; the crew of the Baltimore, to cope; the resurrected and hybridized Will, to accept his fate. As for Hannibal, his developing emotions may prove more alien than the actual one he cares for on board.”

This is a delightful serie of ficlets telling the domestic little inconveniences of android!Hannibal and xenomorph!Will. The stories are packed with so many emotions, and are hopeful and sad all at once. I can’t wait for the next chapter!!

highlands by peacefrog
“Will woke to the sound of crunching leaves. Nearby, water flowed, the scent of it bright in his nostrils. He opened his eyes and squinted against thin rays of sun. His body was bare save for the boxer shorts he went to bed in.”
When Will sleeps, he wanders into the kindom of Hannibal the Forest King. When he wakes up, he deals with the real Hannibal.
This is too short, I want to know more about this universe!

An untamed force by DrHannibalLecterMD
“A season 1 canon divergence with a different meeting.”
This is an Alpha/Beta/Omega Verse, but with a twist. Will and Hannibal meet and have sex, and Will leaves shortly after. Some months later, Hannibal found him…and his son.
There are a lot of things going on in this story. We have a serial killer trying to befriend the Ripper. We have the Ripper declaring unending love to “someone”. We have Hannibal wondering if he should just kill Will and take custody of the baby or do the effort and court him. Through murders, of course.

Conquerors by @cinnamaldeide
“Will had never felt the need to wear them in the presence of Alana, never wanted to distance himself from her, not until Hannibal went from being his best friend to the person who stole his longstanding crush.”
A short but intense dialogue featuring annoyed Will, oblivious Alana and scholar Hannibal. The interactions between the three characters are delightful, especially Hannibal trying to find the meaning of his name in history. But Will can see right through him.



-Between them rolled the unmistakable sound of a cat’s purr.

Obsession, Chapter 6

And so I finished! My favorite scene of the first part of the Tendencies series by @kryallaorchid. The last line was so good and what a great way to make a cliffhanger. I was in the edge of my seat in this chapter and had to reread it several times to fully absorb the weight of this scene. Damn.

Sorry for the lack of consistent between characters, altho i think by the last pages i found a comfortable way to draw them. 

P.s.: Now I will finally read Quiver! I’m prepared myself and i havent even spoiled myself because i want to be really surprised! ( be honest with me guys, how many tissues im gonna need?)

Top 9 Animated Shows of 2016

I don’t wish to mince words.  2016 sucked.  It sucked a lot.  In addition to losing several beloved celebrities, including Alan Young, Alan Rickman, David Bowie, just to name a handful, my family lost two pets in as many months, and dealt with several other personal losses that, I’ll be honest, has really dashed my holiday spirits this year.  

It’s been a rough time, but one of the reasons that I adore animation is that it is the window to the fantastic, a mirror of the soul whose only restrictions are the imagination of the writers and artists.  They are my escape, and my passion.  I believe that a good story and good animation can take you on a journey that can rival any book.  I believe that with all of my heart.  

And while 2016 definitely sucked in many, MANY respects…It did not in the Animation department.  With several incredible films including  Moana, Kubo and the Two Strings, and Zootopia, and a strong stable of Animated Television shows as well.  And so for this list, I’m going to included my Nine Favorite shows from 2016.  I will also include the best places to watch said shows online, if you feel like checking them out for yourself.

Without further adu:

9) Kulipari: An Army of Frogs

Where can I watch it?: Netflix Exclusive

Why is it worth my time?: A stellar voice cast including Josh Keaton, Keith David, Charlie Adler, and Mark Hamill–just to name a few.  Character designs by Greg Guler, and snappy writing and direction from Tad Stones.  This is an all around strong show that is tons of fun to watch.  It’s biggest weakness is it is a touch formulaic (which isn’t necessarily a bad thing) but the writing, characters, and animation make up for it.  

8) Milo Murphy’s Law

Where Can I Watch It?: Disney Channel, Disney XD, Disney XD App

Why is it worth my time?: From the creative team behind Phineas and Ferb comes the series about Milo Murphy.  The descendant of Edward Murphy, Milo is a afflicted with his curse.  For Milo, anything that CAN go wrong, always WILL go wrong.  What makes it interesting is that Milo goes about his life crazy-prepared, and with an infectiously positive attitude.  Not hurt by the fact that the titular character is voiced by non other than “Weird” Al Yankovic.  With the writing team of Phineas and Ferb, and a star like Weird Al on your billing, naturally many episodes have a fun musical number.  This show is sure to lift your spirits if you’re just having a Milo Murphy kind of day.  

7) Star vs. The Forces of Evil

Where can I watch it?: Disney XD, Disney XD App, Hulu (Season 1 only, as of 12/25/16)

Why is it worth my Time? This fun little show has really started growing the beard since its debut last year.  With an ongoing mystery about Star’s family history underlying the second season, one definitely gets the feeling that much more is going on beneath the surface.  

6) Voltron: Legendary Defender

Where can I watch it?: Netflix Exclusive

Why is it worth my time?: I was never a fan of the original Voltron.  It was before my time. But hearing Josh Keaton–One of my favorite voice actors–Sing the praises of this show over and over again on twitter got me hyped.  Nor was I to be disappointed, for this show was a treat.  There’s distinct nods to the Classic show–Which again, I never saw, but I NEVER once felt like I was missing anything important.  Indeed, I enjoyed every second of this show’s first season, and the amazing cliffhanger it left us on.  I never had any doubts that it would get a second season, and I can’t wait to actually catch that season next month.  

5) Miraculous: Tales of Ladybug and Cat Noir

Where can I watch it?: Nickelodeon, iTunes, Netflix (Starting February 14th) 

Why is it worth my time?: I hadn’t heard of this show before a few weeks ago, but now I feel like I seriously missed out.  After after asking some friends, they heartily recommended this French Cartoon.  I dove right into it.  The show is very formulaic, but makes up for it with a great mythology, fun characters, and a downright adorable two-person love square (in which the titular heroes are in love with each other, but due to being ignorant of each others secret identities are in love with the wrong personas, preventing them from actually hooking up) Season 2 drops in May, and promises a shakeup of the status quo dominating the formulaic nature of the episodes, and I can’t wait to see it.   

4) Steven Universe  

Where can I watch it?: Cartoon Network, Cartoon Network App, Hulu

Why is it worth my time?: This show continues to grow an already impressive beard, and it doesn’t show any signs of stopping.  It’s become rather famous within Nerd Circles for the clever writing, long term plot planning, and amazing cast of characters.  

3) Star Wars: Rebels

Where can I watch it?: iTunes, Disney XD, Disney XD App

Why is it worth my time?: This show has been getting better and better each season.  The scrappy crew of The Ghost actually makes me give a crap about Star Wars, in ways I never expected.  As they face down the Empire, while exploring the deep, rich mythology available in the Star Wars Universe.  Bonus points in having some of the scariest villains on TV.  Darth Vader’s appearances on the show actually show why he was an effectively scary villain, delivering a curb stomp battle on our heroes every time he meets them.   And General Thrawn of the current season actually makes me feel like the Rebels have lost ground every time he appears on screen.  Bonus points for fans of the recent film installment Rogue One; that movie is littered with easter eggs and references to this series.  Most obviously?  Look for the Ghost fighting in the battle above Scarif.

2) Trollhunters

Where can I watch it?: Netflix Exclusive

Why is it worth my time?: From the brilliant mind of Guillermo del Toro comes a coming-of-age story that, Quite frankly, is everything I look for in a fantasy series.  This is the show that I want to watch when I think I want to watch a fantasy series.  Starring the late Anton Yelchin as Jim Lake Jr, this show features an all star cast of multi-faceted heroes, villains, and lots of…Grey areas.  I cannot praise this show enough.  It only arrived on Netflix two days ago (as of the writing of this post) and it is one of the best animated shows of the year.  The season finale had me in tears at the end.  And the cliffhanger promises even more great fantasy in the next season (which I very much hope we get, even if del Toro will have to recast the lead due to Anton Yelchin’s sad and unfortunate passing.  Every episode is dedicated to his memory) 

1) Gravity Falls

 Where can I watch it?: Hulu, iTunes

Why is it worth my time?: Gravity Falls remains my second favorite animated show of all time (Though Trollhunters came very close to knocking it down to third.) and it came to an incredibly satisfying conclusion in the early part of this year.  Creator Alex Hirsch chose to end the show on a very high note, closing all of the major story arcs, while still leaving quite a few mysteries left for the fans to decipher.  (Literally in many cases) This is a show about Family, with amazing writing, awesome voice work (much provided by creator Alex Hirsch himself) and a deep, rich inner mythology, this show will be one that I return to again and again.  

And that’s it.  Those are the Nine Shows I enjoyed the most from this hellhole of a year known as 2016.  I hope that these little blurbs encourage you to check out at least one of these shows.  Or even all of them.  And I hope that they bring you the same joy that they’ve brought me this year.  

God Bless, and have a Merry Christmas,

~~The Disney Wizard.  

Bloody Damsel




The noise brought you out of your unconscious state. Opening your eyes was a different ball game. You spent around 3 minutes battling the urge to fall into the seductive darkness and the need to find that infuriating noise and crush it. You were finally able to crack an eyelid open, only to wish you hadn’t. The sight that greeted you came with the memories of how you got here.

The dripping sounded from your right, your eyes felt like sandpaper as you glanced over to see a tube coming out of your arm, slowly feeding a thick red liquid into a bucket on the floor.

Then it was like your mind caught up, and the pain kicked in. You were being held up by two thick chains that were shackled to your wrists and wrapped around your the tops of your shoulders keeping your arms level. The chains hung from a metal beam that went along the ceiling. They pinched the skin around your shoulders and you could feel the bruises forming already. Your legs were folded beneath you in an awkward way and you couldn’t feel them.

You shoulders were in agony, burning with pain, the angle that you had been in for what felt like hours was throbbing along with the pump of your blood. The right side of your face was sticky where you had been bashed over the head.

Freaking Vampires. You thought bitterly. They had got a jump on you when you stopped to reload your gun.

Shit, where were Sam and Dean? How long have I been down here? They must be looking for you. You didn’t even want to think about what Dean was going to do to the Vamps that took you. For the most part, Dean had managed to reign in his overprotective nature when it concerned you, knowing that if he overstepped the line you would flip. You were just as good a hunter as he was. But in times like this, you knew he would stop at nothing to find you. Dead or alive. Hopefully alive.

You weren’t going to wait for him to find you like this though, you could at least make an effort to get out of this horrible room. Vampires sure don’t have any taste for homely decorations. The grey stone walls were littered with mould spots, the floors were covered with old dusty red rugs that smelt like they had been stolen from a rubbish bin. A few dirty cream couches were pushed up against the far walls and next to you was a stack of stained buckets.

Your knees shrieked at you from hours of disuse as you tried to stand up. Your shoulders pulsated with white hot pain and your head spun from the blood loss.


The door to your right slammed open. You dropped from your efforts, snapped your eyes shut and let your head hang low, feigning unconsciousness. Not that difficult as you felt it creeping up again. The movement didn’t help you any as it tugged your arms harshly, making it feel like they were going to pop out of their sockets. Biting your tongue to hold down a scream, you slowed your breath. Steps sounded from the doorway, slowly making their way towards you and stopping in front of the half full bucket.

“We won’t get much from this one. Too small.” muttered a gruff male voice.

“Ugh, I knew I should have gone for the tall one. Those hands-” a lighter female voice made a shuddering sound that sounded.. sexual? “I might have to keep him all to myself.”

You mentally rolled your eyes.

The man scoffed. “Yeah right, Clare. You barely managed to catch this scrap. I’ll be the one to do the hunting next time. Maybe then we’ll be able to feed all of us. What’s left of us anyway.” he crouched down and gripped your chin. Letting your face go slack, your heart pounded in desperate hope that he wouldn’t notice you were faking. You could keep them here for a little while longer, spread them out so Sam and Dean wouldn’t get ambushed when they come for you. It wasn’t much but maybe it would give them a chance.

He lifted your face up, tilting it left and right. Inspecting you. “Although, she is a prize” He ran his thumb across your lips and you fought the urge to gag. You couldn’t take them both right now, not chained up and feeling like your brain might just start leaking out of your ears. You just had to wait. As much as you wanted to headbutt this bloodsucker for touching you and undoubtedly thinking his dirty vampire thoughts, you let him do it.

Goddamn it.

He snatched his hand away suddenly, causing your head to swing down and your chin to jab into your chest. Well if I wasn’t dizzy before, I certainly am now, asswipe.

“Did you hear that?” he shot at Clare.

They must have had the rest of their short conversation with their eyes as they both disappeared, and the room was quiet.

And the door was open.


“Y/N? Y/N?! …Damn it” Dean let his gun hang from one hand as he searched through the piled up bodies. It was his idea to storm them whilst they were all together. Easy pickins. he thought. You had been sceptical, 10 - 3 could easily go wrong. All Dean had to do was smirk and confidently say “We can take them simple, how ‘bout you, sweetheart?”, and you faltered. He loved that you were so stubborn, so proud. When the easy choice was to wave the white flag, you rarely could. Although this time Dean wished that you did.

“She’s not here, Dean. They must have taken her.” Sam walked over to Dean, stepping over a body. “Look, there’s only 9 here. Must have knocked her out.” Dean’s eyes became murderous at the thought of a bloodsucker hitting you. “Hey, hey.” Sam slapped his hand on Dean’s shoulder trying to snap him out of his rage. “She’s alive, that’s the main thing. It’s Y/N, she’s not gonna go down without a fight.” Dean nodded and pocketed his gun. He made his way over to the Impala with a stormy face and pulled open the door on the drivers side.

“Let’s go, we gotta find out where the nest is, and quickly.” He punctuated his sentence by slamming his car door.


You hadn’t managed to escape your chains, but judging by the commotion you could hear upstairs, it sounded like Sam and Dean had tracked down the nest. The bucket next to you was almost full now, you felt your ability to think slide out along with your blood. You couldn’t keep your eyes open for more than a few seconds, every breath making your arms twinge, your fingers were long numb and your arms had started to go cold. You prayed Dean would find you soon. As much as you don’t like to be a damsel in distress, you were certainly in distress right now and could do with a prince to slay the beast.

Gunshots and shouting got closer to the open door, echoing into the room. You cracked your eyes open again and started to breathe a little faster, trying to lift your head was like trying to lunge a boulder across a building.

“Dean.” Your voice was little more than a crackle of sound. Something dark flew past the doorway, a body? “Dean.” You tried again, a little louder, a little clearer.

Sam appeared in the doorway, out of breath and gripping the doorframe. His jacket splattered in blood and his hair in his face. “Y/N? Oh my god, DEAN!” he bolted forwards and dropped to his knees in front of you. Grabbing the shackles at your wrists, he attempted to prise them open. You almost lashed out at him from all the jerking motions wracking even more pain along your arms, but could only manage to grit your teeth and emit a low moan. “Sorry, sorry” Sam muttered breathily. They had been bent out of shape by sheer force, he wasn’t going to get them off here. Instead he stood up and examined the metal bar.

“SAMMY?” you could hear Dean’s voice and almost whimpered in relief. He burst into the room, somehow covered in more blood than Sam. “Y/N! Shit!” it was his turn to drop to his knees. You were starting to breathe slower, blackness bled into view and you knew that if you didn’t get out of here and to a hospital soon, you were going to die. The thought had you whimpering.

“Dean, get me out of here.” You sounded like a child, you definitely felt like one. He tentatively cupped your face in his hands and turned it upwards. You could barely see him through the hazy vision, but it was enough.

“I’ve got you.” seeing the storm still brewing in his eyes, so different to how softly he cradled your cheeks made you feel safe.

So you closed your eyes.

“Hey, hey, hey, Y/N, nonono, keep your eyes open baby, come on keep ‘em open for me. SAM GET HER DOWN NOW. Y/N, Y/N!!”


A/N: I have intentions to write more for this one, don’t worry! I just felt like it sounded great on a cliffhanger.

Arrow 5x23 - “Lian Yu” What We Know What We Hope

What We Know

Extended Promo


DEATHSTROKE, NYSSA AL GHUL, MERLYN AND DIGGER HARKNESS JOIN OLIVER’S BATTLE AGAINST PROMETHEUS – The battle between Oliver (Stephen Amell) and Adrian Chase (Josh Segarra) culminates in a final epic battle on Lian Yu. After recent events, Oliver decides to recruit a group of unlikely allies – Slade (guest star Manu Bennett), Nyssa (guest star Katrina Law), Merlyn (John Barrowman) and Digger Harkness (guest star Nick. E. Tarabay) – to defeat Chase. However, Chase has his own army – Black Siren (guest star Katie Cassidy), Evelyn Sharp (guest star Madison McLaughlin) and Talia al Ghul (guest star Lexa Doig) – and the forces collide in an explosive season finale.

Promo Stills

Cast on IMDb

Note: is it just me or IMDb just listed everyone (erratickly at times as it’s no way Julianna is rigth after Stephen on the Credits order) and some probably aren’t going to be there? If you have other info please tell me but Deadshot(?); Tatsu(?); Constantine(?); Mari(?); Roy(?); Rory(?); Anarky(?)… I’m almost certain Marc told us Rory wasn’t coming back this Season; Roy, we keep hoping but…I don’t think he was filming.

Behind the screen pics

What we expect / hope

This Season of Arrow has not failed on giving us pumped, fast paced, breath taking episodes and it looks like for Season Finale they are taking us on a ride that is threatening to blows us out of the Earth atmosphere.

Firstly there’s so many great characters coming back to our screens for this Finale there’s no way they can fail in providing for great fights; second, Chase is a top node villain, right up there with Mirakuru pumped Slade Wilson; third, we know we are losing people, wondering Who will have us at the hedge of our seats (eventually right up until Season 6 premiere)

The fights are going to be epic and both the stills and the promo show a few of them:

Nyssa vs Talia

The al-Ghul sisters having at it is a long wish for all of us.

We don’t know if this is a fight to the death or not, we only know there is going to be a clear winner

Colar resposta do Marc à minha pergunta

I hope they both survive.

Between the two Nyssa is the one more meaningful on the Arrowverse, a “player” on both Arrow and Legends. Talia is more relevant in the comics, on Batman, and a great foe for the showrunners to keep up their sleeve in case it’s needed.

Dinah vs BS

Dinah finally shows up and right when it’s needed. BS doppelganger on Earth 1 wasn’t a Meta but her power fell on to someone else.

Don’t know if that is going to be a surprise to BS, hope it is. Plus it looks like their Scream’s equal each other with one added advantage for Dinah in future Season 6; Curtis gadget from 5x22 protects her from any soundwave blocker. A pity it was left there on the ground at Dinah’s home

 or did someone pick it up? If so I’m really hoping it was Oliver.

This fight is not life and death because both characters were confirmed for Season 6 and Marc even went to the extent to say they wouldn’t kill KC character ever again.  So they will scream their heads off, in the end the Team that includes BS will lose, and Team Arrow that includes Dinah will win.

Originally posted by yourreactiongifs

I know BS fits the plan of getting Olicity haters back to watching and that’s really why that character is there. It also fits as the main opponent to Dinah and to deepen Quentin arc that has been pretty basic since he was successful in overcoming his drinking problem.

I really enjoyed the good “couple” / bad “couple” feels the show gives us here

Yes, I do know Oliver and Nyssa are not really a couple, they never could or would be, but Chase and BS wouldn’t be bad IMO. An Oliver/Felicity fighting Chase/BS for Season 6 doesn’t sound that bad but I don’t think that’s what they are going for here. Chase won’t be around for Season 6 (either he’s dead, in jail or committed to an asylum) this looks to me like a Big Bad mantle pass on.

With BS as Big Bad of the Season Team Arrow needs Dinah, she’s the one that holds the same kind of weapon, the one that can physically counter act BS.

Oliver vs Chase

The fight we all been waiting for. I don’t know how many steps Chase thinks he has on Oliver now, 10, 50… what I know is that I don’t think Oliver is making the moves the way Chase expected. He definitely expected Oliver to come to Lian Yu but I don’t think he was expecting the alliances Oliver brings in with him.

Chase has been preparing this moment for years, his purpose all along was having a broken Oliver so close to the hedge that a simple nudge would send him spinning down the lowest pit and into a suicidal cycle, and William is the last nudge and Chase is ready to give it.

But that’s not the Oliver that stands in front of him.

Plus Chase’s Team is nowhere near to aid him in anyway. They are facing their one foes; and the people Chase was holding has leverage are all free except for William.

But William is really the one that matters. To get to him Oliver will have to go through Chase but Oliver values and knows something Chase is probably not considering, his Team is as dead set as him in getting William to safety. They would risk themselves for it; they won’t leave or run for cover before William is safe. And the Team will get William, I have no doubt.

Oliver’s alliances

Besides Team Arrow (Felicity, Thea, Diggle, Curtis, Rene, Dinah), the “volunteering” Malcolm Merlyn and Nyssa al-Ghul (since 5x22). Oliver goes to the ARGUS prison on Lian Yu and recruits both Harkness and Slade Wilson (not under Mirakuru influence anymore).

Slade Wilson

The “old times” when they were brothers. The “old times” before the Mirakuru. Slade has a son, just like Oliver, he’s on board to fight but what will he want in exchange? His freedom? More than that? Only that? Nothing?


He’s only shown in one still (like Rene) a hint that he may be involved in scenes too interesting to be showing up in the promos.

If I can venture a guess I would say William’s rescue.

Other things happening

William’s rescue

There’s no detail or images on how William is rescued but we know someone is rescuing him. Samantha was taken too (hence she didn’t alert Oliver before 5x22) so I have no doubt she’s on the group that goes to save William. The other members of this group I think are: Thea, Felicity, Curtis, Malcolm, Harkness.

Those are the ones that are not involved in any face off with Team Prometheus members. I would add Diggle if it weren’t for the still that shows him at Nyssa, Deathstroke and Dinah side. Same with Rene.

Queen’s siblings

Oliver goes to face Team Prometheus and splits the Team. I recall the two truths and a lie that listed a moment when Thea would not agree with Oliver’s “orders”, I think this is true and that this is the moment when it happens.

Oliver doesn’t want Thea joining the part of the Team that will face Team Prometheus, Thea does not agree. But Thea will accept, she’s needed to save William


I look at the still’s and I have 3x23 feels all over. Oliver is going off to face the dangerous, more personal, foe he ever faced; a foe that has proven, time and time again, that he plays Oliver like a fiddle. Oliver may not come back, but Felicity will make sure Prometheus won’t break Oliver again with his mind games.

She’s the only one that can reassure Oliver that Chase is wrong, Oliver is a good man, the proof being that Felicity, the woman Oliver recognizes for her goodness, for her light, loves him, she allways will. He made her life better just by being in it, not worse like Chase argued, never worse.

Getting out of the Island

Are they getting out of the Island in current timeline before the end of the episode? That’s a question we can only guess the answer to. My guess is they will be on their way out of the Island, eventualy at least part of the Team that got to William and William himself will be on the way out. Remember the plane doesn’t have the capacity to fly everyone at the sametime and I do think William and Samantha will take precedence over everyone else, plus someone that can fly the plane (maybe Curtis). Others will need to find another way out. Team Prometheus knows where their transport in is so they are the ones with the advantage to use those. But this is all a guessing game. What I do know is not all answers will be given and the Season will end with a cliffhanger, the greatness of which we never witnessed before, at least not on Arrow.

On the opposite end, on Flashbacks, Oliver Queen manages to get to the boat Anatoly got him and he’s off the Island. Somewhere along the line there will be a last face off between him and Kovar. A parallel to Oliver vs Chase. Both fights will probably share the time slot episode wise keeping us jumping from one to the other in a incredibly pumped moment where Arrow will have the oportunity to once again show us how different the Oliver that left the Island 5 years ago is from the Oliver that is at the Island in current time (hope I don’t get disappointed on this).

On flashbacks we are in to face more terribly emotional scenes as the show is going to present us with scenes they didn’t show on the pilot. I’m wishing for these scenes to be shown: Moira, Thea, Tommy finding out Oliver had been found alive; Quentin finding out Oliver is alive and is hope building on Sara survival only to be crushed all over again.

Of course I know they are going to show double L too. I’m not ready for this but it’s the final end of Oliver and double L story.

'Riverdale' season finale: Is [spoiler] really dead?

WARNING: This post contains major spoilers about the season finale of Riverdale!

The CW’s Riverdale wrapped up a great first season with a major dramatic cliffhanger: Fred Andrews (Luke Perry) was shot by an intruder at Pop’s Diner and seemed to die in his son Archie’s arms. Also, Jughead (Cole Sprouse) joined the Serpents, Cheryl (Madelaine Petsch) burned down Thornhill, and Betty (Lili Reinhart) has a secret brother! EW talked to executive producer Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa about all of this cray cray and what’s in store for season 2.

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: Is Fred Andrews really dead?
ROBERTO AGUIRRE-SACASA: The only thing I can say is you will definitely see Fred in the season premiere of season 2. That’s really all I can say.

Hiram Lodge is coming in season 2 and being played by Mark Consuelos. How will his move to Riverdale affect season 2?
That’s one of our bigger casting additions. Hiram has created a lot of chaos in Riverdale for someone who wasn’t even in Riverdale. He was operating behind bars through his wife, through his business associates, through his mafia connections. I can only say that when Mark Consuelos arrives, as handsome and charming as he is, we’re definitely going to get a sense that a young Michael Corleone has arrived in Riverdale. Our characters aren’t going to be quite sure what to make of him or what he’s up to. He obviously plays a huge part in the series. One of the classic dynamics from the comic books, which we love to honor and subvert, in a way, and sometimes both, is Hiram-versus-Archie. Hiram hates Archie in the comic books. We’re going to play a much more complex version of that, of course. But yeah, there’s going to be an interesting triangulation between Archie and Veronica and Hiram that’s going to be one of our big engines this season.

Will there be a time jump? Or do you imagine picking up right after Fred is shot?
I think time jumps are great, but in this case, since we ended on such a big cliffhanger, I think we really have to own it. And the way we’re thinking about what happened in the diner, I talk a lot about Archie being the hero of our show and, to me, what Archie witnessed in Pops is the equivalent of what Bruce Wayne witnessed when he saw his parents gunned down in that alley or when Peter Parker learned his Uncle Ben had been murdered by a burglar he could have stopped. It’s such a huge mythic moment for Archie. I think we have to play it, and I think we have to see what happened to Fred in real-time, almost.

Does this mean Molly Ringwald will return as Archie’s mom?
Listen, I love Molly Ringwald as Mary. The world loves Molly Ringwald as Mary. I’m going to do everything in my power to get her there. I think Molly had a good time, so I think she’ll be wanting to come back and have fun with us again.

Hermione warned Fred he should sell. Then Fred was shot. Should we assume Hiram is responsible for the shooting?
That’s really interesting, especially since Hiram sent those goons to trash Fred’s site. But also remember that Hermione in that episode also fired a bunch of Serpents. I think what we’re going to discover is it might have been a random robbery, and there are a lot of possible suspects for who shot Fred Andrews, and, hopefully, the reveal will be very, very surprising.

Speaking of the Serpents, Jughead basically accepts membership. Is season 2 like Bad-Ass Jughead?
Yeah, kind of. Referencing The Godfather, there’s that great shot of Diane Keaton looking at Al Pacino as the door closes. That’s kind of the last moment for Betty and Jughead. She’s looking out, and he’s put on this symbol. You think if FP was the king of the Serpents, is Jughead the crowned prince of the Serpents now?

Will we meet Jughead’s mom and sister next year?
That’s a really good question. It’s definitely a possibility, and we’ve talked about it. But right now there’s nothing definitive. We’ve worked up through episode 3 or 4, and so far they haven’t shown up, but that doesn’t mean they won’t.

What about Betty? You’ve been teasing Dark Betty this whole season. Will that grow in season 2?
Absolutely. I think a lot of season 1 was Betty trying to control or suppress her dark side or contain her dark side. A lot of season 2 is about her owning it and harnessing it. Without saying too much, the idea of Jughead joining the Serpents is very provocative. Even more of a Riverdale subversion would be the perfect girl-next-door joining the Serpents, so that’s something we’re going to play with as well!

That’s so Sandy in Grease!
For sure!

Will we meet Betty’s secret brother next season?
That’s out there for sure. Like a true student of Chekhov, if you introduce something, you better pay it off. In a weird way, the Coopers’ story for the season always has to do with family. The first season obviously had to do with Polly. I think it’s safe to say that this mysterious son that Alice gave up might be coming to Riverdale, or Betty might be seeking him out.

What can you say about the Blossoms?
With Cheryl and Penelope, my idea is now that Clifford and Jason are dead, it’s just Penelope and Cheryl living in that half-burned mansion which is a little like Crimson Peak. It’s going to be a very dark, twisted version of Grey Gardens or Whatever Happened to Baby Jane?

Aaaaand we have a special treat: a deleted scene from the finale. Watch it above!

Lars’ Head (Steven Universe)

We have now reached the final and latest episode of Steven Universe and the “Wanted” event and despite this episode still ended without a huge resolution and on another cliffhanger; this was a great episode that revealed the many possibilities that could happen in the rest of the season and possibly the show, in general! Let’s look right into “Lars’ Head”.

After Steven brought Lars back to life from the last episode, Lars isn’t so sure why he’s changed in hue and doesn’t know how to feel, despite being freaked out.

The Off Colors noticed that more robonoids are coming after them to which they block their entrance to keep them away.

Steven feels that they’ll still keep coming if he’s in Homeworld, so he tries to come up with a new hiding spot, even though if the Off Colors stay, they could still get caught.

Lars isn’t sure if he’s a zombie and Steven notices that his hair starts to glow, similar to Lion’s mane!

Steven has an idea to go inside Lars’ head, but isn’t so sure to do it again, calling back to The New Lars, but Lars, this time allows him to do so.

Steven enters inside Lars’ head and sees he’s inside Lion’s Dimension and finds another tree, next to where Rose’s belongings were and ends up back home on Earth! Steven is so happy to be home and starts to eat some food and packs some to give to Lars, even though he feels he should tell everyone else he’s safe.

Steven ultimately discovers that Lion had a similar fate to Lars’ being that he died and was resurrected by Rose.

When Steven comes back to Homeworld, he explains to Lars and everyone the complicated story of how Lion’s mane and dimension works.

Rhodonite asks about where the juice box came from and Steven tells them that even though the Diamonds attacked Earth, there are still Gems on Earth, as well as lots of food.

The Off Colors are convinced that they’d like to live on Earth, but the only problem is trying to get Lars back to Earth as well, which Steven tries to grab his arm into his head, which fails.

The Off Colors refuse to leave without Lars, but Lars tells Steven that he’s better off going back home, as he’s in a lot of danger in Homeworld and that he needs to keep the Off Colors safe.

Steven doesn’t want to leave him behind, but Lars tells him that staying is what he wants to make as redemption for all the times he was mean to him.

Steven gives one last hug to Lars and returns back home, with Greg, Connie and the Crystal Gems warping back with Pearl stressing out and only just noticing that Steven came back and the episode ends with everyone hugging him and relieved that he’s okay.

So this episode just gave us some reveals and some interesting directions the show will take after these events.

Not only does Steven have an easy way to get back to Homeworld from Lion, but Lars has to stay and protect the Off Colors, even if it means not going back home for a while!

I’d also like to note that this episode was the first time a new storyboarder came to board with Jeff Liu, being “Madeline Queripel” who was a long-time storyboard artist on Regular Show. I definitely felt her work on this episode felt very fitting and on-model to Steven Universe and I’m wondering if she will end up being Jeff’s partner or this was just a one-time gig that she got to do, as Colin Howard went back to character designing after Season 4.

The shots of inside Lion’s mane & Lars’ head was very beautiful.

Another big reveal is that Lion was originally an Earth lion that died and Rose Quartz must’ve helped revive him to become pink and make a dimension!

I’m hoping we get to learn even more about how Rose revived Lion or that Steven will get to find out more about him and his dimension, as there’s still a chest that needs to be opened.

So even though Steven is back home, I just wonder how he’ll tell Sadie what happened to Lars, as well as everyone else how they can bring him and the Off Colors back.

Just like the last episode, the Off Colors were all enjoyable, especially Padparadscha making more late predictions like “Steven’s back!” or “I predict Lars will change in hue. What a mystery!”

I really hope they find a way back to Earth with Steven, as these characters were so likable and I definitely want to see them interact with Garnet, Amethyst and Pearl.

A great attention to detail, as well as the character development I’ve mentioned about Lars is how Lars and Steven finally share a hug together, which Steven tried to do previously, but Lars rejected it. I can’t remember the episode name he did that, however.

Moments like this, really make the characters feel so wonderful.

And that was the final episode Steven Universe’ Wanted and even though this episode didn’t give proper closure, it still means we still have a lot to look forward to for the rest of Season 5 and a “possible” Season 6!

I can definitely say we’ve been off to a fantastic start of the season and we’ve just now ended off with a very heartfelt moment!

I just feel sad that we may be on hiatus once again, for a bit, but hopefully we get some more information soon.

At least I have the wonderful soundtrack to listen and look forward to, as I really hope we get to hear more songs in future episodes, which is what I’ve been missing since That Will Be All.

Until then, see you all for more Steven Universe soon and bingo bongo!

Happy WEEK SIX of Hannah’s Sunday Reading List! I have the biggest list thus far for you guys this week - 20 fics are on it!! I’m going to have to use a cut for this one, hahaha. I’m calling this my ‘hunting week’ because I searched around a lot for these fics - please, writers make my life a little easier and tag me in your stories please!! If you care for my sanity, that is.

Here’s what I’ve been reading this week:

Keep reading

fancybasementpersona  asked:

Hi! Do you have any completed Bucky x Reader fic recommendations? Thank you!

Hello! Ahh, yes. I have many favorites. You can sift through my Fic Recs list here! Aside from that, here are a few personal favs:

@avengerofyourheart has a great series called Accidents Happen, and a great array of one shots that go from angst to fluff and everything in between. Definitely check out her masterlist, it’s incredible. Faithfully and Cheap Thrills are personal favs of mine, and she also writes for a few other MCU characters too!

@buckyywiththegoodhair wrote a series called Catch Me that made me swoon and squeal like a child (She’s also writing a series called A Lesson in Love and while it’s not finished yet, it’s totally worth the anticipation.) SHE ALSO WROTE ONE SHOTS BASED OFF OF HELPLESS AND SATISFIED FROM HAMILTON AND I’M STILL SCREAMING ABOUT IT

@howlingbarnes is amazing. Yuanafen is one of the first Bucky fics I ever read and it was incredible. Her writing is stunning, definitely give her a follow.

@marvel-ash Listen. Listen. In an Instant is the air I breathe. Ash has this great way of leaving cliffhangers that maKE YOU SCREAM AT THE LAPTOP SCREEN HOW DARE YOU

These are just a few, and I’m sure there are many many more that are buried deep in my likes (get on that shit, @staff) Anyway, the best way to see what I like is to check my fic rec tag :))

Can I just say how beautiful The Walking Dead is? Not only it features great storylines, cliffhangers, action, zombies and stuff, but also GREAT characters.

It represents minorities. Right now we have three leaders: a straight white man and HE’S NOT A CLICHE, is a good, brave guy who respect his people and deserves the world, we have a POC (aka Ezekiel the super hot and smart and funny and loving and kind and caring King) and a woman, my Queen Maggie Greene-Rhee, who lost EVERYTHING and still shines and fights and smiles and helps everyone. A white man, a black man and a woman.
We have Rick and Michonne, an interracial couple who is the MAIN couple in the show and it is a beautiful and healthy relationship.

We have a lot of gay characters and it’s the bloody apocalypse. In a regular show we’re lucky if we get one or two characters and here they managed to give us FIVE queer character, Tara, Denise, Aaron, Eric and Jesus (and I’m pretty sure that Alisha is going to be with Tara somehow I HOPE).

There are a lot of POC characters, GREAT characters, not just guest stars: Sasha,Michonne, Rosita, Morgan, Ezekiel, Gabriel, Tyreese, Noah, Bob, T-Dog.

We have a LOT of interracial couples. I mean, we had Glenn and Maggie. Rosita and Abe. Abe and Sasha.

We have strong independent women, we have Maggie, CAROL (an abuser survivor who became a warrior and she’s precious and strong and brave and I love her), Sasha (I’m gonna miss her so much holy shit), Michonne, Rosita, Tara, Enid and the list could go on and on.

Even Daryl, who could be a total cliche, is actually a very good character and he has a good heart, he’s loyal and brave and sensitive.

It’s a bloody zombie!apocalypse show and it still manages to represent all kind of people, all the minorities and it features amazing and not stereotyped characters.
The Walking Dead is beautiful and is precious and I love it and I WANT SEASON 8 RN.

anonymous asked:


XD I feel like I’m slowly getting back into that one? Recent talks of Bill/Hadrian has been getting me thinking about CLV again.

Onion is Yellow Diamond (Onion Gang)

Onion is Yellow Diamond. For real this time.

Let me explain. Look at this image from the latest episode, Onion Gang:

Remind you of anything? Perhaps if I turn it horizontally…

Oh. Shit.


So, this is undeniably foreshadowing (or a really elaborate red herring). If we’re presuming these four characters are the diamonds, then Squash is PD, Onion is YD, Soup is BD, and Garbanzo is WD. One thing that is kind of strange is the apparent break in logic: Garbanzo has a green mask. But in all reality, this is probably because white on white doesn’t work very easily.

As the episode goes, Steven meets the three other kids (Diamonds), where the ambush him in the woods. They build a car (spaceship) and go out of the woods (Seemingly Homeworld) into the city, passing the Crab Shack.

Undeniably diamonds in the background of them in the car, this is space travel.

They swerve and crash into a park bench connected to some shrubs and a tree. Earth.

Then White Diamond falls…

Nearly dies…

But Pinto, the small pink baby, revives him…




Then Onion (Yellow Diamond) nudges Steven and winks like it was a… joke?



They pull out this jacket, and all get in (indicating fusion, obviously) – I’m not too sure about this, but here are my thoughts:

  • They pass the Crab Shack again, now fused
  • They fool Suitcase Sam and we learn he doesn’t need an eye patch?
  • We then learn that they have been collecting pictures of residents of Beach City.

And a few things come to mind.

  • They are now in outer space.
  • Eyeball?
  • They are collecting gems (pictures) at Homeworld.

So at this point, Steven doesn’t seem to have a role in this analogy; Rose’s role is being played by Pinto. However, this next segment, he becomes Rose: Onion draws 5 tracks for the bug race, leaving out Pinto.

Soup (Blue Diamond) takes off his hat and each of the kids (Diamonds) take a bug. What do these bugs symbolize?

Well, they race them, and Steven (Rose’s) wins… Then the other kids give him a sledgehammer and want him to kill it – and he can’t. He responds: “Bugs may be weird, but I don’t want to kill one…. I’m going home”

Bugs… are humans? Rose doesn’t want to kill them, and goes home.

Onion (Yellow Diamond) comes to Steven, forces him to go back to the forest (Homeworld), where he learns that the other kids (Diamonds) are leaving for the summer.

And Onion – Yellow Diamond – stays.

So far, we have only seen one diamond in the present. Yellow Diamond on the intercom. All other appearances have been in the past.

These are very convoluted without context, but either this is a very elaborate red herring, or the best hiatus cliffhanger of all time. What do you think? Let’s solve this.

TL;DR: Onion Gang was a huge allegory to the Great Diamond Authority and Rose, and possibly the greatest hiatus cliffhanger ever.

The episode starts with a recap of the most adorable face in the history of anime.

Also heartbreak. Lots and lots of heartbreaks.

And this is where we ended last episode, which was honestly a great cliffhanger.

Now we gotta see how All Might reacts to this. I don’t quite have a grasp on his real personality since I feel most of his “persona” is a mask he uses so he can be a good hero, and his small form might be the real one.

Which, considering he’s running out of time, is what we’re about to see.

Okay listen.

I can’t make this justice with just a screenshot, the way Midoriya moves his hands when he’s sad or flustered is fucking adorable.




What even is this show.

Interesting comparison between what he believes a true hero should do and what every other hero we’ve seen (aside from All Might) actually does.

While the heroes from the first episode were super helpful and yes, brave, it was clear that at least some of them were mostly in it for the money and recognition. Which isn’t a bad thing! I mean if you’re gonna save people’s lives it’s not selfish to ask for a little retribution from the government and a bit of fame.

But All Might and Midoriya are different, at least from what I’m seeing. All Might is indeed very famous and, I presume, extremely rich, but I feel that’s not why he’s doing it. Just like Midoriya describes, he’s always with a fearless smile even in bad circumstances. It’s the reason the boy admires him so much.

So it’ll be interesting to see what response All Might decides to give.

Okay this was pretty funnny.

He just exploded into a smaller form of himself. And hearing Midoriya freaking out is great.

sorry for the absence! i’ve been playing sly4 all day… i’m gonna make more icons ‘cause i still feel like i don’t have enough, and then i’ll try to get to those starters ♡!!
