that is totally how that scene went down

Alright kids. It’s been awhile, so it’s time to buckle up for another one of my Patented Mob Psycho 100 Essay/Meta posts (patent not pending).

As much as I love and appreciate how Studio BONES adapted Mob Psycho 100, one of the things that always bothered me is how they adapted 100% Sadness.

Y’see, in the anime, it’s a fairly quick buildup. It’s clean and it’s pretty.

Mob wakes up to rubble where a school once stood.

The beautiful Ghibli tears roll down as he realizes what’s happened.

He curls up as the emotions well up within him.

And he unleashes 100% Sadness as sparkling tears cascade down towards the audience.

It’s so sad, right? Super sad! Poor Mob!!

But in the manga, things are….slightly different.

Mob wakes up not sitting neatly with his feet folded underneath him, but instead sprawled out on his hands and knees, hair in a frenzy from his psychic powers still being active. He’s not looking straight ahead at the remnants of the school, but upwards at the destruction still going on in the sky above, like some kind of giant looming over him. Mob doesn’t just look small. This shows how he feels small.

The narrator explains Mob’s thoughts in further detail here. It’s not just “Mob wakes up, realizes he Hecked Up, and feels Really Sad about that.”

This is Mob’s trauma, a thing that has made him feel helpless and alone. It’s the thing he hates about himself. And while the audience can certainly infer this from the animation alone, hearing it (or reading it, in this case) helps compound this fact and draw it out. It’s not just sadness Mob feels, it’s many, many complex negative feelings he’s been storing away inside himself for 4 agonizing years.

His percentage meter slowly ticks up and the thoughts and feelings build up–

And he begins to bawl.

Not dainty fat dollops rolling neatly down the middle of his cheeks. Not cutesy sparkly anime shoujo tears.

This is some absolutely unrepentant ugly crying.

This is Mob feeling so overwhelmed, that the careful control he’s practiced his entire life isn’t just gingerly removed, but absolutely smashed to smithereens. His tears pool and drip out of his mouth like drool. He can’t even fathom how gross it must look because he is so overcome with built-up negative feelings that he has never allowed himself to express.

His percentage meter peaks at 100% and then–

It’s panels like these that really tick me off when people say ONE isn’t a good artist. Because in comics, good art isn’t just drawing people realistically or with proper proportions. Good art is utilizing the space in a panel to convey meaning and symbolism to help tell the story.

Mob isn’t just curling up into a ball here. He collapses into a bow before his own powers that overwhelm him from a story standpoint and also overwhelm the panel.

Rubble cascades down from the sky, mimicking his own tears and the likes of rain. It is so powerful, it encroaches past the black border at the top of the panel, dominating the scene. The weight of it and his own sadness presses him into the earth.

This panel, this expression, shows how not just miserable this whole affair has made him, but how absolutely terrified he is. Mob at this point has been under Reigen’s tutelage for 4 years.

He never knew any other espers growing up. Reigen was his one hope at learning to control and stop this aspect of himself, and he is currently watching that hope churn amidst the remains of the school, shredded to pieces all around him.

The contrast of the calm emptiness of the bottom left only intensifies the sheer chaos of his powers at work around him in the top and right.

This is Mob’s duality.

The anime ends the scene with Mob watching as he neatly mends Teru’s school back together, his back turned to the audience. It’s nearly identical to the panel in the manga, but there are several key differences:

1. You can still see the cracks and tears in the school, despite Mob fixing it

2. Mob has his back to the school, turned away from it.

3. The lightning flashing in the background.

Let’s break these points down.

1. The cracks in the school stood out to me the first time I read this scene. What it portrays is that although Mob certainly “fixed” the school, he can never totally “undo” what has just happened, no matter how hard he tries. The narrator even makes this point–this was Mob’s “meager” attempt at fixing the situation. Even if he did somehow manage to repair the school to functionality, there will no doubt be remnants of damage and evidence of the destruction it went through. Contrasted with the anime where the school is neatly glued back together, it feels at odds, and even contradictory to the narrator’s previous insertion.

2. Mob is not looking at the school. He does not want to face the aftermath of what he’s done. He can try to mend the situation all he likes, but ultimately the end result is the same: He failed to change. In yet another spectacular use of composition, the destruction directly looming over his head in the background is a perfect mirror to his current mental state. Where Mob expresses, things are broken.

3. The grey overcast of the anime coupled with the soft strumming of the guitar carries sadness, but in a cathartic way. (After all, crying is known to help bring back chemical balance when our brains are overwhelmed with emotion.)

The manga, by contrast, feels foreboding. The framing of the scene shows Mob just below the chaos of his powers returning the school to its prior shape, him large and especially prominent, as opposed to smaller and meeker in the anime. Most importantly, there is lightning flashing in the background. There are no gentle sunbeams peaking through after a harsh rain, there are no soft painterly textures in the clouds.

It is still dark. The clouds are not soft nor comforting. Lightning flashes to signal continuing storms and danger. It is a warning:

This is not the last time we will see such cataclysmic destruction.

Analysing Naruto’s sexuality

You know, people love to criticize SNS by saying that they’re totally straight, but let me tell you how they’re not.
Starting by Naruto.
Jfc, because I’m stating he likes boys doesn’t mean he can’t also like girls.

BEWARE: reaally long ass text post.

When he was still a kid, in the first part of the manga, Naruto wasn’t very mature. Althought he was shown as having romantic interest in Sakura, it was actually pretty clear that his preocupations were very far away from anything related to sexuality. What he really cared about was simple things such as pranks and instant noodles.

Naruto leaves the village to train with Jiraya at the most intense phase of the adolescence (who has been through it, knows what I’m talking about) which is between 13 to 16 years old. Sexualy speaking, this is the phase where everything changes, body and mind. Being so, when Naruto returns, it’s expected that he’d have a bit more sexual maturity, showing more interest in girls (you know, curves). But no. No interest for girls, the first thing he says is that he sees no difference on Sakura. (So sorry, Cherry Blossom) I mean, he’s supposed to like her, right? He should’ve been stunned by her more womanly-like looks or something, but we get no reaction on that. Sakura herself feels clearly different about him, as is shown by the way she looks at him and by blushing. Naruto, on the other hand, is again worried about joking around with Konohamaru showing off his sexy no jutsu (to which he shows no reaction).

On another hand, the first person Naruto points out to be beautiful is - guess who? Sasuke. I’m not even joking.

He’s extremely upset about Sasuke being “replaced” on Team 7, much more than Sakura, who tries to show that Sai is, afterall, somewhat like Sasuke, not only in his ways but also in looks. Now, see, she said nothing about being pretty, she said they’re kinda alike. And what Naruto says? “They’re nothing alike, Sasuke looks tons better! No… Wait, he doesn’t look as bad”.

Oh my god, are you kidding me? No, wait for it, and he even repeats that! “Ohh noooo, that guy can’t get even close to Sasuke!”

Can I freak out already? No, seriously, he gets pissed off and starts babbling on how Sai can’t replace Sasuke because Sasuke is so much more handsome. Not only that, but he also does the tipical tsundere thing of “i-it’s not like I find him pretty… b-baka!”. Naruto, pls, just stop talking, bby, you’re making it worse.

And then, since Naruto can’t get along with Sai at all, Yamato decides to take the team to a bath house to relax and get a bit closer. As we know, it’s very common in Japan to go to these bath houses, like Naruto did before with Jiraya and such. Even so, withouth any aparent reason, the scene starts with Naruto already awfully embarrassed to be there. It would be normal, giving the situation, if he was suspicious or angry to be forced there with Sai, but not self-conscious the way he’s shown. He’s not avoiding Sai specifically, but with his eyes down, the face really blushed and almost entirely underwater, in a clear sign of insecurity, as if he’s trying to hide himself. If public baths are normal, why would he be like that?

That’s when I started thinking: afterall, he had just been through the hardest phase of puberty, right? This means that, while he was away, he probably went through things like first erection, wet dreams and first signs of sexual attraction (for what I researched, most boys go through that at the age of 12 to 15).

Now let’s be honest here, if in almost three years sulking for his bestie who looks so good (as he said himself), starting to develop the natural sexual desires of the adolescence, he didn’t dreamt or thought of something a little sexual about Sasuke, it’s a lie. He could even be 100% straight and had spontaneously fall in love with Hinata and all that jazz, but he was 14, 15 years old, training with the only purpose of reaching for Sasuke (you can check, he came back saying he’s stronger to save Sasuke, not to become Hokage or anything else), going through a naturally confusing phase of self-discovery and sexual development, it’s only natural that, going through that with his mind completely focused on someone, he’d start questioning his own feelings. Also, who knows what other hot muscled ninjas didn’t come across his path during those two years and a half? The thing is: aparently, he’s violently embarrassed to be naked surrounded by naked dudes (not much help from Sai, who made fun of his little buddy moments latter. Btw, thanks, Sai, for this vital contribution. Without you, we’d never know Naruto had a small equipment)

Afterwards, it turns out Sai was a spy for Danzou who served as a bridge between he and Orochimaru. In the middle of that, he said he had been with Sasuke and he’s not the person they used to know anymore and says he can’t understand why Naruto and Sakura go so far for him and, aparently calm, Naruto explains that he used to hate Sasuke, but found out he felt happy around him. He was smiling and all was okay, but then he pauses his speach and closes his eyes real thight, as if he was on pain or something. When he opens again, it’s clear there’s a terrible feeling. He breathes and it’s gone, he’s back to his normal self, it was just that moment. It’s clear from that, even talking about Sasuke is difficult for him, just in thinking how much he misses the guy already affects him physically. This reaction in particular caught my attention because I suffer from anxiety and, many times, when it attacks, I feel my throat closing, it gets hard to breathe, my stomach goes all raging butterflies and sometimes I get even sick. The point is: my first reaction is exactly this: I close my eyes tightly and take a deep breath. That’s feeling is kinda common among people who had been through a recent break-up too, I got a lot of friends who also have this frequently.

Finally, after almost three years apart, it’s time for Team 7’s firt reencounter. I guess it’s valid to remember Naruto’s first reaction here was freezing. He mutters Sasuke’s name and stays staring at him in silence for a while like a dummy. And then, when Sasuke says he doesn’t care about them anymore, Naruto starts yelling on why didn’t he kill him when he had the chance. If you don’t care about me, why did you let me live? He’s been rehashing that, he has this little hope he’s holding onto and he needs to know Sasuke cares about him.
Now, here comes something fun, Sasuke just showed off how he can move at the speed of sound, but he announces out loud that he shall kill the guy and starts pulling his sword in slow-motion while three ninjas, all perfecty able to step in, watch the whole thing happen. But let’s not talk about how Sasuke was begging to be stopped, let’s talk about how there’s some guy leaning on Naruto, about to impale him with a sword and he’s just paralized there. His only reaction to being threatened with a lethal blade is to complain it wouldn’t be worth to become Hokage if he wasn’t able to save the guy about to murder him. He doesn’t even blink, he’s just completely frozen there like “omg, he’s touching me”.

Now this one hurts me. After all the sacrifice to get there, years waiting and training restless for this moment, they fail and Sasuke leaves once more with Orochimaru. The look on his face kills me, I swear, and then he breaks down, sobbing, crying his heart out. I find interesting how much he lost it at this moment, since even when Jiraya died he didn’t sob like he did back here. I don’t mean to say Jiraya’s death wasn’t a terrible pain for him, in fact it even made him understand Sasuke’s pain and need for revenge, but he somehow knew how to deal with it, unlike failing with Sasuke. The death of someone so dear hurts badly, but whenever is about Sasuke, he just loses all control, like when he went kyuubi mode just because Orochimaru reffered to Sasuke as ‘mine’.

After the failed reencounter with Sasuke, Naruto becomes really upset. Then we get this cutesy scene in which Sai, all changed and wanting to befriend the other guys, realized Naruto is feeling down and remembers you’re supposed to hug people when they’re sad. And then we have this completely reasonable and not even a bit exaggerated reaction from Naruto to the hug, that is to freak out and push him away screaming how he’s totally not gay. I mean, as gay akward that Sai might be, he really didn’t seem to be trying to kiss Naruto at all, he was clearly facing another direction. One thing is to say “dude, get out, don’t hug me”, another completely different thing is “iM TOTS NOT GAY, WHY U THINK IM GAY? IM NOT”

Kinda around this point of the story, the same happens do Kakashi. He takes Naruto to train and, seeing him all grown up and learning things so fast, he says “you know what, I’m starting to really like you”, and guess what? The boy freaks out histerically and starts yelling how he’s totally not into guys and, omg, ew how disgusting.

It’s like they say: You got nothing to fear, if you have nothing to hide. No one rational and confident of his own sexuality would have this kind of reaction for so little. I mean, nor Sai or Kakashi actually hit on him, at least not openly (yes, I’m looking at you, Sai). As a fujoshi, I can state I would have never seen any malice in Kakashi’s words if wasn’t for Naruto’s overreaction. That gets me thinking, his encounter with Sasuke probably messed up with his insecurities real bad. No fujoshing here, but if he was already worried about that, finding out the little Sasuke he knew turned out to be that stunning man with abs-showing, badboy style, arm around him, close enough to smell his scent, that intense staring when their eyes first met… I mean, he’s shaken by that. It’s logical. This is the moment in which his the most insecure, as he shows with his reactions. He’s almost certain he’s into boys and is terrified that someone might notice.

And then we have this not-gay-at-all moment, right after Pain’s defeat (in which Hinata confessed her love for Naruto) and he’s laying on his bed. Thinking. Of Sasuke.

There are no arguments, man, one thing is to miss your friends and think about them, another thing is to lock yourself in the bedroom and spend the whole night long awake with your face burried on the pillow sighing for someone. When you spend the night locked up in your bedroom, face burried on the pillow, sighing for someone, that’s love. I mean it, to lay in your bed sighing for someone like “oh, I wonder how are you? Do you still think of me? What are you doing now?” this is the kind of thing people facing a breakup do. Check out the melancholic look on his eyes. This is not even the only time he’s shown laying awake thing about Sasuke, there are at least three other moments like this one, although this in particular has more relevance since this is when he found out Sasuke had finally killed Itachi and this got Naruto more worried about how he was feeling and if he was on pain.

“Why Itachi said that? Why me?” Well, bby, Itachi said you remind him of his ex-boyfriend, he’s obviously shipping you and his little brother. And well, by the way Naruto spoke of Sasuke to him, it must not have been difficult for him to understand what was going on, Itachi knows the deal. Anyway, I believe he then had some time to think about everything, Sasuke, his own feelings and sort things out.

So far, Naruto had the excuse that he had been doing all that because he promised Sakura he’d bring Sasuke back, but when she asks him to forget about that, he shows that this isn’t right. He’s doing that for himself. HE needs to save Sasuke, it doesn’t matter what Sakura feels or felt, he is not doing this for her or anyone else, as he clearly states. This is a problem between him and Sasuke and he’s pretty steady about that.

After he commited several murders and joined Akatsuki, Konoha decides Sasuke must be executed. After all, he is a criminal who shows no remorse, has no loyalty to the village and doesn’t care about anyone there, right? Sure, even Sakura and Ino, who have been in love with him all their lives comprehend that their feelings can’t change that. He is a criminal and has to be put down.

But not for Naruto. The simple ideia that Sasuke has no salvation and, therefore, must die is enough to cause him such a breakdown that he passes out.

Again, everything comes from a very intense difficulty to breathe, it’s a crisis I know very well, although I happilly never passed out from it, but it’s an anxiety symptom. Just the thought of a world without Sasuke is too much for him to handle, he panics.

And then they meet again. Differently from the first time, in which before he even knew how different their powers were he tripped and fell before reaching Sasuke, this time around Naruto already gets there very sure of what he wanted and with all the words at the tip of the tongue.

They only exchange one attack and, with that, they could see each other’s hearts. This is really relevant. The first time they fought, they couldn’t see the other one’s heart, as Sasuke yelled at his face, he couldn’t see how Sasuke felt. But not this time, this time they did see and he says that.

“Did you see what was in my heart?”, he’s talking about this feeling he has for Sasuke, he wants Sasuke to see how much he means to him, that he would never give up on him, 'cause his love is too strong. And now he knows Sasuke’s feelings too, since he lost Jiraya and found out the story behind the Uchiha massacre, he understands what Sasuke wants and his reasons and that’s why he’s ready to die with him if necessary, rather then simply dragging Sasuke back by force, like he says then.

More than that, the security he shows at this point, differently from what things were all the way until here, demonstrated that he was probably accepting the nature of his feelings. He understands what he feels and is getting more used to it.

During the war, they keep teasing each other about little things only they understand (in a way that reminds me a lot of Marceline and PB, from Adventure Time, who are confirmed ex-gfs). I guess this speaks for itself. “You know I like you, I know you like me, I’m saving them 'cause I love them, you know… Like you did. For me. Back then. And just now. Stop pretending you don’t care, I know you better then that”

Also, let’s talk about how Naruto stated that he had been training this jutsu in particular more then even his rasengan, lately. In case you don’t remeber, he especifically showed Konohamaru that the proper way of training that jutsu is searching for good reference, to which he used porn magazines. Now, Konohamaru’s reverse oroike no jutsu featured Sasuke and Sai, who are both well known for being the ladies’ preference around Konoha, so you can clearly see where he went. Naruto, on the other hand, had all those fabulously hot guys who were never seen before with adult muscled bodies and charismatic looks on their faces. I wonder where he got those references… I mean… He used to train for his regular jutsu by sneaking into bookshops and taking a look into porn when he was a kid, now think about that and try to see where this logic goes to.

Appart from how much I cried with this shit, I find quite interesting how each person makes the interpretation of this particular part as it suits them better. Also known as “hurdur, he’s talking about Hinata because the one like Kushina would be Sakura, but he doesn’t love her anymore”.

Ok, let’s start by saying that, nope, because Kushina didn’t say “marry some girl with the same personality as me”. As Naruto said himself, “mom told me to find a girl as great as she is” and I, as a rational human being, understand by that “a girl with good character, honest, who truly loves you”, you know? A decent person who isn’t some evil bitch who would make him suffer, I think it’s absurd to fight over who is more like Kushina, no one told him to marry his mother’s clone.

Anyway, what I really wanted to say is that he didn’t say “I found a nice girl” ou maybe “I found someone, but she’s a bit different from mom” or even “I will do my best to find a nice girl”. Nothing about girls. What he does is “mom said this… and… uh… well, not everything is going according to what she wanted”.

This is literally the only part in which he fumbles, stutters and ends up not really saying anything.

Like I said: each person makes their own interpretation of this, you know what was mine.

Well, I’m not saying anything about the dialogues between Naruto and Sasuke on those last chapters, because we all know very well what they said to each other, so I’m just letting Naruto share his opinion.
Sasuke’s one and only.
Not fucking Sakura.
Not anyone else.

Now, from the ending, we could get two possible ways of seeing what happened in-story: either, since he had to put Naruto with Hinata for the sake of the $$movie$$, Kishimoto changed his mind as to make Naruto oblivious of everything and too naive too recognize romantic love, which I find offensive for a character who is mostly the love expert of the story and lectured every single mf about love during those 15 years, but that paired up with Sasuke’s guilt, thinking Naruto would be too good to him and deserved someone better, would be enough reason for them to never try and get together. Also fits well with Naruto’s try at explaining his feelings on chapter 698. It relevant to say that, this time around, when Sasuke asked what he meant by “friend”, he no longer said anything about feeling like a brother, which shows he understood how different from that his feeling truly is, but by saying how he doesn’t know how to put it in words might signify he was still clueless about it being romantic love. Another probable thing, I find, might be that Kishimoto left enough timeskip for something to happen between the moment when Sasuke came back to Konoha from Naruto starting to date Hinata. They had a fight or just talked about everything and decided (mistakenly) that it was for the best if they got married to the girls, to which I can think of several reasons and the fact that Naruto was frowning when he went to say Sasuke goodbye and return his headband and by Sasuke saying that he didn’t thought Naruto’d show up to say goodbye at all makes me think they had a fight over Sasuke leaving again and that there’s more to see that we first might think. I particularly like to believe of this second theory. It works either you consider The Last as canon or not (since it’s not Kishimoto’s writing, I don’t), as The Last happens two whole years after the events of chapter 699, giving plenty of time, and since NH is terribly undeveloped even in the movie and Naruto doesn’t really seems to care that much about Hinata until he gets caught up in the creepy scarf-genjustu thing and gets brainwashed, not making the whole “Naruto loves Hinata” thing very plausible.

So I was inspired by this post and I always love love LOVE behind the scenes stuff for TV series that people draw, so yeah! I had to do something with it. Take it and do what you want with it! *falls over*

(I guess this qualifies as an actor AU? This occupies a weird space so yeah. @ackerchou, I blame this all on you.)

  • Shiro and Zarkon are super good friends off-camera. They are always posting pictures on Twitter and other social media platforms in costume, commenting on how “today was a good day, got to beat up this dude” or “Black Lion Paladins have to stick together #vld2016”. Shiro is super notorious for biffing takes because he’ll start laughing and Zarkon is shameless in totally screwing up scenes by making him laugh with stupid faces. It happens a lot during the super serious moments.
    • Shiro is also known for fangirling over Zarkon, considering how long he’s been in the acting business and his famousness. Pretty much everyone fangirls over Zarkon.
  • Zarkon hates his outfit; he’s always tripping over it and has fallen over in a few scenes. He fell into Haggar once and they both went tumbling down off a green-screen set. Everyone was fine but his cape had to be modified so he could walk around in it.
  • Keith and Lance are that pair of actors who are super tight off-screen and do pretty much everything together. They post stupid Vines, crazy pictures, ALS challenges, cinnamon challenges and anything else you can think of. They love interacting with fans and are super shameless about fanning the klance flames; they’ll post pictures of them almost kissing or posing seductively with each other. Both of them snag pictures of each other when the other isn’t paying attention and will hack each other’s accounts to post stupid posts. They wander around a lot wearing Voltron merchandise.
  • Lance is heavy into improv; it’s gotten to the point where the writers just say “Insert Lance commentary here” because he will totally go off-script. Some of his best moments come from doing things off the top of his head.
  • At least every actor has done something like this with Hunk. He’s so big and strong that it’s hard not to give it a try. Even Zarkon did it (complete with the caption “I’ve got a leg up on your paladin”); that post went viral within minutes. He’s not only the heart and soul of the lionsquad but of the cast and crew as well.
  • Allura takes pictures of everything and with everyone. Her dressing room is filled to the brim with pictures of times on set that she snagged or selfies with the crew and cast. A lot of them are her kissing their cheeks or making duck faces. She also records her singing songs or dancing with the crew during down time and posts them online. Her favorite picture is with the original Allura actor from the 80’s who came to visit the set of the new TV series.
    • A memorable moment was during a take with her and Zarkon and they totally screwed it up. While the camera will still running, they decided to do whatever and confessed their love for each other and Zarkon ran off the set with Allura in his arms. They both jokingly commented later about how they really feel like their characters are having an affair with each other and that the entire plot line of the show should be changed.
  • Haggar is actually super young and pretty but she gets a ton of makeup and prosthetics to make her ugly and witch-like. Both she and Zarkon have the most prosthetics to put on and it takes a couple of hours to get them to look like the evillest duo of the universe.
  • A lot of wide shots are just miniature landscapes, like the Castle of Lions or the Garrison, and the cast will often take pictures next to them or act like Godzilla getting ready to stomp on them. All of them have pictures where they’re leaning up against the legs of the lions, which are really the only things that aren’t CGI of them.
  • Pidge is like Orlando Bloom where she’s forever making funny faces in the background during takes and no one notices it until the final edit. She gets bored easily and is the known prankster of the cast. She also squirrels food everywhere to eat between takes and forgets where she hid them sometimes. So when the prop guys come through and dismantle everything, they find fruit snacks, fruit, nuts, chips, and pretty much anything else you can think of.

Supergirl episode 2x13 was a very weird episode, to say the least. What’s even weirder is that Mxyzptlk (I totally copied and pasted his name) wasn’t the strangest thing that happened during the ep. I mean, skipping the whole shooting at Supergirl scene, where you can clearly see the people behind her that didn’t give a shit about the gunshots - which, I mean, I know America has a huge gun problem, but I don’t think that’s quite how it works -, or the flying car that went on fire immediately after hitting the ground (my friend has been in a car accident where the car ended up upside down, and she would be dead if cars were so easy to explode)… Leaving all of these things behind… what the fuck was that?
Don’t get me wrong, good for Winn who now has a girlfriend (#winnforthewin!)(<– yeah, don’t comment that), although she seems fled from Buffy: The Vampire Slayer and her whole entrance and then their relationship development was freaking rushed (they might as well proposed to each other in perfect Mr. Mxyzptlk style at that point), and awesome for Sanvers, even though they hadn’t so much screentime this time either (which they kinda promised to us, but I guess Mon’Ew closeups were somehow more important…), but the whole episode felt like a patchwork thing to me.

I have to say that Kara’s happiness is my happiness (and damn, how incredibly gorgeous she was in this episode), so I’ve sadly accepted that is extremely unlikely that she’s gonna end up with Lena (what a waste of chemistry, though… ugh, it pains me), but that said, Flann’El is really such a poor choice. In this episode in particular he behaved like a total douche, all testosterone a no synapses, just straight up trying to punch the guy, practically demanding his execution and then challenging him to a duel for what? Kara’s hand? In which century does he think they are??
I didn’t like that he was completely ignoring the fact that Kara is a strong woman - like… super strong -, perfectly capable of handling a random idiot - although provided with insane powers -, and he kept whining about this guy, while doing and saying such stupid things, only because he felt threatened. This is such typical of straight man, the pulling up a chaos because their pride is hurt or threatened and they have to show to the girl that they’re strong and bla bla bla. This is so wrong in any scenario, but in this one? In this one it’s nuts. That’s Supergirl, you idiot! She stops planes and missiles! She’s bulletproof! She flies, for Rao’s sake, she ain’t a damsel in distress and she told you! You can fill me with all the reasons why he behaved like that, like that he cares so much to Kara that he lost it, but that’s still incredibly immature and he ain’t a teenager: he’s supposed to be an adult.
I just hate to see women having to keep the men on the right path ‘cause they can’t keep their shit together by themselves and they have to be schooled all the time.

Anyway, zero Lena’s mentions in this Valentine’s episode. We had Luthors for the real Valentine’s Day, so I’ll pretend that’s enough…

Make it work -Jide

hoodminter said to simplysdmn: Hello, I love your imagines and if your request are still open could you and imagine where you are a musician and have to kiss someone in your music video but JJ won’t let it happen so the director eventually get JJ to play the love interest. Could you include the fans reaction? 

A/N: Hey babe, thank you so much and I hope you like this. 


My face was being poked and prodded for about 3 hours and I was already falling asleep. I kept waking up when I was told to open my eyes so they could fix something or if they needed to apply something new. All I needed in that moment of time was a cup of some sort of coffee to wake me up and keep me buzzed for the rest of the day. 

I looked over at where my manager was at and wondered if I could take a break because I couldn’t handle being sat in that chair any longer. Instead I saw JJ with a Starbucks cup in his hand. I smiled at the thoughtfulness of him which in result I got scolded at because apparently smiling can ‘crease my makeup’. I rolled my eyes and motioned for Jide to come over when he caught a glimpse of me.

My manager shooed and the artists away to get their own break as I got my own. He handed me my coffee and smiled.

“A very special coffee for a very special lady.” He leaned down and gave me a kiss. “How are you?” 

“Very tired. I’m completely knackered.” I sighed and pouted. 

“I know babe, it’ll be over before you know it. Drink up! You’ll need it.” I offered him a large smile and carefully drank the coffee as quick as I could.

“Thank you Jide.” The team came back and said I had to get dressed. I said my goodbye before I was dragged away.

I slipped into the dress with the help of the kind costume designer.

“Was that your boyfriend?” Lisa said.

“Yeah, I told him not to come because we were going to be in here for so long and he’d get bored.” I laughed, shaking my head. 

“You know how boys are. Have you told him about the kissing scene?” I widened my eyes. It had totally slipped my mind to tell Jide at all.

“Jesus Lisa, you’re only after reminding me. I totally forgot. He’s going to kill everyone, oh God.” 

“I’m sure he’ll understand. You’re under so much stress, sometimes things will slip your mind and there’s nothing you can do about it.” She calmed me down and we walked out of the dressing room. She then nodded and I went pull JJ outside.

“JJ, I need to talk to you for a couple of minutes.” He nodded and took my hand as he walked me outside.

“What’s up? Everything good?” I nodded.

“Yeah except the fact that I may have forgotten to tell you something very important that may or may not get you angry.” He gave me a confused look but motioned for me to continue talking.

“Well in the last scene we have to do, we have to kiss. I have to kiss the model that they have gotten for the music video.” He stayed silent for a couple of seconds making my heart rate increase by a mile.

“Y/N, out of all things you’ve forgotten to tell me this is what you choose.” He laughed, making me calm down slightly.

“So you’re ok with it?” I smiled making him give me a weird look.

“No, they can swap me in for that guy.” I huffed.

“JJ that’s not how it works!” He shrugged walking towards the door.

“I’m going to making it work.” He smiled broadly, knowing I was getting frustrated.

“JJ.” I dragged his name out and he mocked me in return.

“Jide, they’re gonna get so mad. Please don’t do this.” I pleaded.

“Let them get mad, if they’re smart they’ll realize there’s going to be a better chemistry if I play the love interest.”

“If I get in trouble, I swear I’m never talking to you ever again.” I pouted walking around him and back into the venue. Lisa walked towards me immediately and asked what he said.

“He’s not mad but he wants them to swap out the model for him so there will be a better ‘chemistry’ or in other words he’s going to get jealous and will probably knock the poor guy out.” We both laughed at the mess he was getting himself into. We looked over to where he was and he was looking very annoyed. I assumed things weren’t going his way. He looked over at me looking for help. I shrugged and sipped my coffee.

“Olajide, I’m sorry but we cant do that. We already have the model booked we can’t let them go right now and we’ve paid them in advance we can’t let that happen.”

“I don’t care, I’ll pay back what you paid him just to make up for the cost.” My manager pulled the team away and had a very quite discussion. He walked over to me and huffed.

“I told you, you never listen to me.” I poked his chest.

“You’re annoying.” He pouted.

“So are you!” I giggled. They called him over and began talking quietly. From the look on his face, I could tell that his plan was going forward. I looked over at Lisa who was shaking her head, laughing.

“Start on him.” My manager yelled, making a bunch of the makeup and hair team drag him to a chair. I was also pulled from one side of the venue to go over the plan and what we were doing for the last few scenes.

“Alright Y/N, you just have to dance there and JJ you walk in. Dance for a couple of seconds and then the kiss. Good?” We both nodded and walked back to our designated spots. The music started playing and did what we were told. I started swaying to the music and, JJ pushed through the extra’s that were playing as other people in the nightclub. He reached me and put his hands on my waist and danced. 

We danced for a couple of seconds before he pulled me in for a kiss. It was long and passionate but it wasn’t sloppy. For a split second, I felt embarrassed. I remembered that everyone was looking at us but that embarrassment faded away when he pulled me in even more and leaving no space between us.

“And, cut!” The director yelled. “That was perfect guys! We’re all wrapped up! The video will be emailed to you just to see if you like it just before it’s sent to production to see if you like it. Yeah?” I nodded and walked to the dressing room to get changed into my comfortable clothes so I could go home.

JJ and I said goodbye to everyone before going to get dinner.

“Hey guys! So today I am joined with a very special guest. If you haven’t been living under a rock, I have a girlfriend and her name is Y/N Y/L/N.” I waved at the camera.

“She is indeed a singer and she just released a banging music video to her song which will be linked down below. Tell them what we are doing today!” He looked over at me and made me giggle.

“JJ if you keep looking at me like that I’m not going to concentrate.” He laughed and just smothered me with kisses making me laugh harder.

“OK, OK! We’re reacting to you guys reacting us. I was told specifically not to watch these in advance by Jide so these are raw reactions. Is that good enough for you?” I asked him playfully. He nodded in response and clicked onto the first video. 

The first reaction was happy thoughts and that they really liked the video in general and that the kiss was amazing. The second reaction was a couple dancing along to the song and they just reacted to the song not the actual video which was ok for me because I could tell it was an enjoyable song for others. The last video was 2 girls sat in front of their computer and they were already screaming at the intro of the video.

“Oh my God, she looks so fucking good.” They yelled. They sang loudly along with the songs and imitated the dance that I had learned for the video. Then the bit where JJ had to appear came up and they freaked out.

“Fuck! It’s JJ!” One of them screamed letting the other one off. I laughed at their cuteness and couldn’t wait to see the reaction when they saw me and JJ kiss.

“No way, they aren’t going to kiss are they?”

“If they do, I’ll actually cry.” The kissing scene appeared and one of them burst into tears.

“This is actually goals.” I looked over at JJ who looked utterly confused with what was happening in front of him. I laughed at him.

“Well guys, I don’t have a clue with what the fuck just happened.” JJ sighed, laughing slightly. We finished off the video and he said he’d start editing tomorrow.

“I think I should be in your music videos if were going to get that kind of response.” He smirked.

“I’m pretty sure the whole team completely hates you now.” He nodded.

“Well, we can make a music video of our own if they wont let me join next time.” He laughed, carrying me to my bed.

  • Teague: So, is everything ready for tonight?
  • Treavor: Oh, yeah. I thought we'd start off with soup and a light salad, and then see how we feel after that.
  • Teague: Not the dinner. You know...
  • Treavor: Oh, right. The poison. The poison for Corvo, the poison chosen especially to kill Corvo, Corvo's poison. That poison?
  • Teague: Yes! That poison.
  • Treavor: Got you covered.
  • Teague: Excellent, make sure Samuel administers it. A few drops in his drink, and then I'll propose a toast, and he will be dead before dessert.
  • Treavor: Which is a real shame, because it's gonna be delicious.

I love your blog! 1st time asking a question.I saw something yesterday that talked about Sam's star on the rise and that they want to portray him as single and available. I find it curious that at SDCC17, Sam and Cait are not positioned together for any pictures(very few) almost like they are trying VERY HARD to have them both single. Where as years past they were attached at the hip. Your thoughts??

Hiii, thank you!! I don’t think they want to push the single Sam narrative anymore (hello, fuckery) but they certainly don’t want anyone thinking or saying he’s with Cait. The whole event felt very different this time around. Granted I haven’t watched interviews or the panel yet but it seems as though most people are treating them like costars and not like loved up newlyweds the way they did in 2015.

I just wonder how they would have behaved if it was just the two of them like last time around. Even though we got some adorable moments, they kept their distance for the most part which is totally unnatural for them. I don’t know if their change in behaviour is a result of pressure behind the scenes or if they’ve decided themselves to try and tone it down but neither of them know how to behave like friendly costars so it’s just awkward to witness. They were so free at CC in 2015 so it makes me a little sad that this weekend went the way it did. Other casts from other shows seemed to have a lot more fun and I know if I was a new viewer looking at all the content from them I wouldn’t be too enthused. They’re magic together and it’s shame it went to waste.

anonymous asked:

Mom, there's been some hate over what Marcus says to Bellamy. Looks like we may need to defend our own this season. Please give some advice!

Erin and I had differing opinions on this scene, so we’re both going to rewatch and then discuss at length on Meta Station.  I think the question seems to be, does it feel like it’s a shorthand for the narrative to once again be putting too much of the burden for everything that has ever gone wrong ever onto Bellamy and singling him out as The One Person Who Needs Redemption, as though the writers are being kind of accusatory and decided “okay somebody needs to remind Bellamy that the theme of the season is moving on from fuckups” and they selected Kane to be the person who like delivered that exposition.  That was how Erin and some other people I was talking to on Twitter heard it.  My interpretation of it - although this would be much more clear if Kane had said “we” instead of “you” - was that when Kane says “you turn the page and you don’t look back, and maybe someday then you’ll deserve to survive” he’s telling Bellamy something that he learned the hard way for himself, and that it’s both the narrative effectively closing the book on the “Kane and Bellamy at odds” plot - like saying “okay, these two have moved past their S3 shit and that part of the storyline is effectively done and we’re not revisiting it because they’ve gotten closure” - and also another little Kane/Bellamy redemption arc parallel.

Either way, no one should be giving anyone any hate for it.  Either way, it doesn’t make Kane an asshole, it’s more a sign that mayyyyybe we should be a tiny bit concerned that the writing is still a little muddy around the big question of Bellamy’s shitshow of a 3A character arc.  I really loved it, but I also fully understand and respect Erin’s interpretation of it.  It’s interesting how differently it landed with different people.

One thing that @brittanias told me that actually changes my interpretation of what Kane meant in that moment - which might maybe help recontextualize it in some ways for people who really hated it? - is that she went through the screencaps frame by frame from the prison scene, where Clarke is telling Abby about how much she loved Lexa, and we see Kane kind of do a double-take and turn to look at Bellamy.  I know I was not alone in hysterical squee-flails at that moment like “OH MY GOD DAD TOTALLY KNOWS HIS SON IS IN LOVE WITH CLARKE”, but Brittany showed me the angle of sight frame by frame, and it turns out Bellamy isn’t looking forward and down at Clarke during that moment.  He’s looking straight to the right.  He’s looking at Octavia.  Granted, this is not made clear in the editing - a cut to Octavia’s face would make all the difference here - but what if what’s actually happening in that moment is Bellamy witnesses Clarke’s grief and Abby comforting her, and he’s thinking about Octavia and Lincoln and about the pain his sister went through and his feeling of having been responsible for it, and Kane’s look to him is about that.  So then maybe that parting line is sort of a callback to that and an acknowledgment between them that Kane knows Bellamy is still carrying that weight (disproportionately, tbh, since the narrative pinning guilt for Lincoln’s death on Bellamy alone is bananas) and “you turn the page and you don’t look back” is him saying he needs to leave that behind him.

Anyway, I think this show is complex enough that moments like this can be interpreted different ways by different people, and meta is not a right/wrong thing, it’s a personal opinion thing.  So no one should ever be giving real people hate over dialogue delivered by fictional people, but also be careful about telling anyone else their interpretation of any moment is “wrong” just because they see it differently than you do.  The fun part of this, for me, isn’t bickering over whose fave has the moral high ground, it’s about what makes different people read those moments so differently and how that shapes the way you view the story as it unfolds.

I've always found that Aelin was just as judgemental as Chaol (sometimes even more). I mean, look at all of her relationships with women (Nehemia being exception) - she used to judge Kaltain, Lysandra, Manon and so many others without even knowing them.

Yeah. You’ll get no disagreement from me. Especially not when I wrote a huge analysis of the scene where Aelin beats Manon because of her (and Rowan and aedion) prejudice. People bitch about how awful and “abusive” Chaol was to Aelin and I’m just sitting over here (with the rest of the people who read the same book I did) like “uhh Aelin is not innocent of wrong doing.” 🤔 her character flaws are just as bad if not worse than his. She’s just the main character so people can’t see it/choose to look past it or ignore it. But there are those of us who read the same book you did who totally see how that all went down very clearly. YOU ARE NOT ALONE!

TVD 2x02 Review

1. I really like Paternal Stefan, I wish he and Jeremy had more screen time.

2. I mean they SEEM like a family. “Well today we have a distraction courtesy of the slave driver, Elena. Hello, Elena!” I could see him saying this to his son. I’ve finished watching This Is Us, which I liked for various and really disliked for others but Jack and Rebecca, I could see them being Stelena.

3. “Is Elena worried too? I bet I’m your every conversation” yeah Damon, because you killed her brother.

4. I also like how they’re saying he’s worried he’s going to explode as if killing Jeremy wasn’t an explosion.

5. I forgot that Bonnie was vibing on Carter and he was vibing on Bonnie before he is brutally killed like essentially every black man on this show and all of her love interests.

6. What other show is Carter in?

7. So remember that time Damon killed Jeremy and then remember that time he went to the carnival and put Jeremy in a chokehold because Jeremy was rightfully upset? And remember that time the show treated this as a mild annoyance and made Elena look like a terrible sister and human being for being with the man who did this to her brother?

8. I really like when Paul and Ian stand next to each other because the contrast, like Paul is fucking sculpted its insane, that collarbone?

9. “There is no such thing as combat turtles” “It’s Ninja turtles actually” love Stefan.

10. Ian STOP with the eyebrows, we GET it. He didn’t waggle his eyebrows as Boone right? He just tries to give Damon a thing.

11. I remember I used to love when Caroline pushed Damon down the hell but that is wildly underwhelming considering everything he’s done to her. At least break a kneecap. Or push him so hard, he slams into a wall.

12. Also I like how Damon is the one who sets up this experiment with Carter and Tyler but doesn’t even stick around to see it through? Stefan has to be the one to make sure everything doesn’t end in bloodshed?

13. Also I forget how exactly would Katherine know that Damon gave Caroline vampire blood?

14. “Because Katherine is a manipulative nasty little slut” so are we just not going to talk about Damon’s misogyny? Also, why are we acting like Caroline being turned is the worst thing ever when literally last episode Damon killed Jeremy? And last season Damon tried to kill Caroline and abused and raped her? AND he turned Vicki and sent her over to Elena’s house for fun? And he literally just compelled a guy to keep going at Tyler just to see what happens. Like Katherine is actually pretty low-key compared to Damon’s shit, guys.

15. Wasn’t there a school carnival the night you staked Vicki? No, it was a Halloween party. Already the writers are forgetting their own canon.

16. Bonnie going around being a sounding board to everyone’s problems and no one has asked her anything about herself. Cool. 

17. I also kind of love how both Stefan and Elena protect Caroline, like Elena has her front and he has her back. Seriously, Mom and Dad of the group.

18. Stefan helping Caroline in the bathroom is still one of the sweetest scenes in the series.

19. “Bonnie, it wasn’t his fault” no but like basically everything else is, he deserves to die, fam.

20. Totally glad that Damon nearly got burned alive.

21. “I have a doppelganger who is hellbent on destroying all of us.” HOW? Katherine turned Caroline, shitty, yes, but like that’s kind of she’s all done right now. She just went to the wake and pretended to be Elena fo five minutes, calm down.

22. “But killing you, what’s it going to do?” Jeremy, if you had just killed Damon then Tyler wouldn’t have died, Aaron wouldn’t have died, nameless innocents wouldn’t have died, the world would’ve been a much better place if Jeremy or Bonnie just killed him.

23. Damon and Jeremy “bonding” because their fathers hated vampires makes literally no sense. They don’t even SAY anything.

24. Still think it’s totally cute that Stefan wakes Elena up by kissing her and she’s jut like “oh hey, what time is it?”

Thanks for reading!

That guy.

That guy.
Sebastian Stan /OFC (Camila)

Sebastian’s girlfriend made an impromptu visit while he was away filming the bronze right after the sex scene ™, he obviously had the tattoo (Which he haven’t mentioned about) and she couldn’t stop laughing at his junk. Hilarity assured

Warnings: Sebastian’s junk, a lot of gimme that gold references and some kissing, light smut. Fluuuuuuff-ish


“Hey, you come here often?,” Camila said leaning on the wall besides the table where her boyfriend was eating. Sebastian looked up and a smile spread wide in his face as he grabbed her by the waist and pull her on his lap and kissed her softly.

“I didn’t know you were coming,” He said as he place little kisses in her cheeks, she laugh and plant one final kiss and get up before people in the restaurant started staring. She smiled as she flagged the waitress.

“Neither did I, I missed you so I came.” She shrugged and Sebastian laugh grabbing her hand and moved his chair closer to hers.

“I’m glad you came, even though, babe” He said and kissed the back if her hand. “I just started my two weeks break, I was going to surprise you.” He said with a smug smile and Camila stared at him and then shrugged with a smile.

“I would had still come, like I say I missed my little cute dork.” Camila said leaning over and pucker him quickly in the lips and Sebastian smiled pulling her for another kiss. The waitress interrupted and Camila ordered a pizza, because she was sure Sebastian was going to eat with her after she noticed the chicken breast with a salad that he had been eaten for fucking ever all the fucking time.

He needed his pizza and she knew that.

“God, I love you.” He mumble while taking a slice to his mouth and she smiled while chewing.

“Are you talking to me or the pizza?”

“Both.” He smiled with his mouth full, his cheeks were full of food and he looked so darn adorable that she had to sigh like a schoolgirl.

“God, I love you too.”


As soon as the door clicked behind, they were on each other tearing down clothes outta the way and trying to get to the near cushion surface.

Sebastian pulled her shirt off and he lay her down on the couch and lean on to kiss her collarbone while she bury her fingers into his hair making a mess of it.

“I missed your hair.” She mumble and he hummed against her skin and placed wet kisses down her breastbone. Sebastian had his hands spread under her breast and slide down her ribcage until they reached her back and unclasped her black lacy bra and take it off and throw it out behind his head.

“And I missed your tits, fuck.” He groaned and he squeeze them together and bury his face between them and kiss, lick and nip them making her let out a soft moan as she bite her bottom lip; that encouraged him even more and he gently nip at her nipples and then suck her hard.

“Fuck-take it off.” She urged him pulling the collar of his shirt and he do as she told, totally forgetting about the tattoo. She noticed—of course she noticed. The blue and red lines of a ribbon under his belly button catched her eyes as he kept ravishing her tits, she tilted her head and when he tried to move up and kiss her, she noted how the lines went under his pants. “What the fuck is that?” She asked dogging his lips and Sebastian looked down and groan putting his forehead against her chest.

“It’s for the movie, the-the sex scene.” He mumble catching his breath.

“You already filmed that?”

“We finished it this morning.” He answer and felt her hands on his shoulders pushing him off to see it better, Sebastian sat on his heels and Camila looked it better and bite her lip fighting the urge to burst laughing at the stupidest tattoo that she had ever fucking see, she put a hand on her mouth and Sebastian groan again looking down.

“Baby, you got a blue and red ribbon of a medal tattooed on your dick.” She said with a small voice barely holding it together, feeling the building of a laugh in her stomach. She looked at it again and this time Camila snorted and that quickly escalated to a full body laugh as she laid down back in the couch.

“Camilaaaaa!” Seb whined as he faked cry with a smile on his lips letting himself fall on top of her. “I know it’s fucking awful.”

“Oh my God,” She breathed out putting her hands on his hair again and tried to kiss the top of his head as an apology but she couldn’t stop laughing. “Show me!”.

“No way,” He mumbled against her skin and shake his head.

“Sebbie baby, show me. I want to see, hell I want to pose with it and take a picture.” She said laughing even more and pull her cellphone of her back pocket and Sebastian took it of her hands.

“Nope.” He said shoving her cellphone in his front pocket with a pout and lay his head back to her chest looking away from her.

“Don’t pout at me.” She smiled struggling with a few giggles still.

“You ruin the moment.”

“I don’t have a gold medal around my pussy.” She snap back with a smile and he groaned.

“Now I’m that fucking guy, the one that had a tattoo around his dick like a douchebag.”

“You’re not a douchebag”

“How I’m gonna get to the steam room on the gym?” He asked looking up and keep the pout going while he locked eyes with her girlfriend. “You don’t want to even had sex with me.”

“Babyyyyy,” She said and hold a laugh. “I want to have sex with you, when the thing is gone tho.”

“Are you serious?”

“Baby, it’s fucking funny. You know if I laugh I can’t stop,” She said already smiling and out of the blue she remembered that line that Mackie was shouting when they were in the press tour. “Gimme that gold.”

“How do you know that?”

“I can’t believe you tell Mackie about the gold now I understand.” She poked him in the forehead with her finger.

“Mackie didn’t sleep with me.”

“You knew this will happen.”

“Of course. I just forget about it when I saw you ‘cause I missed my girl.” He smiled biting his lips and captured her mouth his his.

“Give me that gold, seriously?” She pushed him off and started laughing again, Sebastian looked at her and couldn’t fight the smile forming in his lips.

“It’s silly, but it’s funny. You’ll love it.” He said pressing a kiss in her neck.

“I need to take a selfie with it.” She said and Bed sigh. “This had to go in Instagram.”

“No Instagram.”

“Yes Instagram. You still own me when you fill your Instagram with my burnt pizza and the time you posted the ugliest-”

“I love that photo.”

“photo that someone had taken of me.”

“You’re beautiful on it.”

“I’m sleeping with my mouth open hugging a pillow with photo of your face stapled on it.”

“The staple was in my forehead. I love it.” He smiled and she groaned. “I’m never taking that down.”

“I want my selfie.” She demanded and Sebastian agreed as he stand up and she grabbed his shirt and put it on. She started laughing when she saw it up close and tug his pants to see how far it goes and noticed something missing. “Where’s your hair?”

“The transfer doesn’t stick in hair.” He explained pushing his hair back, she chuckle and grabbed her cellphone out of his pocket and saw her struggling to take a picture because it just looked bad for whatever angle she tried to take it.

“This look kind of sexual.”

“It’s in my dick, of course it’s looks sexual.” Sebastian said and she laugh, again and kept looking at it and he grabbed her cell phone and snap a picture of her laughing.

“Okay, right. I got this… ” She laugh one more time and grab her boyfriend by the waist and pull her besides her, she make pointed a finger at the tattoo and snap the picture.

As she do her thing on Instagram, Sebastian sat down the couch and she snuggle right besides him, he looked at her with heart eyes.

“You’re one of the reasons I took this gig.” He said out of the blue, the smile still plastered in his face.

“You’re doing this for me?” She asked, amazed as he nod.

“The script was so bad that it got incredibly good and couldn’t stop imagining you laughing at it.” He said and she put a hand in her heart and frown a little with her lips pucker up.


“Really.” He answer and Camila grabbed his face and kiss him, slowly.

“Sebastian,” She Whispered against his lips.


“Why don’t you gimme that gold?” She asked with a smile and wiggle her eyebrows making him let out a laugh and kissed her and while pushing her against the cushion of the couch he muttered.

“Fuck yes, I’ll give you this gold.”

Rivamika Trust Theory(?)

if you’ve read my previous post, you’ll find some redundant points here. Though, I really, really want to talk about their trust in this post. So, that’s what I’ll do. :)

Again, I apologize for any repeats! (Wow, Irony)


1. Family Ackertree

Before I begin with this post, I’d like to display this to clear some air. Wouldn’t want anyone going into this post with the mindset of: “they’re siblings, you satanic poop.” Even though this ship could be totally platonic depending on your mindset. 

So, if the risk of incest was the only conflict for you, maybe you’ll read this?

Honestly, I feel like I should just slam this picture into all of my posts jfc


2. Their Current Development

This point was worth repeating, simply because how hard I’m cringing at those who’re abandoning this ship just because they think this scene sunk it. You’ll go down with this ship, huh?

Transitioning from the beginning of the manga, Mikasa went from full-out wanting to hurt Levi to the current point in chapter 84, of avoiding all injury if at all possible. Sure, I’d imagine she still feels resentment towards him. But she has him pinned down, even holding a damn blade to his neck. Yet, she chooses to ask him for the serum. Politely, too! 

Given the situation, it’s no shocker her face displays a different story. But in contempt of that, it’s just as shocking that despite wielding so much power in that very, very stressful moment, she lets go of her previous intentions of violence and makes an effort to communicate. Her words are threatening but if she wanted to hurt him, she would’ve done it by then.


3. Levi’s Trust in Concern for Mikasa

But Levi and Mikasa hate each other, wtf!?” <– No, no. That right there? We do not tolerate that here. That’s a major no-no. 

This chart itself is hopefully self-explanatory, without even a timeline needed. But that’s not the point here. I’d like to brief his trust in her. This has to be my favorite point by far.

Reflecting on chapter 30, look at how spontaneous Mikasa was. Levi witnessed this first-hand. In fact…

He was unfortunate enough to realize just how painful her need to protect her brother was. I believe this moment shattered any potential trust he could’ve had in her. However, he had just officially met her. She had no reason to be trusted, solely because he hadn’t begun molding her character yet.

Right here. This is, in my opinion, where it all began. 

Mikasa had been scolded on her priorities, on endangering her teammate. Levi’s come to the realization of just who she was and who she needed to be for the sake of herself and her team. And for the first time, she followed orders that didn’t concern Eren as the priority. She didn’t go after the Female Titan. She didn’t follow her desires. Instead, she followed her captain.

There’s several moments like this, Mikasa beating herself up, throughout the manga, including asking him about the very leg she injured! 

This is what Levi’s worked for in terms of Mikasa. He wanted to trust her. But first, she needed to learn to trust herself. He needed to know he could rely on her.

And here we are. The Ackerbowl. 

After everything that’s happened, this wasn’t unexpected. I would’ve been upset if he fought back, but he didn’t. He didn’t fight back because he finally trusts her. 

He fought every single titan outside the walls and lived, making it to the walls with the last amount of gas he had left. I wouldn’t blame him for being weak! I mean… If it weren’t for this scene, I would’ve believed it.

It’s easy to blame an adrenaline rush for this. But seriously? I would think having a blade threatening to decapitate you at any given second would give you the same rush. But what do I know?

Their whole relationship had been building up to that moment. Like I said, if she wanted to hurt him, she would’ve done it. But she didn’t. He trusted that everything he’s been working towards, in terms of shaping her character development, would help him, trusted that he could lay there and negotiate. He trusted what he’s learned from her, that it’s better to reason with her than fight her. He trusted that he didn’t have to result to hurting her.

Overall, this was a pretty small scene in the manga. Seriously, it only lasted less than a few pages. But regardless, it motivated me to make this medium-ass post..because that one, single scene of her surprised by his “weakness” sparked my curiosity. I feel like there was so much going on in that chapter that the little things get ignored.

But bottom line, I feel that he wanted to trust her throughout the manga. Until that point, he could only show his concern for her.

This is really just my take on it. I’m not sure how well my point went across here. Sorry, I’m aware that I missed a lot of crucial points that could’ve backed this up… but I’m running on no sleep. :)

Looking back, I can see some flaws in this, so I’m just going to go ahead and label it as a theory. Or maybe just a little ramble? Either way, I don’t know. I need to sleep. Lol.

  • D.O: *smirks*
  • Producer: Well, for some reason EXO-L get a kick out of you all making out with each other, and we're gonna put it in the show so who wants to do it?
  • Baekhyun: I'll do it with Chanyeolssi
  • Producer: Chanyeol is the main character and has to mantain his hard, cool guy image so that would be counterintuitive. You can do it with Kyungsoo or Sehun
  • Chanyeol: *raises hand* I vote for Baekhyun
  • Producer: Thank you, Chanyeol...
  • Baekhyun: *high-fives Chaneyol*
  • Chanyeol: *continues smiling*
  • Producer: Now that we've established indeed Baekhyun will be doing it...
  • Chanyeol: *high-fives Baekhyun again*
  • Producer: Sehun or Kyungsoo?
  • Sehun: I'll do it
  • D.O: *smirks*
  • Producer: Okay great, Sehun go lay on the couch and you two go so we can start the scene.
  • Baekhyun: *asks producer* Am I allowed to jump on top of him?
  • Sehun: yes
  • Producer: No, Baekhyun do not jump on top of him, just calmly mount him.
  • Baekhyun: *salutes producer* aye aye captain *mounts Sehun and begins eating face*
  • Producer: No, Baekhyun you don't actually have to kiss him
  • Sehun: it's okay
  • Baekhyun: *continues eating face*
  • Producer: *rolls eyes* okay lets start filming...

Can we just agree that this is how this scene went down?

Just adding to the fire imagery, people. Don’t mind me.

I headcanon that Stan would totally take this up as the most expedient method of shaving from now on.

A really THIN argument to why Mor could already be pregnant at the end of ACOMAF

For @proteancharmed @shyvioletcat @throne-of-omg-the-feels @thefandomlifeisfab and anyone else who tagged me in the ACOTAR3 baby pinterest pin post!

So this is NOT a solid argument nor is it substantial enough to be a theory, just some things I’ve been looking at.

There are some random scenes where Cassian asks Mor and Azriel where they went the night before and we all think it’s just him being a buffer and them going out with other people. But what if they are buffering him, cuz they’re scared to hurt his feelings? Also, let us not forget that Azriel is THE SPYMASTER. So if he doesn’t want you knowing his business, I doubt he’s gonna leave a trail.

Some of the scene/lines (there are more but these are the ones that come to mind) that could maybe be used to support a behind everyone’s back Moriel affair are as follows:
