that last screencap is just for kicks

screencap from @kingsmanhart; sorry @ripgalahad. wrote this disaster in like twenty minutes so it’s probably not great but there you go


surprises.

Of all the bad habits Eggsy wants to kick, this one is the worst.

He’s seem to have become fond of the penchant for self-inflicted misery so he’s found himself back in Harry’s bathroom far too many times than we wants to admit. Usually midday, when the sun is golden and shining through the small window–just like the last time Eggsy was able to stand face to face with the man. See him alive.

MAMORU THIS IS LITERALLY THE DORKIEST AND MOST RIDICULOUS THING YOU’VE EVER DONE AND THAT’S SAYING SOMETHING

YOU RENTED A MINI BLIMP. YOU HAVE GIANT DERPY REINDEER BALLOONS AND A SANTA SUIT WITH CHRISTMAS MUSIC. ALL OF THIS JUST TO ENCOURAGE YOUR GIRLFRIEND TO KICK ASS.

HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN PLANNING THIS. DID YOU ACTUALLY BUY THIS STUFF SO YOU COULD UTILIZE IT AT A MOMENT’S NOTICE? OR DID YOU RENT IT FOR THE CHRISTMAS SEASON, ASSUMING THAT THE MONSTER OF THE DAY DOESN’T TAKE HOLIDAY BREAKS? OR BETTER YET, DID YOU JUST WALK INTO A STORE SOMEWHERE AT THE LAST MINUTE AND DEMAND ALL OF THESE THINGS? 

Ladies and gentlemen, our future King.

Oh gosh. This killed me when I watched episode 9. Lucifer is his normal emotionless self when the police barge in, he offers them a bribe and all. And then. AND THEN Chloe appears and Lucifer totally goes into puppy-mode in the space of two seconds. Just look at the screencaps (I suck at gifs, sorry).

At first he’s just surprised. (Why would the Detective be here? The Detective wouldn’t kick me out, right?)

Then he looks so completely confused about why she would kick him out. (But the Detective made me a trustful sandwich? Surely, the sandwich meant something? And she said we were friends, no? :( OH FATHER, we’re probably not even friends then! IT MUST HAVE BEEN A MISTRUSTFUL SANDWICH). And dare I say that he looks scared in the second pic?

Then he goes into defense-mode in the last two pics (Whatever, been here before, I’ll just play it cool), but he fails miserably. When she asks him what’s going on he opens his mouth, goes full-fish, and can’t say anything. If his reaction in this scene doesn’t prove how much he loves and cares about Chloe then I don’t know what will. (I mean, maybe if he died for her or something…oh BUT HE DID.)

And the parallel to the ending of 1x12 is so obvious it hurts.

- Stand down. This fight is over. I owe the Avatar my life. Her power is beyond anything I could ever hope to achieve. I’ll accept whatever punishment the world sees fit. And Su, I’m sorry for all the anguish I’ve caused you and your family.

-You’re going to answer for everything you’ve done!

But like what the actual fuck though?

I get it, Su is mad. Everyone is mad. Kuvira is a “horrible” person. But again… what the actual fuck. This woman is suppose to be a daughter figure to her. She just gave a sincere apology and surrendered. She willingly let them handcuff her and accepted all the punishments that will come her way. Yet Su decides to remind her that she’s gonna pay for every little shit that she’s done even after Kuvira apologized to her specifically.

Look at Kuvira’s face in the bottom screencap! That is not the face of the Great Uniter. That is a face of a child who just realize what they did was wrong, admitted to it, apologized and is still being bashed for it by their parent. I get that you have to punish them but there is a fine line between punishing and kicking someone while they’re down. Su kicks her while she’s down. She didn’t have to add the whole “you’re gonna answer to everything you’ve done” because Kuvira just fucking said she was going to! Kuvira is pitiful in these last few scenes and Su still breaks her down more.

And again, my frustration isn’t about Su being angry at Kuvira, it’s about how she treated Kuvira and how she treated Baatar.

Look at her face when Baatar is worried about his family not welcoming him back, she sympathizes and comforts him - as a mother should. But when Kuvira apologizes to her and accepts her punishments, Su basically restates what she just said in a more harsh tone.

But what kills me is how people are saying that Baatar isn’t as bad as Kuvira. Like what in the fuck. He threw his family in prison too. He built the weapon Kuvira is using to kill. He knew Kuvira would kill. He has said things to both Su and Baatar Sr. to hurt them. He let Varrick “blow himself up”. He wanted this just as much as Kuvira did. Stop pretending he’s any more innocent than Kuvira because he’s not. Both of them are equally guilty as the other. They started this thing together.

That doesn’t matter to Su though. Baatar Jr. is still her son and Kuvira is just another tyrant.

The fact that the bottom screenshot is the last we’ll see of Kuvira and the fact that she looks like that kills me. Because she no matter how old she gets, I still feel like she’s still just a child just looking for a home and wanting what the Beifong children have - unconditional love and respect. Which is why my heart goes out to her.

Do I justify Kuvira’s actions? No. But do I feel sorry for her? Absolutely.

Let’s discuss what Eggsy sees when he looks in the mirror, shall we?

Check out that tough guy facade in his opening scene; how he gives himself a slightly sour once over with a stiff upper-lip that says, “well, I guess this is me.”

Let’s talk about how fast his face falls at the tailor’s when Harry says he sees a young man with potential because Eggsy doesn’t see it.

Now peep the resignation, the disappointment in his eyes, when he realizes he’s right back where he started after being kicked out of Kingsman training.

And finally, let’s have a gander at that last screencap and discuss how the first time he looks in the mirror dressed in his Kingsman armor is the first time we see our boy smile at himself. And it’s not just the clothes (I love the chav outfits as much as anyone and of course subscribe to the idea that he’ll pull them right back on whenever the occasion calls for it), it’s that he finally sees a man he’s proud of looking back at him.
