that much i need a scene like this

So like

I am new to the Jonsa fandom and going through the tag it’s clear that so many people have eloquently analyzed and broken down scenes and moments and that relationship in general, I don’t really need to do that, it’s all covered but I just need to say that what’s impacting me as much as their chemistry is the ferocity of their affection. Like when Sansa contradicts him both in public and private, it isn’t for the sake of contradiction obviously and it is of course to do good by their people but it comes from this desire for Jon to be the best possible ruler, the smartest possible ruler, this desire to help him keep himself alive, which stems from this fierce affection for him. Then you have Jon who will put Littlefinger in a chokehold and fiercely defend her, who will trust her completely, respect her unreservedly that he would do a gesture like have their parents’ room prepared for her or do something grand (although logical) like entrust Winterfell to her because he believes in her and carries that fierce affection. Then there’s the fact that the ferocity of their affection is witnessed in their gazes, their unspoken moments, it’s just so palpable.

To call people fucked up over shipping/not shipping is kinda mean, ain't it? People watch for different reasons, not everyone is invested in the same way you are. I don't ship at all and I'm not interested and id like to agree with the last anon...But it's too aggressive. Besides, sometimes romance is a way to cope with a heavy situation.

AH NO!! that’s not what I meant, don’t take it that way!! I just meant that the plot is getting really heavy and Keith (as well as the rest of the team) have lost someone very important to them. I understand how people wanna ship stuff during scenes like that and I say go for it, you do you. But when it overshadows and ignores the whole point of why Keith needs comfort for example, it kinda gets too much y’know? I’m sorry if you thought I was shitting on people who ship, I didn’t mean that

Yeah its a broken mess but I miss it. ;A; I just gotta do some stuff first, maybe you guys can help?

I need a new motherboard, ram, I need to comission some art work but that will all take a while.

But here’s how you guys can help.

Games.

What games would you like me to play? Suggestions are very much needed, and better if the game is free ;; as the government decided to end my benefits and so saving for a $60 takes 3 months now and I don’t think you guys should wait that long. 


So hit me! What do you wanna see me play? What’s the indie scene like these days?

True she does need to shush. cause I just say she said It's the sort of thing where everyone will be going, "But X would _never_ do that!" that this one was to ingrained into the plot but others were doing it in other scripts but she got them to change those. Has me worried. I don't need it affect Jamie and Claire too much or my love for those characters. I assume X has to be Jamie or Claire for it to matter to us that we'd strongly disagree too.

She’s probably pissed that they made the scene with Geneva not sexual assault. She didn’t like when that was an issue a few months back and wrote this long and disgusting tome about it that made me rage barf and then have a rage hangover for a few, days.

anonymous asked:

I like your idea that the bed scene isn't a flashback like the flashback will be the Magnus cat eyes bit. And the bed scene is the end after they've made up.

i like it very much also… because honestly, then i believe that this is the best malec ep so far. i love the angst right now because its not a stupid “oh we need drama lets make them fight over xy” but its actually real, and a really good conflict that was waiting to happen sooner or later. but. no fans love to see (okay im making an argument against myself because i love the drama but) their ship fight, and personally even if its a good plot, i wouldnt say my best episode for my otp is the one where they didnt made up at the end but left with a bad terms. so this is why i have this strong feeling, that they will solve the angst storyline by the end of 2x18 and how can you celebrate better with a little making up in bed  👀 and btw the gold bed sheet…… i feel it a new thing. listen i feel the flashback vibe around the cat eyes scene and i dont feel it from the promo. if they show us what happened in 2x07 i dont think they will do a night and then morning scene, they just dont have the time frame for just the flashbacks. but if its in the present… i mean, it just makes so much more sense to me 

luke, magnus, and raphael, post 2x17 scene (light spoilers)

Luke goes home. 

He leaves Magnus’ when the other man insists that he’ll be fine, and that Luke needs to get some sleep. It’s patently false, but there’s only so much he can push before it becomes hurtful. And he feels a little wrung out too, like he’s been thrown around in the ocean one too many times. 

So he goes home, but home is just a sparse apartment near the docks, a place to rest his weary head and nothing more. He’s taken a lot of the old stuff he used to have - decorations, posters, the sleek coffee machine he only had for a year - and burned it, because it all smells like Jocelyn. 

There’s a small box in the corner of the closet full of her things. That’s the mourning he allows himself. That’s the box he weeps over. 

For now, he sets about making himself a coffee, on his new, even more expensive machine. He splurged, what can he say. There are pictures on his fridge that he can’t bear to get rid of that he stares at now - crayon paintings by Clary and Simon. If they knew he still had them, they’d instigate a covert mission to come by in the dead of night and burn the drawings, but Luke loves them fiercely. They’re accompanied by photos of them at the zoo, a quick selfie of him with Magnus from some event years ago, a more formal shot of him and Alaric the day they got assigned as each other’s partners, their eyes glinting with amusement. 

He misses Alaric. Sure, he misses everyone else too, but Alaric - was his best friend. Maybe something more, if they’d had enough time after Jocelyn. He’ll never see his friend’s somber, serious smile again though, never get to tell him that he’s sorry for everything he did, for letting him die young. Luke will never tell him that when he’s floundering, when he’s trying to plan for the fate of the Downworld, he instinctively turns to ask his partner a question, and is hit with a wave of misery when he remembers that Alaric is never going to be there anymore. 

A knock on his door startles him out of his morbid thoughts, and he puts his mug down on the counter and narrows his eyes, but relaxes when he smells Magnus’ scent, and unlocks the door to let the warlock in. 

“Misery loves company,” Magnus says airily, waving a bottle of whiskey, “or so I’ve been told.” 

Luke looks at him doubtfully. “You alright, Magnus?” He asks, which seems inadequate in the face of the heartbreak his friend is going through, but he’s got nothing else. Magnus snorts. 

“The ghosts I usually drink with have scolded me thoroughly for wasting an opportunity like this.” Magnus says, snapping his fingers and summoning crystal tumblers. “Irish coffee for you?”

“Why not?” Luke says after a moment, shrugging, and Magnus waves his hand over Luke’s coffee cup, filling it up with extra cream and sugar before he dumps a healthy shot of whiskey in it. “To old hurts.” He says, toasting Magnus. 

“To scars that never heal.” Magnus responds in kind, taking a large sip and then wandering over to Luke’s couch. “Your apartment is a little…lacking.” 

“Most of the stuff I had in here was Jocelyn’s.” Luke takes a seat across from him in the armchair. “I had to get rid of it.” 

“Mm.” Magnus crosses his legs and reclines, his eyes far away. “I did the same thing after Camille, though I suppose it isn’t fair to compare her to Jocelyn, who wasn’t really abusive.” 

“No,” Luke agrees, swallowing a large gulp of coffee and letting the scalding feeling of heat and whiskey ground him, “but she was manipulative. You know that.” 

“You loved her.” 

“Of course.” He looks down at his glass. “I’m not a good man. I try my best for Clary, and Simon, and the pack, but - I’m a very selfish man, and I’ve made the wrong choice before.” 

“You are ten times the man most people are.” Magnus says emphatically, surprising Luke with the intensity in his gaze as he leans forward. “You are not your past, Lucian.” 

“Neither are you.” Luke counters, tilting his head. “Alec means well.” 

“Alec…” Magnus trails off, and laughs bitterly. “I got so used to being with him that I almost imagined that we could just ignore the politics of it all. A Shadowhunter and a warlock. If you can believe it, I just…forgot, at one point.” 

“You didn’t forget.” Luke stresses, because Magnus is an intelligent man above all else. “You balanced it.” 

“I’m not so sure, now.” Magnus stares desolately at his glass. “I feel like I may have just doomed everyone.” 

Magnus.” Luke gets up and goes to sit next to Magnus on the couch, squeezing his shoulder. “Loving someone is not a curse. You know this. You’re hurting, now, and that’s all right. Let yourself hurt over him, but don’t question your ability to lead. Those are different things.” 

“You don’t think I’ve gone too far? Compromised us too much?” Magnus challenges, lifting an eyebrow. “There’s a war coming, Lucian, you and I both know it. Where our people will stand in that is almost entirely on our shoulders.”

“Gone too far?” Luke laughs, strained and bitter. “I fell in love with the pregnant wife of a homicidal madman. I followed that madman. That can be your marker for too far, if you’d like.” 

Magnus looks at him, astonished, and then the corner of his mouth twitches, and then he’s laughing helplessly, his hand over his mouth as he stares at Luke, shoulders shaking. Luke holds out for a few more seconds before he feels a grin split his face too, and he leans back, chuckling. 

“Not my finest moment, I’ll admit.” He says, and it’s like a tension’s been lifted as they both consider each other. The doorbell rings again, and Luke frowns as he scents the air. 

“Raphael?” He asks, going to open the door. Raphael’s leaning against the door frame, looking supremely bored. 

“I got Magnus’ garbled text about the Soul Sword, a meeting with the Seelie Queen, and whiskey.” He says. “Having a pity party without me, Greymark? I’m almost offended.” 

“And yet here you are, in a dog’s home. Come in, try not to get your angst all over the floor.” Luke says, grinning as he ushers Raphael in. “We’re drinking to mistakes in love.” 

“I have both of you beat.” Raphael says immediately, settling into the sofa elegantly and crossing his legs, his eyebrows raised. “The fledgling, and then Isabelle.” 

“I found your problem.” Magnus points at Raphael. “You just called him the fledgling.” 

“And your other choice was a drug addiction.” Luke feels the need to point out. Raphael grins darkly, taking the whiskey bottle from Magnus and adding some to his own flask of blood. 

“Yes,” He points out, “so I win this competition.”

“You can have that trophy.” Luke scoffs, picking up his coffee again. “God, look at the three of us, worrying about this when there’s so many other things on the line.” 

“I heard your sister is back.” Raphael nods at Luke, who looks away. 

“Not back.” He remembers a little girl with wide almond eyes the exact same as his own, linking pinkies with him and swearing to look out for each other. “Just…around.” 

“Around.” Raphael snorts. “So now, we clean up yet another Shadowhunter mess.” 

“Not clean up.” Magnus has gone somber again, his brow furrowed. “There’s change coming. Whatever happens, however it happens…our world isn’t going to be the same.” 

“We’ll survive.” Raphael’s voice is steady, and sure. He looks at Luke. 

“We always do.” Luke agrees, and there’s still hurt crushing his chest like a wrecking ball, a mixture of fear and anger and loneliness, but he thinks about his family - all the Downworlders, Magnus and Raphael. The Lightwoods. Clary and Simon, who will always be his kids, no matter what they struggle through. 

He will push through the hurt. His eyes flash green; he will survive. 

So, as promised, here’s my list of lesbian movies for all of our lovely followers and the people you want to share it with. I hope I haven’t forgotten any good ones, but if you feel like that is the case, feel free to add movies to the list!

A Killer’s Past & his PTSD

Back again with another analysis; and boy oh boy did this chapter meet and go beyond my expectations. First, let me start off by saying finally. The elusive and highly coveted second floor was finally shown to us viewers - and it was surprisingly mundane (when you compare it to the countless theories we had of bodies being all over the place or weird mommy memorabilia.) The shock of the second floor aside, what really had me Sang-shook - and I think all of us - was Sangwoo’s reaction, because for a while, many of us had debated on whether Sangwoo could feel anything. 

I’d like to explore Sangwoo’s breakdown a little. But please note, all of this is purely speculative, and Koogi’s proven to throw even the most complex theories a curve ball. So let’s get started:

Three words, and a whole world of depth.
“Something’s not right.”

This sentence stuck out to me. This moment burned itself into my mind. Why?Because I feel this was the moment Sangwoo was thrown back into the past, and he no longer just saw Bum on the floor. He saw a familiar picture, a scene in which he’d played a crucial role and was left vulnerable. I feel like this moment was Koogi’s way of mirroring, through Sangwoo’s eyes, what happened to Sangwoo’s mother. 

And I know, it’s a stretch guys. I’m aware that we don’t know what happened. Sangwoo hasn’t told us if he killed his parents, or if something else went down, but I feel this was a hint. I just couldn’t shake the feeling. And I caught a couple of signs before this; the first being Sangwoo’s peculiar way of speaking after he sees Bum’s blood running across the floor. It’s as if he reverts back to a childish state, and I think it carries more depth then being simply in “shock.”

“Make it go back.”

“Let’s get you to bed.”

Sangwoo is not a stranger to blood or guts. He’s killed countless women. He’s tortured and humiliated Bum before, and before this scene he even grabbed his bat to finish Bum off because he was pissed. And that makes sense, after all. Bum did something he could not control, and we all know how much Sangwoo needs his control. He’s not an amateur when it comes to human anatomy. He’s seen Bum bleed. He’s made Bum bleed. Given how he bandages Bum up later, he knows that the way Bum cut himself won’t kill him. So I thought, why the hell would he freak out like this? Why would he waste time trying to push the blood back when he’s clearly been more productive before. 

Instead of taking Bum upstairs immediately to stop the bleeding, he wigs out. The switch is flipped. He cups his hands and brings them together in a futile, almost child like attempt to make Bum stop bleeding, and this really disturbed me.

Then there’s this moment, and it clicked. 

It clicked, because I’ve had this moment.

Without getting too personal, I suffer from PTSD.

I’ve been abused as a child, and I was raped as an adult. It’s something that I battle with everyday, and there were times in my life where something, something so small and seemingly insignificant triggered a memory inside of me that just had me frozen. Just paralyzed with fear.

This frame, right here, took me back to all the times I stared off into the distance during topics of sexual assault, topics of abuse, and for that instant I relived the trauma. And this moment right here is when I think Sangwoo suffers a PTSD related flashback, and relives a moment that’s parallel to his past, which is why he reverts to a childish state. 

Whether it makes you upset or not, the fact of the matter is Oh Sangwoo is victim. He’s a murderer. Yes. A sociopath. Probably. But that doesn’t make the trauma he’s been through any less important or relevant to the person he is today. And while a mental illness isn’t a justification for murder or any of his actions, I think it’s a player.

PTSD: Symptoms may include nightmares or flashbacks

Avoidance of situations that bring back the trauma

Agitation, irritability, hostility, hyper-vigilance, self-destructive behavior. Hyper reactivity to stimuli.

Whether Sangwoo killed his mother, and was reliving that moment, is purely speculative. Whether his father killed his mother is again, purely speculative. But the question he posed to Bum at the end, about whether ‘Bum didn’t love him anymore because he was just like his father… is specific, and definitely mimicking words his own mother told him before. Soon after, he flies into a rage and almost drowns Bum. Perhaps, in the past, after his mother told him he was like his father, Oh Sangwoo flew into a similar fit of rage and killed her on accident… and the scene in the kitchen with the blood is him reliving that moment of fear and regret? Who can say. 

But I’m excited for what’s to come, and I’m even more excited to hear all your theories and thoughts. Bum is definitely someone he can’t leave behind anymore, but whether he loves Bum beyond using him to stave off his nightmares is something I’m dubious about. We’re definitely getting some important information here, and I was impressed with how vividly Koogi captured Sangwoo’s muddled mental state.

This chapter is my favorite thus far, and I’m pumped for what Koogi has in store. Thanks for reading.

#i love this scene so much #clarke is like #why aren’t you looking at me #MOM WHY ISN’T HE LOOKING AT ME #do something #he loves it when we go to suicidal missions together #he said it’s his favourite thing after me holding guns naked #he is usually suddenly thrown by the intimacy of having me so close by now #and bellamy is like #i’m still mad as fuck #but damn she’s fucking cute #i need to stay strong

Mistakes were made. And worse is that you failed to keep the subjects contained and recover them after the initial breach. Now we have potentially dangerous individuals at large. Over 30 of them

And currently we only have budget to surveil one

Hellooooooo Dr. Fitz

masterofenthropy  asked:

Hi HeyWriters! I was wondering: do you have a tip to create a weak point on main characters? I´m making a story, but I´m having trouble since my main character is TOO overpowered. Could you help me with this?

(All of this is written under the assumption your character has superpowers or “special” abilities, so forgive me if you meant a different kind of power.)

I created a character concept when I was twelve. She had all the superpowers of my favorite heroes and then some. As time wore on she gained more and more until eventually my adolescent brain invented logic and realized she was actually ridiculous. Here’s how I depowered this character, who’s name is Ace, without completely ruining her coolness.

Step One:

Don’t be greedy. Any ability that does not contribute to the story needs to go. It’s taking up space that could be filled with credibility. I decided early on that Ace didn’t need most of her abilities, and by the end of the story she only relies on a few to get the job done. Also, if a character can do more than one thing that are all basically the same thing some of those should probably go (invisibility and camouflage, superspeed and teleportation, etc.). 

Step Two:

Apply real-world science. If you try to make your depiction realistic, you’ll want to have an idea of how these abilities might work and how they might not. Of course, you should suspend disbelief for some things if they’re truly essential to your character, but others can be adapted. For Ace there are some powers that only work under the right circumstances, and others that her body rejects or that give her physical pain when she uses them. Most importantly, special strengths come with special weaknesses. Sensitive hearing means loud noises are more jarring or harmful, regeneration means metabolism speeds up and the person needs to eat as much as a body builder. Any superpower you pick out will have a drawback, I guarantee it; if not a physical one than a social one (I’ll get to that).

This scene from The Incredibles is an excellent demonstration of superpower drawbacks.

Step Three: 

Consider how the character feels about all this power and why they obtained it in the first place. Ace was not born with abilities, but over time she chose certain powers for the purpose of defending herself or others. Some of her powers fade away when she stops using them, like any skill you fail to practice, and some abilities she just plain old refuses to use for personal reasons. Some are too difficult or time-consuming for her to master, and some even trigger memories of her traumatic past thus she discards them. This way she has a choice in the matter and her choice is not to bite off more than she can chew or what she doesn’t want in the first place. 

Step Four:

How do other characters feel about all this power? Perhaps some or all of your character’s powers intimidate, frighten, or anger others in the story. One of Ace’s friends dislikes how unstoppable she is, and others are taken aback by some of the things she can do or how she looks when she does them. On the whole, she hides what she can do or picks small things to do instead of big things, downplaying her own power when necessary. How your supporting characters react to the force of nature that is your MC is the most important aspect of her power.

Here’s an example from the X-Men of how other characters might react. 

For additional opinions and advice, read this https://mythcreants.com/blog/five-characters-that-are-too-powerful/ and take to heart its ending line: “There’s only one fix that avoids all the pitfalls of overpowered heroes: refrain from making them really powerful in the first place.”

Yes, Ace is a flawed concept and all the advice I just gave is only a patch kit for that flaw. However, overpowered characters continue to excite readers and viewers alike, so I would never suggest we dispense with them altogether. Just, when you’re getting a headache from how overwhelming your character is, it’s good to consider dialling it all back and focusing on the power of their personality instead.
