“Insane”

Come into the light…

Okay, KH fandom, I’m here to talk about a thing.

A thing that’s bothered me for ten years, but that I mostly kept quiet about, but for some reason now feel the need to discuss:

People who say that Sora doesn’t care about Kairi in KHII, or that he cares about her less than Riku in that game, drive me insane.

I often wonder if we even played the same game.

The main argument is that Sora asks about Riku more, and I agree that that’s true.

But guys… it’s true because for the first half of the game, Sora knew that Kairi was safe on the islands and it was only Riku he needed to find. So of course he wasn’t looking for her in II exactly like how he was in the first game.

And even his looking for Riku is tied to Kairi. “Well, I’m gonna go look for Riku. Then he and I can go back to the islands together. Kairi’s there waiting for us.”

And there are so times that Sora thinks about Kairi even during the first half of the game, like when he’s blushing and thinking about hugging her when he sees Will and Elizabeth together.

Also, does no one remember his reaction to Kairi apparently being in Twilight Town?

“Oh! Sora! Do you know a girl named Kairi?”

“K… Kairi!? I sure do!”

This moment right here is the turning point. Once Sora learns that Kairi’s in danger, he doesn’t shut up about her or stop worrying/looking.

And sometimes he even puts her name before Riku’s when asking about her, or sometimes will talk about here without even mentioning Riku at all. 

Here are just a few examples of that:

Sora trying to comfort Hayner, Pence, and Olette’s guilt about the whole thing: “Hey, it’s not your fault. C’mon, cheer up! Like I can even say that… I gotta help Kairi!”

He even blames himself for her abduction:

Sora - “The King, Riku–and now I’ve lost Kairi again, too.”

Donald - “Don’t be sad!”

Goofy - “Donald’s right, you know! Why, you’re the key that connects everything!”

Sora - “So it’s all MY fault.”

He also does the Japanese dogezu position towards Saïx as he literally begs him to let her see her–and puts himself on a silver platter that way–which is such a big deal, that I can’t even-

But back to what I was saying above, about him talking about Kairi a lot after what Axel did to here, here are just some of those examples:

After Maleficent pushes the crew into the Realm of Darkness… Sora - “Kairi! Riku!” (And yes, he actually puts her name first there.) As Sora opens the gate in that place, knowing that he’ll be forced to leave it soon - “Not yet! I gotta look for Kairi!”

Upon entering The Castle That Never Was for the first time - “Kairi… We’re almost there.” And a bit after that: “Kairi! Where are you?”

Also, backtracking a little bit, but there are moments where Sora thinks about Kairi during this part of his journey that don’t even have to deal with her current situation–like when he imagines himself dancing with her in Halloween Town.

But back to The World That Never Was stuff:

Sora barges in on Saïx and demands, “Where’s Kairi?”

Kairi then appears on that one balcony and shouts out to him, and it’s the cutest thing ever. Sora’s completely distracted and forgets what he should be doing, and just smiles widely at her and excitably says her name: “Kairi!”… before being dog piled by Heartless, for not having kept his head in the game.

After that, Sora sees Kairi fighting alongside “Ansem” and is clearly concerned by it as he watches them. “What’s going on!?”

Sora fights Xigbar, who goes out purposefully confusing Sora, and Donald reminds Sora about Kai. Donald - “Sora! It’s Kairi!” Sora - “Kairi, we’re on our way!”

Next up is their reunion. Kairi tells him, “You and Riku never came home, so I came looking for you.”

And Sora is so completely undone by this–because he feels guilty that he promised he’d return to her with Riku, and hasn’t even after a year; guilty, that she had to come looking for him; guilty, that she got freakin’ kidnapped because of him–that he can’t even look at her. He just turns away and mutters a broken, “I’m sorry.”

But Kairi doesn’t care. And she never blamed him even once, so she just shoots across the room and embraces him–eager to see him–and Sora hesitantly hugs her back, because he honestly doesn’t think he deserves her easy forgiveness. And he thinks she deserves more and better than this crummy reunion, in an enemy’s lair: an enemy’s lair that she’d been held hostage at.

Oh, and Sora freakin’ thanks “Ansem”–who he hates, and makes a point of saying that thinking about all the things he did makes him “really mad”–for saving Kairi. “I’ve got to be grateful for that. Thanks.”

We then get the Sora, Riku, and Kairi reunion. And in a lot of ways, this is a moment between all three of them. Because it takes Kairi to show Sora that it’s even Riku. 

And after Sora’s collected himself from all the emotions he’s just been forced to feel, after having the weight of the world on his shoulders, it’s all three of them talking to each other:

Kairi - “Does that mean… you can’t change back?”

Riku - “This battle isn’t over. And until it is, I still need the power of darkness.”

Sora - “Then… let’s finish it. You’re still Riku, no matter what!” (Everyone, including Kairi, then nods at this.) “So how ‘bout it? Think we can handle one last rumble together? The King’s waiting!”

Donald - “Yeah! Let’s get going!”

Anyway, after that scene Sora seems to have finally gotten over his regret about the whole Kairi thing, and we get some really cute moments between them, such as:

(After the Luxord fight.) Kairi - “You okay?”

Sora - “Yeah! No worries. Let’s keep moving.”

Sora catching Kairi when Ansem’s Kingdom Hearts encoder is blowing up…

…Kairi aiding Sora as he’s trying to convince Riku “you got friends,,, like us!”

Kairi’s voice being what pulls Sora out of the illusion Xemnas puts him in of Memory’s Skyscraper, etc.

Sora promises Kairi that they’ll “be together every day” Sora - “Uhh… yeah!” (And the only reason he reacts that way is because he’s still freaking out about the whole Roxas thing, but he honestly means this and is joyful about the idea.)

Next, Kairi, Sora, and Riku are all ready to go home together… which makes the fact that they get separated here even sadder.

Kairi - “Hey, let’s go home!”

Sora - “Riku… C’mon.”

Riku - “Yeah.”

(The portal closes before Sora and Riku can get through it.) Kairi - “Sora! Riku!”

(The two of them then gasp at this, and if it wasn’t fish face at the time I imagine both Sora and Riku would be looking really sad.)

Anywho, Sora and Riku defeat Xemnas for the final time (LOL to that, says DDD) and are stranded at the Dark Margin. Since it doesn’t look like they have any way out of there, they begin thinking that maybe their best option would be to just “fade into darkness”, and that maybe it wouldn’t even be so bad. But it’s only knowing that Kairi’s safe that Sora even considers this.

Sora - “Yeah. The other side… The realm of light is safe now. Kairi, the King, and the others are there.”

Kairi’s letter to Sora washes up on the shore–and he loves reading it so much, that the sweetest and most meaningful smile appears on his face; and it leads him to being able to open the Door to Light, and getting Riku and himself the heck out of there.

Next, Sora and Riku are finally back at Destiny Islands. And the moment that he sees Kairi and hears her calling his name, Sora is running to her as fast as his feet can carry him. Tripping, and not even caring. (And tbh, I honestly think he probably would’ve kissed her here, if Donald and Goofy hadn’t ended up tackling him.) 

But even after he’s fallen, this is just a really adorable moment–as the two of them smile at each other, and Kairi gives Sora her hand and he finally gives her her lucky charm back (whilst she corrects him that he’s not “back”, he’s “home”).

In the credits, we then see Sora stumble upon Kairi having drawn herself giving him a paopu fruit on the cave drawing. And he just puts his hand over it, smiles like no other, and looks up to the sky.

This game ends with Kairi giving Sora the letter from the King, and him looking it over in a confused manner. And as Blank Points from BbS continues this instance (after Sora, Riku, and Kairi) have had time to think it all over,) we see Sora being heartbroken and guilty again that he’ll have to leave Kairi again (he once again can’t even look at her, after having promised her they’d spend every day together and all). 

But Kairi is a selfless human being, who sees Sora off with her best grin and lets him go–thus easing Sora’s burden about the whole thing.

But clearly Sora doesn’t care about Kairi in Kingdom Hearts II at all, guys. <_<

…Tbh, this isn’t a SoKai post that I’m making here. 

And it’s definitely not a “Sora cares about Kairi more, whatever that means” thing.

If anything, I think he values the both of them equally.

The only reason I made this lengthy post is because SO MANY PEOPLE WHO PLAY KHII somehow get an “LOL, do Sora and Riku even care about Kairi at all? It doesn’t feel like it to me” feeling from it.

And I, personally, will never understand that. And above is all of the reasons as to why that is.

But to each their own, I guess:)

On a side note, I rewatched ALL of these scenes just now, to make sure that I remembered them correctly and was wording the quotes right… and now I’m exhausted from it.

If you’ll excuse me, I’m going to go take a nap.

Alien Reflections : A David 8 Character Study PART TWO

A/N: In my last post…. “I left the movie theater like a lot of people with more questions than answers. I wanted to know more, I wanted to understand what it was that I had just watched. I needed to understand why this movie left me so affected.  Why did this film lead me into a mild obsession of sorts with the character David 8?AND speaking of Mr. David 8… I 1000%, whole heartedly believe he is in love with Elizabeth Shaw.”

And so we continue…


It’s a rather bold statement to make true; but I promise I will elaborate on the “how’s & why’s” I came to that revelation in a bit.  However, there are a couple of things I need to get out first.

In my search for any sort of answers concerning Prometheus, I came across an analysis video posted by a YouTube Movie Reviewer named Chris Stuckmann. His nearly 20 minute “Prometheus Explained” video, CHANGED MY LIFE. Immediately after I’d finished watching it I subscribed to his channel and have never looked back.

It’s a video that I highly recommend people watch. Here is the link to it. [Click Here For Video Link] One can really see the amount of thought, research and care that Chris Stuckmann put into it. All of his future digital essays have the same level of attention to detail and understanding of what makes for good storytelling.

That being said, while I pretty much think that Chris was spot on with his take of Prometheus and to a lesser extent his breakdown of David. Where our viewpoints differs occurs just under the [2:30] mark of his video when Chris states and I quote:

“We see David preforming his daily routines, which consists of learning new languages, watching the classics and spying on people’s dreams.”  

No, in my humble opinion that last part of Chris’s statement is incorrect. David’s not spying on the crew’s dreams, he’s spying on Elizabeth’s dreams. No one else’s just hers specifically.

It’s made abundantly clear upon watching the film that David is particularly fascinated with Shaw. When viewing the scene where he “tenderly” covers Elizabeth’s heaving form with a blanket, I remember thinking to myself “Oh yeah this guy is definitely interested in her.” 

Don’t believe me?  Go back over the movie again and really pay attention to his interactions with Shaw. He’s extremely attentive to Shaw and exceptionally aware of her. Never once does David treat any of the other crew members in the same way as he treats her. 

He even goes out of his way to save Shaw when she and the Not-Tom-Hardy gets caught in the silicon storm. Yet, make no mistake David’s main concern is saving SHAW not Impostor Tom-Hardy, he only does so because Not-Tom-Hardy is there too. I strongly believe that had it just been Not-Tom-Hardy who’d been caught outside, David wouldn’t have bothered. You can just practically feel the undeniable mutual underling animosity between the two ever since Not-Tom-Hardy woke up.

Not even Peter Weyland, his creator truly has David’s loyalty. Yes I said it, he doesn’t.  Okay sure he’s acting at the behest of Weyland, but David has no love loss for the man. It just so happens that Weyland’s endgame goals lines up with David’s inherent curiosity.  Personally I believe he hates Weyland, this is reflected in the conversation David has with Not-Tom-Hardy.

NTH: You think we wasted our time coming here, don’t you?
D: You’re question depends on the understanding, what you hope to achieve by coming here?
NTH: What we hope to achieve? Well, it’s to meet our makers. To get answers. Why they…why they even made us in the first place.
D: Why do you think your people made me?
NTH: We made you cause we could.

D: Can you imagine how disappointing it would be for you to hear the same thing from your creator?

[NTH laughs]
NTH: I guess it’s a good thing you can’t be disappointed, huh?
D: Yes, it’s wonderful actually.

  • (on a side note I’d like to point out that I think David is lying about his ‘lack of disappointment’ if he genuinely feels no disappointment for the reason for his… ‘conception’, then why is David so obsessed with the idea of creating and creation? Just think on that for a while, I will return to it later.)  

It is also seen again in a later conversation with Shaw.

ES: What happens when Weyland’s not around to program you anymore?
D: I suppose I’d be free.
ES: You want that?
D: ‘Want’; not a concept I’m familiar with. That being said, doesn’t everyone want their parents dead?
ES: I didn’t.

So I just watched "I'm Not Ashamed"

Sorry if you’re extremely hypersensitive over spoilers but I’m going to lay this shit down on you anyway.

Firstly, Rachel’s story, for the most part, was told moderately accurate. They had her outfits to a tee and even had her real car which was pretty lit (it was still intact after all these years and was shown in an overly cheesy, sentimental scene at the end of the film). They had her faith down (obvs as it was the whole point of this film even being made) as well as her portrayal of character. However, as a result of this “holy af” reputation, they COMPLETELY stripped Rachel of her typical teenage antics by showcasing her as NOT being a smoker at a point in her life (hinting as if she was anti-smoking) and by also being anti-liquor. They also got the whole prom scene wrong as they made her attend it with an Asian guy and not Nick Baumgart. Furthermore, in this scene, they made Dylan look at her bitter sweetly as he was dancing with Robyn, giving a sense of him “wishing it was her” rather than Robyn, who they also made to appear as disinterested and not wanting to be there with him (which was totally false as we all know- Robyn was the one that urged HIM to go).

Secondly, there were a shitload of inaccuracies with Eric and Dylan (shock). Eric was a steroid abusing, middle-aged, hairy motherfucker in high school apparently who recited all the lines from his journal as he walked through the halls. Eric and Dylan apparently also wore their natural selection/wrath shirts to school every day without fail (probably for symbolism though). However, they weren’t in it as much as I would’ve liked tbh haha, like they legit only had a few lines. Anyways, at the beginning of the film (ish) Eric, Dylan and “Sean” (who really was Brooks Brown) walk through the halls and bag out a disabled kid called “Austin” who Rachel was VERY fond of. Then, a wild herd of jocks decide to rain on their parade as they reach for a bottle of baby oil, grab Eric Harris randomly and throw him through the halls whilst cackling loudly saying “now that’s what I call dork bowling he he he” or some shit. Then, Eric gets up and says “ I’ll kill you!” And the main jock is like “oooOooOooooO so scared” which leaves Dylan to mutter to “Sean” (Brooks) I’m going to make them pay (he has his boy’s back) with “Sean” (Brooks) replying with “ well that’s Columbine”. Then, Eric and Rachel have an interaction as she’s looking at him with pity to which Eric proceeds to shout at her “WHAT ARE YOU LOOKING AT???!!!!?!!!l” to further exemplify his built up, all consuming, homicide inducing RAGE. Also, at the end of the film they try to attempt to “redeem” the jocks of their unscrupulous behaviour by having the jocks accept the disabled kid “Austin”.

To go on further about Eric and Dylan’s inconsistencies (because that’s why you’re on a Columbine blog ma dudes), they pretty much just make Eric this Hitler fanboying Neo-Nazi as he pays attention to Hitler’s ideologies in class and later on in another scene he’s depicted reading a book -wait for it- covered in swastikas. Also, there’s a cafeteria scene which most of y'all have probably already seen. Dylan is apparently obsessed with Rachel: he can’t take his eyes off the glorious, Christian temptress and they share a moment amidst Eric spewing his journal shit whilst wearing his natural selection shirt yet again. This scene also just pretty much makes Eric to be the “ring leader” and Dylan the “follower” who just fuels Eric’s ego by agreeing with him.

Furthermore, the film also aims to depict the deterioration of Eric and “Sean’s” (Brooks) relationship, mainly by picking up a recounted argument that Brooks wrote about in “No Easy Answers” (they also plugged his book at the end of the film I swear but maybe it was just coincidence. Rachel says it while talking to “David” (Richard Castaldo) in conjunction to how there’s no easy way to say that a divorce between parents doesn’t get better). “Sean” (Brooks) was oversleeping and Eric calls him FUMING, demanding him to hurry up and take him to school. They get in a fight and to sum it up, Eric says to “Sean” (Brooks) “I’LL KILL YOU” (edgy) and then hangs up the phone (fuck the natural selection shirt, Reb should just be seen wearing Regina George’s “a little bit dramatic” one).

Another inconsistency with Eric and Dylan (surprise) is where they’re playing video games in Eric’s basement. Dylan pretty much is depicted as kissing Eric’s ass as he says “oh man!!!! Imagine if this were Columbine???!!!” And Eric says really REALLY seriously “why shouldn’t it be?” To this Dylan replies, “oh no way man that’s sick.” This just further propagates that Eric came up with the idea and shared it with Dylan (totally false) and further reinforces that Eric is the “leader”.

The next big inconsistency was Rachel’s speech on causing a chain reaction with kindness. First off, Eric and Dylan weren’t even in that class and secondly, they never even heard that recital but they were depicted to have. Rachel goes on and on about how much of a Christian she is and the camera pans showing Eric and Dylan looking affected. Then, the teacher proceeds to play the iconic “Hitmen for Hire” short film (which tbh had better editing skills than Eric and Dyl’s original one did but it was the 90s when they did it so we can cut them some slack). As she introduces it, the bitch is like, “and NEXT we have Eric and Dylan’s PIECE on how they would change the WORLD”. She legit only goes through it for like a second and Rachel is all squeamish like “oh do we really have to watch this?” To which the teacher states “no we DO NOT HNNNNGGGGH”. Then Dylan pretty much shouts with his “boisterous” personality “and that right there is the BESTTTT WAY TO CHANGE THE WORLD HAHAHAHA PEW PEW PEW” *makes gun motions with fingers*.

Now the funniest thing ever is the scene that follows the “pew pew pew” one and its this fictitious, add-on scene. Pretty much, Eric and Dyl are having this super secret meet up (ooooOoooO perfect for those chicks that ship them. The directors really provided for ALL of their target audiences) on this stairwell. Then, Rachel proceeds to walk up this stairwell and encounters them. Eric gets all mad and gangs up on her “so what’s with this Jesus crap?” to which Dylan intervenes, “yeah think you’re better than us???¿¿?” And Rachel’s all like, “no I don’t think I’m better than anybody. I have to get to class.” Then Eric full on staunches and shouts out “yeah compassion????!!! That’ll work!!!” (Major foreshadowing here kids).

Lastly, we have the scene you’ve all been waiting for: The Massacre Sce- oh wait it’s just total and unequivocal blackness after Rachel gets shot. Realllllly riveting and reallllllly climactic. It literally made me go all Reb after watching it because that’s what I was waiting for! That’s what it was building up to!!!! But it totally and utterly disappointed. In this scene, we have the infamous propaganda painted all over it that has been circling the Columbine archives for far too long now and that is the most overused, shouldn’t-be-recognised-as-fact quote… The question that was “supposedly” always stated by the boys: “DO YOU BELIEVE IN GOD????” I didn’t think they would have it in those specific words (tried to have hope) because of what was depicted in the trailer but they fucking were. The scene starts off with Rachel and “David” (Richard Castaldo) talking about “David’s” parents getting a divorce. He confides in Rachel because she’s gone through it but she has “no easy answers”. Then, “David” sees Eric and Dylan approaching and says, “woah what is this, like a prank?” to which he is replied with by gunshots. Rachel is slain and is gasping in pain and Eric states mockingly, “where’s your God now?” At this point, he grabs her by the hair and says “ do you believe in God, Rachel?” She then says simply “yes” and at this stage of their supposed interaction, Eric puts his gun to her temple and says maliciously, “well, go be with your God now.” After this, the screen goes blank and shows real footage of the massacre’s events and this is then followed by a dramatisation of the flowers being put on her car by friends, family (grieving Craig Scott) and foe alike and also a simulated funeral.

Well, this was longer than I thought it would be but I surely fucking hope it gave someone an insight of what the movie is like without spending a dime; someone who didn’t want to see the film for obvious, understandable reasons. I love you fellow Columbine-infatuated kids. Stay murderous 😉😘❤️

Author appreciation

Today I realized how many AMAZING Coldflash fanfics are out there and how incredibly thankful I am to the people who write them. I know how much time and effort it takes and how little you get in return. 

I know a lot of us love to read fanfics and we even have favorites that we read again and again. And I also know a lot of us forget to comment or just don’t know what to write, or think “I’ll do it later” and then we don’t. 

So here’s a proposition. <33

Whenever you see this post on your dashboard, go back to AO3 and write a comment to the last fanfic you read that you really liked. 
Three sentences minimum. 
It’s not much and it won’t take up more than two minutes of your time! =) It’s super easy and it will mean so much to someone, believe me. 

You don’t know how to write comments or don’t think you have anything interesting to offer? I promise you, it’s easy! =) 
Just tell the author how much you liked it. Tell them what you especially appreciated. A witty banter? Great characterization? A steamy sex scene? A well thought out plot? Emotional drama? Go ahead and let them know how much you enjoyed reading it. Quote your favorite part, if you like. Tell them what it made you feel (and yes author’s love to hear they made you cry like a baby). Thank them for taking the time to write something like this. CAPSLOCK if necessary! ;)  

And I thought whenever you do this - just reblog this post so people will see it and remember to do the same and also write comments and reblog this post.  

Soooo, anybody interested in doing this? =)

~The dark side is how we’ve been living
Let me show you what you’ve been missing~

I just got braces and all I could think was “I can cosplay Kylo from MySpace AU… hella”

Have some kylux. Wish I had friends to cosplay this with me ;-;

@horatiosroom made the au the I can’t get enough of

The Crown (*HUGE SPOILER ALERT* I'm kinda questioning if I should post this now or not*)

Most people probably skip over long posts like these, but reading this may be worth something to this fandom because I love you guys.

It’s a strange feeling, finishing the last book of a series near and dear to your heart right before you go to bed. You just want to hold on to the lasting feeling, and hold the book for a while, melt into the impact it’s made on your life. And then you realize, huh, when I wake up in the morning, will everything just go on?
(^^Did I sound like Eadlyn up there hahaha that’s when u know u binge read.)
As Eadlyn says at the end of the epilogue, “Life goes on,” and that’s one of the major themes of the book, which I really love.

So I just finished The Crown. And I have to say, I really thoroughly loved this book to pieces. I cannot express the feeling this book gives me through laughter, words, poetry or tears (believe me, there were a lot of those). The Fifth Book we had all been anxiously waiting for and making theories about since before Happily Ever After, and probably before we were born, to be honest. Fate brought us into this fandom, and destiny has created these bonds that have turned us into family, similar to the unlikely meetings of Eadlyn and Lady Brice, or Marlee, America and Lucy, or even Eadlyn, Josie, and Neena.

The incorporation of new characters, like the scandalous Marid Illéa was an interesting winding path in the plot. I know some people deeply despise Marid, and he does annoy me, but he only made me love Erik even more. I enjoyed his incorporation. He brought spice to the plot, and I understand why he exists in the story. A very interesting way to add more to the Selection process. I was thinking she could do the constitutional monarchy to resolve the Marid issue, and she did that along with choose Eikko. I couldn’t be happier about that.

The part about Maxon and his father was very interesting, and I’m glad we could find out more about his past. Like seriously, he has a SISTER! But most importantly, that sister is Lady Brice. LADY BRICE. The very person I have been most interested in from the beginning. I love her character very much and I’m so glad Eadlyn and Brice could be united in a new way.

Hale and Ean. I need to talk about this. I feel like a lot of people expected one or the other to be gay, but a lot of people also got down on Kiera for not adding LGBTQ+ characters into her series. Well there ya go. Page 150 will always be remembered, and I wish them the best. That was one of the most surprising and amazing moments of the book.

Josie turned out to be a marvelous young lady. She helped at a time of great need, and soon discovered how to be comfortable in her own skin, and the true responsibilities of being a queen. She really grew into her own in The Crown, and not to mention KADEN AND JOSIE. The thing I love about Kosie is that Kaden thought Josie was beautiful when she dressed in a dress that was her own fashion, not her trying to be better than herself or anyone else. That’s the sweetest thing.

Fangirl time:

KILE-oh my gosh she banished him okokok I’m so happy he was there. Keadlyn was always my major ship, and I know she will never stop loving Kile. That part where she let him go was a tearjerker.

ERIK-EADRIK WAS MY PREDICTION AND HOW DO I EVEN START THEY’RE SO CUTE the way they talk to each other…they’re like Maxerica but a Youth by Troye Sivan energetic version of them and I lovelovelove it and how Erik’s so shy. AND OH DANG THEY KNOW EACH OTHER’S FULL NAMES AND HAVE A CHILD AND ANOTHER IN THE WOMB

HENRI-HENRI. YOU CINNAMON ROLL. Henri deserves so much. He was happy for his friend through all of this. He was happy all the time for that matter. And that final part where he’s like I may not have a lot of knowledge of English but I do know love was beautiful. Utterly great.

HALE AND EAN-HALEAN U CUTE LIL CHIPS

LADY BRICE-I HAVE NO WORDS I LOVE U LADY BRICE

KOSIE-THEIR WEDDING OMG.

I cried during quite a few parts including the last talk in Kile’s room, and of course some scenes with Erik and Henri and such, but I was also getting hit in the feels with some other scenes that expressed ideas of connectivity. Such as the scene with Eloise. She was so understanding, and just said this amazing quote, like “We’ll help you get through it,” it just reminds me of how caring and amazing this fandom is. As well as the scene with America, Marlee, and Lucy, and Eadlyn thinking about her friendship with Josie and Neena. The closeness we have with each other is amazing and I love all of you dearly.

And now I’m wrapping this up to say that this is it guys, but also clearly not it. I have formed friendships that will last forever, I have made best friends on this amazing place called the Internet. The fact that this series has brought this to us has created a bittersweet moment. “And life, as it always does, went on.” No matter how much stress or strife is in it, life will always go on, and it’s up to you to make it count. And by reading this series, I have definitely made this part of my life a big one. I’d like to say I love you and thank you to all of my friends in this fandom and to all the people who made this series possible, and of course to Kiera Cass. This may be a royal farewell, but, “this is not happily ever after, it’s so much more than that.”

Let’s start it off this way: There must have been a reason Charles wouldn’t let Spencer sleep in the dollhouse for like ages - and when he finally let her he had her waking up covered in blood.

Why do that? Well I think what Charles wanted to trigger was some kind of trip to Spencers subconcious mind. To make her remember something. We just recently had one of those trips when Spencer saw that little girl dance in Radley. She was sleep deprived then. But this happened when she lacked sleep once before - in Shadow Play (4x19). It was a whole episode consisting of Spencer’s said subconcious mind that Charles apparently wanted to trigger. Thats why I decided to look for answers there.

(Start of Shadow Play: ‘You start a question and it’s like a starting a stone. You sit quietly on the top of a hill and away the stone goes, starting others”.

This was before Spencer’s very vivid dreams started but I think it found its counterpart inside the dream later.. I’ve always wondered what was up with the following statement:

umm yeah thanks for the info Mona? There’s gotta be more to it. The only thing I could think of was that it may be an anagram. 

carrot stick = rock stir act

That was the only one that kinda made sense to me. And I think it might in two ways:

a) as a reference to the sentence written on the chalk board above and 

b) of course as in the act of moving a rock and hitting someone in the head ‘that night’

In the scene above Hanna took the last carrot stick and left with Spencer. And although Hanna was the one to take the stick I still think this whole thing was Spencer-related.. Let me just show you why. (all the texts on the following pictures that are from the shadow play episode are quotes, I made them while rewatching)

So is Spencer a cold blooded killer? I don’t think so, I’m pretty convinced there’s more to the story.

That’s it. Don’t forget this is all happening in Spencer’s own mind. I’m pretty darn sure that’s exactly what happened, or at least what Ali had planned to happen (“or maybe she tricked you into helping”). Spencer really did someone in the head, not sure if Ali or Bethany though. Plus I do believe she might have been tricked to do so. And I also believe that’s the reason Charles is so mad at the liars - he believes them to be heavily involved into what happened (to Bethany?) that night.

Now what was Ali’s goal?

especially to the point of hiding in plain sight:

Look at the bags. Ali was leaving in the first picture. The second picture shows the girls in Noel Kahn’s cabin long before Ali returned.

back to Shadow Play:

I think Ali was trying really hard to pull off a show to get Ezra to write a story about her. Her story that’d make her famous and bring her immortality. But why would she need Ezra to do that?

The answer is right away in the same episode. To be exact, in Ali’s diary. Everybody has always been looking at the mermaid story on the page next to this one but I think this also tells us a lot..

(Plain text: I have to admit: things are easy for me, to turn people, to play with them like putty in my hands, molding the situation in my favor. But to write, to sway, to control with the power of words, that skill I have [not] yet mastered and he [..] teaching it to me. [..] can’t stop thinking [..] Pedrson. It’s just been too long)

Two other people were very present in this episode:

Aria and Toby. Which isn’t really odd because Spencer thought Ezra was A back then and still had to tell Aria and was keeping the fact that she knew Ali was alive from Toby - so of course these things bothered her mind. But still, there were some things that I did perceive as odd nevertheless:

That wasn’t when we knew you Aria.. she stated she had been a tomboy ‘till then which she wasn’t when she was part of the group of the liars. In fact she was a girl with pink hair that a certain someone now seems to be kinda obsessed about..

What made things about her weird for me was mainly this one:

Mirrors and Aria.. again.

Aria said this to Spencer. She’s probably right. But why is she the one to say it??

And one strange thing about Toby here..

That’s right what he started off with. Who else do we know likes drinks? A. We’ve seen bottles of whiskey and vodka in A endings multiple times. But I couldn’t remember Toby having anything to do with alcohol apart from that very scene.. which is why I think it’s kinda strange for Spencer’s mind to have him say this.

What do you guys think? ♥

My 10 favorites (related to Shamy) quotes from season 10 (so far):

10) AMY: “-Look, I know this experiment is a big step outside of your comfort zone. So why don’t we take being physical off the table and maybe later on, once we’re more settled in, we can revisit it.

SHELDON: -You’re really okay with that?

A: -I’ve never lived with someone, either. This is a lot for me, too.

S: -This is such a relief. Honestly, if it didn’t get you all worked up, I’d kiss you right now.” (10x04)

+  I like when the writers remind us that all this changes are new for Amy as well, and something I take is that Sheldon, although he had obviously thought of the “coital expectations”, had not said anything until Amy brought the subject. He might have been willing to go further, but she knew that wasn’t the time.

9) SHELDON: “-I have the feeling that she’s hiding something.

[…]

-Well, whatever it is, it’s troubling me. And I can’t eat, I can’t sleep… And don’t even ask about the consistency of my bowel movements.” (10x07)

+ Leaving aside the “bowel movements” thing, I find touching how much Sheldon worried about what happened to Amy. Maybe he even felt a little scared, given previous events. Poor thing.


8) SHELDON: “-Despite recent events, I do consider our experiment in cohabitation to have been positive.

AMY: -Are you saying you’d like to live with me?

S: -I’m open to the possibility.” (10x07)

+ Sheldon didn’t use the recent conflict to end the experiment there and then. He could do it, but he WANTS to live with Amy. He already knows that it will not be always a bed of roses, but also that Amy is worth it.


7) SHELDON: -“Yeah, we need to stop for magnets on the way home; this is going right on the fridge.”/ (To Bernadette) -“I have to say, it is nice to share this experience with someone who’s on the same journey.” (10x08)

+  I put these two sentences together because they both refer to Sheldon’s comparison of their experiment with making a baby, and how he feels so excited about it. Also, they show how attached to Amy he is. Considering the apartment their HOME, combining their genes, decorating the refrigerator with their “baby"’s pic… they are already starting a family.

6) SHELDON: “-I’m just contemplating Buridan’s donkey. 

AMY: -I understand. I’ll leave you be.” (10x07)

+ The entire scene justifies itself a longer analysis than this whole post, but I will summarize it in three points: 

. Amy understanding his refence, as the intellectual equal she always was.

. She supporting him with her words and actions. With a single gesture, she reaffirmed her feelings, but gave him the space to make his own decision. 

. Sheldon almost unconsciously following Amy. He already understood that changes aren’t always bad, and it is not worth risking losing Amy out of fear or comfort. She has flaws, there’s no sense in deny it, but she give him something that he can’t find nowhere else. They can live without each other, but they don’t want to do it anymore.


5) HOWARD: “-Do you love Amy?

SHELDON: -Yes.

RAJ:-Do you like living with her? 

S: -Yes!” (10x07)

+ We know Sheldon loves Amy, and he is enjoying living with her. I just loved the way he answered, without hesitation. He even raised his voice, like saying: “What are you asking me? Isn’t it obvious?”


4) SHELDON: “-Amy, you should know I was never really interested in seeing other women.” (10x05)

 + Again: I already knew that. Penny already knew that. I believe even Amy didn´t doubt about that. But, after all the things that Sheldon said and understood, about his past, about his feelings and his fears, he saw necessary to reaffirm this fact to Amy. And the tone he used… I melted. But he did not leave it there, he wanted to show her that he was speaking from his heart, and he did it.


3) SHELDON: “-Well, if you are so protective of the scientific method, perhaps we should use the next five weeks to finish what we started.

AMY: -Well, for science, maybe I will!

S: -For science, maybe you should!” (10x04)

+ Do I need to say more?? #ForScience!


2) AMY: “-Listen, you and I are gonna be sharing a bed. You know, this is uncharted territory for both of us. How are you feeling about that?

SHELDON: - Oh, excited, concerned, a little scared…” (10x04)

+ In addition to everything I wrote before, I liked Sheldon’s honesty voicing his feelings. I was waiting for him to say that he was scared or concerned, but, even though he said it, none of those were his first responses. It was “excited”. Several times, I felt that the writers intended to make us forget about the ring and Sheldon’s wishes to marry Amy, in order to hold over the engagement and stretch the story, all of that at expenses of a true progress in the relationship (I don’t know if I’m being clear). So I’m glad that this time Sheldon was not forced, nor pressured; that he is participating in this experiment willingly and admits to enjoy it.


1) SHELDON: “-You’ve lived with your significant other for some time; I would like this experiment to go well. Are there any insights you can share?” (10x04)

I just can’t help coming back to this quote. Even being a introduction to the “real scene,” it was this sentence that caught my attention and made me think: “He really wants to do this.” Even now I keep thinking about it. From the beginning, he decided not to try to sabotage the experiment, but to do everything he could to succeed, even if that included asking for advice. That’s why later was willing to forgive Amy, because he wants to make this cohabitation work. =)


BONUS:

SHELDON: “-I need to prepare her now to save her from pain down the road.

 […]

PENNY: -Honey, instead of worrying about pain you might cause in the future, how about trying to fix the pain you’re causing her right now?” (10x05)

+ I couldn’t leave it out of this. Even if this (honestly) wasn’t my favourite episode, and I did not agree with Sheldon’s way of thinking, I believe Penny’s sentence hit the spot; in fact, she was the voice of my thoughts. It was also this scene what led to Shamy’s talk and hug and everything (item 4), so I think it was important question and a deep moment.

Beth Appreciation Week:: Day 3 :: Favourite Scene
Moonshine Shack


This was my favourite scene. It wasn’t because it was just Daryl and Beth, but because this was Beth at one of her most vulnerable states since 18 miles out. She was Raw here and her quote ‘If you don’t it kills you…here’ just expresses so much that I can’t even put it into words. The gesture of it just made me personally think about a lot of things and I think it made them all. It was such a human moment that we had been really lacking, something where they’ve finally got to have their walls down. There isn’t an immediate threat and they’re forced to deal with the fact that yes they are alone, but they still have to leave.


It gave him permission to let things go, but it also gave permission to the audience to let things go as well. It was like a confessional between them on that porch. There’s so much talk about this show having religious symbolism in this and this scene reminded me of a confessional. The fact that he was pretty much confessing up what he thought were the sins of his past and she just accepted it. There wasn’t any judgement, just an acceptance and the immediate reaction of you’re one of the good ones and you can be your own man. 

Don’t you think that’s beautiful?
