we are used to the fact that Mashima puts aside Juvia, and that Gray forgets Juvia for this concentrate on his objective

But there, Juvia was not just wounded, she was dead …

I think only one “window/pannel” would enough to see Gray, before leaving,
saying a word, or a look, or just asked to Ever or Porlyussica : take care of her

  A little “consideration” from him, just that…

It is not so and I’m getting used to it

Since the Avatar arc, Mashima despairs me with the management of Juvia’s character

I mean: WHY !?

Originally posted by yourreactiongifs

I even came to the conclusion that he don’t like this character …
So much I’m desperate… (i knw it’s not true but it’s just that.. sometimes I don’t understand why Mashima-sensei…)

I don’t understand him, and indeed I don’t even want to try to understand,

Since the end of Tartaros arc, Mashima has lost all logic,
Avatar is one of the worst arcs, but I must admit that Alvarez arc dethrone it,

I knw that Juvia is a secondary character, I have understood since the first day I liked this character, and I knew that I must have enjoyed each of these events, because they will be precious

But there … seriously Mashima?
set aside Juvia…again… again? With so much ease?

Originally posted by n-wordbelike

My heart is divided btw anger and tiredness by the ease with which Mashima do that

So I tried to ask myself: it’s because I love this character so much then I’m not trully objective?
So I tried to understand and analyze that…

But my conclusion is always the same: Mashima doesn’t do justice to this character

I cannot really blame him because I knw he does his best to give importance to each of these characters but…

Even though I’m sad that there were no scenes of gruvia and
Beyond the situation with Gray, Juvia is a character in her own right, she possesses her personality,

But above all she possesses an incredible power: water

One of the 4 elements on earth,

I have never seen any manga with such enormous power and as badly exploited with Juvia

She could lift the oceans,

I wonder but : Where is the water in all this?

Why doesn’t Juvia deserve a real fight too?
It is the only character whose power is not seen to evolve

They’re all got power up, but not Juvia, why?

I knw she’s a Gray support character, but she’s also a full-fledged character, she’s also part of the guild, and she‘s the only major character we don’t really know the past,

I find it so unfair,

I would have liked Juvia slapping Gray, on his return from Avatar, and doesn’t forgive him so easily

Originally posted by ftanimae

But I would have liked even more a slap to stop Gray during his ice-shied

But once again Natsu stops him…

Originally posted by fullmetal-dragneel

I don’t try to insert Gruvia everywhere, because it takes a logic to use Juvia, but here Natsu’s intervention was a scriptwriting ease, no surprise , is too easy!

Juvia could not find him for 6 months during Avatar arc, but when she felt him in danger against Briaya, she appeared magically cared for,

But here, she didn’t feel that the man she loves, above all , was about to commit suicide?

That doesn’t make sense… No… Mashima  prefers to let her sleep…

Meanwhile Natsu :
-  died twice,
-  fought Zeref,
- fought Jacob,
- survived August attack,
- fought Gray
- fight again Zeref …

When Wendy :
- fought Dimaria,
- Torafusa,
- Random,
- Eileen,
- Cared of Juvia of death,
- Cures Erza,
- Wounded to death by Eileen,
- She used countless times her dragon force

but she manages to get up… while in Oracion seis arc , she was hardly if she managed to cure the poison in the Erza arm

Speaking about Erza, seriously?
- Fought kyoka, and the other two, + - random Eileen’s Power
- Fought Ajeel + Jupiter
- Fought Eileen (+ dragon form), explodes a meteor, breaks the bones,

But she remains standing …

It reminds me of her fight against Kyoka where she has removed these 5 senses,

BUT JUVIA, she stayed K.O ( The character of Phantom Lord and pretender to the S . Mage )

Originally posted by sooper-dee-dooper-natural

Not …seriously, I sometimes understand the scriptwriting ease and found pretexts to put the secondary characters in the background to make the main team shine, but here, this is really ridiculous!

Gray leaves… without a word for Juvia, without a look…

Just look at the behavior of Lucy who stayed at the bedside of Natsu the two times he was sick, and once again even though she is back, she is next to Natsu during his fight against Zeref, I find it very beautiful , And that means a lot

I knw Gray to these goals, but dont uses the character of Juvia just when Mashima needs her

- Tartaros Arc : Juvia set aside,
- Avatar Arc : Juvia set aside for a fever, (seriously? )
She forgives Gray at the speed of light
Without a word, without explanation,

- Alvarez Arc : COMBO !!! Mashima set aside her ,
again again and again….

Originally posted by i-am-a-lucky-artefact

It tires me, and I don’t want any more excuses for Mashima because there are none…

Ps : I’m sorry to answer like this, and if my answer may be disappointing… :s
But i love gruvia, i love Juvia and i love Gray ,
I love Mashima more but for now I don’t understand him

More Native actors of “Wind River.” Julia Jones played Renner’s wife and she was very powerful in the few scenes she was given. You could feel the tension and grief radiating from her, and the one scene where Cory shows up on her doorstep and she basically turns him away was heartbreaking and incredibly believable. Graham Greene was fantastic as usual, showing the casual and good friendship with Cory that was important to Cory’s character. Tokala Clifford played Sam and he was so moving in his few scenes.

All of these actors were so good.

“Someone once asked me if I had learned anything from it all. So let me tell you what I learned. I learned… everyone dies alone.

But if you meant something to someone… if you helped someone… or loved someone… If even a single person remembers you… then maybe you never really die.

And maybe this isn’t the end at all.”

Memory of a Memory is such a good episode. Not even just because of the ending (where everyone joins in beating Marceline’s awful ex Ash up) although that’s a reeeeally satisfying scene.

But my FAVOURITE THING about Memory of a Memory is the really important lesson contained therein. Marceline doesn’t decide to beat Ash up straight away, you see. She spends a fair amount of time with him, because he seemed so nice (to the audience as well) at first. And there’s a scene of him being the perfect boyfriend to her, magic-ing up some flowers that say “I love you!” and so on.

But then there’s lines like the above, where you can see how Marceline - an incredibly powerful vampire chick who can shapeshift into a monster whenever she feels like it - is completely under the thumb of this guy. Who is actually an abusive misogynistic arsehole who sells Marcy’s most treasured possession and then wipes her memory of the resulting breakup. Marceline, daughter of the Nightosphere, survivor of the Mushroom War, ageless and mischievous vampire queen, acts totally out of character around Ash-

-and I think that’s a really good decision on the part of the writers? Because this episode showed that anyone can fall into an abusive relationship. It’s not a thing that ‘tough/strong/badass’ women are immune to, nor is it a character flaw. And it’s not a character flaw if you don’t instantly twig onto what’s happening, either. Finn and Jake clearly don’t think so at any point during the episode and neither should the audience, neither should anyone. It’s such a good lesson for kids to learn and it was executed so well.

The play-fight scene with Hiccup and Toothless at the very start of HTTYD 2 is so ridiculously important. It’s not just a fluff scene to make audience members laugh and enjoy character interactions. This scene is all about proving the point that Hiccup and Toothless’ relationship is incredible, deep, unforgettable, unconditional… 

…permanent.

Audiences have to see the relationship in all its beauty to believe there is nothing, absolutely nothing, that can come between Hiccup and Toothless. So that when their relationship breaks and Hiccup rejects Toothless, viewers are all the more impacted. Shocked. Grieved. The breaking of a friendship is all the more powerful when we believe it could never have happened, especially not at a cataclysmic scale like this.

In a few minutes’ time span, what suddenly seems like an unbreakable friendship suddenly seems like an irreparable rift. This again heightens the power of Toothless breaking out of the Bewilderbeast’s hold and reuniting with Hiccup. The juxtaposition between what was and what is heavily impacts both Hiccup and audience viewers alike. Where once audiences doubt Hiccup and Toothless cannot break apart, suddenly everyone questions whether or not they can come together.

Everything, everything hurts because we have that comparison between the good at the start of the movie and the horror which occurs later on.

For without that wildly dynamic whiplash between a rock-solid relationship and the explosion which occurs in “Stoick Saves Hiccup,” the dynamic between Hiccup and Toothless would have been far less effective. But because we see such dramatic oscillations - a beautiful beginning bond, a horrid rejection, and a tense reunification - every part of the story and every part of the relationship simultaneously becomes more effective.

Simple play-fight scene? No. Without it, we lose so many of the effects of the rollercoaster dynamics in their relationship. This adorable scene forms a useful crutch that sets us up for all the powerful emotional moments between them in the rest of the film.

You know what I think?  Make more OCs.  Go crazy.  

Some people won’t read stories with OCs.  Eh.  That’s their choice and I, for one, won’t miss ‘em.  Give your characters siblings, parents, mentors, children, former lovers.  It’s not for everyone.  Nothing is.  But because of the nature of the game, Thedas is usually strangely sterile with regard to these complex (and sometimes very painful) interconnections with other people.  Most of the characters are single and their family is out of the picture, their issues with them in the past.  Which is…well, haha I won’t lie in some ways that’s probably a fantasy for a lot of us, but it’s hardly realistic.

Think about how much we love the connections we ARE given.  I don’t think I’m alone in thinking Alistair’s encounters with family (both real and false, known and unknown) are very powerful.  Cassandra’s relationship with her brother, Cullen’s fumbling letters with Mia, Oghren’s incredibly painful relationship with family and intimacy–these are, to me, very enriching.  I know I’m not the only one who loves the Chargers and Krem and we all know by now how incredibly important they are to Iron Bull’s development.  That is what we could have more of.

Give family to canon characters.  Man, I got what I (so humbly) think were some really great scenes out of Mia and Branson Rutherford.  I’ve seen others do so as well.  What if Blackwall had an uncle who had thought he was dead?  I mean holy shit, right?  What if Sera went to the baker she had thought hated her and let go of that ghost?

Weave the characters into the fabric of the world.  Give them connections and complications.  Give them a chance to show and discover different sides of their personalities.  Give them more to lose.

Just a thought.

Of course I love the hug part of the scene, but lets also talk about how these two are talking out their feelings. It probably helps some that they are in a relationship, but still our culture tells boys from a young age that they can’t really talk about their feelings. Our culture thinks that when boys talk about their feelings it emasculates them so those feelings need to be bottled up. That scene showed how wrong our culture is. It showed how important it is for any young person to have someone to talk to if they need to, no matter what gender or sex you are. It showed that even at the most vulnerable times, someone can still be incredibly strong. That’s a huge message to send out to young people, especially young boys, who watch the show.

In your post about Azoff you mentioned Billboard and NME as music magazines that were doing an important job in the rebrand. I understand Billboard because of the Azoff connection but NME has one too or?

Irving Azoff’s connection with Billboard is a remarkable detail but it’s not the reason I’m so excited to see One Direction all over the magazine every day. Billboard is a very important source of information inside the industry, it does talk about gossip every now and then but most people read it to keep up with the music scene and the industry news. These people have specific demographic characteristics that don’t usually match the typical boyband’s target so it’s incredibly useful in a rebranding - people who probably never paid attention to 1D before are seeing their name all over a serious and professional magazine now. It’s a lovely sight.

Same with NME. It’s a British publication so I don’t think Azoff has much power over it (although it belongs to the UK subsidiary of USA based company Times Inc., that publishes a lot of important magazines including Times, People and Entertainment Weekly) but the fact that they’re writing about One Direction blows my mind completely. NME is a rock/alternative/indie focused magazine and they’re disgustingly elitist - seriously, they are the biggest music snobs ever and have the habit of making fun of popstars all the time. Seeing them writing about the boys in a non-sarcastic way is truly impressive, a friend of mine mentioned it to me the other day and it’s a very drastic change.
