thinking in the rain

More of my summoner & Alfonse doodle… They were playing Trouble Maker in the cafe when I was thinking of these two so.

(I was waiting for the rain to stop at a cafe today… and it went on for 7 hours until I finally had to run in the rain TwT)> So I drew the summoner waiting for the rain to stop to go see Alfonse what a nerd)

410 Speculation

Before the Season started, lots of our actors and crew members told us that Season 4 was very similar to Season 1, however, it wasn’t until the Season started that I began to understand just how much every Season parallels the Seasons before it. 

In order to fully understand the basis of my 410 Speculation, you need to understand that every episode of Season 4 has had strong parallels to it’s counter-episodes (so in the case of episode 10-those episodes would be 110, 210 an 310).

For example: Episode 409 very strongly parallels 109, 209 and 309:

 In episode 109, Clarke attempts to negotiate a peace with Anya (who is at the time believed to be the leader of the Grounders) at a meeting set up with Finn through Lincoln, by explaining that the flares falling onto and burning Grounder villages was an accident, unfortunately before a peace can be brokered, Jasper notices Grounders in the trees and shoots and the meeting becomes a battle. 

In episode 209, Clarke attempts to negotiate a peace with L/xa (who is now confirmed to be the leader of the Grounders), by bringing Finn’s body to TonD.C. where he can be burned with his victims. Unfortunately, Gustus is not a fan of the alliance and attempts to see to it’s destruction by faking a poisoning and this meeting again almost becomes a battle, until Clarke uncovers Gustus’ treachery, the alliance is reformed and Gustus is killed. 

In episode 309, Clarke is hopeful that L/xa’s replacement will continue to honor the terms that L/xa set forth between Arkadia and the Grounders that promise peace between their people, however, before the Conclave can begin Ontari arrives and murders the other Nightbloods before declaring herself Commander, which essentially ensures that the Arkadians are no longer safe. In order to protect her people, Clarke steals the Flame from Arkadia and begins to make her way back home while Roan is sent to retrieve the Flame. 

In episode 409, Clarke attempts to negotiate a peace between Azgeda and Trikru, unfortunately neither side is amenable to a truce. In order to force the hands of the clans, Clarke reveals her new status as a Nightblood to Gaia, in a bid to force her hand. Gaia calls for an accession ceremony, but before Clarke can (for all intents and purposes) steal the Flame, Roan (and Abby) expose Clarke’s treachery and the meeting devolves into the beginnings of a new Conclave. 

So in each “9″ episode the following standards have been true:

Two parties attempt to negotiate a peace (typical the Arkadians and the Grounders). 

Something is discovered to be not quite right about the negotiations (in 109-the Grounders in the trees, in 209-the poisoned alcohol, in 309-Ontari murders all the Nightbloods, in 409-Clarke’s deception and trickery). 

The negotiations break down. 

In every “9″ except for Season 2, the peace is not brokered and a battle begins/happens. 

Which (finally) leads me to the point of this post-410 speculation. So what do I believe will happen in 410? I believe we will see the following:

I believe the Conclave for who gets to hold the Bunker is initiated and might even continue for quite some time, however I think the battle will be interrupted by the appearance of Black Rain (thanks to Bellamy’s foreshadowing in 409 about staying close to the partner with the Chem tent). I believe that they will all gather in the Bunker (or some other contained space-Bellarke tent sharing?!-I have my fingers crossed). I believe that Bellamy will be injured in this episode and I suspect the injury will happen because of a betrayal. I’m also 50/50 on the possibility of Clarke becoming sick in this episode. I believe that Octavia will lose/will be losing the Conclave. I believe it’s possible that they discover a solution for what ails Raven and Abby, but they might have to choose between saving one or the other-if this is the case I think Abby will sacrifice herself for Raven. I also believe that either Roan/Luna/Indra could be injured. (These last predictions depend on this episode taking place in multiple locations and not just Polis): I believe that Raven will come up with a solution to a problem (either her own or she will come up with a solution to the Arkadians losing the Bunker) or the portion of ALIE’s code left in her brain becomes even more of a problem than it already is.  I believe that Jasper might do something heroic aided by/to help Monty. I also believe that either Roan/Luna/Indra could be injured. 

Things that I believe support my above speculation:

Going back to the idea that every episode this Season has matched its counter-episode, we need to look at the other “10″ episodes:

In 110, Murphy brings a bioweapon into camp. The vast majority of the Delinquents get sick and are quarantined to the Dropship. Octavia is not sick but as she has been exposed to the illness Clarke quarantines her and betrays Bellamy’s trust by using Octavia’s quarantine to sneak her out to Lincoln to ask for a cure (which she is unsuccessful in doing because there is no cure)-however she does return with news that the Grounders are attacking. Raven constructs a bomb to blow up the bridge and manages to place it properly but is to sick to complete the shot (she was however, willing to sacrifice her life to ensure that the bomb went off), she is rescued by Finn and Jasper (with encouragement from Monty) fires the shot that succeeds in blowing up the bridge (and killing several Grounders). Raven later breaks up with Finn. This episode was a pretty good Bellarke episode as well. 

In 210, one of the Grounder council members attempts to kill Clarke, forcing her to run into the forest to escape. She and L/xa encounter Pauna (and L/xa is injured). They manage to escape, but the encounter with Pauna gives Clarke an idea for how they can defeat the Mountain using the Grounder army trapped inside of it. Bellamy and Lincoln plan to infiltrate Mount Weather, but when they arrive Lincoln’s addiction gets the better of him and he betrays Bellamy for more of the drug. Octavia fights Fio (who appears to be the same Grounder fighting for Trikru in 410), but loses. However-her bravery in continuing to get up impresses Indra enough that she asks her to be her second, something that Kane warns Octavia against. 

in 310, Clarke is largely absent only appearing at the very end as Jasper escapes with Raven in the rover. Bellamy is beaten by Octavia in this episode and then is betrayed by Kane, when it is decided he will be used as a hostage to hand over to Pike. Octavia is overpowered by Bellamy (for her own good). Monty escapes from Arkadia after Pike discovered he helped the prisoners escape. Raven comes up with a way to get ALIE out of her brain, but before she can implement it, ALIE forces Raven to submit to full control and has her slit her wrists in front of Abby to persuade her to take the chip. Jasper, upon realizing that what amounts to all of Arkadia being lost, takes Raven’s unconscious form and forces his way out of Arkadia. 

So (thus far) in each “10″ the following things have been standard:

A large scale threat to the people of Arkadia-save Season 2 (110-bioweapon, 310-City of Light.)

Bellamy betrayed and injured (110-betrayed by Clarke/sick from bioweapon, 210-betrayed by Lincoln/treated like chattel, 310-betrayed by Kane/beaten by Octavia). 

Octavia being unable to help her people/losing but ultimately helping in some way (110-couldn’t bring a cure back/did bring back info about the incoming grounder army, 210-lost fight to Fio/became Indra’s second, 310-overpowered by Bellamy).

Raven pulls a save-save Season 2 (110-the hydrazine bomb, 310-creates the EMP device). 

Jasper pulls a save-save Season 2 (110-shoots the hydrazine bomb, 310-saves Raven from Arkadia). 

Feel free to share/reblog if you have more theories as to what could happen in 410!

Happy birthday Zen!
Here’s my April Fools’ prank. I promised something spicy but you get fluff instead. I hope you’re not making a sad face. I’m smiling (:

Adrinette Month Day 5: Coffee Shop Au 

Back to working loosely haha I enjoy it far too much 8]

He didn’t know when she started sitting there, every morning at eight, with a cup of coffee in her hands. He only knew when he started remembering her. 

Sometimes she was with someone–a friend, he hoped–but most times, she was alone, sitting contentedly with her beverage, enjoying her own company. 

He never could quite muster up the courage to go up to her–what was he going to say? “Hey, I’ve been watching you drink coffee every morning as I walk to work, how’s it going?” Yeah, that’s not a bit creepy.

So one day, when it was down-pouring, and he went his way to work, believing fully that perhaps today, he might not get to see her, he was surprised to find he was wrong. There she was, wearing a bright red raincoat–but no umbrella.

And he finally found his chance.
