this gifset has literally no point

1, 3 12, 13, for the crit role ask thing

(Couple of these have other answers in my meme tag.)

1. Which episode is your favorite? Why?

It’s still episode 52: The Kill Box, because holy cow it’s good. I can’t really recommend it to new viewers because it’s just literally a three-hour D&D slugfest, most of which is spent out of character and doing math, but the slow-building tension (at some point I’ve gotta make a gifset of all the times people said things like “I can feel my heartbeat in my face”) and the off-the-wall ideas and the high stakes were so great, and I don’t know that the team has ever felt more like a team. It was equal parts Vox Machina trying to pull through a very bad situation and the cast of Critical Role trying to outwit Matthew Mercer. And for all the ingenious strategies and lucky breaks, it still all turned on a couple of out-of-this-world lucky dice rolls. Just a perfect example of what D&D combat can be, balanced impossibly well for a party this big. So, so good.

3. Who is your favorite main player character?

This is gonna sound like a cop-out, but I really can’t pick! Honestly, any one of these characters dropped into another show would pretty much be guaranteed to be my absolute favorite character in that show. They’re all so good.

12. Name a moment that’s stuck with you. 

Pike staring across the breakfast table at Garmelie (later revealed to be a friggin’ archfey) while playing a very off-key rendition of Hot Cross Buns on the ocarina she stole from him. Also, Pike commissioning Garmelie to draw the worst/best family portrait ever.

13. Has Critical Role ever made you cry? When?

The end of episode 68 was such a knock-down-drag-out fight, with the nightmarish experience of all the baddies pretty much focusing their fire on a single person, and I’m not sure the sense of exhaustion in a battle has ever come across as well as it did when Keyleth was pulled back from the brink of death herself and just reached over to try and keep Percy breathing with healing spells. And that ending… it’s easy to get emotional when the players are barely keeping it together.

Arrow 520 "Underneath" Thoughts

(I initially wrote this after a long night and red wine, so enjoy that. I usually fix most of my errors in the morning) This episode flashed back in order to show progression. While I had a few minor quibbles, let’s dive into it.

The Opening Scene

(GIF credit: @felicityssoliver)

We know it picks directly after 519 “Dangerous Liaisons”. When Oliver and Felicity come to, Oliver’s first though is to find/protect Felicity. They assess the damage, and the explosive ramifications for Felicity, who finds herself temporarily paralyzed again. It felt very reminiscent of the explosion from 301 in “The Calm”.

The Escape Plans

They both have plausible ideas. Felicity’s being the more calculated, efficient, and thought out of the time.

My issues with the scenes for those moments, and my boyfriend can attest to this, I yelled at our TV, “Stop bickering, and work together, dammit!” But they managed to work together through difference. Granted, Oliver, Felicity, and the team got our favorite power couple out in the nick of time.

I will say I did like to see Felicity call Oliver out on his hypocrisy and bullshit as she does. I also enjoyed looking at Felicity while she patches up Oliver again. Plus her “I told you so. I told you” What? Eleven times, according to the script.

Tell us more about Tony crossing his arms over his chest in the MCU, Nat :D (Also, 616 Tony fiddles with his hands too)

(i don’t usually do these analyses for 616 because the thing with having multiple artists is that there’s little consistency across the board re: how 616 tony carries himself :/)

anyway!! with this new TV spot

today is as good a day as any to yell about this

I don’t care if you hate SMC

but don’t shit on it on my gifset because I’m trying to celebrate a good aspect of Sailor Moon. That is so not the point. It just goes to show that haters will turn every positive thing into a negative thing literally every chance they get. I don’t even know what you’re doing in the tag if you hate it so much. Or reblogged the gifset at all.

I just want to make gifs without receiving commentary that has nothing to do with the scene depicted in said gifs, is that really too much to ask. You can literally talk shit about SMC anywhere else. For example, your own blog. Please utilize that.

So I was look at this gifset and this

and God do you ever think about just how fucking LONELY of a thing it is that Killian turns to the ocean for comfort? When he needs to calm the tumult in his heart and head he turns to the sea? That for hundreds of years, he literally has had NO ONE to the point he bonded with a cold, endless expanse of water

I know that lots of people have non-human things that calm them, a favorite book or blanket or movie. But all of those things are usually in addition to a human support system. So for it to be his entire support system? His only place to turn for comfort? 

I think about this and it shreds my heart to goddamn ribbons. And it makes it so unfuckingbelievably beautiful that Emma not only knows this (and actively works to support and comfort him), but she knows this because he told her this. As much as she has lowered her walls with him, he has done the same by turning to her for comfort. By telling her his tales. By sharing what’s in his heart. By making her his home.

Just fuck me up. THIS SHIP, MAN.
