What are your most underrated robron/and/or robert aaron moments that you feel need more appreciation? And any scenes that the fandom loves that you're not crazy over 😋
okay so i’ll just list some moments i feel like the fandom need to shout about a lot more in no particular order because i’m a mess.
so we have:
1) the HUGE HEART EYES on aaron’s face after robert tells him that he’ll book some city break for them (yk during the first ever domestic ‘let’s eat breakfast together’ scene) ~ basically it’s the softest thing in the absolutely world and i don’t think i have ever seen aaron look more settled and secure and just CONTENT with the life he is leading. it’s literally the day after the end of the most horrific trial in the world and things are still messed up in his head obviously, he’s got a TONNE of demons who are demanding his attention but he’s telling them to piss off because he woke up next to robert sugden, he’s eating breakfast with him and robert doesn’t need to be ANYWHERE ELSE and he’s just finished telling him that they should go on a city break and ??? aaron literally looks like he’s been hit with cupid’s arrow and robert doesn’t even see it but we do and it’s EVERYTHING !!!
2) ROBERT ROASTING THE WHITES, okay so you know the scene in vic’s cottage where lawrence confronts robert about being an absolute arse who isn’t worthy of breathing or something dramatic like that? yeah that scene is literally THE BEST. it’s after robert has crucified aaron, burnt every bridge left with him and with andy too and he has ZERO FUCKS to give. so lawrence comes in and he’s literally like, come at me bro, let me go off at you as well just for the fun of it. “she’s old but she’s not that old” is probably the trashiest best thing to ever leave rob’s mouth because it’s just the sort of sarky, mouth wide open and trying not to laugh, line which KILLS ME.
3) THE QUARRY SCENE, now this is almost ancient in my eyes and i think a lot of others too but we need to talk about how highly charged the whole damn thing was. it was the first time i think the audience got a real human side of robert and could SEE how much he was juggling and trying to deal with. back then he was the definition of the phrase about spinning too many plates at the same time or whatever and the way it cultivated into those scenes was brilliantly done. it was INTENSE and wild and i think was the first time robert literally had to go SHIT i really care about aaron more than i am letting on. for him, up until that point, he needed aaron to be quiet, keep his mouth shut and sort of get over everything. he didn’t even want to try and think about how the hell this was affecting the younger man. and then he’s seeing him standing on the edge of a damn quarry and looking out, he’s sitting in a car with his suicidal brother and for a SECOND he looks away and aaron is gone. i cannot tell you how many times i have replayed the way robert says AARON ???? because he is suddenly short of breath and is2g it reminds me of the breath robert takes in before he gives it to aaron when they’re in the drowning car. it’s from his DAMN GUT and he’s ridiculously scared and WORRIED about aaron dingle ??? and yeah we need to talk about it more pls, thank you.
4) “YOU CAN BUY ME A PINT IF YOU LIKE TO SAY THANKS FOR SMOOTHING THINGS OVER” *aaron literally just keeps his poker face on and you literally see the smirk fall from rob’s face* “ALRIGHT I’LL BUY YOU A PINT” ~ like ???? can you believe the cocky smarmy confident little trash boy risks looking like a mug just to coax out a little more time with aaron?? it’s wild. aaron doesn’t even need to say anything and it throws robert completely because, wtf is wrong with this boy? can’t he take a little bit of banter? and then literally two seconds later he’s like uhh No clearly not so drop that smile because your powers don’t work on him like they usually do so - OFFER TO BUY HIM A PINT, SEE HOW HE LIKES THAT. it’s just your typical trash bag being shaken to the core because his charms don’t work on certain mechanics apparently and he literally changes tack just for AARON.
tbh… I know everyone’s kinda hyped abt the lion swap and shit but lmao….. it’s??? a dumb idea lmfao….
like…. noah fence but imo…….. lance is not….. red…. red??? loves keith y would she give him up?? that’s dumb u spent a fuckign season talking abt how keith needed to earn her trust and shit n then u go n say “ah yes keith is black paladin now” despite writing him to say that he doesn’t feel comfortable leading the paladins??? and saying he doesn’t want to????? but Ok have fun ig. also??? Lance…. like…. ok 2 options u got with this big okld fucking mess (I mean there’s more but 2 obv answers that make sense. 3 mb) u make lance black paladin and allura pink paladin (y do u need to move like 3 people lmao….. just move one and let the others keep their’s jfc) or u make allura (or coran, allura is the only who can fly the castleship im p sure) black paladin and keith can keep his impulsive ass hands away from leading voltron, (arguably) the most fucking powerful fighter thing in the universe.
Like I love Hunk as the black paladin but it’s not very likely seeming as yk he’s still just a fucking joke to the writer’s. Pidge wouldn’t make sense cause she’s a chold???? A Baby???? No??? Keith is (as I already stated) impulsive and has already Refused!!!!! He doesn’t want to do it!!!!!!! Don’t make him????? Lance is the obv choice bc arguably he’s the mc? so it jsut makes sense yk? with allura!! she makes sense cause she’s altean/the princess and I love her. idk? I just want more focus on her ok. With Coran he’s technically like.,,,, a secondary main character? We see him in (almost?) every episode but again he’s more for comic relief and exposition n stuff yk so it’d be kinda weird for him to be kinda the focus/spotlight suddenly.
but yeah either way I think the most viable options should be give allura black or blue and lance black or just make him stay? Keith stays where he is ok he’s sad please don’t make him black.
these r just my opinions? like,,, I’ll probably see what actually happens but yk….
So the YouTube version was edited. Harry's heartbeat got higher when he saw a female model but this part was cut so everyone thinks it's because of the chelsea boots
That wasn’t why his heart got higher lol when the first asked it stayed the same, then they asked about the boots and it got higher and he started laughing (which I’m assuming it’s because some type of inside joke since he was looking at Lou and Harry and Nick was messing with him). The laugher kept going speeding his heartbeat, probably because he was nervous (but like yk when your friends tease you about something and you get embarrassed but in a cool way? Like laughing off and just hating them? lol yeah like that)
For the character ask: Miles, Trucy and Phoenix :)
1. sexuality headcanon: gay/ace
2. otp: wrightworth for life
3. brotp: gumworth
4. notp: franziska/miles is a Huge No from me
5. first headcanon that pops into my head: he’s good with kids and they love him but he doesn’t really have any plans on having children of his own. idk about babies, he’s probably an anxious mess if he tries to hold somebody’s crying baby.
6. favorite line from this character: so far it’s “enjoy the sound of the noose tightening around your neck” from rise from the ashes. that was so fuckin metal, miles. holy shit.
7. one way in which I relate to this character: yk how kid miles cried when he wasn’t immediately good at origami? yeah, adult me still cries whenever im not immediately good at something too
8. thing that gives me second hand embarrassment about this character: he’s worse in social settings than I am and quite frankly it’s unbearable
9. cinnamon roll or problematic fave? problematic cinnamon fave. he’s got endearing qualities but he’s flawed and complicated. I love him for that
1. sexuality headcanon: lesbian
2. otp: trupearl
3. brotp: trucy/apollo, [kinda literal to call them bros lol] trupearl trumaya t– she’s close with all her friends dammit
4. notp: trucy/anyone over 18-19
5. first headcanon that pops into my head: I haven’t gotten a chance to meet Trucy in-game yet so I don’t know much about her, but I get the sense she’s a prankster so I like to think she gives out gag gifts in addition to her actual gifts during birthdays, Christmas, etc.
6. favorite line from this character: [again I haven’t met her in game yet so I don’t really know much about her!]
7. one way in which I relate to this character: sorry but the only female character in the series I’ve been able to relate to so far is Lana ;-;
8. thing that gives me second hand embarrassment about this character: the whole magic panties thing. I’ve never wanted something retconned so bad
9. cinnamon roll or problematic fave? cinnamon roll. she has done nothing wrong ever. in her life
1. sexuality headcanon: bi
2. otp: wrightworth
3. brotp: nick/larry nick/maya basically, like trucy, he’s close with all his friends
4. notp: im gonna have to give nick/maya a hard pass
5. first headcanon that pops into my head: he’s a really good actor and would’ve had a promising career had he finished art school and his acting skills are partly why he’s so good at bluffing
6. favorite line from this character: HOW ABOUT CUTTING THIS SMALL FRY SOME SLACK YOU BIG MEANIES
7. one way in which I relate to this character: his constant, sarcastic inner monologue
8. thing that gives me second hand embarrassment about this character: when i make the wrong choice and he fucks up in court. im so sorry phoenix. this isn’t your fault.
9. cinnamon roll or problematic fave? what’s the neutral version of that?? I don’t have strong feelings either way, at least not right now
I wish all this extraness meant something good was about to happen yk? Harry bearded. Louis super bearded with his whole promo being about the beard. A Larry denial. They couldn't be more het and separated. I wish it meant the end was coming but I'm sure that's not the reason. They just keep doing this stupid strategy on promo time. Just shit with no actual purpose. I wish they would at least end it. But it's been 2 years and things just keep getting worst tbh. When will it finally get better??
i know, same. it’s been just a mess™️ and i’ve been laughing nonstop due to all their unconvincing fake stunts. the only good thing this brought about is at least louis can actually publicly talk about harry now instead of it being blacklisted lol. also the two week rule and the same patterns continue to be happening which is frankly hilarious. i really hate the fact that louis’ team thinks stunting and denials are equivalent to a good promo strategy because it really really isn’t
i want a “are we really in love or is it just the drugs” kind of ship yk like.. constantly smoking/drunking/popping smth.. messing around & getting high & confessing their love for each other when they feel good but then they come down & realize their relationship is a shit show & they fight & cry .. but get high again to avoid it .. i will kill for this
i would normally agree with you but this time jump feels like a fresh start and like a much needed breeze of fresh air yk. altho i'm still anxious, cuz jr kept saying all the characters will change.. and like dude, i don't want them to change i love them who they are and i'm just sad cuz they won't be the same characters anymore and yet i'm still optimistic cuz like i said a fresh start for many of them and for the show. to summarize this mess: i'm conflicted about the time jump lol
2 parts in your ask so i’ll answer both of them!
“but this time jump feels like a fresh start and like a much needed breeze of fresh air yk”
that’s the thing. and that’s why i call it shitty writing because the writers created a story and couldnt go with it until the end so they needed a “fresh start”: basically they can change whatever they want during those 6 years with the only reason being “it’s been six years”. they could kill off characters just saying “they died”, they could introduced magic/vampires/werewolfs just saying “the radiation made this magic and 6 years evolution created vampires/werewolfs” (i know they wont but they could, they could think of anything and find a good reason in the fact that it’s been 6 years) and it gets me to the second part of your ask:
“and like dude, i don’t want them to change i love them who they are and i’m just sad cuz they won’t be the same characters anymore”
e x a c t l y. i love most of the characters of the show! i dont want them to change and become something completely different without me witnessing it. it’s not character developtment if the viewers are not part of it. it was interesting to see bellamy change from the asshole early s1 to this awesome character he become, it was interesting to hate murphy s1 but being surprised to see him again in s2 as the funny guy and finally growing to love him more and more as he open himself to another person etc, it was interesting to see clarke’s journey, how much she had trouble dealing with what she has to do and the consequences of her actions, it was interesting to see how monty, the sweet cute guy in s1, had to face horrible decisions, how he became a true hero to the story, saving a lot of lifes multiples times… and i could go on for a lot of other characters… But like… we got to see this. I’m not against my fav characters evolving/changing/becoming different. Not at all! But I want to understand why, I want to witness it, I want to see them grow. And I fear the flashbacks wont be enough to show that. The 100 has a too-fast pace, it focus heavily on plot and sometimes forget about its characters’ state-of-minds (not always thank god but not enough for me at least) + we dont know yet how many ep there will be in s5 but it’ll be 16 max and with the big plot they always come up with there isnt enough time to truly set the characters’ minds dealing with new shit after 6 years, they wont have enough time to explain how they evolve truly.
so i see two options for s5 and the characters: either the characters are basically the same and the writers are not dealing with the 6 years of evident change the characters must have endure or the characters are super different and i wont love them as much as i do now. but maybe the writers will surprise me (i’ve always been torned between “i think they’re good writers” and “i think they’re so shitty”) and we’ll get to see the characters we love at core with a new perspective, a new pov on things etc…
So I get why you’re conflicted with the time jump, i’m not because i just hate the concept of time jump especially in this show because its deals with super heavy plots. We can cross out fingers and hope the writers wont shit everything! (but i only trust them like 30% so…)
Category: Percabeth, Post war, Post HoO, Fluffy, Pointless, 1580 words, all text messages.
Warning: It’s ridiculous???
Summary: Annabeth is out with some friends to try to find a good dress for a party, and Percy is left alone for the day in their little appartment. These are the whatsapps exchanged during that day.
Note: Ok, so this is just a ridiculous piece of nothing that popped into my head just yesterday and I HAD to write. So basically I’ve been meaning to write a Percabeth message conversation only for a week, and then yesterday I was reading Hannah’s fics with the prompt meme, and I thought, why don’t I write a fanfic using all the prompts? And so I did. It’s ridiculous, pontless, some parts may even be senseless, but I hope you enjoy it anyway. Oh, PS, let’s pretend that cellphones are ok or that someone developed one that demigods can use or something like that. OH! PS number two: it doesn’t look like they’re texts because nothing is abreviated, but I’m brazilian, so I decided to go for the whole word instead of using things I’m not used to. Forgive me. Bold is Percy, Italic is Annabeth.
There are some a lot of things in that article (that had kindly been uploaded here) that didn’t sit well with me at all. There were just general stupid things - the author seeming to be surprised that they won’t reveal where they live, calling dan arrogant because he’s aware of the fanbase they have etc, however there were particular things that stood out to me.These are just my opinions, so i understand if you don’t see the same way as i do :) [thanks to @rufflehowell who was discussing this with me this morning and pointed out some of these things] i wrote so much bloody hell sorry
awe was full of tragic endings BUT CAN WE TALK ABOUT HOW LIZZIE'S WAS THE WORST?? HER FATHER IS DEAD, JAMES IS DEAD, SHE HAS TO WAIT FOR A HUSBAND SHE CAN ONLY SEE ONCE IN 10 YRS, JACK IS THE ONLY THING SHE HAS LEFT IN THE WORLD AND SHE CANT EVEN LOOK AT HIM AND THAT DARKNESS HASN'T LEFT HER, BUT NOW SHE HAS NO ONE TO HELP HER OUT OF IT, WILL AT LEAST GOT HIS FATHER OUT OF THIS MESS, BUT ELIZABETH LOST EVERYTHING AND EVERYONE AND SHE IS SO ALONE IN THAT FUCKING ISLAND I AM NOT OK NOTHING IS OK
cont: I JUST HAVE ALL THE FEELS FOR HER OK? we’re always talking about jack and his pain and how it must have hurt that she betrayed him and im sooo ok with that yk but ELIZABETH. ELIZABETH IS DEFINITELY THE ONE WHO GOT FUCKED OVER THE MOST i mean just think about the fathers in these movies, we got to see all three main characters’ fathers AND ONLY ELIZABETH’S DIED. HOW FUCKED UP IS THAT? THAT SCENE WHEN SHE HAS TO WATCH HER FATHER FLOAT AWAY TO DEATH AND SHE’S KICKING AND SCREAMING TO GET HIM BACK?? THAT SCENE JUST BREAKS MY HEART IN SO MANY LEVELS it hurt back in 2007 but now i /know/ what that feels like, i lost my dad like 3 years ago and it hurt like fucking hell and now i see that scene and GOD IT FUCKING HURTS?? THE WAY SHE’S BEGGING AND STRUGGLING FOR THEM TO LET HER DO /SOMETHING/?? TO LET HER SAVE HER FATHER?? how is it fucking fair that Will got to save his dad but Elizabeth didn’t? was it really so fucking wrong to get him on board the pearl and bring him back to life with them? AND I JUST HURT SO MUCH FOR HER MY PRECIOUS BABY GIRL YOU DESERVED SO MUCH BETTER. (and im so sorry for flooding you inbox darling but i HAVE ALL THE FEELS SHE IS SO PRECIOUS AND AMAZING AND MUST BE PROTECTED AT ALL COSTS BUT SHE CAN DO THAT BY HERSELF AND GRIEF HAS ONLY MADE HER STRONGER JESUS CHRIST IM NOT CRYING I SWEAR I AM NOT
omfgg mariel last night after making that elizabeth’s picspam i THOUGHT ABOUT THE EXACT SAME THING
ELIZABETH SWANN IS LEFT BEHIND AND ALONE
SO UTTERLY ALONE IT HURTS
like she doesn’t have anyone??? her father is dead, her mother is dead, JAMES NORRINGTON IS DEAD, jack sparrow is god knows where and WILL TURNER IS BOUND TO A SHIP FOR TEN YEARS but wow look even will has his father ON BOARD while elizabeth is just there on land, friendless (because the movies didn’t care to give her lady-friends or wait, any friends at all) and alone (and yeah pregnant but she doesn’t know that right away)
and ugghhh that scene where she just watches her father go away is sooo heartbreaking (and i’m soo sorry to hear about your father mariel :((( *hugs you*) but on the other hand ikr??? why is barbossa back and not him? was it because the governor accepted his death and wanted to go?
ANYWAY our baby girllll she can take care of herself but it’s soo unfair really and i still don’t get why couldn’t she get back to the pearl and help jack look for the fountain of youth?? like it would have made perfect sense but yeah having her on land with the chest for all company is so much better!11!1! like damn yeah it was pretty and “take care of my heart” and the green flash and everything but it’s just so vague and ????
