this is the only bromance that matters

“Does it hurt anymore?” A tribute to Cody Christian’s character Theo Raeken.

Plenty of people were convinced that Theo Raeken would not make an appearance in the final episode of Teen Wolf. Plenty of them thought that Theo Raeken was going to die in episode 19. However, he was neither in episode 19 nor died whilst taking a bullet for Malia with Stiles shouting her name, as so many spoilers indicated. This merely proves that we should not be too keen on believing what we read on the Internet.

We see Theo in his truck, talking to Scott on his phone. The Alpha asked the chimera for help. That’s why he is on his way to the hospital. Old Theo would not have done so. Old Theo would have long been gone, selfishly only saving his own ass. However, Old Theo literally is gone. We will learn what that means later on, once Theo has arrived at Beacon Hills Hospital.

Liam is there, confronted by several hunters with guns aimed at him. His situation seems hopeless, but the elevator doors fling open and Theo pulls the beta inside. The doors close before the hunters’ bullets can do any harm. This certainly brings the Thiam scene in 6x09 to mind where Theo pushed Liam into the elevator and became the bait himself, ready to risk his life lest the beta was taken.

This time, however, they are both in the elevator, staring at each other.

What are you doing here?”  Liam asks.
“I was just asking myself the same thing,”

 Theo simply replies. The chimera wants to help. He is ready to fight the hunters, to keep Scott’s pack safe. He is ready to keep Scott’s beta safe. We can literally feel the tension between Theo and Liam in these few seconds inside the confinement of the elevator.

A heads up for Thiam-fans: Jeff Davis actually was wondering himself why they did not kiss in the end. Khylin Rhambo mentioned that during the screening, everyone thought that “they were gonna do it”. Cody and Dylan obviously enjoyed working together and their chemistry is amazing, no matter if you would like to see Theo and Liam as an actual couple or friends. They were definitely bonding. Cody and Dylan loved the fans’ response to their bromance. Dylan is like a little brother to Cody and the only thing we could possibly regret is that Theo and Liam did not have the chance to develop their friendship a tiny bit sooner.

I’m not dying for you.

–– I’m not dying for you either. But I will… fight with you.

Okay. That’s fine.

 Although they do not say so, we just know that they care about each other. They would probably not even admit that they do. They are a team and respect one another. The doors open and we finally see these two in action again. Their eyes glow, razor sharp fangs and claws emerge. THIAM are ready to fight. And they fight in unison.

Their fighting scene is yet another highlight of the finale. As I said in one of my previous articles, Theo and Liam are strong alone, but lethal when they join forces.

These two, who were so reluctant to even be in the same room together at the beginning (just think about their scenes in front of the hospital and Liam wanting to use Theo as bait), slowly began to trust each other. Everyone needs someone they can count on, someone who does not question anything they do.

However, both are injured in the fight. One of the teenage hunters, Gabe, takes several bullets by mistake. He is in excruciating pain, moribund. The teenager is bleeding to death. 

And here comes Theo’s triumphant scene. Theo approaches Gabe, who’s lying in a puddle of his own blood. “It hurts,” he says. His voice is brittle.

Theo takes Gabe’s arm. “You can’t take the pain if you don’t care,” Mason told him in episode 18. This time, however, Theo shows kindness. Dark veins emerge on Gabe’s arm, drawn to Theo’s hand. He takes Gabe’s pain away. He knows what it is like to care. 

Does it hurt anymore?
-       No.

The chimera’s redemption arc is completed. He proved how altruistic he has become. Theo does not only care about himself anymore. Theo has a heart. Cody Christian shows that he does.

Now I am not surprised that this was Cody’s favourite scene. It was emotional, sad but also an act of kindness. Theo hardly knew Gabe at all. Gabe was one of the hunters. Yet, he proved that he cares.

Now we have allies that used to be enemies. We have protectors, we have friends willing to fight for us.

Theo has proven himself. He is an ally the pack can count on. It is a bit sad that quite a few questions remain unanswered. I would have loved to find out more about Theo’s childhood. How he ended up with the dread doctors. How he became the first chimera, why he stopped caring. I would have loved to see Liam offer him a place to stay since he can’t stay in his truck forever. Or Theo helping Liam handle his anger issues. 

Nevertheless, Theo Raeken is fine. He is out there, safe and sound. Driving around in his truck. Maybe he even joins Liam, Mason and Corey to play some video games from time to time. He’s still a teenager after all. Sometimes you just need to have some fun, right?

Thank you, Cody, for bringing Theo Raeken to life. It was you who assured with your outstanding performance that this character was not killed off, as originally intended. I cannot wait to see what’s next for Cody. He is destined for greatness and people just need to realize it. He, as so many others out there, inspires people every day. He creates something we can indulge in. Something we will never forget. It is not only the story that made us adore Teen Wolf, but the actors behind it all. People who make you feel better when you have a bad day. Thank you for all these amazing years.

I know I said I learned my lesson last time… but I’m also a strong believer in second chances. Which is why I’ve decided to replace all the Camembert in the house… with skim-milk mozzarella cheese sticks.

Suffer, you sentient bobble-headed incarnation of abject humiliation.

  • But you’re so used to it you usually just laugh or something and he’s like TAKE ME SERIOUSLY DAMMIT
  • Late night sleepovers with him and sometimes Jeonghan and Jun where you guys wear face masks and talk shit about anyone who’s bothering you and watch whatever kdrama one of you is hooked on 
  • He always has the best comebacks so if anyone dares mess with you when he’s around, savage The8 comes out and the person winds up running off with their tail between their legs and he’s just “damn right”
  • Fully expects you to run every decision by him and acts offended when you don’t
  • Also expects you to update him on everything
  • He may leave other people on read but not you because what if someone hit on you or what if you forgot something at the store??? He needs to know these important updates especially ones like the former 
  • If you even breathe a word of complaint to him about being single he’s gonna try and set you up
  • And half the time it’s with these drop dead idol level gorgeous people and you’re like “dhjasfhe MINGHAO I CARE BARELY LOOK THEM IN THE EYE”
  • And he’s just “um??? Only the best for my bestie you should be thanking me”
  • No one messes with you when they learn Minghao is your best friend because 1) the boy can serve a comeback like nobody’s business and 2) he has demonstrated his martial arts techniques and everyone is pretty sure he can suplex them and 3) he is an idol with connections dammit
  • To him, you’re his rock really, he wouldn’t date anyone you didn’t approve of and if someone had a problem with you, he’d choose you in a heartbeat

In Appreciation of Hector Barbossa – The pirate we all love to hate–love.

First, I must start off by saying I love almost everything the actor Geoffrey Rush has done in his career thus far. He is one of my all-time favorite actors who brings vigor and honesty to all his roles, which is outright mind boggling. One thinks of his amazing portrayal as the musical prodigy David Helfgott in SHINE, chillingly like the man himself. Or Mr. Rush portraying the sincere psychologist and mentor to the King of England in THE KNGS SPEECH. One thinks of his deviously witty and outstanding performance as the lusty Marquis in QUILLS. No matter who he portrays, Geoffrey Rush always gives a top-notch and believable, if not mesmerizing performance. Mr. Rush forever puts a tremendous amount of gusto and heart into his roles which are memorable, and many of them Oscar noteworthy.

Gentle reminder that in the beginning, Merlin thought he was useless and might as well be dead. That the years before he came to Camelot were some of the loneliest of his life. That he needed to be reassured that he wasn't a monster. That when he first came to Camelot, he witnessed the death of a man who had magic, something he always felt isolated for. Remember that he finally found a purpose, a reason to live (and die). That he found the best friend he would ever have and how he worked so hard and lost so much just to make sure his friend was safe, only to lose him, too. I would imagine that all the things he felt before Camelot are the things he felt after his purpose fell apart in his arms, but at a greater strength. Reminder that Merlin can't fucking die, no matter how much he would like to. We all know he would.

Dramaland Forecast: October 2017

Previously: 2016 - Jan - Feb - Mar - Apr - May - June - July - Aug - Sept


  • Circle – after assiduously avoiding spoilers for months, I finally watched it! Thanks to a long plane ride, I pretty much binged it in one go, which I’m thinking is the best way to watch because I don’t know how I would have handled those cliffhangers. And I loved the show! It definitely lived up to my expectations and more, and I wish we could have more such sci-fi shows in the future (maybe a second season? Because I was wondering why we hadn’t focused on the fact that this is alien technology but that final scene made me go “yesssssss let’s do this!”).
  • Secret Forest – I don’t know if I wasn’t in the right frame of mind when I was watching, but after all the hype this show got I was actually mildly disappointed that I didn’t love it as much as I thought I would. It was a well done show and everyone involved should be proud, but like Shi-mok, I just couldn’t seem to connect to it emotionally.
  • Strongest Deliveryman – what a wonderful and endearing drama this turned out to be! While it didn’t give us anything particularly new, it did manage to switch up some standard tropes and provide a cast of characters that I fell completely in love with – from the leads to the smaller, minor roles. I’m usually the last one who wishes drama to have extensions, but I think this drama could have comfortably gone for 20 episodes. There’s an element of the family weekend drama that made me wish I could spend more time with everyone and linger in the small, happy moments of their lives.
  • Manhole – my expectations were sub-zero and I was happy watching pretty people acting ridiculously (well, mostly Jaejoong running), but the drama decided to forget the one fun thing (magic manhole time travel!) and instead focused on a very boring and unnecessary psychopath stalker storyline that did this pitiful show no favors. Also, you’d think the main character would have had some sort of growth zipping around time and realizing his actions have consequences, but no. Apparently if you screw around in time enough you can win the girl without any self-reflection or, y’know, actually working on your own life. Jaejoong’s still hella pretty, though.

Currently watching:

  • Temperature of Love
  • Lingerie Generation/Girls Generation 1979 – technically this is a “plan to watch,” but I’m looking forward to binging this short drama (hopefully soon!).


  • While You Were Sleeping – yep, I’m the weirdo who’s not really a fan of Lee Jong Suk (and this writer isn’t one of my faves), so while I was originally interested after discovering cutie Hae In would be in it, I think I’ll give it pass.
  • Go Back Couple – I really like Jung Nara and Son Ho Joon, but nothing about this immediately appeals, although there’s a chance it will be added to the “watch” pile eventually.

Upcoming dramas of interest:

  • 20th Century Boy and Girl – I’m most excited about this one because of the cast, premise, and production team, although I’m not exactly sure if it’s a drama I’ll stick with since my track record for rom-coms is pretty terrible.
  • Witch’s Courtroom – the premise isn’t exactly enticing (I am So. Dang. Tired. of prosecutors), and a show dealing with sex crimes will probably make me So Angry, but I adore Jung Ryeo Won and Yoon Hyun Min, which is a combination so tempting that I’ll at least keep it on my radar.
  • Avengers Social Club – I don’t know anything about the original webtoon, but the cast (my queen Lee Yo Won! Ra Mi Ran!) and premise (women getting together for revenge but finding friendship!) are appealing. 
  • Mad Dog – I don’t know much about this drama other than it stars Yoo Ji Tae (y’all) looking badass, which is enough to get my attention.
  • The Package – as someone who adores France and who once (and still sometimes does) considered a career as a tour director, I’m definitely looking forward to this travel porn.
  • Revolutionary Love – Choi Siwon and Kang Sora starring in a rom-com! This sounds delightful (the teasers totally cracked me up) and it could be a perfect kind of drama brain-candy that is fun without being too stupid or annoying.
  • Black – OCN has been doing an incredible job this year with their Sat/Sun original line-up, so I’m going into this with the expectation that it will be slick and full of intrigue. It also stars goddess Lee El (well, in a supporting role, but still). The premise has me scratching my head, but I’m sure it will be gripping no matter what. (Unless, y’know, it’s the one OCN dud of the year.)
  • Two Cops – I was already vaguely interested because it’s Jo Jung Suk’s latest drama, but then Hoya signed on and I was like OMG YES BEST DRAMA EVER (and his role sounds like there will be SO MUCH BROMANCE with JJS – my heart won’t be able to take it!). Also Kim Sun Ho, he of the magnificent dimples, has also been cast, so I am ALL IN with whatever shenanigans this show tries to send my way. My only complaint is that Hyeri is cast as the female lead, which is annoying because there are plenty of amazing and funny actresses in their thirties who would be a wonderful match for JJS, but it HAS HOYA SO WHAT ELSE MATTERS.

anonymous asked:

Look, tomco is good, but only as a bromance, I just don't see them as a couple, I'm sorry, I like the bromance they have but yeah I don't think a lot of people want to see something like that...well not yet

Only as a bromance?

Dude, you don’t have to ship them. But you can’t really come here and tell me it’s only good as a friendship and state that as pure fact.

They’ve had plenty of moments that do imply romance.

Not to mention this:

Bromance:  a close but nonsexual relationship between two men.

“If i was nonsexually getting close with you Marco…..If i was (Because for some reason Tom needs to reassure himself here), you would know it.”

Tom, what in the world are you talking about ? XDD

(I mean either they mean that or something else by “Bromancing” and no matter which way it sounds, it comes out like Tom is trying to imply something romantic )

Tom and Marco do make good friends, but they have couple potential. Tom’s a hopeless romantic and clearly very loyal, as well as accepting of people. Marco’s insecurities would unlikely bother him. and Marco’s lack of fear and compassion for Tom and what he’s going through is really sweet.

You could imagine Marco taking his hand to reassure him, and telling him that at least he’ll always have him to support him and help him even when things go wrong.

You don’t think alot of people want Tomco to happen? Tomco is a pretty big ship in the fandom….

My followers, If you would like to see tomco happen, put some notes on this post.


The final part of this analysis!

Okay, so, yes, there are skips, but no one videoed the whole thing beginning to end, so this is what we have to work with. 

This was my FIRST time watching this part of the panel, and though KJ seems almost asleep for most of this, there are still some major moments. 

So, sit back and enjoy the final part of this panel analysis!

16:35 - Leanne asks when we are going to meet Jellybean. CS says she’s a figment of his imagination and then Cami says she is him. CS has kept this joke going for a while, even using it to wish an actor friend a happy birthday. In the post, he says it’s a rumor, not a joke, of course, it’s a joke since Jellybean is supposed to be 12, but the joke doesn’t seem to be based on CS being male, just on his age. Could an mtf Jellybean be a possibility? I don’t know, I’m just shooting darts and also really just hoping for better representation.

17:13 - RAS mentions he wished that Jughead had said that Jellybean was 16 and CS’ brother, ergo, Dylan and you watch as the realization of what RAS is talking about hits KJ. He gets VISIBLY annoyed. I have NO idea what happened between KJ and Dylan, but that this point, they were not friends.

17:22 - CS speaks about Dylan in a joking tone, but from the look KJ gives him to the look he gives back to the tangible tension between the actors, it’s clear that CS isn’t joking at all. CS says he has the least pull out of all of them and then for some strange reason, Leanne says, “it’s up to you KJ.” KJ literally stays frozen for a good few seconds after that. This has to be the most uncomfortable moment of this entire panel.

21:48 - CS chooses Betty and you kind of expect their responses to be excited? Or something? But Cami seems more worried for CS than anything, and sure enough, KJ and CS lock eyes and KJ says Veronica, which he’s NEVER said before, he always says Jughead. And then Lili kind of leans back in her chair in a way that suggests she wasn’t expecting that and doesn’t really like what it means.

22:39 - The only thing I need in life is to see this twitter photo and figure out why the hell he deleted it since CS doesn’t seem able to mention anything else ever.

22:56 - First time we’ve heard CS call his relationship with KJ “fate” and remember this is the same interview where CS said it’s a romance, not a bromance and now he’s calling it fate. Soulmates much?

26:29 - KJ says he’d like to see Archie settle down in a relationship. At first CS smiles and then he bites his tongue in almost a smug manner. You know, as if KJ is settled down, with him.

26:36 - The most interesting part is how KJ answered this question. He starts by saying he wants Archie to settle down and then immediately talks about more scenes with Jughead, of course, but these don’t exactly seem like two separate thoughts. I mean he’s said he’s team Jughead more times than I can count. He’s now saying he ships Hotdog and Vegas. It’s only a matter of time before he comes right out and says he wants Jarchie to happen.

26:38 - “Me and CS should….” And then he just stops. He knew whatever he was going to say wouldn’t fly. KJ’s thought process goes right over Cami’s head and she says “bromance” for whatever insane reason, but, Ash gets it and says something KJ can’t. “Maybe if you make out with him, you guys will be friends again.” KJ looks IMMEDIATELY to RAS.

26:46 - I COULD be wrong, but it sounds like CS says “yep, I mean, I’m in a relationship with him.” And then looks innocent as a fucking toddler. Did I hear that right?

26:51 - At the EXACT same second, CS and KJ say, in response to Fred buying Archie shirts “maybe ones that actually fit.” It’s a really cute coupley moment, which CS seems to agree with since he spends the next few seconds smiling quietly to himself.

27:42 - It should be clear by now that Leanne knows more than most interviewers. She was the one to interview KJ when he admitted to wanting fans to read into him saying banana milkshakes bring the boys to the yard, she did the comic con ET interview this year when KJ and CS were entirely in their own world just acting extremely loved up, and KJ follows her on insta. CS doesn’t normally do this, but he waits for her and then puts his arm around her as they leave the stage. Conclusion, Leanne knows about KJ and CS and is one of their biggest advocates in the media. It’s really nice to know they have one.

And, that’s it, that’s the end of the WonderCon panel.

Hope you enjoyed!

Heteronormativity’s Nightmare is going to watch Shameless now. 

School 2017; Episode 12

okay, so where do i even begin?¿?? first, i just want to appreciate the heart to heart moment taewoon and daehwi had. i think that they honestly really needed to just talk and open up about the things they were bottling up,, it was good to see them finally not antagonising each other. tbh it’s the only bromance that matters lmao ⌒°(❛ᴗ❛)°⌒

it was also nice to see some team x moments. i loved how they pulled a fast one on heechan and the principal lol. it’s good how bora’s character is developing and so is taewoon and daehwi’s friendship and of course, eunho and taewoon’s relationship too.

now onto the one and only hyun taewoon and ra eunho aka lemonade couple. what can i say… it was quite rocky at the start of the episode and i think that continuing on from what happened the night before, they probably didn’t realise that they were hurting each other. i’m glad they pulled through and survived the obstacles they faced. also, can i just say that daehwi is lowkey shipping them? like yASSSS BOO,, but anyways the ending was honestly all i could ever ask for. when he said “today is our first day (meaning from now on, we’re dating) my heart melted like where did he learn to be so smooth like that?? ۶ꈨຶꎁꈨຶ honestly when he pulled her closer, i sCREAMED. i’m literally so in love with their love like how is that even possible?¿?? i’m honestly waiting for more of their sweet moments next week and also i just want to add that junghyun and sejeong’s chemistry is honestly so real ?? but anyways, now that they’re dating there’s a lot more sweet moments to come but i’m pretty sure we’re still gonna have to go through some angst during the next 4 episodes.

speaking of 4 episodes, that means there’s only two weeks left until it ends and i’m not ready to let go of eunho and taewoon or team x ;﹏; i honestly think that this drama needs a second season bc this deserves so many more episodes.

anyway, at least i can finally be at peace, knowing that eunho and taewoon are fiNALLY together.

I love your blog and your Animorphs analyses! I was wondering, what are your favorite two-person relationships (platonic or otherwise) in the team? Or if you'd like to talk about how you see each and every character pair in the team, I'd be really interested in your thoughts - but if you'd rather not get that lengthy, I'd love just to hear about your favorite dynamics. :)

Let’s talk about Rachel and Jake.  Let’s talk about how it is so easy to forget that Jake is the baby of his family whereas Rachel’s the oldest child in hers until you run into all the moments where they act like a big sister and little brother to one another.  About the fact that Rachel never lets anyone tell her what to do unless it’s Jake, because he’s the only person alive she trusts more than herself.  About Jake freely admitting time and again that he never would have made it through the war without Rachel’s support.  About Rachel turning down the chance to end the war and save herself because the life of this one guy who is friend and family and compatriot to her is too high a price to pay.  

Let’s talk about the number of times Jake compares Rachel to a superhero: Storm, Rogue, Wonder Woman.  About Rachel telling Marco that she hopes Jake would make the decision about whether to kill a family member for her, because she trusts his judgment more than her own.  About the fact that, as far as I can tell, the only time Rachel drops the “L” word is when Visser Four insists that she won’t kill him and she says “oh, but I can… you killed someone I love” (MM3).  About how well these two trust and know each other literally from the first minute they find themselves running from hork-bajir-controllers through the construction site.  About Jake still going to visit Rachel every day after her death because she’s the only one who would understand all the terrible things he’s done.

Their friendship (siblingship? bromance?) is so awesome specifically because it’s built on the understanding that neither one of them is a particularly good person, but that these two are willing to use that grittiness to stand between Cassie-Marco-Tobias-Ax and the harshest realities of the war.  It’s not just about the fact that Rachel assumes responsibility for David because she feels like she can take on that burden if and only if it will spare Cassie from doing the same (#22, #48).  It’s not just Jake insisting on always, always putting a good face on his own summation of the mission no matter how much he hates himself at the time (#25, #36, #16).  It’s also about these two literally being the first into battle and the last to retreat time after time (#41, #36, #2, #53, half the books in the series) because they are the only ones who can laugh off fatal wounds and keep going for the hell of it.  Cassie and Ax are each in their own way idealists.  Tobias and Marco might be more cynical, but they’re also both more emotionally vulnerable.  Jake and Rachel see their darkest selves reflected in one another—Rachel’s the only one who knows that Jake’s addicted to the power, just like Jake’s the only one who realizes that so much of Rachel’s rage is driven by arrogance—and use those demons to do what they must to protect their friends.  

Not only that, but while Jake is so concerned with protecting the team as a whole, Rachel is the only one who protects Jake.  When facing David in the shopping mall (#22), when attacking Ax for challenging Jake (#18), when struggling to shield him from Visser Three and being trapped in morph (#2), when threatening to kill Tom to keep him away from Jake (#53), Rachel is the one who ensures that anyone who hurts her cousin is going to thoroughly regret it.

A rundown of my favorite moments between them, in no particular order:

On my way out of math class, Jake came sidling up next to me. “Meeting later, okay?… The church tower, where we were the other day.”
“Okay, but it’s a long walk.”
He turned around to face me, walking backward and grinning. “So don’t walk,” he said. (#2)

  • I love how, even after surviving one god-awful battle where both Jake’s brother and Rachel’s soon-to-be-boyfriend were casualties, these two are still riding the high of being able to morph so much that they still swagger around like they’re invincible.  They’re both total adrenaline junkies well before the war begins (Rachel showing off with dangerous vaults, Jake climbing abandoned cranes) and the chance to fall out of the sky at 200 miles per hour without going splat on the ground is a dream come true for them both.  

Tom flinched. Too late! The baseball bat came down hard on his gun hand.  "Ahhh!“ he yelled. The ray gun clattered down the steps. The bat came up fast, caught Tom in the face. Then, one! Two! Three!
Three stiff, hard blows and Tom was down, curled in a ball, groaning, eyes rolling, blood gushing from his nose and ear.
I stared at my cousin. Rachel was breathing hard. But her outfit, hair, and makeup had remained perfect. (MM4)

  • Rachel showing up out of NOWHERE and saving Jake’s sorry butt will forever be one of my favorite moments in the whole series, because she has no clue what’s going on.  She just sees her cousin hurting his little brother and intervenes with maximal force.  Jake and Rachel die in this book without ever figuring out what yeerks are, who Ax is, or how bad the war has gotten, but they also go down fighting.  Even without information, even without their ultimate super-weapon, if they see a wrong then they will pick up whatever weapon comes to hand and start trying to fight back.  

<Rachel! Explain to David that he needs to knock it off!> I snapped.
Rachel was on all fours. She half rose up to a sort of bear crouch. She reached out with her left paw and swung hard. She connected with David’s snarling, snapping jaw. David staggered. (#21)

  • This moment is not, perhaps, particularly flattering toward either of the Berensons.  Jake is ordering Rachel to physically harm a kid their own age in order to enforce his leadership, and Rachel is obeying without question or even any need for clarification about what Jake means.  However, it also shows just how much these two trust each other and grasp that sometimes any means will justify the end of saving one’s team’s lives.  

“Okay, fine, Rachel. You want to do this, fine. I think you’re the bravest member of the group. I think in a bad fight I’d rather have you with me than anyone else. But yeah, Rachel, I think there’s something pretty dark down inside you. I think you’re the only one of us who would be disappointed if all this ended tomorrow… It’s what makes you so brave. It’s what makes you so dangerous to the Yeerks… I feel like this war is to you like booze is to an alcoholic. Like I don’t know what will happen to you if it all ends someday. What are you going to do? Go back to being the world’s greatest shopper? Go back to gymnastics and getting good grades?”
I laughed harshly. “You worry about me? What do you think you’re going to do? Jake, you’re a leader now. You make life-and-death decisions. All the time. You’ve learned to do that. And,” I added bitterly, “you’ve learned to use people. You use them for their strengths and their weaknesses. Worry about me? Like when all this is over you’ll go back to being a mediocre basketball player and a decent student? You’re not even in high school yet and you’re the most wanted person in the Yeerk Empire. Visser Three would trade his Blade ship for your head on a stick… Maybe I do kind of get off on it all. But I still know where the line is. And I won’t cross it. I am not some kind of nut. I know what I’m doing.”
Jake nodded. “I know you do. But everyone draws their own line. Cassie’s is in one place. Marco’s is somewhere else. Yours is in another. Mine .. .” He made a failed attempt at a smile. “For example, see, I used to think my line was drawn at using my friend, my cousin, to do my dirty work. Guess that turned out not to be true. Sorry, Rachel.”
I have no idea why I did what happened next. Because I’m really not that kind of person. But I hugged Jake. And he hugged me back. (#22)

  • Jake and Rachel are fairly terrible people, as I mentioned before.  They enjoy the war, they miss it when they’re not fighting it, and they thrill in the power it gives them.  But they also know right from wrong. They know that they’re not like other kids their age, and they’ve already accrued irreparable damage to their morals standards by the time they are at the point of debating how to kill one of their teammates.  They also recognize that they are in this together, and that they are willing to get their own hands dirty if it keeps their friends’ clean.

I explained what I wanted her to do.
<You’re sure, Jake?> she asked solemnly when I had finished. <Because if you tell me “Go!” I’ll follow your orders. You know what that means.><Yeah, Rachel, I know what it means.>
Still she hesitated. <It won’t be the Yeerk, Jake. It’ll be Tom. It’ll be him.
<I know that,> I said. <And I … if it happens, if it comes down that way, I don’t have a plan for getting you out. You’d be on your own.>
<That’s how I like it.>… Rachel said, <Okay, Jake. You’re right. And you’re right to use me for this. Not exactly something I’m proud of, maybe, but later, you know, if — don’t be blaming yourself, okay?>  She angled her eagle’s wings to take the wind, and flew away. (#53)

  • Jake asks Rachel to kill her cousin and then get herself killed in turn… and she responds with compassion.  Jake is right that she is the only one capable of completing this mission, as she freely admits herself, but she also understands that he’s the only one capable of making this decision.  The situation sucks all around, and they can’t do a thing to change that fact, so Rachel’s right: the only thing for it is to go forward, and not to let Jake blame himself.  Of course, that doesn’t exactly work… But we all appreciate her trying.  

I stopped walking. I looked at Jake. “How do you do this? How do you make decisions that may get people killed? How do you live with that?”
“It’s a war,” he said. “We do what we have to do because we’re forced to do it, right? Someday it will all be over. Someday the Andalites will come. Or the Yeerks will decide we’re not worth it. Someday we’ll win.”
“Maybe. But how do you make decisions that get your friends hurt? That maybe someday will get us killed? How do you keep it from getting inside your head and just eating away at you?”
Then I saw something strange on his face. For just a fleeting moment it was the face of a terrified kid on the edge of tears. It shocked me. I knew what I was seeing. It was my face when I’d realized the old man had died. My face when I thought I’d lost Cassie forever.  But then the mask came down. And he was Jake again. “I don’t think about it,” he lied. (#37)

ok so calm down and let me follow some other people in breaking it down

jb said : 남자 둘이서 오는 곳은 아니야 / (a cafe) isn’t a place where two guys meet alone

— take this as you will, but they both seemed awkward and cafes are typically where couples go in korea for dates or 소개팅 (blind dates). so take it as you will.

youngjae said : 너와 함께 오고 싶었어 ~ / I wanted to come here together with you ~

— this is a cheesy joke. youngjae was being really sincere-looking and probably has fun making jb uncomfortable for obvious reasons

jb then said : 아…..그런 맨트 하지마…때리고 같은데 하지마 / oh god…..dont make a comment like that…i think imma hit you dont say that

— while reacting to the cheesy joke, he said something that many people say in reply to cheesy jokes. “i’ll hit you” doesn’t mean “i’ll beat you up” in a serious sense. in translation it may seem like a bully-like thing to say in america, but in korea thats just how these jokes roll. i say it all the time with my korean friends and my cousins and even my mother.

take it as you will but for everyone who has been going overboard with the negativity, just please understand you’re dealing with a culture that is very different from the western part of the world. jumping to conclusions is a dangerous thing, and while your opinions are valid — just be careful about what you say.

they’re two guys on television, on a show called bromance (aka an english/western term). LGBTQ+ issues are way more fucking serious than “oppa” saying “imma hit u dont say that” to a cheesily romantic comment

korea ( along with east asia, but i only have experience of being korean so i wont speak for china or japan ) has a strong sense of homophobia, there are movies about how being gay is a stigma of sorts, there are scary stories of kids getting bullied because other kids think they’re gay. there is only one small place ( i believe in incheon?? ) where there are open gay clubs. ONE. ONE AREA IN THE WHOLE COUNTRY.

listen, my parents do not support gay marriage. i argue with them so fucking much about it because they think america had “lost their prestige” whaTEVER THE FUCK THAT MEANS. but they think lower of america because of the gay marriage.

its fucked up. but that’s how korea works. you can say its wrong and you dont have to agree with it. because i say its wrong and i dont agree with it.m all the fucking time and i’m korean.

but don’t look at your oppa and think he’s the most perfect human being on earth. jb may or may not be homophobic. WHO KNOWS bc i dont fuckin know i dont know the guy. but whether you agree or not doesnt mean sending DEATH THREATS I MEAN HELLO THATS WRONG ON SO MANY LEVELS????? theyre two guys on tv and maybe jb doesnt want people to get the wrong idea because of the setting and the bromance and the situation

the social issue of gay people in korea is a SERIOUS matter and it cannot be determined by a single moment of dialogue in a show called bromance.

please don’t make this a homophobia argument if this is your example. trust me, people write books about this shit because it’s so serious. i dont even care about what jb said

i’m pissed about the reactions and the audacity people have to act like they know exactly what it’s like to be a queer person in a fucking conservative country that had to have help from america to become a democracy after the korean war aka only 60 years ago.

im sorry but if you don’t even know anything about the topic don’t go sending death threats or sending hate to people who are explaining the situation or to the guy who filmed this like three weeks ago

anonymous asked:

Fam....I can't. People are saying that not shipping Klance is homophobic when Lance has only been shown to like women and even if he's bisexual he doesn't even consider Keith his fucking type with all the arguing and yelling they do at each other. At the most I can see them as a bromance but saying that Keith is gay no matter what when he has yet to be in a romantic relationship in the series??? That's fucked.

Ppl who accuse you of homophobia simply bc you don’t ship kl@nce need to get a fucking life bc it’s literally just trivialising homophobia which is gross as shit and damaging

a-villainous-cat  asked:

*kicks Allen out of the room* I'LL LET YA BACK IN IN A SEC *cough cough* ok you... the rest of you 2Ps, what do you think of the guy I just temporarily booted out of here? (I'm just curious for some reason)

((Okay! I’ve been meaning to do something like this… eventually.))

Relations: 2P!America / Allen Jones

2P!China: They have a very friendly and boyish relationship. They get along well, mostly by telling stupid guy jokes, playing pranks on their friends, and acting like immature teenagers together. Zao, though, really looks up to Allen and sees him as his best friend. He thinks Allen’s really cool and fun, compared to his other friends. Allen wouldn’t have met Zao if he didn’t start off as his drug dealer. However, seeing how addicted Zao was made him less into drugs. Still, they’re “bros for life”, even if Allen hardly admits how close they are and/or pretends Zao annoys him.

2P!England: He loves, loves, loves Allen with all his heart. He “mother-smothers” him all the time, such as adjusting his hair or clothing and promptly getting swatted away. He always wants to make sure he’s happy and in good health. He low-key brags about being his friend, always coos over him, and sometimes watches him with a dreamy look in his eyes. Allen occasionally gets annoyed with Oliver’s affection, but he sees him as one of his only true, loyal friends. Oliver’s the type of friend who hugs him every time he sees him. So, he’s content with being a close friend, but deep down, he very much wishes it could be more.

2P!France: He sees Allen as an acquaintance, but that’s only because it takes a while for him to warm up to people. Most others – including Allen – would see Francois as a distant friend. So, Allen sees him as such, and is comfortable chatting with him, inviting him to parties, or even smoking with him. Francois doesn’t mind his company, and he sees him as a strong kid who speaks his mind and can totally fend for himself out there; traits that Francois admires about him.

2P!Russia: Allen likes him. He thinks Ion’s “chill.” Ion, in return, thinks Allen’s a good leader but a little noisy and too easily angered. He doesn’t like to see him get in fights or shouting matches, so he’s usually the one to hold him back or tell him “you’re going to regret this.” Allen doesn’t mind; he sees Ion as one of his few “sane” friends (read: responsible). Ion’s the type of friend Allen would go to when he’s at a breaking point and/ or desperately needs someone to talk to. Sure, Ion’s not one of his friends he hangs out with to laugh or have a good time, but he damn well knows Ion’s a true friend who gives great advice.

2P!Italy: To put it in short, they despise each other. They can be in the same room without getting into a fight, yes, but not unless one of them provokes the other. It’s best they stay away from each other. They’re both considered “leaders” among their groups, so they’re very competitive around each other. They naturally don’t get along. Luciano hates Allen’s conceited and loud personality, while Allen hates Luciano’s stuck-up and two-faced personality. They’re both strong, and they’ll work together only if it’s absolutely necessary.

2P!Germany: “Brother from another mother” and “Bros before hoes” are common phrases they say around each other. Like Zao and Allen, he and Lutz are buddies who do stupid shit together, get at girls together, and drink together. They can be themselves around each other, and they often vent about stuff together. They have similar lifestyles and they can both relate to the other. They have the most fun at parties or bars, and sometimes they get a little too energetic and spontaneous together, which Luciano absolutely can’t stand.

2P!Japan: They’re friends in a weird way. They’re not close, but they’re not strangers either. They’re the type of friends who talk when no other friends are around, or the type of friends who rarely or never hang out after school. Kuro finds Allen idiotic but entertaining, and maybe just a little bit admirable. Allen thinks Kuro’s cool, composed, and kind of strange but interesting. He doesn’t feel this way about anyone else, really. They have the capability to become closer friends but not unless one of them actually tries.

2P!Canada: Some would think Matt puts up with him because he has to, but the truth is, he secretly likes “dealing” with Allen. It brings some spice to Matt’s occasionally dull life. He’s usually the one to put him in line, but that doesn’t mean Allen never pushes him over the edge. Meaning, make him angry. Allen knows it’s not good to piss off Matt so he rarely argues back with him; everyone knows a heated fight between Matt and Allen would get terrifyingly ugly. “But you’re my only real bro,” Allen always says. “I love you man.” Their relationship is complicated, but they’re really the only ones they can truly trust.

2P!Romano: They. Love. Each. Other. So. Much. Over 9,000 level bromance here. They can be sassy together, they can be classic Mean Girls together, they can be gossip trash and people-watch for hours. By people watch, it’s usually them insulting strangers, of course. Allen adores how Flavio accepts him no matter his high standards, and Flavio just loves himself a dorky and fabulous Allen. They may have a lot of fun together, but Allen still feels he can’t share most of his secrets with him, no matter how close they are.

2P!Austria: “You’re so creepy; I love you.” would be a good way to describe Allen’s half of their relationship. They’re not precisely friends, but Allen admires him and the things he can do. Whenever he sees him, he experiences a desire to be his friend, which usually results in him fanboying over Roland’s black magic and Roland brushing him off like, “I know I’m amazing, thank you very much you lil’ sugar cube.~” Roland doesn’t hold much interest in Allen. Roland would much rather be friends with people like Gilen, Flavio, Oliver, or Kuro.

2P!Prussia: He’s either invisible or ignored by Allen, which is totally fine by him because he’s kinda scared of him anyway. He finds him very intimidating and he wonders where he gets all that confidence. At times, he wishes he could be like him, but then he remembers how mean and rude Allen can be. So, Gilen usually just avoids him, even though there isn’t a need to seeing as Allen doesn’t ever notice him. Most of the time, Gilen’s either with Roland or Lutz anyway.
