anonymous asked:

There wasn't enough shipping material for your ship perhaps?

i wish it was just that but?? honestly?? lance’s only motivation through the entire thing was mostly just to put a nice show?? hunk barely had any dialogue or screentime?? most of allura’s scenes were of her as ‘keith’?? fucking keith himself was gone the whole season?? we got matt who was basically a male pidge with some of the main traits from both hunk and lance?? shiro is back to piloting black without any explanation?? kalternecker had more screentime than hunk?? lotor straight up killed my favorite galra general?? lotor and zarkon’s relationship is not explained nor explored?? coran had more character development and screentime than hunk lance and allura??? the pacing and tone changes were all off???

in OTH I am SO proud of the writers To not have tried to put Haley & Lucas together! I feel as if any other show would've done that!

It’s one of my favorite things about the show. Literally in Haley’s first scene in the pilot she clearly states this will “not be a Joey loves Dawson thing because that would be creepy” and they stick to that, to the very end. 

What is also great about Haley’s character (among many other things) is that she finds a relationship in S1 (with the jock, no less, and it looks like it’s going to be that stereotypical Jock/Nerd trope…but nope) and stays with that same person throughout the entirety of the series. Does she kiss Chris Keller? Sure. Does she go on tour and is she estranged from Nathan for awhile? Sure. But she never dates someone else, sleeps with someone else, falls in love with someone else, etc. He is it for her, and they are together for the entirety of the series. No typical “Why can’t they be together NOW” storylines, besides a small blip in S2/3 when she goes on tour (which I honestly think was just because she actually was on tour at the time so they had to write the storyline that way). And the same goes for Nathan, to be honest (in some aspects even more so). As soon as he finds Haley, he doesn’t even stray from her for a second, completely destroying the “asshole jock” typical trope that is so popular in TV series, like the writers think “Oh well this guy is popular and plays sports so obviously he has to cheat on his girlfriend. He’s charming though so the audience will forgive him.” Not in OTH, no sir-ee. 

I love that subtly, OTH breaks through so many typical TV tropes via characterization and at first you don’t even realize it but when you break it down you’re like damn, this show is so progressive sometimes (and occasionally not, but what can ya do)!

Okay but can you just imagine that that one scene never happened and the trio + BB-8 + Han + Chewie + R2D2 & C3PO + Leia all set off on the Millennium Falcon looking for Luke and became one big happy space family

  • Leia definitely mothers the Trio (”the kids” as Han calls them). Especially Rey and Finn, who never really knew their mothers.
  • Finn becomes very proficient in Dejarik, and he bonds even more with Chewie over it.  
  • The cockpit of the Falcon is often rather crowded, with Chewie obv still being Han’s main copilot, but sometimes switching out with Rey or Poe if the Wookie wants to take a break or has his arm twisted into another round of Dejarik with Finn. The two of them often hang out around there anyway.
  • Leading off of Leia becoming the Trio’s official space mom, she’s the first to notice Finn and Poe’s feelings for each other. It’s her that Finn turns to when wanting to talk things out, and she gently nudges him in Poe’s direction.
  • She also picks up on it when Rey starts falling for Jessika Pava. Again, Rey knows next to nothing about relationships or WHY THE BLOODY HELL SHE FEELS LIKE HER FACE IS ON FIRE AND HER HEART IS RACING LIKE A DESERT RODENT EVERY TIME SHE JUST SO HAPPENS TO SEE JESSIKA SWING OUT OF HER XWING AND TAKE OFF HER HELMET SWINGING HER HAIR LIKE SHE’S IN THE STAR WARS EQUIVALENT OF A L’OREAL COMMERCIAL so Leia gently informs her that she is not dying, these are called feelings, very gay feelings. And she is a very proud mom when Rey finally gets the courage to ask Jessika out.
  • As Jessika spends more time with Rey, she too is welcomed into the space family with open arms (rather furry ones) 
  • Basically, Leia is best Space Mom.
  • R2-D2 is thrilled to find that Rey speaks droid, and they spend a lot of time chatting. R2-D2 tells her all his stories about Luke and the older trio’s adventures, and Anakin, Obi-Wan, and Padme before them. 
  • The kids, BB-8 and R2-D2 develop a penchant for pranks. Particularly on Finn, because he is a precious trusting puppy and falls for them every time. 
  • Han gradually starts letting Rey pilot the Falcon more and more, as he is getting old and also finally patching his relationship with Leia.

Galavant Appreciation Week: Day 4: Favorite Relationship/Dynamic

Again, I’m a day late with this one and I seem to be stuck playing catch up, but better late than never right?  There are a lot of gifs and none of them are mine, I’m just using them to illustrate my point and because Gal and Izzy are super lovely to look at.

Galavant and Isabella: 

I’m sure it’ll come as a surprise to absolutely no one that my favourite dynamic/relationship on the show is the relationship between Galavant and Isabella. Isabella is “small and cute and ethnically hard to pin down” and Galavant has  "a face most chicks have a thing about"…basically these are two uber attractive people. 

Not only are these two undeniably gorgeous (I mean, duh and as Jean Hamm would say “Well, well, well. Hello there.”), but they also subscribe to one of my fave relationship tropes which is the love/hate relationship.


When Isabella and Galavant first meet each other, they can barely stand each other. Isabella finds Gal in a perpetual state of drunkenness in his hovel and she’d probably agree with her parents at this point in time if they called him a “waste of space”. She tells him of her woes and he says, “That’s terrible, just terrible. But you have a nice way about you I’m sure you’ll land on your feet. Nice meeting you, doors on the wall.” Isabella then begs him to save her people but Gal completely tunes her out and says:

 Isabella is utterly exasperated with him and Galavant finds her annoying and bossy and is this the beginning a beautiful relationship? I think so! 

Galavant eventually agrees to help Isabella reclaim her kingdom once he learns that King Richard is the one who invaded it. It is at this point that the audience discovers that Isabella is leading Galavant into a trap, but we still can’t help but love this precious cupcake because she is clearly wrestling with guilt about it…and this is before she even gets to know our hero. The angst is built into this relationship from the get go and it is absolutely delicious. 

Over the course of season one, Galavant and Isabella grow from being strangers to reluctant teammates to friends to a couple that is meant for each other. Isabella trains Galavant and teaches him how to be a knight again.

 She becomes our hero’s hero and “brings him back to himself”.

 Galavant becomes more considerate and caring around her. She’s always on his mind 

and he defends her when she isn’t there to defend herself (“Call her a mouth breather one more time!”). Because of his feelings for Isabella, Galavant learns that it’s not always about him, he’s not just “the hero that gets the raisins”…sometimes other people get the raisins too…like when Galavant stashes some trail mix aside and gives them to Isabella “raisins intact”. 

The relationship development between these two is so well done that you can go back and rewatch it and track it episode by episode. Galavant goes from “seeing [Isabella’s] mouth start moving and…needing a drink” in Joust Friends (1x02) to telling her that he doesn’t always listen when she speaks but he’s going to work on that in Comedy Gold (1x04) 

to telling Isabella that speaking to her is one of his favorite things to do in My Cousin Izzy (1x07). 

Likewise, Isabella learns to see Galavant in a completely different light. In the pilot she thinks of him as a bumbling buffoon and she tells him, “You’re no hero”, and in Joust Friends, she constantly questions him and his abilities

 until she gradually starts to trust him and becomes his biggest fan in It’s All in the Executions (1x08) when she tells him, 

Similarly, Galavant’s heroism is directly connected to his relationship with Isabella and as their relationship blooms so does Galavant’s heroism. He becomes the hero we always knew he was.


Galavant realizes that they only kind of hero he wants to be is her hero 

and he goes from saying “Nice meeting you, doors on the wall” and giving zero shits about her and people in general (mostly because Maddie seriously did a number on him) to putting her safety and the lives of his friends above everything else. Galavant promises Isabella that he’s going to save all of them in Dungeons and Dragon Lady (1x06),

then in My Cousin Izzy, Galavant says “I’m going to save all of them, especially her” and he races across the banquet hall to save Izzy from eating shellfish. 

Lastly, in “It’s all in the Executions”, Galavant flat out refuses to leave Isabella behind until Gareth promises to to take care of her.


We’ve come quite a long way since, “You have a nice way about you, I’m sure you’ll land on your feet”. 


Of course I’d be remiss if I failed to mention their heavenly duets and how well their voices blend together and how their love songs are so honest and refresh and true to them. 

And then there’s how attractive they are and how attractive they find each other and Isabella going “damn” when she sees Gal pour water on himself because she’s found “the abs the poets praise" 

and Gal saying: 

Oh and there’s also the way Gal calls Isabella’s mom, "Mummy!” and says:

 which is simultaneously hilarious and squeeworthy because this means that he envisions a future with Isabella even in his extremely drunken state.  I mean, don’t they just look perfect together here:

Also, I can’t forget the eyesex and how they had eyesex babies in that monastery and how Isabella was hoping beyond hope that Galavant would live and he could forgive her for betraying his trust and how she had to be the one to remind him about Madalena and how he was like, “Oh yeah right her. Sorry I forget about her because of the stunning, amazing woman in front of me” and basically it all adds up to complete perfection.

“[Galabella’s] the complete package and I, for one, am finally throwing my arms in the air and giving into it.”

Oh who am I kidding? I’m Galabella trash. They had me at “I’m sorry, what is that smell?” and I’ve grown to love them more with every episode and I AM BEYOND ECSTATIC THAT MY BABIES ARE COMING BACK AND WE’RE GOING TO GET MORE FOREVER KISSES 

AND MORE OF GAL TELLING IZZY THAT SHE’S WONDERFUL AND MORE OF IZZY TELLING GAL THAT SHE BELIEVES IN HIM. 

Can I have season 2 now please?

For amtrak12, “because I’m emotional about Ralph choosing to dress up like Walter.”

profounddestinyking  asked:

d and i for the writer ask thing?

D: What’s the most personal fanfic you’ve written?

Probably The Confusions of Two Nobodies, because it’s about growing up and discovering things about yourself and your friends and your parents and a lot of it is inspired by my current relationship with a friend of mine. A lot of the quotes and introspective moments are heavily inspired by some things I wish I could tell this guy lmao

I: How many fandoms have you written in?  Do you have a favorite?

Aside from this fandom/blog, I’ve written bandom (twenty one pilots, panic!, fall out boy, my chemical romance) and.. homestuck (I’m so sorry)

This has definitely been my most positive experience though, I feel a lot more chill and relaxed, like I have ten requests in my ask from a few weeks ago, but I’ve been busy with school and tcotn and no one’s made me feel bad about them, I’ll get them done with I get to them you know? I’m really happy I have such nice friends here :’)

Thanks for the ask!!

Hey, your secret Santa here! Currently in the processes of cooking up a Waige + Ralph family fic and would dearly love to hear what you want most for your gift 😊

Hiiii!

My favorite thing about Waige + Ralph is when you have one of them observing the other two and going like “wow, this is my family.”  I love things like in the Pilot and Charades where Paige is watching Walter and Ralph interact and getting emotional, or where Ralph says something to Walter (or vice versa) or does something and the other one is just looking at them like they have no idea how they got so lucky to have a father/son relationship like this.  That kind of stuff just really gets to me.

So Vanessa and Ethan are the blood and bones of Penny Dreadful, a show specifically about stories and archetypes. How specific is this fucking show? The season finale ends with all the players on a stage. IT’S UNREAL HOW MUCH THESE ASSHOLES LOVE THEIR STORIES,

What’s even more unreal to me is Ethan/Vanessa together. they have *gasp* an honest to god friendship. They hug a lot. They declare their loyalties A LOT. They even had the same fuckboy! It’s ENDLESS how much pd loves to use them as their visual and thematic springboards. NO SHIT, THEY ARE INTRODUCED WITH A BANG. AKA a smash cut from one character revealing scene to another. Face obscured, stark opposing colors. Neither is what they seem, for now you’ll only catch glimpses. The best monsters are the ones you can’t see but imagine for yourself.

This is my breakdown of the Ethan/Vanessa relationship because 2X07 is going to be insane and the moment it’s over I won’t know how to think properly.

A Breakdown of the Daddygate Myth

Okay, so, my anxiety about “daddygate” stems mostly from not knowing if the writers decide to ignore how they’ve been writing the scenes between Elizabeth and Red or how the actors have been playing it. “Oh,” one might say with a fond smile, “You ship this so much it might as well be an armada going to war. Your bias is showing.”

Well, yes. But more to the point, as I feel this clarifies, I would be so bored if the father/daughter thing happened. 

With that, I give you my “seriously it’s not like I’m watching Glee anymore I can put some faith in the writers that they won’t just say fuck it and make choices that don’t make a lot of sense given the established canon” possibly worryingly in-depth list on why the I can’t even see Elizabeth calling Red “daddy” in bed much less biologically. 

It won’t be very coherent brace yourself.

Yes, they have the right idea.
