this scene breaks me

“LEANING. involves WANTING… and ACCEPTING.”

We will find a way to put it all back together with whatever we have left at our disposal. But do not ask me to choose between a war and a wife. I do not think you’re going to like the answer.

the olicity q: [16/?]

also can I just say that I hope Nino shocks everyone by being a classically-trained musician?

he’s doing it because he’s been doing it for years and it makes his grandma proud?

like, give me a scene where Adrien is playing piano and Nino is playing his violin at the mansion and Gabriel is absolutely shocked?

give me a scene where Nino is breaking down his mixes, talking about chord progression, how the time signature changes at the drop, and how this particular mode for this piece works exceptionally well. Give me Nino and music theory.

give me a Nino who struggles because he doesn’t have a natural perfect pitch and screams because Adrien just has one without training, a Nino who won’t play violin with Adrien until his piano is tuned properly

a Nino who goes to classical music concerts on the weekends

a Nino who plays violin and synthesizes it and puts a beat to it and goes so hard when Adrien gets him an electric violin for Christmas because it makes making music ten times easier

give me Nino with a violin and a budding classical music career that he leaves in the dust for an exciting DJ career, a Nino who won’t part with his violin and takes it with him to gigs just in case he needs it

give me a gig where the venue loses their electricity, and Nino busts out his violin and goes soft and sweet for the crowd until the lights turn back on

JEMMA REDGRAVE AT THE TOP OF THE CAST LIST FOR APRIL 4TH 🙌🏻🎉😭

OH BLESSED DAY FOR ALL THE REDGRAVE TRASH PITS, WHO HATH BEEN THIRSTY THESE MANY WEEKS!

{psst; I know it’s in order of- but I’m still hoping it means she gets significant screen time too}

Can we talk about how this is the second time Bellamy has quietly pleaded with Clarke to come inside?

With that epic Graveltone™ which Bob uses when Bellamy is trying to dissuade Clarke from doing something self-destructive and sacrificial (see also: “you’re out of your mind if you think I’m letting you do this alone”)?

Only this time, the gate they’re standing at is metaphorical and in the future – a gate that neither of them want to be standing at.

But this time, he isn’t taking no for an answer. This time Bellamy Blake is not letting her walk away into nothingness. Last time he thought it was what she needed, now he knows it’s not. This time, he has faced the fact that he needs her and he cannot come to terms with his own name on that list unless hers is right beside it.  What’s more – and this is the clincher – he’s got an honest to god reason to fight for his own survival because now he’s convinced that Clarke believes in him and maybe, just maybe, that means he can look himself in the mirror again.

And you know what else? This time she doesn’t fight him. She knows, now, that she doesn’t have to bear any of this alone. And what is more, when he writes her name down, he’s letting her know that she, Clarke Griffin, deserves to be on the list. Not just for him (and yes for him because that is also what he’s finally telling her) but for everyone, all the people she couldn’t bear to face when she walked away last time. Because even though she thought she could leave because they had you,  ultimately that wasn’t enough. Not for Bellamy. Not for her people.  She matters to everyone and she only believes it because Bellamy believes it and finally, finally she’s allowing her faith in his judgement to override all her self-doubt. 

Bellamy and Clarke’s belief in each other is life-affirming, folks.  They finally understand what they mean to each other and that’s what validation looks like.
