this scene teared me up

You remember this? My dad and I used to build model airplanes. And this, this was my absolute favorite. Tenth birthday. This is a Nieuport 28. It’s the same plane Quentin Roosevelt flew in World War I. When you were about two years old, you got your hands on this, and you broke off one of the wings. I spent about an hour with a hot glue gun trying to fix it. It ended up in about 20 pieces instead of 2. Quentin, sometimes trying to fix something only makes it worse.

“You don’t know who I am?”

Alpha-5 clapping with Billy when he’s happy is my world OK? That scene made me tear up so much. 

He’s clapping with him because he’s happy for him. Alpha-5 doesn’t ask why he claps when he’s happy or excited, he just claps with him because he’s happy for him. He’s supportive and happy for his progress and that means the world to me because it’s the first portrayal I’ve seen of a character on the spectrum stimming and being supported by their friends. Even going as far as to stim with him. 

This is the kind of respectful portrayal I live for.

So I reread Son of Batman today... And the baby Goliath scene never ceases to make me tear up. But then something occurred to me, why didn't Damian strike down Goliath as he killed his family? All his other targets and enemies have always fought back, no matter how feeble. Damian can't bring himself to kill someone that isn't hurting him back.

I love the whole “R:SOB” comic especially that issue because it shows that Damian always had some good in him, even before the Batfamliy “Tamed” him (I hate when people refer to it as that)

The way I see it that scene was the straw that broke the camel’s back, Damian has been in a year long journey doing all kind of horrible stuff for TLOS and the Goliath ordeal was the last one and it was just then that it hit him that there was absolutely no reason whatsoever beside “that’s was what I have been told to do” and I guess the realization was too much for him and he just fell and started crying. 

Also not everyone caught the parallels:

It seems to like Damian was projecting himself into Goliath, the things he’s saying here to Goliath seems like things he has most likely heard while growing up with the league so in his mind Goliath is supposed to fight back and continue this killing cycle but of course Goliath just:

Instead he showed him that sometimes even an animal could have more empathy than some humans and you can see in the last panel the mix of regret,shame,guilt and unsureness was too much for Damian that he just couldn’t go through with killing him.

Sherlock: Your romantic inclinations are not a flaw to be corrected, they’re a trait to be accepted. I know you, Watson. I know you’ll never be happy within the confines of a quote-unquote “traditional relationship.”  And I said what I said because it pains me to see you try to fit into one simply because it is the default mode of polite society.

Joan: Well, there’s no reason to feel pain, because I’m happy with Andrew.

Sherlock: But would you be happier without him? Alternatively, with him as an occasional sex partner and confidante. Or, with him when he’s in the States, and free to pursue other interests when he’s not. There are any number of possible arrangements. All you need to do is find one which is true to your nature.

- Elementary, 3x7

This scene is so wonderful.

First of all, we have Sherlock endorsing open relationships and potentially polyamory. And please note the use of the word “arrangement” - he is not suggesting Joan should cheat on Andrew. He’s talking about disregarding convention and tradition to find the ideal approach, not just for Joan but for all parties involved. And he’s not saying any particular way is the right one, he is offering up suggestions and encouraging experimentation to find what works best for them.

And this could be applied to any kind of relationship, regardless of sexuality or romantic orientation. Speaking as an aromantic asexual who’d still like to have a significant other in some form, I know how difficult it can be to have a relationship if you are not, as Sherlock says, true to your nature, or if you’re worrying too much about conforming to the rules of a traditional relationship.

When Sherlock says “romantic inclinations”, it could mean just about anything. And as long as the people involved are informed and consenting, you should feel free to do whatever makes you and your loved ones happy, regardless of what society thinks of it - including not being in a relationship at all. Because how you feel is not a problem, it is a part of what makes you who you are.

Your romantic inclinations are not a flaw to be corrected, they’re a trait to be accepted.

HELP

OK BUT CAN WE TALK ABOUT THAT SCENE WHERE KILLER FROST IS HELPING CISCO AND JULIAN

AND THEN CISCO STARTS TALKING ABOUT THE GOOD TIMES WHERE CAITLYN, RONNIE AND HIM WERE WORKING ON THE PARTICLE ACCELERATOR AND HE KIND OF TRAILS OFF AND THEN KILLER FROST FINISHES FOR HIM BY SAYING, “CHARGE ON”

FOR A MOMENT SHE WAS BACK. IT WAS JUST LIKE THE OLD TIMES AND CAITLIN AND CISCO WERE CRACKING JOKES IN THE LAB

GUYS THAT SCENE MADE ME TEAR UP BC WHILE KILLER FROST IS A GREAT ANTAGONIST, I ALSO MISS CAITLIN ON THE TEAM AND THAT SCENE GIVES US HOPE THAT CAITLIN SNOW MIGHT STILL BE THERE

like here’s all the things i did honestly like from that episode (which just kinda makes me dislike it more):

  • really cute connie and steven interactions
  • connie freaking out and then taking a deep breath (oddly enough i did not recognize that it was a callback to mindful education and just appreciated seeing a character visually show how to react to paranoia)
  • the fact that steven is so mixed on his views with his mom that he couldn’t eat his food while her picture stares down at him
  • that rain quickly shifting from calm to hectic and violent
  • steven spending time with his mom
  • him being self reflective and emotional over feeling like he’s with her
  • the selfie scene (a lot of emotional scenes in su dont really get to me but that scene really just made me tear up. especially that his line afterwards was “you’re just all in my head”)
  • the rain symbolism i liked. i especially liked how when the rain hit his eye it looked like he was crying.

I watched the first episode of Tangled Before Ever After and oh my gosh it was so good!! I was kind of nervous that it was going to ruin Tangled for me, but it was so in character, the plot was really good, the music was amazing, and the visuals were gorgeous! Several scenes made me tear up, and I kept having to pause it to squeal and rewind to watch it again. 

I’m so excited about this series and getting to see Rapunzel and Eugene more, learning more about her parents, and getting to meet more characters like Cassandra and Lady Cain! I’m really looking forward to seeing more!

I recently realized you can easily interpret Nano's desire to be seen as a normal girl as a trans metaphor and it suddenly made sense why I related to her so much before I even realized I was trans. I love Nano so much. I need to rewatch Nichijou now that I realized this.

yes!! absolutely!! ive always been super down w/ that interpretation (and this scene always makes me tear up).


i love this series, and i love nano, she’s always been one of my favourite anime characters ever, since the first time i watched the show.

First Impressions -- Act Two

I have far too many notes, and I need to unload my brain when I get home to my script, but just a few observations, several of them controversial.

Samuel may already be my favourite Scorpius. He teared up in the library scene and absolutely destroyed me. He’s so different to either James or Anthony, and I love it. I need to work on trying to describe his voice, but it’s nothing close to what we’ve heard before.

Theo showed glimpses, particularly in the hospital wing scene and in the library scene, of what he’ll be capable of when he relaxes. I’m optimistic. He’s already warming up.

Jamie made a couple of choices that I actually really preferred to Jamie P’s. I really like him. He’s not shouty or angry or explosive, but he’s great. And he clearly loves his son.

James was so commanding at the start of the duel scene. It was amazing. Also my favourite tiny detail of the night was that when the boys come back from the first task, when everyone walks off, Samuel waited and walked next to James. Scorpius loves his dad so much.

Theo and Samuel just put their arms round each other at unnecessary moments. Like when they’re running off after the Expelliarmus scene.

I loved how Emma said ‘saved by the door’. With Poppy it always felt like she was saying she was saved from the conversation, but with Emma it was definitely a 'we’ll talk about this later’ threat to Harry.

Rakie and Thomas’s scene on the staircases in the second timeline was my favourite Romione moment ever. Wow.

April might actually be a better Myrtle than Annabel. I said it. And I’m sticking with it. She was absolutely mind blowing.

The cast managed to destroy the set already. They drove both staircases into the pillars in the front wings and there was a loud bang and things fell off. Four days of tech rehearsals.

The pacing of this cast is far far far slower than the old cast. They finished ten minutes late and I missed my train because of it. But they were also inconsistent cause they sped up considerably towards the end. We walked past Sonia and Jack discussing notes at the end, and they were saying exactly the same as us. We’ve seen this play too many times…

Mackley and Josh still managed to hug in the first task scene, and Mackley promised Fleur a Hufflepuff hug. He’s a Hufflepuff now omg! The originals have been whipping the new cast into a frenzy cause the first task scene was wild. Also, instead of 'go go crazy Krum’ we now have 'I love Krum, you love Krum, Krum’s the one for everyone’.

This is a skeleton of the stuff I’ve been thinking about. This recap is going to be wild. I thought I was going off writing recaps but actually I just had nothing left to say about the old cast. I have about a billion things to see in regards to this one, and I fully intend to do so. Watch this space.
