My overanalyzing of Just Friends and Love Sentence
Okay so I have spent a lot a lot a lot of time listening to the two Love Sentence songs in Star VS and thinking about the meanings for both of them. I need to consolidate these thoughts so I’m going to spout them here.
First of all, I initially thought how weird it is that Starco’s romantic relationship was developed through a platonic song and Tom and Marco had a very clear love ballad to further their friendship. But then I listened to the two songs nonstop and begin picking them apart.
It’s hard to not see Just Friends as a happy song because of the visuals we get with it. Smiling, dancing, lip syncing (I’ll get to that later) but really it’s a song of lost love. So let me explain my analysis. (I’ll be screenshotting the parts we see Star and Marco interacting so I’ll flip between the song’s two scenes)
It was no secret, the way that we feel. A love that’s so pure, a love that’s so real.
Now I’m going to take this as a description of platonic love, friendship love, obvious love that is not a secret and is “pure.” Aka, what Star and Marco have pretty much from episode one. They’re best friends, they say so all the time. They alternate lip-syncing these lines so I’ll take them as a shared message, especially with the “we.”
You showed me your world, and it felt like a sign.
Marco is Star’s guide, he’s the one who’s been the Aladdin to her Jasmine and has shown her the really great place that is Earth. Star lip-syncs this line in the shot we see so I’m taking it from her perspective. Meaning the “it felt like a sign” is what I’ll take to her thinking his actions were a sign of deeper feelings, and maybe they’ll get together someday, even if she thinks this subconsciously.
But you acted too slow and you ran out of tiiiiiiiime.
This is mouthed by Marco, so I’m taking it as him saying she moved forward on her romantic feelings too slowly, because he’s with Jackie now and he’s happy with Jackie.
And now we’ll be… just friends. (repeated a few times)
Sung together again, because that’s what it’s ended up as. They’re just friends.
The next part gets a little tricky from a perspective point because they rotate lines really fast it’s almost like a group sentiment again. Also the second half of the song is just like super vague.
I didn’t mean to hurt you
I’m going to take this as a reference to pretty much every time Star has accidentally got Marco in trouble, but specifically towards the time she spied on him and Jackie and her magic broke Jackie’s skateboard and sent them falling. Pretty much though, Star gets Marco into a lot of hurtful situations and this is probably an apology for just being there, as he’d be safer without her around.
You didn’t have a clue
If this is coming from Marco, it could be about her not knowing her own crush but is more likely about her ignorance towards what’s happening and how often all those incidents were just that, accidental.
So you went out and got busy, and found somebody new
Clearly, this is a reference to Marco and Jackie again. He has someone new now.
Then it repeats the just friends lines, and goes back into the second verse, making them same point that now they’ll be only friends. Then Star tells Marco to go be with Jackie and Too Little Too Late starts playing as she walks out. Star even blows up the sign on the line Marco sang during the duet with Tom. Too Little Too Late is very straightforward though.
We spiraled high on a gust of love, and I knew right from the start, nothing could tear us apart.
‘Til the day you broke my heart (and now it’s… too little, too late. That half of the line isn’t sung during Just Friends though.)
For Star, it’s just what it is. They’re just friends now and no matter what she does for Marco he’ll only see her as “the best friend a guy could ever have.” It’s all just too little, too late.
For the record, the first one was Jamie Benn. I couldn’t really screen shot it cause it was already difficult putting this in. Anyway, this was hockey impressions with my best friend Alexa. I did the people I knew. This was a while back though and I posted it late because I was procrastinating.
The more I watch Sherlock, and the more I think about the characters and their interactions, the more I become CONVINCED that Sherlock and Molly slept together. Specifically between 3x02 and 3x03.
I’m not saying that as a fanboy or a shipper or whatever. I legitimately think they’re interactions are written to give that impression.
Why Molly and Tom suddenly split, why Molly and Sherlock’s attitudes towards each other change after 3x02, the comment about Sherlock liking her bed, why Molly suddenly features prominently in Sherlock’s mind palace, his sudden guilt over his treatment of her, the slap, the seemingly random sexual joke he makes towards her, and of course the I love you scene.
Seriously, re-watch 3x03 - 4x03 with this idea in mind. Everything just clicks.
The film’s post-credit scene saw Doctor Strange meet with Thor
who was on the hunt for his brother, and the magical hero was quick to
take a few shots at the devious Frost Giant. Later this year, fans will
likely get to see how Doctor Strange does with Loki when Thor: Ragnarok makes its way to theaters, but don’t expect the latter to be impressed by Strange’s gifts.
According to Tom Hiddleston, Loki will be rather apathetic towards Doctor Strange’s mystical powers.
Recently, the actor sat down for an interview with IGN where
he was asked about Loki’s reaction to characters like Doctor Strange.
In the Marvel Cinematic Universe, much of what has kept Loki unique is
his magical gifts, so the entrance of beings like Strange and even Hela
could be a threat to Loki. However, Hiddleston doesn’t seem to think
that’s the case.
“I think he probably dismisses Strange,” Hiddleston said about Loki.
“Yes, his sorcery is very impressive, but Loki’s been doing that for
century so who cares? But Hela is a different beast and full of
surprises. [She] actually might have been someone with whom he actually
got along, but the circumstances have changed.”
As for what those circumstances are, fans will have to wait and see.
So far, it looks like Hela will force Loki to work alongside his brother
out of self-interest and desire to stay alive. Hiddleston has hinted
Hela would be one of the main factors which reunited the brothers in Thor: Ragnarok.
“At the beginning of Ragnarok, Thor has a lot of questions,
and Loki - true to form - is not that forthcoming with many answers. But
hammers are involved and the stakes are raised,” Hiddleston told IGN.
“Cate Blanchett is playing the goddess of death who brings
destruction in her wake. It’s the kind of destruction that both Thor and
Loki have never seen, on a scale of terror they’ve never ever seen
before. So, they fall back on their brotherhood fractured though it is
to see what they can do to stop her.
