Am I the only one who noticed that in the last episode, when Chris and Eva were talking about food and how Eva didn’t like tomatoes, he said that she eats ketchup all the time. That means they have had a breakfast/lunch/dinner together (and not just one time ), since he knows that. I wonder what else have they done together besides hooking up. Do they binge watch shows together? Sing in the car? Randomly dance around the kitchen? Domestic Mohnstad is what we deserved to see.
I realy love the "I'm not single" comment just thrown in there by Chris! 😆
That interview was ripe with opportunities to directly mention the PA and he did not. Chris interviews make me decidedly less anxious that Darren interviews, because Chris’ team does not try to repeatedly set him up and it is clear he has full control, even when relaying the PR narrative (and he did last night, he emphasized Peru was his birthday trip).
I love how he tossed that it there. “No, I am not single.” With no further definition or explanation.
So my only question, did he mean “not single” more in a casual sense as in, I have a boyfriend/partner or in the legal sense and how he would file his taxes, as in I have a husband? I think we all know what I believe;)
She’s on a long journey back to her roots; he has no intention of returning. “Home” is both the departure and the destination, but neither Riley nor Lucas are quite sure they know what it means, or if they know where it actually is. But when fate brings them together on the open road, both of them come to realize that perhaps the destination doesn’t matter so much–and that maybe home isn’t something, but someone.

P R O L O G U E
As Riley loads the last box into the back of her hatchback and stares at her entire life packed up before her, she has to wonder to herself if she really is insane.
She could’ve just had her stuff shipped. She could’ve just taken a direct flight back to New York, had her stuff delivered within the next week, and made the whole journey quite sweet and simple. No hassle, no stress, from one coast to the other in record time.
All of this in retrospect. She could’ve. But she didn’t.
She slams the back of the car shut, exhaling a deep sigh and hopping back onto the curb.
Jade waits by the hood, twisting her fingers together nervously and looking at the hunk of junk apprehensively. Her fidgeting drifts to the end of her braid hanging off her shoulder, twirling it. “Are you sure you want to do this, Riles? Cross-country is a long trip to take all by yourself.”
Standing in front of her for what may be the final time, Riley suddenly realizes how great of a roommate Jade Beamon actually was. She wasn’t particularly engaging or outgoing, nothing extraordinary, but then, in her deepest heart of hearts Riley knows she isn’t either. But she was genuine, and kind, and didn’t bring friends over at late hours or anything like the stunts her past roommates pulled. It’s a shame she only got to room with her for senior year—for all intents and purposes, Jade’s probably the closest thing she has to a true friend from her four years at UC Riverside.
And it’s just now as she’s facing her, about to take off on her own, that she realizes maybe she’ll really miss her.
will we ever get a fic with matt and ulaz interacting? do you have any thoughts on what their dynamic would be like?
I do have one here, technically, though it’s pretty short.
For the most part, I do think Matt would be wary of Ulaz. Shiro might be golden-hearted enough to forgive the guy, but Matt remembers every injustice and injury all too well. Okay, sure, there are probably nice Galra, and maybe he even knows some, but that doesn’t mean he’s going to take the guy who worked with the druids at his word.
But Matt isn’t also an ‘hey I distrust you and I’m keeping an eye on you’ In-You-Face kind of person. So instead he’s just kind of… aggressively a shit to Ulaz. Flip and snarky with a darker edge than most everyone gets. Fails to pass on messagse, tries to snag Shiro for more one-on-one time.
Ulaz gets it. Seriously, he does. Even if he did what he did for a good cause, he still hurt people, and it’s understandable - downright sane - for most people not to trust him at first. But it sucks anyway. For the most part, he lets Shiro make the first moves, deciding when Matt has been too far and deciding his own schedule, and otherwise avoiding Matt. Which suits Matt fine.
Eventually Matt does cool down, and he sees Ulaz patching Shiro up, sees him nuzzle Shiro’s jaw until he laughs, sees Shiro snuggled against his side and-
Dammit, Shiro’s happy. And maybe Matt has been a little jealous. Because last time he had Shiro with him, he had Shiro’s attention basically whenever, assuming they were both awake. There really wasn’t anyone else except Sam that Matt had to share him with.
No matter how you want to slice it, Matt loves Shiro - friend or otherwise. So yeah, it’s an adjustment to coming back and finding Shiro has a whole world outside of him. Pidge too. Matt’s not always dealing with it perfectly.
So after that, Matt makes an effort to reach out. And honestly, the pair of them are Mythbusters at heart - they’re experimental and curious and a little impulsive. Sometimes the consequences of that come down hard on their heads, but they still want to learn.
Hello. Sorry if such a question already was.What do you think the gesture of Magnus means when he turned away from Alec?
Honestly, I have been thinking about that ever since I first saw it.
I mean we know at this point that Harry improvised it (which actually was my first guess tbh) but I think it perfectly shows 2 things: a) Magnus being all #nailedit when it comes to acting all professional like….wow look at me being all professional and not jumping my boyfriend lol but b) I also feel like it is a gesture that shows something like… he protected and took care of his heart? I mean we can’t forget that he is still hurting so bad and the telephone call earlier in the day with Alec didn’t really help to establish his faith in himself. I think he really needs Alec to tell him that he will still by his side, always, ugly side or not. Azazel and that body swap destroyed so much of Magnus being secure and all and he tries to act like it all is okay, hence doing and acting like Alec wished and all, but on the inside there is this big black hole and he needs to let down his walls, show Alec is past, to finally heal and move on. Because one way or another, he can’t go on like this because this will destroy him sooner or later.
Or maybe I am just reading too much into it. Sigh.
dom thinks he is so subtle with his acting choices, that smile and how jace lightens up at the mention of maia... he is not subtle. do you think that dom decided to do that on his own, i doubt the director told dom he had to smile in that scene?
i think it was all dom’s work tbh, it’s the SAME EXACT SMILE every single time. different episodes, different directors meaning it’s dom just going with what he wants to do. and it’s hilarious because homeboy is not doing the same in those cl*ce scenes. dom is a true ride of die, i already know that if we ever get scenes w/ jace and maia in the future, he’s gonna play that shit romantically even if jace is with clarissa. LOVE HIM
For the tf ask meme... TFA Sentinel Prime? :'D I am not fond of him but I would like to know what you think
Oh boy! XD Truthfully? I don’t really mind him all that much. Yeah, he’s a jerk. We all know he’s a jerk. But I’ve spent enough time around difficult people to the point where someone’s bone-headed, broken filtered, garbage wordage doesn’t really faze me. (Plus I think that loosing Elita had a lot to do with it which give me too many feels)
looks:somewhat attractive | eh | not really my type | pretty | handsome | beautiful | stud | gorgeous | SWEET LORD MERCY
I mean, that chin is ridiculous, but he aint heinous or anything
can you relate to this character on a personal level?:no | not really | somewhat | yes | they are me
If I ever start acting like that, assume I’ve been possessed by Unicron or something. :P
would you date/be friends with this character in real life if they were real?: total bros | friends | best friends | date | become their steady boyfriend/ girlfriend | neither | i don’t know
At best we’d be civil acquaintances, but I forgot about how much he hates humans, so probably not even that…
2: otp – This is hard for me. I shipped her and Silver right up until the last 15 minutes of the finale. LOL! Then I felt like she deserved better. I mean, I understand Silver’s logic behind what he did but, from her POV, it was a massive betrayal and showed a lack of respect and acceptance for who she was on his part. While they stay together, their relationship will never be what it once was. His betrayal will always linger between them.
3: brotp – Madi and Flint, all the way.
4: notp – I don’t really have a NOTP for her.
5: first headcanon that pops into my head – According to “Treasure Island”, we know she and Silver eventually end up owning a tavern but Madi is so much more badass than that. So my headcanon is that she establishes her own little Maroon Island and funds it from the tavern’s profits, acting as her father once did for her and her mother. It won’t be the same island because the treaty her mother signed said they would not take in any more runaway slaves. But we know Madi told Rogers to stuff that suggestion as far as it would go. So she establishes a new place, putting someone she trusts in charge of it. She aids escaped slaves to the island and funnels them supplies.
6: one way in which I relate to this character – I try to always stand up for what I believe is right.
7: thing that gives me second hand embarrassment about this character – Nothing, really. She’s pretty awesome.
8: cinnamon roll or problematic fave? – Cinnamon Roll.
You know what's tragic? I had a crush on Nico for FOUR YEARS before I found out he was gay. Sure, I was pretty young but I WROTE FANFIC ABOUT US ((oml the cringe.)) I liked him for THE LONGEST TIME AND THEN B A M "sorry hun he's gay af and if u ship him with anyone but Will we'll all hate you". wELL OKAY
LMAOOOO. I mean, it’s all up to the person, but turning a gay canon character straight for the sake of your oc dating him is kinda shitty
We do it here because it’s what the people want ! And it’s only an imagine so it isn’t bad !!
Yes wish dwight not so skilled. It would be great twist if he died, would love demelza to be the one true person in this to mean what she really says and be true to herself,we all need at least one person we can gun for,it would be marvelous if the last moment she sees sense for herself more then for ross, i just so want her to be better then ross with adultery,fans would love it of her as well, want the queen to rule,also the demelza so far would not risk jeremy and clowance lives being hurt
Well we know Hugh lives and apparently has all his physical capabilities when he finally meets Demelza. But that is a cross we have to bear.
It will be interesting to see this played out as I read the passages last night and it’s really a sad story. I am hoping for stellar acting by A&E and looking forward to how Josh interprets Hugh-Player or Poet? Or both? And Ross’s reaction will be interesting as he will now be on the receiving end of this kind of hurt.
Litten on Sun, cause I’m absolute furry trash. I honestly hadn’t made up my mind until Incineroar leaked - but as soon as he did, I looked at him and quite shamefully whispered “… yes.”
I named mine Keli’l - male, hasty natured, likes to run.
For Moon, I replaced my starter with… Comfey. Because I love Comfey. I didn’t get a chance to use it during my Sun playthrough because I was already using two fairy-types. And I don’t think a lot of people love Comfey.
Kui - male, bold natured, capable of taking hits.
I don’t know what I’m gonna do for the Ultras yet!
That this croc boi is def a pansexual who only goes for those he deems beautiful enough. Because we all know Zarbon is that shallow. He’s also a crazy fucker who you know behind that pretty face is one mean monster.
How do I escape my love for Tom Holland?? I can't sleep anymore
You do not, instead you let the love embrace you and rock you gently to sleep.
Serious talk though, I know what you mean. First time I saw him, I was like “look at this cutie pattotie, ain’t he adorable!” And now I’m just like “YOU INSULT TOM, YOU INSULT ME! FIGHT ME BITCH,” so, don’t worry, we’re all in this same boat together, slowly sinking into the sea, never to be seen again, never to be saved.
On The Adventure Zone Graphic Novel, Blue Taako, and Representation
Yesterday, we revealed some pages for our graphic novel adaptation of the first Adventure Zone arc, and received some criticism of the direction we went with for Taako’s coloring. This artwork reveal came some months after the first reveal of some of our characters, for which we also received criticism of our three leads, all of whom were white in these initial designs. Us and the graphic novel team realized that, yes, that is extremely bad, went back to the drawing board, and had several long discussions about how to best rectify this situation, resulting in the artwork revealed yesterday.
More or less all of the criticism we’ve received centers on Taako, whose skin is a pale blue color in these designs. What we’ve heard most is disappointment that Taako is not realized in these pages as a person of color — or, to be more specific, a Latinx or explicitly Mexican character. There was concern we had failed to follow through on an opportunity to get better representation for Latinx listeners, instead opting to take a safe route, and make Taako a fantasy color without any kind of real-world connection. Much of the criticism also focuses on how that color (or, to be more specific, green skin) has anti-semitic connotations.
This conversation was happening in certain corners of our fandom long before the graphic novel art reveal took place yesterday. We’ve heard criticism from some folks over our policy of not having canonical visual representations of any of our characters — a policy that has resulted in a genuinely humbling ocean of fan art, but also some instances of in-fighting between members of the community who take umbrage with one another’s disparate interpretations of these characters. Another criticism of that policy is that it inherently does not foster good representation, and in fact represents a noncommittal way of handling racial representation on this show.
Here’s the truth of the matter: I think all of this comes from this underlying friction between where The Adventure Zone and us, its creators, were when we started doing the podcast, and where we, the show, and you, the community, are at now.
I saw when you did Carpool Karaoke with Harry when you swapped clothes. And you're right, he REALLY pulls stuff of.
There's nothing that man can't wear. It's so annoying.
When he wins like style awards, fashion awards, and they're all like 'He just looks incredible!' and essentially what he's wearing is a T-shirt and jeans. What they're awarding is his bone structure.
Yeah. It's just that inner thing which is unquantifiable. Ironically, the very thing he has is the X factor.
I hope he gets jowls. And crows feet.
Noooo, cause if he gets crows feet he'd pull them off like Jagger, you know what I mean?
I know that many of you are losing hope, but our battle is not over yet. I understand some days is hard to still have hope, but so far we have achieved so much.
Yesterday was supposed to be all about OITNB and instead the world was still talking about us, about Sense8 and about our movement. Not to mention that we dropped their stocks by 6% instead of them going up.
Netflix is so afraid that at this point they are trying to shut us down any way possible. You know what that means, right? It means they realised that WE hold the power.
They realised also that we are aware of having this power. CEO Reed Hastings even had to change his email recently because he has been bombarded with complaints. Keep Emailing and keep complaining BUT ESPECIALLY DEMAND FOR SENSE8′S RIGHTS TO BE RELEASED TO ITS WRITERS AND CREATORS.
This may be our only chance to SAVE Sense8.
So grab a snack and a drink, blast What’s Going On:
