we do know how to make romance

Difference between Good Comic Book Show and CW
  • CW Arrow: So we have this normal character named Laurel Lance who wants to be a superhero....HOW ABOUT WE FRIDGE HER FOR DRAMA! THAT's BOUND TO BE GOOD!
  • Agents of SHIELD: So we have this female character who wants to be a superhero. How about we create glorious story arc lasting multiple seasons where she can realize her full potential and be awesome?
  • CW Supergirl: Aww our MC just broke up with her love interest, let's throw a new straight white boy at her and spend whole season focusing on how great he is while he degrades her and insults her!
  • Agents of SHIELD: Aww our MC just lost her love interest? How about we spend this season on introspection and exploring her emotional state and what makes her into the hero she is, as we have a story of her overcoming her demons and being badass enough to turn any viewer gay from just seeing her.
  • CW Supergirl: *Makes some vague remarks against Immigration policy*
  • AOS: *Literally Creates a WHOLE STORY ARC THAT RIFFS AGAINST TANGERINE ADMINISTRATION, while referencing multiple real world things like "nevertheless she persisted" and furniture shopping*
  • CW: HALP PEOPL BULLY US CLAIMING OUR NEW ROMANCE IS TOXIC HOW DO WE FIX THIS AND MAKE THEM LIKE THE PAIRING?
  • Agents Of SHIELD: Would not know. We literally launched the toxic love interest off into space with a bomb not even once having made excuses for him. *shrug*

this is why i fell in love with the show

not ships or romance or the comedy but the sheer heart of it, of experiencing loss and anger and not knowing how to go on but doing it anyway, of found families taking care of each other and inspiring each other and keeping each other safe from their own biggest threats: themselves. Reminding each other that yes it’s hard and it hurts but we will be here no matter what, of stronger together

i miss this show i miss this kara i miss seeing j’onn actually be on my screen having an impact i did not sign up for season 2 goddammit make kara the protagonist again

Why Victor and Yuri don’t need to be “100% canon”

As I watched the last episode of Yuri!!! On Ice I found myself somehow desperately wanting for Victor and Yuri to kiss again. It was almost like a rabid need (I actually recorded my reaction so there’s evidence). The show plays with this on purpose (particularly in the final episode), when it looks like they are going to kiss, but it ends up as a hug or something else.

If you want to put it plainly, Victor and Yuri — despite everything that happened — never get to that “100% canon” status. Some hearts will be broken. Some people will debate that it was just all queer baiting in the end.

But then I realized. We, as a culture in general, are obsessed with confirmation of relationships. Why does something need to be “100% canon?” We have grown into the bad habit to not believe a couple is really a couple unless they say “I love you” to each other (or have sex), as if those are the only words (or actions) that count when you love someone.

Media is over-saturated with “I love you’s,” and we have been conditioned to believe that this is the only way to confirm a romantic relationship.

But we don’t. We don’t need Victor and Yuri to say the words, “I love you.” We know they do. 

They say it every single episode.

We see it in how their hearts break.

In the stand-alone wordless frames that say everything without speaking a word.

Their relationship shows every single moment in a traditional romance, without actually saying it verbatim.

First kiss.

Sleeping together.

Natural PDAs.

Getting engaged.

Yuri!!! On Ice doesn’t need Victor and Yuri to say “I love you.” We know.

Anyone can say the words “I love you.” Say it so much that they become habitual and empty. We grow into the belief that just saying the words makes everything perfect when it sometimes doesn’t. 

More media should follow Yuri!!! On Ice’s example. To create a beautiful, meaningful, and heartfelt relationship without the need of the words “I love you.” Because in the end, love is expressed in the things we do, not the things we say.

Victor and Yuri love each other and no matter how you want to label it, it’s a fact no one can deny.

Jon and Dany's relationship Explaination

From reddit: https://www.reddit.com/r/freefolk/comments/6vpsrm/jon_and_dany_relationship_explanation/

u/solomon585858 Aug 24, 2017, 2:49 AM
I found this comment on YouTube and thought it would’ve been a waste not to post it here:

I’ve seen alot of comments lately that Jon and Danys romantic relationship is rushed, forced and/or pure fanfiction. I think these statements are wrong and that their relationship is actually one of the better, if not the best written and developed romantic relationship in the series. I’m gonna break down why I think so - beware, long f*cking post ahead:

So, how when exactly does Dany and Jon start having feelings for eachother and why? First off, it’s worth noting that time passes off-screen as well. Sansa tells us that Jon as been gone “for weeks”. We don’t know exactly how many, it could be 3, or 7. Point is that the show leaves plenty of time for Dany and Jon to actually develop feeling for each other, it’s nothing that happens over the course of 2 days. If you’re around someone you like for several weeks, chances are that you will start having romantic feelings for said person.

It’s also worth noting that both of these characters repress their feelings and do their best to hide it from the other. Jon is better at repressing his emotions because of his personality. He has a strong sense of duty and purpose, and probably the highest willpower in Westeros, and in his mind, the nr.1 goal is to defeat the Night King. Unlike Robb, Jon won’t let love distract him. This is shown in the series as well, because we know for a fact that Dany and Jon love each other by the end of episode 5, and Dany has already cracked down and done two attempts (albeit half-heartedly) to show Jon her feelings for him by this point. He doesn’t reciprocate her advances though (he still manages to repress his feelings), which she interprets that he doesn’t love her. I actually believe that Dany was sincere when she said that “Jon Snow doesn’t love me” to Tyrion in episode 6, she truly believed that he didn’t at that point.

So how did it all progress? We start in episode 3 with their first meeting. It doesn’t start well, and it shouldn’t. Dany does her usual “Submit to me, I’m the rightful Queen”-speech wich usually makes people either threaten or submit to her. Jon does neither, which she finds intriguing. She doesn’t like him at this point, but she doesn’t dislike him either. Jon on the other hand, shows some seriously bad diplomatic skills, which Tyrion points out later in the episode, but he’s never rude or disrespects her, even when he asks if he’s her prisoner now. By this point, both know that the other have been trough various stages of hell before they came here.

In the next scene, they talk alone. Unsurprisingly, they find it easier to talk to eachother when there’s not a room full of people watching them. There’s some more disagreements, but Dany takes the first step at improving their relationship with the Dragonglass, and Jon can barely hide his surprise. Dany get’s curious about Jons comment regarding him not liking what he’s good at (which is a trowback to what Ser Barristan Selmy told Dany about her brother Rhaegar earlier: He was good at killing, but he never liked it) and throws a curious glance at Jons back when he leaves. End of episode 3 - They are friendly to eachother, and both are curious about the other. Not really any romance worth mentioning going on as of yet.

In episode 4 their relationship improves further. Dany trusts Jon enough at this point to leave her guards behind, and why shouldn’t she? He’s never been hostile to her. In the cave Dany’s resolve weakens somewhat when she see’s the paintings. She still wants Jon to submit, but now she’s trying to reason with him instead of simply demanding that he submits. Jon brings up why he can’t bend the knee for the first time, instead of just saying that he won’t. We also get to see Jon showing some feelings for Dany at the first time during this scene, when he eyes her constantly every time she looks away or looks at the wallpaintings. Davos brings this up later in the episode, and Jon doesn’t deflect but freely admits that he is eyeing her out. He also states that there’s no time for that kind of relationship with Dany.

After the cave-scene Dany looses her temper with Tyrion when he brings the bad news. It’s debatable if she’s being unfair to Tyrion, but he is her hand and it was his plans that went to hell. Surprisingly, Dany turns to Jon for advice, and he not only gives her good advice, he also manages to soothe her firey temper. Jons ice soothes Danys fire. Quite beautiful in a way. End of episode 4 - Relationship improves. They are not just friendly to eachother, but they now trust eachother. Both have at this point secretly shown interest in the other. No romance, but something is definitely growing.

In episode 5 things are starting to happen, and we get to see Dany having real feelings for Jon during this episode, even if she barely acts on them. Dany is clearly affected by Drogon and Jon having a moment. She’s surprised and intrigued by what happens, and finds it very attracting. This has been confirmed by the showwriters and Emilia Clarke if it wasn’t already obvious in the show; Dany got attracted to Jon in this scene. During their smalltalk later Jon is eying Dany out again, and what could’ve been a somewhat intimate moment about Jon having been killed and reborn is halted by Ser Jorah Friendzone, first of his name.

In the next scene, Dany is for the first time, albeit not intentionally, open about her feelings for Jon. Both Tyrion and Jorah picks up on this. She clearly doesn’t want Jon to leave, especially not on what is essentially a suicide mission. She does a half-hearted attempt at preventing his departure. In episode 3, she would’ve forcefully prevented him from leaving, but now in episode 5, her feelings for Jon have changed drastically. If anything, she seems to approve of Jon telling her that he doesn’t need her permission to do anything. She’s a Queen, but he’s a King. We know that Dany is attracted to strong men who treat her with respect and as an equal. No more attempts at making Jon bend the knee.

During the third and last scene in episode 5, Dany actually opens up to Jon about how she likes having him around. Jon does not reciprocate her feelings however (he probably wants to, but as we know, he’s telling himself that he doesn’t have time for a romance right now) and she wrongly interprets this as a sign that he doesn’t have any romantic feelings for her. Again, I think Dany was 100% sincere in episode 6 when she thought that “Jon Snow isn’t in love with me”. Up to this point, Jon has only shown his romantic feelings for Daenerys when she isn’t looking. How can she know? End of Episode 5 - Friendly relationship has grown into the start of a romantic relationship. Dany is clearly having romantic feelings for Jon at this point and can barely repress them. Jon has feelings for Dany as well, but unlike her, he can still repress them and hasn’t shown them yet.

Now, I’m not gonna delve deep into episode 6, since with all that’s happened during episode 3,4,5 and that happens during episode 6, I’d say the emotional development between Dany an Jon makes 100% sense. Dany’s feelings are obvious at this point (even if she tries to deflect them when Tyrion prods her), and when she flies north she is totally in love with Jon. Jon likewise finally cracks down in the end. Amazing what another near-death experience can do to your emotions right?

Their feelings for eachother at this point makes sense; they have alot of things in common (que mandatory “including genes”-joke,). They’ve both had a long and arduous journey to get to this point. Both have followers who follow them, not out of fear, but out of respect and love. Both have strong feelings on how to rule for the betterment of the people. Both have been reborn in a way, and both have suffered greatly but managed to come back. Both are considered special by the people around them, and in eachother they meet a person who treats them like no one else has ever done before:

Jon likes strong women, and Dany is by far the strongest (both in terms of willpower, determination and actual power) he’s ever met. He likes that Dany, like himself, is willing to do things the hard way if it’s the right way, and that she ultimately came to his aid when he needed it the most, even if she didn’t have to. She put her money where her mouth is and he’s clearly attracted to her and the stories surrounding her as well, but he won’t admit it.

Dany on the other hand is used to the fact that most strong men she meet either try to trample on her, take advantage of her, or simply care about her for her power and beauty. Que Jon Snow, elected King who treats her with nothing but respect, and as an absolute equal and who shares her view on ruling (people come first.) He also doesn’t seem to care about her due to her power and beauty (unlike Daario who only cared about Dany because of her power and good looks). All of these are qualities that she finds intriguing. Jon pose a “challenge” for her in a whole new way; he won’t submit but he won’t relent. Then add the fact that Jon for some “mysterious” reason can pet and be near her dragons, which no other man has ever been able to and the attraction makes total sense.

The culmination of their relation as of episode 6, and in my opinion the most beautiful thing in their relation so far, is how Jon metaphorically bends the knee in a situation where it’s pointless for him to do so.

This shows how much Jon actually loves and believes in her at this stage. He doesn’t bend the knee out of a strategical advantage or in order to get her support anymore, he does it out of pure respect and love for a woman who was willing to risk everything in order to help and save him and his men, even if she didn’t believe in him at first.

Their love is mutual, beautiful, logical and not a single bit forced. By far the best romantic relation portrayed in this show so far. Jon is Ice, Dany is Fire, and this is the Song of Ice and Fire.

Love Interests.

The Narrative Necessity and Purpose of Jon and Sansa Being Confronted by Them.

Alright I have questions. So many questions, on Sansa and Littlefinger’s scene in which they discuss Jon bending the knee to and possibly marrying Daenerys.

*Note: A previous, much shorter edition of this was written on @tiny-little-bird​ ‘s gifset. I’ve added a lot more to this. If you read my earlier version follow the ~’s for the added commentary.

I’ve seen a lot of shippers ask why have this scene? Why mention Daenerys’s appearance? Why mention Jon marrying Daenerys? Why, why, WHY???

Before I continue let me just be very frank and say that when I’m being analytical of the show, I try very hard to stray away from shipping goggles. I’m very particular in the way I read scenes. I never look for hints of my ship, because I know that if I do that the whole story and all dialogues will be distorted to me, and I’d risk the possibility of losing their essence. With that said, for the past two days I thought I had a clear understanding of this scene. Lord Baelish is pushing for what he’s been hoping for since he used the KotV to aid the North; for Sansa to take over the North as Queen, so that when he ‘marries her’ he’d have power over, not only the Vale, but all of the North as well. That much is clear, right?

“Who should the North rally behind? The trueborn daughter of Catelyn and Ned Stark born here at Winterfell, or a motherless bastard born in the South?”

“You’re the Lady of Winterfell. The King chose you to rule in his absence, and rule you have, wisely, ably. They say that they respect you, some may ever prefer you.”

We have seen him [ineffectively] planting these seeds into Sansa. We have seen him at her side, advising her, so that her rule in the North may be prosperous in the hopes the North will succumb to her rather than Jon.

So, okay, Littlefinger wants Sansa to rule the North and he uses the idea of Jon marrying a Targaryen Queen to nudge Sansa into action. The problem is that Jon has already bent the knee. Jon and Daenerys are already allies. And Sansa is already upset about that. That’s how the scene begins. We get a shot of Sansa reading a raven from Jon, she’s clearly annoyed and frustrated because; “[Jon’s] never asked for my opinion, why would he start now?” He’s “surrendered the northern crown without consulting [Sansa]” He’s already “pledged to fight for Daenerys Targaryen”

~SO, my question is not: Why does Littlefinger bring it up? because the answer to that is plain as day. My question is why do the writers have Littlefinger bring it up if Sansa is already upset and frustrated at Jon for bending the knee?

The way Belle looks at Adam/The Beast

After watching the movie again…. and again.. and again, i started noticing the different ways Belle looks at Adam (Yes, i’m making a point of calling him by his name from now on) and i felt like i needed to make a post (lengthy post) about it.

1. This is the first time Belle sees Adam. She’s shocked, which we all would be, i mean….. He’s a monster!

2. I wanted to point out the change from the first image to this one. At first glance, Belle is shocked, having never seen anything like him before, but in this one she’s terrified. Her father is being taken away from her by this monster and she feels there’s nothing she can do.

3. FIESTY BELLE! We’d seen a little bit of rebellious Belle early on with Gaston, but this is her proper letting loose. You tell him girl!!

4. The moment of hesitation here always catches me for a second. Is this maybe…just maybe, the first time Belle really feels anything towards Adam? Why would she turn around and help him. True, she’s a nice person, but she gives up her only chance at freedom to help this monster she knows nothing about. Could there be an underlying feeling towards him? 


5. Here, we see Belle showing something close to care. Like she feels sorry for Adam, or maybe helpless in making things better. Sharing a similar backstory with their mother dying, maybe this is were she first feels a connection towards him.

6. We all loved this moment. I mean, who wouldn’t fall in love at the sight of a library that big? Speaking of love. That pause, ^, If you just look, the way she stares at him is something a bit more than just laughing at his joke. She’s seeing a change in him, a change that she likes, and it looks as though she’s catching herself before she falls too far.

7. Another long look. What could it mean?!

8. ANNNND another one! Someone is starting to like the look of Adam. Even beneath all that hair and claws.

9. Okay we’ve all done this when we’ve been caught staring at someone we like. Come on Belle! You’re making it too obvious.

10. Yes, this is better, do it at a distance when he can’t see you. (Also, I love the new sequence of scenes for this song)

11. “Still, a romance.” We caught that little glance when he was looking away, you cheeky Belle.

12. Okay, now we can get back into the deeper looks. This is sympathy again. Knowing that a whole world has rejected him, she couldn’t help feeling sorry for him.

13. “Let’s go home.” First off, she called it home! Imagine how that makes Adam feel? That she feels his cursed, dark dusty castle is home. I feel like she really means it, that she’s begging him to take her somewhere that she is happy, and that she has good memories of. 

14. Okay, the eyebrow lift, how cute is that. Subtle, but it’s like she’s saying, “I scrub up well… yeah.. i know.” (I must say, a little come hither might be hidden in there somewhere)

15. Disbelief. The way she looks around, thinking to herself “Do i want to go?” “Do i want to leave this play that makes me so happy?” “Do i want to leave him?”

16. This turn. She makes it seem as though she thinks she’ll never see Adam again, but she’s already said thank you, so why turn around again? Was there something else she wanted to say? I think so, but maybe she didn’t know how to voice it, how to tell him, because maybe she didn’t really know either.

17. Fear again. She finally lays eyes on him, and she can see he is injured. What if she won’t be able to tell him how she feels?

18. Shock. This is where the Adam is dragging Gaston towards the edge of the castle wall. The last time we saw shock from Belle was the first time she saw Adam. Maybe she feels fear too that he is becoming what they all think he is….a Beast.

19. I think the she feels nothing here. In her arms is the dying body of the man she cares for. The only thing she can do is reasure him. Tell him it will be okay, all the while trying to convince herself.

20. This is desperation. She’s nearly there, she nearly understands what she is feeling, but she is too late and she knows it. She needs him to come back to her, to not leave her alone, not like she left him.

21. The realisation. We all know this moment. When the main character realises they are in love, and they try desperately, to tell the other person, in the hopes it might save them. Disney have done this a few times, one example being back in Tangled when Rapunzel saves Flynn/Eugene with a tear drop of pure love.

22. Shock. Each time Belle sees Adam for the first time in some way, she experiences some sort of shock. She’s unsure of what has happened. (As my brother said, she’s probably thinking “Thank God he’s handsome.”)

23. Relief, happiness, love, amazement. She knows now that she can be happy, she can be with this man she loves. It’s overwhelming, but she knows it is what she’s always wanted.

24. Love. There is nothing but love in that look. She is where she is meant to be, with who she is meant to be with, and she loves it.


Look at the difference. Look at the change over the period they spent together. That…… is Disney.

prologue ; next chapter


You stared out your bedroom window as the sun started to rise and illuminate the previously nightly black sky with warm tones of yellow, orange and pink. After Jimin had called you, you couldn’t get a hold of any more sleep that night, but still there was a feeling of proudness lingering in your chest. Despite not being able to fully ignore his call, you still managed to say ‘No’ to coming over to his dorm.

It’s something he’d frequently do, call you at random times of the day, more in the early hours of the morning than when it was actually mundane. You guessed that he probably had no other mindless toy, that would willingly get up and come over at 4am when it was class the next morning. But what can you say, you’d already lost count over how many times you sneaked out of your dorm, trying not to wake your roommates, who were already hating the fact that you were still wasting your time on someone like Jimin, and quickly ran across the campus just to see him.

Him.

Horoscopes by Gil Hizon - Week of July 30 - August 5, 2017

Season Seven. AKA The Muthafucking Reckoning

LEO (July 23 – August 22)

A little birdie told me that the distance between your reality and your fantasy is growing. No worries, queen. This shit is only temporary. As you proceed business as usual this week, you’ll find that any creative essence you used to possess lies dormant in the recesses of your mind. Don’t panic. Learn to live in the practicality of the now until the tide changes for yo ass.
=====

VIRGO (August 23 – September 22)

Dealing with sudden bad news - this is no foreign territory to you. You usually begin with a moment of disorientation, and your body and facial expressions fight to make sure that shit stays within your body. This will be the hardest part, especially since you’ll be at a public function. But after that, it’s just another ordinary week for you. Oh, and stock up on antacids. You gonna need it, gurr!
=====

LIBRA (September 23 – October 22)

That bitch you couldn’t stand last week is back at the forefront of your facial and this time, you ain’t bothered by this ho. Why is that? Well, first of all, no worries, you’re not becoming a gullible idiot. In reality, your meter of giving queens a second chance is moving up the fucking scale. So even though Felicia stole your boyfriend eons ago, you still feel like hanging with hurr. It’s all good, although she might steal your next one too.
=====

SCORPIO (October 23 – November 21)

You will not be in the best of moods this week, and all I can say is, “other bitches, beware!” Not even the sharpest-lizard-tongued VIRGO nor the nothing-fucking-fazes me TAURUS bitch will be able to withstand your venom. Will you still have friends in the aftermath? Of course, darling. Even at your worst you still make for a great drinking buddy.
=====

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 – December 21)

Admitting to social media that you’re smitten by a ho who is smitten by yo ass is no easy feat. There is a notion brewing within you that social media is still not the norm, because it feels so impersonal and alien. Well, get over that, bitch. Social media is here to muthafucking stay. There was a time when bitches rode horses to work and then came cars. Did these queens reject the automobiles? I didn’t think so!
=====

CAPRICORN (December 22 – January 19)

Security! Some bitch is about to enter your life and shake up any ideas you may have about dating and romance. And it’s about damn time, because frankly, we are tired of listening to you whine and complain about how you’re not at fault every time some ho never calls you again. So when this visionary graces your presence this week, you bettah muthafuckin listen to what she has to say.
=====

AQUARIUS (January 20 – February 18)

I urge you to allow yourself to be a needy ho this week. I know, I know. Needy hos look annoying on the surface, but gurl, if I know you (and I fucking do), you will find a way to make “clingy” look very cute. And honey, if it doesn’t work, we’ve always known you to be someone who marches to the beat of their own drum. When you think you look like a fool, to us, that’s just normal, queen.

=====

PISCES (February 19 – March 20)

You’re struggling between revealing all your cards to the public and keeping mum. This duality has never shaken you to the core, but why now? Here’s the thing - being open about your emotionality has been your default for a while. But recent events in your life have forced you to keep that shit contained and you didn’t get the memo that martial law is over. Here’s your fucking memo.
=====

ARIES (March 21 – April 19)

Watching you try to be subtle about your romantic feelings is like witnessing a newbie drag queen struggle with putting on her three-dollar Forever 21 fake lashes. You always a blunt ho so when you try to keep it cute inside, you run the risk of looking constipated. But if you wanna keep this new hottie in yo life, I suggest you give it the old college try. And by the way, whenever you randomly break out into song, that shit ain’t cute.
=====

TAURUS (April 20 – May 20)

You know what, bitch? Sometimes you’re so busy blaming your partner for your relationship obstacles that you’re forgetting that there’s two of you in the muthafucking equation. So the next time you feel even the slight urge to lash out at your other half because she can’t make a left turn correctly, or she can’t properly communicate her feelings to you; step back gurl. You may have some owning up to do as well.
=====

GEMINI (May 21 – June 21)

“Oh, woe is me. I keep getting invited to social events and my phone is ringing off the hook. I’m getting all these likes on social media and frankly, I just can’t keep up. Everyone’s always taking me out shopping or buying me dinner or both, and I’m beginning to get carpal tunnel syndrome writing all these thank you notes.” Bitch, shut the fuck up.
=====

CANCER (June 22 – July 22)

You’re feeling a certain way towards a ho. It’s the kind of feeling that you don’t even want to share to everyone else because if you do, it runs the risk of losing its specialness. You would rather enjoy this intense feeling in the quiet of the night. First of all, it’s totally okay to feel this way - you should always do you. Second of all, I’m gonna barf now.
=====

Imagine Chris turning the tables on you.

A/N: I’m not very good at pranks, I think that will be very obvious when you read this. This is a request from @castellandiangelo, I did end up writing your request. (I’m sorry if it’s bad, I’m not good at pranks!) I’ll make up for this sleep deprived piece, there’s an idea that’s been brewing for a while now. X

1st of April had finally arrived; it was the day you’d been waiting for since you came up with what you thought was the best, and most cruel prank ever. The prank was designed for your husband, Chris, and you’d joined forces with his mom and his brother to pull it off; they’d flown in from Boston just to help you. You still hadn’t decided if it was one of those ‘we-can-laugh-about-it-in-the-future’ pranks or a 'I’m-going-to-fucking-divorce-your-ass’ pranks, but seeing as Lisa and Scott were on board- you saw it as the former. You’d been with Chris for years and years now, so you knew him well. You knew he had a great sense of humor and a great love for your playful side, which made you ninety-nine percent sure he’d appreciate your prank; the sweet note at the end especially. But just to be safe and not to seem too smug, you lowered the probability percentage down to ninety-five.

The prank you’d been planning for over a month now involved Scott 'crashing’ Chris’ brand new Audi while taking you to lunch; Lisa calling from the emergency room; and Chris rushing down only to find you safe and sound with a dozen pink balloons and a sonogram. You’d found out you were pregnant a little while ago and wanted to find the right time to tell your husband, so why not April Fools? It was crazy and a little bit over the top, but then again- that was you. To be fair though, Chris had pulled some pretty horrendous pranks over the years. You could say you were only doing it as a way to get back at him for the time he visited you on your set and put a cockroach on you while you were filming a scene with Meryl Streep- an actress you so thoroughly admired- but hey, you weren’t the vindictive type.

“Do you think your son will divorce me after he finds out this is all just a prank?”

“No,” Lisa chuckled with a shake of her head. “He loves you way too much, and he’s going to be so happy about the baby news that- he’s not going to care about anything else.” You nodded in agreement after slight hesitation. “It’s April Fools and he’s a big boy, he can handle it.”

“I hope so,” you chuckled as you gathered the bundle of pink helium balloons. Lisa chuckled too as she grabbed her purse and headed towards your front door where loud knocking could be heard. “Could you get that, please? I bet it’s Scott, I hope he knows he’s not actually going to drive Chris’-”

“It’s not Scott,” Lisa cut you off as you walked around the corner; your eyes narrowed at the two police officers standing in your doorway with solemn expressions on their faces. “How can I help you gentlemen?” Lisa asked them. “Is there a particular person you’re looking for?”

“We’re here to speak with Y/N Y/L/N,” the taller male answered and you didn’t know to snicker or be genuinely concerned. For all you knew, they were part of Chris’ plan to prank you before you could him. “We have reason to believe that one of the victims involved in the accident on route six is your brother, Oliver Y/L/N.”

“That’s impossible,” you chuckled with narrowed eyes. “My brother’s out of town until the end of the month, he couldn’t possibly be in a car accident. Are you absolutely sure that he’s involved? Is there a possibility that you’re mistaken?”

“We are unable to identify the body, but his motorbike was placed at the crash site,” the shorter male informed you and your heart dropped when you remembered Chris had taken the bike- your brother had left at your place for safe keeping- this morning. “Do you know anyone with access to your brother’s bike? We could really use-”

“My husband,” you cut him off and you heard Lisa gasp. “My husband took my brother’s bike out this morning. Oh my God,” you breathed and felt the bundle of balloons escape your grip; they flew to touch the ceiling. “No no no,” you shook your head. “That’s impossible, Chris wouldn’t- he’s too careful on the- No,” another head shake. “It can’t be him, my husband is not dead!” You felt the tears spill out of your eyes.

“We’re very sorry to ask you to do so, but we’re going to need you to come with us to help identify the body.” The taller male told you and you quickly nodded, grabbing your purse by the door. You glanced over your shoulder at Lisa as you followed the police officers out; she was lost in her thoughts. “After you, Miss Y/L/N.” He held his car door open for you.

“Just give me a moment,” you told him and he nodded. “Lisa,” you walked over to her and took her shaky hands in yours. “We don’t know if it’s him,” your voice broke as you tried to reassure her. “Maybe he let someone else use Oliver’s bike after getting to the studio, or maybe the bike got stolen- I don’t- um- I don’t know,” you tried not to start crying when you remembered you were pregnant and your daughter might not have a father. “But we mustn’t lose hope yet because…” You trailed off, unable to find the right words.

“I can’t go down, Y/N,” she shook her head and you nodded understandingly. “I’m sorry,” she hugged you and you hugged her back, taking slow breaths to stop yourself from breaking down. “But you’re right, we don’t know yet.” She said as she pulled away; you nodded in response. “Call me as soon as you find out, okay?”

“Okay,” you nodded.

You left her at your house then got into the police car and let them take you to the crash site. You may not have been a religious person, but it didn’t stop you from praying. You couldn’t lose Chris, especially now that you were pregnant. You didn’t know what to do with a child, you had a child because of him- because you loved him. How were you meant to raise that child alone? How were you meant to look at your daughter and tell her her dad was the most amazing man you’d ever met and never let her meet him? How were you going to survive the rest of your life without the love of your life? Your hand rested on your stomach and you broke down crying, silently begging whatever greater being for your husband to be alive.
• • • • • • • •
The car pulled to a stop in front of a park; the same one where you and Chris worked together on screen for the first time, not that you were in the right mindset to notice. Your entire world had been rocked thanks to your husband and his insane plan to turn the tables on you, except his plans weren’t as easy to find out about as he’d confided in professional actors rather than family members. Of course he’d confided in Lisa and Scott- the two who accidentally let both your pregnancy and prank plans slip, but somehow managed to keep his to themselves- and they both told him it was a bad idea and that you were going to be pissed when you found out it was all just a prank. But did Chris listen? No, because clearly it wasn’t a bad enough idea if his mother and brother didn’t stop him from doing it. Plus- Chris knew you, you’d appreciate a good prank; he was ninety-five percent sure about it. If you didn’t- well, he had a spontaneous trip to Paris to make up for his insanity.

“Wait,” your eyes narrowed as the policemen got out of the car. One opened the car door for you and beckoned you out. “I don’t understand, I thought the accident was on route six.” He didn’t say anything, he just gestured for you to follow him. “I just want to know if my husband’s okay,” you told them and they both nodded.

Chris spotted you and the 'police officers’ approaching and he sat on your brother’s motorbike, laughing. It was pretty sick joke, yes, but he was so excited to celebrate the pregnancy with you that- he didn’t care. He knew when you saw him that you’d understand that it was just an April Fools joke and laugh because he’d turn the tables on you instead.

“Where are you tak-” You stopped yourself when you saw Chris, perfectly fine and in one piece. He waved at you with a cheeky smile; you were so relieved that you couldn’t think about anything else- like how it was just a stupid prank. “Thank God,” you breathed and ran towards him as he got off the bike. “Oh my God,” you threw your arms around his neck and he hugged you tightly, burying his face in the crook of your neck. “I thought you were dead,” you started crying out of absolute relief.

“Yeah, I’m not that easy to kill,” he chuckled. “April Fools, baby.” He said and you pushed him away, frowning. “What?” He laughed, grabbing his left breast. “I just elaborated on your plans a little bit. We’re in the film industry, I thought you’d appreciate the dramatics.”

“A little bit?!” You slapped his arm and he pressed his lips together, suppressing his urge to laugh. “They told me you were dead, Chris. Mine was just emergency room, yours was death! Death, Chris, death.” You emphasized and he nodded, chuckling as he pulled you into his arms for another tight hug. “What the hell is wrong with you?” You chuckled wearily as you hugged him back; you were too happy that he was okay to be mad about the severity of his actions. “No more April Fools for us,” you said, pressing your head against his chest. “We clearly don’t know how to prank each other, it’s getting a little much.”

“Okay,” he chuckled, kissing the top of your head. “I’m sorry, baby. I know it’s been a stressful day, my mom and Scott both said it was a bad idea.” You scoffed and chuckled at the same time; no wonder Lisa didn’t come down. “But hey,” he pulled the plane tickets out of his back pocket as he pulled away from you. “We can relax in Paris.”

“I was about to ask you how you were going to make up for this,” you smiled as you took the tickets from him; he chuckled in response. “Do you want to know how I’m going to make up for the prank that didn’t happen?” You quizzed, reaching into your own back pocket for the sonogram.

“I think I already know,” he smiled and placed his hand on your stomach. “They might have let the baby news slip too when they let your prank plans slip.” You chuckled and pulled the sonogram from your pocket, passing it to him. “I can’t believe we’re going to be parents to a baby girl,” he smiled at the sonogram then at you when you placed a hand over his.

“I know, right?” You laughed. “We are so immature and we’re about to be parents,” you said and he joined you in laughter. “Ground rules before the baby comes, no more pranks like these. No more dead or emergency room pranks because- it’s ridiculous and it’s irresponsible.” He nodded in agreement, chuckling. “I am so glad it was just a prank,” you told him and hugged him again. “I don’t know what I would’ve done if I’d lost you.”

“I’m not going anywhere, sweetheart,” he hugged you tightly as he whispered into your hair. “Not for a very, very long time.” You smiled and looked up at him. “I love you,” he smiled and dipped his head to meet your lips.

“And you’re lucky I still love you after that,” you bit playfully.

“Yes I am,” he laughed.

How different things might be if, rather than saying “I think I’m in love,” we were saying “I’ve connected with someone in a way that makes me think I’m on the way to knowing love.” Or if instead of saying “I am in love” we said “I am loving” or “I will love.” Our patterns around romantic love are unlikely to change if we do not change our language.

Antis commenting stop MAKING everything about Destiel on the pb&j picture… lmao, like we are FORCING it into places where it’s just oh-not-relevant.

Literally we are just giving facts here then of course having fun with speculation but the facts are THERE. It’s a picture of Dean in front of pb&j ingredients and the show has repeatedly made pb&j a reference to Cas (and his foray into humanity) in 9x03 and 9x11 so it’s a natural link. Same as Jack wearing a beige coat is a clear mirror of Cas (and doesn’t have to do in itself with Destiel of course just general character stuff).

This pb&j pic however is just another in the long list of stuff coming out during this hiatus that supports what we have already been TOLD at SDCC, that it is a Cas heavy season with a big emphasis on Dean’s emotions in the early episodes. It’s not US making this stuff consistently about Destiel, it’s the SHOW.

It’s consistent. It’s been stated out loud at cons and in interviews that emotions, character plot (and Singer even uses the word “relationships”) are the theme of the season. Even if platonic it’s still going to centre around Dean and Cas a lot here. And I just don’t read any of these tropes as platonic lbr if you compare to any movie or TV show you know it’s not platonically written or acted at this point. Just look at GoT squishing all the same tropes into 4 episodes ending in canon romance.

Accidents don’t happen accidentally. I’m honestly flummoxed as to how this is twisting anything when it’s this consistent, it’s like a barrage of “hey did you notice the story is going to centre on Dean and Cas and Dean’s emotions yet?!”.

Get ready for “EPICsode 06” is all I’m saying.

Three Times Steve Made Tony Blush

Steve/Tony

Summary:  …and one time Tony returned the favor.

[Read it on AO3]

Words: 1 426

1.

Steve had honest to god not done it on purpose, but here they were anyway, with Tony playfully glaring at him through raised hands that just couldn’t decide on whether they should cover his red face or not. And Steve, in his turn, couldn’t stop grinning.

“Stop it,” Tony snapped, though it came out more like a whine.

“What?”

“Stop looking so smug about this.”

“I’ve never seen you blush before. I can’t help it.” That was a lie, of course. He’d seen Tony turn interesting shades of pink in more intimate situations, but never like this, out in the open at the kitchen table.

And all Steve had done was call him beautiful.

She Deserves The World- Gerard Way

Okay so I wanted to see if you guys liked Gerard Way from My Chem. I saw a few people requested for me to write something on him and I love My Chem so I got really excited. I hope you guys like it.

Gerard’s P.O.V.

There was this girl. This girl that was so beautiful and had so much talent. She loved life and she was so happy all the time.

She trapped me with those big Y/E/C eyes. Her laugh could cure the world of all sadness. Her kind heart could be enough to save the entire world. She’d always been there for me, but was I there for her when she needed me? I liked thinking I was but I wasn’t. At least not this time. She was one of those people that smiled no matter what, always looking for the good in others. She was my best friend and I loved her, but I couldn’t have her. I’ve loved her for the past 2 years, ever since she started dating Bryan.

He was no good for her. I could see she wasn’t happy. He was a total dick to her. He drank all day long while she worked hard to supply money for his addiction. She can say she’s fine, but I could see the bruises on her back. I know he beat her, but I for some reason didn’t have the balls to say anything to her.

We have been best friends for years and I could see the light starting to slowly burn out in her. She had been distancing herself from me lately and I killed me knowing he had control over her. I don’t understand what she saw in him in the first place. I know that it might seem hypocritical of me to be saying all this because I was an alcoholic, but changed when I met her. She was the reason I gave up the awful lifestyle.

“Hey Y/N, it’s been like 4 days since I’ve talked to you. I’m starting to get a little worried. Please call me.”

Of course I got her voicemail. We use to talk to each other everyday. It started off with her just ignoring my calls but she would text me saying she was okay. Now it’s been 4 days with no contact. I’ve texted her, I’ve called her, I’ve even driven past her apartment. I saw her car there each time. I looked like it hadn’t moved. It didn’t concern me too much until today when I drove passed and saw the shades to the apartment all closed. She was the type to always want light to be shining.

This wasn’t like her. Something was really wrong. My predictions were only made more sense when suddenly Bryan came out of the front door yelling something about how slutty she is. I could stand hearing him talk to her like that. I saw her standing in the doorway. She looked so different.

Bryan drove off quickly in his truck and Y/N shut the front door. I had to see her even if she didn’t want to see me.

I parked my car on the street and walked up to the door. When I knocked on the door there was no answer. I rang the doorbell, still no answer. I called for her. Still no answer. I could knew something was happening behind this door that if I didn’t get in now, something worse was about to happen.

I knew she kept a key under the mat. Once I got the door open I called out her name again.

“Y/N. Where are you?” there was no response again. Where the hell was she. As I made my way through her apartment I saw all the empty bottles of beer, some were shattered on the ground. The smell of the apartment could get you drunk. Nothing could prepare me for what I was about to see.

I saw her standing at the kitchen counter staring down at a glass of water and pills.

Her entire body was covered in dark bruises. She was so out of it she didn’t even see that I was there. I didn’t want to scare her but I had to say something before she made a horrible mistake.

“Y/N?” I said softly. It still made her jump.

“Oh hey Gerard.” she said with the fakest voice and smile.

“Y/N, did he do this to you?” I asked gesturing to her bruised body.

She looked down at her arms then back to me. The light was gone. Her eyes were scared. I could see that she didn’t see the point in life any more. She just stood there staring at me.

“Y/N, we have to get you out of here. Please.”

“I can’t. You need to leave before he gets back fr-” she was cut off by the sound of a truck pulling up.

I saw fear wash over her.

“Gerard get the fuck out of here now. It’s for the best. Please.” she begged pushing me out the back door.

“Y/N, I’m not leaving you here. He can beat the living shit out of me. He’s not putting a hand on you.” I pushed my way back into the apartment.

“Y/N WHERE ARE YOU? WHO’S WITH YOU.” Bryan yelled as he came in the front door.

“In the kitchen. Gerard stopped by to ask me a question, he’s leaving now though.” she said back.

“Gerard if you care at all about me you’ll leave. I’ll text you later I promise. Please.” she begged.

“Okay fine, but Y/N please call me.” she nodded and I walked out of the kitchen and headed for the front door. I saw Bryan standing in the living room. He looked drunk and angry. It pained me leaving but I wasn’t leaving for good.

I shut the front door and walked to the back of the apartment where I could peek through a window. I could see Bryan still standing in the living room where Y/N just entered. I saw his fist clench and her tense up.

He was screaming at her and she just took it. I guess after years of it she knew how to not make it worse. When I saw his fist raise I never ran so fast. I pushed through the back door and went straight to the living room where Y/N was on the ground in a ball. Bryan was on the ground in second with me on top of him punching him in the face.

I was so fucking angry.

“DON’T YOU FUCKING EVER LAY A HAND ON Y/N AGAIN OR I’LL FUCKING KILL YOU.” I screamed. I got up when I knew Bryan wouldn’t be able to.

I walked over to Y/N who was now in the corner of the room rocking back and forth.

I kneeled next to her and lifted her chin.

“Hey, hey look at me. You’re okay, this is all going to be okay. COme with me and i’ll make sure of that. Listen we have to go. I’ll bring you to my place. You’re not staying here. Ever again.” I spoke as soft as I could. She looked at me with tears in her eyes.

“Please bring me far away from here. I’m ready to leave.” I knew she wouldn’t be able to walk she was shaking so badly. I scooped her up brought her to my car.

The ride back to my place was silent. She was a totally different person from who she was years ago. She was fragile now, broken, hurt, and scared. I knew I had to be there for her and I knew this was going to take time. Time is what she needed and time was what I was going to give her.

Over the next few weeks she opened up more to me. She told me the horror stories that Bryan put her through. She told me of her sleepless nights, the beatings, the name calling, the abuse. She told me about the time when she came home 15 minutes late due to traffic and he beat her until she could barely breath. She told me how he would take her phone and look at everything she did on there and how he didn’t want her talking to me anymore.

I saw that it hurt for her to talk about it so I never asked questions. I just listened and held her when she needed to be held.

Even with her so different for those many years ago, I still loved her.

It had been 4 months since that day. She had light back in her, she was finally the Y/N I fell in love with. I couldn’t help but stare at her when she had that smile that could save the world.

“Why are you looking at me like that?” she asked giggling as we sat at my kitchen table.

“Y/N can I ask you something?”

“Sure. Anything.”

I took in a deep breath before talking. “Why? What did you see in him? Why did you stay?” I saw the smile fade as she looked to the floor. I felt bad and before I could apologize she looked at me.

“Have I ever told you my biggest fear?” I shook my head no.

“Ever since I was little I had this fear of being alone. A fear of not being loved. So i threw myself at the first guy. I didn’t want to stay, but I thought that was what love was. I realized that what Bryan was wasn’t love after only a few months, but my fear of being alone kept me there. I don’t want to die alone and it scares the shit out of me everyday knowing I could have lost something that is actual love. The that brings me to my next fear. Telling someone I love them.” she staring at her hands.

I sat there letting everything she just said sink in.

“So, Gerard. Can I ask you a question now?”

“In a minute, but first I want to say something.” she looked at me shocked by my response.

“Y/N, I’ve known you for over ten years now. You made me a better person and you have always been there for me. When you started dating Bryan and we stopped talking so much, you changed. I remember the first time I realized something and it was so hard realizing this thing. Y/N I love you, I love you more than just friends. You saved me and you’ve been there for me. I wanna do the same for you. I understand if you’re not ready to hear any of this. I know you just got out of a really bad relationship but  want you to know that I’ll be here waiting for when you are ready, if you feel the same way. But if not, I also understand why…” I started to ramble on but Y//N cut me off.

“Gee, shut up and get over here.” she said standing up. I stood and before I could get to her she was kissing me. I kissed her back and it was just as perfect as I imagined it.

When we pulled apart she had that light back in her eyes, the smile, the happiness,and I couldn’t help but just take in all her beauty.

“Gerard, I love you. You the one I’ve loved since the beginning. I dated Bryan as a distraction. I regret all of it, but I wouldn’t change it if that means we wouldn’t be where we are right now. Gee, I’m not ready for a big relationship right now, but I wanna be with you. I wanna take this slow.”

“I will do anything you want, because that’s what love is. I want to show you what love is Y/N. We can do whatever you want. I’ll give you the fucking world. Out of all people I know, you deserve it the most.” pulled her close and she wrapped her arms around me.

“Thank you Gee. You always know how to make me feel better. I’m sorry for changing so much.”

“Don’t apologize, I don’t want to hear you apologizing for something you couldn’t control. You’re perfect in my eyes and you always were. Nothing will ever change my love for you.”

I meant these words from the bottom of my heart. I knew this would take time for her to heal, but I was going to be there for my best friend, now girlfriend until she felt safe.

Tripping Over the Blue Line (13/45)

It’s a transition. That’s what Emma’s calling it. She’s transitioning from one team to another, from one coast to another and she’s definitely not worried. Nope. She’s fine. Really. She’s promised Mary Margaret ten times already. So she got fired. Whatever. She’s fine, ready to settle into life with the New York Rangers. She’s got a job to do. And she doesn’t care about Killian Jones, captain of the New York Rangers. At all.

He’s done. One more season and he’s a free agent and he’s out. It’s win or nothing for Killian. He’s going to win a Stanley Cup and then he’s going to stop being the face of the franchise and he’s going to go play for some other garbage team where his name won’t be used as puns in New York Post headlines. That’s the plan. And Emma Swan, director of New York Rangers community relations isn’t going to change that. At all.

They are both horrible liars.

AN: HAPPY SEASON OPENER! Things. Are. Happening. In case anyone was wondering, I listened to a lot of “Time” by Cute Is What We Aim For while writing this chapter because not only does it fit, but I have not listened to new music since, approximately, 2008. As always, I can’t thank you guys enough for every single word of response to this story. It blows my mind. My endless gratitude to @laurnorder, @distant-rose & @beautiful-swan - who has a NEW EDIT FOR THIS CHAPTER, AGH.

It was raining.

Of course.

“Ok,” Emma said sharply, stopping short in front of Merida as she nearly collided with her back. “Go over the itinerary one more time.”

Merida glanced down at the clipboard in her hand and nodded once and Emma got the very distinct impression she was being placated – she didn’t care.

Warning: Samurai Jack Season 5 Spoilers ahead, don’t read if you haven’t watched

To explain this vaguepost I made about Samurai Jack, I am going to go in depth about the latest episode of Season 5, aka episode 8. THERE WILL BE SPOILERS, so if you haven’t seen the episode scroll down and don’t read. It wont make much sense anyway if you haven’t seen it anyway and I wont be putting this under a cut for preservation purposes.

Also, I’m going to sound very pissed off in this post, and I want you to know that it does not come from a place of hate for the show itself. I love Samurai Jack and it’s that love that makes me as passionate as I am and urges me to be so violently critical. Please be aware of this as you’re reading and don’t take what I say to heart. All critique is opinion and this is just mine.

Alright, here we go!


For those of you who haven’t seen the soon to be infamous, or most likely already infamous by the time of me posting this, scene, let me provide a visual for my absolute distaste for this goddamn episode.

THIS SCENE GENUINELY DISGUSTED ME. And not because of the vile grub filled fight that preceded it, or the icky grey goo the two are covered in. No, this disgusts me because it’s a cop out. It cements the entire awkwardly cringy, hamfisted relationship that this episode bashed against our skulls and FORCED us to accept.

Let me explain by providing a point of comparison, and because this is relevant to life recently, and because of the new game that was released. We’re going to be comparing Jack’s and Ashi’s relationship with that of Ms. Commander Shepard and Garrus Vakarian.

First, why this episode DISGUSTED me on so many levels.

I’ll admit, this episode started innocently enough, they wrote Jack a little more naive and wide eyed than usual as he tasted weird alien foods, but I can accept that he really has seen stuff this odd before and that it just doesn’t phase him at this point. Especially since 50 years have passed since then, although most of that time was spent with him in a depression but whatever, suspension of disbelief and all that jazz. It made for some funny scenes, despite the generic “woman are so different hurr durr” joke shoved in. It’s as soon as they get on their ride that it gets wince worthy.

They’re forced into eachother’s space and IMMEDIATELY we see Jack regarding Ashi differently. He’s no longer treating her as the person he’s been traveling with over the span of what we can assume to be a couple of months, or even the student he had seemed to regard her as at the beginning. Suddenly, he’s stammering on his words, and acting like an awkward 8 year old with a school yard crush. I had paused MULTIPLE TIMES in this scene because it made me so sick and uncomfortable. It was so cringy that it took me an extra 10 minutes just to get through that scene alone. And it gets WORSE!

They have an admittedly cool fight scene with some tiger furries, although more of that cringy stereotypical “boy meets girl” crap gets sprinkled in. Whatever, it ends and the two are acting the same, regarding each other as people and thankfully it continues through most of the episode.

Until the last fight scene, that last goddamn scene. 

This is where Ashi’s clothes just HAPPEN to be chewed off by those weird grub things, (even though they didn’t do that before and had aimed for open skin the first time but whatever, nitpicks) and Jack is stammering AGAIN because “OH BOI naked w-w-woman how do i f-f-f-f-function!!?!?!?!!?!” Whatever, it passed and again there’s another amazing fight scene with the two screaming in agony as they think this is the end, and when it  isn’t they end up macking each other’s faces! What the hell?! That was out of goddamn nowhere!

AND IT JUST ENDS LIKE THAT! No further development, no real explanation, just over and done!

Now I want you to compare this to Garrus and Shepard. (honestly I could’ve picked any relationship option from the game as they’re all amazing, but these two prove my point the strongest)

They also are soldiers in arms, fighters set against incredible odds within a small group. But why is it when I think of these two and their relationship with each other I don’t want to vomit?

BECAUSE IT COMES FROM A PLACE OF MUTUAL RESPECT. These two don’t just meet each other and act like stammering kids, and it definitely doesn’t just pop out of nowhere either. THEIR RELATIONSHIP STARTS OUT ON A STRONG FOUNDATION OF MUTUAL RESPECT AND AN ADMIRATION FOR EACH OTHER’S ABILITIES AND SKILLS AS BOTH PEOPLE AND SOLDIERS. They like each other regardless of species or gender, it all stemmed from that place of RESPECT, and as they got to know each other they grew and developed as people influenced by one another. Shepard’s decisions have a heavy impact on Garrus and his points of view in Mass Effect 1, and stretch on to the rest of the trilogy. You see the two of them regard each other fondly, see the camaraderie between them and the acknowledgement of not just their strengths, but their faults as well. They see each other as PEOPLE first and foremost.

And you want to know when the two ACTUALLY got into their relationship? When they took that leap from friends to lovers?

That’s right, it wasn’t until MASS EFFECT 3 when they officially declared themselves as boyfriend and girlfriend. Yeah, they dance around that line in Mass Effect 2 but EVEN THEN they were still testing things out. EVEN THEN they were figuring out where they stood, testing the waters and exploring not just each other’s bodies (yeah yeah laugh it up) but their feelings for one another. And even then it all centered around their respect and admiration as PEOPLE, and not as a man and a woman.

And that’s what I HATE about the Samurai Jack episode. When Jack was looking at Ashi and blushing, when he was stammering on his words like a bumbling idiot, it wasn’t because of any deep seated respect for Ashi. It wasn’t any admiration that made him so clumsy and awkward. It was the typical Valentines Day, lovey dovey, shoehorned in bullcrap you see in every romance oriented episode in nearly every cartoon on TV. There’s no development, no slow steps, no figuring things out together, and definitely no development at all. It makes me uncomfortable, disgusted, and most of all disappointed.

And I know some people will say “but Garrus was stammering too when he was in Shepard’s room in Mass Effect 2″ and listen, that’s DIFFERENT. It’s DIFFERENT because WE KNOW IT STILL COMES FROM THAT PLACE OF ADMIRATION AND RESPECT. He’s not stammering because “oh it is gurl how do i talk to gurl, beep boop error!”, he’s stammering because this is his Commander! This is his superior! And above all, this is someone who he’s looked up to for years! He wants the moment to be perfect not just for him, but for her as well, because he CARES that much about her that much! And Shepard sees this and it leads to a scene that will have INFINITELY MORE emotional impact than that goddamn scene in Samurai Jack ever will.

This scene alone conveys more than any kiss in any shoehorned romance episode in any cartoon. And that’s what I hate the most. This is such a common trope in cartoons that people barely notice, we’re so normalized to it that we just let it pass by without so much as a sidelong glance. 

BUT WE SHOULDN’T SETTLE FOR THIS. We should DEMAND more in depth romantic development, more fleshed out characters that impact one another as they get to know each other. Samurai Jack Season 5, Episode 8 should NOT BE THE NORM. SHAKARIAN SHOULD BE THE NORM. And that’s what disappoints me.

Samurai Jack should be above this, it should be doing better than this. All of animation should be doing better than this goddamn episode.
