what she means:
freaks and geeks was way ahead of its time and was so well written and well acted with the perfect mix of comedy and drama and explored such interesting and complex themes as well as being the most realistic show about high school on tv and still resonating with teens today and i'm still not over the fact that it got cancelled after just one season
I like how on The Crown nothing happens but that Hans Zimmer score BLARES in the background so you’re like. Oh fuck. These rich white inbreds are shooting at fake ducks or something and I think the world’s ending.
can you say something positive about this show bc i truly feel horrible and all i see are negative comments
sure thing fam! I’ve got a million and one great things to say about shadowhunters!
let’s start with the cast…..oh man the cast, have you ever seen or heard of a lovelier group of people? a sweet and perfect redheaded angel? a cow-loving farmer sunflower man? a sexy british rapscallion? a latina goddess who is the sweetest angel in the world? a hilarious but also very profound and extremely talent soft brooklyn hipster? the most talented dancer/human to ever grace the world who is also a complete wondeful dork? the sweetest and funniest and most wonderful person who ever did wear an ascot? they’re perfect
nothing makes me happier than their friendships with each other and just their general sweetness :))))
i mean every dynamic of theirs is adorable and hilarious? kat and alberto’s friendship, domberto’s antics, the parabatri feels, dom’s lil crush on matthew, the esther/shelby/shumdario friendship! em being an older sister to kat!! how lovely are they all!!
and of course, of course, how earnest they are towards the show because they know how important it is to all of us, and it’s heartwarming to see all the effort that they put into the show, as well as the amount of respect and compassion they have while interacting with fans is the most wonderful thing
and of course, the fact that the people behind the show always listen to and respond to fan feedback, positive or negative! they really care about us, and it’s lovely to see :)
personally, i think the writing of the show has gotten amazing! season 1 was fantastic, but all of the sort of cringey dialogue and ‘wow, nobody would actually say those words’ is gone and everything is much more textured and real, and it’s really really really living up to the potential of its premise!
it’s got a gritty NYC setting and its about badass angelic soldiers fighting a demon apocalypse, all while battling these insidious problems inside their own society as well, with no real moral high ground to be achieved, but really just a scramble for survival and trying to do the right thing, and the tone of the new season is JUST PERFECT for that
i think the show has such amazing and dimensionalized relationships like i haven’t seen in a lot of much more highbrow fiction - the romantic stuff too, but i love how important and well-written platonic and family relationships are in the show!
you look at a family like the lightwoods, and they’re so real - not just the love that they have for each other, but also the issues that they face, and the struggles between parents and children and siblings. amazing. well-written AS FUCK
the bonds between alec and izzy and jace!! are so well-written, so well-acted!! the relationships between luke and clary/simon/maia!! astonishingly good
there’s so much texture and richness to all of them it’s crazy
but not JUST those super close familial relationships - every single interaction has me floored with how great it is, including ‘rare’ ones like jace and magnus, or clary and alec, or clary and magnus, or magnus and izzy
every character has such great acting chemistry with one another, and so every relationship just comes across as rich and real in a way that a lot of lesser shows can’t accomplish
let’s talk about acting! how amazingly has every cast member improved over the course of the show? even if they didn’t start off the first season as amazing, can you believe how great everyone is? how beautifully kat captured the grief of losing jocelyn in 2x05? how amazingly dom is portraying jace’s inner struggles and suffering about valentine and his identity? how much dimension and depth harry can give us in just one glance? how matt perfectly portrays the inner conflicts of a man who was never allowed to show his true feelings on his face? how beautifully alberto shows the struggle of not belonging anywhere that you used to call home? with what grace emeraude brings us izzy’s trials and suffering? how perfectly isaiah depicted not only the grief over losing everything - his world, his parabatai, the woman he loves, but also the struggles of having to get up from the pain and be there for his children? amazing. hats off to all and emmys all around
every character also has so much - so much - dimension?
like, not a single one of the characters is the type of YA-fantasy caricature than you see so much in this genre - each of them is fully fleshed out with flaws and strengths, and each character interacts and copes with the horrible events of their lives in completely different ways, and it’s just lovely to see that kind of commitment to character even on a fantasy/action-driven show, and that not all of it has to be directly addressed and shoved in your face, but can be communicated through subtleties of acting and writing
and each of them has their own critical/crucial role to play in the story? none of them are incidental or disposable and i love it!
the special effects in season two are SO! damn!! good!! holy hell did you see the warlock fight this episode? beautiful! astonishing!
i love the mythology of the show! it’s so crazy interesting to explore this world, because it’s not the type of world you see in a typical YA-low-fantasy type of setting - the shadowhunters’ society is such a new and refreshing mythology, with all of their customs and their ceremonies and their laws and myths and angels and runes - i love seeing them unveil more and more of it, because it’s honestly so original and interesting
like did you see the rune ceremony in this ep? it was almost haunting b/c i just love thinking about this ancient order of angelic warriors and of course all of the complications of the societal hierarchies in relation to the other types of magical races
and don’t get me started on the other types of mythologies, especially warlocks! i love the idea of all these esoteric spells and potions and crap that shadowhunters don’t even know about and can’t even imagine the power of - it’s so interesting and i love how they’re fleshing it all out bit by bit
and i love the merging of the regular urban NYC setting with the shadow word, in locales like the jade wolf, the hotel dumort, and even the insitute - how interesting and seamless it seems sometimes? it just gives the world so much texture
and of course, the romance is great! like i said, every actor has fantastic chemistry with each other - even if they’re not endgames like simon/maia or climon, they’re so well-acted and well portrayed
malec is fantastic - i’ve almost never seen a relationship on a show portrayed with such gravitas and realness! i love how they didn’t let either character get subsumed by the relationship, but they’re also not ignoring the existence of it to give the character their own storylines independent of it
and of course it’s so darn cute :) and harry and matthew put so much time and effort into it and im so thankful for them
What's your favorite moment from Supergirl's season 2 so far ?
Alex’s coming out speech to Maggie at the bar. I’ve always had a love for this show ever since it premiered, but this scene brought it to the obsession levels you see from me today.
I love a lot of the story elements this season - Superman, Cadmus, the Luthors, alien amnesty, the Martians, Kara making punching bags out of blocks of concrete, etc. - but let’s be real. Alex’s journey is probably the crown jewel of Supergirl season 2.
The timing and context have personal significance to me. I came out at almost the exact same time that season 2 started airing. I had no idea this storyline was going to happen, let alone with my favorite character on the show.
The relationship with Maggie was teased for a few episodes, but the scene at the bar was the first real indication of just how well written and well acted this story was going to be done, and how seriously it was going to be treated on the show. It blew my mind. Most people reference the following episode where Alex formally came out, but this is the moment that will always stick out to me. As someone a little bit older who is just coming out, and who has spent much of her life taking care of her sisters and putting a little too much energy into trying to be perfect, this speech hit very close to home.
Wow, that turned out to be a way more loaded question than I expected.
what are your favorite movies and shows? maybe top 5-10 each? just for fun!
OK. I will do 10 each because there will be categories. The first five are movies/shows I respect and admire in terms of the form, I think they’re excellent examples of that medium and well-crafted and the second five are movies/shows that may not necessarily be the best or movies/shows and ones that don’t necessarily have my utmost respect as superb examples of the medium but they’re ones I consistently rewatch.
1. Do The Right Thing
This movie is always relevant, there are so many layers and I’m introduced to a different theme or issue every time I watch it, it is an extremely important movie and it is well-crafted and well-written and well-executed.
One of the very few movies that can pull off a voiceover. Scorsese is my favourite director and this movie is well-acted, well-directed, brutal and entertaining.
3. Raging Bull
Like I said, Scorsese is my favourite director and Raging Bull is heralded as his masterpiece. At the time he thought it would be his final film and De Niro is credited for saving his life by persuading him to make it.
4. Boyz N The Hood
Boyz N The Hood lacks subtlety but then again it’s not supposed to be a subtle movie, it is extremely powerful and tragic and had a very big impact on me at a young age.
5. The Godfather
I mean, it’s a masterpiece.
1. The Wire
It took me 11 tries to get into The Wire but I have yet to watch a show that is so thorough in its crafting, in its acting, in its perspectives, it is excellent television.
2. The West Wing
Like everything, there are issues with The West Wing but it is well-written, witty and well-acted.
Listen, I just found out that this show got cancelled and I’m hella pissed right now but it was a beautifully-acted, beautifully-shot, important, powerful show.
4. Breaking Bad
A very tight show, well-crafted, no season, no episode is wasted, extremely well-done.
5. Buffy The Vampire Slayer
This is a show that goes into both categories. One I can watch over and over again and one that I deeply respect as a show.
*bonus* Avatar The Last Airbender
A study in plot, character development and world-building. Excellent.
6. LOTR Trilogy
It’s epic, it’s grand and I find it extremely comforting. If I’m having a really bad day or if I feel really anxious or upset, LOTR calms me down. During my time in the mountains (which sadly ends this week) every time I’ve gone on a hike or a long walk I make an LOTR reference. I just love this trilogy so much.
7. POTC Trilogy
I watch any of the three movies when I need to go to sleep and I put them on for background noise and the cinematic nature of it, the panoramic shots, they usually help me write.
8. The Breakfast Club
I grew up watching this movie because my mom had it on tape (which I don’t know why, she is not someone who would like this movie at all) and every year I got a new joke and I of course appreciate as a teen classic.
9. You’ve Got Mail
Very smart, very witty, very light, very funny, very feel-good, like everything it has issues, but it’s just, it’s the perfect romcom.
10. The Mummy
So much nostalgia.
I could go into it as I’m sure my followers know so I just won’t.
7. Sons of Anarchy
I don’t know what it is about SOA that I can just rewatch consistently but I do and often.
There is gratuitous sex and gratuitous violence, but it is also really funny and really intriguing and really suspenseful and entertaining.
Ok, so…. I have had time to sit and think about this little clip and…. I was watching it for about the 700th time and just look at how alnost shy he is?! I mean, we can safely say that this is probably the first time his lips have been on a womans skin since Maria. He first moves in so slowly, as if he is giving her the opportunity to pull away. And then his lips are so gentle on her cheek. So soft. He probably has forgotten what it even feels like to be gentle. And then he is pulling back, he’s looking everywhere but her. Down at the ground, back out across the water. He is nervous which is something that we don’t see from Frank. No, Castle has always been sure of himself. A brute and all consumed with his rage. This if new territory for Frank. Looking out across where he is standing and then the slightest flicker of his eyes to her; is he trying to read her reaction? He licks his lips, like he’s tasting her. And then it seems like it is ultimately shyness and awkwardness that has him walking away from her. He has to get away.
Kingsglaive AU: Everyone’s Alive and Nyx works as bodyguard for Luna on a daily basis.
Summary: Nyx meets one of his neighbors while he’s at the convenience store and things happened unexpectedly (lol sorry I suck at summaries, but please read the story)
Nyx was in the middle of putting
a bag of chips in his shopping basket when someone called him. He
couldn’t help but cringe when he heard the familiar voice. The only thing he
that could do was turn around and wear a fake smile.
“Hey, Mrs. Collins.” he
Mrs. Collins, a neighbor in
his apartment building, looked the same as always. White curly hair, short
built and wore glasses as thick as the bottom of a beer glass. She always
looked at him with some sort of a ‘eurika’ expression and the glaive knew
exactly why. The old woman approached with a silent glee while carrying a basket
full of her own things she had picked to buy.
“Oh my dear, it’s been a while
since I last saw you! How are you? You look a bit haggard! Have you been
sleeping?” Mrs. Collins exclaimed rapidly.
At least the motherly
questions made him smile genuinely. “I get enough sleep, Mrs. Collins,
don’t worry. I’m just assigned to more missions lately, that’s all.” he
“Ah yes! Being the best of the
Kingsglaive would make anyone busy.“ she complemented.
Nyx just reacted with a
“I rarely see you in the
morning nowadays.” the old woman continued. “Have you been assigned
to an earlier time as a guard in the palace?”
“Yes, I, uh, I’ve been
assigned to an earlier time.” Nyx said while he forced the smile to stay. He
always felt bad lying to the old lady, but it was better than admitting he had
been avoiding her. Still clueless to his discomfort, Mrs. Collins maintained
her excitable demeanor. She pushed up her glasses and moved closer with tiny
steps. Meanwhile, he mentally braced himself for the upcoming question he knew
all too well.
“Have you called Sharon yet?”
Sharon was first brought up
when the old lady found out that the hero of the Kingsglaive didn’t have a
girlfriend. And as old ladies would often do, she started mentioning the single
granddaughter and almost immediately begged him to go out with her. The old
woman had pestered him with it whenever they met and the glaive had always turn
the down the offer. Today was no exception.
“I didn’t have time. I’ve been
busy.” he excused as he scratched the back of his head.
Mrs. Collins frowned. “You
should call her soon! She’s perfect for you!”
He gave a nervous laugh. Maybe
the truth would make her stop once and for all.
“I’m sorry, Mrs. Collins.” he
sighed. “But I’m not interested.”
“Oh don’t be such heart
breaker.” She countered. So much for finally telling the truth. It seemed like
nothing would never make this old woman falter from ever pushing him. And with a
teasing tone she continued. “Don’t tell me you already have someone else.”
Another nervous laugh. There
was nothing he could do but to just continue turning her down as always without
hurting the grandmother’s heart too much.
“I’m afraid he has.”
Nyx turned to see the woman
who made the bold remark. The blonde woman stood at the end of the aisle with a
smile he recognized. She tilted her head slightly and looked at him with the
confidence that made him pay attention to her next move.
Luna approached the two
quickly and wrapped an arm onto Nyx’s before he could ever react. Mrs. Collins
looked at her from head to toe with her shaky fingers holding up the thick
spectacles. If the blonde before her wore the usual royal garb, she would fall
to her knees like anyone recognizing her. However, the Princess Oracle in a
casual coat and boots was effectively disguised to the old woman’s eyes.
Somehow, nobody seemed to recognize the princess as long as she wore casual
clothes. In fact, in the few months of her sneaking out at night with her
glaive escort, the disguise has never failed.
The grandmother looked at the
glaive and expressed a question with a face. Luna giggled and softly patted the
man on his broad chest. Nyx could only observe what was strangely happening
before his eyes.
“Oh Nyx, aren’t you going to
introduce me?” she uttered demurely.
And so he started to, but with
a slight arch on his brow. “Mrs. Collins this is –“
“Stella…” Luna finished as she
held out a hand, but then the cover name wasn’t the only thing she made up.
Nyx remained composed as he
tried to hold back a chuckle. “Yes.. my wife.” he introduced. He
felt warm saying the last two words. “And honey, this is Mrs. Collins - one of my neighbors at the apartment bulding.”
Mrs. Collins took Luna’s hand
and shook it as expected, but the old lady’s eyes widened. “Wife?” she uttered,
like she couldn’t believe what she was hearing or seeing.There was a hint of
disappointment on her face.
Luna smiled kindly. “Yes. We
got married just last month.”
Finally having caught on with
the cover, Nyx nodded before copying the princess’ smile. He put an arm around his
pretend wife to add effect.
Mrs. Collins looked at Luna
and then at Nyx. She gasped as if she was just realizing it the first time.
“Why didn’t you tell me you were married?“she croaked. “Oh you
didn’t even invite me to the wedding!”
“I apologize for that,
Mrs. Collins. It was just a small wedding and it happened so quick. We just
couldn’t invite everybody.” the glaive stated. He couldn’t believe he was
saying it all so smoothly.
Nevertheless, the old woman
formed a warm grin. “Oh don’t be sorry! You found yourself a beautiful
wife. And I can tell, you are very much in love.”
The faux couple gave an
“aww” look before a cheery smile appeared on their lips. Nyx couldn’t
help but hold Luna closer. And she reciprocated by giving him a peck on the
cheek. He felt her hand tremble slightly while she did so. But the nervousness
At the sight of them, The old
woman placed her frail hand to her chest. “Even though you missed a chance
with my Sharon, I am so glad to see you finally in love.” she commented,
even sounded genuinely.“I’ll leave you two then. I hope to meet you
“You too, Mrs.
Collins.” Nyx replied while he still held luna.
“It was nice to meet you,
Mrs. Collins.” Luna said warmly.
Mrs. Collins finally gave the
princess a soft pat on her arm. “Such a beautiful lady you have here, Nyx.
You are both so lucky.” she gushed.
Then finally the old woman
moved on to the cashier with those tiny steps of hers. The supposedly married couple
waved good bye at her. Only when her tiny frame disappeared from their sight
did they drop the act. He finally let go of her and she took a step back from
the intimate proximity.
The first thing that Nyx did
was laugh. Luna looked at him curiously. “What?” she asked.
“Nothing. I just can’t believe
we were able to pull that off.” he replied discreetly.
The princess shook her head. “Maybe
old ladies are easy to fool.” she stated with an equally hushed tone.
“I guess so.” he muttered. “But
I owe you one, your highness. It would take an hour or so before I get rid of
her, if you hadn’t come in.”
She hummed a note as she began
to look for the snacks she preferred among the ones display. “You don’t have to
owe me. You have saved me countless times from danger.”
“But that’s because it’s my
job to save you from danger.” he commented while he put another bag of chips on
Then something came to his mind. “I guess I’ll have to think of excuses for my wife being always out.” he said. “She’s my neighbor after all. She’s gonna wonder why Stella isn’t always at home.”
“Then I suggest you find another apartment.” she lightly suggested.
He gave a soft laugh. “Well, it’s better than finding a girl that looks exactly like you and is named Stella.”
The comment made her grin.
They went silent for a while
as they looked for more snacks to buy. Luna picked a small bag of biscuits and
placed them in the basket he held. She gazed at him with much of her notorious
“I wonder.” she started. “Why
don’t you go out with Sharon? As Mrs. Collins had put it, she’s perfect for
you. Well, she might be right.” Her teasing tone didn’t escape him.
“No can do, princess.” he answered
with a smirk. “Too busy with the job.”
The princess laughed as she
tugged his arm to drag him onto the next aisle. The glaive could only let her.
Somehow, he could never think about her soft touch the same way again since the
act they did together. It would always remind him of the moment he held her close as he would if she was indeed his wife…
… And how her lips felt on his
cheek… And how they might feel when touched by his own.
He suddenly stopped his
“What’s the matter?” the Luna
Nyx cleared his throat and
avoided looking into her blue eyes. “Nothing… Uh, Let’s just get those sodas.”
Again, he had to pretend. But
this time, he wasn’t so sure if he can still pull off another flawless act.
There are a lot of well-written, well-acted audio dramas with compelling characters and strong stories, ranging from sci fi to comedy to horror to drama. I couldn't possibly choose between all of these amazing options.
Ya kno there’s a difference between someone needing help and the damsel in distress right? Not every woman needing help onscreen is a damsel in distress, but there are alot of damsels in distresses so don’t act like people aren’t rightfully wary of the trope.
So I’m a writer, I’ve written fanfiction, I’ve written short stories, I’ve written poems, I’ve written scripts, I’ve done a lot of writing. I’ve done enough writing to know that what they’re doing on Supergirl this season, well let’s just say, it’s been missing a few marks. Look, I just have one question for the writers of this show, just one. What’s going on with you guys this season? I mean truly, what is going on? Last season was strong in character development, action, good storytelling, and it seems that a few of those things are lacking this season. Let’s start with a certain new character who goes by the name Mon-El. Now before I get started, I want to make one thing perfectly clear, I actually really like Mon-El, I am not even joking. I think he’s fun, he has a good sense of humor, Chris Wood is clearly having a blast playing him, and his positive attitude is freaking contagious. Yes he was a jackass in the beginning, but he’s coming around. Not only that, I think his story arc is really interesting, I’m curious to learn about his past, whether or not he’s the prince, and I’d actually like to see him develop his powers and become more like his comic book counterpart. However, all of this seems to be taking second banana to a romantic story arc that is forced, not entertaining, done with actors that have zero romantic chemistry, and something that literally a huge majority of the fans don’t want. But here’s my problem, with it. Well I have a lot of problems with it, but let’s just go with the basic. It lends absolutely nothing to the overall story. And as a writer, that really bugs me. You give us the potential for a fun and great character, a character who could actually have a future on these shows, and you turn him into the arrowverse equivalent of Mary-Jane from the Sam Rami Spider-Man movies. Oh that’s right, I went there. A romance based on some “Dude-bro” guilt tripping a girl into liking him is not only a terrible plot point, but a pointless one at that. Now on the other hand, maybe making them a non healthy relationship is the idea, which if that’s the case, ok, but you’re giving us no reason to think that. For example, in season six of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Buffy sleeping with Spike was purposely meant to be a destructive relationship. It was meant to show how Buffy hated being back on Earth and how she was using Spike to help quench these feelings. And it was very clearly meant to be non healthy. Here, it’s just “oh Kara’s friends are all abandoning her and she feels lonely (Which by the way, Alex ditching Kara on her birthday? Really guys? Really?) and Mon-El is the only one who is there to comfort her”, I mean give me a break. And as I stated before, Melissa and Chris have absolutely no romantic chemistry, they have great friendship chemistry, hell they even have a bit of sibling chemistry, but no romantic chemistry. Which brings us to another topic (yea you all knew this was coming), let’s discuss another new character who goes by the name Lena Luthor. Here is a character who is interesting, complex, well written, well acted, and who has flaming hot chemistry with Kara. Now please, writers, please explain to me why we can’t have Kara and Lena together? Cause of Alex and Maggie? It’d be too much to have two lesbian couples on one show? Come on, its 20freaking17. Same sex couples on tv shows are not as taboo as they used to be. Now one could make the argument that they’ve already had one coming out story, and two could be redundant, ok, a fair point. But remember what Mon-El said last episode? How Daxamites didn’t care about sexuality? Who says the same can’t be said for Kryptonians? Hell, you could just have Kara and Lena get together, and when she announces it, everyone being confused about her liking girls all of a sudden, that could actually be really funny. Or if you prefer the dramatic way, Kara being inspired by Alex to question her own sexuality as well could be good, as well as believable for Kara as a character, given the bond that her and Alex share. And I’m sure there are quite a few other ways you could do it. All I know is, it would probably be a lot better than the current romantic arc you have for her at the moment. Also, I don’t think we can talk about Lena without bringing up the giant elephant in the room that is the supposed “spoilers” for 2x15. I’m gonna be blunt, I don’t know if these rumors are true or not, but if they are, I got a few words. First of all, if Lena really does become a villain all of a sudden, it will just be plain stupid. Not only stupid, but lazy as well. If you write her entire arc on her trying to be better than her family name, and prove that not all Luthors are evil, then have her just become the villain randomly, that is not interesting character development. And I’m perfectly aware of the fact that it wouldn’t be the first time a good guy was really the villain the whole time in these shows. But here’s the thing (SPOILER ALERT for those of you who haven’t seen The Flash) Eobard Thawne and Hunter Zolomon were pretending to be people they weren’t (Harrison Welles and Jay Garrick), and they are established villains in the comics. Lena Luthor is not a villain in the comics. Nor was she in Smallville (SPOILER ALERT for those who haven’t seen Smallville). Yes for those who remember, Tess Mercer was in fact Lena Luthor. Now she was unbelievably shady and sinister as all get out, but in the end, she was still one the good guys, she was loyal to Clark and everybody to the very end. So making her a villain would not only be stupid and lazy, but it also wouldn’t make any sense. I also read somewhere that the idea of Kara and Mon-El is that they’re supposed to be “Star crossed lovers”, I’m sorry but nothing would be more star crossed than a Super and a Luthor, even you guys have to admit that. I’ll say this, there are only two ways I can think of, that maybe, just maybe, you can make Lena a villain to where we might buy it. You could either make her the villain for the rest of the season (which given the fact that Kevin Sorbo and Teri Hatcher are looking to be the villains this season, I doubt that’ll happen) or make her descent into villainy expand over the course of seasons, like Lex in Smallville or Morgana in Merlin. So basically, making her a villain and just killing her off would be one of the single most moronic moves you guys could even think of pulling. I’ve had people tell me that it’s not the writers jobs to please the fans, a notion to which I respectfully disagree. When the writers continually write what the majority of the fans don’t want, they will stop watching, the numbers will drop, and the show will get canceled. If they do give what the fans what they want, they will watch, the ratings will climb, the show will stay, and you will make money, it’s literally that simple. And you know what? The majority of the fans want Supercorp, I know there is a percentage that do want Karamel, and I don’t mean to sound like a prick, I really don’t, but Supercorp fans vastly outnumber Karamel fans, and the needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few. I hate to say it, but guys, if you look at the chart, it’s pretty clear. And like I said before, I don’t even know if these rumors are true. And if I’m wrong, cool, this post will be irrelevant. We’ll watch the show, peacefully, quietly, we’ll enjoy it. But if I’m right, you will not only lose respect from me as both a fan and as a writer, but you will lose respect from quite a large amount of fans as well. So please, we’re begging you here. These plot lines are a total mess and they are not hard to fix. Hell, why don’t you reach out to the fans for advice? I’ve seen plenty of fan fiction plot lines that are better than the current ones. I mean the fans already know what they want, giving it to them is not that complicated. I love Supergirl so much, it’s become one of my favorite tv shows ever, please don’t let some stupid, very easily avoidable, romance plot line ruin it. This has been an editorial from That Writer Guy. Hope you enjoyed.
this might’ve been the best episode so far. i loved so many things, it was so well-written and so well acted. i’ll probably just keep rewatching it for the next 3 months
MALEC SAID THEY LOVE EACH OTHER ACE RAPHAEL JACE SAVED SIMON (okay now that i got it out of my system, i can write sth more coherent and not just freak out but those moments were the best parts of this episode)
- magnus explaining the vision was just so amazing? honestly, what would they do without him?
- magnus feeling powerless… just please stab me in the heart it’ll
hurt less. we’ve seen this throughout the whole season and it only hurts
more and more. magnus can do so much yet in so many situations even his
best is not enough and you can see how much it affects him. he always wants to help, he needs to help. but sometimes there is nothing he could possibly do and it hurts him so much
- badass alec is my aesthetic ngl and telling victor that he’s not bad… for a diplomat
so happy alec called out victor on this whole situation. victor didn’t
tell izzy about the risks? sure, he might’ve mentioned something but he
didn’t say how exactly serious it is. and he cares about the downworld?
sure, he showed it when he was torturing raphael
- magnus and alec being worried about each other in this episode
shows just how truly they love each other. it’s not too soon, it’s the best
timing. they are always there for each other, trying to protect each
other. and when they were apart, all they could think of was if the
other one is okay. this is true love
- magnus felt so hurt and
betrayed when raphael was about to kill clary. raphael’s people were
stopping his hands so he couldn’t help her. seriously, just stab me in
the heart it’ll hurt less
- magnus was so gentle with madzie, trying to show her that he’s there
to help her. that he’s not the one lying to her. and when she came to
him because she trusted him… i wanna cry again. she met alec and
magnus once and she was ready to save their lives and trust them with
her own. she might be with catarina now but to me she’ll always be their
- alec was so terrified that magnus could be dead. the thought that he
could lose him was unbearable. he needs magnus so much, he loves magnus
so much. they both need each other. i’m so glad they found each other so they can make each other happy
- that whole malec reunion thing was the best scene in the history of television alec
desperately looking for magnus in the crowd, then the hug because they
just needed to make sure they are definitely okay. magnus explaining to
him that he wasn’t there. alec talking about his fear, how truly
terrified he was. magnus admitting how terrified he was as well. THE
LOVE DECLARATION WAS JUST SO BEAUTIFUL. the kiss. the forehead touching.
the second, even more desperate hug. they are so in love with each other, they can’t live without each other. and no matter how hard it may get, they means so much to each other. this is too much, i’ve cried for like 2,5h because of this and i still wanna cry some more
- jace saving simon JIMON CONFIRMED (fight me on this)
- i would’ve killed you i would’ve let you PLS STOP MY HEART CAN’T TAKE SO MUCH PAIN IN ONE GO
can we talk about how much jace sacrificed in this episode cause i am
not okay? first he saved simon which could pretty much kill him because
simon couldn’t stop himself from feeding. then he was ready to DIE because he
thought he could destroy the sword. and when he could finally have some
happiness back in his life, he decided not to tell clary she’s not his
sister because he thought she’d be happier with simon wow can someone just hug him and tell him how amazing he is? please
- jimon slaying together is my everything, they work so great together dom
and alberto have such an amazing chemistry on screen and i hope we’ll
get to see more of their scenes in 2b because every single scene in 2a
- jace facing his abuser and defeating him!
this is what i was waiting for
- simon trying to convince valentine… of course it was never going to
work but it shows how precious simon is. he’ll try anything just to save
clary and i just really love him
- daylighter simon! he was so happy, i’m so happy.
- CANONICALLY ACE RAPHAEL I AM LIVING THIS IS SO BEAUTIFUL
(yes, i’m mentioning it again cause i’m still so excited about this)
- luke telling jace about his parabatai bond with valentine. it
seriously broke my heart? only jace can understand how it must’ve felt
like. and luke is clearly trying to reassure him but the pain is still
so clear in his voice
- i get why luke tased maia. but it’s still
so not okay? he betrayed her or at least she feels like he did. and she
has every right to feel this way. she locked her up, even though he knew
she’s claustrophobic. and maia has a point, luke chose clary over the
pack so many times
- meliorn did warn luke and the plan did fail. this is gonna get so bad in 2b, isn’t it
(i really wanna be wrong about this)
- luke fighting with valentine and stopping him from using the sword. it’s the 2nd time when luke had to stop him from destroying the world. a person who he loved with his whole heart
- I AM SO IN LOVE WITH IZZY alec and victor thought that 4:2 was
kinda hard and then she came and absolutely destroyed those 4 people
while being incredibly weak because of yin fen. THIS IS WHY I LOVE IZZY,
she deserves the world
- izzy and alec are okay, this is everything i needed. it was so simple yet so important and victor seeing this whole scene and how much izzy was affected. i just hope he’ll realise how badly he fucked up
- but rizzy is dead so it’s a beautiful day
- clary… i have such mixed feelings about her? yes, she slayed and she
was a badass but she was also this little girl at the same time, always
thinking her way is the best way so everyone should just listen to her.
even if they’re more experienced than her
- madzie this is not how you treat your father! even though you saved his life but you should listen to him in the first place!
- madzie has been through so much because of this psycho. she’s killed
for him, she saw simon literally bleeding out in front of her. she’s just a child, i have no idea how she’ll deal with all of this. but i
realise that magnus made the best possible decision for her. being with
catarina might be the only thing that could help her and she’ll be
definitely safe with her
- i’m glad we finally got to see victor’s backstory. even
if he actually killed someone who he claimed he loved. i don’t know, it
just felt like he really wanted to convince alec that he could never be
with magnus and that’s just… no
- downworlders communicating with each other while making decisions,
downworlders fighting together side by side. THIS WAS SO BEAUTIFUL
(even if it didn’t end well…)
- i’m so so happy that dot is alive. and magnus taking care of her and making her feel better is my everything
- i just hate valentine SO MUCH? he’s been abusing and manipulating everyone in his path just to have it his own way. i just… i can’t stand him, i can’t even look at him
- valentine finally admitting that he’s not jace’s father is the only good thing that he did. at least incest is dead
- i’m so sad that alaric died, he really didn’t deserve this. he trusted luke, he wanted to make everything right and yet valentine still killed him
- and now sebastian is coming… this is bad. really bad.
It’s two in the morning, I have sudden strong feelings for my favourite pairing, and short, mindless DenNor comes as a result. Shameless self-indulgence and fluff ahoy!
Curled up together in the tangled sheets, Sigve’s hand traces his arm, the other clutching an unlit cigarette. They’re sweaty and sticky and still trying to catch their breath in the soft morning air- and, Søren decides, now’s the best time.
