Easily the best episode of the season. I loved Devoe’s entire back story, but there are few things I didn’t like:
Iris not believing Barry. She literally believed him when she said that man in lighting killed his mother, but she don’t believe this? That’s so dumb and OOC. Also, I know that Iris was chastising him out of love, but the writers constantly have her showing more understanding for that frosty ho that tried to murder her. I don’t know why the writers can’t be more consistent with her characterization, which brings me to my next point.
I love Iris, I really do. But over the past four seasons she lost a little bit of her zestiness that made me fall in love with her character. She was pragmatic, but still kinda bubbly. Idk why she seems to have matured sooooo much over three years. Maturation is good, but I think they’ve matured her a little tooo much (same goes for her physical appearance. She’s gorge, but I hate the matronly clothes, her hair.) I miss season 1 Iris. And seeing the little glimpse of her in tonight’s episode made me miss her even more.
The writers setting Iris up. She gets hate for existing, why do they keep having her say “we’re the flash.” I know, I know, they’re getting married, but dang. No, you’re not the flash. And the dumb fanboys are gonna remind you of that. It would have been a really cute moment for her to be like “I’m marrying the Flash” but whatevs.
The lack of intimacy. Yeah, we got more Westallen this episode, and my fangirl heart just SQUEALED when Barry was like he was the luckiest man alive, and when Iris talked about their future kids, etc. Those moments were golden, but I’m so tired of these third grade kisses. They’re getting married next week. Barry was gone for 6 gotdamn months, they should be all over each other, even within that Flash’s family show (bs excuse) rating. Like dang, let them makeout, and have a passionate kiss. I’m soooo tired of these lackluster kisses. Like if you’re gonna half ass it, just stop. Let them just say i love you from here on out. That’ll be just as unsatisfying for the viewers as those dry kisses.Last season (mainly the first half) their kisses were soooo much better. They legit act like they’re allergic to each other. But it’s not even the kisses. There aren’t enough cute, coupley moments between the.
Long story short, I think I Just want a show that just doesn’t exist anymore, and never will. :(
To those of you who didn’t know, my first blog on this site was mrhiddles years ago. My old art makes me want to go back to my old style a lot, though I’ve learned to make Loki’s forehead smaller these days. I will ALSO be making a new Thor/Loki comic soon to print and pre-order, so keep an eye out for that around early December.
Sormik week day 6! Woohoo! I’m back. No baby Sormiks this time, but have all the more fluff. This one is for @amarietie/ @tmariea for Storms in Our Blood. Today’s theme is “Lastonbell—Promises/Acceptance”, and although this scene indeed takes place in Elysia and has nothing to do with the Lastonbell promise, I figured the prompt was as good as any to do a marriage proposal. I… I went over the top with the cheesiness, didn’t I? *hides* The layers have fancy names to distract from the ridiculous romance going on here. Like “background panels”, background background”, “fucking rain”, “fucking lightning”, “rainy bits” and “rainy muchs”.
Anyway, I’m sorry this is so rushed, but I hope it gets the idea across just fine! I really really hope you like it, Mari! :,) This is my little thanks for your kind words and deeds for me, and for your Earth Armatus Rose occasionally saving my ass in ToLink, hoho. HAPPY SEVERAL MONTHS LATE BIRTHDAY OR SOMETHING
For everyone else: go read the story, it includes more artistic use of seraphic artes, and more kisses in the rain, if that doesn’t convince you I don’t know what to tell you
