One of the perks of spending a lot of time at the vet’s is that you learn names of a lot of animals, which for some reason feels really important. Chandler the dog, Reggie the cat, Ladybird the dog, and today I learned there’s also a dog by the name of The Mighty Thor. Not Thor, or Mighty Thor. The Mighty Thor. I haven’t seen him yet and I want to desperately.
hey holby i rlly love all these new additions and everything but like if you could focus on the characters you already have for a min that would be grand bc i’m beginning to think you’ve locked my son raffaello di lucca in a cupboard somewhere and forgotten to let him out
sana, my beautiful darling. she’s making these walls she’s learned to build up around her over the years even thicker, because of how much she’s been hurt lately. it’s too much, what she’s been through, in such a short amount of time, and you can tell just how…emotionally exhausting this has been for her. you can see it in her eyes. and she’s at a point where she can’t risk getting hurt more, so she’s closing herself off. building that though exterior. making herself look and sound though. and the saddest thing about this is that you get the feeling that she’s…given up. but can you even blame her? you can’t, not after everything that happened on may 12th. she is just so tired.
and now, she’s not letting herself feel, because not feeling at all is much better than risking getting her heart broken again, multiple times
Eric’s teammates are protective of their highly-publicized rookie. Maybe a little too protective. So, when a closeted!Jack gets flirty and starts flustering Eric on the ice, his Schooner teammates conclude that Zimmermann must be harassing Eric and decide to act accordingly. Leaping to Eric’s defense: starting goalie Markus Bay and defenseman Carter Morin.
(TW: hockey violence, little bit of blood, big ol’ misunderstandings)
“You seeing this?”
Morin slaps Markus on the shoulder and jerks a thumb toward Zimmermann, who is skating determined circles around Bittle. He stops stretching and watches the Falconers forward come close, say something to Eric, and skate away quickly. This happens twice, each time, Bittle flushes and looks upset, but seems to brush it off and go back to his warm-up drills.
“Do you know what he’s saying?” Markus asks, hoping for some kind of reasonable explaination.
“No, but, just watch, man.”
Zimmermann comes in close again, this time with Mashkov in tow, and Eric doesn’t flinch, but he does something, skating away quickly as the two Falconers laugh. Again, Bittle looks uncomfortable.
“Didn’t they play together?” Markus asks. “Why’s Zimmermann being a dick now?”
If the writers really wanted to, they would’ve found a way to make Peridot coming to the rescue mission work, because think about how interesting it would’ve been if Peridot came instead of Pearl!
We could’ve seen how she would’ve reacted to seeing her former leader, Yellow Diamond, being in such an emotional state regarding Pink Diamond! We could’ve seen the inner turmoil inside her; about how she still thinks about Homeworld and how conflicted she feels about going against everything she ever believed in, that she was literally made for, for the Crystal Gems! We could’ve seen how it became Peridot’s CHOICE (as opposed to initally being FORCED) to stay with the Crystal Gems OR, alternatively, have some foreshadowing of a future rift between the Crystal Gems and her, maybe even have her siding with Steven about being bent in learning the truth about Rose Quartz and what happened between her and Pink diamond!
We could’ve! Had so much character depth! with Peridot!!
