~the chemistry between these two is killing me

osnesqueen  asked:

Okay but my favourite thing about Jake and Amy is that even though season 1 brought us glorious episodes like "The Bet" and "Charges and Specs" that were clearly meant to move their relationship forward into *core relationship* territory it's never felt like a large set up to get us invested in a relationship that doesn't exist?? If that makes sense?? Like some shows push their leads SO HARD and you can ~feel~ the writers being like "YOU SHOULD WANT TO SHIP THIS" but Jake and Amy was just (1/2)

(2/) so organic?? I loved them as friends and partners first and right from the very beginning it was clear they were comfortable with each other and so them eventually falling in love was just so natural and idk how to explain it but I just?? even rewatching season 1 knowing where they end up it doesn’t feel forced at all, it just makes total sense and I’m so glad that it happened like that

like okay i’ve been!! talking about this for a while but i’m always down to be extra so i will talk about it again

it boils down to a few different factors, perhaps the most important of which is andy and melissa’s incredible acting chops and their own friendship. like honest 2 god u can be the best actor in the world but if u don’t like ur costar/character’s love interest u can only be so convincing. andy and melissa are genuinely friends, they hang out outside of filming for the show and they get along really well. that combined with their awesome individual acting abilities makes for a REALLY great television couple.

all of that to say that their chemistry makes for a very tangible kind of chemistry between jake and amy - starting from the very!! first!! scene!! we’re able to CLEARLY see the exact kind of friendship they have!! and listen my friends i am not going to lie, the fact that amy’s first words are “what are you doing, weirdo?” with an irritated look on my face immediately made me think oh no she’s the kill-joy the first time i watched the show but then!! then!! less than two minutes later!! jake starts talking to her through the nanny cam teddy bear and instead of being annoyed she gets that soft, affectionately exasperated look on her face and!! guys!! my literal thought was oh he must do this to her all the time

all of that in less than 2 minutes of screen time together!! and that idea - he must do this to her all the time - is reinforced every time they share the screen!! there are even a few early episodes where i wasn’t positive jake and amy were going to be a thing in canon - i knew i wanted them to be, but really honestly i couldn’t quite tell initially - and you’re right, that is so hard to do!! and ur right there are definitely shows where you know right away which couples are endgame and which ones you’re supposed to be cheering for, but with jake and amy - idk how to explain it, it just felt more…unpredictable. i was overinvested pretty much immediately

but yes, the thing that really gets me about jake/amy is that their relationship is not solely romantic - they’re friends. and u just don’t get that a lot in mass media

‘The Walking Dead’: Josh McDermitt says yes to Richonne and ‘Say Yes’

Every week, The Walking Deads very own Josh McDermitt, who plays Dr. Eugene Porter, is taking EW behind the scenes of the hit AMC horror series. For each episode, McDermitt will share his thoughts on what went down and what’s coming up, plus walk us through the ins and outs of the show. This week, McDermitt dives into the 12th episode of season 7, “Say Yes.”

The opening of “Say Yes,” last night’s episode of The Walking Dead got me really excited for some Rick (Andrew Lincoln) and Michonne (Danai Gurira) ass kicking and I certainly wasn’t disappointed. Thank you, Greg Nicotero, for directing an awesome episode.

Rick and Michonne looked like a S.W.A.T. team moving from house to house, location to location clearing and scavenging for supplies. And then of course, there was a bunch of love-making. I always felt like there would be more love-making in the apocalypse. With Glenn (Steven Yeun) and Maggie (Lauren Cohan) no more, who else should pick up the torch but two characters that seem to have been at odds from the very start of their relationship? I remember way back in season 3, in an episode called “Clear” (my favorite pre-Eugene episode BTW), Rick and Michonne go on a supply run and bump into a crazy version of Morgan (Lennie James). Even way back then, the tension between Rick and Michonne was thick and I remember hoping they would wind up together some day. Well they did. This was a slow burn. Scott M. Gimple wrote the episode “Clear” and I wonder if he was planting the seeds way back then for an epic payoff last night.

Rick and Michonne felt like an old married couple to me and I loved it. At one point, they fell through a roof and laughed about it. This episode at times seemed like a much needed break of fun from the terror and heartache we see most weeks. When they were backed up against the dumpster and deciding who should kill which walkers, Rick leaves her with eight. Eight? “You can handle eight…” was Rick’s response to her objection. The chemistry between these two was really evident in this episode so beautifully written by Matt Negrete. They’ve known each other a long time. Their relationship has a deep history and yet this is all so new between them. Michonne has the ability to be such a hard ass, someone you don’t want to mess with, and then she shows she can be so soft and delicate. The dynamics between the two of them were certainly fun to watch.

Michonne tells Rick, “It’s up to us to reorder the world once Negan (Josh McDermitt/Jeffrey Dean Morgan) is gone.” Rick is reluctant to take on that role. In fact, this whole episode, he’s reluctant to go back home so quickly. Perhaps because he knows what’s about to happen once they actually have to go to war. People will die. Or maybe because he’s able to take a break from being a leader and turn his body over to Michonne for some uninterrupted adult time.

Either way, I think the more logical reason is basically what he was explaining to Michonne at the end. He says he doesn’t want to lose anyone else. And they will. Maybe a lot of people. Maybe even each other. But even then, it’ll be worth it. Michonne says she can’t lose him. What kind of life would they have just surrendering? Making a future — that’s living. Rick is trying to convince Michonne that she can lose him because it’s not about them. It’s about the future. And she will have to pick up the torch and build that future. It’s such a great scene between them and I don’t like it because it sounds like Rick is saying goodbye to her. Eugene may be Negan now, but Josh still loves Rick.

In the end, “Richonne” are able to score a huge win and find a giant supply of guns. I mean, it looked like there was some heavy firepower in there. And they turn over the weapons to Jadis (Pollyanna MacIntosh) and the Scavengers, aka The Heapsters. I want to see a whole episode where Rick negotiates with Jadis. I love that he turned it on her and said, “Say yes,” the way she said that to him. How’s that taste, Jadis? BOOM!

Tara (Alanna Masterson) had a great scene with Baby Judith where she basically told her why she’s keeping the Oceanside community a secret. Week to week I would wonder why Tara wasn’t saying anything about the huge stash of guns at the little beach community. It can’t just be because she promised, right? Well, it’s obviously more than that. She kept that promise to Cindy not knowing that coming back to Alexandria would turn her life upside down. And the fact that Cindy saved Tara’s life means something now in this world of people only taking care of themselves. If Tara brings Rick to Oceanside, everyone is in for a world of hurt. She summed it up best by saying, “What makes our lives worth more than theirs?” She’s holding out hope that maybe Rick and the others could find some guns and another community doesn’t have to enter the fray. And it seems that’s where her hope lies at the moment… but at least there’s hope.

Quite possibly my favorite scene from last night’s episode was with Rosita (Christian Serratos) and Father Gabriel (Seth Gilliam). Rosita went out to find guns and didn’t find any. She came back and basically blames Father Gabriel for talking her out of being reckless with her actions. She said, “I had a gun. I was gonna use it.” And Gabriel smacks her back with some good, old-fashioned preacher wisdom. “It’s easier to be dead. If it’s my fault you’re alive then I’ll live with that. You can blame me for having a life, but after that? What are you gonna do with it?” That’s my line of the whole episode.

It was nice to be reminded of where Rosita is coming from with her anger… And where she’s going: Hilltop. Rosita goes to Hilltop to see Sasha (Sonequa Martin-Green). Oh, remember we’re not friends? Now we are? This should get juicy. But Rosita diffuses all of that by giving Sasha a sniper rifle. Rosita is frustrated with how things are moving back at Alexandria. “They need more guns, people, time, excuses.”

“This is a one-way ticket for both of us.”

Things are about to get crazy, I can feel it.

The Walking Dead airs Sundays at 9 p.m. on AMC.

I just realized something. NaruSaku shippers aren’t the worst thing to ever happen. I mean yeah, the ship is cancerous and the people who ship it are toxic fucking bullies, but I just realized that SNS shippers are exponentially worse. I mean I side ship this when I need a dose of yaoi, but these poor souls actually believed that SNS was going to be end game. Even worse they’re mad that it didn’t happen! I’m sorry (not really) but this is fucking hilarious.

First of all ‘Naruto’ is Shonen, primarily targeted at boys. Y'all HONESTLY thought the two main characters of a manga aimed at boys were going to end up in a gay relationship? Let’s ignore the fact that there’s no romantic chemistry OF ANY KIND between the two. Let’s ignore the fact that when they kissed by accident they were both repulsed by it. Let’s brush past the fact that Naruto has only ever shown affection to girls. Yeah let’s ignore all that.

And that’s not even the killing part. What kills me is that two men cannot be best friends without being shoved into a gay relationship. No, if two men are really close to each other they must want to fuck each other. I can’t speak for Sasuke, but lets just ignore the fact that Naruto is happily married with two kids. He’s just supposed to abandon his life and dream just to fulfill the delusional fantasies of people who can’t get out of their fanfictions? Ridiculous! I don’t give a fuck about Sasuke, Sakura, and whatever war SasuSaku, NaruSaku, and SNS shippers are in, y'all WILL NOT involve Naruto and Hinata in your trivial bullshit.

Edit: let me clarify on what I meant by trivial bullshit because my point is being missed entirely. When I said trivial, I didn’t mean the ships in general are trivial, I meant the shipping wars being by the shippers. For example: NaruSaku shippers fighting with SasuSaku shippers, and vice versa. And SNS shippers fighting with the other two. And how NaruHina and the people who ship it are brought into the crossfire when we had nothing to do with it.

I could feel that all eyes were on us. There was no empty seat left in the audience since the plays of our high school were famous in our little town. Because of the bright light of the spotlights it got quite warm on stage, but I’d do anything for theatre even kiss a guy I hardly knew.

I was wearing a white dress, my eyes were pressed shut and I pretended to be unconscious. Dan Howell had gotten the second lead role. We were a weird pairing. I was a geeky, smart and sometimes shy girl with a passion for Drama and English class and he was a quite handsome, popular guy with an interest in sports and girls. I didn’t even know he’s into drama, but he wasn’t bad at all. I could feel him move around me and then he sat down next to where I was lying.

“Here’s to my love! Thy drugs are quick. Thus with a kiss I die.” 

I could hear Dan solemnly exclaim shortly before his warm lips met mine. We hadn’t rehearsed the kiss before because our drama teacher wanted this important scene to be genuine and not a routine. I was honestly completely taken aback. Never before had a guy kissed me that intensively. I forgot that there was an audience watching us. My heart race sped up and I nearly kissed back before I remember that Juliet is unconscious in this scene. Sooner as I wanted him to Dan pulled away and acted out his death.

I had rosy cheeks for the rest of the play and when the curtains closed there was thunderous applause, people rose from their seats, and Dan’s friends loudly cheered.

“You were awesome, Y/N!” Dan complimented me as soon as we had rushed backstage, still filled with adrenaline.

“You totally killed it, Howell!” I shouted and seconds later he pulled me into a bone crushing hug.

We quickly broke apart when Mr. Scot, our drama teacher, headed towards us with a large grin of approval on his face.

“Bravo! I have never seen so much chemistry between two people on stage. And Mr. Howell that was one hell of a kiss.”

“Thank you, Sir.” Dan said as a blush crept onto his face.

“I’m really proud of you two. Can’t wait to do another play.” Mr Scot told us happily before he walked away again.

“It really was one hell of a kiss.” I couldn’t stop myself from admitting before it was too late and the words had already slipped out.

Suddenly there was a huge smirk on Dan’s face.

“Well, well Juliet I guess you have found your Romeo.” He cockily remarked, making my cheeks heat up to over a thousand degrees.

“Shut up.” I whined and rolled my eyes.

“O Romeo, O Romeo” Dan mocked me in a high- pitched voice, causing me to shake my head in embarrassment.

“Stop it, Howell.” I shouted at him and hit his chest playfully.

“I’m not this ‘Howell’ you are speaking of. I’m Romeo Montague and Juliet is the sun.”  

I just groaned instead of answering and proceeded to walk away.

“Y/N- I mean Juliet, wait! I know we are different and our parents may not agree, mine really don’t care actually so don’t worry, but I’d really love to give this story a happy ending and take you out.”  

That’s how me and Dan got together. We had our first kiss on stage and went on a couple of dates after that. He asked me to be his girlfriend with another Romeo and Juliet reference and I just couldn’t say no. At first it was bit weird for both of us because we were so different and had such a different group of friends, but we all got used to it.

Exactly a year after the famous performance that brought us together Mr. Scot asked us to play the lead roles for his next project. Theatre and our love for drama class were basically the only things that me and Dan had in common so we obviously agreed to our teacher’s offer.

“What are we gonna put on stage Mr. Scot?” Dan asked as soon as we walked into the room where we had our first rehearsal.

“Well, Mr. Howell let’s just hope you can sing.”

“A musical?!” Dan exclaimed in surprise and shock.

“Not just any musical, Daniel.”

It took a bit of convincing from my side to make Dan sing, but he eventually agreed to it for me.

[After rehearsal]

“I still can’t believe you got me to do this.” Dan laughed, shaking his head.

“You sounded awesome, baby.” I smiled at him and took his hand in mine.

When we reached the parking lot it was already dark outside and the streetlamps were on.

“Do you still have time to come over today?” I asked Dan, wanting to spend some more time with him.

“Sorry, I can’t.”

The last time we got to hang out together was more than two weeks ago. I missed our alone time but Dan was always busy. He made it onto our high school’s soccer (football) team this year so he had after school practices and he still needed to do school work and spend time with his friends and teammates. I mean, I could understand that he had a lot to do, but I also felt a bit neglected.    

When I arrived at school the next day I walked straight up to Dan’s locker like I did every morning. Normally he’d be waiting for me there so we could go to class together but today he was surrounded by some of his jock friends. Just as I had decided to walk past them Dan called me.

“Hey, babe. C’mon over.” I swallowed hard as I did what he told me.

“Dude, is that your girl?” One of his friends asked, eyeing me up and down.

Dan nodded proudly and smirked as he wrapped his arm around my waist.”

“She is hot.” The same guy commented, ignoring the fact that I was right in front of him.

“Mr. Scot actually asked me to be in one of stupid plays today. I’d rather vomit all of my guts out and die.” Another one of Dan’s teammates told us and started laughing. Everybody joined in except for me. I just watched Dan laugh at the only thing that we both loved and didn’t know the guy who stood next to me anymore.

 I gotta say what’s on my mind

Something about us

Doesn’t seem right these days

Life keeps getting in the way

Whenever we try, somehow the plan

Is always rearranged

I’ve go to move on and be who I am

I just don’t belong here, I hope you understand

“CUT! Okay Y/N that was perfect, but sadly we are out of time for today. We’ll do the rest of the break up scene tomorrow.”  

“You never told me that you have such a lovely voice, baby.” Dan complimented me with a sweet smile on the way out.

After we had reached the parking lot once again the words I had to sing were still stuck in my head. I realized that I had already made my decision.

“Dan, before you head home, I need to talk to you. I have never identified with a role that much, you know? Lately, you haven’t been yourself anymore and that’s okay. I understand that people change, but I think we both can relate to what I just had to sing. We are not working anymore.” I had to try really hard not to cry and break down in front of him. I stopped talking before my voice got too shaky.

“Y/N, you can’t be serious! I-I -babe, I love you! Dan stuttered heartbroken, looking at me with wide eyes.

“Dan, it’s not that I don’t love you anymore. I just think it’s easier for us this way.”

“What fucking way is this supposed to be?” he shouted as he ran his hand through his hair in frustration.

“This here is easier than slowly getting my heart ripped out by you! I felt like you didn’t care for me at all the last couple weeks. You just hang out with your friends and make stupid jokes. I don’t even know you anymore, okay. Actually, you haven’t told me you love me in months, only now that it’s too late!”

“But you always knew that I loved you, right?” Dan asked me softly, his voice breaking mid-sentence.

I couldn’t stop myself from bursting into tears anymore. I just shook my head at his words since my voice had let me down.

[…]

 After Dan and I’s emotional break up things went back to how they were before we started dating. I only hung out with my geek friends and he joined the jocks and popular kids. We only saw each other during the rehearsal for our play and we didn’t talk more than we needed to there. From what I could tell, I could say that we were both not doing that great without each other. I remembered how happy I was during the heydays of our relationship and felt dull inside. The ugly truth though was that I was already miserable before we broke up. Still, I couldn’t help myself from looking forward to every single rehearsal we had, just because I was able to see Dan there. I knew that it was wrong but I guess I still had feelings for him. So, on the day of our grand debut I was extremely excited but also sad because I wouldn’t get to see Dan anymore.

When I got on stage I quickly scanned the audience and spotted not only my parents but also Dan’s jock friends. They sat in the last row and stared at us impressed. They gave Dan the thumbs up to cheer him on. We started acting, we had to portray a happy couple just like the one we were once. Half way through our performance it was time for our break up scene.

I’ve got to move on and be who I am

I just don’t belong here, I hope you understand

We might find a place in this world someday

But at least for now, I gotta go my own way

I sang, trying to ignore how nervous I was and how emotional I got. Having to look Dan straight into his beautiful brown eyes broke my heart all over again. I was glad when Dan had to take over because I knew that my voice would let me down soon.

What about us?

What about everything we’ve been through?

What about trust?

You know I never wanted to crush you-

As Dan sang there were tears glistening in his eyes and I knew for a fact that he wasn’t acting.

“I can’t do this.” Dan admitted with watery eyes right before he rushed backstage. The audience gasped loudly. I quickly followed him just to find him full on crying in his dressing room. Tears blurred his vision as silent sobs left his mouth.

“I’m so sorry.” He wept bitterly, avoiding to look at me. “I just couldn’t sing this song and look at you anymore, knowing that I was stupid enough to let you go.”

I sat down on the floor next to him and took his shaking hands in mine.

“Dan, I’m the one who is sorry.” I whispered, staring at my feet.

“What are you sorry for?” he asked me unbelievingly in between snivels.

“I’m sorry for putting you through this and breaking up with you.” I admitted.

“No, you were totally right, Y/N. I was acting like a dick and I took you for granted. Right after you broke up with me I told all of my friends that I’m doing this play and they are even here today. I just wanted to fit in and that was a stupid idea. You are more worth then being on the soccer team, or being popular. Y/N you are worth more than anything I can think of.”  

“Breaking up with you was a stupid idea.” I admitted and laughed a little as I watched Dan’s eyes widen.

“What- Are you playing with me because I think I might be having a heart attack right now?” Dan looked like he couldn’t believe his ears.

“You know that in the play our roles get back together, right?” I grinned before I finally kissed him again.

Winter Formal - Garrett Imagine

You groaned in front of your locker after witnessing another winter formal grand proposal in the hallway that involved balloons, streamers, and glitter. After seeing an organized flash mob that involved the football team in the quad for the head cheerleader during lunch, you were ready to snap if you saw one more grand gesture. You wanted to scream so badly but that would set off certain people. Of course, it would catch everyone’s attention but only a handful would find it as a warning, a trouble of some sort, or a death warning. 

The problem wasn’t the general idea of winter formal. You wanted to go. You wanted to be asked in a special way and get dressed up in a dress you’d only wear one night. You wanted to keep the corsage in a box of memories in the back of your closet, create memories with your friends, and capture them in photos you’d keep forever. You wanted to dance the night the away under the stars with the boy you loved. That was the problem. The one person you wanted to ask you to winter formal and go with is the one guy you’re not allowed to go near, Garrett. 

“Guess who just got asked to Winter Formal?!” Kira cheerfully asked with a handful of pink and white balloons in her hand, and a picture perfect smile on her pretty face. That’s it! You thought to yourself. Inside your locker you grabbed a pencil from your magnetic pencil holder, and stabbed a balloon, making a loud pop noise.

“Bite me!” You said angrily to Kira and walked away.

Garrett was a touchy topic with the pack. No one knew how you felt about him. You two were chemistry lab partners. The kind of lab partners teachers regret putting together after realizing how loud the pair was, as they always laughed, joked, smiled, and flirted between the eyes. Except nothing more happened, or rather nothing more could happen between the two of you. Garrett was an assassin, who kills supernatural creatures, and sooner or later he’ll go after Scott’s pack, a pack you were a part of. 

After lashing out on Kira, you decided to skip your last class, chemistry. You were tired of all the winter formal talk and the last thing you wanted was the constant reminder of not getting to share at least one dance with the boy sitting next to you.

You walked right by the chemistry classroom door, down the hallway, and bumped into someone before reaching the double doors that led to the parking lot. The clash knocked down your school bag and papers flew everywhere. You sighed in frustration and kneeled down to pick up your school stuff without looking at the klutz that walked into you.

“Whoa! I didn’t see you, Y/N. Where are you off in such a hurry?” You recognized the voice, making your heart skip a beat. You looked up to see your favorite pair of blue eyes. “Chemistry is that way,” he gestured with his index finger.

Some of my favorite dramas of 2015

My top 5 dramas from 2015 ^_^ (in order of when it aired)

1.  Pinocchio- Most of the episodes for this drama aired in 2014 but it ended in 2015 so I ended up putting it on this list instead of last years. I love the leads and everything about this drama. I feel like this was the better version of Heirs in the sense it was made up of great cast and crew with a lot of potential and unlike Heirs Pinocchio was a success. 

2. Kill Me Heal Me- This was one of the first dramas to air in 2015 and let me just say dramaland had a great start in 2015 with this master piece. Not only did I love the Oh siblings but Ji Sung did a phenomenal  job of playing 7 different parts. Hands down one of the best dramas with some of the best I’ve ever seen. This drama aired same time as Hyun Bin’s drama with a similar plot line and I first started watching Hyde Jekyll Me because of Hyun Bin but I soon lost interest and tried Kill Me Heal Me. Let me just say I fell in love after the first couple of episodes. 

3. High Society- This was a nice surprise. It was like Marriage not Dating from last year, I don’t think either of the dramas had a big following but I loved watching them both. I wasn’t a big fan of Sung Joo first drama in 2015 (Hyde Jekyll Me) but High Society made up for it ^_^

4.Sassy Go Go- I actually binged watched this drama after it aired. I’ve seen most of EunJi’s dramas and I just love seeing her playing a student. Her character in Sassy Go Go reminded me of Reply 1997, both a must watch. 

5. She was Pretty-  I started the year with Jung-Eum and Seo-Joon and also ended they year with these two. I have to admit the chemistry between these two actors is amazing and its very rare. I wouldn’t mind seeing them in another drama ^_^ Loved the leads as well as the supporting leads. Si-Won also did a great job in his role right before enlisting into the army. 

What made it to your list? ^_^ 

Check out  my list for 2014 

Never 'Ship Alone... The Importance of Tumblr

I shipped Mulder and Scully from X-Files so hard in my youth. Lol. I would be so frustrated not seeing more than a peck or those glances that they shared. I shipped in silence because 1.) I’m black, lol and 2.) Not many black people I knew watched The X-Files. So every week I would squee in silence waiting for the magical moments Chris Carter would give me. Only Hardcore fans would experience the season 9 kiss, which felt entirely too late(although they’ve kissed before, 6x3 Triangle, this was the first romantic kiss I got to enjoy over and over again). So imagine when I fell in love with The Walking Dead and season 3 roles around. I started reading the comics and knew Michonne and Rick were best friends(they have great chemistry in the comics as well). On the show however, they are magical. So I hit another wall. Do I want to ship them? Do I want to invest the time in this alone? Yep. Again, I shipped in silence because, 1.) At the time not many people watched TWD that I knew of, 2.) Selling people on their chemistry was difficult.

So I kept it to myself. Everytime Rick would look Michonne up and down, or kick everyone out the prison except her, I knew it was more. I just knew. Lori had just died and he was still grieving so I wasn’t expecting much, but damn it….he liked Michonne. If Rick stared at me like he stares at her, I’m dropping my panties- No. Questions. Asked. 😂😂😂😎. When Norman Reedus said on TTD that he saw them flirt in the season 3 finale, I died. Died I tell you. I finally was like, yes someone sees it. It’s not just me being a hopeless romantic for my fave two characters of the series.

The show got more popular and everyone talked about the killing and crazy stories(myself included), but no one would talk about these intimate moments. My only saving grace had been Yvette Nicole Brown…my shipping captain. That episode of TTD when Chris Hardwick said he saw chemistry between Jessick, YNB and myself wanted to throw up. In a way, I never worried about The Jessick angle. I knew her and her clan died in the comics, and when I saw them in 6x8 walking hand and hand and Carl was near Jessie, I kept telling my mom(who I got hooked on the show), that she was gonna die in the next episode. I knew Rick would chop her arm off to save Carl. So I just dealt with that story line. (I was very proud I called that one…lol).

Then 6x10 happened and I literally died. I’m still dead. It was a big deal for me. Then I noticed the hate my OTP were getting on Facebook and decided to keep my joy to myself. My boss was like, I dont understand how they just put them together. I had to give a dissertation to my boss y'all…lol. Gave her episodes she needed to re-watch…ha!

If people stopped complaining about the pacing, actually listened to the characters during slower episodes, and not concentrate on the deaths (which are awesome), well you would have seen it imo.

I discovered Tumblr about a month ago(this was in October, 2016) and have gone to shipping heaven. I never realized how many people live for my OTP. The Richonne community is so awesome and sticks up for our pairing and I’m so grateful. I get to die with y'all and take this shipping journey together out in the open. Loud and proud.

Thanks Tumblr, because of you I no longer ship in silence. Cheers shippers!

I’m usually not a shipper but honestly, Mino’s and Taehyun’s (Winner) chemistry is absolutely amazing. When these two are together there is really elecricity between them and their song “Pricked” gave me so much feels. I still hope for a live performance because they would totally kill it. I definitely unterstand why “Namsong” has so many fans and, yes, I can imagine them dating even though I know it’s not true. They just work so well together.

Westallen cuteness in 2x09!

They were so damn adorable and sweet together in the Flash mid-season finale. Their emotional scenes were all so amazing, even better than last year’s mid-season finale. I missed Grant and Candice’s interaction so much this year and I’m so glad we finally got a bit of an explanation for why Iris had been ducking Barry this whole time. She was angry about the whole keeping a secret identity thing. I want to see more scenes between these two I’m sick of all this boring Patty/Barry crap. She’s a horrible person who likes to shoot people and nearly kill in cold blood. I want someone to tell Barry that she tried to kill Wells! WHY IS TEAM FLASH KEEPING THAT FROM HIM?!?

Anyway back to Westallen, this episode reminded me again of why I adore them so much. I love their chemistry, their sweetness and the way they comfort each other when things are at their worst. I wish we could continue to see Barry and Iris grow closer into something more because if this episode was any indication its that Iris is fighting really hard to suppress her feelings for Barry. Its so obvious in her eyes which hold so much sadness even through her smiles and the way she says “I’m happy for you” referring to him and Patty. Ugh writers please allow these two to interact more its killing me with how much angst you’re throwing at them with no pay off. 

I loved when they held each other watching the snow fall it was beautiful. And then Westallen sassing Captain Cold was so great lol! Why can’t we have more nice things like this on the show its not fair :( I’ve been missing Barry and Iris’s relationship so much and this episode felt a lot like what we used to get between them in S1 it’s actually sad when I think of it. Also I LOVED the introduction of Wally West, that was a fantastic acting moment between all four of the main actors ^__^ I got teary eye watching Iris and Joe reunite with Wally for the first time T__T It reminded me of when Oliver reunited with his son!

Oh and speaking of Captain Cold/Leonard Snart I’m really loving his growing respect and twisted care for Barry. He protected him even if it wasn’t much Leonard still went out of his way to warn Barry. The Coldflash *feels* were strong in this episode! Grant and Wentworth are just so damn amazing together, such a beautiful parallel to the Oliver Queen/Malcolm Merlyn relationship. 

P.S Iris bless your little heart for that Olivarry reference at the beginning when you mentioned you were searching for BOTH a Flash and Green Arrow doll as a package deal ^__^ So does this mean Barry told Iris who Oliver is?! ^__^

On that note I didn’t appreciate Joe’s “crazy man” remark mocking Oliver’s friggin PTSD. I wish the Flash writers would STOP trashing Oliver and Arrow like this on The Flash series. Its disgusting, petty. childish and its only making me resent this show more and more. Most of the characters have become unlikable to me because of this sh*t. Its very disheartening as a fan of Arrow for me to watch this other series I enjoy trashing a series I love. The Flash is going to start losing viewers and fans at this rate if they keep it up. Without Arrow THERE WOULD BE NO FLASH SERIES just remember that! 

To all the people craving GREAT queer representation AND at the same time be supported by the writers and actors, please do yourself a favor and watch Person of Interest.

I am practically in all the f/f fandoms and I can guarantee that there is no other show right now that supports f/f ships like Person of Interest.

Sarah Shahi (Shaw) and Amy Acker (Root) are the only two female main characters of the show. They are not sexualized They are not treated as inferior to the men, they are in equal grounds sometimes even stronger than the two male leads. They both kick ass. Both characters are incredibly complex WITH an amazing backstory that does not surround around explaining why they do what they do. No, these two have killed tons of people and Root is not damaged from a childhood trauma “My mom told me to follow my talents and so I did” her talents are hacking, taking new identities and killing people lol. Shaw is a self diagnosed sociopath and guess what? That does not define her character. They don’t treat it as big issue, she simply is.

Now, on most TV Shows these characters would be romantically paired up with the two male leads, but no, instead they are IN CANON romantically paired up with each other.

Have in mind that this relationship was not intentional. The writers simply saw the chemistry between Amy and Sarah and went with it. They go with what works instead of ignoring the life the story took on its own. Most shows ignore it and keep with what they always had in mind.

Amy Acker and Sarah Shahi are the biggest Shoot shippers. They supported this ship even before it became canon. Have I mentioned THAT ITS CANON????

This show is not given the credit it deserves.

It has the best female characters EVER and their story does not surround the male leads.

Plus, the queer representation is amazing considering all the support the ship has gotten from the people involved in it and the depth that the writers were willing to go with.

Just do yourself a favor and watch Person of Interest.

vampiresandwhitewalkers  asked:

Hello :) Since you watched TO before you watched TVD, I was wondering if your opinion of TO changed after you got a taste of the Original family in its entirety from TVD? Do you still find the show as enjoyable now that you have TVD to compare it to and what about Klaus' love interests? Give me a full on analysis - love interests, plots, the Original family from TVD vs TO. Give me as long or short of a reply as you wish :) Thanks!

vampiresandwhitewalkers SOOO glad someone has asked me this, I think I’m the perfect focus group, given I watched The Originals prior to The Vampire Diaries. 

So here we go…  The Mikaelsons: The Vampire Diaries vs. The Originals…

Eliza: “she’s gone bat shot crazy … it’s very unClarkelike”

Ricky: ”I think we’re all molded by  our experiences. The good thing about Lincoln is that his moral compass has never changed.”

Eliza: "Bellamy will come out on top.”

Isaiah: “Everyone has blood on their hands thinking they’re doing something for the greater good.”

Marie: “playing a kick-ass warrior woman was so much fun to play.”

Lindsey: "Raven’s gonna come out on top." she’s still dealing with Finn’s death and now has Wick by her side.

Lindsey: “Season 3 is going to be awesome for Raven because you’re going to see the ramifications from the previous seasons”

Lindsey: “You’re going to see a new Raven because she’s changed by everything she went through. She’s trying to rebuild herself.”

Ricky: "There are no good or bad people, there’s only perspective.”

Jason: “We’re going to dive deeply into the Grounder world, and clans, and how commanders are created.”

Bob:  “Bellamy doesn’t trust himself to [be a leader] without Clarke, and he needs her in that way.”

Jason: “Doing an opening credits is courageous because it cuts 30 seconds of time from the episode.”

Jason: “There’s lots of chemistry between Clarke and Bellamy.”

Eliza: “The emotional toll of shooting the finale was hectic.”

this contagious chemistry is killing me - luke hemmings au

summary:
“Yeah, biology isn’t my strong point. I do know a thing or two about chemistry though.”


I rushed into the room, already ten minutes late for my last class of the day. My panic was quickly relieved though as I saw everyone standing up in a ring around the desks. I supressed a groan as I pushed my way in between two people. If everyone was standing up it meant that we were being assigned new lab partners.

The idea had come to our teacher one day when he realised that a lot of the people in our class didn’t get along well with one another. The obvious solution to that apparently was to change our partners every few weeks so that we had to work together. I didn’t understand the logic really; the majority of us had been going to school together for five years, if we hadn’t learned to like each other by now then it was never going to happen.

“Miss Morrison, I don’t remember seeing you here before.” I looked up and tried my best to give Mr. Randalls a convincing smile.

It didn’t appear to be working because the old man had an eye brow raised from behind his thick glasses and his face was set into a scowl. Saying that Mr. Randalls didn’t like me was probably an understatement; I may have accidentally lit his lab coat on fire in the eighth grade, but he really needed to move on.

“Sir, Skye’s been here the whole time; we came in together.” I looked to my left to see none other than Luke Hemmings covering for me.

anonymous asked:

This a silly question but as an Olicity and Westallen shipper I'm curious to know what made you start shipping them and even sillier, when was the moment you felt that both were endgame?

Oh this is not a silly question at all anon IMO I’d be happy to explain why I love my ships! I love talking about Olicity and WestAllen ^__^

Olicity:

I have LOVED their interaction since 1x03. Felicity was so adorable and awkward chewing on her pen then along comes the handsome yet badass powerhouse Oliver Queen in all his damn glory with a broken laptop and they just clicked in their scenes together. From that point on I couldn’t wait for more scenes between them. The episode that really made me start shipping them was 1x12 where Felicity asked if she could trust Oliver and then showed him the list of names she’d been working on for his stepfather Walter. I just loved it because it was the first emotional but light scene they did together; Oliver sitting at the window watching the rain and then Felicity walks by the window :) THE MOMENT WHERE HE TELLS HER SHE CAN TALK TO HIM ABOUT HER DAY AND WHEN HE WISHED HER “HAPPY HANUKKAH” AFTER TELLING HER SHE WAS “REMARKABLE”!!!!!!!! Then of course I loved the episode where Felicity finally learns Oliver’s secret and has to help Diggle save him after being shot by his mother [that beginning scene where he was in her car was hilarious LOL]. AND DO I EVEN NEED TO TALK ABOUT THE SEXY SALMON LADDER MOMENTS BETWEEN THESE TWO WHERE FELICITY IS JUST DISTRACTED BY OLIVER’S ABS?!?!?

Some of my favorite Olicity moments came in 1x21 where Felicity went undercover as a card-sharp and then in 1x22 where Oliver, Felicity and Diggle got to play Mission Impossible at Merlyn Global because those episodes really highlighted how incredibly sexy Stephen and Emily could be with each other onscreen, especially when Felicity swung from the rafters in Oliver’s arms *SQUEEE* I just thought they were so hot in that moment. I also liked their development in season 2, their arc together was just awesome. The premiere episode where Oliver saves Felicity from a landmine and winds up ON TOP OF HER SHIRTLESS [it was like they were having sex!!]! 2x07 stands out as being one of my favorite episodes where Oliver saves Felicity because not only did we get some fantastic emotional moments between those two [and it was the first time Oliver realized he had feelings for Felicity] but THE EYE SEX OMFG EVERY SINGLE FRIGGIN TIME!! All Stephen has to do is look at Emily and I turn into a friggin puddle. I wish a man would look at me as intensely affectionate as the way Oliver looks at Felicity. I swear to god it almost makes me want to ship the actors themselves lol!

Other favorite Olicity moments includes the Barry Allen episodes 2x08 and 2x09 because I just loved how friggin hubby and wifey Oliver and Felicity were with each other; actually those episodes were my favorite of that season! THE EPISODE WHERE HE TELLS HER SHE IS HIS GIRL AFTER SHE GETS SHOT AND CUPS HER FACES WITH HIS HAND!!!!!!! And I also loved 2x21 the Olicity/Diggle scene was so emotional and well acted by all three actors. Loved the way it seemed like Stephen was going to turn to kiss Emily’s Felicity goodbye based on how they were looking at each other ugh! The car accident where Oliver carries Felicity in his arms, the clock tower scene where Felicity tells Oliver she believes in him and they embrace like lovers and how could I forget the moment he tells her he loves her for the first time?!?! I squealed like an idiot when that happened and wanted them to kiss soooooooo bad! Luckily we got that kiss in 3x01 which was Olicity heaven until the sad ending of course :(

Overall what makes me ship them is obviously the friggin AWESOME AND EXPLOSIVE chemistry between Stephen Amell and Emily Bett Rickards. They are so friggin HOT together, its like sex whatever they do together onscreen! I don’t know what it is they just gel maybe part of it comes from [dare I say] the Canadian vibe?? Either way its sexy as hell and its just killing me that Oliver and Felicity STILL aren’t officially a couple T__T Forgot to add the best part DIGGLE SHIPS OLICITY BIG TIME AND ITS ADORABLY HILARIOUS!!!!!!

WestAllen:

What can I say about this precious gem of a pairing?! I knew about their comic canon Epic love story before the show aired but I fell in love these two since they came out of the gate in the pilot episode. They were just adorable and hilarious teasing each other, looking at each other like a happily married couple. The moment that made me ship them like crazy was their reunion scene at Jitters after Barry woke up from his coma. It was just so beautiful the way she runs and jumps into his arms like lovers who’d been tragically separated. So well acted by Grant and Candice, I literally felt their connection throughout that episode. Then their dynamic just got cuter and cuter as the episodes went on. And even though Iris is dating that bum Eddie, the entire time SHE AND BARRY ARE MAKING LOVELY HEART EYES AT EACH OTHER WHICH JUST MAKES MY SHIPPER HEART GO CRAZY!!!!!!

1x04 despite Felicity’s visit this was actually a really sweet episode for WestAllen and surprisingly Olicity. I think this is where I noticed that Iris actually has hidden feelings for Barry the way she kept encouraging him to go for Felicity. And I die happily inside EVERY TIME SHE TELLS HIM WHAT AN AMAZING PERSON HE IS AND THAT SHE THINKS HE’S AN ADORABLE NERD!!!!! It’s like girl wake up he’s your true love LOL! It’s almost maddening that she doesn’t realize how much Barry adores her and worships the ground she walks on!! Don’t even get me started on the sex-without-contact scene on the roof in 1x05 OMFG this was the very first time we got a glimpse to how sexy and passionate Grant and Candice could be together and it was sizzling hot!! It was like an early peek at whats ahead for this ship and all I could do scream with excitement. Their emotional scenes [like the breakup] were also incredibly moving to watch, I had tears in my eyes when Iris cried over Barry at the end :(( It also helps that like Stephen and Emily, Grant Gustin and Candice Patton are also blessed with DYNAMITE chemistry its magical whatever they do and its all in the ENDLESS EYE SEX AND CONSTANT FLIRTING!!!!!!

As the episodes go on WestAllen just keeps stealing my heart, like when Barry ran faster than the speed of sound to save Iris from Tony in 1x06, how hubby and wifey they were with each other in 1x07; when Iris gave stressed out Barry a neck rub, they both got upset over Barry’s mug getting smashed by Joe and when Barry ran to the police station to check on her after getting his powers back UGH! Their meetings as Iris and The Flash are also friggin hot because there’s no awkwardness between them like “the friend zone” holding back the obvious sparks between them. IMO its only a matter of time before Iris closes the door on Eddie for good which I’m looking forward to ^__^ I’m also extremely thrilled that JOE SHIPS WESTALLEN!! And then of course the EXCITING FLARROW EVENT!!!!!!!! Ugh the magic of Olicity and WestAllen together in not one but TWO scenes; the first one where Iris got “Queen’d” by Oliver made me friggin laugh my a** off LOL!!!! Especially when she told the obviously jealous Barry about her 3-list [a list of guys to cheat on Eddie with which Oliver was on] lmao!! 

I was absolutely devastated by WestAllen’s second breakup [AND THEY AREN’T EVEN TOGETHER!!] but honestly I’m looking forward to the angst. They need to come into their own individually before they can ever be together WHICH I CAN’T WAIT FOR but like Olicity they are on slowburn and obviously they will eventually become my second ship of pain T__T I’M ALSO DYING FOR IRIS TO LEARN BOTH OF BARRY’S SECRETS UGH TUESDAY CAN’T COME ANY SOONER!! 

 And finally you asked why I think Olicity and WestAllen are Arrow and The Flash’s planned endgames? Well aside from WestAllen’s over 40 years of DC comic book canon royalty and Olicity’s fan favorite status [and the chemistry between all the actors] I believe wholly they’re indeed endgame based on what I’ve seen so far on both shows. HOWEVER…

…I think the moment the show creators highlighted both these couples in one scene within their BIGGEST episode EVER which was the FLARROW Crossover Event, that pretty much solidified to me that the writers plan on both an Olicity and WestAllen happily ever after ^__^

**Requested**

It was one of those dark days where all you wanted to do was wrap yourself in blankets, eat spoonfuls of Nutella and watch reruns of 80s movies. With all the dark clouds and forecasted thunder storms, Luke suggested you come over before the heavy rain hit so that you two could spend the rainy day in each other’s company. Just as you were about to ring his door bell, your lanky blonde boyfriend was already swinging the door open and engulfing you in a warm hug. He took in a breath and whispered warmly in your ear.

“God, Y/N, you look hot sweatpants.”

You let out a laugh and broke away from the hug to peck his sweet lips. You loved the fact that Luke found you beautiful in sweats and a messy bun. He was wearing his familiar worn out flannel that you loved so much and pajama pants. He smiled and took your hand, leading you to the big couch stacked with blankets in living room.

“My parents are out for the weekend, so we have the whole place to ourselves.”

He smirked at his own remark and pulled you down on to his lap on the couch, wrapping the two of you in a fluffy white comforter. He reached for the remote and put on your favorite movie: the Breakfast Club.

“You know I really like a girl when I agree to watch her favorite cheesy movies with her on a day like this” he said while pressing play.

You flashed a smile at him and pecked his cheek.

“Maybe it’s because you secretly have a thing for romantic comedies.” You both laughed. You reached for your bag and pulled out the surprises you had brought for Luke: sour gummy worms, a jar of Nutella, and Doritos. You saw Luke’s eyes grow wide as you placed the treats on his lap.

“You never fail to impress me, do you, Y/N?”

You bit your lip and tucked your head into the crook of his neck, feeling strong arms immediately finding their way to your waist.

“That’s because I’m the best girlfriend out there.” Luke lifted your chin and kissed the grin off of your face, nodding in agreement with your comment.

While the two of you sat in warm company as the rain angrily hit the tin roof, you realized that this is how you wanted to spend all of your rainy days.

You and Luke were halfway through your third movie - Pretty in Pink - when you started to feel Luke leave small kisses down your neck. You felt the shivers run warmly down your spine and moaned every time his cool lip ring grazed a sweet spot on you neck.

“Luke, you’re going to miss the best part” you whined.

“Sorry, Y/N, but I’ve found something a little more fun to do…” He trailed off began slowly kissing your collarbone, lightly sucking on your tan skin.

Finally agreeing with yourself that Luke was far more interesting than the movie, you turned your body to straddle him, both of his hands finding a sturdy grasp on your legs. You gently grabbed his face and began passionately kissing him. You tugged on his lower lip, causing him to let out a pleasurable moan, and fiddled with his lip ring with your tongue. Luke’s lips tasted like sugar from the candy he was eating, which only made the kisses more and more addicting. Every kiss was sending sweet chills through your body.

After a few minutes, the kisses continued to get more and more heated. By this point, Luke’s tongue was exploring the inside of your mouth, and you kept pulling his body in to be as close as possible. Luke now had his cold hands under your shirt, slowly running his fingers up and down your back and you had your hands in his perfect blonde hair. The chemistry between the two of you was unbreakable. Just as Luke was about to unhook your bra, your phone rang. You saw it was a frantic text from your mom asking where you were and noticed it was already midnight.

“Shit, my mom is going to kill me.”

You hopped off of Luke, ignoring his insistent demands to make your stay, and started looking for your sweatshirt, but not before noticing what you had done to Luke. He saw that you were staring at the evident bulge in his pants and quickly threw the blankets on top of him. He scratched the back of his neck as his face turned cherry red. You couldn’t help but laugh at his awkwardness.

“Hey, you’re the one who caused this problem!” he said.

You actually felt confident now knowing that you turn Luke on this much. You flung your sweatshirt over your head and placed your hands on his knees.

“Maybe next time, I’ll be the one to fix the problem, too.”

You winked and leaned in to meet his eager lips with a long kiss. You broke away from the kiss and ran for the front door. The last thing you heard was Luke scream “I love you, Y/N!” before the door closed completely.

After a short drive to your house, you ran inside and up to your room, avoiding your parents since you knew you were way past curfew. As soon as you were about to turn off your lights, you got a text message from Luke:

“Now I can’t sleep because all I’m thinking about is the next time I get to see you…x”

You fell asleep with a smile on your face and your fingers crossed for another rainy day tomorrow.

7 Days of Frary, Bonus Day: Why do you ship Frary?
I’m not generally a shipper by nature. What I mean by that is, I don’t watch TV shows expecting to ship anything. Usually, I do the opposite–clinging to my “objective view” as much as humanly possible. I have a loooooooong list of TV shows I’ve been addicted to over the years, but my list of ships–like, actual ships and not just “oh, they’re cute” couples– can be counted on my fingers. 
Why is it important that you know how unlikely I am to board the majority of ships in the vast TV ocean? Because it speaks to just how special a pairing has to be in order to turn me from the logical, rational, laid-back viewer that I normally am, into a 24/7 wallowing-in-feels, keyboard-smashing, tumblr-blogging fangirl.

Yes, Frary has turned me into the latter. In fact, they got me so quickly and so powerfully, I actually think it might be some kind of a record. The Guinness book should start a page on most feels generated by a pairing in the least amount of time. I think their record may stand for a long time to come.

But, back to the original question: Why do I ship Frary?

Keep reading

anonymous asked:

How would you define an "OTP?"

The difference between an OTP and a ship:

Ship: Aww, that’s cute. I’d like it if they got together, they’d be such a sweet couple and they have pretty good chemistry.

OTP: OH MY FUCKING GOD DID YOU SEE HOW THEY LOOKED AT EAVCH OTHER? FUCK ME SIDEWAYS WITH A CACTUS AND SHOOT ME IN THE FUCKING FACE THESE TWO FUCKING KILL ME THEY HAVE SO MUCH SEXUAL TENSION AND JUST FUCKING KISS AND HAVE SEX AND BABIES YOU BASTARDS.

If you don’t feel the way you feel in the second option toward a ship, it isn’t an OTP, it’s a ship.
