((( sidenote: i also think it might be called forevermore but that’s the same typa vibe )))
upon further inspection of literally everything and burning my eye sockets while staring at the beautiful piece of art that is the ME! music video, i have decided that ts7 WILL be called FOREVER……
ps: there may be typos because i had a heart attack connecting all of these dots…ok back to the regularly scheduled program…..
first stop: why she disappeared
if you watch the reputation stadium tour on netflix about 13,000 times like i did, eventually you notice that at the end, there is something ~very~ interesting in the credits…. when you look right underneath the why she disappeared poem, you see this:
SEQUEL TO “… MORE” UMM OKAY
when i think of something that comes before more i go right to forever… oh and what does taylor sing in the very last song of reputation? “you and me FOREVERMORE”
alright if you aren’t already shook, here comes more..
stop two: taylor’s abc hint video
yes i watched it a million times and cried a million tears but there is one part that REALLY stood out to me… when taylor is at the bluebird she talks about how it is a sacred spot in music-dom and then she says “i hope it stays this way forever” hits us with the smirk and then BAM video over…. significant? i think yes…
up next is where we stretch it a little but it’s fine….
stop three: ME! music video
taylor said we were missing a big easter egg and i don’t think that’s what i found but i did find this… in the middle of the song brendon opens his jacket unlocks a heart-shaped door that leads into a heart-shaped kaleidoscope…. what song does this remind you of? hmmmmm maybe welcome to new york when she says “kaleidoscope of loud heartbeats under coats” but what else does she say in that song…..
the scene immediately after the kaleidoscope scene is taylor and brendon dancing, probably to a beat…. the other welcome to new york lyric “i could dance to this beat beeeeeaaat forevermore” ope there she is folks… a stretched forever reference
i really do think there’s something bigger that i missed in the mv bc i am oblivious so let me know if you see anything
now we shall flashback to insta of the past…..
stop four: the palm trees
ahhh yes the infamous palm trees…. as we all discovered before, palm trees can represent eternal life and taylor wore a dress that said eternal on it…. what does eternal mean folks? why, it means forever
one last minor sighting because why not…
stop five: elle uk article
when explaining songwriting, taylor mentions how it captures a feeling so that it can last forever and she has been talking about songwriting a lot lately. here’s the what she said (and it ties back to those pesky hearts):
i think ts7 will be called forever and here are the receipts…. this theory is definitely kinda (five fence) hole-y so feel free to add on but i think it’s pretty legit…. thank you for coming to my ted talk and i’d like to leave you with this: TS7 FOREVER :”)
y’all remember how taylor put the christmas tree on her story and said it was a clue…. well, what type of trees are christmas trees? right, evergreens or should i say FOREVERgreens
the following update is brought to you by ME! (like me the person…. the song didn’t tell me this)
stop seven: counting
forever is seven letters…. that’s it…. that’s the update
the following update is brought to you by @jenespada
stop eight: ME! music video…again
as we all see, the end of the video is inspired by singing in the rain and that may remind you of some lyrics that have to do with, say, rain? perhaps this rings a bell “oh, and it rains in your bedroom everything is wrong it rains when you’re here and it rains when you’re gone” from the song – wait for it –FOREVER & always
also, if you think about this song, she’s reflecting on someone who promised forever & always but then left…… but now she actually has forever & always with joe :”)
the following update is brought to you by ME! (the person…. again…)
stop nine: reputation prologue
in the reputation prologue taylor talks about finding your forever… as we all know she has likely found her forever in joe :”) which would make this title even more fitting
I had RTed the video of the end of IM3 that someone captioned “thank iron man 3 for giving Tony the ending he actually deserved.” I’ve been thinking this a lot lately—at the time I was devastated at the idea of him stopping because Iron Man 3 was such a high point and I loved him so much, but now after that horrifying film and what they did to him, I sort of wish this had been the end. We never would have gotten Iron Dad, but he would have been alive :/
But then some dude, who apparently followed me, decided to reply.
I literally hate this take. He didn’t want it?? The fuck?? It’s not like he went back to Iron Man for shits and giggles, he had an actual real opportunity to save his KID. The kid who died in his arms, who he loved like his own son. He didn’t want to live? He didn’t want to see his little girl grow up? Get old with the love of his life? See the world heal from the horror that happened to it? Watch Peter become a leader in his stead? HE IS AT PEACE? He wasn’t an old man suffering from cancer. He’s not at peace, he’s fucking dead. Not all endings have to be happy? No shit, Sherlock, but Tony had earned his. Why did Steve get it and not him? Because Tony actually wanted it? It was not a great ending. It was fucking terrible. It was the worst decision Marvel has ever made.
I hate that shit. I hate it.
But instead of spewing all that in a rage, I just said “disagree” and softblocked him. I wish these people would stay in their goddamn lanes.
My god, this clip was perfection. The acting, the timing, the message. It was just so raw and perfect.
At this point I think Yann’s rejection is just the last straw. He can’t take it anymore, he just explodes. And I love how Mika and Manon were there for him and able to give him different things.
It almost makes me like how they made Mika into a pushy asshole ? Because they’re not really friends, and yet Mika is able to reach accross that and be there for him and it gave me this super strong sense of gay solidarity ? And I liked that Lucas was able to call him on how they pushed him onto the couch. It’s not all rosy, which makes it extra powerful for me.
And Mika’s speech was just so f*cking on point. It’s pretty much what we were saying after yesterday’s clip. Yeah, sometimes ppl’s reactions will suck. And you’re in for a lifetime of telling ppl you’re gay. But being in the closet is cold and dark and it stinks. It’s not worth it and if people have a problem, f*ck them. It’s defiant and it’s brave and it’s beautiful and it felt so real to me. Not that more optimistic scenarios aren’t, it’s just…for me, this one really hit a nerve. Like knowing you’re going to be ok even if there are obstacles ahead.
And Manon’s presence, soothing, accepting, was so beautiful too. By telling Lucas she’s known about him for a long time, she’s also telling him that she’s accepted him for just as long, and hasn’t treated him any different.
Lucas thinking that Yann hated him and that Eliott didn’t care about him and that he “forced” him to come out and then left him alone…wow, heartbreaking. But also it felt really good to hear him express the pain and anger for once. And it felt really good to hear that - even though we all know how Eliott really feels - his anger at Eliott is valid, and he’s going to be okay without him, and maybe he was just a catalyst for a change he needed to make anyway, and he has nothing to be regretful about.
And Lisa’s completely oblivious “oh you’re gay ?” at the end ? Perfect comedic timing after this rollercoaster.
Wow. Now I’m like uhhh….how the hell are they going to do MORE intense than this ? Like ??? How ? How are we going to survive ?
“Eu te encontrarei nos portões quando escurecer, você pula o muro e eu vou encontrar um lugar para estacionar… Mate os anjos se eles estiverem de guarda”. Como eu começo, quando você não sabe o que dizer?
Você disse que o mundo já está cheio demais de pessoas derrotadas e você não seria uma delas. É sempre uma escolha se mudar e encontrar algo melhor. Eu espero que seja onde você está… Eu espero tanto que seja melhor onde você está…
Nós encontramos um sósia com uma cicatriz reveladora aquele dia. Eu pude ver o universo escondido em seu coração… Queria ter te dito tudo isso antes de ficar muito escuro… Onde você começa, quando sabe que tem que acabar?
É como uma flor na chuva, só cresce mais quando está cinza… Você apenas brilhou mais, transformando toda aquela dor em ouro. “Eu posso morrer, mas não posso quebrar”, você disse. “Todas aquelas pessoas podem falar e governar tudo o que quiserem que eu não vou obedece-las enquanto eu ainda estiver sorrindo”…
Como eu começo, Quando você não sabe o que dizer? Bem, Eu não sei o que dizer.
Onde quer que esteja, espero que você esteja bem, espero que esteja melhor do que antes, meu grande amigo. Eu não sei o que dizer, só sei que eu ainda lembro de tudo, inclusive de você.
Sarah! 😭💔 I wish GOT had been something like Buffy killing Angel! She loved him so much and she had to kill him to save the world from acathla opening her mouth and releasing hell on earth… in GOT it could have been just as powerful if they had done a proper job writing and building up to that point… not what we got!
“Happy Birthday Mert !🎉🎉🎉 you are as beautiful on the inside as you are on the out side! your talent is without peer and you always manage to make us mere mortals look glamorous and beautiful……………. But you still have to walk behind me! b*^% ♥️😂😂😂🎂🍾” -Madonna
So here it is. The longest post I’ll ever write, so bear with me. (I’m not kidding, this is HUGE).
I watched Endgame at 7 pm yesterday… Came back home at 11. And I posted that I would try to sleep and make this post today. You know how many hours I slept? Four. And I finally fell asleep at 3.30 am.
I will try to say all my thoughts on this post, so if I miss something, I’m sorry. (Note: although I like more characters, the IronFam, pepperony, irondad… Will be the main concerns here, so anti Tonys, get the fuck out)
i know youve discussed the possibility of fjord multiclassing into a paladin after breaking ties to ukotoa but what about instead he switches from a hexblade patron to a celestial?
I’ve given this some thought actually, and let me say…. I love??? Like, the sheer concept of having not one, but TWO patrons he has to deal with and negotiate his life between–like, just the ugliest custody battle you can imagine.
And not to be THAT person, but it interests me mechanically, too. There’s no question that Fjord is more suited to be a warlock than he is a paladin (or anything else!) People say he could do a dex build, to which I say–no? He really couldn’t? And I just can’t help but feel it would be such a goddamn tragedy to deprive this magic-loving man of the highest levels of magical shit. Fjord is a magic dude, not a stabbing people dude, no matter what his costume choices say.
There’s also the very very tricky business of negotiating how his leveling would work exactly–would his higher level spells only be the ones available to him from the new patron? Would he keep the spells from his old patron? (Could he really have two at the same time, or would he have to cut ties irrevocably with one?) Could he keep the warlock levels he already has and build on them? Would everything from Uk’otoa get wiped and the new patron build him up by giving him a slew of new things? And also–honestly, I wouldn’t complain if Fjord lost the sword and made a new pact. As Iconic as it is, as many wonderful jokes as it’s birthed, it doesn’t really suit him or how he prefers to operate in combat. Mostly it works only insofar as it connects him to Vandren and Molly.
(Maybe I shouldn’t complain–it’s nice to use your sword to Look Pensive and for a free Get Out of Dodge Spell! Never change, Fjord)
(And–Traveler Archfey theories? Archfey Warlock Fjord who already loves illusions and bampfing out of places? Or Celestial Warlock Fjord for the Luxon? The Wildmother? Yesssssssss)
