side by sides of Clarke’s Memory Walls and the Real Moments
*I’m only doing ones I am 90 - 100% sure I have correct. There are ones I’m missing, I just couldn’t get a good enough pic of the drawing*
(I know people think *I originally did too* the above is when Murphy hung Bellamy in the dropship, but that makes no sense bc Clarke wasn’t there, and would have no memory of it. Maybe it is though and they just forgot Clarke wasn’t there)
Below are just general pictures of the characters cause I couldn’t determine exact scenes
Lexa: You yelled “Listen here you little shit, I have feelings for you and I know you have feelings for me too. So it’s about fucking time we acknowledge them” at 2 am while you were drunk in front of my house
Unpopular opinion: I’m sick of Raven’s self-righteousness.
Don’t get me wrong, I think she’s a badass gorgeous
genius. But the only reason her humanity is intact is because other characters (esp. Clarke)
Raven built the bomb that blew up the bridge and started
Raven, basically, single-handedly armed the 100.
Raven helped Clarke launch the dropship, killing hundreds
that Clarke made the best choice in killing Finn. She understood it would have
been way worse for him otherwise.
She was in the dungeons, getting tortured and would have been killed if Clarke hadn’t made the
(really difficult) choice to save her own people at the expense of the Mountain
Raven chose to
take the Key. I know she ended up basically defeating ALIE, but that doesn’t
take back that, when the chips were down, she chose relief from pain over what
she knew in her heart was the right choice (a choice Clarke has never once
RAVEN LITERALLY TOLD CLARKE THAT SHE WOULDN’T MAKE THE
LIST OF PEOPLE TO SAVE.
This one I ABSOLUTELY have to stress, because 1) Of all the people, RAVEN would know exactly who needed to be on the Ark in order to survive 5 years, and 2) She obviously KNOWS how hard these choices are, and yet she
DEMANDS that Clarke be the one to make them.
This is the moment I stopped giving Raven credit.
She does not get to blame Clarke for
following through on decisions she refused to make.
Season 5: (My reasons during season 5 apply to all the Spaceventure
Clarke sacrificed herself.
She had ONE person on Earth.
When they came back to Earth, they treated her like she
wasn’t part of their family anymore, that Madi wasn’t part of their family and
was therefore expendable.
To Clarke, Madi is NOT expendable. She is FAMILY.
If they’re going to justify everything they do by “we’re
protecting our family”, Clarke gets to use the same justification.
God, I hope they give Raven something better to do than blame
Clarke for making the decisions she was fully capable of making but didn’t want
the fact that Raven says (and I am not shading her I am just stating how it is) that “Clarke Griffin doesn’t break” only comes to show you that Clarke’s people, aside from bellamy also saw her in a way as a leader figure that doesn’t break in any way but just kills (much like the grounder’s and their Wanheda), for Skaikru she may not be Wanheda, they may not call her that but they see her as equally ruthless, emotionless, simply someone who goes to meet the ends to whatever they need to do to keep them safe, as horrible and as ruthless as that is. they don’t see her as their friend. im not sure when that happened exactly, maybe it was all the way back in season 2/3 but it did. season 5 is a confirmation of that, and this line is yet another reiteration of it.
they’ve never seen clarke break. she does. she is human. maybe she doesn’t always do it in front of them. maybe she only allows herself to do it in front of the only person who’d get her and her choices aka bellamy but honestly that, in its entirety breaks my heart.
we all scream about the grounders calling her wanheda.
well her people call her Clarke Griffin (”and her impossible choices”; and “she’s always in trouble” and “the one who doesn’t break”) but that’s equally as horrible and terrifying and most of all
i love raven and she has always been one of my favorite characters but i’m kind of happy that she faced a no win situation here and had to make a difficult decision. it was definitely something she needed especially after constantly calling out clarke for making all of the choices she’s made and now maybe raven will understand
I really hope Season 7 is about The Delinquents and getting Octavia (and Diyoza) back. No new civilization or group of people this time. This is the Final Season and I think it should be very character heavy. Specifically, The Delinquents.
That ragtag band of juvenile delinquents is what started this show and they are its heart. The remaining of The 100 that have fought and made it this far deserve the last season to shine a spotlight on them.
