23. Currently figuring shit out with my life. Constantly discovering and obsessing over new television (Hence the URL?). Also watch a shit ton of movies. Terrible at photoshop so I'm just a reblog kind of blog.
Ask me whatever
KAT IS A FUCKING GENIUS let me tell you what she figured out.
Based on the evidence as follows:
1. The mighty morphin’ Alpha twin thing cannot conceivably be something every werewolf twin does or else they wouldn’t be special enough for Duke’s Super Special Alpha Club.
2. Ethan obviously has a deeply rooted panic about the merging ability as evidenced in ‘Motel California’. What was a pointblank suicidal drive in Boyd (we are not opening the McCall can of worms up in here) was in Ethan a need to cut off whatever the hell was invading his body.
3. The Danny/Ethan relationship seems to be just burdened with glorious foreshadowing of the tragic kind. Ethan’s reaction to Danny’s scaring (on his side, mind you) due to a birth defect may have triggered Ethan’s empathy and veiled offer of the Bite because (and this part is all Kat’s terrifying genius):
Ethan and Aiden were conjoined twins.
Perhaps wolfyness or Alphaness healed their separation scars, but the Alpha form returns them to (and takes them well beyond) their natural state.
This explains Ethan’s complete panic at the idea of this lack of autonomy returning (especially in an intimate moment) and his passive role in the merging process might indicate that when conjoined, Aiden had the majority of mobility or autonomy over their bodies.
Something that caught my attention about our murder victims is that, aside from being virgins, they are people who place emphasis on the importance of virginity.
Heather fiercely does not want to be a virgin anymore, in part as a rejection of the identity of being a seventeen year old virgin. Virginity is important enough to her that it would be a part of her essential self-identifier.
Dead guy with the purity ring puts enough weight on virginity to have pledged to stay a virgin and gotten a ring to remind himself. It’s a big deal to him, too.
Emily’s the third dead virgin, and she was visibly nervous. It was her girlfriend’s first time, too, but her girlfriend was happy and trying to make things romantic, possibly to try to ease Emily’s nerves. That would indicate to me at least that she was less nervous herself, possibly because virginity wasn’t a big deal to her.
This all kind of signals people who felt like they were about to have an important transition. So what if it’s not about virginity at all, but about the energy that comes from anticipating change?
Supernatural - Season 9 - Speculation on Sam
This article is a pretty surface level reading that misinterprets and misrepresents Sam’s motives and character in turns and there is literally so much I want to tackle here but I’ll try to hit the biggest points. Here we go:
The problems were contrived, given the fact that Sam didn’t look for Dean in the first place. It’s a choice that I consider widely out of character for him, but there is nothing fans can do about it now.
If you don’t think Sam having a psychotic break (i.e. “my world imploded” in 8.06) and thinking Dean was dead is enough then I’m not sure what to tell you. Sam didn’t abandon Dean in purgatory because he didn’t know Dean was in purgatory. He thought his brother was dead, and if there’s one thing the Winchesters have learned over the years it’s that every time one of them tries to bring the other back from the dead, they pay the price in much bigger ways. With that in mind it makes sense that Sam wouldn’t have tried to find a bargain or deal to bring Dean back, even if he was in the right mind to do so. What Carver failed to do is to show us how broken Sam was after the S7 finale instead of just having him say it. What “fans” can do about it now is to actually attempt a more than cursory understanding of Sam and canon and see that “Sam not looking for Dean” is an inaccurate simplification of what actually occurred. But I’ll get to that soon enough:
Let’s talk Hannibal and feminism for a second.
Specifically, let’s talk about what makes Lecter’s character so appealing to a female audience and why that makes so many people uncomfortable.
(Takes the book & movie canons into account. TW for discussion of murder, cannibalism and violence as well as mentions of sexual violence.)
Can I talk about Boyd and Erica for a second?
These two baby betas joined the pack so they could be strong, so they could have a place where they belonged and it fucking kills me. They didn’t sign up to be hunted, to be even bigger outcasts than they were, so of course they run. They run because they’re 16 and scared and they took the bite so they wouldn’t have to feel that way ever again. So they could be part of a pack.
The looks on their faces when they tell Derek about the howls in the forest says it all, they don’t listen to him because they want so bad for it to be dozens of wolves, ones that know what they’re doing, ones that can protect them because they’re 16 and scared and they didn’t sign up for a war.
When Boyd grabs Erica’s hand, even without romantic implications, it’s because they’re all the other has and he takes her hand to let her know he’s there, to let her know he’ll protect her because even if he’s scared, she’s got it worse because Erica’s had to deal with fear so much longer than he has so he gets the fuck over it and takes her hand and that’s what pack really is right there. It’s being 16 and scared but putting on a brave face because you’ve got something worth protecting, something worth demanding to be left behind to die for, something worth turning back and getting shot with arrow after arrow for.
And I just wish Derek could see that. See how many people he has willing to turn back for him, to take an arrow for him, to tread water for hours for him because they know how willingly he’d stay behind to face gunfire and alphas and kanimas to keep them safe. That he could see how strong having someone to lean on makes you.
Also can we please talk about how all this time Stiles has felt like every single day is a panic attack?
He’s lived this entire season with that tension in his chest. With that shortness of breath, with that utter fear of tipping over the edge and spiraling out of control. With the weight of the world on his shoulders and he’s trying so desperately to keep his feet underneath him, to keep pushing forward, because people are depending on him.
That’s every single day for Stiles.
And the people around him don’t have any idea.
