Fandom, after all, is born of a balance between fascination and frustration: if media content didn’t fascinate us, there would be no desire to engage with it; but if it didn’t frustrate us on some level, there would be no drive to rewrite or remake it

Essays in Existentialism: Alone



Ever consider writing canon Clexa after Clarke returns from fixing the Pike problem and they’re alone together for the first time? Lexa is worried and nervous. Maybe Clarke changed her mind about them. Maybe it was a one time thing for Clarke. She doesn’t know where they stand and how to broach the subject. Just want to see your take on what Commander self-control would do :)

The fanfare was minimal. It was nonexistent. But there were glares and angry muttering, scowls and snarls, absolute hatred poured upon the returning sky people as they came, once again, with promises and hope for peace with a people who were not eager to be near them, let alone speak of truces and partnership.

Photographer Daniel Beltrá travels far and wide to document climate change.

Beltrá on why he does it:

The important part is to make people understand that we’re all in this together,” he says. “At the end of the day, we all still live on the same planet—we all drink the same water, breathe the same air. I don’t think there’s anybody that wouldn’t want to keep that healthy.

I’m here. I wouldn’t go away. I’m always here “

zhe if im out of line come yell at me but -

clarke finding becca’s briefcase and the very last vial of nightblood serum. secreting it away. keeping it safe and hidden and out of prying sight. sitting every night with that seringe in her lap. inky black nightblood glinting in the fluorescent lights overhead.

the flame is an ever present pendant around her neck. even as they go out into the wilds to save a world that just seems to want to keep ending. in the back of the rover or out under the stars, theyre both still there. taunting her. coaxing her.

she hasnt taken it to raven, or to her mother. to anyone, really. she knows she wouldn’t get it back. but in her mind she’s got a pretty good idea of how it works. how they work. nanobots, if anyone were to ask her, which they dont, because they dont know.

is it unhealthy? obsessive? destructive?

you bet.

it’s a fools hope, honestly. but hope enough. even the slightest, craziest hope is hope enough for her.

and. well. she’s not sure what she expected.

no. thats a lie. she expected to be back in a gleaming city. she expected to see her again, effortlessly. but the flame isnt tied to any virtual reality. she cant simply close her eyes and be there. not flippantly at least.

so she practices. over days and weeks. she mediates and practices mindfulness. she can feel them, eventually; a collective presense in the pit of her chest and the back of her mind. she can hear them too, a cacophonous noise just beyond comprehension.

she can see glimpses in her dreams. flashes of light and bursts of sound. someone calling to her.

it takes her three months to be able to sink deep enough into herself to achieve what she’d been after. three whole months before she wills lexa into the forefront. three months, but, face to face with those eyes, with that smile, with the bemused quirk of her eyebrow and tilt of her head, clarke would have been willing to strive for an eternity.

“i wasnt sure - …”

“yes you were, you wouldnt have tried if you werent.”

“i wasnt entirely sure though.”

“sure enough. isnt that what counts?”

“…you’re here. you’re real.”

“just as much as you are, yes, i’m here.”

way out of line . unacceptable
