The Hargreeves Children

Natural Phenomenon Series

Allison Hargreeves: The Sort Sol

.

“The Sort Sol (or Black Sun) is a nature phenomenon in Jutland, Denmark. Very large numbers of migrational starlings gather there in spring and autumn when they move between their winter grounds in southern Europe and their summer breeding grounds in Scandinavia and other countries near the Baltic Sea.”

The formation that takes places mimicks the visual of a black sun.

im bored and its Saturday night so I plan on reviewing characters from the best show: the umbrella academy

TUA SPOILERS OFC!!!!!!!

1. Luther

image

Luther is a character that’s really hated on, but personally I don’t hate him all that much. Sure, he makes a lot of mistakes throughout the season but he really doesn’t know what it’s like to live without his everyday actions being approved by Sir Reginald. He’s got a lot of issues, and is a dick sometimes, but overall 5/10.

2. Diego

image

I love Diego and he’s such a good character with great development. In the beginning of episode one, I immediately thought he was a douchebag but I ended up loving his character. He’s so nice… in his own way, of course. But you can see as the series goes on how much he cares about his family and Eudora… :(!! Overall, 10/10. Kind of a dick, but I’m letting it slide because he loves his mom and his knives which makes up for it.

3. Allison

image

I love Allison so much, even though her “big-sister skills” are questionable. Her character is so *mwah* and I can’t help but love her. She has a big, big heart but sometimes she focuses more on herself than others in the heat of the moment. She made a lot of mistakes with Vanya in the season, which put me on edge, but I thought the scene at the concert with her, Vanya, and the gun <3, really made me SOB. Her character really portrays how nothing can stand in-between sibling bonds, especially when she chooses to save Vanya instead of the world. 8/10.

4. Klaus

image

I love Klaus and he’s one of my favorites, (him, Diego, and Ben). I truly LOVE how much he progressed through the season. I relate to him most out of all character’s by far. When Dave died it was so amazing how Klaus pulled through his addiction just to see him again, which I think is so wonderful. I can’t wait for next season when we get to see more of his powers!! 11/10.

5. Five

image

Five’s a real dickhead, but I honestly love how he risked everything to save his family from impending doom. His cocky and ambitious character lowkey annoyed me throughout the series but I was also soft for the other side of him which was trying so hard to save the world. He may not show it, but he loves his family a lot. And he loves Delores which adds 0.5 points. 7.5/10.

6. Ben

image

I love Ben so much. I feel so utterly bad for him and I’m dying (lmao) to find out how he died. His character is so wonderful and just improves the show by 100% anytime he’s on screen. I love and think it’s so amazing how much he’s trying to help his brother be the amazing person he sees him as. Ben is so wonderful and he needs 800 more minutes, at least, of screen time next season. Ben is one of the best characters in the show for his heartfelt nature. 11/10.

7. Vanya

image

I’m in love with Ellen Page Vanya. Her beautifully portrayed character makes me SCREAM. Yes, she tried to end the world and had already once killed everyone in a different timeline but that doesn’t matter. She is so kickass and awesome. I feel horrible for how she was treated by her father and her siblings, which Allison tried to make up for during the season. Her powers are so cool, too. I love Vanya, but I feel as though ending the world because of your childhood trauma is a bit much. But we also should remember she didn’t have much control over her powers and her anger must’ve taken the best of her. Her sibling, Luther, also put her in the one place of her childhood that was most traumatic which was so horrible. I’m going have to take away 0.5 points, though. She kinda slit Allison’s throat :/. 9.5/10.

8. Hazel and Cha-Cha

image

The two most badass characters of the show. I love them so much even though their relationship is a little toxic. But that’s not completely their fault. 

Hazel: 6/10

Cha-Cha: 5/10

9. Leonard Peabody/Harold Jenkins

image

I hate him, I don’t even know why I included him in this. -1/10.

10. Grace 

image

I love Grace so much! She is the best robot mom in history and I feel so bad for how Reginald treated her. Grace gets a 200/10 from me, chief.

11. Sir Reginald Hargreeves 

image

Who hurt this man to make him such a monster? Reginald is the worst character by far, he hurt and traumatized all of his “children”. Sure, they’re superheroes and need training to save people or whatever but they were just kids. They didn’t deserve to be hurt so badly by the man they deemed their father. 0/10.

12. The Handler 

image

“Wow, what a bitch,” I said ten seconds before falling in love with her. So, whatever. She’s kind of the bad guy but she’s so funny, idk why. I love her. 4/10, just because she did a lot of messed up shit but she just gave me vibes whenever she was onscreen.

13. Pogo

image

Pogo was an enabler to Sir Reginald’s abuse which makes me give him a 2/10. Yes, he cared for the kids but he was an enabler to his abuse and could’ve told them the secrets Reginald kept hidden instead of forcing them all to slowly suffer as they uncover more and more. 

14. Agnes Rofa

image

I LOVE HER SO MUCH SHE IS SUCH A SWEETIE. 1000/10.

ok that’s pretty much it of all the characters I wanted to review/that’s pretty much all there were other than side characters. I love this show so much so :) enjoy my dumbass review

you guys should go follow me and like all my other stuff cuz I kinda post a bunch alright thank u <3

A lot of people despise Allison + Luther, but personally I view it as odd but not entirely bad.

image

It may be disgusting to some that they have a romance even though the world perceives them as brother and sister but take a look from my perspective:

For starters, their entire childhood was basically strangers living in a household together. Vanya even admitted it in her book. The Hargreeves were never a normal family, they were strangers living under the same roof being raised by a man who never loved them. It wasn’t a family at all, it was anything but.

And since they were young, I believe they were 12 or 13 in the tent scene from their childhood, they viewed each other as partners. Not legit girlfriend and boyfriend, but they loved each other and I don’t think either Luther or Allison viewed each other as siblings. Anyone with common sense wouldn’t approve of incest, but they just didn’t see each other in that sibling way.

Yes, they were technically (adopted) siblings but three main factors are:

-Allison and Luther did not see each other as siblings.

-They are not related by blood.

-IT’S TECHNICALLY NOT INCEST, IT JUST SOUNDS WRONG WHEN YOU SAY IT.

Personally, I think it’s fine but a bit disturbing because of the brother + sister role they were forced upon, but they shouldn’t be hated for it. And I think the writer’s did an amazing job portraying Allison + Luther.

So please, let this disturbingly odd but sweet pair dance in the moonlight.

image

And no, I don’t condone incest in any way but to me this is more of a love under weird and confusing circumstances. But you’d truly have to be in the characters shoes to understand their view on this, though I think if their relationship isn’t a brother and sister stance then it’s just another odd relationship in TV history! 

image

I think for it to truly be incest they’d have to be blood-related, which they are (thankfully) not. It’s a weird, slightly-whacky relationship in which its circumstances are strange but Allison and Luther are both strange. The entire household is; it’s just their way of functioning and that’s A-Okay.

And I also want to say I view their relationship (other than the kissing) as less romantic over time and more just a traumatized duo who care about each other deeply.

Anyway, we stan Gerard Way 🤪🤪🤪

What would you think would be the ideal happy ending for each of the hargreeves siblings?

Luther: I think he’d definitely be happiest working on a research base; but after spending four years alone on the Moon, I don’t know if space-related research would bring back bad memories. If not, then I’d say his ideal happy ending would see him working for NASA on Earth, putting his meticulous notes to use as he advises astronauts on lunar conditions and potential projects that could be hosted there. If his time alone ruined space for him, then I think he’d be happiest working on a strictly earthbound research project in someplace that makes him want to go out and explore every day. Yellowstone National Park is the first place that comes to mind, since that’s what’s closest to me; but there are so many places of natural beauty across the world that I can see Luther finding something to learn and love almost anywhere.

Diego: I started out thinking he’d be happiest in a leadership position—after he learns the proper skills, of course, because as it stands he would not be a good leader—but honestly, I don’t think he craves the chance to lead so much as he craves the chance to be noticed. He does vigilante work in a leather suit and domino mask, for fuck’s sake. You don’t wear either of those things if you want to be an anonymous do-gooder. So, I think Diego would be happiest doing something that puts his skills and talents on display. Not hero work, and not police work; those things are both too close to what he did as a kid, and I think he’d benefit from a fresh start. Maybe he could teach martial arts classes. Maybe he could start a band.

Allison: I don’t think getting back together with Patrick would be her ideal happy ending. From all we’ve seen, their relationship is pretty fractured, and I think there’s evidence to suggest she either Rumored him into loving her or chose him because she wanted to be with someone. However, I do think her ideal happy ending would involve her patching up her relationship with Claire. Maybe it would involve her getting partial custody; maybe it would involve some event that could only happen in the TUA ‘verse that makes her Claire’s sole (and fully reformed) parent. Whatever the case, I think Allison would be happiest if Claire were back in her life—a life she builds on her own, without use of her powers.

Klaus: “With Dave” is the obvious answer, and it’s one I agree with. But I also think his ideal happy ending would be one where he’s come to accept his powers and learned to cope with them. Maybe he works as a medium, allowing people to contact their loved ones. Maybe he works as a psychic consultant for the FBI, helping to solve some of the nation’s most notorious cold cases. Getting to live a quiet and contented life with Dave is only part of the answer. I think he also needs to find a way to see his powers not as something to be avoided and shut off, but as something potentially helpful.

Five: He told the Handler “I don’t belong anywhere, thanks to you”; so I think his happy ending would be one where he does have some sense of belonging. I like to picture him as the grouchy family uncle with all the good stories, popping back to 1937 to grab a box of donuts from Krispy Kreme’s grand opening for Claire’s birthday party and regaling his siblings with wild tales of falling in with bootleggers during Prohibition.

Ben: He’s been on the fringes of the family for years, with only Klaus for company. So, whether he stays dead throughout the series or is brought back to life through time-travel or some other kind of shenanigans, I think Ben’s ideal happy ending would see him having the chance to be part of the family again. Maybe this would involve Klaus manifesting him for family gatherings; maybe it would mean Klaus speaks for him during calls to the other siblings. Whatever the case, I think having a chance to spend time with his siblings as more than just a presence that Klaus argues with would be ideal.

Vanya: I think continuing to pursue music would make her happiest; but I can see it working out one of two ways, based on two different views. One holds that she plays classical music because she genuinely enjoys it; the other holds that she plays it because it’s what Reginald considered “proper” music and even after all these years she’s still subconsciously vying for his attention and approval. If the former is true, then I think Vanya’s ideal ending would see her auditioning for an orchestra in a different city where she can somewhat start over, landing first chair (because let’s face it: she’s damn good) and playing there for a while. But if the latter is true, then I think she needs to get away from classical a bit, chart her own course, pursue music that’s challenging and fun to play, but also a bit rebellious. In other words, I think she should join a symphonic metal band. Symphonic metal slaps, and having a classically trained violinist on the roster would be a huge draw for purists, casual listeners, and newcomers alike. Vanya’s background as a classical violinist would give her band a solid chance at success; and breaking out of the orchestral mold would give her a chance to redefine music for herself, free of her father’s influence.

(sorry if this is worded oddly) I'm curious- I often see people in the fandom assuming that Klaus told the others about him seeing Ben before the shows timeline, and was ignored, but do we know if that actually happened? It'd be weird of him to keep it from them, but his comment of "If Ben was here, he'd agree with me" doesn't sound like he is or has been insisting that Ben *is* there at all...

I don’t recall it ever being stated in the show, but I don’t think he did. 

Ben’s death, however it happened, was traumatic for all the siblings in the house at the time. I’d imagine there was a period—maybe months, maybe years—before they went their separate ways, while they plotted escape strategies, set up jobs and applied for apartments on the sly. Klaus was already deep into substance addiction by then, and it seems most of them are aware of how drugs shut off his powers. 

So, to set the stage: Everyone is in mourning. Diego is throwing clothes and whatever he can reasonably call his own into boxes while Reginald follows him around picking fights. Allison is looking up prices of bus tickets to LA while Luther begs her not to go. Vanya is using her lack of clout to her advantage, slipping in and out of the Academy to interview for jobs. And Klaus is drinking and using even more than usual, trying to cope with it all while the ghost of his brother comes to terms with the fact he’s no longer alive. 

Since it seems that was the last time they were all together, that would have been the best time for Klaus to tell them he could see Ben. Not only do I think he would have been too confused and too deep in grieving to say anything, but I also think he would have recognized how unbelievable that claim would have sounded. I mean, if the writers hadn’t chosen to let us see Klaus interacting with Ben—if they had just shown us Klaus arguing and bantering with thin air—there would probably be considerable debate within this fandom as to whether Ben can somehow break the rules, or if Ben were just a drug-induced hallucination. That Klaus can see and speak to Ben is obvious to us only because we know he can talk to him. We’ve seen the evidence. His siblings can’t. 

I do think Klaus let on that he can see Ben at some point after he and Diego reconnected, since he uses “we” instead of “I” while telling him that they want waffles. It doesn’t seem Klaus is one to use the royal “we,” since Diego shifts the rearview mirror (and if you or anyone else reading this isn’t of driving age or doesn’t drive, I can say that this isn’t a usual thing—once you figure out how to tilt that mirror based on your height and the type of car you’re driving, it doesn’t need a lot of adjustments). So I think he told Diego at some point—or maybe Diego caught him talking to Ben, Klaus explained, Diego assumed it was the drugs talking, there was a fight, and Diego was left wondering if any of Klaus’ claims were true. 

But with the rest of the siblings, I think Klaus just chose not to tell them. It was probably easier to let them think he’d lost his marbles than it was to tell them the truth.
