Extra unpopular opinion
I hope Bobby is the one getting hurt at the end of the season
Don't get me wrong, I don't really want anybody to get hurt and I adore Bobby, but let's be honest, Bobby being hurt would be the most interesting option as it would change the whole dynamic if he can't get back to work right away... He is the captain, so what happens to the 118 without their captain? Bobby being hurt would affect and influence every single character in the show and the whole story
No to mention that it would be an interesting parallel to Buck's story in s3 and he would literally be in Buck's position, although I doubt very much Buck would be in Bobby's position as he is too young to be the captain
Also, would someone in the team became the captain or would it be someone new
And regarding Bobby's individual story, think about how it would be for him, an ex addict, to be hurt and to have to face pain and for Athena and the kids to be there and having to deal with it... It just opens a lot of interesting stories
It's literally the most interesting option
No to mention Bobby needs a storyline ASAP

3B better have everyone [especially Eddie] apologizing to one Mr. Evan Buckley because it isn’t on him to apologise all the freaking time.

My Weekly Fic Recs Wrap Up
For numbers 113-118 (ﾉ´ヮ´)ﾉ*:･ﾟ✧
113. To Serve Malfoy by VivacissimoVoce
Harry loses a wager with Draco, which means he must spend the summer at Malfoy Manor as Draco’s personal servant.
114. The Vanishing Department by dicta_contrion @dictacontrion
The things we lose have a way of coming back to us in the end, even if that involves a lot more form-filling, bickering, covert glancing, miscommunication, and flying furniture than we might expect.
115. Chaos Theory by Bounding-Heart (Brief_and_Dreamy)
When an ancient spell book is discovered in an abandoned vault, Harry--a Curse-Breaker--and Draco--an Unspeakable--are called in to examine it. Draco does everything in his power to resist Potter's advances, despite his growing crush. Potter just wants sex, he assumes, and Draco doesn't want to be used. He discovers, however, that some things simply aren't within our power to control.
116. Rough Magic by birdsofshore
Malfoy's magic has run wild. But though wild magic is unpredictable and greatly feared, Harry's damned if he's going to let Malfoy rot in St Mungo's while they work out what to do with him.
117. Open For Repairs by FeelsForBreakfast
After the war, Draco works at a tv repair shop and Harry breaks things.
feat. sad boys in jumpers and more ABBA than is probably necessary
118. Kiss Me (Under the Light of a Thousand Stars) by Iwao, Sophie_French
Harry rescues Draco Malfoy from Azkaban, where he has been imprisoned for three years after the war. Draco is not as Harry remembers, as Azkaban leaves its mark on even the strongest of wizards. With no memory of who he was or how he came to be in Harry's care, Draco needs Harry's help if he is to have any hope of making a full recovery. But Harry has his own demons to fight and together with saving Draco, Harry must also discover a way to find himself.
Here’s a few more treasures from the trove...
Tea and No Sympathy by who_la_hoop
It's Potter's fault, of course, that Draco finds himself trapped in the same twenty-four-hour period, repeating itself over and over again. It's been nearly a year since the unpleasant business at Hogwarts, and Draco's getting on with his life quite nicely, thank you, until Harry sodding Potter steps in and ruins it all, just like always. At first, though, the time loop seems liberating. For the first time in his life, he can do anything, say anything, be anything, without consequence. But the more Draco repeats the day, the more he realises the uncomfortable truth: he's falling head over heels for the speccy git. And suddenly, the time loop feels like a trap. For how can he ever get Harry to love him back when time is, quite literally, against him?
Right Hand Red by lq_traintracks (lumosed_quill) @lqtraintracks
Harry felt Malfoy's breath on his lips as they came together over the bottle, hands firmly planted on the floor as though they each needed their familiar soil, refusing to cross into enemy territory.
Except that Malfoy no longer felt like his enemy.
Malfoy felt inevitable.
That’s all I’ve got for you this week, my darlings! I hope you enjoy these! xoxo - Carey ₍՞◌′ᵕ‵ू◌₎♡ 💖❤🧡💛💚💙💜

I don`t understand why you all are hating Gabi. She is just a kid, who was brainwashed since an early age and later all here thoughts was strengthened by Reiner`s words. And then an attack on Liberio happened that only father justified her hatred towards Paradis Eldian. But look what amazing progress she did. It didn`t take THAT much to prove her she was wrong.
Like, listen, there were tons of investigations on USSR crimes, GULAG stuff and killing hundreds of people, but in my country, there still are people who love communists and want to vote for whoever will say something similar to their thoughts. It is not an excellent comparison, but both were taught lies from a young age and later was exposed to facts. Gabi changed her mind, but many people couldn`t do that and prefer to ignore the truth.
Gabi story actually reminds me story about neo-nazi who traveled the world and was able to change his minds after interacting with real people from different countries. But that neo-nazi was a grown ass man and Gabi is a kid.
Repeat after me
GABI IS A KID
When I was little I believed that my mission as a woman was to born as many children as possible. And also I was little racist homophobic fuck, but people change, guys. I know you all grow up in progressive countries, but for many people, there still are “devils” on the Earth and they teach their kid the same. But it`s not kid`s fault to believe that, it`s natural to take as truth whatever your parent is saying. We can`t blame them for that. You know why?
CAUSE THEY ARE FUCKING KIDS

Hey! So I was just thinking, why is everyone being so ignorant of the fact Eren led an invasion on Marley and caused countless civilians deaths while being like 'oh we always trusted Eren. He's not the type to betray us'? He wants to free the Eldians on the island but doesn't mind killing those in Liberio...I'm not trying to spread character hate of course but I just wanna know why the 104th kids don't take his horrible actions into consideration!?
Well, they have aknowledged Eren’s actions in Liberio and have already spent one chapter (chapter 108) discussing them and the possible motivations which could have led him to take such a decision.
I have talked about it here.
I think in general chapter 108 makes very clear how all the characters feel about the Liberio attack.
Connie displays the angriest reaction because of Sasha’s death and because (how this chapter reveals) he is scared of being betrayed again.
Armin and Mikasa are both heartbroken, but are willing to still trust Eren for different reasons (or to better say for different reasonings since the core reasons are similar). Armin because he thinks what Eren wants to do in the end is something positive and Mikasa because she is sure Eren loves them.
Jean is maintaining somehow a neutral stance in the chapter and listens to all the others’s opinions offering critics or backup.
What I want to underline is that none of them is willing to break up their bond with Eren over what happened in Liberio. They are hurt both for what they had to do and for Eren acting on his own and forcing them into the mission. However, more than anything they are worried about understanding where Eren is coming from. They are willing to listen to his reasoning.
In other words it has already been proven that the gravity of what happened in Liberio was not enough to make the 104th give up on Eren. It wasn’t enough in chapter 108 and it is not enough ten chapters later.
This is because even if they disagree with Eren’s motivation they can probably understand where he is coming from and might accept that he might have been willing to do such an act in order to protect Eldia. After all, if that were not the case and if they were not ready for some form of compromise with him they would not have gone to help him. They knew Eren would have killed civilians and they accepted to back him up. They did it both because of love and because of him being a character too important for their country to lose.
Here, it is the same. All in all what Onyankopon said is true. No matter if they disagree with Zeke’s plan, losing one of the two brothers would be the end of Eldia as for now. So it makes perfect sense that they accept to help Eren and at the same time it makes perfect sense that in such a chaotic situation they are willing to grab on the hope that Eren won’t let them down. It is a very human reaction if you ask me.
The end of the battle will tell us if their trust is well put. If things are not going to turn out as they wish, I think it will be the final crack in their relationship with Eren at least for the time being. If this happens it is going to be an interesting development because it will force them to start acting on their own and to stop following someone else. After all, right now the 104th are really not acting differently from what they did in Liberio. They won the battle there, but on a personal level they suffered a lot. If the outcome of this battle is going to be even worse than the one in Liberio for them I think this will be the last straw and they will start acting independently from Eren.

(Buck and Eddie arrive at the 118, and are surprised to see what looks like a wedding chapel set-up in the firehouse - chairs split into two groups by an aisle running down the middle, covered in rose petals, and a big wooden wedding arch at the other end with Bobby standing under it, and Christopher beside him)
Buck: What the -
Eddie: - Hell?
(Chim and Hen, both wearing boutonnieres, rush over and pull Eddie down the aisle to stand next to Christopher - who is wearing a suit and grinning)
Eddie: What is going on? Christopher what is going on?
Buck: Yeah, what is going on?
(Maddie, wearing a dress and heels, rushes over, grinning, to stand next to Buck and smoothes out a crease in his uniform shirt)
Buck: Maddie what -
Maddie(to Ravi, upfront): HIT IT!
(Ravi hits a button on his phone and the wedding march starts to play. Maddie beams at Buck, loops her arm through his and starts walking him up the aisle. Buck sees some of the 118 squad, including Hen, starting to cry. They get to the end of the aisle and the music stops, and Maddie gives Buck a little shove forward to stand across from Eddie)
Buck(staring at an equally confused Eddie): Seriously what the fu-
Christopher: - Language!
Eddie: Bobby, can you please explain what the heck is going on?
Bobby(who is standing between Buck and Eddie): I'd be happy to.(to the crowd)...Ladies, and gentleman, we are gathered here today to join this oblivious idiot (gestures to Buck) and this oblivious idiot (gestures to Eddie) in holy matrimony...
Buck and Eddie: WHAT?!
Athena(seated in the front row): Fuckin' finally...
Athena: Sorry, baby.

did it feel odd/badly paced that buck was *so* focused/drill sergeant-y on Ravi right off the bat? I know buck was training to Ravi to replace him but we didn’t see buck made that decision (even unconsciously) on screen, it was just 0 to 100 so quickly
Presumably buck and ravi were working together for months during Eddie’s recovery, right? Ravi isn’t a green probie, we met him, what, in 4x06? First season Probie Buck was scaling buildings, but Ravi can’t work a gurney correctly? It would have made more sense for Hen/Eddie to be the principal team having trouble this episode while Buck spirals in the background watching the team fall apart because of his actions (even if that spiraling is unfounded)
idk lots of off screen decisions and assumptions made by buck this episode. I don’t hate *where* those decisions took us, but wish…maybe we’d seen a little bit more of buck getting to a point of such anxiety/paranoia 😔
Hi there! I don't think the pacing felt odd at all, but in order to answer this question, we have to first consider the kind of headspace Buck is in.
Buck is deeply not okay. Deeply not okay. I'm not even talking about the shooting stuff at this point, I'm talking about everything else.
Buck was born to be "spare parts" for his older brother (I'm not going to argue the ins and outs of "savior siblings;" I know it's something people do and is something that can be done right, but for the sake of this conversation and understanding Buck's character, the Buckleys did it completely wrong). Though it wasn't his fault, Buck "failed" at the one thing he was born for and, whether he realized it or not, he's lived with that failure for his entire life. He's internalized his parents actions and ambivalence toward him, internalized Maddie's abandonment (despite now understanding why she abandoned him, that doesn't change the scarring her leaving had on him), internalized his failed relationships, and all of those things have blended together to make him a deeply insecure adult.
If something goes wrong, in Buck's brain, he is the cause of it.
So how does this effect his relationship with Ravi? Well, because Buck is a) insecure of his place in the lives of the people he loves, and b) always waiting to be rejected by the people he loves, it's more than likely that Buck has always had Ravi in mind as his replacement. Buck is always, in the back of his mind, cataloguing who can and will replace him when he inevitably drives the people he loves away (we see this in 2x01 with his initial interaction with Eddie, and we see him proven "right" in 3x18 when he meets Abby's fiance). Chimney's leaving, or what Buck presumed to be his role in Chimney leaving, was, in his thinking, the nail in an already precariously built coffin. When Buck comes into the loft and sees the firefam interacting with Ravi, we can almost see him looking on like "Yeah, I made the right decision" and it's not hard to see why he thinks that. Ravi is (almost) just like Buck was when he first started out -- very much a golden retriever, very much the little brother of the squad. In Buck's mind, that's all he really offers them: someone to pick on (affectionately), someone to roll their eyes at (affectionately). He still doesn't get the intrinsic worth and value he adds to the team, things that only he can offer them.
So no, I don't think the pacing was off. I think this was a natural escalation to Buck's rapidly declining mental health and fortitude (now I'm including the shooting). Also remember: he just spent a week in close quarters with Ravi due to all shifts being in-house during the blackout. Buck probably observed him, made note of the areas where Ravi was lacking, knew the things he'd hypothetically want him to be aware of just in case Ravi replaced him. Chimney's leaving just gave him what he thought was good reason to put his back-up plan into action.
What I do think is interesting is that Buck expressed insecurity among his place in the 118, but relative to his relationship with Eddie, he seems rather... neutral-bordering-on-relatively-secure. I'm just thinking about how, when Eddie was still with Ana, Buck told him he needed to tell him if something was wrong, presumably so that he could be aware just in case he'd have to step in and take up the mantle where Eddie couldn't. I find that interesting. Maybe he feels unsteady professionally without Eddie by his side, and maybe he's doubting his worth now that "being Eddie's partner" is not in his job description, but it seems like maybe their little chat in the hospital in 4x14 did more for him than we've (currently) been able to see.
Anyway, hopefully, the reassurances Buck got from the firefam in 5x05 will be enough to soothe any lingering anxieties he has about his place with them. He really deserves to feel happy, loved, and secure in his family because they'd all walk through fire for him in an instant.

so. i just finished s4 and uuuh. they're 100% gonna break eddie and ana up in s5 right? 'cause like, eddie was fucking shot and almost died, and instead of using that to (finally lbr) solidify the eddieana relationship, they made her and their relationship almost irrelevant. they made buck and buddie the focal point of it all. 'cause they had the time to solidify it, and yet they chose not to. how am i NOT supposed to think that's on purpose, y'know?
I think it was definitely on purpose and from what we know from various behind the scenes blogs and their dedicated work to keeping an eye on things, GW has been around for filming…exactly once and it was back at the very beginning. She’s in the official cast list for 5x01 so it’s my — not entirely unfounded, but certainly optimistic — belief that she’ll be there long enough for Eddie to break up with her and then she’ll simply be gone.
And I know you didn’t ask this and I haven’t had my coffee yet and I’m typing on my phone BUT I think my ideal season opening (like opening opening not the entire episode) would go like this:
We get the cold open, some wild call the 118 and maybe Athena all respond to, and it’s clearly the present day but then—
We get a flashback montage like that lady with the bicycle in the mudslide episode except it’s our folks
We see the month of May, Chimney confiding in Buck about his worries around Maddie’s health
We see the month of June, Eddie breaking up with Ana because she keeps hovering when he’s injured and trying to recover and he wants to just deal with it himself. He clearly has some ptsd going on but this is presumably not addressed
We see the month of July, Athena is notified that in the next couple months her attacker is going to trial
We see the month of August, Maddie is not improving at home, not with Chimney’s help, not with Buck helping take care of Jee when he can
Still in August, we see Eddie re-certify for his job and refuse to have a party about it and maybe this is where he tells Buck he doesn’t want to jinx it like Buck’s homecoming
Now it’s September and Athena’s case is moving to trial and she’s totally fine stop asking about it thanks
And then we’re up to present day and it’d an episode titled Panic for a reason
There’s a 0.00003% chance of this happening? But that’s what I’d do with it if I were writing. It gives us short scenes of Maddie that they could’ve filmed at the end of season 4 (which I saw rumour of them having done, along with Kenny and Oliver and a baby) which could dove tail into what I think they’re going to have to do with Maddie for 5A which is send her to a recovery place and (hopefully) have her communicate with her family via Skype as she heals. It gives us an insight into how Athena is doing with the news of her attacker going to trial which would of course be poorly but she’s putting on a brave face because she’s Athena and she doesn’t know how else to be. It gives us insight into Eddie’s recovery which is not going super smoothly but he’s fine of course he’s fine why wouldn’t he be fine he’s been shot before what else is new yes he did break up with his girlfriend but not because he’s not fine don’t be stupid he’s obviously FINE stop asking please.
And then we’ve got a three episode arc and my money is still very much on the lights going out at the very end of Panic when they’re all in a hospital together because of maybe the medevac helicopter rescue they listed in the summary and maybe this causes Eddie to have A Moment that he mistakes as a health scare but is of course a panic attack and our episode ends with the lights dying and Eddie in the hospital and our team having to leave him there, thereby separating him from the squad like Buck in 3x01 and Athena in 4x01.
I would kill for there to be a scene between just Athena and Eddie where they talk and maybe she recognises how exactly not fine he is and it’s a moment of self-recognition through the other in which she sees Eddie pretending to be fine and realises that she also is doing the same thing.
I would also kill for the inevitable (if it’s not inevitable I will manifest in Timothy’s home and steal all his left socks) breakup scene between Eddie and Ana to include her getting about as much dialogue as she normally gets — roughly zero because I am petty and small minded about it and I don’t like her. And as you very correctly pointed out, they could have used the whole “Eddie gets shot” thing to solidify their relationship and instead they used it to solidify Eddie and Buck’s relationship. Outstanding heterosexuality on display there, really.
Sorry for the ramble, thanks for coming by!

Harry rescues Draco Malfoy from Azkaban, where he has been imprisoned for three years after the war. Draco is not as Harry remembers, as Azkaban leaves its mark on even the strongest of wizards. With no memory of who he was or how he came to be in Harry’s care, Draco needs Harry’s help if he is to have any hope of making a full recovery. But Harry has his own demons to fight and together with saving Draco, Harry must also discover a way to find himself.
He tells me the story of our sixth year at school. He speaks slowly, perhaps afraid of my reactions. I don’t interrupt. I listen carefully, trying to reconcile the picture of my former self in my mind with what he says. I listen. I nod. I try to make the pieces of the puzzle fit. They don’t.
“That day, I came to find you. I wanted to know what you were up to.” He closes his eyes. “You were in a bathroom, talking to Moaning Myrtle.” He opens his eyes again. “She’s a ghost. The ghost of a girl that got-” He looks at me. “Never mind. You were in the bathroom and you were crying. You were scared. Merlin, I had never seen you like that before.” He kisses me. “I’ve often thought about that moment. Afterwards. If it could it have been different. If I could have helped you somehow. What if…” He shakes his head. “I didn’t.”
“It doesn’t matter,” I say. I kiss him too. “You’re here now.”
“I am.” He kisses me again. And again.
“What happened?” I murmur against his lips. I’m not that easily distracted. I can focus around Harry sometimes. Sometimes.
He sighs. “You saw me. In the mirror. And you-” He entwines his fingers with mine. “You hexed me. And then it all went very fast. Jinxes turned to curses.” He squeezes my hand and closes his eyes again. “There was this curse I had read about in a book, and there was a scribbled note next to it, and it read-” He opens his eyes and takes a deep breath. “It read, For enemies.”
Enemies. We were enemies once; Harry told me about it several times.
He searches my face and removes a strand of hair from my eyes, tucking it behind my ear. I nod.
He goes on. “Anyway. I cast the curse. And it did this. It almost sliced you in two.”
“You didn’t know what it did,” I say. “You didn’t want to hurt me.”
He looks pained. “I don’t know.”
My heart sinks. “No, you didn’t. You didn’t mean to hurt me.” I squeeze his hand a little bit too tightly. “You didn’t mean it.”
He wraps me in his arms and holds me tight. “God, I am so, so sorry, Draco.”
“So, so, so sorry,” he whispers against my neck.
I pat his back. “I know.”
He kisses his way up to my face. “God, I want to make up for it; I want to make up for all of it.”
“Yes,” I say in a breath, closing my eyes, running my hands through his hair, and then he crushes his mouth on mine and my head spins.
We kiss, and it’s good, and it’s us, and it’s all I need. Just this. Him and me. Me and him. I can’t help but kiss him too. I kiss him, kiss him, kiss him, and he kisses me back. I taste him, and I suck on his tongue, and I hold him tight.
“Yes,” I say as he pushes me down on my back, settling between my legs without breaking the kiss. “Yes,” I say again as he licks at my neck, running his tongue over my collarbone, and then… he glances up at me. “Don’t stop,” I plead.
He kisses the tip of my scar. It’s a ghost-kiss. It’s barely there. He kisses my scar again, right under the spot he kissed before. And he does it again. And again, and again, going all the way down my scar, placing soft kisses all along its length. My skin rises in goose pimples.
This is Harry. My Harry.
“I love you,” I say.
His head snaps up. “You do.” He almost sounds surprised.
“Yes. I love you.” Because it’s true.
He smiles. He’s beautiful when he smiles. “God, I- Me too.”
He kisses my stomach. “Draco,” he murmurs against my skin. “It’s always been you.” And it feels like he’s almost talking to himself. Maybe he is.
